Gonna try to get up pictures from the last weeks. May not write so much but a picture are suppose to say more than a 1000 words so hoping for that now. ^^
So it was my 25 birthday at the end of October and I had a small (30 people) party in my flat. It was so much fun and I am so glad I got to celebrate that day with all the amazing people that I have gotten to know so far here in Oxford. I am so blessed to have so many beautiful people in my life, you all bring me so much joy! Thank you Annika for the mug and the great idea of letting everyone at the party sign it, will be a memory for life.

I’m still alive!
Just keeping myself to busy or Uni is keeping me busy. Have had one paper due per week since week 2, now it is time to get to the heavy stuff though. It’s time for the last exams and essays in two weeks, so will not really get any more free time until that is done.
But even though I’m tired, stressen and exhausted, I really do love it here. It is so fun and I have learn so much so far from being here. That I’m so happy and glad that I get to stay for one more semester, so will only be going home to Sweden for Christmas-break then it is back to Oxford and Brookes at the end of Januari. This is such a great experience and opportunity that I wanna get as much out of it as possible and by staying for a whole year. I will really be able to get good English language and experience to carry with me for the rest of my life, what ever I will be doing.
For now that will be all, just got home from Uni after been there 9 am-9 pm. So now it is time for bed, I think I really deserve it at least. Picture is a typical day for me at the moment. #studentlife
It’s been a few hectic weeks now, visit from my parents, then birthday weekend, a friend over from Sweden and on top of it all I been sick on and off. Now I’m okay with the sickness, just little cough but otherwise I’m fine. Though it’s been so stressfull to do everything, every free minute I had I’ve been studying. Having one paper due per week it tough, I’m not used to it and then to have other stuff to do as well and wanting to spend time with my family and friends who come and visit. It’s exhausted in the end but also the best thing ever.
I’ve had so good times with them all, doing so much sightseeing, shopping and eating great food while hanging out with some of the best people I have in my life fills up the battery but only so much.
Now I’m looking forward to next week when I only have school and me to think about. It will be so nice to have time to rest and just do nothing in the evenings haha. Sounding like an old lady, but I’m looking forward to it so much, I really need it. But first, going to Edinburgh this weekend haha. Good luck to me!
Mom and Dad’s ”just a little lunch” haha
We went to see The Lion King, it was so amazing and so well made. It was one of the best musicals I ever have seen live. If you have the time and possibility you all should go see it.

Portobello Road, in Nothing Hill, and its Sunday market. It was such a nice place to just walk through.
Tea is a ”I have to” here in England, the land of tea.
And finally on the bus to Oxford ^^
Now Mamma Mu and Peter Pan has left England, they landed safely back home in Sweden as well. So all is good!
> Mamma Mu is a kids book in Sweden
Peter Pan is a more famous book for all I believe <
I have a lot of studying to catch up on now but when I have the time I will post more pics from London and also from my parents stay here in Oxford. Be patient and soon you will get to see it all.
Finally are my parents here in England with me! It’s awesome and I’m having the best time ever. We started with 3 days in London and went straight from the bus stop to Oxford Street for some shopping and window watching. It was so beautiful.
First there is some pics from when we hade dinner at a restaurant called Cote Brasserie. Very good food, nice service and very easy for me with gluten free food. The server that we got knew exactly what I ment by asking for gluten free and she had memorized the menu so I could just order what I wanted and she could straight away tell me if I could get it or not. That is awesome for me that has celiac disease. I could really recommend this restaurant!
I and my mom got the Beef bourgogne, which are the two pics first below. The only difference was that she got some fried bread and I didn’t, but I did not mind that. It was delicious anyway!
My dad got some pork belly and cabbage with creamy potato. Also really good!
For desserts mom got chocolate fondant and vanilla ice cream, and I got cream brulee which is my favorite!
We walked by Selfridges on the way to the hotel in the evening and they already have there Christmas decorations in the windows, so pretty.
Here are some random pics I took along the way to the hotel, for me this is looking so typical English haha.
So two days ago it was the one month in Oxford mark. This is going to fast!
I can’t believe how fast time passes by, it is insane. But one month has now gone and that sadly means that it is only two more months on this semester! Then at least I will be with my lovely family again and give them all my biggest hugs they ever gotten from me haha. I’m not so much homesick but of course am I missing them.
I am gonna make the best of this time and that way I will always have Oxford in my heart and mind, with me where ever I do.
