Long time no see!

I know, I know.

I haven't updated in forever but I'm not too fond of blogspot. I recently found out that people actually still follow this blog though, so I should take that as a sign to keep on with it. Purely because this is my only serious blog about my exchange where I show you what I'm really doing and talk about the culture and such. I have however made two new videos since my last update so if you haven't seen them here:

Matilda Birthday Video
Sweden video blog #6

I'm going to make a new video blog soon about what a day in my school here is like. I know that is something I would want to see if I was watching someone in another country and I think it will be a lot of fun!
A lot has happened since I last updated, first off, I changed host families! I've been with this new family for about 2 weeks now and we already get along really well. They are super chill and I can tell I'm going to really like them even more. I bought a gym card for a month (they got ride of their 3 month membership thing which SUCKKKSSS) Which ends this Friday. It sucks sometimes because when I want to buy a membership or something I need for the rest of my stay they have long contracts for a year or more and I'm not going to be here that long! So it would be a waste of money to buy a year membership so I just have to buy a bunch of month ones. My Birthday is Friday! I'm so excited 13 of my best friends are coming over and having dinner. I'm making tacos and for dessert I'm putting out 4 huge marabous and these swedish treats called "chocolate balls" They seem normal but they are different than you think I will show pictures after friday. I really can't think of anything else right now. School is going great, I start 3rd period soon which means ALL new classes ): I'm going to miss all my classes now because I've gotten so used to the teachers and students. I also went to Uppsala last weekend and visited a friend. It was a lot of fun because Uppsala is my favorite city in Sweden it's so cozy and adorable. Anyway.... I will update more but now I'm going to Vasby to have dinner with fedde and his mom so we can talk about our ski trip to Åre on Sportlov! So excited!

Hej då!
