May 16th: After graduating on May 8th I left for Bergen only a mere week later. Once I got here, Bergen greeted me with her open arms of Spring delight, rain. Well, it drizzled a bit later on in the day, but arriving in Bergen after a long plane ride with Icelandair I would have accepted any kind of weather! Elin greeted me at the airport around noon on the 16th of May to usher me back to her new apartment. I was about half dead upon arrival because I was not able to sleep what so ever on the plane. So when it hit 15:00 o'clock, I was struggling to keep awake. It was literally a war. And with the 24hr days here as summer approaches, it made it just that much harder to go to bed and to stay asleep.
Day-to-day: I've been mostly keeping busy during the day getting readjusted to the time difference, playing fifa, reading, and practicing my German grammar. There is not too much to watch on TV because they show the same shows in the day as they do at night, so if you've seen it once already, don't bother turning the TV back on later. But in lieu of that we've been watching a lot of movies each day. Commercial free! I've also been going on runs around the "storlungen" or "big lung" which is a lake, that takes me about 17 minutes or so to run. The weather in the morning is usually nicer, so that is when I tend to go on my runs. Other than that, things have been going great and relaxing after a stressful final year of college is much deserved. I can worry about paying off my college loans in October!
