I am so sorry sweethearts for totally disappearing for so long.. but oh my, what a month it has been!
I have not had a life for the past month, its been the same every day; working out and writing. However, 12000 words later and I have officially finished my masters degree in law. I am so happy! but also extremely scared. I have spent so much time on this piece of work and now it is over, all in the hands of my sensors to judge. Fingers crossed it will be ok!
I have not had much time to recover after finishing, as I started my LPC course the day after handing in my dissertation. So I am pretty exhausted and tired at the moment, but it will be fine. Just need some time to get back to my normal self. I promise I will starting posting regularly again as soon as I get some rest and energy again. 

Wish you all a great week ♥

Hei Lovelies!  Hope you are all well. 

I am sorry about my absence here on the blog, but I have been without internet for a few weeks (and currently am, which is so annoying). I must however admit it has been nice as well, as I have been focusing on other things. Having said that however, I am now at the point where I miss it way too much as it is very limited what you can do without internet or TV on an evening in. 
I have been away for a week now, first in Manchester and then Budapest. I will write more about this in another post. I will be back soon enough with some more exciting posts.

Hei sweeties, hope you are all well ♥ 
I can't believe it is midweek already, time really goes too quickly!

I thought I would come with another London tips today; Madison rooftop! Madison is located by St. Pauls in London, it is a cute place with a nice view overlooking St. Pauls Cathedral and the city. There is a restaurant as well, but I just went for drinks. It is an outdoor rooftop, with some seats but be prepared to stand. It is extremely popular to go there for after work drinks or to socialize in the early evening, so there might be a queue to get in. 
It is nice to go for a few drinks, it is not too expensive and it is pretty easy to get in. However, from my point of view I would not go for more than a few casual drinks whilst looking at the nice view, it is not as cosy as other places. It is worth a visit though! 

Address: 1 New Change, St Paul?s, London EC4M 9AF
Opening hours: 11-00 to 00.00 or 01.00

Monday and a new week! 
I thought it would write a post about the difference between studying in England and in Norway. When I finished high school (videregående) I moved to Bergen to study psychology for a year. It was more a year of me figuring out what I actually wanted to do with my life and What I actually wanted to study. It was a great year though, I lived with my best friend and I really liked psychology. However, I did feel it was not 100% right for me, as I was more drawn towards law. 
Anyways, university life in Norway is pretty chilled to be honest. It is a lot of pressure, of course, but during the whole year we worked towards the end of the year exams. We had 3 modules the first 6 months which we finished with an exam or assignment just before Christmas and the next 6 months we had another 2 modules. There was seminar groups to attend, which you did not have to attend and we had a 2 hour lecture for each module. Other than that it was just lots of self studying, where you had to be really disciplined as it was a lot to cover. In general though it was pretty chilled and it really gave you time to enjoy as a student. 

In England however, it is much more intense. The term year normally starts at the end of September to the beginning of may, which shows how intense it is. During my undergrad I had 4 assignments and 4 exams over that period of time. (+ extra activities to improve my CV). It may not sound intense, but the fact that when you start your no way near ready for an assignment, as you do not have the knowledge about the material. So understandably they put all the assignments just after Christmas and the exams in early may. So from Christmas to start of may you will normally have 4 assignments (one for each module) and 4 exams, which is pretty intense. This does however vary depending on what course you do. 

I liked that it is so intense, as it gives you a long summer holiday to relax. But it is also awful as you really do not have time to anything else but uni work. My last year of my undergrad was just really awful, I had my masters application to do, lots of assignments and exams (and if you want to do well, you need to work hard). My body has never been that stressed before, and I looked pretty much like a ghost when I finished. But it was all worth it! 🎓🎓 

My point is, if you want to study abroad, there are a few things you should keep in mind. You will be studying in a different language, you will be away from close family and friends, it is pretty intense, it is mostly up to you and you will need to show engagement and interest to actually get some help from the lecturers, you will need to study a lot (as there is a different way of essay writing, different terms and words and they do not take into consideration that you are from a different country), and you will be expected to do extra activities to put on your CV (like sports clubs or societies). 
Having said this, it is a great experience. You get to experience a new culture, a new language and meet a bunch of great people from all over the world. You will develop as a person and it shows you got courage to travel abroad and take a huge step towards your career. You will have fun, and you will experience things which you probably would not if you just visited the city or country. 

I really recommend studying abroad, for me it was a easy choice with London as I love England and I wanted to go somewhere where they spoke English. However, pick whatever country you want and do it! It is definitely worth it 💙

Hei sweethearts♥ How are you all?

My Sunday is very relaxed, I have just been out for some errands and sorted some stuff for the coming week. About time last year I went to Stonehenge, which was a really nice trip. I wanted to go there since and see it in real life for a long time, so I figured out it was about time I went. It was a bus trip for about 2/3 hours if I remember correctly and we had about 2 hours to spend exploring the area when we arrived at Stonehenge. 

It was really cool to see it in real life, however I must admit it was a lot smaller than I thought it would be like. I do however find it quite fascinating how and why it is shaped like it is, who did it? and why did it happen? 
Sadly I did not have much time to spend at the museum, as I was too busy taking photos and selfies with the stones... haha. I also thought that the history and theories is something I can read about later and I therefore priorities walking around the area instead. 

This trip is definitely something I recommend, it is quick; the bus takes you directly there and back. It is cheap, I think I paid around 30 pounds for the whole trip (including tickets to the museum and area), just remember to check in advance as the prices do vary. It is a nice experience, you can either leave early in the morning and have the whole afternoon/evening when you get back to London, or you can leave in the afternoon and spend the whole morning in London. It is also possible to combine the trip to stonehenge with another trip, like Bath or another city. So even if you are in England just for a few days, it is a nice thing to do as you get to see so many other places at once. 

This is the company I used, but there are so many others as well: https://www.premiumtours.co.uk/category/stonehenge-tours 

Definitely worth the bus journey, I really enjoyed it.

Happy weekend lovelies 🌸 hope you're all having a great weekend so far. 
I am having a very chilled weekend, just focusing on uni work and relaxing really. It is actually quite nice not having any plans sometimes, watch a lot of movies, make nice food and get on top of all of my to do things. 
I realised the other day that I need to get a lot better at taking photos. When I scroll through my photos there's so many moments missing that I wish I had a photo of.. but then again, I guess it is a good thing as it shows I had a great time and were too busy to take photos. Not every moment should be photographed, some moments should be kept in your heart forever. 💗 but I like to have photos to look back at, so note to self; take more photos!

Wishing you all a great Saturday XX

Hei sweethearts 🌸 
Thursday and the week is nearly over. I have had a very quiet week, just catching up on emails and my dissertation. I do not have any exciting plans for the summer to be honest, main focus will be my dissertation. 
I am however going away at the end of the month, I got a surprise weekend away for my birthday and I am so excited. That is my only plan so far! But it will be nice. It is actually quite lovely to enjoy the summer in London for once, the weather is nice and people are enjoying it to the fullest. I am lucky! I just hope my dissertation will go smoothly so I will have some free time over the next weeks. Fingers crossed XX
