8th of October did end in a BAM💥!

So I get back home from the trip to the Holy Island. I find my ring. This day can from now on ONLY get better😎!

We'd planned this event for weeks and finally it was the D-day, or as we would like to call it, the G-day💁!

Before our guests arrived we'd planned a three course dinner, and the theme for the dinner was *drumroll* Italiano 🍕🍴. For starters, which Divie and I were in charge of was tomatoes and mozzarella with balsamico vinegar, oregano, and some basilica🍅. The main course was Pasta Pomodoro🍝. And the desert I've no idea what it was. It was Celeste (the Mexican girl) who had made it. It was delicious😍! Everything was just perfect👌. Between the dishes everyone had come up with a drink and a game to present in their room. So in my room we'd shots (shocker) and played Russian Roulette (cause I miss my Russian half, Anastasiaaaaaaaa👯❤!!!). The rules are really simple. You have the same amount of shot glasses as people playing the game. You pour water in all the glasses EXCEPT one, which you pour vodka in. Then everyone take one glass each (they don't know which glass who contains vodka). Count to three, everyone take their shot and the person who had the vodka shot is out. I changed the rules a little. So the first time I knew which one of the glasses was the one with vodka but the next time, the one that was out had to pour the next round so I wouldn't know. In the end when it was only two people left I just poured both glasses with vodka🍸😎.

After the dinner and the games, the guests started to arrive. We'd put up a beer pong table for them to use if they wanted, and they did!! So fun! We'd also put up a post on the Stephenson's Building (our accommodation building) group if there was anyone with a speaker and if they wanted to lend it to us. If they did, that person + 1 could come as a "thanks you for letting us borrow your speaker" gesture😁. Our neighbour had one that we could borrow. He also came along with the speaker of course but he didn't bring a friend... Cool👀! But no, that was nice of him to lend it to us🙏! When going downstairs to get some air this guy wants to get into the building cause someone had ordered kebab. We had a little chat with him before he went upstairs. Shortly he came down telling us that they didn't opened the door and he still had the kebab left. Niklas (my friend) decide to buy the kebab, so now he was £10 shorter but 2 kebabs richer🍢.

After our pre-party we all left for the club. We went to Perdu, which is a cool place here in town. It's like an alley you walk into (but it's still one place you're at) and then you can walk around to different clubs (still one place when referring to were you are!!). There's this specific one that we always go to. They have the best dance floor!! Best music!! Best everything🙌!!

0200-ish, now all we could think of was to run back home and eat that kebab Niklas bought and hid under my bed🙊🏃! I had been wearing high heels all night so I decided to take them off once we were outside the club and on our way back home. Half way back home I step on something sharp and get this tiiiiiiny tiiiiiiny cut under my foot but there's blood EVERYWHERE😂😅! Anyway, this doesn't stop me. Adam and I ran back home to find out that Newcastle has the WORST kebab in the world, such a disappointment! My room smelled kebab as well, we didn't think of that, now did we😷...

We've only gotten amazingly good feedback about the #flat28 party. Soon there will be another one, promise!

Well,

Cheers mate!

The 8th October did NOT start well😓.

First I woke up to see that my phone hadn't charged at all and I only had 10% cause apparently my adapter is broken, the fuse had burned... I had to live with these 10% the entire day. It was going to be a disaster😑. I did pack down an adapter + charger cause I thought that we might go and eat at a restaurant and they could maybe let me charge my phone there. While packing my back for the trip I notice that I'm NOT wearing my ring😱😨... This ring is not just a ring. I'm the third generation wearing it and my mom had finally given it to me after thinking that I'm old enough for a jewellery like that💍. She gave it to me before I started my Bachelor so I've been wearing it for a while now. Anyway, I panicked of course. I don't have the best memory either so trying to remember where I could've put it is seriously like a mission impossible, and I mean one of those kinds were there's no Tom Cruise to come and save the day. I looked everywhere; under the bed, on the bed, on the floor all over my room, but I couldn't find it. At this point I just had to let it go and run to the bus🏃🏃.

I felt so sorry for my friend during the whole trip. She did try to cheer me up🙆, telling me that we're here on this trip and that there wasn't that much I could do anyway while I was there so I should just enjoy the view, and I was just this bitch telling her that it was a family ring I had inherited and that's not something you could let go of just like that🙍. She was right though, I should've just let it go for a while just for the trip and then when I got home I could look for it, cause it had to be at home so it would eventually turn up again. I tried my best to enjoy the trip and not ruin it for her, hehe😅...

When we arrived back home I just ran back home. I couldn't wait anymore, I just wanted to find my ring😬! I soon as a got home everyone was in my room trying to find it. I hadn't locked my door so my flatmates could look around but no one had found it yet😖. I only left the apartment once so one of my flatmates had walked by the store earlier that day that I'd been to and asked the staff if they'd seen a golden ring anywhere in the store. It melted my cold heart💙, so sweet of her😘.

I FOUND IT✊🌀🎉🏆💍! GOD! My parents had called me several times during the day and I just couldn't tell them what had happened. I was so scared to tell them and I was so ashamed. Finally my mom had given me the ring and then I lose it? No. Noway I'm telling them😳! I did take it off apparently, and I'd put it on my desk, which I had predicted cause that would be the only time and reason I would take it off, before bedtime😴💤. When I'd woke up in panic, trying to find the ring I'd tried to clear my desk to see if I could find it. When a moved around things, such as my computer, it had stuck under the cover of my computer case and I couldn't see it😐.

When you lose your phone you can always call it and then you can hear where it is but when you lose something else you can't do that. Those times when it's not your phone I just imagine the object, in my case my ring, lying wherever it is and just screaming: I AM HERE! HERE! LOOK OVER HERE🙋🙋🙋!

So the trip was fun haha😅😂! We went to this castle (so many castles in this country). Apparently in the 1700 some rich dickhead bought the place and now this family lives there that have inherited the place. It was one of those places where back in the days it was a whole town living there, behind the walls🏰, It must've been the smallest town but still, cute😌! After looking around we went to the Holy Island that is located on an island, which you can only get to when the tide is low and we only had around 2 hours to look around before we had to leave before it was too late.

Well,

Cheers mate!

So Wednesday nights are game nights. This Wednesday it was rugby time🏉!

First the girls team were playing. It was Northumbria University against some other university I don't remember. After the girls it was time for the guys. During the girls game there were NO ONE there but when the guys were playing EVERYONE was there. I guess also because the guy were playing Northumbria University vs. Newcastle University. They are rivals😈.

Northumbria were in the lead throughout the whole game but then in the LAST second of the game Newcastle score and wins the came with 1 score, ONE SCORE, COME ON😵😓! Oh well, it was a fun experience.

They had this thing that all the guys that had played in the team for two years were supposed to wear a pink shirt and the ones that had played for three years had a waistcoat. These guys had now graduated and was just cheering for their old uni team I think, don't now any other reason why they weren't playing. These guys were cheering better than the cheerleading team (I'll get back to them later👇). They had this cheering song were they took of their shoes and was shouting something I never understood... But is was fun to watch.

So the cheerleading squad was also there, even during the girls game, but for no purpose, and they sucked at cheering. Sorry but not sorry, they have to know the truth and start to learn what cheering is about. Let me tell you what it's NOT about; sitting on the stands and do nothing. It's about CHEERING!!! Jump up and down, cheer on your team and have a routine you do at the side of the pitch during the game and not only during half game, for heaven's sake 😑*facepalm*! Also, it was only the Northumbria cheerleaders team that was there, I didn't see Newcastle's team so I guess they'll get an A for (a)effort😕

They had a routine they performed during half game. I don't want to say it but that was the worst ting I've ever seen... I mean, no, I couldn't have done it better but I'm not a cheerleading so no one expect me to but they're... They were out of step with each other and the music, it was horrible to watch. I felt sorry for them, I did😐.

I don't know the rules for this game but I learned a few things; when you score you get 5 points (if I remember it correctly) and depending on where behind the finish line you did your "touchdown" or whatever they call it, you back up 5 meters (I THINK) and form there you kick the "ball" and if you score between those while things you'll get 2 additional points. Maybe I don't remember the rules that good... And then I never understood why they did the spider, as I call it. They hook on to each other and push each other trying to get the "ball". WHATEVER, it was fun! I'll go again if there's another game, FOR SURE👍!

Well,

Cheers mate!

So last week, school arranged a trip to Alnwick Castle were two or three scens from the first Harry Potter move were taken. I mean, yeah it was super cool to have been where they recorded the movie but I was more fascinated about the architecture. It was this huge castle made in like 1096. That is SICK! How did they do all the decorations with the stones, or lift the blocks to the highest point, or know how to do everything. Did they even know what a wall was back then, or a fan...? I might sound stupid but I'm amazed😮.

(It's like that I didn't know about the tunnel between France and England UNDER THE WATER, which is like 50.2 miles. I don't know if they meant English miles though. They opened that tunnel up in 1994, WTF! I'm done😶.)

What happen is that when we were walking around the castle, we end up inside a library and the staff are telling us how old this place is and how we should walk around and look around. I'm think "okay, aren't they cute to guide us around and tell us where we should go and all". When looking around I'm amazed of how old this place is but looks so fresh and well kept. After a while I see this beanbag chair and react to it and think to myself "they didn't have those things back in the days, or did they". I continue to look around and I see multiple bottles of Coca Cola, soda, water, alcohol bottles such as Absolute Vodka (SWEDEN REPRESENTS🇸🇪!). I start to wonder when I turn around and I see a flatscreen TV, and THEN I start too see all the family photos IN COLOUR of this family that APPARENTLY LIVES IN THIS HARRY POTTER CASTLE! FUCK ME FOR LOVING IN A LITTLE SHELTER BACK HOME IN SWEDEN💩!!!

This family lives there for 5 months and then they move to their second "home" in Scotland for 7 months so this place can be opened up for public. This is how they finance the place to keep it neat and tidy. To know, when walking around there, that I'm at this very moment walking around in someone "house" (I'll not stop putting them quotation marks up when writing house, cause that ain't a house!) was so weird so I just ran out! I thought this place belonged to a dead family, not a living one. I neither did know that they weren't home so my friend played my by saying that they might be at the bathroom or in their rooms but soon maybe want to watch TV and come downstairs, LOL, and I believed her😂.

I found this if anyone are interested in read about what goes down there: https://www.alnwickcastle.com/explore/history/the-percy-family/percy-family-today .

Yesterday was Kanelbullens dag. For those who don't know what this day is about; it's a day where you eat cinnamon buns for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. No joke! And for the one of you who do know what this day is about, I salute you✊.

During the second week here we found a Swedish cafeteria where they're selling the most important things when not having a fully Swedish store, and I'm VERY grateful for this🙌.

For this special day there were not other place I would rather be then this place. When walking in there, it feels like... being in a Swedish embassy or something. If there would be a disaster of some sort and you had to find your embassy for protection, I would run to DALA (the name of the cafeteria) by mistake🇸🇪!

The staff there knows us by now, and they're the sweetest ones💜.

We bought yourself's a cup of tea (of course, no shitty coffee in this country😷, I hate coffee!), and the cinnamon bun, of course. With the tea he also gave us a gingerbread😱😍! I hope that it was a complementary cause we were Swedes, I don't know but it melted my stone cold heart💙 They still had the seatings outside, so we took a seat in the sun and just had a fab Kanelbullens dag😎☀.

I think this was the first time I celebrated this day properly🙊.

Well,

Cheers

So I went to that meeting I wrote about weeeeeeeeks ago. I'm sorry about the delay. So he didn't want me to coach, that was a misunderstanding from my side, I think. What he wanted to do was to coach ME. He wants to prepare me for a fight... I've been trying to prepare myself for months to get a fight back home in Muay Thai, why or how can I start to trust someone I just met to prepare me for a fight in boxing....?😟

I did think that boxing would be easy, but daaaaaamn, I have to change my stands and all... Ain't nobody got time for that...😅

I did get excited about the idea but after the proposal, which I said yes to btw, I've only been to one session, and guess why? CAUSE I HURT MYSELF THE FIRST DAY! You might wonder why, well I'll tell you why.👺

​Back home and in MANY different clubs they uses mitts. These are the things someone holds up for you. which you then will throw punches at. Some people don't use the big model, the rectangular one, but maybe the smaller and rounder one. Some does not use mitts at all but those who don't know what the risks are and what you should do to minimise injures, trust me I've practice with all the three different methods above so I know the drill, not to brag but... Yeah. During the first session here, were the majority are beginners they decided to NOT use any kind of mitts at all. First I though "maybe they don't have any because this it's a school team and they might not have the budget for it", but I was wrong😕. I saw a bunch of them in a carriage😐. The trick not to hurt yourself or the one you're holding the mitts for is to meet the punch. It means that when the other person comes in for a jab or a cross or whatever you will do the same but maybe not with the same power. This is not knowledge a lot of the beginners obtain and its understandable but they should be told right away.
​So I'm pared up with this beginner that's originally a runner😑. She doesn't punch as you're supposed to (which is something you'll have to get used to when you are practicing with beginners, but they'll get there eventually) and I'll not tell her how, first time I see her. When it's my turn to throw the punches she do not meet the punches and she also moves around at the same time cause she is afraid of getting hit in the face👊. Now, everyone might do mistakes even something who are good at it BUT I have veeery seldom hit someone in the face when they hold a mitts for me, the correct way. If you move around the chances of me score a "head shoot" is much bigger than if you would've just stayed still💁. Just a note for next time, whatever your name was. So yeah, back to my injury. When the person don't meet your punch you might get hurt and also the other person. The other person; cause when they recieve the punch it will be some sort of a bounce effect on their arm and that can later develop an injury if you don't stop letting the arm bounce, in your shoulder. For me on the more important hand, will try to hit her hand with all my power and technics to learn (of course), the pain will hit my elbow, especially my jab arm (left arm if I'm right handed). Try to punch the air couple of times and see what happens, in a while it feels like, PAINFUL😵😰! So now you know. I haven't been there for 2 weeks now... I should maybe say something to my coach...

Well,

Cheers mate!

I HATE people that do promotion because they have this personality or this attitude, I do not know what it is with them but it is something that I do not like. Days before I came to England, this cute guy added me on Facebook. Adam told me right away that he was a promoter. A couple of days after I had arrived I get a message from this guy about a promo job. I did not know if I wanted to do it at first but later I thought, why not! So I told him yes. He told me to change my cover photo, so if you (Facebook friends) were wondering why I had changed my cover photo to the one I have now you now know why. He told me to first come along one night to see how everything works and then after freshers week was over I would be able to start doing jobs and get payed, WOHOO! (I am selling my soul!)​. At this point I do not know much and he will contact me soon again, I do not know how this will turn out to be either, but it might be fun!

Stay tuned for more event promos, lol

Cheers mate!

​So yesterday was the tryout for the school boxing team. I had sign up for football, MMA (but only going to the kickboxing practices), and boxing. I have been training thaiboxing with MMA people before and they tend to be too rough for me (I heard it...!) so I decided to only go to the boxing tryout and just skip the football because they were too serious for me, I am just going to be here for one semester, so.... Anyway, I went there and I told them that I was not going to do anything cause I was having a cold (still do) and that I just came to show my interest and to see what level people were at. They were all beginners, shocker! I told them right away that I have been practicing muay thai for 1,5 years and that I am NOT going to go through all the basic things again, but if they did have anything for advanced people or something in a faster speed I was interested. He told me okay and that I should come back another day and gave me the schedule. I went home, nothing happened. THEN, today I woke up by an unknown phonically but it was local cause there were no +46 or anything, so I answer. It was one of the coaches from the day before that told me to come back another day if I was interested in the advanced classes. He told me that he was sorry if he was too short during our conversation because he was too busy to talk and that he and the HEAD COACH of the school boxing team would like to have a sit-down with me tomorrow over a cup of tea (LOVE how people here do not suggest coffee, I HATE that shit!!!) about what I could bring to the team. Because I have been practicing muay thai for so long he thought that I could be a great "asset" for them. I am a bit nervous about the meeting tomorrow cause what if I am not what they thought and I still have a cold so I can not practice and I have not been practicing at all this entire summer so I might not be able to show them what I got and when I do I WILL be out of shape!!!!! GAAAAH!!!! I am going to be cool about it, just gonna play it cooooooool! WISH ME LUCK!!

Well,

Cheers mate!

​Today we went to another city called Durham. Apparently the best school for biology and chemistry is there, Durham university. Not interesting BUT there is a cathedral right next to the school and in there they filmed some of the scenes for Harry Potter!!! The scenes where they walk around the student halls are filmed there. It was really cool walking around there, I mean everything looked smaller then the movies but short people look taller on TV so I guess they did some photoshopping. It was not that much more to see (if you only came for the Harry Potter experience) so we kind of went back home right after. We are planning to go to Scotland to continue our Harry Potter hunting. I think the Hogwarts castle is there.

The Harry Potter toure will be continued,

Well,

Cheers mate!

It fels like I never left Sweden. Not only because I am here with like 10 people form class from Sweden and because there are two Swedish girls living in the same flat as I am but, except the H&M stores it feels like I see Swedish things everywhere. Clas Ohlsson exists here, only if you are a Swede you will understand the surprise, or you do not. There is sooooooo many Swedish student at the school, which I did not know, that this school was so attractive to Swedish people. Then today we passed a cafeteria, which is owed by a Swedish couple from Katrineholm. The place is called DALA and they sell Kalles kaviar, herring from ABBA, Marabou chocolate, Ahlgrens bilar, YOU NAME IT, AND they have breakfast! Also, everywhere you go there is a Swedish song on the radio. One of the things that gives it away that I am not in Sweden is the cheap alcohol prices. 

I really do not miss home and I know that I have been bad at calling family and friends but I mean, they understand, I am busy with settling down, getting to know new culture and people, yeah, you know. I am not going to be here for a long time, 3 and a half month, so it feels like I have to do as much things as possible because I am on my way back home soon...

Did not have that much to say more than I am sorry for not uploading more frequently but I am starting to getting a life (LOL),

Well,

Cheers mate!
