Time for a little update!

I have now Christmas holiday, my last exam went ok. But it is hard to know before you get the grade. Of course I could have read more, I did not do such a great job there:p I also went for a “julebord” at Grønnland kirke, I had a really good time and the food was great. I talked to some people I did not know from before, and I just have to say that they have two really cool and good priest in this church. The next day I went to a party for students going to UKT (Ungdom, Kultur og Tro). That is what I am studying this year. It was nice to meet people outside the school, and get to know them better. In March me class is going for a 5 days trip to London.I also have to say that I cleaned my room in Oslo, before I travelled to Godøya!

On Wednesday I came back, and the first evening I visit some friends, and we had a bible group. I had a great evening, and I really miss to have such a fellowship in Oslo.
The next day I went for a spinning lesson, together with my football team, I haven’t trained so much this fall, so it were hard, but at the same time good:)

It doesn’t seem that it will be a white Christmas this year, of course you never know! But it is not so important for me, I am really looking forward to spend Christmas at home this year. Last year I had a different and good Christmas in Uganda. I am looking forward to spend Christmas together with my family and friends:) There is much I can say I am looking forward to, one of the first thing is Førjuls turneringa , that is a local football tournament, that has really become a good tradition. I am playing for a team called Couzins, together with my cousins;)

On the plan from Oslo to Vigra we flew over Jotunheimen, and all I saw was white snow, you saw the mountains going up and down, but snow covered it all. It reminded me of when we flew to Uganda last year, over Sahara, where it was only sand for a long while.Both places were beautiful!

I had a lovely trip to London, I went together with my brother and two cousins. Our main goal was to see Tottenham play home at White Heart Lane against Birmingham. I arrived a Thursday, and went and visited Marte, before I went into the town and meet Stig-Johnny. IF you want to read more about my visit with Marte, I have written more about it here. I would really advice you to visit Marte in London. On Friday we used the day to walk around in the town, and saw many famous places, and we also visited a Star Wars exhibition, I also got to meet Darth Vader:p Later we saw Hitman at the cinema, the same evening Nils-Ove and Daniel also arrived.

On Saturday we decide to find out if there was a musical we could go to, Marte also came into town, and took control, and we went and saw Lord of the Rings musical. I loved it, and think it was great. We also walk around i the town a littlebit, and the three others saw Beowolf on a 3d cinema.

On Sunday it was time for the football match, I was sure Tottenham was going to win. I was planning to by a team shirt, but I just both a scarf in stead. We found our places and where ready. The players came in, and we cheered, but after the first half, Birmingham was leading. In the first 15 minutes of the second half, Robbie Keane scored two goals, and now I was sure they where going to win. Than Birmingham scored, Robbie Kean got a red card, and at overtime, a Swedish player scored a great goal… for Birmingham :/ So Tottenham lost, but it was still a great experience. In he evening we ate at an Indian restaurant, really good food, before we took the desert at an Ice cream restaurant.

On Monday I stood up before the others, and went to see the castle, Hyde Park, Green Park and St.James Park, and this morning the sun were up and the sky was blue. I meet many squires and birds. Especially the Squirrels and Pelicans I enjoyed. And it was a really good end for my trip in London.

En liten historie

En liten gutt går på stranden med sin far en morgen. Stormen som var dagen før har stilnet, men tilbake på stranden ligger tusenvis av sjøstjerner som sakte, men sikkert tørker inn og dør. Den lile gutten plukker opp en enslig sjøstjerne og kaster den ut i vannet igjen. Faren sier: "Hvorfor gjør du dette? Du klarer aldri å redde alle uansett. Det betyr jo ingenting i den store sammenhengen." Den lille gutten svarer: "Nei jeg gjør ikke det, men for akkurat denne sjøstjernen betyr det alt i hele verden..."

Working for Hald

The last week I have been driving 2100 km. Why? I have been working for Hald Internasjonale Senter. I have been visiting 10 schools, where I have tried to get people to sign up for Hald next year. Kritisand- Gvarv in Telemark-Bergen-Stavanger-Oslo (and many other places). It was really interesting, and I also got to visit some people. In Bergen I meet Iris, Sandra and Anna-Lena, I want to thank them for housing me, and for a nice visit.In Stavanger I stayed with Ingrid parents, and I also got the house for myself. So thank you all!. I stopped to say Hi to Ole Johan and Ingjerd in Lyngdal, and that was very nice.

I did not bring my camera, so I do not have any pictures to show you. Today I have just rested, but the next days I have to finish two papers and hand them in on Wednesday.On Thursday I am going to London together with my brother and two cousins. On Sunday we are going to see Tottenham (my favourite team) play against Birmingham.And hopefully I will also get to meet Marte.I will of course bring my camera and put out pictures on the blog.

I did not have a map book, I just printed out maps from, where I saw how to get from a one place to another. The problem is that it is not so good, the maps are small and it doesn’t say which signs to follow. But usually I drove correctly, if I was not sure, I just stopped and asked. When I was going from Bergen to a place called Ølensvåg, the maps told me that I had to take two ferries. The first was easy to find, but the second one I did not find. So I stopped after driving around for a while, asked if somebody could direct me. The answer they gave me was this: There is a tunnel now, the ferry has been down for 3-4 years:pBut I got to all the places in time!!

I’m still alive

It is almost three weeks since I wrote about the water problem here in Oslo. It lasted under five days, and they found nothing wrong with it. So I did not get sick, and I can no drink water directly from the spring. By the way, boiled water is not so good.

This fall the time has just flown by, almost at Warp speed. I have talked to many people about it, and we have concluded that the time has started to go fast now. When we where children/younger, I remember that some days, for example Christmas Eve, went by sooooo slow. But now, the days flies by, even if you are having a great day with much to do, but also if you do nothing.

Since I am talking about time. Most of my fellow students say that they have so much to do, that the day should be loner, so they could to everything that they want to do, or at least have to do. People (also non students) are stressed, school, work, social activities, training, resting, making food, and more. It is too much to for one person, when we just have 24 hours day.But for me? I feel I have good time to do what ever I want, if it is to study, train, read, to be social or even to relax. So I wonder why is it like this? I have said that the time flies, but at the same time I have time to do the thing I want. And many people are having too little time.

When I am going to school, I have to take a buss ride; it takes around twenty minutes, than I like to read. Not school work, but books that I want to read. I read different kinds, but most of them have been in the Fantasy genre. But the book I have enjoyed most, and a book that has given me some thoughts is: The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho. A lovely book, easy to read, and the story is good. At the same times there is a lot of wisdom, or at least some ideas that you maybe can related to your life. About listening to your heart and follow your dreams.It at least got me start thinking for a while, I am nor sure a agree 100 % with him, about all. But still... And of course I liked the story!I really recommend this book, both for the story and also the idea behind it.

Water problem

Because of a parasite called Giardia and cryptosporidium here in Oslo, I have now to boil water. To use as drinking water for: food, brushing teeth and so on. We got the message today after I had finished eaten breakfast and brushed my teeth! And they say now that this parasite maybe has been in the water for some days. It will take around one or two week before you will get sick (if you get). I have as usually drunk a lot of water the last days.But I am sure I am not going to get sick:)
Of course I have bought some water, it was not easy since all the big bottles has been sold out. Think people has a little panic, but I will just boil some and put in the fridge!

Under is a team picture of the players that went to Malta before the season

Yesterday I went together with Jan Harald to see Holmenkollen and Vigelandsparken.It was good to be a little tourist in Oslo, and I hope that I will be able to go to a ski jumping contest this winter season. I have here some pictures under.

Yesterday I was at a birthday party for a friend of mine, it was really nice to meet so many friends. We had a good time with cakes, salads and just talking.After some hours we decided to play a game, at first it was going to be a card game, but than it changed and we played a game called “Fantasi” in Norwegian. I am not sure about what it is in English, maybe imagination or fantasy.

If you do not know this game, I will explain it short: It is a board game, where you have cards with five categories/colours on each card. You play in teams, you role the dices and you land on a colour, and than you are going to mime or draw the thing/name/event that is on your card, and your team have to guess. You have 1 minute on each round. If people do not get what I am trying to mime at first, I am in big trouble, since I am not so good at this game:p

When we where going to decide the teams, one girl said: let’s play boys against girls”. We said ok, since girls is known to play this a lot, and are really good at it, we where the “Underdogs” and had nothing to lose. It was a close game, we changed at having the lead, halfway the girls where leading. But at the end we got the victory. We jumped up and cheered, we where glad:)

So maybe you are reading this, you are maybe wondering: Why does he write about this?Because I thought it was so fun to beat girls in “Fantasi” :)

Back to Hald

(Paullet and me with brand New t-shirt from Laos, a pressent from Salome)

This weekend Me and Per went for a trip back to Hald. Of course it was a little bit strange to be there with out the rest of the last year. We met also Eline, Elise, Adreas and Paulette (she is now a ettåring). And it was fun to meet Faith and Pamela, the two girls the we meet at FOCUS when we were in Kampala. And I also got to talk to most of the teachers before they took their weekend break. So I got to have a little of last year :)
(Andreas, Paulette, Elise, Faith and Per)
It was also fun to talk to the new Hald students, to hear what they where thinking about the time at Hald and about their stay abroad or in Norway. They looked like a good gang, so it will be fun to follow them true their blogs. I am sure that they will have a great time!

One thing I did not now that they had at Hald is a Sauna, and when I asked Agnar, he said he did not know before last week. So we have gone at Hald for one year, and missed the chanced to use the sauna.I will put a picture of the Sauna and some others from the weekend under:
(Me, Pamela, Faith and Paulette)

Kay in Oslo

I have now been in Oslo for around 3 and half week. I have had a good start at my school and I think that the classes are really interesting. The second week my class went for a trip together, and that was a good way to get to know each other. One of the things I am looking forward to on this study is that we are going to work practical all the semesters. Soon we will get to know where we are placed, this first semester we are mainly using time to get to know the practice place, the people and the area.

I am living at a place called Brekke; it is a place north in Oslo. It is really near to Marka, which is really nice to go for a walk, jog, cycling and in winter skiing. I am planning to buy a bike, so that I can cycle there, it looks so fun.I live together in an apartment in the second floor in a house, together with two nice girls. So fare there has been no arguments:p

What else should I write? I went to see Norway beat Argentina 2-1, that was lovely :) I still don’t have internet at home, but that will come on Thursday. (But my computer is sent in to be fixed). On Friday I am going to Hald, the school where I went to last year. I am going to visit people I know prom Uganda and one girl I went to school with. So I am looking forward to that.

Here is some more pictures from my apartment:
