I’m 100% sure there are millions and millions of more things for each of these lists, but I’ve just been thinking the past couple days about all this so here’s the short version :)

Things I’m looking forward to being back in the good ole’ US of A:

cheap beer and liquor, driving a car, peanut butter, country music, my blackberry, being able to wear a sweatshirt and not feel like a slob, sunsets before midnight, small talk with strangers, not so much coffee to spare my teeth their whiteness, hardcore conservatives to argue over politics with instead of always agreeing with pretty much everyone, target, baseball/softball, kissing my boyfriend goodnight, trucks and other vehicles bigger than a mini cooper, my guitar and piano, never being nervous that i won’t understand a conversation, no school for 3 months, going to the races every friday night, other people who don’t really care too much about soccer or the world cup (sorry haha), making money instead of spending it, subway, rootbeer, and finally, most importantly, being with my friends and family and people i love all the time! Being HOME.

Things I’m going to miss after I leave the most wonderful place in the world, Norway:

brown cheese, healthy/fit people everywhere you turn, amazing public transportation, hearing norwegian being spoken around me at all times in all places, norwegian rap music, eurovision songs, extreme environmental awareness-everyone recyling everything, endless hours of daylight, all the blondes and red heads :), clothing style–aka, scarfs, skinny jeans, heel boots/flats and stripes, feeling at home in a foreign country i’m not a citizen of, jarlsberg, solo citron, mountains and the ocean, crazy norwegian reality TV shows like “Swedish Hollywood Wives” and “Paradise Hotel”, melkesjokolade/daim/all Norwegian chocolate bc it’s so much better than American chocolate, the independence i’ve found in myself from being here, and most importantly, the amazing friends i’ve made and people i love and have no clue when i’ll see again. THANK YOU FOR AN UNFORGETTABLE SEMESTER!

    1) You just made me cry. Dammit.
    2) You can get Jarlsberg cheese in the states. YAY! :-) We buy it at Sam’s Club all the time.
    3) Make it a priority to get back to Norway on vacations to visit those amazing friends & family you’ve met!
    4) Teach Americans how to dress like Norwegians! Start your own revolution in Hanley! :-)
    5) You will never lose that independence you’ve found over there. I am so proud of you.

    I LOVE YOU!!!!
