A holly jolly Christmas to all of you out there. The turkey is in the oven, and dinner will soon be served. I’m spending Christmas day with some of my friends and my wonderful guy. My best friend arrived a couple hours ago and will spend two weeks with us, best gift ever. From all of us, here in Hawaii, Mele Kalikimaka <3

Oh, happy tree.

Christmas is sneaked up on me and before I knew it there´s only a couple of days left to christmas. I still need to ship my family´s christmas gifts to the other side of the world. I need a christmas miracle if they´re going to make it in time. Luckily, I have a backup plan that´s being shipped from within Norway. Cleaverness, I must say.

So right now I´m just spending my days in a sugar coma while baking all the christmas cookies and waiting for christmas to come. In only five days, my best friend arrives in Hawaii and I can hardly wait. How´s everybody holding up before christmas? All pau? ♥

No coffee. Just late hours.

Finals are right around the corner and that means a lot of late hours on my behalf. With two presentations, three final exams, and five papers to write in a week, I guess one could say I´m starting to feel the pressure of finals week. This weekend is gonna be all about the books, and studying with no fun in sight. But, there is a but. It´s going to feel so good when next friday is here and it is all over. A month with vacation, visit from my best girl and the homecoming of two of my friends from freshman year. One of them is only visiting shortly, but the other one is coming back to study. I can´t wait to see them all.

Little by little the christmas spirit has taken over my body with christmas shopping and christmas music played every single minute. It´s my first christmas in Hawaii and my first one without my family present. It´s going to be good to celebrate with my boyfriend and a couple of friends, but I´m going to miss my family like crazy. I already do.

From Norway with love
