Since I got back from my short break from school I’ve had some trouble getting started on the new assignments. They’re really interesting, and I’ve done tons of reading and looking for references, but I’m not actually writing anything. Which is very unusual for me… Today, to get some new scenery while writing me and a friend decided to go to a café across the street to “buy some motivation” as we jokingly call it. Ended up buying a strawberry smoothie.
I have to say, that even though we had a little trouble focusing in the beginning and then had some internet troubles, I actually got started. I’ve written about 300 words. The essay isn’t finished by a long-shot, but it’s a start.
Since I got here I’ve learned so many new things. Both in the classroom and from the culture here and from my new friends. I love how we have discussions (or mostly we’re just agreeing with each other) on facebook, how we send links and articles to each other. I’ve become so much more aware of the problems, both global and in Sweden, since I got here. Right now, even though I have lots of studying to do, I’m reading about laws concerning people with HIV and sex. Me and a classmate actually have different views on the topic, which is so much fun! I love hearing different views on things, it forced me to read more and really form an opinion!
