Roadtrip, Re-exams & Driving license

The UK Southern Roadtrip:
Alright, it’s been almost three weeks since I got home from the roadtrip. I have so many photos just waiting to be shared (and I really look forward to going through them all again). I am planning to post some this week because I really look forward to share it all. It was a very good trip and I learned a lot, not just about England, but also about myself and of course about my friend Matt.

Where to begin? Back in May Richard passed away just before most of my oral exams. Naturally I couldn’t think straight at all and so my friend Maiken made sure they were all moved. She even signed me up for all the re-exams too. She is seriously one of the best people I know – You are amazing bae #shoutout. It’s been almost three months since he passed and it has not really gotten any easier. The only thing I feel is different now compared to then is that I don’t cry all day everyday. It comes in waves.  I’ve had an extremely hard time to focus and remembering things, so taking these re-exams has really been challenging. My first Exam was in Legal English, which I have passed. My second one was in Corporate Communication, which I have moved to 6th semester. The last one was Discourses and Power which I thankfully passed too. I guess my head remembered some things after all…

Driving License:
I was supposed to be done with this in July. Now, the new ‘plan’ is to be done this year. I hope to take the theory test/exam in September and hopefully *fingers crossed* do the actual driving test in October. That’s the plan for now at least, but I have learned that plans change. So we shall see.


Ps. When I was in England I dyed my hair red. Just, you know, if you didn’t notice on the discrete photo above… 

Monday Mumbles


 01. It has been almost three months since I last sat down and wrote my Monday Mumbles. Three months. I just haven’t wanted to do write much since he passed. I did put together quite a few post from USA tho’, I also have quite a few photos from my UK road-trip. I actually look forward to put those together!

 02. In two days I have another re-exam… Man I do not feel prepared. It’s not that I haven’t studied, because I have. It just feels as if my brain can’t remember anything at the moment. It doesn’t stick right now. My head is filled with so many other thoughts. I don’t feel ready, but I will give it a shot and if it doesn’t work then there’s always a re-exam next year I suppose.

 03. In just two weeks my 5th semester begins. That means I only have two semesters left and then I will be done with my bachelor degree (as long as all goes well). I’m not excited. It’s odd, but at the moment that does not excite me. Three months ago it would have, but not right now. Maybe I will be excited come next summer.

 04. Something I am excited about is planning new years. I don’t want to be here. As in, here in Denmark. I want to go somewhere else. I don’t mind where. I just have the urge to not be here. Does that make sense? Maybe I’ll go to Berlin? or London? Perhaps Paris? or some other nice place. Being somewhere else excites me.

I wish you all a good week! x

The yearly family “picnic”: Helsingør

the harbor in helsingør 2015

Every year in August, for almost as long as I can remember, parts of my Danish family (on my danish grandfather side) meet up for a “family picnic”. It is not a picnic per se, but more a get-together if you will. Sometimes we do actually have a real picnic included during the day, but it is usually us meeting up and experiencing something cultural together.

Have a good weekend!


What are you guys up to this weekend? I have a family picnic to go to tomorrow. It is definitely with mixed feelings that I attend. I sort of feel like hiding beneath the covers all weekend and do nothing. That won’t really be good for me though. Sleeping just sort of seems like the easier choice right now, (Or at least it does since he passed away). I arrived back from UK last Friday, had a re-exam two days ago and I’ve started my part-time job again. My break-from-life is officially over.

I’ve totally been inspired by Keiko Lynn and ACupofJo for this post. I honestly think it’s genious to ‘save’ the websites/links/posts you like on your blog and also to share it with others in the hopes that they may like it too.  Now, for the links:

I hope you enjoyed some of the links! Feel free to leave a comment with some links you think I should check out 🙂
Have a good weekend! ?
