Snowdays in Nebraska – feels like Winter-break

Hi, Haraldmeetsworld-readers and other randoms stopping by! This week I was jealous of my home-country Norway where they had the whole week off as a result of winter break. To me this sounded unfair but I have come the enjoy the weather predictions in the US due to this. Monday we had presidents day off and I had an awesome lunch-date as I described in Norwegian then. It was fabulous, good food and an awesome person I shared it with! Moreover to this post; Tuesday and Wednesday we had school. It felt terrible going there and learning while I saw people in Norway either skiing or posting statuses about how awesome it was with a winter-break. I love learning but I might have to take the side of the winter break before school I would admit. The good news of this week regarding days off school comes yesterday and today when our heavenly father has blessed up with a ton of snow here in Nebraska. I am situated in a little city called Raymond outside of Lincoln, the capital here and we have a ton of snow. Due to this school at Lincoln-Lutheran has been canceled these two days making it a long break from wednesday to monday. This was exactly what I needed to recover from studies and focus on rehabilitation from studies and have fun in the snow!

Yesterday with my first snow day I started out by watching the movie «Nacho Libre» with my host-brothers and Jack Black fighting down in Mèxico. It was a fun movie and I came to watch two more that day; Matrix I and II. I love watching movies, it is tons of fun! Yesterday I also had the opportunity to step out of common courtesy regarding gender roles as me and my host-brother Josh made cookies. Most of you maybe think; you (harald) making cookies? That makes no sense, but oh well I am a surprising person I guess! Later yesterday I found myself out in the snow wrestling with my host-brothers, playing snow-soccer (tons of fun!) and playing hide and seek at our property. It was a cool experience but fairly cold! When the night came closer, we all played board-games and watched TV together. Mostly TV shows such as «Survivior» and Storage Wars. Both shows are fun to watch and I don`t have access to them in Norway so I enjoy watching them.

Of of the best parts of my week was waking up today around 7:30 and finding out that we had no school. I jumped up and down and was literally in cloud 9. It was pretty awesome and I`m still excited as I am writing this post right now. I am gonna enjoy this time highly as I will with the rest of my time in the US! It has been a blessed journey so far with tons of good memories and I am eager to create more memories. Thanks God for blessing my journey so far and the acknowledgement I can find in you sending your only son to die for me at the cross. I live in that truth every day and I am happy to be your son here on earth. Bless my journey continuously as you`ve done so far and let´s have tons of fun together!

– Blessings to all folks out there wherever you might be in this world from myself Harald in Nebraska – exchange student in Lincoln, NE 2012/2013!
