Why? Because the past few weeks I've been MOVING! On October 11th, four out of my five roommates finished up their contracts and had to move back home. It was a sad, sad day. We woke up and all sat in the living room writing in eachother's goodbye books, crying. I ended up going to the airport with my Norwegian roommate, Marthe whom I shared a room with. It was sooooooo weird saying goodbye to her. She was one of my good friends down here, and someone who I lived and shared a lot with. It was so hard to see her leave. I really did not know what to do with myself.
When I went home after the airport the room and apartment was pretty much empty. Such a weird feeling. However, at the same time I was almost excited to see what my new apartment had to offer me and who my new roommates would be. I finished packing that night and went to bed.

FINALLY Michelle and I are just about settled in. So far we LOVE it. The place is so nice! It's a loft styled apartment. So you walk up the stairs and then you enter into the living room and kitchen. We also have a balcony that I'm sitting on right now as I post this blog. The layout of our room is pretty neat, however, our closest and washroom is much, much smaller then our old place. Did I mention we live in an EIGHT bedroom apartment. hahah. That was what I was scared of. Buuuut, I was wrong. I absolutelyy love it and I love my roommates already! Although our apartment has a ton of girls, we have a cleaning schedule and everything. The house is all decorated and it is so much more 'homey' than my old apartment. I really like it. I now live with three German girls (Michelle, Julia, Svea), one Norweigian (Malin), one Italian (Olimpia), one South African (Annecke), and one Chinese (Mary). They are probably some of the sweetest and friendliest girls here. They were so welcoming and accomodating. It was much different then my first move down here.
On my first morning, I woke up to the sound of few of the girls sitting in the living room together laughing. I smiled and knew this move was the next great thing I had coming for me down here. :)
