Week 14 – LAN party and Event Management grade

Week 14 – LAN party and Event Management grade

This week I read a lot of Media & Politics in the library at the university. I also had a good old LAN party with some friends here in Norway! And oh, it’s still snowing… A lot! Doing any kind of sports outside is now done here, but the short hikes in the snow are still very nice. Last week, I visited the frozen waterfalls near the ski jump, and I will certainly do some more walking in the upcoming…

Week 13 – Lots of snow!

This week, it really begun… Snow time! Temperature does not go above -4 celcius since last week, and things are kicking off now. I totally love it! This week was an easy one, since I had no real plans. I walked a lot outside to grab fresh air and it’s even better to walk now since there is a lot of… snow! It’s also great to see how a country really adapts to the snow when it comes. Bulldozers and…

Week 10 – Media & Politics + Event Management home exam

Week 10 – Media & Politics + Event Management home exam

Last week was calm, this week was more or less busy, and the upcoming week is very exciting! Media & Politics has started as well, so let’s have a look what it’s all about. Media & Politics is far more theoretical than I had expected, but that’s okay. I like the news models and theories our very fine professor is teaching us during the classes. It’s very interesting and it gives me some new insight in how media is used,…

Week 9 – Calm before the storm

Week 9 – Calm before the storm

This week has been a very quiet one. I was feeling sick, so I stayed inside, did some very easy runs and tried to recover. Next week Media & Politics will start, and it will not be easy. Media & Politics will be very fun, but also very demanding. We have to do a lot outside the main class and it scared me a bit at first how much it was. A lot of books, articles and video’s to watch….

Week 7 – Generation Games and home

Seven weeks already have gone by… Time is moving very fast here. It’s actually moving so fast, that I almost forgot that I will fly back to The Netherlands next weekend for a short visit to family and friends. Since I will not be home for Christmas (actually the first time in my life I’m not with my family for Christmas) I wanted to get some extra time home. This week will be all about the Generation Games. This is…

Week 6 – Cycling and Event Management

After another week with just two lessons, I am looking forward to some challenges again. This week was one of sports and the fact that Event Management actually became fun. Yay! So I found out that Event Management can be fun. What do I know?!

Week 5 – Music and sports

This week I made a lot of music with friends from the International group at the university. It was an amazing experience and I can’t wait to get in to more music making! This week was also one of many different sports activities and it reminded me how much I love to completely destroy myself while cycling or running. Thanks a lot, body. So it started with us, founding out about the music room at the university. It didn’t take…
