***delayed posting*** I guess I should spend a few words on Norway considering I leave tomorrow. I feel like I am a broken record on repeat, but I can't quite wrap my head around the fact that tomorrow I am leaving. Done, not back in two weeks after a little holiday.

Most of the time I truly appreciate the much more relaxed mentality 'round these parts. People value their holidays, and not everyone is bending over backwards to … Continue reading Blessing and a Curse: The Work System In Norway
Today was the Day of Dance in Norway. I think it also may have been through all of Scandinavia, but don't quote me on that. Anyways, it turned out to be a lovely sunny day which was fantastic as the performance is held outdoors. There were several numbers by different dance schools/programs in the area. … Continue reading Dansens Dag 2013
