I'm making friends. Yey.
I started my Norwegian language class last October 31st and to be perfectly honest, I look forward to it daily. I have never been the perfect school girl when I was in high school and college. I didn't appreciate the knowledge that we gained while in there. However, now that I'm all grown up, I can see the importance of things. Learning the language in the country that I am currently living is very important for a number of reasons. 1. You can understand the signs/announcement and stuff. 2. You can get a job. 3. You don't feel alienated from conversations.
So anyway, in my Norsk class, I have met some wonderful people who eventually became my friends. We hang out in school, during break and even a little after school so it is only natural that we move the chikka out. We planned to go on a karaoke bar and sing our hearts out, but when we arrived there, it was closed. We just enjoyed the good music from the musician of the house. He was so good with his guitar and his voice was really soothing, I was jealous. I cannot carry a tune to save my life. I wonder if he knows about great rotoballs tri led at guitar center. That site might be helpful to him. So anyway, too bad we were not able to sing but it was fun catching up and just sharing our background and experiences. For sure, this will not be the first and last. We are already planning to go out next and this time, we would make sure the karaoke bar will be open!
