a new beginning

ok, so today was my first day of business school. I hate that newbie feeling. I didnt know anyone and apart from me, there was a really really tall guy from sudan. So, that makes only two black people in my class. I think he's really wow. he's 40, he's married with 5 kids and is just starting out with his degree. That my friends is something to look up to! In Finland the education system makes the professors more laid back which i really like. For example one professor introduced herself and continued to add that if anyone's hobby has anything to do with dogs, they should go to her because she's a doggy person!!...ok!! There are people from all over, so its nice to meet all the different people! Oh, then iv got this really huge polish professor. He's hilarious. He's always on his touch screen phone looking all busy. Did i mention he is huge!! And dude does he sweat! He was wearing a blazer ontop of his dress shirt and you could see the sweat stain seeping all the way round to the front of his chest from under his arms or wherever it was from!!! Major eeew! But he made us all really laugh to make up for it! And the chinese students have chinese names, but when they introduce themselves, they tell you that they shall give you their english names because its easier. True. But i didnt know they had English names like matilda, maggie, jessie! Hm. Quite interesting. OH and this is a big OOOOOOH! I moved into my new room! It's sooo exciting. put up my mirrors, my curtains just fit, my fitted sheets are a little too big, but a bit of kipepeo magic and you would never tell, my candles add that extra spunk. All in all, i'm feeling really good about it!!!....About everything actually...apart from the fact that school starts at 8 tomorrow morning!! 8!!! Geez!!

Good on you gal - I'm sure you will fit right in and in no time you will be asking yourself why you felt so odd on the first day: Funny thing is, everybody feels like that, everybody, including the professors - so take that outlook and you will be fine.

As for the Chinese students - believe me they all have English names which are supposed to be easier for English and/or non Chinese speaking people. Question though: how is Christopher or Alexander or Matilda easier to pronounce than Lu, Chi, Rai, or Hu - seriously..

Hope you keep us posted on all the happenings out there and yes, we all love pictures, don't we guys?
