This weekend, on the 13th, is Fredrik's birthday! I'm excited! It's our first birthday, between the two of us, that we get to celebrate together! Me being the child-like adult I am, have already given him his 3 presents I picked out and wrapped over 3 weeks ago! I can't help it! I love birthdays, presents, and celebrations, especially for the man of my dreams! :) We aren't doing much for his birthday though. Both of us would like to take it easy, so we are going to his parents cabin for the weekend. It's beautiful country side and really relaxing. It gives us a chance to spend some quality time with each other and I can't get enough of that!
Next week, on the 14th, I start my Swedish class! It's from 9am to 12:30pm, 5 days a week, for 4 weeks! So hopefully by the end of all that, I'll have a good grasp of the language and will feel more confident using it! Being able to order for myself will be my main goal.
On the driving front, I am actually doing really well! I feel much more confident and I'm not nervous everytime I drive. I even am willing to take new paths to certain destinations, I don't panic when there is traffic or an obsticle, I even drove to a new place yesterday, the furthest away from the house I have been on my own driving! How exciting! Haha. By the end of my time here, I bet driving a stick shift will be 2nd nature (I hope).
Funny story of the day-
Yesterday I was in Göteborg and there was an older lady walking in a nice skirt that went a little past her knees. As I was walking behind her, I noticed her whole bottom was exposed and the back of her legs! I felt SO bad, and knowing a lot of older people in Sweden don't speak English I hesitated on whether to stop her and tell her, but as a firm believer in karma, I decided it would be far worse if I let her walk away. SO I stopped her and really calmly, slowly, and politely told her the problem and kind of...pointed it out! She was SO embarrassed and of course, didn't speak English, but managed to say "thank you". It was so cute and I feel so happy that I decided to tell her, hopefully if something embarrassing is going on with me, somebody will tell me!
