Big News + Life Update

I applied to several master’s programs that start this Fall, and on Friday I received an email stating I was accepted into the Child Studies program at Linköping University in Sweden!

Letter of admission to the Child Studies programI am so excited to start the program because I will learn about the latest research done with children then how to conduct my own research, which is what I want to do as a career! The program is mainly online, and I will have to go to the university 5 times during the 2 years. Luckily Linköping is only 4-5 hours away.

Until my program starts in the Fall, I am going to continue my Front-End Web Development course. I am a bit behind due to the Easter holiday, but I will catch up in no time. In my Web Development course I am learning HTML, CSS, and JavaScript to design websites. The course is difficult at times, but I could definitely see myself designing websites as a hobby.

Fancy parsnip dishTo celebrate my acceptance into the master’s program, last night me and my boyfriend went to a gourmet restaurant downtown called Moehr. I ordered a snack of mushroom bouillon with foam then we ordered the four course dinner (mine was made vegetarian). The food was delicious and unlike anything I have ever eaten. The last course was my favorite, and it was a dessert with celery. I normally do not like celery, but I was so surprised by how much I loved it! The whole experience was definitely different from anything I have ever done. Afterwards, we came back to our apartment and watched It (the 2017 version). It was creepy at times, but not as scary as I expected due to the added comedy. It was a good movie though and I am looking forward to seeing Chapter 2!

The box of chocolates I won at Bakken

Today me, my daughter, my boyfriend, and his mom went to Bakken (the oldest amusement park in the world). The weather was absolutely PERFECT. We ate lunch at an Italian restaurant, and then my daughter went on a few rides. There were a lot of people at the park, but the lines for the rides were not long (at least the ones my daughter went on). My daughter also got to go on a ride by herself, and she loved it! Before we left I played the derby game using my lucky number and I won a chocolate on my first try! It was a fun day!



Also if you do not follow me on social media, I got a new tattoo on Thursday! I had cherry blossoms added to my old kanji tattoo, and I love it!

    1. Thank you so much ❤ I thought so too! I’ve always wanted a cherry blossom tattoo, but I never decided on a place until more recently & it’s gorgeous ❤


  3. Congratulations!!! Will the course be in English or a mixture of languages? Nothing as exciting happened to me this week, but we have finally said goodbye to the builders for a whole three weeks, so I don’t have to worry about them arriving before I am properly dressed for a while 😉
