    Word of the Day: Turnt

    Step 1: Purchase all the alcohol from your local convenience store.  I honestly mean ALL the alcohol. Cider, beer, alcopops, and tequila – basically anything you can your hands on. Drink responsibly 😉 Step 2: Stake out the perfect location to see the fireworks. This can be somewhat of a mission if you live in London.

I forgot how rude some customers can be especially in the area where I work which is known to be quite rough (see story about mad man with bat in previous post). It’s physically demanding as well because I’m constantly on my feet…

    Velkommen Til Norge

    So, for the past couple of days, I went on a field trip as part of my course to Norway! Myself and two other people in my group spent 4 days in Bergen, which is on the west coast of Norway. It is a pretty amazing place and the scenery was really beautiful. Also, because it had recently been snowing the mountains were snowcapped and looked really cool. Here are some things to watch out about Bergen: 1. It’s expensive! Norway is one of the most expensive countries in the world to live in. When their main source of income is through oil, then I guess I can see why…
