Weekend and Spring Break

Ah, I can’t believe it’s spring break already!

Since everybody left yesterday, the atmosphere on campus is a little spooky right now. There are still a few international students left, but most of the Americans are gone. I’m not too sad about it, because I got to sleep in without being interrupted by anyone – for ten hours straight to be exact!

Then I grabbed a quick breakfast before I hit the track with my fellow Norwegian teammate, Karen.

I was pretty sore from an intense week of training, but the workout went great. I did 15x70m sprint with 2min rest, in 23°c weather – which is not bad at all!

Then we went to have lunch at our favorite diner. However, that was easier said than done. Because apparently half the Midwest had planned to celebrate St. Patrick’s day on that same diner. Anyway, we got to observe dozens of families dressed up in green costumes, so it was worth the wait.

Now I’m just relaxing in my room and watching Friends on Netflix. I’m typically not a big fan of sitcoms, but if I just need some light entertainment where I don’t really have to pay attention – I’d much rather watch a sitcom than a movie. Mostly because when watching movies, I tend to analyse every single camera-angle, movement, lighting, soundtrack, location etc.. which is a lot of work, and not very relaxing. BUT it’s a great way to learn the craft of filmmaking.

I also wanna give a shout out to my lovely sister who turns 18 today! Love you to the moon and back Celena <3
