Pirates, Chess, The Oscars....

Yes I'm alive! But only bearly.. This first 2 weeks at university have been so intense! Together with normal classes during the day and intro-activites during the evenings (and nights..) we had to read 450 pages in 1½ week and yesterday we had our first exam! To manage to do normal human-stuff lite eating, walking the dog, showering and sleeping, you had to be faster than the light and have at least eight arms.. ;) But I survived and have already a lot of good memories from my time in uni!

As I told you last time, the first evening we had a pub-crawl. The theme for the night was Musical Monday, so my group decided to go with Chess. We all showed up in black and white, but some were bishops (in Sweden they are "runners"), other king and queen, we had a horse (yeah, that's what we call the knights), two towers (rooks) and the rest of us where "farmers" (pawns). Before the pub-crawl, your group were supposed to write a song and sing it for Novicheriet (the ones who had arranged the whole week). We came in 2nd place!!

Everyone standing like in a game of chess. Black and white pawns.

The next evening, it was Bollywood Tuesday. We all tried to find some clothes that looked Indian. That day was the Helsingborg-race. Each group got a paper with riddles that where places in Helsingborg. When finding out which place they ment, you were supposed to go to that place and take a photo infront of it. When all 20 places where found and photgraphed, you should return to the starting point. The group that had the most right answers and the best time, got points in the total competition of the week. Our group came in 2nd place! (out of 17 groups).

The day after that we had Fantasy/Sci Fi-Wednesday. We decided to go for Pirates of the Caribbean and everyone made a little ship of a moving-box. That evening we did something that is called "touring" (tura), that is going with the ferry between Helsingborg (Sweden) and Helsingør (Denmark) back and forth. We went 5 times I think, before we got of in Helsingør and went to a club called Retro.


Me and Jennie in our boats :D

The group

Then there was an other party that I didn't go to because i started to feel a cold coming.. So next thing was during the Saturday. It was Horror-Saturday, so our group were Hitchcocks The birds. During the day we had the other half of the competition (in Swedish called poängjakt, like "point hunting"?) and the group were supposed to do a lot of things in 3 hours. Here are just some:
Go to Denmark, do a Titanic-scene on a boat, write a poem, do a synchronized swimming in a pond, feed an animal, collect patches from guys underpants, do a dance, do 20 pushups, have a wet-t-shirt-compitition, do the longest line of your clothes, scare someone, sing a song on a bus during one stop (a Swedish song about the busdriver), do a prank with a Danish guy, get a stranger to sing a song, do a dance for 1 min (Små Grodorna) in the busterminal... and a lot more.
It was a lot of fun! Unfortunaly, I didn't bring my camera that day, and I can't find any picture of us as birds..

In the Sunday afternoon we had childrens movie Sunday. So we went disco bowling. I was Pippi Longstocking!

It all ended with the Oscars (as you might have noticed, they had a movie theme all week ;)) with dinner, prices, songs and dance.

Mingle before the dinner. Here with Hilda and Anton from my group

Our "mentors" (faddrar) won the category Best Mentors

Linnea, Jennie, Filip, Johanna, Ida and I

Unfortunaly our group (group 9) didn't win any price, but I got to know later that we came in second place in almost all the categories; Best Group, Winner of Competition, Best Zero (that's what we are called, before the introweek, now we are "ones" because we are on our first year).

Have a great weekend!

I LOVE the boats - so funny! Also the chess piece pub crawl team theme is really clever. Over here we just have team t-shirts that are all the same color.
