Two Busy Weeks; Driver's Test, France, Birthday and University!

So much has happened the past two weeks, so I haven't had time to blog until now.

On Tuesday, August 1, I took my driver's test!! It was one of the most nerve-wracking experiences of my life, and to make me even more nervous than I already was, another car almost crashed into me right before the driver's test! Everything went ok, but it was pretty scary. Well, then after that, I had my driver's test. I think I spent most of the time driving on this weird dirt road, which eventually merged into a country road, and I also drove a bit in the city. The result: I passed! The examiner gave me good feedback and I was super happy (of course)! After the test, I received a sheet of paper with my "temporary driver's license", while the actual driver's license was mailed to me a couple of days ago. My goal was to get my license before I turned 19, and I did it two days before my birthday; my birthday present to myself!


The day after, I had to wake up at 6 am to head to the airport. I didn't know where we were going until we checked in since it was supposed to be a surprise. We were going to Nice in France! It was a lovely trip! While we were there, we visited the city Cannes; where the international film festival is held every year, and Monaco; France's neighbor country. We went to Cannes on Thursday (my birthday), and explored the city, when shopping, etc. Then we went to Monaco on Saturday, where we visited the Prince's Palace and the little surrounding village, and Monte Carlo. The other days we were in France, we walked around Nice and relaxed by the pool.

When we were going home, the flight got delayed, and because of that we didn't get home until 2:30 am! Of course, I had to wake up at 7 am that morning.. Since Monday was my first day of university! This week I attended a pre-university math course, where the syllabus from R2 (my previous math class) was revised. This course was very helpful; in addition to revising math, with getting to know the campus, figuring out when I have to take the train, and to get used to having lectures contra having classes in college. There was a lot of math this week, but overall I'm very happy with this course! Yesterday, the university held a barbecue for everyone that attended the course, and I got to know some of the other new students, as well as some of the students that already go there. During this week I've also registered for all of my classes and exams and paid the semester fee. All I have left now is to buy my textbooks.


When are you going back to school?
