やっと週末!(?)

Now it´s finally weekend here!
.. At least for some of us, I have my ceramic class (陶芸) on Saturdays so I guess the coming weekends will be pretty short for me.
Anyway, my week has been good though. A lot of school (when attending university in Norway its usually not that many classes pr. week) but a lot of fun too.
Yesterday I met my friend Mayu and we went to see The Golden Pavilion (金閣寺)
which actually is just up the street from my university! And it is also on
e of the most well-known tourist attractions in Japan by the way. The atmosphere there was really good, with the trees and lake surrounding the pavilion. Of course it isn´t actually tourist season either so I guess it usually isn´t as peaceful as yesterday though..
Me and Mayu in front of the Golden Pavillion (Kinkakuji)
Today I´ve just been to school and so on, but later tonight some of us here at I-House are planning to go out on karaoke or something.
The word "karaoke" is actually quite interesting. Kara means empty and oke comes from orchestra. So in other words; Empty orchestra! :)

Anyway, in the end I have some pictures of my room as well for those who want to see.! (It is not that much to see yet though..)
Bye bye (^_^)v

The Golden Pavillion again.!
Edit: I don't quite understand how this post remains one of the most frequently read posts on this blog. Anyway, for more and (hopefully) better posts about Ritsumeikan, please check out this link.

  1. Gratulerer med A level resultatet. Det høres ut som om du finner deg vel til rette. På Bryggen har vi hatt vår siste cruisebåt så nå går vi i vinterdvale.

  3. Elisabeth: Takk for det:D! Trives veldig godt så langt iallefall:) Får håpe de norske kundene blir ekstra flittige til å strikke/brodere fremover da, så det ikke blir altfor stille.. Og at jobben går greit sånn ellers også, det blir vel ekstra stille når dere er så få ansatte.

    Renate: Takk takk! :)
    Hehe, ja jeg er jo ganske heldig med det da..! Har et kurs i kaligrafi også, på mandag satt vi i én time og skrev 日本 om igjen og om igjen. Men det er jo likevel vanskelig å få god teknikk på det da.. :P

  4. Bruker du ein treningsball som stol? Det var jo både kreativt, praktisk og plassbesparende =)

    Ganske små bilder du bruker i bloggpostene dine, men det er kanskje med vilje for at ingen skal stjele og misbruke bildene dine?

    Ka kamera har du kjøpt forresten? =)

  5. Ja, tok med meg treningsballen min fra Norge xD haha.. Den er veldig praktisk, jeg kan til og med trene ballanse mens jeg ser på programmer etc:P

    Ok, jeg har egentlig ikke tenkt så mye over det med bildestørrelsene, men jeg kan gjerne poste litt større bilder fremover også;)..!!

    Kameraet jeg har kjøpt meg heter så mye som RICOH CX3..! Har aldri hørt om merket før men:P Det funker fint iallefall (^_^)v
