This past week has been pretty hectic. Lots of school work (which I never seem to catch up on) and two Christmas shows with the circus groups! On monday we had a show with all of the groups where all their parents and friends could come and watch, and I would not be exaggerating if I said that at least 80 people came. It was insane, but it did a lot for the kids who truly put on the show of their lives. The crowd was very encouraging and clapped constantly. Then on tuesday and wednesday I worked at my other job. Finally, on thursday, we worked on our fire show and then drove up to Varberg to get all the stuff we needed for the kids show later on. We started at 5pm with glow-in-the-dark juggling, and then at 7pm the kids did a shorter version of their show (since not all of them were there), and at 8:10pm I did a fire show with my co-teacher out in the snow. To say the least it was insanely cold, but also totally awesome. I had some trouble lighting my fire-poi, but other than that it went really well! And people seemed really impressed. In the background we had two music teachers playing the bass and drums. Majestic.
The cold did however result in me getting sick, so this weekend I’ve been at home, mostly studying and laying on the couch. On friday I got my colored contacts in the mail, so I tried those on. Sometimes I wish I was born with blue eyes, but then sometimes I think that’s stupid because I like my dark brown ones.
Only a few days left until Christmas! Jesus, how is it already the 18th??? On friday night we’re driving up to the ferry, and then it’s off to Åland to celebrate with my dad and then later with my boyfriends family.
