Since the season opening in Beitostølen two weeks ago, things have been back to normal here in Lillehammer, or at least for me. I’ve had a chance to catch up on some schoolwork, reconnect a bit with the other international students, and continue with some good training. For some of my friends and neighbors, however, I got to give them some “new tastes” at the first Thanksgiving meal that I have ever prepared, in its entirety, on my own.
Firstly, I would like to take the chance to catch up a bit on a couple of responses to my blog, which aks about my coursework at Lillehammer College and how well my language skills are coming along. Both of which are great topics that I’ve been forgetting to mention—probably due to being frenzied by the start of the ski season. Anyway, the first question mentions if I’m taking a “reduced” workload at school this year. The answer to this question is both a yes and a no. Technically, my school workload this year isn’t “reduced” because I’m taking a full workload of classes, but, yes, I am finding that I have more time than I did at Williams to budget towards ski training and other activities.
