My mom bought tulips to have in Sweden for my birthday. So nice. And that black painting on the wall, I made that. It's not my best one and I'm not even proud of it so I don't know why it's there... 
 
I got more cards! And a book with quotes about happiness. The first card is from my mom, the second one is from my whole family and the third one is from my grand parents (mom's parents).

These cookies are so good! They're pumpkin cookies with chocolate chips in them. Yummy! 
 
It's my 18th birthday today! I didn't really "feel like" I was 18 until I had to sign a bank document (online) to be able to see my bank accounts... That's kind of weird isn't it? People always asks you how it feels to turn a year older but you don't really feel any different than the day before. Atleast I don't. 

I didn't really tell that many people in school that it was my birthday today so I was kind of surprised when people I saw in the hall said happy birthday to me. Everyone who wished me a happy birthday really made my day today, thank you! Another good thing about this day is that we had EO and an early out so each class was only 45 minutes. I'm cool with that.
I just talked to my parents on Skype and opened their present. We were supposed to Skype at 1 but we had to take the canyon instead of the divide so I got home at 1:20. It was ok though, they were still awake. I Skyped with mom and my siblings first and then my dad. It's always really nice to talk to my family. It's really confusing though with the languages because obvioulsy we speak Swedish but as soon as someone uses an English expresssion I start speaking in English. Ehm, yeah... 

Now we're going to watch Sherlock I think. 



We are three girls in yearbook that has our 18th birthday in January so today Alyssa and Billy went to buy some pizzas, cookies and 2 pieces of chocolate cake. Me and Kaycee got one each. It was so good and very rich so I only ate small part of the corner. I took the rest of it home so I can have some after dinner too. 

 
 
Today has been a really good day. I feel like I say that about everyday? But it's a good thing so I'm going to continue with it. School was really fun and we got to learn some cool stuff in Photoshop during photo 1. I'm really enjoying my photography class and I have a feeling I'm going to learn a lot. US history wasn't very exciting but I finished the assignment we got so I don't have any homework to do during the week end. In jewlery we just continued designing our 50 pieces, we're supposed to have 21 today but I'm only on 18... So that's what I'm doing this week end I guess. Choir was fun as usual. We have so many new cool songs that I'm really excited about. One of the songs is Jabberwocky from Alice In Wonderland, it doesn't really have any real words in it but the melody and the harmonies are really fun.
 
After school I went home to Maddies house. We made banana cookies with chocolate chips and then we took a very long walk around her neighborhood. I think we were out for almost an hour. It was just uphill in the beginning and it was a lot harder than I wanted it to be... Did I really do aerobics?? We had so much fun about that... When we got back to her house it was 5:30 already so we made some dinner for ourselfs. I made a panini, yummy. Then we actually played monopoly. I haven't played that game in ages so it was really fun to do it again. I'm used to having all the Swedish street names so you know which streets are the cheapest and which ones are the most expensive but I got the hang of it pretty quickly and if we would have finnished the game I would have won.

Tomorrow is Friday and since 3 out of 9 people in yearbook are turning 18 these two weeks were having a little party in class. I think we're just having pizza because we really have to work on our pages...
