“Tha Valleees, tha land wiff myth un’ lagend..
- If I die one day, it will be from laughing.
Today we haven been working at the school’s library from 10am till 17:30pm. I think I’ve never been so fanatic about school before, especially even going to the building that is uphill in the early morning on our day off. Last week every time we questioned ourselves when we had to go to the main building: how are we going to walk today? Are we going to take the “insane” path which is first a little uphill and the rest is only stairs, or are we going to take the “easy” path that is slightly going up but takes longer to get there? ☺I guess but the end of the month we will be in good shape! Fitness and shaping for free! I think the Welsh people laugh at us when they see us passing by, struggling to get to the top and when arriving at the top we are gasping for air and heated up and not feeling any cold anymore.
In the evening I made some Japanese curry for my housemates and after that we went out to the pub with some Spanish friends from our Spanish housemate. It was really fun and we laughed a lot! Of course we also learned some Spanish/Spanglish:
- No seas flojo (Don’t be lazy)
- No seas papa fritas (Don't be french fries: Don’t be silly, from the south of Spain)
- Encantada de conocerte (Was nice meeting you)
Funny fact: our landlord thinks that Shirley and I are from Belgium and that the Spanish guy is from France. Totally makes sense.
I am trying to learn how to speak with a welsh accent. Here nightlife is exactly what Tv-shows displays: the boys are all pumped up from the gym, all have the same haircut (which we call a duck's shaved butt) and they are all drunk by 9pm. Every time the same sentence plays in my mind when I see someone like that on the streets: “Tha Valleees, the land wiff myth un’ lagend, where the dragon sleeps and life is biu.ti.ful.”
“The only time success comes before work, is in the dictionary” - Harvey Specter, Suits
As the quote states; work hard to be able to make success. It is a quote from a series that I am watching right now. It is about lawyers and I think it fits with the whole picture of Bangor University. The school is known for the studies of Law and Psychology, so I thought this is an applicable series to watch right now. But getting back to the quote, I guess that’s what Shirley and I are doing. Once again, we even spend the whole Sunday afternoon in the library working hard on our essays and studying for our exam next week! To treat ourselves we left a little earlier today to buy ourselves some ‘Potato crisps’ and enjoy the evening with it and again, lots of laughing.
Tomorrow will be our first day at school and we are both very excited to get to know everyone and how the classes will be. On Tuesday I will have my first Japanese class and we will pass by the student’s union diving club!

Wat maak je weer vele leuke dingen mee, maar ook veel studeren want je moet volgende week al een examen doen ? snel he.Het is wel international en wat goed dat je ook Japans leert, maar dat kan je toch al een beetje van je Moeder.
Ik denk dat je wel stevige kuiten krijgt van dat vele lopen,maar fietsen is ook geen optie want het is heuvelachtig,dus zet hem op !
En het weer is natuurlijk anders als op Saba ! jammer nou !
Nou Ayumi, geniet zoveel je kan en doe je best maar dat weet ik wel.
groetjes en liefs,Meta en Fred.
P.S. hier is het ook rot weer
