2 years?!...and SFI.

Well today is a big day. Today is the 2 year anniversary for Fredrik and I. We started dating the next day after we met. It's hard to believe it's been 2 years since we met, and 1 year since I left Glasgow. A lot of changed, life is crazy, and we're still managing to not kill each other. I'm grateful. :) I feel lucky that our relationship has improved over time. Everything is so much better than comparing to when we first started dating, for us it seems like our relationship has improved much better over time, instead of peaking out early. I'm very thankful for that. I like him. I want to keep him. He folds my underwear.

I mean, I love him so much I moved half way around the world just to be with him. So he must be worth it....

2 years...crazy.



Today, we're celebrating by going to the movies. Toy Story 3 has finally come out over here, and so Fredrik has willing agreed to go see it with me. In 3D. I'm just a *little* excited. I can't decide if it is because we're seeing a movie, or if it is because I get to eat popcorn and candy. Muah-ha ha ha ha. Today is a good day for the two of us. <3

 
In other news, I had an SFI meeting...thing...today. It was not what I was expecting, much different in fact. From what my letter said from the school, was that I was to take an exam to see where my level for SFI is. Well, when I showed up it was a intro lecture to what will be 1-4 weeks of 'testing' (I use this term loosely) to see where I should start my SFI classes. The way it was explained was that there are 3 levels of SFI, and you are placed (usually) depending on your existing level of education. The top level is for a higher educated person, at minimum high school. I understood the purpose of the meeting, and how it is beneficial for them as a school and us as students, but if our previous education is so important in our placement for SFI, why didn't they ask specifically what level of education you had? They asked how long you had been in school. (almost 20 years, thanks). I found that a bit vague, but I guess it was to make the question more applicable to everyone, not just people who have degrees with names. So I know now, regardless of how much education I have, I should be in the highest level of SFI. Ok, good to know. This makes me happy.

Knowing this, for the next few weeks I shall be meeting 3 days a week for half a day to do testing, assessments, etc to see where I belong. Though I believe she said that it could be a short as one week for some people. I do think this is probably because there are just a lot of people needing to take SFI. It should be interesting to see what happens. There is a wide range of people in this group. From a Dane, Brazilians, Argentinians, Somalians, Iranians, Arabs (from a variety of countries I do not know) Asians (again, a variety I do not know), a Ukrainian (who I instantly liked just because she was blonde and named Melinda), and even an English guy. I like the diversity. It's interesting and fun. Plus, I'm really looking forward to getting a schedule and a routine. I feel like it is important for my sanity.

Here's to Monday, the start of 'school'. Weee!

And 2 years for Fredrik and I and Toy Story 3! Double Wee! 

Oh and the sun is shining today, the greatest 'WEE' of all. It's been hiding the past couple of weeks. It shouldn't do that.
