Norway meets Minnesota


Setting the stage, this first blog post will introduce me (Susanne, the Norwegian) and my academic and free time interests (yes, graduate students have free time!).


My name is Susanne (pronounced Susanna), I am a second year graduate student in social psychology, and I was born and raised near Oslo, Norway (hallaballaballo is an affectionate greeting my family is especially fond of).

Graduate student
Because my life is elegantly divided in three here at the U (our nickname for the university), this introduction is in three parts. The first (and some would say most important, but this is questionable), is my life as "the graduate student". I study social psychology, or people and their relationships with other people, with groups and with society. My research projects are diverse and span volunteerism and helping relationships, altruism born of suffering and ethnopolitical conflicts worldwide.

The second third of my life revolves around my extra-curricular activities. I love traveling, foreign foods and languages and so I am thrilled to be an International Student Ambassador. I also work with the Aurora Center on campus, and I recently joined the Medical Reserve Corps' Behavioral Health Team.

Triathlete and social butterfly
The final third of my life I devote to triathlon (swim, bike, run) and to being with friends. Having lived in Minneapolis for only a year, I find it ever exiting to explore the city. Restaurants, bars, live shows and dances, theatre... Minneapolis has it all.

Until next blog, cheers!

Seems like Ameriie is switching it up in her new single, Outside Your Body! Amerie's going back to her Korean roots in her song, fusing rhythm & blues with Korean pop music! This intergalactic song sounds great on my MP3 player and I really can't wait for the music video to be released!

This thread should keep going....

I like what it's a must to say. nice submit and I completely agree with you on all points and I'm fascinated about including a link on my blog to your blog post because its that good.

You actually make it seem so easy together with your presentation but I've found this topic to be actually something which I think I'd never understand.

Hey, how are you, brilliant article! Undoubtedly assists my research on the theme

You actually allow it to be seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be actually a thing that I believe I would never understand.
