Yesterday Louisa had classes so I met up with Hanna and Kajsa on Manhattan. So nice!!! Among other things we went to Brooklyn bridge and enjoyed the view :)
Another day in NYC has passed by. Today me, Louisa and her Swedish roommate Emy (the sweetest!!!) went to Greenwhich Village and Soho. I love these quarters of Manhattan as well. We got manicure, went for shopping (I feel new) and ate lunch at a really nice place called ByChloe, with a lot of vegan food. I had a vegan burger and sweet potato fries.
Today me, Louisa and her friend Madde who had the friendsgiving dinner yesterday went to Manhattan to go to Guggenheim. But when we arrived there we didn't feel like see the art there so we went to the modern museum Whitney in meat packing district, and that was a really good decision!!!
At last I have a pair of vans. Dark green, the old skool model. Love them.

I have had some amazing first 24 hours here in New York with Louisa.
Yesterday at 4 pm I arrived to NYC after a hour long car trip on the same road for almost 10 hours with two teammates.
Just woke up next to Louisa in her cozy room 😍
We went to a Latino Club in Queens yesterday night. It was really fun expect clinging men... when do they change?
We started in the tennis guys' house.
I ate sushi for dinner with Louisa and some of her teammates couple of hours after I arrived:))
Snap from the sunrise yesterday morning. We started to drive at 6 am.
And then I will get Thanks Giving breaaaaak!
I love wearing stripes. Feels like me.
Today this is what I drew in class:
Ordered a black, simple jacket that I think is warmer than my other jackets I brought to Campbell. I didn't expect any cold. And probably it won't be very many minus degrees but for sure around 0 Celsius. And in New York next week I need to be warm.
This is me 10 minutes ago, drawing in my bed. Ana took the pictures <3
Hade inte lika kul igår. Kände mig stressad och orolig och det var för mycket folk och dålig musik och iskallt.
Min älskade pappa som jag delar så mycket med. Saknar dig såååå mycket!
Yesterday we partied at the tennis house, just us tennis players. It was really fun and I danced a lot. Night conditioning!
Yesterday was the mkxeddoubles challenge. Every team had three mixed doubles team. My team, the Ridiculous 6, won this challenge and are now in the lead. We were amazing. And me and My doubles partner Dustin were undefeatable. Four more challenges to go though.
Today is the mixed doubles challenge of Race to the Finish Line! We have painted t-shirts and are ready to crush!
Now when the fall tournaments are over we are soon done with the tennis for the year. Next week will be our last official practices. Our coaches have organized an internal competition "Race to the Finish Line" and divided us all (guys and girls) into three teams. We had to come up with a team name and a cheer. And then we will have 6 different rounds where the best team in each category get 150 points, the second 100 and the third 50. And next Friday we will have a winner.
The rounds consist of for example Mixed doubles, serve/return challenge, volley-challenge, baseline-target challenge, and singles girls vs guys (where guys have one serve and girls are allowed to play in the corridors). This concept is soooo fun! I really really enjoy this types of games. It makes everything so much funnier. The winning team wins 50 dollars each to spend on Under Amour and a team picture that will hang on the wall in the tennis office hall of fame.
My team consists of Ondra, Dustin, me, Alex, Lea and Lorenz. And we are "The Ridiculous 6" (more pics with other outfits will come). We won the name challenge.
The two other teams, that will have a hard (impossible) time winning against us:
The Spanish speaking team (+ one Barca-fan) CUTE!!
The leaves are starting to change color! But most trees are still green. Today we will have 25 degrees again but then it will start to get a little cooler, but still above 15 degrees. I love it.
Alex, popo, Georgina and me tonight :)
We are staying two nights at a nice hotel at Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Myrtle Beach is another crazy American amusement park/shopping center/restaurant park built around a lake.
During this tournament I share hotel room with Popo (Pauline) from Franceee!!! Very cozy :) and a fun fact: we do not only share hotel room, we share BIRTHDAY! We both are born the 11th of June hohi
After finishing classes today we drove to Coastal Carolina University in South Carolina, two and a half hours south from us. We are playing our last tournament this weekend. When we arrived in the afternoon we practiced. I can't believe it's November and around 25 degrees. To practice in this wheather and when the sky is that beautiful is pure gold :)

This beautiful wallpaper decorated the walls at Huda's (my American teammate) fathers country club. We ate dinner there this Saturday :)
