Lotiel is back!

Post by Lotiel on Sat Mar 05, 2011 10:19 am

It's been, what? years? I can't believe that.

Anyway, I'm in Oslo now, working for a non-profit youth organization, as a year off from my studies. In August I have to go back to school to finish my bachelor's degree. Then I plan on moving to the west coast, although I'm not too sure what I'll do there.

But, news! I have a little puppy. Her name is Guri (goo-ry) and she's mostly Chinese Crested Powder Puff. She's allergy friendly, and that's good, because my flatmate has become allergic to his family's dogs. She's eight months old, really really friendly and full of high spirits.

I don't have any really current pictures of her, because my camera is broken, but these are just a few months old:

Hi, Lotiel! Good to hear from you again!

Guri is cute. She looks a bit like my dog.

After high school I was a year in Trondheim, which is further to the north, where I studied language and computer science. That didn't work for me, so I moved to Oslo to study Arabic and live with Ola, who's a good friend. I did Arabic for a year, and then I went on an exchange semester to Syria. That was lovely, but I was good to be home afterwards. Then I did my last semester of Arabic in Oslo, and started on my French minor.

And last summer I started this job. It's being secretary general of the organization, but we're only 1,5 employees, so it's not all THAT impressive. So this summer I have to start French again. Not much looking forward to it, to be honest, but it'll be fine.

I got Guri from a relative. Some other relatives had gotten a dog from them before, and they gave me the tip he had a new litter. So I talked to him, and went to see them, and fell instantly in love with Guri. Then we had to check if Ola was allergic to her, and he wasn't, so it was all shiny.

She's so playful and cute, and she loves the deep snow. She jumps up and down in it.

Lori has been sending me links to the forums, I just never registered for them before. I guess I thought it'd be weird, after all this time, but you guys are so lovely.

Tone! it's so good to hear from you. I love your Guri. He's so cute.
It sounds like you have had an adventurous few years. I'm certainly glad you are not in Syria now, with all the turmoil in the mid east.

How is your wonderful family? Say hello to them for me.

Guri loves loves loves the snow. You should see her! She has to wear little rubber shoes so the snow doesn't hurt her poor little paws, and she really dislikes them, but then she forgets about them when she gets out in the snow. She IS adorable.

I felt really, really safe in the Middle East. I know there were riots in Jerusalem just after I was there, but I never saw anything at all worrying. And I hear from people that are there still that it's pretty safe still, you just have to keep your head about you.

My family are doing good. My sister is going to a one-year music school thingy on the West Coast, so the house is probably very empty right now. Both my mom and my dad are working a lot, and my mom may get a promotion at one point, I think. She's been a little ill, but she's back at work and everything's fine now.

My dad loves Guri. He's very good with kids and animals, and he really loves them. So he's perfect with a happy dog like Guri. My mom was a little insecure in the beginning, but now Guri demands attention and cuddles from her too, and she's warming up to her.

I'm sorry, too. I know that was a sad loss for you. But I also know he had a happy life with you, and when his circle turned he went to the bridge with great love on both sides. I'm glad you are paying your love forward with Guri!

Sorry to hear that Lotiel, but I know 9 or 10 is pretty old for a bunny, Lille-Hoppe had a good long happy life with your family.

He did live a long and happy life.

Lille-Hopp wasn't actually mine, he was my sister's, so the loss wasn't too big for me, but it was for her. I think it may have been when I was in Syria, even, and I only heard when I got home.

I know, but I bet it was still a bit sad to go home and not have him be there to greet you.

My condolences to your sister, Tone. It's been a long time, but I do seem to remember that you told us Lille-Hopp was hers.
