#Personal – My Life Interning in the USA

My life in the USA

I’m sorry that I haven’t posted much about my life here in the USA! For those of you that missed it: I’m currently doing an internship at BRAVA Magazine in the United States in the town of Madison, WI. More than two months have already passed, and my stay here is drawing to and end. Please take a look at my temporary ‘American life’!

The lovely ladies above are my colleagues! My editor/mentor (not in the photo) is an awesome belly dancer and gave the entire team a belly dance workshop!

It’ s been quite cold here… Luckily for me it seems to be getting warmer!

cute furball chilling
I’m living with my boyfriend Chris’ parents. They are divorced so I stay with his dad during the week and with his mom on the weekends. This cute ball of fluff is Snowbell. I’ve officially branded him my Favorite American Furball!

Interior Ella's Deli
Chris’ mom took me to this very interesting theme restaurant in Madison. There were toys everywhere! It is called Ella’s Deli And in case you were wondering: yes that is Sponge Bob pulling of a Super Man pose while hanging from the ceiling!

Cotton Candy Drink Ella's Deli
Strange restaurants call for strange drinks! This cotton candy strawberry drink was surprisingly good and unlike many other drinks here in the States not too sweet!

Sushi lunch madison
Went out for sushi with a colleague! People in the States eat a lot of meat so having fish was a nice change!

squirrel
There is so much nature In Oconomowoc. I especially love the house of Chris’ mom, because they have a small forest in their backyard! American always look at me funny when I get all excited about seeing a squirrel, to them they’re rodents!

Karmin concert
I went to a Karmin concert with my boyfriend Chris’ little sister Ashley which was pretty awesome! They’re upcoming artists, but already had to pretty big hits. You might know ‘Acapella‘ or ‘Broken Hearted

My favorite Karmin song is ‘I Want it All’.

white carrot cake mm's
During Easter in the US all these candy brands come out with special flavors. Anna Saccone from the ‘SACCONEJOLYs‘ on Youtube got me hooked on these White Chocolate Carrot Cake M&M’s! I got them half prized! I bought two bags and when I wanted to get more a few days later they were all sold out!

Painted my nails American Robin Egg Blue! American robins look totally different from our European robins!

A toilet for bigger butts! Supports 645 kilo! Americans….
