Had a wonderful day today. Been eating lunch with my wonderful sister in the harbour. Sallad and Swedish strawberries :) Worked for two hours and then mom and dad came to fetch me and we ate ice cream that we bought by my sisters work. Nice summerday!
By the way, in this day and age, what kind of product is not made for my MacBook? Why are they making it so hard for us? Isn't it better that everyone can use the musicplayers without having to install stuff. Stupid!!
Ohoh, I've been very efficiant today! Before work I made a call and eventhough it was good news my head is still thinking. After that I went to work. On my way home I looked for a musicplayer for myself but all they had was a pink one. And I really don't want pink! Purple is fine ;p I bought sallad for lunch. And that was the best sallad I've ever had!! Nilssons Kötbod I say!! Been reading abit and after that I made two more phonecalls and now we are all sorted.
Holland - Slovakia is on in the background. With Love!
Uh ah ah... I have a really lazy day today and I love it.Maybe I've been eating to many sweets and drinking a bit to much Coke :p When I woke up it was almost noon. I eventually got out of bed and as it was raining and thundering (?) I took a shower instead of watching television. When the rain stopped I took a walk down town to buy some groceries. When I came back I just collapsed in front of the TV. Fotball Uruguay - South Korea. Uruguay sent South Korea home and I was happy. But I don't like Suarez, it seems to be just me. Diego Forlan on the other hand looks like a greek god, he reminds me a little of Francesco Totti, and he plays like one too. Go!
Now its USA - Ghana on TV4. I miss SVT, they are the best :) "Ola ritar" is classc!! Anyway, I hope Ghana will win... :D With Love!
The day after midsummer. Midsummer is the day with a capital D in Sweden. I think that it is the most important holiday here actually. And I spent it working. But only in the morning. After that I met Jessica on the train and Dennis and Linnéa joined us as we met Dennis brother and girlfriend and friends in Fredhällsparken. Had a very nice evening!! We had a ate alot and stayed out talking til about 12 when me and Jessica decided to start our long journey back to Nynäs. I landed at home at 1.30.
Today I slept late and it was lovely! I have no plans today, I think I might go buying some not so healthy stuff and watch fotball later? Or a movie maybe?
I think the way people act in South Africa now explain just why I love the country. Bafana Bafana (South Africa's soccerteam) won against France (who is a very good team) but was eliminated from the World Cup. That means no more games in the World Cup for them and they are the first nationalteam from a host country in ages to not qualify from the group. But instead of saying how they were bad, how players didn't perform the way they should or just blaming someone for a "fiasco" they celebrate the win against France. Nowhere have I seen or heard anyone saying a bad thing about Bafana Bafana and instead they explain how proud they are of their boys.
Imagine if this would have happened in Sweden. Kicked out of the World Cup as the hostnation but still winning against a good team. Its hard to think that the people on the streets giving comments on TV would say that they were proud. I think the newspapers would blame someone and put that on ther headlines. No party on the streets and no cheering.
This is why South Africa is and always will have a big piece of my heart. Maybe its a defensemechanism because deep down they are angry and sad but somehow i doubt that. Either way I should do my best to influence the Swedes to act more like this. To celebrate the good things and not sob over the negative and bad things.We only live once and why not be happy while you can?
On saturday we got a new prince here in Sweden. And I was there, of course! Not in the church obviously but in the huge crowd congratulating the couple after the ceremony. And I must say, I did cry quite a bit, especially when we got home in the evening and saw Daniels speech. Oh my...
I had a lovely day with Mélanie, her sister, her mother and their friend. We sat in Old Town and we even got a glimpse of the crownprincess before TV did. Woho! And she looked stunning! We spent hours at a restaurant before we walked to the castle. Later I met my mom and her friend in Old Town and eventually we started the long journey home.
I also want a wedding that stops traffic. I want to sit and wave in a carriage. I want to wear priceless diamonds and a beautiful dress. But most of all I want to marry the man I love :)
They looked so full of joy and happiness! I wish them all the luck in the world...
What has happened since last? Well, I've been working... And hanging out with Jennie :) We have alot in common. Its amazing we first met when I was 6 (or something)!! Today I got the urge to spend some money and said and done Kicks got a visit from this little girl. Three nailpolish and a couple of earrings later I was on my way home.
Suddenly, I just feel like watching Forrest Gump ;)
Today I have two things I need to do and that is to take a walk to town and fetch my bag and then tonight I'm going to work. Its nice to have a couple of days off before the real deal at work begins. Yep, today I could sleep as long as I wanted and I can just relax. Pitty the weather is not on my side, I wanted to work on my tan because at the moment I look like a ghost (at least my legs do). Hope the weather will be better the rest of the week. I think I want to go to Stockholm one day before my buspass expires. Anyone keen to join me, please?!? :)
I'm still tired from this weekend but no, I can't sit here all day... Later!
About a week ago my sister and me saw Sex and the City 2 and I actually liked the movie even though all the critics seem to think the opposite. I'm not going to tell you the whole story and ruin it for you but one thing in caught my attention. As we all now, Carrie gets her Mr Big. And I love how they say that marriage does not have to be about tradition, we all make our own rules to make it work. And for some reason I could relate to that so much. We make our on rules in our love and thats it. It gives me a sense of hope. A relationship is not between you and the rest of the world. Its about two people who make up their own rules to make it work. It just went straight to my heart...
And also, on a more superficial level, I just love how Samanthas nails are painted GOLD. Give me now!!!
Holiday!! It felt so good to hand in that final exam today at 12.41. Now all I have to do is wait for the results *biting nails*.
This summer I'm going to: read my books tan party hang with friends eat ice cream go shopping go to the movies enjoy life move work think relax sleep go to Gröna Lund have a picnic spend time with my family go on a weekend somewhere watch the world cup in South Africa write letters
and much more... :) Wish I could add a couple more things to this list but I know where my heart is...
I think I have realized something, or actually I did a while ago. I'm not very academic and I would never end up doing research after my studies. I do envy the ones that are able to sit down and just write, erase, write again and finally hand in something that is worth an A. But I'm not like that. I sit down and I write. I take stuff away, maybe I add something but never do I erase the whole thing. Maybe if I did I would reach that A that everyone wants? But I'm sorry to say that I don't know how. And it is in moments like these that I would give my left arm to be able to do that. To sit for hours just trying to find something to write. Because I guess that would make me more calm. Here I am, already finished with my exam waiting to hear my mother and father thoughts. It kills me inside that I don't feel that I have to work, I'm already done. Or atleast as done as I can be... I know that this is a small problem and I'm glad I don't have the opposite one. But eish, this is killing me sometimes! I'm still very proud of my self. Three years at uni, I haven't failed one exam and I still manage to get good marks, if not the best ones.
So maybe I should just settle with the fact that as far as I know when I'm done with my studies, my career is out there somewhere, not in academics?
You don't think you can get rid of me that easy ey? :p Im still here... I have actually no good reason for this little break but I know I have been busy. Eurovision Song Contest, Sex and the City 2, exam and work. Plus, my voice is a mess right now and yesterday I couldn't even talk. Well, I tried anyway but it was all I could do. And now, in the final moments of my exam and with a cold I miss my man so much. I want him here so bad and I just want to hug him! He makes me feel safe and that everything, no matter what, will be okej... Eish!
Den här bloggen är jag. Den kan ibland vara fylld med känslor och tankar men är lika glad och virrig som jag kan vara.
Jag älskar min familj och mina vänner, engelska böcker, olympiska spelen, fikabröd, höstlöv, att dansa, promenader, Morgonpasset i P3, ost, träna, snö, skidåkning och att sjunga i duschen.
Jag ogillar hat, kapris, när mitt nagellack flagnar, att stressa, orättvisor, att hänga tvätt, människor utan respekt och fötter på tågsäten.
Välkommen till mitt lilla hörn i en stor värld.
