So many opptions

The preperations for the last party with Fadderier (the senior buddy program) is all going on. It's gonna be a masquerade so today my mask arrived and now i just have to pick what dress to wear. 


Maybe a good skill to know

How many of you have tried to walk with chrutches in the woods, up a hill full of wet stones and mud? Not to many I hope, because it's really hard and super easy to slip. But I didn't wanna give up when I got so far that I could see the hill. Then I just wanted to make it up and see how my scouts where doing. When I fianlly was up after some help I was really hot and tired. But who knows, maybe it's a good thing to have on my resume, "Offroad chrutch-walking"
Decided today thought that I was done with them. It just makes everything so much harder. Harder to get around and harder to get things with you. Not fun at all. I've done my share part of walking with chrutches before. So I left them at home and limped to school. I can't say it didn't hurt but after taking pain killers, it wasn't that bad. 

Feels like someone is trying to tell me something

It's been a few busy weeks here, not much time over to do nothing and elsepcially not much time over for spontainious things. It sucks a little and makes me both tired and sick, but in the same time I'm having so much fun! I've gotten to know so many new people that are as weird and crazy as I am. 
But I guess it's an end to all that, at least for a while. This friday I hurt my foot really bad so now I have crutches to be able to get around everywhere..and when the senior buddy program is over I have even more time over for other things. Now it's focus on the first exam that we have on wednesday. I'm a bit noervous, but mostly because I feel like I know most of it and people around me seams to freak out over the test..they make me feel like they know something I should know that I don't...

First week as a student

My first week at the universety is over, and we're now starting the second week. I can say that I already is getting a hang of it. I've got all the books that I need for this semesters 4 different parts of the course we're taking this semester. On top of all the lecture and classes we have had fun things like games and parties to get to know some of the other students in our class (600ppl). We're devided into 7 teams where we are compeating againt each other to see who's the best. My team is RIO! The best team ofc. 

He's spoiling me

I'm right now on the train back to Stockholm, back to reality, after a wonderful weekend where Oliver really have been spoiling me. It feels like I got a break this weekend from all the "to-do's", one last weekend before the fall starts for real. But I know that I have him there in the background all the time supporting whatever I wanna do. If he knows that I really wanna do something he would never stop me, and when I need a break he's there to give it to me. 

Tomorrow school starts and with that everything else too. I don't know what to expect exactly, in one way it feels like I'm thrown back to the day before I started gymnasium, but I feel totally different. This time I'm really doing this because I want to. This time I'm going there and I wanna pass everything in school for me this time, no one else. This is for my future, this is my chance to get my dreams. But that doesn't mean that you can't have fun at the same time. Let's do this! 

Back to normal

I feel like now after the summer that my life is starting to really fall into what it was like before I moved to the US. I'm back being a scoutleader, not just once but twice a week maybe. I have two (three if I want to) different jobs and school is starting next week. On top of that I just got a gym membership again. I want to go back to feeling that strong and good with so much energy. So my fall is all planed out for me, all up until christmas. The little time I have left from time to time is going to bf. family and friends...where is this gonna end!? 


Like it was yesterday

I have now had Lisa here with me for a few days and I'm trying to enjoy every second of it. But in one was it's hard, because everything feels so normal, it feels like it was yesterday I saw her last time and not a year ago. I think that's how you know you are really good friends. Distans and time doesn't matter, you know that you always have each other there and if something would happen she would be there for me in a second. 


What summer is all about

Today have been the perfect lazy summerday. The day when you do what you feel like doing for the moment. It's been reading, beach time and now I just got home after a really nice night that started out with dinner with Sabina and ended with a beer and talk with Per, just sitting outside and cuddling with his cat. 
I love Sweden when it's showing this side. When it's warm, sunny, light and beautiful. Because the sun sets so late you get much more energy to enjoy this awesome time of the year when Stockholm really is the most beautiful city in the world. 


It's been a lot of graduations this year, I've almost been to more then the year I graduated. Maybe because I have more time now and I'm not occupying one day for my own graduation, which weirdly was the same day as many of my friends. 

I can't belive that it's two years ago since I was standing there with my graduation cap and white dress on, so happy. Or today two years ago I was laying at home in my bed thinking about how much fun the day before had been. 


Party at work

This time it wan't exactly at work, but it was at least with all my colleagues. So yeasterday in the rain we all took the bus out to Värmdö (google if you don't know what I'm talking about). Everyone had brought something to put on the table and something for yourself to drink. After that we had put out all the food on the tables and oppened up whatever you were drinking we just enjoyed the gorgeous view over the ocean, the sun, that we didn't get and rain and that the school year is over. 
We even played some games, like here where you had to walk/run to a tree and back while having your feet stuck together. Or when we put everyones shoes in one big pile, gave one person a blindfold and then they had to find their own shoes, "Like when you are trying to go home after a house party" 

"But put me in summer and I'll be a happy snowman"

Today was the last school day for my kids. So it's been song, speaches and cake. I didn't work at all today but I felt like I had to be there and say good bye to them. I don't know yet what I'm going to do in the fall and future. I have applied for schools but I wont know until July 11th if I got in or not, and I can't plan anything else until I know. I hope that whatever I'll be doing and where ever I'll be living that I'll be able to visit the kids, but the teachers too. 

Perfect weather, happy kids and nice parents made my day! Here you can see the teachers singing too, it's not ju each class singing something, even the teachers do..But I have to say the kids have been practicing a little more then the teachers. 

Just what a summer weekend should look like

This have been an awesome weekend. I realize more and more that this is what I need, a little of everything. Last weekend was out in the archipelago doing nothing but just chillaxing, while this weekend have been the total opposite, but still realaxed. We have done whatever came our way. It's been wine drinking and games with colleagues, hanging at bars with friends , having BBQ, watching movies, enjoying the nice weather and falling in love with my own city all over again. 
I love DC and I miss it so bad, it really is my city but Stockholm is pretty awesome too when it's good weather. I don't think any city in the world is as beautiful and full of happines as Stockholm on a Nice summer day. People are happy, more friendly and out all night. Because the sun sets so late at night, it's never gets as dark as in DC at night, which makes you less tired because your body thinks it's earlier then it is. 
I mean this photo was taken after 9pm...

Being off work or a day with no work

It's funny what a big differense it is to have a day off when you have work planned for days later in the week or if you don't get to work one day and have no idea about when you'll work the next time. When I don't know when I'll work the next time I just feel stressed over it, and wish I would have been able to work that day. Becuase without work I won't earn any money and without money I can't do all the fun things I wanna do. But if I know that I'll work some day later in the week I feel that I can enjoy this day off. I can actually relax and do what I want to do. 

Today have been one of thoes days. FIne, I have no idea if I'll work tomorrow, even if I hope I can but I at least get to work some hours on thursday so it's ok, doesn't matter that I have this day off. I could lay in bed late and do nothing without getting stressed about it, something that doesn't happen too often. 

Just what I needed

We took our bags and spent the whole weekend out in the archipelago of Stockholm. With almost no phone reception and not really anywhere to go. It was exactly what I needed, just do what we felt like for the moment. When we wanted to sit and drink wine and look out over the ocean we could do that, when we wanted to walk around and eat ice cream we could do that and when we wanted to use the sauna we could do that. 
I came back home, fully ready for this new week. I have so much good energy and feel all rested. Got to sleep out all mornings out there. 

Work is DONE

And the work week was over! This is a long weekend in sweden where we celebreate that jesus went up to heaven. So a short work week where I have mixed feelings that it's over. It's been really nice working with the same kids for two weeks now and I'll miss them a little, the are so funny and lovable, but at the same time I love it that the weekend is here and that I get to spend it with my boy. 


Happy mothers day!

I know that my mom is always there for me. When I need her, she'll always help me in the way she can. Like everyone else I think that I have the best mom in the world but it's because she's the one that is doing all these things for me. If I need an advice she'll give it to me and if I need something fixed that is broken, she'll do it.
I love you mom! 

When summer is knocking on the door!

It's been summer temperatures here all week and right now I'm sitting outside in the shade in my bikini to take a break from the sun, I don't wanna get a sunburn. This weather is more then welcome to stay for a long time now, even if I know that it wont. It will actually get a little colder mid week already. This week have been all work, but I really like my job, the kids are so cute and the people I work with is a lot of fun. So last night after work we were a few that went home to one of the guys at work, had dinner, drank wine and played games all night. It really was so much fun.

Now it's time to get ready to meet up with Frida and find a good spot in the sun at some bar/restaurant and then not move for a couple of hours.

A perfect weekend

It's been a really good weekend spent with my awesome friends and even my brother a little. The great weather didn't make it worse at all. I love the fact that I could stay out all night in just a summer dress and a jacket without being cold. That it's light out later makes it even better, you get so much energy and feel so much more alive. I can't say that I don't miss walking around in shorts in April and laying by the pool in May, but I don't miss that's it's getting dark so fast. 
On top of the great weather we had Steve Angello in town and of course we were there. It was us and thousands of others people there, but what can you expect when it's a free concert. It wasn't just for free, he was awesome as well, even if it was a little too much 13 year olds in to short hotpants and young boys who thought they were super cool..and then us, the old grandmas who just wanted to tell a lot of them to go home to mommy. 

Best friends or just living under the same roof?

When I'm working at the school Södra ängby I'm living with Hanna so I don't have to comute for forever in the morning. But living with your friends isn't always the easiest thing. It's easy to start fighting over things or just get really annoyed by each other. But I have to say that me and Hanna are pretty good at the whole living together part. We say what we think and are always helping each other with things at the same time as we're giving each other space. When we're living together we're not hanging out as friends. Of course we can watch a movie together and we're eating togehter, but we don't spend all the time doing things together as friends do on sleepovers or something. We haven't even slept in the same bed. It makes it a lot easier to be able to go to bed alone and whenever you want. If I'm tired but Hanna isn't I'm not gonna sit up and wait for her, but go to bed. 

In one way it's like we're putting our friendship aside and are focusing on just the roomie part. Becuase we both know that if I wouldn't like something she does, or the other way around it has nothing to do with our friendship like that. But I have to say that it does make it a whole lot easier that we know each other so well. Sometimes we don't have to talk, we just do. 

the happiest day of your life

Yesterday one of the most important people in my life got married. The girl who was there and made my au pair year not just a blast but also easier in so many ways. I knew that I could always talk to her and I knew that she would always help with what she could.My friend Tawar, or Meoldy as we called her in the US got her Ray last night and I couldn't be happier for them. They are perfect for each other. 
To see them this happy togehter makes me wanna jump up and down and not stop smiling. I am so happy for them both. 

It was a kurdish wedding even if it was not nearly as big as they usually are. It was ¨only¨ around 50 guests and not all the traditions that they usually have. But it was my first kurdish wedding and I can say that I was truly amazed. All the women was dressed in these beautiful clothes that was so colorful and glittery, and the food was amazing (I just couldn't stop eating) and their dance was a hard but fun. It was a little to bad that I couldn't understand all the speaches because they were in kurdish but it was still fascinating to listen to and by the way everyone was reacting I could kind of sense what they were talking about. 
Me and Hanna even got the honor to wear kurdish clothes and be as sparkling as everyone else, maybe exept from Tawar who was sparkling a little more then the rest. But why wouldn't she, it was her day! 

Congratulations again to the both of you! I love you and wish you only the best in the future. If I can ever do anything to help you, I'm only a phonecall away and I'll try adn do my best.
