School's out for summer
All the lectures, seminars, essays and exams are finally done. This means I'm done with my first semester in university. Feels like I started yesterday. There has been so much to do and it feels great to finally get my summer holiday. School's out for summer!
Goodiebag The Body Shop
Here is what was in the goodiebag that I got last week on the event with The Body Shop.
On the event we got the chance to see the movie "Song for Marion", which I think was very good.
Shower gel and body butter pink grapfruit and pepparmint cooling footlotion.
I've used all of them before and I like each one of them!
Time just runs away, at least it feels like that. Finally there is not much left to do in uni which feels amazing, but absolutely crazy that I soon will be finished with my first semester there, feels like I just started... And in the middle of it all I have had work, dentist appointment, hairdresser, events and a billion other things to do. It's crazy how busy you can be. I think for this summer it's time to start relaxing and not be so busy! Just take the time to do nothing, hang out with friends, just walk around in Stockholm and enjoy the summer. I usually don't have time for that, but I think it will do me good to start take the time to do it. Otherwise the stress will just continue...
Sometimes your body just says no and that's what has happened now. The last week I have not been able to do much and the constant pain is there. No fun at all, but there is really nothing I can do about it. So instead of working, getting everything ready for summer, enjoy spring nights in town, I spend most of the time in the sofa or bed waiting for it to get better.. This is really not how I intended to spend the few spring days we have gotten this year! Hopefully it will start to get better soon, I'm keeping my fingers crossed...
Springtime in Stockholm
Stockholm is beautiful all year round, but after the winter when the spring comes and it's sunny everywhere... It is something special with that time of year! Here are some photos from one of those days when I was in town a couple of weeks ago. It was one of the first "real" spring days this year.
May is here and so is my cold. So annoying to get sick, for the second time so far this year. The weather seems to be pretty good and I have a few days off school and work, so I'd rather be doing something more fun than being home sick. Although, better be sick when you have the time to I guess.. The last weeks have been stressful with deadlines in school, but also nice because of the weather and the free weekend. I spent two nights in a row in a bar with friends and nice music. Now it's time to make this cold go away and when it does, work ahead in school. The more I do now, the more free time I will have later!
Now when the spring seems to be here for real I can't be anything but happy. Even though we've had sunny days for quite some time now and birds that sings in the morning, it has not been warm enough to actually call it spring. Today it's been 13 degrees, sunny and actually nice to be outside! The spring is absolutely amazing :)
Studying for an exam leaves not so much time for anything else..
This week has been exhausting and I still haven't done everything I have too.. Not enough sleep, that's one thing that has been the same all week.. Out of the six days that has passed this week I've taken a siesta during three of them. The influences from Spain is still in me in many ways, that's for sure!
After a day with rain, for the first time since before the one, I long for sun and most of all warmth! Time for the weather to change because we all want spring to be here for real now!
No time for sleeping
Too much to do..
The spring is here
Easter and it has been sunny all weekend! First bbq for this year, relaxing, sleeping in, watching movies and trying to do as little as possible. Spending the weekend at the summer house, with half a meter of snow around the house. So much snow during the easter weekend feels a bit weird, but after all we do live in Sweden... Now after the weekend it's time to do everything that needs to be done. Study and work!
After some hectic weeks in school I finally have some kind of "holiday". I still have to study for exams, write essays and I don't know what, but at least I can do it without having to go to school for lectures and seminars every day. I started out my "holiday" by working and shopping and I plan on relax a lot during the following couple of weeks. The snow is melting every day and then it freezes again every night, seems like the snow won't be completely gone for a while... It's getting warmer, but it's still cold to be the end of march. I hope that it soon will change completely and be spring for sure! Even though it's still cold and snowy I'm very happy that it's sunny almost every day! :)
A cold winterday in January
Back in the part of life where I really have no time for anything. I'm studying, studying, studying, and yeh, studying! I've had my first exam and right now I'm writing essays and reading more than I thought was possible. Except all this I got sick last week and have had a fever for some time. I was just lucky I didn't have any deadlines in school during those days because all I did was to sleep in front of a bunch of movies. I've seen Skyfall, Niceville, Searching for Sugarman, Savages and a few more. Apart from being sick and study I've also had the chance to go and see two movies at the cinema during the last month or so, Cloud Atlas and Kon Tiki.
The last two weeks the sun has been shining over Stockholm every day and it really feels that the spring is just around the corner even thought it's still below 0 most of the time. Waking up early and go to school or work is so much easier when it's not so dark outside. In just a few weeks it's already easter and after that spring is normally here for real!
This special drawing is up on my wall now and I couldn't be happier!
With not so much free time right now it's impossible to do everything. I'm studying, working and trying to find time to do everything else. To be in university sure is different! Every day passes really quickly and I'm not sure if that's a good or bad sign right now.
I'm sure everything will turn out great, just let it take the time it needs and then everything will work out to the best possible <3

31st of January
Wednesday, the day in the middle of the schoolweek and the day when it has so far been hardest to get out of bed. I'm so tired and just hoping to get used to being up early, go to school everyday and study when I get home really soon! I have now had my first lectures and te first seminar as well and I truly am surprised by this course. Here I thought I would learn more english and just improve the language but instead we're just talking about how you learn a language, chop sentences into pieces and if drink, drunk, drinking and drank is one or more than one word. I really had no idea what I got myself into while starting this course... Some things are so confusing while other are basics, a real mix of everything and hopefully it will all be clearer in a few more weeks...
I have now started University. The lectures and semenars havn't started yet, just some introduction so far so I can't really say much about it. Hopefully I've chosen right and if I have not, then it's not the end of the world. "Because every little thing, is gonna be alright", isn't that right? Besides spending time at my new university I've been working out a bit, just relaxed and also yesterday I went to the cinema with a friend, we saw Life of Pi and it was such a wonderful story! I love when a movie you see turns out to be so different from all the other movies you've seen before! Life of Pi was one of those movies and I'm very happy I did go to the cinema to see it :)
