New Year's Pre-Party

I was not really planning to party tonight, as New Year's Eve with a hangover doesn't sound like too much fun. But Ky is in town, so I'm meeting the old gang for a few drinks and dancing.

Baby we were born to run

Right before Christmas I bought myself some presents. My favourite Springsteen song is Born To Run, so I just had to have this T-shirt. And I can never get enough nail polish...




Now it's time for Lord Of The Rings marathon with Eva and loads of lösgodis.

Christmas dress

I had a great Christmas Eve. I hope you did too. The stripy dress has become one of my favourites, so I wore it again this year...

I wish you all a merry Christmas!

Julkalas

We had a Christmas party a few days ago.



It was great fun. Look at my little elves...



At midnight we celebrated Vita's birthday with champagne, songs and laughs.



And then we danced for hours to old 90s tracks.

Jul och snö i Skåne

Eva and I went to Malmö yesterday to buy Christmas presents. As usual we ended up buying way to many things for ourselves, but we did find some presents as well.
It was snowing all day long. So pretty.

Holiday - finally!

I finally handed in my last exam project this Friday - after everything went more wrong than I could ever imagine. Two days before deadline the server broke down, and I could do nothing but sit and wait for it to be fixed by the company hosting my site. I have never been so stressed before. My stomach hurt for two days straight, and I hardly got any sleep.
They didn't manage to fix it in time, so I had to hand in an unfinished project. But then right after I handed in my project, I got a message saying that the deadline had been postponed, so I had two more days to work. Perfect - if only the server had been up and running again. They fixed it 10 hours before my finale deadline, so that was yet another night without sleep. But I did it. I finished the project and handed in on time, so now I can finally enjoy a bit of time off. Christmas time in Cph covered in snow. Lovely.

Swedes Please!

I can't believe I've never noticed this blog before. A blog about Swedish music... Check it out. I love it already. Swedesplease.net

Jag tänkte jag skulle höra av mig och säga att allt är fint

I don't have enough time for Aprilgatan these days, as we are working on our exam projects. They have to be handed in Wednesday next week, so things are very stressful. I can't wait for the next six days to be over, so we can finally have that Christmas party, shop for presents, and just relax.

Kärlek är ett brev skickat tusen gånger

Today I did it. I sent the e-mail to the international office asking if it would be possible for me to study in Göteborg for one semester. I have been thinking about it for so long, and I still don't know if I should do it. But for now I am gonna see what the possibilities are, and then I'll take it from there.

Could be kinda wonderful, don't you think?

Don't tell me you weren't thinking exactly the same

On a scale from 1 to 10, how much do you think a Norwegian guy would freak out if I walked up to him and went like this?



You and me,
let’s steal a car,
let’s rob a bank,
let’s travel far,
let’s wear these shirts my grandpa used to wear
And then I’ll be happy, I swear

I’ll point the gun, you’ll
keep the engine running,
I’ll be running to you.
You’ll be saying: darling our haircuts aside
we are just like Bonnie and Clyde

I’ll probably feel bad for
not taking the train but you’ll say it’s
In the country and it’s raining

We’ll kick open a cabin in the forest,
I’ll be scared like I am
You’ll put a flashlight under your chin in a scary way
and say you’re Son of Sam

And I’ll slowly pull you out of your Fred Segal
and high on the fact that we’re illegal
we’ll make sweet loving sweeter, like we do
I’ll say: BABY you’re a criminal, and you’ll say so are you

You and me,
let’s steal a car
But first,
before we go that far:
what’s your name?
Oh, don’t look so scared
Don’t tell me you weren’t thinking exactly the same


As you can see, silliness is what keeps me going these days. We have less than three weeks to finish all three exam projects... Yikes! I guess I should spend less time blogging.

Höst i Småland

Pernille och Carina hade en vän med en bil (jag!), och vi åkte långt boooooort...

I took a short break from studying this weekend and went with my two lovely friends to Pernille's house in Sweden. We definitely needed this.
We packed bottles of wine, warm sweaters and board games and stopped on the way to buy food and loads of godis (candy).























It was the perfect getaway right before we enter the time of extremely stressful exams at the university.

(500) days of Summer

Eva and I went to see 500 Days Of Summer tonight. I loved it. I loved the IKEA part, and I loved every scene for being so cute and beautiful. Not to mention the soundtrack... lovely! I really think you should go see it. I feel like writing a lot about it, but that would totally ruin it all. So just go see it - but be careful if your heart is (or has recently been) broken. The woman sitting next to me cried so hard through the whole movie, I felt like giving her a hug.


"I love The Smiths..."


"Honey, there's a Chinese family in our bathroom..."




Finaste filmen på länge.

Out of sight, out of mind

Ruskigt väder

I really like Fall, because it can be so cozy and beautiful and not as crazy as the Summertime. But these days I just feel like crawling back to bed every morning. We are working really hard at school, so I'm completely exhausted when I get home, but I have found a few ways to make it all a bit more fun and cozy. Let me give you a few tips:

Paint your nails nice and bright colours. Who says they all have to be the same colour?
And drink loads of tea and hot chocolate. It tastes even better when you drink it from your favourite rock 'n' roll mug.

Also...
Look for cute guys with seglarmössa and tygväska. And smile at them when they walk by.
Ride your bicycle through Copenhagen late at night even though it's dark and rainy. Everything looks different and really pretty.
Spend some time every day gossiping with your girlfriends.
Listen to sweet music...

Balloons, baby!

Last night was great fun. We played with colorful balloons at the university and drank Liberty Ale.



I made a hat for Cecilia.



And I got one as well. They called for some posing.



Still can't believe I go to school here.



Balloons were everywhere. So cute.



Definitely one of the silliest Mondays ever...

New Thursdays

Now that I no longer have a job, I can concentrate on school and have some more time to feel like this...




Kinda nice actually...
