Fredagskväll

We had a party at the university last night. It went on from 3 pm, and we were waiting for the Christmas beer to be released (even though Christmas seems far, far away). For some reason this Friday bar doesn't seem to be quite as good as the old one, but hopefully it will just keep getting better. Don't get me wrong - I had a blast yesterday! And I even found out that they serve Anchor Steam. Sailor beer, yay!



Some of the best quotes from last night translated into Swedish:

- Ge mig den jävla Classic nu! Nu säger jag!
- Det är alldeles för lite hångel i den här klassen. Camilla, jag tycker du ska hångla med Daniel.

- Om du hittar en pappersklämma, då får du min iPhone...


I have a feeling we will have loads of fun at the university over the next three years.

Folk 'n' roll ?

The past two days has been about music. Two very different kinds of music.
Last night we went to see Muse, and it was so awesome. Rock 'n' roll at its best in a huge arena with loads of people going crazy. Air guitar and jumping around.



And then tonight we went to see something completely opposite. Sofia Karlsson did a small showcase at Ideal Bar. Swedish folk music and a very small crowd - perfection. I thought I was pretty much the only Dane listening to her beautiful music, but apparently there are other enthusiasts. Whenever I hear her songs I long for the Swedish country side, and this time was no different. It was too beautiful to describe, I think.





I will add videos from both concerts to my YouTube channel soon.

Moneybrother

A lot of people tend to get depressed and sad when Fall comes, but I'm not like that. I actually think it's nice. Fall is beautiful and cozy, and one of the best things about it is that all my favourite bands start going on tour again. Once again I have tickets for some great concerts that I can't wait to go to.

Moneybrother (Pengabrorsan!) was supposed to play a gig in Cph some weeks ago, but for some reason the show got cancelled with a very short notice. So disappointing. But there was really only one thing to do then... Buy tickets for the gig in Malmö in stead! So Eva and I did that and went there last night.

Anders var lika bra och snygg som vanligt. I love his crazy friend on the trombone, he always makes me smile and dance.

Dansskor

As we all know, I can't go to Sweden without shopping. And this time was no different. Cecilia and I recently talked about dansskor (dancing shoes), and I have been wanting to get some for a while now. So when I found these babies on sale I was so happy.

Last night I went to see this band:



They were really good and it was such a cozy atmosphere.

School bags

Part of going to school is finding cute outfits to wear everyday, and a very important thing is the school bag. I bought a perfectly cute one at Topman this Summer, but I just found these great ones as well... Look!

Like Summer just broke through though it was Fall

Just got back from Gbg. We had the nicest time.



Eva and I watched the football match at a local sportsbar. We were almost the only girls and definitely the only Danes there. I have to admit that I feel really sorry that we won...
Sunday we went to Långedrag and had the best räkmacka!



Det var jäkla kallt, men så himla fint ändå.



Then we had a great piece of cake (just like last time) at Le Petit Café, and Eva and I went to Sjöbaren to make reservations. On our way back to the car we decided to take a small detour in Haga, and guess what?! We ran into Håkan! He was out for a walk with Stefan, another guy, and the kids. So sweet.



Before going back home Monday afternoon we did some shopping and had lunch at our favourite place in Saluhallen.

Needing a break

We finally have a week off. Much needed. I'm off to Gbg in a few minutes.
Last night was so great, but I'm extremely tired now. Friday bar with my class mates and Prinsessan Eva was cozy and full of fläderblom cider. We ended up crashing a great party and dancing to old 90s tracks at the school that didn't accept me. But somehow I'm feeling okay that they didn't... I like the university so much that it doesn't seem to matter.

Though I'm good with words, I've never been good with words

♥ ♥ ♥

There is a war in all the heads and there’s a
war in mine as well and if I could explain it any better, I’m sure I would.

We’re in a bus and it’s night, you opened up and so will I but though I’m good with words I’ve never been good with… words.

But all I know is: there’s something new this year.
All I know is there’s something new real near.

There is a town that I live in and it’s a town that favors winners and when I win I think about when I’ll next lose.
.
I took a train that took me north and it’s the place where trees speak louder than the people and if I have to pick that’s what I’ll choose.

I walked along the river Ume, it chilled me out of my bones too, but a cold wind is always better than a cold voice.
I am not strong enough for win city, I’ll stay in to play Sin, witty people without hearts have always had a lead on me.

And all I know is, there’s something new this year,
all I know is there’s something new real near.
All I know is, there’s something new this year.
I don’t know much, but there’s something new coming near.

I’ll walk into the shop where you work, it is a shop that kills you slowly, there will be no blood but another shirt on a hanger will still behead you. I’ll lift your arm and you’ll lift mine, and in a Communist state of mind, we’re not worth more than anyone else but surely not worth less.

Gbg i hösten

I'm going to Göteborg next weekend!



Spårvagnar, pojkar med tygväskor och seglarmössar, Sjöbaren och mycket, mycket mer... Here I come!

A party and a surprise

Carina invited me to a party some days ago, and I decided to come along. We met at her place first, had some drinks and popcorn, and did some silly headbanging.



Then we joined the party at an old club in Cph. Felt like being back at our teen disco with glow sticks and everything - hilarious!



Earlier that day I had talked to Jeanette. She was going out as well, but we hadn't realized we were going to the same party and had been invited by mutual friends. Such a great surprise!



The night ended with yet another silly ride through Copenhagen on the back of Jeanette's bike.
