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.


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...

And she'd never have to know what it's like when your pen breaks...

Today has been such a strange day. This morning I thought to myself that things seemed to be working and that I had finally gotten used to the university and the job, even though both things were so much hard work, and I was on track. And then tonight the most unexpected thing happened... I got fired. Yes, fired. As in no longer working there. As in "I'm gonna have to let you go." This has never happened to me before. It felt so strange.

I knew there was something strange about this day. Cecilia and I talked about it earlier. It wasn't just because we didn't get a lunch break. There was more to it than that.

And by accident I broke my favourite pen from Skansen.

Such a shitty day. I hope yours was better.
