Day 13 – This week

This week I have had winter sports holiday. The thing is I have had an annoying cold for three weeks now, therefore I haven't been exercising much of winter sports... This is what I have done instead:

Monday: I had choir where we discussed our upcoming show and then I went to Barista for a while to give Hannah her a present, since she turned 18. Then I welcomed my boyfriend back, who had been in Bangladesh for way too long.

Tuesday: My friend Jossan turned 18, therefore I went to have lunch at East City with her and her friends to celebrate. After that I had choir once again, where we basically managed to plan the entire show, in which order the songs are being put and which sketches we are going to have. Then I hang out with Hannah.

Wednesday: I had a mother-daughter day. We walked to the city where we watched the ice sculptures in the municipal park, had lunch at Unico, went shopping and watched the film "Of Gods and Men" at the cinema.

Thursday: I did those boring things I had to do, like cleaning and searching for jobs, in the forenoon. In the afternoon, Anton came.

Friday: I went downtown to have a cup of coffee with Anna and then I went home to Gabbi. That poor girl had been home sick the whole week. I won in Scrabble, she won in Yatzy and "kasta gris".  In the evening I watched "The King's Speech" at the cinema with Malin.

Saturday: In the evening came Malin, Ellika, Gabbi and Lisa to watch "Melodifestivalen" and hang out. Mostly hang out. They forced me to flatten my hair. It feels like half of all the people I have ever met have asked me how I would look if I flattened my hair; therefore I'm uploading a picture.

Sunday: Lisa stayed the night, and we planned to study chemistry. That plan hasn't worked out... Here we are, listening to Shout out louds and talking about everything else but chemistry.

Day 12 – What’s in your bag

If you would turn my bag inside out, you would find these things:

A calendar
A cell phone
An iPod
Lip balm
Nasal spray
A spectacle case
Headache tablets
A wallet
A pencil
A timetable for buses
An ink pen
A combination lock
A stamp from Spain
Something similar to pepper spray, from the time when Spanish men would shout "rubia" (=blonde) in the streets (Fortunately, I never had to use it)

Day 11 - Your siblings

I have two elder brothers.

This is Rickard, eight years older than me. As a very small child, I thought I would marry him when I grew up. Whe have never had so much of quarrels; I think that he must have been very patient with his little sister when she was always asking him about his girlfriends.

This is Niklas, six years older than me. We have had very many quarrels throughout the years. I have given him a scar on his arm by scrathching him in a fight, but I partly blame that on he always scratching his eschars. I always ended up with listening to the same music as him, though I told him that I hated it on principle.    

My brothers have in a way always been like role models to me. I would never have admitted it when I was little, but that is the way it is. They have moved out a couple of times each, and every time it broke my heart a little. 

I have thought that I hated them both. One thing I know for sure is that I love the both of them very much.

Day 10 – What you wore today

This is probably among the silliest blog posts of this challenge, but anyway, this is what I wore today:

A pair of black jeans from Crocker, JC
A tank top from Weekday
A cardigan from Lindex

Day 09 – Your beliefs

When I was a child I believed in God, for all I can remember. Every night I used to pray that prayer that children pray - "Gud som haver..." and sporadically I prayed for other things to come true. I went to church with my parents on Christmas Eve, but that was about it.

When it came to the point where I had to decide whether I should confirm my Christian faith or not, I no longer believed. Somehow my faith in God had slipped away, but I cannot remember when. It happened very naturally I think. I started my confirmation even so, but after a while I decided to not go through with it, and I had some quarrels about this with my parents.

Anyway, I signed up for a week at summer camp to do an "humanistic confirmation". I am very glad that I did, it was very interesting and I met all these wonderful people with whom I had many discussions about life and all there is to it. It is definitely something I would recommend if you want to talk about everything concerning life, but not through a Christian perspective.    

I would not say I believe in any kind of religion, but of course I have other beliefs. I believe in the evolution theory, but I am definitely not excluding the possibilty of something more to life than what science can tell us about.

A little part of my confirmation group.

Day 08 – A moment

Out dancing in Madrid, the four of us knock our heads together and scream out of happiness. I think that our thoughts are pretty much the same. We are lucky to have met but there's also some sadness in it, since we know that it is our last night together like this for a very long while.

I cannot say how glad I am that I met and had a chance to get to know you, Malou, Sofia and Josefine. Our journey to Barcelona was lovely and we had so much fun. I think about you every time I hear "Dj's got us falling in love". I love the way that we can be completely open about even those things that you normally hush about. We are very different in many ways, but still such a good match.

Day 07 – Your best friend

This is probably my best friend. Her name is Gabriella Backman, and we've known each other since I moved to Uppsala, for about seven and a half year that is. I don't think that I've ever met someone in the same time so eager listening to you and telling you about herself. She is very empathic, and she is a great friend. I know that I can always count on her, and she knows that she can always count on me. We don't fight because we understand each other way too well. I think she is the one who knows me best out of all people and I count her as family.  

Hannah Ax is one of my best and most colourful friends, and she has the ability of making me very happy when I'm down. She is always ready to listen and give good advice. I got to know her well in 8th grade I would say, and since then she has been one of the most important persons in my life. Sometimes I don't know what I would do without her. I can picture her and I when we are happy and retired old ladies, sitting in a sofa, each of us with a cup of tea and a knitting. I would very much like for that picture to come true some day.   

This is another one of my best friends. Her name is Malin Lindström, and we got to know each other somewhere in junior high school, but we got real close about a year ago. While getting to know each other she sometimes got me upset by her honesty, but now it's one of the things I like the most about her. She has these wonderfully interesting thoughts about life, and I love to hear them. I also love that she's a good and interested listener.

Lisa Bondeson, I would say, is also one of my best friends. We got to know each other about one and a half year ago, when we started in the same class. The first time we met we wore working clothes and were at a home for the elderly, a summer job that both of us had.  I did not know by then that we would become such good friends. We have had our ups and downs, and we often talk about our interesting relationship. In a way, we are like siblings. We can be very honest and even sometimes mean to each other, but we know that we can count on each other as well and we most often have a great time together.    

I feel that I could write about many more persons being very important parts of my life, but nor do I have the time or fortitude, nor do I think you would have the fortitude to read it. I love you all, and I could not get by without you. None mentioned, none forgotten. I think that you know for yourself if you are a friend of mine.
