This letter is to you.

Is it Fall or Winter in November. I mean, the climate of Sweden does not really know. It was snowing like a week ago and I mean SNOWING there was chaos. But today it is +8 degrees Celsius outside and a few rain drops is falling from the sky. I don't understand. They have predicted it to freeze over night so that there will be a big drop of temperature here in Stockholm.

Other than the fucked up weather this month has passed so quickly it scares me a little bit. In more or less a week its December. And we get even closer to Christmas and a new year 2017. Not only that after this school semester is finished I have officially gone half of my time in Gymnasiet (3 years is full time) and I have soon finished 1,5 years. I am fucking graduating soon. I am closer and closer to start Uni and even closer than that is my 18th birthday taking place the 26th of April. Why does the time pass so fast. Were have the year 2016 gone, I know there is not a whole lot we want to remember of this year but still. WTF.

I hope that you guys have had a cozy Fall/Autumn at least, as we get closer to winter here in Sweden. (Or winter and winter, the last couple of years we barley had any snow on Christmas Eve and sectioning at 8 degrees Celsius the full month of December. )


With lots of Love,

Oh My Fucking God. I can't believe that this happened...

A couple of months back at my best friend Emelies birthday party, she had invited to of her guy friends that where from the area where she lives, that the rest didn't really know. So one of them two guys and me hit it of, or really Fay pushed us together and we happened to start to Make Out. We were like that the rest of the night. And I haven't seen or met him sense.

So yesterday evening I was in this big mall with my dad, cause we were going to leave my phone on repair at the Apple store there. This mall just happens to be in the area where Emelie lives. Me and my dad were sitting down to eat dinner at TGI Fridays, when I got a text from the apple store that it was my turn to get help of a specialist. So obviously I leave my Dad at our table to run over to the Apple Store. I leave the restaurant, there was this really short walk to the Apple Store, but just as I turn left I see a guy standing right outside a licorice store (working for the store). The guys standing there is the guy from Emelies birthday party. He is looking right at me and I right at him. We both knowing who the other one is. You could have cut the awkward tension with a butter knives. Me being me I didn't believe who I was seeing so I walked passed with my sights on Apple, but then I heard him talk. I died. I literally died. SERIOUSLY THOUGH IT WAS THE MOST AWKWARD MOMENT EVER. For me at least.

Not only did I have to walk pass this licorice store ones more on my way back to Fridays, after me and my dad finished our meal, Dad decided to walk that way. Making me walk the same way again passing the licorice store once more. (He did not know how much this pained me though). Me and the guy from the party looking eyes for a second time that evening did not make the awkward tension any easier. One more thing that only made the awkwardness build higher then a skyscraper was his awkward wave and my acknowledging just as awkward smile. The fact that there was no verbal communication the Awkwardness made the atmosphere horribly tense.

I was looking out my bedroom window in the morning the other day. And saw a light cover over the ground of powdered snow. As some may say the winter is finally here. It is Christmas soon, I am so exited. And god I wish I was you. With only four weeks left of this semester and just a couple of weeks more of the year, The stress is real. Buying better Christmas present then last year and finishing up school assignments that we do not fully understand. Wishing we could be outside playing in the snow with the smaller ones, building snowman with carrots as noses and sticks as arms even raisins as eyes and buttons. The wind hitting our face surprising us year after year, making our cheeks turn a pink blushing colour. Dancing out in the cold snow with hats, gloves, scarfs and boots on. The stress still fresh everyday, like the snow falling from the sky covering our cars and houses. Cover out cloths after a morning run.

What do we really stress about? The cold snow falling from the clouds or the fact that we lose time for every second passing. Me looking forward to the next break over Christmas when I just came back from a week long Fall break. Do we stress about the people we do not feel like we give enough time. What is it we are really stressing about. The busses or the trains being late? Or is it just a feeling like love, happy, sad, hurt and afraid.

I do not know were to start, I miss you guys so much. I am going to be honest I didn't think I would miss you guys this much. At times it breaks my heart little by little not having you guys here. Just not seeing you guys every day. Or just having you here next to me, next to us (me and Fatima). 

Thinking back on everything. I miss you guys advice on guys, Ella's straight forward real good honest ones with Freja's positive input commentary. I just miss you. I don't even have enough words to describe how much I really really miss you guys. 

I see you guys having a good time over the pound in the US. I don't want you guys have any less fun then you are having, hey have even more fun. I will always have you guys in my mind and heart. I will be there when you guys come home.

I just miss you!

With so much love,

I don't even know what the fuck is happening in my mind.

You know about my last crush I wrote about? Yeah I don't think that crush is still there. So I thought I had got a new crush on another guy, lets call him Leo. He is nothing like the first guy, that we can call Jake. Leo is more like a baby face kind of dude but he really cute and tall, taller then me. Were Jake is right about my height and has this more bad boy look/image about him.

But yesterday I had this really weird dream. There is this guy in my class and year, he is really polite, nice and all that. With all that he is not ugly ( he obviously has a GF), he is really caring to. We can call him Ted. The dream was sett in someones house, in the living room, I can't really tell who's. And there was quite a few people there, but there wasn't a party with music ans such. It was just like a couple of friends hanging out. Me and Ted with the rest were sitting down on the couch, Ted and I sitting next to each other. There was a really nice atmosphere going on, people having nice conversations and laughing. Ted had his arm slung over the back of the couch (not around me over, but like hugging me like friends) you know? All of a sudden he leaned in to me to whisper something to me. At the same time as he start talking he holds my arms like crossed so I would not be able to really move. "I have noticed you getting a lot thinner. It is starting to get kind of dangerous. You know I workout ad I know that what you are doing is wrong. I have seen it before. This is not okay, you have to eat!" I could just feel my whole body freeze to the coldest ice on the earth. I looked up at him and all I saw was the look on his face was a mix in between really pissed off (angry) and woried. And there is were I woke up.

I have thought about what this could mean. What is my subconscious telling me? Why is it Ted that showed up in my dream? Do I have a crush on Ted? or is my mind telling me something else? In that case what the fuck is it trying to tell me?! And what is the tingling feeling I have in my belly or the confused on in my heart?

But what about Jake and Leo?

I don't understand. Can someone please help me! please I am on my knees begging.

This is serious, please answer me. Anyone out there that could help me please write back! It can be in both English or Swedish. But please help me and write back!

With love,

I do not know if all of you know how the fall in Sweden is. The thing is neither do any one or me either. Sometimes its really nice, warm all along. Like this September was very warm in Stockholm, more like the summer warm. You could walk around in shorts and a tanktops. So the Fall/Autumn came over night. One day it was all nice and green, but when you wake up after a night sleep there was all these different colours leefs, the temperature was down to a zero or just little above a zero and it was very cold or chilly outside. The thicker coats, hats and gloves or mittens were put on our bodies. Not only did it get cold real fast but up here north it got dark. In Sweden in the winter its get dark real early I mean the sun goes down as early as like 3pm but only goes up at almost 10am. So we get very little sun light time. Another thing with the darkness is that people get very tired quite early because our bodies think its later or earlier in the morning and evening then it really is.

Think about it. We go to school, work or etc, in the morning and its dark out. and when we are on our way home in the evening or after noon its dark. The mood of us living here gets almost grumpier for everyday that passes. But we have to remember those cosy nights in, with your best friends or family. With snacks in lots, great movies, some candles. I mean how would you be able to go through Autumn or fall up here if we did not have those. They are necessary.

It is cold, it is dark, but ohh so beautiful (most of the time). Lets not take away the fact that the colours dressing the trees and bushes are dazzling. I would like it even more if there could be warmer but still keep the colours on outside. But we all can't get what we want can we?

Under this post (I hope) I have posted some pictures of some trees and bushes I walked past this morning. It was raining by the way.

With love,

No but seriously this makes no sense. We are just chilling, watching tv. ( right now the movie 'the social network' is plying on Channel 6. Its about how Mark Zuckerberg created facebook and stuff.

So I don't know if I have told you guys but this semester I got a new maths teacher. His name is J.P and he is from Canada. So our maths classes in English for the most part, he does though know some Swedish but only some words for like plus minus and such. 

My last maths teacher was right and utter SHIT. We did not agree. Our personality's did clash a lot. Or actually more mine clashed with him. And he was not the best at explaining stuff when you didn't understand. 

J.P though is quite good I think. I mean I have only had him four lessons jet.

But today I asked him about something, I didn't understand and he actully sat down next to me and explained the thing for me over and over agien until I kind of understand. Wich he is the first of my maths teacher to do so. Witch is great. A lot of my classmates agree on that J.P is esier to understand even thuogh he speaks English.

I am really going to try this semester to get my maths-shit together. At least thats my goal.

Have a nice one! With Love,

-Jo Aspelin
