​New Year, Old Me. Today isn´t just any day, today is my favourite day. Including the 2nd of January I´ve been home for 21 whole days. I decided the 20th of november to go back home to Sweden. The 9th of December I left my host family. The 11th I left LA and ended up in Germany to take my last flight to Sweden. Nobody knew I was coming home, not even my mom and dad. It made it difficult once I missed my trian becuase my flight in Germany was delayed. It took me almost 35 hours to travel from door to door. 2017 gave me a lot to be happy about and I am espesially happy that I took the desicion to come back home. I do have some catching up to do about my last 3 weeks in LA. 

Today is my favourite day because I had my first work day at Skandia Mäklarna, which is an Reltor Agency in Karlstad. It feels so good to be home again. There is absolutley no place like home. My plans have of course changed since I´m back. At this point I´m planning an interrailing trip around Europe with my sister. Which means I have around 6 months to save enough money for this trip. I have two jobs and I´m currently living at home, so there won´t be a problem saving money.

My New Years celebrations was wonderful. Delicious food with great friends and some new faces to get to know. I´m very thankful for 2017 offering, but I´m also relived to leave it behind me and see what 2018 have to bring! 

There are a lot of reason to smile 2018 :)

I’ve started to write in a journal too keep my thoughts clear and to have someone to talk to. It really helps me to write my thoughts down. I’m so great full that I got such a pretty little book form my supporting sister.



My Friday was spent working and celebrating Rike’s birthday. After her birthday dinner at Cheesecake Factory with my host family we went to Hollywood, just me and Rike. I went shopping and I found an awesome jacket that I absolutely love.
Saturday morning I woke up at 7am by myself. I was off the morning so I went with Beni to target/dollar store. I took a long nice bath and then I started to work at 3pm. I played for a little while with Elise until Alaina woke up from her nap. After Alaina’s nap we had a Saturday supper and then movie night! It was awesome. Popcorn marshmallow and just all cozed up with two cute little girls. At around 11.30 my host parents arrived at home and I took off for Hollywood. I met a new friend that I met thorough Beni. She’s from Sweden, Helsingborg. Her name is Louise and she’s so much fun. We went out on a club called 1oak on Saturday night and on Sunday I got to meet her friends Nina and Maria from the same town from sweden as Louise. We all went to six flags together and had the best time.

I was soooo tired when I came home that I fell asleep around 9pm. Today I’m working and the children’s off the whole week because it’s thanksgiving on Thursday.

Wooooww I can’t move my body. It’s crazy how my back hurts from my dance yesterday!!! When I dropped Alaina off at school today she wanted me to pick her up and when I did I bursted out in a rawr. The other parents looked at me and laughed. So I felt like I had to explain that I was in pain from my work out cramps.
I went for a run/power walk once I got back home. And now I’m just chilling with some fruit salad and a Red Bull to kick up my energy!

Today I made myself proud. I actually took my lazy but and drove to Millennium dance Complex. It was so LIT!

I took a beginners hip hop class. But it wasn’t for beginners it was only in a slower pace than the other classes that exists in the studio. I had a choreographer named Coby today. He gave me sooo much energy!

For you who don’t know Millennium Dance Complex is a famous dance studio and people travel a great distance to go here to dance. Which means that the pace is super high. The dancer are soooo incredibly, unbelievably amazing dancers and fast learners. That’s why I decided to take a beginners class. To see if my dance skills are still there and to work with my dancing brain again. It really needed to work😂

It is located in Hollywood so it’s a 30 minutes drive without traffic and almost an hour drive with traffic. It’s totally worth it😍 it feel so good to be back in the dance studio.

BEST NEWWWWSSS IN SO LONG! Oh my goddess I cant WAIT! The 5 of January my mom is coming! My mom that I haven’t seen for 133 days at that moment. Which means she’ll be here in 53 days. I’m really really looking forward to seeing her. My dear sweet mother.

My morning started of awesome with the news that my mom is coming and all. I dropped Elise off at school and then I went to Beni. At Benis’ we had a Skype meeting with my friend/cultural care worker Frida about making a little commercial/introduction video for Beni’s Q&A with his old host kid Levi. It was so nice talking to Frida again. She’s been an au pair in New York last year and as I mentioned before she works for cultural care. The rest of the day has just swished by. I picked up Alaina from school. Which is my favorite part of my day. She’s always so unbelievably happy too see me. It’s almost not even real. She fell a sleep in the car so I took her straightly to bed. I had a little time to tidy and then I was in the car again to pick Elise up. After that we did some homework and then back in the car to take her to Girl Scouts. (Don’t worry Alaina was with me all the time). Girls scouts drop off led to playing in the garden with sweet Alaina. After that Beni came with his little host kid Adam. As I said the day flew by!

Sunday FUNDAY

Today was AMAZING. Me and Beni spent our Sunday in Beverly Hills. I was feeling bad because of my stupid stomach! Soooo I really needed something to eat. We sat down at a restaurant and had a super expensive salad / burger. BUT next to us there was two gentlemen who had some wine and tapas. They were so unbelievable friendly. All my hopes on how people in America are finally came true. The tables were super close so it was almost like we were sitting at the same table. We had an awesome lunch🌴

Anyways... after the lunch we took some beautiful pictures because we never dress this fancy! The dress code was black. So we matched😂
Beni had some tickets for a show called Taraji’s White Hot Hidays. It’s a Christmas show. Soo we got all exited and inspired for Christmas. Here comes some pictures of the famous people we saw and also some awesome pictures of us.

Here are only a few of the famous people who worked on the show. Juissie Smollet, Fergie, and Taraji. If you watch The Empire this was AWESOME!

Laura’s last day! It’s been a crazy day today. It’s Lauras last day and it’s been tears and baking and presents. Just as it should be! I️ guess.

It’s going to be interesting to be au pair alone now when you’re used to being two.

I️ went crazy-shopping yesterday. I️ bought high heels, jacket, nail polish and a lipgloss. All of this for Sunday when I’m going on a show with Beni. On Sunday I’m going all black, because that’s the theme and hopefully it’s going to be awesome!
