Travel not to escape life But for life not to escape you
The world is like a book And those who do not travel read only one page
It is better to see it once Than hear about it a thousand times

Had a long weekend with double 12h shifts again.. need that cash for Miami haha. No but, took these shifts so that I could have time to write My essay, the last one for this semester. Managed to come a Long way, actually finishing a first draft. Also had time to get the visa thing for the US, and watch a baking show! Oh and SKAM. And get some other things Done as well. So now I can have a more chill week to come. Started my free time with some evening sushi at Minh's place with the bodybuilding brothers #allnatural) and My bf of course. Now we are at his place and having some sticky rice as dessert. It's this sweet rice that is sticky, with coconut milk sauce and mangos. The best thing ever invented, maybe except from nutella.

Tomorrow I'll go get My computer from service, go tan while I'm there and look at some swimsuits 😎🌴

All the biggest names, all the biggest stars, celebrities, bodybuilders and fitness models, EVERYONE is going to be there... And so are we! With over 100 000 other visitors! The world's biggest fitness event is this weekend and everybody is flying in to Birmingham atm.. Or most people have probably already arrived. Birmingham of all places, and guess who is living there?! My friend Jessie, such a coincidence, of all the places on earth. So randomly this year we decided that we should embrace this opportunity and attend the event. I'll have the chance to see my idols yaay, and buy a bunch of stuff from brands we dont have access to in Sweden. Fight nos we are at the airport in London waiting for The bus. Plans are that tomorrow we'll walk around Birmingham a bit and go shopping then Saturday it's fitness time, the whole day. Guess who's coming.. KAI GREENE and Dana Linn Bailey!! Omg.. After three years of being into gym, this is soooo cool!

Yesteday I had the weirdest University lecture ever, given in a forest meanwhile walking amongst goats. The course I'm taking now, the last one at Gothenburg University OMG(!!!!), anyway, it's about Sustainable Development (discussing conflicts and their resolution possibilities etc). So we had an excursion, mandatory from 12 until 16 yesterday. We didn't really know where we would end up, but it was supposed to be at the outskirts of Gothenburg. We went to the smallest farm I've ever seen, kind of in a forest. First we got introduced to some pigs and then also to three goats. We were hiking around in the forest for two hours while a farmer talked about the possibilities in urban small scale farming. The goats though, they were sooo cute. They kind of behaved like dogs, following us around and coming running when the farmer shouted after them. They were even licking our hands just like dogs.. OMG I need a pet goat HAHA.

This day was less eventfull though. I dedicated it for studying (after gym of course). I had two small 2 page papers to finish and a whole 4 page Synopsis to write in preparation for my final paper. As I am leaving tomorrow (traveeeeeeling yaay) my deadlines were cut short. Don't know how, but I managed to finish all three stupid things this afternoon. So now I'm going to finish reading a book called *Before I Fall* and then watch the movie based on it. Yaay! Love doing that. Seeing Movies based on books I've read. And Tomorrow I'll just pack, prepare, wash mah hair, do mah nails and then we're leaving ✈

Today after school I went to a pre-opening of Pinchos in Kungsbacka. My boyfriend's friend Kevin is the chef at their restaurant in Gothenburg city and he was invited to a pre-opening event at their new tapas place. Pinchos has this cool concept of taking food orders through an app that you download. Aside from that, they have the best tapas ever!
As I knew that we would be eating a loooot I had to do an early morning gym session before school, at 8 am. Then after school we took the train to Kungsbacka, which is a city just outside of Gothenburg.
They said that people usually need 4-6 small courses, but we started out with seven. Remember that I wrote in a previous post how I wanted try all of the pinchos menu tapas before I died? Weell, this was such a coincidence and opportunity now haha. All in all we had about 12-13 courses each, then including 2 different desserts as well. Oh, and did I mention we got all this for free? Crazy huh? Thank yoooou pinchos, and Kevin!
After having done almooost all their menu (okey no, not even close because they have a lot of options, but the best sounding ones at least) I recommend: their quasadillas, fish & chips, creme brulée and burrito! And the rest as well haha, seriously really good food guys. And we had a great time as well.. me and the three wannabee bodybuilders #allnatural

Got a free day at Liseberg today sponsored by SKF. First real summerday in Sweden this year, although it might be the last for a while again now :(
Started with a roller coaster and then we went on a ride that spinned my guts out so after that one I was pretty much done HAHA. No, but I went on two more, taking advantage of the tickets and the fact that the park was closed down and only opened for the public later on. I also realised that Liseberg is kind of boring having grown up here and having been a lot of times as a kid. But it was fun to chill out in the sun and walk around a bit. Had Ben & Jerry ice creams for lunch, that were so good that I forgot to take pics. Then on the way back home we made a stop at I Love Pizza. Now I'm resting a bit before heading out for a walk to my boyfriend where we will end the day with some sticky rice. The BEST dessert ever!

Are my arms too big, or are they not big enough?! That's the question..., I stoped training arms this year out of the practical reasons - that non stretch sweaters don't fit any longer so I had to give some away and get new ones uhhh. Also because I wanted to start doing chest a bit. Out of time management issues I had to cut down arms to 1-2 excersises/weekl just training to maintain now. But I don't know, I feel like I want to start building again. Or? Anyways, that was just to get some background for the pictures my friend Szabina took during her visit her and out visit at the gym haha.

I am at Chalmers now "studying", or mostly avoiding to study as you see. Now that we finished our group work assignement today it is time to start focusing on an individual essay that is due by the end of this course. The last big thing to do before vacation. We are supposed to write about a natural resource conflict, so I chose palm oil in Palawan, Philippines. Mostly because I really really want to go there after having visited Cebu last year. So, why not do some research on what's going on on that beautiful island.

Next week we are headed to England yaay. Should I bring my camera? That's the other dilemma of today. It's a bit big and heavy, but I hate blogging with crappy Iphone pictures... Just see below, omg.. #thatquality and this is with some added contrast :(

Except that it's a big holiday today in Sweden, Valborg, there is also the annual event with cortégen in Gothenburg. They close down the streets in the city during the evening to give way to the carneval marching of university students from Chalmers. The students build their own carriages usually based on ideas from events of the last year. The tradition has been going on for about a hundred years and over hundred thousand people go and watch as they march through the city. This year with our friend visiting from Hungary we though it would be a great idea to go and see the event with her. We arrived just as the marching started but it was crazy crowded. People probably stand there for hours to be able to get a good spot. We almost gave up as we walked through the avenue trying to find a place to squeeze in but then we spotted the perfect place, on the stage right next to the jury. So we climbed up on the podium and watched the show with a VIP view haha. When the luck strikes!

A bath duck.. look closely.. the people on the back of the truck were actually bathing HAHA

The Brexit with EU screaming and the Queen facepalming HAHAHA. I think this was my favourite!

A Camel to the left and of course Trump to the right with people fleeing to Canada xD

I decided to take my boyfriend out on a date today, as it is our cheatday. Awesome to have a relationship were we're both into gym, both on diet and we were both longing for the well deserved cheatday! I did my second session of microblading my eyebrow tatto during Thursday so I'm not really supposed to work out. But it felt to dangerous to have a bulk day and not work out at all. So I did some deadlifts and random leg exercises while boyfriend had his weekend cardio. Then we went for grocery shopping as this evening we were making Vietnamese Summerrolls for the family. It was my mom's brithday on Wednesday but we decided to celebrate more today. After shopping we had Gothenburg's best pizza in I love Pizza! Or, I had pizza and my boyfriend is weird and had chicken with fries... reaaaally?!

You have probably heard of the new show on netflix, thirteen reasons why... about a girl explaining on tapes the reasons why she commited suicide. I had some time over during work to finally watch the show. I read the book a couple of years ago but the only thing I could remember was that it was reeeally good. And so is the show! Even though a bit slow sometimes and getting me to think 'seriously, just get over yourself girl' by the end of the tapes I get her. That's probably why it got so popular, because it is easy to relate to, to recognize the main characters' dilemmas and behaviour, and well high school/the awful teenage years haha.. But that's just life, there are ups and downs and some periods are just preeeetty bad. For instance these last days of mine. Got tired of working Saturday AND Sunday as I didn't really get a weekend to recover from school and now I have yet some long school days, and then the sh*tty weather this morning, getting a stupid cold again, and oh my computer kind of broke down yesterday.. maybe I'm just being hormonal haha but I had a bad couple of days. Although, instead of focusing on the negatives we should always look at what we have. Hannah Baker should have done that as well.. she was only 17ish with a whooole life ahead of her, sad soo sad. Don't want to comment more on it though because I still have the last episode to finish. But now before doing that I was thinking of writing a list of 13 reasons why I should live, trying to focus on what's good in life even on this sucky day.

Here goes, without any deeper meaning to the order, thirteen reasons to why I should live:

1. First of all, to have the chance to find out what happens in the last episode of the show, while having some ice cream!
2. Because I deeply believe that the summer is on its way now to Sweden, soon.
3. To have a whole pizza to myself on my next cheat day on Saturday.
4. And also to celebrate my mom's birthday on Saturday, with a friend coming to visit from Hungary. Yaay, can't wait for this next weekend!
5. To have the chance to try Ben & Jerry's Caramel Chew Chew that I somehow have missed out on.
6. To go to the tapas restaurant Pinchos and order everything good on the menue... I'm starting to realise food is a pretty good reason to live HAHA.
7. To go on the Miami Cruise this summer. Best reason!
8. For my boyfriend, for every moment with him.
9. To see if I would have proportionate abs, if I finally get that stupid six pac... working on it!
10. To get my facial treatment with gold, that I got as a random gift from boyfriend.
11. To watch the new Avatar someday.. been waiting for like 10 years now right?!
12. To see how the huge fitness festival in Birmingham is. Finally traveling soon again.
13. And finally, to get all the clothes from China that I ordered on Wish haha.

Well, if not the best and the most important ones, here are at least some reasons why I feel like it's worth living.. even though I had a pretty boring, bad and wet day. Believe it or not, thinking about the positives in life and writing this list now really got me in a good mood :)
Conclusion: when you have a bad day, or even a bad week, stop and think about what's good in life, because there's plenty!
