Hello there! Just gonna write some thing short about today's lunch, might not be that interesting thought.. But oh well.

Sorry! No pictures today😁 today has just been such a busy day, as always.

I've had such a great weekend just chilling, but now I get back to reality and it's all just so much!

My day goes like this: wake up 6:30 am, fix my self and all that.
7:15 go to school. In school I have to play violin for 30 min before school starts (only on Tuesdays), I am in school until 3:20. But my day doesn't end there. No, now I have to go to drama, which I just love btw! And at the same time dance. So I have to like run between the two activities. It ends at 4:45, so I have 15 min to go to my locker which is half the world away, and go to the bus. It takes about 30 - 40 min for me to get back home from the bus ride. Now when I'm home it's about 5:40. I get some water and go up to my room to start my homework. I do them for about 20 min then go down to eat dinner with my family. Eating takes about half an hour, so now I have about 2 hours to do as much homework as possible. Then when it's 9 o'clock I brush my hair and get ready for bed. And then I usually watch friends or a YouTube video which is the highlight of my day. It's very sad that my whole day is basically based on homework. Very well, you got to do what you got to do, don't you?

Tomorrow is Wednesday and it's a short day for me so I get home early and have more time to
do what's needed to do. See you guys tomorrow! And maybe a bit more pictures'

Bye x

Today has been such a lovely day... Kinda. Well it's been good because it's been a great weather, I've had the whole day off, got some work done. Speaking of work, today has made me feel so stressed, I noticed all the work I had forgotten to do and didn't understand half of them. Well yes, I got some done, but not as much as I needed to.

For lunch I made myself this salad made of lettuce, cucumber, carrots, green beans, some Parmesan cheese and a yogurt-garlic sauce I made. I also made an ice cream made from only frozen bananas. I usually do it whenever O have time. You simply just put banana slices in the freezer and let them stay there over night. The next day you just put into a mixer and mix it until it becomes the perfect ice cream texture.

Hope you guys are having the best day and see you tomorrow!

Don't you just love nice mornings! Tafay I made myself yogurt with banana slices and some cinnamon, a cup of green tea and an apple. If you're like me and you have trouble eating in the morning this is real good and also healthy!

My Little baby turtles!!! I absolutely love them! They are so adorable and cute I just wanna eat them!

Just a couple of days ago I let them walk around the room for a bit free instead of locking them inside their house-cage room. They're turtles you know! They can't go far, I thought, so I went to the bathroom. When I came out. No turtles. I know they like to hide so I started looking under pillows I had on the floor, and I lucky found one! However I I kept on looking for the other one, but it was gone. Gone! I looked under my bed, under all my sofas, I was like a crazy lady running around looking for a tiny turtle that she would probably not find. After 1 hour of searching for this ridicules turtle I gave up. I put some food on the floor so it might come back.

The day after no turtle was found. We kept looking, but this tiny little turtle was just gone. I started to wonder if it flew out of the window for some reason. Or a bird flew in and took it. Until my dad joined and directly went to my bed, lifted it up, turned it, placed it somewhere else,
And found that little tiny baby turtle curled up in his shell in the corner of my room where my bed once was.

thankfully we now have both turtles and we live happily ever after! ...

I don't know where I belong anymore. Where to call "Home". Four years ago, when I lived in Sweden I was sure that was my home. The place I loved the most. One year ago I didn't really care, but I would call Kenya my home, but still call Sweden home. Now I don't know anymore. I like Sweden so much. I love the seasons, the freedom, the thought that my whole family lives there and my house and friends. But then here I've created new memories and feelings. In these 3 years I've been in Kenya so much has happened. I've experienced so much more than I would have ever experienced in Sweden. I found myself. Here in Kenya I can be who I am. Sure, people can judge me here too, but I'm not the only one being judged, I have my closest friends right next to me who will stand up for ourselves and not be pushed down.

I left Sweden when I was 11, so I was still a kid. Me and my friends would play what we called "Mamma, Pappa, barn" Which means Mom, dad, child, and we would create new stories, we would be different characters ect. We also played a lot with L.P.S, which are plastic animal toys with giggily heads. We could play for hours with those toys. But that was then, 3 years ago, we're older now. We have grown out of our childhood. And I'm afraid we have grown out of our friend ship too. That those toys were the main thing that held us together.

I still have contact with them, and we still have a lot to talk about, which is good. The problem is that I'm not really what you call a "Teenager" compared to them. In my old class in Sweden the girls wear tons of make up, they care about how they look and all that stuff. Ok, I care about how I look too, I want to wear what I think suits best for me, the clothes I'm more comfortable in. But I barely know how to put on mascara correctly without me looking like darthwader (I have no idea how to spell his name so don't judge). 

I probably shouldn't worry, right? I mean, Those thought are just... Thoughts. Maybe they will accept me for who I am and let me be who I really am. Even if they don't, Who freaking cares? I'm still gonna walk in with my kikoy pants (Kenyan pants) and stand up for myself! And it's only gonna be like 2 years, 8th and 9th grade. And there's always room for other options, so if it's horrible, it's not the end of the world. 

If you're Swedish btw you have to read "Tusen gånger starkare" Made me feel so much better about myself moving back to Sweden! Or you could watch the movie, your choice.

Ok, anyways, I might blog about that book in another blogpost, but for now, Catch you later aligator! 

xoxo <3

Heeelloo woorld! Welcome to my fresh, new blog! I am Astrid, 13 years old. I live in Kenya at the moment but I come from Sweden. I just feel like so much is happening and I'm basically blowing up like a freaking volcano. No Joke. I won't be able to write that much because of school, but whenever I have time I will try to write.

Right now It will mostly be about my last year in Kenya and about all drama.

Anyways, what have I done today? Well, I just did a 10 min ab workout and 5 min legs. After that I went down and made myself a berry smoothie, and now I'm sitting in my bed trying to figure out how the hell this blog thing works.

I think I will soon make another blog post about what I actually wanted to write about and let you guys in to my wonderful life.

That's it for this little into, but more will come (Hopefully)

Bye! <3
