  • If you fail school in sweden you can always re-take the class on komvux, you can also take courses you didn't take in high school so you have the competence to apply to an university.
  • Because we pay a lot of taxes and give people welfare, everybody has a chance of living a good life. It's not that big of a gap in society like in America for example. In sweden it's not rich or poor like in America, we have the working class here. People have it good, but we complain too much! The majority of us have a roof over our heads (not just a roof, a beautiful place to live), animals, family, friends, food on our plates and our health. We are surrounded by the most beautiful nature in the world, our country is not war-torn. Even if we have all that, we complain about the weather and other unnecessary bullshit. The picture below is a comparison of syria and stockholm, we have it good.
  • Our animals have it way better if you compare it to like greece or something. We dont have cats and dogs roaming around living on the streets. We take better care of our animals, simple as that.
  • The parental leave is at 16 months per child, that's pretty good if you ask me.
  • We don't have alcohol in the supermarkets making it easy for minors to get their hands on it.
  • We were the first country to give our elders pension.
  • We're the best country in the world at speaking english as a second-part language.
  • Hitting children became banished in 1979, sweden was the first country to ban it, isn't that amazing?

After those facts you might want to move to sweden i believe.

I've just realised, i haven't shown any pictures of my horses yet, so here you go. The big brown one is Corona Mackenzie, a 10 year old mare, she is an mecklenburger. The little redbrown one is Mezza Corona, a 19 year old unknown pony category D, from   Denmark. Our red gelding, Tendens, is a 27 year old swedish warmblood.

Many people think about candy when they think about sweden. And that must have to do with how amazing our candy is. I've tasted american candy and it's bad if you compare to Swedish, never tried chinese though, but from what i've researched, it's not good either. But it all has to do with food Culture and what you're used to eating. I know for a fact that in china you eat a lot of green tea-flavored candy and snacks. That has become a trend here in sweden right now, to drink matcha latte and matcha pastries. The best candy store in sweden is Hemmakväll, i think there's a store in every city. Another good one where i live is Candy World, where they also sell a lot of American candy, snacks and sodas. The candy is very fresh and soft at both places, the worst thing i know is old and hard candy.

  • One thing that is unacceptable here in sweden, 2017, is homophobia. Like come on people! Whom a person choose to go home with is none of your business. There's nothing wrong with being anything other than heterosexual. It’s totally not a big deal if someone isn’t straight.

When people Think about sweden and swedish people a lot of assumptions comes up. Like we're all attractive and blond. I can tell you, we're all attractive in our own way, everybody is unique and i believe that everybody should feel that their uniqueness makes them special and beautiful.

And to get one thing clear, if you were born in sweden, you're swedish. There's no "swedish breed", we don't all have blue eyes and blond hair. Sweden is multicultural and people are of different ethnicities.

Some assumptions are sillier than others. My father came across someone who believed that we have polar bears in sweden and snow all year round, which is totally not true and quite a funny story.

i've found a video of shawn mendes visiting sweden, where he said to the interviewer that all swedish girls looks like supermodels, because they have those "crazy" eyes, all blue and green, he said that all people back in canada has brown eyes, he thinks it's rare and actually it is. Only 2% has green eyes in the world. So yes, it's rare. The majority has blue and green eyes, but there's a lot of brown eyed folks here too.

If i'm going to listen to swedish music it has to be hiphop or the band Kent. My favorite swedish rappers is Mwuana, broder john and Cleo. There's a lot of World-wide famous singers from sweden. Everybody must know about the older band Abba. Then there's younger more modern artists like Håkan hellström, Zara Larsson, Laleh, Miriam Bryant, Avicii (Swedish dj) and The Cardigans are also a famous Group, you know the ones who made "lovefool" and "erase/rewind".

In this post i'm going to discuss the usage of drugs and alcohol in Sweden. It's a lot of drugs out there, indeed... And the users becomes younger and younger. I believe that it has to do with weak adolescents, group pressure and a bad upbringing. Because if your parents aren't using drugs themselves and has warned their children about the dangers and consequences with drugs and raised strong adolescents whom can say no and has good values there wouldn't be a problem. Because if you're strong you can stand against group pressure. But then there's a procentage whom just wants to try out of curiosity. But the ones who gets addicted and use drugs on the regular, are the ones with mental illness, i believe.

Alcohol is the most regular and is a drug if you look at the facts. If it's under control, you can definitely drink beverages all your adult life. But of course it's not recommended for people underage. I just know that it's fun with alcohol, you get more courage, but you can also embarrass yourself, so you really have to learn about your limit, so accidents and embarrassments doesn't occur.

There's of course a huge downside to alcohol, it has ruined and splitted a lot of relationships and families. So it's nothing to play with. And you shouldn't use alcohol when you're sad, angry, anxious or anything other than calm and happy.

I don't believe young people in sweden do anything different from others in other countries. We study, hang out with friends, do our sports, party, create stuff and sometimes we don't do anything. 

The most popular sports here is ice hockey, horseback riding and soccer i think. And the most regular interests/hobbies you can see is cars (any type of vehicle really), music, dancing and reading. The more we have to do (that we actually enjoy doing), the happier we get. I know for a fact that just staying at home, not communicating with other people, not doing anything fun, cause us to become down and life becomes useless. So my point is that sports and hobbies are so important, super-important!

thank you,

Daniella
