Friday, I spent with Carola. We were going to Venice. I got on the bus and Carola was gonna jump on at her stop but she missed the bus so had to get off and wait for her. Haha all good. I was so tired, like I've been a lot lately. We got to Venice and walked to Abbot Kinney were we grabbed a coffee and shared a nacho plate at "The Butchers Daughter". Such a nice place and it smelled like an Italian restaurant. After that we walked some more down Abbot Kinney Blvd, took some pictures against a cool wall, found a Scandinavian store and towards the canals. SO BEAUTIFUL. We decided to get rich ASAP and move there. We took the bus back to Santa Monica to meet Silvia and the 3 of us went to True Kitchen. It was really good and we had fun. Ended the night with Cheesecake from Cheesecake Factory and "My Fair Lady" at Carola and Silvia's place. The movie was buffering so much in the middle that we couldn't continue and I was tired so I went home around 00:30. I was a very nice day.


1. I got very exciting seeing the Buzzfeed building even if it was not the main office.
2. "Huset" - The Scandinavian store. Which means "The House".
3. Fika is the most important Swedish thing.

2. Our lattes that were very good.
3. And the nacho-plate. All at The Butchers Daughter <3

What would I do without you? BITCH <3

Thursday night did me and Emma spend some quality time together. We felt like we haven't seen each other in forever, which may sound crazy since we live together, but we got so use to doing almost everything together so to basically only saying good night and good morning and not having so much time in between felt like we haven't seen each other. Anyways, she worked early and I worked a few hours midday, but in the afternoon we went to Santa Monica. She did some shopping, I was not really in the mood so I helped her instead. Then we went to see "Gifted" and oh how lovely that one was. It was beautiful and funny and well made. A drama in the best sense. We both cried, which I've come to the realization that I don't do that often. I get moved, but don't really cry. Anyways, it was very good.

Friday: Woke up from the terrible news about Stockholm (see post below) so the whole day was pretty surreal. Had my internship as usual and had a really nice day despite everything. Met Carola and Silvia for dinner at "Native Food Café" and then we went to see "Beauty and the Beast". I was so tired so it was hard to appreciate it fully (see Sunday)

Saturday: I spent the day with my Carola. We did an video audition for Yuhans project, and it took a couple of hours. Then we had dinner together at "Spireworks" there in Westwood, which was really nice. Ended the night with a ice creme sandwich at DiDi Reese (love <3) and singing songs on the bus stop waiting for Carolas bus home. A very nice day.

Sunday: Woke up at 11 after weird dreams all night. Emma bought bagels for us at Noah's Bagels which was so nice. Then I spent the day editing an acting reel for myself and later went grocery shopping cause have nothing to eat. I tried going to the gym but ended up only being on the spinning bike for 20 min, spinning in a moderate speed and do a few situps while watching "Jane the Virgin" which made me mostly watch the episode towards the end. Saga texted me and we decided to go watch "Beauty and the Beast" and since I did not use my Movie Pass last time I could use it this time. I am so happy I saw it again since I was so tired on Friday and could not really focus. This time I saw all of the magic and beauty and the amazingness fully focused. It was magical and was so happy to see it with Saga as well. We both felt like little kids again.

Woke up on Friday morning with the terrible news about what happened in Stockholm. Can't say I was surprised, sadly enough it was only a matter of time before it happened and I feel like a lot of people in Sweden felt the same way. But it still is a chock to see the beautiful, great city you call your own, to be on the news in a segment about a suspected terrorist attack. The place where most of your friends and family live, and the exact location being a 10 minute walk from your place where your parents live. Hearing about people you care for, being there 15 min before or working in the same building or a few buildings away. And being so far away from it is both better and worse because you can't feel the mood. You can't feel the terrified people or how strong the community are afterwards.

A 11 year old girl, a British man working in Stockholm and a tourist from Belgium has been confirmed dead. One more victim was there but still no confirmation of who. Luckily it was no more than 4. Even though that was 4 too many.

I am so grateful that it was my family who broke the news, that I knew that they were ok and the same with my closest friends writing. Also being so far away made the facebook marking "I am safe" so much easier.

Thank you to all of you here in LA and also in Germany writing to me even though I am not there, but to see how I was and if my family was safe. Meant a lot and reminded me that my family really is fine.




Denna version av Stockholm i mitt hjärta är så fin <3

I have been so incredibly bad at blogging, it's been more than a month!

Update on life:

Work: I have been at my internship for 2 months now. It's tough with a lot of new things, but I feel like I have learned a lot and keep on learning.
I have also started to baby sit, been with 2 different families 4 times in total (3 with one and 1 with the other). Feels so nice to be able to get some toddler time. I miss the kids from the pre-school sometimes. Perfect job for me.

School: I had my last directing class a week ago, and my class in improve and overall on Thursday. Feels so weird to be done with UCLA Extension. Sure, can still take classes but will not be the same as the feeling of doing a certificate. It is both exciting and scary what the future holds.

Friends: Yesterday did we have a goodbye party for Gaia. She is going back to Italy after only 3 months here. She really got in to our friend group and we became a crew all 5 (me, Isa, Emma, Carola and Gaia) of us. Today me, Isa, Carola and Gaia had lunch at cheesecake factory and then I had to say goodbye to her for real. They all hang out tonight but I am working.

Mind: Been a kind of tough time the last couple of weeks. I have been very busy with internship, projects, work and school. Have had a lot of things on my mind, personally and "professionally". Have been both hard but also fun. Just didn't have a lot of time to breathe. Feels like life is rushing though and is not always what is expected. But the last couple of days I have tried to find my way back to my old way of thinking. To not expect life or people to be the way you think and you want it to be, but to embrace what actually happens. It sounds cliche but cliches exists for a reason.

God, I suck at blogging. Let's catch up.

Valtentines day/Galentines day: I spend this day spreading love to my beautiful friends. Instead of panicking over no date, just loving my friends instead. We went to Trader Joe's to buy food. Me, Isa and Carola bought pizza and ice creme and wine and brownies. We met Silvia at Carola and her place. We 4 played Uno and talked for hours. Emma and Gaia came after there class and we ate the rest of the food. It was a great night.

This Thursday I took the next step in on my journey here in LA. Me and Saga had the OPT meeting with the school to change status to OPT (Optical Practical Training) which will allow us to work in USA for 1 year with what we have studied starting May 15th for my sake. I am both excited but also terrified. So often do I wonder what the hell I am doing. I have no plan for how I will get money in case I don't get a job within acting since I am not allowed to work in any other field. There is one side of me that tells me that it will all work out, you will see once you start that this worrying was for nothing. But the other side just tells me how stupid I am, how much stress this will bring me. The challenging side vs the safe and more logical one. I don't have a logical solution at the moment, I'm working on finding one. But I am so happy that I have a family that support me no matter what. Whether I stay or go, they would do what it takes to help me. The easiest thing would to just pack my stuff and move back to Sweden again after my certificate is done, but something inside me tells me to at least try and right now I will follow that voice to see where it takes me.

Last sunday I started to feel sick so I stayed home on Monday from my internship. I went on Wednesday cause I thought I was feeling better but that only made me worse. I went to class yesterday and am planning on going to class tomorrow too cause I don't wanna miss anything but I am not feeling good. Went out to print some things today and of course did it rain. Other wise I just stay in bed, watching movies which is nice. Catching up on my "One movie a day" - challenge that I always fall behind on. I watched " Que Culpa Tiene el Nino" a mexican movie and "Footloose" the 2011-version today. Watched "Boyhood" a few days ago too. If you haven't seen that one, please do. The concept of filming for that many years is so cool.

I leave you guys with a nice cover of "More than words" that I discovered today.

Yesterday I finally got a day off where I could just breathe. I am so grateful that I have an internship, don't get me wrong, but I need my days of just doing nothing and eating chocolate hehe. When the night came I wanted to go to the movies and since most people have class or similar I went alone. For the first time ever, completely alone. It may sound silly but a year ago I would not have gone alone, I would have stayed home afraid of looking like a lonely loser, which is crazy. I still prefer going with other awesome people, but going alone had a certain charm to it too. And I could not have chosen a better movie theatre of the debut. I went to Broadway in Santa Monica which has comfy leather chairs that are reclinable. How about that? Anyways, I saw "Arrival". It was kind of confusing at first, but I liked it. Afterwards, did they show a "Behind the scenes" video.
