Time to recharge. Time to enjoy life a little extra. I've decided to have a worry free week here in New York city. It's very much needed.

Good morning folks!

Today I managed to wake up early, as early as 6.20 actually. Well I kind of got forced too but anyway, here I am. There wasn't any point going back to bed after that so I took a walk to one of the juice bars in the neighborhood to have breakfast. So right now I'm sitting here sippin on a smoothie and listening to some country while watching the city wake up. I love early mornings, it's probably my favorite time of day. I should really make it a routine waking up this early, it feels good.

I'm gonna start heading back home soon, it's going to be 40 C out today and I kind of hope to miss the heath wave. I would have enjoyed it if I could have spent the day by the pool or the beach, but it's that time of month where lying by the pool isn't the most awesome thing in the world...

Hope you all are having a great Tuesday!

I've never been a big fan of cooking. To be honest I would probably eat out every day of the week if I could. Eating good food really is one of my biggest pleasures in life. There's just nothing better than a good meal together with some good company. BUT since I'm now a very poor actress (haha) I have to force myself to make more food at home. You actually get used to it, and it's really not that bad.

The pictures are from today's lunch. Completely vegetarian. Pepper filled with vegetarian ground beef and squash with some cheese on top, and then some tomatos and squash on the side as well. Super simple and basic. A very easy meal to make if you're just like me or just moved out of your parents place and don't know what to make!

Talk soon.

Monday is becoming my favorite day. I spend almost every Monday morning in the studio recording music together with Haskel. Today we continued working on ''Fool for your love'', a song that I wrote just a while back. It's really fun when you get to see your songs come to life like that. I always write on either piano or guitar, and then I show it to Haskel and we start throwing ideas around, trying out different sounds and play around with it. I found it really helpful not working alone, and it's especially helpful working with someone who has a lot of experience. He's added so many cool stuff to my songs. Starting artist development is probably one of the best things I've done this year, I have so much to learn, I've learned haha!

Music is personal. Something I really like with this industry, both when it comes to acting and music, is that you really have to work on yourself. Taking care of yourself, making sure you eat well and sleep enough is more important than you would think. I've come in to the studio a bunch of times when I'm just not entirely there, and my voice isn't either. It's crazy how hard it can be to sing and preform when you're not feeling well, it really shows in your work. It's hard to leave your life behind and be in the moment. It can also be difficult to bring your life in to the music and the acting, but that's also when it becomes real. And that's what everyone wants to hear, music they can relate too, that inspires them. Artists give a lot of themselves just so other people can enjoy their work and find inspiration. So to all the artists out there, you're awesome!

I find music so healing. It's something I can always go to, in all kinds of situations. This world has a way of taking the fun out of it, since half of it literately is business. But at the end of the day you just got to stay true to yourself and do what you love, no matter what the rest of the world thinks. It's meant to be fun and let's keep it that way!

I'm back! I decided to take a break from blogging for a while and now it's already been a couple of months since the last time I wrote. I've missed it, I really have. So here I am, back at it again!

So what has happened since last time? Well for now I'm unemployed, simply because I have no other option than to be unemployed haha! I just filed for a visa to be able to stay in the US for another three years. I'm happy to say that I have finally applied after working on this visa for almost a year. The process is crazy but absolutely worth it. I'm lucky to have a great team of people helping me, that made the process a lot easier. But now, there will be a couple of months of just waiting, since you got to have a visa to be able to work and get paid here.

BUT luckily there are other ways to keep busy. I've been writing a lot of music lately and I'm trying to put my focus on to that. I'm working with Haskel Jackson and I'm right now doing artist development with him. He's extremely talented and I will hopefully soon be able to show you some of the songs we've been working on. I feel like everything takes a lot of time in the beginning. You have to find your sound, get used to working in a studio etc etc. I've spent so much time working by myself when it comes to music that it's almost a little scary to open it up to the world. But you'll get to hear something soon, promise.

My 22nd birthday is coming up, why does that feel so close to 30? I can't possible have a 30 year crisis already? I've always liked the thought of becoming older, it has never in my life bothered me. But I've realized that getting older comes with the pressure of being successful, whatever that means. 25 has always been the plan, by 25 I should be where I want to be. Well there's 3 years to that, a lot can happen in three years. On a positive note, my 22nd birthday will be celebrated in New York City! I think mom and I have been looking into every single state and city in America but for some reason we always end up in New York for our vacations. But I can't really complain, New York is after all the most beautiful city I know.

Glad to be back, happy to write and share my days and thoughts with you again!

Talk soon.
