Monday 18th September
Today I've got the whole day to myself! No work and no plans. I honestly didn't know what to do with myself. I woke up at nine but decided to stay in bed. I ended up on my phone until around 12, a little longer I'm proud to say. But hey it's an obligation free day!
When I finally got out of bed, I made myself a nice breakfast. I usually don't eat breakfast because I usually don't have time to, but it was nice to just sit down and eat.

Breakfast

The rest of the day I spent trying to not get bored. So I tidied up in my room, painted an ugly painting, drew some sketches, listened to music and played the sims. I guess I could've done more, but it turned out to be an alright day!

See you soon xx

Friday 15th September
I woke up to G asking if I wanted coffee. Which isn't a bad way to wake up, especially since he came with breakfast too! That's one of my fav things about staying at his place; I always get breakfast in bed.
He unfortunately didn't have time to eat it with me, because he was going to a lecture.
While he was away I read for a bit, watched some YouTube videos, and did my makeup.
I haven't had a break from work for a while now, so it was nice to have some me time.

It's not Instagram pretty but he made it so

G came home announcing we'd go to IKEA! Maybe it's because I'm a Swede but I freaking love that place. Isis and I used to go there all the time back in high school. We'd plan our future apartment and eat the cheap cinnamon buns, and or ice cream.
I was also excited because G really needs to give his bedroom some love.
We rearranged the furniture last night, trying out a layout I suggested. And it turned out great! It gave the room a really nice flow.

He tidied up the room a little and then we left. It took about an hour to get there taking the train and then the buss. But it didn't feel that long, even though the rain was pouring down.

Equally excited

We didn't spend as much time there as I'd like because G had made gym plans with his friends. But we got what we came for, a rug (the same one I got last month) new beddings, shelves for the bathroom and a measuring cup for cooking. He treated me with hotdogs and then we took the buss back. Then the train and then the buss again. ๐Ÿ˜‚
When we got home we set everything up then he me made me hot cocoa, and left for the gym.

Hot cocoa

I thought my babe treating me ended there. But when he go home he treated me with a "fancy" candle lit cup a noodle dinner. Haha I have no idea when he became a cheese ball, but I'm loving it!

Shitty blogger coming through! I haven't really had an excuse not blog. Bloggable stuff has happened. I guess the only excuse that is kinda alright is that I haven't been taking a lot of photos.
I don't know about you guys but blog posts without pictures, unless it's about feelings or rants and stuff, (stuff you can't take a picture of) aren't that fun to read.
I also keep this blog as a sort of diary, so whenever I use an other way of documenting my life, my presence here fades. But I will try to do better! I do love this blog even if it doesn't always show. I like that my friends can keep up with my life, even if we can't spend time together. So let's see how far I'll get this time!

Alright, so what's been happening since last time?
I've been working a lot, for two reasons. I'm a temp so I don't have a set schedule so I want to take as many shifts as possible at the beginning of the month.
So I'll know that I'll make enough money.
I also like working intensely so I can take several days off to spend time with G.
Sure, we live only 45min away from each other but it does make a difference.
The good thing is that he's studying full time now, so whenever I'm free he's free too.

I've been getting ready for fall!
I cleaned out my wardrobe from all the summer stuff, and the clothes to get rid off. I'm so proud of my self, it's so organised (it's colour coordinated).
I changed the beddings to be all autumn colours, and I've brought in a bunch of candles in my room.
I've bought a lot of clothes from ASOS, almost all knits. Preparing for the cold that's coming.

I dunno but beet recipes are fall like right?

Work has been good too. I'm not the happiest about my line of work. It's not a bad job at all and the pay is good considering. But it's not really me, I need a lot of mental stimulation or else my ever spinning mind kinda get the best of me.
But lately I've been working hard to stay positive, and it's actually been working.
I'm generally happy actually. Like yeah I want to move on in my life, but I'm happy in knowing that I will.
I also got a free pair of jeans from work because we won a competition, so that's really cool. And we had an awesome staff party the other day. I'm starting to get closer to my coworkers, which I'm really happy about.

Work party

I've been at G's place since Wednesday, so you know I'm happy. I'm not sure but I might stay the rest of the week, because I still haven't seen any shifts up. We've just been chillin, you know watching movies making dinner and such. It's been raining, heavily so that's a perfect excuse to stay in. Life is just good right now. There's always space to make it better but I'm happy. Yay!

It's not only Beyoncรฉ's birthday today but also marks a year being back in Sweden. My time in Paris seems so far away. Almost like it never happened, I'm not sure how I feel about it.
I miss parts of it, like spending time with friends on a regular basis. I miss walking out the door and having so many opportunities of discovering. I miss going out dancing. I miss my little Parisian crew.
I do miss the city itself and I miss my independence. I miss my long aimless walks, listening to music and sometimes just the city itself. I miss the parks and sleeping in them. I miss the beauty of Paris.
I miss the feeling of "doing something" with my life. Like just being there made my life feel more legit so to speak.

What I don't miss is the residence I lived in. They always treated me like a child. I don't miss the stupid rules there. I don't miss sharing a kitchen. I don't miss the school I went to, especially not the principal or my mentor. I don't miss the anxiety of the school work. I don't miss being so "poor" that I would spend the weekends pretty much not eating anything.
I don't miss the tourist, fucking tourist, taking pictures of everything, walking slowly af, ugh and all the kissing.
I don't miss all the couples that were sooo in love. Let me tell you Paris is not a good city to be heartbroken in. ๐Ÿ˜‚

My time in Paris will probably always feel surreal, like an other lifetime almost. There are a few things I got to keep though. Andres is the only one I'm still in contact with on the regular, we talk almost everyday. The others I see on social media, we like each other's post/pics and leave comments here and there.
But Andres is more than enough, when I left everyone said that we would all stay in touch, I'm much more of a realist so I just waved it away. I thought the same thing about Andres but I've come to realise that I've probably made a friend that's going to stick around, an other lifer!
An other thing that I got to keep is the fact that I did it. Sure I get the bragging rights of it, but it's the sense of pride that cherish. I've done the living abroad thing. I'm going to do it again I'm sure, but after Paris I know I can do it.
I feel like I grew a lot there as a person, I'm
less shy and more confident.


I can't believe it's been a year, damn I really need to keep my French up.

See you soon xx

Alright so I love dogs, especially pugs and frenchies. I'm completely infatuated with them! A pug or frenchie can't walk pass me without my heart skipping a beat. I just want to pick them up and run away with them. It's a literal obsession. I've always known that I would be a dog owner at some point in my life. It was just a matter of time and good timing.
Since bunny died a couple of months ago ( I was way to sad to write about it) I've felt such a void in my life and in my apartment. It just doesn't have a soul anymore.

Although my darling Roger will always have a place in my heart, I still miss him like crazy, I feel like I need a new bestie.
A dog is a huge responsibility however, so as much as I want one, now is not the time. I can't afford one (unless I go into my adulting/apartment account) and my unpredictably work schedule wouldn't allow it.
I'm completely lost in my life, I don't know what I want, or it's more like I don't know what's achievable. I don't even know where I want to live, just not here.
So it's hard to say where I'll be in a couple of years. But today I've decided that I'll have a pug before I'm twenty five! Or before 2020 has ended. That's it that's the only thing I'm now sure of. That's my goal!

So I set up a special savings account and named it Pug. I'm going to try to save 1000 a month but I have to at least save 750 a month to reach my goal in time.
I also want to be studying when I get the little bugger so I'll have a lot of time to care for it when it's a puppy. So that's also a deadline for getting the rest of my life started. Haha deadline or motivation you choose. So yeah wish me luck!

Here's a bunch of Pinterest pugs
You're welcome!

Wednesday 30th August
When you're broke as me and G are at the moment, you can't really do anything. So we planned a day of free stuff.

Brunch


We started our day with a fancy brunch, using his free brunch gift card. He can't remember where he got it from but it was probably from a birthday or something.
He's talked about using it since we first got together, but I said to wait until we're broke to use it. Today was that day!

After brunch we went for a little museum trip. I've heard that there's a free museum day in Cph, G thought it was on Wednesdays so we just went in.
He could've been wrong though, because we saw people paying to get in.
But I mean nobody stopped us so...

No don't press the button

Creepy room where everyone looked gray

We ended our day with a walk though the very touristy parts of Cph. A cozy end to a cozy day.

I'm sad that summer is almost over, but damn I'm excited about fall! It's my favourite season. Because you get to wear cozy knitted stuff and drink hot beverages, and you don't feel bad about staying inside. Autumn fashion is my fav too, all the reds and the yellows.
I tend to have two styles during fall, cozy af or full on witch mode. Fuzzy or boss ass bitch.
There's so much to love about fall, the changing colours of the leafs, the brisk breezes on a sunny day, the pumpkins, the pretty lights. It's the beginning of candle season, and hot chocolate season. Ugh I'm so so excited!

An other reason I fall is my fav, is because I see it as a fresh start, for some reason. The first of September is kinda my new years. That's when I want to renew myself and my surroundings.

My plan is to really get the most out of this season before sucky winter starts.
I'm striving for that Pinterest autumn. Hopefully I'll get my mom and G in on it, they're the two people I spend the most time with so.

Here's a little list of things I want to do before all the leafs are gone:

๐Ÿ Bake a seasonal pie
๐Ÿ Go to the movies
๐Ÿ Play in the leafs
๐Ÿ Go to a Halloween party
๐Ÿ Dance in the rain
๐Ÿ Listen to the rain
๐Ÿ Drink a lot of tea/coffe/hot cocoa
๐Ÿ Chill a lot
๐Ÿ Do a dish or cake with pumpkin in it
๐Ÿ Watch American Horror Story
๐Ÿ Take a bunch of cute pics
๐Ÿ Go for long walks (preferable in parks)

An other thing I really have to do this fall/winter is to study math. Ugh I hate maths but I simply have to. But let's focus on the positive. Because fall is almost here!

Autumn

Getting that Pinterest
Inspo on

Ugh I'm so tired right now. I couldn't really sleep last night and had to get up around eight this morning. I am not a morning person, but I planned to be at G's at 11.00. Which meant that I had to take the 09.56 train. Hahah this must be so boring to read but I'm too tired to care. You know what I'll just post a few pictures from today.

It was a fun day with loads of dancing and celebrating! But now I'm going to sleep ๐Ÿ˜ด

See you soon xx

So yesterday was rough to begin with, but I luckily managed to turn it around. Thank god for that!

Anywho I've been working a lot, pretty much everyday since I got home from Berlin. It's been a little bit too intense for me so I've decided to take a wee break from work. Especially since I had to leave early on Sunday because I had a little panic attack. I'm not sure why I have them it just happens every now and then. Since G isn't working anymore (because he's starting his masters) so I thought it would be perfect to spend my time off with him.
So yesterday we spent the day at the Malmรถ festival, and G did a little shopping (not at the festival).
Today we spent the day in Cph. I've been wanting to go to the botanical gardens here for a long time, and today was finally the day!
We started the day with taking the train to Cph to have coffee with one of G's friend.

After that we made our way to the gardens. We both got really inspired to buy some of the plants there.
Especially the Mimosa, aka the shy plant, it closes it's leaves when you touch it. If there are any OG's out there you'll remember that I've tried to grow one of those myself.
The first time was when my mom and I came back from Senegambia in 2015. But then my mom threw away the seeds. The second time was in early 2016 when I bought a mimosa growing kit at Urban Outfitters but that one either died or never grew, can't remember which.
So when G said that he wanted Mimosa to be his next plant, I suggested we'd go to Urban to get ourselves a growing kit.
They've probably stopped selling them though because we couldn't find them. But G found an other growing kit. One of these days I'll grow a successful Mimosa!

Sunday 30th July

G and I came home around 07.30 the "night" before but we went up at 11.00 since it was the last full day in Berlin. Our flight was in the evening the next day but Isis and Adam where taking an early flight. As a last thing we thought going back to our fav restaurant would be nice, Isis just had to taste the shrimp dumplings. But it was too early to eat there so the three of them started playing card games. I hate card games and I didn't want to spend the last day in Berlin in the apartment so I was moping on the balcony, at least the sun was shining on me. I was so bored and restless I tried calling pretty much everybody that I talk on the phone with, Andres, Coco, Pow pow, my mom and my dad, the other two peeps I talk on the phone with were playing cards in the other room. And not one of them picked up, not one!
Like what are the chances of everybody being busy on a sunday afternoon?
The others were having the time of their lives (I heard from their laughter) and i was bitter af.

Selfies to pass the time

I found the filter that reflects my soul

When I had finally given up and went back to bed they felt it was time to eat. I kinda wanted to continue acting like a two year old, but my manners took over, and the thought of food helped a lot. We went to Cho Dรดng and ordered so much food, it was like we were food critics. And it was just as good as we'd remembered it to be. God I love that place!

Happy Ness

Let's eat!!


After eating I wanted to go for a last exploratory walk about town, Isis and Adam were and G kinda had to join me. And we were of on our final adventure of the trip!

I love hippos
