Last weekend our school went to 설악산 for a little field trip. We were only there for one night but it was time well spent! The day consisted of strolling around for three hours in 설악산 national park followed by food and check in at the hotel. It was a rather nice hotel, blew my expectation by a hundred. It was so fancy, haha! Once at the hotel we had playtime with all the international students at level 1, approximately 100-120 students, playing games, singing and just having fun with each other and the teachers.

​Hey guys!

I've been gone for quite some time. Been customising myself to this lifestyle whilst struggling with my "demons" but realised that maybe if I write down my feelings instead of keeping them inside it might be easier to cope. 

So what's been up lately? Not much really, trying to enjoy myself as much as I can whilst keeping up with studies. The pace is really fast and there's a lot of information to take in. We had midterms two weeks ago (?) where I scored way better than expected which gave me more motivation to ace the finals. 

For the past days I've been mentally struggling with my GAD. I don't know why, but during periods it's way worse than what it normally is. I'm in one of those periods right now. There's this voice that keeps bullying me, triggering me, pushing me down, something that leads to my cope mechanism - eating. That's how my bulimia pretty much started off, and I don't want to get there ever again. But my binging and self esteem has been really low lately which makes me terrified of what might happen. I tried to keep those feelings in order by getting a gym members card. I was able to work out for a week and after that I got a cold that never go away. I'm still here, with a runny nose, throat hurting and coughing my lungs out - something that makes me unable to work out. That's pretty much what stresses me out the most. I've been sick for three weeks in a row now and I grew really tired of it, so I made a liter worth of Ginger Shots in hopes to eliminate this illness so that I can get back to my work out routine. 

So yeah, I'll mostly talk about my daily life, thoughts, struggles etc. Everything regarding my life ish.

Hello everyone! 

Today's been a somewhat productive day today. Me and Frida went to Lotte Market nearby and bought our dictionary for school and looked around for some clothes. It all ended up with us heading home with one shirt and some food. After that we just strolled around in Hoegi for some more clothing shopping - and we happened to find a local market where everything is rather cheap compared to other stores. So there's where we'll be heading for grocery shopping from now on! 

Right now we're just cooking some cup ramen for lunch, listening to some music and just relaxing. It's been two hectic days, we need to relax some as well ----

Hello everyone! This will just be a quick update 'cause it's so late here right now. It's 1.21 AM and I've been up on the go all day. Been experiencing new environments in Itaewon and got to meet some new (rad) people. Also got some more shopping done since I've been leaving lots of stuff at home to decrease my luggage weight - and to be honest I knew that I'd go buy stuff anyway haha! It's so cheap here and the people working have such nice service. I'm really enjoying myself! The weather's been really nice, woke up to 20C and I think it got to 27C at most with some cool winds. Amazing!

Here are some pictures, will do a more proper blog post tomorrow...!

Good night, evening or morning where ever you are!

So... my first food experience.

We were just strolling around after meeting up with each other, all four of us. Me and Frida were extreamly hungry since we hadn't eaten much during that day. We found this nice place and thought "oh lets get inside". Luckily for me and Nanna, we got into a sushi place. Hanna and Frida weren't too fortunate though since they don't fancy it.

They served us miso soup and some other extras before our food arrived. First of all-

We did not really know what we ordered cause there were no translations, obviously. The sushi was obvious but what kind of sushi? no idea. Frida and Hanna tried to ask the staff for what the noodles are but they barely spoke any english so they just went all in for it.

Now, I don't know how korean people stay so skinny WITH PORTIONS THIS BIG. The noodle soup they received was FOR LIKE THREE PEOPLE but according to them - one person. We could see people all around us eating this up rather quickly and here we are struggeling for our lives to finish half of it, haha!

This was my first time interracting with people who got really insecure since they couldn't speak english that well. Every other person, young as old, have been really good and confident in english (since they're the ones who comes up to us and starts the conversation), so yeah, my first experience with that. Nothing serious, just a memory since the whole situation was crazy and fun.

Hello everyone!

I'm finally back to where I can explain to you about my every day situation. For some reasons I haven't posted too much cause I didn't want to tell too many people around me about this decision before it actually taking place. But here I am, (not really) settled in my tiny dorm and very much alive.

The journey was a living hell. Stockholm to London was okay, was met by some rude people working there but that's okay I guess. But the change of departure from Hong Kong to Seoul was a whole nother story. We had 50 minutes to get off our flight until the plane was about to leave for Seoul. We checked the gate number which said 219, so like any functional human being we walked there. ONLY to find out that the flight, 20 minutes before departure, was changed to 25!! 25!!!! Which means that we had to run with all our bagage, thick clothing etc in 28C degrees humidity through the whole airport. We made it but that was too close of a call... Goodness I was so sweaty after that.

Arriving in Seoul we were utterly confused and stressed out about the arrival cards and bagage info. We, as the anxious people we are, thought that we'd have to pay a 10 000 000 WON bill for bringing 10 ml above the limit for perfume, lol. But it all turned out well, we had a good change before heading towards the express train only to be set into a situation with heavy bagage in the amazing metro system of Seoul. As a person from Stockholm I'm used to messy metro systems, but this was so confusing since it didn't really tell you that clearly what destination the train was heading towards to and what line you were on. But with lots of help of amazing ahjushis (surprisingly!! like really!) we managed to get to our station. ONLY TO BE FACED WITH THE FACT THAT WE CANT FINT THE DORMITORY AND THAT WE ARE "DELAYED" BY 7 HOURS SO WE WERENT EVEN SURE OF US BEING ABLE TO CHECK IN. But yet again, with the help of amazing people asking us if we need help, we managed to get to the dormitory all safe and sound. Kinda hungry, but safe.

We had this amazingly awkward food experience with two future class mates which I'll tell you about in a next blog post --

Hello everyone! Man has it been long... I've been up with everything lately, or at least so it feels like. My head is filled with stressful lists and things to make sure that are clear before September 19th (will write about that in Sept) and I'm so afraid that I will forget about something or that I'm missunderstanding payment thingies - things that are really important that they're being done correctly or else this will all end in failure.. But! I've been working a lot lately, trying to take my life day by day and focus on what I'm up to right now and not in a month. I find things easier that way. And lists, oh man am I making lots of lists! Everything to keep me structured!

But, what's up besides work and a busy mind? Nothing, really. My daily life structures around these things. I'm trying to give myself a break by hanging out with my friend or meeting up with my family. I've been trying to appreciate my home town a lot more, so I've been there for a couple of days just sigh seeing cause I'm a home town tourist, lol. I also went to a top roof bar with the most enchanting and breathtaking view over my beloved city. Sitting there with your best friend, a cosy blanket, a nice drink in your hand whilst watching the sun set - that's a luxury I wish upon everyone.

Ah well, I'll just be adding some photos here of what's been happening. There're not lots of them but hey, it's something right?

Hope everyone's doing fine. Remember to stay healthy, eat well and get lots of sleep! Huggies

Hello everybody! How are you holding up? I'm pretty occupied with school right now, so my days are pretty dull.
I've decided on doing a sugar detox now. I need to stop eating so much sugar. It's not necessary and it sure is an addiction to me. I want to live a life without being drawn to sweets so let's do this!
Watching some 13 Reasons Why before I go to sleep, trying to ignore my gnarling stomach, haha. Waaaay to hungry. Had my lunch a little bit too early so my stomach is screaming for food. Ah well, early breakfast instead I guess 🤷🏼‍♀️

Good night!

Hello guys! Huge break cause of school and once again I'll try to be more active 🙃
Today has been spent at town with my bestie. We've been looking at timberlands shoes and man imma buy me a pair after summer!
After that we went to the liquor store to buy some wine and cider, that'll be spent drinking outdoors tonight with some lit candles and chatting. Really looking forward to it.
We're on our way home now, and god knows what will happen, but that's one of the biggest surprises of life, ye?

I'll update some later! Hope you're enjoying your Saturday~

​Good morning everyone! Or evening, or night, depending on your whereabouts. 

It's past 8 in the morning here and I'm up all ready for the day. Will be doing some studying today at the library, but before that I will meet up with a friend of mine to cook some lunch together. And eat it of course. Besides from that I have no more plans. I think that I might have time to study some Korean tonight which is nice. Haven't had the energy or time to do so for quite some time now. I strongly doubt that I will be able to read it on a daily basis before summers break, because man these courses are intense... *Sad face* 

Now I will continue finishing my tea and after that start off with my studying. 

Wishing everyone a nice day!
