Last friday I went to Gothenburg again for the Håkan Hellström concert. Emelie and I had already gotten tickets in October, so this was something that had been decided for quite some time.

On the friday I met up with Emelie and her friends and her place for some wine and strawberries :) Later on Emelie and I just chilled, had even more wine and then we met up with her cousin and his girlfriend in Kungälv.

On Saturday we got up fairly early, got ready and then we went into town to go sightseeing. I really like Gothenburg, such a cute and cozy city. After that we went for lunch at this place called JOS. Their salads are so good 😍 and the place is super cozy!

After lunch we walked around a bit more and then we went back to Emelies place, chilled and drank some more wine. We got ready and then we went back into the city center to have dinner at the Barn and then some drinks before we went to Ullevi to go see Håkan. The burgers were really good! Such a nice place in the summer, to just sit outside and eat in the sun.

After dinner we went to Ullevi, so many people! It was crazy! Apparently there were 70091 people there that night.. The concert was so good! Im not really a big fan but two of the people im closest to are like obsessed with him so I guess it rubbed off a bit. It was the best concert I have ever been to! Just the whole atmosphere, the mood! WOW!

After the concert we grabbed some drinks and then we went home.

I should actually be studying right now but oh well.. So day 2 of summerburst was so much fun! Better than day 1 for sure! In the morning Erika and I were just chilling, got ready, had breakfast then we went to Patriks place again. Emelie was at her sisters (konfirmation) Im not sure what its called in english, so she joined us at like 17:00. Until then we all just hungout at Patriks place, played one too many drinking games. It was fun though. Then we all went to Summerburst together. As usual I kept loosing people.. But eventually found them again. I was alone for about 30 minutes but then I ran in to this guy Viktor who was friends with one of the Santa Barbara guys, so I at least had some company. We walked around a bit and then we found Emelie and Erika so then we decided to go eat since we couldnt find the others anyways. While we were standing in line for the food two of the exchange guys from Kalmar ended up standing behind us, so was nice to see them again. After we ate we hungout Im not quite sure what happened but we went back in and then we found all the guys by the drinking area. They were all standing up on a table dancing so it was pretty easy to spot them. That was when one of our friends got kicked out of the festival, I guess for dancing on the table. So they cut his festival band and everything, buy luckily one of the other guys was with him and they went up to someone who worked there and told them that his wrist band had fallen off because it wasnt tight enough so they put a new one on and he got back in... Cant believe the people who worked at summerburst believed that. So when they got back we just continued to party and dance until the festival was over. When it was all over I waited with one of the new Santa Barbara guys, until the lost and found was closed because he had lost his phone. Sadly he didnt get it back. When we sat there by the lost and found we saw all the stuff that people had lost and I seriously dont get how people lost some of that stuff.. Like a whole backpack, shoes, passports... Then we walked to Avenyn to meet the others. Half of the people were in line or at Push and the others were at this bar. So we went to the bar and met Nick, Manne, Jonas and Emelie and as I was standing there drinking my cider someone came up to me and just covered my eyes. I had no clue who it was but when I turned around I saw Viktoria. Omg I like nearly cried! I was so happy to see her again, I hadnt seen her since the day I left Santa Barbara. So nice to see her again! Shortly after that I left the bar and then we decided to go to Olearys and join Markus's friends, one of them being Viktor who I had run into earlier at Summerburst. After that we just went home.

The next morning we chilled at Emelies place for a bit and then we went to Patriks place to say bye to everyone. It really sucked! Felt like Santa Barbara all over again. After that it was time for me to go back to Kalmar.

This weekend was honestly so much fun! One of the best weekends by far! Made some great new friends and was so nice to meet all my SB friends again. So thank you to everyone who made it awesome!

Day 1 of Summerburst started off by going to Systemet to buy a bunch of alcohol. We got back to Emelies place, got ready and then we made some brunch.

After the brunch we went to Patriks place to start pre-drinking with everyone. A couple of new people had arrived to Patriks and it was so nice to see them again as well as get to know some of the new people from Santa Barbara. A real fun bunch! We played some games and then we got going to Summerburst. I kept getting öpst so at one point I was alone for an hour.. Just walking around looking for people but then I met up with Erika and we hungout until it ended.

After the final performance we met Nick and walked with him to Burger King. Then we went back to Patriks place and met up with everyone and then we all went out again. I joined the guys at the club but I left after like 30 minutes and went back to Emelies.

So many memories and feelings that were brought back and really made me miss Santa Barbara. I think that people who didnt live there like family and friends back home dont really understand what it was like living there and the whole lifestyle. It was so nice to talk to people who understood it all. It was just as nice to meet the new people as it was to see all the people that lived there when I did.


Day 2 was so much more fun! Honestly had one of the best weekends! Already miss it and everyone. Day 2 will be up tomorrow so check it out then.

Day 1 in Gothenburg I arrived at 20:00 and Erika and Emelie were standing there waiting for me. So nice to see them again, crazy how long its been. We went back to Emelies place to drop off our stuff and then we went out for dinner at this tapas place called Pinchos. You order the food through an app on your phone and the dishes are so cute and small. Plus the drinks are so good!

This drink tastes exactly like the candy Soda Pop (the candy on top of the drink) so good! 😍

The food was so good! After dinner we grabbed a drink on Avenyn and then we went to Patriks place to meet some of the Santa Barbara people that were crashing there. So nice to see them all again, as well as all the new people.

Then we went home and went to bed so that we could get up early on friday morning. I will post more about this weekend and Summerburst later.

Right now I'm on the train to Gothenburg for Summerburst. In 2,5 hours I get to see Erika and Emelie again, I seriously cannot wait! Its going to be so much fun! I havent seen Erika in over a year, which is crazy so we definitely have a lot to catch up on.

Tonight we are going to Pinchos for dinner and drinks. I have been looking at the menu for weeks now and the food looks so good! I am probably more excited for the food then I am for the festival tomorrow 😂 Then I guess we will just catch up and have some girl talk ;)

The semester is over in like two weeks and therefor there will be a lot of lasts. I think that most of the exchange students if not all that I hang with will be leaving after this semester. It sucks because they are the ones I hangout with the most. So last night they had their final dinner and I met up with them after the dinner to preparty and then go to Harrys. I had a lot of fun, good music, beer pong, great company, what more can I ask for!

On friday there was a 90s themed birthday party with the exchange students as well. Some people really nailed the whole 90s style.

On thursday I went out for dinner with two girls from my class. We went to Kalmar Kött & Bar. Good food and drinks and nice company of course. Definitely a place I would reccomend.

Before thursdays dinner ❤️

Last weekend my friend Maria came to visit Kalmar for the weekend. I met her at the airport on friday. We went to mine, ate and then we went to a pre party that one of the international students were hosting. We hung out there for a while and then Taylor and Elvira joined us to go to Harrys. We were like only 10 people there but we still managed to have a lot of fun.



On saturday we went into town, walked around and then had a fika. We went home after and had a sushi picnic dinner behind my apartment building. Later on in the evening we first went to olearys for a drink and then we went to Harrys again. We met up with Marias godbrother and his friends and hungout.

On sundsay we woke up pretty late and went to the "beach" to tan. We even went for a swim, and the water was actually not too bad!

Today was my second meeting with my physiotherapist and it finally feels like my "migraines" are starting to get better. Today they tried something new which was putting needles into my neck and back and he even suggested that next time we do the dry needling with electrical stimulation(ström), which is supposed to make the muscles relax. I dont really know if Im too into that.

Its so nice that they finally found the reason why I have been having these headaches. Since I moved back from Cali it just feels like they have been getting worse and worse. Its gotten in the way of school, my social life as well as personal life. A lot of people have been questioning it because it doesnt really look like im sick so its all just been really rough! Luckily I have had a person that has been there for me during doctor visits, late night ER visits and been very helpful through it all. I may not say it enough but Im very grateful for this!

Now that the headaches have started to clear up I feel like I have more energy and its time to get my life back together. Tonight I'm going out for a run and then maybe study a bit and watch a good movie.

Last week I went to Stockholm to celebrate Valborg. When I arrived on wednesday, Maria came over for dinner and then we went to lion bar and then to Solidaritet. It was a good night! It was nice to just go out and dance with my best friend.

On thursday my sister, Maria and I went to my older sisters place to play with Lovelia. Sweetest baby ever! Then in the evening I met up with Sångis who had just arrived in Stockholm and then Maria joined us for drinks. Later on Franco came, and we were all reunited. The fabulous four!

On friday we all met up for lunch at my favourite Sushi restaurant in Stockholm, Tokyo Diner. We decided to start Valborg earlier by drinking champagne with our sushi. So good, best combination! After that we went to Kungsträdgården, got ice cream and enjoyed the beautiful cherry blossom trees. After that I went away for a meeting and then when I came back Franco gave me a present. It was a Marc Jacobs bracelet. So pretty! Honestly, like I couldnt stop smiling. If you are reading this Franco then thank you! I love it! And thank you Maria for choosing it, you know what I like! In the evening I went out for dinner with my family, my dad had just gotten back from Canada so it was super nice to see him again.

Saturday was Valborg, so Sångis and I took the train at like 8 am to Uppsala. We met up with another Maria and went to the Ekonomikum (a park where like thousands of students hang on valborg) it was crazy! So many people. Listening to music and drinking at 10 am.. Oh swedish holidays. I ran into two old friends who I havent seen in like 3 year? Crazy! Then i saw Linda and Elina who I met in Santa Barbara. Sångis and I went back to Stockholm at like 16:00 and just chilled at my place until Franco and Maria joined us.

Such a good long weekend!
