The first and second graders at the art programme from my school Katedralskolan in Skara have a dance production called Della Donna - Dancing Through Life. In the show, you get to follow a woman's life from birth to death through her photo album. This show is so amazing. I couldn't stop cheering after every act.

My suggestion is for you to go check them out! The show is today, Friday, December 2 at 20:00 and tomorrow Saturday, December 3 at 20:00. It costs only 60kr and they'll also be fundraising for Children with Cancer. Book tickets on 073-816 25 51 today from now to 20:00 and tomorrow from 10:00 to 18:00.

Here are some tastes of what to expect from the show.

OMG, It's december guys! It feels like so many things happen in december... well, maybe I'm right. Here are 10 things to look forward to this month.

1. Celebration of advent every Sunday before Christmas. | 2. There's the Christmas calendar that you can open every day before Christmas. | 3. Christmas calendar series (at least in Sweden we have that) | 4. Christmas Holiday! | 5. Christmas Day - celebrate that Jesus Christ was born (to later die for our sins). | 6. Christmas presents - giving and receiving. | 7. The countdown for New Year after Christmas. | 8. The shopping sales between Christmas and New Years. | 9. The "I haven't done x since last year" jokes you prepare every New Years eve. | 10. The joy and laugher of winter time + Christmas time + New Years.

Sabina Ddumba is a black Swedish singer and I love her. It's really hard to find Swedish singers that are my colour and Sabina Ddumba gives me the inspiration I need. PS. this song is amazing, she sounds like a goddess.

My bus leaves school at 13.50 and I'm running late so I literally run from my locker to the bus. When approaching it, I see the door closing in front of me so I start waving and shouting "hallå, hallå" to the bus driver so he can see me and stop. He didn't, why? Because he was busy with something on his phone. He didn't even look up once when he started to drive. By this time I'm literally in front of the bus wanting so bad to knock on the door, but too scared to actually do it. He starts driving away, still looking at his phone so I wave to the people in the bus hoping someone would see me and ask him to stop. I just catch a glimpse of a boy and i try to point to the driver but it's too late. I ran as fast as i can trying to wave so he can see me, he doesn't.

Dear bus driver, when you're working, could you please not look at your phone. Forget that Facebook message, or that Instagram picture. Please focus on your job. The only reason I would understand to you using your phone at work is if an emergency were to happen. Otherwise, I do not understand because you're not only putting yourself in danger but the people you're driving.

I've been in an awful mood today too. The day started off with me finding out that Sweden is changing the IB programme's grade converting system to our disadvantage. This means it's harder for IB student to get to get into Swedish universities. Cambridge and Oxford accept 38 to 40 IB points in medicine while in Sweden, they'd then accept only 43 at the least. This is really huge because not so many people get 42 and above. 1% of IB graduates get 44/45. They want to change this directly, which impacts us terribly because ewe can't change programmes since it's our last term. They should at least wait three years before implementing this system.

I've been feeling a little bit down today mostly because if school. I feel like it's so much work to do and it's so stressful. The only thing I can do is hang on do my best. I didn't have my first lesson so I spent that time reading the last Engelsforstrilogin called Nyckeln. It was amazing! I've loaned a new book from the library called Made You Up by Francesca Zappia. So far, I'm in love.

There's something called the IB Christmas Party in the IB programme in Katedralskolan. The party has a tradition called Secret Santa where everyone in grade 1, 2, and 3 who participates in it gets an anonymous present while they get someone else an anonymous present. I've just received the name of the person I'm going to buy to and I'm so glad I got this person. hehe. I wonder who has my name and what that person has in store for me.

I've had such a terrible day. I've been in an awful mood the whole day and I hope nobody was affected by it. I don't like showing it when I'm mad or in an awful mood cause I hate hurting people. It's one of my fears, that I'm going to hurt someone without even realising it and not be able to apologise. I try hard to hide it, and in my opinion I'm really good at it.

The only thing I've been looking forward to is Reclaim in Skövde today. I just want to stop focusing on myself (for once), and focus on God. I want to sink deep in the music and take in the sermon in my heart. I wish I was more like Jesus... (Conceal don't feel, don't let it show - I mean Elsa got a point there).

You know what I've realised? I've changed myself and my way of blogging to fit into a frame that most bloggers have. Whitney, you stupid. I've even changed the language I blogg in (even if it was for a few days), just to fit in to the usual way of blogging here in Sweden. I need to get my priorities straight. Am I blogging for as many view as possible or am I blogging for expressing my view point and learning how to express myself in an open minded way where anyone should be able to converse with me? The second option is more like it.

I started this blogg to write about my life and express the view points I have. I want to have a voice that speaks for what I want and what I feel like sharing, not what is 'popular' and 'in' right now. I want to be me and blogg about what I want. No more caring about who sees my posts and who doesn't. DONE.

- Thanks Avura for indirectly reminding me of what I want.

Hej sötnosar! Idag har jag haft det skit. Varför? För att jag är tjej och jag mens som i sin tur leder till att jag får mensvärk. USCH! Jag pallar inte, det gör så ont!!!! Hann bara med en och en åttondelslektion idag. Fy vad mycket jag har missat i skolan på bara en sån kort tid. UGH!

Jag ska i alla fall på en middag ikväll. Jag har sedan någon gång i våras fått mitt medborgarskap och idag så vill min kommun fira mig och alla andra som också har fått medborgarskapet. Jag har inte så ont just nu som jag hade förut, men jag är så rädd att jag kommer få ont senare ikväll. Det känns så onödigt att åka dit för at sedan inte alls kunna va där för mina kramper vill ta livet av mig. Äsch, jag tror jag åker dit ändå... Hoppas ni har haft en bättre dag än mig.

I fredags var jag och typ alla treor i min skola på Framtidsmässa i Göteborg. För er som inte vet vad det är, så har Svenska Mässan haft en mässa från den 10-12 november. Mässan heter Kunskap & Framtid och handlar om livet efter studenten. Det var så inspirerande att vara där och prata med de olika representanter från de olika högskolor för nu har jag så många skolor som jag skulle kunna tänka mig att gå på.

Självklart fick jag godis (ett måste när man är på mässa), väskor, och även olika grejer som jag kan använda. Jag till och med fick en mini virtual-reality glasses. På vägen dit tog jag några kort med snapchat och... ta da... så blev jag ett spöke för man kunde inte se halva mitt ansikte. Still worked it tho.
