Odense - my new home!

Gaaah. Have been to "Den Sociale Højskole i Odense" and talked with my socialrådgiver (my contact person here in Odense as an exchange student) and woo hoo...I am excited!!! I may stay in Denmark for a while - longer than I first planned. YAY! But we´ll see.

Today it´s Tuesday (duh) but it means: choir practice and later on Carlsens Kvarter - the pub. Love it.

Odense

Have been here for about a week now and I am considering to stay. I mean...stay. Hehe. Who knows. A short update what I´ve been up to:

  • a lot of walks
  • been riding the bike all over the city. Yay!
  • tried different cafes (and the best chocolate cake EVER!)
  • been singing in the gospel choir (90 people showed up - amazing)
  • met a lot of new people (and they are all taking such a good care of me/us)

And a lot of more things...and more to come. YAY!

To do a puzzle is not that easy...

I was bored..and had already washed all the clothes, cleaned the house, organized song sheets so I decided to do a puzzle. Hmpf. 3000 pieces. That´s ridiculous. I got even more bored..and decided to not finish it. Good job Lina.

 

Want to do crazy things...but not by myself.

home alone

C went back home to Gothenburg yesterday afternoon and my parents are on a trip to Skåne (southern part of Sweden) so I´m home alone. Gosh, I suck on some things when I´m alone...have come to understand that I need people around me if things are gonna be good. It sucks. BUT have had a great time with C! Been to my favourite cafe´s downtown, been shopping alot..hmm (not good when you are trying to save money - but it was fun!) Went Thursday evening (yes, it´s at about 7PM when C and I took the pictures) to one of all the lakes we have around here. It has been about 30 °C (86°F) the latest days so it was really nice and warm...

Will organize things at home today and study some. Only about three days left til L from the States will come. Woo hoo!

Because the world is round it turns me on
Because the world is round...aaaaaahhhhhh

Because the wind is high it blows my mind
Because the wind is high......aaaaaaaahhhh

Love is all, love is new
Love is all, love is you

Because the sky is blue, it makes me cry
Because the sky is blue.......aaaaaaaahhhh

Aaaaahhhhhhhhhh....

I don´t get this song...hmm..but I love it. And today I don´t get my life..even more confusing. Feel kind of deep today but working hard on to not think. I think way too much. Not good. Usch.

hope you´re having a great summer!

 

it´s all possible.


I have to finish packing...and what do I do...writing a list. It´s taken from Emma and related to my cell.


Have I kissed number 2?
Nope.

What kind of relationship do I have with number 20?
A friend from "D" during the fall 2008

When am I gonna meet number 30?
I have no idea. Hopefully next time I´m in Uppsala?!

Is number 18 cute?
Yes, she used to be a close friend to me.

First impression of number 13?
That´s one of my aunts..hmm. She met me when I was a newborned child - so I don´t remember..

Do I like number 14?
Yes, one of my closest friends from high school.

Have I met number 3 the latest month?
No...it was a long time ago.

When am I gonna meet number 26 next?
Hmm. Next youth board meeting?! Don´t know when...

Am I a close friend to number 23?
Think we are getting closer to each other and are on our way to get to know each other better. So pretty close.

Have I been to the movies with number 4?
Nope.

Would I like to go out with number 35?
Yes. It was a long time ago...

What do I talk about with number 5?
To be honest I´m not sure which of all the "A´s" it is. Crap.

Would I mind to give number 9 a hug?
Absolutely. I miss her alot. A close friend from "D"

What kind of relation do I have with number 24?
Good and pretty close. We used to share apartment in Östersund!

What would I like to do with number 25?
Meet him, his son and his wife - I used to study with her in Uppsala!

What´s the best with number 8?
She kind of saved my life during the last year. Loved to talk with her, even it was a hard time.

Do I usually meet number 16?
When I´m in town. She´s my aunt by marriage.


Happy 4th of July!

Next year I might be in the States during the 4th of July..and I´m hopefully gonna dance like crazy to bluegrass. Woo hoo! But I did it today anyway..while packing. Not the same though, I think.

thoughts

i am running late AGAIN with the english assignment. guess, this is how i nowadays work...gosh, i´ve changed alot. so gonna study today - finish the assignment then finally cut and colour my hair. need it so badly.

i get really tired of myself sometimes and i have come to understand that i think waaaaay too much. BUT how do i change my thoughts? i can´t stop to think. gosh, this is really frustrating (as you can see)..hmm. i need to focus on something totally different when there are too many thoughts,  BUT again, how? it´s hard to just change the subject when you´re busy to think. i have to practice alot and perhaps one day it will work out fine..without me even analyzing and think that i have to change my thoughts. mmm. that´s a goal. this was a really confusing text. sorry. but it was just about my thoughts. hehe.

so now i´m gonna think on my english assignment. just the assignment. nothing else. yes, i am working on it. trying.

over and out.

crazy yesterday

  • worked in Linköping
  • train-ride back to Norrköping
  • fika at Broadway Express with my cousin
  • a man walked in to the café and realized he knew my cousin. turns out he´s playing the violin at the final of Wilhelm Stenhammar International Music Competition and asked if we wanted to listen to it. so we did, for free. me like. it was crazy. but i like these unexpected happenings.

random pictures taken yesterday


baked a chocolate cake at the kindergarten
(it´s for their coming picnic on Monday)
the picture is for you L. hehe.


on my way from train station to see my cousin
love the parks in Norrköping

honesty...[updated]

...is to feel what you truly feel and not act or try to ignore your emotions


The Call

It started out as a feeling
Which then grew into a hope
Which then turned into a quiet thought
Which then turned into a quiet word

And then that word grew louder and louder
Til it was a battle cry

I´ll come back
When you call me
No need to say goodbye

Just because everything´s changing
Doesn´t mean its never
Been this way before

All you can do is try to know
Who your friends are
As you head off to the war

Pick a star on the dark horizon
And follow the light

You´ll come back
When it´s over
No need to say good bye

You´ll come back
When it´s over
No need to say good bye..

Now we´re back to the beginning
It´s just a feeling and no one knows yet
But just because they can´t feel it too
Doesn´t mean that you have to forget

Let your memories grow stronger and stronger
Til they´re before your eyes

You´ll come back
When they call you
No need to say good bye

You´ll come back
When they call you
No need to say good bye..

[Regina Spektor]


[update]

i have to let things be. but it´s scary. i have to choose the, for many people, right road. but it´s scary. i am sick tired of many things..i have to change it. i am the only one who can change it.. but it feels good to not walk alone. tack for all your love.

missy higgins [updated]

i surely needed a break from the blog..but i have missed it, even if i´ve been busy - and still am. a hard coming week in school. final exam on friday so i will study alot. but first a break and let me introduce a music favourite.


love it

visit her website
or
listen to some songs on youtube


Mother´s Day

It is mother´s day today here in Sweden. I´m actually against these kind of days because I think it has more and more become a day where you "should" buy things and that´s not a way I want to show my love for people. Relations are really important in life and at the same time they might be hard. I love my mom even things have been hard. But she´s a fighter and she inspires me alot. You´re great mom and keep on fighting!
love

the library

i used to visit the library a lot when i was a kid. it was about a three minutes walk from my house, so really close and i loved it. but school started to take more time and i didn´t let myself read, other than books from school..pretty sad. i started this friday to sit at the library in school and i was thinking about my childhood and history of being at the library every other day, and how much i miss to read more than i do. but summer is soon here and i´m gonna start to read through the pile of unread books i have then. yay. but first finish the school term. the exam is getting closer..guess where i´m gonna sit?!


my desk this morning


read, read and read..

Time after time

5 years ago...
... i turned 19 in just a few days. it was last year in high school and only a few weeks left for graduation. i did my last operation (hopefully the last one ever). moved to the states in august and spent one semester in washington dc. met new friends from all over the world and i´m still in contact with some of them. awesome.

3 years ago...
...i was about to turn 21. studied music in uppsala, a city i loooove. spent summer in the archipelago and in germany and then moved back to uppsala. worked at different daycare centers during the fall.

1 year ago...
...almost 23 and was about to finish second semester at the university in östersund. the whole spring was like a fog. i took care of a bunch of americans during one week in summer - so much fun! spent some time in the archipelago, was not in a good shape and moved back to östersund in august, had a break from school and tried to take care of myself. will never forget this year.

3 months ago...
...february...i went to a b-day party in stockholm where i entertained by singing and playing together with my cousin. was great! did one of my best trips ever where i went to the states to visit my special friend. didn´t want to leave..

Yesterday...
...wednesday...i was in school from about 8am to 1pm. studied some at home and tried to think positive. didn´t work out that good =/

Today...
...it´s SNOWING again (hmpf...come on it´s may!!!). going to school after lunch. off at 4pm, go home and study and no other specific plans. want to drink coffee at a café.

Tomorrow...
...friday...going to be in school from 8 to 2pm, i think. don´t have any plans yet, but will probably study some and then try to relax.

In one year...
have no idea where i am in the world. not in sweden, i think. perhaps in Austria or still in Denmark?  i don´t know...will soon end my fifth semester (of seven) at the university. will start my second practical schoolterm during fall and don´t know where i´m gonna do it. sweden? abroad? who knows? i am a big question mark.

Until then...
finish school for this semester. spend summer in Norrköping, meet friends i haven´t seen for a while, spend time in the archipelago, just relax and breathe. then move to denmark. woo hoo!

["took" this list from julia]

The Prayer


I pray you´ll be my eyes, and watch me where I go.
And help me to be wise in times when I don´t know
Let this be my prayer, when I lose my way
Lead me to the place, guide me with your grace
To a place where I´ll be safe

A table in the sun

music. music. music...

..it always surprises me. i was listening to a song on itunes and suddenly another song was on. i liked the name of it (A table in the sun). you can analyze it as something just "normal" - everyday life but at the same time there is something more. why a table? why in the sun? is the table a symbol of something stable, standing on four table legs...and the sun is a symbol of something warm, cozy and nice - something you really need in life. no sun. no life. hmm. so i just had to listen to the lyrics and here we go...

A table in the sun is all I want
Just want to slow down and rest my heart
So many tears and so much fear
So much happened in the last two years

No rain, no sorrow, the bad days are over
The sun is shining through
Even November days, too
So much we´ve learned, a whole new world
Thank God I´m saved
I´m still cruising The Seventh Wave

It´s hard to understand, what we´ve been through
I guess we need time - me and you
Oh so many times, I wondered why
It happened to me - this time

A table in the sun and me and you

- Marie Fredriksson -

think i needed to listen to that song. mmm. love these surprising moments.

body language is another thing i have been thinking of today. we had a guest speaker today in class (from the States) and she used body language a lot. i love when people use their bodies while telling you a story. it becomes more dramatic in a good way. i have been told i use my hands a lot while i´m talking and i like it so i´m not gonna stop do that. yay for body language.

i´m a bit jealous. L and her friend are going to the beach house for some days..and i have to be here in Sweden (and it´s really cold outside - it even snowed today) and study. hmpf. but summer soon. yay. i´m gonna be free then. i have to be free then.

going to study some now. movie tonight. yeah.

saturday evening/night thoughts

after spent some time at one of the open late cafés/pubs/restaurants we went home to watch another movie (yes, a lot of movies this weekend - but, we didn´t finish the one last night though). but my point this time was not to write about movies...

we walked in the pretty dark city and it made me think. i like the dark in some ways. all the buildings are looking so different and you get the chance to see part of them, uplighted, that you during daylight may not pay attention to. so the dark let the light take place and lift things up. hmm. and to see the beautiful moon...mmm, and stars if it´s not cloudy or too light. me like. i have always been scared of the dark and evenings (at least the latest years...ugh). but i think i have started to like the dark more and more.

a metaphor to life: it´s hard to see the light in life if it´s always dark or if you don´t let yourself light some things up. but without darkness you never learn to also appreciate the light. you don´t know how real real light can be like. life. i think all my darkness...hmm..learned myself to appreciate life more and more. and when i start to like the darkness it means it´s not too scary anymore. still a little bit scary, but I can handle it better. yeah.

i know the pictures are blurry but at the same time it gives you a possibility to see all the lights in another way.

da schooool

so after two days spending at home, writing and with plenty of coffee drinks..

...i started a new class in school today. last one for this semester!(Social work, Alcohol and drug dependence and misuse).

to sit in these classrooms (instead of the big ones) feels like beeing back in high school..hehe. the sky was so blue...mmm. i was thinking about summer then. it will be a great summer, i think and hope!


hard working..or not.
i really don´t like these kind of pens.
it´s really functional with different colors. but the design...ugh it´s ugly.

so will go to the choir practice tonight..or actually pretty soon (in about an hour), then hang with the gang. woo hoo. want to talk with L too..but soon, hopefully. we´ll see. speaking of L...hmm..made me think of usa and english. I´m gonna take an English class in summer. YAY!

gotta do some school work now. ciao ciao.

hmm.


i am so tired
. it feels like i have been running a marathon twice in a row (even if i have never done that and don´t know exactly how it feels like - but imagine it).

hmm. it just hit me. perhaps i´m physical tired because i´m thinking waaaay too much.

gonna stop do that.
easy to say. hard to live up to.

my body is weird and i´m crazy. a great team.

exciting moments of the day

Ok. So I have been writing on a paper the last two days and I´m so so so bored. BUT I have had some exciting moments during the day. Woo hoo! First..

...the marching band (love the drums!)



then I have been talking some with L in the states...yay!

and the fire alarm went off in the building on the other side of the main street where I live. So the fire truck came..what an adventure!
(No worries. No fire in sight.)

Take my hand and walk with me let me show you what I´m feeling. What´s going on inside of me? Don´t you know you have changed me, don´t you know my wishes all came true? You´re my angel, now I want to do it all for you

 

Because…

…right here, right now nothing is impossible.

But I have to let things be and when the night is cloudy, there will still be a light that shines on me, shine on until tomorrow, let it be.

And if I´m mad, I’m gonna get mad and not hold it inside. When I´m standing at the crossroads, don´t know which path to choose I´m gonna let you come along.

 

´cos there will be mountains that I will have to climb. There will be battles that I will have to fight. But victory or defeat, it´s up to me to decide. But how can I expect to win If I never try?

I just can´t give up now. I´ve come too far from where I started from. Nobody told me the road would be easy and I don´t believe He brought me this far to leave me.

But sometimes I cradle my head in my hands and breathe... just breathe, oh breathe, just breathe and I just lay it all down. Put my face into your neck and let it fall out and I know that I don´t have to be in this world alone, you´ll get there somehow. I will learn to breathe this ugliness I see and I will rise out of my nightminds, and into the light at the end of the fight. In our honesty, together we will rise out of our nightminds and into the light at the end of the fight.

 

So, when I feel like hope is gone I’m gonna look inside and be strong so I´ll finally see the truth. The Shepherd is my soul and I give You full control wherever You may lead I will follow. I have made the choice, to listen to Your voice so wherever You may lead, I will go.

 

And I´m smilin´ and shinin´.

That´s What Friends Are For

And I never thought I´d feel this way
And as far as I´m concerned
I´m glad I got the chance to say
That I do believe I love you

And if I should ever go away
Well, then close your eyes and try to feel
The way we do today
And then if you can remember

Keep smilin´, keep shinin´
Knowin´ you can always count on me, for sure
That´s what friends are for
For good times and bad times
I´ll be on your side forever more
Thats what friends are for

Well, you came and opened me
And now there´s so much more I see
And so by the way I thank you

Whoa, and then for the times when we´re apart
Well, then close your eyes and know
These words are comin´ from my heart
And then if you can remember, oh

Keep smiling, keep shining
Knowing you can always count on me, for sure
That´s what friends are for
In good times, in bad times
I´ll be on your side forever more
Oh, that´s what friends are for

Whoa... oh... oh... keep smilin´, keep shinin´
Knowin´ you can always count on me, for sure
That´s what friends are for
For good times and bad times
I´ll be on your side forever more
That´s what friends are for

Keep smilin´, keep shinin´
Knowin´ you can always count on me, oh, for sure
´Cause I tell you that´s what friends are for
For good times and for bad times
I´ll be on your side forever more
That´s what friends are for (That´s what friends are for)

On me, for sure
That´s what friends are for
Keep smilin´, keep shinin´

nightminds



Just lay it all down.
Put your face into my neck and let it fall out.
I know, I know , I know. I knew before you got home.
This world your´e in now,
it doesn´t have to be alone,
I´ll get there somehow, ´cos
I know I know I know
when, even springtime feels cold.

But I will learn to breathe this ugliness you see
so we can both be there and we can both share the dark.
And in our honesty, together we will rise,
out of our nightminds, and into the light
at the end of the fight...

You were blessed by
a different kind of inner view: it´s all magnified.
The highs will make you fly,
but the lows make you want to die.
And I was once there,
hanging from that very ledge where you are standing.
So I know, I know, I know,
it´s easier to let go.

But I will learn to breathe this ugliness you see,
so we can both be there and we can both share the dark.
And in our honesty, together we will rise out of our nightminds
and into the light at the end of the fight.

...and in our honesty, together we will rise out of our nightminds
and into the light... at the end of their fight...

still staring at the computer and have done that since i woke up this morning. yes, still the paper..it´s pretty hard this time..there are so many books and so many theories and things i want to write about. meh. but i´m learning things which is awesome!

want to play the guitar. want to listen to music. want to watch a movie. want to travel. want summer to come...hmm. but i´m sitting on the couch, writing on my paper (except for right now) and i´m tired of it.

but soon dinner..c is making some.

bla bla blaaaah. [uptaded]

ended up on the couch. listening to some music.
sufjan stevens.

but i like our couch and i like music. so why not? but i want strawberries too. mmm.

[or what i really, really need to do is to write on my paper. meh]

miss my mom´s smoothies. that´s summer. she always makes me some then. i´m a spoiled "kid".

bbq tonight. gonna freeze myself to death. or not, because i want to live. but i think it´s gonna be cold. ok, there was no point. or..think it´s gonna be nice. beer. people. vegetarian food. yes. that´s the way to go. veggie.

gaaah. i´m just telling you all random things you probably not are interested in. but i don´t care right now. mouhaha. i´m feeling crazy today (or more than usual).

and i give thanks to my friend L for introducing me to bluegrass. love it. it makes me smile and it´s like when i´m listening to african music. i can´t stand still. have to dance. think i have been an african before i was born as a swede. but bluegrass...mmm. road trips. usa. wanna go back. i will. memories.


midsummer a la ´86, i think.

by the way. sufjan stevens has a song called jacksonville. that made me think about a conversation i had yesterday. yay.

ok. paper here i come..MEH. or should i colour my hair instead?

[update]

i have been thinking a bit more..

we have a personal entertainer here. it´s a street musician and he´s standing pretty close to our apartment. or i can at least hear him pretty good. like it though. but not when i want to listen to other songs or when the store downstairs is playing "I´m Yours" for the twentysecond time of the day...

it´s a fight between my music, the musician and the store. gaaaah. what a problem.

i´m colouring my hair. gaaah. i´m always writing papers in the last minute. it at least feels like that. i have to trick myself. tell myself THIS is the last day of writing. ok. gotta go and take a shower. bbq soon.

Right Here, Right Now


Take my hand and walk with me
Let me show you what Im feeling
Whats going on inside of me
Dont you know you have changed me
Dont you know my wishes all came true
Youre my angel, now I want to do it all for you

Right here, right now
Nothing is impossible
Right here, right now
Im running on a miracle
Ive seen youre face, I feel your love
and theres nothing I can do
Right here, right now
My heart, my heart belongs to you

Feels like yesterday to me, yeah
When you pass outside my window
How youre vision caught my eye, yeah
Like in only forever
Something made you turn and look at me
In a heartbeat, I knew my destiny

Right here, right now
Nothing is impossible
Right here, right now
Im running on a miracle
Ive seen youre face, I feel your love
and theres nothing I can do
Right here, right now
My heart, my heart belongs to you

For now and for always
Youll be the one I, youll be the one I turn to

Ohhh
Right here (Right now)
(Nothing is impossible)
Right here, right now
Im running on a miracle
Ive seen youre face and I feel your love
and theres nothing I can do
(Right here) Right now
My heart, my heart belongs to you
My heart belongs x2
My heart belongs to you, ohhh
(Im running on a miracle)
Ive seen youre face and I feel your love
and theres nothing I can do
Right here, right now
My heart, my heart belongs to you
My heart belongs to you

like this song...
