a Sweltering Summer

I came naked out of the shower when I noticed; the first rays of summer-sun shone onto my bed. As if they were a blanket, I crawled underneath them and let their gentle warmth caress my body. This body which had yearned for their touch throughout a winter’s eternity. As she spread her energy allContinue reading “a Sweltering Summer”

Party in the Park

Nils and I traveled home from Sk√•ne to attend Ash’s and Veronica’s massive messer. We were so hyped that we even ditched our parents meeting each other for the first time… Not good, but it was for a good cause ūüėČ The party started during the day and continued till’ late. Nima was well-dressed perContinue reading “Party in the Park”

Involuntary Models

These kindred spirits have been my models since I bought my first DSLR as a 14 year old. Hence, throughout the years, I’ve collected numerous of moments, starring them as the main characters. Thank you mamma, pappa, Jessica & Jacob (a tad reluctant at first, but he loosened up) for letting me shove lenses extremelyContinue reading “Involuntary Models”

Shenanigan’s in the South of Sweden

Where white beaches live and tiny beach-cottages are situated, I feel at home. My family and I travel to Falsterbo/Skan√∂r in Sk√•ne every year and for the two past years Magnus, my sister’s boyfriend, and Nils have joined too, which adds to it even more. Nils and I have been a couple for more thanContinue reading “Shenanigan’s in the South of Sweden”

Our Hyper Island Graduation

Between the 14th to 16th of June we had our graduation. It started off on Wednesday with a reunion-breakfast. It was nuts seeing everyone again after 7 months apart. I was nervous, completely overly excited and of course, very happy. We did our internship-presentations and Chris’s and mine made people laugh a lot = success!Continue reading “Our Hyper Island Graduation”

“His and Hers” The Backpack Version

Nils and I are backpack-people but backpacks tend to take up a lot of space when they’re just lying around somewhere, especially when you live on 36sqm. That’s why we came up with the REVOLUTIONARY idea to hang them on the wall – which became really cute. Many of my friends have said “AW THAT’SContinue reading ““His and Hers” The Backpack Version”

Freedom on a bike

I’ve been to Italy, in Padergnone. I biked there. Surrounded by mountains, fluffy trees sprinkled in green, lakes of emerald green, we flew forward. At least it felt like it. A sensation of freedom, one that got me all happy-tears-eyed. I looked at my father and brother biking before me and I, as I oftenContinue reading “Freedom on a bike”

36 Squeeze Meter Party

Last weekend Nils and I threw a moving-in party, which I named, cleverly, (if I may say so myself) “36 Squeeze Meter Party”. We had around 40 people here and the night was a blast. Some friends brought a smoke machine which altered the experience and turned our apt into a club. In the midstContinue reading “36 Squeeze Meter Party”

Fun Friends and Urban Burners

These past couple days have been amazing, despite feeling completely blue Sat-Wednesday. But then on Wednesday a bunch of my friends, from all different kind of circles, met up at Carmen. We said goodbye to one Indian who’s going to Amsterdam and Hi to our long lost friends that have been back in India forContinue reading “Fun Friends and Urban Burners”

Stockholm Charades

Summer flies to foreign countries the spirits of autumn settle in People, kissed by a healing wind waiting for the harsh winter to begin as the sun enters hibernation Swedes work on their winter accusations but in their minds live warm memories of Summer fragments that will keep them together

A quiet Sunday

Sharing the sofa with Zampa, music flowing around me and the cold weather is intrusive from the outside. Mamma was here a minute ago and we shared a coffee and caught up. Absolutely love living in walking distance from all of my family. My mental state is a bit fuzzy because Johanna and I hadContinue reading “A quiet Sunday”

Merry Christmas

It’s christmas morning and Nils just left for work. I’m drinking coffee in bed, listening to my new Dali-Katch loudspeaker which I just got from Nils. He’s taught me to appreciate good sound and now I feel like just sitting here all day, “Dali-Katch¬†and chill”. The sound is so clear.¬† I’ve been so eager toContinue reading “Merry Christmas”

19 drafts in my pocket

I’ve 19 drafts lying around in this blog, 9 of which were created this week. I can’t seem to find my words, nor my language, nor my inspiration or flow. Perhaps I’m encumbered with self-doubt or some other human annoyance. Last night, Chris and I went on christmas-holiday. We celebrated our first month working togetherContinue reading “19 drafts in my pocket”

Halloween 2016

Nils threw a great halloween-party a couple of weeks back. Trump was there (of course), Kim & Kanye, King and Queen of chess (Nils and I that is), Draco Malfoy, on top of that Britney Spears & Justin Timberlake came all the way from the 90’s! Since we were king and queen of chess IContinue reading “Halloween 2016”

Years on earth: 23

Today is my birthday. I’ve now been an earthling for 23 years and I must say, it’s very neat to be alive despite all the¬†inexplicable¬†things that are happening in the world. I had a birthday-dinner last Saturday which turned out to be a really fun and sweet evening. I know nothing that’s better than havingContinue reading “Years on earth: 23”

Running our own bizniz

I’m going to be that Swede now, nagging about the weather. BUT JEEEZ?! I don’t think the sun rose today, it’s been raining continuously since 8AM, it’s dark outside and it’s 3.35pm, remind me again of why I live here? My week has been absurdly calm. My partner in crime is ill so we haven’tContinue reading “Running our own bizniz”

Nature, a Double-Edged Sword

She lures you in, seduces you with brisk air and long-sought-after golden rays¬†of sun. She sprinkles the streets in leaves which hold all spectrums of colors, she hypnotizes you. Making one believe¬†that life is a walk in a magical park where nothing evil can happen. She shows off all her best sides, fooling you intoContinue reading “Nature, a Double-Edged Sword”

Long time no see

Been up in my head lately and haven’t been able to put words to my thoughts, but I’m thinking I’m done with that now. Sick of thinking, better start doing instead. Hence I’m back here in my little digital home. These past weeks I’ve been partying a lot, held our final presentation on our finalContinue reading “Long time no see”

Summer Memories & the complexity of memory

Summers tend to appear blurry, days vaporize into each other and create fuzzy memories. When did I do what? What happened when? Who was I with? ¬†Thank you Steve Jobs for creating the smartphone so I can document whatever I want to in a jiffy and remember. Speaking of this, I wonder if I, dueContinue reading “Summer Memories & the complexity of memory”

The Four-legged Ones

I’ve stumbled upon a bunch of cute animals lately, here’s an excerpt from the encounters. This is Mila, named after Mila Kunis, she belongs to Nils mother and sister. What a stunner eh? These summer-cats had it great compared to all the summer-cats here in Sweden that are bought by families, brought out to theirContinue reading “The Four-legged Ones”

A wonderful place called Sk√§ret

Last week was spent at Sk√§ret, Sk√•ne, with Nils family. I was excited and a tad skittish about hanging out with his family for the first time, but it all went fine without any major disasters. They took me on tours around the surroundings in his fathers Jaguar Mark ¬†II from 1960-something, which was theContinue reading “A wonderful place called Sk√§ret”

Midsummer Madness

Arabo had been planning our midsummer feast for a whole week and when Midsummer’s day came, he, Pako and Sonja rolled into my kitchen with SO MUCH FOOD! The rest of the crew came at 4 and so we started eating + drinking en masse… ūüėČ Nils was game-leader and we played burnball, catching applesContinue reading “Midsummer Madness”

Mama’s Birthday

Two weeks back I had quite the party-week. It started off with a club-night with A and A, and the day after all of the fam + extended fam met up at Strandbryggan for lunch and celebrated mamma’s 54th birthday. The week then continued with a night at V’s (previous post), a rave on FridayContinue reading “Mama’s Birthday”

A magical night at Veronica’s

My friend Veronica hosted a dinner at her parents house at the most lush, serene, beautiful location. I was filled with joy over friends, jumping on a trampoline, the weather and all the other feelings that come with summer. Here are some memories from those 18h.   At random times half of the crew disappearedContinue reading “A magical night at Veronica’s”

I believe I’m living a dream

These summer-days are very dreamy. Not because the weather is good, because it ain’t. but because I get to hang out with friends at great locations, spend time with my family and kiss my boyfriend whenever I want to. I’m lagging behind in my very important blogging about my life, because life is running soContinue reading “I believe I’m living a dream”

Summer Indulgence

I’ve spent today in hangover heaven (read: hell). Had almost all of my girls here last night and we ate, drank wine and cackled away. Around 11 Anna and I headed to Karusell with another friend and danced away like maniacs, without inhibitions. When they closed we headed of to F12 and negotiated with theContinue reading “Summer Indulgence”

Hotel J with J and N

He told me not to book anything in¬†on¬†the 12th of June and let me live in oblivion till’ five days before when he¬†revealed that we were going on a staycation in Nacka. Met him up by Dramaten, with butterflies in my belly and was stoked about going on a mini-adventure. We took the boat outContinue reading “Hotel J with J and N”

Play Seriously

I had my assessment today and it bugged me, it made me feel inadequate and wrong, lost and unintelligible. Haunted by the feeling of always doing too little, never enough. I structure a routine to fit everything in, ending up with a breakdown and smeary tears. When is “it’s enough” and “how active can oneContinue reading “Play Seriously”

Destruct to reconstruct

This headline could have been the beginning to one of my highly acclaimed poems but nah ūüėČ It’s all about the moving-in chaos that I currently live in. BUT, my bed is here, the sofa arrived today (currently sitting in it m m m), school’s out on Friday and summer is here! Life is friggin’Continue reading “Destruct to reconstruct”
