I pet a snake and a spider

Skansen, Stockholm

Tom and I went to Skansen last weekend. We went in the aquarium and saw tropical animals like little monkeys, parrots and lizards. Once we’d made our way through the whole aquarium we approached two open glass bowls, one with a snake in it, and one with a spider in it. A big furry brown spider. And a big slithering brown snake. I’m not really a fan of either. They kind of creep me out. But I’ll have you know that I pet both of them! Checked that fear off my bucket list.

Good times


dat sparkle

Another ridic good weekend! Allow me to sum it up for you:

  • Sunshine and clear blue skies all weekend.
  • Great meeting on Saturday with a client I’m building a website for.
  • Met up with B on Saturday afternoon and ended up having a couple of beers, which resulted in a bit tipsy. And then we went grocery shopping… How is it that I always end up with that odd combination of activities when I meet B? Haha, good times.
  • Started Sunday morning with a long power walk, a killer gym workout, and rounded things off by going for a run like some crazy mad woman on speed.
  • My aforementioned exercise gave me the endorphins to super successfully knock one thing after the other off my to do-list. Ah yes.
  • My brother texted that he’s back from NYC! Getting to see him tomorrow evening.
  • Got an email today about an exciting meeting next week.
  • Oh, and you know those little text messages that make you smile. That.

Right, going to get some studying done and then hopping out to meet J for some much needed catching up. Oh, and guess what? The sun is shining today too!

Ciao amigos,

A public holiday well spent


I love public holidays that fall in the middle of the week. I spent the entire day yesterday in a park in the centre of town with happy endorphins from my workout, the sunshine, and clear blue skies pulsating through my body. We popped into Vurma for lunch, and then went back to rolling around on the grass enjoying the sun. My cheeks were pretty warm by the end of the day.

Dinner with J was postponed to next week, so I whipped up a dinner for one and then got the urge to go for a run. Said and done, I went for a nice 8km run as the sun set in front, behind, and above me.  I even bumped into a little deer that was so calm I probably could have reached out and touched it.

Right, back to work now!

First of may 2013


So just like that. It’s May. And summer is just around the corner. And it’s exactly one month until I’m done with my second year at Uni. And one month until I have one year left to completing my degree.

But that’s all in the future right now.

Today, it’s Wednesday and my project group and I have given ourselves a day off (it’s a holiday in Sweden today). So I’m going to the gym. And I’ve got really hot new gym shoes. And this afternoon I’m meeting a friend. And this evening I’m meeting J for dinner. And it’s sunny outside. And there’s this nervous excited feeling in the air. In me. I love that anything could happen on this particular sunny 1st of May Wednesday.

Brace yourselves, this is a bunch of random

Oh hi.
Haven’t blogged in a while. So this is a compilation of a bunch of good things. Like music, movies, quotes, and photos.

Here’s a sick cover:

Wildfire // JENI // SBTRKT ft. Drake & Little Dragon


Expectation is the root of all heartache. – Shakespeare


Good movie lately: The Silver Linings Playbook


Spring is (sort of) here. Logically, that means summer is just around the corner. Which makes being spontaneous and a little crazy so much easier. Like skinny dipping at 11.23pm.


– You wanna hear a joke?
– Sure.
– The way you treat me.

Good music lately:
James Blake {Retrograde}
Sbtrkt {Right thing to do ft. Jessie Ware}
Majestee of Sweden {Govenor}
Gnucci {Oh My Goodness!}
Hurts {Blind – live from Spotify Stockholm is the best version}
Rudimental {Powerless ft. Becky Hill}
Passenger {Let her go}
Maria Mena {Fuck you}
Mikky Ekko {Who are you, really?}


Also, I need a nickname. Hit me with your suggestions.

I’m so very happy right now

Life is such a beautiful, beautiful thing.
