Recovery

Hey, it’s Easter holiday and I have got some days off work. I’ve been at 24NT, my internship company for two weeks now and it is both interesting and challenging. Working full time with an injured foot makes me a tired girl though so most of my free time I am sleeping actually. But I guess that’s what my body needs.

Three days ago I was back in Stockholm for a doctors visit and to get rid of my aircast which I had had for 3,5 weeks. So now I am supposed to walk on my foot. It hurts pretty much though but with lots of training I will come back.

While in Stockholm I joined @selanna, his wife Åsa, @rymdapa and @lilashrink at Belgobaren for a dinner. It was a very nice evening with lots of good laughs.

I took the train back to Norrköping at the Good Friday, actually the first trip by train since the accident which felt very good to do. The rest of the Easter Holiday was spent with my parents and their friends. Now I have one more day off before I am back to work at 24NT again.

Internship number three

Next Monday my third internship period will start. This time I am leaving Stockholm(!) for Norrköping to do my internship at 24NT and the social media integrated TV-show 30 minuter. I will be there for ten weeks and I am looking forward to an internship period where I hopefully will learn a lot and have lots of fun.

I already know that I will miss Stockholm though. I always miss Stockholm when I am in Östergötland and when I am in Stockholm I miss my friends in Östergötland.

Oh, and if you wonder how to get an internship with broken bones, try Twitter ;)

July 2009

Life in General:

In July most people are having vacation, but that’s the month when I worked the most.  I lived in Norrköping the entire month and realized that I missed Stockholm.

Friends:

I visited Alice and her parents in Linköping and melted when she fell asleep in my arms. When I went home to Stockholm for just a weekend I met up with Jenny and when we had decided to meet up with Peter and Adam we ended up at a rave party. Odd, I know.

Family:

I lived at my parent’s house the entire month and together with them I went to the castle in Örebro for a family reunion with all descendants of my mother’s grandparents.

Work:

I worked really hard this month at Lagos Mode, both in the store and with the blog, at the expense of my personal blog which wasn’t very updated during July.

Trips:

As written above I made two trips in July, one to my home in Stockholm and one to Örebro.

Mobile shot:

I caught Jenny when she was eating candy at work. Look how guilty she looks ;)

I missed Stockholm in July and went here when I had a weekend off work. I took a walk at Södermalm where I also took some photos.

June 2009

Life in General:

June was the month when I packed seven bags to go to Norrköping and live at my parents place for the summer, while being there I realized that I am a real stockholmer since I missed Stockholm a lot. I also turned 27  and celebrated my birthday in the garden with my family and the day after with my friends in Ljungsbro.

Friends:

At our national day 6th of June it was time for a new party at Lidingö together with Lorraine, Sanna, Susanna, Jenny and Elisabeth. Great fun but what happens on the island, stays on the island.

I celebrated the Midsummer holiday at Björn and Josefin‘s place, Bondhälla. Probably the best midsummer holiday I have ever had.

25th of June Stefan and Pernilla got a daughter. A really cute girl, called Alice. She is the closest child I know and I really like to play and cuddle with her. And since she is the first child among the closest friends, she is really spoiled.

Two days after Alice was born it was time to celebrate mine and Andreas birthday at Anna and Andreas house in Ljungsbro. It was a nice party with a lot of nice people.

Family:

My brother visited me for the first time since I moved to Stockholm at the national day. It was a really short visit though since we had separated plans for the evening.

School:

My first year at Medieinstitutet ended in the beginning of June with a really nice lecture by Teo Härén about creativity. I also received a lot of praise from my teacher in journalism which made me re-think about my future.

Work:

In June I went back to work at Lagos Mode in Norrköping. I enjoyed working again and meeting old and new customers. I also ran around with my camera and photographed my co-workers for the summer blog. In the beginning of the month I also worked as a presider at the election for the EU parliament.

Social Media:

In June I started to use social media at work for the first time when I set up the summer blog at Lagos Mode. I really enjoyed working with the blog and I learned a lot meanwhile.

Trips:

As soon as the spring term was over Elisabeth and I went to Barcelona to get some sun and nice shopping. We had really fun together in Spain. I miss you and your crazy antics Elisabeth.

After I had “moved” to Norrköping for the summer I also made a trip to Vimmerby for a meeting with the big boss, Mr S. On the way there I also visited Sandströms in Vimmerby and Kisa.

Society:

The Pirate Party got over 7 percent of the swedish votes in the election for the EU parliament and Michael Jackson died and was mourned by a whole world.

Boardgames:

Andreas and Anna gave me Chez Goth as a birthday present. It’s a shame I haven’t played it yet but I brought it to Stockholm and I haven’t found any boardgame partners there.

My summer weekend in Stockholm

When I came to Stockholm and my apartment Friday evening I was pretty tired after a hard week at work so I was just chilling at home. I woke up pretty early Saturday morning and went to a nature reserve close to where I live. It’s called Judarskogen and there is a lake called Judarn. It was wonderful to be in the nature and I took a lot of photos. Here is one of them.

When I came back home I took a shower and went to Södermalm where I had lunch before I took a walk at what we call Söders höjder. From the hills I photographed some of  the beautiful views of Stockholm.

After my walk at Södermalm I walked over Skeppsbron to Kungsträdgården and Gallerian where I bought ice-cream at the best ice-cream shop in Stockholm called Montis. While eating the ice cream Jenny called me up and said that Peter and Adam where at a party at Långholmen and asked me if I wanted to join with her. Said and done, I went home to eat something and get ready for some party.

When Jenny and I arrived it appeared to be a rave party. I have never been to a rave party before so that was a new experience for me but it was fun and the atmosphere was wonderful. To bad it started to rain later in the evening so we went home pretty early. I didn’t bring my camera so sadly I have no pictures from the party. I should have taken some pictures with my cellphone but I just didn’t think of it while I was there

Today I have been cleaning and fixing to make my apartment look nice when my parents come here. They will stay here for a night when they are visiting Stockholm in a few weeks. Soon I am taking the train back to Norrköping and will stay there for another month. It was wonderful to be back in Stockholm and it was great to see Jenny, Peter and Adam again.

I didn’t know I was a stockholmer

I’ve always been told that if I move to Stockholm I will never move back.  To some extent I have agreed with that but mostly because I don’t want to live in my hometown. Not because I have thought that Stockholm will catch me forever.  Now it is 8 months since I moved and these months have been hovering between hope and despair. The first three months I was longing for my friends in Linköping so much that I couldn’t enjoy Stockholm at all. I still miss them from time to time because together with them I feel like I’m home. But later, during the spring Stockholm has got another taste in my mouth, a taste that actually is good and I have started to like it. Stockholm has begun to feel like a home, thus, not said that I can’t have more than one home.

So, now when I went to my hometown to work during the summer I didn’t really think that I would miss Stockholm that much. I have said that it is a pity that I am leaving when Stockholm is at its prime but not that I would miss our capital city. Last week I have come to understand that I do. I miss Stockholm. But on friday I am going home. Just for the weekend though but still. I am going home to Stockholm.

Reality Revisited

Today I was at Moderna Museet to visit a photo exhibition called Reality Revisited together with some people from school. There were a lot of photographs especially from the 70s, most of them by famous photographers from Sweden or the USA. The series by Larry Clark made the biggest impression on me.  Some of his pictures really aroused strong feelings inside. I can really recommend this exhibition,  if you are interested in photo it’s well worth a visit. It will be open until September.
