December 2009

Phew, time for the very last blog post in this summary of 2009. It’s been boring, probably even more boring for you. Next year I’ll do it in another format. Promise.

Life in General:

December was a month I don’t want to experience again. Some days I was frustrated and angry, some days I was sad, some days I was happy but I don’t remember those days…


I celebrated minichristmas at Pernilla’s, Stefan’s and Alice’s house together with Anna, Andreas and Tobias. We ate good food (not Christmas food) and had a nice evening together. One week later I celebrated New Years Eve in the same house with the same people, plus Jenny. A nice evening as always with my friends in Linköping.


The 28th of December was the last time I met my grandfather Bernth on this earth. He slept while I was there but when I was about to leave and realised that I had forgot to say good bye I ran back to his bed, grabbed his hand and said “Good bye grandpa”.

My family tried to celebrate Christmas as we always do, but it wasn’t like any other year. After spending the whole day by my grandfathers bed we went home in the evening. But we were all thinking of the only one who weren’t with us when we ate the Christmas food and handed out the gifts. It was all done in about two hours.


I wrote a blog post about how I felt about living a journalist life.


Interviews, interviews, interviews.. and a lot of writing in vain.


I worked at Lagos Mode one day in December, or not even one days, I think I worked for about three hours. It was the first day on the sale, the 26th of December.

Social Media:

I won the autumn competition at skyltat.se and got a Nokia 5800 Xpress Music which my brother is the happy owner of today.

I had a down period in this blog and just published five blog posts. I was probably out of words…


I made one weekend-trip to Östergötland in the beginning of the month but the day before Christmas Eve I went there and stayed for the rest of the month.


I bought my lovely iPhone 3GS 32 GB. Probably the best thing I have ever bought.


I actually got 6 movies from Marcus and CC for Christmas. The Lord of the rings trilogy and the Beck 21-24 box.

I forgot my camera at home when I went to Östergötland for Christmas and I hate myself for that. No photo of the month. I suck.

I won, you lost

With that cocky title, I would like to tell you that I won the competition at Skyltat.se.

A lot of things have happened during the contest. My entry went up in the lead pretty fast after it was published. After a few days it got so many visitors that Skyltat was brought down by their web hosting provider. Later on, my classmate Lorraine and I realized that we were ranked as number one and two in the contest. We fought hard to get our friends to vote for our entries which was a really fun part of the contest. Although, the latest week I have been the number one by far but then some days ago a new opponent showed up and came closer.

The night before the competition was going to end my top entry got voted down from 8,9 to 7,4 just over the night. I understood that someone was using methods that weren’t allowed and I was about to give up. Then I saw that the precursor of the outvoted entry had suddenly made it to the second place so I posted the link to it on Facebook and Twitter and told my friends and followers that I was a victim of cheating. People was sympathizing with me and even though it was really close I passed the leader a few hours before the contest was over.

I would now like to thank you all for voting in this competition. I am soon a proud owner of a Nokia 5800 XpressMusic and what is gonna happen with that phone is still a little secret.

If my cute neighbours for some reason would happen to read this I would also like to thank them, without their love story I would never have been a part of this contest.

My entry - the love story about my neighbours.

On the home straight

It’s just about 24 hours left until the kompetition at Skyltat.se is over. I am still in the lead but I am not superior so if you haven’t, please vote 10 stars for me.

I’m fighting

I am in the lead in the competition at skyltat.se with the notice that was put up in the house where I live. Although I am closely followed by my classmate Lorraine and her Original Gangsta shit and now she has decided to try to beat me. That’s why I need your help. Vote ten stars for my entry and I will hopefully win a Nokia 5800 XpressMusic. If I am still in the lead at December 4th I will win the cellphone. So vote for me please!

Love in the house

To bad I am not involved. But some of my neighbours are.

I thought this story (swedish) was kinda funny so I sent it to Skyltat.se. Feel free to vote for it or push it. There is a sequel to the story, so keep your eyes open.

Here we go


The picture is from 2000 when I was in Riga, Latvia. Superkram is super hug in Swedish, but I have no clue about what it means in Latvian.

Skyltat (Swedish humor)

Skyltat.se is a Swedish site with photos of funny signs, which sometimes can be very entertaining. This week I have contributed with two photos to the site.

In the entrance to the house where I am living there is a notice board. I found a notice there last week which made me smile a bit.

When I lived in Sundsvall there was a little flower shop in my neighbourhood. They used to have this sign outside. That picture is at least 6 years old but it wouldn’t surprise me if they still use it.
