Last day of the winter break

I have had so many wonderful days since I got here. So nice to have the days off, but now that has to come to an end. Tomorrow is the first day of my presumable last semester ever. It will be nice to start.

This week there has been some parties, but mostly just chill. Today I have been out on a long walk. I was at a beach I don’t know the name of, but there are big cliffs all along the way. If you climb some small rocks you come to another beach that looks the same and is a dog beach. I was there in August with Lauren and Elyse.


Here is where I took my long walk today.


Now is also the last day that I’m alone in the apartment. Tonight Nima and Ola will come back. I will go and pick them up later.

Rangers played a really entertaining game yesterday in Atlanta. The Norwegian Mats Zucarello saved the day with his penalty shot goal.

Now I’m having some tuna salad and then I maybe watch a movie or something. Good ending of two wonderful weeks of vacation.


This is how it looked outside my house just a couple of minutes ago.

Wonderful days – epic nights

What can I say? I’m having the time of my life. To come early before school starts was a very good decision. The weather is so lovely so during the day you can be out in the sun and just walk around and feel good. And also go lay down at the beach trying to get some sort of tan. I have also got a good start of the running too. I have my old track along the beach, about 5,5 miles. But I have to start going to the gym soon. But so far I’m keeping my New Year’s resolution of having some sort of work out at least five times a week.

We have also had our first edboard meeting with The Channels. It’s gonna be a nice semester I think. I will basically have three tasks:

  • Assistant News Editor. Help Kyle as much as I can and cover some areas, like the Academic Senate again.
  • Online Editor. Be in charge of the web edition.
  • Managing editor. Make sure that everything is done properly and also do the “budget”. It is the list of articles, photos and everything that is to be done for each issue, as well as information about length, contacts, who does what and so on. It is basically just copying and pasting from what the editors have done on the Wednesday. It’s not hard, just a bit time consuming.

Monday is the school start. It’s gonna be sweet.


A couple of nights this week has been epic party nights at my place. Lauren’s boyfriend Kyle has been here visiting, so Monday we thought about going out. Us, plus Paige, started prepartying at my place, since I’m the only one that is here right now. But we never went out; we just had a long funny preparty.

Now has Cecily arrived here too, so yesterday we thought about going out again. Preparty at my place. But we soon decided that we weren’t going out that night either, cause we had so much fun at home that we wanted to continue all night. And so we did. We had so much fun, and it’s so nice to hang out with my lovely friends again.


Patrick Seastar was also here, here surrounded by his girls Paige, Cecily and Lauren.


I’m feeling so good right now. The life couldn’t be better. Great town, lovely weather, fun days and just totally amazing friends. I love life so much right now.

Back in the heat

Apparently I forgot to write one more post before I left. So here it comes instead.

The last days in Sweden I was so busy with a nice birthday party for Tina in Alingsås and then finally meet Elin, Anna and Daniel in Gothenburg. Then a lot of packing in Getinge before it was time to leave.


The trip went really well. No problem on the trip Gothenburg – London – Los Angeles – Santa Barbara (last leg by bus). Everything was on time, and I slept the times I had planned. On the LA flight I saw two good movies. Toy Story 3 and The Social Network, about the founding of Facebook. Both movies I recommend strongly.

Lauren came and picked me up at the hotel where the bus stopped, but that night all I could do was to go home and go to bed. Instead I met up with Lauren Thursday morning and we had brunch and talked for a long time. I also had time to do a lot of things that day. Fixed my phone, went to the bank, got a haircut, went grocery shopping like crazy and had this year’s first jog at the beach. It was really nice, but also very hard, so I could really see that I haven’t worked out at all during the break. So now I have to work out somehow every day until school starts. Afterwards I watched the game NY Rangers – Vancouver, where Rangers won a great victory with 1-0 against the league leaders.

In the evening I had dinner with Anna, and tonight we are probably going out with some other people. Today I had a long walk and soon I’m going out to run again.


The weather here is amazing. Yes, I’m sorry, people in Scandinavia, but I have to say it. It is shining sun, in the 70s and just wonderful. It already feels like the weather this spring will be better than last year.


Now it’s all vacation until Wednesday when school starts. Or, actually it starts the 24th, but Wednesday is our first meeting with the ed-board for the school newspaper.

And btw, I talked to my internship today. It’s now set; I will be there this spring. All that’s left to do is now to provide some paper works from school before I start there.


I promise to try to blog more than during the break, and I will provide more photos too.

Cecily was here!

For one week I have had a very nice visit. Cecily has been over from America to experience Sweden. We have had a fully packed schedule the whole time, with so much to do and see. We have been around Halmstad and Getinge, went shopping, swam at the bath house and had a great time.


We celebrated New Year’s in Halmstad with Anton, Ida, Winberg and Daniel. Very much fun. Then we also went up to Stockholm a couple of days. We were touristing a lot and visited the Vasa Museum, Skansen, the Old Town and a lot of other places. We had a private tour of the Parliament from Jenny. And we partied a bit too =) We stayed with Ola in Bromma, so it was nice to see him too.


Now I’m heading for Alingsås to celebrate Tina’s birthday, then I’m gonna meet Elin, Anna and Daniel in Gothenburg tomorrow.


It is cold in Sweden, and it’s gonna be nice to come back to Cali. I’m laving Wednesday. I think I will blog one more time before then, now that I have time since I’m not a Swedish tour guide anymore.
