Two nice weeks

Two weeks have passed since I blogged the last time. I’ve had much to do at my job, but also had a lot of fun.


Valentine’s Day was celebrated with four of us singles, with dinner and movie. We saw a new Swedish comedy, which was actually very funny.


Thursday we went to the pub quiz again.  We didn’t get on the podium this time, but we ended up in fourth place.


Saturday I was at a dance competition. The dance club in Halmstad, where Katta is one of the coaches, attended a competition in Varberg. We were a big group of people who went there. Afterwards we had a Melodifestival-party/dinner at Mårtenssons night club. Nice songs in the Melodifestivalen completion, nice food and nice party.


The weather is very changeing now. Cold one day, nice the other, and then cold again. Yesteday, Sunday, was one of the bette days, and I took a walk on the beach.

Yesterday was the Academy Awards. It’s differnet here in Sweden, since it goes on in the middle of the night. But we made a big thing about it, and dressed up fancy, had a nice dinner, champagne, cheese and crackers and snacks. It was a really good night, but we hadn’t seen that many of the nominated movies.


Speaking of artistic movies, right now Ingemar Bergman’s The Seventh Seal is on tv. I’m skeptical.

Awesome weekend!

This has been a truly amazing weekend. I’ve been busy all the time. It was my first four-day weekend in a long time, which was really sweet.


Thursday we were a gang who went to the pub Fox % Anchor and ate and played the quiz. It went well, and we ended up in second place.


Friday I had an unsuspected visit from America. Gerodie from The Channels wrote on Facebook last week asking if there were someone she knew in Halmstad. Very random for an American, kinda. But she was on a trip in Europe, so Friday she stayed by here and we had dinner and sat and talked and drank wine.


Saturday was Caroline’s day. She came down from Gothenburg and we celebrated her birthday with drinks, an amazing dinner at Gaston’s and a long and fun party with dancing at Mårtensons. Everything in fancy clothing, and a snowfall.

Me and Andreas, very fance

Sunday we made fish casserole and watched the new TV show, the Swedish version of The Office. It was very similar in style, so very funny, and very uneasy to watch.



Last time I wrote about Super Bowl. It went the right way, with the Giants winning after a weird touchdown.

It’s also going very well for the Rangers. They are in the lead in Eastern Conference by seven points. It looks like it’s gonna be a great season. I have never seen them play as good as now, and Henrik Lundqvist has never been better.


It's going well now :)

Birthday, Melodifestivalen, USA and Super Bowl

There’s a lot of things going on now, especially this week. So I decided to gather all of it in one blog post, instead of multiple during the week.


Thursday was my birthday. For the first time in very many years I celebrated it in Getinge. It wasa a calm day where I could sleep in in the morning and then had coffee and cake with the neighbors. I also got many birthday greetings on Faceook, and that was nice.


Less calm was the Saturday. I celebrated both my birthday and my new apartment by having a party. I made jello shots, but they were to hard and tough to get out of the glass, and we had to eat them with a spoon. But they were still tasty.


Jello shots!


Beer pong!

Then we played beerpong. That was vey much fun, and later in the evening we went to a club downtown. Before that we watched Melodifestivalen.


That is a music competition, and the most watched series every year. It’s Sweden’s pick for represent in Eurovision Song Contest.

The best song yesterday was unfortunate a childish comedy rapper, Sean Banan (banana), with a super catchy, silly song. All day today I have had the same line stuck in my head: ”Dinge dinge dinge ding-ding-ding – här glider kingen in” (here the king comes in). so annoying!

He got to the semifinal; but the songs that went straight to the final was also good.


Sean Banan!


I have booked my trip to America! Finally I’ll come back to the beautiful California. My first stop will be NorCal, where I will visit Lauren and others. I will be there for her birthday, and later we are gonna celebrate her birthday in Las Vegas too. In between, I will be in Santa Barbara and enjoy life. Oh, I’m longing so much!


Soon! <3


And also, Lauren have booked tickets and she will come visit Sweden this summer. Yay!


Speaking of America, Super Bowl is on right now. In the second quarter, Gianst are leading over the Patriots, 9-3. Go Giants!
