I don’t know where time went. On a vacation to Aruba? I would like to go to Aruba. Lie on a beach, drink straight from a coconut and just be. Actually anywhere would be nice, vacations are always nice. 

Okay, reality. 

I’ve started my new job, it’s been a month soon already. So far I’m liking it. A lot. Working in my community, my parish, with people I know is great. Networking and getting to know people is marvellous. Sure there are things that are slightly stressful, but in what line of work do you never encounter stress? 

And everyone’s very keen on me feeling up to the task and not taking on too much stuff. I know that if I were to say I felt overwhelmed they’d step in and help me with everything. 

Lovely people. 

We went on a trip to Uppsala this week (Monday to Wednesday and chock-a-block full of sightseeing). 

Although we did have a few hours free on Tuesday afternoon and I got to hang out with my mate Rikard, who I had only chatted with online (is it 2 years or more? I can’t remember) but since I was in the vicinity we decided to meet. 

I had a grand old time, he was just as darling as I hoped he would be. Not that I had any fears he’d be anything but. It was nice to hang out with someone who likes the same things, comics and books and stuff. 

My colleagues aren’t as nerdy as I am, so I haven’t really found anyone to talk to about ALL GREAT THINGS IN LIFE. Which is slightly sad (I miss Amanda and Fredrik from my old job, they got me). 

Anyhow, supper’s ready and I think we still have cheese puffs somewhere.

Oh well, I knew stitches would suck, but I had kinda forgotten how bad they actually DO suck… 
I’ve had trouble driving (even riding in the car has hurt like a mother) so I had to take Monday off from work. This means I have to work longer days Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. 

And it’s not as if I have TONS of stuff to do, lots of the things needing doing are for next term and I won’t really be there then, will I? 

Tomorrow morning I do have a bit of stuff to do, I’m taking A to have a look see at books and things for the preschool group she’s taking over from me (I’m so totally going to miss her so much! She’s awesome and funny and kind and a lot like me, but 13 years younger). I love you A! 

We’re going out on Friday, five of us from work, and I’m trying to think of what to wear. I’ll still have my stitches so that kinda limits what I have to choose from. Also, this restricts my choice of footwear… I’d love to wear heals, but no way I can manage that right now. 

I’ll most likely end up in jeans and a tee (dare I break out the flannel?) and my Doc’s. Guess I’ll just have to glam my face up or something. 

Anyhow, it seems impossible to get to the UK to see Goo Goo Dolls. Expensive as phukk. My life sucks.

I have a few things I’d love to do in April.

First I’d love to go see The 1975 in Stockholm April 6th (no, working and there’s no one to cover for me), second I’d love to go down to Gothenburg for the day (just walk around, people watching) and third I’d love for someone to make me the most chocolaty birthday cake (I’ll end up having to make it myself).

Before we even get to April there’s Easter. I’m working tomorrow (Sunday) and the day after (bus trip with kids from work), but then I  have seven days off.
I’ve promised the horde the baking of cakes, the watching of films, for eldest to have her ears pierced, for them all to get their hair cut and for us to eat All The Easter Sweets.

So much to do, all of it/most of it only fun things.

At the moment I’m playing The 1975’s new album “I like it when you sleep for you are so beautiful yet so unaware of it” on repeat, it’s like they have a song for every occasion.
I’d like to just disappear into the music and not resurface until some time in June. It’s almost as if my heartbeats are in sync with their songs.

Work wise it’s a lot the coming two months. Sleepovers and prepping end of term celebrations and making sure my Confirmation youth group get their act together for Confirmation.
I think I have one free weekend in April and the same goes for May. On the other hand June is much slower, but at the moment I can’t appreciate the fact.

There are a few jobs out near where I live and I’m going to apply to them. I’d like to think I’m interesting enough for them to ask me to come for an interview, but on the other hand I don’t have a degree in anything and this makes me doubt myself. I have so many uni courses under my belt and work experience, but is that enough?
If I get to an interview I know I’ll be able to talk about myself well enough, and I like to think I’m a likable person. So that’s nothing I’m worried about. It’s presenting myself on paper, trying to make myself interesting enough for them to actually ask me to come for an interview that’s the scary part.

Anyhow, my writing has been frequent the last few weeks. I’ve completed several short stories and poems, in both Swedish and English and I still feel that there’s stuff left to write about. An awesome feeling after the big nothing I felt earlier this year. More tea I think and more The 1975 and more writing.

Honestly. Is there anything better than books? Anything at all? (No, no there isn’t.)

If I could I’d read for most of the day and spend the rest of my time at libraries and bookstores.

Imagine walking into a place of books (heaven) and there on a shelf you see it. Maybe it’s the colour, the title, the author’s name, maybe it’s all three or none of them… but you reach out and pick the book up.

The weight of it, the feel of rippling through its pages, the smell of a new book (or if you’re in a second hand shop or a library, the smell of an old book). All those (by you) unread words. All the adventure waiting for you inside the pages of this wonderful thing.

Today I spent almost one hour in the library, reading a book I’ve already read serval times. It was the best.

I also have Kindle and read so many books on my phone and laptop, but to me there’s nothing better than getting to hold a book in my hands and experience the magic of reading.

Anyhow, we need more bookshelves at home, there’s not enough room to keep them all… and I know I’ll soon bring home new ones. I always do.

I’ve now had 4 weeks of summer holiday and if it hasn’t been raining it’s been cloudy and windy. I can’t say I’m very impressed by Swedish summer this year…

Apparently the warmth and sunshine is to come next week, but excuse me for not holding my breath.

Since this was hub’s last week of holiday I had planned to go do a few small  day trips, visiting friends and getting some me time.

Unfortunately Lady Luck hasn’t been on my or my friends side, my date yesterday injured her back and my date today had not slept at all, thus being too tired to go anywhere (it’s almost like a conspiracy, someone doesn’t want me to meet my friends!).

I’m really happy I have the interwebz though, at least my online friends have been easy to get a hold of (shoutout to my interwbz bffs, love you!).

But really… isn’t it time we invented a teleportation device to use to travel to friends living far off? I’d sure pay monies to use such a device.

On a happier note, I’ve finished my short story. The name changed a few times during writing but I ended up with: Bailey’s heart. It’ll be posted as a Saturday Scene and if my calculations are correct (hahahahaha, yeah I suck at maths) there should be enough story for five Saturdays. I even made a pretty little picture to go with.

That’s also something I’ve been doing during these rainy and gloomy weeks of summer holiday: played with my pixrl express app (it’s available for Android and iPhone both). It’s really a photo editing app, but the art you can create there is amazing, I feel super creative when mucking about with it.

Anyhow, I’m getting really bored with my hair. I want to do something with it, but not cut it all off, or colour it crazy, or morph it into feathers. Just something slightly different ya know…

Also I added mini marshmallows to my chocolate chip cookie recipe, and OH MY GOODNESS WAS IT TASTY! I might have created a new type of drug… you have try it next time you bake cookies.

DSC_0147As some of you might know I’ve been playing Dragon Age Inquisition since December and the Jaws of Hakkon (DLC) since my birthday in April. I love the game, so much. I’ve loved Dragon Age since it came out and I’ve loved every new game they’ve released (yes, even Dragon Age 2).

When I got Jaws of Hakkon I was sooo happy, there was MOAR to play and it was made for characters higher than level 20 (when the game ends your character tends to be level 20-21, or mine were). I played the DLC with my mage, a heartbroken elf (if you play the Solas romance option you’ll kinda guess what happened here) and found it exciting to find some resistance from the creatures and things that you meet in the Frostback Basin. There were many occasion where I ran away so as to not get killed (RUN AWAY is a great option to not having to reload this game, especially since I suck at saving) and at the end of the DLC most enemies were my level and a match, but not impossible. I did fear the final boss though… I mean: FINAL BOSS. *doomsday music.*

I felt that that encounter was kinda hyped by everyone you met in the game, or maybe it was all me and how I get sucked in into these things (games, books, film – I’ve even snapped at hubs after reading a very emotional passage in a book, he had done nothing, I just had ALL THE FEELS!).

Aaaanyway, there I was, all ready for the last battle (frost resistant armour all around and fire damage etc on the weaponry) and when I finally get the nerve to fight I find that it’s TWO (2!) levels beneath me and not such a big ass fight after all…

I killed it dead on the first try and that was that. So excite. Not.

I love the story line in Jaws of Hakkon: I love the area, the characters and creatures… what I don’t like is that there are Gurgut (giant lizards) with higher level than the final boss. Or maybe not Gurgut, but there are Rift demons that are. And that kinda sucks… As it is now I don’t know if I’ll be able to replay it anytime soon. Meh.

Anyhow, this is one of the craziest weeks at work (confirmation this weekend) and I feel out of energy. Guess I’ll just have to suck it up and get through it. And hope I get the energy to write, at least a little.

The last few days I’ve thought about how we see ourselves (because of several friends’ posts on various social media). And I’m wondering how much of ourselves we share with our online friends and bffs.
I suppose you can say that there’s no one who truly knows every aspect of another human, unless they’re with you 24/7 (and that would be really really weird, like an unattached siames twin).
Because it’s like Shrek tells Donkey, we’re all like onions with all these layers of who we are… and you’d have to have really strong constitution to peal all those layers without legging it with tears running down your face (or maybe that only applies when dealing with real onions?).

I have friends who have seen many of my different personas (my hubby knows me best of all, but then he’s close to being with me 24/7) and they wouldn’t be surprised by my randomness. There’s comfort in that, a sense of security I’m hoping others feel around me too.

But then there’s the fun part of getting to know new people! Gradually seeing new things about them and discovering new points of interest.
Unfortunately this might also mean that you discover things about them you have a hard time accepting (like them being total douchebags and complete headcases). That’s when you might have to take steps back, or just stop hanging out with them. Something I think very difficult… I don’t do potential conflicts very well.
Push me into a corner and I’ll fight back, but I’d rather slip away unnoticed and just stop interacting with them. Suppose we all have things we need to get better at.

Anyhow, I’m hoping next week will be one with less illness. Although I’ve yet to catch that cold that’s been doing the round in the family… such a fun thing to look forward to, don’t you think!

i-love-my-best-friendsI’ve started out the new year by thinking a lot about love. The love I feel for my friends and how little difference I feel there is for those I’ve known for years and those I’ve recently met. Also how many different levels there is for love, and yet it’s all the same. Am I making any sense here at all?

Some might argue and say that you can’t tell if someone online is being honest about how they portray themselves, but to be frank: can you say that the people you meet face to face are completely what you see? I’ve experienced (both online and irl) how people seem one way when we first meet but then after a while show me sides of themselves that I have a difficulty accepting. And I do try to accept people for what they are, but there are things I cannot disregard (disrespecting others in any way, racism, sexism, etc…) and that leaves me no choice but to stop seeing them.

It hurts. Every time.

Luckily I’ve not had to drop anyone for quite some time (maybe I’ve stopped attracting douches?).

Inquisition_heraldry_DA2At the moment I’m fully submerged in Dragon Age Inquisition (WHAT AN AWESOME GAME!!!). If I’m not mistaken there’s only one or two main missions before it’s all over, but there are sooo many little assignments left and I WANT TO DO THEM ALL! We’ll see how this goes, I’m itching to make a new character, but I’ve promised myself to finish the game with the one I have (so many new things to explore with another character… sooooo many new things!).

This time I’ve romanced Commander Cullen (adorbs – ADORBS!), but since my next character is going to be Elven I’m going to give Solas a go. I’m ready to go wrestle hubby for the TV, right now, and switch from football to Xbox. But I’m nice (and I’ve already played some today, but that’s really of no importance… hehehe).

Anyhow, another year full of new things and old, and great things and not so great things, and life and death, and love. Always full of love.

The horde is at home today. Pirate had an upset stomach yesterday, Princess has the sniffles and Pumpkin gets to stay home just because.

We’re watching Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone and had a small slice of chocolate cake for dessert after lunch. None of them seem very ill, but it’s always better to be sure than sending them off to school. I think the twins will be able to go back to school tomorrow since neither of them are very ill today.
We’ll see…

My mum and dad are coming over this weekend because Pumpkin turns 3 on Sunday. She’s actually 3 years old! I can’t believe how fast time flies… my wee baby (I’m getting old, not that I mind, it’s just a fact).
We’re having Hogwarts Express cake and Spider-Man plates and cups. She told me these are her themes for the party (proud mama moment here, excuse me while I wipe away happy tears).

Anyhow, the film ended and I have le stüff to do…

Rainstorm.

Today is so dark. Like November decided to come at us with a vengeance. And this rain. I had hoped for a lot more of that delicious sunlight. I need sunlight! Don’t think it helps that I most definitely feel like I have the worst case of The Monday’s, ever.

Today I can’t get anything written on my NaNo piece, it’s stuck and I don’t know how to get back at it. So I’ll write something on another text and hope that this will make my brain jump start.

Anyhow, better make more tea and get writing.

xoxo
