Why aren’t there any Nyago themes?
And I’m sorry about that. There has just been a lot going on for a while now. Some funerals, working where there aren’t enough staff during the summer (ergo: working a lot), vet-visits with cats and starting school. There has also been a new “job” introduced for me that I am really excited about, but aren’t really supposed or allowed to talk about, so I have to leave that. But all in all, it’s been a busy summer.
The biggest change is school though. I’ve started studying English at the University this week and I’m super-excited and terrified all rolled into one. I’ve always loved English, so I thought it better to start with something I liked and see where it leads. And I guess it wouldn’t hurt to pick this blog back up to practise my English on the side too.
This first week have been crazy. Last week there was introduction that informed us that we have no holidays. Our holiday is (and I quote, but translate to English):
“The night between January 17th and January 18th as that marks the start of the spring term.”
I guess I should have been prepared with that introduction, but there really is no slow starting week at University. You get thrown right in the middle of it all. Stress, papers to turn in, exercises you need to master, novells to read before next class.
I do love it though. I feel like I’m doing something all the time and I’ve been staring at my wall for to long. It makes me… energetic!
I’ve also met new people through the class and it’s great to have them to be nervous and stressed and a little excited with. We’re going to watch a small beachvolleyboll-turnament at the University this evening, so I hope it won’t start raining like it looks like now.
The University is also offering some free spare-time activities and this sunday I’ll audition for the Student choir. Later on there will also be singing workshops every monday, with the only requirement of showing up.
So I sort of feel like my life is starting to happen.
As for HKO, you can currently find me at the European OB, which is the only one except the original one (as an FB I see it as the original) I’ll be playing. I’m the regular noliai there too. Don’t believe anyone who else who claims to be me if it would ever happen.
I love Jane Austin so I couldn’t help myself
Take the Quiz here!
You are Elinor Dashwood of Sense & Sensibility! You are practical, circumspect, and discreet. Though you are tremendously sensible and allow your head to rule, you have a deep, emotional side that few people often see.
The funny thing is that my (younger) sister got Marianne Dashwood, the younger sister. Funny since the first time I saw the movie-version of the book (well, it was the series actually) I called my sister and told her she had to see it cause we resembled those sisters a lot. And when she saw it, she agreed.
Hmm… a crust on my burnmark, shouldn’t that have healed by now?
*tears crust* OUCH!
This day starts out juuust fine.

I don’t have the strenght to do the dishes today.
I don’t have the strenght to write a proper blog today.
I didn’t have to work today, so I got to work on the request I had gotten. I loved singing this song just as much as I thought I would!
Burned my arm on a hot plate in the café today. I thought I would scream, it hurt so bad! Comforted myself by getting sushi take-away. Honestly I can’t really afford it right now, but sometimes you need to ignore money-issues and just enjoy life.
It wouldn’t be much of a life if you didn’t.
After sushi I went through some mail and online-stuff. I’d gotten a request to sing Six Pence None The Richer - Kiss Me. I love that song! It reminds me of summer and long, bright nights. Honestly I have a couple of requests waiting for me, but this will have to pass them. It’s such a great song! Maybe I’ll have time to record it on sunday?
Today was market eve in my home town so we were open an hour longer than usual. A lot of work led to my break running a “tad” bit late, but at least I got one. (At one point I did wonder.) Last hour it calmed down though. I guess the weather (rain and cold) had some part in that.
As usual I was craving something sweet, so today I got Strawberries. I love to eat them just as they are (well rinsed, but that’s all I do).
I can never get tired of Strawberries, I l♥ve them. I even wear them on my shoes this summer.
I’ve been working 5 hours in the café today. The café is the most stressful part of the job for me. I never seem to manage to close on time. Somehow I still manage to clock out in (good) time though. Probably because I have workmates who help me out. I like my workmates!
I’ll be working a lot in the café during summer so I do hope I get faster with a little training.
I’ve been buying clothes 2nd hand online and today I picked up the package that recently arrived. My sister keeps nagging me about “going out” only I can’t wear a sweatshirt or hoodie *sigh*
What do you think about this one, think she’ll accept it?
It took some time to get a shot that showed the back, I got a lot of pics of my neck though. You really shouldn’t watch close-up of parts of your body. Now I have weird complex-issues about my neck.
The day ended in a good way with my latest addiction; FruitDanish
M did say it when I brought a bag for the 3rd day in a row:
-The café isn’t good for you, ellen
I’ll be rolling instead of walking before this summer has ended
Wow, it’s been ages since I blogged properly. Probably because the more time I spend here, the more I miss HKO. And I miss HKO!
Please bring it back, pretty please!
Anyways, I’m hearing words about HKO getting closer and closer to opening up again, so maybe I dare start blogging for real again?
I’m svamped at work though, so I won’t promise to much, but I’ll do my best. I do miss my blogging as well after all.
So, as some of you know by now; I love singing! And now there is this contest where you can record a song in a real studio and I wanna win that so bad! So I’m asking you to help me out, please?
The contest is simply get the most votes for your picture and it seems like you can vote even if you’re not logged in, so you wanna help me out and give me a vote? If you do, I would be so happy! The contest is in swedish but it’s easy to vote.
