Early Midsummer day morning

June 21, 2008 Leave a comment

I’m a morning person now. Yeah, if you know me, you know that’s not true in the usual sense of the word. But as I work nights now, I am up and doing things between 6 and 8 or so every morning, as I am now. I did not work tonight, but I woke up at 18.30, so I have only been up for just over twelve hours so far, and it’s 06.00 now.

I finished watching Wonderfalls, and I concluded that I’ve now watched every aired episode of Bryan Fuller’s shows, namely Dead Like Me, Wonderfalls and Pushing Daisies. Of those three, only the latter has been a commercial success, and will therefore be continued for a second season. Wonderfalls only got to air 13 episodes, and Dead Like Me got two seasons. All this while Days of our Lives has to date aired almost 11,000 episodes. But then again, some of these shows might’ve lost their charm after a few more seasons, I suppose. Also, I would be a slave to the television. Being able to download complete seasons of a series and watch them in a row makes me do things like this.

A little timeline for my interest in Bryan Fuller’s series goes as follows: I was at my grandma’s one day, in what I think must’ve been December 2006, as I catch a random episode of Dead Like Me, then watch like two more episodes, but then as I go home, I forget about it. Then in the last week of school (last year, June 2007), as I was supposed to write an essay about the Roman Empire, I remember the name of that cool show I had watched, and so I download both seasons. That made me change my entire sleeping pattern at the time, and of course miss the History assignment, although in the end it wouldn’t have done much good anyways. This is besides the point though. After I had watched both seasons of the series, I felt kinda like I do now, a little empty. Then basically, Tombag told me a few weeks ago about his friend in school who was watching this show called Pushing Daisies, made my the creators of Dead Like Me. So I download an episode, but thanks to the damned WGA strike, they only got out 9 episodes in the first season. So I downloaded Wonderfalls two days ago to have something to watch this weekend, and well… I watched all of them except the very first one in the past 30 hours or so I think.

Yeah. Just felt I should tell that story in case anyone was interested. I know you’re supposed to keep readers interested by keeping to the point, making things fun to read and so on, but well… I’m kinda writing partly for my own sanity, so I’m making a compromise, okay? I write what I feel like but try to make it read as interesting as possible instead 😛

Maybe I should go on to say what my past few weeks have been like. I moved into the room in Kornhill, and it’s quite nice. It’s about the size of my old room, and has a lot of the stuff I had before. But, I now have a sofa and a TV on my room, which I used to do the above mentioned crazy episode watching streak. As I don’t exactly have a normal sleeping pattern anymore, I also get hungry at weird times, so I was happy to find out Max (a hamburger restaurant about 15 minutes by bike away) closes at 01.00 every day, meaning I can get a proper meal if I don’t have something to cook at home after the stores have closed. The bad part was that I of course thought putting the drink in the bag with the other stuff was a great idea, so when I got back here, all the fries were drenched in Coca Cola. Yum… … I ate most of them anyways, I just put some dip on them.

Uhm… Other than that, I didn’t do any dancing around any symbols of Freyr or any other fertility gods’ penises today like many Swedes, my family doesn’t really celebrate Midsummer. That’s partly because it’s pagan and such, and partly because in general, our family just can’t be arsed to do things like celebrating. It’s not our thing, really. And I’m usually not too bothered about that, either.

Work is settling in now. I basically got no complaints the past few days at all. Well, last night I had a complaint from the night before because I accidentally gave one house Kyrkans Tidning (The church’s paper) instead of Hallandsposten (our local newspaper), but I can’t see how that’d be a huge problem… At least she got something to read, hehe. My leg muscles are going to be so trim by the end all this (early August).

That’s about it. What’s happening next is pretty much Metaltown the coming Friday. I have that day off from work too, so it’s cool. Going with Karolina, Daniel and Arvid, and it’s gonna be fun to do something social and different, after all this work, even though cycling through the night has many charms. And actually, I was supposed to mention earlier, I think I’ve done more cycling in the past two weeks than ever before in my life… I mean, there is all of grade four to six to take in account, to and from school, but that’s 20 minutes worth of biking per day, and now I do it for 4 hours per day, not counting the extra trips… Hmm… I’m gonna have to do some number crunching on that, but YOU GET THE POINT I WAS TRYING TO MAKE 😛

Uh. Uh. So yeah, that’s all. It’s now 7 am, and I might watch a movie or take a shower or play a game or something that isn’t sleeping. Wee.

PS. And yes, I still can’t pick which blog design I wanna have, it’s most probably got to do with me also not deciding what I wanna do with my life atm 😛 DS.

So considering my blog is generally unattractive and lacking of pictures, I thought I should add some. As I do not own a camera myself, I’m going to steal from my sister Eva and maybe one from Jenny as well. But here we go:

Also, for those who haven’t seen it, our (winning) entry into our school Melody Contest 🙂

Move

June 9, 2008 Leave a comment

This has been an interesting week. The day after graduation I woke up at around 11, and did… well, not much, until a few hours later… Then I started slowly packing things in my room together into boxes and bags. It wasn’t nice at all, I felt sentimental and sad, and after finally packing all the stuff I wanted to bring, I went upstairs to play Stones (The Ultima song) on the piano as some sort of closure 😛

Moved into my new place, at Kornhill. The room is about the same size as my old room, plus a bathroom. Shower is further down the corridor. Looks like I’ll have about 10-12 neighbours in the same building, not counting the secluded part that we rent to the muncipality. Stayed up watching Juno with Emma and some others, then went to work that night, my last apprentice day. It was quite tiring, mostly because I had nothing to drink with me. I got the keys and the book, then went back to Kornhill… Ate some sandwiches, then slept from 7 to 14.

The next day, I went home to pick up some stuff I had forgotten, and said bye to my sister, who was going home. Got a TV for my room, and watched The Usual Suspects with Emma and Cindy. The last thing I did before falling asleep was watching Doctor Who in bed… Awesome episode, I might add.

I woke up at about 13.30 from my mom ringing the doorbell, she wanted the keys to her bike (which I am using to get to the place where I pick up the newspapers. There I change bikes to one that has place for bags. Anyways, then I started surfing with dad’s laptop in bed… Wireless ftw, I so want a laptop 😛

Anyways, then I messaged Emil/Zordar/Newben and Carro, and told them to come over and play Super Smash Brothers Brawl with me. Emil brought a friend, so we brawled for a good 3 hours, and then played some Bomberman and Mario Kart as well. Good fun, I pwned quite a few rounds with Bowser, that’s definitely my best character.

After they left, I took the bike to Max to get a burger, and to explore the area a bit… The nights are amazing for biking these days tbh 😀

And that’s pretty much where I’m at now… Going to work in about an hour, my first “real” night of work, where I’m the one responsible for the whole thing. Then picking up a CD from Johanna with my (former 😩 ) class’ performance at the school Melody Festival, so I can upload it to Youtube tomorrow. I already kinda miss seeing my class, which wouldn’t have been the case until a few weeks ago.

Oh well, that’s all for now 🙂

Studenten – Graduation

June 6, 2008 Leave a comment

Yesterday I woke up at 6.30 to dress and get ready for the champagne breakfast at Johanna’s. As I arrived, however, turns out the only other person who was there early was Mimmi, and we had to wait around for the rest of the class for almost an hour. Food came late too ;P

In school, we took photos, were entertained by our teachers and such, were pronounced graduates, and then we got our grades, although I get my final grades later. As we won the Melody Festival, we got to go first out to greet our parents, and then we rode first on the Hay wagon things. I was wearing a shirt and a black jacket, although no tie.

As we went first, we arrived a bit early, so we had to stand around waiting for over an hour before we could do the march to Norre Katt’s Park. But wow, going first of all in the procession was quite an experience… Just a sea of people, must’ve been at least 10, 000 people gathered in a small area. Then the class randomly disintegrated in the park, and it was a bit weird. Went home to await people coming to hug me and give me gifts and talked for like 6 hours… Then I asked my sister if she could drive me to Johanna’s again to the pre-party there. I felt I needed some closure with my class, who I’ve only really learnt to enjoy being with in the past month or two… They were always nice people, it’s just that Swedes need some serious social lubricant to talk with people they don’t know much yet, and the name of that lubricant is “alcohol”.

So yeah… Moving today, it’s weird. Feels like I’m entering a new era of my life, as I’m moving, done with school, start working… It’s going to be fun though!
