A trip to Stockholm.

The weather is weird here in Sweden. It's been really cold the past few weeks and now all of a sudden, the snow is melting again. When I walked home from the bus stop a while ago I almost fell on the ice. Not so nice. 

Anyway. Last tursday-friday (20-21 of November) went to Stockholm with my class in school. We went to the trade fair where most of the colleges and universities were informing about their programs. I don't know how many bags with brochures I had home with me on friday. Thursday night we went to Dramaten, a popular theatre where all the celebreties go. The play wasn't the best I've seen. I actually liked the plays up at West Side better :) I went to bed early that night. Totally exhausted!
Friday we got to spend on our own. I went shopping with some girls before lunch and after that I went to Sivletto, my favorite store in Stockholm. They sell rockabilly stuff. I bought a pair of bibs (Dickies) and just enjoyed the visit. There are so many nice things to look at. Our bus went home about 4.00 pm and I was so tired I slept most of the way. The ride took a little over three hours, not too bad.

Saturday-sunday I spent at a friends house and saturday night we went to listen to John Lindberg Trio (some friends who play in a rockabilly band). It was a whole lot of fun! I didn't go to sleep until 4.30 am. Haha!

I'll give you an update on what's happening this weekend later.



Time to tell y'all what has been going on here in Sweden the last few months:

Dancing is going well. I think the interest for line dance is increasing. I have between 20-25 people in my beginner group and another 25 in my beginner/intermediate group. It's so much fun! Yesterday I found out about a course where you learn more about what it takes to be an instructor. I think my association will let me go. It only takes one day and then you're certified.

October 23rd I passed my driving test so I've got my licence now. It's such a relief!

The first snow fell over Hälsingland on November 31st. I spent Halloween with my sister and the kids in a town close to Hudiksvall where they live. Emilia and Elias cut their pumpkins and that must be a hidden talent of theirs...

School is taking a lot of time these days. All the students in my class have started UF companies. I work with my friend Jennie and we're going to sell a Christmas record that she is recording. The whole UF thing (UF means enterprising youth or something close to it) and we do it to lear how to run a company. We are required to do it because economy is our major. The process is very stressful but in the mean time it's fun and very different from writing essays and taking tests.

I've been to several rockabilly gigs this fall too. The Swedish band Domestic Bumblebees played together with Danish Randy Rich  a couple of weeks ago. It was really neat to hear them live. They played in Enviken where my sister and I went this saturday (i wrote about it in the last entry) and they really shook the place!

Some other news that I really want to share (I know I've told some of you allready) is that my friends are recording a song with a text that I've written. Their band is called John Lindberg Trio. After my sister's friend heard about that, he wanted me to write a text for them as well. So I did and that one is about to be recorded too. It's really exciting! :)

So, this is somethings that have been going on. Seems like I'm busy all the time. I'll keep you updated!

You can comment on the entries if you click on "kommentarer", I'm sorry that all the words, except for those I write, are in Swedish... But on the other hand, it's a great opportunity for you to practice! Haha!


Sweden 110808

Sweden is rainy. The first snow is melting and the sky is gray. I'm getting ready to go to a town called Falun today, with my sister. We are going to see a friend of ours and then we're stopping by a rockabilly gig in Enviken tonight. Those places are just about 70-100 kilometers from Alfta where I live. Anyways, I think it'll be a lot of fun!

I don't know why I haven't thought about this before, to make a new blog so that y'all can get updates on my life here in Sweden.

This is just a short introduction blog entry but I'll write as often as I can, I promise! :)

I'll end this entry with a picture from the trails when my parents visited me/us before graduation. Good times! 

I miss you all so much!!
