return of winter


So. Everyone in Uppsala and the rest of Sweden I believe, thought that spring was here to stay, but I guess we just forgot that it’s only March yet, because this is what it looked like today. It started to snow again a couple of days ago and this day snow started in the morning and hasn’t stopped yet…

How is it at your places? Still snow and cold just like here?;)




to survive one more time

It’s so strange sometimes. When I went to high school I could almost tell if a test’d turn out good or bad, but now, while studying at the university it’s all upside down. I almost always believe that I’m going to fail, and then a couple of weeks later the resualt is back and it wasn’t as bad as I thought at all. Last week wasn’t a exception. And of course it’s great in the end, but the time between test and feed-back really is my definition of hell. Anyone else?!

Enough said about that. Has been a while since I entered here. Guess I’d better cling on to my snow/cold/winter-theme (even if it almost feels like spring is slowly beginning to reach my town). Here’s another one from this day.


paus (and a x-mas without snow)

So. I really don’t know how it happened, but when logging in on my account I just realized that I haven’t written in almost a month. Well, I guess other thing has stolen my time (like x-mas prep’s even if I don’t even like it, family, school and stuff like that) but maybe now, when it’s even new year it’s time for a little re-start. Don’t expect to much though, since I’ve a pretty big test in like 9 days or something like that but still I thougt it was nice just to drop in and say hello.


X-mas in Uppsala wasn’t really a snowy one. Actually it wasn’t any white at all. Green, green and a little of brown is all that you see wherever you go. And the temperature is almost like late Oct-Nov or Feb-March something. Which is very very weird. Well. Nice in some ways, absolutely. (For runners, for everyone who doesn’t like freezing and for those who like to go by bike.) But you also get this weird feeling that x-mas maybe never really happened this year. Because the x-mas-vacation always use to be snowy, and now; nothing. Also, it’s easy to understand that it must get colder sooner or later since it cannot be like this and then just start getting warmer since it’s still only January. And because of that it could of course’ve been nice to get those really freezing days during x-mas instead. Well. I’ll just stop complain. It’s really not a problem for me anyway.
I hope everyone else had a great x-mas, white or green!

postponing stuff


Snowy Big City Dreams, Feb 2010 © mbee

en timmes promenad med syster som avbrott under pluggandet var tanken. saken är bara den att det brukar ju sällan stanna där. en timma blir lätt till två och tre…och fyra…och fem timmar slutade den delvis ofrivilliga pausen på. och voíla plötsligt hade jag inte längre möjlighet att gå hem klockan åtta och hinna iväg och träna som var tanken, utan återvände till biblioteket klockan sju för att stanna till klockan 12. kul. liv. (särskilt när man inte klätt sig för att vara ute på natten och halvt hinner frysa ihjäl under cykelfärden hem. dagens bild får symbolisera den kylan.


// Am I the only one who think that those strict-1-hour-breaks u sometimes set up between studies, work, or else often has a strange tendency of stretching themselves out and somehow ending up as a fully-3-hours-absence? Well that happened to me this day, one hour walking went into five (?!) hours of walking, eating and buying stuff which was the reason why I returned to the library not until 7 in the evening and then leaving at midnight. great postponing really. I even almost freezed to death during my biking home in the night since I wasn’t really dressed nor prepared for nightly adventures… Photo of the day may represent my feelings on my way home… //

one last try

på allvar. detta blir den absolut sista gången jag försöker mig på att starta och dessutom u p p r ä t t h å l l a en blogg. har ett antal misslyckade försök i bagaget och med tanke på att folk har en tendens att kategorisera mig som “den mest stressade och upptagna människan som dom känner” (dock ingenting jag själv vill påstå. eller ja kanske lite då, men det skulle i så fall absolut inte betyda att jag samtidigt är världens mest effektiva människa, snarare tvärtom.) så är väl oddsen för att detta ska fungera en längre tid inte alltför låga… men. ett misslyckande är ändå alltid (oftast) bättre än inget försök alls så varför inte liksom?


// This will be my very last try to start a blog and to keep it up, after a few unsuccesfully tries before. Don’t have a very big hope I’ll make it but still, if I fail again I’ve at least tried, right? //
