My very first trip to America – part 2

Tuesday

Tuesday was a hot day and spent in Georgia Aquarium and the Coca-Cola Museum. We started in the aquarium and there were school kids everywhere up ’til lunch time! Apparently it was a big field day for many schools and the yellow school buses were parked outside the building… and there were lots of them, haha. The kids were excited to see the sea animals, the younger ones were a little bit loud, but they were alright. The aquarium was huge but it became even bigger when the kids left after lunch, haha. (I don’t think I’ll ever forget the very, very, excited boy in a row behind me at the dolphin show literally screaming “DOLPHIIINNNSSS!!! DOLPHINNSS!!! THEY’RE COMMIIINNNN’!!!” haha! ♥)

My phone’s memory storage died sometime in the aquarium so I don’t have that many pictures and not from the Coke museum either, but the “dolphins” in the picture above are actually white beluga whales playing with their blanket, haha. We stood there and watched them in their big tank for a long while. They were really fun to watch.

Like I said, the aquarium was huge (the biggest aquarium in the world now that I looked it up! 30 million litres of water, that’s impressive!) and had fishes from all over the world… from cold to warm waters. Whale sharks, sea lions, starfishes, an eight armed octopus, penguins, jelly fishes… anything related to the aquatic! We snacked on a pizza and a pretzel from the cafeteria for lunch and I bought a small keychain purse that was too cute… it’s printed with a jellyfish and the text “you jelly”, haha. ♥

The Coca-Cola museum was next to the aquarium so we just had to go and see it too. After getting our entry tickets, we were greeted by some staff who handed us a small can of Coke of our choice. I try to stay away from sodas (because of all the sugar and the carbonic acid that damage your teeth) but since this was the Coke museum, they simply wouldn’t let me go inside without a can, haha. I picked the regular one, carried it with me and left in the fridge when we got back home.

The first thing you experience is a small film (I suspect a longer version of their latest commercial?) in a room filled with old-school advert signs from around the world. I enjoyed the signs the most, haha. The film wasn’t bad, they tried to show how their drink is always there for the important moments in your life, small and bigger moments. After the film, you’re let to enter the next room.

You could choose to see how robots work with filling the glass bottles and cap them, read about the history of the Coca-Cola company and play some games, see even more signs from around the world, all the official Olympic pins, see the designs of their bottles, take a picture with their polar bear mascot… see the huge vault where the recipe is locked inside (to be honest, I think it’s just for visitors to pose in front of for pictures, haha). But I think the best part of the museum was to try different sodas from the world. I know I said I try to not drink soda, but you just had to do it – you would never get the opportunity to try sodas from all over the world in one place. I think my favorites were Ginger Ale from Mozambique and Vegibeta from Japan, there were some other good ones too but I don’t remember them… some were odd to say the least, some were too sweet but the drinks from North America were the ones I disliked the most, haha! And they also had a corner for different Coca-Cola flavors too of course… vanilla and cherry cola weren’t as bad as I had thought.

My very first trip to America – part 1

Ok, I’m gonna take this in English only because it would take forever to write it in Swedish and then translate things.

Friday

We (me, my brother Simon and his wife Sarah) left Sweden on Friday afternoon and arrived Friday evening, April 6th. I kept telling myself that I this would be the first time I would truly experience jet lag since the flight was over ten hours and I hadn’t slept at all during that time… I only managed to shut my eyes, but to my surprise, the jet lag never hit me. 🙂 Sarah’s sister Katie picked us up at the airport and drove us to their father’s (and his cat’s) home where we would stay during our trip. I was already surprised that the roads didn’t have any streetlights, but more wonders would come.

Leaving Arlanda Airport

Saturday

Saturday was the big day! We all dressed up and got ready for Katie’s wedding reception, hoping that the rain clouds would go away. The venue was outdoors in a pretty place with lots of nature and luckily under roof… because rain did come later in the evening. We helped setting the tables and decoration together with KT’s friends before the rest of the guests started to arrive. I wore a yellow lace dress with a turquoise bolero, but the weather was cold and I wasn’t the only one who was freezing, even if there was a bonfire burning next to the roof. Luckily for me, a friendly lady lended me a thin rain coat and Sarah found a blanket that I held onto tightly for the rest of the night – I don’t think anybody saw my pretty dress at all, haha! I didn’t know anybody, but people had fun and there were lots of vegan food. I had a fun time too. But I didn’t take any good pictures to share.

Sunday

The day after was a good day to go to the High Museum of Art which had everything from exciting new architectural and interior design to African, European and North American art. The entrance was free that day so a lot of families and couples visited the museum at the same time. It was a large museum with several floors and rooms – you could really spend half a day there if you want to explore everything it offers. I think my favorite exhibition was the photographs of the civil rights movement and how people still today are fighting for their rights.

If I’m not mistaken, we went to a vegetarian restaurant with parrots (outside, at the entrance) for lunch. I had a spinach quesadilla and a smoothie of pear juice, dates and bee pollen. The smoothie tasted kind of weird so my brother had to help me finish it.

Later in the afternoon, KT joined us for movies and we decided to see The Black Panther even though I was the only one who hadn’t seen it yet. We shared a large popcorn bucket and got two sodas – the size of the cup was the size of my underarm! I chose to drink some lemonade but filled my cup up to half. It was large enough for me, haha.

And I noticed that in the beginning of the film, they showed some scenes from “the British museum”… but it was shot outside and inside of the museum we had visited the very same day! I guess they really do shoot a lot of movies in Georgia.

Monday

The next day we went to Atlanta History Center to walk around the grounds and teach ourselves a little bit of the history of Georgia. Simon and Sarah had already been there before so they showed me around a little. It reminded me a lot about Skansen back home in Stockholm, but it was naturally much bigger than that. It was nice to see so many green trees when it was still snowing a little bit the day we left. And the birds sang much more beautifully than the sparrows and magpies back home too, haha.

One of the bigger buildings was the Swan House. It had a big drive way and impressive facade and was built in the 1920’s. A family of five lives there until the 60’s if I’m not mistaken. A maid greeted us when we entered (and informed us that there were “sadly” no ghosts connected to the building when we asked) and an even more impressive stairway were before us. Under it was a radio playing some fun 20’s music and beautiful checkered marble floor. Their turquoise kitchen was large and their library, morning and dinner rooms were like taken from a scene from Downton Abbey. Although the library had a, in my opinion, funny painting above the fireplace – a lady with angels surrounding her, but they didn’t have bodies, only heads.

I had watched the first Hunger Games movie on TV some time before the trip and also recognized some scenes that had been filmed in this house and its (fantastic) gardens.

One of the more impressive rooms must have been the blue master bathroom, haha. Mirrors everywhere! And the master bedroom must have been the size of a smaller apartment.

After the visit we went to OK Café, a diner with an old school styling (even the waitresses wore classic 50’s waitress dresses and aprons). I almost felt like I was sitting in the diner in the Seinfeld shows! S and S ordered a hamburger each with fries and I got a chicken sandwich. He had a coke with that (that got refilled even though we were full so we took it with us home haha) and Sarah and I had a strawberry milkshake each. ❤

A Head Full Of Dreams – Gothenburg, 2017

WILL BE UPDATED SOON WHEN I HAVE ACCESS TO MY PICTURES AGAIN!

I’m gonna write this in English as it would take too much time to write in both Swedish and English.

Earlier this summer, my brother, his fiancée, mom and I traveled across the country to Gothenburg to see Coldplay on their “A Head Full Of Dreams” tour. If you have read my blog, you may remember that my bro and I saw Coldplay on the same tour last summer, but in our hometown Stockholm.

We lived in a central apartment and no, it doesn’t have anything to do with the concert itself, but it was too gorgeous to not mention. Just look and these pictures! Mom found it on AirBnB.

[insert pictures]

Three of us had GA/standing tickets for one of the shows (25 June (mom had a seating ticket)) and we got ready in the morning and left the apartment for start queuing outside the arena for getting a good spot. Unfortunately, it started raining as soon as we stepped outside and weren’t perfectly prepared for it. I had my rain jacket, but my brother and his fiancée tried to stay dry with ponchos… that broke. We used one to sit on the ground instead. The rain stopped eventually but only to come back every now and then through the whole day. It was insane! 10 degrees Celsius with strong winds switching from rain to moments of sunshine… perfect weather for catching a cold.

The merchandise and t-shirts were more or less the same as last year if I remember correctly, and I got myself a rainbow flower shirt that I wanted last year.

Everyone complained about the weather (thankfully we bought some blankets and towels to keep us warm… it really was a nightmare). And it didn’t stop after getting inside the arena either.

Inside, after founding some great spots to stay at, we befriended some other fans and two Danish women. The women had VIP tickets and gotten some special merchandise – I remember their coloring book and pencils the best. Apparently there were no VIP standing area, which other tour stops had according to the women, and made them a bit sad. Why paying more money if you aren’t going to stay closer to the band than the rest?

And the horrible weather continued.  One of the pre-acts had to cancel (I swear that I saw rain POUR onto their keyboard from the plastic tent above them!), a girl fainted, Sarah (my brother’s fiancée) was shivering, my brother was shivering, nobody was warm and the mood was lousy. As the thought that was in everybody’s mind was: will Coldplay even be able to play in this weather?

Luckily, the rain stopped a bit when they finally entered the stage and everyone, and I mean everyone, seemed to be filled with energy again. Nobody cared about how awful the weather had been anymore… and a rainbow appeared to match Coldplay’s colorful stage!

Since I had seen the same show last year, I wasn’t that enthusiastic this time (and I blame the weather on ruining my mood too) and couldn’t help but feeling like it was better then. Perhaps because it was my first time seeing them live and I was more excited. However, I did cry again, not when Clocks played, but when Everglow was performed. Martin’s words about how this song is for everyone who hasn’t made it and passed away and the actual lyrics made me think of my dad. So, I shed some tears and tried to not think about it for the next songs.

[insert YouTube fan cam of everglow]

As thanks for being one of the best audiences they’ve had (standing in pouring rain and cold temperatures all day long), Coldplay promised to perform the best show they’ve ever had and also made us a song! It was really funny and not so bad at all, and I think everyone in Ullevi arena appreciated it.

[insert fan cam of song for fans]

However, after the confetti bombs and huge balloons, the show came to an end and we were relieved to go back to our rented apartment, warm ourselves up and then go to sleep. We slept so well that night… unfortunately we had to wake up early for the train back home to Stockholm. But we slept on the train and also in our own beds at home. ❤️

Lana on my mind

Den här helgen stannar jag i Uppsala för att göra lite smått och gott som jag inte har hunnit göra hemma. Men idag tog jag det lugnt, promenerade ned till stan, vidare till Botianiska Trädgården (att gå bland rosorna som doftade underbart och lyssna till Honeymoon var magiskt ♥) och förbi Ica en sväng för att köpa lite frukostbröd och frukt. Det var min dag det!

Annars har jag spenderat min tid åt SOFOSKO och att fangirla över Lana Del Rey som släppte två singlar tidigare i veckan och nytt album nästa vecka. Min familj köper Lust For Life i CD åt mig som sen födelsedagspresent och jag beställde en klar LP i begränsad utgåva i förrigår – kan inte vänta tills jag får hålla den i handen i September! SÅ exalterad över albumet som kommer snart, de låtar jag redan har hört är magiska! ♥

Lite bilder från veckorna som gått:

I’m staying in Uppsala this weekend to do things I haven’t had the time to do when I’m at home. But I had a chill day today, took a walk to the central city parts, continued to the Botanical Garden (to stroll among the roses which smelled wonderful and listening to Honeymoon was magical ♥) and stopped by the supermarket to buy some bread for breakfast and fruit. That was my day!

I have otherwise spent my time for the summer research school and fangirl over Lana Del Rey who just released two singles earlier this week and will drop a new album next week. My family are getting me the Lust For Life CD for me as a late birtday present and I pre-ordered a limited edition clear vinyl two days ago – I can’t wait until I get to hold it in my hands in September! SO excited for the album, the songs I’ve heard to far are amazing! ♥

Sharing some photos above from the previous weeks. 

Weekend fun

Idag fortsatte värmen! Mamma och brorsan kom hit och spenderade dagen med mig. Vi gick omkring i Uppsala, åt lunch vid Café Linné (stora sallader! Jag tog en Caesar sallad, krutongerna var lite stora men den var god!) shoppade lite i affärerna och filade vid Güntherska Hovkonditoriet. Nästa gång ska vi sätta oss i innergården och inte vid ån! Verkade definitivt mer stilla och lugnt där. Deras iste var slut så jag tog en is chai istället, den kan jag rekommendera! Den smakade lite kryddigt och sött (typ kanel, vanilj, socker och kanske nejlika?) och lite mjölkigt, men den var kall och god så den var bra. 🙂

Nu har de åkt hem mot Stockholm igen och jag ska till en grillfest i Flogsta! En tjej i min SOFOSKO klass bjöd in mig så jag ska strax ta mig dit, inte för att grilla (jag är så mätt!) utan mest för att hänga. 😉


The hot weather continued today! Mom and my bro came over to spend the day with me. We walked around in Uppsala, had a lunch at Cafe Linné (big salads! I had a Caesar salad, the croutons were a little bit too big but it tasted good!), did some shopping in the stores and took a break at Gütherska Hovkonditoriet (a very old cafe and bakery, one of the best in Sweden (if not THE best)). Next time we’re gonna take seats in their inner yard instead of sitting at the river!  Seemed to be much calmer there. Their ice tea was sold out so I had an ice chai instead, I can totally recommend it! It tasted a bit spicy and sweet (like cinnamon, vanilla, sugar and maybe carnation?) and a little milky, but it was cold and nice so I liked it. 🙂

Mom and bro has went back home to Stockholm now and I’m going to a BBQ party in Flogsta! A girl from my summer research school invited me so I’m going over there soon, not for BBQ:ing (I’m so full!) but just for hanging out. 😉

This is life

Idag tog jag en rejäl sovmorgon och började dagen med en frukost med mango, melon, te och bröd med färskost innan jag satte mig i gräset och bläddrade i ELLE UK. Det var varmt idag och solen sken starkt så jag drog på mig en skjorta över efter ett tag. Jag har inte köpt någon solkräm här i Uppsala och vill inte bli bränd. 😛

Sen åt jag lite rester på falafel, bulgur och paprika (min standardrätt haha) innan jag begav mig ut igen. Jag cyklade till botaniska trädgården och kom precis i tid för att se ett brudpar gå fram till vigselplatsen – inte visste jag att man kan gifta sig där! Jag fick runtom lite grann tills jag kom till min favoritplats i trädgården och satte mig och ritade. Nu har de ställt ut alla palmer, citrusträd, lagerttäd och andra medelhavsväxter och det är så fint att sitta bland dem. Jag hoppas att rosenbäddarna blommor lite senare också, pionerna behövde de ta bort i ett år pga sjukdom såg jag förut. Synd, pioner är de jag gillar mest.

Jag pratade med mamma i telefon en stund och hon kommer förbi imorrn (yay!). Efteråt cyklade jag förbi Ica och köpte en mango (SÅ god och till billigt pris!) och mini focaccias till middag. Satt och åt dem vid balkongen medan grannarna spelade musik till sin grillfest nedanför. Och just där och då kändes livet så fint och härligt – lite frukt och bröd, fantastiskt väder och lite skön musik. Det behövs inte mycket mer än så för en trevlig sommarkväll!


I stayed in bed for a long time this morning and started the day with mango, melon, a cup of tea and bread with cream cheese before I sat down in grass and read ELLE U.K. It was hot today and the sun shone brightly so I put on a shirt after a while. I haven’t bought any sun lotion here in Uppsala yet and didn’t want to get burned. 😛

Then I had some left overs of falafel, bulgur and bell pepper (my standard meal haha) before I set out again. I took my bike to the botanical garden and arrived just in time to see a bride and groom walk the aisle to the wedding ceremony – I didn’t know you can get married there! I had to walk around the guests a little to get to my favorite spot in the garden and then sat down to draw. They have moved out the palm trees, citrus trees, laurel trees and other Mediterranean plants to the outdoors and it’s so pretty to sit among them. I hope the rose bushes will bloom later in the summer, I read that they had to take away the peonies for a year because of illness. That’s too bad, because peonies are the ones I like the most.

I spoke with mom on the phone for a while too and she’s coming over tomorrow (yay!). After the call, I rode to the supermarket and bought a mango (SO yummy and for a cheap price too!) and mini focaccias for dinner. Sat and ate them at the balcony while the neighbors played music to their BBQ party below. And life felt so nice right there and then – some fruits and bread, amazing weather and nice music. More than that isn’t really necessary for a pleasant summer evening!

Easter 2017

Påsken började med pappas begravning på skärtorsdagen och jag tror inte jag tänker skriva om den… det var fint och så, men jobbigt förstås. Men han är liksom inte död för mig, även om jag vet att han är det i verkligheten. Och börjar tårarna komma så jag ska inte skriva mer om det, hehe. :’)

På långfredagen var det dags att flytta. Från mitt inneboende till ett korridorrum någon gata längre bort dom jag stannar i en månad. Jag hann hälsa på två andra som stannade där under påsken, Alicia och Tiffany (?), och de verkade jättetrevliga! Hoppas det kommer fungera bra i en månad nu. Jag åker till mitt rum senare idag. 🙂 Ser fram emot min nya kontorsstol och gardinerna mamma klippte ihop av påslakan (hon kunde inte stå emot hur billiga de var på IKEA, haha…).

Och på lördagen åkte jag, brorsan och hans fästmö in till Hotell Diplomat (kände mig orolig innan att jag inte skulle passa in på ett sånt ställe, men det var lugnt) för Afternoon Tea. Jättegott! Jag beställde in en kanna te som hette “Marco Polo” som smakade lite fruktigt. Det var inspirerat av hans resor och beskrivningen lät som en resebrochyr så jag var ju bara tvungen att ta den, haha! Brorsan tog hotellets egna blandning och den smakade starkt (!!) och luktade ännu starkare, haha! Tur att jag inte valde det, jag är inte så förtjust i te som smakar som att de har dragit i flera timmar.

Snittarna var goda (speciellt den med paprikafyllning!) och de påskinspirerade bakverken också. Men bäst var kanske de nygräddade sconesen, går ju inte att stå emot när man älskar bröd heller! Två stycken små scones fick man, plus små skålar med vaniljsmetana, drottningmarmelad och gräddig lemoncurd tror jag.

Efteråt gick vi vidare till Sephora där Sarah (brorsans fästmö) såg till att jag hamnade i en stol och att en makeup artist fixade till mig! Kändes kul men annorlunda eftersom jag typ aldrig har smink på mig. 😛 Sminkösen (säger man så på svenska eller handlar det bara om teaterfolk?) var supertrevlig och rolig att prata med, och hon var snäll som frågade mig innan om det var okej att sätta på nåt mer eller om jag skulle tycka att det skulle kännas konstigt. Det slutade med att vi gick därifrån med varsin kasse plus gratisprover eftersom Sarah var med i deras lojalitetsprogram hemma i USA.

Och sist men inte minst så stannade vi en stund i Kungsträdgården och fotade alla körsbärsträd förstås! Så rosa och fina! Vi hjälpte några turister att ta bild också. 😉

Och sedan dess har jag vara varit hemma och läst fyra artiklar till ett grupparbete. Jag skulle hitta fyra artiklar om hur man kan behandla högt blodtryck och njursjukdom. Jag hoppas jag kommer med något bra på torsdag då jag ska presentera en av dem.

Och just det! Jag sökte till att läsa en grundkurs i persiska nästa termin, känner lite för att lära mig baserna i alla fall. Kanske för att pappa gick bort, jag vet inte. Men i alla fall. 15 hp på halvfart som distanskurs fast det leds av Uppsala Universitet. 🙂

Easter began with dad’s funeral on Maundy Thursday and I don’t think I’ll write about it… it was beautiful and so, but though of course. But he’s not really dead to me, even though I know he is in reality. And now I can feel my tears welling up so I’ll stop here, hehe. :’)

On Good Friday, it was moving day for me. From my roommate’s student apartment to a dorm room a few streets away which I will stay at for a month. I did meet two other dorm room mates who stayed there for Easter, Alicia and Tiffany (?), and they seemed really nice! I hope it’ll all go well this month now. I’ll go to my room later today. 🙂 I really look forward to my new office chair and the curtains mom cut from bed sheets (she couldn’t resist the cheap IKEA price, haha…). 

And on the Saturday, I, my brother and his fiancée went to Hotel Diplomat (I was worried that I wouldn’t fit in such a fancy place, but it was ok) for some Afternoon Tea. It was lovely! I ordered a pot of tea called “Marco Polo” which tasted a little fruity. It was inspired by his travels and the description sounded like a travel guide so I just had to pick that one, haha! Big bro had the hotel’s own tea blend and it tastes strongly (!!) and smelled even stronger, haha! I’m glad I didn’t pick that one, I don’t really like tea that taste like they’ve been brewing for hours.

The small sandwiches were good (especially the one with bell pepper filling!) and the Easter inspired pastries/desserts too. But perhaps the freshly baked scones were the best, it’s impossible to not like them if you’re a bread lover just like me! Two scones per guest served with vanilla smetana, Queen’s marmalade (blueberries, raspberries and blackberries) and a creamy lemon curd I believe.

Afterwards, we went to Sephora where Sarah (my brother’s fiancée) made sure I was seated in a stool and that a makeup artist made me pretty! It was fun but different since I pretty much never wear makeup. 😛 The makeup artist was really friendly and fun to talk to, and she was very sweet to ask me if it was ok to add something on or if I would feel like it was too much. And the visit ended with us both leaving with a bag plus some free samples because Sarah is in their loyalty program in the states.

And finally we stopped at Kungsträdgården (“King’s Garden”) and snapped photos of all the cherry blossom trees! So pink and pretty! We also helped some tourists with taking pictures too. 😉

And since then I’ve just stayed at home and read four articles for a group work. I was supposed to find four articles on how to treat hypertension and renal determination. I hope I’ll come up with something good on Thursday, that’s when I’m supposed to present one of the articles.

Oh right! I applied to take a beginners class in Persian next term, I feel like I need to learn at least the basics. Maybe because dad passed away, I don’t know. Whatever. 15 credits on half speed and as a distance course even though it’s held by Uppsala University. 🙂

About today

Idag har varit en lugn dag, inga föreläsningar eller så. Har bara stannat hemma och fokuserat (försökt i alla fall, haha) på att fixa klart inför morgondagens gruppredovisning och plugga inför tentan nästa vecka. Mycket om hur maten spjälkas till de minsta beståndsdelarna för att sedan tas upp i tunntarmarna… Lite klurigt att ha koll på allt! Men det ska nog gå, hela nästa vecka är tom så att vi kan plugga – det är snällt av lärarna!

Just nu har jag satt på radion och slappnar av med att försöka filta ihop en katt. Det var en julklapp jag fick, och det är ju så kul att pyssla! Hoppas jag får den klar inom kort, den är inte så stor men nästa vecka ska ju ägnas åt plugg så… 😉


Today has been a calm day, no lectures or anything. I’ve just stayed at home and focused (well at least tried to, haha) on getting everything done for tomorrow’s group oral presentation and study for the exam next week. A lot of how the food gets to the smallest compartment and then absorbed in the small intestine… a bit tricky to learn everything! But I think I can do it, next week has a free schedule so we can study – that’s kind of the teachers!

I’m listening to the radio right now and relaxing by trying to needle felt a kitten. It was a Christmas gift I got, and it’s so much fun to craft! I hope I’ll finish it soon, it’s not very big but next week is for studying, so… 😉

It’s been quiet here

Halloj!

Det har varit full rulle sedan julen och jag har inte haft tid att sätta mig ned och skriva om vad som händer i mitt liv… förrän nu! Jag har ett par tankar som jag tänkte dela med mig av, men de får skrivas som egna blogginlägg och publiceras senare.

Kursen i “medicinsk genetik” (tänk typ bara allt om gener, genetiska sjukdomar och vem som ärver vad) tog slut igår och jag hoppas att den tentan gick bra… min förra tenta i neurobiologi blev jag underkänd med en halv procent!! Jag är så sur för att de underkände mig (en halv procent motsvarade ju inte ens 1 poäng på tentan!), men lärarna ville inte ge med sig så jag måste väl göra omtentan i mars. En vecka innan tentan för kursen som drar igång på måndag: metabolism. Vi får se hur det går, i värsta fall kommer jag kugga på bägge två.

Hur som helst. Nu glömmer vi mina misslyckade prov. 😛 Igår efter tentan var det ett soligt och ganska varmt väder, så jag tog på mig min nya jacka och promenerade runt i Uppsala med lurarna i öronen. Passade på att testa “My Story” funktionen på Instagram också! Det var roligare än vad jag trodde, haha! Tog såklart bilder med mobilen också, jag lämnade den riktiga kameran hemma för de flesta platser har jag redan fotograferat (t.ex. den botaniska trädgården).

Idag ska det tvättas en del och sedan ska jag passa på att vara med brorsan som också är i Uppsala idag p.g.a. ett möte. 🙂 Det var så skönt att kunna ta en sovmorgon i morse, har inte gjort det på länge eftersom jag ville plugga så mycket som möjligt inför tentan…

Vi hörs senare!

Hiya!

The time has flied by since christmas and I haven’t had the time to sit down and write about all the things that’s happened in my life… until now! I have a few thoughts I wanna share, but I’ll write blog posts for them seperately and publish them later.

The course about “medical genetics” (think about everything about genes, genetic diseases and who inherits what) ended yesterday and I hope the exam went well… I failed my last exam about neurobiology with 0.5%!! I’m so mad they failed me with a half percentage (0.5% doesn’t even equal 1 point of the exam!) but the teachers didn’t want to round it up to let me pass so I guess I’ll have to take the exam again in March. One week before the exam of my next course that starts on Monday: metabolism. We’ll see how it goes, I’ll fail both of them in the worst case scenario.

Whatever. Let’s not think about my failed exams. 😛 Yesterday after the exam, the weather was sunny and kinda warm, so I put on my new jacket and walked around in Uppsala with music in my ears. I took the opportunity to try out the “My Story” function on Instagram too! It was more fun than what i thought it would be, haha! I did of course snap some pictures with my phone too, I left the real camera at home because I have already photographed most of the places (like the botanical garden for example).

Today, laundry needs to be done and then I’ll spend some time with my brother who is in Uppsala as well because of a meeting. 🙂 It was so nice to sleep in this morning, I haven’t done that in a long time because I wanted to study as much as I could for the exam…

See you later!
