My birthday 2017

Så min födelsedag började med en dugga om ett flertal histologiska preparat man skulle kunna identifiera utan att få veta vilken del i kroppen man tittar i. Man fick 10 bilder (av kanske 50-70 från listan) och hade man 4 fel skulle man bli underkänd. Jag gick dit och skrev så gott jag kunde men ju längre tiden gick desto mer nervös och ängslig blev jag. Och så tänkte jag på vykortet jag fick med posten på morgonen – allas namns finns däri förutom pappas. Och då blev jag ledsen, att jag bara fick 21 födelsedagar med honom (20 eftersom jag inte var hemma förra året, mamma kom hit och överraskade mig). Så jag ringde mamma och hon hörde att jag var ledsen och körde hit efter jobbet. Jag ville egentligen inte att någon skulle komma för jag tänkte plugga för tentan veckan därpå, men jag var så ledsen så det skulle inte gå att koncentrera mig den dagen ändå. Mamma och Sarah kom, hade med sig ballonger, gula girlanger, tårta, blommor och presenter. Och sakta så blev dagen bättre. ♥ Vi gick och åt middag på Koh Phangan bakom universitetshuset – jag har bara sett den utifrån men det såg ännu bättre ut inuti! Jag kan absolut rekommendera den, maten var jättegod (deras kokos milkshake också ♥) och inredningen spännande. Det skulle kännas som att man var på en Thailändsk strand på riktigt med blinkande lampor, reggae musik (inte Thailändsk haha?) och mysiga bord. Och, det jag tyckte var mest spännande, musiken avbröts… för fejk åska!! SÅ kul, haha! Det kom åskmuller genom högtalarna istället, haha. Definitivt ett roligt ställe att gå till med vänner.

Tårtan var liten, jättegod och mäktig, och vi var så mätta efter middagen så de fick ta med sig en bit hem. Till present fick jag (!!) en Nintendo Switch!!!!! MED (bl.a.) ZELDA SPELET SOM JAG FANGIRLADE OM TIDIGARE HÄR I BLOGGEN!! Jag har tyvärr inte hunnit spela det än (tenta + omtenta + SOFOSKO + åker hem på helgerna + snart dags för nästa omtenta), men jag ska definitivt göra det så fort jag har tid över!

Men min födelsedag kanske började dåligt men den slutade underbart. Är så glad att de kom, ballongerna har knappt något helium kvar i sig men de ligger här på golvet bredvid mig, haha. Och jag klarade av duggan som tur var, hade inte orkat med ett till “bakslag” i plugget.


So my birthday begun with a mini exam on several histological samples that we were supposed to identify without knowing which part of the body we’re looking at. You got 10 pictures (of maybe 50-70 from the list) and if you got 4 of them wrong, you failed. I went there and wrote down my best answers, but the longer the time passed afterwards, the more nervous and anxious I became. And I started thinking of the post card I got that morning – everyone’s names were written inside except for dad’s. And then I got sad, I only got to spend 21 birthdays with him (or 20 because I wasn’t home last year, mom came and surprised me). So I called mom and she noticed that I was sad and drove to here after work. I really didn’t want anyone to come because I was planning on studying for the exam on the week after, but I was so sad and wouldn’t be able to concentrate that day anyway. Mom and Sarah came and had brought balloons, yellow paper garlands, cake, flowers and gifts. And the day slowly got better. ♥ We went for dinner at Koh Phangan behind the university hall – I had only seen it from outside but it looked even better inside! I definitely recommend it, the food was great (and so was their coconut milkshake ♥) and the interior was exciting. The idea was that it would feel like sitting on a beach in Thailand with colorful stringlights, reggae music (not Thai haha?) and cosy tables. And, the most exciting thing in my opinion, was when the music got interrupted…  by a fake thunderstorm!! SO fun, haha! The sound of thunder came through the speakers instead, haha. It’s definitely a fun place to go with friends.

The cake was small, super good and mighty in flavours and we were so full after dinner they had to bring some back home. For presents I got (!!) a Nintendo Switch!!!!! WITH (among another game) THE ZELDA GAME I WAS FANGIRLING ABOUT EARLIER!! I unfortunately haven’t had time to play it yet (exam + exam to take again + summer research school + went home on the weekends + another exam to take again soon) but I will as soon I have the time to!

My birthday may have started badly but it ended wonderfully. I’m so glad they came, the balloons hardly have any helium left in them but they lie here on the floor next to me, haha. And, luckily, I passed that mini exam. I don’t know how I would’ve reacted if I got another failure in school.

Fine liner pens

Så, nu har sommarjobbet kommit igång lite smått (därav de få blogginläggen på sistone) och det kommer inte hända så mycket på några veckor skulle jag tro (förutom Coldplay~ ♥)… jag menar, igår spenderade jag hela dagen med att spela om “Ôkami“, för vad ska man annars hitta på när det regnar hela dagen? Idag ska jag rita vidare på min Zelda doujin (som aldrig kommer bli klar) för det var så länge sedan jag ritade nånting “på riktigt”. 🙂

My summer job has slowly begun now (therefore the few blog posts lately) and I don’t think much will happen the upcoming weeks (except for Coldplay~ ♥)… I mean, I spent yesterday only re-playing “Ôkami” beccause what else is there to do when it’s raining the whole day? Today, I’m gonna continue drawing on my Zelda doujin (which will never be finished) because it was such a long time ago I drew something “for real”. 🙂

Breath of the Wild

– Warning for massive fangirl post –


zelda-breath-of-the-wild-logo-jp-656x328

AM I THE ONLY ONE EXCITED FOR THE NEW ZELDA GAME?! Look how   g o r g e o u s   it is! It seems like Nintendo is going with a water painting theme like they did for “Skyward Sword” and also it’s got this cartoon-ish look as well, and I looove it! Hyrule has never been this beautiful since Twilight Princess, I swear. After watching a few previews from E3 the other day, my fangirl feelings for the Zelda games began to come alive again and… just… I wanna explore this world. It looks so peaceful, but we all know that Hyrule is never peaceful in the games we play. This Hyrule looks so alive though, compared to the previous games. We got deers, bigger birds, fish… and I hope there’ll be some people too. We didn’t get to see any in the previews (expect for the “Old Man” and the monk and Sheikah Ke Nemut I think?), so… I’m excited to see what they all will look like! Will we get Gorons? Zoras? Hyruleans and Gerudos too? I really hope we’ll get to know more about the Sheikahs now since Link actually seem to have this Sheikah Slate from the beginning of the game – which means that Link must have gotten it from a member of the Sheikah clan (if he haven’t found it?) or an actual member of the Sheikahs! But nah, I don’t think he’s a Sheikah, don’t think Nintendo would make him one.

Another right-handed Link it seems.

And we have only seen Link in his blue archer tunic in the trailers, and from E3 we also got to see Link in only shorts (I swear, all the fangirls will die if we can play him in only shorts)… but I’m really curious how his green hero tunic will look like! Because he must have one, right? And also, it seems like you have to think a lot more on your own in “Breath of the Wild” – what you have to eat, wear, equip yourself with and where to go. I like that! Hopefully I will get used to climbing those walls and cliffs, I don’t think I’ve done that in any other video game (except for “The Amazing Spider-Man” for Game Boy when I think about it) and that means you have to walk around mountains and so… but not in this one! And speaking of what Link will look like in different clothes and armour… what will Princess Zelda look like?? I hope it’ll be a mix of the Zeldas from the Oracle series and “A Link to the past“. ♥

From what I could see, this huge landscape of Hyrule will contain a desert, snowy mountains, the Death Mountain, woods and a beach too – which means we’ll get EVERYTHING! How awesome isn’t that?! And from what I heard from a interview on E3, “The higher you get, the colder it’ll get, so you gotta eat the right food to prepare yourself and change your clothes” – which means you gotta think more (like I said above) and I like that! Hyrule’s getting more like the real world! ♥ I’m so glad the Zelda team at Nintendo thought about such small details like that, makes everything much more… fun! 😀

And since Hyrule’s gotten so big this time, it made me wonder if there’ll be a theme song for the Hyrule Field like in the previous games or if there’ll only be bird’s tweets to make it more realistic? To be honest, I think I would miss the theme song, but I would very much enjoy simple nature sounds as well.

And my final question is… where in the Zelda timeline will “Breath of the Wild” be placed? Before “The Wind Waker”? Shortly after “Skyward Sword”? After “The Spirit Tracks”? Before “Twilight Princess” since we saw the Bridge of Eldin (I suppose?)? I’m so curious~ ♥

“Open your eyes, Link…” Will there be a comeback of the “Lens of Truth”? Or does she only want Link to wake up so the game begins? 😛

Jump to 2:56 if you wanna see the first trailer from 2014.

Last summer

Ja, jag är en Zelda nörd och lyssnar på TV-spelsmusik just nu. Man får en speciell sorts känsla av att lyssna på dem. Spänning, stolthet, rädsla, hemtrivsel… I dunno, låter helt knäppt, men lyssna själv så kanske du förstår:

Yes, I’m a Zelda nerd and listening to video game music right now. You get a some kind of special feeling by listening to them. Action, pride, fear, feeling like home… I dunno, sounds really weird, but try to listen for yourself and you might understand  what I mean:

I somras började jag rita ett par sidor till vad jag försökte skulle bli en doujinshi på Skyward Sword, ett av alla Zelda spel. Jag visste förstås att jag aldrig skulle bli klar med den (förmodligen aldrig, eftersom det bara är en hobby), men i brist på annat att skriva om/att visa så visar jag upp de första sidorna som jag hann göra klart. Jag ville få den att bli så lik som spelet, så… ja.

I began drawing a couple of pages last summer on what I was hoping for to become a doujinshi of Skyward Sword, one of many Zelda games. I did realise of course that I would never finish it (probably never, since it’s just a hobby), but of lack of other things to write about/to show, I’ll post these first pages I managed to finish. I wanted it to look just as much as possible like the game, so… yeah.

Hm?? I had finished one more page, but I haven’t scanned it yet..? Oh well. I’ll do that when I have time to, promise. Fixed!
