Rainy Midsummers Eve 2015 //
A friend of ours were hosting a giant celebration somewhere in the Swedish country side and we took a bus out to nowhere.
So there we were, all alone on a long unknown road with no clue what so ever where to go - combined with unstable 3G connection and dying cellphones. So we started walking in the direction the by-passing, power walking lady told us it might be, blissfully unaware that the walk from the bus stop to the house would turn out to be around 5k. But even though we complained and swore when we finally got to the party, I have to admit it was quiet nice walking in the rain with my love, stop to pick flowers from the roadside and sing cheesy midsummer songs out loud.
Gig, Jönköping 2014 //
Last summer my grandmother passed away, and for some reason the funeral was scheduled for the same day as one of my gigs.
Of course I was able to attend both, since the gig was later in the evening, but it wasn't without a slight melancholy me and my boyfriend headed north in the afternoon, post-funeral. We got there, checked in to the hotel and then went to get some snack and I ended up crying over the coffee, feeling exhausted about the whole thing.
The gig was quiet a fail. The organizers hadn't done particulary well with the advertisement so a third if the audience consisted of my boyfriend. Lol. But the stage was on this raft out in the water of this big lake, and I sang my sad heart out into the twilight skies and afterwards we just laughed at the whole thing and cuddled up in each others arms.
Summer apartment, Lund 2013 //
One summer when I was back living my parents again I got sick and tired of it, went online and found the prettiest apartment in a nearby city called Lund. So I borrowed the car, drove down there and signed up for a summer contract (the girl who lived there was a student). Everybody thought I was being weird and told me it was unnecessary, but to me it was the best thing. It was 18 square meter on the seventh floor with a tiny balcony that looked out over a lush courtyard. I mostly spend my days on that balcony eating pasta and drinking rosé wine and I will always remember that summer as the Summer in Lund.
Adventurous date 2014 //
I met my boyfriend in the very beginning of last summer and since we're both doers we did a lot of fun things to get to know each other. So this one time we started off the day by driving down to a waterfall where we walked the surroundings and took selfies in front of the splashing water and I kept thinking that it was so easy to just be with him. After that we continued to Stenshuvud where we took a daytime skinny dip in the ocean, sunbathed on the rocks and jumped from stone to stone all across the beach. We finished off the day with the most delicious dinner and now that I think back on it, it was probably one of the best days we've had together so far.
Holiday in the US, 2012 //
Me and my parents went to the US for three weeks and visited New York, San Fransisco and Los Angeles. I love to go on vacation for
so long, since it almost stops feeling like vacation and instead, all of a sudden, it just feels like everyday life. I think this selfie is taken in our hotel bathroom in Los Angeles on my name-day, right before we took off to Universal Studios and had the most amazing day.
Summer 2015 //
This pic doesn't represent any specific happening, it's just a snapchat from one of my late night summer walks this year. I havn't really been doing anything overly exciting this summer, but that's something I've come to value. This summer feels like a long wait for the admission letter, and I'm starting to accept that. Because that is life. It's full of different stages that we need to go through to be able to become something else, something better. So for now, most of the time, I'm here in my apartment with a person I love, waiting for the rest of my life to begin. And even though the whole thing is nerve wrecking and makes me almost unbearable restless from time to time, this will also form a memory I will cherish in the future.
