A smiling face

One week left of this semester, where did all the weeks go? There’s not enough hours in the day! And today my stress that’s been building up inside caught up with me. I got sick. This sucks. I don’t have time for this. One chemistry report due on Monday, practical exam in biology on Tuesday and an oral presentation on Wednesday that I haven’t even started working on yet.

One of my friends said today that if you are having a bad day and feeling off you should smile a lot because that tricks the body into thinking it’s happy.
So lying in my bed today feeling like shit I realized that I was smiling. Fake it until you make it, no?
I believe she had a point in that. I will carry this with me, thank you!

Smile

Today, I choose joy.

Today me and Ebba tried on AcroYoga, and it was so much fun!
It was really hard and I loved it.
I did not take any pictures, but next time I’m gonna get you some evidence of how awesome we are!

I loved the energy in this and that made me think about that I wanna have good energy in my body. I am not relaxed enough right now and I need to start doing my meditations again, which is really good for my body.
Until next time, here is some inspiration for you guys;

As my roommate would say: ”Stay Classy”.

 

Living the life in Aussieland

People keep asking me how I feel about living here in Australia now, and if I miss home.
When I got here I asked people: ”I wonder how long it will take for me to feel like this is my home?” They said it will take me at least three months. And here I am, three months later, and it still feels like a vacation.
So do I miss home?
No, I can’t say that I do. I miss my mum, Bennie, my friends and maybe my stepdad (but just a little bit), but I really don’t miss it.

You know when you move from one place to another and after a while you sort of forget the old place. How it looked like, what it smelled like, how it made you feel – but I’m not there yet. I call this my home now, but I still remember my old one. In my life I’ve lived approximately two years at every place, that’s how many times I’ve moved.

But, when I sit here in my room and I can hear a skateboard outside my window and I stop to think, ”Is that a train? Are there trains nearby?”
Everyone at my old job knows what I’m talking about, you know when you hear the train go over the rails, that is what a skateboard sounds like.

People say ”reckon” here. A lot. ”Do you reckon?” And Yes, sometimes I get caught with it and say it. Am I almost an australian now?
And the piercing. I got a nose piercing. I am definitely australian.
One thing I can’t say, it just doesn’t work. ”No worries”. I just stutter, I sound like a kid that’s trying to be cool.

To start a whole new life like this is awesome, thrilling and also terrifying. Everything and everyone is new, and I’ve learnt to know so much people since I got here. And they are awesome.
Unfortunately some of them are soon going home as they are only staying for one semester. I’ve made myself a family here and I’m so blessed that I met them!

Motivation.

Last week I was kind of stressing out a bit over all the assignments that are due right now. And I was a bitch. And I stopped believing in myself every other minute.

Then my friend Fredrik, Freppe, Fred, Ahlbeck, Lill-Fredrik, we don’t really know what to call him, asked me to listen to a video. And now I’m listening to it every morning. It’s awesome and gives me motivation.
