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.

 

Healthy treats

Now it’s only three weeks left of this semester, can’t believe how fast the time flies by!
There’s a lot of assignments now in the end and this week and I’ve been eating too much sugar.
So yesterday I made some healthy chocolate balls. I got the recipe from Elin and Linda but changed it a little bit.

  • 20 pitted dates
  • Goji berries
  • Pumpkin seeds
  • Sesame seeds
  • Coconut oil
  • Shredded coconut
  • Oats
  • Cocoa
  • Honey
  • Water
    I put some peanut butter in some, and they were so good!

    I just mix everything together without any measurements, go with your gut! You can roll them in shredded coconut as well.
    They will taste awesome and they are free from white sugar 🙂

I will hug you down

I can’t believe it’s only four weeks left of this semester. My first semester is almost over.
Now, at the end, it’s a lot of stuff to do, so I spend every waking hour thinking about studying and hanging in the library! But I actually really like the library, it’s good energy there. I almost always get a lot of things done, except for today when I had a mental breakdown at the end of the day. But 8-6, I call it a long day.
And except for those days when all I want to do is giggle and behave like a fifteen year old.
But I’m so greatful for all the people I have around me that support me and see the best in me when I sometimes forget to do that. All the love to you.

The week started with that I realized that I kick ass in chemistry. Both in my report and in the mid-exams.
A pretty happy person in this picture.

Two of my study-homies. Shiloh and Bridget. These girls are amazing and always makes me smile.

These two. They are the bomb. So greatful for them!

It’s been a few morningwalks this week, and some with my Elin. The ponds a walk away are so beautiful in the morning. Inner peace and happiness is easy to find there.

The most unnecessary course; COR109. Here we’ve built a bridge out of paper-clips and paper.

Ebba is a cook and she quite often makes me dinner, and other people figured out our secret.
Family dinner at its best.
As you can see Fransisco is not a man to be trusted..

PS. Is it called ”PS” in English? If I think about it, the movie is called ”PS. I love you”. So I guess so.
Any way, you need eight hugs per day to survive. Don’t forget about that. So I will hug you down.
