New Years Eve

Image
It's new years eve today! Woop, woop! LOL.

I wanted to show you guys my last outfit of the year. Well, I'll might put on a dress later tonight. Maybe. I am not going anywhere, I am just going to be at home with my mom. Nothing special. I am going to watch American Dreamz on TV later. I have never seen the whole film. I have seen it before but not the whole movie because I was so tired that I fell asleep.


Talking about movies, I watched a movie earlier on TV starring Danielle Panabaker, Mom at Sixteen. I have seen it before. Anyway, when she gave her baby to her teachers I wanted to cry as much as I did. I had to fight to keep away those tears.

The Vampire Diaries

Image
I have a new favorite tv-series, The Vampire Diaries. Like most shows that I don't like and then start to watch, I was too lazy to change the channel. Well, I was fixing my hair while watching it so I wanted to do that before I changed the channel. I was going to do that when I was done but it got so thrilling that I kept watching. Elena got kidnapped but Rose and some. Stefan and Damon got help from Bonnie to find out where Rose had taken Elena. I didn't watch the whole episode because I had to leave which made me kind of sad because I wanted to know what was going to happen. So since Monday I have been a The Vampire Diaries fan. Oooo, I am even watching it right now but it is almost over.

Later - after The Vampire Diaries - I am going to watch a DVD because yesterday my mom and I rented a few DVD's. We are going to watch Charlie St. Cloud. Yesterday at the video store right before my mom was going to the cash register I saw a Charlie St. Cloud DVD and grabbed it. I told …

Don't Brag Part II

Seriously, DON'T BRAG! It's ugly. If you do it while you're with me I will slap you on the cheek. No I am just kidding. Or am I? Are you willing to take that chance? LOL, but seriously when someone who is talking to me starts to brag my immediate reatcion is to tell them to shut up, want to walk out the room or slap him or her on the cheek.

Another ugly way to brag is to say "Oh, I have so many cheerleading trofé's that I don't know what to do with them. Damn!". Like, no! Child please don't even go there. People behave! Behave. If you don't know how to behave, don't open your mouth. Please.

Don't Brag, It's NEVER Classy

God, I hate when people brag! It is SO not classy. It's like, people don't - it's never classy! NEVER! What makes it even more not classy is when someone says "I don't wanna brag but....". I mean skip those five words and say what you're gonna say. Like please, you can at least class it up a little bit. God.

I hate when people use the "but" word when they are going to say something. For exmple "I don't wanna be mean but girl you are so ugly I can't even look at you right now". Okay, maybe that was a bad exemple but you get my point. I mean, don't use "but". Be a man or a woman and stand for what you are going to say. Don't try to embellishthe situationwith the word "but". Never classy and never makes the situation better. In the end you are still a jerk. That's not how a lady acts or a gentlemen. People have some manners!

I just wanted to show you guys a picture of my glöggcheesecake. Everybody said it was good but I thought it was kind of blend. I hope that they ment what they said and not that they just said that it tasted good so my feeling wouldn't get hurt.

On Repeat

Today is going to be alittle bit like yesterday. Well, without the cleaning just more cooking and baking. I have to make the glögg cheesecake, the pie we are goin´g to have at home, bread flavoured with wort, saffronbiscotti, cinnamon hearts (cookies) and a few other things. Yum, yum, yum! Last night I worte everything down on post-its so that I wouldn't forget anything. That would be embarrassing. Really embarrassing.

Later I am going to make a video and post it on youtube. Just a video where I wish you all a merry Christmas and a happy new year. Nothing more.

The 22nd

What is there to do today? Hehehe. I have cleaned my room (it has to be ince for Christmas) and done some laundry. Some is an understatement because I washed all the clothes in my laundry basket. That might sound like alot but it is reall not (LOL, that rhymes). Well see it how you want but the washbasinarefilled withmy clothes. I guess mom has to wait until tomorrow if she wants to wash anything.

Tomorrow I am going to bake. I am going to make the dessert for Christmas Eve dinner and alot of the Christmas foos we are going to have at home. I am making a glögg cheesecake for the Christmas Eve dinner which means I have to make the gingerbread today. I am using gingearbread as the cake base. Yummy! It is more Christmasie to use gingerbread rather than using digestive crackers. Don't you agree?

Three Days To Go

OMG! Yeah! Winter vacation! Christmas in three days. Yes, yes and yes!

Right now I am sitting here and writing a short story for my NYU application. LOL, I am so bad because I am took a short story that I had to write for my English B course and just adding some. Well, a few pages. When I wrote the short story the first time I didn't feel like it was done, like there was more to it but I was only allowed to write two pages. Now I have my chance to finish it propperly.

Today in school we played a game involving candy. The class got divied into groups of four or five. In the middle of the table there was a few candy pieces. The gamewas thatyouwould strikea dice.One wouldhit asix andthenwhen youhita sixyou got totakea candy piece. In my gropu it was Linda, Anton, Fred, Niklas and (of course) myself.

Last 'Real' Day

Today is the real last school day before the holidays. Thank God for that! Amen. I have school tomorrow too but that is just one and a half hour. Which feels totaly unnecessary. I mean it is just fika, listening to the headmaster saying something and his musical tie and then taking to our mentors. Blah, blah, blah. Unnecessary, but I am going because I am a good girl. Why?!

I have to make lunch soon so because I start at 12:15 today and I have to take a train in about 70 minutes. I might blog some more to night. I don't know.

I just want to say thank you to all my new readers. Keep reading everyday and read HIH!

your writer, Erika

Sunday Afternoon

I have made some more Christmas candy. Icechocolate and Mozart balls. The nougat I used for the Mozart balls I made myself, but that was a few weeks ago. Yum, yum, yum! I am going to make some more candy later this week and some other things.

I have three more days left of school and then it no school for about three weeks. Yeah! A weel needed break. Woop, woop!

Right now I am writing a dramatic story for my NYU application. I am wrting about the first the of high school. My first day of high school. I have made some things up to make it more interseting - not that I really too. I really love that the short story has to be with dubble spacing. Woop, woop! What I mean is that six pages is not so much then.

My Day

Image
Yesterday I went to school. Today I was home from school. When I came home from school yesterday, after I ate lunch and cleaned my room, I just felt like I was done, finished, whatever. So I just sat on the couch and watched The Ellen DeGeneres Show and some other TV shows. I almost fell asleep while watching According To Jim. Then two cups of coffe gave me some energy. Well needed energy.

Today I went to a doctor somewhere off (somewhere I have never been before) and then my mom thought it would be a good idea (and the doctor that I saw this morning) to make an appointment at my doctor. So my mom did that. After that we (my mom and I) ate lunch at this local resturant (it is in the same building as the doctor that I usally go to). It is a new resturant so I had never been there before. The food was good. Really good. It was buffé and it was kind of middle eastern food. Yum. Haha.
After that I was tired so I just sat in the couch for like two hours watching Seventh Heaven and The Elle…

Mixed Update

Image
Yesterday my mom and I made this gingerbread house from the dough that I made a few weeks ago. It is really easy to make your own gingerbread dough. I have made my own dough for the last few years. I love the taste of it when it is warm. Yum! LOL.




Oh, last weekend my mom and I wnet shopping in Sollentuna Centurm. I got some thing that I needed and we sat down for coffe (well, my mom had coffe and I had a cup of chai-latte). Yum, I just LOVE chai-latte. We went to Wayne's Coffe (which I love), but I think I prefer Espresso House's chai-latte. It just tastes more. You know what I mean?


After that when we came home, no the day after - last Sunday - we made lussebullar. Yum, yum, yum! You have to have lussebullar for Lucia. Not just for Lucia for Christmas. It's a must! It is! Hehehe.




Look what I made today. To be honest I started on it two days ago and finished it today since I was home from school yesterday. I am quit pleased with it. Oh, if you wonder what it says on the fo…

Home

Today I am home from school because I had some fever when I woke up today. Plus I had a sore throat. I could go to school but I feel that I should stay home today and rest so that I don't get unnessecary sick because it is Christmas soon and on Saturday Linda and I are swapping Christmas presents so I want to be well enough fo that. Also my mom told me that it is better if I stay home today.

Today I am not going to do much since I am a bit sick. Well, I might work some college applictaions. Ok, not some, just one because the deadline is January 1st - less than a month. The rest of them have a dealine in April, so I can just chill with them for now. I also have some homework that are due next semester. Blä, but if I want good grade I better do them now. I have already started on my project plan for my cook book so I can chill a little bit with that one too but not too much.

Lucia

Today's is Lucia. Yeah! Weird enough the Lucia celebration at my school is tomorrow because there was no music teacher available today. It was something like that. Anyway I am not going because it is at 8:30 AM and I don't start until 12:15 PM so I don't see the point. I want to but no.

So, since it is Lucia today I was wearing a white dress, white tights and a red ribbon around my waist. I looked just like a Lucia. Hehehe. Did you know - 'cause maybe I have told you - that in third grade I was the Lucia at my school? If you didn't know, well, now you do.

Movie Night

Image
Today during my lunch hour I rented two DVD. A Christmas Carol and Ramona and Beezus. So in a while I am going to watch them with my mom. I can't wait. I have wanted to see A Christmas Carol since it came out two years ago and I have wanted to see Ramona and Beezus since last summer. Tonight is the night. LOL.
I think that I am going to rent another movie tomorrow when I have to return the DVD's. Maybe Mean Girls 2 or Anothers Cinderella Story: Once Upon a Song. I don't know. They had other movies that I also want to see.

A Friend For Life

Today in school Linda and I wrote in each others' year book. First I just blanked and didn't know what to write since it is not a common thing to write in each others year book in Sweden. I thought it would be a fun thing to do since it is our senior year and all. A memory for life.

First I didn't know what to write, so I wrote "I don't know what to write" because that usally get me started. So it did. I started writing about when we first met (almost two and a half years ago). I hated that week, well not hated but it felt kind of unecessary and I am sure she felt the same way. It was neccasary in one way, we met.

Open House

Thank god for Fridays, I can tell you that. Tomorrow I have to go to school again. Okay, okay there is nothing I have to do. No one is making me. I want to. My school is haveing an open house tomorrow and I voleunteered to help out. LOL, "volunteered" makes me sound like some kind of saint, like a good girl - which I am. Anyway, everyone (every student) whp helps out get a cinema ticket. So.... that is why I am helping out. I wonder who else is going to help out. I mean apart from myself and three of my classmates. Maybe someone cute (fingers crossed). LOL, I am just going to be there for two out of four hours tomorrow.

December

It is finally December. 23 days to go. LOL! Are you excited for Christmas? I am super duper! Yeah baby.

Are you doing anything special this weekend? I am going to help out at the open house at my school on Saturday. Plus I am going to bake some with my mom. On Sunday I am going to the Christmas fair in the Old Town and probably the one in Kungsträdgården. I always go to the one in the Old Town. It is kind of an tradition.
Maybe I will upload some picture of the candy and cookie that I will bake with my mom.

Have a great evening!

USA!

LOL! Today we had to hold our speech in English C. It was ok. I got really nervous for some reason. I don't nervous. Nervous is not my thing.
There was this one girl, Frida, who held a speech about her experince as an exchange student in USA last year. She was somewhere in Washington. The state Washington not DC. Her speech made me realise just how much I want to study in USA. Not in Sweden anyway, so England or USA. USA preferably plus I am not going to apply to any schools in the UK. So tomorrow I am going to apply to UCLA. Yeah, wish me good luck!

Frida also showed her year book from the high school she went to and told stories about the family she staied with. They were like super into Jesus (nothing wrong with that), so Frida had to go to church with them every Sunday for the whole year she was there. She said that she did not get along with them and that she snuck out in the middle of the night a few times. I think it sound like so much fun.

Just Chilling at Home

I think I am going to do some Christmas decorating later on or maybe tomorrow before I go to Cornelias christianing. Not later than tomorrow. It is first in Advent tomorrow and you can't have an Advent without the house being decorated with Christmas ornaments. It just won't due. What you think? When do you start to decorate for Christmas? Me, in time for first in Advent. No later than that, no matter what my mom says. LOL.

Right now I am watching The Grinch with my mom. I love that movie. Ok, maybe not love but it is a good movie. It is one of those movies you have to see around Christmas. It is not Christmas now I know but it is first in Advent tomorrow. I am not watching it on DVD it is on TV, I don't like the movie so much that I want the DVD. Why should I buy on DVD? I mean it is on TV a few times every year around Christmas.

Baking On A Friday Night

Friday! OMG, I have been waitin for you all week long. You have no idea! Hehe.

Right now I am  blogging (duh, of course), washing some clothes and baking. The baking part is what I have been waiting for all week long. Baking, yeah and, aaa, it smells so good! I love Christmas, hihihi. Later I am going to make gingerbread dough so that I can make gingerbread maybe tomorrow or on Sunday. I don't know I will have to see because I am going to a Christaning on Sunday.

Just Your Normal Day at School

First of all, Happy Thanksgiving or glad tacksägelsedag as you say in Swedish but no one celebrates thanksgiving in Sweden. Ok, maybe if you are American, but no one I know celebrates it.

Today was a both good and bad day in school. The first lesson was cancled and no one in my class had been infromed about it. There was a missunderstanding with my teacher and the lady who makes the schedules. Fun. Not. I could have slept another hour this morning. It is not like I enjoy waking up at six am. I don't jump out of bed with a smile on my face and scream at the top of my lungs "Yeah, I get to go to school today!". Don't get me wrong, I enjoy school but I like to be informed if a class is cancled. Wouldn't you?

Now to the good part. You know that I had finals in Swedish last week. You know, the essay that I had five hours to write but I only sat for two and a half hours. Do you remember? Anyway, I got MVG on my essay! Yeah, ME! LOL, London Tipton refrence. MVG is the h…

Christmas Is Almost Here

Image
Almost, but why can't it be here now. I love Christmas! It is the greatest time of the year! It is, I am not just quoting that song. Christmas! Hehehe.
Today in school when Linda and I went to ICA I took two Christmas calenders. All that is missing now is the chocolate Christmas calender. One year I had three chocolate calenders. On year I had a Barbie chocolate calender. Hhihi, Barbie. I was like six or something. I remember thinking it was so cool that I had a Barbie chocolate calender.

Las Vegas 2014, Here We Come!

We = Linda and I

As I know I have mentioned before Linda and I want to to go Vegas when we both have turned 21, which will be in 2014. Linda's birthday is on January 20th and mine is April 6th. So anytime after my birthday we can go to Vegas.

We talked about out Vegas trip today in school. Planned some things. Ok, we didn't plan things - We are not controll freaks. We just talked about it. We said that we were going to book a suit. Like a real nice suit. Linda said that she doens't want to fly to Vegas because of some tringle. I thought she was stalking about the Bermuda tringle and itsn't that tringle in the Carribean? So I was like "What if I go to school in NY? I have heard that is takes about 5 hours and 30 minutes to fly from LA to NY." She said "Ok, we can fly to somewhere near Vegas." LOL, we're so funny.

We have to go to Vegas! We Just have to, Linda don't back out!

I Want To Bake

Image
Hihihi, my new cook book arrived today. Well it is not my as in I wrote it but it is mine as in I bought it. I am so excited, I just want to bake.  RIGHT NOW! Oh, I just want to correct something I wrote yesterday: It is not the-gingerbread-cookie-day next Friday. It is the Friday after that. I am still going to make gingerbread dough on Friday.

Oh, love my psychology teacher. I mean she is nice. We have these two huge assignment that we have to hand in on Friday but she postponed the date until Decmber 5th. Thank you so much because now I don't have to stress so much about the other assignments. Like right now I am (watch TV, LOL, it is One Tree Hill - the episode when Brooke is trying to save Jamie because he is stuck in a car and that care gets pushed into the river by an other car. Now that I think about it, a lot of thing has happened on that bridge in OTH.) working on my English C speech that I have to hold next Monday. It has to be five minutes, just like the speech for the…

Gingerbread

OMG, I can't believe that in a week (next Sunday) it is first in Advent. OMG, OMG, OMG! Iiiip! I am excited. Soon it will be Christmas. It is only a month left on Thursday. A month! Can you believe it? Time just flies by.

I have deciced to make the gingerbread dough on Friday and depending on how much dough I will make I might bake some gingerbread cookies for my class the following Friday because it is "the-gingerbread-cookie-day". I always have so much dough left over so why not make cookies for my classmates. I am sure they will appreciate it. I mean 1) everyone love gingerbread cookies (except Agnes because she is allergic and 2) we leave school at four o'clock on Fridays. So after lunch I will put out my cookies on the teachers desk and write something on the board so that they know that they are allowed to eat the cookies.

Just a Regular Saturday

Image
I have a new song of the moment. Domino by Jessie J. I heard it today while I was trying on clothes at an H&M store in Stockholm. I was like "Damn, who is this? AWESOME song!". So when I got home (not exactly when I got home) I youtubed the song and now it is blasting through my (my moms' if I am going to be correct) speekers. Yeah!

Except from trying on clothes at H&M, I bought the new issue of Elle Mat & Vin (Elle Food & Wine). I saw it yesterday at Pressbyrån, but I couldn't buy it because I didn't have my wallet with me. I was during the lunch hour in school and I don't bring my wallet to school incase you know, someone snatch it.

A Little Catching Up

What's up my peeps? OMG, I know. I have just been busy with school but I am going to try to blog more. I promise.

Anyway, have you have a nice week? Will you do something special or anything fun tonigh/ this weekend? I am going to watch Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows Part 2 on DVD with my mom. It got released on DVD two days ago. I pre-orded it this Monday and I got this Wednesday - the same day it got released. I call that service! I also orded a cookbook but is was backorded.


Here are a few pictures of my new pumps. I showed them in a video that I posted a few days ago but the lighting is so bad that you can barely see them. Here are a few pictures so that you can fully admire them.




Sparkly right? I will be the hottest girl this Christmas! LOL. When I put them on I am taller then my mom. True story.

Today In School

Today all I had was P.E. Yeah! NOT! P.E is not my cup of tea, what I mean is that I prefer to do any kind of physical excersie on my own. Maybe with friends but not in school. OMG, it is so boring when you HAVE TO do it and beacsue you want to do it. Yeah, yeah.

My friend Linda has inspired me. Yeah, she is a smart cookie. LOL. Yesterday I opened a document in word where I wrote down all the information for all of the different college's and universities that I am (so far) planning to apply to. She has done that and I thought was a good idea plus then I don't have to google information all the time. So annoying and time consuming.

Today during lunch 10C had a concert in the cafeteria. So when I got too school I listen a little bit. A little bit beacuse Linda had to go to the computers to print something. Not that I had to go with her but I am a good friend. She would probably done the same thing if I needed to print something.
Sadly we couldn't stay for the whole concert b…

Last Friday Night

Last night incase you were wondering.

Yesterday I went and saw The Three Muskerters with my mom. Awesome movie! I recomend it to anyone who wants to see a good movie. Plus, Logan Lerman! LOL, Orlando Bloom stars in the movie too. He is one of the bad guys.

Enough about hot looking guys. Not that I think Orlando is hot. He's good looking - obviously - but Logan is more my type (in terms of looks).

Now I am sitting here listening to some music (mostly RNB and HIP HOP) and studying for a test I have on Monday (cross you fingers and wish that I will get MVG, an A). The test is in psycology. It is not that hard, I hope.

Halv Åtta Hos Mig

Eight thirty at my place, incase you were wondering what the title means.

Anyway, I was sitting here minding my own buisness, doing my homework when my phone rang. I was like "Who is calling me now?". I looked at the number on the screen thinking it was someone I am sure of that I have not given my phone number but I answered it anyway.

Guess who it was? It was not the person whom I thought is was. It was no one I know. It was drum roll please...... Someone from TV4. Explanation is one of the major TV stations in Sweden and it first started airing in 1990. Oh, why did they call me? Well, earlier this year I sent in an application to be on their TV show 'Halv Åtta Hos Mig' (a cooking show). Now, this woman was calling around to people who have sent in applications and see if they are interesting enough (fun enough personallity) to be on the show. She said that she might call be back to schedule a casting. I have my fingers crossed!

Photoshoot With SollentunaRevyn

I thought you might want to know how the "photoshoot" with SollentunaRevyn went. In case you don't, well then you don't have to read this post. Hehe.

The photoshoot went smoodly. Catherine and I were supposed to be creative directors, tell the actors how to pose and so on but the director of the play basicly did our job. She was like "Pose like this", "Do this with your hands" and so on and so on. So Catherine and I just stood there. I told one actress to smile more because it is supposed to be a comedy. She just snassed me (ok, maybe she didn't snass me but anyway), and said "Well, I thought since this costume is more serious I should look serious."

We weren't there for more than about 40 minutes. It was ok. I brought the t-shirt that I altered to show my teacher. She liked it.

My Weekend

Image
So, what have you all been doing this weekend? I am sorry that I haven't blogged much. Yesterday I had that photoshoot with SollentunaRevyn. That was at 5 PM, but before that I worked on my college application and I went to Stinsen to do some shopping. Hihihi.

Oh, I want to show you what I did yesterday morning and this morning. Yesterday morning I altered a t-shirt, all by myself. I am so proud. Anyway. This past week in school us graphic commincation girls have been doing t-shirt prints. I made a t-shirt with my name on it and my birth year. The t-shirt was a size small but still too big for me, so I altered it. The before picture is of a t-shirt in a size medium, but my t-shirt looked like that, just a size smaller.




I am pretty satisfied with the result. I never thought the t-shirt would turn out the great. Hahaha. No but seriously. Ijust tooka t-shirtin the closetand put iton top of other the t-shirt.Then I tookjustamarkerandmarkedwhere Iwouldsew.Assimple as that, in caseyou&…

Halloween

Today we had our finals in Swedish. Well, the first part - the speech. I did alright except that when Magnus (a guy in our class who timed us) made the four minute sign I got a little nervous and look at my paper - I just looked at it for confidence, not to read the text - I forgot like one line and when I remembered what I forgot I already started saying something elese so I could not say what I forgot. My teacher said I did alright and thate she noticed that I was well, prepared. So if I get an MVG on the essay I will probably get MVG in Swedish B. Voila! Hehehe.

Our teacher started crying after Katja's speech beacuse she spoke about a friend whom tried to commit suicide. She also read a text from a secrat notebook that her keeps. Really good text. Good speech. Some people chocked me with their speeched. I mean, I didn't expect that from them. Like Adam.

Photoshoot

On Saturday us seniors taking graphic communication are going to photograph SollentunaRevyn because we are making flyers, posters and program sheets for their variety show next spring. Our teacher said that we don't have to come, because it is on a Saturday at 5 PM. Those who show up will get compensatorytime offanda gift certificateat SFBIO. That's not so bad. Otherwise I wouldn't go. I just hope that the shoot won't last that long. I mean it is a Saturday, I have better things to do like watching TV. Hahaha.

Have you ever been to a REAL photoshoot? By real I mean something for a magazine, movie, catalouge or you know. Have you?

Today

I am sitting here trying to get some homework done. As I told you earlier this week, I have finals in Swedish on Friday so I have to (I don't have too but I want to) finich my speech today so that I have enough time to memorize it. If you live in Sweden, have you finished your speech? And which texts or pictures from the booklet did you use? I used The Kite Runner from the booklet and the book Queen of Babble by Meg Cabot (I think I have already told you this).

I am going to try to get some more homework done today. I will see how much though because I am going to a friends/ family memeber in the afternoon. We are going to have some coffe and talk about Christmas. Oh, it is not just me and my friend/ family memember, there are other people too. Hehehe. I am not thrilled by what has been decieded about Christmas but I guess it is run by democracy and I have to followthematterhas been decided. Crule. No, I shouldn't be bratty about this.

Earlier this week I donated some old (but still in a very good conditon) clothes to the Red Cross. I do that sometimes. Now and then. Now, I am looking for more clothes that I don't need/ don't use anymore that I can donate. In case I find enough clothes I will donate them during the fall break. I have school next week and too much homework to go to the Red Cross before or after school.

I am totally obessed with Lil' Wayne's How To Love. I L-O-V-E that song! Damn! I heard Bieber's version first and fell in love with it. Now, I love both versions. I have to listen to Demi's version too. Probably great too. That girl has voice to die for!

When I first heard Demi sing I didn't believe my ears. She has a big voice for such a young girl. So so so talented. I am a little bit jealous. Aren't you?

Finals

Blä, I have finals in Swedish next week. I have to hold a speech for five minutes. Not, two, four or seven minutes but for fibve whole minutes. So that is what I am working on right now. It is hard because I have to refer to either two texts, two pictures or a text and a picture. So far I have chosen Queen of Babble by Meg Cabot. I love that book, it it totally amazing and so is Meg. Awesome writer, she is my favorite! I think I am going to choose The Kite Runner as my second text. We got this booklet with a bunch of articles, lyric quotes, excerpts from books and such and we have to choose a text or a picture illustarting a text from the booklet in our speech. I think that The Kite Runner will fit in my speech. I hope my teacher thinks so too.

The finals in Swedish consits of two tests. The speech - which we will have next Friday - and an essay - which we will have in November and on the day of the test we will have five hours two write the essay. Talk about alot of time, hehehe. An…

TOEFL

I received my TOEFL addmissons ticket in the mail yesterday. I thought I was going to get it by email, eh, who cares. I have it now and that's what matters. I am glad that I don't have to be at the test center as early as when I took the SATs'. I have to be there at 8:30. I have never been to the test center before, but I looked it up on google maps when I registered for the test. so I have good idea of where it is located. LOL. I am going to check it out this weekend or so. I have to know where it is before I take the test.

There is this photo file record that I have to fill out, plus I have to attach a photo o myself. I am going to ask my graphic communications' teacher is she can take a picture of me, since it has to be recent and she takes pictures of the whole group anyway.

I started my personal statement essay for my college application last night. It is so hard, I don't know what to write about. On UCLA website there are some tips on how to write a good pers…

My Future Husband

Image
Iiiiiiip! I met Joe Jonas today! I can't believe it. I went to Arlanda Airport today. I took a chance because I was not sure if he was coming today or tomorrow. I checked his facebook this morning and he had posted a video that he had just landed in Lisbon (last night). I assumed that he would be flying from Lisobon to Stockholm. So I after I checked Arlanda Airport's wedsite for international arrivals and saw that the only flights arrving from Lisbon was today at 2:20 PM and tomorrow at the same time.
The plane landed at 2:25 PM and about half an hour later I met Joe. It was surreal. As the time past by I started to think that maybe he is not coming today. I told myself to wait an hour or so, but he came after about half an hour after the plane had landed. Just before Joe came the were these guys in black suits (one of them had headphones) there. I thought that maybe they were there to take care of Joe here in Sweden. I was right. I turned around for a sec and looked at them …

I edited some pictures in school today. The first one is today's picture, the second one our teacher took of us last week and the third one she took the first day we had graphic communication.

.p.s. Now that I am looking at the pictures, the first one kind of look like a poster to some teen chick-flick or what do you say?
