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!

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!

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.

Don't tell me that after watching this trailer that you don't want to see this movie or don't like Nicholas Sparks. I was so taken by it, I almost wanted to cry. Damn! And then Zac.... OMG!

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!
