Nytt år och nya möjligheter.
2016 var ett helt okej år, några super toppar har det varit så som att bli antagen till att studera i Oxford och lärt känna massa nya underbara människor. Mindre roliga saker som det gångna året fört med sig är saker som missade möjligheter och heartbreak.
Men jag rester mig starkare än någonsin och är mer bekväm med mig själv än någonsin! 2017 ska bli mitt år och jag ska göra allt jag kan för att uppnå de drömmar och mål jag har. Vad de är och hur det kommer gå får jag se.
Det är en härlig resa som händer just nu och den kallas för Livet.
Been home now for a week and it feels so good to be with my family and see my friends again. I have missed them all so much. ❤
The flight home went okey, no rough airholes haha. So that was good, listned to music all the way and my mom and brother where at the airport to pick me up. Best feeling to see them there.
Since then, christmas has passed and it has been great, the food, the gifts and the company have all been great. I got a small speaker and a handbage among with some other things.
Now I have been visiting my sweet best friend Johanna and her bf Philip for two days. So amazing to see her and spend time with her again, love to come here and just hang with them and there friends here in Stockholm.
I have five more week of christmas break and during these weeks I will finish puttning up all the pics and storys I have from the passed semester. So be patient, cus’ pics are coming!
Week 12 has arrived and that means it is time for essays and exams. Final week of fall semester at OBU and it has been amazing! This week is killing me though, it is so tough and I am not at all used to having a week of exams like this. So it is really a challenge, but I finished my essay on Sunday and today me and my group finished the poster for our poster-presentation. Which means I really only have to do the presentation and then the two exams and I am done!
It will be so nice when this week is over and I finally can just rest, spend time with friends here and enjoy the last days before going home for Christmas. I am really sad some people are leaving and not coming back next semester but I still have some of the great people here when I return so it will be okey. I will really enjoy Christmas break though, 6 weeks off will be delightful after the stress the last month has given me.
But – not done yet, so time to go back to the books. Done in 4 day!!
I had my lovely friend Matilda over for a few days in the beginning of November. We started her stay with a day at uni, I needed to finish a paper and so did she, perfect! After that we manage to do all kinds of stuff like, went out for a party night, went to celebrate Bonfire night and see a huge firework. We also did one day in London and got to see Big Ben, London eye, Trafalgar square, Oxford Street and many more places. We had a great time and I am so glad she could come and visit me, I really appreciated it. ^^
Gonna try to get up pictures from the last weeks. May not write so much but a picture are suppose to say more than a 1000 words so hoping for that now. ^^
So it was my 25 birthday at the end of October and I had a small (30 people) party in my flat. It was so much fun and I am so glad I got to celebrate that day with all the amazing people that I have gotten to know so far here in Oxford. I am so blessed to have so many beautiful people in my life, you all bring me so much joy! Thank you Annika for the mug and the great idea of letting everyone at the party sign it, will be a memory for life.

I’m still alive!
Just keeping myself to busy or Uni is keeping me busy. Have had one paper due per week since week 2, now it is time to get to the heavy stuff though. It’s time for the last exams and essays in two weeks, so will not really get any more free time until that is done.
But even though I’m tired, stressen and exhausted, I really do love it here. It is so fun and I have learn so much so far from being here. That I’m so happy and glad that I get to stay for one more semester, so will only be going home to Sweden for Christmas-break then it is back to Oxford and Brookes at the end of Januari. This is such a great experience and opportunity that I wanna get as much out of it as possible and by staying for a whole year. I will really be able to get good English language and experience to carry with me for the rest of my life, what ever I will be doing.
For now that will be all, just got home from Uni after been there 9 am-9 pm. So now it is time for bed, I think I really deserve it at least. Picture is a typical day for me at the moment. #studentlife
It’s been a few hectic weeks now, visit from my parents, then birthday weekend, a friend over from Sweden and on top of it all I been sick on and off. Now I’m okay with the sickness, just little cough but otherwise I’m fine. Though it’s been so stressfull to do everything, every free minute I had I’ve been studying. Having one paper due per week it tough, I’m not used to it and then to have other stuff to do as well and wanting to spend time with my family and friends who come and visit. It’s exhausted in the end but also the best thing ever.
I’ve had so good times with them all, doing so much sightseeing, shopping and eating great food while hanging out with some of the best people I have in my life fills up the battery but only so much.
Now I’m looking forward to next week when I only have school and me to think about. It will be so nice to have time to rest and just do nothing in the evenings haha. Sounding like an old lady, but I’m looking forward to it so much, I really need it. But first, going to Edinburgh this weekend haha. Good luck to me!
When we finally settled down in Oxford, we went out for dinner at a really nice Italian restaurant. Gluten free pasta and pizza, I got the Pasta Carbonara (gf) and it was the best ever. The place is called La Cusina.
