At 3.30 tomorrow/tonight we’re leaving for our summer house on Öland, and both my niece and nephew will be there this weekend and that’s the best thing I’ve heard all week! But first: I need to pack my stuff.
This 1908 image of women smoking and drinking was intended to be a horrifying glimpse of a post-suffrage future. Now it just looks like an awesome bar.
A friend saw the opportunity and took it when I forgot to log out of facebook last week. I was at a meeting and suddenly a friend asked if I was planning to go to Asia. Apparently I’d decided to skip exchange studies to go backpacking in Asia for a year. It was propably one of the best facebook hijacks I’ve seen, because it looked like something I could write, and loads of people expressed their support before I had the chance to clarify things (and finding out who exactly did it). A friend actually reminded me of it just yesterday, still thinking it was genuine haha.
The bad thing now is that I’d really like to travel! I’ll still go to Birmingham (as long as they accept my second application…) but oh how I want to go travel!!! I’m seriously confused about my life right now, I don’t know what I want to do and I don’t have a certain subject I’m interested in studying and my motivation is getting lower and lower it seems. But everything’ll turn out fine (hopefully).
Tonight a friend and I bought over 500 slices of bread, loads of cheese, cucumbers, milk and chocolate. For SEK 3630 (that’s about £350). Tomorrow our Conference on International Affairs begins, and we’re going to make 800 sandwiches for the people attending it (we bought all the bread of the ‘right’ kind, but it wasn’t enough).
It’s almost midnight and my friend’s picking me up in six hours. It’s time to say Goodnight!
Is it spring in Uppsala yet?
When I woke up today it was snowing, so right now I just hope it will be warmer at Valborg.
oh hi there tumblr! this week is a busy one for me, so i don’t know how much you’ll see of me. perhaps i’ll take some time to set up a queue, and i’ll try to post something, but otherwise i’ll be back next week, whooo!
One of the greatest moments of the film because you can just see Bilbo’s utter resignation like, “Yeah, yeah, I’m dead. I’ll just kneel right here. Okay bye.”
In the last couple of days I’ve almost decided how I’m going to vote in the Swedish general elections in September. Or rather, half an hour or so ago I thought I had made up my mind about voting for the Feminist Initiative, but the Green party is still up there on my list. However, the Green party’s already in the parliament and it would be great to see some more feminism in there as well. I’ll probably decide in the voting booth, as usual.
Although I’ve identified as a feminist for quite some time, during my one and a half years at uni I’ve become much more critical and aware, probably because the many of the people I spend time with are feminists and know so much more than me. It’s quite enlightening.
