Since I've moved here I've encountered many fairy godmothers. People got each others backs here in a way quite different from Sweden. They have picked me up while crawling on the rock-bottom, provided a little light when I've found myself lost in misty tunnels and the air has slowly started to decrease.. They think in another way, approach life in another way and show love on a daily basis that makes you aware of the gratefulness you should never take for granted. I've experienced that many people here are in touch with themselves and are not afraid to talk about it. Here I have less money but feel more, live more. And that's more worthwhile right there. When I live I don't have coffees with friends, drinks in the evening and generally spend time with people and do things, that's just details in my everyday life. When I live I approach what I dream of.
Jesus lord almighty, heatwave in Lisbon today. Gotta start checking the forecast from now on,these legs are furry! (under-estimated the weather gods and sat in the sun at Marques in full workout gear suited for wintertime, bloody dripping down my neck!). Tomorrow I'll be the one in bikini covered in olive oil. Sunbathing-mania season has begun!Yahh mama!
Morning! Slept about 2 mins as I was distracted by stuff such as the cable TV (!!!!!), getting emotional over the joy for my loved ones back in Sweden (love love love), thinking about the future (thoughts that conveniently enough re-appear around ridiculous o'clock every night), snuggling with the doggy (my valentine) and this morning I woke up to an empty gas bottle.
I don't have the possibility to get a new one until 12 days.
. . . . . . . .
We have a problem. How does one cook when one does not have any gas to the stove?
(the title in Google Translate: hioflingonberriesSvejwoods. If you're Swedish this is probably the funniest thing you've ever heard, if your not then this probably makes very little sense).
Snuggling with the radiator underneath my leopard blanket (cool points?) after a skypedate with mommy-dearest. Currently butt-on-sofa shaking along with "Shake it like a polaroid picture" on MTV (a party-moment that was slightly ruined by Berlin's "Take my breath away" just now). Don't get me wrong, 90s love songs in my heart forever etc, but they're not exactly party starters..
Anyhow, what are we doing today? WE ARE SURFING THE INTERWEBZ! Just got cable TV/internet installed and have spent the past week surfing in a frenzy (and dreamt of internet while at work. Kinda like longing after a lover.. #pathetic). I've also spent the week zapping through all FIVETHOUSANDGAZILLION channels I'm sporting now. DISCOVERY CHANNEL BABY!!!
(Goo Goo Doll "Iris" just came on, MTV's on a roll! Downloading old love tunes like crazy).
I dont want the world to see me, cause I don't think that they'd understand. Aww, gives you goosebumps, no? *reminiscing*
Right so me, the little guy and the flem in my throat are gonna go on a multi-date in the sun now. In that way I won't be feeling guilty for spending the rest of the day online. He he he.
And so we're rocking another friday along with a clear sunny sky, atlantic breezes and smiles that can break faces in halves. Yesterday I faced some stress that almost made me make drastic decisions, I have GOT to practice not to act when I'm stressed.. always always always wait! Honestly.
My oh my, did we ride our bicycle a little too far into the woods there for a second? A month without internet is a month where time stands still and the universe is out of order. During this period when all seemed upside down it actually was. I've hugged my family on the other side of the continent, almost fallen in love, moved (again), been broke twice (because of previous point) partied like a rockstar (and realized I'm no longer 18), come to terms with important things about used-to-be important people. Amongst other stuff.
