Anything else than, I live in a strange country
We sat on the porch, eating lunch, enjoying the sunshine in a top tank and bare foot
Just saying,,, spring in Sweden is one odd thing, and amazing
Today is that kind of day that make me wonder,,, why on earth did I got out of bed?
I like winter, nothing wrong with that, but this gray dark day is hard to deal with. Its like someone puts a hat on your head and drags it down over your eyes. Not a chance to see a glimt of the sky. Just gray.
How to survive?
Well have no choice so I guess its just keep on walking, one day at the time. It will change.
On the 22 of december it is the darkest day, and it last for up to 3 days. But imagine, after that it start to change.
You dont see it untill after a couple of weeks. But then you suddenly realize its a bit brighter, just a tiny bit brighter, but it matter, it matter so much.
That is the moment when I can actually start to see the differens every week. One minut of extra daylight is like winning the lottery.
I think we all try to keep occupied in different ways to go through this time. I listen to books, I play games, I look at a good documentary or a great serie. Make time go a bit faster. The worst feeling in all of this is that of being tired all day long.
I sleep but I never feel like I can sleep enough.
Enough with complain about the wheater.
So typical Swedish,,, we talk about the wheater, its always a subject to start a chat with, aint that odd, the weather are a big thing for us.
Typical Swedish, I dont know if there is so much that truly are typical about us. They say we are cold people, I dont think so, we are reserved but with huge hearts.
They say we are beautiful, well yes of course,, we are Swedish, LoL.
They say we eat strange food? Well if you think rotten fish is strange, ya then we eat strange food.
They say that we are passively aggresive, get angry, mutter but never start a fight, and that if there is a quarrel, we withdraw, hmmm well not all but a lot of us defenitily act this way.
They say, we do not like close contact. So sitting next to someone on the bus when there is a vacant seat behind is quite unthinkable. You do not want to be classified as a nerd. And yes it is some truth in that one.
They say that we live after the device “Right should be right” – a mindset we always have with us. Whether it is about small or big issues. And you know, I think its true. We like to do things in the right way, we like to make everyone be part of desicions, we live in a democrazy, and that I think shows on the way we act.
I can keep on about “they say” but the list will be to long. Its actually fun to listen to how people from other countries think about us. In something I can totaly agree, but in others I feel like a big ????
See now I got to spend a couple of minutes in front of computer and that made my gray dark day go a little bit faster.
show, hej då, bye bye, tada and so on,,,
