Last semester

Today my last semester at this University starts, or at least the last planed semester. I am thinking about taking one more semester at uni, maybe not this university. I am going to try and get a meeting with my student counselor and look at the course I want to take.

One of the songs that motivates me right now.

I only have afternoon lectures today, two of them. And the last one ends at six this evening, which means I won’t be home until earliest 7. It’s going to be a long day and I am kind of nervous. This might sound strange, I mean this is my uni, where I already gone for four semesters. But since I went my 5th semester abroad and now I am back here in Sweden, it feels kind of weird. I mean, I am not really the same woman that left Sweden. I feel like I have grown a lot and I know more of what I want in life.

I have always loved my uni, but I loved the Heriot-Watt University as well, and I know I will miss it. But it is really nice to do my last semester here in Sweden. I am looking forward to Autumn and yesterday morning I could almost smell the Autumn in the air. It was cold and crisp. This morning I almost wanted to go inside again because I thought it was so cold, but Zelda was happy just walking and sniffing on everything.

One of the motivating songs I listen to today.

Oracle went with my husband to work earlier this morning and I am dropping Zelda of there on the way to campus. This way I am not alone at home with my nerves, but I do not have to deal with two dogs when I am packing everything up. Plus Oracle gets some extra time alone with my husband, which she really needs.

I can feel my anxiety levels are kind of high right now and it helps me a lot that I have Zelda here at home with me. She is sitting next to me on the sofa right now and the music also helps. I am trying my best to keep myself from spiraling and keep myself grounded. I know I can do this. I also know that I have my husband just a phone call away if I need to talk, which also helps. But now I am going to get ready for my lectures today.

I wish you all an amazing Tuesday.

Love, Nea

The Voice UK

Since we moved here to Edinburgh, I been hooked on the Voice UK. I just love it. I missed one part so far, an I really don’t want to miss any more.

My favorite is Deana and I am so happy that she last night made it through to the live shows. She is an amazing singer and I really hope she wins the whole deal.

Here is her blind audition:

And here are her Battle against Peter Donegan (my nr two favorite).

And here are her Song last night in the KnockOuts. So glad she made it through!

And I have to say that I hope that Deana and Peter does more songs together in the future. They have a connection and I feel like they can have fun together while they do music. Just look at their performance together. They are having fun.

I deferentially want to hear more from Peter, as well, as a solo artist. He has an amazing voice and I am kind of mad at Tom for putting them together in the Knockouts. I wanted them booth to go through. Even though Deana is my favorite. I just hope that Peter will get the recognition he deserves and a record deal.

And to end, Good luck Deana with the continuing on the Voice. I am routing for you!

Happy Friday!

Today I don’t have any lectures so I will spend the day trying to find good academic articles for essays. I need so many and I might only have about 3 that are good enough so far. But I am not giving up I will find some really good and write kick-ass essays. Or at least do my best. And that is good enough.

The plan for today was from the beginning to go to a shopping center about 22 minutes with bus from here and try and find a spring jacket for me, but my feets hurt and I don’t really feel like walking around shopping then. But we will see I might change my mind later.

But today is a good day and I want to share my happy song right now. Its Simple by Florida Georgia Line. It makes me want to sing and dance. A real happy song.

So, time to find those articles. Have an amazing Friday!

Love, Nea

21st December ~ Christmas Song of the Day

Right now I am waiting for my husband to get home. It’s his last day at work before we move to Edinburgh, and I just want him home with me. He usually works the days between Christmas and New Year, but not this year. He has taken the time off to spend it with me and the dogs. And to help keep me calm and so we can pack what we need for our move. 

So I think today’s song is appropriate. It’s Christmas (Baby, please come home). Because I want him to come home to me. 

These are my two favourite versions so far of the song. I will now listen to these and hope my husband gets home soon. 

Have a magical Friday afternoon and evening. 

Love, Nea

18th December ~ Christmas Song of the Day

It’s Tuesday and Christmas is just a week away. We have snow outside now and I hope it stays that way. I want a white Christmas. Therefore is the Christmas Song of the day: White Christmas. I love this classic Christmas song and my favourite is when Bing Crosby sings this song. 

But I also like when Michael Bublé sings this song with Shania Twain. It´s a little more sway in that song. Perfect to listen to while you pack presents, clean the house or bake.

I hope you all have an wonderful Tuesday!

Love, Nea
