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

Not my day today..

It feels like everything that can mess with me is messing with me today. The computer have frozen on me a couple of times today. My usb-stick has locked down, so I can’t ad or change anything on it. I don’t really know how that happened, because I used it yesterday and everything was working like normal.

It’s been raining the whole day here, and this morning I put on the dogs their raincovers, because Zelda hates walking in the rain. This morning was no exception, she walked like 20 meters and then she had done all of her business and wanted to go inside again, but Oracle loves walking and does not care about the weather, so we continued walking. When I got in about 30 minutes later my shoes was wet all the way through as well as my jacket and pants. I also had to pissed of dogs, Zelda because she had to walk in the rain and Oracle because we did not walk as long as we usually does.

This is just a small part of my day. I will not share any more, because it feels like I am only whining, and I don’t want to do that. I have to say that I now have to really cozy dogs that want to cuddle and be close. And I have actually gotten some important things done today, so the day has not been to bad.

I wish you all an amazing Friday evening, and don’t forget that Taylor Swifts new album Lover now is out! I have been listening to it all day long.

Situation Sunday ~ October 21

This week I haven’t really been all that interested in what’s been going on around the world because I have a sick dog and very little sleep. Plus I have had my classes on campus to deal with.

But some news I have gotten is that Congratulations are in order for Price Harry and Dutchess Meghan. They are expecting a baby Spring 2019. I say it on Kensingtonroyals Instagram. Here is a snapshot of the announcement.

I like these kinds of news, but I have read that people are discussing if the baby is going to be born around Brexit and what’s going to get the most attention.

Prince Harry and Dutchess Meghan are in Australia for a tour and The Invictus Games. For those of you who don’t know what The Invictus Games are; it’s a multi-sports event for injured, hurt or sick military and veterans that Prince Harry started 2014.

“The Invictus Games use the power of sport to inspire recovery, support rehabilitation and generate a wider understanding and respect for wounded, injured and sick Servicemen and women.” ~Quote from The Invictues Games website.

I love this. I think it’s amazing and I hope to see more news about the games.

I have also read a bit about Brexit. Yesterday there was a demonstration in London against Brexit. According to DN.se where there about half a million people protesting. I don’t live in U.K. and I don’t really know what I think about Brexit, because I am not well read on the subject. I just now that many people have very strong opinions about it. We just have to wait and see.

I have also read about Taylor Swifts political stance and how she now has started telling people to vote. I know she shared this message on her Instagram last week:

And this week she shared this on her Instagram:

And this on her Stories:

I think it’s great. We need more women that stand up for there beliefs and I think that Taylor can get through to so many people in America so some people how maybe wasn’t going to vote now is voting. And that’s good.

I don’t care that she hasn’t been outspoken about her political standpoint before. I just glad that she is now.
