Vart tog ramen vägen?

Hallå, då var jag här igen men nu i en annan skepnad. Det här med bloggandet avtog ju ett tag nu här under sommaren och trots att det har vart rysligt dåligt väder den senaste veckan plus att jag har haft/har (har ingen riktig koll på när jag får friskförklaras men pencilin står iallafall på schemat i 4 dagar till) lunginflammation!! Fattar ni? Lunginflammation på sommaren och bara det att jag fått lunginflammation över huvudtaget är ju rätt chockande, jag är väldigt naiv och tänker hela tiden "det händer inte mig". Det spelar ingen roll om det handlar om döden, sjukdomar eller bara bli av med cykeln utanför affären, oavsätt vad så händer det inte mig...
Vad jag ville komma till när jag äntligen tog mig tid och satte mig här var att jag bestämmt att både skriva på Engelska och svenska. Jag har tidigare haft bloggar där jag bara skrivit på svenska och där har jag kännt ett sug efter en internationalisering (oerhört svårt ord!) och nu då jag bara skulle skriva på Engelska så kände jag suget efter det fina, svåra, ologiska svenska språket som jag, vare sig jag vill eller inte, är fast med, och jag kommer ibland på mig själv med att känna stolthet att jag faktiskt behärskar ett så ovanligt och svårt språk.

Det jag egentligen vill säga är att det från och med nu inte kommer finnas några ramar längre! Det kommer vara texter på både svenska och engelska om alltmöjligt som faller mig in! Tankar, fotboll, hunden, inredning, mina dagar, resor, plugg, drömmar, människor, citat, familj, fotografier. Ja, bli aldrig förvånade över vad jag hittar på. Sen får vi se hur länge det håller den här gången.

"Life isn't measured by the number of breaths but the number of things that takes your breath away"

Emma (black) & I (white) on our favorite spot <3

100 questions answered by me

According to me, the best and funniest way to tell you all about myself is for me to answer these 100 questions that I found somewhere on the internet. Enjoy!

1. Three names that I am listening to: Emilia, Räkan (the Shrimp in English) and Milia.
2. Something I like about myself: That I absolutly love myself and my body!
3. Something I don't like about myself: A hard question for me since me resent answer but maybe that I put a little bit too much pressure on myself sometimes. I am not fully satisfied with good and bad is a total catastrophe!
4. This I am afraid of: Snakes, darkness, death and lonelieness.
5. Three things I want everyday: Life, Love and Laughter.
6. Three things that I absolutly can't do: Let someone down,
7. Things I love to do: Live, Love, Laugh, spend time with my nearest & dearest, play football and ride the bus.
8. What I want to do right now: Have a long and deep conversation with Emma.
9. The best feeling in the world: Happiness. It might be a boring answer but it covers so much. If I would play for the national football team I would feel happiness, if someone tells me they love me I feel happiness and if I ride the craziest roler coaster with my best friend I feel, well guess what, Happiness.

10. The worst feeling: Loneliness and agony.
11. Properties I would like my partner to have: Loving, kind, spontaneous, ambitious, purposeful and he must be able to make me laugh.
12. I'm I in love right now: No, I am not.
13. Do I want to get married: I only want to get married once but sadly I've started to doubt marrige but I guess that love beats everything so if I find that right guy that would go through fire for me and I would the same for him then I guess I would change my mind and start to fully believe that we would live togethter until the end of time. So my final answer is yes, I want to get married because I want to believe in forever.
14. Things I want to do before I die: Well, I have a whole list of 100 tings written down plus at least 500 more stuff that I want to do so I think that I wait with this answer for a little while.
15. My very favorite thing I own: I really hate questions like this but I am going to say my football shoes since they get me through amazing moments and opportunities. They are also the perfect reality escape.
16. Something I would like to get as a gift: A book  or a song written about/to me.
17. This I am wearing right now: Black running-trousers, a red t-shirt, a brown knitted sweater and underwear of course.
18. My favorite clothes: All kinds of jump-and playsuites
19. Favorite animal: I hate this question since I have such a boring answer but I love both cats and dogs. I want to be able to say crocodile and mean it but I can't, my answer is cats and dogs I'm afraid. But I like lions aswell.

20. My kind of music: Thanks to Emma I've started to love girls playing guitarr or piano while singing calm and soft songs with deep lyrics.

I've got a lot of favorites but some of them are Adele, The Frey, Melissa Horn, The Script, Veronica Maggio, Gavin DeGraw and Lifehouse.

What happened? Well, since I've got this amazing friend, my life gets to good to be true and my dreams and wishes gets so much easier to reach and it's not just that I have a best friend. I've got Emma and she is not just anyone, she is the one! I think, or wait, I'm 106 % sure that she would do anything for me but even if she wouldn't I would try my absolute best to do anything and everything for her because she is just one of those people that you want in you life, no matter what.
So once again, what happend? Well, she made my blog perfect. I didn't even know how I wanted it but she did. She knew exactly what I wanted. And for those how are intrested in who this wondrous person is, her too beautiful blog is very much worth a visit so what are you waiting for!?

My Emma

And I wasn't really allowed to look at this design until she told me to but something tells me that she could have guessed that I couldn't wait!

Outside my Hometown

Now I'm finally home for real from a long trip in two european countries and it just crossed my mind that I did this in two weeks. Amazing but if you want to catch that little special feeling about traveling I can recomend you to take a break and breath between your different journeys. Get home, eat some propper food, sleep in your own bed, smell your own pillow and hug your closest and just breath them in.
But also to strech it out a little, now I have about 7 or 6 almost cleen weeks and even if I know that they won't stay that way I would have appreciate to have at least one journey to look forward and plan the packing to.
But I'm absolutely not complaining, it has been 3 amazing first weeks to this years summerbreak and I know that this wonderful feeling I'm carrying around now, will last. So far this break has contained crazy kids at the football-school where I stepped in as a coach and I can assure you that it is tougher than you can imagine to handle 20 8-9 year olds. But I loved it anyway!
Then the Island games. I don't think that I've understand how huge that is! We lived in "kind-of-caravans" for 8 days while we played football, ate weird food, talked to other competitors and had a lot of fun.
And yes, I felt like a superstar.
At last, after spending 8 days with other (some older and very, very special) girls in England on the Isle of wight (the place of this years Island games) I felt like coming home when I went to Germany with my beloved teammates! We had 5 days of laughter and football and I really enjoyed it. We played agains one German team and won, 1-0 to the "away-team", us, and that was not expected. We also saw a great match of the womens World Championship, a match between the USA and our own Swedish team and once again we won!! 2-1. That was an amazing experience and after the game we saw some of the players cose-up and I've never felt so exited as when one of the players (can't remember which one) said "see you tomorrow" to us, since we got the opportunity to watch their training the day after the game. I got two autographs from Seger and Landstöm on my shirt and I will never use that one again.

And once again I felt a little like a celebirty when we came to the arena before the big game and everyone wanted to take pictures of us since we where an ocean of yellow shirts, a big Swedish flag and of course our great singing and screaming! We also found time to do some shopping and a visit to the capital, Berlin. It was so worth the heavy feeling of going once getting home that I had after getting home from England and it was also so worth all the thousands of hours on the buss and on the boat!
We had a great time and I could have stayed much longer! Love you guys.

My teammates and I lined up many times for other people to take pictures of us.

 I really love to travel, it can be 9 miles up the coast on our little island, it can be on camp to Germany or a sun&bathe vaccation with my family to Grece. I appreciate hours of waiting at airports, sleeping on busses to hotels or youth hostels and talking to the natives. I love to get up early to go and buy breakfast and try their specialties. I love to stop by a gas station just to strech your legs after hours on the bus or in the car and refill the snack stores. So I love travelin because I love every tiny part about it! Even the coming home part gets good, it feels different and it inspires me, I will always love and adore my Hometown.

Part one.

Hello everyone and welcome to my new blog! Right now I'm sitting in my  crazy messy bed with the best friend in the whole world, my Emma. She is struggling to find the right words to fill this first blog post, just like I am.
We love to blow up small things and make them big things and I love our crazy ideas! This time we decided to start our new blogs at the exact same time and even if I think that Emma managed to beat me with a few seconds this time (just like so many times before) we will still always say that we created our blogs at the same time and we will love it and it will be a part of our beautiful and unique friendship.

So for now I can tell you to look forward to a lot of homemade thoughts by me. Stories and memories will be published and a picture here and there if I remember. I hope that I can update as much as possible but since it's summer and the sun will hopefully shine (unlike today) I will enjoy that for as long as I can!
Tomorrow I'm going to Germany with my soccer/football team so I will be quiet for a few days but I can't blame that on the wheater I'm afraid. But while I'm gone you can visit for some amazing reading!

Bye for now!
