The week from hell!!!

2008-11-05 - Uncategorized

Jesus... the past few days has been from hell! I haven't had any money at all since Friday, and you wanna know why? I don't know if I should laugh or cry about it tbh, but for some reason, there has been a double transaction pay from my account of my oven. Well, Elgigantan doesn't take any responsibility for what's happened, and at first, they blamed my bank, which sent me back to Elgiganten ofc... The second time around they blamed VISA, who they said had been having some trouble and that my money should be back within a few days.

During these days, there's been quite a large sum showing a negative amount of money on my account, which means that my bank will claim an interest fee of 95;-/day (and that's money I won't get back, since no one is taking the responsibility of what's happened to me). Thanks to all this, I haven't been able to pay my bills and they will also claim an interest fee of course...

And as if this wouldn't be enough shit for this month, I got a parking ticket singed by a meter maid, who had said to me not to worry tonight, cause he wasn't about to sign a ticket for my car anyway. So... I, of course, took my time while I was up in my apartment getting some money to pay with. But I promise you, it didn't even take 10 min before I was down at my car again, but guess what I saw... A FUCKING TICKET!

Fundamentals of physics 8th

2008-10-29 - University

It's been a while since I had time to write anything here. I've been kinda busy a few days with nothing and everything. I've been looking for this book that we need for our physics course – Fundamentals of physics 8th Edition and it's almost impossible to find it. The few ones that the school sold disappeared faster than lightning, so yesterday I skipped a class and headed to town to look for it. In of book stores they sold it, for f**king 1799;- !!! HELL NO! So I headed to the next place who also sold it (but with at least 2 weeks delivery) with student reduction, now it won't cost more than 500;-


--- UPDATE (11/11) --- 

I finally got it! The book that weighs 2,5kg and consists of 1328 pages in advanced English!!! 

The bookstore at school, which was supposed to have the same amount of books as there were students taking the course, sold out the very first day they got 'em and left numerous of students without. I've counted the problems that should have been solved up until this week - and there are 103 of them... Time to work I guess... I'm f**cked!!!

Visit from my parents and grandma!

2008-10-25 - Uncategorized

My parents and my grandma along with her oldie are visiting me over the day. They should be here in 1½h and then we're off to town for some shopping and later on something to eat at a great restaurant I hope!

Back in school...

2008-10-20 - University

I'm back in the MAC-room. I'm starting to love these computers! It was a bit tricky in the beginning before I got a hang of how they worked. Right now, I'm using one of their 24", and it's HUGE! Perfect while working with graphics etc... 

I've just handed in a home exam in Communication and User Interfaces, the last of the four parts in this course. I think I should get a good grade in this course... It has to be my turn now, right(?), since math and programming aren't my best friends :P I'm WAY better when it comes to things that are written and handed in, reports and such. 

Finally some real pizza!

2008-10-12 - Uncategorized

Drive, drive, drive your car gently down the road... hmm? ;P I've been visiting my mom and dad this weekend back in Degerfors. It was a real quicky! I headed up there on Saturday and not even 24h later, I drove back to Norrköping... Mom wasn't too happy about the short visit tho, I think she misses me ;D

I haven't been that social either... I've been sitting in the kitchen, studying! The only other thing that I've been doing is eating :P Hehehe I like being pampered with good food when I get home! And as always when I'm home, I just have to get some REAL pizza (compared to the shitty ones they serve in this town ^^). Mom also made one of my favorite dishes which I don't even know how to spell, I think it's Makloube, and an awesome chocolate pie with peers. THANK YOU! 

And while I was sitting inside, my dad was out taking care of my car... Time to change the tires! THANKS to you too :D

In the magazine!

2008-10-06 - Media

It's been a lovely day! :D The sun is shining and it's pretty warm outside. School wasn't too bad either and we got home again around 13:30 :) After having pizza with the guys, again ^^, I think I should eat nothing but soup for a couple of days :P


Getting home to my place I found another letter on the floor, and this time it was the magazine which interviewed me a few weeks ago :D Just click on it and enjoy!


You've got mail!

2008-09-29 - Gaming

When I got home today I was pleased to see that there was a letter on the floor - with a DVD ;D Now I can watch myself whenever I feel that I want to laugh and have a good time :P Haha wanna watch it with me, anyone? I've got a lot of popcorn... 

Les Seules - Come and Play Us

2008-09-27 - Media

It's been a while since it was broadcasted on the TV, but I couldn't help but giggle when I found this on YouTube. This is the end result for the music video that we made to our own song which we tried to record. I must admit that it's weird to hear myself in the chorus, but still... 

It's not THAT bad!!! 

Computer Graphics - Completed

2008-09-17 - University

I just found out that I managed to complete a course called Computer Graphics with the grade 4/5. Finally some light at the end of the tunnel!

This is what I've been doing in this course... Making different shapes of things by making and building my own polygons with mathematical methods interpreted in JAVA-labs ^^ Soon I'll be ready for my first awesome movie effects... Riiiight! :P  

Cocktail Bar - Manesa

2008-08-23 - Restaurants

When it comes to actually execute stuff that my friends and I decide to do, we really suck... Yesterday we planned on watching the fireworks, again, and guess what, we missed ‘em - again!

There's a carnival going on in town which results in hundreds of stands and even more people running around with beer cans in their hands. I'm not really into that kind of party, so my friends and I went to our favorite bar Manesa, and ordered in a few drinks. I had an acid drink with strawberries and lime, a special frozen daiquiri served during the carnival which included strawberries, pineapple, and raspberry, and I finished off with a damn delicious Baileys drink with Koskenkorva and pure cream!!!

How did you spend your late-night hours?
