The west village and a white dress.
morning. just looking through some pictures from our trip to New York last year. there was one night when we were going for burgers close to SoHo and the air was warm and I was wearing my new favorite dress. I remember that we had the finest night and that I was wearing it every single day for the rest of that summer. from H&M
We are all mortal until the first kiss and the second glass of wine.
Ida and I have bought some fabric colors and some white oversized t-shirts to do quote prints. I’ve been out on pinterest checking out some of my favorites. some of them would be hilarious as t-shirt prints I recon.

Best of a week. 1.
So, since I randomly bump into movies, books, articles, pictures, people and life over here I have decided to do a lil ”best of a week”, that should lift the stuff that has affected me the most during 7 days. here comes a little demonstration The virgin suicides. Cant. Let. It. Go. Seriously, I have no idea why I haven’t watched this masterpiece of film before, but I’ve rewatched it about ten times from the first time I saw it about a week ago. Anyway, it is an american movie from 1999 directed by Sofia Coppola. The movie is about five sisters that are pretty much isolated from the reality because of their strict parents. you get to follow their lives and their story from the perspective of four boys living next door to them. Apart from all the pictures showing the beauty of the 1970s, the plot line of the movie and all the hidden messages was what caught me the most. Think I’m gonna watch it again right now actually. Pictures are from PinterestThe Sydney Feminists. I have been searching for a community working for equality and human rights in Newcastle, but the closest one I could find was this one. In sydney there is a group of people that are working with media education, reproductive rights, violence against women and intersectionality. They are gathering volunteers to implement projects that involves all types of feministic discussions, and how to spread them. I haven’t been able to participate in any meeting just yet, but It’s about to come. These fellow awesome people throw dinners, documentary filming sessions and speeches almost every week, so I recon it would be a good thing for everybody to join them. You join them via meet up.com or get involved via their website http://www.sydneyfeminists.org.going to an 80s maskerade dressed as Dirty Dancing Baby n Johnny. Ida and I practiced all night on how to dirty dance before we went to a 21 the day after. I recon we pulled it off. aspecially the lift in da pool the fall/winter collection of Faggot Apparel. Check it out here. Angus and Julia Stones cover on ”You’re the one that I want”. I’ve had it on my head for five days now. It’s also a great song to play at the guitar I’ve realized.
thats all for now. tonight we’re going to watch the christmas lights. all the houses in newcastle are filled with blinky fairy lights so we’re gonna take the car and go around every single street during a couple of hours. I’ll bring the camera for sure
A swedish christmas party and a small ballroom.
the latest 24 hours have been exhausting, and while I’m not sitting here with a cup of coffee I’m going to tell you all about them a couple of weeks ago, we got a request from carmens mum if we wanted to cook a swedish dinner for her and her fiends. since christmas is about to come, we decided to go for a typical swedish christmas buffet. I never thought you’d have to put in so many hours of cooking before christmas as we did yesterday. we wanted it allwe made food such as meatballs, Janssons frestelse, smoked salmon with lemon and dill sauce, cooked potatoes, eggs with mayo and caviar n heaps of other stuff. The entré was a Toast Skagen and later we had pannacotta with elderflower marinated raspberries. I’d call it a fiestme, ida, sam and carmen prepared and had white wine in the kitchen just before the 10 guest arrived. Ida.I got pretty nervous just before we carried everything out, since the flavors of a swedish christmas table is very different from what you usually eat here. basically everything contained dill, chives and mayo. anyway, people loved it. a specially the pink betroot salad <3sam tried pickled herring (sill) for the first time of his lifeonly a bit ironic that we were sitting outside in 30 degrees heat, 8 a clock in the evening celebrating christmastimes. ida and I wished for snowcarmen was a salad ladylater on we took a snaps and sang Helan Går. carmens mum played the accordionwhen dinner was over we headed towards the small ballroom. it was wednesday nightwe bumped into jacobthere were plenty of gigs flynnwe finally got to meet nick cox’s sister that had come home for christmas two days ago. she lives in norway at the moment and I got a bit homesick speaking to herliam and meit got pretty late so when they started cleaning up we decided to move on to Lass the rest of the night just floated away. I was mostly proud over the swedish dinner actually succeeding, which I spent my night telling everyone we bumped into about.
now, the fridge is filled up with leftovers and I am in the perfect mood for a meatball sandwich
If a writer falls in love with you, you can never die.
It has been a while since I wrote here last. I guess life just kept me busy, and during the empty hours I’ve been trying to breathe and sleep. I regret that now thought and I feel more ready that ever to hit the desk. There are too many interesting things going on in the world and in my mind not to write, and since I also miss my family and friends back home I wish to share it all. The next coming weeks I wish to write about:the everyday life as an aussie. or well, a swede trying to be oneDreams. Living here is one, but once I’m here there is obviously a billion new dreams appearing. I have spent days just thinking about what to do with my time and whats relevant as a dream, or at least to make it come trueI also wanna write about friends. New ones, old ones, loosing them, finding them, missing them or forgetting about them. This picture is from yesterday night when me and Ida went to the ocean for a swim with some of our new fiendsTravel. Like tips and stuff for the big life changing trips. Places I’ve been, wanna go to and certainly will go to. pinterest will be the key to my dreams about south east asia and other amazing places. this one is from idas and my trip to new zealand a couple of months ago Feminism and possible ways to deal with the damage from sexism and patriarchal controlled communities. The discussions concerning sexism and inequality in sweden are far more developed than the ones in australia. or at least more common, and therefore the subject feels extra important to bring up. I will try to link as b of my fav articles, books and projects about it as possible. (picture from Pinterest)Awesome clothing and companies such as Faggot ApparelInspirational people. Tavi Gevinson is one for exampleannother subject that is indeed connected to sexist communities and societies. Ideal roles, which is also quite fascinating writing about when moving to another country since it becomes very clear how big impact the specific ideal pattern actually has on people. I’ll try to fit some new music in there as well. some of our best friends plays in three bands called White Walkers, Lunar Villa and Suburban Sleepers, so the range of new music coming in is pretty large.so, one of the goals with moving to Newcastle in Australia was trying to come up with a story. I have been working on some different projects, but writing a novel will probably be the hardest thing I have ever done. therefore, I will write a lot about how to find the inspiration, and how to continue even though you don’t find it. I don’t even have the answers yet, but I will try to find them ouups almost forgot the most important thing hey. I’ll write about love. about the shit and about the beauty of it. more than anything really. I’ll write about it so much you will never wanna read about it again. and about snogging. yes, I will write about snogging too. the picture is of my two best friends in sweden. they’re in love actuallythat was a brief lil introduction of whats about to come. Can’t promise I will keep up with all the subjects at once, but I will do my best.
