By the way! I only have two more days of nursing practice left.

AND after having spoken to the "department of surgery" I will spend two whole days with orthopaedic surgeons next week throughout surgery, rounds, preparations etc.

AND next Sunday I'm going to Paris!
PLUS the kimchi I made is actually really good!

"I know, it is hard"

Deceptive photo from July when I donated blood...

So far I'm working out every second day which makes it 3 - 4 times a week. My stamina has been poor but at least today at the gym I experienced a noticeable difference (in out-of-breath-fatigue) compared to last week.



My new skeakers. Iwiwiwhiho lovelovelove...

My first home made kimchi

Exciting news!! I've made my first home made kimchi. It's the Korean version of sour cabbage or "kaposta"... I followed this video-recipe (click). But make sure to wear gloves if you make it... because I didn't and the hot chili burned my fingertips. LOL! Puffy and sore.


Want to work out!!

A jobless day! And great weather too. My sister was over with her kids here at the summer place which was a lot of fun.

Hmm I want to get in shape. I know that I'm in good shape, but I'm talking about some serious business good shape... and I when I get there (two months of summer vacation will probably offer a good start) I want to keep it throughout Med. school! And for the rest of my life for that matter. If my boyfriend manages to find time for exercise every day and still achieves perfect grades in school then I can do so too...

I enjoy working out. But you know how some people love the burn when they push really hard... I'm not one of those people. I withstand the burn and love how I feel afterwards, and the physical results of course. I think this is why I've never been interested enough in becoming really good at swimming for instance... because to build such a stamina requires a lot of pain... and I've never enjoyed these moments... In my head I'm all "IT'S JUST TEMPORARY MARIA GOGO IT'S GOOD FOR YOU".

Where am I right now? I work out on average twice a week, during school too. Which is about the minimum requirement to be in decent shape. I don't really bother with diet and I drink alcohol on occasion.

Anywayyys wanna know something stupid?
My new Adidas sneakers motivate me crazy much. Hahah oh but I just have to show you later they're too gorgeous...


Comment #1

Five (random) things you probably didn't know, about me...

1. When I need to call someone on their home phone I always repeat in my head the presentation "Hi, it's Maria is (friend) at home?". It sounds something like  hiitsmariaisdennisathomehiitsmariaisdennisathome... in case their parents would answer, so that I know what to say... Only because once when I was seven or eight I presented myself as my friend and was looking for Maria.

2. I like to escort insects out alive if I find them inside my house. But if there is too much at risk and if I have to kill the insect... I sincerely apologize to it. I also do this when I (for instance) pick a flower or if I catch a fish.

3. I walk around naked at home at any time of the day. I just don't mind. I don't lock the door when I shower in case someone needs to brush their teeth. I'm much comfortable with my nakedness amongst family or close friends... but don't take what you read too far, it's not like I'd walk around naked with guests in the house. However, among people close to me, if I hide while changing clothes (or whatever) it is for the sake of comfort of my company and not me.

4. I don't believe in super natural powers, superstition or spirits or a god or anything like such... but I do make a wish whenever I see a falling star. Quaintly, but those few cute things that I've wished for have come true and even if it doesn't prove or mean anything it is still silly enough to make me slightly confounded.

5. When I was 16 I was almost sleeping on the train when I realized it was probably my station and time to get off, so I ran to the door. No one else was getting off with me and I had to open the old door by my self which took a long time... also I opened the wrong door at first which made me anxious. Finally I came out on the platform. But it was so dark outside (Swedish winter) that I didn't recognize my station and I figured I went off too soon. I manged to jump back on the train just as it started rolling. A staff girl asked if I went off at the wrong station and I said "wow haha I thought this was Flen" but she responded in a weird tone "... this is Flen?" so I made a quick glace behind me to judge the speed (bicycle) and jumped off. Backwards. In high heels... Eventually I landed on my butt. Thought only afterwards of what I did... would not repeat.


Alright... I don't have a working computer of my own anymore. I'm at my father's...
What happened since my last post:
I just got home from "work". I'm doing the nursing practice for a month now at the hospital in my hometown. I may say that it is not a sit-down job! My feet are sore after just two days of work, lol. The nurses are really pleasant and proficient.
Last week I visited my friend in Poland. She's in Med. School too at The University of Gdánsk. We had drinks cappuchino gossip and shopping! But not much luck with the weather hahah rain was pouring down 24/7...
When I got home I had a get-together at my summer place with my High School friends!

Lastly I've bought a six day trip to Paris with my family. PARIS!! I've been wanting to go there so badly... for a year. Hehe. Really only since I opened The Hunchback of Notre Dame. Can't wait!!

Pictures coming up. #1 and #2 from Poland, the rest were taken at my summer place.
