hello! time for a summary of week 32, the last day of my vacation!


what have you been up to this week?

celebrated another special person’s birthday this monday and we went to a small village called vadstena. we visited an old convent and another castle. i really like this little village, it’s really nice that it is placed by the lake vättern. we had picnic, had a fika in a convent café and visited small shops. was also treated to a birthday dinner with my relatives some days later.

i was really happy to see ed sheeran this thursday in gothenburg! it’s my birthday event!

went wild swimming a lot this week, almost every day. it was sunny most of the time and around 28 degrees. i think this summer must have been a record.

had a friend over saturday, ate tuna melt, watched a crappy movie. the same old and i love it :)


today i did some archery with two friends and tried out SUP. haven’t done it before, it was nice. 3 out of 5. heavy to carry but really relaxing and fun!


how is the creativity process going?

i’ll start making music tomorrow. :) can’t wait! i'm longing for this so bad!


what are you listening to?

it has to be ed sheeran, right? but i’ll say all the songs in the setlist he played at the concert. my favorites are:

  1. castle on the hill <- favorite. i love lego house too.

  2. bloodstream <- might be a favorite, shivers went down my spine watching the screen

  3. photograph <- it’s just fricking beautiful.

  4. you need me, i don’t need you <- ”they say i’m up and coming like i'm...”

  5. shape of you <- party 1

  6. shivers <- party 2

  7. bad habits <- party 3


what are you watching?

i’m watching 7 different animes, the ones i’ve mentitioned in previous posts, but because of the late concert night and unregular sleep time i’ve watched a little anime to fall asleep. Orenchi no Furo Jijo. it’s short, cute and easygoing. zzz


A boy mermaid named Wakasa has taken over the bath of a teenage boy named Tatsumi! This cute but selfish freeloader is a perfect match for the cool but tender and caring Tatsumi. Let's see how they get by together!

what are you reading?

i’m reading the last volumes of shortcake cake, i really loved this manga. kind of surprised i found it at my local library.

what have you been up to this week?

i camped at the archipelago, i was exhausted before we left and i went to bed early in the tent after drinking some warm soup and watching the ocean. it started to rain around 9 and i fall asleep to the sound of the waves and rain.

went to my mom’s summer house and also helped my grandmother to unpack her stuff in a new apartment.

i’ve been decluttering like crazy, went through every room from the dark cellar to the messy pantry.


celebrated my birthday and visited a castle among other things. (‐^▽^‐)


how is the creativity process going?

i’ve been recording a few melodies, starting to begin with songwriting. i’m excited, i’m so looking forward to beginning with music making.


what are you listening to?

i love this song! the colored chords, the chord progress, the rhythm, the energy curve - everything about it is really good.


BOY - King Gnu


what are you watching?

i’m watching the anime ”classroom of the elite” and i recommend this! there are some things about the anime that is kind of annoying, like some less flattering angles when it comes to a specific gender (as in most animes), but other than that the story is really exciting and makes you wanna continue to watch it.


Kiyotaka Ayanokoji has just enrolled at Tokyo Koudo Ikusei Senior High School, where it's said that 100% of students go on to college or find employment. But he ends up in Class 1-D, which is full of all the school's problem children. What's more, every month, the school awards students points with a cash value of 100,000 yen, and the classes employ a laissez-faire policy in which talking, sleeping, and even sabotage are permitted during class. One month later, Ayanokoji, Horikita, and the students of Class D learn the truth of the system in place within their school...

what are you reading?

i’m reading Steal like an Artist! i enjoyed this read. perhaps i'll write about my thoughts about some of these topics.

  1. Steal like an artist

  2. Don't wait until you know who you are to start making things

  3. Write the book you want to read

  4. Use your hands

  5. Side projects are important

  6. Do good work and put it where people can see it

  7. Geography is no longer our master

  8. Be nice (the world is a small town.)

  9. Be boring (it's the only way to get work done.)

  10. Creativity is subtraction.

what have you been buying or decluttering?

i went through the apartment and got rid of old, broken and moldy things, expired food and medicine and unused stuff. i always do a yearly declutter day to go through my things and clean up. there are always things to declutter and there is always a need to organize things in the drawers and shelves. i take some time to clean in all the storage spaces i don’t usually clean.

i bought a new blender and a new kettle, the old ones were broken.

hello, here is week 30!


what have you been up to this week?

the week started with a roadtrip to my dad who lives in the western side of sweden. we stayed there a couple of days and relaxed, talked and ate really good food. whenever i’m there i always get really inspired to create music. i went on a lot of nature walks and bike rides, one nature walk with a friend, been feeding ducks and inspiring people to feed birds with healthier alternatives than bread. :) went to a cosplay festival this friday, also been doing archery a couple of times and i already see improvements, been swimming a lot and visited a friend’s house. took care of another friend’s cat when she was away at a concert, bought some groceries for a friend who has a cold.




i love snufkin.....


how is the creativity process going?

better and better, still vacation but i’m getting really pumped up for creating music. i have so many ideas!



what are you listening to?

"Kono Yumega Samerumade” - Miliyah (feat. Yoshida Brothers)

i love this song, and the music video inspires me for a song i’m gonna make this year.

the song is the outro of a really good anime called ”Those snow white notes”.

what are you watching?

Ranking of Kings!! this anime is really really good. i cry in every episode. it’s really sad and sweet. i really recommend this one! no wonder this was recieved well, it's brilliant:

How prosperous your nation is, how many powerful warriors it boasts, and how heroic and strong its king is. These are the criteria that factor into the system known as the Ranking of Kings. The main character, Bojji, was born the first prince of the kingdom ruled by King Bossu, who is ranked number seven. But Bojji was born unable to hear and is so powerless that he can’t even swing a sword. In consequence, his own retainers and the public, look down upon him as completely unfit to be king. It is then that Bojji finds his first friend, Kage, and Bojji’s life takes a dramatic turn…

what are you reading?

i’m reading The Miracle of Mindfulness - Thích Nhất Hạnh and also volume 9 of the manga Nana. i love and hate this manga. it’s really sweet but also sad and it takes a really bad turn after the 8 volume. i don’t like how it turns out.... i plan to read all the 21 volumes. (i love shin)

what have you been buying or decluttering?

i’ve been buying some stickers from the cosplay festival. one for the beer fridge at home, two in my studio and one for covering the laptop brand on my work pc, just to change things up a bit. :) two key ring charms and also a nice fan for the summer heat (which i painted black).
