Today's quote

"Life is for living, Love is for sharing, a smile is for everyone, So live always, Love often and smile forever"

Awesome show!

Came back from an amazing show with Russell Peters a few hours ago!
It was awesome, i laughed so much!

This was the very first time i got to see him live!
It had more sex jokes than i thought but it made me laugh! ^^

So I'm all happy!
I didn't want the show to end ^^

Food for thought

Stuck in Archer

So this afternoon I'm stuck at Dr John Archer library!
Guess what I'm doing...research for my midterm essay, it totally sucks XD

I mean the sun is up and great weather to just hang outside!
But i got to finish this paper before next weekend!

Delicious dinner

Today we went downtown, the main reason was to buy shoes, however i did not only buy shoes...

I ended up buying one sweater, one pair of jeans, one t-shirt, foods...
Then again i did not spend much, maybe $100

And to end the great shopping spree we had dinner, Mediterranean wraps ^^ so delicious ^^

One week left

It's one week left before I'm off on the Canadian roads with 9 of my new buddies!!
I'm excited, as it's my first roadtrip and the place we are heading to is supposed to be really nice!!

It's called BANFF and it's a national park, one of many here in Canada.

Anyway we are hooked up with great cars for an awesome rental price thanks to my roomies buddy!! $47 instead of $220!!!

So next week this time we will be arriving in the wonderful nature land ^^


I'm stuck in a computer lab, trying to finish my stupid journal for this week's Negotiation class.
I really suck at writing these kinds of stuff. However I do believe I'm done, however I also need to start my research for my "midterm" paper.
In this class we do not have exams, however we have small quizzes and lots of writing to do. That's why I'm not sure if I should be happy or not...

Anyway I hope I will be able to finish this within the next hour or so.
In the afternoon me, Shoko, Yaely and some others are going downtown.

I'm gonna buy my winter boots!! Ohhh... yeah ^^

Today's quote

“When you’re traveling, you are what you are right there and then. People don’t have your past to hold against you. No yesterdays on the road.

Thursday, 27 September 2012


So we had to wait for lunch, because they closed the kitchen for 30min!
I'm starving, and i hope the food will arrive ASAP!!
I got class at 4, and i think my coffee is out of my body, i want another cup but I'm not sure my wallet allows it!? XD

Panic in my heart

I finally sat down and read all my course outlines!
And panic started to raise in my heart!
I do not have midterms for all the classes, instead i have assignments... I have to write an essay for my negotiation class, I'm nervous already because the topic!!

So i know what i will do this weekend and upcoming week!!!

Anyway it's passed 2pm time for lunch!

Grocery time

It's Wednesday and it means grocery time, the bus came and picked us up at 7 and drove us to Walmart.

However this week i went alone as the other 3, whom i share food with had other things to do.

Anyway Walmart is the best, cheap and has lots of items to choose between.

Since i came here i love bagles!!! ^^
Anyway now we got food that should last for a week ^^

Runned over by a car

In my mind I was going to wake up and go to the gym before class.
Sadly I have been twisting and turning all night as my pain kept on getting worse.
It feels like a car ran over me... and the reason for all this is of course yesterday's Boot Camp. I haven't done any exercise like this for 6+ years!! (I also found out the reason why regular gym exercise is gold)
I liked doing it again but my body will take some time before it gets used to it I guess.

Therefore, no gym this morning. And I have class to go to soon.
After that I'm gonna spend my day in the lab studying.
I hope i will feel better tomorrow so I can go to the gym then.

Also today is WEDNESDAY which means Walmart day!
Got to buy foods, as my roomies are not able to go, Alejandro volunteered to help me carry stuff. I also think Felix will go, so I have two men to help me :) (to carry the heavy stuff)

Today's quote

"A better life will come your way the second you get up and start walking toward it!" ;)

Second rounds

As i woke up early today i felt like i needed another cup, large cup of coffee, to survive the day!

As usual i went to my best friend, Tim ^^

Time for class

少女時代 Oh!

As said, it was surprising that they decided to release this now, since they have released so many other songs.
Also listening to the Japanese version of Oh! is confusing. I'm not fluent in Japanese, but even with the knowledge I have in Japanese langugae I can clearly hear it's messed up! It's Japanese words but it doesn't make sense. I also asked my Japanese roommate about it and she said the same, she felt it was weird, it wasn't "real" Japanese in her opinion. We agreed that it felt like Google translation had done the translation for the lyrics!

This isn't the first time SM uses weird Japanese lyrics. Kinda tragic in many ways as the songs loses their "effect", I'd be ashamed to release it as so many people can hear all the errors!!

However for the ALL Japanese track, All my love is for you, is of course much better. I love that's it's a ballad!!! That's why they get the two stars in review....!
SM really needs to work on getting better translators or people who can write proper lyrics.


01. Oh
02. All my love is for you

Woop woop

I made it through! I managed my first boot camp session!!
It was fun, but intense of course. I do think it will be better with in time!
I also met Ashley in that class ^^ so we ended up as buddies thoughout the teamwork parts ^^

I just took a warm shower after finishing my breakfast, a 12 grain cream cheese bagle and a L size coffee from my buddy Tim Hortons ^^

Good morning to you all ^^
I feel refreshed!

Boot camp time!

Good mornin!
I made it, it, I'm awake and heading to my first boot camp session.
I hope i survive XD
It's still dark outside and i can hear my bed calling my name ^^

Even at mcd!

Even McDonalds have grasped the Gangnam style!
Psy posted this photo on his twitter, it made me burst out in laughter!

Study session

Shoko and i have found our way to the fifth floor of the Education building, we need to do home work.
But we also brought our study buddy with us, aka Tim Hortons ^^

Monday morning

Actually it's almost lunch time, but it's my first class of the day.
I'm nervous as it's time for another quiz!
I hate it, because i don't have time to think, it just have to be fast and that's why i make small mistakes! It totally sucks!

Anyway i hope for the best.
After lunch i will go to the career fair and gym, before my evening class.
Oh Yeah i also have to study for my Japanese exam~
And tomorrow i need to wake up at 5.30 in order to attend my boot camp! XD

This is me

I got so excited when Ian posted this on his Facebook! I cannot wait to read it, then again I need to get a copy first ^^
Ian Thrope is my fave swimmer, all time...!! I used to follow him competitions like a maniac, that is infront of the TV!! ^^
Also I read the book back in 2004 made by an author, who had interviewed him! I even got it signed as my "big sis" lives in Aussie!!
Anyway back to the autobiography, this time it's written by himself!! And I guess there will be lots more to be told to his life!! Got to find it online, amazon maybe?! ^^

HI-Lake Louise Alpine Centre

Long day!

Today has been a very long day.
First i went to the gym, then i headed downtown for lunch, didn't turn out like i thought..
Me and Sunny have been assigned a buddy here on school, but she knows less then we do, at least so it seems.
Anyway she kinda pissed me off to be honest with her attitude, or should i say, no attitude but more like a shadow!
It felt weird and i donno i wanna continue this to be honest. I mean i have awesome friends already and she is not really "fun" or easy.

Well well enough about the bad parts, was our cleaning day and i have been scrubbing our shower room!it wasn't easy!
But I'm happy all of us cleaned the apartment, it smells fresh now!
We also did laundry, washed my sheets and covers!

As a reward me and Shoko went to the movies downstairs, but we didn't find the location at first so we ran around the Education building for quite a while!
The movie really sucked, but we got free popcorn and soda, so at least something good came out of it XD

Time to sleep, tomorrow i have my quiz in my negotiations class, i hate the quiz part but what can i do~
Wonder if that Canadian guy will keepon sitting next to me, even though we have plenty of chairs left over XD

TVXQ - Ca-catch me

It's finally here, a FULL LENGHT album in Korean from TVXQ.
I'm really hooked on the title track "Catch me", I think it's an awesome song!!
Then again I like most of the songs on this album, and I cannot wait until their comeback stage!!
I like that they have a mix of songs, both ballads and up-tempo songs! Perfect songs to relax to as well as work out to ^^


01 Catch Me
02 인생은 빛났다 (Viva)
03 Destiny
04 비누처럼 (Like a Soap)
05 I don't know
06 꿈 (Dream)
07 How are you
08 Getaway
09 I Swear
10 Gorgeous
11 Good Night

Dinner from last night

So this is the mixed dinner, Korean and Mexican, that we came up with last night ^^

In 10 min I'm off to downtown to have lunch at a Korean restaurant!
All Asian food this weekend, feels kinda weird XD

Rise and shine

I have only slept 4,5 h after yesterday's party but I'm awake and on my way to the gym!
I think the alcohol is out of my body because i feel fine, then again the judgement could be wrong XD

Anyway I'm gonna take it easy so it's no worries!
Later I'm off to lunch with my new buddy, donno how it will turn out but me and sunny said we'd try it...
Then still kinda weird we get a buddy now, i mean we have been here for over 3 weeks, we wanted the buddy when we arrived!

Oh well...time to exercise!

Crazy night

So the evening started with me, Shoko and HyeRin went to the local alcohol shop then went back to cook dinner, Korean food!
Samgyeop sal, egg omelette, rice, kimchi...and Mexican tortilla ^^
Super delicious!
Then afterwards the other roommates joined the party, Alejandro also stopped by and we had drinks and danced to various videos on YouTube, from video games!
So fun and time passed quick!
One of Maria's friend saw us dancing from the club downstairs XD
So now 4 hours later it's time to sleep!

Tomorrow is also a busy day for me~
Today was AWESOME!
I love my roommates ^^

Awesome day

I have great friends!
Today we went to a Japanese restaurant, awesome food and of course great company!

Study time

We just came back from an amazing lunch downtown, or downtown EAST, as we never had been there before.
Anyhow we had Japanese/Korean all you can eat, it only cost us $18.33 incl tax!!
And the quality of the food was awesome, we don't have anything like it back home! My brother would love that place, ahhh... wish he was here right now ^^

Anyway as I said we are back at campus and me and Shoko has lots of studies to do, so on our way back we stopped by Tim Hortons, YES they have open on Saturdays... and we bought two LARGE cups of coffee and 2 donuts to share, study snack is always good ^^
And I'm going to the gym later tonight so it's okay XD

Saturday, 22 September 2012

Busy Saturday

I was supposed to go to the gym this morning but failed, guess i was too tired.
Anyhow now it's time to leave for Precious birthday lunch...
I think it will be fun, as i heard lots of people will go ^^

Dinner with the girls

Today i had dinner and drinks with my Korean girls and Shoko, it was a very fun evening with lots of laughs ^^

We ate ddeokbokki and kimchi ^^
Plus had wine,beer and snacks!
A perfect Friday evening ^^

Accommodation - check!

Today we continued our plans, and we booked the hostel!
It's called Lake Louise and its supposed to be really nice, one of our friends went there and said it was good. Also we got a good price for the whole weekend so we are more than happy!

Fer's exchange buddy also work for one of the rental car places and he said he'd hook us up with a good deal! So we are waiting for the result on that!
In total we are now 9 people instead of 7! As Megan and Libe also wanted to join the fun!

Today's quote

"Getting angry is actually punishing yourself with the mistakes of others.. keep smiling" ;)

Time to book our trip

Tomorrow we are gonna sit down and book our trip!
What's needed is one car and a hostel!
Some of the guys are coming over tomorrow after class to sort it out ^^

In total we are 7 people...
Jan, Felix, Alejandro, Fernanda, Sarah, SunMin and me!(3 Germans, 2 Mexicans, 1 Korean and 1 Swede)
We are all excited as Banff is supposed to be very beautiful, also the guys will do the driving which is good as they are used to drive a lot ^^

We're gonna spend 3 nights, four days going there!it will be awesome!!


Some of us are currently planning our weekend trip to Banff, we are heading there during Thanks Giving.
It's exciting yet lots to plan and organise!
Anyway the people who are going are good friends, from all over the world so i bet we will have a great time when everything is sorted!

Anyway now it's time for my Japanese class, talk to you later ^^

Thursday, 20 September 2012

I'm upset!

So i found these numbers and it's just wrong!
Swedish elderly and students live on a marginal wage, however immigrants get so much more, for doing NOTHING!
While the rest of us work our ass off!
Of course we should help them, that's what Sweden do so well!that's what we are known for but there is a different between helping and support/pay for their whole living without having to do shit!!!

I see old people recycle bottles and cans to make their living, and they have worked and served our country for years!
Then young people study and work their ass off at various part time jobs to get their daily life to work!
And single parents also works shifts etc to support their families!!
What about our own population who's struggling!?
It's our tax money! Without us there wouldn't be any money to begin with! We could use it, we need it!

The politicians who decided this already have lots of money and do not understand this!they just see it as a generous favour for people coming to our country!!
But this is really upsetting for the middle class!!!

Why do we have to support the less fortunate when we, ourselves, live in poverty!!!!

Like i said, we should help others but there is a difference on helping and pay for their whole lifestyle!!!

New tour and album!

As their AraFes is going on they announced their upcoming dometour and new album!

It has a interesting name, Popcorn!
I'm already excited and hope the pre-order for the album will come up! ^^


So i just got my paycheck notice,
What can i say paid my Japanese language books XD
And i got some money over ^^

So I'm pretty happy ^^
That money will go to my morning coffee XD

Wednesday, 19 September 2012

Yet again

So it's Wednesday, which means NEGOTIATIONs class, and case time.
I wasn't too happy with my result last week so i hope i will do better this time, i hope, then again I'm here to learn so i guess it's good to fail?! So you can stand up and become better!
Otherwise what would i do here? XD

Boot camp!

So I have decided....
I have been thinking about it since I came her, and I finally got the courage! I just need to go to the CK building and pay the fee!

I know it will be tough and I'm probably gonna regret it, and feel like dying in the beginning.
Not only because of the workout in itself, but because I have to be there at 6.10 am!!!

The reason for the morning schedule is that the afternoon one is full!
So I hope for the best, and pray I will survive as well as getting a good result from it, after all it's called BOOT CAMP ^^

Btw.. I was chooing between this and Zumba, however the Zumba class was full, guess someone wants be to try this ^^


Tuesday, 18 September 2012

Morning rush!

Today as all the other days I'm deadly tired but i donno why, i sleep more over here than i did back home.
Anyway after my breakfast i realised i needed coffee, so before going to class i stopped by a crowded Tim Hortons!
To my fear when i finally got my coffee was the extra artificial cream on top, which i thought i said no to! Oh well it was not too much so i survive this time.
Right after class I'm off to the gym before lunch and my HRM class ^^

Today's quote

"Always be cheerful; always have a smile because you are on this earth just for a while." (^_-)

I hate coins

I hate coins, and especially when i cannot figure out how much they are worth fast enough!
So every time i pay it takes time as i have to calculate the stupid value!


These days i find myself going to the gym everyday, for an hour or so, which kinda surprised me when i thought about it ^^

Monday, 17 September 2012

Happy B-day mum!


It's kinda sad I cannot be with her today... as I don't think I have ever missed her birthday...!!
However before I left Sweden I had bought her some b-day pressies so I guess she's alright ^^
I send her all my love and regards from Canada :)

The Dark Knight Rises (IMAX)

Today, I finally went to see THE DARK KNIGHT RISES, and I didn't just see it at the movies. I saw it in IMAX, which meant a MUCH MUCH bigger screen and much much better sound!
It was totally amazing and the theatre was so small so it felt like being in someones house except the screen was 100x bigger ^^
The best part, it only cost $12, it was the best experience and the movie was awesome! I think I liked it so much because of the sound and film effects from the IMAX!!
Batman was one of my fave heroes as a child so I hope this movie wasn't the last one... I mean I want more Batman, Catwoman and Robin ^^
What surprised me the most was to see so many of the cast from Inception in this movie XD
Anyway it was great, it's a movie I'd like to have in my dvd collection ^^


In Gotham City, eight years after the events of The Dark Knight, under powers granted by the Dent Act - legislation inspired by Harvey Dent - the Gotham City Police Department has nearly eradicated organized crime. Batman has disappeared and Bruce Wayne has become a recluse. Police Commissioner James Gordon feels guilty about the cover-up of Dent's crimes, and writes a resignation speech confessing the truth; however, he decides that the city is not ready to hear it. While pursuing criminals in the sewers, Gordon is captured and his speech taken by Bane. Gordon escapes and is found by patrol officer John Blake. While recuperating, Gordon promotes Blake to detective, with Blake reporting directly to him.

Wayne Enterprises is nearly bankrupt after Bruce invested in board member Miranda Tate's clean energy project for a fusion reactor, only to shut it down after discovering the reactor core could be used as a nuclear weapon. Blake - who has deduced Batman's identity - and Gordon encourage Batman to return, but Alfred Pennyworth resigns after a failed attempt to dissuade him, including informing Bruce that Rachel Dawes had intended to marry Dent before she died. Bane attacks a stock exchange and bankrupts Bruce, using fingerprints cat burglar Selina Kyle obtained of Bruce to make ruinous trades. Fearing that John Daggett - who employed Bane to aid in a hostile takeover - would gain access to the reactor, Bruce asks Tate to take control of Wayne Enterprises. Bane subsequently kills Daggett when he is no longer of use...

Christian Bale as Bruce Wayne/Batman
Michael Caine as Alfred Pennyworth
Gary Oldman as Commissioner James Gordon
Anne Hathaway as Selina Kyle/Catwoman
Tom Hardy as Bane
Marion Cotillard as Miranda Tate
Joseph Gordon-Levitt as John Blake
Morgan Freeman as Lucius Fox

Lunch time

I went to the gym this morning and just came back!
Had a nice hot shower, then i made lunch with my roomies, this is what we came up with ^^

Why now?!

To be honest... I don't think I was the only one to be surprised about this..
SNSD releases a Japanese of their hit song Oh!
But why now?? They have released other songs before this one and it feels quite long time ago, therefore... why now?!
Also when listening to this version, I'm sorry but it's MESSED up!!
My brain hurts when I listen to it, it's in English, Japanese and Korean! It's not the languge mix I dislike in itself, it's more HOW they decided to mix it.
Also it sounds TOTALLY weird in all. Kinda sad as Oh! was such a catchy song.
What I like with this video is the outfits, I like them much better than the Korean version, but I guess that's it!

Today's quote

"Make peace with your past. Life is too short and beautiful to hold grudges against people who no longer exist in your present." ^^


I donno how I could have missed this one, since I usually watch NEWS ZERO
I hope Ayaka will release this song on a cd, because I want the full version, it's such a powerful song!

Saturday, 15 September 2012

Today's quote

"At times you're sad about what's going on with your life. Just remember one permanent fact: everything CHANGES, tomorrow will be different and might be good"


Just came back home after a long day, first I went to the gym then cooking lunch and tried to study ^^
I had to head down to the library to print my homework which I later had to hand in at our faculty office, I ran there to be sure I could hand it in on time ^^ (Before Monday XD)

Then I tried to read my Negotiation book, kinda sucked....
After me, Chika, Shoko, YeJi, Sunny, Rebecca, Fernanda and Felix headed downtown to go shopping and have dinner.
I found my hat/cap that I have been searching for, for over a year!!!!!
And it only cost me $5, I got it cheaper as if u bought one u got the other 50% off and my roomie also wanted one ^^
Before heading home I went to the Dollarama and bought some stuff, body wash, clippers etc ^^

Afterwards me, Sunny and YeJi went to the KOREAN SUPERMARKET!!
Yepp they have one and it's HUGE, consider the size of Regina!! I mean it was twice the size of the one we have in Sweden and it was MUCH cheaper!!!
I bought cookies, ramyeon, dumplings, kimchi and dried laver. The 3 of us also bought ddeokbokki ddeok and eomeok! So guess what we'll have tomorrow :D
And as we paid YeJi found Korean yoghurt, and asked if she could only buy one and not 5, then the owner said he could give us one each for free!
Once again, this is why I LOVE Koreans!! ^^ They are so nice to others.

After our grocery shopping we headed back to 11th Ave and went to the Chinese Restaurant SeungHee Unni's husband told me to go to!
It was really great, we ate a lot ^^

Then now I just came back from a night out, I donno how much I have had to drink but obviously I can write this so not that much XD

Anyway got to sleep, tomorrow is STUDY day (T_T)

Friday, 14 September 2012

This is Canada!

So say something that's different from the US, well there are lots of things, but something that's maybe the easiest thing to spot is the Canadian brand TIM HORTONS!
The Canadians love this brand!

Then again, it's cheap and good so you get much for the little money you spend!!

Also i won a $10 gift card last week so I'll use it well whenever i will need it ^^

This is how my campus looks during lunch time XD


So I had my Japanese class until 8pm and when I came home I got dinner served within 2 min!!
My japanese friends/roommates Chika and Shoko had made salmon with various veggies and mayo!
It was so delicious and so awesome to come home and have a home cooked meal!!

Thursday, 13 September 2012

Feel good

Today, once again, I went to the gym.. however I arrived later than I thought since they had evacuated my whole apartment building, for no reason!? At least no reason was told.
Anyway I felt really good and I managed to get rid off 500 kcal in 40 min which was quite good ^^
I'm going back there tomorrow morning ^^

Then for lunch me and Chika an easy lunch; we mixed tuna and mayo, fried eggs and baked bagles in the owen and had some veggies.
Super easy yet delicious!!

I have managed to read some more in my negotiations book however I almost fell asleep, yep it's that kind of book!
Now I'm off to my HRM class, after I have my Japanese language class!!


A little bit behind

I usually spend my evenings by watching Korean drama series, however due to school work, and hanging out with my new friends over here i cannot seem to find the time~
Which is both good and bad i suppose, also these days there are just too many shows so no matter the time, it'd be kinda impossible XD

The only ones i really have to see is 아름다운 그대에게 and 메이퀸 ^^
And of course 신화방송, it's totally hilarious, i never want the show to end! XD

Why so sleepy?

I think... that I sleep more than usual these days, however I do wake up once or twice every night for no reason.
But then in the morning I'm super tired, I don't get it...!?
I wonder if it's because of my studies, new environment etc?

I wish it'd stop because I feel so lazy inside!!

Food for thought

Who's copying who?

"iPhone 5 the biggest thing to happen to iPhone since iPhone," translation we didn't change much. All the upgrades (dimensions, display, camera, LTE, weight, battery, etc) makes it sound like a Samsung Galaxy SII and SIII.

Now who is copying who?

What's your dream?

What's your dream?
What's your goal in life?
What would you like to do? Say? And feel?

What's this all about?
What you want life, all that Jesus can take care of! He's always walking beside you, though the good times and through the sad times, he's the friend who never abandons you no matter how difficult it is!
All you need to do is to open your heart and to believe!!

Wednesday, 12 September 2012

Food for thought

So happy I'm not...

As i think some of my classes are a bit difficult, non of them are like this one~
I'd die if i had to take this kind of maths class XD

Lots in a short amount of time

I feel stressed and tired, I have break outs on my face which I blame the Canadian weather for and my skin is so dry I had to buy an extra cream for my face!!

Then as school started I have lots to study and get used to!
There are some things that makes me go C R A Z Y.
And it's much to deal with at once, when everything is new.
At the same time I wanna hang out with my new friends, go to the gym etc.

There are tooooooo many things I wanna do!! And so little time.
I have some very interesting classes but lots to study and read!

Anyway time to sleep now before I hit my head on my computer ^^


Today's quote

"Being worried is like walking on a treadmill. It keeps you busy but it doesn't get you anywhere."

Tuesday, 11 September 2012

Why why?

I don't get it, why do the uni have to use such expensive book for my Japanese class?!
It cost $265!!! It's like robbing me XD

Anyway i don't have a choice, i need to buy it....
So after my HRM class i have to run to the bookstore to get it!
Then have a quick dinner and head for class! My TRs are so busy days! I'm happy i only have one class tomorrow, however i have lots of homework too~

Even though i like the Canadian uni more, i prefere the Swedish way of studying, one subject at the time~ XD

Japanese language leveltest

Today i finally had my leveltest!
And i did very well, i thought I'd be upgraded one level, but no, i managed to pass on to level 3!

The reason why they even tested me for level 3 was that the class times for level 2 didn't work for me as i also have other classes to attend.
Actually I'd also be a bit late for the level 3 class but the teacher said she'd just let the others wait and do other things at the time!
How awesome isn't that? XD

Also during the tests both teachers talked in Japanese with me and since i obviously understood everything they said they'd let me skip a few levels!

So i got all the paperwork, the head teacher even lent me her book, so when i came back home i started to look into it and realized I'd be studying A LOT!
Too much even, i cried when i saw all the Chinese characters i need to learn every week!

So in the end...i went back to the teachers office and told them I'd just take level one, even though i pretty much passed the exam for it already XD
Because i already have four other HEAVY classes and i also want to enjoy my time here in Canada and not spend every free minute i have to study!!

And as i don't have to take any certain class there is no pressure, i just need to pass them and get my credits basically!!

My very first

Today when i came to class i got free coffee and my very first donut! Well i have had one before but never on this side of the world!!
Both coffee and donut came from Canadas beloved Tim Hortons! ^^
I actually only wanted the coffee but the ones handed them out said i had to try Canadas finest XD

Regina Shopping

Today 12 of the exchange students decided to go shopping downtown...
I bought some more shoes, to take with me back home to Sweden, YES I do know I have only been here for a week, but these loafers are so nice I didn't want to miss out on buying extras before they are sold out!!

I also bought some supplies for the house as well as a night cream, my skin is not happy these days, it's too dry in Canada!!

I also bought a pair of slippers to have at home (like crocs shoes), a dress and a cardigan, all very cheap, I was surprised when I saw the pricetag!! I don't even think that H&M is this cheap!
Anyway, Happy days!! And we don't really have many cloths stores to choose between which kinda sucks but it's also good for my wallet, Got to save money for the travel around Christmas and New Years. Me and SunMin or Sunny, as she calls herself in Canada, will probably travel together ^^

Today's quote

"Keep your head high, But keep your dreams higher"

My life is a Hollywood produced movie!

I still believe I'm living in a movie....a Hollywood produced one... Uni life is kinda like one XD And today while waiting for the bus home from downtown, we witnessed a robbery, with action and shouting, so we left the park, then close to the bus stop this guy with blood on his face and clothes came up to us asking for a smoke, I kindly said we didn't have any, as soon as I had replied, the Police showed up and arrested him for robbery!! (NOT the same as the first one) So yeah.. my life in this Hollywood produced movie continues....

Lots in one day

This morning i woke up and went to Walmart, with my Canadian neighbour, it was my first time to go there so i went through all aisles ^^
And i bought a lot of stuff!!
A dress, sweater, shoes~ ^^
And all was on sale so i didn't spend that much ^^

So now we are waiting to go home!
I got to study a bit too~

Great evening

Today has been a mixed day, during daytime i enjoyed working out and did some pre-studying for my classes next week.

In the evening i met up with the other exchange students!
We went to the food party, ate some sushi~ but it was kinda boring so instead we went to buy alcohol and had a party of our own.
I spent most time with Sarah and Sunny. As the evening went by i met another Sarah, a Canadian ^^
We got along very well and talked for hours, and decided to go to walmart in the morning, so i guess it's time for me to sleep now ^^

Got to do laundry before i head out!!

University CFL

So tonight we, many of the exchange students went to support our school football team, The Rams.
It was quite an experience, also as we are not familiar with the rules we asked the Canadian around us, they were very nice, and i think they actually enjoyed teaching us ^^

Our team won so it was a blast~ ^^

Today's quote

"Never hate the times in life where you have fallen or failed. Failures don't define is what makes us stronger" ^^

The Rams

So i just went upstairs, put on all my winter clothes, seriously not kidding!
Even winter socks!

The sun is shining and people wear tops and shorts, however me and a lot of various exchange students are heading to the homegame for our uni. Football team, They are called the Rams ^^

It's said to be only 5 degrees, therefore my choice of outfit ^^

So yesterday!!

Already a month ago did Psy top the SWEDISH youtube channel with his comeback hit - Gangnam Style!!
However it is NOW, the video gets to see the daylight in Swedish media.
If it would have had been an american artist having the same, it would have had been known a long time ago. However because it's "unknown" we rather wait with the NEWS until it gets old and still present it as NEW.

Isn't it kinda ironic??
To me the song is still awesome, but kinda "old" consider all new songs that pops-up every week!!!

Or maybe I should just be thankful to Swedish media that they mention it, however they just posted the video and no words or article about it or stating it's S. Korean.
They named it "the crazy horse dance". However the majority of the Swedish people will not understand the comic side Psy tries to show in this video.
So once again, people will just believe "oh.. another crazy Asian man".

It's sad but I cannot change the world...yet we call ourselves Global!!

Only one thing is clear.. Swedish journalists sucks!! There are lots of articles, videoclibs, news reports in ENGLISH that cover this video and it's meaning!!
PSY has now also signed wth Justin Biebers record label in the States!!!

Also.. Psy always do funny stuff!!
However there are lots more to K-pop than just him!! So don't be taken by surprise or think all Asian bands and artists are like him ^^

On CNN - It passed 10 million long time ago ^^

Swedes go crazy for SHM, Koreans (and rest of the world) for Psy

What a day

Today was a hectic day!
In the morning i had two classes, then i went to buy books at the used books place down at riddle centre!
I got 2 books i need for ONLY $63, retail price was 230!!
Well back i had lunch with Chika, we made mac & cheese with fried egg and some veggies.
Then i rushed to the Faculty to drop one of my classes and change to another. I changed to Japanese.

Then i went to my human recourse class, i really like the prof. for that class, she was really nice.
The only bad with that class is one guy who thinks he knows it all!i want to kick him!you know like people do in movies XD

After that i rushed back home, had a super quick dinner, Japanese chicken and noodles.
Then i rushed to my Japanese class.
However it was too basic for me, even the teacher could see it and she told me i should do a placement test to enter a higher level class, since this one only would cover to write hiragana, katakana and 6 kanji.
I have no idea when the test will be and how the outcome will be, but i want to enter "1 b" instead of "1 a" ^^

I'm so tired after this very long day!
Tomorrow morning i will go to the gym, then have breakfast with my roommates and study, i have some reading to do! I have a quiz for my negotiations class on Monday!!

Thursday, 6 September 2012


Look, i found these on facebook, wonder who made them, i think it's totally awesome ^^
Wonder how the taste is though ^^;;


So this is breakfast and lunch, since i have classes during lunch time ^^
The best part, its free!!
American styled pancakes, blueberry muffin and coffee ^^

Today's quote

"If you can't amaze people with your intelligence, then confuse them with your bullshit." :P


Today me and 3 friends, two of them are my roommates, went to a grocery store to buy food!
Oh boy we bought a lot!
We spent 134CAD ^^
But we bought lots of stuff, all various foods, but we bought big packs since we are 4 people who share, so in a way it wasn't that expensive, it just felt like a lot ^^
At the store i found many strange things!! ONLY in Canada stuff XD


Call me maybe

My roommate just showed me this video, its hilarious!
Cannot believe someone would have time to make such video, however it's awesome! ^^

First day of class!

So i just grabbed a cup of coffee at Starbucks and I'm on my way to my first class of the semester!
Hope it will go fine ^^



I donno why I'm this tired, I feel like I don't do anything but sleep XD
Not really but I guess u understand what I mean.

Today we had orientation, but to be honest it kinda pissed me off, because 90% of the info was of no use as me and my friends are here on exchange for ONLY one semester, so we need no bank account, health care bla bla.
So I sat in a big classroom for 5 hours just wishing I was somewhere else XD
But I think they had organized a lot, more than my home university has ever done!!

I still feel like I live in a movie!! The feeling of uni life has changed, this is how it's supposed to be.

Tomorrow I have my first, and only for the day, class!! I wonder how it will be, kinda excited.
Still wonder if I should drop or change one of the classes to Japanese language class as the Intl. Student advisor here told us to ONLY take 3, if possible. So that we also can enjoy the life and stay in Canada!!
So we'll see, I'll attend my classes on Thursday too then kinda try to figure out which one to drop!!
I'm thinking Negotiations or Small Businesses.

Anyway time to sleep now... got to be fresh for tomorrow!!

I want a turtle ^^

They are selling this little "creature" in Korea!
Its a Melon cream bread shaped as a turtle!

I'd so want one, i love melon bread, however not with cream, but I'd make this an exception since it's shaped like this ^^

What about you?Don't you want one?

Metro journalism

So i usually read the paper Metro almost every day, when going to school or work!

This article is hilarious, and sad, the quality is quite bad, i mean even i without a degree in journalism could write this crap XD

It's about the local police in the town of Uppsala in Sweden, they arrested or rather just picked up a drunk man and took him down to the station to let him sleep it off! WITH HIM he had a cat, and the police gave the cat a cell of his own, they saying the CAT is not under any suspicion of any crime!!

Still awesome!

This song has been the it song during the summer and it's still awesome!

Also congrats to Psy who has signed with Justin Biebers label in the states!

BBQ in the park

So today around lunch time a bunch of international students gathered up in the park around the lake for bbq! it was a really nice time, reminded of a American/Canadian movie, where you see uni students do it!! ^^
I think we were over 20 people!

As the weather was great, a bunch of us decided to walk back home after the bbq, it took quite some time but was really relaxing ^^

Always a first

So in all my life i have been blessed by not being stung by a wasp, then i go to Canada and guess what happens!!
Yep the stupid wasp just had to do it, hurt a lot but i survived!!kinda sucked though, it still hurts a bit, or it itches..

Anyway the bbq i had with the other international students was awesome! A great Monday ^^
