A spontaneous night
Last weekend I went out spontaneously, I supposed to just chill and drink some beer then fall asleep. But it didn't happened, Sofian and his friend from Sweden Silvia was planning to go out that Saturday night. I joined them spontaneously. We went to a club near by called " Arena ". It was a nice club that it took us maybe 20 minutes to walk. Great music! We did't stayed long, but spend the last hours at Sofians home and ate some food. He always eat food before he go to sleep even how drunk he is and he even brush his teeth and all that.
I left his home when the sun started to come up at 8 ( by the way we are now neighbor just two streets from each other ) and just fall down on the bed with my party clothes on. Got no energy for brushing my teeth or changing my clothes.
I got a hangover day after specially when I mixed beer and vodka, ooh so bad. Luckily I ate and drank a lot of water, so it was less headache.

Back from the grave and I say welcome to my crib
You could say that " alot " happened since the last time I posted something. One good news that happened is that I finally got my own flat that I was looking forward for. It was a lot of job looking for the flat that I wanted, calling and went to the open house from one to another, meet the agency etc. It´s funny because, the flat that I thought that I wanted at the first place wasn´t for me at all and got something that was more way better than I expected and IN the middle of the city too. And guess what? It´s IN MY FAVORITE STREET to live. As I always say, never complain if you don´t get the things that you want, because there is always A reason for everything and sooner or later you will be more greatful.
I don´t even remember my to do list this year, but I´ll check off the "getting my own flat " in my A list. And that feels really good and it´s also because I´ve been living here and there this last seven years in Barcelona, wanted my own space and place was something I really needed to do the things that I always wanted. I am really happy, I almost lived in my new place for a month now and I am lovin` it. I do not have any furniture yet, since I wanted to have my own furniture and want to design it myself so it feels cozy and homie the way I want it. For the moment I just have one big bed, so next in my list is a Sofa I guess...and not just any kind of sofa. Since I now have my own flat, I will also change my categories a bit and add "My flat in my own interior design" ...something to it.
MY FLAT INFO
Location: located in Barcelona city, yet not right in the middle. Its the perfect place where you see more of locals than tourist. You can just walk 10-15 minutes to go to the big shopping area. Just beside a park and small restaurants. Close to everything the banks, the pharmacy, fruit shops, grocery stores etc. Good place for the dogs.
Area: its 40 square meter, big enough very open, much bigger than in the picture. Newly renovated from the bottom to the top. It´s in the second floor and it`s swedish home stardard :) You do can drink tap water which is very unlikely in this city.
Price: The rent is 500 euro / month without bills. In Sweden it sounds very expensive, but again I live in the center and it is very hard to get a flat in the city newly renovated for this price. So I think is fare price.
The bills in Spain is not much at all, let say the water and electricity comes every 2nd or third month, but counting on every month would cost around around 30 euro max 40 euro.
The cons: The building itself is so old and ugly when you get in. No elevator, its so old fashion, but do not judge a book by its cover, cos my flat is the only renovated flat in the building :) The stairs are terrible and thats the mostly buildings in Barcelona. I can´t show you a pic of how ugly it is lol.
The pros: I love I love how they redesign this flat. The kitchen is elevated from the floor ( which I show more of some other time) is so cute and pretty and the toilet, the floor and bedroom all are so well made. I´m so happy with my wooden floor, that keep me warm with my socks in the winter. And ofcourse tap water take the price. If not I have to buy everyday like many others just to have a drinking water. My balcony is good enough, could be bigger but hey we can´t have everything in life.
So now you get a little glimpsed of my new place :)
I strive to be like the greatest people who have ever lived
I am busy busy and busy a lot of study and after the new year it took a while to go back to my old routine. In two weeks I have my last course/subject and then I am finally finish with my study. I won't continue to university like I have planned from the beginning (going the other direction) but for sure in the future I will continue to study. I have other plans to do. I also got a fulltime job that I applied starting next week for a danish company. Hopefully I pass the one month trial and after that I will be moving to the city. This must be my busiest year and I'll give everything and sacrifice everything to fullfil it. Let this be the best year yet to come!

Tea and a blankett
After 4 years I finally decided to go brunette and it actually look much better than I expected. So I am very satisfied with the results. I was tired of the "Beyoncé" look , I needed this contrast from my skin and hair and my "signature" golden brown hair color just became boring. Well see how long this brunette hair of mine last, but I don't think I go black, it makes my skin pale in the winter. The hair color supposed to come out lighter, but it came out darker and it also looks like I have highlights done just like the color of the box ( below). I really like the results and the highlights though, one color is boring, the highlights adds the warmth on my hair. I didn't like the brown with red tones and copper which I didn't want to achieve, now its more kinda chocolate brown mix with dark brown.
The product that I always use is from a famous Spanish hairdresser called LLONGUERAS, also the same brand when I colored my hair golden brown. The two package didn't gave me the full coverage, that's why I have highlights which doesn't look bad at all.
So what do you think? Blonde or Brunette?
Strive for progress
What is your 2014 goals? A new beginning =)
Celebrations is not over here yet!
I had a great Lovely christmas and I hope you all had the same. Christmas is Spain is different than in Sweden, because here they have more celebrations. When the christmas day is over in most countries, it is not over yet until the 3 kings day which is the 6th of january here in Spain. It's a country of fiestas where people have a lot of celebrations. Most people gives gifts in christmas, but here some give gifts in the 3 kings day and some gives both in christmas and the 3 kings day. But in Rubén's family they give gifts in the 3 kings day ( luckily for me I won't have to find gifts until after new year), it will buy me some time, because I have no freakin idea what to buy this year.
We had this so called "Noche buena" the day 24th with his family and some relatives with a lot of food, specially the shrimps and wine love it :). Then the day after the 25 we had christmas day lunch with the same people with one additional person ( Ruben's cousin Alba) came from Manchester where she lives for a moment. The christmas is about a lot of food and family bonding. I probably won't have to eat for Days hahah.
I also Went for shopping and bought clothes for myself with my long time friend and first friend in Barcelona, her name is Irene. This girl would be my shopping partner, she Always find a great Place to shop for a great price. And I Always come with great Products. I will show pics tomorrow about the stuff that I bought.
Today it was also a special day, but we couldn't stay because we had to pick up my puppy that I leaved with a dog nanny. I only paid until today, so we had to pick him up. He had a great time playing with the other dog that they also had.
Next week on tuesday, we are going back to Barcelona again to celebrate new year, my two closest friends will come from Sweden, so maybe I will celebrate new year with them after 12. I don't know what's their plan yet, so nothing is for sure though.
Its pretty Cold over here, it was very windy today. Now I am going to do some stuff and hoping to go to sleep at 12, I was sleeping earlier for an hour or two, so I am wide awake. Tomorrow I have work from 13-18 and then do some study.
I finally found something that I would love to do for the rest of my life
Goodmorning I am taking my morning breakfast shake and multivitamin, I managed to Wake up at around 09:00 and I am tired to Wake up late and have the day wasted. Dreams don't come true by being lazy and by sleeping all day. I will regret it for the rest of my Life if I don't change, but everyday I am getting better. When you want something so bad you can make anything that seem impossible to possible. And I never want something so bad as the things that I want right now. Lets shot for the star!
Take care of your health
Health is priceless and I would eat or drink anything to stay healthy and never get sick for the rest of my Life. I haven't been sick for quiet long now and normally I have weak immune system and my defenses is not strong, so whenever it's Cold for example I get sick easily. How healthy you eat you can see it, how healthy really is the food that you Think was healthy by checking your urine. Everytime you pee after the food you eat you can see the color. The clearer your urine is the healthy you are. So Think about it! For instants if you eat a Big Mac form Mcdonald and more if you drink coke, your urine would be yellow or even worse orange. That food is nasty! Healthy food for me is as Close to nature as possible, that would mean no added or very Little salt and peppars, no sugar, no dairy, no process carbs ( such as spagetti or wheat) and no sauce. But rice and root food like sweet potato are good because they are organic, they don't go under the process Before we buy them and eat it, but they are naturally as it is.
My breakfast is Herbalife shake formula with low fat milk + half banana + ice. Its vanilla flavor. It's good for people that don't have time and want a fast breakfast, but at the same time it gives you all the nutrients and vitamins you need for the day along with the multivitamin. Herbalife is very healthy theres no bullshit in the Product and I recommend it to everyone who need an extra kick in the morning or out of time and just want to make sure that they have all the vitamins and nutrients that they need in one meal.
Now I am going to do some maths because I have exams going on. Wish me luck =)

10:45 in the morning
No matter how "early" I go to bed I Always end up waking up at 10:45 in the morning. Which is very late, no wonder why the day is short for me. But when it's Winter and Cold you just want to tuck in the bed and lie there for a while. I am not a morning person, but I Wake up very early if I really have too.
At 15 ( 3pm) I have to work, decided to work 2 hours extra, normally I start at 17 (5pm) and finish at 21 ( 9 pm ). I work 2 hours extra when I got the chance, now where there are more Projects to do and they need people to work more hours. Until then I am going to study Before my next exam of maths.
How is your wednesday like?
