A Welcome Surprise


, , , , ,

When thinking about moving to Sweden I know there was a lot that I had to think about. Actually if I take one step back from moving to Sweden and say when I started a relationship with Nadja there was a lot that we had to take into consideration. Small things for some people turned out to be very important things to us just for the simple fact that we were two different countries.

To have a creative outlet is to have a personal favorite form of meditation. We seem to have so much going on in our lives that seems to stand in the way of personal growth, by the end of the day it can seem as if you have done nothing with yourself. We tell ourselves that we need to “do this” and need to “take care of that”, yet it is so very easy to forget about the simple things that relax you, the things that drown out everything else in the world if only for just a moment. After treating myself with a creative outlet or some form of meditation (writing, taking pictures, working out, skateboarding, cooking, etc…) I can almost guarantee the first words out of my mouth will be “Wow that was fun, why don’t I do that more often?” Yet more often seems to come not often at all. I know what busy lives many people have, Hell I come from a large family whom need a table for 15 every time we go out for dinner, so busy was a part of growing up. However today I feel that being “to busy” is really actually another way of saying “I’m content with my current life of being lazy and unprepared.” That may sound harsh and I’m not saying that I don’t sometimes fall into this category however I am saying that we need to find time for ourselves. Actually we need to plan time into our lives so that we can treat ourselves to the things that make us feel like we are free from everything except for what we are doing that very moment; all while the look of happiness sits in front of our teeth. I believe that by treating ourselves to things we enjoy more often than not will easily reflect the image of enjoyment onto those whom see you on your day to day.

This was just something that was on my mind because writing here has been the creative outlet thatI never knew I loved and however I may not have as much time as I wish I had, it is up to me to treat myself to a little bit of writing and relaxation 🙂 So now that this is done, I think I’ll go have a coffee. Haha So until next time I hope you enjoyed this.

What am I doing?!

So if you frequent my blog I am sure you find yourself asking yourself, “What is he doing with this site?” I know I have gone through a few different looks but when it comes to the appearance and aesthetics of my site it seems to say a lot about who I am; NEVER PLEASED! Haha but really I want to be satisfied with the way that my blog looks and feels when you are reading and watching what is going on in my life. I am a perfectionist with certain parts of my life and not in others, so as I am now finding out I am a bit crazy when it comes to this site. This is a free blog hosted my WordPress so you really only have so many Theme Options therefore I am just trying a few out. I try to do it for an hour or so during the night, but the problem is that my night is many of my readers day. So that plan just really doesn’t seem to work. It is my long term goal to get rid of the .Wordpress ending on my URL but right now it is really not what I should be spending my money on. Nadja and I are moving into an apartment in less than a month so if I am not working to make some money, I am working on saving my money which I swear is sometimes harder than making it. AHHHHH 😉 I guess if you take one step at a time you will soon reach the top.

So anyways what I am trying to say is please bare with me through the changes because I am going to try to leave it where it is now. I HOPE! Please feel free to let me know what you think about the new look and I will take you feedback into account when making any other changes. Until next time, have a good day.



“Twenty years from now
you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do
than by the things you did.
So throw off the bowlines.
Sail away from the safe harbor.
Catch the trade winds in your sails.
Explore. Dream. Discover.”
– Mark Twain -“

Cheer, I mean SKÅL!

During our dinner we acted like Swedes and looked for reasons to sing. Why would Swedes look for reasons to sing you ask me? Well if we are singing we are soon drinking, but then again if we are singing then we must have already been drinking because who the hell would be singing at the dinner table without already drinking?! I guess that’s why we started drinking before we sat down for dinner 🙂 Skål!
