The Maldives

I was reading and she wrote about her desire to travel somewhere. I have been stumbling a lot these past days, thank you my sweet H. for sending me all the stumbles :-) They always bring a smile to my face haha. Many of the pages she sends me are images of wonderful and tropical places so going back to the travelling, one place I have put on top of my list (honeymoonwise haha) and it is the Maldives. One day, my precious friends, one day I will spend a couple of weeks on the magical islands of the Maldives. Everytime I see a picture of this wonderful place my heart melts and I instantly fall into the land of dreams. I cannot wait for the day when I will walk on the white sandy beaches, jumping in the clear blue water, and ending my day watching the sun set right by the water while sipping on a glass of wine or why not a tropical drink with the man of my dreams :-)

For now I will watch OFF THE MAP and enjoy the cold sun Sweden has to offer on this serene Sunday.

Until later beloved friends...

Horrible wake up call

For the past couple of days someone has been calling me from "unknown" number and have done so every time I have not been close to my phone. Needless to say I started getting annoyed because they would not leave any voicemails and I had no clue who was calling. Last night I was engulfed by the wonderful stories of Off The Map and I went to bed around 5 am. This morning, with many disruptions from my mother playing with Nala, I had no want of leaving my bed early at all. I get a phone call thinking it might be for an interview of some sort, lo and behold, unknown! I pick up the phone, barely getting my voice out, my eyes still shut, and with a stuffy nose, only to find this highpitched happyjollyohmygodshepickedupokIamsoexcitedIcannotcontrollmyvoicefromshrieking girl on the other end. "HAAIIIIIJJJJJJJJ!!! I got a letter saying I should call you so I can start in the group with UNICEF Stockholm!!!!" The only thing going through my head is ARE YOU SERIOUS!!!! Why the hell would you call over and over again, not leave a voicemail, or hey you even have the bloody (read a worse word than that) option to email! So, I simply told her to please email your interest and you will get a welcome email back. This seemed to blow her mind because she had no idea what to say after that. It is like I told her to take her phone and shove it where the sun doesn't shine. All she said was "uhm, ok, yea, ok, uhm, yea, I can do that, yea, ok. Thanks" and then she doesn't hang up the phone so I can hear her say..."should I hang up, I don't know". That is when I kindly hang up the phone for her to show her what to do when a conversation is over.

Conclusion of this is; do not, I repeat, do not ever call me in the morning with a shriek of joy because I have the worst morning mood and your giddiness will not make it go away...Your giddiness is my greenturningmonster trigger as anger is the Hulk's trigger. Now you know, never let it happen again, okthankyoubye :-)

Until later wonderful people

I love this song and it reminds me of my time in Law School when I hit the replay button on my stereo over and over again. It was playing my Latin songs my dear M. gave to me and when I heard this song on the second episode of Off The Map (which I am in love with by the way!!) I googled and found it so now I will post it here so you can enjoy it as well :-)

Until later my beloved friends


Telling jokes

I read this joke and I must say I laugh every time I re-tell it (could be a reason why my sister thinks I am terrible at telling jokes). I have to tell you how it went down when I was telling it to my mom.

Me: Hey mom, wanna hear a joke?
Mom: Yea, sure.
Me: Ok, so there was a blonde girl and it was her birthday. One of her gifts was a gift card for "flying a helicopter" lesson.
Mom: Oook....
Me: So, she gets bored one day and decides to use this gift card. When she gets there the instructor tells her there is only one helicopter left and it only has one seat left...
Mom: Aha, ok..
Me: The instructor asks her if he shows her how everything works, will she be able to fly on her own? She tells him that she will...
Mom: Oh My God. Nooo...
Me: (I start giggling now) So, she gets in the helicopter and the instructor tells her she needs to report back every 400 ft. And the blonde girl tells him alright and takes off...
Mom: Oh no, she dies huh??!!!! (now she is giggling/laughing)
Me: Wait wait (I start laughing a bit more) so after 400 ft she reports back saying; "oh my god this is soo much fun!!"
Mom: She is gonna die isn't she??!!! (Laughing loud now)
Me: (Hard to control my voice because I am laughing too much) No, wait!! Ok, so 800 ft she reports back; "I could do this all day!!!!" and the instructor is happy she can manage the helicopter. 1200 ft is coming up but no report from the blonde girl. The instructor waits and waits...
Me: (Me hysterically laughing trying to get the words out while trying to stop the tears running down my cheeks) Nohohohohoho..
Mom: (Scream laughing and can't move from her place) SHE DIIIEEEEEEDDDDD I KNOW SHE DIIEED...SHE IS GONNA DIE RIGHT???
Me: (gave into laughing and crying and just tried to catch my breath after a couple minutes) ok ok ok...aaaahhhhh...ok *sigh and wipe my tears* so the instructor goes out and he sees the helicopter shoots down from the sky and crashes next to the airport...
Mom: AHAHAHAHA SHE DIED!!! (Bending forward, holding her stomach because she is laughing too hard).
Me: (Laughing harder) No, stop!! I need to finish this joke today!!! ok, so the instructor rushes over to the helicopter and sees that the blonde girl miraculously made it without a scratch. "What happened up there? I didn't get a report after 800 ft!" and the girl answered; "I don't know. I got cold so I turned off the big fan" HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH
Sister: (From the other room and very calmly) The joke wasn't that good.
Mom: Oh, hush you...(wiping tears from her eyes)
Sister: (after I go to see her) You really suck at telling jokes.
Me: (Still laughing) But you didn't think it was funny?! Come on...blonde off BIG fan!!!!!!
Sister: (Staring with blank eyes at me) No.

Now, I haven't gotten that reaction from anyone since but I get a lot more laughs when I tell people how my mom reacted. I don't know if my mom is morbid but lord did she want that girl to die hahahahahahaha but that is the reaction when telling a joke in my house--well, with my dad it's *say the joke, get a laugh, and then having to re-tell it a couple of times and sometimes even explaining it and get another laugh* Ahhh crazy family. Well, I just wanted to share that with you on this fine Sunday evening:-)

Until later jokers!!

Weird love

Dr. Seuss Quote About Love:

"We are all a little weird and life's a litte weird, and when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall in mutual weirdness and call it love."

What women really say

I am a woman and I agree with this post 100%!! Please read this and learn!

Until later teachers and students


I've learnt that...

You cannot make someone love you. All you can do is be someone who can be loved. The rest is up to them.

No matter how much I care, some people just don't care back.

It takes years to build up trust, and only seconds to destroy it.

It's not what you have in your life, but who you have in your life that counts.

You can do something in an instant that will give you a heartache for life.

No matter how thin you slice it, there are always two sides.

You should always leave loved ones with loving words. It may be the last time you see them.

We are responsible for what we do, no matter how we feel.

There are people who love you dearly, but just don't know how to show it.

True friendship continues to grow, even over the longest distance. Same goes for true love.

Just because someone doesnt love you the way you want them to, doesn't mean they don't love you with all they have.

Maturity has more to do with what types of experiences you've had and what you've learned from them and less to do with how many birthdays you've celebrated.

No matter how good a friend someone is, they're going to hurt you every once in a while and you must forgive them for that.

No matter how bad your heart is broken the world doesn't stop for your grief.

Just because two people argue, it doesn't mean they don't love each other.And just because they don't argue, it doesn't mean they do.

We don't have to change friends if we understand that friends change.

You shouldn't be so eager to find out a secret. It could change your life forever.

There are many ways of falling and staying in love.

No matter how many friends you have, if you are their pillar, you will feel lonely and lost at the times you need them most.

The people you care most about in life are taken from you to soon.

Although the word "love" can have many different meanings, it loses value when overly used.

Love is not for me to keep, but to pass on to the next person I see.

There are people who love you dearly but just don't know how to show it.

Even when I have pains, I don't have to be one.

Every day you should reach out and touch someone. People love that human touch-holding hands, a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back.

I still have a lot to learn......

Life lessons to take to heart!

When I read this entry by Eric Allen Bell I literally started to weep. Kindness in people is rare and when it happens, wonderful things occur. I wanted to embed the whole thing but could not find the option so I copied and pasted it! Here you can read what made me cry out of pride (or oversensitivity)

Five Lessons About How To Treat People
-- Author Unknown

1. First Important Lesson - "Know The Cleaning Lady"

During my second month of college, our professor gave us a pop quiz. I was a conscientious student and had breezed through the questions, until I read the last one: "What is the first name of the woman who cleans the school?"

Surely this was some kind of joke. I had seen the cleaning woman several times. She was tall, dark-haired and in her 50s, but how would I know her name? I handed in my paper, leaving the last question blank. Just before class ended, one student asked if the last question would count toward our quiz grade.

"Absolutely," said the professor. "In your careers, you will meet many people. All are significant. They deserve your attention and care, even if all you do is smile and say "hello."

I've never forgotten that lesson. I also learned her name was Dorothy.

2. Second Important Lesson - "Pickup In The Rain"

One night, at 11:30 p.m., an older African American woman was standing on the side of an Alabama highway trying to endure a lashing rainstorm. Her car had broken down and she desperately needed a ride. Soaking wet, she decided to flag down the next car.

A young white man stopped to help her, generally unheard of in those conflict-filled 1960s. The man took her to safety, helped her get assistance and put her into a taxicab.

She seemed to be in a big hurry, but wrote down his address and thanked him. Seven days went by and a knock came on the man's door. To his surprise, a giant console color TV was delivered to his home.

A special note was attached. It read: "Thank you so much for assisting me on the highway the other night. The rain drenched not only my clothes, but also my spirits. Then you came along. Because of you, I was able to make it to my dying husband's bedside just before he passed away. God bless you for helping me and unselfishly serving others."

Sincerely, Mrs. Nat King Cole.

3. Third Important Lesson - "Remember Those Who Serve"

In the days when an ice cream sundae cost much less, a 10 year-old boy entered a hotel coffee shop and sat at a table. A waitress put a glass of water in front of him. "How much is an ice cream sundae?" he asked. "50¢," replied the waitress.

The little boy pulled his hand out of his pocket and studied the coins in it.

"Well, how much is a plain dish of ice cream?" he inquired. By now more people were waiting for a table and the waitress was growing impatient. "35¢!" she brusquely replied.

The little boy again counted his coins. "I'll have the plain ice cream," he said. The waitress brought the ice cream, put the bill on the table and walked away. The boy finished the ice cream, paid the cashier and left.

When the waitress came back, she began to cry as she wiped down the table. There, placed neatly beside the empty dish, were two nickels and five pennies. You see, he couldn't have the sundae, because he had to have enough left to leave her a tip.

4. Fourth Important Lesson - "The Obstacles In Our Path"

In ancient times, a King had a boulder placed on a roadway. Then he hid himself and watched to see if anyone would remove the huge rock. Some of the king's wealthiest merchants and courtiers came by and simply walked around it. Many loudly blamed the King for not keeping the roads clear, but none did anything about getting the stone out of the way.

Then a peasant came along carrying a load of vegetables. Upon approaching the boulder, the peasant laid down his burden and tried to move the stone to the side of the road. After much pushing and straining, he finally succeeded. After the peasant picked up his load of vegetables, he noticed a purse lying in the road where the boulder had been. The purse contained many gold coins and a note from the King indicating that the gold was for the person who removed the boulder from the roadway. The peasant learned what many of us never understand - "Every obstacle presents an opportunity to improve our condition."

5. Fifth Important Lesson - "Giving When It Counts"

Many years ago, when I worked as a volunteer at a hospital, I got to know a little girl named Liz who was suffering from a rare and serious disease. Her only chance of recovery appeared to be a blood transfusion from her 5-year-old brother, who had miraculously survived the same disease and had developed the antibodies needed to combat the illness. The doctor explained the situation to her little brother, and asked the little boy if he would be willing to give his blood to his sister. I saw him hesitate for only a moment before taking a deep breath and saying, "Yes, I'll do it if it will save her."

As the transfusion progressed, he lay in bed next to his sister and smiled, as we all did, seeing the color returning to her cheeks. Then his face grew pale and his smile faded. He looked up at the doctor and asked with a trembling voice, "Will I start to die right away?".

Being young, the little boy had misunderstood the doctor; he thought he was going to have to give his sister all of his blood in order to save her.

Ugh, so beautiful! Until later


Love this quote!

"Date a girl who reads. Date a girl who spends her money on books instead of clothes. She has problems with closet space because she has too many books. Date a girl who has a list of books she wants to read, who has had a library card since she was twelve.

Find a girl who reads. You’ll know that she does because she will always have an unread book in her bag.She’s the one lovingly looking over the shelves in the bookstore, the one who quietly cries out when she finds the book she wants. You see the weird chick sniffing the pages of an old book in a second hand book shop? That’s the reader. They can never resist smelling the pages, especially when they are yellow.

She’s the girl reading while waiting in that coffee shop down the street. If you take a peek at her mug, the non-dairy creamer is floating on top because she’s kind of engrossed already. Lost in a world of the author’s making. Sit down. She might give you a glare, as most girls who read do not like to be interrupted. Ask her if she likes the book.

Buy her another cup of coffee.

Let her know what you really think of Murakami. See if she got through the first chapter of Fellowship. Understand that if she says she understood James Joyce’s Ulysses she’s just saying that to sound intelligent. Ask her if she loves Alice or she would like to be Alice.

It’s easy to date a girl who reads. Give her books for her birthday, for Christmas and for anniversaries. Give her the gift of words, in poetry, in song. Give her Neruda, Pound, Sexton, Cummings. Let her know that you understand that words are love. Understand that she knows the difference between books and reality but by god, she’s going to try to make her life a little like her favorite book. It will never be your fault if she does.

She has to give it a shot somehow.

Lie to her. If she understands syntax, she will understand your need to lie. Behind words are other things: motivation, value, nuance, dialogue. It will not be the end of the world.

Fail her. Because a girl who reads knows that failure always leads up to the climax. Because girls who understand that all things will come to end. That you can always write a sequel. That you can begin again and again and still be the hero. That life is meant to have a villain or two.

Why be frightened of everything that you are not? Girls who read understand that people, like characters, develop. Except in the Twilightseries.

If you find a girl who reads, keep her close. When you find her up at 2 AM clutching a book to her chest and weeping, make her a cup of tea and hold her. You may lose her for a couple of hours but she will always come back to you. She’ll talk as if the characters in the book are real, because for a while, they always are.

You will propose on a hot air balloon. Or during a rock concert. Or very casually next time she’s sick. Over Skype.

You will smile so hard you will wonder why your heart hasn’t burst and bled out all over your chest yet. You will write the story of your lives, have kids with strange names and even stranger tastes. She will introduce your children to the Cat in the Hat and Aslan, maybe in the same day. You will walk the winters of your old age together and she will recite Keats under her breath while you shake the snow off your boots.

Date a girl who reads because you deserve it. You deserve a girl who can give you the most colorful life imaginable. If you can only give her monotony, and stale hours and half-baked proposals, then you’re better off alone. If you want the world and the worlds beyond it, date a girl who reads.

Or better yet, date a girl who writes."
