Over a month has passed and except for a little post the other day about the film I made during the spring term, it’s been quiet. I spent April in both Stockholm, Egham/London and in Berlin (with photos still on the disposable camera, waiting to be developed), the latter one to spend time with Maria and Gustaf. I’ve written several essays, done a presentation and started working on my dissertation.Second of May was Harry Potter day and I spent the day reading Deathly Hallows and the evening watching Deathly Hallows part 1 and 2, and the Philosopher’s Stone with a friend.
I’ve been meaning to write this entire time. Writing here, writing a script I’ve been planning for quite a while, just writing. It hasn’t really gone that well, and won’t for a good while now. I have class on Tuesday and Wednesday, but on Thursday I’m going to Barcelona with friends from my course, and when I get back a week later, I have a few things left to do for my Economic History course as well as my own + friends’ birthday celebrations.
I’m leaving England in exactly 4 weeks, taking an evening flight back to Stockholm. I haven’t booked my flight back yet, as I don’t know how long I’ll stay there, it all depends on my internship. But I’ll be there until the end of July at least. I haven’t planned to work as I’m only there for a month and a half or two months. Instead, all I want to do is to sit in parks with my friends, cold beer, pizza, eat Swedish food, going out in the archipelago with the ferries, walking around Södermalm, take the ferry over to Djurgården and have a picnic, and go to the cinema on rainy days. I’m supposed to work on my dissertation during the summer, but as third year (!!!) doesn’t start until late September, I’m giving myself a full vacation for the time I’m in Stockholm. Every time I’ve been back there since starting uni, there has always been some work to do, or something else keeping my mind busy – this time, I want to treat it as if I’m on a holiday. (which my bank account won’t like)
