For the next 10 days I will be away from home and you could say I’m traveling for the next 9 days. So stating tomorrow I will stay at my cousins place which is pretty close to where I work so thats nice.
Then on Friday I will be going to the cottage but I’ll get back to that tomorrow and next week I will be in Stockholm and Oslo. So I thought I would fire up the blog again to see what’s happening.
This weekend I’ve been hanging out with my girlfriend G on a spa on the Swedish west coast which is a Christmas gift from my mom to us. So we have been in the spa and in the restaurant mostly and had a great weekend but I haven’t hade the camera or my iPhone with me for pretty much all of the weekend witch might be the most relaxing thing about this weekend but we took a walk along the water this morning and then I hade my Leica T I just couldn’t skip to upload a few of these photos here on the blog.
Today I thought I would have a meeting at the Swedish Lifesaving Association Gothenburg but I had written the wrong day in my calendar but I when I showed up some lifeguarding buddies where there doing the CPR-Challange so they challenged me, which they came to regret.
The CPR-challange is that you once a month are doing the CRP for 2 minutes in on a connected training device that measures the quality of you CPR. The goal is to reach 100 % if not already from the start so by the end of May. But its also about being better that the other once participating. When I did it 12 people had participated this month and my result for January was 86,15% which from now on is highscore and the result to beat.
So a lot of training from now on until next month, the goal is to beat my result from this month. So why do I do this. Simple if/when I will come into a situation where I need to perform CPR on a friend, relative, family member, co-worker (its most probability its some you know) or someone else I want to give the as high quality CPR as possible.
Last weekend I started trading with stocks. I’ve been thinking about it for a long time and now I thought was the time to get started. This week has initially started out negative but I’m in it for the long term and think it will turn around, it usually do. I’ve been introduce to a service called Sigmastocks that I’m tring out, so far its pretty new to me so I will come back on how it works out for me. Super excieted for this and monitoring my stocks almost every day right now. Right now I’m however only trading on the Swedish market. Do you trade with stocks? Any advice for this, please share it.
So half way though this week as well and it just passes me by som fast right now. But i can’t forget last weekend in Oslo. I had a extra day of because it was a public holiday in Sweden. So I took of to Oslo. Anyway during friday I started with stocks and we got guest and then we hit Oslo where we saw a concert with my favorit partyband Awesomesauce that have a playlist filled with guilty pleasure music from the 90s’ and until today. Music that I’ve listend to when I grew up and still listens to. Then me and my girlfriend G knows half the band but still they are real great. I’m sure they will show up later in the blog again during this year. After that there was a DJ with similar music and we dance until the morning came. Can’t remember when I danced all night last time. But it was so fun.
Saturday G and our guest just hung out in Oslo and where home and played games and sunday me and the guest drove back to Gothenburg, Sweden again. Awesome weekend.
Now 3 days of the new year has passed and 1 dat of this year went as usually to sleep after a long night and to take farewell to my girlfriend G that went back to Oslo again. But I will see her again this weekend.
Yesterday where the first day back at work, I bought a new membership to a gym which felt like a bit cliche to do the first thing on the new year. However, I wrote this years first blog post 2016 Review and I started to think about what I wanted to do this year.
Today I have been working and meet upp with an old lifeguard buddy (Little B) that’s in town for a few more days before he moves to Skåne (Southern parts of Sweden) in order to study. Walked almost 20000 steps today which feels like a good thing.
Full of thoughts for the new year and this week will have a lot of things in store I’m sure about that!
First of all I just want to say happy new year everyone and thanks for reading the blog during 2016. It’s amazing to be able to run this blog.
2016 have been an intense year but I first realized when looking back at it on new years eve. So I though I would summarize it a little bit. And I have an idea of split a deeper review up during the next month.
So 2016 started I started out on my trip to Bali. Which was my first time I spent new year outside of Sweden. Bali was amazing and among the best trips of my life and right now I can see a lot of people posting from Bali on social media and I just want to go back soon again.
However the trip ended and I returned back to work and my home in Oslo. Back home in Oslo i cross country skied as much as I could and when X-games visited Oslo me and friend went and saw the big air competition which where amazing.
During the spring I celebrated my 29th birthday and I did so in Florence, Italy which where great. Don’t think I ever been to a city where I’ve eaten som much great food and been drinking so much great wine and with great I really med GREAT!
Just two weeks after my return to Oslo I went back to Italy. This time I stopped in Milan on the way to Cinque Terra where I hiked for 5 days with beautiful views.
The summer I spent in Sweden as usually together with my family and during the summer my grandpa on mother side past away. But I also had a real nice summer. Most of it by my girlfriend G’s family’s cottage in Dalsland but also on the Swedish West coast that pretty much is Swedish summer to me. I also climbed hiked up the Norwegian mountain Gaustatoppen and meet my mom’s cousins and their children which where about the same age as me.
The autumn has I not written som much about on the blog but where among the biggest changes this year. I got a new job in Sweden that meant that I moved form Norway back home to Sweden again. However, I still travel a lot to Oslo and Norway because my girlfriend G still lives in Oslo. Much of the end of the year have been going to establishing my self back in Sweden. Taking up contact with friends in the area. Started to train lifeguarding again.
It’s been an intense year and I already now know that 2017 might be a even bigger year for me. I will let you know soon what this hint is about.
Merry Christmas everyone, yeah I know its December 26th today but anyway. I just wanted to wish you all a merry Christmas. I’ve been spending the last couple of days with friends and family and I’ve been taking a lot of photos and also tried some video so I’m super excited to see how all of this turns out. If it turns out okay I will share it here on the blog is the plan.
Right now I’m in Dalsland with my girlfriend G’s family and in their cottages up here. I looks like we have a storm coming in during the afternoon and the night so we will see how that turns out.
I’m on the bus heading towards Oslo and Norway for the weekend. But this time is a bit different. A few weeks ago I saw the final concert with the Swedish band Kent but this weekend it’s a new concert and a new artist. This time it’s to see the biggest artist in Sweden, Håkan Hellström. So me and G will go with a few Swedish friends that lives in Oslo and some Norwegian that will experience him for the first time. I’m super excited.
Been thinking a lot about I best could share his music with you because all of it is in Swedish.
So woke up early this morning way earlier than necessary but it was real good because for once I could go back to sleep. When I finally went up I had a great hotel breakfast and after that I checked out as a took a cab with my new colleague J to the construction work environment course where I then spent the day. A lot of thought not only for work but also for me outside of work. Think it was a real good course and I really like that the company invest the time and money in their personnel. A good way of showing the way for the rest of the industry.
After the course me J and two other shared a cab to the airport and flew home to Gothenburg. It’s truly amazing how many nice, driven and friendly people I’ve meet the last two days and that are my co-workers. Impressed a hell to be honest and feels good to be working where I am.
