Since graduation approaches, I have begun the tough task of searching for jobs in Sweden – it’s usually not an easy step for foreigners.

Ice Hockey! Amazing game between LTH Griparna and Linköping!

LTH’s team did it again! An amazing game, which started pretty bad for LTH’s team. After the second break, a victory as almost impossible, as at the end of the second period, the score was 0-3. In the last period, LTH managed to come back from hell, turned the table around, equalized to 3-3 and managed to lead the game … Continue reading
