Spring-weekend

The passed weekend, and actually the passed week, the weather has been incredibly good! I got a good sunburn at Valborg (which is already blogged about by one of my fellow bloggers). But now this weekend we had a small event for ourselves here in Helsingborg. I spend the afternoon in the park, with my classmates, and with some of … Continue reading

How (not) to procrastinate

Better weather, ongoing thesis work; two perfectly good reasons to get your mind set on procrastinating. I’d say a good way of procrastinating is going out to enjoy the weather, whenever possible. In Helsingborg, it can be really nice to visit the park at Kärnan or go to the harbour or shore called Gröningen. However, don’t plan to be there … Continue reading

Half way there

I see that a lot of posts are about the master thesis now. So I’ll try to blend in a bit. I’ve been working on my thesis for almost 2 months now, and there’s about 2 months left as well. Knowing this, and knowing how much more work I’ve got left, makes me both a little anxious and excited. Most … Continue reading

Melodifestivalen

If you really want to integrate into the Swedish society, you’ll have to watch Melodifestivalen. Or in other words, the shows in which it’s determined which artist will represent Sweden during the upcoming Eurovision Song Festival. This tradition is deeply embedded (there are 4 semi-finals, 1 second chance round, and then a final round). Luckily for me, this is a … Continue reading

A last trip

Before I started my thesis project (already 2 weeks ago), I went on a trip to Kiruna. This trip I recommend to everybody! It was an amazing end of the holidays. We’ve done so many unforgettable things. Of course I should start of with our first night, when we went on a 4 hour hiking trip, waste-deep in snow, to … Continue reading

Back home

I just had three weeks of holidays back home in my beloved Netherlands. Of course it’s always great to see my friends and family, but I came to notice that there’s one thing in particular that I missed and which makes me a bad Dutchman living abroad. My beloved bicycle, which is stored safely, could finally go on the road again. … Continue reading

Nerf war

Last week a friend of mine, whom apparently got too much money to spend, invited me for a Nerf gun war. (For all of you who don’t know what it is, here comes a short explanation: A Nerf gun is a plastic gun that can shoot foam darts. 🙂 To start a Nerf war, one needs a couple of guns, … Continue reading

No more exams

I’ve got just one question for you: Who has got two thumps, and just passed his last exam ever? Just wanted to let you know, that it’s a sweet, sweet relief to not have to study for exams ever again. Now it’s only a project left before starting the thesis work. Which brings some other worrying points. Because hopefully in … Continue reading

Learning Swedish

I know, or I guess, more has been said about this earlier. But, as on many things, I’ve got my opinion ready for you. First of all, being Dutch helps me a lot in trying to learn Swedish. In my mind Swedish is nothing more than English, German and Dutch combined, scrambled and flavoured with a couple of latin-language spices. … Continue reading

‘Tis the time of Autumn

And that means the time for darkness, illness and of course exams… Unfortunately my body has decided to accumulate the feeling of darkness into illness. And that just a week before the exams. Luckily there are no lectures to be missed, only precious study time. And when it comes to studying whilst ill, I’m not an expert (yet); I’d just like … Continue reading
