April 24th 2007

The day of the job interview. I was quite nervous and possibly a bit scared. But it was a really nice experience though and they were so nice there. They asked lots of questions and I answered the best I could and they seemed really optimistic about it all, so all I can do now is hope. I won't know anything until Friday, possibly after the weekend. Long time to wait, but all I have to do is continue as if nothing is going to happen. I don't want to expect too much, although it's kinda hard not to do so with such a nice interview. They even thanked me and said it had been such a nice interview. That made me really happy. I relaxed quite soon after sitting down and was totally comfortable with the whole situation. I guess it just felt right to be there. So now I just have to hope that I'm right for them. Hope with me rockers! Rock on, D.

April 19th 2007

Last night I received a call from a school in Kastrup, just on the other side of Øresund. They wanted to thank me for my application and wanted to invite me to an interview on the 24th of April. My heart could have burst through my chest. I was so excited and extremely happy to hear from them. The school seems awesome and I got a really great gut feeling about the whole thing. So am really excited, but also a bit anxious about the interview. I know that all I have to do is be myself and that they called me in because they get the feeling that I'm right for their school. So I just have to make sure to relax about it and not feel so nervous. I guess the nerves are pretty natural since a lot is on stake here really. This job would mean a lot to me, not only because I am bored of being unemployed, but also because it would mean a lot of great changes for Johan and me. We really desperately want to move out of this shoebox we live in and get a real home where both our things as well as ourselves would actually fit in. I would finally be able to get my little car and we'd be able to just do so much more than we can now. I can start paying back my student loans and we'd be able to go visit Katrine in Wales. Plus there's the whole deal of me moving to Sweden and not losing my rights to free medical care in Denmark, which would sort itself out as I would have full rights to it what with working in Denmark and paying taxes there. So please keep your fingers crossed for me. It means the world to me :)
Just finished getting my sister's birthday present ready to send off to Wales. It's weird to have to do that. Last year at this time she and me were living together in a flat in Århus and now she lives in Wales and I'm in Sweden. It's crazy how much things can change in just one year, but it's amazing how much better a life can become. I love my family and my friends in Århus, but this is where I belong. I have days where I don't really know if I even like it here in Lund, but then I get a little glimpse of the future: Johan and me in a bigger flat, an awesome job and possibly a baby on the way. That's my perfection, nothing can change that. That's my mission, so to speak. Some people want huge careers, lots of money, expensive cars, to travel the world etc. I want my own family. I found my place and purpose and I love it.
Rock and rockers!

April 16th 2007

Just around 20° in Lund today and that inspired Johan and me to have our first barbecue of the year. We had some steak my mum gave us and then we did a nice salad, some olives wrapped in bacon and flushed it all down with cold Swedish apple cider. Was fantastic to say the least! According to the weather people the brilliant weather won't last long and already tomorrow we should go down to around 15°, but that's okay. Today was lovely as it was and we'll have plenty more days like this during the summer.
Yesterday we got back from a few days in Århus. I had a test in the hospital on Wednesday which hopefully went well. Can't really say until I've gotten my results on the 2nd of May. It gives me more than two weeks without doctors which feels so nice. Maybe it can actually take my mind of the whole thing for a while and just enjoy that Spring truly is here and that we can be outside and enjoy the sunshine.
I've sent out some job applications and am hoping for an interview soon. There's been a good bunch of available positions these weeks, so with a little luck and hope there might just be one for me in store. Fingers crossed! I'm optimistic anyway, no need to get all down about it. It'll all sort itself out eventually.
Well, it's sunny and pretty here in Lund and I am going to sit and smile about that for a while. Take care of yourselves and rock on rockers.

April 9th + 10th 2007

It's 1 am, so basically it's the 10th of April, but I really want to write a bit about the 9th. Today was the day we finally went to the My Chemical Romance gig in Malmö. And was it awesome? It fucking rocked! Was such a great show and really lived up to all my expectations. Gerard sings like heaven and the audience really build up such a great atmosphere. Johan and me had a bit of a laugh at the massive crowd of emo-kids who dared their way into daylight to see the show. Just as I foresaw I suddenly found myself looking at the crowd and my maternal instincts started going bananas. I actually felt like petting a few of them and telling them to stop ruining their precious hair with black colouring. Especially the boys, you never know when they might loose half their hair and all they'll have to reminisce about will be dry, ruined, too black hair much resembling a helmet.

What does this have to do with My Chemical Romance, you're thinking. Good question. Not much I guess. I sidetracked. But yes, the show was awesome and I am so glad that I got to see them. Thanks again to Katrine, my gorgeous sister. She was the one who made it all possible for us.

Tomorrow, or later today as it will be, we're off to Århus for a few days. I'm due back in hospital on Wednesday for more examinations. These won't be too bad and Johan will be there with me, so I feel quite alright about it. Just hope these tests will have results so the reason for my stomachaches can finally be established and cured. Think of me as I will think of you.

Rock on rockers!
