Ice breaking

I found some pics on my phone from when I was out running in the beginning of spring. A good reminder that the weather is not always as sunny as now.

Could it have happened that my inspiration is back?! Final exam on Wednesday and I feel pressure is finally easing.

Some pics from today taken with Retrocam, when running around Brunnsviken. 10km in 51min, personal record and Im so proud!

Im sorry...

...for not writing recently. I haven't had the inspiration for a while. I still don't, I really hope it will come back soon. I'm graduating times two next week and starting my new job the week after that. I will let you know how it goes.

And a pic taken 5min from my home. I'm still amazed by the fantastic surroundings to where we live. I've started to run 30km per week so I see a lot of them!

I only called 112 once in my life. It was when I woke up one weekend morning and I saw smoke rising through the kitchen window. When I looked out I saw that the back of the local pizzeria was on fire and the fire had also spread to a car that was parked outside. I immediately woke Cem up and after that I called the fire department. But the operator that I was connected to seemed really annoyed about my call - obviously I was not the first to call in. I thought they'd encourage people to report accidents, at least with a thank you?

At least the fire got turned out, no one got hurt and me and Cem got some morning drama.

Emre in Sthlm

Spent a couple of sunny days in Stockholm with Emre who came to visit during his Europe trip. I'm really happy that I got the opportunity to show the best of Stockholm and that Emre loved the city!

Emre: "-The biggest new in the swedish newspapers today; Someone stole a bike!"

One of the highlights of KTH takes place every third year in may and is a big carneval called Quarnevalen. The first carnival took place already in 1910 and has been a recurrent event since (with some intermissions). 

Quarnivalen starts half a year before the carnival with that all the students who wants, also from other universities, come up with a idea about with what to participate with, sell Quarnival magazines to raise money to the project and then the organizing student group fixes all the building material. Then in may, the team has one week to build their contribution to the carnival. That week is full of parties every day and the construction site is constantly a big feast.

The carnival contribution can be about anything you want. Most contributions are really funny, but many of them are also a demonstration against something.

In 2008 I was myself a participant of Quarnivalen, in 2011 we saw the carnival from the front row in Mirjams apartment.
