one year to go

Today I was reading some articles in some kind of Maersk magazine that I could find on the intranet. There was an article there about CSR, Corporate Social Responsibility, in the A.P. Moller - Maersk Group. I think that is very interesting. Something I might want to work with in the future. So that is one way I could go. Not sure I like the finance track, not in the long run. Although I do like numbers.

But I still have one year before I need to know in what direction I want to go. At least that is the limit I have set. After 1 ½ year at this job I can start thinking of where to go next. If I even want to stay in this town. That feeling goes up and down all the time. Perhaps a little bit more down when I have too much time to think. And no people around.

I still have time to figure it all out. But that is also what I said when I started university. "I have four years to figure out what I want to do." Did I know after four years?

off to where?

I want to travel. Anyone want to go somewhere? Anyone wants a visitor? We have three extra days off during Easter so it would be a good opportunity to actually go somewhere. But have no idea really. Whose place can I crash?

I guess the problem is also that many are going home during Easter or already have plans to go somewhere else.

What to do, what to do.

ammonia is in the air

Interesting day. A good day. At least for me. Not for the seven people that apparently had to be hospitalized for observation. Three was an alarm at work today. Not a fire alarm but an alarm saying something like that there was a threat. I was in the bathroom so I did not hear. But we all had to leave the building. On the way out we felt a stench of ammonia in the halls and it was stinging in the eyes and really difficult to breath.

It was just before lunch so after a while we decided to go somewhere for lunch. So did many others and many other Maersk employees were at the same café as us. Then we heard another guy saying that the police at the office did not really know when the office would be opened again. And that many people had left to go home. So we decided to go home. I was at home at 3 pm which felt really nice.

Then in the evening a friend came over and cooked dinner for me. A truly perfect day. Half day at work and good food.

Later I heard that people had been let back in at around 6 pm and my collegues had went back in as well. But not T and me since we headed away from the office instead of towards it after leaving the café. Good choice.

Had a schlager evening yesterday which was really nice. J and me of course had to have this evening being the only two Swedes. Then the rest had to sit with us watching it. But it seems like they liked it and they were even involved making an effort. We attracted them with some very good punch as well.

Although. I am not sure about the winner. I was hoping more for Snälla, snälla. Only two points behind. That just sucks. That song together with Alcazar's Stay the night was my two favorites. If Mums Måns had won that would have been fine too. But this opera song? Not so sure. Well, we just have to wait and see in the Eurovision Song Contest.

After that we started with karaoke! We never made it downtown but just stayed in my apartment having fun.

one of those nights

I thought I just wanted a chill night at home.
Then I felt lonely.
So I let Lenny keep me company. And started tidying up to keep myself busy and keep the thoughts away.


I noticed it has been a while. I guess I just forgot about it.

But systeryster was here in the weekend. Was nice to see her and just chilling with her. Came on Thursday and went home on Monday so a long weekend. We had some good food. Did some second hand shopping. I have been missing someone to do that with. And as always, we found many nice things. I found a really nice flowery jacket but I need to do some changes and I will probably hand it in to a seamstress.

Oh, and my sister brought all these videos of when we were young! It was hilarious. Oh my, we were laughing. So much fun. We were singing and dancing out the christmas trees until we were lying on the floor tired. Good times good times.

Now it is time for another weekend.

not this morning

I made it to work today. Had to since I was quite restless yesterday. Of course, as soon as the alarm rang I almost wished I was just a tad more sick and could stay in bed. It is great feeling turning off the alarm and just falling asleep again. But no. Not this morning.

I made it through the day. With some Swiss chocolate that made it somewhat better. Then it was time to go home and meet up my sister who is here for the weekend.

lazy and restless

I have always seen myself as a kind of a lazy person. As a student I could easily spend hours and days by myself in my apartment just doing nothing. Chilling, watching TV, reading or whatever I could be doing.

Today I stayed home from work since I did not feel that well this morning. Fortunately I am feeling better. Of course I had a little bit of that feeling when I decided to stay at home, that "yes, a day off from work". It is funny though, because now I am feeling so restless. I even went for a walk along the beach of Amager with a friend. So I have actually been out for some fresh air. Still, feeling all restless.

Need to get to work tomorrow. I cannot stand another day of restlessness. I think I still consider myself as lazy, but I am for sure not at the same level as when I was a student. It is weird.

involuntary leave?

I do not want to get sick... Sister is coming this weekend. And we are supposed to have fun. And I hate being sick.

I am NOT sick.
I am NOT sick.
I am NOT sick.

There you go. I am not sick.

Starting to get some motivation back for work. It was nice to get some structure. I just need to remember that I am actually good at things. And stop being insecure.

girls versus guys

I miss girl friends.
I miss my girls.
I miss girl talks.
There is too many guys around.
You need a bit of both.
You need half and half.


I wonder. I say I like change. I am moving around. Living in other countries. Trying new things. But when it comes down to it, is it really that easy to change? You make changes, but perhaps they are just changes similar to what you have gone through before. Do I really try new things?

Can you change something that you have grown so accustomed to. I tried, but failed. Or maybe I did not, because at least I tried. And I hope it failed because it just was not right and not because of me afraid of change. But how can I know since it is something unfamiliar?

I just have to trust my gut.

colorful disco

Saturday was the time of the fastelavns party. It was really fun to get dressed out. I am not really sure what my theme was, basically colorful. Perhaps a little bit disco. The interesting thing though, is that I did not really buy that much new stuff. I bought a few accessories and the turquoise pants but I can actually see myself wearing them in spring or summer. I wear or can wear all that I had on me, I guess I usually just do not go for that combination.

It was fun. Not so much people but it was fun. Otherwise this weekend was quite quiet. It passed so fast considering I did as little as possible. Oh, we did go for another hamburger today, this time for the legendary burgers at Hard Rock Cafe. It was good. Greasy but good. The meat was really good, better than the last burger at Halifax. Although the combination and fries is much better at Halifax. So the Halifax burger is still in the lead.


It won't work... Right?...
