Moving again!

Yesterday I moved north! I moved in with Toni :D These past few weeks I've spent putting most of my flat into boxes and making sure my little sister can rent my flat second hand from me. So as to keep my flat as a back-up in case things don't work out. Friday we packed all the boxes into a trailer attached to Dad's car, and then we (Toni and I) spent the night at my parents' house. We all got up at 6 am yesterday to travel north. It's really far and the trip took about 6 hours by car with trailer xD We arrived around 1.30 pm and started unloading the trailer. Toni and I slept in the car pretty much the whole trip xD

The first thing I did when we arrived (after getting all the boxes inside) was to start reassembling my bookcase. It was too big and too heavy to get out of my flat in its assembled state so I had to take it apart. Lucky for me that I use Ikea furniture xD While building my bookcase with the help of my parents Toni's mum, older sister and three nieces arrive to say hello. Soon after they left my parents leave too to return home south. After they've gone I pretty much pass out on the bed and sleep for a couple of hours, before waking up and start unpacking again.

Today we've been to dinner at Toni's parents. It was also a sort of goodbye dinner to his younger sister who's going to Australia for three months. His older sister and her husband were there too, along with the three little girls. We had a lot of fun playing with them. Especially the littlest one seem to like me :D It gets pretty wild playing with three girls aged 10, 7 and 4 xD But I had lots of fun.

We stopped by the supermarket on our way home to buy some celebratory snacks and soda :) I now live with my boyfriend! :D

Dad's 50th

So we just got back to my flat from celebrating my dad's 50th birthday. Actually, his birthday is in June, but he's always so very busy during the summer months that he always celebrates it in autumn xD So since it was his 50th he and Mum decided to have a big party. It didn't turn out to be that big. The family is pretty small since both Mum and Dad don't have any siblings. So all in all I think we were about 30 people.

The party started in 6pm and we got there a bit earlier. The first few hours were mostly about food. All the food was amazingly delicious. For entrée there was some kind of shrimp dish that was really really good. Main course was meat and potato gratin. I could kill for that potato gratin, it was soo good! :3 The dessert was raspberry sorbet. Omnomnom! :3

Then there was dancing. Neither Toni nor I dance, but I was dragged onto the dance floor by my dad, and I did one dance with him. My little sister was dragged there too. While the adults were dancing (we're not adults! ;)) we spent most of the time hanging out, getting drinks from the open bar and eating snacks :P

Around 1 am people started leaving and Mum and Dad ordered two taxis. They had booked three hotel rooms for the night along with breakfast. The hotel was more of an inn in the middle of nowhere, but it was really fresh and really nice :) Toni and I got one room, my sister and her boyfriend had one, and my parents one. We fell asleep pretty much immediately.

Today we woke up to a pretty chilly view. We stuffed ourselves at breakfast. I'm not usually very hungry in the morning and I'm not a very big fan of food when I've just woken up, but luckily enough I was today :P After breakfast Dad drove us back to my hometown and from there we got on the train back to Malmö.

Teen years versus twenties.

Teen years:
Sometimes this house feels like a prison that I just can't leave behind. There's so many rules I gotta follow cause you can't let go. I don't wanna hear it and I just can't believe it, all the stupid things you say. But one day I won't take this anymore. One day I'll be old enough to do what I want to. And I won't have to run away and you won't be there to say I'm not allowed to. One day. Sometimes I wonder if you know me or if you just pretend to care. So tell me are you on a mission to bring me down? I don't wanna hear it and I just can't believe it, all the stupid things you say. But one day I won't take this anymore. One day I'll be old enough to do what I want to. And I won't have to run away and you won't be there to say I'm not allowed to. One day. Go away. Don't look at me. Cause we're not the same and you can't do nothing. You can say that it's not OK. But I'm not OK and you can't do nothing. One day I won't take this anymore. I'll be old enough to do what I want to. And I won't have to run away and you won't be there to say I'm not allowed to. One day.


Twenties:
Singing Radiohead at the top of our lungs with the boombox blaring as we're falling in love. Got a bottle of whatever but let's get in this truck singing here's to never growing up. Call up all our friends. Go hard this weekend for no damn reason. I don't think we'll ever change. Meet you at the spot half past ten o'clock. We don't ever stop and we're never gonna change. Say - won't you say forever. Stay - if you stay forever. Hey - we can stay forever young. Singing Radiohead at the top of our lungs with the boombox blaring as we're falling in love. Got a bottle of whatever but let's get in this truck singing here's to never growing up. We'll be running down the street yelling kiss my ass. I'm like yeah whatever we're still living like that. When the sun's going down we'll be raising our cups singing here's to never growing up. We live like rockstars, dance on every bar, this is who we are. I don't think we'll ever change. They say just grow up. But they don't know us. We don't give a fuck and we're never gonna change. Say - won't you say forever. Stay - if you stay forever. Hey - we can stay forever young.

Simply, when you're a teen all you want is to grow up and move out and not having your parents telling you what to do (they still try). When you're in your twenties all you care about is not growing up. Funny how that works.
