I know nothing about proper blog keeping so, um. Hi.
I am Sandra, I live in Sweden but I desperately wish I didn't. Plan is to migrate to Japan.
This blog might really just be another attempt to motivate myself. ヨロシク。
A while ago I read that some people like to follow certain little schedules while studying, and somewhere I came across one that a lot of people agreed worked well for them. First you study, without any distractions, for 25 minutes, then take a five minute break, another 25 minutes of studying, five minute break, 25 minutes studying, then a 20 minute break. Repeat.
I’ve been trying this for about two weeks now and it works SUPER well for me? I’m really surprised but I’m getting a lot done so I’m grateful :B
The picture I posted isn’t recent by the way, it’s gonna be a while before my street looks like that again (not a long while though…). I got my second roll of film used with my Konica C35 developed a while ago and this was on it! Sigh I love that camera ♡
Happiest news though… I bought my ticket to Osaka (●♡∀♡) I’m leaving on December 28th and I get back home on January 5th, so almost a whole week in winter Japan ♡ The goal is of course to go to both of KAT-TUN’s lives in Kyocera Dome (and I don’t see what’s gonna stop me :B). I realise that I’m basically paying a lot of money to cry my heart out when my favourite group steps on stage as four instead of five, but hey. Watchudo watchudo. It’s already been over a year since I was last in Japan too so that’s gonna be nice ♡ (eat aaaaall the onigiri)
I just finished watching the last episode of The Office (us version) and I was kept weepy for 50 minutes. Never mind that never expected to shed a tear over Michael Scott gdi.
Last week my friend from The Netherlands was here and we went to see Loreen at Gröna Lund (amusement park in Stockholm). They have replaced my favourite ride with The Swings From Hell and I am so unimpressed.
Loreen was awesome though.
About half a year ago I ordered a digital toy camera (the fuuvi nanoblock camera) from an online shop called fourcornerstore. I bought an analog toy camera from them last year and it reached me in just a few weeks so I had no reason not to buy from them again. There won’t be a third time though.
Like I said, I ordered it half a year ago and I got it yesterday. I’ve been mailing them all this time, getting replies with a lot of excuses and, apparently, empty promises. On August 2nd (this was like the 4th or 5th email they sent me) they wrote "I will make sure this goes out today, and I will personally send you the tracking info." On August 12 I still had no tracking information, so I emailed them to ask about it. Still no reply on September 1st, so I wrote a slightly irritated email this time, then again on the 3rd. The next day I finally got this:
"This is Nic, the owner of the store. I wanted to personally apologize for the delay in this matter, there was a backorder from the vendor. The replacement item has been shipped with the tracking (…).”
Well, if that is true then couldn’t your customer service have told me that instead of promising me a new camera and then ignoring my emails? For half a year??
The camera reached me yesterday though so it was a quick delivery. Never mind that I paid for it back in March.
IT IS A VERY FUN CAMERA THOUGH IT IS NOT FUUVI’S FAULT THAT FOURCORNERSTORE AREN’T COOL.
Tomorrow is the last day of my normal work schedule, so from next week on I’ll be working 1-2 days/week (I think I’ve mentioned this more than once already but it’s just such a happy thing, ok).
Sure I am a little bit scared, I haven’t worked that little in a couple of years and it means much less money and all but it’s still good. It’s a decision I made myself so I can focus on and finally finish school and then get the beep out of here.
Speaking of, just 204 days left until I go to South Korea! I barely think about it at all right now, probably because it’s still pretty far away?
Awwwww yessss, got me one of those ↑ Ordered some really cute cases on ebay and now I just have to wait patiently for them to arrive… Which reminds me that I ordered Jin’s and Yamapi’s new singles plus EXO’s new album from YesAsia a while back but now customs is holding them and I’m going to have to pay to get them. Grrrrr.
I just felt like updating. One day I’ll have something interesting to say! Hopefully :B ♡
I just reeEeEEeaAAAally don’t want to study right now but I have to I absolutely have to.
I’m just taking a liiiiiittle break.
A little one.
After the first week in September we’re getting new schedules at work and I’ve asked my boss if she can give me just one to two days a week from then on, and it turns out she could! Sounds nice, I’ll be able to make time for happy things but ahahah. No.
Study study study.
School in Korea has been paid and I’ve also bought my (unnecessarily expensive) ticket (finnair), so I leave Sweden on March 29th! Counting down the days…
