Hello again!

Whoops, I kinda fell off the Internet there for a while :P

What I’ve been up to this past month:

  • Work
    Lots and lots of work. And I love it! Even though the worst of the financial crisis seem to be over the unemployment rate is still ridiculously high, so I consider myself SO lucky for having a job to go to.
  • Moping over broken camera :(
    My lovely pink camera is broken and I’m still waiting to get it fixed. And it’s autumn! All these pretty colours are surrounding me and I have nothing to capture them with!
  • Moping over the election :evil:
    We had a parliamentary election last month and the results were… undesirable to say the least. The right wing party fuckheads gets to rule destroy the country for another 4 years and a racist party got into the parliament. Way to go Sweden…
  • Shopping
    The months after summer vacation has been pretty good. I’ll post some pics later maybe. IF I can get my hands on a functioning camera…
  • Pondering new layout
    I really REALLY want to make a pixel layout, but I’m lacking ideas. I can’t decide if I wanna go cute and colourful or dark and gothic. Or some cool retro style with lots of brown and orange and such. Any suggesitons?

And yesterday was Markus’ birthday! He’s now 23. I can’t really call him a boytoy any more :P I got him a dog tag necklace and a book about World War II (he’s a history junkie) and made him cake and cookies. Next weekend his parents will come and visit (gotta clean!) and we’ll have a small party.

Anyway, I’m (hopefully) back to blogging now! I just need to get my act together again.

    I like dark and gothic!

    Your elections did disappoint me too. :evil: Lameness like that happens here unfortunately, but I thought Sweden would be better. :(

      I know, right. I used to be proud of us for being one of those countries without parties like that in the government, and now that all went out the window :glare:

    I look forward to seeing what you come up with, layout wise. I like the dark and gothic idea, but mostly because I’ve never been able to make pixels in that style that end up looking nice. One of these days I’ll get around to it but I’m rather mediocre with pixeling. I’m excited to see what you come up with!

    Also, congrats on having lots of work to do! I know I’m starting to look for a new job and I hate waiting to here from places. It’s so depressing!

    Sorry to hear your camera is broken! Hopefully you can get it fixed or get a new camera soon. I’d go absolutely insane without my camera.

    I’m glad you’re enjoying work! :)

    Retro style sounds good! :) I used to be a fan of pixel layouts and made my own, but I think I’ve lost the patience for making something like that again. :P Now I go for much simpler layouts.

    I’m sorry about your camera! I have a few at home, but one of them is the family DSLR – if I dropped it, I’d be dead for sure. :P I’ve got my own small digital camera but sometimes I just want something different and better. I hope you get a replacement camera soon.

    When I got my first job two years ago, which I still have, I didn’t consider myself lucky. I hated the job in the beginning. Now I don’t mind at all, and the hours are fine. I think I am definitely lucky to have a job at this time, especially since I’m a student and it’s hard to find even small part-time jobs.

    Happy birthday to Markus! :D
