Life is as good as life should be. One of my best friends received a four thousand dollar scolarship this morning, to fund the making of a really simple program that could potentially alter the way we look at learning. Another friend opened up a t-shirt company called Florange! I got support and encouragement for different “business” ideas from both friends and Swedish entrepeneurs Isabella “Blondinbella” Löwengrip and Pingis Hadenius. I have two ideas for web-TV or regular ol’ TV that I’ve started e-mailing some partners about. Things are exciting and heading the right way.
The biggest lesson this week has been “You can’t wait to feel like it, because you might be waiting forever”. And if you wait long enough, you’ll be unprepared when that golden holy scheisse moment comes and you can’t do anything with it. Work hard on your goals and surround yourself with people who really support you. I can’t believe how many amazing go-getter friends I’ve had all along! And so many things are brewing in this city… Stockholm is really turning out to be the new capital of the world…
We had our final dinner for the intro weeks of Stockholm School of Business, as I told you before… I was in a secret group of 22 new students doing cool things, so here are pics from that! Now… back to studying microeconomics and accounting.

Lipstick from Kanebo! Anthurium is the favourite <3
Pic from big in Japan
Yey! I got three free lipsticks from Kanebo! Which is awesome because they cost $30 a stick. I’m not that much of a make-up user because I think lenses, lashes, moisturizer and a big smile does the trick for my face… I’m actually pretty bad at putting on make-up, but I don’t realize that until I see the party pics the day after… “I don’t always use lipstick, but when I do it goes something like this“:
The first issue of our epic newspaper is out! Stockholm Banco – the student magazine for us economy students. I’ve done shots with Leo Razzak and Patricia Kempff for Swedbank. Excitement!

The party boat leaves at seven in the morning and it’s eleven now and I’ve done 2/6 of the questions for the microeconomy class.

When I don’t understand things I start googling them and when I can’t find what I’m looking for (90% of the time) I end up on tumblr.
When it’s close to midnight on a Saturday and I have four more problems to solve
When I see that the next question is split up into three parts
When I don’t even know where to begin
My finance skills at around midnight (I seriously almost wrote something along these lines)
