CyberDyze! Wutt?

Cberdyze Wutt

Haha, I was a bit surprised to get this in my inbox yesterday. Thought CyberDyze was all dead and gone already, but it seems like some places still haven't forgotten about it. :)

Winter Withering, A Return From Kangos

I'm back in business, back to Stockholm, back to the computer.

How does it feel?

I miss the snow, the fresh air, the warm sunshine glazing over fields of frozen white, the steamy sauna, the hard work plowing a passageway around Grandmas house, the refreshing walks beside the iced river, the route over a small frozen lake on the way to our isolated cottage. When I was there I was thinking about what I should do next with my sites. Now that I'm here I'm thinking about all the time I could have spent thinking about or doing better things on my short vacation. It passed quickly, and now it has passed.

Today is the first day waking up in my tiny room here in what seems like a very very long time, at Grandmas place I slept in a big double bed with a clear white ceiling above me, space on both sides, a wooden floor below me & darkness outside the open window. Here the streetlights softly illuminate my room, the walls cave in upon me, the room has fallen down towards me, the bed does not allow me to roll over without me bumping into a dark blue wall or falling onto the plastic floor beside me.

Outside, the highway can be heard a long distance away.

Occasionally a train passes by or a few late-night people walk down on the street chatting loudly with no thoughts of the people nearby, dreaming of the glorious silence that Kangos did bestow. It feel strange having been there yesterday, and being here now, in a suburb yet so close to the city, a city that thrives with people, a confined machine of concrete and slaves. They wallow like cockroaches along the streets in an endless torment of lost hope, unanswered questions and temporarily high spirits.

How anyone would want to live here is currently beyond my wildest imagination, yet it dawns on me that I have lived here, at least occasionally, for the past five years. Maybe this is the reason I've become more and more absorbed in the digital realm, the world of computers. A different dimension to which I can escape this barbaric inhumane ministry that we call civilization.

I'm leaving for the opera in less than an hour, to watch 'Figaros Wedding' at the Stockholm Opera. Buddy Bear invited me with a free spare ticket, so even though I should be plowing through studies left incomplete after my journey to a land that now seems only part of dreams, I am now reuniting with an old friend instead and spending valuable house viewing acts of drama and terror. After that the plan is to walk, talk & consume pizza. Should be fun!

An occasional tour into what most naive people call the heart of our country can be enjoying, sometimes, but after each trip over North I retain a very strong and slowly dying desire to move away from this... city.

When I was two I had lived up North for two years, and I think I enjoyed it, but now I no longer remember those times, and thus I am hesitant to move. Or maybe the hesitation is based on my current lack of good economy and a stable job that I could rely on whilst living on my own. Still, the hesitance may have another cause. Am I putting too much faith in the care of my parents? Will I become caged in this carefree world, drenched in the ambition I constantly strive to enforce? Am I hesitant to move up North simply because I am hesitant to move away from my only real source of safety on this wild and throbbing globe we live on?

Regardless of my intents or wonder, the time will come, sooner now than yesterday. The best I can do is prepare, in thought and in resource.

Me & TV

I was just about to say that I haven't watched any TV now for a full month, but then I realized I did watch a couple of programs while visiting my Grandma this past week... but that doesn't count, does it? Either way, thinking of keeping my own TV off for a full year, that should make me feel better. You know, healthier, like, more time for better things such as lifting weights and running laps around the house. Woo!

Travel Plans 2010

On Wednesday this week me and my mother are going by plane up To Kangos to visit my grandmother, staying there for a week. In June we are all going by car up to Överkalix (it's a two day drive), in July I'll be flying by plane back to Stockholm, then by plane to London with my sister/brother to celebrate a wedding, back to Stockholm three days later, up to Östersund either by car or plane, down to Överkalix again by train, and back up to Stockholm in September. Hehe, a lot of trips, but I like travel so it'll be fun, just a bit expensive. Anyhow, I'm leaving for my very short vacation the day after tomorrow, hope you have a good week!
