( There I was, atop of a mountain . . . you can see our summerplace by the lake, to the left, it appears as one of many other dots that in distance resemble houses - but you'll find a picture of higher resolution to study more thoroughly in the galleries later on . . . )
It all ended so abruptly. The leaves started turning orange, the water turned to ice, and the midnight sun stopped to rise. We flew to Stockholm for an hour by plane, and here it's suddenly summer again! Vacation was great. ^_^ Over two months without connections to the digital world and completely isolated from all international events. Hehe. Any new wars raging in the world? Any important people killed yet? I need to catch up . . . Watched the 12 newest episodes of Naruto, Bleach and One Piece today. We upgraded from our old 05,MB connection to 8MB as soon as we arrived back here, and everythings going sixteen times as fast as normal! WOOOO!!! It can't get better.
During my vacation I not only managed to paint four buildings, build a bench, a jetty, a wall for my throwing knifes, fill a few buckets with cloudberries and do various other placecarettaking things - I also filled a few hundred pages with poetic scribbles, and will be hoping to get a poetry collection published sometime this year, if time ( studies ) so allow. My studies in Japanese and Japanese History before 1686 ( samurai, ninjas, all that ) at Stockholm university start on Tuesday. Pictures from my vacation will be up in the gallery as soon as I have time ( maybe never? lmao ). I even had time for some real vacation too, hehe, swimming everyday, paddling a little, playing badminton, soccer, roasting perch by the fireplace. My buddy Björn from Stockholm came to visit for a week. We had a great time, but it's apparent he's a real city boy. :P Some typical traits being - never walking without shoes, wearing suitable clothes at all occasions and asking for radar ( bug poison ) at first sight of flies. Heh. Would have been interesting having him visit before the Mosquitoes disappeared ( most of them die before August ). He's a fishing maniac though, so we we went fishing 6/7 days. Next summer it will be my turn to visit his place, hopefully. My brother David and his kid Rasmus came to stay for a week too, and my sister for a little longer. Unfortunately their both too busy to take out a full length summer vacation.
Anyhow, I noticed there was a problem with the contact page when I checked my email and found a pile of empty emails from cyberDB - it's fixed now. I'll start building on the site as soon as I have time. I have 37,5 points to study at the university ( 30 is "full time" ). I have to start working on my drivers license, I have to transfer my "book" from regular paper into Word and I was thinking about getting a part time job to get some extra money, but I think that's out of the question now, haha. I've updated my twitter, newgrounds and zellomesh pages - take a look. Will try to regain my activity there too! Soon. Btw, for anyone who needs a new avatar, here's my new one. Feel free to use it. The photo is by Maud Axell ( my sister ). Au revoire!
