Life in Sweden, Snippets of life

The Fall Diaries

It’s been a while since I posted a journal entry. The blogging space has changed so much in the last few years that personal posts can feel a bit too self-indulgent, and I have been hesitating to post something like this. To post or not to post, that’s the question.

But then I remember the reason I started this blog in the first place, back in 2011. I created this as a journal for me, and as more people have come and visited this blog through this year, I found myself write a little less for me, with a lot more consideration on what people would like to see. But there’s always a little voice in my head that says I could still post personal stuff, to some extent. And so from here onwards, I’ll try to balance diary-like entries and useful posts for dear blog readers who might not be so interested in personal stuff.

So here it is, the fall diaries.

In mid-September, an old friend came to visit me in Gothenburg. We hadn’t seen each other in at least 10 years, but we talked like no time had passed since then. One thing for sure: if you’d told these 2 high school girls 10 years ago that someday we’d work and live in Europe, we would’ve laughed and said it’s insane.

Also in September, I went to Copenhagen for work, and had so much fun there despite this weather.

Fell in love with the interior design of this restaurant in Copenhagen called Llama (the food was fantastic too!).

On the first of October, I went to Stockholm to see John Mayer concert, and it’s probably the most emotional I’ve been in months. I cried when he sang Who Says, because if there’s a song I wanted to listen to live, it’s this. Even if he’d only played this song in the concert, it would’ve still been worth it.

The concert was closed with New Light, and I left the arena with mixed-up feelings: elated, sad, satisfied. My heart swelled with so many emotions. One of the best concerts I’ve been to, without a doubt.

And finally, fall is here. To be honest, I’m not ready for 6 months of darkness and cold, but at least I can marvel at views like this for now.
