Dreaming progress

Hi again!

A new week and spent the last days a bit ill. Managed to get the thesis proposal into motion though. Some headlines with a pasted description from the how to do papers so far, but hey it´s progress.

I´ve also continued looking for accommodations. Was visiting one potential house in the outskirts of Uppsala yesterday. Rather worn down still from this cold that just won´t let me go. No cigarettes, room on the second floor, toilet far away from the landlord’s bed. Seems as a decent guy. A bit restraining towards the contract thing though. Make one wonder. It seems as a good place but it´s always exhausting trying to map what´s the deal with situations and feel so dependent on things to work all the time. I said yes anyhow and hope the door is opening when one arrive in a near future. Nice with a parental home to resettle in, but just have to push on the old fashion way.

Now the administration of the internship course went active again and I got a message reminding me that things are almost over. To my great delight I saw that I´m supposed to write an about 7 pages evaluation. Feels nice to handle alongside my proposal and internship. Yey!

Between the hours of half genuinely searching for articles I dreamt away on YouTube with some more clips. Fiction and facts alike. I like films and have until the adult child care centre followed best possible my favorite crews in USA of which I´m most fond of collaborators of James Cameron. I was reminded that it´s now 30 years since the launch of Aliens – one of my top 10. Can you believe it! 30 years and still has 8,6 at IMDB last I checked a year ago or something. I remember when I was about 15 and saw one of the Queen prototypes in real scale with my own eyes! Was reaching her knee with my head. That was a day of days I can tell you! Woooow. I remember her towering up over me in that exhibition tent outside the shopping mall. Regrettably, poor as my struggling mother was we had no money for a camera, but can still dream on the moment 15 years later:)

Here´s a link to a quick 30 year reunion interview with the core of cast and crew 30 years later reunion, including Cameron. Ah, one´s really reminded about how much I need to dream to focus onto the reality^^ Scope of Romantics I guess!

Just found some energy to read through some articles I found earlier today.

Another turn

28 of August! Almost like New Years Eve. Except for the fireworks! A new study year with lots to learn. I´m celebrating it with open windows, literally! I´m sitting in my new accommodation – it´s not big, but it´s cozy.

I´ve a beautiful view from the second floor straight down at some house gardens in the surrounding residential area. All through the filter of hanging Betula pendula branches in golden green. Real picturesque. Like a summer veil. Here I sit with open windows. There hasn´t been a single smoker so far. Hearing the birds twitter through the double windows is like something since long time lost.

Regrettably I´ve been brought down by some bad ass virus. Hasn´t slept properly for days actually. The world is rotating and feels dizzy all the time. I really hope for the lot of my life it´s a common flu. Especially since I got bitten by a tick some weeks ago.

The move has been set to a halt and has been forced to ask for help. Not something I usually do. I hope I´ll manage to see the logistics through somehow. I really hope it´s a common flu as stated before.

Once again – fantastic to sit here in my little den of 16 m2 in the middle of gardens and houses, looking at the neighbor playing around with his little excavator below! When signing the contract, seeing the “smoke forbidden in this real estate”, gave me a warm feeling in the chest. As I´ve heard, others living here have problems with cigarettes themselves.  Thinking about open windows I cross my fingers once again:)

The health status has off course meant hinders to jump into my internship tomorrow. I´m to get in touch with the farmers when things come around. I really hope once again I´ve got a simple flu and not some virus from the tick.

Well that´s about it. Anxiety blended with relief.

Bye:) ♥
