Tattoos

Standard

I know for sure that I am someday going to get one or two tattoos. I think they are beautiful and that it’s a fabulous art form. Some of the things people get tattooed are downright amazing. The tattoos I want to get (so far) aren’t that amazing or special. They are small, in black and in places where not everyone will be able to see them (that sounds a lot more kinky than it is). I’m not sure about all of them, but still. Here are a few pictures of tattoos I will get or might get or just think look really cool.

So these first three are tattoos I actually really want. The locations and designs aren’t what I want. But damn do I like the ideas. It’s like they invaded my brain.
1, 2, I love space and I love (in a twisted I-don’t-want-to-learn-it-I-just-think-it-is-cool way) science. Both are such explored but yet so unexplored areas full of mysteries and I don’t think we’ll ever understand the whole of it. The space is infinate and it is eternal, two concepts we don’t actually understand and probably never will. Which is something that I actually like. I also love the stars and that wherever I’ve been, I’ve looked up at the sky and seen the septentrion. It has been a comforter when I’ve been homesick in England or when I’ve missed someone that is in a different country, we all look at the same sky (such a cheesy cliché thing to say). I understand that I may come of as a cheesy nerd that just want meanings for her tattoos when I say this, but I do find it all very fascinating and these symbols do mean something to me. For example, the infinity/eternity symbol is the symbol I’m having on my engagement ring (just a note to my future husband).
3, The last picture would be a reminder of the greatness that was my one year in England. It ended up being so much more than I expected it to be and this song will always remind me of that year, all the people I met and the brilliant man that is Justin Vernon. However, if people would ask about the tattoo I’d tell them the short story, I love Bon Iver.

These three are a lot more cliché and used by stupid hipsters who get tattoos for the sake of having tattoos and taking pictures of them. But I love the colours in the third one and I’ve always been a sucker for dream catchers (don’t like the “truth” part though). The second one I just love the way the tattoo looks. I don’t know what I would get in white ink, but I’m sure that I do want something.

Stockholm, Sweden

Standard

I am from the capital of Sweden, also known as Stockholm. I have lived here for 17 years of my life and I love this city. I love how it looks during the winter with christmas lights and snow all over, I love how it looks during the spring when it’s just so warm that you can walk around with your jacket open, I love it during the autumn when the leaves turn red and it looks like the world is on fire, but I especially love it during the summer when the sun is out, when all the boats are out on the lake/sea and when you see everyone sitting outside in the sun enjoying life. I just wanted to show you this great picture my friend Carl took today, it does make Stockholm look like a pretty fantastic place.

Looking for Alaska by John Green

Standard

Today I finished reading the book ‘Looking for Alaska’ by John Green, it is a very good book with so many fantastic quotes in it. It describes love, lost, laughter and a lot of both great and bad things about being a teenager in a beautiful way. I love reading and I am really looking forward to reading the rest of his books because apparently they are all really good and have a lot of good quotes in them. I would really like to recommend John Greens book for you and also these three; ‘Extremely Loud and Incredibly close’ by Jonathan Safran Foer, ‘The Perks of Being a Wallflower’ by Stephen Chbosky and also a book called ‘Anybody Out There’ by Marian Keyes. I just love reading a really good book. Also, here are some good quotes from the John Green book:

favourite place on earth

Standard

The chalk pits is one of my favourite places on earth, it doesn’t matter if it is daytime or night time because the view is always so beautiful and that place is full of so many great memories. We’ve spent so many great nights and days up there and when I was up there with Calvin to send up Chinese lanterns today (it failed epically) I didn’t really want to leave. It feels so much like home and I will always be happy up there.
