On 20-Minute Blogs

And an update.

I feel as if I have been neglecting this blog already, and have only been posting sporadically.

Before coming here to Sweden to study, I have envisioned myself posting so many blogs about life as an international student, and all tha, but i guess life simply has a way of screwing things for you.

don’t get me wrong. life as an international student is the best experience i’ve had so far and i would recommend it to everyone! it’s everything it’s cracked up to be! not only do you learn through the course, you learn so much more, especially about the different cultures of your fellow international students. and then there’s the parties and the socializing (and the dating!) and the travelling! oh, don’t get me started on the travelling! The thing is, i have been so busy with all the studying and the partying and the travelling that i simply do not have the time to sit down and write, which sucks!

but i’m hoping all that will change soon! (i hope!) i am forcing myself to post something at least once a week, or at least once every two weeks until the rest of my stay here in Sweden and i plan to do quick blogs that takes about 20 minutes or less to post.

my plan is to start playing a re-run of one episode from my favorite sitcoms which runs about 22 minutes or less and complete a blog post within that time.

i have bought myself a new bluetooth keyboard for iPad, which snaps seamlessly into my iPad2, and that makes it soo much easier for me to blog via Blogsy for iPad and i love it!

I have several blog topics in mind that i have yet to write and i’m kinda hoping i will get around to writing it within the coming weeks.

also, my Beats Solo headphones snapped in half about a month ago and i’m kinda bummed about that one. i need to get myself a replacement soon as i decide on a good one but it’s been hard for me to find one as the selection is very limited in the town i live in, not to mention everything is so much more expensive here than back home. luckily, my Beats Studio Pro is still intact and i’m using that until i find a good compact headphones. the Studio Pro is fantastic, but it’s just too bulky and it’s not practical to lug it all around town!

another update i’m kinda bummed about is that the security checks in European airports (at least the ones in Copenhagen, Amsterdam, Barcelona, and Paris) requires that you take out your iPads from your bag during X-ray, which sucks big time. in most airports i’ve been at before, they never ask me to take out my iPad! that’s even one of the main selling points of travelling with an iPad versus a full laptop. :/ boo.

okay. my HIMYM episode is almost done and so i must end this seemingly endless tirade!

til next week. ciao guys!

On Flying to Paris and Amsterdam for Free

Okay, not really.

 

we paid for a roundtrip ticket to Barcelona, and it just so happened that we had stopovers in both Amsterdam and Paris.

 

I have dreamt of flying to Barcelona for years now, ever since I found out that my Eurotrip itinerary in 2011 did not include a stop in Spain.

Early this year, my friend and I decided to go to Barcelona, and i was psyched! Finally, i was going to Barcelona! so we scoured the internet for cheap flights and the cheapest direct flight we found was at least 200 Danish Krona more expensive than one with stopovers. And because my friend and i are cheapskates, we opted to take the cheaper alternative and in the process, not only did we save 200 krona, we were also able to visit Amsterdam and Paris! The way I see it, we flew to Paris and Amsterdam for free, and even got paid 200 Krona in the process! haha! that’s my story and i’m sticking to it!

 

Barcelona Bound!

Years ago, when everything between us was lovely and beautiful,

you promised to take me to Spain one day.

it was one of many many other promises you made.

a promise you repeated last year.

2013 came and went

and nothing.

i gave you an ultimatum

i told you, in 2014, i’m going to Barcelona, with or without you

to which you derisively replied

“you wish!”

well, i guess joke’s on you.

cuz i’m Barcelona bound, baby!

and you can kiss my behind, all from thousands of miles up in the air, in my first-class seats!

Megalomania: When to Realize Life is Good

In a shallow, materialistic manner.

growing-up-wealthy-is-a-double-edged-sword (1)

it’s when you’ve spilt the contents of your Birkin bag all over your 900-thread count egyptian cotton sheets to look for your Omega watch because you want to take it with you on your weekend cruise with your fellow International students.

 

yeah. the life of a trust-fund baby is sweet! lol
