Our 2 weeks travel to Tokyo and Seoul starts in a month, I am very excited!
My interest in the Japanese language started when I visited Japan two years ago. In fact, I acquired not just an interest in the language itself, but also in the country and the culture.
It had been a winter without any snow in Gothenburg so far. I was so jealous of the snowy pictures from all around the world and wondering when it would snow here, as it used to happen every year around December or January. Then, it finally snowed on Saturday!
38th Gothenburg International Film Festival starts next weekend. Since the day it was first launched in 1979, it is the largest annual film event in Nordic countries. Aside from the hundreds of films from all around the world, the festival also offers many interesting seminars, and art and music events.
It is one of the most relaxing times of the year that we give a break for daily life struggles and duties. I am going to Istanbul today to spend the holiday with my family and friends. It will be so nice catching up with them, feeling the coziness of being home, eating good food, and visiting new places in the city.
As you may know I love swimming, and I have been training myself some weekdays before work at the swimming pool near our place. I had made some attempts like buying the sports watch Garmin Swim, and also getting some tips from my swimming friends, but neither had much of an effect on my discipline.
One of the biggest problems I used to have with my wardrobe in the old apartment was that I didn’t have enough space for my shoes. So, I stashed them in a part of the closet and never got to see which pairs I had as an option when it came to picking an appropriate pair with an outfit. This began to be a problem when I started to buy new pairs that were very similar to the ones I already had.
I had never been a scent and perfume enthusiast, but my habit of wearing some fragrance dramatically decreased after I moved to Sweden. When a few colleagues of mine kindly asked me to not to wear perfume because they had allergies, I completely pushed my lovely perfume bottle to the bottom of my drawer and left it there for so long.
