The week that’s been…. Stockholm, cafe visits and family time

Hello and good morning 🙂

Writing this post at 00.23 Sunday morning….  but not sure what time or day it is for you when you’re reading this!

This week has just flown by…. crazy that it is already Sunday. But i must admit, i am longing for Monday. I am longing to get back into routines and structure. I am longing back to my own apartment and longing to just focus on my own work for a little while. Recently i have really gotten out of routine and structure in my life and after my weekend away (i will get to that) i feel like i really need to structure up my life again.

Getting back into essay writing, getting back into regular lectures, getting back into meeting friends on a regular basis, getting back into regular gym session, getting back into a normal sleep&wake up routine, getting some structure into my life again.

Recently i have felt overworked and overstressed but at the moment i am just feeling motivated. Motivated to work hard and just get things done – and i am longing for it!

So onto my week…? As mentioned, the week has flown by.

Last weekend consisted of 4 days work in a row (starting at 6am on Saturday and Sunday), so Monday was my cocoon day. A day where i could just be at home, do some cooking, study, rest and prepare for the week.

Tuesday and Wednesday were just two study days where i had a bunch of course litterature to try to read, as well as preparing for the workshop/lecture i was going to hold…. which brings me to the reason why i travelled to Stockholm. I was going to hold a lecture/workshop with my mum, but there was a change of plans and instead we had to postpone the workshop and hold it a later date. As i had book my tickets already i travelled down and decided to just take a weekend away because it will be another few months until i get the chance to travel to Stockholm again.

So these past few days i have eaten at my favourite cafe, Mahalo.


I have had tacos with my family. Eaten a surprisingly delicious avocado sandwich at Joe&the Juice. I have looked around a favourite store of mine, Paradiset (more about it HERE). I have been for walks with my dog. I have made a cake. I have had a photosession with my step dad/mum. I have gone to my sisters housewarming party. I have tried to study but not really had the time for it (Instead i have just give myself these few days off from studying and getting back to it on Monday.) And that’s about it……

It has been a good week, and it has been great to spend time with my family and especially my dog. But i am also ready to just get back into my study-mode and focus 120% on myself and my goals at the moment with no distractions, hahah!

Sometimes you need a break from your regular life and routines to realise just how much you appreciate your regular life….. or maybe a break is exactly what you need to realise what you need to change to appreciate your daily life more. I.e you shouldn’t need an escape from your own life.
