Eureka!

27 November 2008

Oh my god. Two post in two days. I must have way too much time on my hands.. (:D)

Crashed early yesterday, just after I wrote some news here, while watching some Dexter Season 3. It is a great series, so if you haven't watched it, doit, doit now!

Anyway, did not sleep very well. I woke up in the middle of the night, coughing like a british coal miner. Fell asleep again and woke up at 9 am feeling like a plastic bag full of razorblades. Since I forgot some English papers in school, I had to go there before our Alias class and do the homework then instead. After having breakfest, the first one in like 3 weeks, I took some painkillers and other medicine and headed out.

It kind of sucks to have a really bad ache in your throat but not feel sick in any other way, so I couldn't really justify staying at home.

After school me and Erik went shopping, which we were supposed to do yesterday. I finally found a pair of shoes that were adequat. I also went to the applestore to get a new external hard-drive. After beeing in another store and asking for a hard-drive and then beeing directed to the hair-dryers, I didn't really feel like going scouting for another place with cheap computer accessories.

I have been a bit nervous about my small external drive crashing, so when we discussed it earlier this week, I decided to get another drive as backup to the backup. I would cry for days if I lost all files of my schoolwork through the years.

Found a pair of Brown nike airs for 80euros.. (I like brown...alot) And a 500gb lacie disk for 90 euros.

The loot!

I have started to contact some companys for my internship. First out is POC in Stockholm, but I really need to get crackin on that forsaken portfolio. Im just so useless at doing graphical designs, combined with the fact that I haven't taken enough pictures through the years of my "accomplishments" which makes it pretty hard to do something adequate.

Anyway, I found another picture in my phone from last sunday. Me and Erik went to a grillhouse and got some food before going to school to work on the project. We got a grillplatter for two.

I think it is suffice to say that we both got a bit sick afterwards. Something in that dish wasn't properly cooked. Hopefully I do not have salmonella now... yuck. Not going there again. (it was called ChiChis grillhouse or something. Beware!)

Now I am going to install the disk and make the backups my subconcious is bitching about.

Wiedersehen!

Technical difficulties.

It has come to my attention that some of you guys can't see all the pictures I put up in here.

It seems to be a problem with Internet Explorer only, but if that is not true, please speak up! I will try to figure out what to do with the help of my internet-savvy friends.

On another note, HAPPY BIRTHDAY DAVID!

Over and out.

Best three days so far..

02 November 2008

This thursday, my family arrived. Isabelle, Mom and Dad drove 1180 km to see me. Hard to explain how it felt when they called and mom said "I think we are on your street now". I ran down the stairs, and out to an empty street. I started looking for them, and suddenly I saw their motorhome a little bit further down the street. Isabelle was standing outside it and we just ran to eachother, crashing in to a huge hug and a few tears of joy!

After dropping of some off the stuff my parents brought for me, we headed for the camping area 15 minutes outside of the citycenter. Me and Isa was going to stay at a hotel 200 meters from the camping. Everything went according to plan, and we ended up having dinner in the motorhome (Moms pasta bolognese!)

Friday we went to the Landszeughause, which is a huge armory collection of baroque weapons, and afterwards to Kunsthaus. The latter was ridiculous. A really pale exhibition of "biomorph"-inspired art, however, zeughaus was awesome. They had shitloads of old swords, rifles knights armor.

We decided to go up to Schlossberg to eat lunch, and then see the view. It was absolutely magnificent. It is hard to believe that I live 5 minutes from this incredible site. The tour of graz ended by me and Isa going to a few different stores, looking for shoes, ending up with new pants. In the evening, we again had dinner in the motorhome, and boy did it taste good.

Saturday we went to a town called Riegersburg, 40 minutes from Graz. This was a old famous castle, aproximately 850 years old, built on an old vulcanic mountaine. I do not have any good pictures that I can show you, but Isa will send me some when she has come home.

Afterwards we went to a Buschenschank, had some traditional Austrian food, and then we headed home. As usual, we had dinner in the motorhome, then we went back to the hotel, because they were leaving at 6AM.. We had some breakfest, left the camping and drove to town where I was dropped off at Lendplatz to make our farewells.

Seeing them drive away is definately one of the hardest and saddest things that have happened to me in a very long time. I felt so insanely alone.

These were definately the best 3 days since I got to Austria, and the saddest moment in a couple of years. But it was totally worth it.

Right now I have to slam my head into the schoolwork, which is probobly a good way to get my mind distracted from the sad stuff. We have a small presentation on wednesday and I haven't done anything since Thursday.

I'll get some photos up as soon as possible.

I love you Isabelle.
