On the train now! Yay! Had to go to the pharmacy to get some shit for my blisters. The curse of new Converse amiright?? Also went to Starbucks and got a... Mango/Passionfruit juice thingy. Really good! Tasted like the outside part of Solero ice cream (Swedes know what I mean haha). Also I don't get the deal with putting an e at the end of my name. Like I always say just Katrin but for some reason it ends up Katrine, Catrine, Cathrine, Catherine etc. Like NO. Stop!!! Hahah...

Probably going to spend the entire train ride playing the app game "2048" that my colleague showed me this week. ADDICTED. And I've still not even really figured out how to do it hahaha. I'm still stuck on the first level but it's fun and I'm getting a little better at it. Almost forgot to get off the bus the other day 'cause I was playing the whole way home... Any of you guys play?

Wore these awesome rose plugs from Fux Jewellery yesterday!

Hey guys! Sorry for going AWOL yesterday haha I was swamped all afternoon and evening so I completely lost track of time.

UPS came and picked up the stupid package anyway. Also got all the orders from my web shop shipped which was good. Then I had to go home, do some packing and stuff and go to sleep. We're off work tomorrow and only have half a day today so I'm heading to my man after work yay! Staying there until Sunday so that's going to be awesome as always.

Also had to keep packing and like straighten my hair and stuff this morning which takes 100 years, but I didn't get out of bed in time so there was no time for breakfast OR coffee haha, so I had to buy two sandwiches at 7eleven which cost me like $50000 + drink the coffee at work. Not a great start to the day haha! But oh well. Going to have something good for lunch before the train leaves I think. We'll see.

New video will be up tonight or tomorrow! So keep your eyes out! x

This package will be the death of me I swear. I've been waiting for my new studio lamps for like 1.5 months and when I FINALLY got them, it was a fucking sunbed. So now I have to stay home from work ALL morning just 'cause UPS is coming to pick it up sometimes between like 8 and 1 o'clock. Great. Also the weather is horrible and I have to go to the grocery store to get duct tape to close this fucker up. UGH.

Bad day. But the sun is poking out right now so maybe it'll get better haha. IF they come to pick it up at 12 I'll head into work during my lunch break and ship all the orders on the way! I haven't had a chance to do it yet but I'm going to do it today either way. Would be great to do it ASAP of course.

Okay time to head to the store and then have breakfast while doing whatever work I can do from home.

So I got this question just now on Tumblr, and even though I wrote a reply there I thought I'd make a blog post about it 'cause I have so much more to say.

I struggle every single day with not doing what's expected of me by other people. This is extremely difficult 'cause everyone is surrounded by expectations in one way or another. But what you realize pretty soon after you start doing what YOU want, is that it feels pretty darn good.

When it came time for me to choose a "major" in high school, which is what we do in Sweden, the science program was a given. It "opened up all doors for me". That was what I was told and what other people told me. It's great! Never mind that I hate science hahah, that's irrelevant. I ended up attending two different schools in a 6 month period, before I dropped out to start over again the fall after.

This time I took the social science program with a media major and it was a perfect fit for me! All three years were great and I actually remember it as a fun time. I learned so much and it was exactly what was meant for me to do. Did I know this at the time of choosing? No I didn't, so odds are I wouldn't have made the right choice even if I "followed my gut", so I guess I just had to fail once to be able to successfully make it through all three years, and that's fine!

Then it came time for me to choose my university program and went for graphic design 'cause I had a thing for it during the time period that I had to pick something. So I did, I moved, and already after the first semester I realized that it wasn't really what I wanted. But I just went with it and stuck it out for another TWO years. Then I had enough and decided to drop out. One semester before getting my bachelor degree. Why you may ask? Why didn't I just stick it out? Well what the heck am I going to do with a bachelor degree in something that I hate? Makes no sense. So I decided to drop out and take another leap into the unknown, in the search for the thing I actually wanted to do.

I ended up in a new town, where I know no one, far away from my family, boyfriend and friends with a full time job. How did this happen? I don't even know how I ended up here!

What I'm trying to say is that I've tried, time and time again, to do what is expected of me. And it literally has NEVER worked out for me hahaha! And it has been EQUALLY DIFFICULT every single time when I have to make the decision to follow my own dreams and go where my heart takes me. It's never never easy to do that for me, but every time after I've done it, everything takes a step towards the better.

It's okay to be scared and it's okay not to know what you want to do. But never feel like YOUR dream is bad and not worth pursuing! OF COURSE there's hope if you don't attend college. There's hope if you follow your dream. Have ambitions, live an awesome life! Be happy! That's all you have to do. There truly is no point in spending your time trying to please other people 'cause they're not the ones living your life in the end.

I fail all the time, but I'm not a failure for it haha. I just live and learn and move on! x

Yay!​ Finally received my invitation to Gultuben 2015, which is the Swedish YouTube awards. So pretty. I've definitely moved up a few rows since last year haha...

I'm exhausted right now so I'm just going to get into bed, Skype a little with my man and the get to snoozing. Probably going to have some porridge or something as well 'cause I'm still freaking hungry and I just hate going to sleep hungry. It sucks and I can't focus on anything other than food haha!

Hope y'all had a good Monday, even though Mondays generally suck really hard. On to the next day!
