We only part to meet again. ~John Gay

6 Jun

I haven’t told much about myself here, mostly because I don’t have a reason to, and I think it’s unneccesary for this kind of blog. BUT today I’ll make an exception, so to the people who don’t wanna hear me babbling about me: scroll down and look at the pics instead. Or have some chocolate^^. And to the rest on u:

My name is Grace and I just finished my 2nd year of uni, majoring in tourism management. During this semester I’ve been busy as hell because of learning chinese and korean, working at two different part time jobs, being head designer (together with another wonderful girl) of my uni’s teathre group, as well as being chairwoman (together with another wonderful person) of my uni’s international committee. I’d like to think of myself as a superwoman, but that is a secret.

So what I wanna talk about is the experience of being Chairwoman of the international committee (IntCom). IntCom consists of a group of individuals that really, really care about the international exchange students that arrive to our uni every semester. We are mentors for the exchange students and we plan different events for them, such as visiting museums, the parliament or simply just a masquerade party. We show them how things are done “the swedish way” lol

This semester I was lucky and got two korean guys as my mentees (not really, I picked them hehehe). I had a really great time with them and got to know some other exchange students as well. But the saddest thing about being in IntCom is that things aren’t statical, people come and go and in the end of each semester you realise how you are just a tiny bit of their life in Sweden, nothing else. And the all people that you have been so used to having around your for a semester, are suddenly starting to go back to their countries, one by one.

And frankly, it hurts.

I just got of the phone with my mentees and they told me tonight was the last chance to meet them before they left. I always knew they were gonna go back home, but I think the phone call really made me realize that they are actually going. So with a thick voice and blank eyes I said good bye and hung up. And then i burst into tears.

It surprised me how much these individuals actually mean to me as friends after just one semester.

So with this post, I really want to thank you, my dear mentees, for being so kind to me and having patience with me for this short period of time. I have really had a great time with u and the other exchange students! 🙂

And thank you for teaching me how to swear in korean, I believe it will be pretty useful when I go there.

See you guys in the future 😀

I was gonna post some pics on wordpress yesterday and I saw that all of the other blogs in the news feed was censored, made me all

But today everything was back on track! This really made me realise how much I love my blog and to read other’s blogs…Even if no one is reading this crapblog I still love it so so so so much T.T

eh, back to topic. I found a dream catcher (? (I suck.)) in my room! yay.

NO EDIT THIS TIME!

ofc I had to edit at least one, turning it into this dreamy and poethic pic. I guess this is the only way I could be poetic without being THAT lame lol.

Oh wait! My latest obsession:

Improvisation

School hasn’t even started yet and I’m already suffocating from all the things i needa do. So, in order to complete the tasks before school starts I made different list with different priorities and dates and stuff. I don’t want to brag, but I’m a hell of a list-maker. The only problem is when I’m about to start, because I never know where to begin. So I usually just

and do something completely different.

My last try on being effective lead to making my shelf a corner for taking pics that turned out like this:

They all kinda look the same, but…..yea:)
