Developing tension...

The day at university started off at 10am. I didnt want to go as laziness held me tight from getting up from bed, but I fought against it and somehow managed to go to University. The fresh air in the morning was so nice. Loved it.

I like all the Christmas decorations here and there. There were small Christmas trees in almost every building!

At around 4pm I got hungry and decided to go and eat something. Yum Yum. I am tired of eating the same thing everyday. Yikes!

Ended the day with a two hour maths practice class. OH exams coming near and Im getting more and more tensed. Tonight I really need to clean my room. Tomorrow is going to be a long day once again...

What is Friendship to you?

The meaning of friendship may have different meanings from people to people. It is different because I believe it does not have a universal and similar understanding in everyone's heads. People prioritise one thing over the other. For example: A friend is someone who will always be there for you, if not, then he/she is not a good friend, etc etc. Now a days friendship has become even more difficult and complicated. For example: Friends sleep together, etc etc. Okay Okay, I am not being biased here, take it easy. It is just an example. Whatever is right for you is right for you, whatever is right for me is right for me.

In 1996 Graham Allan said that there is a lack of firmly agreed and socially acknowledged criteria for what makes a friend and in one setting we make describe someone as a friend but in another, the label may seem less appropriate. This is true isnt it?

Aristotle, suggest that the traditional idea of friendship has three components:

'Friends must enjoy each other's company, they must be useful to one another, and they must share a common commitment to the good'.

It usually happens that the first two components of this statement hold true, what goes wrong or is difficult is the third component : Sharing a common commitment to the good.

In today's world it is easy to understand the components of usefulness and pleasure but we have difficulty seeing the point of considering friendship in terms of common moral commitments.

 In my opinion, what I think is that the word "friend" or "friendship" is used very casually and easily. A friend is indeed difficult to find now a days. I may have plenty of friends, but out of everyone there is probably one or two people who are actually a REAL friend - who behaves as a friend.

"And it is those who desire the good of their friends for the friends’ sake that are most truly friends, because each loves the other for what he is, and not for any incidental quality."

Once you get to know the person and his/her morals, it make it easily to determine if the person will be a good friend or not - a pretty much good assumption.

People go around claiming themselves as friends and not even acting as one. Before I used to be heart broken by the way people behaved, back in my school life. Now that I actually understand some patterns of behaviour- I dont really feel bad about it. From experience, I have learnt to make some approximate predictions.

I am not saying that I am a perfect friend either. I have my flaws as well. However, I am learning. I have taken it into account.

If you are not intending to be my friend, then dont call yourself a friend and act like one, please! because I believe in true friendship - not of becoming a friend and getting in bed with you or backbite about other people or let you hurt me.

"To perceive a friend , therefore, is necessarily in a manner to perceive oneself, and to know a friend is in a manner to know oneself. The excellent person is related to his friend in the same way as he is related to himself, since a friend is another himself."

Even spookier...

This is how my lunch looked like today! I usually eat the same thing every time I have lunch at Uni because this is the only thing I like from the Store. Yesterday I tried the Salted McCoys, it sucked!

Today I had Mathematics and Statistics. I missed a couple of lectures before, but now I understand all of them, so I am fine. I need a lot of practice thats it.

On my way back home from Uni, I bought my mostly craved Cranberry juice and some other stuff. As soon as I entered the room I realised how messy and dirty it is! I will do all the cleaning tomorrow because its a beloved Wednesday! Yeppers!

OKay, seriously, Doesnt the kitchen look spooky? not because I edited the picture, but it is actually really dark in the kitchen. Everytime I fill up my bottle of water, I take a quick peak through the window and speed walk all the way to my room. Sometimes theres the neighbour's cat jumping over the fence, scaring the hell out of me. Oh... now even the hallway light has fused... Gaaaaaaaaaaaaah!

End of term

Background studying for World Economy portfolio Task 4: International Trade
Wow December is here! It was September when I moved to London! Great. University life has been much better than last year. I find this course very interesting, however, the work load is a lot for me. I have no clue about economics as I have never studied before and I have a stupid tendency of getting confused really easily. Too Bad. Anyways, End of term is almost here- 3weeks left! I have assignments to hand in and two exams coming up. Lots and lots of studying left. I am trying to find a studying strategy- lets see if this works lol. By the way, the internet sucks here at this house. I cant wait to get a new room to rent where the internet works perfect - it has almost turned into a dream... to get better internet. LOL! Lah Lah Lah - Back to studying. Need to finish the reading and start off the portfolio work and tomorrow I've got three seminars. After that, its time to practice maths and start the statistics assignment. Daaaaaaaaaaa!

London: Day 1

East London Neighbourhood
Getting ready, didnt even wash my face eh.
 My journey was pretty good, even though there was a time when I was starving in the plane. The egg mayyonaise baguette saved my night. My friend came to pick me up from the airport and helped me a lot with the heavy luggages. At the station I found my uncle and his daughter waiting for me. I slept off after a lot of girly gossip and woke up feeling kind of wierd. Anyways Im going off now, with some friends and need to go for house hunting as well. Ciao!

Swedish wishes

 I had a lot of fun this Eid as well, with Tas, just like the Eids we have spent together the last 4 years. Probably this is the last Eid we spent together :/

Oh the Åbo (Finland) cruise was awesome with my friends! We all had lots of fun!

I had nothing to do today, so thought about printing my flight ticket and the pre-enrollment papers. I met my friend in the centrum and decided to gossip for a while. He had a raspberry pie and I had the usual, apple pie. We talked about Economics and specially about - China, India and USA :p It was fun!

Bought this pair of lovelies today - just at a price of 35 kr when the original price was 179kr. I am so happy!

Am I lucky?

I still remember those old times back in high school, when I used to alternate between the two ways of going to school - one was by going to Zinkensdamm by train and then take the bus from there; The other being the train going directly to Skanstull. I thought about going to Södra station for the gym but then took the wrong bus and headed towards Hornstull instead. (All this happened a few days ago). I didnt feel like going back, so I went to another branch of the gym instead.

It looks all the same there, the old buildings and the roads. I have come here for 2 years and have had coffee in the cafe's, have had McDonalds and chinese...and so much more. I miss the old days sometimes.

Anyways, am I lucky or what? I got in touch with my friend's older sister, who is like a sister for me too and she got me into a part-time job in London! Omg, she is such a sweetheart - I will always be grateful to her. I will be living with her as well. So yah, life will be great in London but Ill have to struggle a lot. I know nothing about Economics and I need to study hard and work in the weekends. I study at night anyways, so working is not a problem. I need extra money.

The last picture is of two perfumes I got from my mom to take with me. :p

More space More things

Ok, now I have managed to get a larger suitcase from my mom! This one is pretty heavy itself but everything all together weighs only 17kg and I can put in more 6kgs! I have a set of speakers to put in as well as some glasses and shoes. I think all will add up to 23kgs. Atleast I hope so! And I can carry another 5 kgs in my hand luggage - there I will take my laptop which weight almost 2kgs and the rest, I dont know! :) Anyways, my ticket has been booked - flying to London on the 7th of September! WHeeehee!

Saturday, August 20, 2011


Okay, there are a number of things I have bought - don't have the energy to click pictures of them all. The big problem is that everything is not fitting inside my suitcase now! I need to buy a bigger luggage. Oh!

New City New Place

Pictures: Taken from : Four dresses I absolutely want to buy and take them to London!

Hey everyone!

I kind of took a break from blogging for a couple of days! I have been busy searching for private accommodation to rent in London so that I can move in this September. I am not done doing my shopping here in Stockholm but I hope to do some, before leaving. I bought a new phone though: Sony Ericsson Arc and it is pretty good! I had no idea on how to use an Android phone. It took me a while to understand it. Anyways, I hope to get a room to rent sometime soon!

Oh yah, One more update! Mom bought me this Saree as a gift <3

Pink and Yellow

Before going to SATS, I needed to give back a nice top that I bought, so I went back to New Yorker and bought these two tshirts instead. I love the colours. Yellow and Pink... Oh cute! After that I went to the gym and exercised. Tonight I am going out for some jogging as well. My brother wants to chill outside so Ill find something fun to do. My muscles ache, oh I am so going to gym again tomorrow! I am waiting until the swimming place opens up in august, then Ill be going for swimming as well.

Upgrading Time!

I went to the centrum to look around and I saw these two nice tops. I love the brown one specially because I never had one like that! I look a little round because of my tummy, but I hope to thin down by the end of the summer. I bought a yearly card for gymming at SATS. I am proud of that! The headphones were just bought because they were on 50% discount, costing only 49kr from Kjell & Company.

Anyways, the day before yesterday, I was searching for jobs at arbetsformedlingen and looked through. Yesterday I finished writing the swedish version of my CV and I sent it to the different arbetsgivare... Today I received a call from one of the least expected ones. She asked me a bunch of questions, asking me why i want to be a personal assistant. I am going for an interview tomorrow. Lets see how it turns out to be!

A little bit of this n that!

I have always wanted to hand tight pants of this colour but never actually bought them. Finally I thought about buying these coloured pants from Veromoda and they were cheap as well, for example, the right one costed 74kr instead of 259kr! And the pink kettle is just too cute (Clas Olsson), which will be taken back to Uk with me. It will be handy when making coffee!

Paddling Boat

I have become so fat! I need to start exercising! Today I went out and paddled in the water and got wet in the rain... the most wonderful feeling you can get. The boat got stuck on the rocks and I got so scared!

Saturday, July 16, 2011


I have been in Sweden for almost 2 days now and still 2 months to go! I am enjoying my days here, specially I am eating a lot of good food that mom is cooking. Oh dear, I have to join the gym soon! Yesterday I walked by the river...and today I went to the centrum and met some of my other friends and ate ice cream. It was fun to shop as it was REA on most of the shops, specially New Yorker where i got this Sandal for just 35kr and the accessories for 10kr each, bought from Six. Tomorrow some guests are coming and my friends and I will grill someday after that.
