Today I was outside and planted some flowers to get som color to the surroundings. While doing so I got a visitor, a grass snake. Grass snakes are one out of two different types of snakes that we have in Sweden and they are completely harmful (at least to us human, but if I was a frog I would watch my back). He/she was quite cute but after my snake-nightmare one week ago I try to keep a distance to them. I have never been afraid of them, but now I don’t like to look or the feeling they give me xd
This is the type of things I do now when IB is done; trying to find meaningful work to do! It is not that easy, so in between the “hard work”, I plan for my parties 😀 This saturday I will have a party for my friends to celebrate graduation and my birthday. On the menu are mini-pies with Feta cheese and tomatoes, Focaccia, pasta salad, and cappuccinobrownies and lemon-elder-pie for dessert. However, I’m still planing and if anyone as an amazing recipe to share with my they are more than welcome. I’m looking for delicious cold food that are easy to serve at parties.
My sister and I went tram-spotting today in town because of the annually Tram-day. It is organized by the Swedish tram society. They take out old trams, busses and boats. I gotta say that we did not see many trams, mostly it was rain and more rain. When the tram finally come the excitement was gone. We were wet and felt that this was one of the days that you should have stayed at home. Well at home, when the rain continued to pour down the negative thoughts kept swimming around. But then I said to my self “Shape up, Sister”! The rain may keep on falling but there is always a tomorrow and a sun that will rise. Stop feeling sorry for yourself! The day may not have turned out as you wanted it to, but you still got to meet your sister and taste the new ice creme from GB. 😉
No it is time for the first semifinal in ice-hockey between Sweden and Finland which takes place in Globen, Stockholm. You go and win now Sweden!!!!!!!!!!! I’m watching this for my brother who decided to be in church rather than watching the game….yes, he is weird 😉
And the result…Sweden won with 3-0, and this means that we are in the final! Wihooooo! 😀
Tonight it is time for Eurovision in Malmö, a perfect ending of a perfekt Ib free day!
IB is finally over! Today I had my last exam, paper 3 in Chemisty, and from the moment we were asked to stop writing I couldn’t stop smiling. Knowing that all the hard work I put down during these 2 years are finally done and have hopefully paid off…it’s just a great feeling.
Still, I have a hard time grasping what this means. I feel this emptiness inside me and I do not know what to do. I have a list of hundreds of things I want to do, but where to start? I want to spend time outside and enjoy the summer that is coming, read a lot of books, for example Game of thrones, watch tv-series over and over again (I will continue write about the episodes of Criminal Minds and Supernatural where I left off)…maybe the best thing will be to wake up every morning without having any anxiety at all! Well, I needed to start somewhere, so I have now for a while watched all the highlights over and over again from yesterdays hockey game between Sweden and Canada. I love wasting my time on nothing xD

However, Is this freedom? I love having a schedule to follow and functions best when everything is planed. What happens when I can do whatever I want? honestly, I may regret saying this, but I promises that after a couple of days I will be bored. IB is hell, yes, but it is also so much more. IB prepares you for studies on universities better than most other schools. You know that even though the exam did not go very well you still have learnt a lot. There is a special atmosphere around IB too, it is a community that comes together through this struggle. IB memes are an example of this where they put up jokes about IB that is soooo true, and mostly only IB students understands them. I’m going to miss my classmates a lot since there is a specially type of people choosing IB. No normal or healthy person chose IB freely. So I guess we are a bunch of weirdos, however the smartes and best weirdos I know !

This is another chapter of my life that I’m done with and it’s not going to be easy to leave it. It has given me so many good memories and knowledge. Now I am looking forward to what’s next. In July I will receive the results from exams and also be informed wether I have gotten in to any universities in Sweden. Exciting, Exciting…..I’m so going to watch Supernatural for the whole weekend B)
