I'm writing a play and it's intoxicating. I never knew it would be so fun and so difficult. It's about isolation and the feeling of not belonging. About not speaking the language. Three people meet at heathrow that doesn't know each other. They are forced to stay together because of a storm. Violence, a man cutting himself and nice shoes. We've got it all.

But I need to write a critique on it and it kills me. Shoot my creativity down you bastards.

I'm also writing a short story. I can post it here. I will post it.

Bought way to many things in London. The shopping here is something else. The amount of loveliness is overpowering.

Now more coffee and writing nonsence about my play.

What have I done since I last wrote here? I don't know. Worked hard with english I guess. So far so good but it takes much longer for me to write than anyone else naturaly. But hey it's fun so I just carry on.

But there are a lot of directions, what the teachers like and don't like. It is also quite scary to put your heart out like that.

And been to Edinburgh, had my parents over for a visit, seen movies at the cinema and at uni, seen musicals and had a general good time. Been lonly. Been social. Been drunk. Not felt that much of homesickness but still look forward to going home in a month. My computer crashed on me, my ipod got stolen. Bought beautiul dresses. Thought much about language. What that means to speak your second language constantly. Think in your second language.

I know. I'm crap at this. But have a second swedish blog now as well and I guess that is the reason for not posting for a month. I'm in london and I'm sick. It might be swineflue I don't know but I hate it anyway. Fever, headache, a thoat that hurt as hell and general feeling awful. But let's make a list on things of london

- Live in a room at the halls and have wonderful people around me. We cook together and hang out most of the time. Unfortunately they're exchange students so they will go home after a semester.

- Classes are great. All of our tutors are professional writers ore filmmakers which is fantastic.

- London is a fantastic city but it takes about 45 minutes to get down there.

- I've bought a bowlerhat

- I've seen Love Labours Lost at The Globe

- I'm a member of the British Film Institute

- My English is doing fine but it is frustrating.

- Starting to kow the ways of this city now and it's fantastic. It's absolutly huge.

summer is coming to an end when I hardly ever understood that it started. I have almost done nothing but worked this summer. Just a few days off here and there and one whole week of holiday which I spend at my dads summer house. But this weekend was no work at all which was so nice. But couldn't sleep the night between thursday and friday. Worked and then had a whole lot of people to meet on friday so I was up for 20 hours. At the end when we were sitting at a fantastic bar in the south o Stockholm my friend K just told me to go home. I almost fell asleep on the tube. Yesterday I slept, hang around at a friends new apartment just a few blocks away from my dad and bumped into my uncle on the way home. And today I found a pair of trousers for about 8 euros which was great, saw a Ingmar Bergman film and hang out with K. Great Great Weekend.

But. I am moving to London in just a few weeks. I still can't get my head around it. Just saw London inc on TV and started thinking. I am moving there. I am actually moving abroad. Away from my parents and my whole family and all my friends. It is wild. I have just treated it as something you say. I know that it's real, I have been working my ass off to get it all together with money, insurance, accommodation etc. etc. and just gone around telling everyone that I'm moving to London just like that. Not really thinking about it as reality. I have to work and live and write english and how is that gonna work out. I am both so fucking exited and scared like hell. But I love the whole blank page feeling about it. I really don't have a clue how its gonna be. In Sweden you have an idea how university is gonna be even if you'd never been to one 'cause its your country. But here. No idea. No idea about the students or teachers or anything. I can guess and I realize that it's not gonna be that different but still, new culture.

But next weekend gonna be special and a needed break from this. We are giving my dad his 60'th birthday present. Me and my brother and sister are taking him walking in the mountains. We did it every summer as kids but haven't done it in years. Gonna be so much fun, I love it and he does so its gonna be really special doing it with them.

That must be my longest post in months. Sorry but been so much with work and didn't have any internet for quite some time and you know.

And please check out Trentemöller, has been my dru of choice lately.
