Feels like home ๐Ÿกย 

Today has been a busy day, but so has most days since we’ve moved in. 

I have not had time to update on how everything went down. We moved in on the 1st of August. We also managed to get most of our things here. We have our own table which we made using a piece of marble and wooden legs.


We also made our own bed! Using 8 EU-pallets and only placing a thick heavy mattress on top. And it’s perfect! We store boardgames and other things in the gaps. (I’ll post pictures of our bed in another post later on) 

We have also bought a ton of furniture which I’ll also post about later. A room divider/shelf unit, a sofa and two chairs. 


Can you imagine the paintings that we’ve hung up are from my rebellious teenage years?? I can’t believe I’ve kept them. 

One of the chairs that we bought from an antique shop here in Aalborg. It resembles the chairs I’ve had growing up so I basically just had to buy it. The mirror is lended to us bu Laust sister Lise. And it fits perfectly with all of our furniture and it’s also the perfect size! ๐Ÿ˜


Our second chair was also bought from the same antique shop in Aalborg. And our drawer/desk/shelf combination was from a second hand shop in Skรธrping. 


Last but not least our bed. It’s lower than most beds but that’s because we only have brought 4 of our EU pallets. And there are 4 left at Laust’s parents house. But it will probably still be lower than average but we really don’t mind. It’s different and it suits us. ๐Ÿ™‚ 


Above our bed we’ve hung our Where’s wally? Puzzle. We’ve completed it a while back and it took us about 9-10 hours. We then glued it on a piece of wood to have it hanging here. ๐Ÿ™‚ 

I will make a separate blog post later on about everything else. But so far so good! 

We are settling in. And it’s happened so fast! We’ve had Laust’s family visiting us today and it was so good seeing them! We’ve both missed them a lot! They also brought a lot of our things and helped us think of solutions for our tiny living arrangement ๐Ÿ˜…

I’m already missing this place! I can’t believe how fast time flies! It was only four days ago I was laying on a sunny beach โ˜€๏ธ without a care in the world! 
A few days before we started packing, we went sailing with Laust’s mum and Dad! It was so much fun! It was my second time sailing and I got seasick ๐Ÿ˜ท!! 


We sailed to Tribunj and enjoyed a few drinks! 

 

I had a bottled cosmo and a bottled sex on the beach! Absolutely refreshing in that type of heat!


I’m incredibly lucky to have such an amazing mother in law! Everyone knows the horror of the in laws BUT GUESS WHAT! I don’t have any of that!! Laust’s mum and dad are the most chill and laid back in laws I’ve ever met! And they’re so kind and caring! And I can always be myself around them! And have a good time!


Me floating next to my mother in law Bente, in the incredible waters of Croatia! 

This picture was taken by Laust’s dad Sten, and it really captured how relaxing this entire trip has been โ˜€๏ธ ๐ŸŒŠ

Best FOUR CHEESE pizza in Croatia ๐Ÿ• ๐Ÿ‡ญ๐Ÿ‡ทย 



Laust took me on a dinner date where we ordered a JUMBO pizza! It was almost as big as the table ! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ•(it kinda was more cheese than actual pizza BUT WHO CARES WHEN IT TASTES THIS GOOD)  it is definitely the best pizza on the island, the resturants name is Makina, and it’s in Jezera. 

Jezera is a city on the island of Murter. And it’s one of the prettiest places I’ve ever been to! ๐Ÿ˜



This picture is from one of our hikes. During our two weeks trip, we hiked up and down the mountains to discover hidden parts of the island ๐ŸŒด such as the cliffs that lead to clear blue waters. 


The water was incredible! It was full of sea urchles. So I had to buy shoes I could swim in. 


Sea Urchles are ocean hedgehogs, Laust took one out of the water for me to see it. I’ve never seen a creature like that ever before! They are incredible! They die easily though when people step on them or when they’re out of the water for too long! But we made sure that didn’t happen to this one! 

Sea urchles are very delicate and they’re delicious! They are an important delicacy in some parts of the world! You just open one and sprinkle some lemon juice over it and serve it!

Pancake Wednesday ๐Ÿฅž

We flew back to Copenhagen on Monday, the flight was comfy, and we weren’t that tired when we arrived, so we actually decided to take a stroll around the city before heading to our train.

We got on the train, and there was track/road work, so we were unable to take it al the way home. We had to take a bus and another train before we finally got to Aalborg. 

We’ve been here now for about 3 days and we’re basically just enjoying our last week of freedom before we get busy with the new flat and the moving in etc. 

Laust made us pancakes just now ๐Ÿฅž  and they taste SO GOOD. He really makes the best pancakes ever! ๐Ÿ˜

At the moment: ๐Ÿ‡ญ๐Ÿ‡ท

We’re currently at a restaurant relaxing, but earlier today we went sailing, and took a short dip in the ocean. It was colder than usual but it was alright. I got a bit seasick shortly after we got going, since I’m not used to sailing, IT WAS MY FIRST TIME EVER!!! But it was fun!! 


Here’s Laust enjoying a cold one when we got back to land ๐Ÿบ 

I’ll post more pictures, videos etc later on. They’re still on my camera ๐Ÿ˜… โ˜€๏ธ ๐ŸŒŠ ๐Ÿšค

๐Ÿ” Thursdayย 

We got up at 6 am had breakfast and left the house at 8. We traveled for about 2 hours to get to Laust’s school in Malmรถ. His school is really impressive! They have an indoor skatepark and it’s gigantic! ๐Ÿ˜ 

After he finished up at school we went for a walk and ended up going to the cafรจ where we had our first date and our very first coffee together. We went to that cafรจ on our wedding day too. Right after the ceremony. We also hung a lock with our names on it.


And almost a year later, IT’S STILL THERE!!! ๐Ÿ˜โค๏ธ

We got coffe and I had tons of emails to send, so we stayed for about an hour at Le crossiant, which is a French cafรจ that had us reminiscing about our good times in France ๐Ÿ‡ซ๐Ÿ‡ท. 

We then went back and continued our walk, and decided to visit my old place. I used to live in a flat that was above a cafรจ where I worked a few years ago. I got to show and tell Laust about the place. The good and the bad. The place kinda looked the same, but at the same time it didn’t. They have done major changes, expanded the kitchen and built another room on the second floor. I miss living there. And I’m so very grateful for having had the opportunity to be surrounded by the people who run it. And they’re one of the few people I can say thank you to. It’s thanks to them and others that I am where I am today. 

After saying hi to a few people, and getting shocked over the fact that so many have moved..  we walked around so more, and thn than I finally went and saw a doctor. 

I found out that I’m alright, but for more precise tests I need to go to Bjรคrred and get a check up. But I suffer from anxiety and stress. 

We then decided to get the train back to Copenhagen and grab something to eat. We barely ate anything other than breakfast and a vegetarian lunch that day.. which was basically a curry bean sandwich.. I’m not that into beans ๐Ÿค“

Laust wanted to go to yoburger but I was too hungry to walk all the way there, so we went to Tgi Fridays and got burgers. DELICIOUS BURGERS ๐Ÿ˜

We started by getting appetisers, I got mozzarella sticks and Laust got chicken strips. The burger I got was the jack Daniels chicken sandwich, which isn’t really a burger burger ๐Ÿ” and Laust pulled meat burger which had a big chunk of homemade delicious fried onions ๐Ÿ” 


I got myself a glass of lemonade ๐Ÿ‹ everything about this meal was perfect!!

 

Definitely one of the best burgers I’ve had. 

The best burger place in order of tastiness: 

  1. Five guys 
  2. O’Learys 
  3. Tgi Fridays 


The best part about the meal and the entire day, is this guy here ๐Ÿ’– The purpose of the spoil yourself parade yesterday, was mostly because Laust got accepted to the school he applied for, and I’M SO PROUD OF HIM!! He’s done an amazing job!! And he’s earned it! ๐Ÿ˜ We also got ourself an apartment!!! Thanks to Laust’s sister Lise!! ๐Ÿ˜ She posted a story on her instagram and got a heaps of messages, and one of those messages had the perfect apartment for us!! ๐Ÿ˜ It all seems unreal! I still can’t believe it! But everything is falling into place!!! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ

๐Ÿ” Thursdayย 

One of many.ย 

This might be a bit too personal.. but something inside of me is screaming for me to share this.. And honestly.. not talking about things like that.. makes people think it’s not real. Not common. But depression is real. It happens to a lot of people. And there is nothing wrong with anyone who suffers. 

They are not crazy

I don’t remember much of that particular day.. but I know it was in the 9th grade.. I might have been 14 1/2 at the time.. not that sure.. it was a really difficult time for me back then.. I don’t really know why.. it wasn’t just being bullied.. or being left out.. or alone.. I thought I was fine.. I was seeing someone..  or many.. so called therapists,physiologists, “adults”  did the whole talk about what’s wrong, get told why things are the way they are.. and leave with a smile pretending everything is alright now that I let everything out, “I feel lighter” “heavy weight has been taken off my shoulders”

But not many know this.. barely anyone to be honest.. the one I told.. didn’t seem to care.. even when I showed her the cuts on my arms.. I remember we were in a small computer room at school.. I was wearing a knitted navy blue sweater.. that made me really itchy.. and the more I itched the more I bled, and even when I told her that hey I tried to kill myself a few days ago. All she could say was why – we didn’t speak much after that. 

It all started with me skipping school that day. That place was hell for me. Bjรคrrhovskolan. But I didn’t always let it show.. no one knew.. although I wasn’t that discreet when it came to skipping classes and my grades.. but nobody cared.. teachers treated me as the bum they thought I was.. 

I skipped that day.. my mum got mad.. but she still had to go to work.. my dad was working in Stockholm.. and he wasn’t coming home this weekend.. and my sister was at school.. it was her first year at Katedralskolan.. so it was the perfect time..

I raided the medicine cabinet.. I took every Alvedon, ipren and painkiller I could find.. I had atleast 30-50 pills.. I sat in bed.. sorting them.. size by size.. kind by kind.. I poured myself a big glas of water.. made sure the tap was running for a really long time.. so it would be cold cold 

I started taking them one by one.. I didn’t feel anything.. so I went on two by two.. till there were none.. I remember feeling dizzy afterwards and then passing out.. my stomach hurt a lot when I later on woke up.. I don’t remember much of what happened.. everything was blurry, I don’t know if I passed out for hours or minutes.. I couldn’t move once I was fully awake.. I couldn’t speak.. my head hurt my stomach hurt.. I had a few messages from my mum on my phone.. asking if I feel better.. I panicked on the inside.. I called my sister saying hey I tried to die and now I’m sick.. I don’t think she understood me.. I didn’t understand myself at the point.. I panicked some more and called a suicide hotline for help.. they kept asking for my name and address so I hung up right away..

I started messaging my sister begging her to come home.. she refused because school was super important back then.. (not any different now) she called Mum.. and told her.. 

Mum came home.. found me in a pile of my own vomit in bed.. she was furious.. 

They emptied the house of every pill that’s ever been there.. And my dad found out of course.. 
And all I could think in that moment was.. that I’m that big of a failure that I failed my own suicide.. 
Life didn’t get any better after that.. but here I am. Alive and well. And I found and lost happiness, love, friends, moneyat least a million times. And it doesn’t bother me. I’m happy to be here. 

And I’m happy that you are too. 

Life isn’t worth fighting against. So live. Experience. Love. Laugh. Cry. SCREAM THE FUCK OUT. 

Honestly. If knew that my life would look the way it does now back then.. well I’d never attempt suicide.. I’d never do anything.. other than be thankful. Because right now.. life is beyond everything I’ve ever expected. 


It does get better.


And I am a living proof of it.
