Long Time....

It has been so long since I have last updated. It's a testament to how busy I have been. But not just how busy I have been, rather how mobile I have been and the fact that it is not always easy to get an internet connection.

OK, so it has only been 7 days, but it has felt like a very long 7 days, thank you very much.

Let's the last time I wrote I was in Oslo...which was last week. Last week I had been in Finland, Denmark, Norway, and Sweden all within 6 days. It's a very tiring thing to do in fact and I don't recommend it. Anyway, so it is one of the reasons that I have been really tired. Last weekend Thomas over came over for Denmark to visit and that was really nice. I took Markus to see Eddie Izzard for his birthday. Eddie Izzard was really great. So the weekend had been quite nice actually.

In other news, I was told by my landlord that I had to leave the apartment at the end of the month. Apparently laws in stockholm are such that landlords can only rent their apartments for 2 years before the person living in them have "squatter's rights". So I basically I need a new place to live by 1 October. I looked at one place that was very central, but it had a lot of this old lady's furniture in it and it was really cramped. So I didn't rent it. Yesterday (Friday), I saw this beautiful one-room loft (80 sq meters). It's in Ostermalm (the richest section of stockholm), has bay windows running long one side, the lights are remote-controlled, and I have no neighbors (the building is otherwise businesses) so I can be as loud as I want. The best part? The rent is 3000 kronor cheaper than staying where I am. I agreed verbally to take the apartment the moment I saw it. But I am going to look at another 2 apartments just to say I did. I already made a verbal contract. And the company is giving me 7000 kronor for miscallaneous moving expenses which is nice too bceause in the new flat, I plan to put in some wall dividers to provide some seperation from the rest of the loft.

So today I will be going around the city, doing errands, going to the gym and other stuff. Part of me also wants to just chill out and relax, but I don't have that luxury....
