Today is the last day of February and the first day that I have seen the sun...dare I say that spring has finally arrived in Stockholm? But more importantly, how have two months passed by so quickly?!
Can one be depressed without realizing they were depressed? Looking back, I think sometime between Marta's visit and my excursion to Denmark, I must have unwittingly been caught by the frozen grip of the Sweden's unforgiving winter. Dark lonely nights coupled with confusing forays into Swedish dating would nudge any
But now, as I sit outside during my lunch break with the soft rays of sunlight warming my face, I feel that something else is being warmed…. my soul perhaps? My negativity seems to have retreated along with the melting snow, and I am remembering why I came to Stockholm in the first place-to LIVE, to LEARN, to LOVE, to experience a new culture, to push my boundaries...
With all that said, March is a new month, my last month, in beautiful(now sunny) Scandi. So yes! with my new found optimism I have plotted my remaining time here:
3/1: Hellsgården Sauna by Lake Källtorpssiön
3/2: Skansen Open-air Museum on Djurgården Island
3/3: Fotographiska Museum, Vassar Museum(Vasamseet)
3/8: Ice Bar
3/9: SVMK Fest!
3/10: Kungliga Slottet(Royal Palace) 12:15 changing of the guards, Hilma af Klint Exhibit at Moderna Museet
3/16-17: Would like to see Oslo but if I don't have time/money then a Weekend Cruise to Estonia!(why not?)
Archipelgo Boat Tour, Sky Globe Cafe(Skyview ride), UpplevMer Roof-Walking tour
3/29-30Last weekend in Stockholm = PARTY TIME! wooo!
4/2: Hello Chicago :)
PS- Have faith, my friends! Any remaining gloom in my system will surely be cleansed tomorrow-as I sauna(naked!) and then sit(still naked!) in an ice hole on the FROZEN Lake Källtorpssiön...
(Beautiful! but inexplicably colder than Stockholm)
