International women’s day.

I thought I was going to write something about equality and feminism as it’s everything people talk about in Sweden at the moment. I’m an engineer and work in a company which normally has a fairly equal group of people but in my specific case they don’t (we are the engineering company, as one part of the whole). I work with only men and only few time in my life did I actually have a female manager. I’m constantly fighting for being a women and living an equal life and some people might say that Sweden is far, but from my own perspective we are far off, never be happy until it’s actually equal. I don’t believe an international women’s day should even exist, in my dream world it shouldn’t even be needed. And it’s fine working with only men, but I really miss the company of a women sometimes, where I don’t heave to speak hunting/forestry in the lunch room every single day.
When I grew up I always wanted to be a boy, it sucked being a girl, only having brothers a boy friends. I always lost in every competition, people always made fun of me and it was possible to do anything with me, as I was an extremely little girl with little strengths in comparison. I always wanted to be a boy cause I wanted equality, not being old enough to understand that being a boy is not going to solve this issue.
I would never state myself of being a true feminism, as I have the wrong picture of what type of person this is. Don’t get me wrong, I am a feminist in the sense that I fight for equality, I just would prefer to call it equality. And I think it’s every single persons choice to decide what they want to do with their life’s, me fighting everyday to have a more equal workplace for engineers and being a good role model for next generations, some being home with their children. It’s a choice we all make. However if we don’t do anything about it, if all we women do is to complain about the situation, then I can tell you that nothing will happen. If we don’t fight at work, getting women into boards and executive management, if we don’t fight at home about sharing everything equal then NOTHING is going to happen. Cause if we are not their for next generation of girls/women, to make it easier for them to relate and feel included and showing them that truly equal is possible, then again nothing is going to happen. If we continue in the footsteps of the women before us (who of course did a fantastic job for women in general) there wont be a change. So, protest and be angry if you want to, but I don’t believe it’s the only solution, I think we need to step out of our comfort zone, showing the world what a strong women can bring to the table, by doing. Not talking. Not writing. By doing.
That’s my opinion. Now I’m of to our renovation object on the country side were we are putting in an old brick floor today. And to end this, here is a saying which I think is very clever!

Friday night.

I have so many feelings within, I’m learning so much about myself and I’m so ready to develop and be that really good person that pushes the best out of others and motivates them to make a difference. My motivation is their motivation. I want to give so much more but some people say I already give to much.
On the train on my way home now, after a girls night with pizza and wine. Love discussing with these girls and we are all very alike. Such a good feeling to not be alone in thoughts.
Love from me!

Ps. Look at this and reflect!

Thoughts.

Sometimes I wonder, what is the meaning of life. I wonder what’s the point. Why does it matter.
But things matters and this is one reason why we are moving out into nature. That’s where I have to be for my life to make sense. I’m so sick of cities, of consumerism, of people who don’t care and give up. I’m even a bit sick of fashion and reading blogs with girls in new clothes every day. We don’t need new clothes every day, we need shelter, water, vegetables and family. That’s it. And with all the competence in the world we still don’t act. For the environment, for the future of animals and nature. I read about people who take it to the extreme, living with no bank account and no money. I get jealous. My biggest dream is to be self sustainable and travel around the world taking every day as it comes. I also met a guy once, who started his bike ride in Paris and when we met him in KL he wasn’t finished. I also wished I had patience. To feel like most people on this planet, satisfied. Or maybe they are not satisfied but at least they seem like they are happy where they are.
My biggest problem is that I also want a career, because I want to keep working for a better world. And if you don’t do that you are not a good role model.
I cannot wait to fix up thus little house we bought, by using mainly stuff that’s there already or second hand. One thing I’m buying new is a bathtub, because I love it! And look at those new posters, aren’t they beautiful. We bought them for 3 dollars each at the national history museum in London.

September i Sverige.

Jag har nästan bott i Sverige ett år nu, kom hem i slutet av oktober förra året. Livet har varit upp och ner sen dess men mest upp…
Vi har skaffat världens finaste lilla katt, Springy! Här kommer en bild:

Hejdå Australien.

Så var ännu ett kapitel över i mitt liv. Ett fantastiskt kapitel som vi har att dela för resten av våra liv jag och konrad. En underbar tid har det varit, i det tropiska paradiset! Vi har båda gjort färdigt våra masters in engineering (konrad har 2 månader kvar), vi har båda jobbat hårt och skaffat erfarenhet och hunnit med så mkt kul! Vi har varit på campingturer, hängt i Melbourne, kört runt Tasmanien, vi har gift oss 2 gånger och köpt världens finaste bil som vi nu måste sälja. Vi har bott på 3 olika ställen, alla med sina ups and downs. Vi har ägt 3 bilar och haft pappa, Caroline och konrads familj på besök! Nu kommer Tomas precis innan jag åker hem, vi får lite mer än 2 veckor att umgås, åka till havet och njua av livet. Innan allvaret börjar. Ska bli spännande!
Här kommer lite bilder från sista tiden!

Hade en helt fantastisk födelsedag, med vänner, middagar, shopping och en liten resa norrut med min älskling!
Pussokram! Ses snart!

Måndag.

Idag har jag inte gjort mycket. Men helgen var desto fullare!
I fredags hade vi en hög vänner över på pizza. Jag hade en intervju så jag var lite trött efter stressen. Men jättemysig kväll! På lördagen körde jag ner till Christina, Josefine, lovisa och Alice i Surfers Paradise! De är en svensk familj som alla jobbar på ikea. De skulle o äta på svensk pizzeria och jag fick följa med! Så sjukt gott med pizza oxfile o bearnaise sås! Åh. Sen såg vi på solsidan hela natten! Sov över o körde tillbaka på söndag morgon. På söndagen hade vi grillning med Konrads jobb. Jättegott! O vi spelade kubb!
Nu ska jag laga lite mat inför veckan o fixa!
Här kommer några fler bilder från lägenheten!
