Until then… Bye Dane.

I let a friendship go today. Not just any friendship, a best-friendship. Something I've been mulling over for a while now, and while I was sitting in church this morning; likely listening to a very similar sermon to what he'd be listening to, I knew I just needed to rip the bandage off and get… Continue reading Until then… Bye Dane.

The Story of: A Full Force Whirlwind of Terrifying ClusterF**K

I summarized my dealings with David in one main sentence "A Full force whirlwind of terrifying clusterfuck," in my last post. Though I've written parts of the story here and there on the blog and my older readers pretty much know the details, I figured I would rehash the story a little in these last… Continue reading The Story of: A Full Force Whirlwind of Terrifying ClusterF**K

The feels… They hurt: Stockholm

I have a note to myself that indicates I should remember that I wanted to write about that time a car came through a window of an establishment, narrowly missing me - as my next blog post returning from Reblogging Rae for the past two weeks. Instead, it seems crass at the moment to write… Continue reading The feels… They hurt: Stockholm

Reblogging Emma: Svea’s Summer House in Sandhamn

Post #7 for my recycled posts series - this one is from March 2015. All new pictures added 🙂 Summertime in Sweden meant that the sun wouldn’t set, the weather would warm just enough to warrant swimming and apparel of tube tops and shorts… but rarely did it get too hot. Summertime also meant that… Continue reading Reblogging Emma: Svea’s Summer House in Sandhamn

Reblogging Emma: Anneke and Heather

Post #4 of my flashback/recycled posts - this one is from February 2015 - one of the very first memories I posted. “It’s your turn to sit in the back, Emma.” “Only if you put the top up!” I said as I climbed into the back of Heather’s convertible. It was the middle of Swedish… Continue reading Reblogging Emma: Anneke and Heather

Reblogging Emma: Word F**kery

Post #2 for my recycling of my content series. This one is from June 2015... It contains some additional content. I don’t know if it’s the insomnia I’ve had over the past few days, or simply the fact that I’ve been looking at and listening to other languages a lot this weekend. I have been… Continue reading Reblogging Emma: Word F**kery

“We are the Loudest Tooth Fairy”

I have gleaned permission from Dane to share with you a text conversation we had around midnight last night. I thought perhaps you guys would find it as amusing as I did. I'm tempted to just post screenshots with his real name blotted out... but that smacks of cheating on a writing blog... LOL Though… Continue reading “We are the Loudest Tooth Fairy”

Cycle of abuse and Maraschino Cherries

In keeping with the themes this week, I told a friend that I planned to write about another friend I lost touch with and hoped one day to find again just like Vlad. This girl; however, was much closer to me - a Best Friend. Before I sat to write this, I decided to do… Continue reading Cycle of abuse and Maraschino Cherries

The Grand Scheme of Things

In a few weeks I turn 34. Logically I know that is not all that old.... But maybe it's Karma because I called Justin "old" when he turned 34 yesterday - same as Dane when he turned 34 in October. But now... Siiiiggghhh... I'm starting to feel old myself. Really, it's not so much a… Continue reading The Grand Scheme of Things

Treasures; or a second Christmas

I received my storage delivery yesterday as you will have noticed from my gleeful outburst last night. I have taken mondo amounts of pictures to share with you all so I think I'm going to have to break it into at least two posts. Today I will start with stuff to do with friends/me as… Continue reading Treasures; or a second Christmas

‘Golden Age of Movies’ or Emma’s fave films over the years

Featured image from IMDb The other night, my husband brought me home a three disc set of classic musicals - it included West Side… Continue reading ‘Golden Age of Movies’ or Emma’s fave films over the years

Touché, Bitch

Maja called me the devil the other day. I wasn't even being particularly naughty this time... Okay, well... Maybe I was... to a degree. I was telling her about a guy that has quickly become my new crush. She stated that she used to believe that she was the one in our group that was… Continue reading Touché, Bitch

Volbeat

You guys... I swear I've been trying to write something for at least an hour... But...Youtube. Goddammit, youtube! I was drawing a blank on what to write and was playing around on the net,as you do, when I suddenly remembered Svea suggested last week that I needed to check out "Volbeat." A Danish rock band… Continue reading Volbeat

Well, Hello Sailor

The problem with asking your best friends for ideas for your blog is that they will invariably bring up that they still laugh when you write BJJ - for it's resemblance to the acronym "BJ" - and then suggest that that you write something vulgar. Well, that's my best friends for you anyway. So, no,… Continue reading Well, Hello Sailor

Absolut Kurant

This memory is fuzzy - as the title and featured image may suggest - but I don't think that's really the reason this memory sits far back in my mind... The details of which refuse to come forward fully. I've had flashes of memory regarding this night a few times over the past few years,… Continue reading Absolut Kurant

F*ck me, I’d be lying

The day was chilly, but hardly cold. At least not in the sense that we had to wear actual jackets - but it's all relative, I guess. Swedish autumn warranted our turtle neck sweaters; mine being the rusty orange one I had bought in Copenhagen, and Maja's was striped with blues and browns. As always,… Continue reading F*ck me, I’d be lying

A Disappointing Revelation ft. MAJA ;)

Maja and I had a good chat last night – talking about a range of things for nearly two hours, so I can’t relay the whole conversation. At least, not all together at the moment, haha. But one thing we talked about reminded me of some events during High School I thought I’d tell you… Continue reading A Disappointing Revelation ft. MAJA 😉

Taylor Swift Gets Me : Reprise

While we’re on the topic of Taylor Swift, I went back and perused my posts from February 2015 – when I started this blog – and came across one of the first posts I had written that was also a I-have-a-girl-crush-on-Taylor kind of post. What I had done is compiled and mashed up several of… Continue reading Taylor Swift Gets Me : Reprise
