The package arrived on a Monday. At some point during the afternoon, someone had left it outside our door. It had been raining all week, but around noon the sun had come out, so when I found it when I got home from work it was dry. It was a normal cardboard box roughly around the size of a shoe box, with brown strings wrapped around it securing the lid firmly in place. Continue reading

Just over a year ago, I decided to kick my scholastic career into gear, and that meant I needed to fix my old grades from high school. To do that I applied to Vindelns folkhögskola. Admittedly, the first thing that attracted me was the schedule; it matched perfectly with the times we had Zach at kindergarten. It soon became so much more to me than just convenience. In little more than a week, I’ll leave the place that so insanely quickly felt like home to me, to move on to new grounds and new challenges, and I admit that it is with a heavy heart that I will take my leave.

Like a gum stuck to a bicycle wheel, summer keeps coming back after a full revolution of the seasons. While I do enjoy parts of the summer, some things I just can’t really deal with – especially during the first few weeks.

Shrugging, I looked around the room I was now standing in. It was obviously grandma’s attic, but it looked like nobody had been up here for years and years. Dust covered all of the floor, and cobwebs clung to the old couch standing by the wall. All across the sides of the room, old things were crammed in along the walls. A bust of some old general or something right next to the couch… a few rolled-up carpets, a model ship that didn’t have any sails but instead was full of spiderwebs. Continue reading

The perfect moment, English

The fly that keeps buzzing around my face is the only thing that isn’t perfect right now. Or… maybe the fly is what makes the moment perfect. The minor annoyance of waving it away just make the contrast to all the sweetness surrounding me all that much stronger. Continue reading
