Running out of steam

I'm kind of fed up with working at the moment and that is just after a week of it, I still feel fatigue from my illness and I'm depressed. I don't have much energy or reason to get dressed up and do my hair and make-up either so I feel awfuly ugly, which today was boosted by the fact that the Vice interview we did at the fleemarket was published and turned out to be little more than an excuse to ridicule the style and people who wear it. The comment section is a hailstorm of how fat and barfingly ugly we all are. I know you shouldn't care but I would rather not read or hear it so I wish I wouldn't have wasted my time with that journalist. Leave it to me to be naive enough to think there was some sort of genuine interest and not just for freak show value.

First part of the birthday haul

This is one of the most stunning presents I have ever received and it was more than one year in the making.

Hair drying the hard drive

During one of many sick nights of late I of course managed to do, what my mom always tells me not to do, and tip over one of my waterbottles on top of my laptop. It was down for a couple of days but some work with the hair dryer and it will atleast get me online for a couple of houers even though the screen is kind of busted looking. Time to get a new, cute laptop I think!

As far as the illness goes by the way, for whoever might be interested, I'm not realy better but I can independently take in liquids again even though my throat is so puffed up it kills to swallow. I hope I will be better by next weekend atleast because after that I'm suppose to go to Germany and I can't realy see how I would be able to do that if I can't even eat.

So I went to the doctor today to find out what's wrong and it turns out I got glandular fever, or kissing disease, wich really is just all around bad news. I will likley remain sick for another week and fatigue can last for several months. And of course, as per usual with me when I get sick, there is nothing to do but to wait it out.

Turning twentyone and racialy ambiguous

I'm closing in on what is soon to be my third week of feeling under the weather, I had sort of an ambition to get better before my birthday but of course, like all plans of mice and men, it didn't work out. Today when I woke up I found that I can add yet another weird symptom to this unidentifyed illness, my eyelids have puffed up! Just the upper ones, towards the bridge of my nose, giving a distinctly asian look to my eyes. My brother and his wife has alredy made the rather predicteble "turning Japanes" joke.
I will postpone my celebrations untill I feel somewhat better but I'm really thankfull to all of you for your kind congratulations and I'm so pleased with this years gifts! They are some of the best ones ever so far and without giving away too much, they all follow one of my favourite themes!
Stay tuned, all of them will be posted in due time!

Overeating at the market

I went to the market in Leksand with my mother today, I haven't been there in a long time but I got a lovley little feel of festival time in Japan with all the food stands. Sure there was no takoyaki or okonomiyaki but the mood was right so I ate a lot! Delicious belgian waffles, roasted almonds, deep fried camembert with cloudberry jam and my favourite; langos! A sort of hungarian deepfried pancake painted with garlic butter and served with souer cream and raw, chopped onions.
For dinner I will just make a mixed melon fruit salad, I'm too stuffed for anything else.

Decision making

I think I will go to the hairdresser before the week is out, if for nothing else I need to get rid of my darker roots before my birthday, but I'm contemplating what to do with my bangs. Keep them straight for a more dollish look, or let them grow and sweep them aside for a cute look?
I know the straight bang always work, but it was a long time since I had some change in my hair and it feels like a new look might be fun.
