What I have been up to

The last few months went by in a rush and I haven't exactly been active on here. So what have I been doing in the meantime? Well mostly I have worked. As some of you may have read on instagram, I found a job as primary school teacher at a nearby school. It was set…

One year in Sweden

As some of you might already have seen on Instagram, I recently (on the 28th of december 2019) had my one year anniversary in Sweden! It was an incredible year. I learned an incredible lot about myself. And while I made immense progress in my cultural understanding, professional self, language skills and social skills in…

Little life update

I know I haven't posted anything again in a while, so I thought I would write a little update again before writing more posts going into details and containing more photos! 🙂 HEALTH - I am counting 3 colds so far and 1 stomach flu very recently. I hope I will be less affected by…

Constantly I felt like I had to hand in more than what was requested and the whole ordeal just kept getting…

Walk in the woods
