july 16 - jovana transfail

10:47am
 
finally in europe. per usual, there's no such thing as "convenient" travelling for me. either it's on me where i forget crucial documents, oversleep, bring too much stuff or just fall over my self while entering the airport. or, it's on the airline: the flight is delayed, breaks down, the luggage is delayed or someone misses the flight so they have to unpack the entire thing to find their specific bags.
 
now, this time: i forgot my swedish sim-card, while united airlines was 2 hours delayed because someone who had checked their luggage missed the boarding. following the trend of this trip, the luggage was delayed as well, leaving "little" me with an expired expensive train ticket and with one option: to wait for the next train and amuse myself in the country of porridge-speak, denmark, for three hours.
 
obviously, my first instinct is to blog. at least it used to be, now it's just a time-wasting tool.
 
travelling has to be one of the most life-appreciating experiences in life. that's all i have to say. so many people are as bitter as lime walking between the aisles, instead of being appreciative and happy that they even have the means and possibility to travel. i also looove speaking english and listening to people speak about me in swedish and, when they least expect it, carry on the conversation in swedish, to see their shocked facial expressions. it's in moments like these that being trilingual rockz.
 
ok, i'm done babbling. talk to you on the other side. 
t-2 hours until my train leaves.

july 6 - why not?

3:37am

long day with insurance, guarantors, work, international stuff, computer issues, times square, coffees, sweat, and lavo.

the beauty of new york - there's never nothing to do and that's what makes it fun. if you're bored, you chose being bored. it's as simple as that :) after a long day of dealing with stuff and catching up with people, linda and i decided to go out. it was only a one hour ordeal. just wasn't feeling it tonight.

detox starts tonight. it's gonna be an interesting week, but now - sleep and some more sweat.

xx,
jov

july 4 - independent drinkers day

1:15am

it's late night in new york and i don't think i've ever wished for rain as much as i do now. this i say while i try killing a bug on my keyboard, as i'm typing. great success? side note: i think i should marry borat.

anyways, my first fourth of july in the us in four years and you know what that means, because i sure as hell don't. starting the day off with a well-needed powerwalk/run around the reservoir. this girl has got a wedding to attend (actually, two).

lindi and i are having a blast though, nyc in summertime is amazingly (sticky) fun! time for me to work, shower and mentally prepare for all that fourth of july is.

xx,
jov

no idea
 

july 3 - bli vuxen i usa

1:50am
 
oops, nytt blogg.se - äntligen? fortfarande frestande att byta till blogspot. för lat nu, dock.

när man jobbar för ett startup företag uppstår massa om och men, hur och när, etc. MEN det är chansen att vara en av de få att se ett företag växa from scratch. chansen att titta tillbaka, tufft klappa sig själv på axeln och säga "fan, jag är ganska grym." det är chansen att vara del av något stort, att våga ha åsikter, och jobba hårdare än någonsin.

efter examen i sverige är det okej att resa runt, att ha kul, att leva livet fullt ut den där sista sommaren eller året innan man ska spendera hela sitt liv i ett kontor eller något liknande. om man inte får jobb i usa efter examen är det skamligt, inkompetent, och (som internationell) olagligt att stanna kvar i landet. därför mina vänner, jobbar jag hårt som bara den för att förverkliga mina drömmar och ge tillbaka allt och lite till till mina föräldrar som allt för ofta får ett "hej pappa, jag är pank" samtal från "lilla" mig.

att dessutom behöva jobba andra jobb, planera en möhippa, hitta klänningar, leta lägenhet, sightseea med världens bästa linda, och dessutom leva sommarlivet i nyc (jag vet, låter riktigt jobbigt..) funkar inte riktigt. prioriteringar och disciplin - det är vad som ska ta mig igenom den här sommaren.

skaka nu inte på huvudet och påstå att jag gnäller. det faktum att jag sitter här med en kopp kaffe klockan 2 på morgonen och plöjer igenom jobb när jag vet att jag ska upp om ca 6 timmar, visar på annat.

so long,
jov
