Bokskogen – Beech Forest

So, (most boring way ever to start, think It’s even kinda illegal… In typing-world that is) but – (ok I know, also boring). Anyhow… (naah, I don’t like that), however (that’s it! I feel like wearing a moustache!), I’ve been having quite a lot to do the past days – I’ll tell you!

Monday, I went to the doctor. She was Finnish and very rude (I think there’s nice Finnish people but it seems like they’re hiding). The nurse who took the blood sample was really bad at it. First she tried my left arm, twisting around the needle trying to poke the vessel. It didn’t work and eventually she gave up and tried my right hand instead. Now I’ve got a big bruise on my left arm AND SHE’S GOT… (some of) MY BLOOD!!! Vampire…

Tuesday, was exhausting. I went to ‘bokskogen’ (beech forest) together with the people in my class, BY BIKE. The fastest way to the forest is about 16 km , but we had to go on smaller paths and stuff. We at least traveled 40 km, that much I know. I’ve been biking over 70 kilometres some days, but then – there weren’t as much wind.. and HILLS!!! That combination folks, that combination…

This does NOT look like Sweden, but it is Sweden

Wednesday, (which was yesterday), I did two out of four parts of the Swedish national exam in English. Reading and Listening, I’ve already done the writing-part, so what’s left is Speaking. It makes me a little nervous, since I know that I speak a bit slurred when I’m under pressure, since I’m nervous and I am NERVOUS!!! Eehh… Vicious cycle. What I can do about that is; run. So I did yesterday – 35 minutes constantly running took me 6,3 kilometres away. ūüôā

It had just stopped raining, the air was fresh and the sun started to crawl out of the clouds…

Thursday, which is today (for me at least), means homework and rest. Homework since… since… (ok I don’t know exactly why, I just do it) and rest, because of tomorrow.

Friday, which is tomorrow, I’ll run five kilometres (PE) in school. It’s an annual thing we do every spring but this time will be my last. I’ve decreased my time markedly since the first time and… my teacher uses me as an example when speaking about improving ones condition (I’m proud!). Therefore (and because I hate loosing, it would be a loss to not get a better result) I have to get a better time tomorrow!

Think that’s all ;P

Sunny soon? (Bit of a “note to self”)

I have a few things to deal with, before things can be “sunny”. I am not feeling all too very well, I’m tired most of the time. People have suggested that I’m eating too little – but if anything, I’m eating normal amounts of food – sometimes even too much. I ate a WHOLE pizza yesterday!** My hair is also not good, every time I brush it, some comes off**. It is not as I have bare spots or anything, but it feels thinner than before. And I have dandruff… so damn annoying! It is actually acting so stupid.. I have had my hair in a ponytail for at least half a year now. And then there is my knee… and a verruca¬†(sounds better than wart) on my left foot – ugh! I feel so damn.. old? Like a witch? Something like that… I have to do something about these things…

  • Both the tiredness and thingy with my hair can be a lack of vitamin B (Especially B5). Even though I eat vegetables, fish, and everything – I can still have a lack of it. You never know since the body is such a complex machinery, vitamin deficiency can have MANY strange symptoms. Since vitamin B (at least B6 or B5) is water-soluble* and not fat soluble*, I might as well eat some extra – since I can’t get too much of it. Had some “bj√§st”-pills lying around, which is.. yeast and some other substances (riboflavin, folic acid etc.). I also found a box of “H√•rkontroll” which is supposed to be good for your hair and nails, these contain some extra minerals. The only bad thing is that they both contain vitamin B3 which I shouldn’t overdose – but we’ll see…
  • Since the school nurse told me, I’ll go to the doctor soon and find out what’s wrong with my hair…
  • When I’m there I will ask them about my knee as well. Until then, all I can do is.. continue my limping… and being enormously irritated since I can’t exercise.
  • And, I will go downstairs now – to take a pumice stone and rasp that ‘verruca’ as we called it…

* I’d say this is the basics about vitamins – if it is water-soluble you can hardly overdose it since the abundance will come out together with other water (like… wee-wee). But if a vitamin is fat soluble, it can be stored in your fat tissue and the amounts of it will only increase (if you are overdosing).

** I think I’ll have to explain, that I’m not anorexic. I am not starving myself or anything – because that often leads to vitamin deficiency and alopecia (and tiredness of course).
