It's a myth that Norrlanders are quiet people, in fact they both talk and scream. Everyone except Isa and Jenny, but Isa is shy besides liking pearls and disco-lights. Jenny is from america and doesn't speak any swedish.
Other major differences is that:
- People actually go to the mall to watch the people from Idol perform
- They just care about the most basic rules of driving
- It's warmer than in Stockholm
- People don't hug when they meet friends and family
On a personal level 2008 was a good year for me. Containing lots of personal trials and tribulations, as well as clarity and changes for the better. Resigning, getting my ass back to school, and - although everyone speaks of the economical crisis, I'm full of optimism.
As this year's about to come to an end I thought I'd wrap up the best parts of 2008, on a bigger level.
And on that note and from the bottom of my heart I wish everyone a great 2009
