Here and there friends would ask me how come all my posts are so positive. They wonder if I have any bad days or issues living way up north all by myself. Well one of the reasons I mostly write about the positive side of life is that I think there is too much negativity out there already, too much bad news and on the other hand I’m also not the kind of person that complains a lot or enjoys washing it’s dirty laundry in front of people:) But here it is. The one and only “let it all out” post:) Continue reading “Ups and downs”
Back to Sweden, back to work, back to being alone, back to Skype beer dates, back to hugging trees and looking forward to letters stuck to the window. The summer was phenomenal. I experienced so many new things, met old and new friends and most of all I really enjoyed life, people, nature and every second of every given day. It gave me a chance to be a tourist in my home town, notice the little things and fall in love with it all over again. Travelling really does broaden your horizons but at the same time you get a deeper appreciation for “home”:) Continue reading “I’m back…”
Wow! What a softball season! In January I packed my bags and moved way up north to start working at a softball academy in Sweden. A dream come true:) Shortly after I also joined a local softball team that managed to win both national (indoor&outdoor) titles in 2017.
It has been an interesting softball season to say the least:) Full of ups and downs, triumphs, falls and health issues. The later have forced me to work on other aspects of the game and help out my teams in any way I could. By coaching, helping with practices, mental game, cheering, guiding and team building. It has been a great learning experience that has showed me how much can accomplished if we aspire to help each other grow and what true leadership is all about. Continue reading “What a season!”
Wow, what an amazing birthday and weekend! So thankful for all the amazing people in my life and especially for my friends back home that make me miss Slovenia so much more:) Man, I got a lot of presents but the biggest gift is having all of them to goof around, have a nice cold beer with, play softball, enjoy a conversation (sometimes heated), go skinny dipping, dance the night away and simply enjoy life:) There’s not a lot of pictures…guess we were too busy living:)
Interesting observation: In Sweden there’s lots of dogs but hardly any barking. I don’t know when was the last time I heard a good old bark. I thought I heard one the other day but it turned out it was coming from the background of my Skype conversation with somebody back home:) I miss that sound, I miss having a choir of dogs keep me company as I walk down the street. Amazing how you can miss the little things you hardly notice back home:)
I really thought I was going to die yesterday or at least end up with broken bones and lots of cuts and bruises. I was about to take the bus to Falun and pick up my Swedish ID, which is kind of a big deal so I was pretty excited about that. Despite the excitement I was running late, as always. Seven minutes till departure of the bus and I was still at home trying to buy the ticket online since it’s much cheaper. Continue reading “Near death experince, ID and sports museum…”
