It's true. When there is a fashion here in Sweden everyone follows, including myself.
Everyone dresses the same. It's cute but..hmm---Where is the individuality?
I had a VERY long day at work, listening to Swedes talk to me too fast when I asked them to speak slower for me.....long lines, and me standing in front of the hot stove to cook for them. I felt like my back would break. I didn't have anyone to help me in the kitchen today either.........That's thanks to my boss.
I won't say anymore. Except I got a box of jelly beans for free for my hard work today instead of the lunch break I should of gotten..Oh wait, thats right. I never get a lunch break..ever, not even after 10,5 hours like today.
Anywho..... There was a demonstration today in central so all the spårvagns got re-directed. Lucky me. Actually I didn't care. I just sat on the damn thing until I had to switch to another one, last minute.
I think swedes are cool though. These girls I work with are something else. And then I look at all the others that are around me everyday in the city. They are a funny bunch, very stylish and sometimes to the extreme. Right now the 80's are whats in. I can't complain. They threw in a dash of the 50's and 60's in with the styling...now I hear the 90's might be making a comeback. I don't give a shit, I am sticking with the clothes I bought because I love them and wouldn't trade them for the world.
As for how I look when I am at home in the US? Like a foreigner in my own country. I actually managed to try and keep it neutral when I flew home 2 months ago...was kinda hard though.
Tid för mina läxor....Jag måste studera mer svenska, oj oj oj !!!!!!
