Sweden
I'm a guy from Sweden who loves life and matte paper with lots of colours and a warm soft blanket on an autumn morning or a summer night, moments of bliss, and vegetables and music and sunshine on a rainy day

My art varies a lot I guess. I want to capture and reflect my feelings of a moment. Depth in details. I'm learning about myself through art but also from being with other people. I love words and languages but I do not always like to speak. I also listen. To people and to the sound of the forest. I love spending a lot of time in nature and it's comforting beauty. I also like to watch the city and it's movement and enjoy moving along to it in my own rhythm

I try my very best to be a good friend and an honest person both to myself and towards others and highly value these traits in other people too. I try to engage in expressing my feelings and thoughts to the best of my ability and I try to be a good listener. People who have a hostile attitude can make me angry and sometimes I get stressed up over that kind of behaviour. If I am relaxed in myself and my environment I can be playful and creative. I don't want to grow up although I think I'll have to some day.. although secretly.. I will always be a playful little kid on the inside ^^

Hiya!

I'm pleased to say it has been a most wonderful week! I have given myself time away from school. It's been truly wonderful. I have been by myself most of the time. Reading, listening to the radio, cooking and taking care of myself. My stress has almost fully passed and the headaches have completely disappeared with that, and I'm much calmer now which is something I'll be holding onto. I've also been outside walking, taking pictures, and making new acquaintances.

Life has been good, and everything has been very peaceful for a week. I have only missed one thing because of this - in maths, my classmates have learned how to calculate kägelsnitt, or a conic section (if they went to class). I am totally fine with not knowing this yet, and will catch up on it later. The important thing is that I'm okay and that I have the energy to prepare for exams which are due in the very end of this month.

Today I gave away a pair of shoes to a homeless person. I got a notice through a newly made acquaintance (tell you more about that later) about an organisation that was shoe-collecting for the homeless, and I had a pair that I decided I probably wouldn't ever use  again.. so I went into central town today and met up with these guys who gave me a cup of coffee and a lot of hugs in return, and we had a happy time together. We gave away shoes to people in need and it was good, everyone was happy both to give shoes and to receive them. I don't want to get all political about it right now but this is a very important cause for me as a lot of the time these persons seem to fall out of the societal periphery and I think that is pure shit. I have myself almost been in the same situation a few years back and I know how stressful it can be, being faced with landing a park-bench life. Some people say we shouldn't help.. for different reasons.. I say helping them builds a good foundation for making sure that nobody has to be homeless, at least not for too long. Most of these people if not all of them were actually looking for work, but they seldomly have a chance to find one or let alone keep one because of the situation they are currently in. So helping them better get organised was great.

I actually met one person after we wrapped up the shoe-scapade who says he has his home in the woods by choice, because he better likes it there. He was a Hungarian who had moved here to Sweden since of two years, and I kind of believe him. He was sincere about it. I bought us some food and we ate together over a conversation on marxism-socialism, government transparency and human rights. We have now exchanged e-mails, as this is his way of communication. When I think about it, the next time we meet I'm going to offer him to shower at my place. He was cool, like a rebel who had fled his country after 20 years of fighting and now lives in the woods cool. He also has a blog.

So a few new acquaintances and yeah, I painted this week too ^^ Will upload the results tomorrow or so!

That's it for now.. Oh yeah for two days now I've been looking for a certain pencil. After having been to what I think is every pencil-dealer in town, I've had the matter delegated to my dear mother who lives in a town slightly larger than me. With more stores. I hope she has a lot of spare time, or good batteries in her phone. Well, time to wrap it and sleep :)

do yourself good
and others too ♥
