Internal Clocks, Part II

Monday, 30 May, 2011

Back in March of this year, I wrote about my internal clock that felt awry. I was complaining that in my heart, mind and feet, basically my body telling me it was time to move to a new state or country.

Did I predict it or what? We’re doing a move to Sweden for six months, providing the biggest concerns of mine are taken care of – a) My husband’s status to apply for citizenship is not jeopardized and b) they take care of housing.

We’ll be living in Stockholm. It ain’t cheap. I know it’s not. Mr Carinae (aka @kaadian on Twitter) joked that I need to get used to Subway sandwiches and McDonald’s as a classy and fancy dinner. *cries*

I have a travel blog that I have to incorporate here. I started it when we moved to India. I do have other pieces and parts of my travels and I have to get it all together. Bleh. Another thing to add to my to do list. Never, all those years ago, when I was a starry eyed graduate from high school and then college, did I ever imagine I’d travel and live in places that people only read about or watch on tv. I’m lucky. I know I am. I don’t take it for granted.

On that note…the rest of this week will be dedicated to Swedish brand nail polishes – Makeup Store and Depend.

    Oooh, don’t miss out on Lumene (finnish brand) or IsaDora (Swedish brand) or Viva La Diva (Swedish brand) or Face Sthlm (also a Swedish brand). I heard rumours about a new Swedish brand too, called Pure or something like that. The concept is very similiar to MakeUpStore, I’m sure you’ll see it around. And yes, Stockholm is exactly as expensive as Mr Carinae jokes.
    But! It’s absolutely lovely and the shopping is amazing. I come from Sweden originally, but I’ve lived in shanghai and now I live in Amsterdam. Cool to hear you’re moving to my home town! 🙂
