A weekend that had a little bit of everything

On the bed getting ready to sleep now. Felt like this weekend passed by in a flash. But that’s what it’s like when you’re having a good time. I want to get some good sleep in tonight since I’ve decided to always start the week rested. Feels so much better than being a zombie.

Had dinner with mom and dad on Friday and fell asleep real early. Actually missed the soccer final that the gals sadly lost. They deserved to win but a silver medal is still pretty darn impressive!

On Saturday I spent a few hours fiddling around with my HTPC. I’ve stuck GTX 1080 in that computer (probably already mentioned that) but since it can’t really take advantage of it I wanted to see what could be gained from overclocking the CPU. Quite a lot actually. Went from 7500 Fire Strike score (3DMark) to nearly 9000. The FPS stays more solid in games now than it did before. Took the CPU from 3.6GHz to 4.4GHz.

Then I got a call from Daniel, the brother of a close friend, who wanted to go for a mountain bike ride. He lives outside the city and his daughter had a birthday party in town. So he brought his bike along and we went to try out the new trails. Lots of fun but I realize that I’ve become scared of riding too technical sections. I’ve had some crashes and my confidence has taken a toll. I don’t really enjoy riding that kind of terrain anymore which is a real shame. About the only sad part about this weekend, haha.

Later I hung out with Elin B. who had cooked dinner for me. So good! I salute you! We watched the women’s mountain bike cross country final where Jenny Rissveds won gold. You’re awesome! Then we watched Bad Neighbors 2 which was hilarious. Haha. Not quite as good as the first one but still hilarious. When Zac Efron runs in the rain feeling betrayed by his friends, All by myself playing in the background. So funny. Recommended! Then we managed to squeeze in the penalty kicks drama between Brazil and Germany as well. Happy they managed to win gold given how it went down two years ago between the same countries.

Today I’ve been playing some Doom (come get some!), visited granny in BorĂ¥s and then hung out with Elin T. It’s a shame we don’t live closer since I really enjoy talking to her and we share the interest for movies and TV shows. We went to the movie theatre to see Nerve. I’ve heard about it from the actress Emma Roberts who has been posting about it on her Instagram. It dealt with social media, the hysteria for attention, followers, watchers, viewers or what not. Also it dealt with how the mob can start to behave. The rage. The hate. But it was also very funny from time to time. I preferred the first half of the movie. It was interesting and exciting!

Now I’m gonna make myself some sandwiches, have some Oatly chocolate drink and watch 7 myths about movement. Then I’m gonna hug the pillow. Sweet dreams y’all!

So very, very tired

Utterly drained of energy right now. But feeling lots and lots better than I did Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Thankfully! I’ve had a lovely evening with Hannah. Eating all kinds of bad and started to watch Orange is the new black. Eager to watch more since it seems like a fun show with interesting characters. I love character dramas really. Once you’re into it you’re like friends and you just want more and more. I’ve not had that since Mad Men (maybe Penny Dreadful) so hopefully this will be something good.

I’ve had to juggle quite a few things at work lately that I’m not used to do so that has taken a toll on my energy levels. It’s working but I feel like I’m stretched out a bit too thin. Glad it’s appreciated though but I hope that it works out more efficiently eventually. This is a bit too unstructured and problematic for my taste.

I’ve also had somewhat of a falling out with a friend. Or not sure what it is really, and I hope we can sort it out eventually, but it’s been hard on me since I don’t like to not know what’s going on. Not entirely sure what I’ve done wrong but it hurts me to see this person feel bad and hurt, especially if I suspect that I’ve done something. But I’ve tried my best to reach out and show that I’ve had no ill intentions and that I’m here to support and that’s about all I can do I guess. Now I have to protect myself too. Otherwise I’m scared of falling back into the pit I was a year back. Had lots of support from friends though and that means the world. I would probably punish myself even harder without them there to say that “You’re too nice” and “No, you’ve done nothing wrong Michael! You’ve only ever been supportive!”. So hopefully I can lay my worry and uneasiness to rest now. Wishing my friend all the best though! I know you’re strong and you’ll get through this ♥

We did have a great Friday evening though. Spent it at Restaurant Kallbadhuset, spending possibly too much money but having lots of laughs and a hell of a good time. Why don’t we do this more often?

Now I better get some sleep because I was a wreck today. Don’t wanna end up like that tomorrow. Sleep tight buddies~

In the mood for some shopping

Feeling good as of late although it’s quite delicate to be honest. It goes up and down. But the weather sure helps in keeping your spirits high. Spring is coming. And isn’t it lovely? Also I have so many good things to look forward to. On Friday I’m visiting Lennart & Henriette. Their daughter turned three today, so I bought her some presents that I’m gonna hand over. Also I got a few friends together for next Friday. Going to Kallbadhuset to eat good food and drink some good beer.

Want to do some shopping as well. Sometimes I just get into that mood where I feel that it will be fun to spend some money. And sometimes several months goes by without that very urge. In any case now I wanna buy some new shoes, a new spring jacket and a couple of jeans. Aigul offered to tag along and help me out with selecting some nice ones and also maybe going to the theatre. Would be fun!

But now it’s really, really late and I have to catch some sleep. It has been some tough days lately with lots of work. Thankfully I’m not sick anymore so I can exercise which makes you feel energized and well. Anyways, sleep tight fellow babies~

Can’t be bothered with words

Uhm yeah. Every evening a reminder that I got a gnarly little dagger in my gut. Sucking out my energy and my courage. These cursed feelings. But hey, I got Witcher 3 and blueberry pie. And my foot is OK again so I can exercise freely. ‘Tis not so bad. Oh and yeah, got reminded again this weekend that I shouldn’t hang out with people who take more energy than they give. Starting to think that there are more of those out there than the other kind. Sigh. So yeah. Bye and all….
