Always say no to strangers.

I just watched a really cute video of a young asian girl being taught to always say no to strangers if they ask her if she wants cookies and things like that. Really cute video (link below) but it also made me think about how often this actually happens. I'm not sure how many kids this happens to but i can assure you it's happened to me, my brothers and my sister a few times when we were kids..

I remember when i was a little girl (can't have been older than 6) and we lived in a small town in Sweden, people would absolutely call this a safe place for your kids to play outside.. and I was asked to go to the neighbours and get my brother because the dinner was ready. This was about 25m away. An old man starts shouting me from about 50m away and i stop because he told me to.. Then when he is closer he asks me if i want sweets.. just like that.. I said no, like i had always been told.. and he got angry with me.. and i ofcourse got a little scared but didnt really dare to just run off.. then he asked me if i wanted 5kr (about 50p) and I said yes.. He gave me my 5kr and i started crying because i was scared and i knew i wasnt allowed to take things from strangers. He then got really angry with me and asked my what i was crying for.. I then said "I want to go home!" and then ran back into my house.. I told my dad, the old man was long gone and my dad had to go get my brother, and i was never asked to do that again..

This is one of many stories i have like this..

My younger brother who now is 17 used to always be asked ifhe could show people the way to ifferent places when he was younger.. As in "I dont know how to get to the city centre, why dont you jump in and show me.." he thankfully always said no.. who would have known what would have happened if he didnt..

Anyway, i think i was quite bad like this when i was younger because first of all i said yes to the 5kr.. and i also accepter rides with strangers twice. One was a really old man (and i had seen his wife as well so wasnt very worried as i had just fainted outside.. peados was the last thing on my mind).. Thankfully he was just a really nice old man offering me a ride when i couldnt get home on my own..

The other time was when we had just moved to a new place and i got lost, went into the petrol station and borrowed a phone and a man offered to drive me home. Why did i say yes to that? Anyway, i did and he was also just a nice guy helping out.. but that was just luck, i could have been kidnapped and raped.. who knows..

I'm sure women do things like this to, not just men but it's always been men approaching me with sweets and other things. How can this be so normal? Like it happens to everyone? How many sick people are there really out there..

The worst thing (like this) thats ever happened to me was when i was about 12 and i was on the bus home with one of my friends. A guy walks on the bus, clearly not sober.. and he sits down one seat infront of us but on the other side so he can look at ut.. and he gets his dick out.. yeap.. ha actually did.. and start.. you know.. mhm.. Told my mum when i got home and she rang the police, you know what happens then? I had to look at 5 photots (all 20years old to make it more fair or something.. the police told me) and i must have picked the wrong one because i never heard anything after that.. so i'm guessing he's still out there looking at poor little girls on busses with his dingdong out..

Anyway, we clearly cant't do much about the sickos out there in the world, but wveryone with kids or young brothers/sisters should be really REALLY clear to make sure they always say NO to strangers, men or women. It might just be someone trying to be nice.. but it might not be! Always say no to strangers kids!

10 things you didnt know about me

I feel like i have been posting a lot of negative things here lately so it's time for a change. :) Here we go!

- I always wear socks (except for in the shower/bath).
- I absolutely hate talking about money.
- I constantly count calories and feel bad if i don't exercise daily.
- My favourite food is probably bread. All kinds of bread. 
- I like keeping it real (no fake nails, fake lashes, fake tan, fake hair).
- I love watching documentaries, especially about the sea and the world wars.
- I am 100% certain I will live in America or Australia at some point in my life.
- I own 12% of a really cool phone app.
- I think I'm a really good girlfriend. 

Some juicy facts in there, haha I will write a post about the app i own parts of soon. ;)

Hello, thought i'd post a bit of a happier post today. haha. So it's friday and i decided to not go swimming this morning because I'm lazy and fat. :) or just tired. I'm about to get ready to go out as I'm going with Carl when he's getting a haircut.

Oh yeah, Carl's friend Ben is coming over today, haha coming over, like he lives next door.. anyway, he's staying over the weekend so let's see if Mariestad has enough fun things to keep us busy for 3 days.

Ah well, i think that's it for now. :) Have a great friday people! Wihoo

People in the gym and Nike air shoes.

Good morning, today i would like to speak to you about people in the gym. I thought you go to the gym for exercise. For example i go to the gym for all the machines because i dont really know how to train those muscles at home without equipment. But lately my friend has been snapshatting me videos and pictures of not herself, her friend in the gym. So first of all she's on her phone in the gym? And second of all, she's sending videos of her friend actually exercising in the gym, so she's basically just going to the gym to film her friend?

I think it's ok to have your phone with you in the gym, if it's for music or if you are expecting a really important phonecall, for example your sister is giving birth.. or your nan is in the hospital dying.. You get my point. I just don't understand. Why would you spend that much money on a gymcard when you clearly have no interest in doing any exercise. And if your friend is trying to get her workout done, why are you bothering her?

I don't really know why this bothers me so much but it reallt gets me.

Also, something that's been annoying me lately is Nike shoes, sure some of them look pretty good, but guess what people, these are running shoes. They are not meant to be worn all the time. And red and pink still doesnt go together, and neon colours are still not good shoe colours. And also, you can go to the gym without Nike shoes. Beleive it or not, normal running shoes will do you just fine - even if they are black! (oh no she didnt!)

I wouldnt mind having a pair of these Nike air max shoes, but i wouldnt get them in a hidious neon colour so i need sunnies to look at them, and i wouldnt walk around in them all the time. I wouldnt go shopping in my trainers? And why is this all of a sudden ok? If i ever get a pair, they would be a little more.. pretty, and they would only be worn to, in or from the gym. End of story.

I know people might not agree with this (clearly..) but you will look at photos of yourselfs in 15 years and wonder what you were thinking. This is one of the things your kids will laugh at in the future.

Ok, enough with the grumpy writing. how's your day so far? Mine is great, just got back from my swim, 2.3km. I did well. And also today is semeldagen (fat tuesday in sweden) so i will be digging into a creamy cake later on! yumm.

Happy Monday!

Let me tell you about something that happened yesterday, this is something i never thought i would do - ever. I said no to free pizza! haha, i know right, can't beleive it myself really. I was in work, and i was offered a pizza as the family i work with were having some for dinner, and i turned it down. Mhm! It hurt really bad as well, haha. I'm quite proud of myself for me self dicipline though. :) Also, had a great dinner with my boyfriend in the evening, chicken, chips and bea. Yumm!

Anyway, i havent done much today, been a bit of a chill. Cleaned a little in the morning and then read some of my new book i got last week. It's Carolina Gynnings book Laura. I've read nearly half of it now, it's better than i thought it would be to be honest. I know I'll have read it all by tomorrow so going to the library again later (like the bookwork i am nowadays). Got 3 books on my list again this week, it's:

George R. R. Martin - A Game of Thrones (i think we all know what this is? it's the first book behind the awesome TV-show.)

Carlos Ruiz Zafron - The shadow of the wind (will get this in Swedish because the original is in spanish so it's translated anyway so no point getting it in snglish really..?)

Carolina Gynning - Vanessa, flickan i glaskupan (the 2nd part of the book I'm reading now. Also in Swedish because the author is Swedish so no translation here.)

I'll let you know what i think of them all when I'm done reading them all, shouldn't take too long! haha. Ah well, that's it for today, feels good to be back on the blog! Will try to update it more than ones every 4 months now as well, shouldnt be too hard with the job i have at the moment. Speak soon!

Ignore my boyfriends georgeous socks! haha

Let's be friends!
