Enjoy Not Knowing

Just another American living in Sweden

book of may

You will not find this book in stores, as I made it with my brain and a glue stick.


This is the only book I’ve read cover to cover this month, so that’s why it’s featured on the blog today. Tomorrow I’ll be using this home made log book during my very first in class exam at university in Sweden. Up until now we have had final papers, not exams, so this is certainly an exciting nerve-racking time. Now, for my Natural Science and Technology with Outdoor Pedagogy class I’ll be taking the plunge into university test taking (in Sweden). We’re allowed to bring a 200 page log book in to the exams with our notes from the class. Good thing too!

Vital information


This may be my first book of the month post that won’t conclude in a recommendation. Purely because no one else can actually read it. As I write I realize that’s not entirely true. If you come to Sweden, specifically where I reside, you may read the book. With my permission of course. Oh, and there’s the prerequisite that you can read I Swedish, as 99.6% of the book is in Swedish. So, if you know Swedish and are feeling especially motivated you can come read my log book. But this is like those library books you can’t check out and have to read while on the premises. Only in that case do I recommend you read this book. 

Until next time!

an apology

I have been away now for over two months. Those of you who have followed this blog for a while can attest to the fact that this tends to happen occasionally.

Life gets busy.

In the recent months I have been wrapping up my Swedish as a second language course – the final exam is tomorrow. I’ve been running like a mad woman. I’ve travelled across the Atlantic, which was lovely, I’ve hosted a friend here in Sweden, and I’ve been party planning. I’m well on my way to taking my driver’s test at the end of the month. Work has also made a big appearance in my scheduling, as we’ve entered the busiest time of the year – the end of the school year. Meetings galore!

I would like to say that you’ll all soon get to hear more about these exciting events soon. But there are no guarantees. Especially with the exciting announcement that’s coming up.

Tune in tomorrow to see what’s in store!

In the mean time, I will leave you with this lovely thought from Brian Andreas:
