My Darling Mio

my itteh bitteh kitteh luv ^^

By the window :)

baby on the piano :)


a sepia style picture of me :)

I took an interesting personality test based on art, just click on the picture that appeals to you the most. Somehow I guess your personality affects what pictures you will be drawn to? :) I'll put the link here:

awww, according to this test I'm "Trustworthy and nurturing" ^^ That made my day! :)

:( depressingly impossible

(PHOTO BY depiction of the saddest of scenarious. Credit to cherrykizz at deviantart.

How do you stop someone from committing suicide? Can a persons worth really be summed up in words?
It's depressing to think that there may be NOTHING I can do, and someone could die because of it. The word "useless" comes to mind. :( Obviously it wouldn't be my fault. But the feeling is still there, if only there was something I could do or say...?



Transformers, the Hello Kitty version! >:)

lol, the sad thing is, I'd probably enjoy a HelloKitty version of Transformers more than the original. ^^ hehe
Nice idea anyways!

Three things

Three things I don't understand: the point of sports, math, and what people see in Lady Gaga

photo editing fun

my edited photo of myself

I've recently learned to edit photo's, and it is so much fun :)

One day I'll get a camera and truly get into photography and photmanipulation, but until then, my cellphone cam will work ^^ Imagine doing this kind of thing for a living? total awesomeness!


Imagine being able to draw like this. *sigh* so beautiful!

Imagine being so talented you could draw someting like this. It's amazing, look at all the little details on the dress, even the flowers floating by the lower part of the picture. Incredible. I envy artists like these ^^

Breathtaking forest

absolutely beautiful. Photo taken by

Isn't it lovely? It's weird to think that forests like these are real and so close. :)
Some things in life are almost too good to be true aren't they?

Notice the cats :)

For the love of kittens

This was the first thing I drew once i learned to use the computer to make art

SciFi Romance ;)

Photo by

It's finally nice and cool outside, so I went for a walk. It was sprinkling when I left the house, but by the time I came home, barely an hour later, I was drenched. hehe. Honestly, I love it. Rain is beautiful, it makes the air feel fresh and clear, it makes allergies a whole lot easier, and it cools you down in the summer. :) Besides that, it's the inspiration behind a ton of great songs! Dead serious, I'm sure you can think of atleast three right now. lol

Little brother

Lord of cucumber drinks ;) hehe
My little brother Markus is coming in September.
He's homeschooling, so he gets to stay here for a few months no problem. I actually love playing teacher, that's why I joined Barn och Fritid.

But I also worry about him coming here, I don't want him to end up with the wrong friends and have him turn out like the average 15 year olds I see in these areas. I want to shelter him from the problems "normal" kids have, I still feel like he's too young to be as angry and depressed as all the other teenagers here.

When he's around, I try harder than usual to be "perfect", do chores, keep up with homework, be obedient, be mature. I want to be the best possible influence.

He thinks I'm strict and mean, which, yeah I guess I can be when he's around. I'm harsh because that's what works, he respects and obeys me. If I let go and let him do whatever, he'd end up a disrespectful screwup, probably drink and smoke and get in trouble. I can't allow that.

Parents call that Tough Love right?
He probably feels like he'll never be good enough for my approval, but it's because I know he has the potential to be better that I'm as strict as I am.

Can you blame me?

World Behind My Wall

Best song ever :)

I love this picture :)

They're telling me it's beautiful
I believe them but will I ever know
The world behind my wall?

The sun will shine like never before
One day I will be ready to go
See the world behind my wall

Trains in the sky

Are traveling through fragments of time
They're taking me to parts of my mind
That no one can find

I'm ready to fall

I'm ready to crawl on my knees to know it all
I'm ready to heal, I'm ready to feel

They're telling me it's beautiful
I believe them but will I ever know
The world behind my wall?

The sun will shine like never before
One day I will be ready to go
See the world behind my wall


There was a poem I wrote a few years back, I thought I'd add it here ^^


Sweet snowflakes fall in silence,

I stand and watch in awe.
Eyes wide, heartbeat slow,
trying to make sense of a
quiet place with a loud mind.
The snow closes in on me,
each tiny droplet finding a place to land.
Its so peaceful when they
touch my skin and melt into tears
from above me, so far away.
The purring soul beside me
closes deep yellow eyes,
as if to tell me he knows.
He feels it too.
The want to smile and let the sky fall.
***Everything will be ok.***

OMG I have officially found the prettiest dress on earth :) I would totally wear this to something awesome like my own wedding. ;) hehe
This dress is unbeliveable, as soon as I found this picture I nearly screamed out loud.
Every little detail is beautiful! The color, the length, the sleeve detail, the print, the strapped corsette, it's all too gorgeous to be real :)

It kind of reminds me of Princess Amidala's dress (StarWars refrence, mybad)

The dress!!

Dead serious, this dress is so cool, I'd wear it to my own wedding ^^

Almost one year

The whole family :)

It's almost August.
On August 3rd, it will have been exactly one year since I last saw my mom. Dad and Makus have come to visit when they can, but mom had to stay to take care of the business and the cat while dad and Markus came. We still email all the time, or talk on the phone, but I still miss her.

What exactly do I miss?
Singing as loud as we could in the car.
Long conversations over endless cups of coffee.
Hanging out in Barnes&Nobles.


One day we'll do all those things again.

Just thinking...

;) For those of you who can't see it clearly, I'm holding a very small frog. lol
Where am I going to be in 5 years?
I'll be nearly 23.
I hope to graduate from Gymnasiet in 2 years, then move to Seattle,  get my own apartment, work at some cute cafe, save enough to visit Tokyo, come back and settle down with Prince Charming, get married and live happily ever after :)


How often do people actually do the things they dreamed of?
Who can honestly say they attained all their lifes goals?
I hope to be one of the few who gets to live my dreams and not feel regret.

I'm afraid of getting stuck in this small town after graduation, not having the money or the opportunity to move back to America. :( What if somewhere along the road, I just settle for life here in Sweden?
People joke that I'll change my mind eventually and stay in Sweden for the rest of my life, but how could I?? As much as I love it here, it isn't home. The town in Illinois I used to live in isn't home either, I want to go somewhere new, live my "Happily Ever After" years somewhere I've never lived before. Washington? Colorado? Even Minnesota?
How about Canada? :)
But I'm aiming for Seattle.

Anyways, I'm taking life one day at a time. One day I'll look back on my time here and think "Dang, my life was so easy back then. Nothing but freedom and peace. Good old days!"
I hope I can appreciate these years as much as possible, it almost seems too good to be true sometimes.

Depressing note: if these are the best days of my life, is it all going downhill from here?
Ignorance is bliss, and I prefer to naively belive that it's only going to get better with time :)

My wonderful cat Tippy who lives with my parents in the States still :( I miss him so much!

Back to school soon

Less than a month until school starts. I'm slightly nervous, but also looking forward to it :)
(Yeah I know, "Geek!!" ...yeah shut up).   ;)

I recently read an interesting book, ("Being" by Kevin Brooks), about a kid who wakes up during surgery (yeah, ouch!) to find that he has electronics instead of normal organs. His doctors are freaking out, so he He's an orphan, and doesn't know anyone who knows anything about him. So he runs from the government (who seem to be chasing him, thinking he's some kind of weapon or something) and tries to figure out what he is. Robot? Cyborg? Alien? Who knows.
Anyways, it was really cool, except for the ending: you never actually find out what he is or who created him or anything. He just escapes to temporary safety.

SERIOUSLY? I was totally expecting more from the author, but whatever.

Same deal with The Giver by Lois Lowry. Great book, unclear ending.   :P

Ever heard of That site is Nerd heaven ^^ lol. Basically a site where you tell about what books you read and what you did or didn't like about them.  I'm attaching a link to my account below here:

I love punk covers of songs I grew up on, so today I hunted down a list of my so far favorites:

Put Your Hands On My Shoulders --- covered by Good Charlotte
Footloose --- covered by Good Charlotte
My Heart Will Go On --- covered by New Found Glory
Kiss Me --- covered by New Found Glory
I Don't Want To Miss A Thing --- covered by New Found Glory
Seasons In The Sun --- covered by Blink 182
Against All Odds --- covered by The Postal Service (not punk, still awesome)

I know there are a ton more, I just can't think of them right now :P

I had all these goals for the summer (Lose 10 kgs, get tanned, get better at Swedish reading and spelling, improve social skills, blablabla...) and you know what I accomplished?
I didn't do crap.
Oh well. There's always the future, right?

For a first blog entry, I think I covered pretty much.
(Confession: I have no idea why I'm making a blog. hehe. Just wasting time feeding my ego? Sue me.)

Please comment if you have something to say, I love argu..uh, ahem, making pleasant conversation! ^^
