Sunday Sum-ups: July 29 2018
 

Another week has gone by so fast that I didn't even realize Sunday is almost over and I haven't noted down anything for the sum-up yet. My mood this week has been better. I know that emotion can be extremely contagious and I have to keep myself happy to make other people around me happy. Otherwise, the social circle around me will be a grumpy mess and I am to blame. Anyway, here's some highlights.

1. I've been back to Warsaw again this week. People have been asking why I go to Poland so often and the truth is that I was going on a dental trip. Dental care in Poland is so much cheaper compared to Sweden and the flight tickets are also quite cheap if you have Wizzair membership. And of course, it would be a sensible thing to enjoy and explore the city while I'm there. I didn't do anything adventurous this time tho, only hanging around in the Old Town and go to the observation deck at the Palace of Culture and Science to get a good view of the whole city. I went there during the day but would definitely recommend going there when it's getting dark so you can see how the city lights up at night. The communist architecture in the city center reminded me so much of Berlin.

2. I discovered Frida Kahlo the first time in my life this week by watching the movie "Frida". Call me ignorant, I know I am. I feel like I should have known about her so much earlier. She was such a badass. Anyway, the point is, I got so inspired by her fashion style and all the costumes in that movie. I guess I've just taken a liking in Mexican traditional clothes now. Such beautiful vibrant colors. Why don't I see anyone with a good fashion sense here in Malmö? It seems like black is Swedes' favorite color especially in the winter.  No wonder why so many people get depressed living here. 

3. IKEA is having a big summer sale so my bf and I were busy hunting discounted items for our apartment. We actually just finished putting together a very complicated desk (in my opinion) without wanting to kill each other at all! I'm so impressed with our teamwork skill. Such relationship goal haha. 

Clearly I haven't done anything interesting or discovered some new place in Skåne this week, but personally, this week has been a productive one, especially with the apartment. Anyway, this coming week I'll try to get my ass outside more often because it's summer for god's sake. 

Does it look like Berlin to you? It does, to me. Somehow in my mind, Warsaw is actually Eastern Berlin.
