The Nobel Prize for Literature 2011

Did you hear who has been awarded the Nobel prize for Literature this year?

My favorite poet. And a Swede!

I'm definitely not into poetry, but this poet is amazing. I was forced to read and analyze him in high school and I'm so glad that I had to. Tranströmer writes in a pretty simple way, with a very metaphorical language. He's been translated into over 60 languages and I've heard that his poems are great translated too.

He unfortunately doesn't write much anymore due to a stroke he suffered, but he's also a very good piano player and I think there are published recordings by him too.

I truly recommend you reading some of Tranströmers work! Here's an Amazon link to one of his books: The Great Enigma: New Collected Poems

Gym card!

I bought my first gym card ever yesterday. It's been since my first year of high school I worked out regularly. And that's like... 6 years ago. I also took my first class yesterday. Some basic cardio, strength (like sit-ups and push-ups) mixed with simple aerobic moves. I feel a bit sore today, but it's such a great feeling!

Day 11 - Silhouette

Ok, so this might not be a great silhouette picture, but it was the best I could do.

It's an Instagram filter and then I did some tilt shifting to get focus on their hands.

Photo Challenge?

Well, I honestly don't know what happened with my photo challenge. Summer apparently meant so much more than time to blog. I'v been traveling quite a lot, not far, but back and forth to Göteborg a couple of times and some trips to my father in Landskrona and then to friends. And I did a lot of studying.

Now, I'm back in Göteborg for what hopefully is my last semester at uni and then I'll have a bachelor's degree in statistics. I'm taking a couple of different courses and I have some exams that I'll have to retake too. And then there's the issue about my bachelor's thesis. I now live in a new apartment on my own. A tiny tiny studio (smaller than my last one), but it's basically in the middle of down town Göteborg. I will have to post pictures as soon as I get it all done.

About the photo challenge. I think I'm just gonna take it up from where I left of, that is day 11. And then I'm gonna tell you all about my latest book finds and new favorite TV shows.

Day 10 - Animal

I have taken lots of pictures of animals lately. Mostly on the same dog though, my mom's dog Liza. She's in one of the pictures below.

Giant spider I had on my bedroom wall a couple of weeks ago. Freaked me out.

Birds I feed on a square in Kristianstad

Our dog, Liza

All photos are taken with my iPhone app Camera+ and I've used Instagram to put different filters on all pictures above.
