So, yesterday I found out about my test results on my swedish exams. This level of exams is kind of important because it is on the national level, so it demanded a lot of focus and skills, general knowledge and imagination. This period to be honest , I hadn’t had so much time to focus on studying swedish because I had my college class,I have my work, my blog, events are running all the time, so I couldn’t focus on it like I did last year. But this year I had a thing that helped way more than anything : I have my college class in swedish and I hang out mostly with my swedish classmates, so it just became so mush easier than before. The first month was so hard, that I literally had headaches every day, trying to think in 3 languages at the same time (swedish, english, and greek). But then, I just started talking along with them, and I never actually realised how much time had passed and I talked only swedish and not english any more! Of course there are moments that you just need to speak in english too, but I force myself almost all the time to not think in english anymore every time I am around swedish people 🙂 And I guess it works out 🙂
Of course there are always people who are gonna play it bossy and correct you in every single mistake you might make in their language, but to these people I wanna say that it is the effort that matters and I am really proud of myself and my sister that we have been here almost 2 years and we can say that we almost understand everything when other people talk.
My baby sister had the highest score in the national test in her school among the 3 classes of students who come from other countries like us. 🙂
I always say how much I love Sweden and Swedish, but to be really honest one thing that maybe dissapointed me a bit, is that I haven’t found an organized institution where someone can learn swedish in an appropriate way. Everyone talks about S.F.I. (Svenska För Invandare) (Swedish for immigrants), but to be honest it is not the way to learn swedish right. In real life, it is not as helpful as people might think. People always said “don’t think about it, just talk, talk, talk.” But the point for me was not to talk, was to talk right. I am kind of a perfectionist in things like this, so when I wanna do something, I wanna do it right, not just do it. So the only way to learn how to talk is to do it by yourself. This is why it was super hard for me in the first place because I had never learnt to study in that way. I always had some guidance by teachers, or some material that I could work with.
But either way, I can say that I can talk pretty well so far, and I will keep going till I finish the swedish studies in the highest level. 🙂
On the way to the top!! 🙂
Ever since that night of the 27th of November, the number 1 google search on my blog is about this battle. Now the video is out and trust me I have been waiting as much as you all did, because I was part of the video too and I really really wanted to see me. But as you are going to watch on the video, there has been an incident with the software and this is the only moments that the guys from Basementality managed to save. It is not the complete battle, and nothing else happened like the shit rumours that were all over the place. Now after almost 3 months here it is :
Pat Stay VS. Shotty Horroh, in Stockholm, Sweden.
Last Tuesday was the so called “biggest hip hop event of the year” , the Kingsizegalan. I think it was a good night. But it was not a great night. It was fun, there was a lot of people, but it was not like there haven’t already been Hip Hop events like this. My favourite artists won prices, (almost all of them) and they also performed live, meaning Kartellen, Näääk & Nimo and Christopher from SödraSidan. I also talked to almost all of them, and Christopher told me that it’s cool even if they didn’t win in the category that they were nominated, because 2013 is their year. They are preparing a whole new album, so this is the year we are going to see a lot from them 🙂 Can’t wait 🙂 I also talked to Alpis, Sebbe Staxx and hanged out with the guys from Internmusik, Pangaia and Chorizo Records. 🙂
Redline Recordings won almost every single price, such as producer of the year and new coming artist. (Dani M. )

Cool night, but not a great night. 🙂 There were lots of Hip Hop events like that before, maybe even better, like Big Disco for instance. 😉
Rock n’ Roll – ish all the way. I don’t really know where the inspiration comes from, I would say a little bit from everywhwere. Smokey make up, eye lashes, red lips (almost always) , lots of accessories, rosed rings, skulls, T – shirts with rock n’ roll designs, and of course all types of leggings and tights haha! It’s really easy to be dressed like this, I’ve always wanted to but didn’t have the right stores in my town. Here you can find clothes like this at H n’ M, Gina Tricot, and Bik Bok mostly 🙂
