God morning, sunshine

Today is a good day. I have no idea why, but I just woke up and was so incredibly happy! The sun is shining, I actually BAKED bread for breakfast, and then I did grown-up bank stuff while eating it. And it's not even ten thirty yet. I seriously have to go and do something irresponsably and stupid now.

...And since I started writing the post the day has passed and I have.. Made homemade meatballs... The fact that I spend this much time in the kitchen is a sign that I have too much free time. Is the vacation over soon? I'd like to go back to school now.

Anyways. I went out too by a new tire for my bicycle, and came back with a book. The weather was awesome, and I actually had to take my coat off because I was so warm. In other words, things are as they should be. But my bicycle is still broken, and I still need to fix it. But then on the other hand, I have something to read. Yay.

I bought "The Night Circus" by Erin Morgenstern. I haven't heard of it before, but it looks like the kind of book I will like.

This didn't turn out to be a very coherent post. It's mainly about what I did today. Although I didn't mention everything. Like the fact that I bought tofu. And sang very loud, and very falsly while cooking.

I'm just going to go and read my book now...

I read, therefore I am

One thing I've been thinking about a lot lately is books. E-books specificly.

I read a lot. Sometimes I think I can't go to sleep if I don't read a little bit first. And I've always been reluctant towards e-books. I can see the advantages with having all your books on a Kindle or something similar. They weigh less, and take less space. But I still prefer having the actual book in my hand and read words on paper rather than on a screen.

But then two months ago I moved to Germany. My first thought when packing was "How many books can I take with me?". Because I could only take with me so much that I could fit in two suitcases and a sportsbag.  My dad just stared at me with a look that was a mix of disbelief and the thought "crazy girl!". Then he told me that I couldn't bring any books at all, but that I could download a program to read e-books on my computer. Considering my prejudices against e-books I decided to give it a try. And I didn't like it. Plus the source I used to download books was my local library and the only books they have is crime novels. It may be the most popular category right now, but it's also the one category I don't really like.

Anyways. I sneaked down the Lord of the Rings trilogy in my bags, and they kept me happy until earlier this week. When I finished the last book.

Although I thought I'd found a solution. When playing around with my phone I found this e-book program for it in the google play store. And a bunch of free e-books I actually wanted to read. And I found that I could live with reading books on my phone. Until the stupid thing stoped working.

So now it's just me and my computer. And I really don't like it.  But I have come to the conclusion that it's not the e-books I don't like. It's e-books in combination with my computer.

One month 'til christmas. I'll survive.

To start things off, I should probably warn you. I'm terrible at posting regularly! But I'm going to do my best. Because there's a lot in my head, and I need to get it out. Plus my teacher told me to get a life. Wich I'm totally working on. I promise!

So what am I going to write about on this blog? And who am I? And What on earth is a Moomin?

Well... The Moomins is the creation of finnish-swedish author Tove Jansson. There's books about them. And comic-strips. And movies. Just google it will you?!

And I'm a Moomin. Sort of.

In Sweden (where I grew up) the Moomintrollls are mainly known for speaking with a funny accent. Beacause of my parents, I have that accent. So the other kids in school used to laugh at me and say I was a Moomin.

And now you should be able to read the title of this blog and figure out what I'm going to post here.
