FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK
I can't even put enough FUCK on this page to describe how I felt. Don't ever put sparkling water into a Nalgene bottle. I thought it was a bad idea when I put it in there, but did it anyway. Well the fucking bubbling water leaked out on to my journal and wiped out my first months entries (the ink in the pen I used was like fountain pen ink), so there goes all the great stories (sorry to censor, but some of the best stories aren't allowed on this blog). So I was pretty pissed, but fairly calm about it (I don't know how to describe it), the entries are gone, oh well, I will live.
Not to mention its Pride week in Stockholm (not exactly the best time to go pick up girls, FUCK), so every damn hostel is booked full, I didn't book any accommodation in advance so it took me forever to find a hostel that would "rent" me a mattress that I could put on the floor to sleep, FUCK.
To add another FUCK to the list, I almost lost my most favorite shirt in the entire world, my thin black EMS fleece. I have had that shirt for probably about 10 years and it is quite possibly the most perfect shirt in the world, if you know me, you know the shirt I am talking about. Well it was gone, I retraced my steps, nothing, walked back defeated (it could have rained on me and it wouldn't have mattered) and then there it was hanging on a post. It was probably the best feeling in the world finding my favorite shirt in Stockholm after it was totally gone forever. Its pretty hard for me to describe how I felt.
Stockholm was quite interesting. Lots of free museums which was awesome. So there was this famous huge Swedish war ship called the Vasa from the early 1600s that was supposed to be this bad ass ship that was built for the war Sweden was currently having. It sank in the harbor of Stockholm in 1628 minutes after it set sail for the first time. Huge disaster, the king was totally pissed. It was eventually forgotten about till the 1950s. In 1961 they successfully brought the ship up from the harbor floor to the surface and its now in its own museum. So the Vasa Museum has the entire actual ship inside of it, its pretty incredible and I recommend it to anyone who goes to Stockholm.
Kind of funny, I randomly ran into this dude Dennis that I shared a room with in Oslo on the street, and then I ran into the two German sisters from Bergen (Gina and Jill) in the Vasa museum. totally random
