I'm broke!

This is how broke I am:
Ye, it's not easy, my daily budget at the moment is below 6€ so I really gotta try not to buy anything. The good thing is that got the last payment on my laptop done so that's one thing less to worry about, and I got my mum a x-mas gift. It's one of the hardest things to buy your parents for some reason, I always feel like I don't have a clue of what they would like.

Stockholm was nice by the way. One of the things we did the most when I was there was eat and play xbox haha, it might sound abit stupid but it was awesome. My sister Sara seems to like games where you get to shoot people like Modern Warfare 2 and some gangster game demo. They got 4 controllers so it was really fun playing deathmatch on MW2 even tho it ended up with me cursing everyone out cos I can't get anyone killed and everyone's bullets just seem to hit me all the time, Sara just gets frustrated and quits playing.
If you got an xbox360 you should get Splosion Man, I'd say it's the most awesome game there is on xbox360 and I can purchase it trough xboxLIVE. We played it with four players and it's fun cos you don't get the split screen in this game since it's 2D, so if the others run away from you and you can't catch up, you'll die.
That all on "xboxing".
As I wrote before I wanted to take Sara and Petter (her boyfriend) bouldering, so that we did. The place was massive but mainly just sportsclibing(if that's what it's called when you got the ropes etc), I can't say the bouldering area was small or anything but I taught it would have been larger. Sara and Petter both did really well and if they were being honest with me they liket it. Sara complained about her sore arms trough the rest of my visit (3 days). After some hours of bouldering we headed back to their place for a taco dinner with lots of food, wine, beer and mojitos.
We had dinner one night at this cool place I think was called Olssons or something where they got garlic in everything they serve, even the icecream (which we didn't have cos we were all stuffed). I had the ribbs with lots of small side dishes, Sara had the seafood chili stew and Petter some kind of chili con carne thingy. The food was great and so smelled our breaths thereafter. Sara couldn't finish hers so me and Petter had to help her out, you could say everyone got more than enough. If you travel to Stockholm you should check this place out since it's unique in alot of ways, you just have to see it for yourself and try to get trough their list of shots, there are 101 of them.
Another day we had "Planksteak", actually served on a plank with mashed potatoes. You could taste the strong taste of unhealthy food, and it was great. Too bad it totally messed up all of our stomaches and most of us barfed and got diarrhea, I still think it might have been worth it haha! I actually had to check the spelling on diarrhea and ended up on wikipedia and this is what it says:  
"Diarrhea (from the Greek διάρροια meaning "flowing through"), also spelled diarrhoea, is the condition of having three or more loose or liquid bowel movements per day. It is a common cause of death in developing countries and the second most common cause of infant deaths worldwide. The loss of fluids through diarrhea can cause dehydration and electrolyte imbalances. In 2009 diarrhea was estimated to have caused 1.1 million deaths in people aged 5 and over and 1.5 million deaths in children under the age of 5.Oral rehydration salts and zinc tablets are the treatment of choice and have been estimated to have saved 50 million children in the past 25 years."
Jakob Wilhelmsson the former pro snowboarder came by one evening and dropped off my new board which was awesome, the board looks alot cooler than on any picture and Jakob seemed really nice.

Last thing about Stockholm I want to recommend people to go see is The Swedish Museum of Natural History where they got this 3D IMAX (I don't know exactly what makes IMAX IMAX but this screen stretches all around you and above you) where they show documentaries about animals, fishes, dinosaurs etc. A really nice experience and the Museum itself is also very nice because there's alot of things you can try out like how fast your reaction time is or if you are able to assemble the insides of the human body in the right places and so on. Check it out.

After the trip it been mostly work, hanging out with friends, visiting my parents, bouldering and trying to figure out the mysteries of life and how to make it. I'd like to go back to stockholm in the beginning of next month for a concert but because of my financial situation it looks really bad. I know nothign about this incoming winter so far and overall I try to get something planned and booked because I hate this uncertainty and when you don't know where anythign is going. 
Now it's time to check out the latest episodes of How I Met Your Mother and How to Make it in America
before going to bed so that I can wake up at 6:40 for work with a huuuuuude smile on my face. Oh ye they changed the menu so I don't even know how to make anything tomorrow *HF*
