Written in Uppsala 20th of August 2007
Iâ€™ve had this apartment for 3 or 4 months now but until today I hadn’t really moved here. This time I brought almost all of my stuff. Ask my back if it was heavy! And still I have my instruments and my studio equipment left. Well, I do have one of my acoustic guitars here since Iâ€™m planning to play in the street tomorrow. When I played here last week two people from the Uppsala Reggae Festival came up to me and asked me to play at the camping. I did it, even if it was a bit strange â€“ Iâ€™m not even listening to reggae! Somehow a lot of people seemed to enjoy it though. And 260 people got caught because they were doing drugs
So, I’ve left Borlänge. Obviously it’s possible to do that without being a soccer player or a big rock star. Here in Uppsala I will study philosophy and hopefully play (and write) a lot of music. I also see this as an opportunity to add new things to my life and get rid of old unnecessary ones. Of course all old ones aren’t bad so I will save a few â€“ even if they are going to change in some ways. â€œChange is not necessary negativeâ€. I believe in that and Iâ€™ll keep that in mind!
Iâ€™m living in some sort of dorm (we are 12 people who share a kitchen and â€œliving roomâ€) and the people here seem great! Really. I havenâ€™t met all of them yet but hopefully the rest of them are OK too.
Now I have to sleep. Got plenty of things to do tomorrowâ€¦
Bye BorlÃ¤nge! Hello Uppsala!
