Finally.. Time to say goodbye to Sweden

Can't believe it's officially here.. It's autumn... And... We are finally leaving...

Walking around in the mostly empty apartment, I can't believe how an empty house echoes.. 2 weeks of mad packing (lots of procrastinating in between) and everything came to a dramatic conclusion yesterday.. 

The removalists came, packed and moved nearly everything away. Started with 4 people at 8 am but there were at least 6 of them by 4-5 pm.. Cue lots of fikas in between ;) but it's a lot of work!

We still have a few days left before we fly out, so, we are still enjoying the last few days of cold before the crazy humid weather greets us =)) (lots of cleaning today, unfortunately ;((( )

One thing I've learned from my stay here in Sweden? Enjoy life, enjoy the whole new experience living in a foreign country and making new friends... Ladies who moved because of their other halves?  Don't sit around and moan about the locals, the weather or how much they hate it here.. Before bitching or moaning about each other.  Embrace everything around you and learn to enjoy the positives.. Anything could happen in a few weeks or months from then..  

Life is complicated as it is, it's better to let go of bad vibes, backstabbing, fake so called friends who use you. I'll remember the good old times and the bad will just be a distant memory. Actions do speak louder than a few fakes 'oh darlings' or 'I miss her' utterings. 

Until then, hej då Sverige..

"Z Nation".. Another "Walking Dead" Zombies Apocalyptic series...

I'm not sure, looking around for more TV series to get into, I found Z nation, knowing no other zombie series will beat "walking dead" but out of curiously, I decided to watched the first episode and was pleasantly surprise that it's actually not as bad as I thought it'll be...  Quite enjoyed it somehow.

The story is quite similar but still different to the "Walking Dead", the characters are vaguely quite similar to the "Walking Dead" as well.  But Z Nation happened 3 years after (the characters are more seasoned by then and so are the zombies), and Walking Dead happened during the first year...

The first episode, I thought Hammond's the main character as he's the guy in charge throughout, transporting Murphy to California (who is the cure to the Zombies as he's been injected with some experimental drugs, bitten by loads of zombies and survived).  Murphy is annoying and selfish, basically not a very likable guy at all.  Pity he's the package that needs delivered.

Unfortunately, Hammond got knocked out pretty quick..  By a zombified baby no less =P (Truth be told, when the zombified baby started running amok, I thought of Chuckie and thought, ok, maybe this TV series is a bit stupid, but after the zombified baby has been put down, things were a lot better...)

Citizen Z, Garnett and Hammond (bye bye!)
There's also a Glenn & Maggie (Mack & Addy) in the group, Michonne (Warren, kick ass black woman of the group), a young Daryl (10k), Herschel (Doc) .. and of course Rick (Garnett)...  There's a few other characters as well - an asian chick with a past... and the nerdy guy from Road Trip (Citizen Z), stuck by himself in Antarctic with a dog.

Well, hello there!  (10k)

The group transporting Murphy (far right)
Walking dead is definitely more heart pumping and scarier, but I really am enjoying Z Nation as there's some comic relief in there as well.  This group might be trying to survive, but that hasn't stop them from having some fun while they are at it.

If you love apocalyptic and horror movies, definitely check it out.  It's now in its 5th episode.  Check it out, there's puppies and kittens headed your way!
