In May I wrote an update regarding 11 quick ones, questions I wanna ask some of my loved ones or people I follow on social media for example.
My thought was every Sunday but hey that ddn’t go as planned.
I felt today was a great day to introduce my dearest sister who now lives in Sydney. My old city. Karro and I are not blood related, but that don’t matter at all, she always been like my little sister.
Look how cute we were in 1988, gosh.
Seriously you don’t need to have the same dads or moms. We spent so much time together so we are the same in many ways anyway, I think even closer than many biological siblings sometimes.
Linne’a my nan have always been our common role model in life. She taught us many good things, took us on trips in Europe, etc etc..
In April 2011 I moved down under to the land of OZ.
In April 2018 Karro took the move, now she’s been away few months and I miss her a lot and also my days in Sydney to be honest. Life in Australia is pretty different to Sweden.
I would like to share my 11 questions with you from Karro.
Living: Sydney: Australia
Working with: Receptionist at a members only club
How do you know Miranda: Oh I’ve always known her, she’s my sister (from another mister) and I could not be more blessed.
1.WHAT’S THE FIRST THING YOU WOULD DO IF YOU WON THE LOTTERY?
pay off my student debt. Then I’d buy a cozy camper van and travel to every little place on earth with it.
2.HOW OFTEN DO YOU TRY NEW THINGS?
Not as often as I would like, but I’m always happy when i do so i think my midsummer resolution (why wait until new years to have a resolution?) will be to try more new things.
3.WHAT’S YOUR WORST HABIT?
The worst habit is probably that i pick the scab off my wounds, i know i shouldn’t but sometimes i can’t help it.
4. WHAT MADE YOU LEAVE SWEDEN FOR A NEW COUNTRY? ANY TIPS TO SOMEONE THAT HAS THE SAME DREAM BUT DON´T DARE TO DO IT? I left Sweden mostly because of the weather, I am just not made to be in a country that has winter for 10 month’s of the year. I felt depressed and I didn’t activate myself, I kind of went into “hibernation” like a lot of swedes do during winter and thats not a life i want to live. Don’t get me wrong, Sweden is a beautiful country in so many ways but the climate is just too cold for me to handle.
Many people tell me that they’d never dare to leave their country, especially not on their own. People ask me how i find the courage to do so (since I’ve picked up and left all on my own a few times now) The truth is I can’t identify with that fear. I’ve never been scared of leaving. I’ve always been more scared of staying. Scared of not changing and shaping my life into what I want and what i feel in my heart is right. When I in January decided to leave Sweden again it was because I was scared of what type of zombie I would turn into if I stayed. The only tip I can give someone who wants to leave but are too scared is that the world is such a small place, I promise with all my heart that when you do take that step, that scary, big, crazy step, you are going to-within only a few weeks, realize that it wasn’t actually that big of a step. . It’s not a scary world out there, it’s a beautiful, loving and caring world and people catch you if you fall. You are never alone and you always have support.
5. WHAT MAKE’s YOU FEEL BEAUTIFUL ?
I feel the most beautiful at times when I am being myself to 100% and someone appreciates that and laughs at my jokes or likes my company.
6. HOW DOES IS FEEL TO BE ´NEW´ IN A BIG CITY ? Exciting, Exhausting and Elevating and sometimes a little bit lonely, thank goodness for FaceTime and social media. Mostly I just feel blessed to be able to explore new places.
7. IF YOU COULD DO ANYTHING YOU WANTED, WHAT WOULD THAT BE?
If i could do just anything i wanted in the world i would obviously stop wars and cure cancer and stop global warming, and if I could make a living out of having meaningful conversations with people or cuddle with puppies I would.
8. WHAT ARE YOUR TOP PLAYED SONGS ON SPOTIFY RIGHT NOW ?
I don’t know how to check that? Is there a list somewhere? I think Ziggy Alberts will be up there, and Van Morrison, The Cure, Mipso and The Felice Brothers.
9.WHAT IS MORE IMPORTANT TO YOU – TRUTH OR HAPPINESS?
Im not sure I could have happiness without truth, truth and honesty is very important to me, If I could be obliviously happy I would choose that!
10. WHAT DO YOU ENJOY THE MOST IN YOUR JOB?
I’m very new at my job but I enjoy being back as a receptionist – it’s been a few years since i did that and it’s nice. The interaction with guests is probably my favourite part.
11. IF YOU COULD GIVE A 20 YEAR OLD A GREAT ADVICE WHAT WOULD THAT BE?
That depends on the 20 year old! If it was myself as a 20 year old I’d probably say: One day you’ll be cool, or you won’t but that won’t matter cause you’ll be awesome anyways, mother earth will have your back.
