43 things

A Japanese friend of mine who is teaching herself Swedish showed me I think I had seen it once before and not really understood what it was, but this time I really got hooked. I set up a list of things I want to do, and I will try to check back on that page as often as possible and keep myself motivated to do the things on the list. In fact, I should put that on the list: "Take your 43 things seriously", or just "Check your list of goals often". My username there is joaquim (I can't believe it wasn't taken).

In unrelated news, my older brother is in China. So that's one thing to check off his list, although he doesn't keep it on 43 things. It's cool, he seems to be having a blast. Check out his blog, there's a link to it somewhere around here. Don't read too much of it though, my blog will fade in comparison.

Now, one thing I won't have to put on 43 things is taking pictures with my mobile phone. I just can't get enough of it. Here's a few to start with, and then I'll post more as often as I can remember.

For those of you not from Sweden, this is how buying candy in a swedish supermarket looks like. At this particular date, it was 49 SEK/kg. A fair price.

This is one of my favourite candy flavours: licorice. It also happens to be a hit with the female population of China, or at least the one my brother knows there. This photo looks pretty as a thumbnail, but the large version really shows off the crappiness of my phone cam.

Tune in next time for photos taken on the bus, when bored out of my skull while commuting to/from work.

Xboxcellent! Now I can show your pictures of Sweden to the female population of one! Also, I get to reminisce over licorice, until you send me more ;)
