Incarnation

After a few buts and ifs, I’ve finally submitted my application for school for this fall. I’m excited actually. One of the course I applied for has been a dream for me for a very long time, and I can’t wait to finally get started on it. I’m pretty positive that one course will help me get a better understanding in my job as a music-journalist, if anything. Or perhaps I can just work with it once I’m done. We’ll see.

The second course is perhaps not a dream as much as it is an expansion of my already running education. It’s a course that, if I get accepted, will help me be able to FINALLY improve hårdrock.com, which I got the green lights for today. It could also help this blog. Who knows. The third course is a bit of a dream, I guess, not as big as the first one, but one nonetheless. This is more in the back though, and I’ll let it take it’s time. But yes.

For the first time in forever I’m actually TRULY excited for school. And it’ll all be better if I manage to finish everything I have behind me this semester, and I’m on a good way if I may say so. I’m just preparing for the exam on May 6th, ironically three days after Stockholm Rocks happens. Damn damn damn. Hopefully a potion of Reckless Love, H.E.A.T and TNT can help me get the right amount of motivation. I also kinda NEED to nail it, as the next exam-date is right in the middle of Sweden Rock, and I really don’t wanna postpone this exam further.

Apart from that, for my journalistic course I’m now gonna start read a book called “En Riktig Våldtäktsman” (A true rapist). It’s the kinda the follow-up for “Flickan och Skulden” (The girl and the guilt) and is a journalistic book about, well, rapists and society’s view on rape. I wasn’t sure at first what book I was to choose for this assignment, but as it is a blog-assignment and I need to write my own viewpoints, I figured it was best if I chose a book on a subject in which I have a lot of opinions and feelings about. Which I do with rape, rape-culture and society’s view on it.

Who would have thought huh. However, I’m not gonna bring up a discussion about it on here. I’m trying to keep this blog free from political standpoints, or, really, anything like this. So this was as much as you get, but hey! At least you now know there are a lot more going on in my head than Frozen and heavy metal.

I’m a bit late with the assignment though. Like, two weeks overdue. Which is ironic. It’s a journalistic course. The number one thing is to keep deadlines. I guess deadlines never bothered me. Anyway, I better get started. And this will sure as hell give me nightmares. Good thing Elsa is just across the room.
