Twitch did WHAT??!

(no, I couldn’t align the video to the center smh)

This post might be a bit different of what I usually post but I really wanted to make this post. So it was International Women’s last week and I decided to stream. Out of the blue some guy named Kyle came into my stream with a weird icon (a wrench) next to his name, I’ve never seen it before so I was a bit confused. I eventually found out that he was part of the Twitch Staff. With my lame sense of humor, I started joking about hiding the drugs (very funny I know) but he eventually explained to me what he does and apparently he handles on the social media accounts for Twitch. He also explained to me that he used to work for IGN’s social media in the past. So he was the person who retweeted my tweet months ago for IGN about a Snapchat tweet I did. Man the world is so small. It was a coincidence that he was in my stream though, not sure why he clicked on my stream of all the others. It could be because my title was Happy International Women’s Day! Perhaps, I still don’t know for sure. Anyways, let’s continue the story. After a few minutes of talking, he mentioned why he was in my stream. Apparently he was going to tweet out my stream on Twitch’s official Twitter page and post it on their FB page. I was like What? WHAT? I was not expecting that to happen at all. So Kyle worked on his magic and BAM it was UP! My chat went crazy for a while, a lot of people stopped by that evening and I kept panicking haha. Regardless, it was a fun experience.

Thanks #KyleBae

5 Retro Games You MUST Play!

There are so many good retro games out there that hasn’t been played/heard of or discovered by people. I decided to make a video of one of my favorite classic games that I recommend anyone who is interested to play. Of  course, I have a lot of other games on the shelf that deserves to be on that top 5 but fear not! I will make more of these. I just wanted to choose some games that were on three different consoles/platforms rather than just one.

If you want to know more about this list then go ahead and watch it.

People Change

Today’s post is going to be about something everyone goes through in life, everyone.

I’ve lost count of how many people I have met in life that used to be close to me, close as in a real sister/brother. When I was young (teenager) I always thought that it was weird to suddenly grow apart from someone. I thought if you’re really close to someone then you’ll be friends forever…but boy I was wrong. I was too young to understand life, too young to understand how the human brain works.

People change, you change, everyone changes. Some friends change so much that you’re willing to drop the friendship for good because there is too much negativity to it. Negativity won’t lead you to any good so better off without it. Childhood friends ends up nothing but a memory in the end. Sounds a bit sad I know.

Now, I am not saying that all my childhood friends are out of the window, don’t get me wrong. I still have some friends that I’ve known since kindergarden and I know for a fact that we will be friends no matter what happens. Why? Because we keep it real. By that I mean if we have something against each other we tell, we don’t hide it and talk shit about it. That’s what a true friendship is about. You argue, talk it out and then you resolve it, like you do in a relationship. You know who your true friends are that you can count on no matter what.

I’ve had a lot of “best” friends in the past that didn’t grow up, spoke shit constantly, couldn’t stop lying and couldn’t stop with their drama and keep they couldn’t their shit together. These kind of friends are just not worth your time. Some friends you used to be good terms with suddenly changed in a way you didn’t like and you just wanted to leave. It has happened to me quite a bunch of times. Don’t get me wrong, I am not complaining, I am just explaining it for you to understand that people change along their path of life, nobody stays the same. I am not saying that change is bad thing but sometimes, some changes might not be as good as you hoped they would be. Some friends also end up dropping you out of their lives, that has also happened to me a few times. I always question myself and think, is there something wrong with me? Have I done something wrong? If you haven’t done anything then it’s probably because they couldn’t handle your awesomeness. Some girl I used to know (I was 13 at the time) told me on the phone that she couldn’t handle me because I had too much energy (LOL) so yeah there you go, she wanted to hang with boring people. Good for her.

My whole point with this post is that don’t dwell about the past over old friends, it’s just part of life. Along your own path you will stubble on new friends, new faces and get new memories. Keep your chin up and smile.

Dish of the Month: Sushi @ Super Sushi (February)

It’s time to post the Dish of the Month for February.

I decided to go to my favorite Sushi restaurant (originally Chinese food but they serve Sushi too) for this months review.

Name of Resturant: Super Sushi
Location: Sweden, Gothenburg
Price: 95 kr/£8/$12
Size: Small
Gluten Free: Yes
Lactose Free: Yes
Dish: 12 pieces of Sushi – 2 Salmon, 1 Shrimp, 1 Crab stick, 1 Tuna, 1 Whitefish, 6 mixed rolls (Maki + Inside Out)

You are allowed to change the pieces if you’re not fond of certain rolls. I decided to go with:

4 Salmon, 1 Tuna, 1 White Fish, 6 Maki (Maki = cucumber roll with Salmon)

This is a place I’ve gone to since I was 17 (= 8 years) exclude the years when I was living in america and went to other Sushi places : ) This is one of my favorite places to order Sushi from. Their fish is always fresh and good and are in good sizes/portions and it’s not overly prices too. Also, you can choose between Small or Big pieces.

I am not a Sushi expert when it comes to taste but for me, this place is the place to go to whenever I want to have Sushi with a friend or on the go/take away. I have never had any issues with this place. The only thing I have to “complain” about is that their other Sushi restaurant (they have another one in a different location) is super small and never has room to sit down and eat. Although, according to one of their staffs, starting from 1st of February, the owner has changed and will not have anything to do with the smaller Super Sushi restaurant. He also mentioned that the main restaurant will focus more on their Chinese menu too, but the Sushi menu will stay the same as it is at the moment.

Miso Soup is included in this dish too, no extra charge.

Rating:

Is a 9 too high? No I don’t think so. The rating is combined with the price and service, not only the taste. I’ve been to many other Sushi restaurants and I’ve never found anything cheaper with that nice fish quality in Gothenburg. Why I didn’t give it a 10 was because of them not having Salmon Skin Roll in their menu. That’s one of my favorite rolls.

Dish of the Month

So I came up with this idea of reviewing a dish every month in different restaurants/Coffee shops/fast food places. Why? Because I love food and I want others to experience and learn more about different dishes and places. It can be from pizza to a cupcake. & of course, I am going to take foodporn pictures, in sexy angles (oh yeah baby)

I will rate everything from 1-10. One is the yuckiest while 10 is the best.

I am looking forward to eat…I mean!! It’s the sake for the blog, only for the blog *cough*

A New Chapter, Sacrifices & Growth

2017 will probably be one of my favorite years. I can’t tell you all the details yet but I have some big news to announce and I am looking forward to it. I am going to show my life a bit more than usual, open up which will be a bit weird because I am not used to it but it’s something I really want to do.

I want to grow and experience things. I want to see the world with my own eyes. There are so many things I want to do this year and I feel like it’s only the beginning. I turned 25 last week, which is insane. At the age of 20, I got a one way ticket to America, solo. I lived there for three whole years, crazy I know. Sometimes, you get a wake up call in life of wanting to do something new and risky. A lot of people don’t dare to even do them, instead they keep dreaming about it. Let me tell you a little secret, dreaming won’t take you anywhere. If you want to do things, you have to take the steps for yourself. Even if it’s baby steps, it still counts as progress. I am not talking about moving oversees now, I am talking about everything in life.

New things sounds scary, especially when it’s risky but how are you suppose to grow and learn from your mistakes when you don’t even make a single move at all? When you take a step and fail, you’ll know what to do next time to carry on. It makes you stronger along the way and wiser. Just because you fail doesn’t mean that you’ve lost it all. Failure is knowledge. It’s like the first time you fell off your bicycle when you were a kid when you took the short bumpy road rather than the long and even one. There are no shortcuts in life, same thing goes with success. Nothing is offered free in life, in order to achieve you have to be willing to sacrifice something in return.

This post is dedicated to those who are afraid of taking that first step. I want to tell you, whoever you are that everything will be fine as long as you keep walking forward. It will take time but eventually, you’ll get there.

You only live once, right?

Thank you for 2016 Bunny Squad <3

This post is dedicated to my followers on Twitch. I want to thank all of you who has been around in 2016. Some of you might be old followers from 2015 and some of you might be new followers from 2016. Regardless of when you guys followed/supported me, I just want to say thank you. I might not be the perfect streamer on Twitch, I try to be to though. I know my humors are dryer than the desert but I still try to make lame jokes and make you guys smile. I am happy that I can be myself online, not a wannabe and be accepted of who I am. I know that I don’t stream as much as I did before, it makes me a bit sad. Hopefully I can grow more this year and stream more than before!

You guys rock my world and you mean a lot to me. Thank you so much for all the love and support.

Let’s make 2017 a good one shall we?

Stupid Things Swede’s do

Yeah yeah, the title might be a bit “mean” but it’s okay because I am a Swede too, right?

But seriously, this is something I need to vent out on (or Rant out on) Some  of these things can apply to other people in different countries too, I am just writing these based off experiencing them myself here in Sweden (exclude the airplane one. You’ll know what I mean by that when you’ll watch the video)

I could write everything down if I wanted to but because I’ve made an awesome video, I decided to just paste it here for those who want to watch something instead.

Sit back and enjoy my rant. Oh and Merry late/belated Christmas!

It’s the most wonderful time of the year…or is it?

December, lights, music and yummy food. It sounds good doesn’t? But, everyone doesn’t have that feeling of joy in December, even though they have everything they need in life.

Winter can be depressing at times (depends where you live). If you live in a dark cold place like I do then you will relate to this post. This post is going to be about how to get the Christmas spirit back up on cloud 9, like it used to be when you were a kid.

Before I get into it, I know some of you might not even celebrate Christmas but this post is a guidance to those who doesn’t like cold winters so it might help you a bit too, so don’t give up reading this yet!

Small meaningful things matters. I always told myself that in life, you don’t have to make major changes to be able to enjoy it to the fullest. Start appreciating small things in life! It could be from looking forward to eat a yummy meal for dinner to seeing a childhood friend for coffee. It is that simple.

Food. Some of the small things I enjoy in life is food. I like trying new dishes, eating my favorite dishes and taking nice foodporn angled pictures! Some people don’t see food the way I do of course, everyone is different but if you’re like me when it comes to food, then keep doing what you’re doing.

Challenges. I love to challenge myself in something. If I have a goal or a deadline I try my best to be as creative as possible and just make it happen. Even if I don’t manage to finish a goal in time, I would still be proud of myself for finishing what I started. That satisfaction is the best. So try to be creative and make a list of things you want to do week by week.

img_0509

Baking. This might categorize as food but I still think it’s a bit different. During December you will stumble on a lot of Christmas decorations and a lot of Christmas music, the only thing that is missing is the baking! Start baking something that contains cinnamon and ginger! There are tons of recipes out there that you can try! Perhaps it’s time to skill up your baking skills? You will end up learning something at the same times as making something yummy. Isn’t that awesome?

Decorating. November is almost at its end and Thanksgiving is just around the corner. Usually, you wait until Thanksgiving is over until you start with the decorations but you know what? Who cares? If you feel like putting up your tree before that time, good for you! An early start might give you a small boost of Christmas spirit!

Candles. This might sound ridiculous but this actually helps. Scented candles is like therapy for me. Try to find Christmas scented candles for your home! My ultimate favorite is Apple Cinnamon Pumpkin from Bath & Body Works. Their candles are A.M.A.Z.I.N.G! They last for a long time too. I bought two candles from there years ago and it took two years to actually finish them off. Note that I didn’t use them everyday. I did light them up often though, mostly when I was taking a bubble bath. Ah, good times. You can find out more of their products here.

Lists. (yeah yeah my handwriting sucks eh) Don’t wait until the New Year starts to follow up with your New Years resolution, start today! Start making a list of things you want to do and accomplish. Also, keep track on your accomplished goals so that you remember them and feel happy about the outcome. Don’t forget to give yourself a pat on the back too.

Events. Are you good at organizing things and do gatherings? Perhaps you should start hosting your own events! Try to organize an event once a month with your friends. It could be a hangout at home playing board games or going bowling. It’s really up to you! Make a group chat/event on a platform and make it happen.

img_6966

Playlist. If you’re trying to get the Christmas spirit up, make sure to make a Christmas playlist on Spotify! (or any other platform you use for music) If you’re not into Christmas music then make a winter playlist of your favorite old and new music.


Movies. Last but not least, Christmas movies. The one I recommend the most is Home Alone. That one is a good nostalgic “Christmasy” movie. It always airs on tv close to Christmas and I love that movie so much. If you’re not fond of that movie no worries! There are tons more out there!

I hope this list gave you some inspiration of things to do during this cold and dark winter. Let me know if you’re already doing some of these things!

The Last of us…Part II – My reaction and thoughts

So PSX (Playstation Experience) was held last week and I couldn’t catch it due to the time difference and streaming schedule (boho) but I ended up reading some tweets, articles and found out some crazy new releases! One of them were The Last of us Part II! Insane hype indeed. I didn’t watch the trailer until recently due to wanting to record a reaction video. I must say, Naughty Dog…I want more.’

I don’t want to reveal too much of the reaction video so I am gonna paste it here for those who wants to watch it first. Although, I do want to go deeper into this teaster trailer. Of course we know about the ending at Part I but this teaser gave us a deeper message. (Spoiler alert) Forest, Firefly logo and then a “mini” village. At the beginning you don’t really understand the situiation but at the end when she says “I’m gonna find and I’m gonna kill, every last one of them” that’s basically her saying; killing all the fireflies. So she is for some reason gonna wipe them all. Not sure if it’s connected with the Part 1 game (perhaps a little at the end of the game) but that’s all we know for now. I also don’t know if she knows about the lie Joel said or not at the end of Part I. We won’t know until it’s out I guess. Overall with the teaser,  good job Naughty Dog for the tense and excting video. You guys did a great job.

Perhaps Naughty Dog might release a new teaser. We can always hope.
