The New Job!

So then I’ve finished my first week at the new job in Sweden, I’d say I had fun 😁. It’s been so long since I had a trailer after the truck I’m driving so remembering how to reverse with it was interesting to say the least, Also remembering that the trailer cuts across in junctions and roundabouts.

Too bad I ended up driving Volvo again, I want a Scania 🤣

But overall it came back pretty quickly and the route I’m driving started going better everyday, I was so nervous when I embarked on this route the first time since I only got a crash-course in what all the buttons in the truck do and where to load up and unload, then it was just to head out all alone 😂. My boss and the colleagues I’ve had contact with seem like decent people 😊.

My shift ended early on friday morning, The weekend has consisted of hockey WC, good friends and good food.

Rib meat burgers basted with garlic grilloil in brioche buns 😋

Today I’ve just been taking care about some stuff around the apartment like washing clothes, getting my printer to work again and I mowed the lawn for the first time since winter. In an hour or so I’ll start making my way to the ferry to start my second week😁.

P.S. I don’t know why but the webserver I’m renting is incredibly slow and uses outdated PHP, but I’ve paid for a year already so when 2020 comes around I’ll probably migrate to a new host.

Hi all.

So yesterday I resigned from my current company, after almost a year of searching jobs and pulling every string available to me it finally happened. it’s gonna sound cheesy but I’ve not been very comfortable in my job for the last years.

Only 4 more trips to Stockholm in this truck

Now it’s set up so I quit on the 30th April and have a few days off (Hopefully the same weekend as the world championship in men’s ice hockey 😂 ), At the beginning of May I get to start my new job in Sweden of all places.

Speaking of the hockey world championship (RANT WARNING), That final game between Finland and the USA in the women’s WC was so badly managed I don’t even know what. The decision on the “winning goal” was in no way justified, how can the goal be rejected but the opposition’s goalie gets a penalty? 🤔
There are two ways that could have played out:

  1. The goalie is penalised as it were, but then the goal should have been approved and the game over.
  2. The Finnish player is penalised for goalie interference and the goal is rejected.

But what actually happened was some kind of amalgamation between the two, seeing as they penalised the US goalie but also rejected the goal? Also, the IIHF representative almost literally said “shit happens, deal with it”.

She’s probably thinking the same thing as me,
“I haven’t seen such bad judges since the Sochi Olympics

All my heart goes out to the women’s “Leijonat” and hopefully we’ll get some decent judges next year.

In other news 😂, Last saturday I went to Sweden for my personal start of the airsoft season. It was tons of fun after having literally nothing to do all the long winter 😂, too bad I had to use the M4 instead of the AK because the battery for the AK didn’t hold a charge for more than 15 minutes (should have tested it a bit earlier than the day before…).

My gear hasn’t changed much since last year, but I’d really need to get a new chestrig

I also banged my knee straight into a rock, I don’t know exactly when it happened but I suspect that one time when I came up to our flag on a hill, saw one of my teammates coming towards me with his deadrag out and suddenly I saw an enemy player downhill aiming at me. I took a nosedive and crawled backwards a bit into a depression to get away from the enemy fire. I tried taking a few potshots at him, but alas there was two more in the vicinity. After the game when the muscles in my knee cooled down I started limping and limped all the way back home 😂, So lucky that I have an automatic gearbox in my car and yes I should be wearing kneepads and from now on I will, too bad they didn’t show up before yesterday 😐

“Every Man Dies, Not Every Man Lives” -William Wallace

It’s been a while again… Mostly alot of work per ususal. I’ve been acting as temporary manager last week while our boss was on vacation and it’s been a mess.

The beginning of the week went pretty smoothly, just a few moving jobs and some office work. Enter thursday and hell froze over, Me and my cousin was packing one truck for a move to Gothenburg(Göteborg), Sweden with time pressure ’cause we started loading the truck at half past eight and had the ferry to Sweden booked for 13:30 and the office phone rang constantly.

Well we made it to Sweden and drove eight hours down to the hotel that was just a few kilometres from the destination. Friday was just as stressful, we started waaaay early cause we had no idea how the apartment and surrounding area looked like, suffice to say both of us lost hope of making it to the last ferry on friday when we saw the place. But we managed to solve the problem and we actually finished early, so we made our way back towards the ferry and had time for a break in Norrtälje. Smart as I am I got myself a parking ticket there since they’ve change the rules on that parking so no trucks are allowed.

Saturday was time to depressurize, we did almost nothing all saturday. Woke up way late in the day and went over to our colleague for a coffee and to see her puppy that she picked up in Finland in the beginning of the week.

My colleagues pup

To be honest I’m a bit jealous right now because I’m not allowed to have pets in my apartment.

The rest of the saturday was pretty dull, made food, had a few beers and I actually streamed for a few hours.

Thats pretty much it for now, I actually snapped a pic of the volvo for you, not much to see but it’s something.

My latest ride and yes it’s dirty and the paint is horrible.

First Time Airsofting!

Hiya!

So I went airsofting for the first time today, Had to get up early to catch the boat over to Sweden. We warmed up with a Team Deathmatch with instant respawn and then played two games á 45 minutes of what they called Clocks.

The way Clocks works is similar to Conquest in Battlefield, We used three chess clocks to mark the time each team had held the three objectives.

Unfortunatley I had to cut the last game a bit short because it started drizzling and my goggles fogged up instantly.

Overall I’d say it went pretty well, I felt like I got the gist of it and maybe I died a few times too much, but in my defense they had two professional teams on-site today.
