Mellanoveckan Diary, Day 7
Postat den 22 augusti 2009 kl. 12:16
We woke up at half past nine as we went to sleep at 4 o’clock in the morning. We were in Stockholm City all night long. We are so tired now. We didn’t do the yoga today because we woke up too late, the yoga was at half past seven. We took our breakfast quickly because at 10 o’clock Pierre was going to . Pierre is a famous grafitti artist from Stockholm, he’s a betweenshipper as well because his father’s from Greece.
When Pierre arrived, we spoke all together about our painting and we put the plastic and the paper on the wall. Each one has his own paper to paint on it. The size of the whole paper is 2 meters x 1, 50 meters.
We painted for 5 hours, from 10 am to 3 pm, and took lunch quickly at 12. When we finished all of us were really happy because it was the first time for most of us to do this kind of painting. Pierre was really happy as well. This activity was very interesting because each and every one expressed his/her opinion on betweenship in painting instead of just words.
At 3 pm all of us went to sleep as we were so tired. We slept during one hour and at 4.30 we went to the stadium of Alby to play a football match against the Swedish team. Frida organized this match. A cousin of Frida's and his friend played with us. We played 7 against 7. At the beginning we were losing 3 – 1, but in the end we won at 5 – 4. It was a wonderful and amazing match.
We finished the match at about 6.30. We played for 2 hours. When we finished, all of us were too thirsty so we went to the shop to buy some drinks and a cake for Frida’s birthday. We came back at home at about 7.30. It was nice because there were a lot of people there. We washed quickly and we were ready at 8 o’clock for the party. The party was at home and was better than the other parties out in the nightclubs.
There was so much food, very good people, music and a good dancing also. We joked a lot during the party and spoke about our week. The party was finished at about midnight. After that some of us went to the city to continue the party in the bar where Nathan was DJ-ing. The other people stayed at home because they were so tired.
This week was prefect. It was really interesting to see the different viewa and opinions about betweenship. Our conclusion is that: it’s a big pride to have 2 identities. For us 1 + 1 = 3 : because with our two identities we are stronger than if we had only one.
