Tarde o temprano...las cosas se dan solas

Hola hola!!!

How's everybody??? :)

It's been a lot of time since I don't know much about all of you, and so you don't know much about me. Well the thing it's that I've been a little busy with school and work, but finally I found a break to say hello and keep you post.

Nowadays I'm studying a post grade on International Commerce and this month I will be celebrating my graduation on International Relations Bachelor. School has got harder. But, if everything goes well, I'll finish this year. That's why i won't make it to Sweden yet.  I'm sad about it, but I rather to finish with school first.

Other than that, I got fired from work. Yeap, it's kind of disappointing but I think it was the best decision for both sides. Some months ago, I started to think that I finished my process there and it was time to look for better opportunities, but I didn't want to quit job because it meant losing the money from my "labor settlement". Luckily they took initiative and now I will have the opportunity to work with something related to what I studied for and I will get the money! hehehe. So I'm now a job hunter hehe, just hope it' will come as soon as possible...I'm looking forward!

Being at home feels strange. I got used to go to work, then school, then home, then work, then school and then home every day of the week. Now that I have more time to myself, I don't know what to do with it, maybe some days at the beach, or just lying on the bed…lazy girl! I know but I now I needed this for a long time ago. And as the song says:

För det ordnar sig, det gör det alltid,

jo, det löser sig, så brukar allt bli,

det kommer fixa sig till slut,

det är inget tvivel om, fast nu känns skiten sur,

och flera mil ifrån, det ordnar sig.

So, what about you? Hope you all are just great. I really miss you all, and hope to see you soon. Here y let you some pictures from this last months...

Vive la France

Hi guys!
I just want to update you from my exchange semester in France! I really enjoy my stay here and the the school is very good. I study at SKEMA Business School which is a private high ranked university in France so I feel very motivated to be here and privileged to have got this chance.
You can read about my life at the French Riviera on my blog www.annariberth.com, unfortunately it is just in Swedish, but there are a lot of pictures to see :)
I miss you very much! Lots of love to you all!

Fofo på besök

A lot of things happend during that week. We atelot of food, good food, laughed and had a very cozy week itfelt like an extra vacation week for us even though we had started with our studies, we took the train to Copenhagen and Malmo, were we all were together (exept Olivia). Helene, Ivan, Marcus, Fofo and I went to a nature reserve and bathed, but Fofo never dared to jump in. The last night we went out, to a nation, a student place in Lund and showed how it usally is to party as a student. Here are some photos from the week.

Time to think about my life...

Hi everybody!


It’s been a long time without blogging…but I have to admit that I am always pending on what is happening here, it's just that I was a bit lazy-busy to sit down and tell you what have happened with my life.


In June I had my "school vacations" and they were pretty bored, more than I expected. My plans to clear my mind and travel a bit didn’t  go as I wanted, I had to work, so I stayed at home, resting in the little spare time and doing things, but close to Heredia.


The school semester started again and it’s currently a month and a half to finish college. It feels so weird, I do not know if I am really tired or semester is hard, but I feel it heavier than ever, and the anxiety does not help me finish it. I count the days to finish everything.


On the other hand I am very well, my family too, but no baby from my sister...buuuu! At this point I feel more desperate to be aunt than my sister and brother in law to be parent lol.


Another thing that steals my dream is what am i going to do with my life after university, I've thought about taking a postgraduate course at the university, although this option does not motivate me much, I've also been considering the idea of studying languages, I don't rule out to study another career or start looking for internships abroad or volunteer work, it would help a lot in my curriculum, I think the problem is all the options I have and I cannot decide for one. I also thought about leaving the nest, I think I'm starting to need my space and have my own apartment, but this option will depend a lot on what I’ll do with school and work, now I'm very happy with my work and that is another anchor point that I have ...


Returning to the updates, there's bad news, at least for those who remember my beloved Malpais band, Ivan could remember because once we went with Nella, Johan and my parents to a concert in Barva park. Well, the point is that the singer died in September. Fidel Gamboa who was also the composer of the group died at the age of 52 after giving a concert in Heredia and because of a heart attack. For obvious reasons, the group decided not to pursue more with Malpaís... sad!


But back again, happy to updates, this time I leave some photos of the Independence Day of Costa Rica and a ride some of the Ticos did to INBioparque, an institute that studies biodiversity and is also a kind of park of attractions.


This is the parade schools organized on Parque de Diversiones, on September 15th, they played really good music.

After the show it was time to have a little fun!

Some of the Ticos at InbioParque...


A big kiss to everyone! Hope to see you soon ...


Two weeks ago Fofo arrived to Sweden and most of us Swedes, well all of us except from Olivia that is abroad studying, took some time off so that we could travel down to Lund and Malmö to meet him! Frida took a lot of pictures from our days together so later she or Helene will blog about what we did these days. I just wanted to share a photo from when Fofo and I went to IKEA for some Swedish fika and shopping :) It was a great day!

A cup of tea in Mönsterås

Last Friday I visited Helene at her father's house in Mönsterås at the east coast of Sweden.  It was really nice to see her again and just have a little chat, have some barbeque, go for a walk and drink some tea with her boyfriend and sister. Unfortunately Frida couldn't come even though she had planned for it but I hope I will see her and the other Swedes and Fofo in August!!

What about you guys? What is happening in your lives? Tell me :) I still miss you.

May feelings in Växjö

Last weekend we had a reunion in Växjö and the only one missing was Karin, but for me who had missed so many of the past reunions it was great to see the others again, and a little strange. If feels like if the time has past so fast since that day in june in 2008, crazy. I realized that I have to better at keeping in touch from now on. And I have to be less stressed but there is so much to do with my bachelor thesis this last week :(

I hope everything is fine with you and I still think about you all a lot. Let us be better about updating the blog!
Hera are som pictures from the weekend.

När kommer du till CR???
As you see, I've been trying to learn Swedish ;) too bad it's not going so good and I can barely say a few words hehe. I promise I'll do it better next time...OH BABES!!! I miss you a lot, can't wait to see you again.
It's one month left for this semester at school and I am so happy :) My career is almost finished, soon I'l be free to do whatever I want. Life has changed a little, still working in the same place and still studying the same thing. The only thing has changed is, and I guess all you of you knew about it but just in case, that I broke up with Angel. Nothing left to say than I'm pretty fine now, feeling good and having a good life. But girls! I accept invitations to meet your snygging friends! huhuhu :)
The rainy season has come to Costa Rica, this part of the year reminds me of Sweden, it's cloudy, a little foggy and you can feel some freshness in the air, just like the first days in Stockholm. Well, I know here is just a fresh air, there it was an f*cking freezing air :P
My family it's been fine, my sister seems so happy with her new kind of life...the bad thing is that I don't see her so often anymore. At least I'm not so much at home, so I don't miss her that much.
My friend and I are still dreaming about going back to Sweden next year, but every time I try to start with a real plan something happens and I postpone it. I hope next month I'll make it, so I can save some money and be there to visit my lovely friends.
Today I'm going to meet Vero and Fofo, we are going to go for dinner or so...I don't even remember the last time we met. Too bad! So I'll tell you later how it went.
What about you???...
Hope you write back soon....
Pussar och kramar!!!

What happend the third year at the uni!

I just want to update you about what has happend in my life the last months... with some pictures. I can't believe this is my final semster at the Linnaeus University. Crazy, time has past so fast. I lovaeall of my friende here and the Campus life, even though I've started to look forward to come out to what we call "the reality" and start working, move to another town and do new things. But right now, I'm just trying to do the best of the time that is left. This week we started our thesis that we will work on for ten weeks, so now I'm really keeping myself busy!

How are you guys? Please put up some photos of your lives as well, I'm curious about what you are up to. I miss you, and I feel like coming back to Costa Rica soon, some day.

Hugs for all of you!

Imperial in Heredia one year ago

Do you remember that evening? I sure do, especially today, since it's my 23rd birthday and exaclty one year ago you all gave me my best birthday ever. Therefore I wanted to share some photos with you! I have not forgot about the blog and I will be better at updating it from now on... since I think it's so nice to read about what you have been up to as well!

Best birthday cake ever, thanks Marce's family :)

Un saludo navideño...


Hej Hej! Merry Christmas my lovely friends!!! And thanks to Helen for your pictures from the snow…brrrrrr, it seems to be cold in Sweden. Here it’s cold too, well it’s 16 degrees hehehe, but it isn’t usual for us… you know how it works here ;)


So I took a time to tell you a little about what is going on with me...


As I told you, I went to Panama with School. It was great!!! A very nice experience I would like to do again, but by airplane! 'cause 17hours sitting in a bus is not so nice for your ass...cri cri… :D


We had a meeting with the Chamber of Commerce of Panama, they gave us a conference about their economy and how it works in Panama, everything goes around services; the Panama Canal makes the country to live of logistics, imports and exports… We also went to the Canal and visited the locks. And of course, we also had fun!



My sister's wedding is getting closer, it feels weird, but we are very happy for her. By the way, I also have some pictures for her bridal shower…



I’m pretty fine, my family is growing old, as all of us I guess…my cousin’s son, Leo’s son, is two years old now, I remember at Falun when he told me his Wife was pregnant, now that small child takes all my energy every time I see him, he is sooo cute!!!



Some days ago I got my temporary driver’s license :) I’m so happy!!! Now, I have 3 months to practice a lot and then I’ll do like a “practical exam”, if I pass…then I’ll get my real drivers license, soooo, now Marce is on the road!


Well, now you know how I am...I miss you guys! Hope you all are fine...write back! or come back! that would be better :)


Puss puss y mucho amor!
