  • another day with a non-socialist government
  • listening to SR X
  • today’s BC
  • incredibly stupid spam offers constantly arriving
  • a couple of tickets for Ramel à la Carte next weekend
  • being healthy, having time and freedom to blog

thanks, fellow tax payers!

I study, therefore I am? Well, not exactly but it's certainly time well spent. It’s such a luxury really. A fairly well-paid guy at 45 with a sixteen year old exam chooses to take some additional university courses to enhance his career and the tax payers foot the bill. Tuition fees have been a non-issue in Sweden but this will have to change. I don’t mind being subsidized but I imagine there should be better ways for the state to spend our tax money.

The water looks distinctly green in this particular light.

last chance...
