    Aaand, as you said in some other posts, the situation with the refugees and non-European immigrants is much worse in Sweden than in Norway.

    I can say I've been in all three Scandinavian countries, Norway, Denmark and Sweden, and I definitely feel the best in Norway! Denmark seems so plain to me... I don't really like landscapes without mountains or at least some heights... And Norway has the best Nature, it has both mountains and the sea!

    Language is a bit weird, you say? To me, who I am not a native speaker of Norwegian, Swedish sounds like a Norwegian dialect. And to me Danish sounds much weird than any Norwegian dialect. It's not easy with the dialects... but if you're a native speaker of Swedish it shouldn't be such a big problem for you, I think you would adapt much easier than I do.

    So... in 10 years from now... I hope I'll master the Norwegian language and I'll also have Norwegian citizenship. Of course, a happy family, as mentioned in the previous post, and a wonderful home, in a wonderful place, to live in happily with my husband. I'll be having the happiest marriage, even happier than in fairytales. And wisdom, much wisdom. And the greatest spiritual realizations too. I'll be living blissfully in love and harmony.
    And... I also hope I'll be painting again...

    I guess I could adapt it in 6 months (someway) .... if staying in Norway. The Norwegians I have met have been able to follow my Swedish (dialect what we speak here) quite okey, but I have had bigger challenger to follow their speeches.

    Oh, so you are ''hunting'' a Norwegian man there now? LOL.

    No, I'm not hunting anything or anyone, Finnish Swede.

    I'm vegetarian, and "vegetarian" means "bad hunter".

    By the way, I can understand Swedish better than some Norwegian dialects, it seems easier to me.

    Well Finland's Swedish is someway even more easy to follow than standard Swedish etc. as we pronounce all the words bit like Finns talking Finnish ... very clearly and as they are written. Nope, it's not the pretties sounding dialect of Swedish but for some people quite easy to follow.

    Here's one sample of Finland Swedish dialect (she is speaking it):


    Personally I can speak more like ''Swedish ways'', if I want, but not normally/naturally. Still my mom says that if I'm staying bit longer in Sweden I will unconsciously change the way I talk. I guess I have it someway ''in me'' .... because of my dad and Swedish relatives (I have met them since kids).

    I'm just re-reading this thread and wondering how many predictions (some from as long back as 2005) actually came true?

    I also noticed while reading newspapers that the Finnish version of Swedish is still more closely to the language reform, rather simple and short sentences and more "active" formulations (while real Swedish is ridden with "passive" grammar forms).

    In spoken dialects I find the ones from the far north (Värmland or everything north of Umeĺ or so) for some reason easier to understand than Rikssvenska or worst of all, the "Danish" dialects with turbo-speaking in Skĺne / south. No way to follow that as a none-native^^

I hope to acquire a property in the country side and some farm animals, to have a little garden and grow my own vegetables, fruits and herbs.
    I've to revisit what I said because now I'm closer to achieving this goal so I'm feeling a little bit more positive about it. I'm now married and we're planning on having at least one child. We're in the process of moving to our own house soon, after we've done some reparations and renovations to make it more livable. I'm not as much bent on migrating as I was 10 years ago, especially because things in Germany and the West seem to have worsened while in my region there have been some booming German businesses which attracted the migration of other Germans to my area, so I see a revitalisation of the German communities here in future.

    I don't know if I'll get a job by then. It depends whether I'll have children not old enough for school yet or get pregnant again. The son I have will be old enough to go to school. But I'd prefer not to work and dedicate myself to the education of my children exclusively. I definitely want to have more children.
    For me most of this came true. I've had two more children since I wrote in this thread, so three in total. But I'd like to have at least one more. I'm 29, so not exactly the young mother anymore. My biological clock will probably start ticking in a few years, so I want to take advantage of the fertile years I have left. The more time passes, the more the fertility rates decline, so it's ideal to have children as early as possible. I'm not working and I'm glad I'm not, this way I can be around my children and focus all my efforts on them and on my husband. A lot of people encourage me to "do something with my life" in the sense of getting a career, but honestly I'm not interested. Also, since homeschooling is banned in Germany, it's important for me to be involved in my children's education at home and scrutinize what they're being exposed to. It's important for parents to be involved in their children's formative years. I wouldn't like my children to be infected with too much liberal nonsense, and I will happily sacrifice any commercial, corporate career for that matter. Being a wife and a mother is what fulfills me, this is my true "career", I don't envy those 40 something, dried up women who wake up and realize they aren't happy because they lack a family. The one thing I'm not that happy about is the degeneration of my nation, but it looks like people are starting to wake up gradually. The liberal, individualistic nonsense has become far too exaggerated and people are starting to get fed up.
