Swedish girl here :P

Hello everyone..
An introduction right?
I live in Sweden, 18 years old, and the name is Frida (like the nick name of that girl in ABBA, if you know who they were..). I really like cooking, and experiment a lot while doing it. Sometimes it turn out quite good, and sometimes.. well sometimes it doesn't ;)
The main reason why I joined here is because I'm doing a project in school, concerning cooking and many things around it, so it did seem like a good idea. And you all seem to have great tips.

Anyway, that's me

you know Swedish girl, I happen to know some of your culture and the women don't come across like you do......... so you're not going to mind if I have grave doubts about your origin and if I'm wrong I really do apologize.........forgive me............

they don't come across as I do? What's that supposed to mean?
I can assure you that I really do live in Sweden, and my parents are pretty much as Swedish as anyone can get. I live in the southern part of Sweden, near a town called Karlskrona. Very beautiful town, a popular place for Germans and Danes to go to in summertime. Just by the coast, (it's actually built on several islands) with an amazingly beautiful archipelago.

If you want I can even give you a translation in Swedish of what I just wrote..

De liknar inte mig? Vad ska det betyda?
Jag kan försäkra dig att jag verkligen bor i Sverige, och mina fölädrar är ungefär så svenska som man bara kan bli. Jag bor i södra delen av Sverige, nära en stad som heter Karlskrona. Väldigt vacker stad, ett populärt ställe för tyskar och danskar att åka till på sommaren. Precis vid kusten, (den är faktiskt byggd på flera öar) med en otroligt vacker skärgård.

Now, if that's not Swedish, then I don't know what is :)
Btw, I hope you do realize that not every woman in Scandinavia acts the same way. Hope I erased your grave doubts now :)

My mom's parents were born in Sweden. I have always wanted to visit Sweden and hope I will have the chance someday.
