Have you got any other alternatives to these words? The next words in majuscule seem tricky to me, could you please propose some others? 1) The area is PACKED with people in designer sunglasses SOAKING UP the autumn sunshine. 2) Our repeated efforts to arrange interviews with young, wealthy Swedes PROVED tricky 3) You could say that Scandinavia just found a buzzword that fits and SUMS IT UP better than anyone else 4) I have a feeling that it will COME ACROSS AS BRAGGING, which unfortunately I don’t feel comfortable with 5) Jantelagen, which promotes the idea of never thinking you are better than anyone else and CALLING OUT those who break this norm. ______________ Thank you for your time!

Here are some alternates, but these sentences are perfect as they are. 1)The area is crowded with people in designer sunglasses taking advantage of the autumn sunshine to tan their skin 2) Our repeated efforts to arrange interviews with young, wealthy swedes turned out to be tricky 3) You could say that Scandinavia just found a buzzword that fits and explains the situation completely better than anyTHING else 4)I have a feeling that it will seem like I am being arrogant, which I do not feel comfortable with 5) Jantelagen, which promotes the idea of never thinking you are better than anyone else and holding accountable/ shaming in public those who break the norm.

1. Filled, crammed, loaded/basking in, absorbing. 2. Resulted in being, ended up being, was ultimately. 3. ? 4. Be seen as boasting, considered self-promoting. 5. Exposing, bringing to light. By the way, this is not a complete sentence.
