Information overload:s

It`s the middle of studyweek, and the end of the semester is approaching.. Everybody`s cramming as much information as humanly possible into their heads, trying their best to keep it there until the day of the exam when all the information will be written down on paper with 2b pencil before it again disappears into nothingness like the studying never happened.. :p

People have very different ways of reacting in this stressful period- and most people seems to put on a different personality for these 2-3 weeks. Some people get super- stressed and spend their whole days from morning to-night at the library (-sometimes they even sleep there), some are relaxed as few until they discover that they`re far behind, and study 24/7 for the last few days, while others just kind of  “space out” until they`re done due to thought- overload.. 😉 I tend to be very calm about the whole thing, until I get a momentarily breakdown at some point in the middle of all the exams, wishing that I had read more.. It only last for a minute, but it`s still a horrible minute:s It`s stillearly, and so far my panic attach hasn`t showd it`s tearful face, but I`m sure it will come (maybe next week some time? :p) Until then, I`m blissfully aware of everything else that need to be done (aka clean the fridge, bake muffins, sort my clothes, get new music, clean the bathroom, make lasagna etc..), Well, I did stay at uni from 10-4 reading, so I`m not as bad as I seem, but you could always study just a little bit more.. Apparently I`m the type of person that studys a lot harder when people around me are studying since I`m the master of distractions, and without the good idea of dragging my butt up to uni to study, I probably would`ve been a lot further behind.. 🙂 Only 3 exams to go- and this time 2 weeks from now, I`ll be done and it will be time for celebration:D

But now, Vampire Diaries, then back to studying:D

My busy October.. :D

It`s been a while since I wrote last- and that`s due to a few different things:

– Like my dad always says, “no news equals good news”- cause when I`m just happy and content, I don`t have the same urge to blog every day (not so confused anymore;)

-I now have a new job that I really love- in a cafe at Pac Fair where I spend my days making wraps and salads, drinking coffee while talking to the nice girls I work with:) – So that worked out wonderfully! 😀

– October is, and has always been the busiest month of the year here in Surfers… With final assignments to be handed in, presentations, Octoberfest,  Scavenger Hunt, Indy and Halloween… It`s been a blast, but now I`m ready to open my books, and study for the next 3 weeks until my last xam 17.November:)

I know it`s not the healthiest way to stay awake, but caffeine is my friend.. 🙂 Without coffee, studying would be a lot different.. I intend to get through these next few weeks with good grades, working money on my account and a tan from reading by the pool- then, I`ll be ready for vacation:)

-That was my October! 😀

-don`t stress the small stuff.. ;)

It amazed me  how time passes..  Every time the clock ticks, another second has passed (then minutes, hours, days, weeks, month, years and so on), it`s just a bit fascinating that it passes so quickly no matter what you decide to spend your precious time on.. I arrived the GC kinda by chance- with the intent to stay for just about 3 months. Then I decided to stay longer for different reasons (even though some of them now have changed), and now it`s 4 years later.. Where did the time go? No matter what I decide to do with my days, how I`m feeling, or who I spend time with, time is still going to pass- tick by tick. And because of this, it`s important to live every day as if it was your last.. Feel every feeling, laugh every time you get the chance, and don`t stress the small stuff.. (off course it might be hard to decide what`s concidered to be small stuff- because it might seem bigger to some than others. Someone resently told be that niceness is special, and it shouldn`t be wasted on people who doesn`t return it…-I think there`s something to it:). Life is short- and time is the most precious thing we have, so we should spend time doing what we love with those who matter the most- the ones that make you happy, that makes you laugh, that you can learn something from, and that you feel safe with.. So even though some people decides to only walk along your path for a short period of time, there are many people that are happy to walk with you the rest of the way:)

-Treasure each moment

-follow your heart

-never stop dreaming

-be true to yourself and those around you.. 🙂

Embrace diversity

I meet lots of interesting people at my job that I probably would never have met anywhere else… Some are curious about the shoes etc, and walk around the store saying things like “Who would ever wear these? Look at them! hahahah” etc (if you think they`re so stupid, why walk in here in the first place?). Others just loooooooove everything, and dance around the store while trying shoes (sometimes they need the special edition sizes) before they leave the store as happy owners of a new pair:) I do like my job quite a bit mostly because of all the different people I get to talk to during my shifts 😀 ( but when it`s dead quiet the time passes by unbelievably slow, and the only thing I think of is how much uni work I could have done instead of cleaning shelves for the 10th time in an hour… Oh well, the money`s good though- so it`s all worth it in the end..).

People are different.. That`s what makes life so interesting! 😀 Everyone`s turned out to be the person they are due to a million different factors.. Genes from their parents and family, their childhood, how they were raised, the environment they grew up in (at home, their school, friends etc), and their personalities.. Everyone`s different, and it takes more than a first impression to really know or understand someone. People have a lot of different insecurities, and even the seemingly most confident girl or guy might act in a different way than what`s natural to them because they feel insecure in a way.. I admire people who dare to be themselves- even if it means showing their insecurities to the world..  Like many others, a million insecurities- but I`m aware of them, and believe that I handle myself quite well despite of them:) Like how I always seem to say what`s on my mind even though it might not make much sense to people unless they really know me (i.e. keeping lots of different conversation subjects going at the same time- and randomly jump between them…), how my surroundings seems to suddenly change several times a day which often results in me either dropping thing on the ground, or banging into things… I`ve already managed to bump my head into one of the glass shelves at work twice… Aouch! :p  -But hey, that`s me:D Our little quirks is what makes us different to each other, and even though some people might find your quirks annoying, I say let`s just be ourselves, and embrace diversity rather than wishing that we were different:)


I recon there`s two types of people in the world- the ones that have a positive outlook on life no matter what might come in their way, and the ones that look at the world in a more negative way.. I consider myself to be a positive person, and I know that no matter what happens, it will work itself out in the end. But when the end of the semester and the finals are approaching, and the assignment stress is building up, even I tend to forget my “everything will be oki”- attitude, and stress a bit.. I`m longing for the long, summer days I had in Norway in July…. Yesterday my computer “broke” (or something??), I have plenty of uni work in front of me, and even though I enjoy my new job, it seems like I`ll be working almost every day (even though only for 3-4 hours per shift)- which makes it harder to structure my tine.. Pressure:s Puh! Luckily I have a friend that know a lot about computers, so hopefully he can help me sort my dear PCKåre out, and I just need to lock myself in for a few days concentrating on my assignments and I`ll be fine.. Oki- better get to it then!

Good luck with assignments everyone- hang in there! Counting the days to I`ve handed in these two big ones, and I can catch up on some well- deserved sleep and enjoy having a social-life again… 😀

Magic and a tight bum:p

Well, now it`s on! 😀 I`ve finished the first couple of days at my new job- and I`m loving it! The girls I work with are really nice, the hours are good, and due to the exchange rate between AUD and NOK I`ll actually be earning quite a bit! So even though I`ll be as busy as ever  working as well as doing my masters and ANSA, (and be social from time to time as well), it will be worth it when I finally have some money to spend on shopping and adventures (rather than just nudes and goon…:p). I feel quite lucky actually, since I only applied for a couple of weeks and pretty much just randomly winded up here.. 😀 As a bonus I`m expecting on getting a tight bum- cause half the time I`m working, I`m running up and down the stairs to our storage room… Good exercise! :p Summer is getting closer, and the sun is shining every morning:) I wake up every day with a smile on my face for different reasons- and try to remind myself how unbelievable lucky I am… 😀 Now it`s almost mid- september, and even though I have two major group assignments due next week, I know I`ll be fine- cause things always works out exactly how it`s supposed to;)

Now I`m off to take a hot shower before I try to get some group work done.. Time sure flies, so no more lazing around watching the clock tick away! Nope- now I need to be structured as few- and with my dear ML as my idol, I know it`s possible:p

Oh- I just love this song! Check it out 😀

Magic Lyrics

(Chorus: RiverMagic youtube videos Cuomo)

I’ve got the magic in me
Everytime I touch that track it turns into gold
Everybody knows I’ve got the magic in me
When I hit the flow the girls come snappin’ at me
Now everybody wants a burst of magic

Magic, magic, magic
Magic, magic, magic
Magic, magic, magic(ahoo)
I’ve got the magic in me!

(Verse One)
These tricks that I’ll attempt will blow your mind
Pick a verse, any verse, I’ll hypnotise you with every line
I’ll need a volunteer, how about you, with the eyes?
Come on down to the front, and stand right here and don’t be shy
I’ll have you time-travellin’, have your mind babblin’
People tryna inherit the skill so they askin’ me
Even David Blaine had to go and take some classes, and
I see Mindfreak like, “What’s up man, what’s happenin’?”
So come one, come all, and see the show tonight
Prepare to be astounded, no Ghost or Poltergeist
You know I’m no Pinocchio, I’ve never told a lie
So call me Mr. Magic Man, I float on Cloud 9

(Chorus: Rivers Cuomo)
I’ve got the magic in me (I got the magic, baby)
Everytime I touch that track it turns into gold (Yes it turns to gold)
Everybody knows I’ve got the magic in me (I got the magic, baby)
When I hit the flow the girls come snappin’ at me (They be snappin’ baby)
Now everybody wants a burst of magic

Magic, magic, magic
Magic, magic, magic
Magic, magic, magic(ahoo)
I’ve got the magic in me!

(Verse Two)
Well take a journey into my mind
You’ll see why it’s venom I rhyme
Stay on the road, so I call my mama when I got time
I hit the stage, go insane, then jump into that crowd
See, see, when I rhyme I flow on the beat like pidda-dow-dow
See I decieve you with my intergalactic ether
I sing just like Aretha, so respect me like I’m Caesar
I kick it like Adidas, flowin’ sticky like adhesive
Be cautious, ’cause what I be on’ll leave you with amnesia
I break all the rules like Evel Knievel
It’s a spectacular show, ’cause my heart pumps diesel
So whatever you saying, it don’t entertain my ego
I do this everyday, Hocus Pocus is my steelo

(Chorus: Rivers Cuomo)
I’ve got the magic in me (I got the magic, baby)
Everytime I touch that track it turns into gold (Yes it turns to gold)
Everybody knows I’ve got the magic in me (I got the magic, baby)
When I hit the flow the girls come snappin’ at me (They be snappin’ baby)
Now everybody wants a burst of magic

Magic, magic, magic
Magic, magic, magic
Magic, magic, magic(ahoo)
I’ve got the magic in me.
I’ve got the magic in me!
