The best days of my life:D

My favourite places..

-My mum`s old, white kitchen table in the middle of her white dollhouse- like kitchen in Risør. We always drink tea, music from the radio in the background while talking for hours so we forget the time. Mum always knows what to say- no matter the problem or situation.. She listens until I feel completely empty, gives advice when I need it the most, or just talks from her own experiences which always makes me feel better…. 🙂

– On the couch with my sister and brothers. Even though there`s enough space, we sit closely together, giggling and laughing untill we almost fall on the floor. We see each other quite rarely due to the fact that we`re worlds apart, so when we due see each other we always have a lot of catching up to do:) I miss them all the time, and can`t wait to see them in a few months for Christmas:)

– The glass box:) Me and Caroline have used this box for everything throughout the years. This is where we`ve had our most important talks, best meals, funnest nights, and created memories that I`ll never forget no matter what:)`She`ll always be my bestes:)

-Stage Door dance studio.. I danced like 35 hours per week in my teenage years, and lived & breathed dance.. Me & Marie where inseparable for these years- dancing from sunrise to sunset every single day (and going to every single ballett and dance show possible around south Norway when we weren`t in class ourself).. When we turned 18 I moved to Oslo and she to Fredrikstad to go for our dream, and even though we stayed close friends, the era as dance- buddies was sadly over.. We`ve spent long nights quizzing each other in ballet terms, and stretching until our muscles were sore! These were the best days of my life… 🙂

– Lillebergsvingen.. The white couch there is the softest ever, and has probably 100 pillows in different shapes and sizes which makes it feel like sleeping on a cloud.. 🙂  Two of my dearest friends live there and no matter where I`ve been or what happens in my life, I always seem to come back to their couch from during my stays at home:)

– The white sandy beach in Surfers Paradise. The fine-grained sand under my feet, the sun on my face, the sound of the waves rolling in over the sand, the gentle breeze in my hair.. Wherever I wind up through out my life, I will never forget this amazing feeling of freedom..

– Ringshaugstranden- so many memories from this beach in Toensberg.. Whenever I felt confused or sad growing up, I went for a walk on the beach with my dog- feeling the wind on my face while looking into the clear water. This beach os busy as few during summer, with kids laughing and screaming, and sea gulls chirping as they fly above you.. It`s not the most beautiful beach in the world, but a walk there always lightens my mood.

 -My dad`s high kitchen table with high chairs. When I`m home, we always sit there drinking his delicious “pappakaffe” (aka dad- coffe- seriously- it needs to be tasted!). The high chairs makes me feel like a little girl again, and even though I`m very aware that I`m in my mid- twenties, it feels nice to just be a little girl again- even just for a minute:)

Congrats to my favourite `Vinkelanke`- couple!

I`ve known you both since we were young and didn`t understand

and you`ve always been there to lend a helping hand

Because you two together make the perfect team

and you`re actually as truly perfect as you seem

You`re there for your friends ever step of the way

whenever we need you- be it night or day

I`m so unbelieveble proud to be your friend

The teacher and lawyer- I`ll be here for you until the end

The last few years we`ve been far apart

but I`ve always felt close to you both in my heart

You`re two of the very best people I know

and I know you`ll always continue to grow

`Cause love like yours are rare and true

that`s why I`m so glad you`re going to say “I do” 🙂

-Lots of love from your friend forever, Sinus ❤

SMILE:D

Everything’s coming together…. 😀 After months of wondering what, when, where, why, who, which & how- it’s finally getting sorted. My name is finally changed back- (‘Greenvalley’- woop, woop!! :D), I bought a (very cute & cheap) laptop yesterday for uni, I managed to enrol in the course I need, it seems like we’ll be getting the flat in Genesis (hehe- then we’ll be occupying 4 flats in this amazing building we call home.. Why don’t we just get our own floor??;p), most of the family have now returned- and the rest will be here this weekend, so it’s going to be a great weekend! 😀 It’s just one of those days.. I woke up with the biggest smile knowing that the day is going to be amazing (even though there are still things to do, and I’m tired as few after lack of sleep)- thankful for each and every single little event that has let me to where I am right now… Every person I’ve met, every course I’ve taken, every talk I’ve had, every feeling I’ve ever felt has led me to where I am right now– back at Genesis, doing a Masters surrounded by some of the best people in the world..Yup, this is going to be my best semester ever! 😀

Thankful.. <3

Summer.. :)

I have the ‘The Voice’ in the background, and the Norwegian song ‘Sommerflørt’ (summerflirt) was just on. It’s a summersong from a few years ago that’s not particularly good, but it’s Norwegian and summery, so I’ll toss it in here anyways 😉
Sommerflørt (Philip feat. Sandra).
Kan du ringe meg opp, når du får tid
Jeg vet du ikke har glemt at jeg var din favoritt
Så jeg venter at du ringer opp
Og tar deg tid til å møte meg igjen
Og håper at det vil bli noe mer enn en sommerflørt

Ikke misforstå, jeg har ikke lyst til å gå
Men jeg må gjøre mine ting, kan sikker ringe deg opp
Jeg var sammen med en dame, vi er ikke sammen lenger nå
Så jeg vet at du tenker hva jeg tenker på
Møtte deg i sommer, du var nydelig å se på
Du er så søt når du ler, så
Vi stod ved et bål, du sto på andre sida
Jeg så på deg hele tida, og du var så sinnsykt fin, ass
Du sa: “Kan du følge mæ heim i kvæld?”
Det er en av siste dagene i sommerferien
Litt sjenert, dreiv å mumla litt frem og tilbake
Før jeg spurte deg om nummeret ditt

Kan du ringe meg opp, når du får tid
Jeg vet du ikke har glemt at jeg var din favoritt
Så jeg venter at du ringer opp
Og tar deg tid til å møte meg igjen
Og håper at det vil bli noe mer enn en sommerflørt

Skulle ringe deg, eller sende en mail til deg
I verste fall sende et brev til deg
Har et brev på vei, pluss en sms (sms)
Men kanskje du behandler meg som hvem som helst
For du har glemt alt, nei, kanskje du ringer
Nei, kanskje bare meg som er så usikker
Vedder for at du liker masse oppmerksomhet
Det gjør alle jenter, så jeg skrev et vers om det

Kan du ringe meg opp, når du får tid
Jeg vet du ikke har glemt at jeg var din favoritt
Så jeg venter at du ringer opp
Og tar deg tid til å møte meg igjen
Og håper at det vil bli noe mer enn en sommerflørt

Når som helst, bare si en tid
Og når du kommer, ikke ta med deg venninna di, vær så snill a
Når som helst, vi kan ta en kveld, (ssss), vi kan ta en helg
Til å ta igjen, så sjekke ut hva vi har igjen
Etter det, ikke noe hastverk, slapp av
Dette er en bil og du bestemmer farta
Tror jeg mister all balansen, men synet av
deg får øya mine til å danse

Kan du ringe meg opp, når du får tid
Jeg vet du ikke har glemt at jeg var din favoritt
Så jeg venter at du ringer opp
Og tar deg tid til å møte meg igjen
Og håper at det vil bli noe mer enn en sommerflørt
