At least it`s not boring! :p

You know how everyone`s has their own  people say when they`re giving you a compliment?  It`s always nice to get compliments in any way, shape or form- but no matter what I`m wearing, I`ll always be cute- that`s just how it is.. Even if I`m wearing all black, I`ll be just that- cute.. I love surprising a bit though, and when I applied for jobs a few weeks back, I probably applied to jobs in 14 stores that would suit me perfectly (all girly, cutsy stuff)- and 1 that was a bit odd in a way… I won`t write the name of the store here, but let`s just say that the clientele is mostly dancers of a certain type… They do have stuff for “regular” people as well off course, but what I noticed first is that the products are a tad bit different to what I`m used to:p Well, I went for trial this afternoon, and got the job, so now I`ll be working my little butt off in order to make some money:D Woop, woop, woop! 😀

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:)

Dup, dup, dupdidup, dup, dup, dup, dupdupdup! :D

“Today`s gonna be a good day!” 😀Tonight`s gonna be a good night

– Today started the best way possible, and after cleaning the flat for a bit (no offence boys, but whenever there`s a male majority in a household, this weird undefinable guy- smell just creeps in all over.. :s It`s extremely hard to get rid of due to the fact that I have no idea where the smell originates from, or what it actually is, but I`ve given it a shot today.. 🙂 My room/walk-in closet/bathroom is like an oasis in this guy- world, and smells “fresh” in Fraggles meaning.. ;p I think I`ll pick up some air freshener later.. Maybe that will put an end to this delightful odour? :p

Well, after a bit of cleaning, I looked through Siri`s album from this summer, and got a bit homesick.. Truly, it was the best summer ever- lots of laughs, fun, beer, bbq`s, talks into the night, and dancing like we`ve never danced before (“We no speak Americano… dup, dup, dupdidup, dup, dup, dup, dupdupdup” :p). I`m extremely happy these days, but when I look at my friends beautiful faces with the biggest smiles- I can`t help missing them…. But times sure flies, and we`ll all be together soon 😀

Tonight I`m having tapas & wine with my girls here- looking forward to a night of listening to oldies, eating yummy food, drinking some bubbles and laughing to my eyes get all watery! Yet another busy weekend ahead in party- central.. Luckely I`m doing quit oki when it comes to my assignments (and I have so many that I actually don`t have a single mid- sem xam- how great is that!! :D)- so I can have fun this weekend without feeling guilty:) Have a great weekend everyone!!

Concentrate much?

I`ve always thought of bringing my laptop to class as a smart idea- that way you don’t have to print out the lecture slides beforehand, and you can write notes etc…. Bringing your laptop to class is actually not smart.. AT ALL!! I`m now 2/3 into a workshop, and in that time I`ve managed to catch up with a friend on the fb chat, write several messages, plan a girls night, check my e-mail, fix my resume and now I`m writing in my  blog… :s The funny thing is that I sort of feel like I did when I was in middle school- writing notes in class and passing it to my friends around the classroom hoping that the teacher wouldn`t find out… Cheeky! :p I can`t help that I have a bit of a concentration problem? (or can I…?). It seems like I`m doing alright though- I`ve managed to finish my assignments in time, read for my quizzes etc… My study- style is  just more of a “read until you fall asleep even after you`ve had 10 redbulls because you`ve been reading for 4 days straight before an exam”- kind of girl… and it works great! 😀 Is masters really not harder, I keep thinking…. Is it the way I feel- just a continuation on the bachelor degree? Or is it just that I`m used to it by now, and find it easier? -(or is it actually really hard, and I`m going to be shocked in the weeks leading up to the final exams?). Hm- I`m hoping for the second:p The thing is that I actually quite enjoy my courses.. They`re all about events (like fashion shows etc), and it`s interesting as few! (yup, I did just write that… -again! haha :p).

I finally worked up the courage to check my bank balance- and omg- I need to get a job asap! I`ve applied a few places, but after uni today, I`ll take ML`s advice and print out like 1000 resumes, and hand them out everywhere in Aus Fair and Surfers… Hopefully I`ll find something quick! Ìt`s my last semester (again:p), and it would be quit sad if I don`t have money to do anything fun…. I still haven`t seen Sydney or Great Barrier Reef after 4 years! That`s shocking… :s I can always come back next year after I`ve been working up some money and actually have money to spend, but it would be nice to be able to at least afford a little get- away during mid- sem break in 3 weeks time… Something to look forward to:)

Well- I better starting paying attention to our lovely Aussie teacher… Who`s probably aware that I`m only glimpsing up at the powerpoint every few seconds to hide the fact that I`m not at all present:p

-Have a great day everyone! 😀

Suit up!

Last year the Norwegian TV series “Himmelblå” swept us all away, and now it`s “How I met your mother”. You know when it seems like everybody around you are saying the same frases- seems to get each other in a different way, and from time to time burst into laughter for no apparent reason….? I was hearing “Suit up”, “Really????”, “up top”, “nailed it” etc constantly- and never got it.. But after I started watching HIMYM a couple of weeks ago, it was like “AHA!- now I get it!”. I absolutely love this series- in every way possible:D It has the cool guy, the obsessive girl, the cool chick, the sweet guy, and the guy that never seems to get it right… Hilarius! The only problem is that I always want to watch just one more…. – and suddenly the whole days seems to have disappeared.. :s But oh, well- at least I`ve got sore muscles in my stomach after laughing all day! I`ll be fit as few in no time:p

Eple

Eple…. 😀 Whenever I`m supposed to remember a name, song, place, movie etc, the first (and sometimes the only) word that pops into my mind is Eple… (apple in Norwegian). When this weird thing started I don`t know, but it`s quit annoying! Specially when you`re supposed to come up with a name for you group in a class at uni where you`re supposed to come up with a great name for a hypothetical event…We decided to make a sustainable fashion event, and I can`t really call it “Apple”, can I? yet another one of my weird treits….;p  

-All black..

I`m a bit of a scattered person in some ways- always juggling too many balls in the air, trying my best to not drop a single one.. At the same time I love to just relax and enjoy my days, so it can be quit hard to manage to everything I have to/want to/need to do..:s As an attempt to be a bit more structured, I wrote down everything I needed to op ASAP last week, and today I just realised that I`ve actually done all of them… Woop, woop! 😀 Now I just have to read for a quiz I have next week, and then it`s time for weekend and good times:) Tonight it`s a “Funuralparty” ( not a real funeral, but two of or friends have decided to go back home mid- semester, so we`re going to have one last huge party in their honour- celebrating all the good times we`ve had here, and sending them off with lots of wished that they`ll find what they`re looking for:) So tonight we`ll all dress  in black, shades covering our eyes, and raising our glasses to two wonderful guys that will be dearly missed by us all.. 🙂

All Black (Good Charlotte)

All Black

Take a look at my life, all black
Take a look at my clothes, all black
Like Johnny Cash, all black
Like the Rolling Stones wanna paint it black

The night we met, all black
The colour of your dress, all black
The seats in my Cadillac, all black

As long as I could remember I dreamed in black and white
As I grew up and the sun went down I never felt more alright
My mother she use to tell me…Son you better get to church
And its a dark world and the people out there and you know its only getting worse
Never been much for weddings or anniversaries but
I go to a funeral if I’m invited any day of the week
Some people say I sound strange some say I’m not right
But I find beauty in this world every single night

Take a look at my life, all black
Take a look at my clothes, all black
Like Johnny Cash, all black
Like the Rolling Stones wanna paint it black

The night we met, all black
The colour of your dress, all black
The seats in my Cadillac, all black
I used to see red, but now just all black

I sat down at her table at the end of the night
She was having black coffee and a cigarette, she wasn’t wearing white
She said, people tell me that I am strange that I am not right
The only time I feel alright is in the dead of night
I think I found the one for me

Take a look at my life, all black
Take a look at my clothes, all black
Like Johnny Cash, all black
Like the Rolling Stones wanna paint it black

The night we met, all black
The colour of your dress, all black
The seats in my Cadillac, all black

I remember feeling so alive
The night I look into her eyes,
Take a look at my life..
