I finished my third exam today, and now I only have one exam left for this semester. Yey! :)

Yesterday I rediscovered my Flickr-account. I had totally forgotten about it, but when I found it I decided I should organize it and USE it from now on. Let's see how that goes...

Right now.

This is what my bed looks like right now:

This has been one of the best Saturdays in a long time. I have practically been living in my bed for all day, reading for my exam, crocheting, listening to music (Sånn ca House + Rebecca & Fiona – I Love You, Man + Souldrop – Prelude EP) and watching Private Practice <3

I listened to my favourite radio show, Christine, at my favourite radio station, for two hours, and she gave me tickets to their Christmas table next Friday!! I'm going to a celebrity party! Oslo, here I definitely come! I'm looking forward!

Exam is over us

You know you have an upcoming exam when... spend more time checking Facebook than you ever have. don't take the time to go to the gym. barely have time to eat.
...your reading or working breaks are going to the store for refills. get high from RedBull. are having a collection of simple pencil drawings.
...your room looks like a mess. spend way too much money on sweets, RedBull and food you don't really want. don't remember how your real life is supposed to be.

Oh, how we love exams <3

I wish for... Winter 2011/-12

This post is for Christine.

I could've put in a lot more wishes, like a sewing machine or some dresses, but I'm keeping it low budg for Christine, as we don't put too much money in our presents. After all, it's not about the money remember...

Sunday = Funday?


Every Sunday here in Sogndal, we take a bath in the Sognefjord. Today was my fifth time since August, and it's actually not as cold as you should think. Even though it's November, rainy and in Norway. There is snow on the mountains, and my bed is warm and cozy. But still. It's actually not that bad.

The rest of the day, I will be living in my bed just watching series :)

Massage = Check!

After a lot of stress and tension the last weeks, I decided to go for a massage to loosen up. I know there is someone here in Sogndal that does massages, but I decided to go to Hafslo, about 20 minutes by bus from here. I think it's good to come out from my daily environment sometimes as well, and even though it isn't far, it feels like a small trip anyway. 

The sun was shining today, and I was smiling. I was thinking about how this day is so typical what I like about the fall here in Norway. We wake up every morning, exited to see the weather (is it rain? Snow? Sun?) and to feel how cold it is outside. We put on our warm coats before we get out, but as the sun still feels a bit warm, we open it and enjoy every sunbeem we can get. There is a special charm about the fall.


Every time I go to a massage therapist, I feel like they can see into my soul. They feel my tension, my feelings, my subconscious, and the give me advice. Today she told me I was not nice enough to myself. I shouldn't try to always satisfy other's expectations to me. I should listen to what I need, and what I want to do, and do it more often. I hadn't had the best childhood, I have had some lack of love in my life. But the love I have been missing, I will transmit to others. I have some waste in my body, so I should try to drink a lot more water, and  slow down on the coffee. 

She is absolutely right.

And that's one of the things I like about massages. 

The rest of the day I will be relaxing, reading, listening to classical music, and dream about vacations in South-Africa and Asia.

I like...

...a long hot shower in the evening, followed by body lotion on newly shaved legs and blowing my hair dry with the hair dryer, while listening to the radio <3

My desktop

My motivation for saving money.
The lions on this picture are so cute I want to kiss them! As me and a friend of mine have been talking about going to Africa to work with wild animals there, mainly lions, I need to have a motivator for saving. I thought this picture was perfect. Can you imagine having these two close up, being able to touch them, smell them and kiss them? <3

I also like to have as little as possible on my desktop wall. It makes it easier to have an overview of what I need to do, and I don't think it's necessary to have all kind of programs that I rarely use, on my desktop wall. I here have only the programs I use, and the documents I need to finish or use often, and the folders that are most important. Actually, I see now that I can remove some of them...
