9 Things to be Thankful for Before You go to Bed at Night

20 Jan

It’s Thursday again, and time for another post! : ) Today I’m doing a list post. It is important to think about what is good in your life and your day, and a lot of people write diaries about all the things they are thankful for that day. That way, you go to sleep all happy, and chances are you’re going to wake up happy too.

So these are some of the smaller things that normally go unnoticed, but if you think about it, it does mean a lot.

Here are some of the things I am really happy about in my day today:

1. Waking up refreshed and knowing there is still quite a while until I have to go to school, and I can get ready without any stress is great. I’m thankful that I have this opportunity on Thursdays.

2. I am thankful for my boyfriend. He is such a sweetie, and he does so many little things for me, and I don’t know what I would do without him.

3. I am thankful for having a teddy bear and a blankie to hug in bed and an alarm clock that does not make the normal annoying sound that make you end up hating it. I love my alarm clock.

4. I am thankful for showers and warm water. I sometimes (actually most of the time) take it for granted, but some people actually don’t have this opportunity, and they are so missing out.

5. I am thankful that I have a family who, despite that dad is working far away and is only home in the weekends, and all other faults, stay close together, and love each other.

6. I’m thankful for people who say smile and say “thanks” in a nice tone when you hold the door for them.

7. I am thankful for having a lovely little black ball of fur to welcome me with a wagging tail and butt when I come home.

8. I’m thankful for my bed. Humans spend 1/3 of their life in bed, and I’m thankful that I have a cute, nice little twin bed, with a soft mattress and nice comforters to wrap myself into.

9. Lastly today, I’m thankful for cereal. For breakfast, lunch, or a snack before I go to bed. I could even eat it for dinner. It’s one of the best things ever. Especially that Special K thing with Red Barries.LOVE

10. …

I leave a black spot for #10 because I want you to fill out, in the comments section, what you are most thankful for today, whichever day you read this.

And if you don’t comment, at least just think about what would be on your “thankful”-list before you go to bed.

New Year’s Resolutions. We all have them, don’t we?

13 Jan

So, we all secretly make ourselves a little mental list of all our new year’s resolutions. And we all secretly know that we’ll never achieve them. I have a little list of my own. I started a competition with my dad, first one to get a six-pack. The one who loses has to buy clothes for the winner for 400 NOK. So naturally one of my new year’s resolutions is to work out every day. Another one is to do a couple of yoga exercises every day so I won’t get neck pains. It helps against the pains I have because of tense muscles, and it helps me de-stress and reenergize. I personally think yoga should be a class in school. I bet student’s grades will become much better. Anyway, that’s beside the point. Another new year’s resolution I made myself was to work on holding my body properly. Shoulders back and down, and head properly held straight above your shoulders and not several inches in front like a hunchback : P And lastly, probably the first one I won’t be able to keep – never put anything down in a place where it doesn’t belong. Actually, I’ve already failed that one. But the point is to get better and more tidy, right, and as long as I’m improving that’s what really matters right? Oh, and obviously the postaweek2011 challenge. These are the “official” ones anyway. The only problem with all of these is that I either didn’t start until just a couple of days ago, and not on the actual January 1st, or, I didn’t even come up with them until a couple of days ago. Next year I think my new year’s resolution will be “to make no new year’s resolutions.”

So, what are your new year’s resolutions? And how are those coming along?

I’m posting every week in 2011!

12 Jan

I’ve decided I want to blog more. Rather than just thinking about doing it, I’m starting right now. I will be posting on this blog once a week for all of 2011.

I know it won’t be easy, but it might be fun, inspiring, awesome and wonderful. Therefore I’m promising to make use of The DailyPost, and the community of other bloggers with similiar goals, to help me along the way, including asking for help when I need it and encouraging others when I can.

If you already read my blog, I hope you’ll encourage me with comments and likes, and good will along the way.

Zahra (10) vant over kreften – nå er hun død

Zahra (10) vant over kreften – nå er hun død

Funnet nedgravd etter å ha vært savnet i en måned

(VG Nett) Zahra Baker kjempet og vant kampen mot både beinkreft og lungekreft. Så forsvant hun.

Tiåringen ble meldt savnet fra hjemmet sitt i North Carolina i USA 9. oktober i år. Siden det har ingen sett henne.

Politiet har jaktet intensivt på spor etter Zhara og fredag kveld, norsk tid, sa de på en pressekonferanse at de hadde funnet den lille jenta død.

– Jeg har gruet meg til dette øyeblikket helt fra tidlig i etterforskningen. Vi har funnet nok fysisk bevis til å tro at vi har funnet Zahra, sier Tom Adkins, politisjef i Hickory i North Carolina, ifølge Ap.

Han la til:

– Alle som har jobbet med denne saken er knust, fordi vi ikke klarte å finne Zhara i live. I dag sørger samfunnet, delstaten, nasjonen og hele verden.

Det er foreløpig usikkert hva som har skjedd med jenta, men hun skal ha vært gravd ned da hun ble funnet.

Amputerte beinet

Før hun forsvant, skal Zahra ha hatt det tøft.

Tiåringen, som egentlig er fra Australia, skal ha fått beinkreft da hun var bare fem år gammel, ifølge AP. Da måtte hun amputere det venstre beinet og fikk en protese i stedet.

Få måneder senere fant doktorene svulster i lungene hennes. Hun måtte ha cellegift og den førte til at hun mistet mye av hørselen.

Før hun var syv år kjempet hun altså mot to aggressive sykdommer – og vant mirakuløst over begge.

Likevel skal tiåringen ha vært full av pågangsmot og inspirert andre barn som hadde samme sykdom som henne. Kim Wright, en kvinne som skal ha kjent tiåringen godt da hun bodde i Australia, fortalte at de møttes for noen år siden på en innsamlingsaksjon for kreft. Wright satt i en stol og skulle få barbert av seg alt håret, da Zahra tok henne i hånden og sa hun ikke skulle være redd.

Fant benprotese

Da Zhara var blitt frisk, flyttet hun og faren fra Australia til North Carolina i USA for å bo sammen med jentas nye stemor.

Der fikk lokalsamfunnet sympati for den lille jenta og arrangerte en innsamling, slik at hun fikk råd til et høreapparat.

9. oktober meldte stemoren og faren at Zahra var forsvunnet. Litt senere fant politiet en beinprotese bare noen kilometer unna huset der jenta bodde.

– Pasientjournaler fra Australia, hvor beinet opprinnelig ble laget, matcher serienummeret på beinet, sa Hichory-politiet til AOL News.

– Fikk aldri sagt farvel

12. oktober bestemte politiet at de skulle etterforske saken som et mord, selv om de ennå ikke hadde funnet tiåringen.

Zahras biologiske mor har ifølge flere aviser ikke sett jenta siden hun var åtte måneder gammel. Moren har sagt hun har lett etter datteren lenge, men at hun selv før politiet fant henne, var sikker på at datteren var død.

– Jeg fikk ikke sagt farvel, sier hun.

The Black Cat. It’s a art gallery/workplace where my moms friend, Anita Hanch-Hansen Fjeldhaug, and my mom make their art. My mom makes porcelain bowls and cups, really pretty, Anita makes everything else; jewelry, angels, clowns, paintings, you name it. You can see for yourself the beautiful art in the slide show. They make great gifts : ) (Just a little Xmas tip:P)

For de av dere som skulle lese dette og bo i Norge, sjekk ut facebooksiden, og ta gjerne kontakt med Anita gjennom facebooksiden, eller for all kontakt meg i kommentarfeltet eller på mail. Hun har åpent galleri hver dag, og til jul skal hun ha jule.. hva heter det for noe.. edit: julegalleri? Juleåpent? Julemarked. Det er en samling av forskjellige kunstnere som kommer til Anita og setter opp boder i hagen hennes til jul. Litt sånn messe aktig. Kjempekoselig iallefall, så bor du i nærheten, gå ikke glipp av det! Gå ikke glipp av det uansett hvor du bor ;P (this was just some info you have no need of knowing unless you live in Norway really, but if you really want to know what it says, there’s always google translate. :P )

Lots of great art, just check it out!

I love short days in school

2 Nov

Especially when they are followed by tightly knit programs. But really, sleeping in an hour and a half more today really helped. And I only have two courses. I|m currently in my last one – Spanish. And I got a browniepoint because Mads and I were the only ones who had listened to the hw given last class and done it. Yay. So after school, I’m going to work, and then I am going home to eat and study math (binary systems and stuff, I don’t understand it…) and then I’ve got my beloved skating practice, then Grey’s Anatomy is on, and then I’m going to bed. ^^

What’s your day like?
