I never know what to title my posts

So if anyone has any great ideas to creative title, please let me know.

But that was not what I was going to say. I was going to say that I had such a nice start to my day. First of all, I’m off school. However, I couldn’t sleep in because I was stupid enough to miss my bus yesterday, the bus to where I work. I clean. It’s quite interesting, just ask someone you know who once had a cleaning job. Anyway, so I had to go clean this morning at 8. Then I had to walk home, but it was okay. I enjoyed it. And then I stopped while I was walking alongside a field of something, I’m not sure cause it’s all gone now that winter’s coming up. And lately I have realized that I really want a Whippet. Check out this link to check out some breeds 101. The Whippet is there, that’s how I started really liking them when I saw this short film. So when I stood there looking over the field I pictured the whippet, my whippet – a girl, running from one end in 35 mph just going swoosj! and then she’s on the other side of the field. It was just nice to stand there doing nothing. And then I walked the rest of the way, trying to notice new things on the otherwise so well-known road. I found a couple new things I hadn’t noticed before. Then I wasted time at the computer, and then Mads came over, and we walked back to that place and just stood there on the end of the field, doing nothing. And then we walked back when it started raining. It was nice. And then we did hw, and now we are going to eat dinner.



Fall Break is Finally Here!

…And I’m not relaxing for a second. I’ve got a week off school, but I might as well not have been. It was a busy busy week right before the break (how come ALL teachers want big assignments and tests due that one week before a break?!), and Saturday from 4pm I was at a very good friend’s party, turning 18 yay her! (I spent two and a half hour getting ready – and that was after the shower!) Sunday I was in a “baptism” for my baby cousin, starting to get ready at 10. Today I’ve been working from 8-4.30 – a totally new experience for me, and now my body is finally saying stop. I was supposed to work tomorrow as well, but I’ve got skating practice at night, and then I have to go to Mads’ house, because as you might have learned by now, I am going with him to Sweden to be in his baby sister’s baptism (two in one week, i know!), and I have a feeling we won’t be sitting still once we are there either. Last time I was there I was sick too, might want to not be sick this timeeeee. ^^’ I’m still planning on going to work tomorrow, and then I can just do whatever I feel up to doing at the time, take lots of breaks instead. Maybe I can earn a little money. Besides, being home alone with two teenage boys that have the biggest stereo for their electric guitar ever – not so appealing. I’d rather be at work doing nothing. Besides, they have hot chocolate there ^^ Though today, the button for hot chocolate did NOT spit out hot chocolate. That was coffee, I tell you, can you imagine my reaction?! And mom wouldn’t even believe me, and I had her taste, but she had just had coffee, so she thought it tasted chocolate, I think it was a mix, but more coffee than chocolate. At the end of the day though, this other guy took my side and said he too wanted chocolate but it turned out to be some mix at least. “Score!” I thought ^^’

So seeing as I would be busy busy tomorrow first from work to skating to Mads’ house, then I packed today. So aside from toiletries, I am done packing. Yay! And exhausted. I’m all cake. Oh, cake I want cake. No I actually want chocolate. Not the drinking kind, the eating kind. But we never have chocolate. And if we do, it’s some stuff with nuts in it, and I don’t like nuts. The few times we have regular chocolate, my brother eats it all before I know it’s even opened. Which is mean. Anyway. I should stop this before it gets too long, and I should really go to bed soon, even thought it’s only 8.30pm.

Have a great week everyone! I don’t know how much I’ll be posting, but we shall see.

Boiii (insert squiggly line here. You know, mac keyboard doesn’t have the squiggly line, does that bother anyone else? It bothers the crap out of me, so if anyone knows how to make one anyway, please let me know)

My brother’s Birthday Party!

Gotta go be “social” now : P

Cover of "Memoirs of a Geisha (Widescreen...

It’s what it feels like at least, like I’m all beaten up. It’s been 100% since I woke up this morning, really. I spent the night at Mads house because school was located nearer his house on some beach, and it would just be easier spending the night at his house. So Thursday evening I was so tired I just slept two hours at his house (what a thoughtful guest I am..), and then we went to bed at 9.30 and slept longer, and still poor Mads had to work for 45 minutes to get me out of bed. We walked to “school”, and once there, we walked back and forth on that beach going to different posts of activities. We walked back. I went to the massage girl and got times most painful massage, I wanted to cry. I rush home, change and rush to skating practice. My first practice after summer was last Tuesday, and by this practice I had bruises all over my legs again, it was so painful! Practice was hard, and then I come home to a house full of 13-year-old boys. And on top of it all, I’ve caught a cold. Great.

But enough of my complaining. I had a nice day nonetheless : )

Movies watched: Half of Memoirs Of a Geisha. The reason why we only watched half, was because the online movie thingie only let us see half, and we didn’t notice that before we started watching. By “we” I guess it isn’t too hard to figure out I’m talking about Mads and myself.

Did anyone see this movie? What do you think? I want to dress up as a Geisha now. Might be my Halloween costume this Halloween. I don’t go trick or treating really, but I do like to dress up still :P

Me, I loved this movie. It’s long, but not boring. It’s strong, and I like the Chinese morals or whatever that shine thru a little bit throughout the movie. I really gotta watch the rest of it sometime soon.


Mads is here!

Full wool Merino sheep.

We walked doggie in the woods, and we went to the place where all the sheep are, and it was just a funny moment. I held out a pice of grass and one of the sheep spotted me, and so walked slowly towards me. His fellow sheep then saw me as well, and he followed the first sheep. And then sheep number 3 and 4 also peaked up from behind the hill and they all slowly came towards us, with clear expressions saying “Eh? What’s going on? We must figure this out. This must be some kind of aliens” And they were SO sceptical, and I just stood there with my little leaf in my hand, and they came slowly towards me, stopped, turned to one another as if to say “..should we?” and then continued on. A few meters away from me they all stopped, sheep 1, sheep 2, sheep 3 and sheep 4 all on a line with one in front and the other 3 just right behind him. I had to work not to laugh and just be standing still. Eventually one came over to have my little leaf though :) It was nice going for such a long walk in the woods. The weather is kind of chilly, but not cold, and the air was really fresh. It smelled of cold and forest. It was all quiet and stuff.

Anyway, we took a couple of fun pictures. Now, it’s just from my webcam, using all those fun effects that comes on the PhotoBooth on the macbook. But we had so much fun, and there are so many crazy pictures. I hope our fun times came thru in the photos.

And we also found the video feature! Lol.

Right, well I couldn’t upload that one..

Speaking of photos, when my dad is back from work this weekend, WITH the DSLR, I am SO going to bring it with me wherever I go and take tons of pictures and really develop my photography skills. I get weekly newsletters by email from DPS, and I am going to use them. I am going to become GOOD. And I am also going to learn to edit them. If you have any tips or tricks on that, btw, please let me know. Remember that I’m a beginner though, so beginner tips would be nice.

Here is the song that we were just listening too!

Breaking Benjamin – Evil Angel

I don’t know if that worked, but yeah.

Have a nice evening!

Dinner at grandparents’ house

31 Aug

So another day in school is over. Today was not too bad though, I am finally understanding math, history and philosophy is fun, and spanish.. well, not too fond. Thought it wasn’t all too difficult what we were doing today, as far as I remember. Anyway, after school, Mads and I took the bus home to his place and then fairly quickly after we arrived, we left for his grandparents’ house for dinner. Mince, a scottish dish (if I have the spelling wrong, please let me know), it’s really good. After dinner, we did homework, we were really good, when we sat down to do them, we did them until we were done, no fuss. And at the same time I annoyed the crap out of Mads with playing the soundtrack from Cirque du Soleil‘s KÁ. And, like at most grandparent’s houses, there was coffee and cakes a little later. At least that’s how it is in Norway. Haha, on the way over there I slept in the car with my mouth wide open. So graceful, I know.

And, I swear, I worked hard to get a camera with me, so I could take pics for this post, but my dad took our DSLR with him to his workplace on the other side of the country, and my mom’s camera was dead – with no charger. And mine, well I believe it’s dead, AND it has a full memory card. So, I asked Mads, and he had a DSLR too, but it was dead, with no charger too. I as going to just use his camera on his cell phone, but we then kinda forgot.. So yea.

Now I am just waiting around for Grey’s Anatomy to start, I am totally hooked. I cannot miss a single episode :P

And I think it’s airing soon, so I’ll be off!

Oh and I also forgot my login to weheartit.com. Isn’t that just great? -.-

28 Aug

Gah, with school starting up, there is not much interesting to blog about. I mean, all I do is I go to school, pay attention, go home, and do homework, and then I tend to surf around on the internet. I have a few hours every now and then during my school week that I am off, and so I try and do either homework, or blog. So it’s not that I don’t have time or anything, I just don’t have anything to say.

“hey, so today I had norwegian and we learned about the middle age, and then I had history and philosophy and we discussed the difference between humans and animals, and then we had English and we learned the basic grammar, and then we had P.E and we bounced around on BOSU those half balls on the floor for balance thing, and then we had 6 minutes where she taught us to relax.” – Oh how interesting. Everyone has their own school days, or work days, and no one really cares to read about another ones as well. Their own is more than enough. Now if you have an interesting job, where new and interesting things happen every day, that’s different. But my school day is just.. school.

So mostly, I have improved from last year, I now pay attention more, and I speak maybe a tad bit more in class than what I did, AND, I do my homework right away. So I am happy about that. It’s a nice feeling to just be done with homework. Not have it hanging over you, you know. Other than that, I try and hang out with Mads, so he comes home with me sometimes and vice versa. Otherwise, I clean up after my mess at home (after mom told me to do so at least 3 times), I surf the internet, play games on facebook, and I read. That’s about it. Not much interesting. What a life I have.

BUT, during those non-interesting times of surfing the net I found a couple cool things; I fell in love with weheartit.com and I made myself an account. And I’ve been hearting I think about every single image there. And I made myself a youtube account, finally, and added Michelle Phan right away : P, and I’ve been surfing around to find some cheap, yet quality ice blue contacts. I found a page that was pretty cool (of course I don’t have the URL right now, it’s on the computer I use in school), they were of good quality (at least so they claimed) and they were to last for “at LEAST 12 months”. I’m not sure if it was the exact ice blue color I was looking for, but so far they are the best I found, and they were rather cheap. If anyone has any possible contact-candids for me, please let me know.

Does anyone else love weheartit ? Feel free to comment with a link to your favorite image!
