The other day I updated my Facebook status to this:

“IF ANYBODY KNOWS SOMEONE RICH WHO WOULD LIKE TO GET MARRIED FAST, LET ME KNOW!
I just calculated how much money I will owe after my Bachelor degree…”

And yes, ha-ha, very funny, I know…
But it did get me thinking! What if someone rich actually DID approach me?
I keep imagining the following conversation to unfold:
“Yes, hello, I’m rather rich, and I would consider marrying you…”
“Great then, as long as you agree to pay for my tuition – up to a full PhD, it’s done! :D”
“Well, I’d agree to that, but what could you offer me?”
…Obviously, I can’t expect a random rich person to marry me and pay up without getting anything in return. But what would I offer? Sexual services are not an option, simply because I’m neither experienced not attractive enough for a future husband/wife to benefit of our marriage solely based on that, especially since I’m not open to the all-too-weird stuff.
“Well, you’ve obviously got the talent and the money, and I’ve got the ehm… The education. Yes?”
…Nope, wouldn’t work.
“Extensive knowledge of serial killers and various methods of torture?”
…But now that we think about it, that’s not really qualities you look for in a future wife now, is it?
“I’m like, REALLY good at texting! Yeah?”
…Wouldn’t cut it.
“I can make you some origami decorations?”
…Aaaah, tempting! But alas, NO. -___-
“I wouldn’t be in your way?”
…Neither would a mail order bride!  Besides, I’d say getting my education funded would be ‘being in the way’, economically speaking.
“I’d tweet nice things about you and let everyone I know on Facebook know how much I love you?”
…Really? I couldn’t just… _Pay_ someone to do that?
“I’d give you more children than you can count, and guarantee you an… heir?”
…Is this really the qualities it comes down to? An heir? When is this, the 17th century??

Though I DO realise I basically just said that I WOULD whore myself out for a financially secured education, but that I lack the qualities of a common prostitute 😛 Either way, my point is that I don’t have much to bring into a relationship but myself, and though that in many ways may be a lot, that is still not all there is to a relationship.

But further more, I not only need this hypothetical persons money for my education! I also need it for a flat with a proper boiler and FUCKING HOT WATER! I mean, are you kidding me? My showering routine now consists of boiling a full kettle of water three times, pouring the boiling water into a bucket, before adding enough cold water to fill the bucket, then place it in the bathtub together with a smaller bowl and my shampoo, conditioner and body wash. When this is done, I have to lower myself into the (COLD) bathtub, and use the smaller bowl to pour the luke warm water over my head/body. Yeah, wow! Very medieval.
Why? Because not only did someone in the building turn off and on the water in the building without telling us, so that air would gather in our pipes and create an immense pressure resulting in no hot water coming out of the boiler, and a massive leak in our cupboard, which lead to water getting into our washing machine and short circuiting the whole flat for a few days, but when they fixed the leak, our hot water would not return! GAH! We’ve had people running in and out of our flat for days on end now, to get everything fixed, but it’s yet to be resolved completely. We’ve got electricity and a washing machine again though, so we’re happy about that 🙂

 

And it’s not all doom and gloom, Friday is coming up, and do we know what’ll happen then? 😀
INA WILL BE HERE! She’s visiting from Friday to Wednesday, and I’m really looking forward to it 😀
It’ll be so much fun =^___^=

…fuck it! I had planned to give you a loooooong post giving you detailed descriptions of the events that has kept me away from my blog, but I just realized that I’m far to lazy to do so, and you are far to uninteresed. In short: there was a huge, Norwegian graduation-class tradition that kept me busy. And after that, I’ve just procrastinated writing the previous mentioned entry. Anyways…

Things are going great nowadays! 😀
I’m done with applying for schools, and besides the Norwegian ones (which I don’t really want to attend), I applyed at the University of York, of Lancaster, of Essex, of Stirling, and Swansea University. Fun part is: only two days after York got my application, they gave me a conditional offer! 😀 Which means I’ll probably have a place there! So, unless some of the other schools says they want me, and York doesn’t change their minds, I’LL BE ATTENDIG UNIVERSITY IN ENGLAND SOON! *really happy*

AND, I’ve seen my grades now, and they’ve actually improved! My score has gone up, and as a “‘atta good girl” and “well done finishing 13 years of school with good grades”, the mother bought me A BRAND NEW LAPTOP! Hallelujah! ❤

And it haz got webcamz

Webcam 4 meh <3

Webcam 4 meh ❤

My precious little Acer Aspire 5551G ❤

Last, but not least, I have got a new addiction.
Dailybooth! It’s kinda cute, a little nerdy, and very social!
Have fun!

Bye ❤

So, as stated in my previous post: someone stole my iPod. My wonderful, wonderful iPod. An iPod Touch 32GB, to be exact. *sad face*

But, since it’s Easter, I will not mourn the loss for much longer!
And, since it’s Easter, of course I got ill. Now I’ve got the flu. Oh yeah!
Really, after the surgery and the infection, I am quite positive my Immune system just vanished. Zero, nix and nada is left of it, and the minute I walk into a room, I stumble upon a new and fascinating illness. Wonderful.
I though I was fine, untill I got home from school on friday and threw up even before I got to close the door. Just like that, no warning. I went to bed, only I realized I had a fever. 38.7 celcius. Faaaaan-tastic!

So I spent friday, saturday and sunday doing… well, nothing really. Staying in a dark room, watching season 1 and 2 of Bones doesn’t really count as “doing” anything. I think.

Monday, however, my mum stayed in, and I went to work. I should probably add here that my mother is the daily manager for the Norwegian compartment of the firm I work for. So, yes. That felt a bit odd. But I am happy non the less.
Did the same thing on Tuesday, and after work both days, I went to Karolines house to watch movies, chill and blabber. Good times. Oh, and check out her sci-fi remote control! 😮

Ooooh, shiney!

Ooooh, shiney!

How amazingly sci-fi isn't that? xD

How amazingly sci-fi isn't that? xD

I love being at Karolines. It’s so comfortable and warm and her family is so welcoming. I sort of feel really at home there. Love her to bits<3

Something else I love to bits is music!
And I love re-discovering music I used to listen to.
My most recent ones are these:

The Clash
Cascada
Slade
TNT
TobyMac
Declan Galbraith
Tindrum
Guano Apes
Three Days Grace
Samy Deluxe

All bands I used to like, listened to till I got sick of them, and then halfway forgot them.
I won’t be talking too much about all of them, but I shall mention a few things.

The Clash

The Clash

The Clash:
“London Calling” was probably in my blood from the day I was born, and “Should I Stay or Should I Go” has grown on me. After watching “Billy Elliot” about 5 years ago, I had a “Clash-period”. Now it’s Clash time again!

Cascada

Cascada

Cascada:
I just realized… I must subconsciously LOVE German music. At the very least, these guys has rocked the dance floor a couple of times through my childhood. And I know this will make me seem like I objectify her and it makes me seem like a sexist, Natalie Horler is HOT!

Slade

Slade

Slade:
This good ol’ 70’s band is sort of my mothers idea. It’s her kind of thing, I guess. And I suppose it has rubbed off on me. A little bit. She took me to a concert with them as a birthday present. They’re pretty old by now. But they can rock! In the good, old, old way! 😀

TNT

TNT

TNT:
There’s really just one thing to say: “10.000 lovers (in one)“.

TobyMac

TobyMac

TobyMac:
Got my eyes up for this guy around the time they were making the first (well, second, actually) movie about the Pevensie kids who visits the wonderful, magical land in the back of a wardrobe. Yes, I am talking about The Chronicles of Narnia – The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. TobyMac did a song about Narnia, and I fell in love. Then I heard “Made To Love” and was addicted. Then I learned he made “Made To Love” to God. Suddenly I was cured. But now I’m sort of back on track again 😉

Declan Galbraith

Declan Galbraith

Declan Galbraith:
The kid with the angel voice. I absolutely adore him. And yes, he is handsome. And cute. And famous. And waaaay out of our league. But who the hell cares, LOOK AT HIM! No wait, never mind that. Do the opposite. Do NOT look at him. Close your eyes. And then listen.
…Wow. I know, right? Goosebumps. ❤

TinDrum

TinDrum

TinDrum:
Not as famous as I would want them to be. Though, there is only one song they have that completely takes my breath away. “Drums of War”. Seriously, it’s old, but it’s still worth your time.

Guano Apes

Guano Apes

Guano Apes:
This little lady blows my mind. With the song “Open Your Eyes”, she quite literally opened my eyes. Not only is this amazingly good, coming from this petite woman, it’s bloody brilliant! I was sort of shocked the first time I learned how she looked. She’s not ugly, that’s not it. She’s just not what you expect after hearing her voice.

Three Days Grace

Three Days Grace

Three Days Grace:
Now this is a band I simply just can’t stay away from for too long. The vocalists voice just… chills me out. I am amazed at how he can use his voice like that. Now, this band has given me many favourite songs, and one of them is probably the theme song to my life. “Let’s start a riot”. I don’t know what I would have done without that song. It just… suits me. And I feel awesome every time I hear it. They have also given me “I hate everything about you”, which I wholeheartedly dedicate to my ex-girlfriend, Iselin. I used to listen to it right after I dumped her. It made me feel both better and more sad at the same time. “Pain” is also a good choice, if you decide to check them out. So is the rest of their songs. :p

Samy Deluxe

Samy Deluxe

Samy Deluxe:
This dude rocks my world! I should give a big shout-out to Tom Kaulitz from Tokio Hotel, for just being pure awesome and therefor introducing me to this artist. Because the truth is, had I not read in EVERY article I could find about Tokio Hotel that Samy Deluxe was Toms absolute favourite artist, I would never have discovered him. So kudos, Mr. Kaulitz! And THANK YOU! Deluxe has blown my mind and stolen my heart for a couple of years now. With songs like “Generation”, “Grüne Bille”, “Weck Mich Auf”, “Einfach Ich”, “Dis Wo Ich Herkomm”, “Outta Hier” and many others, I have felt like I’m too cool for school so many times, and he has saved my day with his great lyrics (at least the ones I’ve googled to see what means xP) and awesome beats! The last couple of days, he has been my saviour, and I have enjoyed every moment I am in the car thoroughly. One of these days, I will learn to speak German. And then I’m gonna be a rap star!
Hahaha! xD

Samy Deluxe

Samy Deluxe

And then, just for the heck of it, since we’re already so deep into the music, and going in the rap-field, I want to add this song: Eminem. I just can’t get enough of it. I will never stop loving that song.

Now, one of the reasons to why I am so into finding back to my old music is because I made a deal with my mother. She offered that if I give up my easter egg(which is HUGE), she would help me buy A BRAND NEW iPOD! 😮
And look!

Brand new iPod <3

Brand new iPod ❤

On Wednesday I got one!
I luuuuvz eet ❤

It’s got 64GB memory instead of the lousy 32 I had. Which obviously weren’t enough anyway.
I am having so much fun with this one 😀 It even, actually works! 😀 *fun times*

Can’t really remember what happened on thursday, but on friday I went to Karolines place again. ^^
I was only supposed to meet her boyfriend, but was invited to dinner. When I planned on eloping, reclining dinner, they ambushed me with grandfathers who said I should. They had already put out a plate for me and everything. So I stayed. I regret nothing. The dinner was absolutely fantastic, and the company was great! I still feel uncomfortable around adult males, and I notice this particularly around my friends fathers. But I can cope with it. As long as they don’t drink! 😀 Especially not beer. The smell of beer + adult male = me scared shitless. I should blame my “father” for that. But it’s okay. It’s not like I find myself in such a situation every day anyways, so the few times it happens, I can handle it. ^__^

Saturday was an even, though. The father has got a new lady. He’s got a new lady, WITH KIDS! Guess the old man is finally settling in. That might be good. I couldn’t really care much less than what I already do. It worries me a bit, because of my sister, but other than that, I don’t really give a shit about him. He’s just a guy our family know. Not a dad. Specially not mine. No, he’s just one of those friends you have because they know a lot of good stories and jokes and are really fun to hang around with. But nothing else. Not to me at least. I do appreciate him, though. That should be said.
And yes, saturday. Suddenly, I just HAD to come over to him. (It’s a long, complicated story, involving his many lies, and me being wicked mad at him, but only in secret, because he doesn’t even deserve to know.) So, I had to come and meet his new family. One of the older kids were “home” for a visiting. She usually lives on the other side of the country. The event was… rather uneventful. And a bit weird and awkward, actually. But I got to see my sister! And I got to give her the gift I got her in England. You should have seen her face. She really lit up. I think I hit the nail spot on! Her smile really does warm me, you know. Anything I do, I would twice for her. ❤

Sisters <3

Sisters ❤

Sunday was… fine. We had a friend of mine, Kristine, and her family over for coffee and brownies. For some reason, I am really bad in the kitchen. Trust me, I could burn water! Really, I could! But the brownies I made… wow. They were brilliant! I have no idea why they were so perfect, I have no idea how I did it, but it was amazing! I think I just had a moment there. Anyways, I spent the evening in my room, playing some of my music for the others. Had to prove that I ACTUALLY listen to ALL sorts of music. I could never “pick my poison”. :p The evening was okay, I think 😀

Monday, was a tad bit more fun! After sleeping pretty much all the day, I tried to get hold of a friend of mine, who were only going to stay for so long. Unfortunately, she was already on her way home when I finally got hold of her. So I got hold of another one of my friends, since she was finally back home from Northern Norway! Ina, one of my best friends, and probably the one that has known me the longest of all of my friends. After I picked her up, we went for a safe road trip. Meaning we only went to places we knew by roads we knew. But it was a road trip none the less. (And for those of you who care, we went from Solbergelva to Vestfossen, over to Mjøndalen and then back to Skotselva, before we went all the way to Sande, and then headed home.) We had loads of fun, and we’re probably the only girls that can go from blasting out the Star Wars soundtrack for 20 minutes, to howling along with Westlife for the next hour or so, and then when we get home, sob to the sad movie “El Laberinto del Fauno”, while laughing because the faun really looks like a friend of ours(well, mine, mostly). Aaaah, what a lovely day. Drove her home at 1 AM or so. Her poor little brother had to get up and open the door, because she forgot her keys. Oh well ❤

Tuesday was as uneventful as ever, and today began school. Hell to the yeah! Ugh… -____-
Of course, I got ill at the end of the day, causing me to throw up and get a massive headache, plus fever. But it was manageable, and passed away after a couple of hours. Though, it got me worried. Am I really fine now? :p

I should end this with a short note about movies too. I feel obligated to do so, as I have watched far too many of them recently. Okay, going first:

Bones!
You have to watch Bones. Such an amazing show. (Okay, not a movie, but still… I’ve got them on DVD?)

El Laberinto del Fauno!
Honestly, if you haven’t seen it, you’ve missed out on something. Big time!

National Treasure I & II
They are quite different from each other, but highly amusing non the less! A bit childish, but I don’t care. Good times ^__^

Without a Paddle
O.M.G. Hilarious! Really, it is quite the comedy! A feel-good movie, even when it hits rock bottom. Go waste your time on this!

Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief
For us fantasy-freaks and geeks, this is absolutely the movie one has to see. The mix of normal everyday life, greek mythology and pretty darn good special effects. Definitely worth watching!

Imagine Me & You
Without a doubt one of my favourite movies, if not THE favourite movie. I love it so much! The characters are well played, and well written, the dialog is good and works VERY well with the faces and places of the movie. The song is addictive, and I keep finding myself missing the movie from time to time. Go see ❤

P.S. I Love You
Oh Jesus, this movie is brilliant. And it has Gerard Butler in it! When a movie has Gerard Butler in it, you know you can love it. This might be a bit on the sad side of the emotional scale, but never mind that. The movie is actually good! (and it has Gerard Butler in it!) Plot is amazing, and lines fit characters and situations perfectly. And it really made me miss “Jerry”, even though he is fictional, and I have never met him. Best waste of time ever. Try it.

Now I will go have fun listening to my iPod while I take a long, hot shower.
I love showering. It makes me clean! 😀
L A out ❤

P.S.
Is your life average?
