Listen while reading 🙂

So, here I am again…
What is going on in my life?
Well, that’s the reason I haven’t been posting much: nothing. Nothing is going on in my life.
I quite like it, it’s not so stressful, and it allows me time to do fun stuff, to rest and to deal with my issues.
2011 has been a particularly bad year for me, with a lot of deaths and bad stuff. I’ve also been ill a lot, but this year is almost over – which gives me hope. When I look back at my life from now on, 2011 will be viewed as a black little space in my lifeline, but I want to come out of it and in later years be able to say “That year was shit, but you won’t believe all the fun I had in 2012!”

I have been a good girl and paid attention to Uni and coursework, I’ve actually showed up for all my lectures and seminars, and if I’ve missed a seminar, I’ve always arranged to go to another seminar to catch up with what I’ve lost. So I haven’t missed a thing. 🙂
I’ve also become a Departmental representative (Dep Rep), which turned out to be way more than expected.  When they pitch the position to you, they say “You’ll be representing all your fellow students in your department, and all you have to do is to go to four meetings per academic year”, which sounds simple enough, even though you learn during your first year that you’ve got about 200 fellow students. So being the Dep Rep for the Sociology department, I expected to represent 200 Sociology(Soc) students for the 2. year, and I expected there to be at least one other Rep alongside me. I was partly right in both expectations. I DO represent 200 Sociology students with at least one other Rep. But we’re four reps so far(from the 2. year Soc Students), and we represent both 2. and 3. year! Which means we’re representing about 400 students! And then there was the surprising turn of us also representing the MCS (Media and Cultural Study) students, which makes it about 800 people to represent! I find this hard to believe though, as we don’t have anything to so with these students, but the information I’ve got so far seems to point in that direction. I must admit, this whole Dep Rep job is a bit confusing, because we seem to only get information on a ‘need-to-know’-basis, except during the meetings, because then we get a lot of information on all sorts of stuff. It wasn’t until I got the first e-mail that I realised I’m in a some committee as well, and have to attend meetings with them. And then I got another e-mail about another committee, and another about yet another, and so on. Apparently, I am part of so many aspects of student/staff – student/university committees and organisations, I can’t even keep count. But I receive e-mails with details on where and when, so I manage to go to them (all except from one). And I’m still kind of liking it, even though it’s way more than expected.

If you’ve read some of my blog before, you might remember me saying that I wanted to get involved in projects where I help with and deal with children. I have been looking and looking, but apparently my searches have not been of good quality, because I’ve only just found something! But I’m way too excited about it to be sad that I couldn’t get involved at an earlier stage 😀 LUSU involve hasn’t been of any interest to me until after I became a Dep Rep, and it wasn’t until a friend of mine signed up for some of these projects, that I really started appreciating them. Hopefully, I’ll get the ever lovely Fani to join me on some of this too 🙂

But let’s move over to my more personal life, and end this whole educational rant 😛
With all my free time now, I’ve spent a whole lot of it catching up with different series and watched, and re-watched, a few films – which is one of the things I sort of need to do from time to time now, since I need to tire myself out mentally to be able to sleep or at least rest. But I’ve found a new show I’m sure a lot of you have heard of before, and I am in love – on so many levels!
American Horror Story, anyone? Heard of it? Yeah? No? Well, it is splendid! And the intro/opening alone is just… wow. If scary/horror-themed things could actually turn me on,  I’d be an open flame of sexual drives after watching it! The giddy feeling I get from it though, and the sort of… Love… I feel for the sheer fiction of it just overwhelms me when I think too hard about it.


As you can see, this video is mirrored, but it’s the best version I can find for now, so bare with it.

And one can obviously guess who I immediately fell in love with. Tate. Wow. It’s such a weird, twisted, sick thing and as if “falling in love” with a fictional character alone isn’t “bad” enough, I had to fall for the most twisted of them all. The dude is psycho, and I can’t help but think “don’t worry too much about it, you’re still allowed to like him!” As if?! If this was real life, I’d be sick even thinking about liking someone like that! But, luckily, this isn’t real life 😉

I have also re-discovered KoЯn, and how much I love them!
  

I have also re-discovered eBay! And MAN am I having fun!
I have ordered so many things by now, and I don’t know what to do with myself O_O
I have absolutely no self control when it comes to buying cheap stuff online xD
I’ve even bought the whole series of ‘The Chronicles of Narnia’ for £7.5 WITH SHIPPING!
I DID bid on the first edition of ‘The Chronicles of Narnia – The Lion, The Witch And The Wardrobe’, but my friend, being the little fucker he is, OVERBID ME! FIVE SECONDS BEFORE THE END! )@=(¤¤#%&(&/)(=”¤/”=!!!! I’m happy for him and all, but I wanted that book!
I have also bought some very amazing steampunk goggles, and as soon as I get them, I promise I will post a few pictures *overly happy* ❤

And last but not least, I have developed a passion for origami!
I’ve been making butterflies since *insert* after going to a Christian summer camp(don’t ask -___-), and I’ve sort of been known for leaving little butterflies here and there for people to find 🙂 Among those people are Charlotte, my flatmate, I left here some on her bed before I went home for the summer(together with a short letter), but I haven’t thought much of it until she the other day asked me “Do you know how to make paper swans?”
“Ehh… no?”
Two minutes pass.
“Do you want me to know how to make paper swans?”
And this resulted in an army of little paper things now residing in her room 🙂
At this point, I know how to make butterflies, swans, cranes, dragons, hearts, stars, elephants, orchids, koi, rose(sort of), and I’m continuously learning new things to make! Tomorrow, Charlotte and I are planning a little Creative Christmas Workshop for ourselves, where we’ll be making our own Christmas decorations, and I’ll try out some new origami techniques – I CAN HARDLY CONTAIN MY EXCITEMENT FOR THIS! 😀 We’ll be going shopping early tomorrow, trying to find candles and glitter and pretty paper and all sorts of fun arts and crafts stuff – and in the evening we’ll be creating Christmas in our home! 😀 This will be so much fun! =^__^=

This means I have also gone on eBay and ordered a whole lot of origami paper xD
But it’s worth it – definitely!

I guess this will be it from me for today.
I’ll see you in another life when we both are cats 🙂

Well, I don’t know about the ‘Wisdom’ part, but I am old now, and they keep telling me that with age comes wisdom, so I’ll just go with it.

I have decided to do some changes with my life in regards of academic and career-option opportunities, and have therefor signed up to become a Departmental Representative for Sociology. AND I MADE IT THROUGH! I am now officially a Dep Rep! WOOHOO! And I’m even planning on accepting any offer of a position within this opportunity 😀

And I’ve been looking into some charity things, as I have been doing for the last year or so, and finally found something which sounds a bit interesting! International Student Volunteering! http://www.isvolunteers.org/
It just sounds SO fun and interesting, but it’s quite expensive, and the information I’ve gathered is not fulfilling. But I’m going to a meeting tomorrow to get more information 🙂 I really wish I could combine the Volunteer projects of the Dominican Repubic, and the adventure part of Ecuador. I’d SO be there!

Looking forward to what tomorrow brings me!

To make up for the serious lack of posts in quite some time, I’ll present you with this.
But first, a short update:

I lost a friend on February 27th. RIP Joachim Pedersen Ommundsen †
I lost another friend on April 5th. RIP Steffen Strømsbråten †
I went to Norway over the Easter holidays, and I even had some fun.
While in Norway, me and my friend Jeanette, hosted a great party, with about 40 people present. *likes this*

Now, for the real post:

And to finish it all off, two new songs for ya!

Do you sometimes miss your childhood? I sure as hell does. So here’s to that!

Make sure you hit play before you scroll down any further!

And if you want a double treat:

And just to finish this whole thing off


(Take notice of his footwork… OMG! O_O)

So, the past week has been somewhat stressful, and the coming 5-7 days will not be any better on me, I can assure you.

I have been busy trying to find a place for me and Charlotte to live for the next year, but I’m not really sure I can find one. Great. We NEED a place to live, or else we’re severely screwed. But we’ll figure something out eventually. I hope.

Other than that, I have essays. Essays, essays, essays… Holy crap, those essays!
Now, I must admit, my procrastination habits have ruined my chances of really good grades quite a bit, seeing as I have spent a lot of my time catching up on “Glee”, watched two seasons of  “Chuck” and am currently watching “Wall-E” and “Potion Master’s Corner”. Simultaneously. Sort of. And I am also headed for the kitchen in a minute or so, to make myself some… *drumroll*… BREAKFAST! 😀 Hahaha! I have been awake for the most of the day, I just haven’t gotten around to the ‘eating’ part yet xD

Oh, more procrastinating news: www.fuckyeahvoldemort.wordpress.com! I have spent a few nights in a row, giving in to my OCD and gone through ALL of her enjoyable posts. Problem is: there’s a lot of them. Dear God, there is a LOT of them! But I’ve been through them all, so ta-fucking-da! My OCD wins. Anyway, when I say her posts are enjoyable, I really mean it though – you should head over and check them out! ^^ (Opens in a new tab/window.)

Now, there has been some fun, recent additions at this university. A Harry Potter society has been established! OMG!
And guess what? I’M IN IT! We had out first meeting this Wednesday, when we had our Sorting Ceremony, which was quite fun. I showed up wearing my Gryffindor sweater and tie, and my amazing Time Turner necklace ^^ Which I sould have spared my self, as I got sorted in to Slytherin… But I’m not complaining, as I am quite prepared for that as well. I DO have Draco Malfoy’s wand after all *smirks* So as soon as they get it in stock, I suppose I should have to order myself the Slytherin sweater and tie, but again… Very happy to do so. I had planned on buying both sets anyway. Now I’m only contemplating buying the robes as well… 🙂 Anyway, I was severely sleep deprived that day, so I couldn’t really stay for too long, I had accidentally ended up pulling an all-nighter. Stupid interwebz and the fabulously interesting secrets it holds! ❤

I suppose this will be the shortest update in a while, as I have to focus on my essays now.
But I should mention that I will probably start using a few pictures from Fuck Yeah Voldemort in the future, just so you’re aware. I’ll just make her a tag whenever there is credit to be given =^___^=

Have a lovely weekend, precious little people.
And I’ll see you some time in the future.

O hai!
Remember that DailyBooth-secret I was talking about?
Here it is:

10 points if you know what it is ;)

10 points if you know what it is 😉

Why did I title this “Believe In Yourself”?
Because of Sons of Admirals, obviously!

Merry Christmas

Yo yo yo yo, ma homies!
No? Okay, fine. Haha xD

Anyways, I figured that since I’m done with all my work for now, I might as well update you guys a bit.
So, the last week has been spent catching up on sleep ❤
And, since I haven’t been to a chiropractor for quite some time now, my body is really working against me nowadays.
And my headaches has come back. Hellish headaches. Plus, I don’t think my sleeping habits have been to nice to my head, so those two added… Let’s just say: I’ve skipped a few lectures. But at least my sleeping habits have started to normalize a little. I go to bed around 12 or 1, and fall asleep between 3-4. Which is way better than “Can’t sleep. Shit. All-nighter!!” anyway, so.

But I really need my chiropractor now 😦
Luckily, mum is awesome nowadays, she has been especially since I left home and moved to friggin’ England!
So she’s ordered an appointment for me. Luff<3

She has also ordered an appointment with the hairdresser for me!
But, don’t I cut my own hair? Yes sir, yes I do. Well observed.
I’ll post a picture of the result when I can 😉

For those of you who know me, DailyBooth holds a secret.
Go find it! 😉

Oh, guess what?
I spoke to Bjørn Erik’s girlfriend yesterday. Turns out, she’s NOT his girlfriend.
She’s his FIANCÉ! OMFGWHAT? o_O
So, he has once again gone down on one knee. Haha!
Oh well, we’ll see how long this lasts 😛

Hey, guess what? Today is happy times!
My lecture was cancelled! Hooray! 😀
AND! I’m going to see the latest “Chronicles of Narnia” movie 😀
HAPPY TIMES, I tell you.

What else have I been doing lately? Hmmm…
Oh right, I’ve been YouGeeking! A lot more!
I’ve watched all of Nerimon’s videos, and all of Hexachordal’s videos.
Almost all of Charlieissocoollike’s, but… when he was younger… Oh God.
I get easily embarrassed on the behalf of others. I really can’t stand to watch some of the earlier things he did xD
Next up is Eddplant. And when I’m done with his videos, I’ll re-watch some of LittleRadge’s.

Oh! And Adel and I went to see “Fred – the movie”. Which was fun… kind of.
Not the most well spent 83 minutes of my life, I’ll admit that. But hey! The lady I ordered tickets from did something  wrong and was too lazy to make a do-over, so Adel and I got to pretend we we’re 18 and young again. Not much difference for me, but I think it made A’s day. She’s 23 now, so. I keep mocking her, saying how old she is, but she’s really not ^^ And on the bus station, we fund this:

What's your destionation? xD

What's your destionation? xD

And I’ve even been brave enough to do something on my own! :O
How on earth I managed to do that, I do not know.
I’ve never been so nervous my whole life!!
I hate having these anxieties. You know, going somewhere on my own.
Not having people I can child-like ask if they can ask for things for me.
Which again means that I do NOT ask for things, I just seemingly mindlessly wander around until I find what I want.
Time taking, but indeed much better than having to talk xD
You know what? I should stop being called L A and rather go for Issues-Girl xD
I’m not joking, I’m damaged goods, we all know it, we all pretend it’s not there, but I’m too darn stupid and egocentric to be able to stop it from leaking out. Oh well.

The other day O C complained about my tone.
It made me a little sad, because I though she wound understand me well enough by now, to know that whatever ‘tone’ I had, it was just me asking her about something. I never mean for there to be a tone in my voice.
And, for instance… When I’m wrong about something, people say I look disgusted, arrogant, know-it-all and angry, but really I just feel confused. Specially if it’s something I was really sure I knew.
I guess it’s the same with my voice. I sound different than how I feel.
Almost like mum, then. She usually sounds a bit angry when she’s happy 🙂 Rather confusing, but you know.
As soon as you get to know a person, you learn to read their emotions in every way, not just what it looks or seems like.
I think big sis has learned that much about me about now. She’s probably still ticked sometimes, but I think she know what I really mean.

3 DAYS! There’s only 3 day’s until I leave England for the holidays! :O
And on Thursday I’ll meet Keeler! Yay! Finally! ^^

To end this all, music:

Lately, I’ve been listening a lot to Massive Attack. Why I haven’t done so before now is beyond me.
Fav’s:

And for the title, my favourite Christmas song:

(And just ignore the video xD)

Have a happy holiday!
Merry Christmas to you all!
