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 🙂

– L A<3

Alright, so saying I would be seeing you within a week was a total lie.
But at least I’m here within the next week(since the last post).

This’ll just be a quick update, I’ve got things to do you know.

First things first:
School is still great! Everything is phenomenal!
Even though I miss many of the things I left back home in Norway(bigsiss! 😦 And my little sister. :/).
But they’ll be coming over to visit me some day! *happy*
And mum has just sent me a package with loads of my stuff, which I’m anxiously waiting for 😛
And my tutors are amazing! And very understanding(I will come back to this)…

During my stay here, it has come to my attention that I do not really like to go out to drink; I much rather prefer to stay home and have parties in a more “safe” and well known environment.
The night from Tuesday to Wednesday gave me yet another reason to feel this way.

Tuesday evening I had planned to do my readings for my seminars, but was procrastinating.
When I finally got around to it, I decided that I would do the readings for my 9 o’clock first, and then do the readings for my 11 o’clock in the break between the seminars. So I sat down and started reading my criminology stuff, and found it so interesting! I got really engaged in what I did and my replies to the questions asked, that I didn’t realize it was beginning to get rather late. It wasn’t until I finished, the time dawned upon me… HALF ELEVEN! Shit! So I pack away my books, clean my desk and get ready for bed. As I am setting my alarm for the morning I cast a quick glance at my timetable and fuck me over… I have sociology first, not criminology! Hooray! So to fix this up, I set my alarm for 7 AM, just to be able to get through my stuff roughly, and go to bed.
At 3 AM I’m woken by a “Hilde, Hilde, Hilde, no no no, Hilde, you’re losing all your stuff” and a loud thump. I figure my Norwegian friend has had a drink or two too much, as us Norwegians tend to do. But as I am drifting away to dreamland again, I hear crying. “Wtf?” So I get out of bed and walk into the hallway to see what is going on. SHIT!

Hilde is lying in her bed, crying her heart out, puke all over, and shouting for her mum. The others don’t quite understand what was going on, as she had just been tipsy when they were on the bus, but when they arrived here, she had suddenly *BANG* went completely limp, and apparently superdrunk. It doesn’t take long before we realize what has happened; Hilde has been spiked. It takes us a couple of hours of me calling her mum, explaining, letting them talk to each other, calling a taxi, the others getting hold of everyone they can, and we ship her off to the hospital. There they confirm our suspicion, and Hilde gets taken care of. At this point, I am still in the flat, cleaning up a bit in her room and trying to get some sleep for my early morning. No can do. And just as they arrive, my 7 o’clock alarm goes off. Up we go, into the shower, check on the others and off to the seminar. Then I realize… the reading. In my sleep deprived mind I explain what has happened, and my tutor, Stan, just looks at me and says: “You should go take a nap. You shouldn’t even be here! No problem, I understand why you haven’t read it.” Thank God for that!

Oh, I don’t remember if I mentioned or not, but the first week here I had to get a new phone in order to get a functional phone with a british number. And do you have any idea how crazy I am? I bought a fucking BlackBerry! And not ANY fucking BlackBerry, THE fucking BlackBerry!

BlackBerry Torch

Oh yeah! ♥

It is fucking awesome!

Oh, and I have read some books! Well, one book. I’m only halfway into the other.
“In The Miso Soup” by Murakami Ryu (The other way around for us Europeans, and you Americans).
And I’ve got to hand it to him, it is brilliantly done. Even though it is a thriller, I must say: the mix between mundane everyday life, work, relationships, and sex, blood, gore and murder makes it both boring and horrifying. In the “this-could-actually-have-happened-to-me!” sort of way. You get the feeling of being right there, and you are so dragged in, it at points feel like this is your own actual life. Brilliant, just fucking brilliant. Read it!

"In the Miso Soup" by Muramaki Ryu

On a short note, I have also begun to pick up on my Supernatural fangasms again, and have begun where I left off in the beginning/middle of season 5. This still surprised me, though:

"Wtf?"

"Wtf?"

Oh well 😛

I guess I’ll be seeing you around, then 😉

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?

London calling

Posted: March 25, 2010 in Education, Friends, L A, Travel, TV

So, alright. I’ve been shutting up for way too long now.
Problem is: I have way too many things hanging over me at the moment, and I am starting to feel really pressed.
I figured if I could just let the blog be, I would have more time for the other stuff, but since I still find myself procratinating, I though I should just give up, do a blogpost, and see if I can get anything done afterwards.

So, arriving in London was fantastic. The moment I stepped out of the plane and was met by the familiare standars of an English airport, I felt like I was home again. I smiled, I think.

We got to our hotel later than planned, but I was happy anyways. The hotelroom wasen’t much to brag about, but I’ve seen worse. The standards were pretty basic English standard. You can have a look if you’d like:

The beds (where I ended up spending most of my time). Can you guess which is mine?

The simple hallway, leading to...

The simple hallway, leading to...

...the bathroom, where Jeanette is getting ready for hitting the town.

...the bathroom, where Jeanette is getting ready for hitting the town.

As I said, pretty basic.
And yes, I got sick. Pretty bloody darn sick.
A cold, to be exact. To such and extend that I had no voice, what so ever, only a slight whisper now and then, but even that would exhaust me. I could not lie in bed, as that would both make me unable to breath and sounding like Darth Vader, and whenever I got tired of sitting and wanted to shift position, I would need a 10 minute break to breath every time. So, I lost out on almost two days of outings and sight-seeing, and was left with the day we arrived, a couple of hours of the last night we were there, and of course my short trip to the postoffice the day we were to leave. Great.

But still, I felt like I was home.

The day we arrived, though, I got to do some exiting stuff. Karoline and I wen’t a little here and there, and of course, as we are both serial killer freaks, we had to stop by Old Bailey. And obviously, as we were going to such a neat place, I had to forget to bring my camera. Nice! -___- At least I got some pretty good pictures with my phone, luckily.

The fantastic building...

...and the small door, with Karoline.

...and the small door, with Karoline.

Bloody fantastic. I loved being there. To think of all the serial killers that were convicted there. Amazing.

So the trip wasn’t a complete disaster after all.
We even got to Kings Cross Station at one point, but then I had my camera. And since I’ve been a bit busy lately, I haven’t gotten around to get them on the computer. If asked for, I might upload them in a short post later on.

Now some bad news:

SOMEONE STOLE MY iPOD! 😮 😦
And by the sircumstandses, it seems like it have to be someone in my class.
Why the bloody hell would anyone want to do that?
It’s my iPod, for Christ’s sake! 😦

I hope it showes up soon.
Anyways, I have to file a raport to the police, so that I’d might get some money back from the insurance company. I want my iPod back.  😦

Good news:

I had to do a read-for-the-teacher thing, to check for progress or failure, and being smart, I chose to present my “Media Presentation” task, as it was a written text (I’m not sure, but I think it’d might qualify as a poem) about my most wonderful place. (Aka: the Tokio Hotel concert. xD)
Anyways, I ACED it! My teacher just looked at me and said “6”, before he shoved me out the door. Bloody brilliant!
I’m quite happy now. ^__^

Other news:

Being Human. Ever watched it? No? You should try. I mean, I am pretty tired of all the ‘vampires, werewolves and other supernatural things are cool’-stuff, but I quite fancy this one. The make-up and costumes aren’t always the best, but I sort of like the plot of it. A vampire, a ghost and a werewolf living togeter, trying to be human. I like it. And the “George” character. A white, nerdy dude… I don’t know why, but he has got me going! He’s so… adorable! =^__^=

Go for it!

So, what has been keeping me away from my promise?
Well, medications mostly. :p

I am taking a shot here, and guessing there is rather few of my friends who read this,
except the ones I have already told.
Two weeks ago, I got my gall stone surgery.
This has really been a bitch afterwards, I’ve had problems walking, been drugged down and out, had problems moving at all, made me dizzy and so on. When I finally seemed to get better, I got an infection in the largest wound. Great! Of course I had to get an infection! Why wouldn’t I? To get back on my feet would seem ridiculous, right? :p

So, at the very least, I went to the hospital to see what they could do(and what I should do), and it took the OVER SIX HOURS(!!!) to just LOOK at the wound. (Helsenorge, dere! 8D *happytardface*) And I had to get ultrasound check. Again. Twice in under a year?? I haven’t even got pregnant! Hah! Oh well.

Anyhow, I am still under recovery, and I am loathing every minute of it! (Okay, that’s a blatant lie. I’ve never watched so many interesting movies in my life! Movies, movies, movies! ❤ What would we sick people have done without them?) But I hate being sick, I hate having to sit still or lie still, and the very fact that even SHOWERING hurts (seriously, guys! PAIN!), and I will be SO glad when this is all over.

The reason why I don’t want to let to many people know about this though, is because now I can suddenly eat so much candy and sugar again, and everyone has kept promising that the minute I am well again, they will buy me this or that, or bake me all these different things, or take me with them so I can taste this or that. I do not want this. So I shall pretend that I still have a gallbladder, and that it’s still filled with gall stones, so they continue to avoid giving me these things.

No more candy

No more candy

I have seriously gained weight the last couple of months, and I’m constantly beating myself mentally for letting that happen. Last year I lost about 20-25 pounds! I looked a lot healthier. I need to lose those pounds again. And I am really motivated to go through with this now. If I don’t, I’ll end up as a big, fat version of Bill Kaulitz again, and I really don’t want that. So here we go healthy me.

Reform:
I WILL eat the lunch I bring to school from home.
I will NOT continue buying sodas at school.
I will TRY not to enter the school cafeteria again(I think this is one of the things that worked for me last time).
I will try to find a HEALTHIER option for candy when I am out with friends, at the cinema etc.
I WILL carry with me a bottle of squash from home, which I can fill up with water whenever I am out of squash.
I WILL go to the gym at least twice a week (as soon as I have recovered, that is).

I’ve been thinking about keeping my hair for a while now. Maybe I should save it from now on? Letting it grow out? What do you think? Could be fun to see how it’ll look, right? :p

Across the Pond

Across the Pond

The wonderful Across the Pond has now begun helping me with applying for schools in England! And I have decided what I want to go for. It’ll be Criminology! I have been super excited about it for a while now, since I’ve seen so many movies lately! “Silence of the Lambs”, “Hanibal”, “The Red Dragon” and the TV-series “Dexter” has been especially inspirational, and I SO want to focus on the criminal minds of serial killers! 😀

Yes, for those of you who don’t really know me, I am a “gore-freak”. I love serial killers, horror and thriller movies and I love sculls almost more than anything! I’ve got only one other friends who seems to understand my liking for these things. Please tell me I am not the only one?  Haha ^____^

And if you haven’t seen “Dexter”, I highly recommend it! If you like series like NYPD Blue, CSI: Miami, CSI: New York, Cops, criminal literature, or other previously mentioned things, this is the series for you! At least, I am hooked!

Dexter ❤

Now, I really want your input on the hair-thing. What do you think?

*Oh, and for the Bill Kaulitz reference: I have noticed I dress more and more black whenever I turn fat. xD

I must apologise, it seems like there will be no pictures in a while…
My PhotoShop will not work anymore, and I will not be able to upload these without some correction.

Gash -____-

But as soon as possible, I promise! There will be!

Now, it is saturday, and my younger cousin is here for a visit. She’s not too fond of me at the moment, seing that I’m drinking beer. xD Haha! That’ll be her problem.
Oh! And I forgot to post yesterday, I was stuck with homework >___<
…Being sick has more than one stupid side. Homework is one of them. Urk.

Have you watched Glee? Because I have. And I think that if you have NOT seen it yet YOUBETTERGETYOURFATARSEOUTOFTHATCHAIRANDGETAROUNDWATCHINGIT! It is a-ma-zing! With a capital ZING!
They even do Billy Idol songs there! *in love*
The cutest little series in a long while.

And a big ‘THANK YOU’ to all you new readers, I’ve been noting a drastic increase of you the last couple of days.
