Hi all! The first rule of blogging should be to blog. Which I have violently broken. On more than one occasion. Sorry. To be honest, I don’t know how much blogging drive I have in me. The reason for this is that my head is filled with crap. Stupid, worrying, whiny, heavy stuff. I am currently in the point of life in which people always reference back to later in life. “I remember the time in my life when I had no money, few to turn to, and the future was a big gaping hole of uncertainty.” Yeysies! In two months my money will be gone, my education will be over, and I will be left to trying to succeed in a profession where people rarely do, living in a flat I cannot afford, in a country without family, Elise and Melkesjokolade. Getting a bit tired of being brave. Safe sounds good right about now. Other than that, I’m good!
Been to New York, which truly was insanely cool. I ate pasta in Little Italy, saw the Statue from the Staten Island ferry, went to the tiniest jazz club in SoHo, sang Bad Romance in a duet with random gay guy in karaoke bar in Times Square, got lost on the subway and ended up in Spanish Harlem after dark, ate a hot dog, visited some amazing agencies, crossed (lie) the Brooklyn Bridge, got caught in a thunderstorm and was a spontaneous audience member on the David Letterman show! Got to see Johnny Knoxville, Stephen Colbert and the Gorrilaz. And of course David and the annoying bald guy. Funsies! Did ok with the jetlag, actually slept most of the way back. And it was pretty cool to be in NY to then come “home” to London. Felt all globetrottery. But Jen had me beat, as she jumped straight on the eurostar to Paris the next morning.
Oh, and I also went to a Norwegian night in London, got tipsy on a monday and watched the Social Network. Not in the same day, though. Tomorrow I’m going out in Londontown, and I must say I am rather excited. Will hopefully blog soon, but more hopefully get loads of pennies in my pocket soon. One of the two should be doable.
Keep it real.
I cannot believe the amount of people still checking this blog on a daily basis. I kind of assumed that after a week, I would be faded like a rub on tattoo. I am hugely flattered, and utterly mortified over the fact that I allowed it to go this far before updating. I have done some stuff since I last blog entry, but suprisingly little all in all. Working on our portfolio takes up a lot of time, and dissertation times sucks all the joy of writing out of me.
I went to Southampton the other week, to visit Morten, Karianne and Mariann who just moved down there for their BA senior year. It was so nice to see them all again, can’t believe how long it had been. Didn’t seem like it though, it was just like the good old Trondheim days. Southampton was a good little town as well, packed with shops and restaurants on a charming little high street. Good weekend!
Last week, I went back to Norway. My family was supposed to come over here, but we found out that flying me over there instead was a little more beneficial for everyone involved. It was a lovely relaxing long weekend, and so nice to get a tiny sliver of the norwegian autumn. Pretty leaves everywhere! Came back yesterday, and one week from now, we will be heading for New York!
Hey crazy party people! Missed ya. No, I did. Really.
Today I FINALLY got to talk to my sisters again. Just for a brief fleeting moment on Skype, but it sure was nice. Lucky to have ended up with those two. Go mom and dad for that. When you have sisters like mine, you end up missing them a lot when spending a fair share (98%) of your time abroad. Hopefully they will come see me in London soon, but understandable, that’s not easybreazycovergirl to get off the ground. School and such, ye know. MissMissMISS.
I am rediscovering Twitter. Which makes me undiscover my blog these days. Not good. Amazingly, people are still checking it, so total abandonment is out of the question. Besides, I like my blog. It’s kinda cute. Not too loud, no flashing lights, just a simple WordPress generated site. I will get another blog, though. Don’t freak out, it’s just for professional purposes, and will not replace this one. At least not yet.
Not much is going on these days. We are supposed to write our dissertation, but the thing is that we need to turn to the almighty Internet to do research for it. And the research for my topic is easily transferrable to fun stuff. And fun stuff that is still vaguely related is just so much more entertaining. Not good.
Today it is raining, and I’m spending the day reading my new book “Art Direction Explained. At last!”
I now am back in the game of Twittering. I’ve had the account for a good period of time now, but when I noticed that my tweets were actually starting to disappear in my lack of involvement, I decided to get back in the game. Mainly rubbish on it, but follow me anyway. All the cool kids are doing it.
I feel like I’m in a whirlwind. No, I feel like I’m in a tornado. But in the center of the tornado, where everything is eerily quiet. I’m standing perfectly still, and around me people are flying round, tractors and cows everywhere. And as I’m about to take the step into the cow-twirling madness, I need to enjoy that one last moment of standing just perfectly still.
