What's keeping my busy

I never really buy CD's anymore, just like the rest of the world, but when my favorite band or artist comes out with new stuff, I'm always preordering the CD.
So when Pink's new album was available to preorder, I got on it.
The sucky part was that I had to wait a whole month until I had the CD in my hands.

I didn't listen to any songs from the album, because I have this thing where I love to sit down with a new and unheard album, shut off the rest of the world, and just listen to the music.
It's like therapy.
2012 has been a tough year and ''The Truth About Love'' felt like it was sent from heaven.
I really needed this right now.
Fantastic stuff!

So if you catch me with my headphones on dancing around somewhere, I'm most likely listening to this album.
As of right now, there's not much new to report so I'll just leave it at that.
Hope you guys had a great start to the week and I'll check back in a few days :)

August-September update

I've been a very bad blogger.
Don't really have an excuse, but I've worked a lot of overtime and had my hands filled with things to do at home.
Things seem to be slowing down a little now, unless I have to work overtime the entire next week.
I'm not complaining, though, cause like a lot of other people, I need the money.

But here is what I spent at least a whole week planning...

Mum and I had to go though all of our crap to throw away and the sad part is that we could probably fill up another one of these.
In my pile of stuff, I actually found some old shoes, bags and teddybears from way back in the day.
And since I'm not a fan of going down my own memorylane, I decided to give some of it away and throw the rest.
Now we only have a crapton of old boxes and a random lamp, which I believe belongs to me, but my lovely cat broke it.
I guess she learned the hard way that it wasn't something she could climb.
Made me laugh for a second, though.
Don't worry, she's still alive and well :)

In other news.....

My friend, Marcus, wanted to surprise his semi retarded gf (she's not really retarded), with a new white iPhone 4, because she's been wanting one for a very long time.
Little did he know that she had already bought one, so he asked me if I missed having an iPhone and offered to sell it to me for a VERY cheap price.

So guess what?

I have one.... AGAIN!
So now I have an iPod touch, two iPods, iPad and an iPhone.
Apple addict much?
iMac next?
I probably would of had one by now, but they are so expensive.
Maybe if I stopped buying so much makeup, I'd have enough to get one?
Speaking of makeup...

I failed miserably on the no makeup buy challenge, but I wouldn't really worry.
I'm so pissed at myself that I can't get myself buy even look at new releases, which is pretty insane.
But over to the biggest news this year...
Pink's new album The Truth About Love!
No wonder she's been my idol for 13 years.

Looking at the time and I have completely lost track of it.
It's amost bedtime for me now.
Because of my early start every morning, I have no problem going to bed around 8 pm.
Sounds strange, but I really need a lot of sleep.
So this is me signing off and hopefully I'll be able to keep up with my gorgeous blog ^_^

Goodnight :)

Sex, love and funbuddies!

So yesterday I was talking to a friend of mine about how sex and love are two different things.
It's definitely something that got me thinking.
Even so much, that I somehow managed to put my clothes on backwards this morning.
Totally off the topic, but still...

At work today, I tried to make some sense out of that conversation and maybe understand why things have changed over the last 6-8 decades.
A long time ago, sex was look on as a form of reproducing, not as an accessorie to love.
Love is emotions and sex is physical.
It's as easy as that.
Hence why a lot of people wouldn't have a problem sleeping around with people they don't have those feelings for.
Especially men.
(Not judging, though)

If you're with someone you love, the connection between you would be so much more intense than with just a random one night stand, but honestly, how many of us can say that we have time or even patience to wait around for that one person?
I can understand why the ''funbuddy'' rate is so high these days.
Maybe that's the way to go?
I honestly don't know, but according to friends it actually works out.
As long as both are adult enough to know what they're in for.
If you consider it, I say go crazy!

It's interesting to hear peoples opinions on this subject, because I can almost guarantee that there will be one person all for it and someone else calling everyone who lives ''like that'' a whore.
Kind of judgemental, but some people are.

So this is what I have had on my mind for the past 24 hours.
Kind of random, but what else do you expect from me?
I am aware that I could of gone on and on about so much more, but I really want to post this and go to bed :p

If you have anything to add to this, let me know :)

I got nothing

My lack of imagination resulted in a very lame blog title.
But anyways...
I was at the post office today to pick up a package and then they told there was another one waiting for me as well.
I was expecting one, but not before next week.
Apparently, it arrived a little earlier and I'm not complaining.
I did not order any makeup, but I invested in a bunch of skincare that I absolutely love and it is perfect for my skintype.

Seems like I got the entire skincare collection from Pure System and Sebo Specific from Yves Rocher.
No clue if I did, but I love it all.

It's safe to say that I'm pretty much set with skincare for the next couple of months.

I'm not going to lie, but I am so proud of myself that I didn't buy any makeup.
It may seem easy, but it's like a mental disease/obsession.
I cannot stop buying more and more, even though I have enough for everyone in Norway.
But thanks to a friend, I am now on the no makeup buy challenge until october 1st.
We shall see how that goes, but I am positive I'll make it.

I'm going to bring my iPad to bed and catch up on news before I go to sleep.
Have a good friday night people :)

When you hate what you see

Every girl has, at least once, in her life hated what she sees in the mirror.
In my experience, it can be because of low selfesteem, bullying and even because of your significant other.

I wouldn't say that my selfesteem is low, or has ever been, but of course I've doubted myself and what I look like just like everybody else.
So I didn't really know how to handle it when I was with someone who made me so unbelievable uncomfortable with myself.
It wasn't anything he did, just the way he made me feel.
Made me feel terrible, like I wasn't good enough, pretty enough, smart enough.

For some reason, I always get insecure when I'm in a relationship with a guy.
I start putting myself down, worry about my weight and how I look.
I'm completely clueless to why it's like this, but I know that it will probably haunt me until I die.

I don't wish it on anyone, but a part of me hopes that I'm not the only one with this ''problem''.
 If you can relate, please let me know so I can feel less like a freak.
(Really needed to get this of my chest, by the way)

But anyways...

Ever since I ended the relationship, I've slowly gone back to my old self, but those annoying feelings are still there.
I just need more time, I guess.
Been trying my hardest to focus on work and my possible moving plans, which is much needed.
New town and new people sounds so amazing.
All I need is to find a job and hopefully the rest will fall into place.

But speaking of falling...
I'm heading to bed before I pass out..
Been having this horrible headache all day and it's pretty obvious that my mind needs a break.
Oh the joys of overthinking things..

Hope you'll have an awesome week :)

Protect Yo iPad

Since I got my iPad, which is my current boyfriend, I've wanted to find a cute case for it so I could travel with it easier.
So I was literally jumping on my tiny chair when I find one on sale.

They had it in black too, but oddly enough, that one wasn't on sale.
Guess no one wanted to pink case, so they just put it on sale to get rid of it.
Sad really, but I'm glad I got my hands on it.

Another one?

As some of you may know, I like to read and I currently have 5 new books I haven't read yet.
So when I noticed that I had to wait 45 minutes for the next bus home, I went to the bookstore and bought a new one.
I didn't have the book I'm reading at home with me, or my iPad, so I had the choice to sit on my ass for almost an hour without doing anything or buy a book.
I know I'm a lazy person, but I'm too restless to not do anything while I'm sitting down.
But anyways, the book I found seemed perfect for my ''situation'' these days.

Its about new beginnings and change. 
Very fitting, I must say.
It was released in 2010 and I'm surprised that I haven't seen this before, since I'm a fan of Paulo's books.
But I'm glad I found this today.
