So I ended up spending xmas with my mum even though I didn't really want to.
Same thing with my grandparents.
Every year on the 23rd we got to Ballangen, which is a 45 minute drive from where we live, and decorate the graves of people I don't even know/remember.
It's become this lame and insanely boring tradition, but I told them that this year would be my last.
As of next xmas, I'm going to start my own tradition and hopefully I would get a bigger apartment on the other side of town by then.
I really want to celebrate xmas in England next year but I'm not getting my hopes up.
I'm not even going to plan it, cause everytime I plan something, it just goes right down the shitter.
When it comes to my dream of living in England, I'll just have to be patient.
That's easier said than done.
I gave Anna a bath today and she really wasn't in the mood of a shower.
I'm tempted to rename her Spike because she looks like one of them fishes that blow up and have spikes all over.
No clue what they are called.
She looks so cute when she jumps out of the bathtub, stares at the door and almost starts singing.
I didn't really catch the lyrics, but I think it was something like this:
"Wade in the water"
No, I'm not being racist.
Not my fault that my cat is black.
No seriously, I'm not a racist, but can you really blame me for being a little "scared"?
Everytime something happens and you hear about it on the news, there always someone with a different culture behind it all.
I'm just giving my own personal opinion.
I have a lot of black friends and I'm not treating them any different than I treat my other friends, so don't even try to call me racist.
Enough of this subject though.
I'm going to have dinner with mum in about an hour and after that my bestfriend is picking me up to go bowling.
Looking forward to that :)
I gotta jet though, so I'll catch ya'll lovely oreos later!
Monday, 21 December 2009
After trying for like 45 minutes (which is some kind of a record for me, cause if I don't get to sleep I can't stay in bed) I got up, had a shower and all that usual stuff.
Now, I'm just sitting here scratching my ass waiting for the stores to open.
Can you tell I'm tired?
I'm so tired now that I'm listening to goofy music like vengaboys, aqua, westlife and a1.
Don't judge me!
Anyone remember the musicvids from vengaboys?
Apparently, there's a lot about them that I forgot.
I was like 10-11 years old when they were ''big'' and the vids are kinda pervy and slutty.
Just look at the video thumbnail.
The music is catchy though.
It's past 6 am now and I'm starting to notice that I haven't slept yet.
Sitting here all alone singing sex on the beach as loud as I can.
I swear Anna just shook her head at me xD
It's pretty bad when your friggin cat thinks you've lost it.
I need a drink..
No wait, I have quite a few of those last night..
Thursday, 17 December 2009
I'm writing a whole blog post about my cat.
Once we're on the subject, I might just add that she drove me mad last night.
For the first three months I had her, she always slept in my bed, which left me very little space to sleep on.
Now, I'm trying to get her off the thought of even jumping in my bed in the morning, which is a total FAIL!
I even made her a bed with pillows and blankets and stuff.
Does she sleep in it?
She sits in the chair next to my bed and stares at me until I fall asleep.
Then, the little bastard sneaks in my bed and don't think I would notice if she shoves her ass in my face.
Every night I wake up at least 25 times to put her back in bed and then return to mine. Nightmare!
But when you're this cute, you get away with murder xD
I think I took it on Halloween.
For once, I actually managed to take a pic where Anna looks decent.
She always looks away, sneeze or close her eyes.
This was taken the day I got her :)
That was a good day!
She's even sleeping in my bed already xD
She also follows me everywhere.
Here she's on her way after me in the bathroom.
I tried a new app on my iPhone that's called iVideoCamera and I didn't think I would be able to film with my 3G, but now I can :)
Here's she is sleeping in that god damn chair:
Some say she looks scary and might have to agree, but I know her and she's nowhere near being scary.
I have a few things to do before I can sit down and listen to Phoenixfm for 4 hours.
See ya lovely cupcakes!
Sunday, 13 December 2009
Started Christmas shopping on Friday and I managed to get everything done in one day.
I must admit I'm pretty pleased with myself.
I did buy something I promised myself I wouldn't buy, but when I found one thing it kinda led to another.
Yeh, I bought a shitload of makeup.
But I've always wanted a case with different eyeshadows.
I did get some good news this week, by the way.
My bestfriend, Ann-Cathrin, is pregnant :D
I am wicked excited and I know that she's going to be an awesome mom.
She's one of those ''tiny'' girls who always wears high heels and now she's starting to notice that her feet are very swollen.
So before we started our shopping on Friday, she had to take a shoebreak.
She's gonna hate me for posting this picture, but whatever :p
She knows I love her! <3
I didn't really do a lot on Saturday.
Had a lazy day and just relaxed with a movie and almost a whole bottle of wine.
Apparently, Anna loves Ice Age just as much as I do.
Didn't even think that was possible, but she was watching the entire movie.
I swear I could hear her laugh.
What's been going on today?
Well, I've been spending most of my day with Ann-Cathrin and we've been driving around for about 5 hours.
I'm so dizzy now that I think I'm gonna have a 12 hour nap very soon.
I hope you all had a great weekend :)
See ya'll laters!
Wednesday, 9 December 2009
The funny part is that when I looked at the name of the person who posted the ad, I found out that she was the previous owner of my cat, Anna.
So I called her up and said that I was interested in the job.
Apparently, she was very happy because she knows me and she can trust me, which is good :)
So we're gonna meet up next week and discuss further.
If I end up with less hours than I need, I might have to get another part time job as well.
There's no chance in hell that I'm keeping my current one.
Makes me sick just thinking about it.
Now, that I have one problem less to worry about, I can focus on getting my crib ready for Xmas :)
Looks like a shothole!
I did sort my closet out yesterday.
Threw away a bunch of old clothes and the rest I'm going to give to charity.
No need to throw away decent clothes that still be can worn.
Just found this picture.
When in the UK I always complaining about my 1 hour jetlag, so when she got back she sent me this:
Very Classy, Vanda! :p
But I gotta start cleaning my desk again.
The only thing, besides the kitchen, that always gets messy the day after a big cleanup.
I don't get it.
See ya laters lovely cupcakes!
Sunday, 6 December 2009
Everything went in the shitter after I go back from England and I just realized what I had to do to finally enjoy a speck of my life.
I've been hanging out with two of my bestfriends this weekend and they both now have their own place, fulltime job and one of them are even getting married next summer.
After just spending a few hours with them, I get inspired to do better.
I always feel like I never do enough and I might be right.
So tomorrow, I'm going to sit down and write my CV and send out a few applications.
I just need to get that out of my head cause it's the one thing that worries me these days.
The fact that I don't have contact with my mum doesn't even bother me anymore.
It's like it's time to let her go or more like her letting me go.
She's one of those insanely overprotective parents, and even now when I'm 21, she still doesn't want to hear talk about me drinking alcohol and staying out late.
Guess that's what I get for being an onlychild and she being a singlemom.
But back to the point:
If I can just get a job and start saving up money, I think I'll be allright.
I always seem to worry about money and how I'm suppose to manage and I pretty much spent all of my savings on the planeticket to England.
I don't regret it, by the way.
That trip opened my eyes to something bigger and I instantly clicked with the place and I knew that a part of me would always belong there.
So not only did I get the trip of a lifetime, I also found out where I wanted to end up in the future.
I've also found out that I'm awesome at planning years ahead, but not so awesome planning what to do in 5 minutes.
This blog is getting way too long and I'm starting to rant, which is not good.
Here's a pic of me taken earlier today.
I'm wearing the awesome Heavy Load tshirt :)
Almost time for bed..
Nite lovely cupcakes!
Friday, 4 December 2009
This is pretty much why I never really wear high heels.
It's even worse if you've had a big enough amount of alcohol that makes you unable to even walk straight in flat shoes.
So I never mix heels and too much booze.
Don't get me wrong, I do like wearing heels, but I also like being able to walk properly.
Well, as properly as I can sober.
I've often been told that I look slightly tipsy when I walk.
I don't know.
I suddenly had this urge to go out and buy something to eat and come home and watch a movie.
Just to have something to do for three hours.
Wednesday, 2 December 2009
I'm still alive and I'm trying as good as I can to deal with the crap I have in front of me.
I've gone through a lot for being this young and I just keep wondering when it all is going to end and something good would come along, for once.
It may sound like I'm giving up, but HELLO?!?
I'm from Narvik and we're known for being strong..
Well, at least I am..
When I feel like absolute crap and nothing can get darker, I always seem to find pictures that just puts a huge smile on my face.
Here's a few examples:
Vanda, Nigel, me and Richard and Juliana in the background.
Picture was taken at Brentwood Theater on the 15th of November.
Heavy Load gig :D
After like 5 years, I still find this insanely amusing..
Can you blame me?
James and Francesca at the airport on the 17th of November.
They were dropping this lovely lady off :)
Me, James and Francesca at the Hafdis Huld gig on the 18th of November.
It was awesome and especially since we got to meet her.
I know for sure that this was a huge moment for James :p
And here's the last one for now.
The lovely people I got to spend most of my time with while in Brentwood/Hutton/London (is that enough slashes?).
Is it just me or do we all look a bit uncomfortable?
I thought so..
I'm hanging in there and I'm literally living off of my creativity.
Trying to focus on my youtube videos, blog and other stuff that just makes me happy.
Thanks for the support, cupcakes <3
See you next time!
Tuesday, 1 December 2009
That's my situation right now and I'm pretty clueless.
All I want is to pack all my stuff, leave and never come back.
Sounds very depressing and if nothing changes very soon, I might end up on the dark side again.
I was very depressed for over 3 years and I was struggling with everything.
Now when I basically have nothing left, I seem to head over to that side I hate so much.
All of my friends have their own family and I don't want to bug anyone.
Maybe I'll just stream live on stickam?
For now, I have no idea.
It sucks but I'm not used to things going my way.
Gotta jet though.

My familysituation is a bloody nightmare and I'm just fed up.
I miss everyone in Brentwood and I can't wait to get back.
Too bad I have to wait to June before I can visit again :(
Here's my favorite picture of all time, btw:
Me and Vanda with the lovely chaps from Stick Around For Joy at the Heavy Load gig <3
Best night of my life!
We stayed with Mel, Dan and two cats :)
Thanks again for letting us stay at your place, guys.
Miss you :)
After the Heavy Load gig we went to Nigel's house and made pizza at around midnight:
Fun times :)
No wonder I love these guys.
By the way:
I've decided that I'm going to quit school.
Before you start judging me I just gotta say that school has always been difficult for me and I've never been good at it.
That doesn't make me dumb, but lets face it, not everyone is cut out for school.
I know what I can do and I know what I can't do and school is one of those things I can't handle.
Can't imagine what my mum will say when she finds out, but she's going to freak out.
But as always, she can't put herself in my shoes and understand what I go through.
But enough of the schoolchat.
Makes me depressed.
There's nothing in the world that makes me more depressed than school and it's not because I don't like it, but it's because I'm not schoolsmart.
Makes me feel like an ass!
Now I can focus on my maingoal and that is to get the hell away from this place and hopefully end up in Brentwood ASAP!
All I can do now, is to work my ass off, save up money and I'm outta here suckers!
Since I don't have school during the day, I'm hoping I can start being as creative as I want with my youtube vids and actually learn how to edit a friggin video.
I might be a tech geek, but all I know of editing is windows movie maker and that is LOW!
Don't judge me.
Well, I gotta dash lovely cupcakes...

The Rise Against gig was awesome!
Not to mention me almost laughing my ass off because of that dancing baboon who was standing in front of us.
Glad he had a good time, though.
I know I had an amazing time, but I kinda felt bad for James.
I was complaining about my fucking, yet gorgeous shoes, rain and the fact that I had to leave the next day.
Could only post one picture from blogwriter on my iphone :(
I'll upload more when I get back home.
Sitting in Oslo bored out of my mind and I just want to pick up my stuff and Anna and move to Brentwood ASAP!
It's wierd but I felt this instant connection when I got there and I knew that it was my future hometown.
Apparently, Vanda feels the same way.
Wouldn't it be insane if I just out of the blue, picked up my entire life and moved to England?
I can hear my mum saying:
"Melissa, you have completely lost what's left of your mind!"
I already miss everyone and it's going to be sad waking up in depressing Narvik tomorrow.
The only good thing is that I get to see Anna again.
Flight now boarding.

I was so excited when we got to KFC on Sunday that I think it was so obvious to everyone else that I am "foreign".
But who cares?
The food was amazing and I gotta go back before I leave.
Don't really have anyting to do today before around 8 when I'm going to phoenix for 4 hours.
It's going to be so wierd being on stick around for joy with Vanda in the chatroom and not with us in the studio.
Oh well, maybe next time.
I'm definitely coming back next summer.
Time for a shower and then breakfast.
Tatas cupcakes xx
Wednesday, 18 November 2009
Lets just say that I don't regret it for one second.
Coming here has been the best the most exciting thing ever happening to me and I am not kidding when I say I wanna move here.
Even Vanda agreed, while jumping up and down saying ''Yes Yes!''.
I'm uploading a few short vids on youtube now and I've already uploaded over 70 pics on facebook.
Check'em out here:
I feel like I have a lot to say, but the wierd thing is that I'm lost for words.
This is beyond everything!
Maybe my mum was right when she said:
''Melissa, this is madness! You know you're not suppose to meet anyone you talk to online. It's the rules.''
But then again, I've never been a fan of the rules.
I know, very punk right?
Anyways, I'll try to post a few pictures from my iphone when I get back.
I also haven't been tweeting as much as I use to, but it's nice to take a little break from my usual habits.
Gotta jet though.
Seeing Hafdis Huld live in London tonight.
Tatas lovely cupcakes xx
Thursday, 12 November 2009
And when I say first flight, I don't mean first flight of the day, cause I have to change plane in Oslo, but first flight EVER!
So me landing on the biggest airport in the world is a nice first for me..
I seriously can't wait and I'll be tweeting my ass off.
I'm going to be vlogging from day to day, so I need to borrow a computer so I can post them on youtube.
Keep up with the insane trip here:
I'll also blog from my iphone ^_^
But I gotta jet if I want to finish packing.
England here I come :)
Tatas for now xx

I've always wanted to get a tattoo, but there's never been a good time to get one.
Besides, it's wicked expensive.
I would have loved to get one in London, but it's not in my budget.
Maybe next time.
This is not the first and last time I'm going to England.
My love for Brits started when I was around 4 or 5 years old, when I discovered Monty Python.
The funny thing is that I didn't have any problems understanding the humour.
At first my mum thought I was kidding, but then I explained to her what they were saying, she thought she had given birth to a genius.
Too bad I had to let her down!
When it comes to the tattoo's and which one I want, I obviously looked at this star.
Then I thought about getting 1988 on my wrist.
I don't want a lot of colours or those huge ass tats.
Small and simple is good.
In other news:
I've had a few things on my mind and I don't know if I should just write a blog or make a video about it.
Don't have time right now so I'll just have to wait and see.
So while you guys wait, feel free to check out and subscribe to my youtube channel.

I know that 21 isn't old, but I've been through a lot in my lifetime and I guess that's what makes me feel older.
I started to think about how I would be/look like in 50 years and I just found my future self.
Once a bad hairday, always a bad hairday.
At least I kept my sense of humour.
Noticed that I didn't say good sense of humour?
I figured I'd spare people that.
I think I have a good sense of humour, but I have been told that I need to grow up.
I am an adult with a childish sense of humour.
Get off me, people!
I still find burping, farting (in movies only) and Tom & Jerry funny.
When it comes to the farting stuff, I'm really grossed out by people (guys mostly) that fart in public, at the dinnertable and everywhere else.
We all do that but can I at least get a warning before you fire off a nasty one?
It's actually been proven that everyone fart up to 15 times a day without even knowing it.
That's your wierd fact for the day.
I gotta get ready for today.
Woke up at 9 am.
ON A SUNDAY?!?
Yes, I did.
Have to find my pants first, though.
Catch ya'll laters!
Thursday, 5 November 2009
At first I thought this picture was fake, but apparently they were sitting there at 4.30 am waiting for the place to open.
Not 4.30 pm but AM!
Are they mad?
Well, that's kinda obvious, but how hungry do you have to be to get up that early just to buy a crappy McDonalds burger?
Oh those Americans!
Gotta love them
Speaking of "are you serious?":
I got up this morning and took a shower, got dressed and I even found my pants straight away, but then I sat on my and fell asleep.
Woke up and it was too late to catch the bus.
That's got me written all over it.
I'm getting used to this blogging from my iPhone thing and I think I'm going to continue doing it.
But I gotta jet!
Need to feed my lovely strawberry cheesecake AKA my cat, Anna
Wednesday, 4 November 2009
See you soon pc charger.
So I'm now stuck without a computer.
I have to find a new one today!
Can't go a day without phoenixfm and my other lovely sites.
Praise Steve Jobs for iPhone <3
I saw this picture on the epic fail app (the third love of my life) and I just couldn't stop laughing.
The only problem is that I saw it during a lecture.
Lets just say that everyone thought I had lost it!
My only answer was: Maybe I have!
Next class starting now btw.
Catch ya'll laters.
Tuesday, 3 November 2009
Got it from the epic fail app.
One of the best pics I've ever seen.
This shows how big of a nerd I am.
Only geeks find epic, fail and win this funny, but I like it like that.
I'm stuck at school right now and I'm trying to pay attention, but it's so boring that I'm close to falling asleep.
I never really been schoolsmart, but I'm streetsmart and selftaught when it comes to pretty much everything.
so I'm basically crawling through this year.
But I gotta jet.
Teacher being a c**t and a half.

I was skyping for about 5 hours with the lovely Vanda last night and while I was talking to her I was just goofing around with Anna.
When I took this picture, she was playing with my iphone cable and were drooling all over it.
Kinda nasty though, but I have at least 3 of those so it doesn't really matter.
While everybody else is out having fun at different Halloween parties, I'm staying home watching scary movies and eating unhealthy crap.
I really wanted to dress up and stuff but didn't really feel it today.
So for all of you lovely people that are going out tonight, have fun :)
Thursday, 29 October 2009
Some are from dailybooth and other random ones.
Having a movie night with a mate.
Anna after her bathroom visit.
The thing about her is that I never hear her when she's behind me, so I've almost stomped on and even kicked her a few times because I turn around and there she is.
She's adorable though.
Posted this on dailybooth with the comment:
''This is not a good sign!''
I got a lot of response about this pic on dailybooth, myspace and on twitter.
It's time for me to say goodnight now :)
Wednesday, 28 October 2009
Most of the people that know me knows that I don't like skinny women, but I don't like those kind of bodybuilder women either.
This is from a Norwegian gossip site, by the way.
I don't really know how I feel about this look, but it's almost too much.
At least I think so.
It's awesome that she managed to get in shape after the birth of her second child, but some women get addicted to looking great and work out waaaaay too much and end up looking like a man.
That's just scary.
You have any thoughts on women and bodybuilding?
Sharing is caring! ^_^
I gotta jet :)

I'm so sure of that.
Oh and by the way, I'm blogging from my iPhone so I have no idea how this will look on the computer.
All good I hope.
But over to what I was saying before.
Just look at her.
She's gorgeous and kind but those eyes really creep me out sometimes.
Especially if I wake up in the middle of the night and find her face to face with me.
I nearly shit my pants once.
I do love her and that got me thinking, since there's no one here for me to date, is it legal to marry a pet? LOL
Don't ask, btw!
And someone's late for work.
Dammit, catch ya'll laters!
Monday, 26 October 2009
She's creative, beautiful, talented, goofy and serious :)
Lets start with one of her most popular videos.
Lady GaGa ''Pokerface'' tutorial :)
This is one of my favorites.
And her newest video that she posted about 2 days ago and its already been seen by 1,076,563 people.
Keep doing what your doing, Michelle.
Love your work :)
Sunday, 25 October 2009
Well, 4 big ones.
My friend had one more drink than me and she was very tipsy :)
She gets all giggly and cute and can talk to strangers about EVERYTHING.
She even started talking about her insane earwax growth.
There's just some things I don't want to know, but she just kept going on about her earwax.
So in the end, I just had to laugh.
But now I'm getting sidetracked again because of the earwax thing.
After that she wanted to get a hot dog, so we dropped by a gas station and some random dude tried to pick me up.
He was really nice and all, but so not my type.
And when I say he's not my type, I mean he's not british/english ^^,
Just got a text from a friend asking where his hangover is.
Apparently he had a lot to drink and he was sure that he would feel like ass today, but he's even been working out, making dinner and cleaning the bathroom.
Nice work, man.
I didn't really know how I would feel when I woke up this morning, but I feel good :)
Been in a great mood all day, so I can't really complain.
Anyways, it's about 5 pm now and I have some homework that I have to finish till tomorrow.
Have a good one :)
Friday, 23 October 2009
Got like 4 assignments that have to be done by Monday and I know for sure that I won't spend my weekend doing them.
But as I thought, I would find something to distract me.
I'm now reading in a Norwegian magazine about blogging:
Apparently, everyone have their own blog these days.
Well, besides my mum.
She doesn't even have a cellphone.
She's convinced that cellphones are going to kill people in the end and she might be right.
There's no way in hell that I could imagine my life with no phone, so I might as well be dead without it.
That really sounds horrible though.
But I'm very sure that I'm not the only one.
We're all tech obsessed in one way.
If you're not a geek/nerd like me, you would still be addicted to technological things like the computer, TV and so on.
We're all geeks at some point.
This is me trying to make the term geek normal. (kudos for trying?)
I have to show you a cute pic of me and my so called ''daughter'' Anna
Haha I know!
She's got my hair!
Well, I really have to continue with my homework if I want to finish it today.
Catch ya'll laters!
