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.

The day after....

I celebrated my birthday yesterday with the smallest splash in the history of small splashes.
I did have dinner with my mum and then cakes and stuff later in the afternoon, but there is something about not doing anything on my birthday that I love.
I wish I could explain it, but I'm just lazy.

Anyways, I did get a few things yesterday:

I got this, along with a giftcard from Kicks, from my mum.
I've been wanting this oil painting of the lovely Marilyn Monroe for a few months and I love it.

I recieved my new pair of converse shoes in the mail as well.
These are SO beautiful!
Two years of waiting is finally over.
Can't believe how difficult it was to find these in my size.
They always had them in the other sizes but never in mine.
So frustrating!
But now they're here and I can't wait to wear them.

I am now off to dinner my a friend.
So hungry I could eat... A whole pizza?
Oh yes!

Flower power!

Week one of my vacation is now over.
I still have two more to go, though, so I am in no way complaining.
The one thing I have to complain about is that it's been raining non stop for over a week.
So that means I haven't been able to use my summer clothes yet.

I did, however, go for a walk friday morning and it was so nice.

A little cloudy, but that's the kind of weather I like.
I would love to see some sunshine on wednesday next week, seeing that it's my birthday and I want to wear my new dress when I go out.
The weather here in Norway is very unstable, so it might just rain for the rest of the summer.
Like it did the summer of 09.
Fun fun fun...

Guess I'll just have to wait and see :)

''Old'' favorites rediscovered

I'm finally off work for the next three weeks, so that means more time to do things like updating my blog.

So what have I been doing this weekend?
Gone through my entire CD collection and started ripping all of my music to my iTunes library.
I don't have that many, but it would be nice to have everything in one place.
Especially since I use my ipods more than the CD's.
Besides, my stereo is probably going to heaven soon.

If you know anything about me, then you'll know that I am hopelessly in love with Gavin Degraw.
More in his music, but he's amazing all around.
So naturally, I've been listening to all of his CD's these past few days and I've re fallen in love with him.
He is seriously one of the most underrated musicians right now and I really wish that more people knew of him.
But no matter...

Over to something completely different, though...
Have I ever told you how much I HATE the summer/sun?
Well, I really do.
I'm sitting here covered in sunrash and it itches like a mofo!
I did some research online and since I'm so pale, I should avoid the sun.
I cannot tell you how much that sucks.
I'm not a fan of the heat, but it would be nice if I could walk out the door for 5 minutes without having to worry about getting a rash.
So it looks like I have to pile on a bunch of clothes in the heat to avoid it, on top of wearing a very high SPF.
My entire neck is covered with red dots and I swear I'm going to itch myself to death.
Sounds so gross and it is, so I'm just going to leave this subject and shut up.

Even though, I had dinner before noon today, I'm going to make something to eat now.
I have so much to do, but I need some fuel before I can continue.


I hope ya'll are having a fantastic day and I will get out of your hair.

Package overload!

I recieved three packages in ONE day last week.
I was so happy I didn't know what to do with myself.
First thought was to take pictures of it all.

A few blushes, a huge eyeshadow palette, a backup foundation, awesome shoelaces and a cool fridgemagnet :)
Oh so random!
The only ''problem'' is that it's summer here now and I barely wear makeup in the summer.
I have extremely oily skin and it gets worse as the weather changes from winter to summer.

I'm currently jobhunting and looking for a small apartment in Hønefoss.
You know when you get to the point where you just hate everything and everyone?
I was there about 2 months ago and now I'm finally getting my head out of my ass and actually doing something to get the hell out of here.
Might take me a few months to actually make the move, mostly because I need to save up a little more money.
So that means no more shopping for me.
I know I say it all the time, but I am motivated right now.
It sounds awful, but I'm in the middle of a life and death situation.
Staying here will kill me.

Enough depressing stuff for today..
I need to catch some sleep.
I'm completely worn out and I need energy for tomorrow.
Finally friday!

WTF happened?

I wish I could explain this, but I just can't:

Had my hair up in a bun all day and I randomly took it down just now.
Made me giggle, but at the same time, made me want curls even more.

When my bleached part is all gone, I'll probably try out a curly style.
It's the only thing I haven't tried yet.

Must have longer hair, though.
Might end up looking like Wanda Sykes if I went through with it now.
Not dissing!
I'm a huge fan of hers <3
But I probably woldn't love her hairstyle on myself.

I'm craving food and a cup of tea.
Might throw in a few pics from my weekend in Hønefoss, but right now I'm too lazy.

Goodnight people xx

I'm going to Oslo!

Can you tell I'm excited to get up at 3.15 am tomorrow?
I'm going to Hønefoss/Oslo for the weekend to visit a friend.
Shame that I missed Justin Beiber, who was in Oslo yesterday.
Going to be great to finally go somewhere for the first time in... Over a year...
Sucks that I have to get up so early, though.

I probably wont get much sleep tonight, but I still have to go to bed right about.... Now!

Waiting sucks!

I am currently waiting for three things:

- The new season of True Blood
- My Oslo trip next weekend
- For Tele2 to activate my new simcard

If you know me well enough, you'd know that I HATE Tele2.
Absolutely hate them.
So for me to switch from the nice operator I have to the one I hate, is insane.
But I'm switching over for the Nokia E6 in white.

The most gorgeous phone ever!

I stole this from google, but it doesn't do the phone justice.
It is so much more sexy in real life.
And yes, I called it sexy.
I guess I should find a name for it.
Any suggestions?

I told myself and almost everyone I know, that I wouldnt buy this unless I found a great deal for a 12 month contact.
And I did.
I just had to smack myself in the face, man up and switch to Tele2.

Totally worth it, though.
Been playing with the phone for a few days now and its amazing!
Screw iPhone!
They will activate my simcard around noon tomorrow.
Can't wait to put my Nokia C3 on the shelf.

Oh and packing....
Apparently, it is hot as a ballsack in Oslo already so I better pack light.
Don't even know what to wear to my friend's birthday party on friday, but I'll figure something out :)

I hit a shitkid... Almost!

I know I'm a typical vampire.
Meaning I hate sunlight, but this morning when I was on my way to work, I couldn't help myself and I had to take a few pics of the weather.

Naturally, the quality of the pictures aren't that great, seeing that I took them with my cellphone.
But at least you can tell what the weather was like in my town before 7 this morning.

Work was pretty much the same.
The kids running around in the hallway, worried about exams, changing schools and all of those kinds of things.
My job?
Cleaning up their crap and not to mention taking their crap...
A snotty bitch gave me some serious attitude yesterday and I was THIS close to knocking her out and shave her head.
She'd look even dumber without hair.

Slightly mean, but some of these kids has to be on some sort of crack.
Most of you know how teens can be, but sometimes I feel bad for them.
I can't remember being judgemental, mean and selfish when I was their age.
Nothing I can do about it, other than hoping that karma will come back and bite them in the ass.

I was so ready for bed when I came home from work, but then I had promised mum that we would take a little trip to town and do some shopping and have dinner and such.
Was actually a very nice day to walk around so I didn't really mind, even though I was completely exhausted.
I did also, I don't know how, manage to come home without buying ANY makeup or makeup related items, which is absolutely insane!
Hopefully, my obsession is slowing down and I can actually focus on using the stuff I have before I buy something new.

Anyways, this has been a very long day and I'm ready to hit the sack and sleep for 12 hours.
I probably won't, but since it's Norway's National Day tomorrow, I'm off work and can do whatever I bloody want :)

My week of/in Hell

This week has been one of the hardest weeks of my life.
Almost beat that week I spent in the hospital when I had gone through my first cancer surgery.
Now, I wont go into any details, but lets just say that I won't be moving to the US after all.
I hate myself for making the decision and I hate the outcome, but I had no idea how to solve the problems.
If I could, I would!
I made the decision I felt was right for me and I do regret it, but at the same time I'm much more relaxed and less worried.

I thought I wouldn't be able to laugh, or even smile for days, but then I came to work and saw this written on the wall above the toilet:
And I just cracked up!
It still makes me giggle a week later.

I've had a tough week, though, but I have a feeling I'm not the only one.

I love you,W <3
I miss you even more now, than I did before.
If that's even possible.

Finally back!

I am finally back with a new computer.
Been using my iPod touch for all of my internet things for almost a month and a half, so I am happy to be back on a proper laptop.
The one I bought is called... Let me check... Asus K53E... I think...

I will update more in a few days, but right now I have to focus on work and other things at home.

See you guys around :)

Drunk gamer?

Yeah, I'm sitting here at 3.30 pm drinking gin and tonic and playing pokemon black.
I had some gin in the kitchen and I bought some tonic water last week, so I figured I'd make myself a drink.

I'm gaming like cray cray these days to prepare for the Pokemon League.
Need to level up all of the pokemon I've catched and get them up to at least level 35.
Definitely a good way to kill time when I'm bored.
Usually I can play for almost 4 hours without looking at the time.
Probably not a good thing, though.

I should feed the cat.
She going slightly mad in the kitchen.

Friday, 30 March 2012

I'm still here!

Both of my laptops are officially broken, but I will get them fixed asap!
So all of my activity online now goes through my phone and iPod touch.
I don't know where I'd be without my iPod.

It is a bit difficult to keep up with everyone and everything, though.
Sometimes I feel like I could live without a computer (mostly because I'm used to laptops breaking down on me) and sometimes I'm so depressed I just want to poke my eyes out.

I guess that's what they call addiction.

Anyways, I'm off to bed now.
Been a very long week with very little sleep.

Goodnight :)

Lip junkie?

I went through my bag yesterday and I found a bunch of lipbalms.
I know I could get away with two or three, but all of these?

I think I have a new addiction for lip products.
Chapped lips and dry hands is major pet peeve of mine, so I have two different kind of handlotions in my bag as well.
But then again, I have everything from lipbalms to usb memorysticks in my purse.

Creepy Crawler

I was trying to take a proper picture of my cat, Anna, but that is nearly impossible.
I managed to get a rather disturbing one, though.

Creeping up on me behind my purse.

For some reason, she always looks like she's posessed by a demon or something when I take flashphotos of her.
How can something so gorgeous look so scary?
I have no idea...


It's saturday and I'm going to mum's place for dinner soon.
Don't know what she's cooking, but I'm damn sure it's going to be good.

Have a wonderful weekend :)

I got married!!!

To this album
I've been a HUGE fan of this man since 2004 and I have bought all of his albums.
Didn't really have any expectations when I ordered this one, but I've been listening to it twice a day for two weeks.
It is absolutely gorgeous.
There is just something about his music, and not to mention voice, that gives me chills.
The good kind, though :)

Here's a few of my favorite songs from the album.

<3 Hjerte hjerte hjerte <3

(Inside joke btw)

Eating contest

I haven't had pizza in around 2 months, so after working overtime today, I just had to get one.
I felt like a chubby kid at McDonald's.
The pizza was gone after 20 minutes.

It has shrimp, mushroom and beef on it and I know it doesn't look like much, but with garlic dressing, its absolutely amazing.

Even though I did swear I wouldn't go back to that pizzaplace, I just could not help myself.
I'm not making a habit out of it (again), because I'm really trying to focus on eating healthier.
Everytime I go groceryshopping, I buy several types of fruits and other healthy snacks.
Right now I'm actually hooked on kiwi.
That usually only lasts a few days because of the ''special'' taste, then I go on to something else.

But anyways, I have some editing to do before I hit the sack, so I'm going to wrap this up.

Have a good night everyone :)

Work makes me bleed!

I'm not someone who usually complains about work, but I was stressed out today and I had to work some overtime.
As I was closing down the cafeteria, I ran into the door and smashed my nose.
Not only did that hurt and numb the middlepart of my face, but I also started bleeding.
''Oh great!'' I thought and had to go back to the bathroom and clean that mess up.
I spent about 10 minutes trying to make it stop and when it finally did, I felt a bit lightheaded.
First thought was that I was going to pass out, but since I've already passed out like a month and a half ago, I refused to go through that again.
Me being insanely stubborn, marched out of the bathroom, closed down the entire building and walked home.
When I got home, though, I noticed that half of the foundation I had on around my nose area was gone.
Not only did it make me look silly, but I had spent so much time doing my makeup this morning that I got so mad, I washed it all off.
I don't know why I did that, but somehow I felt better afterwards.

Have you ever had something like this happen to you at work?

Musical month

I wouldn't say I've been ''crazy busy'' this month, like I always say I am, but I've had loads of stuff on my mind lately.
What do I do when I have loads to think about?
I drown my thoughts in awesome music, of course.

What I listen to depends on my mood and what I need to listen to.
I have specific albums for specific moods, which I know sounds a bit strange, but I'll give you a few examples:

When I feel a little depressed and down, I always pull out my I'm Not Dead album from Pink.
It has gotten me through some pretty dark days and it still is a lifesaver when things get rough.
When I'm feeling angry/frustrated, Rage Against The Machine's debut album from 1992 (which is FANTASTIC), are one of my favorites to listen to.
I do sometimes also throw in some random tracks by Godsmack, Marilyn Manson, Rammstein and Atreyu.
It's a nice way to get out some aggression.
Even better if I'm playing Mortal Kombat or Tekken at the same time as the music is playing.

If I were to describe the mood I've been in lately, I wouldnt even know where to begin.
I've been loving a very unlikely album.
I've never been a fan of hers, but this is a brilliant album.
I can't remember why I bought it, but I don't regret it at all.

Are you like me when it comes to music, and what albums do you listen to when you're in certain moods?
Feel free to share in a comment :)

Letters to Juliet

A friend at work let me borrow a bunch of dvd's and one of them was Letter to Juliet with Amanda Seyfried.
She is so adorable and I've been a fan of hers for a few years, so I try to keep up with her movies.
The movie in an eggshell:
Sophie goes on a vacation with her fiance to Verona, Italy.
She then finds a love letter, which was written 50 years ago, and she decides to reply.
Little does she know that she'll end up looking for someone's long lost love, and maybe even find her own.

Such a cute story, told in a very unexpected way.

It makes me want to believe that true love really do excist.
That there is someone for everyone.
I've never been the hopeless romantic, but I've always loved the idea of ''the one''.
So we'll see what happens in 2012.
If I end up finally giving my ''I do'' to my long distance fiance.
Only time will tell :)

(Hope he doesn't get pissed off because of this post)
I love you <3

Hello 2012!

So apparently, it's been almost a month since my last post.
My excuse is mainly me being busy and a tiny bit of me being lazy.

I uploaded a vlog on my youtube channel about a week ago about my goals and stuff for this year.
Here's the link

For me, 2011 was a messy year, so I hope 2012 will have some form of clarity and change.
Even though I had a pretty insane start to this year, I could feel that something would be different.
That something good would finally come along and get me out of this craphole I'm in.

I'm keeping my fingers crossed and hoping that this year will be the year of change.
