May. 17th! Happy Birthday Norway! :D

19 May

Two days ago was Norway’s 199th constitution day, where we celebrate our independence as a country. It was May 17th in 1814 that we finally got our own constitution and we were no longer ruled by Sweden or Denmark. I was working that day of course, however I got off fairly early (quarter past five) so I had time to eat ice cream 😀 It is sort of an unwritten rule that the children can eat as much ice-cream as they want between sunrise and sunset on this day. So as I was celebrating in an amusement-park, there were lots of other Norwegians there, that were visiting that day, some of them were very drunk -__-” May 17th is not for getting hammered! It is for family and friends and ice-cream and fun! You can have a beer or a glass of champagne. but leave it at that please 😀 Anywhoooo… Here is a picture from the celebration room that work set up for us :

photo (22)Today one of my friends form last years Design&Fashion class sent me a link on facebook. It was for the blog of Esra Røise a REALLY good freelance illustrator. I love her style, however I saw her kind of style somewhere else first, some illustrations by Caroline Andrieu. They look kind of alike, but I might like Andrieu a little better, purely because I found her first ^-^ Anyway. I’ve wanted to try out this style for a while now, so here is my attempt at a Andrieu/Røise picture C: Hope you like ❤

Going to…NYC!

8 May
Okay! SO May 23rd is my 21st birthday, and as a present to myself I get to go to New York with my BFF for four days! It will (hopefully) be as awesome as I think it will be, and I just wanted to tell someone what I want to do, and so I chose you guys! Maybe you also have suggestions, if so, please comment (just keep in mind that I only have four days and I’m going to be a proper tourist) I just hope everything works out NYC is HUGE and I just hope I get to see everything I want to…and hope I don’t get lost…

Here is a list of what I would like to do:

Starlit Splash and Pirates :D

3 May

Yesterday I went to Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon for the cast members’ Starlit Splash Party! I was a little skeptic at first, as I don’t really like big crowds, especially crowds of strangers, but I had a blast! ❤ We had the park all to ourselves from 7pm-12pm and there was free food, drink, ice-cream, popcorn and crisps + a surprisingly good DJ and to say that the mood was good would be a major understatement. The highlight of the evening for me was without a doubt when the pirates invaded the beach. I LOVE PIRATES! Pirates VS Ninjas…sorry ninjas you don’t stand a chance against the awesomeness of pirates ;P Anywhooo I’m really glad I went as this was by far the most fun I’ve had since I got here, which was 6 months two days ago. They were also giving out free stuff, so I got an eye-patch and a pirate bandana so all is great ❤  Here’s a picture of one of the Pirates:

St. Patrick’s Day & The: “soon-to-be-empty-apartment” D:

18 Mar

Hey, everyone!

Today was St. Patrick’s Day, and also my best mate Daniel’s birthday! woo hoo! Quite a lot of people int eh park today because of this…not Daniel’s Birthday, but St. Patrick’s Day ;P I was working so I was not allowed to celebrate it much, but I did draw a Shamrock on my face this morning… before I washed it away again because it is not allowed at work :/ Also special Happy St. Patty’s Day to my two Irish friends, M&K! Whoop! Still wondering why so many St. P-shirts have a FOUR-leaf-clover when the Shamrock has three? St. Patrick is said to have used the three leaf clover to explain the Holy Trinity to the people of Ireland and England, in case you didn’t already know that 😀

Now the thing I’ve been dreading all year has happened…My roomies have moved out D: My room mate C. left me two days ago, the three Germans left one and two days before that, and my two British flat-mates are leaving in two weeks. What I thought was going to happen was that the two Brits and the other Norwegian girl and I would live together(alone) in this 8 people flat for two weeks, and then they would move A. and I somewhere when the Brits left(this is what usually happens). That is NOT what happened… This is what is going on: I am left alone in my room, one of the British girls is left alone in her room and the other British and Norwegian girl are still living together in their room. We are getting four new girls…all from Thailand, I’ve been told, and I do not know what to think…They might be lovely, but there might also be a major culture clash here and, yes, I am one who worries a lot about things before they happen. I never wanted to live with 7 others, but the 7 I’ve been living with so far have been absolutely delightful, therefore I never thought of moving. This however is NOT going to be the same what so ever, and now both A and I want to move, but I’m not sure if we are allowed to do so :C

On a happier note my parents and younger sister are coming to visit me in eight days! 😀 Iiiiiii! I am SOOO excited<3 ❤ ❤

I’ve even gotten some time off from work so I’m thrilled!

The only family member (that lives in my house) that is not coming over :C

Also, today I went to my buddy J’s place and we watched Dr. Who together, it was very nice 😀 I feel like I’m doing some good in this world by converting people I know to Who-ism, feel free to join us 😀 (The 9th-11th doctor in my heart forever!) (Tennant&Smith;if I could have you both I would!) ❤

Drinking poetic tea right now, the tag on the teabag says: “Your Heartbeat Is the Rhythm of Your Soul” :B I like it ❤

It is far too late for me to be awake now, getting up in 6 hours or so, getting new roommate tomorrow D:

wish me luck? no? C’mon its St. Patrick’s day… well…it was an hour and a half ago anyway. NO luck of the Irish for me then?

Oh well, G’nite!
