"Sleep is a sign of caffeine deprivation"

If you're lucky

Morning. It's Friday and thank the god I don't believe in for that. It's ridiculously earn. As usual. But I'm good though. Tired but good. In all honesty I actually don't have time to blog though, if I am to be completely hones , because I'm leaving I'm like ten minutes and I still have to brush my teeth and pack my lunch and bandage my chafed feet...but you know. I'm prioritizing. 

Really just wanted to pop in and say hi though. Which I have done now. So I suppose that means that we are done. I'm gonna stop now. Have a nice one folks!

Update: Almost missed the train because the station where I usually get on was closed. Had to start the morning running. No fun. End of update.

“Give me the lover who yanks open the door
of his house and presses me to the wall
in the dim hallway, and keeps me there until I’m drenched
and shaking, whose kisses arrive by the boatload
and begin their delicious diaspora
through the cities and small towns of my body.

To hell with the saints, with the martyrs
of my childhood meant to instruct me
in the power of endurance and faith,
to hell with the next world and its pallid angels
swooning and sighing like Victorian girls.

I want this world. I want to walk into
the ocean and feel it trying to drag me along
like I’m nothing but a broken bit of scratched glass,
and I want to resist it.”

So I said I was gonna run. And once I said that I was gonna do a 10k (one Swedish/Scandinavia mile), that that was a goal of mine. So today when I stepped on the treadmill I decided that it was time. That today was the day I was gonna do it. I have never actually run that far before, I think maybe 8k was the longest and that was when I was like sixteen, so I don't quite know what got into me. But they say that it all starts with a desicion. And so I decided.

And I did it. I ran 10k. Slowly but surely and when I was done I wasn't even that insanely tired. I mean I wasn't about to do any more working out, but still it wasn't nearly as hard has I had imagined. Mostly I got a bit bored. And ended up with terribly chafed feet due to the fact that I forgot socks (yeah...I know). But I did it. And I must say that I am quite proud. Or very proud. 

Yup. And that was that. End of bragging session.

Afternoon folks. I'm tired. And so warm (36 degrees today apparently). And...well stuff. It's been one if those days. I suppose they have to come along every now and then, to remind you your perfect bubble is not so perfect after all. Or something along those lines. And that is all I am going to say about the subject (no I'm not phrasing it like this so you'll ask, because I have no answers that I'm willing to give you). I will be five, I always am. One way or the other.

Moving on. With has been fine, we got icecream which was rather fun. What else...well not much really. I'm going to the gym now and the plan is to run my shit away (I used to when I was unemployed, it was a good coping strategy). If my knees will allow it (yup, bad knees at 25, it's awesome). And now I am really done. Talk to you later folks.

The good life

Afternoon folks. I'm still alive, even though the heat is doing what it can to change that (this is just plain ridiculous, where is the Scandinavian chill that I have come to depend on?). Me and Sofie (photo) just came home from a power walk and now we are....wait for guessed it....hanging out in the kitchen. Joel is here as well, he came home from his vacation yesterday (awesome), that's it. Natalie is in Oslo too, but she's not at home.

Yeah...anyways. I have. I idea what else I was going to say actually. It's been. Rather good day at work, and a nice afternoon so far, and that is about all that I have to say right now. No matter that there are so much more I wish for, some stuff that I miss and so on and so on, my life is still pretty damn amazing. And now I'm done.

If you never hear from me again it's because I've died of heatstroke

Published 2014-07-21 19:26:48 in Randoms,

Yup. You're seeing this righ. The highest temperature today was 37 degrees. Right now it's 35. Please someone kill me now. We're not even gonna talk about the temperature inside, because it's the same. Without even a chance of wind. Not that there is any outside either, but at least it could be. 

Yeah...I officially don't care that you're not suppose to complain about the heat, because this is just a little much. I live I'm frickin Norway, isn't it suppose to be cold here? Or at least not as warm as like Greece or like France? I thought so. Apparently I was wrong. So...that was that. I'm gonna make dinner now, and hope that I don't die in the process. Talk to you tomorrow, if I haven't gone mad.

20/7-2014. Oslo. Norway. Scandinavia. Europe. The world.

Morning morons. It's Monday. And twenty past six in the morning, which really is an ungodly hour to have to be up, but it's still a good day though. Wanna know why? Well I'm gonna tell you whether you like it or not (as you do, you should have learned that by now). It's because...

A) People are coming back from their vacations this week. Not everyone, but some, and that is cause to be happy. I'm not made to be alone anymore.. (In the future can we all just decide that you go on vacation when I do? That would make things a whole lot easier.)

B) I'm wearing a new sweater. Yes. That is a factor. It's the small stuff in life, and feeling cute is rather important. To me at least.

C) The sun is shining. Which I will probably not be so happy about later when I come home and it's a billion degrees in the apartment (and I can no longer walk around half makes due to the previously mentioned return of people), but waking up seeing the sun is a whole lot more fun than darkness and/or rain.  

Yeah and that's pretty much it. Now I really have go go brush my teeth or I will miss my train and hence the reson for getting up this ridiculously early.. So talk to you later. Peace!

This is not a drive by

Yo. What's up folks? Are you doing Sunday stuff like cleaning and making good for the week and...oh I don't know, homework? I am not, and I'm quite frankly very happy about that. Did the cleaning yesterday and as we all know the time for homework is long gone. Thankfully. Instead of all that I am walking home from the gym, trying not to melt because it's soooo warm here (yeah I know that it's basically illegal to complain about the heat in Scandinavia but I will anyways). Over all that's a whole lot more pleasant.

What else? Well me and Natalie and Marie (you don't know her) went suntanning in Slottsparken fir a little while, which was nice, but that's about it. Now I'm gonna have lunch idea. This being home alone is really getting old, luckily some people are coming back this week. You're all missed. Eh...and with that I think we're done. Talk to you later.

I would rather learn what it feels like to burn than feel nothing at all

Evening fools. I'm home alone again. It's odd. For two days it's just going to be me and Natalie living here (stupid vacation times)l it's lucky she's at least not going anywhere for the time being), since Fanny sort of moved out this morning. For a household consisting of ten people that is just very strange indeed (never thought I'd live it so much by the way, living with nine other people, but now I really wouldn't trande it for anything...almost).

Anyways. What have I done today? Well I walked into town to look at the sale and found some new gym clothes and three tops (50% off and take 2 get one for free, awesomely cheap deal). Feels so very very awesome to be able to shop just a little without it meaning that I can't eat for the rest of the week (now it's enough with the shopping for this paycheck though, because one shouldn't overdo it either, but still). Thank you DHL for finally getting me on track.

What more..? Well I have cleaned the apartment, since it's my week to do that, and I must say that mum would be proud. It looks awesome here. Yup. And that's about what I have done. Oh and right now I am doing some laundry and will make dinner as soon as I am finished with this post. Which I am now. Over and out.

Yeah so I made the executive desicion that we don't need the "your mother doesn't live here so do your own damn dishes" sign that our landlord put there and changed it for a faux flower. Hope no one minds..



nilsen is about me, Sofia. I was born 1989 in Trollhättan, Sweden. Studying at university taught me how to be a behavioural scientist but working at Disney changed my life. Currently residing in Oslo, Norway, with some of the best people I've ever met. This is my journey. I might not be quite right in the head but then again no one is and it is like they say, "it takes a fool to remain sane."
