Wishing you a very Merry Christmas!

I’ve had an absolutely wonderful Christmas! It began somewhat slow and boring when I started at work at 9am and worked until 1pm.. After that however, I visited my boyfriend and his family to wish them a Merry Christmas, I drove home in a frozen winter wonderland while singing “Driving home for Christmas” to myself, and was greeted at home with a fan-freakin’-tastic Christmas dinner made by my very own mom ♥

We stuffed ourselves so good that we practically rolled away from the table and over to enjoy a relaxing evening on the couch to open some gifts and enjoy each others company…

One of the most exciting parts about this Christmas was that I hadn’t wished for anything in particular, nor did I shake, squeeze or feel any of the gifts under our tree. I was not at all disappointed though, it was clear that my friends and family know me and thought of me.. that’s why I love them…

I got table cloths, tealights and a cakeknife (so yes, when I’ve moved out this fall you’re all invited to my place for cake)… How might I be making this cake you ask? With this little baby…

Now don’t worry, I’ll be taking a shower before you all come.. and I’ll dry myself off with my own towels…

And just because my hair is a mile long and would take forever to dry itself…

I’ll make you a cup of tea to go with that slice of cake, and then you can enjoy that while relaxing with my beautiful, soft, new purple blanket…

We’ll light my candle…

…and have a real nice little visit! Yeah, like I told my parents.. after this Christmas I’m pretty much ready to move out! I also got some shopping cash for IKEA, so I know what I’m doing the next time I’m down in Oslo!

One of my favourite gifts was from my darling sweetheart, Paul ♥ I love him

‘Twas the night before Christmas…

 

'Twas the night before Christmas and all round my hips
Were mom’s homemade goodies that sneaked past my lips...

Yes, my mom has made delicious goodies while I was gone at work today. Only 4 more hours of work tomorrow, from 9am til 1pm and then it’s CHRISTMAS for me as well!!

UNIVERSITY CAMPUS

On Wednesday the entire 3rd grade (we call it third, it’s actually 13th) went to Oslo on a class trip. First we were going to visit the University in Oslo, which is the oldest and the biggest in the country – and where I’m going next fall.

I enjoyed it so much, I honestly wanted to just start school there right now. It was HUGE, it had tons of studies and tons of students. I believe there is almost 40 000 students that go there. It was awesome.

Later that evening we went to one of the theatres in Oslo and saw a show called The Mystery of Myrna Vep. It got top reviews from multiple big newspapers in Norway, and I loved it! It was so hilarious and the show only consisted of TWO actors who played at LEAST 6 roles in total. They were very talented and extremely good at improv.

I’ve realized that I sincerely love the theatre. I’ve only ever seen this show and Les Miserables, but I adored both and felt both giddy and excited after each of them.

Do you like the theatre?

What is your favourite show?

I THINK I’VE DECIDED

It’s hard to be 18. It’s the last time you’ll be asked: “What do you want to be when you grow up?”, and this time a serious answer is expected. Who knows what they want to be now? Most of us have only experienced life with mom and dad, with siblings and a family home. We don’t know who we are on our own. We don’t know who we will be in the city. Who we’ll be somewhere else. We don’t know who we will be in 10 years, so a question like that now is impossible to answer for sure.

Some of you have already read about my confusion as to what I’m going to study next after high school. Well, for the reason above I’ve decided I’m not going to take the safest education, the one with a guaranteed job at the end and millions rolling into my bank account. What’s the point if I don’t enjoy it? So I’ve been looking for studies that contain things that might interest me, things I could be excited about learning and that I will enjoy.

The one study I keep coming back to in interest is one called Culture and Communication at the University in Oslo. This course appearantly teaches you about things related to information, communication, journalism, commercialism and marketing. These are the areas people who have studied this are working in now as well. I think I could find this super exciting and fun, as well as handy!

You can read a lovely google translated version of the study here: http://tinyurl.com/bsx5qaw

By the way, I updated the design on my blog! What do you think?
