Strange dreams and Law of Attraction

No tribute to a friend today I'm afraid, but I think a regular update is in order.

A few things have happened lately, some of them shouldn't see daylight, so I won't talk about that. But my final exam has started. It started this Monday, and we're making a full site for a fictional place called Bergtun Fjellstue. It will be full of database stuff, aspx-code, flash, jquery and all that good stuff, or bad stuff. Flash is bad, jquery is semi-bad. The rest is damn good! Love database and aspx coding! I think I'm a bit ahead of schedule too, just like last year. But this time it happened earlier, so I don't know if that's a good thing or a bad thing. But let's hope for the best!

Had some strange dreams lately... You can read about it in my dream blog. It was all very crazy. It's one of those dreams that makes you consider getting yourself locked up in a mental institution...

Ann-Marie talked me into going to "Allsang på Grensen" on June 24th. That will be... interesting. No, I'm sure it will be fun, as long as Marion, Ragnhild, Heidi and Ann-Marie are there. Let's just hope it doesn't rain, it's not allowed with umbrellas there... But I'll still bring my ugly umbrella from school. A pale-ish orange with the Sonans logo on it. I won't use it, but it's so ugly I have to bring it :P

OH, I just remembered something! I've been doing a bit Law of Attraction lately. (Definition from Wikipedia: Law of Attraction says people's thoughts (both conscious and unconscious) dictate the reality of their lives, whether or not they're aware of it. Essentially "if you really want something and truly believe it's possible, you'll get it", but putting a lot of attention and thought onto something you don't want means you'll probably get that too.)

It works.

It really does.

You all know that right now, there is one thing I really really really really want, but can't get, at the moment. I turned my thoughts around to "I want ...", "I need ...", "I have to ..." instead of a pathetic powerless "I hope ...". And what do you know! 3 times in a week I see the very thing I want the most! First time was the one I mentioned in another blog post, where I was so incredibly happy. I am looking and searching every day, especially when I'm out driving, because right now that's the easiest way. I have seen many similar things, but never what I want. Then suddenly, a very short time after I turned my thoughts around, it happens 3 times in one week! First time that Wednesday when I blogged about it, second the Monday after, and then Wednesday again. Hasn't happened anything since that Wednesday a week and a half ago, but my exam has taken up most of my thoughts. I just really can't focus enough on getting what I want. Plus, a few days ago I lost a bit of confidence in my task. I fell back into that "I hope ..." state, a depressed melancholic state of mind. It's not ideal for Law of Attraction, but I guess that's just who I am. It's personality type 4, which is a big part of me, according to the Enneagram of Personality test I took at Bjerkely. The most accurate test I've ever come across. Scarily accurate. If I remember correctly I'm mostly 8, almost as much 4, with a healthy dash of 3 and 5.

Anyway, I think this is all I have to say for now. Have a great weekend everyone! And to my lovely friend Heidi: HAPPY BIRTHDAY TOMORROW!!! I'm sorry I couldn't be with you to celebrate today, but life just got in the way... Hope you have a fantastic evening and a fantastic day tomorrow! I love you!

New musicvideo from Kamelot

This song gave me goosebumps and tears in my eyes the first time I heard it. And now they've made a musicvideo of it!

So little, so happy!

Amazing how little it takes to make my day!

2 seconds of my life, heart in overdrive, breath coming short and a smile that reached from ear to ear.

I've been needing this for such a long time, it was a damn relief today. And it was a very efficient wake-upper. I wouldn't mind having this experience every morning! (And for all of you with your mind in the gutter: It's not like that! (Kind of))

I don't think my friends could even make me this happy. No offense, I love you all too much, you're fantastic and whenever we hang out it recharges me and makes me take life a little bit easier. But nothing can compare to today!

Cartoon for the nerd in us all

Just have to post a picture of this cartoon that hangs on our classroom door. One of our teachers put it up there. The first time I read it I laughed so hard! The nerd in me rejoices!

You might want to click it to get the full size and be able to read.

Fredrikstad, Verdens Tavler and life

It's been a while since last post. So here is what's been going on:

April 30th, Marion, Ragnhild and I went down to Fredrikstad to visit Ann-Marie. It was an interesting drive down, it was a long weekend because of May 1st. It was incredibly hot in the car and the traffic was unbelievable! I was supposed to pick up Ragnhild in Lillestrøm and then get Marion at her work on Rasta. By the time I reached Arena, it was full stop. From Arena to the trainstation it takes 3 minutes, this took 10-15, if I remember correctly. It was okay traffic from Lillestrøm to Rasta, but after we got out on the highway again, it was chaos a long long long way. On a normal day, driving from Lillestrøm to Fredrikstad takes 1 1/2 hours, this took 2 1/2 hours!! Luckily Ann-Marie had tacos and cold beverage ready for us when we arrived. (Except for corn for the taco, we had to stop at Østfoldhallen to buy it, and we kinda got lost inside the center...)

Some pictures:

^ Ragnhild seems a bit unsure about her Rome cards... :)

^ Ann-Marie and Marion

^ Ann-Marie: The Grillmaster!

^ Marion and Ragnhild playing badminton with stupid rackets.

It was a great weekend, except for my stupid back. During the first night I slept on a 2 centimetres thick mattress. I slept very good that night, but throughtout the day on Friday, my back became more and more stupid. When I tried to get out of the car when we arrived in Sweden, I could hardly get out. Then I could hardly walk, and I looked pretty much like a pregnant 90 year old.

So we were in Sweden on Friday, and spent too much money. Then we had some fun playing badminton in Ann-Marie's back yard. The rackets were horrible, the ball-thingy got stuck in the racket's net. It was good for my back though, playing. On Saturday we went shopping on different malls around in Fredrikstad. And that evening we went to see Wolverine:

^ I wanna marry him.... Sigh....

^ Look at that...

See the trailer here at YouTube, but I swear, the trailer doesn't do the movie justice.
On Sunday we watched the tree other movies in the X-men series, played more badminton and then went home.


This Friday, it was time for Verdens Tavler. Tine's photoclass opened their exhibition called Verdens Tavler. It's in Østbanehallen near Ica if anyone wants to go see it. It was really nice, interesting to see how life is for school children in the 6 countries they've been in. After the exhibition we went to Aker Brygge to eat, with Tine's family and some friends.


We have a stupid project at school now, video project. It's just to make a video of whatever we want, 3-5 minutes long. It's so stupid, I'm not even gonna start. But it's just this upcoming week left on the project. Then after that it's a week where we can do mostly what we want, and then the great big exam. 4 weeks of hell. Lots more to do this year, with database and all that extra stuff. But I guess it'll be allright. I'm not hoping for an A like I got on the last exam, but I know I won't fail at least! :P


Hmm, I have a lot more to say, but I think I'll save that for another post. Tomorrow maybe, or later tonight.
