So, I've seen people making these posts already and thought I should probably make one too before it's too late. :P

Sooo, who wants a Christmas card?? They have really cute, glittery ones this year, so be warned! Or I might be persuaded to send the Christmas Berlin ones, they're really nice, too. :) If you want one, just pm me your address or comment here if I already have your address or a mix of both~!

I really like sending cards so don't worry about it being inconvenient! :)

Well, well, I meant to write and entry for ages now, but let's be honest, my life was pretty boring the last two months...

Anyway, now I'm done with my internship, and I'm really not as happy about its end as I thought I would be. Don't get me wrong, I really didn't like it there. xD Just... I don't know, maybe I haven't realised it yet that I'm ~free~ now, haha. And I will miss the money. I should really try to find some student job... but first I'll get a dog! And then see how well it copes with being alone? Well, we'll see.

I'm really excited about my future dog already! I've missed having a pet loads. I'm a bit worried because I never had a dog though. But first time for everything, right? And it's not like I'm an irresponsible idiot. xD Even my mother who started out hating the idea has come round to it somewhat. :)

Okay, what else... Oh, right, anyone want a postcard? ;) Next weekend I'll be going to London to visit two friends for a few days, really looking forward to it! So if you like getting postcards as much as I do, feel free to pm me your address. :)

That's it for now~. I swear I'll try updating more often, haha.

Yeah, long time no see.

I wanted to make tons of entries, but of course my laziness got the better of me.


I was at home over Christmas and New Years and it was really nice. I watched a lot of documentaries and met all my favourite friends from home and it was generally just relaxing and fun. I hope you also had a nice time!

Now I'm back in Norway, and that's nice too. It really already does feel like home. Uni hasn't started just yet, but my first courses are next week. I only have 7 hours/week (my courses are: travelling literature, Ibsen & Fosse, and Sami) but that's quite alright because I've also started working. Or at least I think I have. They're a bit fuzzy on finally giving me the damn job and giving me money. :P
I work at the uni canteen and even though that's not very glamorous, I like it so far. I work at a smaller canteen in the fishery sciences building and the lady working there and training me is really nice and fun and has an impressive mustache. Tomorrow I'm supposed to talk to the boss and get all signed up and told what kind of tax card to get etc etc.
The pay is alright too from what I've heard (~125NOK/hr = ~16€). I mean, it's not that good for Norway really, but I was too lazy to look for a better job.

And when I got back nice post awaited me! So thank you [livejournal.com profile] robtengel and [livejournal.com profile] alicetwilight for your Christmas cards! :)
I don't know if somebody else sent me something, but if that's the case I just hope that the Norwegian post is being slow and not that my flatmates lost it...

I hope the next update will be a bit sooner. ;)

Soooo, I've wanted to write an entry for a while now, but couldn't be bothered. My laziness really knows no bounds, sorry!

I've had a really good time since uni finished and I don't really want to go home for Christmas. Well, I kind of do, but I'll be sad to leave Norway even though it's only for three weeks.

Right now I'm pretty sick. :( I went to the pharmacy and bought cough medicine and it is vile, ugh. I have to take it 4-5 times a day, but I don't know if I'll manange. But maybe I should since my sore throat kills me, I kept waking up from the pain all night last night. Anway, enough whining, I'm still having a nice time.

Yesterday we went dogsledding, and it was a lot of fun! We got to play with the (half year old) puppies and pet all the dogs they had, and the dogs (as well as the people ;)) were amazingly nice. I'm very glad I did it. I was yet too lazy to upload the photos from my camera, so I'll just show you one one of my friends took. ;)

Here it is. )

The "mørketid" has been taking its toll and my sleeping pattern is all messed up. I won't lie and say I don't miss the sun, I am quite glad that I'll see a bit of it over Christmas.

I'll try to write another entry with some more pictures tomorrow, today I'm too busy feeling miserable.

Aaaaand, thank you so much, [livejournal.com profile] gothikmaus and [livejournal.com profile] polarforscherin!! Your Christmas cards arrived, and they are so pretty! :) I am very happy.
Your drawing is very pretty, Alex! I stuck the card to my wardrobe. <3
And the short fanfic you wrote me, Maike, is amazing! :D I didn'z expect one at all, so that was a very happy surprise!
Tuuuuusen takk to you both!! :D
urania: (sing!)
Okay, so I'll try to update my LJ now, and hope there isn't another DdoS attack! I've been meaning to do that for quite a while now, but LJ has been down every time. :/

And I've been neglecting my flist dreadfully and am very sorry. I had quite a bit to do the last week(s) and just handed in my home exam yesterday. So now I have aaaall the time in the world to procrastinate and catch up with everyone. :)

Sooo, I still love it here in Tromsø. And it's not as if nothing has happened, but there hasn't been a lot happening either, so I thought I could post some pictures until I can think of something interesting to write.

Now we have already entered the polar night, and it is dark a lot, but I took a walk to the shops on the 18th, one of the last days where you could see the sun above the mountain, and because I was very lucky, there was a beautiful sunset (at midday!) and lots of pretty snow. Fortunately, I took my camera with me.

And here are the photos. )

Oh, and I'm about to get the Christmas cards, so if you want one, drop me your address here, and I still need to know whether I got your address right, [livejournal.com profile] ai_chi!

<3 you all!

ETA: And I almost forgot AGAIN that I forgot the birthdays of the lovely [livejournal.com profile] angrylogic and [livejournal.com profile] ai_chi this month, so I'm very sorry, and I hope you had a nice birthday! ♥
And if I forgot more birthdays, I'm sorry! I'm just really horrible at remembering them.
urania: (zauberpony!)
So, maybe it is a bit early to think about Christmas, but one of my flatmates has been singing Christmas chorals (yes, chorals, not carols, it's hilarious) all day and I already have seen a few Christmas card posts on my flist, so here goes:

Would you like a Christmas card? :)

I really like sending them, so you could receive one from me, haha. :)

Just reply to this post or PM me and tell me your address if I don't have it already.

I don't think I'll have time to write or draw anything, but maybe I will try. If you have any wishes for a card motive or whatever (reindeer? northern light?), just tell me!

Phew, actually I really have to continue working on my field work research report... thingy, but I really don't want to. :/ Well, I'll continue in 5 minutes. Yes. Totally.

Aaaanyway, like maybe some of you know, I'm going on a short holiday to Norway in a few days. Finally a chance to test my crazy Norwegian language skills. :P I bet they'll just answer me in English... "Jeg snakker ikke engelsk" will be my words of choice then. :P

Sooo, I wanted to ask if anyone would like a postcard? :) I really like postcards, they're so nifty! And I like writing them, too, so it's a win all around. ;)
If you want one, just drop me a note here! When you're address hasn't changed and you've already given it to me, I might be able to find it again... ;) otherwise just give me your address! :)

Comments are screened! :)

Wheee~ Norway!

Oh, and another question if anybody knows:
I have applied with Erasmus and got a place, yadda yadda, but now the university just doesn't... contact me. :( Is that normal? How long can it take? When is it not considered pushy to write a mail to ask?

urania: (awesome)
The answer is: a very late Christmas card!

The Deutsche Post or whoever finally decided being nice and giving it to me! :D

Thank you so much, [livejournal.com profile] shineofastar!! :D It totally made my day and it's such a cute and nice card, too! ♥ *hug* I had me smiling with its general awesomely niceness! :) You are so kind and cute! Eeeek, have another hug! *hug*
