    What’s a job? [reblogged]

    I first posted this as a guest post at HuesofMaple / WordAllure one year ago and I think this deserves a renewed attention now that I’m once again a stay at home mom. In a modern country like Norway, people often expect the men and women to have equal (not balance) responsibility. Whenever I tell that I’m…

    We need to laugh

    There’s a Norwegian poem that goes: (translation below) Bruk papirets begge sider,i disse harde trange tider.Og tenk på din kjære venn,og heng papiret på igjen, Use the papers on both sidesin this hard difficult times.Think of your dear friendAnd hang the paper again. Um… Ew?! 🤢 That’s was my first reaction, but let’s admit whoever made this…

    They thought I got Corona virus!

    Wednesday morning. Very early, 5am, I prepared to go out with my family. We will board a ferry to cross a Norwegian fjord and take a bus to our destination. On the ferry, I visit the restroom carrying a book I’ve borrowed from the library. It’s one of the time I used to catch up with reading.…

    Angel With A Shotgun

    They say before you start a war, you better know what you’re fighting for. I never played Final Fantasy, but gosh, I’m addicted to the beauty of the artwork. Angel with a Shotgun by The Cab with this animation is a perfect combi. Very touching lyrics below. (I’m an angel with a shotgun, shotgun, shotgunAn angel with…

    Wish me luck!

    Monday… ugh 😔… yeah, yours truly isn’t very motivating today. In fact, no Monday music yesterday because I’m too blue. Life sucks. I have made no progress with the book I’m working with and I hate it more than anything, added with the fact that I barely have time to spend with family. Tsk! I haven’t blog…

    Blogging is dead

    The words “blogging is dead” hit me after reading Accidental Blogger‘s post about missing his old blogging friends. It’s a word I’ve read in an article years ago. As I commented, I can sympathize with him. It’s feels lonely when those who were with you when you started just stopped and you feel like the only person…

    A “very” short post

    I’ve recently been suck into the vortex of social media *cough* Instagram and lost my sight of blogging. The thought of blogging feels heavy and tedious, but all it takes is reading few comments and fun post and I’m back! I’ll still roam YouTube and Instagram though 😉

    I’ll be out in a while

    As much as I love blogging, life happens. I’ll still be reading blog but I have tons of stuff I must do this January, scheduling post is not an option for me because I enjoy personal interaction. I will go back to regular blogging in February, so I’ll be out in a while.

    New year fever

    How was your new year? Did you watch the sunrise before going to bed? I did, and it was tormenting. The light penetrated my brain so painfully because I drank too much champagne. Not to mention, I feel sickly because all the fatty christmas food seemed to have lowered my otherwise strong immune system. Which is why…

    New Year goal. Sleep!

    Yep, you read it right. Thanks to Erin from KittyJade I now know what I need the most. Because I’m going down an insane road if I keep cutting my sleep hours to work. Last night (or this morning actually) I went from searching something for my books, to reading stories online, to browsing Instagram quotes, posting…
