Today I went to a full day seminar where we killed each others babies. That means we all took our time going through each others project papers and telling each other all the mistakes. I thought it got a bit mean, but on the other hand, I got a lot to work with. I guess my problem is that I, somewhere deep inside, just wanted the people to say: "It's great. There's absolutely nothing else you need to do. Hand it in right now. It's perfect." And when what they said was more along the lines of: "I don't get what you mean here. It's too big. This sentence is wrong. I think your thesis is wrong," it was kinda difficult. Good for my end result, bad for my self esteem. But the people were nice, and it was really helpful.

Afterwards, me, Eivind and Silje went to a debate about the male gender and it's place in today's society. It was really interesting, and very provocative, and I actually dared voice my opinion and ask a question in front of everyone. It was nice. Also, I joined Kultur Utvalget (the cultural group? a student group that organizes debates and stuff). I think it will be nice.

Good day.

I overslept again...good side: I sleep really well these days and wake up rested and have awesome dreams. Downside: I don't feel like going to school when I won't be there before 12. Oh well, I can study from home today. Tomorrow I actually have a meeting at 9. Will probably manage to get me up...

In other news, I've just started a new rpg campaign with [livejournal.com profile] sortkatt, [livejournal.com profile] aj_stalin and Eivind. It's cyberpunk, and it's not hack'n slash. I'm so pleased! Already in love with my character (a 15 year old hispanic girl who sells drugs and live on the streets). This is going to be awesome.

You are a rare phenomenon. You are the expensive show with a healthy cult appeal that still somehow managed to be a ratings smash. You are living proof that sometimes, all the planets can align in the right order. Although FOX would prefer something cheaper to produce, they're more than willing to make the investment for the returns you offer and the inevitable impending cash flow from your merchandise. You live a full life of nine seasons and retire confidently, knowing that you have secured a high place in the history of television.

Which Supernatural character are you?




You're Dean! You're like those M&Ms you love so much -- hard candy shell on the outside, soft chocolate center on the inside. You're a huge flirt, and quite proud of it, even though you'd rather chew off your own arm than talk about your real feelings. You kick ass and you're smart, but without any special powers or a silly college education -- all your kickass is purely your own, baby.

Yeah, that's right! I'm so pleased!

In other news, I'm reading history and doing all my chores...I'm being good even though the motivation is still lacking. A week of this and I'll probably be back to my old game of loving the student life. I hope. 3 articles read so far today.

Oh, and I just re-discovered Deftones. Good times.

If I had spent my entire trip here in California, I don't think I'd even want to leave and go back to Norway. I love it here. I'd just import all the people I love from Norway and stay here forever. Afterall, the first time I decided which college I was going to go to, I chose Stanford (I was about 11, and I wanted to be an astronaut). Alas, I do have to leave, tomorrow to be precise, and I'll just have to live through the heartache of leaving this place with it's awesome people, comfortable climate, beauty and okay liberal politics.

At least I'll be home in time to cheer my father on in the elections (he's running for major in Holmestrand).

I know that a large part of why I fell in love with California is due to a few people. [livejournal.com profile] jhkim, [livejournal.com profile] badgerbag, [livejournal.com profile] a_stoolpidgeon, [livejournal.com profile] abigor60 and [livejournal.com profile] chesire_monkey. I'm going to miss you all so much! You guys are awesome people and if you ever want to come to Norway...scratch that: When you come to Norway (because if you don't I'll just have to come over here and get you), you have to stay with me, at least for a few days. Thank you for making this trip even better!

I'm back in California everyone. For some strange reason it feels sorta like home. I like it here. I'm visiting chesire monkey and abigor, and I'm watching them play guitar hero right now. Nice people. I'm tired of travelling around, and part of me is really looking forward to coming home again.

I have to return your videos before I go home [livejournal.com profile] badgerbag, and it would be nice to see you guys again. And I think I might like to go up in the wine country before I leave this place.

Hi, I'm just logging in to say that I'm alive. New Orleans was hauntingly beautiful and I'm completely in love. But a weird need to be on the road again hit me after a few days and I decided to drive the 550 miles to St Louis in a day. (Yes, I admit it, I went to St Louis to see all the places described in Laurell K. Hamiltons books...I know, I'm still a fan, nomatter how much oogie sex she puts in those books, I still love Anita.)

St Louis was cool, though the places sounded more interesting in hte books than in real life. Just like in New Orleans, I walked around the town without bumping into any vampires, but I heard that N.O. has a rather large population of people who'd love to think that they were vampires. you know, crazies who have been known to kill tourists and drink their blood (serious, I have some great chilling not-quite-ghost-stories to tell you guys when I get home!).

I'm going to go drive through Kansas now. Some will say Dorothy, but I say Winchester brothers! So there!

Bags are packed, sofa is de-bedified, map has been consulted. This means that as soon as [livejournal.com profile] sandchigger is back and tells me how to work that damned washer, I'll be off to New Orleans! Have the address of three hostels, know how to get there, is very excited. All in all I think this will be a success.

These last few days in Fort Worth have been relaxing and fun. Thank you so much for letting me use your living room as a bedroom chigger! You are excellent! And say hi to Cassandra for me! (she's still sleeping)

So, I'm now in Fort Worth texas, living on [livejournal.com profile] sandchigger couch. He has seven cats, and his girlfriend has two dogs, and they're all currently sharing the living room with me. Intense, but fun.

Today I've been to a real American mall, bought a pair of shoes (I know I can't really afford it, but what the heck) and eaten a caramelized apple. Good old-fashioned American things! Tomorrow I will do the tourist thing and check out downtown Fort Worth. It will be awesome!

So, I think it's finally laid out, my new plans for travel. I'm sure you're all wondering why I'm still in Roswell, I mean, it's not like the town has that many alien museums, you can mostly finish of the tourist thing in about a day. But, the motel I'm staying at has a few really nice people staying here. They're long term residents who live in the rooms next to mine, and they mostly spend their days going to the construction site and working and then coming back here to sit on the porch grilling meat and drinking burbon. And I got invited to hang out with them. So that's what I've been doing. Slacking, drinking and eating meat while talking to nice people. You'd be surprised how fast the time flies when you're doing nothing with nice people.

The cast of this little motel:

James - texan, complete with accent and with a hidden love for books.

Justin - the young georgian with the fioncee who's moving down here.

Ron - the 51 year old man from Kansas with a heart condition and a gun collection

Cody - the eminem wannabe with an 8 months pregnant girlfriend he got together with 3 weeks ago.

And me!

After comicon, my big adventure of driving around from place to place without actually knowing anyone finally began. Know what I've found out? I like having people around me...I sorta miss having someone to talk to. But hey, I'm surviving. And having fun.

adventure begins! )

But my question to you is: were do I go from here? My original plan was to visit Sandchigger in texas, but now it seems that he might be too busy with work to actually have time to see me. I think it's poll time!

So, yesterday I first went jogging (in the summer heat of California. Be impressed with me, I am) and then did some yoga (I am like the healthiest tourist ever *very proud*). Then, I bullied [livejournal.com profile] chesire_monkey into agreeing to have dinner with me just so I'd have an excuse to drive up to Sacramento (and to meet her, of course). And it was awesome! I just expected her to take a little bit of time off from work to hang out with me, but she took the entire evening off and we went out to a Mexican restaurant (ernesto's?), then she and her boyfriend/husband/lover??? took me to oldtown Sacramento which was this awesome old western-style part of the city with fortune tellers, candy stores and, for some strange reason, tattoo parlors. The evening ended at their place where I finally got to see the movie Pleasantville. All in all, a mighty fine trip.

This morning, [livejournal.com profile] chesire_monkey and I went out for breakfast and I got to try out the American speciality "pigs in a blanket", which turned out to be sausages wrapped in pancakes with butter and syrup. And it was yummy. And tonight I'm doing even more roleplaying with John and Liz. Too bad I forgot to bring my camera to Sacramento, or else you'd have gotten to see loads of pictures (especially since I got stuck in traffic on the way up there and thus had lots of time to admire the scenery.)

So, I'll be leaving San Francisco tomorrow. I've wandered around it extremely much, taken an impressive amount of picutres of both the city and redwood, and done lots of cool stuff. I've been at Pier 39, at Coit tower, taken the cable cars, been to chinatown and walked through the entire financial district, North beach and the Castro (of course).

And now, I've leased a car from [livejournal.com profile] badgerbag's friend Lee. Which is awesome! So I'm now going to actually be able to drive around in the US! *so pleased* It's a Honda, and pretty, and silver, and it's an automatic (which I will hopefully learn to use) and very comfortable. I will show you pictures. I've already managed to get lost on the highway once in it, but I'll buy myself a map tomorrow before going off on my great driving adventure! This is going to be so great.

So, I got into the US okay. Lost my flight, but got a later one the same day so here I am, in John Kim's living room, just having finished watching justice league with his kid and eating mac 'n cheese. Very American. I'm so pleased!

Kinda tired, haven't had time to realize that I'm actually on the other side of the world from everyone just yet, and a little hyped on caffeine. This is going to be awesome!

Signing off!

Oh, and this icon is called "going in my blog" which this trip definitely is!

Ps. my cell doesn't work in the US, apparently, so I'll let you know when I get an American number you can contact me on. Until then I'll check my comments here and my email at least once or twice a week (probably more often, I am an addict to lj after all)

Roskilde was fun, though muddy. To be quite honest, I'm not much of a festival person, I find the idea of being muddy for a week quite disgusting, and I've never been much of a camper. So spending a week in a wet tent, walking around drunk in muddy boots, with muddy pants, and muddy hands, and muddy jackets sound to me to be a lot like hell. Turns out, it was. But then again, if I get to spend my time in hell with awesome people like [livejournal.com profile] aj_stalin, Hanne, Margrethe and Annett, then I won't be complaining too much down there either.

All in all, the music was fun, the alcohol was fun, the people were great and the logistics, the camping experience and the mud was pure hell. So though I probably won't be going back to Roskilde ever, it was nice to be able to say that I survived the muddiest, wettest, most horrid Roskilde that's been so far. That's right people, between 4 - 5000 people went home, but I stayed even though everything I owned was wet and muddy, my tent got flooded and I got sick.

Bands I saw:

+the Killers (awesome)
+Bjork (also awesome, even though I didn't find any of the people I was supposed to watch it with)
+Mastodon(though I was too wet to enjoy them)
+My Chemical Romance (a little of them at least)
+Machine Head (a little of those too)
+Arctic Monkeys (awesome)
+Beastie Boys (totally awesome, though I lost everyone I knew and was stuck with the beers I bought for them)
+Maher Shalal Haz Bash Some weird japanese guy who played 120 songs in an hour (totally awesome, but probably wouldn't have been if I wasn't drunk from all the beer I had to drink because I lost the people I knew at the start of the Beastie Boys concert)
+BigBang (awesome)
+Clipse (allright)
+Timbuktu & Damn (best concert ever!)

Bags are packed, room is cleaned, and I'm just about to pack down my computer to take it across the ocean to that great unknown land of the US of A (or, first off to Denmark, but hey, that's a trifling detail). That is, if I didn't have to stay in and clean the apartment before Eivind moves in. Grumble. Someone (eyeballing [livejournal.com profile] sortkatt and [livejournal.com profile] 45hasle) decided that yesterday was a great day to try to make ginger candy and not clean it up. The stuff is all over the kitchen! Oh well, I'm satisfying my hung over and very tired self with the fact that when I've cleaned the kitchen now, I won't have to do it again for at least another 2 months.

So, I had an awesome weekend. On Friday, I went to a meeting after work, and then watched obscene amounts of HIMYM with [Bad username or site: ”akselwestlund” @ livejournal.com] and [Bad username or site: ”mirazandar” @ livejournal.com] Then, on Saturday, my combined going away party and birthday party was a blast! Due to [Bad username or site: ”aj_stalin” @ livejournal.com]s unfortunate incident with a midget, we had to do it in my small apartment, and it was packed, but hey, who needs more than 1m3 anyways? Everyone got inside the door, and we mingled and talked, and listened to great music, and drank obscene amounts of alcohol and were generally awesome. I haven’t felt as sexy in a good long while and I got lots of pressies! Plus, people I haven’t met for a year showed up! Oh, it was so great!

Sunday was spent basically cleaning the apartment (or, at least taking out the trash and empty bottles), and watching Weeds and Memento. Memento, kinda obvious, but good movie. Weeds I’ve seen before but it’s still nice. I gave into my craving and ordered a pizza from Spice. It was good, and it came with a pizza roller so now we don’t have to cut our own pizzas with knives anymore, but it just isn’t the same as the Peppe’s Pizzas I’m sad to admit. Anyways it was nummy, and I didn’t eat it all, so I still feel like a good person.

Yesterday, when I got home from work and then beers/wine with [livejournal.com profile] lurvelille, there was a package waiting for me in the mail. It was the drivers' licences of Alex Tully and Corinna Wiles! I love you [livejournal.com profile] chesire_monkey! THey were so utterly awesome.

I had a great weekend. On friday I got drunk at [livejournal.com profile] aj_stalins place. We watched Party Monster and ate Indian food. It was good. My friend from Bergen, Guri, came lateish and I got drunker than I thought.

On Saturday we went out and drank pitchers of beer at Maiden. Me and Guri ran out to parliament, climbed the lion and kissed each other on his back for all of Oslo to see. Then we danced to the street drummers tune, first with each other and then with strange men who I think was trying to flirt with us even though we didn't really let them. In the end we went home together.

On Sunday I had coffee with my parents, watched obscene amounts of movies with [livejournal.com profile] sortkatt and [livejournal.com profile] 45hasle and said goodbye to Guri who went back to Bergen.

All in all, a very good weekend.

Today is a good day. The entire week I’ve been completely dead tired, but today, even though I haven’t slept anymore tonight than I have the rest of the week, I’m well rested, make-uped and happy. I’ve been relatively effective at work so far, and I’m leaving early so I have time to clean the house before I get a visit from the lovely Guri this weekend. I’m a little bit excited about that actually, since she’s totally cute and stuff.

I’ve just discovered a new or, not new, but new to me artist called Jack Johnson and the music just speaks to me. It’s music to fit this day: Calm, happy and with funny rhythms.

Here's a video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KefLz4DDrjo (it's fun and has Ben Stiller in it)

I hope you’re all shiny!
