we are bad bad chicks when there is a lecture

Dear Diary.
At this moment I'm working on the assignment at home :P as I've just come back from a walk with the dog and my friend J. My doggie was the only one to go crazy this time. (J.K. J!!!) The lecture today was quite fun, J, C and I read C's brother's essay which was (in mild terms) funny. The guy in front of us got quite annoyed ,though, and called us disrespectful. Respect for him? No way! And that is all for now. (Must work, my darlings!)

Click here to help me find songs please!

Dear Diary
Now I'm sitting in my Dads office, waiting for some printouts to arrive. And then I'm gonna have a lecture at 14:15, for then to go ALL THE WAY down to the computer terminal in the computer building. It is quite a distance off, in fact a whole subway station off. But walking there is far more efficient than taking the subway. OH well.
Some more stuff. I need recommendations here. Recommendations for songs. Because there is this special genre, as I like to call it, which is techno/trance with backing opera-like vocals, kinda spiritual and stuff. Here is a list of these kinds of songs that I already know and love, I would like to hear more of these kinds of songs (So if you happen to stumble upon this page and you know similar songs, please please mail me with a list of these, I would be happy just for one song! Thanks):
DJ Sakin and Friends - Protect your mind (Braveheart)
DJ Sakin and Friends - Nomansland
Ian van Dahl - Castles in the Sky
DJ Quicksilver - Heart of Asia
DJ Quicksilver - Ameno
And an update on my reading: I have less than 100 pages left on the second book (The Two Towers) of The Lord of the Rings. I still find that book great! Fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fabulous, as Maya and The Tamperer say. I recommend to anyone I yet haven't recommended it to!
Well, I guess that is all I have to say for this moment, see ya sumtime! :P

i want to work, believe it or not!

Dear Diary.At this moment I am sitting in my Dads office, not being able to work on any other compy, as they are all taken. Thought I just would drop you a line, being on the web. I have a lecture at 14:15, which I am looking so much forward to!!!! :P Anyway, see ya around!

I'm stuffed. OH GAWD!!!

Dear Diary
Today I have been to my Grandparents, who live far out in farmer country. We had a huge dinner, dessert and "coffee and cake", which have left me feeling quite bloated. Or whatever you say about eating too much. I just feel bloated (!!!).
A couple of days ago I got an invitation from my summer job place(http://www.numedal.net/langedrag) to come for a winter weekend stay. I worked there last year as well, where I did go to this stay or gathering or whatever. We had to work. At first, this year, initially I did not wanna go, but I came to a conclusion in the car on the way home. I've left so many garments there that I thought I might as well go. There's a sweater up there I really miss. I just hope noone has stolen it... I really hope to get it back. So I'm going. And I also get to meet old friends, yadda yadda. A good point is that I get a break off my normal life. (Phew!)
Well, thats it for today I guess...

Sick of it all

Dear Diary
I feel sick now.
Sick of computer stuff, sick of a bright screen, sick of everything. Work, work, work! Must it be this bad?

Saturday, November 10, 2001

I am working now, I don't have time to write anything interesting

Dear Diary.
Today I am working on two assignments. I have to work more, yes, I know it. But my willpower is not a great one. Anyway, I just wanna say that I have nothing to tell you at this moment, I will in some hours when I am finished with my assignments. Meanwhile... I'll be working and you'll be resting. Most likely. Lucky bastard.

I like to talk about myself. Or so it seems...

Dear Diary
As I've already written loads today, there is nothing else I have in mind to put down the screen (just to have some visual sensation going here). And hey, if you are wondering what to get me for X-mas (and you understand Norwegian), then I have a wishlist posted at *** (in Norwegian, if you still haven't gotten that). I'm still reading "The Fellowship of the Ring, which I ADORE! (in case you wonder which chapter I'm on, its "The Council of Elrond". Soon I'm gonna go to bed and READ. It is incredible how dull TV really gets when you really get into reading. Yes, I am the average couch potato, but I've had my off periods. My advice is: read books (you can ALWAYS find a genre you like), get fresh air (just move baby, move!) and listen to music (I, at least, need my daily dosage of noise).
I might as well tell you about the kind of music I like. When I'm having a bad day, I usually listen to some crappy superficial Scandinavian pop/dance (Aqua-like music, if you know what I mean) but what really takes me to another level is trance. I'm not a total trance freak and I like the tunes that are catchy, the old classics like "The Launch". I LOVE DJ Sakin and Friends, DJ Quicksilver, DJ Tiƫsto and DJ Jean. As soon as I discover more of this music, I'll be more broad-minded about it. Yes, you trance-fans out there, I'm not a PURE fan as you may call it, but I'm just me. Remixes of classical music always hit it home with me, that is the usual way I discover classical music that I like. Other classical music I was fed with through school, family, etc through my upbringing.
I'm a person of many genres. I was a huge hip-hop fan some years ago, but that part of me is just GONE and I'm glad. OKAY, that's enough blab for tonight, so I'll see ya around?

OH MY GAWD, it has snowed all day!

Dear Diary.
OH JOY. It is snowing... I didn't realise how little I missed snow until it arrived. I'm wearing these really huge childish boots which makes it all... well... interesting. I get weird looks from people as these boots are moonboots... In addition to that I have a hat that makes me look like a fraggle. And a belt that my sis bought at a flea market. It is so cool, so 60s! So today has been an interesting day. I never dress extremely strange, so when I sometimes wear something a LITTLE out of the ordinary compared to others, I don't care about the looks and perhaps the laughs. I rise above them as the special person that I am. Although I look normal I am a pretty odd person. In addition to this I was planning to wear two watches and lotsa bracelets, but I limited both.
So I'm presently wearing one watch, a couple of crappy pearl bracelets I got from a magazine, in addition to a piece of haywire/haystring, whatever you wanna call it, that is a memory from this summer and the one before (I worked with horses far up in the mountains...). I have other bracelets that help me remember things. For example, I have another bracelet, a really crappy glass and metal thing that I got before I went to Ayia Napa. I used to have a RUSS 2001 one, but I cut it off for work one day. I thought it would look pathetic to wear a ticket armband when you worked at an amusement park... I have a bracelet of round blue stones, and two metal parts to it, one says "Wisdom" and the other is shaped like an owl. It reminds me of failing IB, which I almost did... I can't remember any other ones at this moment, but I have a couple. Apart from the fake pearl bracelets and the hayband and the blue Nike sports watch I am wearing a really cool necklace, which matches my obsession with fantasy. It is a leather chain with a big metal pendant that has a big blue sligtly pointed, yet round, glass stone on it. I love it because it makes me feel magical. I know I am strange.
After going on and on about footwear and accesories, I guess I should tell of something else now. Well, I have a cold, a slight one, so I hope to stay home tomorrow as I have no lectures nor groups whatsoever. And it's Friday! But I don't feel like heavy partying. I've had enough of that in the last 3-4 years, so I feel I've grown out of it. Except when on holiday, of course, that's completely different.
Yesterday I saw this really good movie, called "Deep in my Heart". It wasn't as heartbreaking as the channel that broadcasted it was promising, but with sadness as a red line it did have sweet and happy moments. If I have anything else to write, I dunno. Oh, I DID send a mail to M, after she was as nice as to reply to my wonderful Halloween card. And she's gonna send me her book in about three weeks. That'll be great! Well, now I gotta go, as I have a group to attend. If all goes well, I'll be seeing YOU later!

finally found what i was looking for

Dear Diary
I just discovered something wonderful! Anne McCaffrey was the name of the author!!!! She wrote all those cool books. Anne McCaffrey! Well I found out browsing through Amazon.com and the archives at the local library... Innit great?

the story of my fantasy obsession

Dear Diary.
Has been a long while, hasn't it? Well now I am fixing up my assignment which I just know I'm gonna get back for another try. Yesterday I read the book "The Hobbit" by Tolkien which was really good. The reason for reading it is the fact that I'm starting on "The Lord of the Rings" now. I really love fantasy litterature especially because of the magical creatures. My favourite creatures, however, are unicorns.
Why am I actually into this? Well, you would never had guessed it before. But it HAS been in me all these years, I just haven't had the time and will to begin "practising" my slight obsession. It all started with two movies. I haven't read the books that they were based on yet, but I am planning to. These books were "Brothers Lionheart" by Astrid Lindgren and "The Last Unicorn" by Peter S. Beagle. The love for fantasy was further enhanced by a lot of Disney films through the years, but mostly by seeing the movie based on "The Neverending Story" by Michael Ende and the movie "Krull". In addition to these I did read a book from a series of books about 5-6 years ago. I don't remember the name of the author, but the books were of mostly dragons and humans as I remember. I think they were written by a woman, but I don't remember her name. If anyone does, please drop me a line!
I would be most grateful.
Well, now I gotta go work, so that I can go on reading tonight! See ya!!!
