Phony Winter

Highlights:

Hoe easily my absence from this blog can be explained: I got a new phone for my birthday! Hurray for Phony! And suddenly I didn’t need to drag my heavy camera around with me. A phone is more than sufficient for capturing everyday moments. Which I’ve been doing and posting on my tumblr-playground here.

Some Changes

 

I worry that I’m not using my Norwegian enough. What if I one day wake up to find it rusty? I’ll try to make a sentence, try and describe something, but it will come crooked and clumsy. Ops, that’s already happening. So from now I’ll be writing in Norwegian too. It will be especially important now, since I’m quite sure that Milli, the star of this blog this week, doesn’t master English very well. Ah, I’m so fortunate to have her now that summer has finally arrived Norway. Milli forces me to enjoy the weather at least three times a day. Thank you, my furry BFF.

Milli in action

Today, we’ve been exploring Drammen.

Det er vakkert å ha hund i Drammen, spesielt i disse dager (heldige meg som får leke hundeeier i nettopp denne tiden!). Sommeren er endelig her, og jeg har en liten Jack Russell som tvinger meg til å nyte finværet minst tre ganger om dagen. I dag har vi utforsket Drammen by.

I’m officially a journalism bachelor and installed in my new apartment in Drammen. The stress of the last couple of weeks has abruptly been replaced with holidays. Not that I should be taking a vacation – I should be searching for jobs! But the weather is just.so.good! Perfect for exploring my new town! And so far, I’ve found these amazing mirror balls. They’re placed on the opposite sides of the Drammen river, and not only can you mirror yourself in front of spectacular fisheye-views – the balls make sounds too! They calculate the weight of the people crossing the bridge and make eerie noises! I realize I’ll have to tape it one day, but in the meantime:

ponytail gets new home

The Ponytail is my little palm tree companion. Mom gave it to me as a moving-to-Oslo-present. Lucky me! Mom gives me presents for everything. Little Ponytail and I have now moved to the glorious city of Drammen. I spent almost three hours getting to Oslo this morning. Not a good beginning (it was the first time I took the train). The journey is supposed to take 30 minutes! In the meantime, my Ponytail has been enjoying the sun.

That happy plant! Makes me smile 🙂
