Oslo these days is like: sun OFF, sun ON, sun off and on. But no matter the weather, it’s eternal sunshine in my mind (this week).
I finally have a job, you see ^_______^
So for at least ten months, I will not be whining about being an unemployed journalist. Be glad you’ll never see some of my post drafts from last year published; they all start with an account of a quite fortunate and privileged girl’s struggles in the Real World of Adults. Which could have been interesting musings, if the girl writing them didn’t happen to be the least inspiring person on the planet when she’s pitying herself.
Now it’s in the past. I’m working and living in Oslo. Life is good.
Happy to be back in Amsterdam, as always. I had some problems getting back and planned to write something hateful about Eurolines, but they fixed their mistake just fine, so there isn’t really much to complain about anymore. Other than that I had to spend more than two hours in the dark and cold, without any information on the whereabouts of my bus.
I didn’t really have many Christmas expectations this year and I didn’t count on getting anything nice – which might be why everything turned out simply fantastic. I got the two things I needed most in the world, a big purse and lots of socks! But I’m equally happy with the other presents – fifty euro, eye shadow, baby fisheye (that can’t wait to be introduced to you) and a book about Audrey Hepburn, with delightful pictures and quotes. The BBF who wrapped it in, also took the time to scribble down some lines on the opening page, and I though I’d share, because they make me happì:
Prettige Kerstdagen, mon cherie! ‘True friends are families which you can select’ is one of the smart things A. H. has said, according to this book. Word, sier jeg. – og for en fantastisk familie!! 1000 juleklemmer
