I'm swimming in the smoke

Once again, I'm going to write about a friend. And this time I actually mean a friend. She's really nice and all, but. She's really competitive. And believe, it can get very annoying. Also, she seems to have this compulsion to having her "own" things. Which also can be terribly irritating.

So, something to begin with. She has chosen way too many courses to study. She keeps on complaining about how hard her schedule is, and wants everyone to sympathise with her. I've for example had to leave out a few courses I would have like to study because I know I won't have time, or energy, to complete them all. If you dare to mention this, she starts going off about how she wants to study everything. Well there you go, it's not my fault if you want to study everything, feel free to do it but don't complain. It's your choice, don't expect people to feel sorry for you. No offence or anything.

Also, she has this constant need to bring up things that she thinks are her own. I mean, don't we all want to have something that's like our thing, something others don't know about. Like a great song, movie or book, pretty much anything, but something none of our friends know about. Well that's completely fine.
But when you make a scene out of it, it definitely isn't. Yes go on, have your own things, but don't come bragging about them to others. It's not cool anymore if you have to make everyone know about your things. It makes you sound self-centred and lame. Again, no offence, but still.

Yet one thing (again). I hate when people don't watch or listen or do something just because it's popular. I mean, okay, if it just doesn't interest you. But refusing from something just because everyone else is up to it is, to my mind, just pathetic. And if you're not doing that something, don't brag about it. If you don't watch Twilight because it's a lame teen thing, okay, but going off "I'm so good and above everyone else because I'm not a teen because I don't watch Twilight" or so is not. Because that's what, it seems, to be behind it after all. The I'm-better-than-everyone-else –attitude. Seriously come out of the little box you live in and listen to yourselves.

But enough about whining about things. I'm getting tired of this myself. So guess I'll drown myself in the Harry Potter and think about something else for a change.

Raise your glass if you are wrong in all the right ways

I was just wondering whether people have just somehow ended up here, or whether they actually read something I write. So, here's a challenge:

Comment. Or give me some kind of a clue that you read (or didn't read) it. Also, I'd be more than happy if you gave me ideas to write about.

I don't think I need to tell you but anyways: Pink - Raise Your Glass

EDIT: I just read about Taylor Swift's Speak Now World Tour 2011. But, surprise surprise, she won't be visiting my country. Passing by quite close but not close enough. Just my luck. I've really been looking forward to her concert here one day, but I guess I'll just have to wait. Why does everything have to happen in the US? It's just not fair. The rest of the world is here too, in case you haven't noticed.

But anyhow, better get going now. Maybe I'll drown my sorrow to a nice cup of hot chocolate and Harry Potter and the Order of Phoenix which I've been reading recently. I've been having the translated book in other hand and looking up every single word that sounds interesting (and I've actually learned new words!). Thanks to this I've realised how stupid my language actually is: everything sounds so much better when in English. It's actually been quite illuminating. If you get what I mean.

Here's a few examples about, well, languages. It's Hakuna Matata. There's quite a lot of these, but it was too much fun listening to them. Try them. At least a few. Which one's worst? There's a poll in the end, go vote!

This first one goes for you in Denmark! Danish.



















Which one sounds worst?

Live is life

The weather's perfect (sun, snow, temperature -12 °C (for your information that's 10.4 ºF)). No exams left, no homework, just the whole weekend for enjoying life. What else could you ask for? So, enough blogging now, I'm going to enjoy life!

P.S. The title: Opus - Live Is Life

P.P.S. Isn't this beautiful. "... or worse, expelled."

You think, think, think about it

I just wanted to share this. I just was awesome somehow.

And the title: Blues Brothers - Think

I'm in love with a fairytale

Sorry, but I had to.

Title: Alexander Rybak - Fairytale

I am a woman on a mission

Mission impossible. That's how I'd call my mission, which I've been on for quite a while now. Two years to be exact. And my mission is to find a perfect wool coat. Seems to be impossible.
I know, I'm a little picky. But, when I buy something, I want it to be something I could wear forever. Of course, at some point I'll get tired of it, but still. When I invest (and don't tell me buying a wool coat isn't investing, they're expensive enough, for me at least) I want to invest in something that has a good quality and actually think about my investment. And when I come across with my perfect wool coat I'll know immediately that it's the one!

I've had way too many clothes that I've bought 'cause they looked nice, wore maybe once and forgot to the closet. Of course, every now and then it's good to buy stuff on the spur of the moment, but still. I've bought way too many impulse buys in my life...

But I didn't really have anything more to say. English exam tomorrow, wish me luck!

But the title: Gabriella Cilmi - On A Mission

P.S. I bought a great pair of high heels yesterday. My first ones, to be exact. So far the closest thing I've ever had was a pair of ballerina shoes with a centimetre (that's 0,393700787 inches just to let you know) high sort-of-a-heel. So lets hope I wont fall when it's time to wear them.

I can't wait, I can't wait

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 was AWESOME. It was the best one so far, and I could've easily  sat there for another two and a half hours to watch the other part too. Too bad I'll have to wait six months! Not fair. And remember, I'm not one of those freaky people who go to the premiere wearing a which hat (or whatever they're called) and a cloak. Not quite.

Also, as I live here in middle of nowhere (okay maybe not, but anyway) I only now found out about Emma Watson's new hairdo. And I love it! Check it out.

Also (yes I'm fully aware that I just said that but who cares) I've always had a thing about Rupert Grint. He's just so sympathetic and cute in the movies, and well, that's how he seems to me. So maybe I should say that I have a thing about Ron (and I'm jealous of Hermione then...). Okay just joking.
But who possibly could say no to this:

But as you (hopefully) didn't guess the title this time:
Madcon - Glow

I'm living a teenage dream

I'm so excited! For a change. And there's a good reason. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 is waiting for me. In the movies, tomorrow!

Okay, and don't get me wrong. I'm not one of those Harry Potter forever -fanatics. But I like it anyhow. I know this might sound like a cliché, but I've kinda grown up with Harry Potter. I got the first book when I was ten - at least I think so. Because I can remember waiting for my eleventh birthday when I always hoped that an owl would fly in and give me the letter. I mean, who didn't wait for that? Nobody just wants to admit it...
Anyway, by the time the sixth book came out I couldn't wait for the translated version and I read it in English. Same with the last one. So I guess in some way you could call me a fan, but I wouldn't say that. But there's something about it.

Another "teen"-phenomenon I like is, big surprise, Twilight. But it's a different story this time. I remember a friend of mine telling about the books a few years ago, and I thought they sounded (to be honest) crap. Apart from Harry Potter I've never been really into fantasy. So I payed no attention to it.
Then, when the movie become such a hit, I thought that maybe I could go watch it. Besides, another friend of mine was desperate of seeing it so I promised that I'd go with her. After the movie I was dumbfounded. It was actually good. So I borrowed the books from the first friend I told you about and read them, also the last one which wasn't out in my language yet. It came out like almost a year after the first movie.
So, I like Twilight. But not because it's a teen sensation or the actors are good-looking - no way. I'm one of those who actually don't find Robert Pattinson attractive. Taylor Lautner is another story... I like the story, and prefer the books. The movies are good too, though.

I find it sort of problematic that I resist the mass-teen-phenomenon Twilight has become, but I actually like it. It seems that if you like it, you're straight classified as a blond-wannabe-teen wearing Team Jacob -T-shirts. No way. (And as you want to know, I'm on Jacob's side and always been, before Taylor Lautner became so good-looking. I think it's sad that so many Team Edward -teens changed to Team Jacob when the second movie came out. And I know this makes me sound like one of them and I'm furious because bimbo-teens stole my opinion, but that's not the case. I'm just saying. I've never really been a vampire-fan.)
So I tell you, that I like Twilight. I'm not going to lie just because it's considered lame liking it. But I also think it's lame that you won't see the movies or read the books just because of the phenomenon. I mean if the story sounds interesting you might as well check it out, not stick with the I'm-not-a-teen -attitude. So what if you are?

But one thing bothers me more than anything. The fact that many of the fans are like twelve or thirteen. The youngest one I've seen was ten. I mean, if you're that age there's no way you can understand the books that well and really like the story. Then it's more about the phenomenon. And the last book is definitely not for so young girls. (Why not guys too, but I know no guy who'd be reading Twilight.)

But enough about Twilight for now. I should be studying, so this was my excuse for staying out of it. But as i have to face it anyway, it could as well be sooner as it could be later. Harry Potter tomorrow!
And the title: Katy Perry - Teenage Dream. Hope you noticed the sarcasm there.

Look at this photograph

By the way, I just wanted to let everyone know about this awesome site called Check it out!
Here's a little preview of what you can find there!

And the title, as if you didn't know

Baby you're a firework

For a change I thought I could actually write about something.
I've had a few rough days lately trying to cope with the people in my life. And now I'm talking about two people in particular.

Okay, so the other one first. Let's call her Mary. So Mary and I used to be good friends, pretty much best friends. But a year ago Mary moved to the other side of the country. We didn't see that much, only on weekends when she came home. But she had really changed. I'm not saying it was unpredictable, as the characteristics had been there before. Not that strong, but they were there, and they really annoyed me.
You see, Mary here is the most hypocrite person I've ever met. I can't exactly explain it, but she is. Like for example, she always says that it's okay if someone doesn't want to drink, but you can see from the way she looks at these people that she loathes them. Like they were somehow handicap.
Also, she is quite a princess. Now that she lives on her own she thinks that she's in charge of everything. She can't cope with her parents telling her what to do when she's home. Nor any criticism. Her parents are quite strict and she couldn't even imagine doing anything "forbidden" at home, but she judges others for being cowards. I can't help it but hypocrite people make me see red!

And this other person, let's call him Mike. Mike here is the most selfcentered person in this world. He thinks about nothing but himself, and he treats other people like they're pieces of litter he can spit on. He has no respect for others, and thinks himself as the owner of the universe. I just wonder how come someone can be like that for real?
But anyhow, trying to keep positive, and this song definitely helps in it. It reminds that everyone's important!

Katy Perry - Firework (is the title, too)
