Picture Diary / 31 July / And all was well
Had to take off my dead awesome skull tights after a while because it was like a fucking desert outside.
Back to work tomorrow.
The Edge Of Glory
I see London
Second picture is from the day at South Bank (just like the one I posted a while ago).
Picture Diary / 25 July / Who were you trying to convince?
Spent another day with my grandma. She's still overly excited by our future trip to Gran Canaria. She's been to to traveling agency to look at dates and prices. We'll probably be away over both christmas and new years, but I can't really bring myself to care. It just stings a little to be away form my family at christmas eve. But then again, as I once said: I'd trade in christmas for summer anyday.
I showed her my tattoo today as well, to get it over with. She took it better than I thought she would. There was no "Oh Malin, what have you done" *cries*. She even said it was kinda nice. And I promised I wouldn't do anymore (at least not before then).
And the candle in the last picture she lit for all the people who lost their lives in Norway on 22/7.
And if I should fall to temptation
I usually never write about this sort of things here, but this time it's too close to home to not be mentioned.
I have never felt as touched by something like this as I do about what happened in Norway. I can’t even begin to understand how it must be for the survivors and the kindred to the victims. I am utterly disgusted by people who have such little respect for those with different beliefs, that they feel a need to take lives. It’s sick and it hurts to think about.
My heart goes out to everyone who was even the least bit affected by what happened.
Picture Diary / 21 July / Complaining about the weather makes me feel old
Anyway. I met Cicci because she was coming along to a café called Chez Madame that was having sort of a grand re-opening after moving, and Marie, my old teacher, was having some photos on exhibition (from this project). There we met Marie, obviously, Jeanette and Spoke. It was really nice. Before that me and Cicci had done some shopping (mainly me, bought a jacket and a ring) and ate baked potatoes. I love eating out, wish I could afford to do it more often.
When I came home I had a cup of tea, then went to bed and fell asleep almost straight away.
A Good Day
Yesterday was a good day too. I think I've got some pictures on my phone from it. We'll see.
Picture Diary / 20 July / It's not even that far to the ground if you fall
I'm going to start taking more pictures of everyday things from my life. I can find poetry in everything, and I want to share it with you. The world is full of beautiful things, if you choose to look. And to be and feel good about yourself is the most amazing feeling. I know that now. Love. Love life, love people and love yourself.
Why did you roll your dice?
Anyway, she bought me lunch today, we went for a walk and then went to her place and watched some TV. Or rather, I tried to watch, while she nagged about the social democrats stealing her money in the 90's and people who owned three dogs (bless her). She's a really lovely and strong woman though, who deserves all the happiness and well being that she can get.
All work and...
Work all weekend. Free on Moday and Wednesday. At least work is fun most of the time. Lots of nice people. And I'm spending the evenings re-watching the old Harry Potter films. Seen the first, second, third, fifth and half of fourth so far. Gonna finish the fourth tomorrow and then watch the sixth as well. All in the mood now, because of DH2.
Got two new pairs of shoes. Because obviously I thought I needed more. Well, at least they're both flats.
Now, I'm really sleepy so I'm going to bed soon. Night.
Deathly Hallows pt 2
To watch the Harry Potter movies, not only this one, but all of them, is a pleasure. To appreciate the amazing, wonderful and increadlibly detailed work of JK Rowling's story. And all the build-up for this film was worth it. It was so fantastic. It all really was bottled down to this, and it most certainly did not disapoint. Such beautiful scenery and great actors. And I just have to say that Professor McGonagall is my favourite character and Maggie Smith portrays her brilliantly! I also have a soft spot for Alan Rickman as Snape.
I don't even
Anyway, tomorrow or the day after I'll find out of I'm accepted into University. Am nervous as shit.
Nobody ever had a dream round here, but I don't really mind that it's starting to get to me
like something underground's gonna come up and carry me,
I've got this sentimental heart that beats
but I don't really mind that it's starting to get to me now.
No one changes
I wrote a long post here, but I'm not publishing it. Because that's not what this blog is for. It was something for me and my future therapist.
Sanna and I
Hopefully we'll have some good news to share by the end of next week. Not counting any chickens yet though.
Sanna will be coming around here any minute. I'm really hungry but I don't want to eat anything, in case she hasn't eaten either...
Don't blink. Blink and you're dead.
I suppose it depends on what you mean by edited. Since I made the poster in photoshop it is indeed edited, and the picture from the post in it's whole is edited, but I have not done anything special to just the poster in the photo.
This is the picture I printed, and this is what it looks like in reality:
And all the baby frogs in our garden is gone now!
I've printed some stuff that I've put up around it. The general idea is that the right side is Britain appreciation with "Keep Calm And Carry On", Ashes To Ashes and Doctor Who prints, and the left side is just various pictures I like.
Work again tomorrow so I'm going to bed soon. If there's still people who wonder why I go to bed so early because of work, it's because I start at 7.00 am. My buss leaves just after six. So at the latest I have to wake up 5.30... Then I finish at 14.30.
And a short reply to Moe:
I did have spoons already, but I use teaspoons for almost everything and I only had six of them, so they're always all dirty. Since I'm to lazy to do the dishes as often as I should I bought some more, so I don't have to be bothered with it.
Otherwise I'm very much enjoying my haircolour and making plans on going to bed early. Back to work tomorrow after the weekend off. But next week I'm free for three days! Yay.
Good night, xx.
Still can't quite believe my hair is for real. And I'm very happy with it. When I've got the extensions in it's a little lighter in the tips and got some pink highlights, due to the pigmented conditioner. Was thinking about doing a dip dye, but I get bored of colours like that so easily, so I didn't think it'd be worth if to ruin the extesions like that.
We're soon going to Lund to pick up Lovisa who's coming by train. She's been to Stadium Sports Camp for the past week. She practices Taekwondo and track and field sports (she was at the camp for track and field). And she's actually the current Swedish champion in her weightclass (which is minus forty-something in cadets, not sure of her weight).
Anyway, leaving now!
