My week in review!

This week has been pretty damn uneventful, to be honest. I was back at school, bought a bunch of curriculum and this past Friday, I had to walk from the train station to my home with a backpack filled with heavy books alongside my computer, a bag filled with two soda bottles, chocolate and a bag of snacks, and an umbrella, because it was raining. The distance between the train station and my home? More than two kilometers. Not that far in sunny weather, very far in rainy weather.

On Friday I met with Cathrine, and we watched the Texan Chainsaw Massacre from 1974. Fucking disturbing, yet awesome movie.

I was in Sweden yesterday, bought a new robe, some eyeshadow, eyeliner and a concealer. Little things a girl like me needs in order not to fucking collapse. I am a cosmetics addict, and it is not fun anymore.

Otherwise, I got out of bed today and stretched, my fist hit my lamp and now it is positively not working anymore. Not really that strange, given how it is twenty-tree fucking years old and should have been replaced a long time ago.

We have a new subject in school this year, which I have discovered a liking to, which is good, at the very least.

Hope you had a good one.

Pretty libraries.

As you all know by now, I study library and information science. So the other day, after having been on internship at a significantly small library, I started dreaming away for a moment. So I looked up some exclusive and beautiful libraries. Take a look!

Back to school!

Back on the railways again.

It felt good being back at college, as a matter of fact. I could obviously do well without the train rides, but seeing my friends again and hearing about their vacations and internships was wonderful. I feel like I understand so much more of the theory we are learning now that I have been on internship, and seen the actual practice of the subjects I am taking.

I was dead tired when I got home, even though the day itself only consisted in a lesson of just about two hours – not even that. I got so used to an easier every day-life, but I will get back on track eventually.

Here is a picture of me, taken on the train today, because I am an obnoxious idiot, who has no other way to kill time but to take selfies.


Catching up!

It takes too long between each time I decide on blogging, I’m sorry.

Anyway, my internship is over and done with, and it has truly been an enlightening and refreshing experience. It’s funny how the library studies are so theoretical when the profession itself is a very much practical one, so I believe it is a good idea to sign us all up for an internship already before the second semester begins. I know a lot of people are contemplating dropping out at the moment, due to the fact that they have no idea what they have signed up for, and I can understand that, because the theoretical aspect is so different from the actual practical one we will be served with once we have gotten our diplomas. Of course, there is a chance we have so much theory now just to get on to the practical part later, but there is no way for me to be sure, of course.

I go back to school tomorrow, and on Tuesday I will be presented with a new class that is very much based on literature, which I am looking forward to. Cataloging is getting tiring after a while, to put it lightly.

Anyway, considering I have some hours to kill each day, as I travel by train to Oslo, chances are I will be blogging more frequently again now that my every day life is back to normal.

Wish me luck, and take care!
