Grandmas memory

My grandmother (I call her Mimmi) turned 80 this year, I went over for dinner on Saturday with my mum and my sister. We were talking and my grandmother told us about what they had for dinner during her youngest sons baptism some 45 ++ years ago or something. I could barely remember what we had for dinner at my last birthday party, and my mum could not even remember that we had a birthday party for me at all last year. My grandma remembers everything.

Puppies! (and movies)

After my rather down post this morning, I’m feeling much more upbeat now, thanks to two things: Norwegian Cinema and Balder the Puppy!

I went to see my dad today, and more importantly (don’t tell him) the new puppy! Isn’t he cute?

I can’t remember what breed he is, he looks a bit like a Setter, but it’s a more German sounding name… and he won’t grow as tall as a Setter would.

Puppy joy over with I went to the cinema with some friends, we were the only people in the cinema, but it was an AWESOME film: Kommandør Trehold og Ninja Troppen (Comander Treholt and the Ninja Troop) Its based on true events that took place during the cold war in Norway, except they are seen in a new (and ridiculous) light. Think The Men Who Stare at goats, add some Cloverfield hand held action, conspiracy theories and good guys turned bad and bad guys turned good, spys, historic events turned out to be created by the CIA in order to make Noway Americanized and great great crap effects.

GÅ Å SE!

Feeling the Wednesday morning blues

I’m feeling rather depressed about the whole job thing, as much as I dream about being an artist and would love to do so, it’s just not a viable option at the moment. Living in London I need to have a job that is more financially stable, I need to be able to pay my bills and eat on a regular basis. And it’s pretty depressing, not the thought of having to get a job, but the thought that maybe no one will hire me! I think I’m a pretty good assets to have, I’m all creative and proactive and hard working and all that stuff, I got a bloody 97% MA!

I’ve been thinking about my different options, what kinds of things would I be happy doing for a long time…. And it’s pretty simple: Anything creative and most things digital. I would love to just do this, do on-line marketing type stuff, write blogs, update facebook and twitter. Or I would love to draw. My problem is simple: I don’t have enough work experience, and I cant go off and do an internship, I need to pay rent!! Instead of working I spent my time studying, working really hard  so that I could get a good education, a good MA, and now I’m being punished for it! My other issue is that instead of knowing a little about a lot of packages I know a lot about a few. I’ll keep trying off course, learn new skills, add package to my CV, work another 14 months in a boring shop job…  AND there it is, the reason for my Wednesday morning blues: shop job. I’ll get over it.

In other news: It’s another beautiful day in Norway (where I am currently holidaying in my mothers house) and today it’s looking good, it’s not raining and the sun is out, I’m going to meet up with more friends today, there might be some sushi involved and maybe even some Norwegian cinema! Something about a ninja troop…

SOMEONE GIVE ME A JOB!
