Archives For Every-daily posts

I have been listening to a lot of podcasts lately. I had never really explored the podcast section of spotify, and the only podcast I have really followed before is Off Topic, by Achievement Hunter. I was in need of more entertainment, and after a brief search, I found quite a few that I started listening to. Most of them are on fucked up subjects. I tend to get fascinated by the psychology behind certain things. Listener’s discretion is advised for the four middle ones, and certain episodes of Astonishing Legends, because they can be quite graphic in their details. (i.e mentions of drugs, child abuse, murder and so on).

Astonishing Legends


Scott & Forrest have been called the ‘Click and Clack of esoterica’ by their listeners. Their mission is to take a look at legendary strange and unusual events from throughout history and interview people who’ve had close encounters with the unexplained. They strive to bring you everything that’s entertaining about those stories and remind you that it’s ok to laugh at scary stories and respectfully, even the people that tell them. Put your headphones on, settle in for your commute and get ready to experience a show like nothing you’ve ever heard before.

This is one of the ones I most recently stumbled upon, and I was hooked within minutes of listening. They are great story tellers and they touch upon anything and everything and make it seem like the most interesting thing in the world. It’s a lot about paranormal stuff, a lot about death, unsolved mysteries and whatnot. You can listen to it here, or on Spotify.



Mystery. Manipulation. Murder. Cults are associated with all of these. But what really goes on inside a cult? More specifically, what goes on inside the minds of people who join cults and leaders who start them? Every Tuesday, Greg and Vanessa explore the history and psychology behind the most notorious cults.

Cults is a podcast that talks about, you guessed it, cults! It has touched on cults like The Nuwaubian Nation, The People’s Temple, The Branch Davidians, Aum Shinrikyo, The Family, Heavens Gate and more. It’s so interesting to hear about what happens behind clsoed walls, and what would drive someone to start a cult and abusing people. If you’re very sensitive to touchy subjects, I wouldn’t recommend  listening to this. If you do want to, you can listen to it here, or on Spotify.



You think you know the story…But do you really? Every other Saturday, Tales presents ancient fairy tales the way they were originally told: orally, and unadulterated.

Tales is a podcast where the host, Vanessa, talks about fairy tales, but in their original form. Not the kid friendly versions we have grown up to know, but the horrifying original tales. It’s crazy to see how much they have been altered over the years. You can listen to it here, or on Spotify.

Serial Killers


Every Monday, Serial Killers takes a psychological and entertaining approach to provide a rare glimpse into the mind, methods and madness of the most notorious serial killers with the hopes of better understanding their psychological profile. With the help of real recordings and voice actors, we delve deep into their lives and stories.

This one is the same format as cults, giving an insight into the psychology of serial killers and their lives. It’s also hosted by the same people, so if you enjoy listening to cults, you will definitely like this one too! It has episodes about a lot of people, including Ted Bundy, John Wayne Gacy and Elizabeth Bathory. You can listen to it here, or on Spotify.

Haunted places


You’ve heard of haunted houses, haunted cemeteries, haunted islands…but do you know how a normal place can become paranormal minefield? Every haunted place on earth has a frightening, real backstory. Greg (Co-Host of Serial Killers and Cults) takes you on an audio tour of a new haunted place, and it’s haunted history, every episode. Spooky legends, weird histories, and tales of the supernatural… Listen at your own risk.

This one is about haunted places around the world. It talks about the stories of the place, the legends, what people think really happened and it includes some dramatization just to make it even more creepy. I both love and hate this podcast at the same time because it creeps me out but it’s also very interesting. You can listen to it here, or on Spotify.

Flash Forward


Flash Forward is a podcast about the future. Each episode we take on a possible (or not so possible) future scenario — everything from the existence of artificial wombs, to what would happen if space pirates dragged a second moon to Earth.

This podcast is about hypothetical scenarios about our future. The host reaches out to experts in different fields and talk about hypothetical situations, as mentioned in the description, it could be anything from having two moons to not needing women for procreation anymore. It’s very interesting. You can listen to it here, or on Spotify.

Do you listen to any podcasts? What is your favorite one?

March 2018 Goals

Lise —  March 1, 2018 — 10 Comments


Let’s first look at February’s goals. I had a few I wanted to complete, or improve on. First one was to exercise more. I don’t know if it was more as in more intense, but I did do yoga every day. I was on sick leave for half of February already because of an issue with my leg so wasn’t much else I could do. I’m not sure if I’ll be able to work out too much more in March if I’m gonna go through some medical procedures, and my sick leave got extended until at least 18th of March.

The second was to read more. I finished a book, at least! And started a couple more. I have mostly worked on my blog this month, making pinterest graphics and cleaning up/deleting old posts I haven’t been happy with. This month I’ll aim to maybe finish two books? Double my score, right? If I don’t succeed, at least I have tried! Any pages read is an improvement anyways.

Then we had this one, which was to apply for a bachelor’s program. I did! So now I just have to wait until July when they sent out responses to all of the applications. Going to be a long and dreadful wait.

I was very pleased to complete most of my goals for the previous month. This month isn’t as eventful, sadly. Lot’s of medical stuff.

Undergo surgery. I have an 18 year old permanent injury in my leg with a chronic open wound. They’ve finally decided that I should get surgery to try to close the wound for good, hopefully I’ll be able to do so in March to get it over with. Would save me lots of money on medical supplies. And it would save a lot of pain and stress over treating the wound, it takes up a lot of my time and hinders me from doing a lot of things.

Prepare for uni life. I applied for a “International communication and translation” course, so I need to brush up on my English grammar and whatnot. I’m glad I kept my old textbooks because they will be very helpful. I have been reading through them and doing the exercises now and then for the past few weeks and I hope I can continue at the same pace. I really hope I’ll get accepted into uni, I really need it now.

Save at least a little bit of money. I always try my best to save, but with a lot of unexpected expenses it can be difficult. I will try my best to stay in the black and not in the red though, having debt is the worst feeling.

This month’s goals post is short, but sweet. Do you have any goals for this month? Or any resolutions you have succeeded at yet?

5 things I often say

“Uhm….” (Whenever I am in an awkward situation, which happens too often.)

“Helvete” (Basically ‘Hell’)

“No.” (For whenever I am asked to do something ridiculous.)

“Do I really need to eat?”

About dying

About having magical powers

What would your lists look like? 

Ebay haul

Lise —  February 8, 2018 — 16 Comments

Before Christmas I decided I wanted to treat myself to some stuff from my Wishlist, and some stuff I just randomly stumbled upon that looked awesome. The most expensive thing was the sweater, and the rest combined cost less than that. Here’s what I got, and my thoughts on them. The currencies can be quite different from each other, I’m just listing what they cost at this point when I’m writing this.

Skyrim ‘Ugly’ Christmas Sweater – I love the game, and I’ve been looking for more merch for it for ages, so I was really happy to find this. It’s a very cozy sweater and I wear it as often as I can, even though it’s not Christmas anymore. $49.99


Two linen fabric pillow cases – One with moons and stars and one Harry Potter inspired. They’re not the best material, but what would you expect for the price? At least they didn’t bleed or transfer when washing them so that is a plus. $3.59 per piece.


Blue Lucite Brooch and a Wolf Brooch – They’re both super sturdy and easy to wear. I use the Blue Lucite the most just to add a pop of color to my outfits since they are mostly all  black. C$4.89 for the Blue Lucite and $1.49 for the wolf.


A fake ear cuff –  I love this one because I’ve had piercings in both of my ears but I’ve never been able to keep them because my body rejects pretty much any kind of metal. That’s why I love these fake ear cuffs so I can pretend my ears are still pierced. AU$1.


Victorian inspired choker – I love this one. It looks so elegant and nice and I would definitely pair this with a black dress or a dressy top. $1.78


Black Lace Bracelet – I mostly purchased this to check the quality and it’s actually not that bad. Everything is made pretty sturdy and it has been holding together so far. AU$1.98


Black Velvet Choker – This one was quite flimsy. I had to re-glue it because they had just put a tiny dollop of glue where it wraps around the ring, but it was fairly easy to fix anyways. AU$1


Pearl Headband Jewelry – This one was a fluke. It looked nothing like the listing, and it came broken with pearls spilling everywhere. I gave a negative feedback and the seller tried to bribe me into leaving a positive review instead by refunding 50p. No thanks. £1.24


Dark Forest Tapestry – This is one of those where you get what you pay for. It looks nice, but the fabric is so sheer so I would recommend hanging this on a darker wall for it to look nicer. I wanted to cover something up but it shines through. It makes my reading nook look cozy though. AU$7.94 


So yeah, that was my semi-successful eBay haul! Have you purchased anything exciting from eBay lately?

February 2018 goals

Lise —  February 1, 2018 — 27 Comments


Was there any goals I didn’t achieve from the month before? Yes, there was a few. I haven’t really done updates on my goals before but here goes. This list will be a mix of updates on old goals, and adding in some new goals for this month.

Exercise more. Did I? No, not really. With my mom being on holiday, I had to help my dad with his work and delivering packages and all that jazz so I have barely had time for anything at all this month. Hoping to succeed on that in February. Might be getting a work out buddy so that could help with actually getting to the gym and being motivated.

Get back into reading. As with working out, I didn’t really have time for reading either. I usually read in the evenings but my days have been so long so I pretty much fell asleep very soon after getting in bed. It’s great that I got to sleep but I would have also liked to getting some reading done. Hoping I’ll be able to do more of that in February. I really want to re-read the Metro series, so I suppose that will be my starting point.

Apply for a bachelor’s program. I was studying English literature and language but it just didn’t feel right, the subjects weren’t really my thing, and the second year was mostly about Norwegian grammar for some reason, so I wanted to try something new. I found one for International communication and translation and that’s more up my alley. I really hope I will be accepted to study that because I really need to get a degree in something. It’s also in a city hours away from home so that will be nice to get away from everything.

Use up leftovers more often. I tend to forget about leftovers both in the freezer and in the fridge and I need to break that habit. It’s better for the environment, and for my wallet if I’m able to use it all up instead of having it go bad and then throwing it out afterwards.

Get better at planning. I haven’t been good at planning at all over the past few months and that definitely needs to change. I need to think ahead, save, plan and utilize everything I have to make my life better and less stressful.

And that’s pretty much it. I’m sure there are others things I want to achieve too but I can’t put them down in words at this moment. What are your goals for this month?
