December 5, 2017 — 8 Comments

Untitled design.jpg

Thank you so much to Michala over at Andhonestly for nominating me! I’m usually the one to nominate her so this was a fun change hehe. Go check out her blog, it’s one of my favorites.

The Rules:
1. Thank the person who nominated you and link to their blog
2. Shuffle your entire music library and talk about the FIRST FIFTEEN songs that come up
3. Mention the songs as well as the artists
4. Tag 7 people or more to do this tag and let them know

The music:

  1. Pvris – Anyone else
    I think this is probably my most favorite song from their newest album. I love the music video, with its interesting visuals and interpretive dance and just everything about it makes it my fave.
  2. Pvris – Heaven
    And then this one is probably my least favorite. I think it was because it was the one they used in youtube ads the most and it just got overexposed for me.
  3. Angels & Airwaves – Some origins of fire
    This is one of the songs I listen to the most in the mornings. It’s really chill but it also gets me a bit hyped for the day that is to come so to me it’s the perfect song for early mornings.
  4. Daughter – The end
    This song reminds me of a rather painful time of my life so it’s very bittersweet to listen to. I’m relieved the time is over but I’m still resenting everything about it so much. It’s a really good song though, definitely worth a listen if you’re into that kind of music.
  5. Highly Suspect – My name is human
    This was the first song I listened to by them, and it holds a special place in my heart. I love how they kind of just question our entire existence.
  6. Daughter – A hole in the earth
    This song talks about how one carries pain inside of them and that they wish someone could make sense of it. It speaks to me on many levels. I like it.
  7. Fall out boy – The last of the real ones
    Sooo Fall out boy used to be a massive obsession of mine for many years, starting in 2003. This is kinda different from the style they had but I feel like it suits me more in the situation I am in now. I probably wouldn’t have liked it ten years ago.
  8. Meg Myers – Motel
    One of the first songs I listened to by her and it has stayed as one of my favorites until this day.
  9. Baron Bane – How does it feel to let go
    I listened to this after a bad break up and it has stayed with me since. It really helped me to cope with everything and I don’t think I would ever remove it from my playlist.
  10. Angels & Airwaves – Anomaly
    Another song that I listen to in the morning. It’s kind of upbeat and kind of sad at the same time, it’s weird but in a very good way.
  11. Blink 182 – I miss you
    This is one of my favorite songs of all time. The music video is amazing with it’s 1920’s visuals and movie vibes and the melody is great. I know it all by heart and I can’t help but to sing along whenever it plays.
  12. Tom DeLonge – Animals
    I don’t know what to say about this one, I just love it a whole lot. I don’t know if it is concerning that Tom has earned four spots on this list so far.
  13. Echos – Silhouettes
    This was an accidental find because I was supposed to listen to their song ‘tomorrow’ but I didn’t remember what it was called at the time. I instantly fell in love with this one though.
  14. Taylor Swift – …ready for it?
    I used to love ‘look what you made me to’ until I listened to this and immediately abandoned the other one. This one is so good and I really like the music video too.
  15. Monakr – Wherever
    I found this on my release radar, or was it weekly discovery list on spotify? Good find though, I like it a whole lot!

My nominees:

  1. Halsdoll
  2. Lisa
  3. Hitherdither
  4. Grace
  5. DanniiJane

Plus Karalee and Rei but they were also nominated by Michala.

Throwback Thursday

October 12, 2017 — 12 Comments

This throwback won’t go very far, just back to the Christmas holiday of 2016, leading up to New years. Christmas is pretty much my favorite holiday, although I’ve always had to work during it. This year I will finally have some time off so I’m looking forward to it while reminiscing about last years Christmas. My sister invited us over to her apartment for Christmas so that will be fun.

Besides working, I spent my time making hot chocolates, baking gingerbread cookies, and then I spent some of new years eve playing a game called Year Walk, which is based on Swedish folk lore. It’s rather creepy but also very cool, and it contains a lot of puzzles and symbols you need to remember, as you can see by the drawings I did on my hand. Afterwards I went outside to watch the fireworks, it was really nice.

I’m just hoping this year will be as good, hopefully even better!
What would be featured in your Throwback Thursday?

3 things about me

  • For a long time I was able to use my left hand just as well as my right. I had shattered my pinky finger on my right hand and had to learn to use my left while it was healing and in a cast.
  • My hair has been every color of the rainbow and more, except for blue. Not sure why it has never been that color though, it’s really pretty!
  • The thought of having cotton or paper anywhere near my mouth really freaks me out.. And it always makes dentist visits weird because they use cotton things to soak up any saliva or blood..

 Questions from Abby

  1. What’s your favourite thing about blogging? Being able to express my thoughts however I want, whenever I want.
  2. Whose someone you would like to meet? There are a lot of people, mostly those I have gotten to know through blogging, they are all so sweet! I’m really awkward in real life though, so I would probably scare them off.
  3. If you could be any animal what would you be and why? I would be a cat! All they do is sleeping, eating or receiving cuddles.. Sounds perfect!
  4. What would be your ideal Sunday? Writing blog posts, sipping on some sparkling water, listening to music then read for a while.
  5. Favourite Disney Movie? Hmm, I don’t watch a lot of movies, but I do enjoy Anastasia.

Questions from Nilsa

  1. What’s your favourite quote? This is from a video game, a bit silly but it has stuck with me for quite a few years. “Na via lerno victoria” It is in Tevene, the language of the Tevinter Imperium in Dragon Age. The quote means “Only the living know victory”.
  2. Do you have a celebrity crush? 
    Yes? Kinda? Does Ryan Haywood count as a celebrity? He’s oh so dumb but also lovely. And he lost his marbles a long time ago.

  3. What’s your least favourite thing about blogging? The spam comments… they’re so tiring to go through and to delete.
  4. Are you named after anyone? No, none that I know of!
  5. Scary movie or happy endings? And why? I prefer happy endings to scary movies, but my favorites are those movies where you don’t really know how it ends, it just leaves you with a million questions.

My questions for you

  1. If you could rearrange the seasons, in what order would you have them?
  2. Say, you get the chance to go to a different planet, would you do it?
  3. What is your favorite make up brand?
  4. What was your goal when you started blogging? Did/have you achieved it?
  5. Have you met anyone famous in real life? What was it like?

My best post

I’m not sure about this one! The one that has the most comments currently is “26 things I have learned in 26 years“.

 

I nominate anyone who reads this, so tag, you’re it! I’ve nominated so many people for this lately so if you want to do this, go ahead! I don’t want to end up nominating the same people over and over. 🙂

The Happiness Tag

August 7, 2017 — 18 Comments

I was tagged in this by my friend Rylie, but she didn’t want her blog linked because she writes about very personal subjects so I’m afraid I can’t do that! But thank you for the nomination either way, I really appreciate it.


The rules for this tag

  • List five things that makes you happy
  • Share five songs that makes you happy
  • Tag at least five bloggers that makes you happy

What makes me happy

  1. My cats. I don’t know what I would have done without them. They are always there if I need someone to vent to (even though they can’t talk back, I still talk to them about anything I need to). They are always there if I need something to hold, something to cuddle with to cheer me up. I love them more than anything in this world. They say cats are selfish but mine are far from it.
  2. Books. I love being able to read. Being able to escape to another world for a little while. Same goes for video games. Escapism is very much a real thing for me and a lot of the time it happens without me even noticing.
  3. Being able to connect with people all over the world. I live in a place with very few people and meeting new people is a difficult task. That is why I am so grateful for having the internet, being able to connect with others without having to travel to a place to do so. I guess ‘without restrictions’ is what I meant to say.
  4. Nature. Nature makes me happy. I love being outside, I love exploring the woods, walking through fields, picking the occasional berry as I walk past them. Nature is wonderful and the fresh air can always make you feel better. (Apart from during the pollen season, I always feel like death then).
  5. Being organized, that always makes me happy. I hate being messy, I hate not having things neatly put in place. Having a clean and organized home is my favorite feeling. It really helps me with feeling accomplished in life. Doesn’t matter how messy my head is as long as my home is clean.

Five songs that makes me happy

I don’t really have any overly joyful happy songs, so I’ll share some that makes me feel content, makes me feel wholesome. I think I have shared all of these before, but my favorites rarely change.

  1. Pvris – Half
  2. Meg Myers – Motel
  3. Blink 182 – I Miss you
  4. Highly Suspect – Bath Salts
  5. Chaos Chaos – Do you feel it

Five bloggers that makes me happy

I guess it’s more than 5, oops. And in no particular order.

  1. Michala
  2. Karalee
  3. Reeva
  4. Rei
  5. Storm
  6. Grace
  7. DanniiJane ( you can just share your response in the comments, it probably doesnt fit in with the travel blogs 🙂 )
  8. Abby
  9. Lisa (hey this isn’t an award! 🙂 )

versatile_blogger1

Thank you so much to Rei for nominating me for this! The last time I was nominated was in May, which was quite some time ago! I always struggle with these kinds of posts though, because I never find facts about myself to be interesting enough to post! But I will try my best!

Rules :

You have to thank the person who nominated you for this award and provide a link to their blog.

Link the nominees and inform them about their nomination.

Nominate at least 15 bloggers of your choice

Share 7 facts about yourself.

7 facts about me:

  1. I am currently obsessed with ASMR videos! There is just something about them that gives me the greatest tingly feeling and they are so incredibly relaxing! This is my current favorite of the bunch:
  2. I am really introverted and I struggle a lot with social anxiety, so I spend most of my free time outside of work by myself. But sometimes I just force myself to go into town, to visit the mall, just to socialize with people.
  3. I am a very light sleeper! The smallest sound could wake me up, which is why i prefer living away from the city, out in the countryside where it’s more quiet. When i lived in the city, seagulls woke me up at 5 AM every morning and I absolutely hated it!
  4. At the age of 25 and a half, I still have no idea what I want to do in life! I feel like it’s too late to decide and that I should just find a mediocre job to settle in to, but I don’t want to do that at all.
  5. I love reading, drawing, painting and so on, but I always forget to purchase craft supplies so I rarely get to unleash my creativity.
  6. Even if Norwegian is my first language, I always prefer to speak English instead. I don’t know why I am like that but I feel way more comfortable using a different language than my own.
  7. Over the years I have kind of lost my love for gaming a little bit, but I do have these regular cycles where I play a lot, then not so much, then back to playing a lot again. But I did lose the passion for most of my hobbies when my ex and I went separate ways a year ago.

I nominate:

Michala

Karalee

 Lisa

Hitherdither

And anyone else who wants to do this!
