VIRGINIA

DAY 1

The day had arrived it's Sunday and it's also the same Sunday we had to turn the time back an hour at 3 am. I called the taxi company that they had to pick me up at 2.30 am, new time, after the time was turned back. But for some reason, 2.30 am old time, they called and said they're on their way. Had to cancel it, idiots. WAIT UNTIL THE TIME IS 3.AM AND THEN TURN THE TIME BACK. Oh well. I called another company and they managed to pick me up at the right time. So I got down at the bus station, way too early, so I froze my ass off. Of course the bus was late, but when we arrived at the airport, it's actually on time.

At the airport I saw a beautiful young man, and he smiled at me twice and I, I get so awkward when people do that, so I probably scared him off with my weird smiley face. I lost him at the airport in Belgium, oh well. At least I had something nice to look at on the way down there.

Got some awkward questions before I got allowed to board the plane. Asked what I was gonna do, what I did in my sparetime, where I lived, what I did for a living etc. Finally got onboard and got a seat by the window and the girl beside of me, was like a copy of Lena Dunham.

Got to Chicago, had to find my bag and check it in again. Took the tram to a terminal and then went through the security again. I was going to meet a family friend, but she worked on the other side, so I went to United Lounge and bought a one time membership, so I got power, wifi, drinks and some shit food for free. I ordered a beer and before I took a sip, I remembered that I was gonna drive later, haha!  So had to switch it to a diet Coke.

Had to wait 4h in Chicago, long time! The flight to Charlottesville was a bit too much turbulence for me. And I had to pee so badly. I just realized that I had to pee after they took on the lights and closed the toilets. Great.

I finally arrived. Got my rental car with a gps. but my car was half tank, so sent them a Dm on Twitter and they fixed it for me, so I could return it with half tank.

Didn't do much that evening, since I arrived so late. Ate some candy and watch TV ^^ Fell asleep after two sips of a beer and a shower.

FRIDAY

Sooo, went to Sinsen today to buy a backpack actually. Don't have any pictures of it, yet. But here are some pictures from the park.

I took Tarzan with me, it's a bit boring to walk in the same park every day, at least for me :P

So after the little walk in the park, we went home. 

Started to watch Mindhunter on Netflix, you should too! And Riverdale season 2 is out, well, only 1 episode.. Oh well.

TVSHOWS

PENNY DREADFUL

This show took me ages to try and watch, I think I've tried four times, but hey, I managed to get hooked in the end. Not my type of show really, but give it a chance or 4 and maybe you'll like it as well! You'll find it on Netflix!

THE MAN IN THE HIGH CASTLE

This show as well, but I think I tried only two times and first time I watched with a buddy of mine, but then I fell asleep. Second time I tried to watch it alone, but didn't like it. Third time, I tried to watch it again with my buddy, and then he fell asleep. But I saw the whole episode. Haha! I can't find it on Netflix, but it's on Amazon Prime. And if you want to watch a movie with someone who isn't in the same city or same country as you, you can try out Rabbit

THE GOOD PLACE

A very easy show to watch. It's garbage, but hey, it's Kristen Bell, need to love it :P It's on Netflix!

OCTOBER

Autumn is here.

22309021_10159485694215374_1306121742249804702_n.jpg

So I'll probably not pack any of my wool sweaters or my wool underwear, haha!

22308685_10159485694225374_7137801684252004740_n.jpg

Shay, a girl I'm gonna meet in US, told me to pack warm clothes, cause at night it had gotten pretty cold and I asked how cold, 18 fucking degrees. Haha! That's summer! Here it's like 5 degrees.

3 WEEKS UNTIL DEPATURE!

GREEN LIGHT

I overslept. 4 hours. Got to the course at 12:55pm, but it actually started at 8.30am. So I just threw myself on a bike and swooooshed down to Nedre Slottsgate, where the course is being held. But I got atleast 3 hours and the lunch wasn't all that, so I didn't miss much. I thought it's gonna be at Grand Hotel, but no, it was at a smaller hotel, haha! Oh well. My mom is gonna be my alarm clock tomorrow, so she's gonna call me a 7.30am. Crossing my fingers that I'll hear her calling.

Now I'm watching a movie called "A cure for wellness", it's alright, not the best movie I've seen, but it's okay. I'm watching through Plex, and I'm connected to two of my friends that has a lot of movies, they downloaded. So I don't have to do that anymore. Trying out Rick & Morty, even though I hate Morty's voice, haha and I love Rick and his weird voice. I'm watching one episode of that show every night before I go to bed.

A great song for this week.

NEW WEEK

The course I'm going to, started today at 8.30 am, thats way too early for me. And it lasts for three days, but hey, it's free food. Free lunch, oh joy! Can't say no to that. 

I was a bit afraid it was gonna be dead boring, but it wasn't that bad. One of the lecturer was a bit over happy, but it went fine. Tomorrow we are gonna start at 8.30 am and eat at some fancy restaurant with two courses, aaaweee, dessert for meee! ^^ I look very forward to that!

On Thursday it's a staff meeting and after that I had actually the day off, but got a task from my boss to close the bar outside, and I can't really say no to more work. I need the money before my vacation! ^^ And I had Friday off, but my boss asked me so nicely if I could work a couple of hours, and I said ofc yes. So I'll probably go to my parents house on Sunday.

hihi.jpg

It's getting cold and all I have is my candles and they only burn for 4 hours, god damnit. Need new ones. Oh well.

MOVIE NIGHT

I got Monday off, so I planned to have a movie night with one of my friends at work, at her place of course. Cause I really don't have a TV, but I actually do have a TV, but I use it for a PC screen. So we ordered some takeaway from Yaya's and managed to go the wrong way, we just walked passed it. Oh well, after a tiny nice walk, we went back to the restaurant, picked up our food and went to the store to buy coffee, so Raluca could survive her mornings this week. ^^ When we got back to her place, we watched two movies, Zootopia and Hotel Transylvania. Two great movies!! Must see!! And you must see Hotel Transylvania 2, that's actually better than the first one!

I got Shakira's song on the brain, ammagad. It's stucked in there. But such a great movie though! ^^ (Zootopia)

So all these 3 movies are on Norwegian Netflix. So no excuses there.

DESTINY 2

Yes, after a long waiting, Destiny 2 is back. Or "back", for us that played the beta. I think 80% of the people I follow on Mixer, were streamin' D2 last night and someone did a 24h stream, jesus. I've played it, it's alright, cause I really not care that much about that game, haha! But ye, it's alright ^^ And I gameshare with a buddy, so every game he has, I get for free and the other way around. I found this commercial on Twitter, had to share it with you ^^

BROWN HAIR

Not new hair, but new color! I had this green color in my hair, and now it's gone. I'll never do that again. Never ever gonna take a cheap color from H&M in my hair. As the hair dresser said, if you got damaged hair, it's gonna last longer. Not gonna get rid of it after 20 washes. I didn't get rid of it after 20 washes.

And I had to cut the hair as well, since I did it myself a few weeks ago. Haha! Now I just need a tan and a vacation. Very soon, I'm gonna be streamin' with another streamer and playing Dark Souls 3 :) 
So it's only 3 days until I got 3 days off :) Woo! Don't have any plans yet, but I hope I'll do something funfunfun.

RANDOM THURSDAY

So, some random pictures from random days. It's Thursday, 7.27am, haven't slept yet, but I will. Played Mafia, again, for like 6 hours. Straight. The graphic card is supposed to arrive at Komplett today, but I'm not so sure. I think I might have to wait a bit longer. But hey, I don't have to pay for it, so I guess it's worth it? ^^

It's busy yesterday at work and it'll be busy today as well, it's gonna rain from 5pm, so I guess everybody wants to sit inside. ^^

SUNNYDAY

So yesterday, Saturday, my dad come by the apartment and brought his TV along with him and he took my big TV instead, so we switched. You'll see the reason why... under the pizza picture.

He took a small trip to Majorstuen to look for some new shoes, come back empty handed. And hungy, so we went down to Bislett "downtown".. Tried to order at Laundromat, but waitress was so rude and so slow, so we went to Store Stå and ordered a pizza. ^^

IMG_3906.JPG

My mac is still alive, so two screens for my mac and one for the xbox. My new TV is on the left ^^

IMG_3907.JPG

Ordered some pancakes from Laundromat through Foodora, and guess who I meet there, the bitchy waitress from yesterday. Well, she's a lot happier today though. Haha! 

HOW'S YOUR SUNDAY?

OH DEAR.

So a week ago, I got a new PC, just a few days ago, my PC was built. Last night, Saturday Night, my PC went mental. In other words, the cooler went crazy. So the cooler was loose for some reason and got loose, sprayed water of my motherboard and graphic card, so now they are broken. So I'm gonna call Komplett tomorrow and explain it, and then I hope they replace the cooler, motherboard and the graphic. Cross your fingers! <3

IMG_3887.JPG

You guys see that long "cord", yea, that one is supposed to be in that tiny hole, where the other one is. But no. My type of bad luck I tell ya. So I'm not gonna go for Corsair again. ^^

IMG_3886.JPG

Otherwise, i'm doing good. It's August already, wow, the time just fly by. So if I get my things replaced, I'll buy tickets for Prague, if not, I'm shitfaced. ^^Then I have to wait.. PC before travels....!

LAST WEDNESDAY

So last Wednesday I drove home to Bærum and then mom, dad and I drove back to Oslo to go out for dinner. We went for some shopping first, well, my dad went shopping. He found some trousers, that later become shorts. Cause he can do stuff like that ^^

So, we went to Eataly to eat dinner, very good pasta there! Should try it! After my dad and I shared a bottle of wine, we went to another place, drank some coffee and some drinks. Didn't got that late, cause I was so tired. Haha, but it was a pretty good night!

I was scheduled to work from 4pm, but when I got there, there were so few people, that I got the day off. Yey, friday! Sine and Andreas had worked the day shift, so I sat down with them and Raluca was waiting to get the day off, for some reason it took a while. But she got the day off as well, we took a couple of beers at Skansen before we headed down to Alberts Bistro.

Raluca

Agnieszka & Olayemi

Sine

Anna

Albert Bistro

It was only Sine, Andreas, Raluca and I that went down to the harbour, the other ones had to work! Raluca and I ordered burgers, mine was very tasteless, but I had a great time, so I forgot to complain haha! And medium burger, doesn't mean red inside of it.

CHOCOLATE

After main course, we shared a dessert, oh my, I took like one bite and I already felt that my stomach was doing some shady business down there, so I stopped eating. ^^ After we'd paid, Raluca drove me home, Sine went home with the bus and Andreas went out out, partey. 

A suuuuper nice evening! Well, it started to rain, but luckily we found a cozy place outside.

STAVERN

Stavern in pictures. i was visiting a buddy of mine (the black and white picture down there), who works and lives down there. So Monday was about eating, drinking and eating. Tuesday was exploring. And Wednesday was tanning and driving home. :)
