wednesday

Happy Wednesday! I hop you are having a great week so far!

Today was the second day of regular “work” days. (Monday was 2nd easter day, or whatever it is called) I feel very productive so far, and my stress level is surprisingly low. My exams starts in a few weeks, and even though I am very nervous, I’m ok with having them. I feel like I have surpassed the level of being stressed – I’m just calm all the time after years of stress!

Just kidding. I’m stilling stressing a little, but I’m serious when I say I’m surprised about my stress level.

I think one of the things that makes me ok with the fact that my exams are soon, is that I’m just excited for a few things I’m doing when they are over!

You see, whenever I have exams I have decided to award myself something. The last few times it’s been books, but this year it’s something else too! (I’m still planning on rewarding myself with some books, though! Don’t you worry!) I mentioned a museum I wanted to go to in the last blog post (which got the highest likes I have ever gotten – so thanks!) and I have decided that I’m going to go to that museum after I have finished my last exam!

My parents laughed a little at me when I told them my plan. hehehe But who cares? I’m a history geek, so why wouldn’t I reward myself with a museum trip when that’s something I want?

Anyway, that’s really all I wanted to say. There is nothing exciting happening right now. I was at a birthday party yesterday to my cousin and my cousin’s child. Other than that nothing really exciting is happening!

Thank you for reading!

What have you done this week?

Norwegian Museum of Technology

A few days ago me and my family decided to take a trip to Oslo, and specifically the Norwegian museum of Science and Technology, or as it is called in Norwegian; Teknisk Museum.

It’s so much longer in English!!

It’s easter break here in Norway, and we felt like we had to do something this break, other than just sitting at home doing nothing exciting. This was my second time to the museum, but it wasn’t really a problem because it’s been years since I was there the last time. A lot of it had changed – at least as far as I can remember.

All though I was excited about this museum, I had another museum I wanted to go to. Both for pleasure and for work. I suppose. If you didn’t know, I like to write fiction. And since last year I have been working on a story, and going to that museum would be a sort of research for that story. #nospoilers BUT I think I’m going to reward myself a trip to that museum when I have finished all of my exams!

Anyway:

thumbnail_IMG_7799One thing that was both funny and «eye-opening» (if I can call it that), was that the first phone my older sister had, and possibly myself too, was in one of these boxes! Like, we are not that old! Our things shouldn’t be in a museum yet!

thumbnail_IMG_78031I’m a total history geek, and even though I’m not interested in how a paper machine works today, I find it very interesting to see how it worked back in the days!2You can’t really see it it this photo, but the airplane (the wing is in the left of the picture) had an opening underneath and in the back so you could see inside. It was cool, but it smelled old, hehe.345The first tram in Oslo/Norway!6This is the last photo I took, and it was of hundres of photos from the second world war, or around that time. I didn’t have time to look at ALL the pictures and read ALL the text in this part of the museum, but from what I gathered it was about forced labour of people in Norway during the war. Apparently 100 000 of thousands were forced, and nearly 20 000 people died…

What a positive note to end the post…. Obviously sarcasm.

Have you ever been to this museum? What’s your favourite type of museum?!

Thank you for taking time out of your day to read my blog! :D

Old Church Ruins

It’s been a week and a few days since I wrote last. I just haven’t had a lot to write about. I have been focusing on school. Plus, I haven’t really had anything to write.

Anyway, on Sunday, my friend Sandra and I drove to an old church that is left in ruins. I have wanted to go there for a while, but wanted to wait till either I or Sandra could drive. Which has been for a while now, but I guess I’ve just forgotten.

We didn’t end up leaving before four because Sandra had something to do, but it was fine really since the sun doesn’t go down before closer to five. It took us thirty minutes to drive, plus five minutes where we didn’t know if we were on the right road. It was a dirt road and I was a little nervous because there was a steep hill so I was a little scared to drive down it on our way back. img_0454img_0455img_0457img_0458img_0460

Thank you for reading! Do you enjoy looking at old buildings?

Oslo Visit

Hello! Happy Friday!

Today my mum, myself and my two sisters decided we wanted to do something since it’s the “last” day of autumn break. I voted for a world war 2 resistance museum in Oslo, but no one else wanted to do that so we ended up deciding to go to Frognerparken in Oslo. It’s a huge park in Oslo with a bridge full of statues.

Here are some of the statues. I didn’t take a picture of all of them because that would just be boring, but I took pictures of some.

I also loved the weather. It wasn’t too warm or too cold so I wore a thin jacket and a huge scarf and I loved it!

SAMSUNG CSC

Out of focus, of course. This is probably the most well known one. It’s called “Sinnataggen” which is literally just angry boy. It has been stolen a few times so that’s apparently why it’s so “famous”.

This scarf is probably my favourite. It’s huge and comftorable. I bought it from Primark a few years back.

SAMSUNG CSC

This is massive and surrounded by many statues around it again!

We had brought some cookies and crisps and something to drink and sat down on one of the benches in the park.

I just had to take pictures of some of the roses even though they are starting to die..

You can literally see that it was windy hahaha

I literally cannot tell you how many times I have taken pictures from this park ahaha

Have you ever been in Frognerparken?

 

Sunday Walk With Family (VIDEO)

Hello, and happy Monday!

Yesterday me and some family went on a little walk to this place in a forest where a plane had crashed during world war 2. I had been there before with my school (long time ago though) but I had never actually seen the plane wreckage because we walked really slow so we had to turn and go back before we arrived at the place where the wreckage was… It was very muddy yesterday, but also very beautiful!

It would make me happy if you could take two minutes to watch this :) And subscribe and like hahah

Bye!

Day Trip To Oslo

Hello!

Yesterday me and my friend Sandra decided to head into Oslo, mostly so we could catch some Pokemon’s and I had to go poke stops because I have been without pokeballs for a week now and it has been hard… Just joking!

It was a very nice day, not too hot and not too cold. We took the train to nationalteateret and walked around the “top” of Karl Johans street to take the poke stops there. After that we took the tram (?) to Frognerparken. We didn’t walk around the park right away because we were starting to become hungry so we decided to go and buy some food to bring back to the park and eat there.

It was a very nice day!

This guy , Gunnar Sønsteby, was a part of the Norwegian resistance during world war two, and you may know how much I love world war two, and especially resistance during the second world war!

I don’t really know who this guy is haha

As I just wrote; we went and bought some lunch. We went the “healthy” way with a salad, and fruit on the side… We also bought some crisps and some oreos and soda, but hey, who cares?!
