i sometimes feel like i've lost the ability to express myself properly with words. i've often wanted to write a proper blog post about everything and nothing, but when i sit with the blank space before me and my fingers on the keyboard, i can't find anything to write. but i'll try now, one sentence at a time.
i haven't been active much with blogging or photography lately. university came and stole all my time and left me standing without motivation and inspiration. or when i do get bursts of inspiration, i can't do anything about it because i have so much work i have to do. they say the first year is the hardest, and that it will get better, so i hope i survive that long. some days i think molecular biology is the perfect subject to me, other times not.
i feel this post is starting to sound a bit depressing, which wasn't the purpose. sure university is hard, but i get to feel smart sometimes! like explaining the life cycle of angiosperms and gymnosperms, and try to learn to pronounce "actinopterygii" and "pertomyzontida", and if youre curious about how fungus reproduces sexually, i'm the person to ask! oh joy. can't wait for exams to be over, then i'll have almost a month of winter vacation.
oh! i'm travelling to iceland after new years. my mom is going to a conference there and taking me with her. i'm really excited. it'll be dark and cold but it's still iceland.
oslo is a fine city. every day i look out the window and it lookes different each time. my view has replaced tv. i wonder when the first snow will fall. its funny to me that there was a snowstorm in new england weeks before it started snowing in tromsø.
first frosty morning
i feel like this post isn't really saying anything, so if you have read this and now hate me for wasting your time, i'm sorry. if you read this and understood, thank you.
oh and something "hilarious": i spilled tea on my mac so now the "=/zero" and the "@"-button doesnt work. i had to google "equal sign" and "at sign" and copy paste them in here...
oh and another "funny" thing: i bought an iphone and after a few days it turned out something was wrong with the screen. so now i have to wait about 1-2 weeks for them to check it, before i either get the same phone back or a replacement. maybe it's all a sign, that i should either a) not touch apple products, or b) stick with the phone i've had for 7 years for yet another 7 years.
