An Anonymous Sender

After my exam yesterday, I got 4 mms from some Anonym (anonymous in Norwegian). So I checked the mms’ one by one and I found nothing! Except for the last one. It has a very low “shhh” sound (ikr! creepy!). So I  checked my contact list to see if I have named one of my friends/aquiantances “Anonym” (because sometimes I write their nicks or just some silly names/words instead of their names). I found nothing. So I checked the sender’s info and I found nothing there either. No numbers, no nothing! I started to wonder if it was my ex. I asked him but it’s not him. 
So who could it be? 

Theory number 1:
The possible candidates are 
ghosts – started haunting me because they’re bored!
secret admirer/stalker – got no guts/the balls to tell me that he likes me
enemies- just for the sake of ruining my day
retards- found out that sending mms anonymously is a hobby

Theory number 2:
A glitch. Well most likely to happen. But still creepy.
What is the meaning of all these? 😛

Whoever/whatever it is, I hope that it won’t happen again because it’s really annoying. 

It’s Just Me

Yesterday was the saddest (dramatic) moment of my life. I was crying nonstop for 3 ****ing hours! But nothing bad happened, really. It’s just that my emotions were out of controll these past few days. 4 days ago, I was very happy. Then after that I was angry and the day after that again, I was excited and now I’m normal again. It’s just annoying especially the sad part because tears kept flowing and I really hate it because I always look like a small girl being mobbed at school and I hate to look like a victim! It’s not sexy! 

I’ve also tried to focus my attention to other things to ease my mood swings, like for instance, working out, jogging, playing games and reading. However, once I’m finish with them, the bad mood comes in and it’s back to square one, which is really energy consuming thus making me sick. 
Yes I know, it’s just hormones. But wth! It’s giving me problems that doesn’t even exist (speaking of ghost problems)! 

A Taste of Summer in May

So what happens when the sun shine in Stavanger?

Oh yes, we grill, play under the sun, and sunbathe!



Tasty chicken bbq and grilled corn by my friend.
Chaos? Nah, it’s just sunny in Stavanger.  At Vaulen.
My friend Brendan trying to look like he’s drowning but for me he looks like as if he’s calming down the water .
Small beach. Too bad the water’s too cold for me.
Testing the water. It’s ice cold!!!
Picnic with friends.
The swan was provoked by the dog, so it’s really angry and was on its offence mode. The little dog ‘s  not intimidated though.
A party boat. It has big speakers on board and a group of teenagers on it.

Norwegians are hungry for the heat because of the long winter. We seldom get a very nice weather (warm and sunny) here, so when the sun comes out, everybody gets gaga. Grateful for the very nice summer weather during the weekend.
The temperature’s around 26 C and it’s really warm under the sun.

My Dumbbell Set

I bought a set of dumbbells yesterday because I have decided to take my workout into the next level. Also, I am cutting down my monthly expenses by almost 11 percent, so yes I had to plan and to prioritize. Sadly my long term plans are a bit demanding, so I definitely have to sacrifice something (like impulsive shopping and trips) and work harder in order to achieve my goals thus some things and habits would have to go. 😦
Anyway, the dumbbells cost 299nok. It is really affordable. But the original plan was to buy a kettlebell, but an 8 kilo kettlebell costs more than this set of dumbbells and aside from that it is impractical because the weight can not be adjusted. 


And since I am restless most of the time, having a pair of dumbbells at home helps me to calm down and reduce uneasiness. 

Keeping a Healthy Mind and Body

Keeping a healthy mind and a healthy body is not that easy as it sounds. Sometimes we tend to forget that these two goes hand in hand or maybe some of us does not know what a healthy mind and a healthy body is.
For me, a healthy mind is a worry free mind, a mind with happy thoughts and a mind full of dreams. While a healthy body is a body free from sickness, free from fatigue and a healthy body is working body.
But how do we achieve it when we are exposed to the harshness of our environment?
  •  It should always start with yourself. Know what you really want in your life. Contemplate. What are your goals? Are you contented with your lifestyle now? If not, are you willing to move on and do something with it? Decide.
  • As much as possible keep the negative people out of your life. Do not assosiate yourself with them because negative vibes will only give you worries and headaches. They are only a waste of time and energy. So ignore them and focus on yourself and the people who bring out the best in you.
  • Plan. There is nothing wrong with being spontaneous but sometimes planning is the best way to effectively achieve our goals. For instance, planning when to go to the gym and planning what to eat this week and the coming week.
  • Make time for exercise, whether at home, outside or at the gym. Exercise is good for the health. Do not make the “I’m tired” excuse. What is 45 minutes of walking everyday (just an example)? Remember, we all get tired and if you are always tired then you might want to have it checked with your doctor. Tiredness is sometimes our defence mechanism against the fear of getting tired or in other word, laziness.
  • Eat healthy but it does not mean that you have to cut your favorite fastfood or chocolates but have a balanced diet. Too much of something is bad for you. Remember that you are what you eat. So what you put in your body will have an effect on you later.
  • Do not forget to rest/sleep. Remember, our body needs to regenerate after a long day of working, studying and working out. Failing to do so would weaken your immune system thus making you vulnerable to sickness.
  • Lastly, do not forget to have fun.


I always eat healthy on a daily basis, but I also love to eat sweets and food rich in carbohydrates.


I always keep in mind that being fit is more important than looking sexy. When you’re fit and healthy, the rest follows.


I always take water with me everywhere I go or run 🙂

Stick to the Topic

Sometimes, the reason why some people don’t get the grade they wanted in an exam is because of their inability to answer the exam questions. It doesn’t mean that they didn’t review and I’m not saying that they don’t know anything either. It’s just that their answers to the problems are getting out of the context. I mean that they write a hundred of thousand of words (even though it is not related to the topic) just to show the teachers/professors that they really know what they have been writing in their papers. And it’s really funny how in the end these people end up, angry. The instructions are clear, answer short and stick to the topic.
