What Does the Turtle Say?

One time, I heard a sound. A purring sound. I looked around and I found no cat. My ex and I never had one but we had a turtle. A red-eared slide turtle. It was my aunt who gave that turtle to me four years ago. Since no one and nothing was there I looked at it and I thought that I was just hearing stuff but then suddenly the turtle meowed again! The meow from the turtle is a soft meow. I was of course surprised and so I took my cellphone out of my pocket and turned the video recorder on and waited for the turtle to meow again. The turtle was staring at me and it looked like he was waiting for me to give him food.

I sat on the floor with my camera prepared to catch the extra ordinary moment of my turtle. The turtle gave me that Wtf are you doing mommy look. But it did not meow again nor made any sound so I got a bit upset because I have not taken any proof that the turtle meowed. However it did not stop me from telling my mom and my ex about it. My ex did not believe me of course (Who would believe when someone tells you that a turtle says meow? ).

Then I thought, maybe I was just exhausted and tired from work so I just told myself that I was just hearing things and my mind was just playing tricks on me.

But then, one day my ex came to me and said, “The turtle meowed.”. And I asked him if he was serious and he said he was so I got happy because it only means that I was not hearing things. I am not insane after all. 🙂

Swan Lake

Last weekend we were at my friend’s wedding and since the reception is a bit far from where I live, we’ve decided to rent a hotel room in Sandnes for one night. We could have also taken the cab home but the taxi fare would cost the same as the hotel room rate.

Anyway, the following day I showed my bf Sandnes Brygge since he had never been there before. From there we found a big group of swans.

This is not a lake but it is a small river leading to the sea. However upon seeing this, I couldn’t stop playing Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake in my head.

If I’m not mistaken, there were 30 swans in total. But only 26 are in the water. The remaining 4 are on the land.

Sweets Can Kill You

There is a huge gap between living in the 1990s and living in the 2000s. From music to fashion, you name it. Also, people’s perception of beauty has changed drastically and so the rise of the health experts as well is dramatic.

Life before was not that complicated because people did not give a shit about their looks and their food intake. People were not paranoid. Even though there are health/fashion/food magazine, the articles were not exagerrated. Nowadays people can not eat without asking how much calories the food has. Kids can not even enjoy a small piece of chocolate because their parents are worried that sugar makes them hyper and whiny.

Today I had an argument with someone about disciplining kids. Funny though because neither of us do not have kids! Anyway, according to him kids should only get chocolates/candies on Saturdays because kids are more active before than today.

Yes it is true that children before are more active than the children of today, but I think this argument is just an excuse to avoid exerting more effort into disciplining the kids, in my opinion. I do not think that giving them a small amount of candy on a Monday would make them spoiled.

Instead of counting calories, can’t we just go out and play? Eat when we get hungry. Drink when we get thirsty. Indulge in sweets (in moderation) if we wanted too?

Can’t we simply just enjoy life?

Goodbye 2013 and Hello 2014

Hi and a happy new year to everyone! I hope everyone had a peace of mind and a wonderful celebration during Christmas and new year. If you are going to ask me, it was really cosy and fun. I spent Christmas at my parents’ and the New Year at my bf’s.

Anyway, “Out with the bad, in with the good” is one of my favorite new year mottos. For me, it tells us to let go of the negative things from the previous years and to welcome the good ones and improve the good things we already have as the brand new year takes over. However, it does not mean that we should forget everything bad that happened, but it should serve as a lesson and a guide for our future decisions in life. I believe that no one can run away from the past, because it is a part of us. The best way to cope with your past is to accept it and be realistic. In that way, it would be easier to move on and set new goals.

2013 has been both a bitch and a blessing to me. A bitch because it brought me troubles, uncertainties, loneliness and anxiety. A blessing because it has thought me a lot of things, got a chance to meet new friends and it has given me back my confidence. And because of that, I am well equipped now to face the challenges of 2014 and most of all I’m looking forward to season 4 of Game of Thrones!!! 🙂

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
Or! 

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)!
