I'm watching Paris Je t'aime. I love that movie. Not really because of the movie, but because of the memories I have of watching it for the first time. It's a dark basement, a cramped couch, ice-cream and marshmallow fluff and my three best guy friends at the time. It was a good time in my life. I was sick, and these three was the only ones who actually took time to spend some time with me. And even though we don't talk any more, I will forever love them for being my friends then. I do know that it's hard to be friends with someone who's sick. But they didn't forget me and they didn't mind that all I had the energy to do was to watch movies, because they were/ are pretentious movie hipsters, so that was their favorite thing to do anyway. So we watched movie after movie in a dark basement. And it was wonderful. And that's why I'll always love Paris Je t'aime. Because it's such a pretentious movie, that only annoying douches pretends to like.

But to be honest. Sometimes I'm a pretentious douche. So what the hell. My favorite part is the one with Rufus Sewell at Oscar Wilde's grave.

(I'm also uploading songs to share with you all later. All of my favorite songs this year. It probably won't be up until later or tomorrow. But it'll come.)

Also. Happy new year.

I have rearranged my room. Everything that isn't nailed down, has been moved around. I'm really pleased. This is how I deal with change in my life. Last time I had boy trouble, I deleted all the messages on my phone. This time, when we ended it for real, I rearranged my room! It's seriously cheering me up, every time I walk into my room. And that's good, cause life is hard right now, what with school being really hard to handle.

I'm really hating the new look of Facebook. Apropos nothing.

I have a new favourite show, and it's really surprising, because it's kinda soapish and full of drama, but it's so good! It makes me feel happy and good. Brothers and Sisters, I just adore their family dynamic! Family drama is my favourite, because the way they act together and around each other is terribly interesting. Kevin Walker is also the most fabulous guy on TV! He's snarky, well dressed, and simply awesome. If he can just get together with Scotty for real soon, I'd be really happy. (I'm just in the middle of season 2, but I've seen some of season 5 too, so I know!)

Also, aren't we all excited for the Narnia Big Bang!?? I really want to do it, but I don't have an idea, so if I don't have a plot, then I can't. But I will sign up as an artist! Check out [livejournal.com profile] narniaexchange for all the info.

Also, also: If I was English I would totally name my baby Stormageddon.

So I discovered how I can record myself on my Mac and I, of course, had to immediately try some of those audio memes out. So here's two of them:

The first one is taken from [livejournal.com profile] metonomia:

IF YOU CAN CORRECTLY PRONOUNCE EVERY WORD IN THIS POEM, YOU WILL BE SPEAKING ENGLISH BETTER THAN 90% OF THE NATIVE ENGLISH SPEAKERS IN THE WORLD. AFTER TRYING THE VERSES, A FRENCHMAN SAID HE’D PREFER SIX MONTHS OF HARD LABOUR TO READING SIX LINES ALOUD. TRY THEM YOURSELF.

I think I should get some free passes since I am not English and I haven't even heard of some of these words! Which you will clearly hear, since I will say some words several times and say them with a question mark. Let me know how I did.

Dearest creature in creation... )

Meme the second: That accent meme thingy taken from [livejournal.com profile] katakokk

a) your name and/or username
b) where you're from
c) the following words:
Aunt, Roof, Route, Wash, Oil, Theater, Iron, Salmon, Caramel, Fire, Water, Sure, Data, Ruin, Crayon, Toilet, New Orleans, Pecan, Both, Again, Probably, Spitting Image, Alabama, Lawyer, Coupon, Mayonnaise, Syrup, Pajamas, Caught, Orange, Coffee, direction, naturally, aluminium and herbs

d) randomness:
- what is it called when you throw toilet paper on a house?
- what is the bubbly carbonated drink called?
- what do you call gym shoes?
- what do you say to address a group of people?
- what do you call the kind of spider that has an oval-shaped body and extremely long legs?
- what do you call your grandparents?
- what do you call the wheeled contraption in which you carry groceries at the supermarket?
- what do you call it when rain falls while the sun is shining?
- what is the thing you change the TV channel with?

Hey you guys. I've been silent for a while, but that's just because I haven't felt like posting. Stuff has happened, but not enough for me to manage to strength to post about it. I'm fine, btw. Just my family has been wrecked by a stomach virus, so I've basically not eaten for a week. And just when the nausea let go some what I get this horrible cough and my body is aching! Thank god, I've finished all my Christmas shopping! Cause I can't lift a finger right now.

Tomorrow I'm going to watch the ballet the Nutcracker. I haven't seen it since I was ten or something, and I'm hoping I won't be too sick to enjoy it.

I sent out my Christmas letters on Friday and I hope they will all reach you in time for Christmas. I know I was a bit late this year, but I really hope the post will come through.

I celebrated my birthday on Saturday. It was a absolute blast and I haven't laughed that much in ages. There was a lot of vodka and playing of "I never", and I can safely say that I've never been that hung over in my LIFE! (Which really doesn't say much, cause I've never really been hung over before.) The family party on Sunday was horrible. Horrible! I tell you!

So yeah, that's my life right now. I'm twenty and happy, and so very sick. Thank you to everybody who wished me a happy birthday, you are all lovely! &hearts

Awesome presents I got for my birthday )

On a more personal note: I'm spending way too much time on Facebook and in the last month I've sent over a hundred texts. That's... so not normal. I blame my big giant crush. The logical part of my brain is telling my how ridiculous and stupid I'm acting, but the other part is giggling and saying "But he might show up any minute! And we want to talk to him!" I'm an idiot.

Fandom wise:

I'm so bitter that I have to avoid all Narnia talk. The movie doesn't come out until December 25th here. Yeah, what kind of date is that, anyway?? Who goes to the movies on the first day of Christmas? But on second or third day I'm dragging my family to go watch it.

The few things I've heard isn't all that good, but I'm have an open mind, and I care more about the developing of the characters than I do the story or plot. So really, I don't care if they've changed the whole story as long as Edmund is Edmund and Lucy is Lucy and Eustace is awesome.

People seems to be having fun in the 3 sentence ficathon, which is great! It didn't turn out to be as fun as I'd expected it to be for me, but who cares about that. I'm just not feeling the writing vibes lately. Which is a shame cause I really want to write! But I can't.

I'm also blissfully high on cough syrup right now. I've finally stopped coughing!

A curious fact about me:

After I got my shiny mac, I'm obsessively cleaning it all the time. I have a special piece of cloth for it and everything. It's just that smudges and dirt really shows on the Mac and I can't handle it being there. So I clean it, every day or so. Yeah...

Another fact:

I'm not very good at being mean. I'm a yes-person. If you ask me for something and it's within my power to help you, give you it, make it so, I will do it.

Which is why I'll probably need someone to co-mod the [livejournal.com profile] narniaexchange with me next year, because I'm incapable of saying no.

One last fact:

I get very easily hooked on pain-killers. Which is why someone should take away my Pinex.

I'm a tiny bit sad right now.

I thought I might update you on my life, since I do swear I have done other things than discover Inception. I promise.

School started back up again a week ago. If I continue the way I've started then this year is going to be so awesome. I love, love, love all my classes. I have modern history (From the French Revolution until today. I can't wait for us to reach WWII!), Religion and Ethics, History and Philosophy (I think this will be my hardest class this year. Still fun, but it's hard to think the way my teacher wants me to think.), Social English, English Literature and Culture (I OWN THIS CLASS ALREADY! Books! Short-stories! Poetry! Theatre! SO MUCH LOVE!) and Norwegian (BLAH! It's okay, but not very fun.)

On Monday I'm going to start a beginners course on archery. I'm very excited. It's ages (six years actually) since I last did any sports. I hope this is something I can do. Yesterday I went to my first choir practice with TenSing. Our church's youth choir. It's very informal, but lots of fun!

I'm thinking of auditioning for our school's revue. I loved acting when in elementary school and think this would be really fun. Worst case scenario is that I don't get picked. No harm in trying, right?

I'm also considering joining the yearbook committee... Not sure yet, though.

As you might have guessed, I've decided that this year I'm going to join things, do things and GET A LIFE!
caramelsilver: (Misc: Carro)
Maybe it's late night madness, and I'll revert back to my lazy self tomorrow morning (let's be honest) midday, but I've decided to pull myself together. I have made some goals, and by god, I will reach them.

I have planned my life!

Immediate goals:

- Work out this summer.
- Bicycle while at our cabin.
- Eat all right.
- Read the books I need to read before school starts.

Long time goals:

- Get good enough grades to get into my university of choice.
- Join the military.
- Go to university and study English Literature.

My exam went nothing as I expected it too, but I came out mostly unscathed! I didn't need my manuscript at all, but I forgot to mention a lot, but it went pretty well. They said that I explained things very well, and my English was good. I got a 5. Second best grade. Which I'm very happy about!

Thank you everyone who answered my questions! It helped me a lot. You are all so very awesome. &hearts

I cut my hair today!! It's so so awesome and I'm so pleased.

It was so weird to see all that hair on the floor. That used to be attached to my head!

In the last year I have gotten a lot of new friends. And I realized that all my new shiny friends don't really know some (one) important stuff (thing) about me, because we became friends after it ended. Unless you did some lurking, then you won't get my references to my previous life.

Here's the thing: When I was fourteen I got sick. I had something called M.E or CFS= Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. It resulted in me being tired all the time, my muscles ached, my head was hurting all the fucking time and I could do absolutely nothing. This lasted for four years. For four years I didn't go to school, I almost didn't see my friends, and I did nothing of the things usual teenagers do.

All I did was sleep, eat, watch tv, read books and surf the internet. That's it.

When I discovered fanfiction in 2005, I had been sick for almost a year and it was a lifesaver. I cannot tell you how much fanfiction and fandom has meant to me the last five years. It cheered me up when nothing else did, it gave me something to do that didn't completely exhaust me. I could lie in my bed and still have fun! After a year of reading fanfiction, I started to write my own. When I joined LJ it was the most amazing thing ever. I got new friends who liked me for me, and didn't care that I was sick, because it wasn't an issue when it came to internet friendships. They encouraged me and made me laugh. This was at a time where I had no social life at all in RL. I had lost all my friends because I was no fun to be around. Only my best friend and a few amazing boys bothered to spend time with me. (Ironically I lost touch with the boys after I got well again!)

Then in 2008, I got well again. It happened so quickly, I did a course that completely cured me. And I started school again, I suddenly became fun again. If you go through the archives on my journal you can see a huge difference in my posts. They actually became fun to read. And I got a ton of new friends!

So now you know what I'm talking about when I say things like: “Trust me, I know being sick sucks.” or “When I was sick I...” or “WE DO NOT TALK ABOUT 2005!” This is also the reason why I'm still at school. Had I been a normal kid I should be travelling around the world, or be in the military or just studying at UNI. But I'm still at school, and I will sadly be for two more years.

Ask any questions you may have. I will gladly answer them=)

I promised you all that I would show you my room when it was finished... and that's like six months ago or something. But! I'm doing it now! Cause it's all clean and shit because the cleaning lady just left.

Look at my beautiful room! )

I got a new pair of glasses today! I love them so much. They make me look fierce. The strength is also higher than the pair I bought last year. Apparently my eyesight have gotten worse. Now I have -2.0 on my left eye and -1.25 on my right. So, yeah without glasses I only see blurry figures. Here's a pic of my new awesome glasses:

* I am seriously struggling. I am like an emotional jojo: one day everything looks bright and I'm determined to turn my life around, and the next day I can barely get myself out of bed. What the fuck is wrong with me?

* In much cheerier news: [livejournal.com profile] grim_lupine wrote the most awesome Edlyn (girl!Edmund) ficlet for me. And it's awesome and you should go read it: There are things of which they do not speak.


* A random thought: I saw Sweeney Todd again and am I the only one who watches that movie and think: "Anthony and Johanna will never last!"? Because dude! She's a girl who just wanted to get away from her perverted guardian and he fell in love with a girl in a window! There's no fucking way that relationship is going to work!

* I swear a lot. Like... pretty bad actually. I mostly only swear in english, which makes it not so bad to the people around me... but lately I'm actually saying: Motherfuckingcocksuckingpieceofshit out loud. I used to only say it loudly in my head, but now I actually say it out loud and I've realised that that is not actually a good thing... Yeah, I am so messed up and I can't seem to be able to do anything about it! GAAAHHH!

* Also: I think I am going to join the military when I'm done with school. I think it would be good for me. Get some discipline, follow orders, get in shape, get to know new people from around the country... Yeah, I think I'd like that.
caramelsilver: (Mock the Week: Frankie Quote.)
It's typical isn't it. The one day I could really need some distraction is the day the internet and my flist is fucking silent. No action what so ever, no one posting any new prompts to the Three Sentence Fic-a-thon either. I just... ahhh! Today I did not need to be alone with my thoughts, because my thoughts makes my stomach turn and just... I don't really want to talk about it. I don't think it's something that should be shared on the internet, and I'm not even sure if it's interesting to anyone but me... but lets just say that it has something to do with a boy and I just DON'T NEED TO BE ALONE WITH MY THOUGHTS!!

Please just come talk to me! Anything that can distract me!
caramelsilver: (books)
The greatest thing I've ever learned is how to read. I love it. I'm a reader at heart. I have no idea how many hours of my life I'm going to spend reading, but it will probably be a lot. On top of that I'm a book buyer. I love owning them, and putting them in my book shelf and re-read them later, and thus spend a lot of money on buying new books.  Therefore I've started thinking of what makes me want to buy a book? Because I can spend hours, and I mean this, HOURS! in a bookshop. Either I'll end up with a stack of books or none at all. What makes a book desirable to buy? Since I won't be able to know if the story itself if good, I have to go by other factors:

1) The font has to be pretty.  ~Since it's the first thing I see. I don't see the title first, but the font, on the spine of the book. Personally, I'm very fond of the swirly kind.

2) The title has to be good. It's need to be catchy and get my imagination going. ~
It has to be nice, make you imagine a wonderful tale (even if it doesn't fulfill its promise.) And written in a pretty font it definitively makes me want to pick it up.

3) The cover has to be beautiful
~You want to know why Twilight is so popular? The cover is beautiful! It makes people want to know what's inside. You have no idea how important this is to me. I can't make myself buy a dull and boring looking book unless it has been recced by someone I trust have a good taste in books. Take "Catcher in the Rye". I have heard what a wonderful modern classic it is, but I haven't read it yet, because every time I'm at the bookshop another book over-shines it. It has the dullest cover I've ever seen and it just doesn't compel me to pick it up and buy it.  So: The cover has to dazzle me.

4) The blurb on the back has to explain the book in a great way ~ I know that you can't buy a book because it's pretty. The story has to be good. So the explanation on the back has to summarize the story in a quick, compelling and non-lengthy manner. What I hate the most is when there is no blurb but only reviews and praise. I want to know what the book's about NOT what some celebrity thought about it.

So to summarize: The font has to be eye-catching, the title has to be snazzy, the cover has to be pretty and the blurb needs to explain the book in a nice and quick way.  Off course, not everything always match. The title might be awesome while the font/cover/blurb [Rotate] might suck.

What about you? What do you look for when buying a new book?

Meme taken from [livejournal.com profile] bedlamsbard

1) When I was four I danced ballet. I quit when I was six. I discovered that dancing really wasn't my thing. If you see me dance now you'll see that that's still the case.

2) I was an active ski racer from I was eight to fifteen. I had to quit because I got sick.

3) I hate peas. They are disgusting.

4) If I had been a boy I would've been named Tobias. That's now my brother's name. (Tobias, if he had been a girl, would've been named Pernille.)

5) My daughter will be named Constance. If it'll be her first name or second depends on how much my future husband hates it.

6) When I finish school in three years I'm going to move to London. I'm so sick and tired of Norway.

7) I've never been kissed.

8) I love washing my hands when they're really dirty, just to see the soap turn grey.

9) I think I want to be a teacher when I grow up. I know that I want to study english literature though.

10) I hate it when the sun comes out after it rains. To see the sun shine on the wet pavement just rubs me the wrong way.

( [livejournal.com profile] vagabond_pixie you need to do this one! )

A meme from [livejournal.com profile] dieloreley

1. Leave me a casual comment of no particular significance, like a lyric to your current favorite song, your favorite kind of sandwich, or maybe your favorite game. Any remark, meaningless or not.
2. I will respond by asking you five personal questions so I can get to know you better.
3. Update your LJ with the answers to the questions.
4. Include this explanation and offer to ask someone else in your own post.
5. When others respond with a desultory comment, you will ask them five questions




1. When will you graduate and what's your favourite subject? Why?

If I wasn't sick I would graduate in 2009. But since I am sick and I'm taking year 11 for the second time, I have no idea when I'll finish school.

My favorite subject is english. 1) Because I'm quite good at it, and I like to impress my teacher. 2) Since I spend so much of my time reading fanfiction my english can't do nothing but improve. I love reading books and discuss it after wards with my teacher in english. I'm going to take advanced english next year.

2. What's your guilty comfort food?

I had to think really hard about this question, because I eat my food with out much guilt no matter what it is. But I think my guilty comfort food must be chocolate cake. The kind that has five layers and costs me a small fortune to buy just one piece. I always feel guilty after wards, but I just love it too much to stop buying it when ever I am in that particular store that sells them.

3. What type of music do you like?

I could of said that I listen to anything really, but that would be boring and not what you were after. But it is true, my ipod is full of different kind of music. But if we were to count then I think that the majority of the songs are musicals. I love musical music, showtunes. The songs that have a catchy beat and good lyrics. No matter how bad my singing voice is, I love to sing along.

4. You. Desert Beautiful island. 5 objects. What are they?

My first instinct is to say five books. I really can't live without literature. But then I'm quite depended of my ipod. Can I cheat and say a computer with internet access? Probably not. Okay here goes:

1. My ipod
2. Pride and prejudice - Jane Austen
3. Notebook and pen (so I can draw and write)
4. Chronicles of Narnia- CS Lewis. (Like I could only bring one book? I have compulsion thing were I have to re-read them every year.)
5. Floating mattress. (I can't stand sand, the thought of sleeping on it icks me on so many levels.)

I am assuming that there are water and food nearby. (obviously you can't deduce that from my list)

5. Favourite colour?

At the moment it's green. Even though I don't have a single piece of green clothing. I also love orange. Which I look fabulous in, brings out the blue in my already blue eyes=P


SO, if you read through all that, go you. If you want be to give you five questions, drop me a line and I'll be more than happy to.
caramelsilver: (squishy)
Sunday went great! Even though I hadn't slept much the previous night my body knew that it was important that I was in good shape. So I didn't have any headaches and I were charming and talkative. I am very good at talking about nothing with old aunts I only see now and then, and I have no problem with entertaining my younger cousins either.

It's like I turned into a different girl, that girl I would've been, the girl who is healthy and happy, the girl who is sociable and talkative, the girl who can make people laugh and that girl who doesn't see a pale and sad version of her self when she looks in the mirror. Enough of self pitty.

My speech went great! Everybody laughed and were impressed and since that was the whole purpose of the speech I'm very happy!
