How long has it been since I last even opened an LJ tab?
I'm too afraid to even check
but I thought it was time I wrote a little life update again
a lot of stuff has actually been happening
because there is so much, I'll just list it randomly, in random order
also, T thing likes it when I mention her...
I named my car Paprika. T think calls me a spoiled brat. I agree.
I bought a hamster, and named it Syphilis Unicorn. But I don't really stick to the name and call it everything that comes to my mind at the given time. So basically Syphilis Unicorn Phoenix Melena Canvas-Bag Pet-Rock. This amuses T thing. Syphilis likes dried cranberries and sunflower seeds.
Tári and Rin are still in Bergen and I miss them. But at least I've got T thing
I'm starting to really love my job. I'm now actually a qualified horseback instructor after taking a seminar a couple of weeks ago. People are still annoying, but I think I've got the hang of it by now. I get 130 NOK per hour, which is 15 more than I got at the amusement park last summer. But on the other hand, I don't work half as many hours, so meh. T thing lives pretty close to the amusement park.
Kim and I finished Full Metal Alchemist, our chosen project after One Piece. We're currently halfway through Soul Eater, but have kinda lost interest... I'm voting for Fairy Tail next, but right now I think Bakuman'll win. T thing wants to join us when we watch Bakuman.
As I'll be graduating high school this summer, I've had to seriously think about my future. After a lot of thought, I decided to try my hand at translation. There's a bachelor course on English Translation at a University in Kristiansand, so that'll be my first stop. T thing doesn't wanna be separated from me for three years, so she wants me to take the next stop first. A bachelor course, three years of Japanese in Oslo. T thing wants to take a class in Special Effects at a different school in Oslo, but it would be hella convenient if we could rent a place together, and it also just sounds.. nice. But taking English first is definitely the most rational thing to do, as there is actually a job in it, which I can do to fund the Japanese studies afterwards. So I got the idea that T thing could maybe take a bachelor in something in Kristiansand with me first... I'm not sure she's even given it a thought though.
but it'll have to wait a year, because:
My second cousin, Anna, whom I used to be joined at the hip with when I was younger, now wants to drag me off to Australia. Working and backpacking in Australia. I said no at first, but after a lot of discussing back and forth, we are now going there together in the beginning of January 2013. It's going to be pretty exciting, and I've wanted to go to Australia since I first learned where kangaroos come from.
Only one downside.
I'll get a tan D:
Also, T thing doesn't want me to leave her behind in this cold, cold country.
I've been drawing quite a lot lately, and recently started inking my sketches, which made it way easier to work with when they were scanned. You can see all my art-spam on deviantart http://madda13.deviantart.com
T thing is quite the inspiration when it comes to drawing.
Kim has been doing an Amnesia let's play, and for the past couple of weeks, T thing and I have joined him. It's quite hilarious, as he is running around, screaming and panicking, while T thing and I are trying to make him stop, and turn around, so we can get a good look at the monsters. We also do stuff like encourage him to jump down wells or take a swim in acid.
Yesterday we had fun making fanart of ourselves xDhttp://madda13.deviantart.com/#/d4tzuqu
Tarjei, my nephew, has started talking. It's creepy. T thing sympathizes with me.
I made a second Tumblr account, because I kept spamming my poor followers with too much One Piece. http://luffys-hind-legs.tumblr.com
is my One Piece spam blog where I post and reblog what the heck I want without caring one bit about my followers... and apparently it's quite popular xD Gained like 7 followers in one day. T thing doesn't follow it though.
The other day I won a ticking fight with one hand tied behind my back. It was quite refreshing. T thing had already left though, so she didn't participate.
I now officially ship everything within the One Piece universe. This amuses T thing.
Cosplay is coming up, and this time i'm going to cosplay Kcalb, from http://blackadventurescomic.com
once again, it's an obscure character that no one has probably ever heard of, but I think it's going to be fun anyway. T thing'll probably go as a zombie again.
I can't really come up with anything more at this point
life is alright
I'm procrastinating a lot, and spending most of my time doing useless things, but I somehow make it work.
I'm sorry I'm never on LJ, and MSN anymore, but the more I try being productive and actually visiting my F-list, the longer I put it off. Now I don't even post my memes on LJ anymore, which really saddens me. It's all Deviantart and tumblr.
dunno really what to add to that
I forgot to give T thing back her head yesterday.
