Parallel parking

Don't you just love it when you finally have gotten your car perfect parked between two cars (on first trial mind you). You look into your rearview mirror and see the car behind you pull out....

Dear Cleaning god

When I was thinking today that I need to clean my bathroom this weekend. I did not mean for you to plug my drain when emptying out the bathtub water.

I only meant that this weekend the bathroom needs to be cleaned and wiped down.

At least I can thick of clean the drain from the list.

A Klash of Kings

A Klash of Kings
By: George R.R. Martin

Book two in the game of thrones series. As with the previous book I find myself more reading the book and waiting for events to occur than actually enjoying what has been written on the pages. I like it but am to distracted from the TV series. I hunt for differences and subtle changes in all the chapter find myself analysing how they did this or that. Everything just feels like a prolonged journey until I can open book three and actually get to enjoy each page as they should be enjoyed: With anticipation, dread and curiosity.

Beacause of this I will only give it a three.

Page count: 3 215 + 969 = 4 184

Cleaning out my closet

Three years ago I did a raid in my closet at removed all items that were to small and put them into a box. Fall of 2011 I pulled about 75% out of that box and into my wardrobe because they fit  me again. Hello weight loss.

The remaning 25% I gave away to charity.

This weekend I am planning to do a reverse closet cleaning. All items that are to large will be put into a box and put into storage. Yes I am quite ceratin that I will fit into these clothes at one point in my life. Yes there are pieces of clothing that look good baggy and then there are those you sort of look sick like you have an eating disorder in. Those are the items that gets to move into stogare for now.

Wear and tear

I am a person that loves to shop and buy new things. But I am also a person that never ever ever throw away items that are not worn to pieces.

I have managed to convince myself on several occasions that I need to give items to charity and that I do.

what I find interesting is how much underwear some people seem to be purchasing a year. I think on average I might buy 2 new bras a year and knickers I have no clues (I buy those when I'm in desperate need of new ones). Yes since I have a small bra size I know that I don't put as much strain on them as a person with a D-cup. But still. How many bras do a person need honestly?

Will get back some day on these thoughts.....

The disapointment

I didn't get the job!

I can deal with that. But what they told me and they real reason... well those stories are not matching up.

My BIG issue with this is why not just tell me that they had found a more suitable candidate?!
Instead of asking me to apply for the position in june when it comes out again?

2012 through the rearview mirror

2012 the year my blog died. Or almost.

I have had all intentions to blog almost everyday, but about what?

My anciety attacks that ripped my life apart. They started easter 2011 and calmed down in june 2012. But until then almost everyday was a struggle. Yes Mexico was not to bad, I had other things to focus about, but when I came home I fell apart.

In 2012 I completed my master thesis, I graduated from university with a masters degree in science AND I dared to stand up when I couldn't take it anymore.

If 2011 was a highspeed rollercoaster with extreme highs and lows, 2012 was a struggle. To make it out of bed, to write my thesis, to stand infront of the class teaching. I have had panicattacks at work not nowing how to hold it together, I have cried, cired and cired until there were no more tears.
There were months were I hardly slept at all. 2-3hrs undistrubed sleep was a dream come true.

And then came June, a new job for a couple of months. No everything during this time was not a dance on roses, there were hard times. But oh SO many good times and the friends I made during this summer. You guys helped so much.

My other friends I know who you are and where I have you guys. That all of you had the energy to stand beside me, hold me up, push me forward, listen, listen, listen and give good advice. There is no way that I ever can repay what you have done for me. I love you guys with all my heart and more.

This fall has been slow, oh so slow, the waiting for something to happend. Right now when I write this and try to sumarize my year I can honestly say that there has been alot of crazy nights with to much alcohol, guys, ice cream, pizza and freinds!

2012 was also the year I started to run. I ran tjejmilen on 64.58 min and am planning to next year run SUB60!

to sumarize 2012 this was the year when I closed doors that needed closing, basically straightened out many questionarks!

2013 feels like the year of change!
