a mixed bag of... what?

a detour of dimensions
ended up taking me all the right places

or so it seems

for how do you know if you're in the right place
will you know at all?


In other news, I am now the proud owner of the cheapest ukulele that money could buy. I haven't played any instrument in years so I'm quite rusty, however, I am actually mastering a few simple chords already (how very proud of myself I am).

This semester is almost over.. I feel like it just started, how time passed so fast is still a mystery to me. It is always like that.

It has almost been a year, but I remember that day like it was yesterday. I probably always will. It's funny, how it is the saddest memories, those you would rather forget, that will stick to your brain like an old piece of gum stuck under your shoe.

so many ideas, so little time.

lyrics i wish i'd written


hang my eyes up on a hook
swells the panic i can't look
inside my own skin i fail to find myself again

a million faces look the same
and their replies evaporate
there's no soul behind these eyes
if they can't glue me back again
ghosts drop hints and whisper things
just blood and bone and bits of string

family portrait on the wall
quiet confusion circle this
i can feel my mother's hand
but i can't find her face to kiss
there's no soul behind these eyes
if they can't glue me back again
someone's life inside a box
nothing here resets the clocks
ghosts drop hints and whisper things
just blood and bone and bits of string

when it falls..

The first snow of the year fell yesterday, it went on for hours, just quietly falling.
I like the way everything seems to move in slow motion when it snows.

There's something magic about it, the snow...

a thought

I wonder if you at one point become immune to bad news.
Right now all I feel is this numbness.
I should be devastated, I know.

ooops i did it again..

Somehow this financial crisis doesn't seem to stop me from spending way too much money on records... I wonder why? Yes, I accidentally went into this shop where they had millions and millions of used records (no lie!). And since I needed some Beatles albums in my little collection pretty badly I picked up these three babies... And I've been listening to them constantly all afternoon! Rubber Soul is my favourite as it has one of my all time favourite Beatles tunes, 'In my Life', on it... OH, and it is t
he UK version of the album which apparently means that it has 14 tracks instead of the 12 which is on the US counterpart - yay! I would like to frame the Abbey Road and Help! covers, it would look so cool, but it is not really an option it seems..
My last purchase of the day is Tom Waits' Blue Valentine which is quite fantastic as well, I just love that guy's voice. So yeah, I definitely found a new favourite record store, but I'm afraid I'll go completely bankrupt if I go there again - maybe next month..!

I was in the mood to do a video today, however, all inspiration seemed to have left my body... It will come back though, I'm sure.
And hey, how about all of that love flowing around on the interwebz lately? If that's not amazing I don't know what is... It makes me awfully happy! The only downside is that I feel so far away from everything being stuck in this tiny little country of mine...

Oh well, what to do about it?

direction in life! where the heck did you come from?!?

OMG... I just had an epiphany! It's true...

I know exactly what I want to do with my life for the next 3-4 years. I've never felt like this before.
Wow... this feels really, really odd. But in a good way.
I started thinking, and suddenly everything just fell into place. Everything.

I've found this really great Masters Programme that I want to do once I've finished this Bachelor of mine. And the best thing is that I'll most likely be able to get in...

Oh sweet education system of Denmark, I think I love you..!
This means that my long lost motivation is back. Hell, I'm gonna climb that effin' mountain of academia that my professor rambled about a few weeks ago, and I'll do well!!!

life happens

It really does.
Sometimes it just blows your mind.
It is quite good at the moment, life.

I've been considering marrying Leonard Cohen. However, I've reached the conclusion that he is probably a bit too old for me. He makes good music though...

Oh, talking about marriage, a 'boy' that I used to like is getting married - on my freaking birthday! What a coincidence, huh? ...I am not invited by the way.

C'est la vie...

on my mind.

If it happens soon, I'm afraid I'll blame my dad for not trying harder. Though I know it wouldn't be fair.

oh, sweet nostalgia.. (early adventures in fluffiness)

I went back home this weekend to visit my parents. I spent some time looking through old family photos and this is what I found.... I am not the proud owner of a scanner so you'll have to live with these, which are basically digital photos taken of old crappy photos.
Um and yeah, I used to be blond... And also, I am a true child of the 80s!

Early adventures in fluffiness...

Yes, I actually did have a pet duckling (yea, now is the point where you should feel great pet-envy!)... Sadly, one day, the dog we had at the time ate the duckling, while I was watching... talk about childhood trauma!!

Me and a ton of cats...

My brother and me.. did I mention it was in the 80s!!? And how cool is that blue Volvo?

Well, I hope that you enjoyed this little trip down memory lane as much as I did... I know the picture quality is not the best, but hey, sometimes a girl has to improvise a little!

I'm sure that I witnessed a piece of very important history this morning.
I am quite happy about the way the US elections turned out.
What I find most impressive though, is the fact that so many people registered to vote and actually took the time and effort to get involved... this makes me feel some sort of reassurance.
There's still hope.... and people still care!

This is me... waiting for change.

It's gonna come I'm sure!

losing my vinyl virginity...

o, I went record shopping today for the first time in my life... It was like going to vinyl heaven... After leaving the store I felt SO high on adrenalin, it was amazing!

I got a few albums and some 45' singles - two of which are simply too awesome not to share with you:

This one is a classic, unfortunately they did not have the entire album...

And this one... Um yeah, I have no idea what this is... I just had to have it! I mean look at the title and those bananas!

Now, all I need is a record player... I will go and get that tomorrow.

heart shaped fall

I found this amazing tree at a cemetery nearby... This is possibly the most beautiful thing I've ever seen.
