SKÅL

I have no words for how upset it makes me to be studying for a stupid oral English assessment the last day of school. Something tells me this is not what I should be doing on what might very well be the last day we are all still here together.

*hitting my head against the wall doing the Bronx cheer*

SUN

The sun is shining in my room. Well, sort of. But that means the seasons are changing, and that makes me very happy! Sorry winter, even with Easter to come, I’m over you. Hope I won’t see you in a while. Just stay away from Paris, Sydney and my room for a while, and we’ll be all good!

Procrastination

I have an english research paper due in 3 hours, and it’s nowhere near half way done. I’ve been supposed to work on this for about 2 months, and I have – in form of research anyway (poor research, but research just the same), but the writing started… lets see… yesterday? And today, I have, yet again, shown behavior worth a golden medal in the world championship of Procrastination. I was writing about Go ask Alice a few hours ago – still am – and I found out they made a movie of it in 1973, so I had to check it out. Then I saw a face I recognized (in the film), and I had to hunt him down, and I realized it was William Shatner. Great, so, where had I seen him before? imdb.com here I come. Star Trek, right. I knew that. No I didn’t. Then I went back to watching some of the movie, and it struck me that the girl who plays Alice (the protagonists name is not really supposed to be Alice, but for the sake of simplicity they chose to give the character that is the main character in the film as well as in the book that name) seems to act a lot like Kristen Stewart. Then I started thinking about how much I adore KStew, and slapped my face until I was able to focus again. Then I started listening to James Horner on Spotify, and all of a sudden I got thinking “wow, this song was sad”, and I looked to see what it was, and it was from the movie “The boy in the striped pajamas”, and I thought “man, I could cry just seeing the cover of that score”. And I almost did. That’s when I realized I hadn’t blogged in a while – which I was already sorely aware of – and I typed this in a record time of two minutes (I assume), and now I’m thinking, man I wasted two minutes, and now I’m only left with 2 hours and 46 minutes to finish my research paper (which isn’t really a research paper, because  my teacher decided to call it an in depth study). I gotta go.

Ey, what about that Gold Medal? Anyone?

Censorship

Hey Internet!

I’m writing an in-depth-study on censorship in books, i.e. banned and/or challenged books. I need examples of books banned on sexual, social, religious and political ground. Some trivia on the matter would also be much appreciated. So, if you’d like to help a stranger in need, any links, quotes, trivia, tips etc. would be highly valued.

In advance, thank you for your assistance.

Sincerely yours,

Edel Garstad

Seriously though – I’d love some help.

Oh so Random?

I dag gikk vannet på hele skolen. Ikke en dråpe vann i vasken, dusjen eller doen. Etter to timer med gym – så vidt overlevd med en kopp vann – slo jeg en ny personlig rekord. Tror jeg da i alle fall. Jeg pleier i hvert fall ikke stå i dusjen i 1 time til vanlig. Så satt jeg meg ned for å gjøre ferdig historieleksa (hva er Ishavsimperialismen), og endte opp her i steden for. Jeg har på følelsen at dette kommer til å bli et tomt innlegg, ettersom jeg ikke har noe spesielt å skrive om, men vi får se hva som skjer 😉

I går “oppdaget” jeg bandet fun.. Og i dag “oppdaget jeg” Salem Al Fakir. Fine band det der. Be Calm og Keep On Walking er mine favoritter så langt. Og så har jeg hørt litt mer på Florence + The Machine. Eg likAr det.

Kanskje eg skulle seie litt om People’s Choise Awards, sidan det er noko som opptar meg? Vel, Kristen Stewart (aka. Bella Swan) – mi heltinne og favoritt ung skodespelarinne vann pris for beste kvinnelege skodespelar i Twilight Saga: Eclipse. Filmen Eclipse vann og beste film, beste drama og beste lag på ein skjerm. Det er vel klart eg likAr dét.

Når eg først nemner Kristen Stewart, er det vel kanskje passande å sei at eg klør i fingrane etter å få kloa i “Welcome to the Rileys”. Eg vil sjå han no. Og sidan me no snakkar om å klø, kan det vel og nemnast at eg klør i heile meg etter å få starte på framtida mi. Eg kjenner meg litt “stuck” i Videregåande. Ikkje at det ikkje er fint – men eg gledar meg til å komme meg vidare!!!!!

Det var det. Nesten 300 ord med tomheit. Takk for at du las det likevel.

Nynorsk er best, så ikkje gidd å kommenter det ein gong – og ja, eg veit at dei to første avsnitta står på Riksmål 😉

Kan forresten ikkje ikkje legge ved denne songen. Ha ein fin dag!
