Packing

Honestly, the amount of stuff (books) I’ve collected over the past school year is embarrassing. At the moment I’m packing for Minneapolis and it’s chaos in here – which makes me really stressed because I’m leaving in four hours… Ok, gotta go!!

Wish me luck!

This weeks

What am I grateful for? 

I have a lot to be grateful for, but this week I’ve been thinking a lot about how happy I am to have a full functioning body, without any disabilities. That’s not something to take for granted! 


What made me smile? 

I’m one of those individuals that you catch smiling for no reason what so ever, just because I’m lost in my own mind. It can be when I’m walking from A to B, day dreaming in class, do homework and zone out, running on the treadmill or any other situation. Nonetheless, I’ve been feeling lighter now that I’ve gone two or three months(?) without drinking. Life’s breezy.

Best workout? 

Two days ago I lifted 70,5 kilos in squats, which I haven’t been able to do in a long time. The moment I realized I would be able to go through with 10 reps with that weight was glorious. 

Song.

This song from Nicki Minaj is sooooo goooood!

Life

Hey! How’s everybody? 
From my side I’m still hanging in there but I’m hanging from my little finger and my little finger’s not very strong. I read the other day a text that said “College is like constantly running to catch a train that’s already started moving, and you can barely keep up with the speed. You never quite catch it but keep running for your life”. That statement is very true. 

I think my train is far gone by now tho… Can someone make me famous already?!


XOXO.

Life

This week has been crazy, I don’t even know where to begin. On tuesday I got the message that a family member of mine had died in an accident. Later that same night, Trump got elected as president. Other stuff that’s not blog-able is also going on. On top of that, these little shitty happenings keep coming at me, like recieving a bill on over $1000, for something I was not supposed to pay for in the first place. Karma, give me a break. 


Hope you’re having a better week than me. 

Much love.<3

No

I need a day in silence for the world after this election. How can people continue their life as “normal” after watching who the new president is? This night got me feeling like I wanna fake my own death and run away to a lost Island, away from all humanity. I definitely don’t want my future kid (if I ever decide to get one) to be born into the world as it looks like at the moment. Ugh, I feel so hopeless and empty right now. 


Night.

Halloween

I just woke up after a fun night. Yesterday we celebrated halloween, and I experienced it in America for the first time. It’s way bigger here than in Norway so I’m happy I’ve been a part of it.


How’s your halloween weekend going?

The Dakota Access Pipeline

Hello everyone.

Today I want to talk about something extremely important, that ruins the water whom a thousand different lives depend on, not just native americans but animals too, ofcourse. I’m talking about The Dakota Access pipeline who’s set to be constructed near the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation in North Dakota, crossing under the Missouri River which is the only source of water to the reservation. The pipeline is planned to transport approximately 470,000 barrels of crude oil per day. The potential of oil leaks would contaminate the only source of water for the reservation. While Dakota Access claims oil leaks are unlikely, an oil leak from a separate pipeline in North Dakota was discovered (8/15/16) to have leaked over 500 barrels of oil since the leak began on July 19, 2016. You can read the article here: http://bit.ly/2aVm5cv. A leak like this from the Dakota Access pipeline would leave the Standing Rock Sioux without any clean water. There are several demonstrations towards this, and I wish I could participate, but the laws here in America says that visitors without American citizenship can’t protest legally. Obviously, I’m not risking to be thrown out of the country. I can, however, spread awareness amongst the people I know and on other platforms, which in this case is my blog.

The Corps’ approval of the permit allows the oil company to dig the pipeline under the Missouri River just upstream of the reservation and the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe’s drinking water supply. An oil spill at this site would constitute an existential threat to the Tribe’s culture and way of life.

The Dakota Access Pipeline project, also known as Bakken Oil Pipeline, would extend 1,168 miles across North Dakota, South Dakota, Iowa, and Illinois, crossing through communities, farms, tribal land, sensitive natural areas and wildlife habitat. The pipeline would carry crude oil from the Bakken oil fields in North Dakota to Illinois where it will link with another pipeline that will transport the oil to terminals and refineries along the Gulf of Mexico. Despite objections by the Standing Rock Sioux and other organizations, construction of the pipeline began.

I can’t express enough how important it is that you take action and sign the petition. Oil isn’t our future anyway, it’ll end some day and then what? We’ve ruined our water so we can’t use that as a source to for example electricity. It’s about time we start using our natural resources who are sustainable and recycable. It’s mine, ours, and your future we’re talking about. This should make you angry! How dare they destroy our earth and our future for the temporary pleasure of money and business? This is not the direction we want our world to take, I refuse.

SIGN THE PETITION NOW!
