I’m going to Australia, Melbourne, to study!!
This is the reason I haven’t been blogging as much as I used to. I’ve been working on my portfolio. I finished it yesterday. I’m not 100% happy with how it turned out, though I think it’s enough to get in. I’ve applied at RMIT and will be studying there for 1,5 years to get my Bachelor’s degree in graphic design. I’ll be leaving for Melbourne in the beginning of July.
It’s so unreal. I’ve always wanted to study abroad and now I have the opportunity. I’ll never get this opportunity again. Because of the cancer I didn’t think I’d get the chance this year, I had sort of given it up. Cause I’m still behind on some school work, but I’m gonna work hard these last months to get everything finished. I actually decided to go just three weeks ago!
Under you can see my portfolio site. some of the work I’ve done is not quite finished and doesn’t look so good. I had to have 10-15 assignments so I just had to post what I got. I’m gonna work more on the site to make it better later. What do you think?
Look at these funny glasses I found online today. You can actually buy them at Asos for £158(!!!). Not sure if I should categorize them under fashion though:P What do you think?
You know that feeling when you have a fever and it hurts in your whole body when you move? Even just an inch? That’s the feeling I have right now. I hate it!
It started yesterday morning with a sore throat when I woke up at my friends place. It just got worse for every hour yesterday. I hoped it would get better and that I got away with just the sore throat, but boy was I wrong. My nose is all stuffy, can’t breath through it anymore. But I can survive a stuffy nose, it’s more the fever I hate, cause my body is all messed up. Wish I had someone here to take care of me.
I was supposed to go out drinking last night, I had taken several beers during the day, but when I got home the fever kicked in and I just had to go to bed. I was a little better earlier today so I went out to have sushi with some friends. Had to take advantage while I was feeling okay;) Though I’m even worse now. I just pray for this to be over soon. I start school again on Tuesday and I really have to be there.
Me at the moment. Lovely.
Oh, and I almost forgot to tell you. You know the guy I told you about, the one who came up to me on the street and wanted my number. He called me today. I saw it was an unknown number so I knew it was him. He wanted to go for a walk with me, but since I was feeling so terrible I had to take a rain check. I’m not sure if I want to meet him, but I probably should, just figure out how he is, instead of turning him down immediately, right?
On Monday I went out, you know cause I told you. lol! The concert was so much fun. Afterwards I went out to drink even more, which I really, really shouldn’t have. You see I had to work on Tuesday. I was so hungover, like I’ve never been before. I took the hangover to a whole new level. I had to like tiptoe around at work so that I wouldn’t trow up or die:P (BTW, please don’t use me as a role model, I SUCK!!!!)
So on Tuesday I looked pretty bad, I also overslept so I didn’t have time to put on any cool clothes or fix my make up. It was bad, but I survived the day. On my way home I stopped by the supermarket to get candy, pizza, cola, ice cream and all the stuff you need when you’re hungover. On my way out I walked past this guy and then I headed for my apartment. 10 meters from my front door I heard someone yell “wait, hey, wait!”. I turned around and the boy I had walked past came after me. He told me he had never done this before but he thought I looked so pretty so he just had to talk to me. LOL!!!!! I just laughed, cause I was so hungover and looked like hell.
The boy was sweet, though he was a little too young for me. I’m 23 and he is 20. Maybe not that bad, but I know how much I have grown in three years. I didn’t want to hurt his feelings since he had been so brave coming up to me, so I gave him my phone number. Maybe I’ll have a coffee with him some other time or maybe I just have to let him down easy when he contacts me. I sorta didn’t have the heart to do it face to face. In Norway no guy comes up to you like that on the street, so it was pretty cool:)
Random photo from last week. Sorry again for bad blogging lately. I’ll try to work on it;)
I just want you to let you know I’m still alive:) On Friday I went out, than I worked on Satuday, while I was still hungover. Sunday I needed to just sleep out.
Now I just tasted Mezcal, it’s from Mexico. I regret drinking it, cause it was like too strong. I feel bad right now. This mexican person tels us it’s like stronger than tequila! And I hate tequila. No more for me. This is easter break from me. I need to do something else than just sit in, so this is what I’m doing. Doesn’t sound good, I know. We’re gonna go to this concert by Dropkick Murphys, I’ve never heard of them before. Hope it’s gonna be fun!:D
Sorry for this bad, really bad blog post!!! I was supposed to make it better by bringing my camera, but in the st minute I dicided not to. I hate myself. sorry.
Do you want more hits on your website? Maybe make some money while you’re at it?
A little while back my father introduced me to a website called Goodleadz. This is a place you can buy advertising and make money. Make money doing good is their motto. They use some kind of affiliate system, it’s all still a little unclear to me, but I understand the basics. I first started as a free member. As a free member you can add your website to get more hits, which actually work. My numbers has already increased. To get more hits you have to search at least 20 websites a day. They have this Surf now button, when you click it you’ll get to this rotating page. You have to stay on a website for 20 seconds to make it count. Try the rotator here.
My father helped me put in some money on my account two weeks ago. I first started with $150. Everyday I make 1,2% of this amount. The more money I put into it the more money I make a day. The $150 is money I have spent so I will not be abel to take any of this out. When I’ve made $10 I pay this in so that I make more. When I have a lot of money in there I can make more money and when It has increased more I will take out 20% and pay 80% in to keep the money growing. I know this sounds a little complicated, but it’s actually not. This one guy my father knows makes over $300 a day. Which is incredible when you think about it, cause all he does to earn this money is to browse 20 websites a day (a 10 minutes job). Right now I make about $2 a day, it will take a while for me to get this amount up. The plan is to invest in more money later, but right now I’m broke. Another guy my father knows takes out almost $2000 a month, which is sounds absolutely crazy, right?
You’re probably thinking that this thing must be illegal. That’s what I thought too. Though it’s not. An American lawyer has gone through all the papers and approved everything. My father arranged a meeting at his house a couple of weeks ago where this guy came to inform us about the website. My father is so eager, it’s funny, he has been doing this for four months now and at this point he makes around $50 a day. But you have to spend some money to make them, the best thing is to go in with $1000 the first time. That’s what the guy my father knows did, and right now he lives on this site, he doesn’t have any other job. Weird.
This is how my account looks like at the moment, for the last three days I’ve made $7,15. When this amount is at $10 I will add this to the place saying Active Ad Shares. This is money I have spent and will never get back, but the clue is that the more money I have there the more money I get a day. Also the place saying Commission Balance is where I’ll make money when I get some paying people underneath me. I’m not stressing with this. I’m just gonna see how everything goes first:)
Of course you don’t have do go in with any money if you want to join. You can just join as a free member to get more hits on your website, but you have to remember to surf 20 websites a day. If you want to join just click HERE.
At work me and my colleagues always makes fun of the customers. There are so stupid some times. Not that we’re bad people or anything, but listen to this:
In the fitting room we have a desk we use to alarm and hang up clothes. On Saturdays when there’s a lot of people we use the desk to get all the clothes customers has tried on sorted out. It’s very helpful and I’m sure you’ve all noticed the desk I’m talking about. Some customers actually tries to pay at this desk. They ask “Can I pay here?”. How stupid can you be? Does it really look like a cashier’s stand? Cause there’s like no computer there or anything else that would be on a cashier’s stand.
Other times I have customers coming up to me and asking me how they can get out of the store. HELLO?! How did you get in? I work on the 2nd floor and in the middle of the store we have escalators going up and down. Usually I get this question when I’m standing right next to the escalators. It’s like they don’t use their eyes and they need me to look for them. This one time a customer first asked me the way out and then she asked me the direction to the children’s department. I told her it was upstairs and then she almost turned white and said she would get lost if she went up there. She wasn’t even old, maybe 40-50 years old. I looked at her and told her that she could do it, “I believe in you!”. LOL!
I work in the Divided department and the most funny questions I get from customers is: “Where is the Divided department?”. Every single time I get this question I start to laugh. I usually answer it with: “You’re standing in it!”. I understand that people ask cause they don’t know, but how about using your eyes before asking?
And then we have the regular most asked, stupid question I get ALL the time: “Do you work here?”. I always answer “No, I just like cleaning stores!”. This usually makes the customer smile. But when you see a person cleaning the racks and wearing a badge with the stores name they usually work there, so there’s no need to ask him/her if they work there. Right? It can be an icebreaker though, so I understand sometimes when they ask me.
I love customers, they make my day!
I’m broke. fuck.
The plan this weekend was to stay in, no going out drinking, because I’m broke. But instead I went out with some colleagues. I didn’t spend any money though. I got everything “free”. It was so much fun, me and this guy sort of had a competition where we would get people to buy beer for us. It went quite well actually. lol! I was a little hungover yesterday, of course. Sunday = hangovers (always):P
I had some money left today but stupid as I am I managed to buy a bikini. It’s sooo nice and very popular at H&M right now, so I just had to get it while they still had my size. Now I’m totally broke. I don’t even have money for food. At the supermarket earlier today I had to like remove stuff one by one until my card accepted it. ha ha! Embarrassing. So instead of the two dinners I wanted to buy I could only afford the eggs. great! I get my scholarship on Thursday though, I just have to manage til then. Good luck, Vibeke!
Bikini from H&M.
Hi guys. This week has been a bad blog week for me. I’m so sorry. I’ve just been so busy with school, work and something else I’ll tell you about later;)
Today I had an appointment at the hospital again, just a little check up after the operation. I arrived 15 minutes early and waited for almost 30 minutes before they called me in. The doctor looked at me kinda funny and told me there had to be some sort of mix up. You see this doctor was an ear specialist. WHAT, right? Okay, so I had to go to another waiting room and sit there an hour to wait for a new doctor (who was actually just a nurse). Stupid hospital! There’s always something wrong. It’s like they don’t communicate with each other. The check up went fine, my throat/scar looked normal. They also took some blood from me before I left to see if my TSH and calcium level is back to normal. It felt like a waisted trip to the hospital. All that time waiting for nothing.
At school now we’re still working on the packaging assignment. It’s due next Friday. I’ve come up with an idea I really like. Instead of choosing an existing product I’m making my own. A chocolate box/bag to be exact. The ingredients are from Australia, like natural chocolate with macadamia nuts. The design I’m making for the bag is inspired by the aboriginal art. The Aborigines believed in something called Dreamtime, which I think is a perfect name for a chocolate, therefore I’m using that name. This is how my packaging looks so far (without any labels):
What do you think of the idea and chocolate bag I’ve made? BTW, Thanks for all the suggestions for this assignment! I really appreciate it!
