I’ve been working on a project the last month, I’m not sure if I told you about it, I think I did, a while back. I couldn’t tell you then, cause it wasn’t ready, but now it is. I’ve started a new blog with five other girls. It is called Seks om alt. Mari’s boyfriend, Magnus (who was in my class at NKF), made the layout. Then I coded the website in WordPress. It was a fun challenge to do a coding job for a layout that someone else made. I learned a lot by doing so. Anyways, here’s how it looks like:
As I told you we are six girls who’s going to post on this site. Everyone is the same age and sorta grew up together. Now everyones lives are totally different. Mari is studying in Liverpool to become a creative writer. Martine is studying in Oslo to become a vet and is also super athletic and loves skiing. Melissa just became a mom seven months ago to a beautiful boy. Rikke is living in Liverpool with Mari and started studying there this semester. Ane is the only one who’s single and she’s studying in London.
So as you can see, everyone is quite different and I think that this blog might turn out quite good, with a lot of diversity.
I haven’t started blogging there a 100 percent yet, but I will as soon as everyone has posted an entry. Also if you click each of the names in the menu you can get all the entries from each person, including a header photo like this:
For all you english speaking out there I have to disappoint you, the blog is in Norwegian. I’m sure you can try to google translate it though. If you like the idea of the blog and want to follow us in the future please like us on our facebook page.
Hi guys. I haven’t had the chance to write to you in a while. We decided to do a traditional Norwegian Christmas, so we’ve been busy planing, cocking, cleaning and celebrating. It turned out better than I expected. This was my first Christmas ever without my family. I have tons of photos from the last couple of days, I just haven’t had the time to edit them.
Right now I’m going out shopping, it’ boxing day here in Australia and there’s tons of sale. I just wanted to write a quick post to let you know I’m still here and I survived the Christmas:)

I haven’t blogged in a while because my father was here till late Saturday, so I would rather spend my time with him instead of blogging. I’m sure you guys understand. It was really sad saying goodbye to him. It’s okay having your family on the other side of the globe when you don’t see them, and when you do it is absolutely fantastic, but then they have to leave again and you miss them even more. He got home safe last night after a 24 hour trip. He texted me last night telling me he had landed, at that time I felt I could finally breath again. I know it’s safe to fly, but you’re always a little worried.
Anyways, the time with my father down here was amazing! We managed to do loads of stuff in 16 days. 10 of those days were spent in Gold Coast at Kirra Beach/ Coolangatta. Such a beautiful place! The weather wasn’t the best, but we got 3-4 days with sun. I took tons of photos, so I figured I could divide them in two. Here’s part one. The second part will be up later today if I get the chance.
Morten on top of a little hill with an amazing view. This is the beach we spent the most time at, Kirra beach. Our apartment is just in front of the orange building there.
Here’s the view the other way of Coolangatta city.
We went to Surfers Paradise one day when it was raining just to explore. It was so beautiful there. Unfortunately it rained so much so we didn’t get to look around properly. Though we had the best meal there ever!
Me and my father in Coolangatta.
The lifeguard houses on the beach.
Finally good weather. My father bought a couple of body boards. He and Morten had so much fun with these boards, I’ll show you some photos in the next post.
Morten and I rented some surf boards for a two days. This was his first time trying ever and my…ehh.. third? It was fun, but really hard and the surf wasn’t the best the days we tried.
Here’s Morten trying to catch a wave.
One last photo of the beautiful place.
I’m soooo happy!! Today my father is coming to visit me!! I never thought he would come down here. I’m gonna go meet him at Southern Cross in 25 minutes. weeeee! happy!!!
Oh! And it is his birthday today! I’ve made him a cake and bought some good beers.
