It’s one year today since the terror that happened in Norway, July 22nd. 77 people died because of one horrible man. Today is the day to remember them. I’ve been following the news from Norway all day. Wish I could be there.
It’s unbelievable that it’s already been a year. I remember when it happened, I had only been here in Australia two weeks. I was talking to a friend while she suddenly heard the bomb from where she lives. it was quite late here so we stayed up all night following the terror online.
I surprised him with presents in bed when he woke up. I didn’t go all out like I did for Christmas, more normal sized gifts this time:) but he was happy:)
Happy birthday, Morten<3
The party starts in a couple of hours. I’m sick, but I’ve been looking so much forward to this that I’m gonna try to ignore it.
Today we started school again after six weeks of winter break. It’s so weird that this is my last semester in school. In three months I’ll be done studying and I’ll have a bachelor degree in graphic design. Unbelievable how time flies. Feels like I started NKF(Oslo) yesterday.
We didn’t get any new assignment today, just a lecture. Last semesters folios weren’t good enough, so Jo did a new lecture on what they’re expecting of our final folio. Some studios gave feedback on them and gave us some tips on what to do and what they’re looking for in a good folios. So this semester I really have to bring it. I’ve already planned to take photos of each assignment right away and do test prints from day one.
We’ll get our first assignment tomorrow. I hope it’s something fun!
It’s two days left of our winter break. Since we came back from Port Douglas, almost two weeks ago, we’ve just been taking it easy and hanging out with friends. I’m sorry that I haven’t been updating at all the last weeks I’ve really just been enjoying the time off. Mari, my best friend and her boyfriend, who was in my class at NKF in Oslo, came down here the day after we got back from Port Douglas. I’m so happy she’s here, I’ve missed her so much. Magnus, her boyfriend is starting at RMIT the year below us. Mari has to go back to school in Liverpool in September, which means she’s gonna stay here a while. yey for that!:)
Anyway, I took tons of photos from our vacation in Port Douglas. I think I got around 7 more posts from the different things we did up there. So watch this space. This one here is from when we met up with Anders (one of the guys we live with) and his girlfriend Anniken, who was visiting from Norway. They went up to Cairns the same time we were in Port Douglas. They rented a car in Cairns, picked us up on the way and then we went on a road trip up to Cape Tribulation. First stop along the way was at Daintree discovery centre. We were told that if we were lucky and patient we would see a lot of animals, but we didn’t see anything other than birds and butterflies. I loved the excitement though, walking around there just watching and waiting for something to pop out.
