So I guess this is where I tell you and show you some things you normally wouldn't see here. If you're confused, look at my previous entry.

Have you ever been in a serious relationship?
How long did it last?
Why and how did it end?
What are your feeling now about it?

Technically 3, but I'd rather answer '2'. The last one ended 4 years ago, so I've been single for quite a while now. The longest one and the one I definately was the most into was the first one, which lasted 6 months. From we were 17 to 18. His name was Olaf and I was sooo into him haha. I have such good memories of those months. The feelings sorta faded for both of us though, so we just went on a break that never ended. No drama :)

What do you do when you fart?
Blame it on someone else, or admit to it?

I can't stand fart humor and that's all I'm going to answer to this :P

what i ever ask about and what you never write about is your personal future. what about a job? what about photography as a serious job? what about being somewhere special in 20 years? paris? stockholm? back to norway? across the pond?

I guess anyone that really knows me in real life will laugh at the '20 years ahead' part because I am really so incapable of imagining what my life will be like that far into the future. I have trouble with just one year! At present time the furthest ahead I have planned is may when I am going to Norway for my sister's Confirmation. After that I have no clue what will happen. As for what I want to do, that's photography. Of course things like that can change in the future, but like I just explained I'm not really good at taking the future into account. I'm just going with the flow and right now I love working on my photos and learning more about that. As for ambitions with this I don't really have many. If I can make a living doing something I enjoy that should be enough for me I think. This is part of the reason why I'm a bit glad I didn't end up in NYC like I wanted for a while. I know the US is a very ambition driven culture, especially New York, and "getting ahead" is the big thing. I'm a bit more...chill ;)

(i can't really take full credit for the photo above as i obviously didn't press the shutter. call it a "collab" if you want)

You're right. It's a very rapid-paced environment. I'm more of a chill person myself and often feel as though I'd have a much easier time at life somewhere else.

Just an observation from a yank. NYC is NOT "the" United States. This country is massive, so are our states which are the size of your countries. Texas alone is bigger the France. Our people and culture are as a diverse as our land mass and while NYC may be an "ambition" driven place, there are plenty of places that are "chill". Personally, I cant wait to get back to Germany either, for a visit, France and Italy included.

Dude, he's a yank. And he lives in Texas :P

And while I think NYC is the most hardcore with the ambition worship, I think there is a lot of it in the rest of America too. Just look at simple things like the education system.

I stand corrected. It is even more surprising that a yank would base there opinion of the entire American culture on NYC. As far as education, I met some young Germans on an Adriatic beach at Jesolo who were studying (on Holiday) math courses that are college level in the United States. I would call those youngsters (age's 15 and 16) ambitious. Perhaps not typical, I don't know. Anyway, I love the sharing of opinions and I live the unique insight and perspective of your countries and culture.

Hmm the last question got me thinking. I'm an extremely inquisitive (nosey) person so there's a lot I'd like to ask but I feel like I shouldn't because you've probably already explained it to people while I've not been there.


How's your French getting along?
