Things I have done in recent times: drinking lots of coffee, skiing lot of bus and train and just hanging out at home with the girls I live with, usually in someone’s bed or on the floor.

Things that I have done in recent times but not photographed: Going to lectures and seminars at my new University, slowly getting some new friends there, borrowed heavy books from the library for my research and worked at the shop over the weekends. I have also cried. Every day. Plural times. I have started seeing a therapist and had a visit from Cash and Kristina from Berlin. “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times”. Or something like that..

The last four days of my holiday I spent in Gothenburg at Way out West. Can you believe this is two whole months ago? Crazy. Stina and I stayed at her aunts and uncles amazing flat and the day before we hung out in the city with Linn and Mari. There were bbq’s and drinks and then the festival started. With amazing band playing, constantly sunny weather AND my girls from Oslo were there <3 <3 Frida, Elina and Alice who I used to spend every waken second with a few years ago when we all lived in London. Being with them altogether at the same time again for the first time since I went to visit them in 2014 made me realise how much I truly miss them.

The first two days we spent drinking. Constantly. Like you do when you feel young and immortal. Don’t you worry, we sure did pay for that later.

A small side note: I don’t want to glorify drinking. We all know it’s great fun but it is not everything. Since returning after Way out West I have been sober (ok I had 2 pints with a friend about a month ago..) and I have honestly never felt better. Just wanted to give a bigger perspective on things.

Two days ago I told you about Lidelsen, the festival some of my friends arranged this summer. You got to see the preparations here, now here is the rest of the festival.

In the morning we had breakfast and coffee, fixing until the last minute before all guests arrived. Then we started straight away, opened the bar, had lunch, opened the exhibition-barn and started the long list of bands and dj’s playing. We witnessed the sun rising, shining, sinking and rising again. As I said in my last post, the only word I can think of to describe it all is MAGICAL.

Not only was it magical spending these days with the beautiful scenery or the fact that we were all drunk and happy all day long. To see something coming together, after months of preparations and hard work, that is just as magical as being drunk being the sun rise over the fields.

Hopefully there will be another one this summer. If there is, I will make sure to let you know, it would be great to see you all there.
