longer nights are yet to come.

Jeg savner deg, Norge. Bratte fjell og trange fjorder, snøkledte tinder, isbreer...

my dearest love

empty hallways and silent rooms. just shadows in the corners where you used to hide and watch me love you more and more. with every single day I’ve loved you more than the world could imagine.
now I can see the stars. thousands of stars up in the sky and I am sure one of them is you. you still watch me. without the pain. without the rush. just you and me, separated through space. but even space cannot take away the moments I had you in my arms, loving you, caring about you. In my mind I will always hold you there - still loving you, still caring. Even if I can’t feel you anymore. Hear you. See you. I will always, always think of you.
I’m gonna miss you every second for the rest of my life until we meet again. Sleep well, my dearest love. You made me feel complete.

looking back on 2015

Here are some questions I found on tumblr and decided that maybe it would be nice to reflect on 2015. It has been a hell of a year, with both bad and good, so let's see.

What did you do in 2015 that you’d never done before?
Finally my graduation from school - after a long, long road of bad decisions.

Did you keep your new year’s resolutions, and will you make more for next year?
I kept it, I think. Maybe not all of them, but the most important ones. And yes, I will make more for next year.

Did anyone close to you give birth?

Did anyone close to you die?
Again, no.

What countries did you visit?
What would you like to have in 2016 that you lacked in 2015?
More confidence in what I do and think it's best for me. Not that I "lacked" in 2015, but it should improve.
What dates from 2015 will remain etched upon your memory, and why?
4th of July - graduation party. 14th of July - flight to Norway. 
9th of September - moving to my own apartment.  15th of October - university starts.
What was your biggest achievement of the year?
To finally begin what I love and not feeling bad or guilty about it.
What was your biggest failure?
Doubting what is best for me.
Did you suffer illness or injury?
Sick right now! Hopefully it will be better tomorrow. :D
What was the best thing you bought?
books, books, books. Oh, and that really, really big sofa in my living room. 
Whose behaviour merited celebration?
My grandmas - without her, I wouldn't be studying.
Whose behaviour made you appalled?
My dads. I really should get used to that.
Where did most of your money go?
Norwegian economy! :D
What did you get really, really, really excited about?
About nearly everything "big" that happened in 2015. Graduation, Norway, my own apartment, university.
What song will always remind you of 2015?
Chelsea Wolfe - The waves have come
Compared to this time last year, are you: (a) happier or sadder? (b) thinner or fatter? (c) richer or poorer?
(a) happier - a lot! (b) same same (c) richer. Just of knowledge of course, I'm a student, what do you expect? 
What do you wish you’d done more of?
Do whatever I like, without thinking about it a million times before.
What do you wish you’d done less of?
Stressing myself because of exams. :D
How did you spend Christmas?
With my family.
Did you fall in love in 2015?
What was your favourite TV program?
Don't watch TV. :) But on Netflix, it was "Friends".
Do you hate anyone now that you didn’t hate this time last year?
Not hate, but I think differently about some persons I used to like.
What was the best book you read?
That's a hard one. I think there are a few very good books - I loved Jane Eyre, for example. And Pride & Prejudice.
What was your greatest musical discovery?
Chelsea Wolfe, thanks to a blonde dreaded girl from Norway. ;D 
What did you want and get?
My freedom.
What did you want and not get?
Affordable freedom. :(
What was your favourite film of this year?
As always - Harry Potter, The Hobbit, Pride & Prejudice, The Holiday
What one thing made your year immeasurably more satisfying?
I saw a whale. Should last for a lifetime.
How would you describe your personal fashion concept in 2015?
Witchy, witchy, witchy. And I won't give that up. :D
What kept you sane?
Fulfilling my dreams.
Which celebrity/public figure did you fancy the most?
No one, I guess. 
What political issue stirred you the most?
Where do I start...
Who did you miss?
A special person I don't know yet.
Tell us a valuable life lesson you learned in 2015.
It doesn't matter if your parents or anybody else isn't agreed with what you do or don't do - if it makes you happy, do it. It will be worth it.

Musik, music, musikk

Zuallererst: Anhören. Anilah & Wardruna - Warrior

Dieses Lied begleitet mich nun seit kurz vor Weihnachten, als ein lieber Mensch es mir gezeigt hat. Es passt derzeit so wunderbar zur Stimmung, zur Jahreszeit, einfach insgesamt. An Weihnachten selbst bin ich sogar 500km damit gefahren, ohne etwas anderers anhören zu wollen. :D

Naja, und was habe ich die letzten Tage so gemacht? Nicht recht viel. Momentan bin ich krank, ich habe mir eine Mandelentzündung eingefangen und bin nicht wirklich fit. Trotzdem war ich gestern ein wenig im Wald, frische Luft tut gut und die Sonne hat sich auch endlich mal wieder blicken lassen. Außerdem wollte mein Skinless-Shirt endlich ausgeführt werden. Ein wenig daran herumnähen muss ich noch, die Träger sind etwas zu lang und es rutscht ständig hin und her, aber ansonsten ist es ganz wundervoll. :) Hier ist das gute Stück:

 Das letzte Bild dient eigentlich mehr dazu, um zu zeigen, wie toll der Boden derzeit ist. Es sieht zwar noch sehr herbstlich aus, aber auch der Winter hinterlässt seine Spuren. Ich hoffe nun dringendst auf Schnee, so ganz ohne das Weiß wird es doch hoffentlich nicht bleiben?! Ansonsten fahre ich, sobald es mir wieder besser geht, doch mal in die Berge zum Chiemsee und schaue mal, ob dort Schnee liegt. 

Weihnachten selbst habe ich mehr oder weniger gut rumgebracht - es ist ja immer eine etwas zweifelhafte Geschichte und so sehr ausführen möchte ich das hier auch gar nicht. Aber ich bin ganz froh, dass ich manche Menschen nur einmal im Jahr sehen muss. :D 
Dafür sind dieses Jahr meine Geschenkverpackungen sehr schön geworden und Mama hat sich sehr über ihren Fotokalender gefreut. Und angesichts der Angina & der Tatsache, dass ich eigentlich zurück ins Bett sollte, gibt es jetzt nur noch ein paar Bilder - genießt die Winterferien. :) 

Bestes. <3
Die Katze meiner Mama hat den Umzug noch nicht so sehr verarbeitet. :D

Spending a day at Ikea.

Well, I didn't spend a whole day exactly, but a few hours. Yesterday I got a gift certificate from my relatives and so I thought I could go and look around a little - I was still missing some christmas decorations and a few kitchen things. And I found so much stuff! Not exactly what I wanted except the christmas decor, but stuff. Here are some impressions - it's not everything I bought, but the most important. :D

I don't know if anyone of you knows the books "Lotta..." by Astrid Lindgren, but that little pink piglet reminded me so much of Lottas stuffed animal companion that I had to take it with me. (I'm searching for an image where you can see what I mean. :D Here it is: *klick* - Lottas piglet lies on the christmas tree. :D It looks nearly the same, doesn't it?)
Now I'm having two stuffed animals in my bed.. oh god, I see my collecting-madness incoming again.

Afterwards I decided to make a trip to a forest nearby to enjoy the beautiful weather today. I really miss some sunshine the last days, it was always very cloudy and rainy and uncomfortable.
Of course I took some pictures - I love these runes that are written on the stones, they're everyhwere in that part of the forest!

Oh, and I have a little announcement to make - since I'm learning Norwegian at university, I'm gonna try and write in Norwegian when I'm able to make correct sentences. English and German will also stay, of course, but I have to practice more often and I thought writing would be a good idea. It won't be anything complicated, I'm only learning for about two months now, but sometimes you will be able to read something Norwegian on this blog in the near future. :) I hope I won't screw up. :D
Now it's time for me to go to bed - tomorrow will be a horribly long day and I also have to do some homework, too.. meh.
God natt!
