From all the colors,
sunset picks the best ones.
It doesn’t steal them, but they
vanish as it goes down.
Closed in a moment,
in forever won’t be found.
I hope you guys are all healthy and staying positive. Or at least trying. If not then play the tune that I uploaded, closed your eyes and imagine you’re somewhere peaceful, the wind is slightly blowing and there’s nothing to worry about. Maybe that will help.
Thank you for reading and see you guys soon! Before I finish though, I would like to give a shoutout to two of the fellow followers because I’ve noticed, already long time ago, that they really support me, always first to like, even if the content isn’t always good. So New Lune and DirtySciFiBuddha thank you for your support.
I haven’t been feeling very well for the past two weeks, and because I’m just stuck at home, it’s hard to find the motivation to write.

We wanted to check out one church in the middle of nothing but it turns out the church was worth no effort whatsoever. But the forest around definitely was.

I know this topic is everywhere right now, but I had to write about it, especially since there might be a lot of confusion or misunderstandings out there. And for the record, I have no profit from writing about it whatsoever. (I won’t write about symptoms and things like that, because I don’t want to repeat all the information’s already available. This is just a post for those living in Norway).
Continue reading “Norway during the COVID-19.”
Our trip was just before the country decided to put everyone who has been traveling abroad between the 27th of February and the 12th of March into 14-days quarantine. As for today (when I’m writing this; Friday), we have to sit at home until Monday, so it’s not so bad.

Aviophobia, aerophobia or just flying phobia is one of the most common fears people have. I used to be quite ignorant about all this thing until I got it myself.
Continue reading “Fear of flying.”
On our short stay in Slovenia, we had a couple of beautiful, springish days and we made sure to make most out of it.
Continue reading “Sunny walks in Slovenia.”
I wasn’t writing about languages for quite some time, and because I kinda have education in the area of linguistics I figured out it could be helpful if I share some tips with you guys.
Continue reading “Tips to speak any language.”
I finally got to travel and I would normally be excited about it but…
Continue reading “Going away for couple of days & coronavirus.”
A little bit about the region that I live in, Innlandet (it used to be called Hedmark) from my perspective. Also, trying out a new style of writing.
Continue reading “A short essay about Norway.”
Why Nilsen again, you may ask? Well, I bought myself a Nilsen’s poem collection by Stig Holmås from 1975 and I like quite a lot of those poems. Why wouldn’t I translate them then? Here are the poems Møte and Fedreland from the collection På Stengrunn.

The sky is blue, birds are singing and grass is looking greener than the last months. Is it February?
Continue reading “Too warm for winter.”
A poet who lived in the between the wars period, a communist but also a very talented author. Here’s again my translation of one of the Rudolf Nilsen’s poems from “På stengrunn (1925).
Continue reading “Rudolf Nilsen’s “På stengrunn”.”
Not birthday yet, but 7 months will surely go fast as heck.
Continue reading “Not ready for 24.”
I wrote the poem in three languages (or rather, I wrote in one and translated twice). Enjoy!
Continue reading “Dusty restaurant – a poem.”
Here’s me with my plan trying to be more minimalistic in 2020.
Continue reading “Minimalism in 2020.”
To be organized is the best tool to fight with the monstrosity of laziness.
Continue reading “Organize the laziness.”
Exactly one year ago (maybe one day difference) I did 2018’s recap. So to follow the “tradition”, here are the last 12 months.
Continue reading “2019’s recap.”
We have come to the last Blogmas and it’s exactly on the last day of the year. As last time, just pictures.
Continue reading “Blogmas 8: New Year in Poland.”
I’ve been away since Monday and didn’t write anything in advance, so here are a couple of last days in pictures.
Continue reading “Blogmas 7: Christmas in Slovenia.”
I didn’t do any “deep” post in a while, and that’s because I have been quite under the weather for most of the time. However, this is a very important topic that I need to write about.
Continue reading “Blogmas 6: Insecurity.”
There will be some changes next year (not only blog-wise).
Continue reading “Blogmas 5: Falling snow & life update.”
So, I’ve asked for free last Saturday and luckily I got it. Because we never have free together like that, we decided to drive to Hamar to spend some time and in the evening we went to “julebord” (more about it later).
Continue reading “Blogmas 4: Back in Hamar.”
It’s not that type of blogmas that you would expect, but I can’t really write about things that aren’t interesting to me – so here’s a poem.
Continue reading “Blogmas 3: River – a poem.”
Not much is going on lately, as you can clearly see by looking at recent posts, but the weather outside is making up for it. Or rather, making the view.
Continue reading “Blogmas 2: Nacreous clouds & amazing sunsets.”
When people think about Norway, they see this cold, wintery land of aurora borealis and moose slowly strolling through the huge forests. Well, it’s not so far from the truth, besides that no one mentions non-existence of Sun or melting snow every few weeks because of possible global warming.
Continue reading “Blogmas 1: 30 days of no Sun.”
Even though I’m in Norway, a country where prices make you quite a minimalist themselves, but still if you’re online, you get attacked by Black Friday.
Continue reading “Black Friday? No, thank you.”
Part two of our weekend-journey to the astonishing, old, and surprisingly not-so-big capital Dublin.
Continue reading “Dublin, Ireland .”
Ireland, (Éire in Irish Gaelic) is a big Island next to the United Kingdom, but it’s not a part of it. It’s important to remember that, because not everyone speaking English is actually from England and Irish people might find that offensive.
Continue reading “Dublin, Ireland .”
You could assume I speak English, maybe Norwegian but what else? Is it even worth to learn languages? What do I think about studying languages?
Continue reading “How many languages do I speak?”
Short days, harsh rains and wind, the wind that blows without break, just breaking branches alongside its way.
Continue reading “October.”
A poem for the rainy days of October. First Norwegian (original), then its translation in English.
Continue reading “Autumn’s rain.”
All those tips are gathered from my own experience, and someone else’s experience could be exactly the opposite, so take that into consideration. Anyway, enjoy reading!

Let’s not beat around the bush and just start part two. Enjoy!
Continue reading “Nice .”
Well, I had hard times with the title of the post because of its ambiguity. However, you can definitely say that Nice is nice.
Continue reading “Nice .”
It’s been a long time. I must say it’s hard to come back to writing posts after even a short break. If I won’t push myself to do it regularly, then it’s like there are no posts anymore. Anyway, back to the topic. The shorter name for this region is Region Sud (“sud” means “south”). Before I will start with travel posts about the cities that I visited on my holidays, here’s a short introduction.
Continue reading “Shortly about Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur in France.”
Just a short note about my current break from blog. I’m currently in Nice, France, so blog posts will be little delayed, hopefully next week. Thank you for understanding!
To a place 15 minutes away from the old one.
Continue reading “We’ve moved out.”
So I wrote another poem in Norwegian. Don’t worry – I also translated it into English.
Continue reading “Livets ironi – poem.”
A small poem for an afternoon coffee.
Continue reading “Dreams – a poem.”
Just kidding, I like it here. But some things can be annoying sometimes, like everywhere.

If anyone ever told you that 20s are all about enjoying youth and freedom from school and parents then they were partly lying.
Continue reading “Early 20s ain’t so easy.”
2 years on the blog passed by like a blink of an eye. And I could say I didn’t expect I would still be here after all this time. But here I am, scheduling another post after another, week after week.
Continue reading “Thank you for 200 followers.”
Working 49 hours last week I didn’t really have time to write anything. So here you have just a small “Thursday-poem”.
Continue reading “A July poem.”
There’s a lake located in between my previous work and a city called Kirkenær. I always drove past it without any reflection on it, but this time I stopped to take some photos.
Continue reading “Frysjøen.”
June was one of the most confusing months for me so far. I moved to Norway, got a job (which turned out to be a complete mistake) and had to switch in those 30 days from student life to adult life.
