Let’s talk about work.

Everybody has to do some job to get through life, earn money, buy food, have a roof overhead, and cover other basic things. However, there’s always been a tendency in our society to judge people based upon the way they earn their living. Let’s talk about exactly that.

The thin line between integration and imitation.

A couple of words on the topic that was in my mind for quite a while. Don’t worry, even though the title looks like a bachelor, it is not a scientific paper.

Welcome, spring.

The old, dirty snow has finally melted (I mean besides those big hills that snow cleaning machine made on the corners of streets, those will probably disappear at the end of May), so the springtime is finally on. Besides temperatures, they still go to minus from time to time, but that’s typisk norsk vær (typical Norwegian weather).

Woke up to a winter wonderland.

There are only a few times in our adult lives when we feel the same as when we felt in our childhood. 20 cm of snow (around) is one of the rare things that makes us smile like kids (before the bitter reality comes: cleaning all that yourself).

One sunset – a poem.

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.

Norway during the COVID-19.

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).
