Yep, since I decided that I am gonna try to make graphics more often again, I though I'd keep all my resources in a post of its own...
So, any brushes, textures, images and other stuff I have used, are from these people/communities/websites:

 This weekend has been horrible! 

I just don't understand how a person can do something like this?! How can someone be that cruel?! I mean, how can you shoot more than 80 teenagers?! One thing is to to plant a bomb near a government building, but executing more than 80 kids and teenagers that a whole other level of cruel. Of course, the bomb is bad too, don't get me wrong, but I just don't understand how anyone can just go to a camp full of politically active kids, kids that care and are passionate, kids full of visions and hopes and dreams, and just execute them. There are no words for how fucked up that guy is. And, how horrible it must be for the kids who survived this as well. Imagine having gone through that. Imagine having a guy, dressed as a police man, just shooting at you and your friends. My heart goes out to all of those kids on that island and their loved ones. And of course all of those who was killed, wounded and affected by the bombing here in Oslo as well. 

I was downtown, at work when the bomb went off. Luckily, I work about a mile away from where the bomb went off. We did hear the explosion, but at first we just thought it was thunder or construction work or something. 15 minutes later, our boss comes inn and tells us that there had been a bomb downtown, but the government buildings. I was so scared, I felt sick. Of course you think about how horrible it is for those who was at the site, but automatically a part of your brain starts worrying if there's gonna be more bombs. I just wanted to go home, seeing as I live a bit outside of town. But, I didn't know if I wanted to get on the subway or not, coz that's always a target. And then the online papers started talking about two more bombs still being around. It was so scary. And when I got home, we started hearing about the situation at the camp. I was glued to the telly for  hours, just watching the same images of downtown Oslo looking like a war zone and the horrible reports from the camp. When I went to bed at midnight, they police said that there was about 9 or 10 people killed at the camp. When I woke up, they had found 80 dead kids so far. 

Today I found out that a girl, who used to be my neighbour when we were kids, was one of the kids that didn't make it out of the camp alive. I've know here family all my life, I was friends with her big sister, and both of her parents have been my teachers at some point. I just cannot imagine how much pain they must be going through now. It is so unfair. 

Just thinking about all of this makes me cry. Norway hasn't seen anything like this since world war 2. I must say that our Prime Minister has done a really good job handling this. He has shown us what a strong leader he is. I am so proud of my country and of our leaders for spreading love and compassion instead of hate and rage after this. Our Prime Minister said that we are going to fight this with more democracy and openness. That is the right way to fight this. If we can stand together and show that man, and everyone else that is thinking about doing the same, that things like that will not silence us or change us, it will only make us stronger, make us believe in our country and what we stand for. 

Someone said this, and it perfectly sums up what I feel now: 

"If one man can show so much cruelty and hate, think of how much love we can show together."

Yeh, I just needed to write a bit about this. It probably won't be the last time I write about it...

This year I will watch 100 movies, and read 20 books.
Also, see at least 10 different stage productions.

I will include stuff I've seen/read before, but it will only count as 1 this year even if I see/read it 10 times this year

Movies and books are grades with this scale:
★★★★★★ - Awesome!
★★★★★☆ - Great
★★★★☆☆ - Good
★★★☆☆☆ - Decent
★★☆☆☆☆ - Watch/read only if nothing better to do
★☆☆☆☆☆ - Incredibly bad, not worth watching/reading

Yeh, nothing too exciting has happned, so I just haven't gotten around to update until now...

I'm busy with life and school now, and working out occationally. I'm at school from around 8 until 4 every day, and I actually get a lot of studying done. Also, it is nice to get up early and go to bed early. But, I need to actually be better at writing papers and such, and also be better at working with the actual laws. So, that is my goals for the coming weeks.

Ok, been almost a week since my last update!
Here's a summary!

- Seen Mamma Mia two times this week, so seen it a total of 8 times. LOVE it more and more each time I see it.

- Had a Meryl-marathon with my friend, Anne, on Friday. We saw Kramer vs Kramer, Sophie's Choice, A Series of Unfortunate Events (lolz at Jim Carrey being a dino) and Death Becomes Her. :)

- Finally finished Out of Africa by Karen Blixen, and I really liked the book. It's totally different from the movie, but it's such a wonderful book which really makes you wanna move to Africa and get yourself a farm. Highly recommend it!

- Started reading Sophie's Choice, and can already a few pages in tell that it's a good book.

- Haven't worked in a week, and it's been really nice to have the weekend off since I haven't had a weekend off since June.

- Spent a few days at my grandma's place. Always nice :)

- Been trying to take care of my body. Using a sugar scrub while showering and taking warm baths. Aaaand, I've found a way to get that soft skin only babies have. And, it doesn't contain "flakes of 24 carat gold or extract of donkey testicle"... Use baby oil right after you come out of the shower, put on a robe and wait until it's dry before applying aloe vera. Gives you really soft skin!!!
Plus, Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Intensive Moisturizing Hand Treatment on you hands... I LOVE Elizabeth Arden's Eight Hour Creams!

- Today I visited my old school. There are a few of the students from last year who's gonna stay there this year as well, and I visited them before all the new students arrive tomorrow. Was sooo weird to be back at that place. After all, it was my home for 9 months...

Enough said, and wow, I haven't rambled that much :P

OMG! Just a quick little update to tell ya guys that I officially have a new fave movie; Mamma Mia!
Seriously, it's sooooo good. I had bloody high expectations since I've been waiting for the movie since it was announced that Meryl Streep was gonna star in it, and omg, it went beyond everything I could imagine! If a movie could give me an orgams (well, obviously not couting porn, not that I watch a lot of that either, and now I'm just rambling), this would be it! I sat with a big grin on my face the entire time, well, not when the sad part were, then I was crying! And omg, Meryl looks like a freaking Greek Goddess in this movie, she's soooooo gorgeous and she delivers such a stunning preformance! Her version of The Winner Takes It All rivals the original! I looove the soundtrack as well, bought it today. I hate the fact that they didn't include the movie versions of Chiquitita, Waterloo (ok, it's not important for the story, but it's such an amazing song) and I Do, I Do I Do, I Do, I Do (since it's obviuosly really important to the story). But anyway, you guys should go see this movie if you haven't seen it. It's a delightful experience from beginning to end! I'm gonna go see it again on Wednesday, and I can hardly wait!
