Hello all wonderful readers out there!
I'm back home after a lovely week in Lofoten. I met a lot of nice people, some old friends and some new friends. I've always felt that the school in Norway is my own little secret place. It's this place I went away to for two years and it's always been tricky to explain what kind of life I lived there.
It's this funny little bubble with 100 young people where you laugh until you cry every day and every day feels like one wonderful week of fun because things happen all the time. The environment is of course not for everyone, it can especially be tricky if you're not a very social person. Then you can end up feeling lonely instead of being a part of this big grouphang.
I'm however not very good at small talk. If I meet someone who's the friend or the sibling of someone I know I immediately talk to them as if I've known them for a long time. Sometimes this works out... and sometimes it doesn't. Haha, not everyone appreciates my weird sense of humor.
One amazing thing that happened while I was away last week is that I really has time to clear my head and make a really big decision for the future. When people ask me if I'll dig deeper into photography, illustration or design I've always been like ooh you know...I don't know... I can't make up my mind.
But now I know, I have to give photography a chance. So, as from june (when school is over) I'll pour my heart into trying to get my foot into the freelance world. And lucky for you, you'll just be able to sit back and follow me while I'll fail or succeed... haha.
I've noticed that studying design has only turned me really bitter and all our ecological studies have really made my stomach turn by the thought that I might have to be a part of developing products that help build our garbage piles in the world. But it's not just that, design has never really made me happy. But photography has, for over 10 years! So I'm not gonna throw it away before I at least give it a try.
So I've finally piled it up, a plan for the rest of 2012. Photography will be work. Illustration will be my hobby. Design will be my fall back. I'm excited, I always feel nervous about everything but I don't really feel nervous about this, so I think that means I've made the right choice.
