My sister has great taste in music! I like to think I was the one who taught her, as I introduced her the fabolous Goo Goo Dolls, and other great bands/artists. But this time she got ahead of me, and discovered the greatness of the band called One Republic!

I was using the computer at home one day, and her playlist was playing in the WMP. I fell in love.

You have probably heard Timbaland feat. One republic – Apologize, and also probably One Republic – Stop & Stare.

Here are the lyrics for a few of my favourite songs, and I will try to find a music player for the blog as soon as I have time. So I can play you some of the wonderful songs of my new love, One Republic.

OneRepublic-Mercy 

Angel of Mercy
How did you find me?
Where did you read my story?
Pulled from the papers
Desperate and hardened
seeking a moment every fix

All I wanted to say
All I wanted to do
Is fall apart now
All I wanted to feel
I wanted to love
Its all my fault now
A Tradegy I fear

Angel of Mercy
How did you find me?
How did you pick me up again?
Angel of Mercy
How did you move me?
Why am I on my feet again?
And I see you

Whoa Whoa Whoa
I feel you
Whoa Whoa Whoa

Before just the daylight
Come and i stand by
Waiting to catch the quickest plane
Flying to nowhere
Is better than somewhere
That’s where i’ve been and nothing’s changed

All I wanted to say
All I wanted to do
Is fall apart now
All I wanted to feel
I wanted to love
Its all my fault now
A Tragedy for sure

Angel of Mercy
How did you find me?
How did you pick me up again?
Angel of Mercy
How did you move me?
Why am I on my feet again?
And I see you

Whoa
I feel you
Whoa

Im so lost in you
A tredgy seemed to be over now
A tradegy it seemed to be

Angel of Mercy
How did you find me?
How did you pick me up again?
Angel of Mercy
How did you move me?
Why am I on my feet again?
And I see you

whoa
I feel you
Whoa
I feel you
Oh Whoa
I feel you
Oh Oh Oh

Apologize

I’m holding on your rope,
Got me ten feet off the ground
I’m hearin what you say but I just can’t make a sound
You tell me that you need me
Then you go and cut me down, but wait
You tell me that you’re sorry
Didn’t think I’d turn around, and say…

It’s too late to apologize, it’s too late
I said it’s too late to apologize, it’s too late

I’d take another chance, take a fall
Take a shot for you
And I need you like a heart needs a beat
But it’s nothin new
I loved you with a fire red-
Now it’s turning blue, and you say…
“Sorry” like the angel heaven let me think was you
But I’m afraid…

It’s too late to apologize, it’s too late
I said it’s too late to apologize, it’s too late

Bridge (guitar/piano)

It’s too late to apologize, it’s too late
I said it’s too late to apologize, it’s too late
It’s too late to apologize, yeah
I said it’s too late to apologize, yeah-
I’m holdin on your rope, got me ten feet off the ground…

Stop & Stare

This town is colder now,
I think it’s sick of us
It’s time to make our move,
I’m shakin off the rust
I’ve got my heart set on anywhere but here
I’m staring down myself,
counting up the years
Steady hands, just take the wheel…
And every glance is killing me
Time to make one last appeal…
 for the life I lead

Stop and stare
I think I’m moving but I go nowhere
Yeah I know that everyone gets scared
But I’ve become what I can’t be, oh
Stop and stare
You start to wonder why you’re ‘here’ not there
And you’d give anything to get what’s fair
But fair ain’t what you really need
Oh, can u see what I see

They’re tryin to come back,

all my senses push
Un-tie the weight bags,
I never thought I could…
Steady feet, don’t fail me now
Gonna run till you can’t walk
But something pulls my focus out
And I’m standing down…

Stop and stare
I think I’m moving but I go nowhere
Yeah I know that everyone gets scared
But I’ve become what I can’t be, oh
Stop and stare
You start to wonder why you’re here not there
And you’d give anything to get what’s fair
But fair ain’t what you really need
Oh, you don’t need

What u need, what u need…

Stop and stare
I think I’m moving but I go nowhere
Yeah I know that everyone gets scared
But I’ve become what I can’t be
Oh, do u see what I see…

The past week my island has been transformed into the island of white, covered in snow, cold and pretty.
I don’t mind the changing in wather per se, but the wather on the island tends to change like, every three minutes or so. i look out the window, it’s snowing. Three minutes later, I look out the window, it’s raining.

At the moment it’s raining, and the roads are turning slippery. So, good thing I dont drive a truck or anything 😉

I should have posted some nice snow photos here for you, but I have non. If it starts snowing again, and the snow lasts, I’ll try to get my ass out to take some photos for you 🙂

Until then, you can browse the blog, sign my Stop Norwegian Whaling petition, give me ideas for films with foreign villains in them, and check out the PostSecret postcards 🙂 Have fun!

I’m at work at the moment, waiting for time to pass, of for something to happen. Seems they wanted me to take time to get to know the computer. Told me to ‘surf the net’ (whatever that means ;-))

Just been reading up on my favourite celebrity gossip blogs (www.justjared.com , www.wwtdd.com , www.idontlikeyouinthatway.com )
Seems Miley has been throwing the peace sign around again, and theres loads of stuff on Gossip Girl, as the stars of the show seem to be everywhere (!!!), and again UGLY Amy Winehouse pictures… Not much new then. However, there where some photos from the ‘the Hills’ premiere party, and I can’t wait to see the episode. i don’t know where i can watch it though, cause I’m in Norway and mtv restricts its websites ….. 😦
let me know if you know a ‘shortcut’ for me as to where i can watch the episodes 😉

In these times when people are deciding on where to go to uni./college(AM.), I thought I’d give a little recommandation for the university where I have spent the past (almost) three years, and will be graduating from (hopefully) this summer, Newcastle University/The University of Newcastle Upon-Tyne.
This recommandation is aimed both towards students from the UK, and from abroad, however, it will probably contain loads of information for ‘international students’.

I came to Newcastle in September 2005, not knowing really what I was doing there. I had been in Newcastle a few times before, only for short (REALLY short) visits, and i had NEVER even seen the university. I will nto bother you with the whole story of how and why and all that, but if you want to know just leave me a comment and I’ll tell the story in a seperate post, or e-mail it to you if you want 🙂

As an international student, I arrived before all the UK students, to attend ‘International student induction’. This is basically two days with information on the university, the student life, registration, sports clubs, societies, and life in England in general. It was a very nice way for us all to get into this very new way of life, in a new city, in a new country, before the CRAZINESS of Freshers Week started.
For a foreinger like me, Freshers week is a crazy, loud and a bit frightening tradition of most UK Uni’s. Its a ONE WEEK PARTY, where you can take trips to IKEA, go ice skating, go paintballing etc., get drunk, stay drunk, and party 24/7. For most freshers this is a great time to meet now people, do new things and party loads before Uni. REALLY starts. I wont say much more about it, as I believe all people will feel different things about it. One thing i can say is that, you do go by your own pace, and you can take it easy and just choose a few events to join in on. That way it doesn’t have to get completely overwhelming.

The quality of the university is great, and it is a highly rated university, especially within research and science. Again, this is a very individual thing, as peopel want to study different things. But if anyone wants information about the school of english, please dont hesitate in leaving me a comment or your e-mail adress. I’ll answer the questions the best I can 🙂

There are LOADS of societies you can join, from NUTS (drama), to Neighbours society (yes, the television show) and the international society (where I was Vice President my second year).

Student life is great, and Newcastel is a great city to live in. It is a very compact city, and you can walk to just abotu anywhere in the city centre. It is the party capital of the UK, and I can stand by that statement. No matter what day and what time, there is always a party somewhere, and no matter what night you go out in town, there is always a great night out to be happened 😉

If you have any questions, comments etc., please do leave me a comment, and/or you e-mail adress, and I’ll answer the best I can. Choosing a university, a city, and an education is very important for the next years to come, and for therest of your future. I highly recommend Newcastle University!!!

At least I’m not so far behind with this post. New cards up on the PostSecret web-site/blog.
http://www.postsecret.blogspot.com

Here is my pick of the week:

still.jpg

I like this postcard cause it reminds me of people around me in general. Especially my mother (obvisously), but also other family and friends. They see pictures from earlier in their lives and they always say : look how beautiful I was.
And I always agree, but I also always think that they are beautiful now, too. Even when people are old, I can still see, by how their personalities reflect through them, how beautiful they are and have always been. And I always tell them. Even though they don’t agree, I know it makes them feel good 🙂 like they should 🙂

I am sorry for being such a lousy poster lately. This is what happens everytime I go home. I don’t e-mail my friends back and I hardly ever use the computer. I guess in a way its a good thing, cause I spend way to much time on the computer when I’m ‘on my own’ in England.
The past week my parents and Tobias have been camping, and I’ve had my sisters to myself here at home. We’ve eaten LOADS!!!! seen a lot of films, and eaten some more. Einar came home and watched some horror films with me Friday night. Mette joined us for DISTURBIA, while she decided not to share WHEN A STRANGER CALLS with us. I think she just watched DISTURBIA cause she ‘LOVES’ Shia !!! hehe …I don’t blame her, I ‘LOVE’ him too 😉

Thursday the family gathered in the tent outside the camping wagon, for some COLD quality family time. Went to the cinema in the evening with my sisters and Einar. Saw SPIDERWICK CHRONICLES- It was good, but everything happened so fast and all at once. I haven’t read the books, but am I right in guessing the film was based on more than one book ?!?

It has been snowing for most of the week, but its then melted or rained away. However, today has been a very nice day, and the snow just wont stop falling. The neighbourhood is ALL WHITE now…it’s so pretty. I love snow 😀
I even went skiing with my sisters today. It didn’t go all to well, cause I haven’t skiied in five years, and the skiis where very moody. But, I only fell once 😉

Me and the lovely sisters have been filming loads the past few days, and I am trying to make both a music video, and possibly a horror film. not both in once …. It might take time before I post the video online though, cause I have a life and cant’ spend all my time editing and trying to make sense of order etc.
But I do expect to PREMIERE it on YouTube before I go back to England. So stay close, and check in every now and again. I will be keeping you posted on the progress 🙂

You will want to make this BIG if you want to be able to read it, but it’s worth it.
I’m sure this is a thought that might be a familiar one to many people. it certainly is to me. i know I’m too young to get married (I at least feel like I am), but sometimes I wonder if I ever will, cause I can’t even love myself sometimes, so how can anyone else love me ?

ungreatful.jpg

I think this is one we all might have felt one time or another. We get gifts that we don’t like, or that we know we would never really use. But then we use them anyway, cause we dont want to be ungreatful. With me its like I sometimes feel guilty that people waste money on presents for me, and then I dont like them. I would rather see them save the money, or maybe take me out for a meal 😉 but I know the gifts are given with great love and care for me, and I NEVER say that i don’t like the presents!

beautiful.jpg

Every girls secret (almost every girl…)!! I want to be able to leave the house with no make up and feel beautiful. We all do. But only a few girls seem to be able to do that. Im not so sure its really about the face or the make up though, it’s about confidence.
