SATURDAY IS WORK DAY - AT LEAST THIS ONE


Hello!

Sorry about all the computer/work mood photos lately but that is where i am right now. Trying to make some things happen for the blog,and me. I think i am finally in the right head space to go at it, and feel like i can contribute something of interest. It has been a long journey, but this year i will make some small things happen or BIG you never know until you try. So that is why this weekend will be spent trying to come up with something clever,and original for an article next week.


Back to work for this girl.

HAPPY FRIDAY

HAPPY FRIDAY EVERYONE




How is everyone?

You know another week is over, and yet another Friday night has come with a movie, and some Pizza. 
I have pretty much spent the week going to the gym a few times, and working my butt off like i am sure  so many others do as well. 

Just finished watching a movie about an expedition to Mount Everest back in 1996, and it was an expedition where everything went wrong, and many people died in an effort to get to the top. 
Such a good movie, but oh so sad..i was crying my eyes out…

As far as the weekend goes it will be pretty chill, and laid back!

Have an amazing weekend.

BOOKS AND MORE COFFEE


CRIME ON THE RADIO.


In Norway we have something called Norwegian crime radio (radioteateret) on the Norwegian stateradio. There is something just so calming about listening to the radio on a rainy day with some tea.
They send different books and plays, and everything is done with the out most love  and attention to detail. I love listening to the radio, and make my own pictures of the people speaking and the things that
happens…The podcast i have linked to here is a book written by Maria Gripe
I read all her books in high school,and even called her up for an interview when i had to do a book report…Her books are just amazing…and made me love crime books above all…

Every weekend i spent reading her books, and  going to the local library to borrow even more…

Books are just the best pass time activity..you are never bored...

CAREER ADVICE FOR A BUSY GIRL: WHY INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY NEEDS MOREWOMEN

CAREER ADVICE FOR A BUSY GIRL: WHY INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY NEEDS MORE WOMEN:



So recently i have been reading more and more posts on the web stating the fact that IT  - Information Technology (at least in Norway) needs more women. That apparently there are WAY to many men graduating from different universities with this education then there are women. And THAT is a problem on so many levels...

Firstly what it means is that when it comes to new technology, IT  ,and computer science women are falling behind. This in turn means that as they fall further back  men are having a bigger say in how the world is developing,and in what direction we are headed..Because lets face it..new technology is here to stay, and as women we should learn as much as we can to help spire change, and not go with the flow! That is why i am so in love with initatives like Girls Who Code,and in Norway The ODA network.They are both good examples of initiatives created by women to help other women get more computer savy. 

"In middle school, 74% of girls express interest in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM), but when choosing a college major, just 0.4% of high school girls select computer science".
- source: Girls who code - 
This means at least to me that from middle school to University girls/women are not told/stimulated into thinking that having a degree within Computer Science is what they should do or that somehow it is not "good enough" or that this course is not for women…
In every society under the sun women are in 2016 being told that they aught to use parts of their body to get ahead in life even a "progressive" country like mine..equality between the sexes is all well, and good in theory, but when it comes to reality it is many cases not to be found...
This to me is so sad! 
What are we teaching our girls?

HAVE A NICE DAY

LIFESTYLE: WAYS TO STAY IN LOVE WITH YOUR PARTNER AFTER YEARS OF BEING TOGETHER.

WAYS TO STAY IN LOVE WITH YOUR PARTNER AFTER YEARS OF BEING TOGETHER:



So we all know being in a relationship with the same partner for years (i am talking 10 years or more) can be a challenge both for you and him. There are after all more regular days the honeymoons, and that is why i for one think it is so incredibly important to do what you can to keep the romance alive. Romance means different things to different people,and some men/women do not have a romatic bone at all. But either way in my opnion in a relationship you should not only experience the Mondays you should also make Monday into a Saturday from time to time. By the last thing i mean.there are small things we all can do to make a difference, and help create a healthy loving life with your partner of choice.

These are my tips:


  1. Do not walk around in your comfy clothes all day,but dress up for your partner from time to time. And this goes both ways.
  2. Take care of yourself either by going to the gym a few times a week or by booking a facial when you can.
  3.  Be sure to say whats on your mind, and be honest - AT ALL TIME. This for me is such a BIG key. Because after all how can you have a good relation if you are not completely honest with your wants and needs.
  4. You are always to individuals in a partnership, and it is therefor so incredibly important to take care of you. Only that way will you and your partner stay together (at least that is my opinion).
  5. Surprise him with a gift from time to time..my advice is..make it a little every day "gift" that you know he/she will like. My man for instance is crazy with beer after getting a case of 24 different beers for his advents calendar in 2015. That is why i every now and then make a pit stop at the store, and buy something new for him. I have never seen a grown man so excited :)
  6. Really listen when the two of you talk..you should ask yourself this question..do you want to be right? Or do you want to be happy?
  7. Do not have a ego when you are in a relationship with someone you truly love..leave it at the door.
  8. Do not forget the everyday romance like kissing, hugging..and whatever else you can think of.
  9. Do things together, and share interests.
These are my tips.
What are yours?
