He’s a miracle!

When you’re not feeling well, and once the migraines sort of go away and it’s just tiredness (even though you’ve slept for hours and hours everyday), there isn’t much to do at home except watching TV from the sofa. One of my favourite pastimes is watching series. I know, it’s sort of lame. I could say one of my favourite things to do is… I don’t know, something much cooler, but the truth is I love watching series. I don’t normally watch actual TV. I’m not one to watch the news, or discussion programs, and all that, or QI, or Top Gear, as my brother does. This past week I watched a few episodes of Ninja Warrior UK and other variations, which I discovered make me feel super stressed, but I’m not really into that sort of thing. Series, on the other hand, well, I could spend hours in front of my TV or laptop, watching episode after episode. At any given time, I’m following at least 3-4 different ones. At the moment, we have …

Fine tuning my photography

Once again, I’m working from home today because of not feeling that great. I am thinking about cancelling the charity house tonight, and just stay here, but guilt isn’t letting me. After all, the only thing I really need to do is stay there and sleep, but I have the feeling it’s not going to be a good night tonight. I have been thinking about photography quite a lot lately. And graphic design. Those are two of the main topics that I keep returning from time to time (not necessarily mentioned here every time, of course), and how I would like to pursue them more often. At work, or rather on the side, I’m currently working on a poster for some social activities, which I’m doing at home in the evenings because it’s not really my job, and I get very sidetracked whenever I play around colours and fonts! Since I started watching more and more Photoshop tutorials, I’m beginning to realise that the photographs I take aren’t necessarily that terrible, it’s just that I …

Book Club #7 – The Girl Who Saved The King Of Sweden

As much as I hate having to type out the long title of this past month’s book, The Girl Who Saved The King Of Sweden, by Jonas Jonasson has been a great addition to the book club. This book is, despite what many people might think, one of the most interesting books I’ve read in a while. Normally, I would go on writing about everything that happens in the story, but I’m thinking you can find countless summaries online. Instead, let me tell you about what I thought when reading this book. I’ve never read The One-Hundred Year Old Man Who Climbed Out Of A Window (typing that out just tired me, let me rest a moment…), by the same author, but many people have told me it is a great book. Also, a lot of people who have read both books out there were a bit disappointing by Jonasson’s second book. In my case, I have absolutely no reference, other than the knowledge he has written an equally long-titled book. So, as usual (do …

Tired of feeling tired

What is it about mood and writing that seem to go so close together? Why is it that when I’m not in the mood these days, I don’t seem to be able to write, not even moody pieces, as I used to? Lately it seems that my life is a bit of a roller coaster, in terms of mood and energy. I don’t go all the way up or all the way down (usually), but I can see it going as waves. The part that seems consistent lately is the lack of energy to write, not only on my novel, but also here, which is a bit sad. I know I haven’t run out of things to say, it’s just that I don’t feel like typing stuff. I’ve even thought about doing some short posts, or maybe just one-photograph posts, just to keep publishing stuff regularly, but it’s just not happening. A friend recently told me that I sounded like I was depressed, and I’ve been wondering if she’s right ever since we spoke. True, …
