Crazy

I'm doing this crazy thing these days. It's so crazy and so simple I cry when it's done.
This crazy little thing is - and yes I do get I sound like Nike when saying this: I just do it!

 I see something and I make it. I want a certain photography job or photoshoot, I do the call that is needed. And it's huge for me, cause up until now it's been something I've been dead serious scared of doing. I mean, last week I called up an agency that has photographers shooting Kate Moss and asked if they wanted to see little naive, young and rookie me. Never ever would I imagine myself doing it. And maybe that is what is needed. Forget all those stupid thoughts about what could go wrong and just press that dial-button. It all ends positive in some way anyway. 


And also I'm going crazy on the DIY-part of Pinterest, oh my god. It would have been embarrasing if I had any shame.

Here are some pictures I've saved in a folder called "word". Cause that's what I'm thinking when I see them.






Oh and this just cause it's funny cause it's true haha

Train of thoughts

So I know there isn't all that much happy stuff going on this blog lately. It's strangely little of it in general I'm noticing. Maybe it's just the way I'm screwed together - pretty optimistic but still kinda dark all the time.

It's so easy to end up there. Almost too easy. But then again, nothing inspires art more than depressing thoughts. I'll admit, the trip to Thailand was harder than expected for reasons I can't write about in a blog. But what I managed to get out of it - by my neverending positive view on a negitive episode - is an explotion of ideas for my art. Every night I sat on the porch of my hotelroom and I cried. One night I cried for several hours, just letting the tears fall down in a sad but calming way. The neighbours next door (which was a peculiar family of four not sitting next to eachother and not talking. Families are funny, I've never understood them) sat at the porch right next to me but I still cried, watching up at the sky and stars and thought about all the ones that had died.  How fucked up this world actually is, using up all our energy and time on getting money at a job we hate, at a state of mind which isn't were we want to be. We live this one life in such a short amount of time and all we do is things that makes us cry and hate our lives. I work my ass off. I really do. I work six days a week at a clothing store which makes me so tired because it's not only a big store, but it's also a lot of personalities clashing to handle. And when I then get home, I'm going home to the biggest chaos ever. One thing is handling my business which frankly can't be called that much of a business just yet. It's like three jobs a year and still I'm up to my knees in shit that needs to be dealt with. And of coures in the end the daily basics - getting home, trying to cook a healthy dinner, loose those 10kg, find time to work out, clean up so the roommate won't recent me as much as my last roommates. I'm kind of feeling like I'm drowning at the moment. Oh and yeah where is the time to meet friends and go out? It's barely there.

I have decided to be dead honest about myself on this blog. Because this is me and I don't really feel like there is anything worth hiding. I want to show that being a finished educated photographer isn't all as easy as "just get a job, why are you here in this clothing store?". Am actually starting to think of stop being polite when answering that question, I've gotten it twice a day for the last three years and it's fucking tiresome and useless and everyone that asks it understand that by asking that question (and also coming up with briliant ideas on how I could do it) isn't giving me an epiphany of loose threads I just didn't know how to put together at ALL. Get your shit together, I've been in this game for years.



On the other hand I am pleased to say that I'm not depressed you guys. Haha. This post just got goddamn depressing. I'm alive and well. Just a little overwhelmed and not really sure where to push out the thoughts. Have gotten so many ideas on what to do instead of working full time, so that is a proof that it's not going well for me work-related. Which is not a good thing. And that reflects my whole train of thought. As soon as a solution has showed I might get back on track in moving in the direction I want to go and not being so darn depressing.
Cause I'm not really like this. Though my new thing seem to be an explotion of feelings evolving into me being strict and telling people off. It's happened more than twice this last month. Don't know what that is evolving into though.

What are my dreams and where did they go













What is this rut I'm in. How do I get out - cause I want to get out so bad I am booking flights for every available date I got. I am running away and this is not how I want my life to be.

Selfie-Queen





Took some pictures of myself in my bedroom yesterday, to test out the new location (because I've just moved in to a new place).

Packe



Going through my old pictures and trying to optimalize my portfolio, and on that note I re-edited some of the pictures I took of my friend Patrik back in desember.

Oh and I have a shoot on sunday, yay!









I long for photoshoots again, something that releases my mind and right now my mind is on my sexuality. I want to take pictures of men, explore my feelings for these wonderful perfect, annoying creatures that I love and hate so intense at the same time. How I want them to pull me in closer, hands on my hips and make me crazy. I want to show my love for the divine bodies and minds that makes my knees weak and my eyes teary, how much I love the feeling they give me. How the love fullfills every inch of my soul and heart and mind. I feel lucky being able to feel this intense and I want to explore it more. I need to do more shoots, I need to get this feeling out. I need to get these thoughts out in the right direction, but I don't really know how.

Came home from Thailand this morning. 
Will post pictures and write more about it soon. 

Many new feelings and thoughts came on this trip, maybe it suits me best to not have internet easily available all the time - and to have a balcony with a good temperature so I can sit down for hours and just think. It's been long since I had this much inspiration to do art and explore myself.

Summer part One





Some pictures from the weekend with visit from my family up in Trondheim.
Now it's pack-all-I-can-manage before I'm leaving Norway for two weeks in Thailand.
So goddamn excited, feels like I haven't had a vay-cay like ever. 
(I even bought a underwater-bag, so look out for fun-pics everybody!)

Window



So I ended up taking some reflected selfies - my secret favourite actually. 
I love in-the-window-at-night-selfies. The colours of a night-lit street is so magical.
