Hey guys and gays.
So those of you who also watch KingKaarle might already know our plans of me moving to Finland. Well, I'm finally here and our new apartment is in the process of becoming fabulous! Filled with colours and monsters and madness. And paintings of chopped up grannies in the kitchen.
I moved here last friday, so it hasn't been a week yet. I still have a voice in the back of my head which says I'm just on a holiday as usual and will go back to Norway in a week or two. This all feels weirdly unreal to me. Or maybe more like shit just became incredibly real after 6 years in a long distance relationship, I guess it's understandable.
I am so happy to have Kaarle helping me with all the paperwork and whatnot. Looking up information, knowing where we need to go to do and register what. Being a handyman with the apartment putting up shelves and curtains and drilling the walls and such madness. I'm really thankful and feel so safe to have him around
The language is and will probably always be the biggest barrier. I'm very excited to learn it, and even more looking forward to the day I can actually do some basic communication, but oh man... this is the language of fucking aliens, what the hell were they thinking when they made this madness
The last two years after my studies ended I have lived at home with my parents to work and save up money. I was really grateful that they allowed me to stay for free, without paying rent. It made me able to save up a lot for this move. Sadly, during the last year, things got more difficult because of my father's drinking problems. Living at home became a lot of tiptoeing around and constantly feeling anxious and frustrated with the situation, which was also one of the reasons I wanted to move to Finland right away when the chance opened up.
So yeah, I've been pretty down in the past months. I just want to get back to my old writing habits and having projects I'm passionate about and all that. I just need to drag myself out of the whole situation back in Norway. Mom comes for a visit to see me and Kaarle get married in June, so it's nice to know that I will see her again soon
That's pretty much what I have to say for now. I recently started working on a new deviantart-project. One I think will be a lot of fun both for me as a writer and for people reading it and no, it's not yet another endless Lordi-fanfiction, don't worry! It's just something I've wanted to do for a long time and now, if I'm going to remain a jobless freak for a while, have time and motivation to do besides my main projects.
So that's pretty much what's going on at the moment. Take care!
