Two weeks ago my girlfriend and I, with two friends went to my cabin for a short weekend to pick bilberries (we call them blueberries in Norway). I’m usually not a big fan of berry picking, but I’m glad we went, as the jam we made is delicious.
There where literally berries every where. Even when we parked our car we could just reach out and start picking.
I really love European bilberries, the American blueberries can’t compete! Even though they are smaller, the taste is a lot better!

I started school last week, so the last week have been quiet hectic. As one of my new years resolutions is to read more of the curriculum, I’ve been busy reading. I even started a week in advance! That’s never happen before, sadly I read the wrong chapters. I started at the beginning of the book, but class started in the middle. Now you might be wondering what kind of class I’m talking about. This year I take “Introduction to metaphysics and the philosophy of consciousness”, “Functional programming” (which is about Scheme) and “Computational linguistics” (which is about common LISP). It was the philosophy class I started reading in advance, it’s really interesting.
Other then that I’ve started school I’ve been meeting new people, that’s always fun and interesting. I’ve also meet some old friends, one which have been in China for the last semester. So it was really nice to meet her again. She had done something wonderful with her hair. So now she looks really cute.
So about now post Saturday and Sunday. Sorry about that. I’ve been away to my cabin with my brother, his wife and her sister. I originally hoped to chill out and read a lot about metaphysics and read the hundred page from ”Der Zauberberg” (The Magic Mountain) by Thomas Mann, but no. Didn’t get to read before Sunday, but it’s my fault. We had such a good time that I didn’t want to be boring and read. I’ve also found out that I’m not going to finish “Der Zauberberg”, it’s too boring. I also tried a new board game called “Mexican Train”, that was a lot of fun. So I’m putting it on my “to buy list”.
Not sure how often I will get to blog this week, but hopefully every day. At least I’ll post a video. Bye…
It’s time to tell you a bit about my last days. I’m finally done with all my exams and my summer vacation have started. Which means that I can do what ever I want. I’ve also got my work plan for this summer and they (Smart Club) want me to work a lot. Everyday with of course two days of every week. That means a lot of money, but also not that much time of. That sucks, but guess it’s all about growing up. No more two months summer vacation. Other than working, I’m going to practice my skills with Java, and I’m aiming to make three games and one demo (for Solskogen 09). The first game is the Chaogotchi game that I’ve mention before. Need to get it done, and the two others is probably going to use the same engine, but it is two project that I’m working on with two different groups. Going to be fun! Planning to start tomorrow to play around with some 3d cubes and such, and we’ll see how it goes from there.
I’ve also went to my cabin with my mother and brother. Took sometime off, which was nice. Plus we cleaned out of the shed, so now all the crap we don’t need is gone! My brother and I also hit some balls out into the lake where our cabin is. That was fun, we also tried to find them again, which was a rather cold experience. Since we’re talking about golf, I was playing a nine hole with my brother, uncle and cousin yesterday. It went really well, and I’m just a couple of points from reaching the “normal” score. Also called par. A funny thing happened after we where done and we where gonna walk of the ninth hole. As I approached my cousin from behind while he was holding his putter with the head up, he suddenly and quickly turned around. As I was to slow to reacted he ended up hitting me by accident with his putter. It was a really hard hit so I started to bleed, a lot. So my brother helped me down on the ground so I could lay down and the blood could bleed backwards away from my eyes. So then we drove of to the emergency to check if I had gotten an concussion and to sew my two “holes” in the head. Waiting for the doctor to check me out took some time, but when he finally arrived it all went rather quick and he stated that I didn’t have a concussion (which is awesome), but that I had to sew 5 stitches to cover up on of the “holes”. The other one he just used some strips to tighten it. So that’s how my yesterday was. Rather fun and a bit painfully. Mostly because I was being a man and getting sewn without anesthetic. How man isn’t that?!
Today is Monday, and it’s my first vacation day. I’m taking it easy because of the accident yesterday. Was a little trip outside, bought Test Drive Unlimited (played it before) and it’s a lot of fun. My brother is also buying it, so going to be super fun! There is also a lot of track to download from the net! I’ve also played a lot of Minecraft. You should check it out if you haven’t tried it yet! I’m also thinking about buying a Playstation 3, as they are getting rather cheap now. We’ll see how the week goes…
Been a week since last post now. That’s a long time, but I have been on the mountain with my father. Cross-country skiing in Jotunheimen from Saturday to Monday. We originally planned to stay to Tuesday, but the weather was so bad plus we had taken the key to our hut which my mother where going to. So we thought we would be nice and come home a day earlier.
So that’s all I’m managing to write now. Hopefully I will be back in my normal routine after Easter break.
