Foggy way home

11dec_01

Hard working students on their way home~!

You can see it before going out, how it cling on to the widow. How it covers every moving light. How everything is more glorious. When that mystic eerie feeling lies heavy in the air. How it magnifies because of the frost smoke coming out of your mouth. And when you have someone to share it with! It’s moments like these I am waiting for, when keep taking my camera with me no matter what pays off.

Christmas Shopping

I decided to take the saturday of and do some christmas gift shopping. I have a few presents that needs to be sent to Norway pretty quickly so it will reach their owners in time for christmas. So I went out the door…and something felt wrong.

No snow, no cold, no frost... and loads of sun.

Still, there was a bunch of people doing their christmas shopping today.

At least it seemed like it. It was pretty chaotic in the centre. It might have been because it was saturday morning. The picture below doesn’t do the chaos any justice. The queue went far from the counters, curling around the accessorize selves. Which also was the place most people found interesting. So much prettiness!

08dec_02 08dec_03It is also the season for high-heeled party shoes, or christmas shoes. Depends how you look at it. As always I have to small and petite feet to fit any of these. Actually I thought going abroad to the UK would make it easier for me and my shoe size issue, but no. They got size 3 which is size 36. Then some internet stores got size 2 which is size 34….

where did size 2.5/35 disappear to?

Anyways, I got the christmas gift shopped and packed. They are ready to be sent to Norway tomorrow. So my main goal was achieved.

Christmas decoration ~

Uni life just keep getting busier and busier, today its two weeks before hand in and I find myself feeling a little bit robotic. I just work, eat, sleep. Then get up to work some more. Still, somewhere inside that robotic girl there is passion. Maybe a bit frustration, but definitely lots of real passion.

Because why else would I accept drowning in this work?

But due to a lot of work and little time to look around and appreciate, it is hard to find that Christmas feeling and atmosphere. So I insisted on buying a pre-lit christmas tree rising 90 cm over the ground. I really insisted. And I got my wish and some red christmas bulbs and golden glitter! It has its charm where its standing in the living room greeting me good morning every morning when I eat my breakfast. Love it!
