It’s September, and it’s been a long time sense I’ve written anything. It’s time to start up again and starting out with a short update of what has happened the last couple of months.
During the summer i came to the decision to move back to The Motherland. I have had no job after i stopped at Elkjøp in February, and it just got to me. The reasons for moving back has been stacking up during the last year, and i decided that this was the best thing for me to do. My Norwegian way of life lasted for one year. Many might say that one year is not enough time to start up from fresh in a new place, and i agree with them. One of my former colleagues from Finland had to use 4 years to get attuned to her new life in Norway. As said the reason are there, where the main one is my theatrical work i do in Copenhagen. Not gonna get in details at this point.
My life in Norway has been a huge roller-coaster of emotions, thoughts, events and life changing things. I have met a lot of new people and lost some of them again. I’ve made new friends that i ain’t gonna let go so easily. And i have had a wonderful life with Gf and her family. Gf has been my brightest point in Norway, when things seemed pointless and hopeless. You could say that with the events that took place like loosing our loved friend Christina Rødstøl to the terrible accident in October 2009, not getting my contract on the job renewed, being unemployed, figuring out more meaning than 42, getting King as the newest family member, loosing Punky and everything else, might just have brought us closer together. All in all, it really sucks, that at this moment, she has not been able to come back with me to Denmark. All good things are worth waiting and working for. (more to come on this subject, just not right now) So status is now; me back in the apartment from where we moved in August last year.
After the decision was made to pull the anchor and return home, i applied for a job, went to the interview the week after. 4 hours after the interview i had the job. So what went wrong in Norway?, where i tried so very hard for 7 months? (yet another blog post to come) I got hired for working in Kamerahuset.dk Selling and helping people with their questions and purchases of digital cameras. Not my only function here, and i’m rapidly growing in the field of responsibilities. I was hired for start August 2, and have now been there for 1½ months. Once again I’ve met new people and have some awesome colleagues. Looking forward for the next long period of time, as i can hear my knowledge and mood grow for the better…. Just wish Gf was here to share the joy with me. (not that she is that far away, long live Skype!)
The same week i arrived at Copenhagen i also got hijacked for two plays with my lovely theater group The CTC. We are doing a play called “The House of Yes” and straight after that, we are doing the Christmas play/musical “A Christmas Carol” looking very much forward to do these two play, for i have had no acting involved in my life for the entire time in Norway.
When i arrived in Copenhagen i pretty much just had my suitcase with cloth and my laptop. And finally just last weekend i visited Gf and Gf-dad who was having his birthsday, in a van to pick up the rest of our stuff and my electronic equipment. I have been living on the couch of my loving family for the first month and just got my own place back this September. It’s all good.
Well this was as said just a quick update that i have started to write again, just as i used to. A lot of exiting things has been popping up that i wanted to write about; Food, games, gadgets and of cause photography, so hopefully i will be writing on a daily basis again.
Love ya all - Tai out.
