Song of the day

This has been playing in my head (and on my computer) all day.
Robyn’s cool.

Goodbye July

High on caffeine, that’s what I am right now.
In a planning mode also. Just made a July plan and put up on a wall (It’s called procrastinating kids… I’m the queen of it)
I’ve finally completely decided the topic for my BA thesis and first draft is due at the end of July. And I haven’t written a word yet! So you know what I’ll be doing in July. Along with working quite a lot. And I’m also going camping one weekend and I really wanted to go to my beloved hometown some weekend in July . I also need to do a lot of running!
July hasn’t even started and I already feel that it is too short!
I don’t have to sleep in July do I?
Breathe…

Vigdís

This is one of the coolest women there is – Vigdis Finnbogadottir.
On this day 30 years ago, she was elected the president of Iceland and became the first female president in the world. And she was a single mother at the time.
I read her biography not so long ago and it made me admire her even more. Such an intelligent woman. And with a passion for languages and culture – I like that in people.

Gadgets + running and Grace??!

I got a late birthday present the other day – a Polar heart rate monitor (or a pulse monitor if you will).
It looks like a wristwatch

I love new gadgets!
It’s a really neat gadget to use when running, which btw I’ve taken up lately. I’m very bad at it, but getting better.
I’m at the stage in my running where I find running 20 minutes straight a major accomplishment. I mean really major!
More about running later maybe.

And what is the deal with Grace Coddington? I mentioned her in a post months ago and now suddenly lots and lots of people are finding that post when googling her name. Why did everybody suddenly become so interested in Grace Coddington?!

Celebrations!

I celebrated my birthday just over a week ago. Yes, before my actual birthday.
Photos:


I made cupcakes – with great help though!


I tried to get people drunk on jello shots – but failed. They tasted baaaad.


I “kindly” asked my friends for some entertainment for the party. These two awesome people fulfilled my wish and sang me some songs.

Birds

Went out for a run earlier today.
Got attacked by hundreds of these:


Arctic Tern (pic: birdforum.net)

I hate, hate, HATE these birds. They are the most annoying, aggressive horrible animals. They hovered above my head making horrible noises. None managed to touch me though, although more than a few came close.
I won’t be running this route again! Well, not at least until these killer birds head south for the winter…
