I. Go on and look into my archives. Look at last summer. The time has come. [….dramatic music with high piano notes.] This year, being all legal and with a domain, I am actually planning to stick around, but I’m not off to a great start. I have a reason. I have a really fucking good reason. In one week, I’ll be boarding a plane that will take me away from my life in Norway. I haven’t been able to sleep for two weeks; I just start panicking and find myself, at 3am, eating chocolate, watching Supernatural and pausing to either see if it’s light outside yet or to explore an idea I’ve had (some of them: training sledge dogs in Alaska, volunteering in Chad, studying in Sweden, waitressing in Cambodia). I’m not in a good place mentally, but I’m pretty sure no exchange student is, waiting for their life to be smashed into pieces. Thing is, I have no idea where these pieces are. Buried somewhere in the sea between my two countries, I guess.
II. There will be no 20 things I love about post tomorrow, as I have been too busy to write anything. However, I might do next week’s one on Supernatural. See, I decided that if I’m not sleeping anyways, I could catch up with that show, as I stopped watching halfway. The finale was really good. And Mette’s tweets have made me hungry for a rewatch. So I’ll be rewatching SPN in July and I loved the first five or six seasons. (Oh, and reviews, I guess — cinema is basically free in Estonia, so I’ll be hidden away there as often as possible.)
III. ~Next review will be on The Fault in Our Stars. I went to see it and cried through most of it, but it wasn’t the film. It was the book, coming to life. John Green is a very good writer, and I remembered pieces of his writing as I heard the dialogue and saw some details. Ansel Elgort really surprised me, in a good way, and Woodley was amazing. I’m going to have to start standing up for her — I’ve loved her in everything she’s been in, no matter the dumb things she does.
IV. Finally, I’d like to take a moment to say a big thank you to the people who haven’t forgotten about me as I’ve been absent this past week, from both this blog and yours. I promise I’ll get back to all of you as soon as I can, but I really have to prioritise the last days with my family and friends in Norway. Thank you all so much for making this community be so great! (I don’t doubt that you guys will forgive me. If you won’t, let me know and I’ll send you a chocolate puppy or something.)
