GIVEAWAY for February!

What's up guys?

I know I've been away for a while here comes the excuses, be prepared, but they are legit, I think so, but I have just been super busy with school, work and moving. We moved into the center of the town I live in this past Saturday, so everything has been really hectic and crazy. 
So I've spent my weekend carrying really heavy boxes and scrubbing every visible surface in our old house. In other words, it's been a stressful weekend, with a lacking amount of sleep.

But, I am back with a giveaway! Yeah, awesome right? So here it is! My first ever giveaway! Yey!

a Rafflecopter giveaway

I am also doing a monthly giveaway from now on, so this one will count as the one for February :)
I hope you guys like the idea and I would love some feedback on it!

Till next time - happy reading!

So, I've got 10 subscribers on YouTube. Yeah! I know this might seem weird because it's not a lot, but I think it's amazing and it's just so much fun because I was being paranoid (like I am all the time) and thinking my videos would suck so much that no one would watch them, but now here we are. It's only been like a month since I started making videos and now this. And I know I'm rambling, but I am just so grateful, you have no idea. This is awesome.

So be on the lookout for a book giveaway really soon! 

(Oh my, I can't believe this, so freaking happy right now!)

Until next time you guys, happy reading and all that jazz!

My 12 goals of 2012

Hey Guys,
So I know this blog post is very late when you think about that the new year started almost a month ago, but I figured it would be fun to share the 12 things I want to accomplish in 2012 with you. 12 things because it's 2012, obviously.

01. Read 100 books.
I can honestly say I am being very optimistic about this, because if I want to read 100 books in a year, I will have to read approximately 2 books per week to be able to succeed. This might prove to be difficult, but I will try all the same. Didn't someone once say that the way to success is through failure? Ok, so maybe no one said that, but they should have. Technically I just said it, feel free to quote me, haha.

02. Get into a university in London.
I want to study in London. English, that is what I want to study. I have to get in, I just have to.

03. Write a book.
Already started this one and I can proudly say I already have 1200 words. This shit is happening. Oh, and I also would like to attempt to translate a Norwegian book into English, and I feel like that can go under this goal as well, because they are both about writing.

04. Complete at least 15 things on my list of things to do before I die.
Well, at least I have a lot to choose from. The list currently consists of about 250 things and it is still growing.

05. Work harder at school.
I really want amazing grades this year, so it is goodbye social life and hello textbooks. I will be enjoying a lot of alone time with my amazing history book. The worst thing about this is that this year is really focused on the social aspect surrounding school because you become something called a Russ your last year of upper secondary school here in Norway. All you do is basically; party and consume endless amounts of alcohol for the month of May.

06. Get a second job.
I am taking a year off from studying to earn money so that I can go to university, because it's expensive in England. I guess I could just go here in Norway where it's basically free, but that's no fun. Let's all get huge loans and pay them off till the end of time, that's the way to go. As you can see, I obviously have no logical logic.

07. Spend my money more wisely.
So, basically - don't waste my money buying crap I don't need. Like clothes, because I am not giving up books.

08. Work-out more.
What more is there to say about this?

09. Enjoy every second you have with the ones you love.
I have realized lately that after this year I might not see my best friends for a while because so many are going of to study in other parts of the country and other parts of the world even.

10. Get my drivers license.
Yup. I am doing it. Bring on the driving!

11. Learn how to speak Italian or French.
I hope I can do this, because I just love the way these languages sound. I also want to have some basic knowledge of the language before I eventually go there.

12. Travel 10 places you've never been before.
Oh yeah! I am definitely doing this one. It will be awesome! I am already traveling to London during Easter and I've never been there before, so one down, nine more to go. I also count places I have not been in my own country in this, not just other countries. Because even though Norway isn't particularly big, there are many places I have never been, like Bergen - I really want to go there.

Do you have any goals for this year?

The future of this blog is still to be determined..

Hey Guys,
So I finally got my butt in gear and joined in on this amazing blog-universe-world-thing, and as of right now I am feeling pretty good about it. Yes, I will admit that I have in the past started blogging, but then about a month and a half into the whole sha-bang, that is when I give up. I am not motivated anymore, I am tired of not seeing any comments, I have run out of random stuff to talk about and I am all blogged out and ready to move on with my life.

But (there is a but), this time will be different, because I have never tried having a book-blog before, and since I love books and could talk about them forever. I am serious, I would ramble into oblivion about them. I decited that this would be a good thing, because I am stoked to start! I can't wait to share my thoughts with you guys and hear yours as well, because I love reading and sharing that with other people will be awesome.

Also, I have a youtube that I am updating, but I am really new at book-tubing as well, so don't judge me, I know I am an amature! I will post the link at the end of this post. I also have a goodreads so come check me out and we'll be friends through books, which is awesome.

But yeah, that is what I have to say for now, I would love to hear from you and you are awesome that stuck with this post until the end.

And until the next time - happy reading!
