Life Update are personal posts I do once in awhile to update you on what’s been going on in my life recently. What I have been doing, my interests and what is currently happening in my life. You can find the other Life Update posts under “Personal” in the archives.
-My mom and dad is on a business trip to China with my dad’s brewery. They are there for over a week. Finally I got some alone time with my boyfriend, we have had some nice days for ourselves in the house.
-A little update on the blog design. I have made some new buttons for my social media. You can find them on the right side of the blog. Let me know if you like them.
-As you guys might know, I love The Sims games. The new expansion pack to the game City Living came out November 3rd, and I have been obsessed. Sims 4 now has apartments and a whole new beautiful world, the city San Mayshuno. It is so much fun to play! My sims has now moved to the big city and is renting an apartment.
Mika’s apartment, the love interest for one of my sims.
I also made an Indian inspired restaurant on one of the rooftops that came with the expansion.
Wow this was a lot of Sims, but as you can see I have been playing it a lot lately.
-I made a profile on Netgalley to test it out. I have read my first book, Digital Idols. I didn’t really like the book though, but you can find the review here. I’m thinking about maybe reading one Netgalley book each month or something, I don’t know yet.
-It has been snowing a lot here in Norway this week. I really need some warm shoes and a new winter jacket. I think it’s weird that we always are shocked when the first snow is coming, like it happens every year. People haven’t changed the tires on their cars, even some police cars got stuck because of that.
-My grandfather’s funeral is today, he died earlier this week. I’m very sad he is gone and I can’t attend his funeral, It’s impossible for me to go. My grandparents live on the other side of the country and it is a 9 hour drive. I’ll be thinking about him a lot today.
-It was my birthday yesterday, I’m 24 now. I got a few books as presents, from my parents I got Gemina and A Tree Grows in Brooklyn and a vegetable cooking book. Plus some other small things. From my boyfriend I got two notebooks, flowers and the book The Romanovs: 1613-1918. I also got some other things from friends etc. Thank you so much everyone for all the gifts.
-I’m having a little “party” tomorrow with some girlfriends. We are going to eat some good food and cake. I feel a bit weird about celebrating but I have been looking forward to it for so long because I haven’t celebrated my birthday in years.
-One last random thing. I fell in love with this blue bookcase from IKEA. The bookcase I’m using now is my parents and it is crammed full of books. I don’t know where to put this bookcase but I really want it. Actually I want it to be in my boyfriend’s apartment so I can have some of my things there. He doesn’t have the biggest apartment so I don’t think it will fit anywhere.
