Life Update #4

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.

It has been a really long time since my last life update. The last one was published in November, if you don’t count the Christmas post as a life update.

– My health has been really up and down the two last months. Thankfully it is still getting better over all, and everything is going forward. The cold season has been killing me, last week I was really stuffed up and my body was aching. I’m not the only one with that problem, it feels like everybody has been sick lately.

-So over to more fun things. In February I got 2 new pairs of glasses. I’m really happy with them, and I hope they look good on me.


-Something that I have been thinking about the last months, is that I want to start documenting my life through film. I want to film things in my day to day life as someone who struggles with M.E., and post it as a vlog on Youtube. I started in February with filming some short clips, it isn’t anything special but I have to get used to it. I have to put a February video together asap, Rakel stop procrastinating. And also, I need help, do anyone know about a good free video editing program?

-The game I have been playing lately is Dishonored, and I’m obsessed. Why did it take me so long to pick it up? I should have played it sooner because I’m really liking it. It is right up my alley, and I have a great time playing it.


Sunday two weeks ago, we celebrated Fastelaven here in Norway. If you want to read about Fastelaven HERE is a link. On Fastelaven the tradition is to eat Boller (buns) with whipped cream, it tasted delicious.

  1. Hi! I found your blog in the comments of the marginalized book blogger post, and I wanted to stop by because I am a fellow 20-something book blogger who also has ME 🙂 I love your film idea! I was literally just typing up something for an upcoming weekly update about how I want to start talking about my illness more, including the struggles, since it seems like a lot of tend to only show the good side of things. Gah! I also just looked at your Twitter and saw that you’re a Ravenclaw and you play The Sims?! I think we’re kindred spirits, haha.

    1. Haha I need to follow you on Twitter 😀 Kindred spirits, I love that ^_^ Nice to see another person that struggles with the same and loves books 🙂 (not nice that you struggle, but you know what I mean :P). I find it hard to talk about my illness, but I should probably start talking about it more.
