5 tips to become a morning person


Category: Life, according to me // 21.07.2017 at.13:40 o' clock // 2 comments


Do you feel like there's not enough hours in a day for all the things you have planned? Chances are you're just sleeping them away. So here's my 5 tips to get out of bed earlier.




01 NATURAL LIGHT
If your room is dark you'll convince yourself to continue sleeping. So throw those curtains away, keep your window open and let the sun in! 

02 MUSIC
Music makes you feel more energized. Create a spotify list, name it "Wake up bitch!" or whatever you like, and play it every morning. I suggest you include the following songs, even if these aren't the kind of songs you'd normally listen to:

Survivor - Eye of the tiger
Cyndi Lauper - Girls just wanna have fun
The pointer sisters - I'm so excited
Little Mix - Black magic
Manian - welcome to the club
Special D - Come with me
Special D - you
Smokie - living next door to Alice



03 DRINK SOMETHING
Some people drink coffee, some drink energy drinks, and some simply want a glass of cold water in the morning. Find something that works for you.

04 COLD SHOWERS
It's painful, but I promise it's worth it.

05 TAKE A WALK
Get some sun in your eyes and wind in your hair. Smell the morning dew and the fresh air.

Let me be completely honest here..


Category: Life, according to me // 18.07.2017 at.22:42 o' clock // 2 comments


While browsing the internet today, I came across this picture.



My immediate response to this was, and will always be, to roll my eyes and shake my head. I'm gonna spare you the lies, and be completely honest: there's no way the little girl on the left could ever compare to the young woman on the right.

Before you attack me for being 'a cold hearted bitch', let me tell you a little bit about the little girl on the left. Her name is Adalia Rose. She suffers from something called progeria, which is a rare condition that makes her body age several times faster than the average human being. People with progeria typically live to be around 8 to 21 years old. Adalia's body, despite her young age, is like the body of an old lady. She will never have flawless skin, or long, thick, shiny hair. She will never have a pair of perfect double D's or a butt like the Kardashians. She will never be able to fit society's standard of what's considered beautiful.

So no. Comparing her looks to the woman on the right and telling her that they are just as visually attractive, is a big, fat, cruel lie. You know it. I know it. Adalia probably knows it. She's not blind. She has eyes. She can see. She has a brain. She can understand. She doesn't suffer from stupidity or denial, she suffers from progeria. Anyone who's seen her on TV or follow her on social media already knows that she's a very clever, young girl with a lot to teach us. She knows she's different. She knows she'll never be the next Miss Universe. So why bother lying? 

Because you want her to feel good about herself?

No. If you wanted her to feel good about herself, you'd tell her what a brave little girl she is. You'd tell her how talented she is. How funny she is. How clever she is. You'd tell her how strong she is. How she's such an inspiration. How she's so precious. You'd tell her that she's amazing. You'd tell her that you're there for her, if she ever wants a friend or just someone to talk to. You'd tell her that there are more important things in life than flawless skin and long hair. If you wanted her to feel good about herself, you wouldn't have to lie. There are a billion things you could tell her, a billion compliments you could give her, that has nothing to do with her looks.

But you don't care, do you? You don't care about her illness. You don't care if she believes you. You're just saying nice things so you can go to bed in the evening feeling like a good person. Like you did something good today. You're saying she's beautiful because deep down, you feel guilty for thinking the opposite, and you think that by "saving" her with lies about how beautiful she looks, you're a better person.

Adalia is beautiful. But it's not because of her looks. She will never look as good as the woman on the right. Adalia is beautiful because of her personality. How she makes people smile, even though she's the one fighting the hardest battle. She's beautiful for never giving up. She's beautiful for being different. But don't say she's just as good looking as a photoshopped model on a picture on the internet, because that's a lie, and we all know it.

A world of clones


Category: Life, according to me // 13.07.2017 at.11:36 o' clock // 8 comments



THESE ARE NOT THE SAME PERSON.


NEITHER ARE THESE.

Fifteen pictures. Fifteen different people. Yet, they all kind of look exactly the same. Kylie Jenner's (picture number 7) copying Anastasia Petrova (picture number 6), and Isabel Raad's (picture number 8) copying Kylie Jenner. In a way they all look like Kim Kardashian, who's copying Megan Fox, who's copying  Angelina Jolie. Then you have Alena Shishkova, who looks like the blonde version of Megan Fox, and Sophie Elise (picture number 13) who's trying to look like Alena Shishkova. Round and round in an endless circle.

It's a world of clones.

Same hair, same lipstick, same highlighter.

Same poses, same smiles, same look in their eyes.

Same eyebrows, same lashes.

Same surgeries, same injections.

No originality.

Just real life copy- paste.

Surgeries becomes real life photoshop.

Makeup becomes real life lightening.

Makes me wonder who these people really are

when they're not trying to be someone else.

WARNING: society doesn't want you to know


Category: Life, according to me // 09.07.2017 at.02:23 o' clock // 8 comments




I grew up in a cult. So did you. You just never realized, because from the moment you took your first steps and said your first words, it was forced down your throat. You never realized, because it's all you've ever known. You don't know a world - a reality - outside of the cult. To you, the cult is the very definition of normal. You eat it, you breathe it, you live it, and most of you never even question it. Most of you will defend it. Most of you will break down anyone who dare stand against the teaching of the cult. You will mock them, you will call them names, you will make fun of them, some of you might even make up untrue statements and pass it off as facts. Because that's what you have been taught.

"What exactly is a cult?", you might ask, thinking back to old movies you've seen of a small group of submissive people, with one, overly religious, very dominat, emotionally abusive leader. That is a cult. But a cult, per definition is also a - to quote wikipedia -  "social group defined by it's religious, spiritual or philosophical beliefs, or its common interest in a particular personality, object or goal".

Not all cults consists of a small group of people living in cabins or tents. Not all cults have strict rules. Not all cults make you sacrifice something of your own. Some cults, like the one you are in, consists of large amounts of people, living in houses. Some, like the one you are in, does not make you rise at six thirty every morning and pray to the man in the sky or greet your leader as a God. Instead, you are given the illusion that you are free to make your own choices. That you don't have a leader, and that you can believe in whatever you want. Some cults, like the one you are in, does not make you sacrifice something of your own. It makes you sacrifice something that belongs to someone else. Freedom, and their life.

"How could the germans let this happen?", we often wonder when people bring up the holocaust. "How did they not see that this was wrong? Why didn't anyone try to stop it?". The answer to those questions are simply: they were brainwashed. Kids growing up in those days were, just like you, taught to believe that this was the only right thing to do. That it was okay to do, because those jews, or homosexuals, weren't like you and me. They were dumb and they didn't quite understand things the way you and I do. Kids back in the days were told, from a very young age, to look the other way and close their eyes to what was going on, because this was necessary. This was for the greater good. Without this, there was no hope for a better future.

Today we look back on our own history, and we are ashamed. Today we understand that it's wrong to own black people as slaves. We understand that it's wrong to lock people with dissabilities up in cages and show them off at freak shows. We understand that being gay is not a disease. We understand that jews shouldn't be gassed. We've come a long way, and we are ashamed of what it took to get us to where we are now.

Still one group of individuals remain. Even today we are brainwashed. Even today, when we send our kids to school, they are taught that it's okay to mistreat a certain group of individuals. That these individuals aren't like us. They don't feel, and they don't understand, like we do. Just like our ancestors back in the days, we are taught to look the other way and close our eyes to reality. To the abuse and slaughter of millions. We are taught that this is the only right thing to do. That if we stop, the consequenses will be catastrophic. We are taught that these individuals are for entertainment purposes only. They live to serve us. They are entertainment, they are fashion, and they are food.

You know which group of individuals I'm talking about, don't you? It's the animals. Every day thousands of young and healthy animals are slaughtered on our demand. Farmers rape their cows (artificially inseminate them) once a year, so they can start producing milk. Once the baby is born, it's taken from it's mother and either killed or raised somewhere else. Why? Because that's what's needs to be done in order for us to get cows milk. Look up any school book and it'll tell you that cows milk are very important to us. That it's very important for our bone structure and teeth. 



Most of us just accept this as the ultimate, undeniable truth, because that's what we were taught to do. To listen, to believe, and never ask questions or think for ourselves. But if you one day were to sit down and actually think about it, you'd soon realize that something doesn't add up. A cow produces milk so that their offspring will get what it needs in order to stay healthy. This includes gaining weight fast. You, my fellow human being, are not a baby cow. Your children are not baby cows. There's a very obvious difference in size here. The weight that is normal and healthy for a calf is not the same size that is normal and healthy for a young human child. Every female mammal produces milk for their babies. The milk contains what their offspring needs to be healthy. Your baby needs your breast milk. But the average six year old human being have no use for breastmilk made for baby cows.

From a very young age you've been brought up to believe that you need cows milk and meat. But if you need meat to stay healthy, how come there are so many vegetarians / vegans out there?

Interestingly enough, vegetarianism / veganism is the one thing that history books love to leave out. They will tell you everything about Leonardo DaVinci. When he was born, where he grew up, his relationship with his family, his proudest moments... But they won't tell you that he didn't eat meat, or that he loved animals so much he used to buy them just so he could realease them back into the wild instead of having them kept in cages. History books will tell you all about the genius Albert Einstein, things he did and things he said, but one thing they will not quote him on is this: "Nothing will benefit human health and increase the chances of survival of life on earth as much as the evolution to a vegetarian diet". History books will tell you how an indian guy named Mahatma Gandhi led india to independence and inspired movements for civil rights and freedom across the world. They will tell you that he was born under the name Mohandas Karamchand. They will tell you about his education, his family.. But they won't tell you that he was a vegetarian.

Instead, we are brought up to believe that only weirdos and dumb people are vegetarians / vegans. We are taught that it's okay to mock these people.

We are taught to care about the environment. To always turn the lights off when we leave a room, and to take short showers. To use the car only when we have to. One thing that they won't tell us is that seventy percent of deforestation are caused by beef production. Or that it takes 660 gallons of water to produce one hamburger(!). That is the same amount of water you'd use if you left the shower on for two full months without turning it off.

What we are a part of, what we teach our children, what we practice, has a name. It's called speciesism. Speciesism is the belief that one species are superior to another, and that it's okay for the superior species - in this case us, humans - to use the other species in the way that best suits us, be it for entertainment, food, fashion or any other purpose of our choice. Speciesism is categorized as a religion, and it originates from christianity where they believe that God created man as the superior being. 


So there you have it. You are religious, and you were brought up in a cult. You believe what you are told without questioning it, and anything that goes against that belief is kept hidden from the public to keep the people clueless and easily manipulated.

Hopefully, some day, people will look back on this era in human history, and feel the same amount of disgust and shame as we do today when we think back on how we used to treat other people simply for being different. Cause that's all that it's ever been - and still is - about: punishing other beings for being different.

Whenever you're feeling suicidal


Category: Life, according to me // 05.07.2017 at.14:32 o' clock // No comments


"If you believed someone was truly going to kill themselves, what would you do about it?", a girl named Jessica (nice name!) asked me yesterday on social media.



Assuming that I had a car and a drivers license, assuming I knew where they lived, I'd ring their doorbell. "Come with me", I'd say. We'd drive far away. I'd take them somewhere new. A new town and a new place. We'd walk around in the middle of the night, staring at the street light and the moon and the stars, and I'd remind them how peaceful the world can be at night.

We'd sit on a cliff and watch the sun rise over the ocean and I'd remind them that every morning when the sun rises, you are given a second chance at life. A new chance to start over, or make things right.

We'd go buy ice cream and they'd be reminded of how good it tastes.

I'd take them diving, and we'd explore a whole new world hidden under the surface. I'd take them to a pet store or a shelter to connect and play with animals, to remind them how wonderful these creatures are and that every life has value.

We'd walk around town and look at the people around us, and I'd remind them how every single one of these people have their own problems to deal with.

Assuming I could afford it, We'd get on a plane and I'd take them somewhere new. I'd show them a new culture and remind them that the world is full of possibilites. Full of new places to see, new smells to enjoy, new tastes to discover and new people to love.

And then, when the day came to an end and it was time for us to head home, I'd stop, and I'd say:

"You don't have to go back. You can stay right here, if that's what you want. You can leave your old life behind and start over. End your routine, not your life".

To whoever's looking to get rid of their pet


Category: Life, according to me // 28.06.2017 at.22:25 o' clock // One comment


"We're moving and we can't take the cat with us". That's the most common excuse of them all. "Oh really?", I think to myself in a sarcastic, overly judgmental tone, "you're a cat owner and you're moving somewhere you can't take your cat with you?". Why is moving somewhere your cat isn't allowed even an option?



The second most common excuse? "We don't have time for him / her". Then I really hope that you, being the super busy person you are, never consider having a baby. I mean, if you ain't got time for a pet, how would you ever find time to care for a baby?

Then we have the "sudden allergy" excuses. Guess what? There are pills for that! Take them, and stop making up excuses to get rid of the pet you once pledged to love and care for until it dies.

Regardless of the excuses people around us may choose, one thing's for sure: there will be a lot of homeless cats this summer. Some will get murdered by their owners in the most brutal ways you can imagine. Drowned, choked or even crushed to death on purpose. Others will be abandoned and left to care for themselves. Thrown out of moving cars in the middle of the road, or left in a bag or a cage in the woods. Last but not least, let's not forget the cats who are taken to the vet just in time to get put down 'the humane way' before their owner goes on holiday with their wife / husband and kids.

Now, here's a little bit of information you probably didn't know about the so called 'humane' way. If you are going to force this upon a perfectly healthy, happy cat, you should at least know what your pet will be going through. I suggest you print this blog post so you can read it while working on your tan in Spain or wherever the f*ck you're spending your days this summer and just really think about what a shitty person you are. Personally I would hope that you get stung by poisionous jelly fish, get food allergies, sun burned and that your flight is canceled and you end up having the worst days of your life, but that's just me.

First your innocent, happily unaware, pet will see you leave. Then it will be taken to 'the room'. Every pet freaks out when getting anywhere near 'the room'. No one knows why. Maybe they smell death in the air, or they sense something that humans don't. It's strange and unexplainable, but it happens to all of them. Dogs, cats, rabbits... You name it. Once inside, your pet will be held down by one or two people, depending on the size of the pet and how freaked out it is. Then a vet will start the process. They will find a vein, typically in one of the front legs, and inject a lethal dose of some liquid. Hopefully your pet won't panic. They don't all just 'go to sleep' peacefully. Sometimes they die during a panic attack. Sometimes they will spasm for a while, gasp for air or defecate on themselves. 

When it's over, the corpse will be stacked like firewood with all the other corpses of unwanted or sick animals in a freezer. What will happen next? Will they be cremated? Taken to the dump? Rendered into pet food? You will never know and it probably won't even cross your mind.

I can only hope that there are at least some part of you feeling some sort of emotional pain from reading this.

But you don't care, do you? It was just an animal, wasn't it? And once the summer's over, you can go get a new one, right? A cute little kitten for your kid to play with. Then comes another summer, and you take it to the vet once again, to be put down, so you don't have to deal with it. You tell your kid it ran away, or that it was sick and died. Maybe you pretend to go look for it. Maybe you pretend there was nothing you could do. 

How do I know what happens behind closed doors? A vet once told me. And that should scare you. But it probably won't. And that scares me.

Why you should spay your cat


Category: Life, according to me // 20.06.2017 at.18:30 o' clock // No comments


Thursday morning I'm taking my little princess, Argentina (2), to the vet to get her spayed. She's been an indoor cat all her life but now it's time to grant her some freedom, which means she will have to get spayed - or as I like to call it: "fixed" - before we let her walk out the door (or window) and explore the outside world.



According to some guy on facebook, spaying your cat is a bad idea. He wrote, and I quote:

"To all of you who think all cats in Norway should be spayed: we are eradicating the cats! (...) Don't tell me it's not about eradicating the cats! What do you think will happen when cats can't get pregnant anymore? Are the kittens just gonna appear out of thin air?"

The thing is: there are way too many cats in Norway already. I love animals and the idea of a world full of cats, but not like this. Right now there are more cats than there are people willing to welcome them into their homes, and as a result of that, many cats end up homeless. A homeless cat isn't a happy cat. A cat who's left to himself, with no one to care for him, is a cat that will die a slow, painful death. It's not about eradicating the cats, it's about population control. Only when every cat has a place to call home, we can slow down and relax about the spaying. Only when there are no cats dying on the streets we can let them get pregnant. Right now, when hundreds of cats are left to die alone, some because they've never had a home, and others because their family kicked them out before going on a holiday, the humane thing to do is to spay your cat.

 

DO YOU GUYS AGREE?
WHY OR WHY NOT?

WHY ENGLISH?


Through social media I've come to know a lot of people from all over the world. Most of them don't speak Norwegian. Some of them read my blog regardless. So I wanted to make a blog in a language they could actually understand.
