High Quality Boots For The Win!

Today I finally got myself new Timberland boots!

I’ve had the orange ones for 5 years and have been using them constantly. I can certainly testify that Timberland boots can take a serious beating!

I used them until they were completely worn out. If you look closely you can spot a hole in the orange boot to the left. They literally started taking in water, so they had to be replaced!

I highly recommend investing in a pair. They are waterproof, warm, have a good quality sole and are perfect for Northern European weather conditions, long walks, uneven terrain and mud.

When I got my very first pair of Timberlands I did not know that they also came in black. The new ones look really cool in my opinion and I cannot wait to start using them!

I’m a huge fan of proper boots! 

Getting wellies is a bad idea in comparison since they don’t shield you from the cold. With proper footwear you can keep on going until your legs cannot take it anymore!

Trust me! I walk for miles in horrible weather conditions!

They are also very easy to take off when going thru airport security due to the design. Trust me on this! You can wear them without tying them as you walk out of security before fastening them properly, which can also be done surprisingly quickly!

Demons, Movies, Politicians & Bill Gates doing God’s work (according to himself).

This is an old entry that I’ve shortened & edited; I think it is of interest since it touches upon issues that are universal and certainly not unique to our continent or population groups.

You know, the only thing that kills a demon…is love” – Mickey Knox

The Kite Runner” is a movie (and a book) set in Afghanistan depicting the friendship of two young boys from two very different backgrounds. One of them is the servant of the other. The privileged boy ends up fleeing the territory with his father to the U.S.A. when Russians invade Afghanistan. The once distinguished Baba ends up working at a gas station across the pond to provide for himself and his son. In this setting America becomes a place of refuge and hope, not only for them but for other Afghanis as well.

An interesting detail to note in the movie is that Baba doesn’t want to be examined by an American doctor of Russian ancestry, but insists on getting care from someone who hails from the same territory as himself.

“The citizens of Kabul were skeletons now. Skeletons selling naswar in the night market, skeletons drinking cups of strong tea, skeletons playing cards in the moonlight. They greeted me as I passed, teeth clacking together in their jaws. “Salaam, brother,” they said. “Welcome home.”

In the superhero movie “Black Panther we are introduced to a fictional African realm called “Wakanda” whose technological superiority is meant to be kept secret. The movie is actually extremely interesting as it touches upon various topics that you normally don’t come across in the universe of fictitious heroism. One is of course the question of “racial solidarity:” should Wakandans reveal themselves by sharing their secrets with others who have the same skin colour as them? Another one is the character of Killmonger who is genetically Wakandan but who has been raised in America. He is technically an insider, yet he is not since he was raised elsewhere. When his particular configuration is introduced into the African realm he literally starts a civil war in the territory, displaying how dangerous it can be to take in “strangers” even if they are biologically just like you!

This element of  “from us but not like us” is very fascinating to me probably because I was raised as an expat but also since the scenario of being raised “a stranger as a stranger” is becoming increasingly common in Europe as it has been in America since its foundation. “Go back to where you come from!” but where is that exactly? I bring my readership’s attention to Liberia, a most ignored topic and scenario.

“The Americo-Liberian settlers did not relate well to the indigenous peoples they encountered, especially those in communities of the more isolated “bush“. The colonial settlements were raided by the Kru and Grebo from their inland chiefdoms. Americo-Liberians developed as a small elite that held on to political power, and the indigenous tribesmen were excluded from birthright citizenship in their own lands until 1904, in a repetition of the United States’ treatment of Native Americans.[10] The Americo-Liberians promoted religious organizations to set up missions and schools to educate the indigenous peoples.”

It must be a strange situation to find oneself in for sure, to be born a foreigner, yet being legally not due to papers, which is a scenario touched upon in the enjoyable movie “Bend It Like Beckham.

The tale of human suffering and struggle, whether fictional or not, knows no race or  geographical boundaries as the examples from above illustrates. Yet in the light of Nike’s recent commercial featuring Colin Kaepernick and numerous other campaigns that follow a similar vein, a question is left unanswered: what about white people?

An interesting thought experiment would be to take someone like the EU politician Juncker and place him in the context of the two movies described above: 

  • In the 1st scenario he would be an Afghan helping and aiding the Russians in their invasion of Afghanistan. A role that would certainly have depicted him as a villain.
  • In the 2nd scenario he would be an African leader giving away all of Wakanda’s technology and territory to another race. A role that would have him depicted as the worst of the worst.

In both scenarios he would be a traitor, yet in real-life and in the real-world characters like Juncker are depicted as heroes by the mainstream media, while someone who wants secure borders like U.S. President Donald J. Trump or Italian Deputy Prime Minister/Interior Minister Matteo Salvini are depicted as heartless, sociopathic, villains.

The reasons cited for why we should give our continent away as well are poor at best since nobody in the mainstream seem to ever mention that demographics within a territory goes up and down anyway, 2/3 of Norway’s population died during the Black Plague. Norwegians are still around today despite that dramatic drop….

“In addition, recent research from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) found nothing to support the assertion that economies are harmed by ageing populations.

“There is no evidence of a negative relationship between ageing and GDP per capita,” academics wrote in a paper entitled ‘Secular Stagnation? The Effect of Aging on Economic Growth in the Age of Automation’.

“On the contrary, the relationship is significantly positive in many specifications,” it adds.

This entry used to be substantially longer with a great number of articles linked into the text. I now seek to shorten it considerably: 

Internal tribalism among various demographics is becoming an increasing issue under the surface in the U.S.A., this is something that I’ve written about after witnessing and experiencing this internal fragmentation myself – now it has started to bleed into mainstream journalism:

Tribalism in the U.S.A.

More about the same topic.

Poverty in England is a huge problem: 14 million Brits live in poverty.

The E.U. are hellbent on uniting Europe and Africa:

Macron

Juncker

Matteo Salvini & Viktor Orban however vocally oppose unification with Africa and are not showing any signs of backing down: 

An anti-EurAfrica front.

“I believe that I’m in government in order to see that our young people have the number of children that they used to a few years ago and not to transplant the best of Africa’s youth to Europe.

“Maybe in Luxembourg they need to do this, but in Italy we need to help people have more children, rather than bring in modern-day slaves (from Africa) to replace the children we’re not having.” – Matteo Salvini

The French authorities are trying to get rid of, or to discredit French politician Marine Le Pen by ordering a psychiatric evaluation. If this is how political opponents are to be treated then we are getting closer to “The Democratic People’s Republic of Europe” everyday.

The desire to forcefully bend others to one’s will is an unhealthy, ever-present wish and endeavour: “We respect your Sovereignty – as long as you do what we want…..”

Salvini is under investigation due to his handling of Italy’s immigration problem. This was an issue back when I used to live there, it only got worse under Berlusconi. It is long overdue that something gets done. 

Salvini rudely interrupted since he wants more Italian children and less Africans.

Meanwhile; here we have Bill Gates who according to himself is doing God’s work. I find this to be an interesting proclamation after scrolling through his social media sites. If he is right, then God has evidently placed his love elsewhere.

The Muslim Council of Britain? British politicians who supported Hungary’s Orban, are now asked to distance themselves from him.

“His comments came after the Muslim Council of Britain said the incident raised fresh concerns about “bigotry in the party”, as the organisation has repeatedly demanded an inquiry into allegations of Islamophobia in Conservative ranks.”

You are an anti-Semite if you don’t like what Soros is doing? You are an Anti-Semite if you are targeting the Jewish people as a group. With the reasoning seen below it makes it impossible to be critical of individuals.

“President Marie van der Zyl said: “As we have stated previously, we are very alarmed by the messages at the heart of Orban’s election campaign, including his comments about ‘Muslim invaders’, calling migrants poison, and the vivid antisemitism in the relentless campaign against Jewish philanthropist George Soros.”

” … within the framework of international norms.” Where do they find these people?

“We place great values on the importance of the rule of law. We hope a resolution can be found that respects a nation’s right to set its own constitutional arrangements within the framework of international norms.”

Young politician Sebastian Kurz is a light in the darkness for sure. Austria doing what is necessary. 

I find it interesting that any person who does not comply with replacement-migration and the fundamental transformation of Europe is instantly lumped into the “far-right” category regardless of political ideology. This shows that it doesn’t matter what your politics or values are as long as you disagree with uniting Africa and Europe. That is apparently the only box that you need to tick in order to get this label. Last time I checked I thought that the E.U. was about establishing peace between the Nations of Europe, clearly I was wrong. 

The U.S.A. will expand its military presence in Greece. 

So with all of those articles pasted in I’m back to where I started, which is how all things go in the end, here is an article about Demons:  “How To Get Rid Of Demons & Demonic Attachments.”

Things That Attract Demons & Signs That Your Home Is Haunted

Possession.

How to engage in Spiritual Warfare.

Three years ago, today,  I arrived at Brockhampton Park for a two-day visit. Somehow, I never left. I fell in love with this place the moment I saw it. But then again, who wouldn’t?

Big Day Productions

This old, stately home, was converted to flats, some decades ago, after being used as a headquarter for a company for years. But long before that, it was the private home of several families, most notably Mr Rhodes, who built the wing we live in, the bridge and the lake, in addition to the summer house.  Originally, this was a much smaller country house, but over the centuries, new parts have been added. Nowadays it has 20 flats, communal halls and 12 acres of communal gardens, which includes a private little lake.

The main staircase in the hallway was built in 1905, just like the wing we live in.

When You Try To Grow Pumpkins….

I had this vision that I was going to grow pumpkins for Halloween…

I was not very successful.

This is all I got….and the pumpkin is rotten too. :/

I could only get one of them to grow, there was another one but it started to rot pretty quickly before it had even turned orange.

This whole “farming/prepping” business is not exactly easy.

Today I was scouting for nuts but not much is left.

The squirrels have been hopping around getting hold of anything edible, so I certainly felt like a comical creature when I was trying to get hold of nuts located high up in the trees.

If anyone had taken a photo of me I’m sure the resemblance between humans and our predecessors would have been striking…..

Freedom in Europe & Tommy Robinson. Freedom in U.S.A. & Roseanne Barr.

I became greatly troubled when I heard the news of how Tommy Robinson had been sentenced to 13 months in prison for standing outside a courthouse streaming from yet another grooming case. What I found especially worrying was that no one in the press were allowed to report on it, until the ban was lifted today (Thank God). Now I do not consider myself to be a member of the press, but I’m a civilian Westerner who participate in our societies, which is what we are meant to be doing … I sign petitions that are being passed around the digital world, I’ve sent some emails to local representatives asking about MicroPlastics in our drinking water, I’m helping out in the local community and I registered myself as a voter last year and campaigned within the family to get as many votes with me as possible down to the Norwegian embassy in London. I also shared information on my blog regarding the election and promoted the whole ordeal everywhere in order to inspire my fellow Norwegians to participate in the democratic process!

I sent an email to the local Parish council wondering if I could be of help, since I knew that there was a position open and that they struggle to get new people in. I was not eligible due to the particular EU deal that my country of origin has – but if I had been eligible I would have been very happy to help! I live in a small village and feel that I’m experiencing the best of England. My experience of this country is nothing but good. That being said I am seriously considering investing in Medieval Chain Mail for my next London trip … since it is illegal for people to protect themselves in this country……

I myself don’t have to worry about “Trucks of Peace” at the local Christmas market where I live, but I also understand that there is no guarantee that this Utopia will continue….

I live in one of the safest areas in the UK and can in many ways just turn a blind eye to the suffering and fears that other people in this country have to deal with, but I have not.

Whenever a person decides to voice their opinion there is usually a turning point and for me that was the one year anniversary for the attack on Charlie Hebdo in France.

Like many troublesome things … it all started with France…..

A post shared by The Commander In Chief (Berit) (@thecommanderinchief1) on

You see … I lived there for a year and attended school there, so I know that you will never get any good grades at all, if you don’t participate in the exchange of ideas. Yes ladies and gentlemen, this is the beauty and the essence of France’s greatness. At least in my opinion. It is all about having your say and expressing yourself, being yourself, being YOU and celebrating liberté, égalité, fraternité!

Regardless of what you might want to believe, the French are fearless. They are not interested in their rights being taken from them, they are not interested in being treated unfairly, and will march out in the streets, throw their fist in the air, and let the whole world know what they think!

Sure, I do not envy anyone working within the French Government, as that must surely be a challenging endeavour. In fact, I would probably sleep in a bunker every single night if I was Macron.

Yet it is this passion and this celebration of individualism that makes France so very fascinating, even if the French are picky when it comes to how you speak their language….

A year after the vicious attack on Charlie Hebdo I couldn’t get over it, I couldn’t let it go. Nobody else seemed to care anymore. There were no hashtags, there were no flag-filters, people were busy with their own affairs and seemed like they had forgotten.

To me it was the day that I published my very first entry about the current continental crisis that we are standing face to face with in Europe today. At the time I didn’t know as much as I know now, I’ve changed somewhat, but I knew that I had to speak my mind and speak up for our part of the world, and whether people agree with my particular values or not; that is precisely what I did.

After this I’ve expressed my opinions online continuously and can’t understand for the love of God why Britain would be interested in deconstructing itself, a phenomenon that isn’t solely English, but a cultural and political issue that can be observed all over the Western world.

In fact I’ve started to wonder if there is a biological expiration date in the “coding” and whether or not this can be credited to the self-destruction mode that apparently has been activated among people with pale complexions all over the world regardless of geography….

But that would mean giving up on The West and I’m not willing to do that. 

I myself have never participated in any protests anywhere in the world and have absolutely no crime record at all whatsoever, anywhere. In fact, if one was to dig properly, nothing can be found, besides my opinions, my sense of humour and me sending slightly (in fact very) retarded messages to people I’ve considered my friends – because yes – I do like to troll people, and yes that will sometimes result in you falling flat on your face. That being said; if I know that I’ve been acting like a fool, I will also apologise.

The idea that I could all of a sudden be some kind of an enemy due to what I’ve liked on Facebook, re-grammed on Instagram or re-Tweeted on Twitter, seems absurd. If I was to be considered a criminal due to openly supporting the US President or for opposing deconstructionism in Europe, then we’ve officially dishonoured all of those who’ve died in the past to allegedly secure us our much envied freedoms…..

I’m asking myself why people have died for their countries if their legacy is to be overshadowed by “The People’s Democratic Republic of Europe,” and that is precisely the disgusting monstrum that we’ve degenerated into if you’ll get a SWAT team crashing through your front door at night for standing with your country of residency, rather than promoting the caliphate, burning the flag and/or demanding reparations due to some legitimate or un-legitimate offence in the past.

Am I asking the Germans for money? Am I suing them? Am I eating cake when Germans are killing themselves with their self-destructive policies? The answer to all of those questions is a resounding no. I am the last person interested in a German shouting at me, which they easily resort to it seems, but even though this is true I’m not popping the champagne when their Nation is going to shit. There are people out there who want reparations now because of the TransAtlantic slave-trade, there are people who try to play all kinds of cards due to colonisation: “Remove your flag – it is a sign of imperialistic oppression.” Do you want to import these type of attitudes into your country? Well not if you want your country to survive.

When I started sharing my concerns regarding Europe here on my blog I certainly didn’t sit here with a strategic master-plan. I’ve expressed my opinions as a European resident/citizen, and these concerns are legitimate. I do not have a go-bag underneath my bed, nor do I have 50 different fake passports in my safe, nor am I currently trying to destroy my own fingertips so as to make identification harder, nor do I have a stealth-Niqab at the ready.

If you live in a dictatorship you know that liking something on a social media platform, if you even have access to such a thing, can be the equivalence of firing a shot. There are a great number of Christians out there who live in constant fear that people will find out that they have a Bible in their household. People are afraid of speaking their minds all over the world and if one thing is to be said it is that you should never go into a fight or a battle if you are ill-prepared.

If the conclusion I reach regarding our current Europe is that you must have a grand strategy in place before you can even say something at all online, then we’ve already lost. Thankfully I read this evening that it is alright for people to share the news regarding Tommy Robinson’s arrest, and that was surely a great relief. 

Now; I’m not trying to say that Robinson is a Saint, I do not know the guy, have never met him, but I’ve seen some of his content. This man loves his country and hates what it is becoming, from what I can tell. He is also the last man who I would want to piss off, because believe me, if this man feels wronged or if he is on to something, he will not stop. I’ve seen how he has confronted those who try to bring him down and that is precisely why he is now in prison.  He displays the same drive and energy that can be witnessed when mainstream media people are running after a person they want to get hold of and/or target. He is obsessed with the future of his own country and has risked everything for his cause. By throwing him into prison he has automatically been given the martyr status that any sensible opposition should have avoided. Whether he survives his very long sentence or not; he has become a symboland symbols never die.

It was clumsy to silence the press, it drew instant attention and made the story go viral. I mean look at this: http://www.breitbart.com/london/2018/05/26/redacted-arrested-for-redacted-outside-redacted-leeds-crown-court-issues-media-ban/

Since I’m a Westerner, who lives in a free democratic world, with freedom of speech as one of its/our greatest virtues – I haven’t exactly prepared for a battle. I represent the very individualism that our part of the world champions, but this also means that I’m not exactly meeting in secrecy with unofficial organisations that will have my back if I’m all of a sudden considered an official threat for being pro-English, pro-Europe, pro-French, pro-Scandinavia, pro-American – in other words – pro-West.

Am I guilty for being curious? And am I guilty if I care about the well-being of this country? You see that is the impression one can easily get….

Yesterday I got pissed off when I saw a Tweet from Gad Saad. It is certainly rich to sit over in Canada and ask oneself why on earth people aren’t talking about Mr.Robinson over here in Europe when the media has officially been told to shut up about a non-ethno-Nationalist being thrown into prison, where he will probably end up getting killed! Gad Saad doesn’t even live here, and if you all of a sudden suspect that you’ve woken up in the new USSR, then it certainly isn’t risk-free to address our current challenges, especially if you officially stand alone without any firm and/or confirmed alliances. Apparently this hasn’t crossed the mind of someone like Saad … if the gag order had not been revoked I could have concluded a much shorter entry by making a point of:

“what Mr.Robinson? There never was a Mr.Robinson in Section E-42856? Welcome to The People’s Democratic Republic of Europe!”

Thankfully I’m not ending a blog entry with these words … or at least not yet.

In other news this evening I saw that Roseanne Barr was thrown under the bus today by everyone; even Breitbart, after she Tweeted something insulting to Valerie Jarrett using the word “ape.” Now I’ve actually referred to myself as an ape in one of my older entries. I do believe it was “pale nordic ape” … but then again I do think that all humans think too greatly of themselves … we are all silly little apes caught up in silly little arguments, wasting away, consumed with petty disagreements, but I guess this thinking of mine is worthless in an age where any comment, and especially any insult, can become lethal ammunition if used right.

Roseanne Barr’s comment was clumsy and I think the reason as to why I didn’t get really, really, angry is because I’ve referred to myself as an ape in the past. Then again I cannot really see myself calling a brown-skinned individual, or a minority person, for ape, because why on earth would I? It was a really silly or thoughtless move in an age where people are looking for racism and anything they can use anywhere!

Roseanne Barr gave the left what they wanted and what they are always on the look out for … I’m guessing that it would be catastrophic if President Trump now went out and defended Mrs. Barr, because the President has to deal with his own accusations of racism, something that he seems to be battling daily. (Record Low Unemployment Rates for Minorities in the U.S.A.)

This means that Roseanne has been disavowed by everyone which is a pity, because her show was much-needed. The opposition won, or at least this time around. Roseanne’s show has to come back because it was important, and people loved it. The fact that the left dictates what is allowed or not has to come to and end, because they insult and behave badly yet somehow manage to portray themselves as having the moral high-ground time after time. As of now there are lots of politicians all over the Western world who live in fear over what the media might write about them and this results in them having no balls, quite frankly.

The deconstructionists will win if they are allowed to dictate the rules of what one ought to talk about and what one ought not to even think about. 

Written by a pale, elusive Nordic ape in desperate need of sunshine.

Love Thy Neighbour As Thyself………

The place where I live is absolutely lovely … there is just one tiny, little thing that doesn’t quite work: When Your Neighbour Surveils You Without Permission.

Yes that’s right. Back to that minuscule detail again….

This year I decided that I was going to get back to my organic, vegan, vegetable growing practise; but decided to think bigger, and hopefully better.  This year I have ambitious plans and decided to brave the elements by cleaning out the whole lot. Back in the day when my lovely Dragon was still with me I constantly had to wade through super long, horrible weeds to get to the faucet; but now I decided to annihilate everything in my way. A funny detail to note is that some of my neighbours had decided that they wanted to plant something, but rather than clearing out everything, they just took what they wanted, so as you can tell, I’ve literally surrounded their patches; in addition I’ve also created a new path to make access easy to the aforementioned faucet.

Since I was the only one who bothered to clean up everything, I decided that this is now all mine to do what I want with; but was of course very happy when my family decided to get involved with my expansionist vision. The more the merrier, and the more the more muscle power, which is sorely needed when you’ve decided to clear out other parts of the garden as well! This project has now become a major family affair. This is good news as I’m extremely keen on “prepping.” The preparedness level of people in general is horrendous. Modern people have no idea about how to survive, unless operating within a high-functioning, convenient, modern setting. Remember: we were the only people who had a working fire-place this winter! This enabled us to cook food on the open fire and keep warm when the power was down!!!

While I was engaged in the initial project of clearing out the big patch pictured, even finishing my cleaning business off by crawling on all fours to get the last annoying roots out of my way, a most unpleasant character, with no interest in the vegetable patch at all whatsoever decided to make a guest appearance and harass me, since I had the audacity to sit there and actually clear out the whole thing. I was not the only one who was treated like crap; one of the two gardeners who work at the property was threatened with getting fired since he dared to neglect his garden duties for 5 min. while speaking to me about compost…….

I do not think of it as good taste to write negatively about others or start fights, unless there is a very good reason for it. I was very angry when I published my 1st entry about one of my neighbours; since she was breaking the law by spying on not just me, but everyone else who lives here as well. In addition there were other vicious things; but the spy camera really sealed the deal for me. Even though the police was involved it took forever before the cameras were eventually taken down, in fact the police couldn’t scare her, she actually wrote an email and complained to them about their parking after they had spoken to her … eventually it was some new-comers to the property who managed to get her to remove them; yes she actually added another one after everyone had complained!

That neighbour in particular was so overly contact seeking that I couldn’t walk out of my front door without getting hijacked  by her every time, in the beginning when I lived here. Wherever I or anyone else in the family went she appeared; and this is someone who has shouted and/or harassed anyone remotely associated with this building. Whether visitors, guests, tenants, owners, contractors, lost tourists, workers; you name it.

The neighbour who decided to pay me a visit and make me feel like crap the other day, was another colourful character who wondered if I had received “permission” to sit there and remove the weeds (that nobody else on the property have bothered about) as if though I was some kind of naughty intruder. The very unpleasant neighbour also appeared but kept herself in the background, since she is not allowed to have any contact with us; she did take the liberty to scold the gardener though, as one does, (if full of crap). A fun fact is that they both came “running” out of the house the second that they saw that we were getting garden tools out to do something in that area. It didn’t even take 10 min. before they came out in full force.

The reason as to why I bother to mention this uninteresting episode is because it illustrates how unfair certain people are in their treatment of others. How arrogant some are. How petty. How conflict seeking, and how difficult it can truly be to deal with such people and situations…

A funny thing to note is that there are others who’ve obsessed a lot over ill-treatment at the hands of the evil people who live on this property, and in such situations it is of course natural to utter things such as: “Don’t think about it” or “just ignore it.”

It is especially a sign of being new to this estate that people cannot stop talking about how the place seems like a mental-asylum … I truly have no idea why people would get that impression….*cough*cough*cough*

Yet yesterday I found myself in the same situation that so many others have found themselves in. I really struggled to let go and not talk about the pettiness and bad behaviour.

It was a reminder of how some people seem to just exist to be a pest to all of those unfortunate enough to be around them; and the worst part is that if you don’t stand your ground and speak up for yourself you’ll only lose. You’ll literally be forced into a conflict situation by petty people who have nothing better to do with their time but to make others feel miserable. What a waste of everyone’s time and energy. What a waste indeed.

Summer 2017.

This year I have not posted that many pictures on my blog since I haven’t been out that much. I’ve been spending an awful lot of time indoors, bedridden, due to post-infection-syndrome. I worked on my 3rd album and my classical singing whenever I had the energy and have just recently started exercising my shoulder after nearly 9 months off due to a guitar related injury. Earlier this month I was out travelling to partake in my second season of Norway’s highest rated Saturday Night TV Show “Stjernekamp,” so I’ll post pictures from my work-trip in my next blog-entry 😉 It was lovely to finally be up and about again 🙂

I’m grateful that my family has been so sweet and understanding while I’ve been ill and I’m also thankful for the wonderful messages/comments of support from my followers. It has been heartwarming to see. Here are some pictures from the summer that was 🙂

My mom decided to surprise me 😉 I love this kind of style. A good brand making quality clothing.

I even got some flowers. They were very pretty!

Since I couldn’t really travel much, we set up a tent in the garden 😀 That was a lovely night, falling asleep while looking at satellites & stars. I saw plenty of shooting stars actually. I had no idea they were that common 😮

Out to cast my vote. Nothing was going to get in the way of me voting.

This is one of the coolest things I’ve ever been to! It was incredible to see all of the impressive work done by such a wonderful collection of true artists! I wish our society could build these type of things for real, so that we could be surrounded by beauty! Instead we have a weird mix of new and old all over Europe, and the new seldom looks good!

All the artwork featured in Harry Potter was made from scratch! Incredible! It was a joy to look upon all of these things! Anyone who loves beauty and abhors post-modernism will love the exhibition.
