Inspirerende

Blogg

Jeg husker det var en spesielt regnfull sommer, der jeg var på hytta i type seks av åtte uker av ferien. Heldigvis hadde jeg min lille, hvite MacBook. Det var på denne jeg oppdaget mine første blogger. Det var et relativt nytt fenomen på denne tiden,  mens skulle senere ta helt av. Bloggen til Maria Van Nguyen var en av disse første bloggene jeg leste. Vanilla Scented som den het den gangen. Siden da har hun graduert fra Parsons og blitt designer basert i Oslo og New York. Bloggen handler selvfølgelig om dette, men også om hvordan man kan leve et enklere, men fullere liv, reise og mat. Elsker når blogger er helt genuine, får deg både til å reflektere, samtidig drømme seg bort.

“Instagram is making us more insecure than ever by showcasing us a ‘perfect’ insight on regular peoples lives who are really just showing a small percentage of who they are. What we see isn’t real and most feeds are curated to show people’s best sides. This evokes jealousy and unhealthy comparisons. All this is accompanied by numbers as if it’s a popularity contest – and it affects you and you strive to gain more followers and likes too. How do you get that? By doing what’s popular and then you end up lacking of originality, quality and personality because you’re not doing it for yourself any more.”

Podcast

For meg er radio sommer. Stå opp sent og sette på p3. Ettermiddager i hagen med sommer i p2. Lange turer med Ekko, Radioresepsjonen, Serial eller This American Life. Jeg må si at jeg er dårlig til å oppdage nye podcaster. Men, her om dagen kom jeg over The New York Times’ Modern Love . Episodene er historier fra forskjellige folks liv.

“I had good days, and I had bad days. On the good days, I took the high road. I ignored his lashing out, his merciless jabs. On bad days, I would fester in the August sun while the kids ran through sprinklers, raging at him in my mind. But I never wavered. Although it may sound ridiculous to say “Don’t take it personally” when your husband tells you he no longer loves you, sometimes that’s exactly what you have to do. “

Instagram

Jeg har et hat/elsk-forhold til Instagram. Noen ganger følger jeg for mange urelevante mennesker, og det gir meg litt negativ energi.  Så jeg prøver å fylle feeden min med mennesker som har mer inspirerende instagram-profiler. Dette er i utgangspunktet en blogg, men jeg følger instagrammen hennes også. @Fireandjoy eller bloggen her. Hun er en utrolig dyktig fotograf, liksom på det stadiet at man får gåsehud av enkelte fotografier. I tillegg skrildrer hun livet så vakkert.

The more I experience in life, the more I begin to see signs. The moon is full when I’m filled to the brim, a friend calls just as I’m thinking about them, I get a gig just when I’m worrying how I’ll make ends meet. I’ve found myself becoming superstitious after years of being a skeptic of anything I couldn’t prove. But what is the point, even if it isn’t scientifically true, of taking the magic out of life? I’m returning to the way I used to think as a child. It seems to me that as tragic as my move to this city felt when it happened, it was meant to happen to meet Bee. To me, his very existence proves my kind of magic exists.”
