My boyfriend and I are going to see The Lumineers tonight! I'm so excited! We immediately bought the tickets in September when I found out they were giving a concert in Copenhagen. There were only a few tickets left so I couldn't wait for my birthday in case they got sold out. So instead I bought a ticket as an early Christmas present for myself. My boyfriend likes them as well so he tagged along and bought a ticket too. Earlier this year I experienced the amazing hip-hop duo Macklemore & Ryan Lewis and only in a couple of hours I’m going to see and listen to one of my favourite bands, The Lumineers.

I think there is something gruesome happening with me - I'm in a serious Christmas mood! I've been Christmas shopping, I made a squeaky sound of excitement when I saw snow yesterday, I voluntarily went outside to enjoy the sight of what seemed like a white soft duvet surrounding every single corner, I’m looking forward to decorate the apartment today, I’ve collected twigs and pine cones from our park, and right now I’m listening to the Michael Bublé Christmas album. Honey, call the doctor!

I have wanted to blog earlier and make small updates but I have been so busy! Crazy busy! I have been doing so many things lately but the fun part is I actually can’t remember what I’ve been doing. I just know I’ve been busy and I’ve missed blogging. Perhaps doing a bunch of stuff has made me want to write about it. When I finally have time to do so I’ve used that time to rest instead. Now when I’m finally fully rested I have of course forgotten all my recent activities and thoughts. So since I can't remember what I've been doing except from school and a bit of Christmas shopping I just want to say Merry Christmas in here! I can’t believe it's already December and a new year is just right around the corner. I thought I would turn into a Grinch {just less furry and green} on the first day of December, since I usually hate Christmas, but not this year. I don't know if it's the many strings of glittering lights outside or the beautiful orange sky early in the morning that has un-Grinched {yes, that’s a word now} me. Maybe it’s because my sweet sweet sweet boyfriend has given me the ultimate advent calendar of all time! I wish you all a very merry Christmas :-)

It is pouring outside! How cosy! I wish I could hide under my soft duvet, eat cookies, drink tea or a cup of hot chocolate and rewatch ‘Pride & Prejudice’ - but I have to start writing a report. We are currently doing our second project and it is to be hand in this Friday. It is going well with it. I am content with my group and we haven’t had any struggles yet. By the way my lecturer has seen my first project, evaluated it, and I have passed! Before I started at the academy I was curious about how they would grade us. Therefore I have attached my lecturer’s comments {last image} if some future Multimedia Design students are here and curious as well. This is how they evaluated my first project at my academy. Well, unfortunately that report won't write itself. Till we meet again Mr. Darcy.

Apple season! My boyfriend and I visited my mom in Stenlille last weekend. H plucked a bunch of apples from the backyard and today I decided to make an apple cake. Sabe bien!
I have a break from school this week but I have a school project which I have to focus on one of these days. I’m just so busy with a lot of other stuff but at least I’ll not get bored. Today I have done a ton of practical stuff at home, been in town in search of a specific pen, visited my beloved library and been to the grocery store. This evening I have to catch up on some books with a cup of orange tea and a slice of apple cake.

Say hello to my new computer and mouse! My previous computer {Fernando Jr.} is still going strong but I knew I needed one which is faster and had either Windows 7 or 8 {Fernando Jr. has Vista} for my education. My boyfriend helped me search for a new computer and we found two which I liked. It was between this Asus and a Packard Bell. Even though the Packard Bell was a bit cheaper I picked this Asus. I picked Asus because it is lightweight which is quite appropriate since we have to take a laptop to school every single day. And it is indeed very light! The Asus screen size is 13,3” and the Packard Bell was 15,6”. And the other reason I picked the Asus is because I could try and feel it at my local store and the Packard Bell was found online. So here is my new laptop named Lynch! The model is S300C. The only downside with it is it has Windows 8 and I really really really dislike Windows 8. Luckily my boyfriend did his magic and now it looks like Windows 7. Hooray! 

An enormous thanks to my dad {Får} for donating some money for the laptop. And another huge thanks to my boyfriend for helping me out, installing loads of programs, being patience while I rant about Windows 8 and buying me a new mouse and a mouse mat. Thank you!

It has been exactly a month since I started at the academy and here is a short update about it. It is good to be back to reading books, learning substance, taking notes, using the brain and being creative. Our subjects are interesting and the one I find the most exiting right now must be ‘Design and Visualisation’. I guess it is because it is within this subject you can unfold your creativity. I like all of my lectors, well there is one whom I find just a tiny bit too dull for my taste. My classmates seem nice. I haven’t really been social because my focus and priority is to study, gain knowledge and learn to become skilful in this area. There are so many students in my class and I know it is a bad excuse and it is embarrassing having being there for a month now, but I still don’t know many of my classmate’s names! But they do really all seem like good people and I know they are very helpful too. So to sum it all up I’m very positive and happy about taking an AP degree in Multimedia Design and Communication at Copenhagen Business Academy.

My boyfriend has been working in Aarhus for four days now so I have been home alone. I really like being alone so I have taken the advantage of it. I know I can do all my crazy stuff when H is here but I guess you go a lot crazier when you are alone. These past two days has been even more fun since we haven’t had classes because we have to hand in an assignment tomor-row. This mean I have been at home all alone {well, that’s actually not true. Basse is here too!} for two days straight. These past two days I’ve been dancing like a mad lady, listened to ‘The Lumineers’ on repeat, ate too many biscuits, watched the whole season two of ‘New Girl’ and then stalked David Walton. And of course I’ve been working on my assignment as well! The assignment is to make a portfolio in Wordpress and to create a HTML-page. This is an amusing assignment and I have really enjoyed working on it {I do hope I have understood the task assignment!}. I just finished the assignment this evening and I can’t believe it all went smoothly {linking to my HTML-page doesn’t count as a problem. It simply was a misunder-standing!}. The HTML and CSS was fun playing with, editing the pictures on Photoshop went well and I’m satisfied with the portfolio itself. Here is a link to my portfolio. Good night... Wait, I hear 'How I Met Your Mother' is back! ;-)

Good morning! Guess what? Yep, it’s my Birthday! But that’s actually not the fun part. The fun part is I’m now twenty-two! My lucky number! I know I’m odd but I just like that number very much. This number fits me well. So I’m going to enjoy today. This evening I’m eating out together with two of my favourite people. I wish my best friends from Aarhus could join us but unfortunately they can’t. We’ll see each other soon anyway so I have something to look forward to. Tomorrow I’ll be celebrating with the family. First at my dad’s where I’ll eat delicious homemade cheesecake and drink tea. Later with my mom and com. where we will eat at a lovely restaurant. There is a lot of great eating to do! Hooray! Omnomnomnom!

Do you know about the Belbin Team Inventory? It’s a personality test but not equivalent to those personality type tests such as the MBTI. The test examines the individual’s behaviour in a team environment. In class today we took the test. Before taking the test I guessed which team role profile I would end in. Below are taken from my class notes which shows my assumptions. 

>Action Oriented<                                    >People Oriented<                                 >Thought Oriented<
Shaper %%                                                    Coordinator %                                             Plant ++
Implementer +                                             Team Worker %+                           Monitor/Evaluator %     
Completer/Finisher ++               Resource Investigator/Networker %%                      Specialist %+

“%” is negative and “+” is positive. As you can see I guessed myself to end up in “Completer/finisher” and/or “Plant”. And my assumptions were correct! I scored 25 points in the profile as a Plant and 22 points as a Completer/Finisher. I got 0 points in Resource Investigator/Networker just what I thought. It’s fun to see where your strengths and weakness lie and to compare your results with your classmates. This test is said to be very helpful when building a team because you know which profiles are more cooperative with specific profiles. Below you can read a bit about the Plant profile {highest score} and the Networker profile {lowest score}. These definitions are borrowed from my test.

Imaginative, creative and unorthodox.
May have difficulty to accept criticism and shut off and put himself outside the group.
Individualistic, dominant and sometimes overbearing.
Introverted person, but on an uncharacteristic and uninhibited style.
Looking completely new angles.
Goes own way - does not look at the relevance of the group and may insult if someone gets in the way.

{Network driver/creative dealer}
Outgoing and curious.
Social, enthusiastic and communicative.
Easily connect with others.
May forget to follow up on agreements.
Good at improvising and starting new things but may lose interest relatively quickly.
Sense of new relevant ideas.

Which profile are you?

Delicious apples and plums all the way from Thisted where my father in law and his wife lives. Thank you! Have a nice weekend everybody!

I received my copy of ’HTML & CSS - design and build websites’ by Jon Duckett yesterday. I’ve only read the first few pages but I can already say it’s an excellent book. I’m a complete newbie with HTML and CSS so I wanted to find a book which could teach me the basics. When I found this book on Amazon I immediately purchased it and I’m glad I did so because this book teaches you the fundamentals in a very comprehensible and simple way. It is well structured, easy and fun to read, and has many great visual examples. A must have for rookies!

Here is my first and very short time-lapse video. My boyfriend and I went to the same location today. I wanted to make a time-lapse with the trains but the place wasn’t ideal for it since the trains didn’t come that often. The cars must do it for now. 

Tuesday, 10 September 2013


My body is still cold after being outside shooting time-lapse for several hours on the top of Tivoli Hotel. And what’s the first thing I do when we come home? Eat ice cream. Of course. How clever. It was raining, windy and it got quiet cold but the view was so beautiful. There’s just something calming about looking at trains passing by. So while H did his stuff I drank tea, prepared a test for tomorrow and from time to time glanced at the bypassing trains.

We were introduced to HTML today and played with it in Notepad. I haven’t tried it before and I found it very interesting and fun {especially if you are making your own little Twin Peaks website!} Our first project is to make a portfolio in WordPress. In the portfolio we have to link to a page which we have made from scratch. This page will contain descriptions and pictures from our trip to Louisiana. So the plan for today is to pick some photographs I took in the museum, edit them in Photoshop and afterwards begin to make this {scratch} page. Later today my boyfriend will be making some time-lapse in town where I’ll accompany him. Have fun out there!

I can’t really brag about the amount of pages in our study books for this semester. At least I’m not going to have a backache. All the books except ’20 Designprincipper’ are bought used so I have saved 338 kroners. Ka-ching! The books are:
*‘Digital Media Management’ by Louise Harder Fischer & Marie Oosterbaan
*’20 Designprincipper’ by Ian Wisler-Poulsen
*’29 Spørgsmål’ by Jan Krag Jacobsen
*’Usability’ by Ole Gregersen & Ian Wisler-Poulsen

It has been another exciting day in school - well actually - away from the classroom. Today’s field trip went to Louisiana Museum of Modern Art. Most of the art in this museum doesn’t appeal to me but I did find myself gazing at some oil paintings and figures made of bronze. The exhibition you can see there right now is YOKO ONO HALF-A-WIND SHOW. We weren’t there just for the sake of fun. We were given a photo task:

“Your task is to document a trip to an exhibition. You must take photos of you and your friends. “A student’s visit to Louisiana”. Your photo material shall act as raw material for a Photoshop course and workshops next week.”

I have taken exactly 600 pictures at the museum today. Here are some bits of them.

September is finally here! The beautiful autumn has replaced summer and I can’t wait to taste the rain, enjoy looking at the warm and deep colours around me and hoping, for just one single autumn day, for an Indian summer. September also means students going back to/starting school/university/academy. And I’m one of those lucky fellows. I started at Copenhagen Business Academy yesterday. The first day of school was okay. I’m not good at meeting new people because I’m really shy and awkward so I wasn’t really excited for yesterday. But as I said everything went okay. If I heard correctly we are 120 Multimedia Design and Communication students, 40 of them which are international students. My class is called ‘MulB’ {once again I’m a lucky ‘B’} and we are located at room C21, just next to the international students’ room, C22. I’m looking forward to meeting- and working together with them. As well with the Computer Science students.

Today was more exciting. We started the day with an introduction to graphic design. I’m feeling this will be one of my favourite subjects. Our lecturer talked roughly about colours, textures, typography, images, forms, the CRAP design principle, sizes, texts, patterns, the golden section/golden mean etc. I can’t wait to learn more of this. Afterwards we talked about the basic of the Internet. E.g. the different types of websites, screen resolutions, file sizes, bandwidths etc.. If you guys are interested in web design, coding, graphic design and so on, here are three websites our lecturer introduced us to today {click 'em}:

At last we talked about practical stuff such as Fronter, webmail, exams, internships etc. Fine day. Now I’m off to prepare dinner!

I went shopping with my mom today and I was so close to give in several times. But I didn’t! Bye beautiful boots, bye warm and soft {hobo} jacket, bye pretty cushion covers and I could go on like this the whole evening. I did some restocking instead and bought acrylic paints, gloss varnish medium and a masking tape. Even though I did a pretty good job keeping my coins in my purse today, I can’t promise they will remain staying there tomorrow at the flea market.
