Mama i’m coming home!
So for the first time this decade. ill be back in Norway, my dear native country. What an odd sentence to utter. to think i haven’t been home at all this decade. it just dawned on me as i wrote this.
My and my lovely Glitter are going to Norway to say hello to my family, to get a small break from the strikes and negative hassle that comes with that. And truly just to breathe in some of home before all the assessments and things really start closing in with their due dates and the true stress of being a student sets in. I feel very excited about the trip in its totality, dipping my toe back into having family nearby, and to try and work around having this massive task of the website to try and make work, have the podcast to record. All of this work i’ve set myself up to do for myself. along with the DDPY stuff i’ve been chasing actively…. kinda.
I look forward to hugging them all.
a big thing as mentioned on the podcast is also the fact that i am finally, after 6 months. Ill have a personal computer again. and with that the opportunity to create from home. Its been so long that im just itching at this point, itching and aching to get my hands on a computer that works and that allows me the stability i haven’t had. Because my workflow for the past 6 months in doing the website. On days where i havent had lectures and studies, Its been wake up, walk to the university. Log in on a mac at the MMC. And work through all the opening hours until late at night. building features, writing content, making changes, designing resources, booking hosts, making shows. ETC ETC. i make it almost sound like a complaint. it really isn’t, but in all this, ive been dependent on cloud storage and having everything put all over the place. and with that, i actually lost a backup of all my files from my first mac. Meaning, just about every file i had. They are gone.
You would think thats has me just shattered and unmotivated and such. and rightly so. Yet to me, its all just material things. it can all be reproduced and recovered by different means, and the challenge is therefore finding all of those things and being better about backing them up somewhere that i can find them later. its much more-so a learning experience and that makes it much more positive somehow to me.
Enough ramble i suppose. Yo Family! I Look forward to giving you a big big hug, and seeing you soon! <3
