It can't possibly go well!

Just realized something. We are having a party on Saturday night, and I have a date on Sunday at 12.30 in the afternoon.

This means I will probably be in less than perfect shape on the date. Also, it's a first date and we are going to see a movie - I have a tendency to fall asleep watching movies even when I'm not hung over. And best of all, the movie is a Danish movie called "The Truth About Men", so if I do manage to stay awake, it can still be a bit awkward.

So to summarize, first date, hangover, movie called "The Truth About Men". Not sure this is a very good plan.

five, six, seven, eight and one two three four

So, right now is rather hectic. Just to sum it up, 12 hour workdays, exhibition opening tomorrow, on Friday I'm a showgirl, filmfestival and reception at the embassy on Saturday, more filmfestival and perhaps a date on Sunday.

Dancing on my own

So, yesterday's date got cancelled. The guy had fallen asleep. He did send me a text appologizing for this and asking what I was doing later that night. I told him I have no plans and told him to let me know if he's going out. Didn't hear from him again. Wtf!? I mean, I'm not looking for a relationship or even a fling, I just want to get to know people as this town, and this country, is new to me. But still, who does he think he is standing me up?? Anybody, boy, girl, man or woman, should feel priviliged to be allowed my company!

Anyway, I do not let strangers mess up my plans, so I went to the Opera house on my own. They screened a documentary about a Norwegian artist up on the roof of the Opera house. It was actually quite amazing, one of the best documentaries I've ever seen. Beautiful. Artistic without being pretentios, funny without being corny. So after all it was a good night.

Today Rex called. He had a hangover and asked if I wanted to go to a museum with him. I'm always up for art. He picked me up and we went. He says he is a fuck up. He doesn't like his job, it is just something he does to pay the rent. He says he would like to do something more creative. What is stopping you I asked. I think he is trying to impress me. It is kind of sweet in a way. I think he means well. I think he is a bit lost between his early 20s and the now approaching 30. How do you become the man you want to be?

Got a show for next Friday. Doesn't pay at all, but since I'm new in town I guess I have to do some of these first to make a name for myself. It's just a hair-show but it does include some choreography and trapeze. Most importantly, I get to be on stage and blow people's minds.

Life is beautiful

I've got a feelin....woohoo

So guess who has got a date tomorrow? Well, it is not exactly a date, I'm not looking for anything. But it sort of a date. We are going to a poetry slam and after that a concert. Looking forward to it!

There is also a party tomorrow night that I intend to go to. So tomorrow has all potential of being a good day!

Tonight we are keeping the gallery open until 9.30pm. It's the night of the arts in town. We'll have a DJ here and some refreshments (beer). I'm hoping we get a good turn up!

My flatmates are probably coming and I'm not so sure how I feel about that. They are super nice, but one of them can be a bit of a drama queen when there is alcohol involved. And in my opinion drama belongs on stage or on screen, and by the age of almost 30 you should most definitely know how to behave, be there alcohol involved or not!

Also, the guy I wrote about last post (I think), I'll see him again tonight at practice. Still a bit confused about that, but sticking to my theory that it is a lack of physical intimacy on my part and the fact that he is a very warm person around who I feel very....I guess safe would be a good word. But, I know from experience that mixing up feeling safe with having a crush is not a good thing to do. Safe is nice, but in the long run quite boring. And by the time you realize you are not in to the other person, you just like how safe he makes you feel then you might already be in a very tricky situation.

hush hush

Living quietly... trying to change it. Flatmate got home last night around 3am and she wasn't alone. Found men's clothing all over the livingroom this morning when I got up to go to work.

Met a friend yesterday, male one, and it was...weird. He's super nice and sweet but not at all my type physically, yet it just felt strangely nice being close to him. What is going on? Is it just lack of intimacy? I'm guessing it is. Will se him again today AND tomorrow (sort of work related).

Later tonight I'm going to some exclusive shopping event. As if I could afford shopping with this stupid interns salary! Hah. But there will be free wine, so I'm going regardless.

I'm getting old

It is Saturday night and I am at home. Watching war documentaries and doing laundry. Things were different a week ago.

Note to self: staring with mouth wide open is not very subtle

So, there was that release party last night. It was great, good food and as much sparkling wine as one could ever drink (seriously, it never ended, no matter how many times we filled up our glasses), gorgeous men all over the place, great music. Everything you could ever wish for on a night out. I felt like a child in a candy-store, eyes wides as plates and just spinning constantly around checking out all the men!

Didn't make it to my own apartment last night. Must say, it was a bit tricky finding my way to work today as I had no idea where in this city I was when I woke up. But it was a good night, for sure.

Why do they not make videos like this anymore?

About to implode because of my urge

It's that feeling. I don't know if it is something everybody has. But I just feel this insane creative urge in me and I don't have an output for it!! I feel there is so much inside of me that I want, need, to get out. I feel like I'm meant to do something big. Does it sound crazy? Delusional?

Instead I'm sitting here surrounded by others creativity and listening to Kid Cudi...

Moved in to new apartment yesterday! Promise to post some pictures of it soonish.
