New posts

Due to the extreme heat here (NO! Let me complain! I'm not used to 30°C), I haven't been doing much the past few days.. Well I have done stuff but nothing that I will be talking about here I think.

But to keep you updated I have put together a minimal list of my recent posts that you might have missed

My 3 latest posts from America!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Tomorrow I'm going out with my girls and then Friday I'm going toooo... casting!
I won't tell you for what yet, but keep your fingers crossed for me!

Here's some pictures to distract you!
Have a nice day :)

Warm days and ear surgery

The heat, the heat!
Source: vejret.tv2.dk
This is the local weather forecast for the coming few days. Do you see anything unusual? Not really, it looks like the weather in any other Southern European country right now. What a niiice week. But now the thing is.. I DON'T LIVE IN THE SOUTHERN COUNTRIES! I LIVE IN DENMARK! DEEENMARK!!! THIS IS NOT USUAL :O 

The red text up there is, of course, written in Danish so let me just casually translate it for you guys.
Varmebølge = heat wave!
But not like a HEAT WAVE heat wave... it's more of a "warmth-wave".

When the average of the highest recorded temperatures measured over three consecutive days exceeds 25°C (77°F), it's called a heat warmth wave.
Technically, it's not a real heat wave (at least in this climate zone) before that average exceeds 28°C (≈82°F).

Technically. 
But it's still hot!
And hot weather makes me lazy; hence, the sloooow updating of my blog.

To completely change the subject...
Today I had an appointment at the hospital!

Last year, before I went to America, I went to my doctor to have him look at my ears.
Ever since I was a kid, I've had troubles with them and I was just fed up!
And after doing some research on the internet, I figured that I could have a surgery done on them.
See, I've always been very self-conscious about my ears. 
When I looked at them, I imagined myself with grey skin and a long snout- like Dumbo! It was that bad.
I would, by any means, avoid putting up my hair. No buns. No ponytails. No pigtails. No nothing. 
(As a cheerleader, I always had to have my hair up during shows. It was terrible. I felt that my flappy ears 
would attract so much attention that nobody would see us dance).

During winter, I'd put on a hat to keep my head warm, we all do right?
Well putting a hat onto my straight hair would part my hair in a such way that my left ear would stick out and it would just NOT agree to be hidden under my hat.
Also, when I was a kid, I'd use headphones (or beats or whatever people call them.. you know the big ones) when listening to music and for some reason my left side would always start hurting after just 10 min. use. 
There was something wrong with my ears. I knew it. 
But whenever I talked to my friends about it, I'd get the same thing:

"Your ears look fine"
NO THEY DO NOT!

It's not just a cosmetic flaw, it also bugs my physically. 
Anyways.. once in a while I'd get some nasty comments about them. It happened as late as last year..

*Flashback*
It was last year in July. It was a hot summernight in Croatia where I was on vacation with my family. 
My best friend was there too and we had found a little group of Danish kids (teens) to hang out with in the 
evening. Some of the girls had to go to the restroom and the rest of us were just standing outside waiting for 
them when this guy looked at me. (It was really really hot and back then I had really long hair which I had put
in a ponytail because the heat was unbearable).
So I'm standing there and suddenly he laughs and says: 

"Wow, your ears are really flappy!"
"Yes", I said without much reaction. He was right.
"It's like dumbo!"
I said nothing.
"Can you take German TV channels too?" he said, cracking up.

 *Flashback out*

That was enough! 
I was tired of my ears! I was tired of hiding them! I was tired of pain from beats, not just beat but also the small
headphones now, whenever I listened to music. I was tired of not being able to wear hats. Just goddamn tired!

In the end I almost started believing that I was just too self-conscious. Maybe all those people were right?
But then I went to my doctor and as soon as I stepped in, he made a remark. It was an inborn thing!
I was right the entire time! >:(
He gave me a piece of paper and sent my to the ear-nose-and-throat section at the hospital. I'd have to go 
there and talk to them about the surgery.

Mind you, the reason I want this surgery is not because I'm afraid what people think about me- 
or my appearance.. That was something I learned while being in America. I couldn't care less about
what people think of me. So before you throw stupid comments in my direction saying stuff like: "Oooh, 
changing because of what other people think. That's so weak [insert more derogatory **** here]" then hear
this.

I AM DOING THIS FOR MYSELF!!!
Defensive? Yes. You have no idea how many people have already called me fake because of this.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I was supposed to have my surgery on July 3rd, a few days after coming back to Denmark.
The reason I had to wait for so long was that I wanted to avoid the discomfort of being awake and being able 
to hear them work on me (and that nasty "relaxing" supository. HECK NO!). 
Therefore, I'd have to wait until AFTER my trip (mind that this was before my trip so I'd have to wait around
10 months) to be under general anesthesia. I'd prefer to just be asleep. For that, I'd need a shot but I'd rather
have that than their nasty rectum pill. 

So let's forward time a bit. I wait a month, go to America, come back from America, and the next day I 
mention to my parents how excited I am to finally get it over with.

"Well.. there is something we have to tell you, Louise. The called from the hospital and .. 
your surgery has been cancelled"
"WHAT?!?!?"
"Yeah.. they called and said that the doctor one day had said 'Nope! Not doing anyore surgeries ever again!'"
and then he put on a jetpack and flew away- 
Hahah naah, he probably didn't put on a jetpack but that's how I imagine it!

So now all his upcoming surgeries, including my own, have just been cancelled and they can't even give us a freaking reason!
GRRR!!!
 (ノಠ益ಠ)ノ彡┻━┻

As if it wasn't hard enough to convince them the first time "because it was only one of the ears there was something wrong with", I'd now have to wait until yesterday to convince them AGAIN. Ugh. 
But I waited.. the day of my supposedly first surgery day passed and then I went to the hospital again yesterday. 
The new doctor could see it even before I mentioned what exactly was wrong with them and started talking to me about the different methods and stuff they use to operate. The nurse in there instructed my about pretty much everything and made sure that I had no questions when I left. 
They were both two really nice people and when I left the hospital, I had an appointment to have my ears fixed already on August 1st. Quick!
They told me I could just EAT a pill instead of that stupid rectum pill they had told me about the first place I went to, and in the end, we agreed to have the surgery done under local anesthesia instead.

I'll explain further about this later on.
Thank you for listening to my rant

I have returned!

The virus is gone!!

But I spent way too much time on it.. Really I had like 1 day where I did nothing but work on my computer.
I used a TON of different virus detectors (a lot of supposedly good ones such SuperAntiSpyware, AVG, SpyHunter (Which you can only use for detecting stuff, when it comes to removing you'll have to pay)) but none of them seemed to work.
I soon learned that it was a spyware that had infected my system and no matter what I did, it would just NOT get off my computer.
In the end I said to myself "SCREW IT! I backed my stuff up, now it's time to reboot! >:("

I'm usually really good at taking care of my computer and getting rid of whatever attacks it once in a while would have, but this one took me too much time =____=
I forgot the names (since I had more than one thing on my computer) but one of them was called "CouponDropDown".. except for that I had a "Backdoor", a Trojan, 3 Generic-something, and some evil cookies that would come back right after they had been deleted - -
Especially the CouponDropDown was a pest! It'd underline random words on websites and if I clicked on it, it'd lead me to random things. Irritating adds would show up of NOWHERE and place itself on top of things (I figured my computer was under attack when those "Woman loses 10 pounds! Doctors hate her! See her secret!" adds showed up INSIDE my dashboard when I was writing entries. Oh and whenever I opened my browser, another window filled with spam sites would open.

Okay... that only took me a day. A whole day.
After that I needed a break from my computer.
INCREDIBLE!
It's like a side-effect of having fought with my electronics.

So as I had just come home, my friends also really wanted to spend some quality time with me.
We went to the beach Monday night, I went with my friend Mette downtown Tuesday, and then yesterday my cousin came to visit and later three of my friends and I went downtown again. It's been some nice slow days without doing much, therefore I don't have a heck-load of pictures to show you guys.

BUT! 
I'm back on my computer and ready to blog again! My work on the remaining posts about America have already begun (and my search for where I backed up the pictures) so you should expect to see those soon. Until then, have these two pictures we had taken yesterday!

Infected?

Sup guys!

I'm here to proclaim war! War against a malicious trojan that has infected my dear little notebook, and thereby caused great disturbance in my blogging schedule!
(That's also why I never really finished my latest post)

I assure you that there is no danger in reading my blog.. But to be a real paranoid parrot, I've decided to not blog from it until it has been fixed.

I shall therefore use its lovely sidekick- my Samsung Galaxy SII!
(But I can't upload pictures properly so that'll also be fixed later..)

And now you might be like "Ooh.. Just use your antivirus blablabla" well I DID!!! Freaking thing had me wait up for hours and it found 8 threats. 8! And what happened then? I told it to remove them which it didn't finish before 3am.
So now my baby is all fine again, right?
NO!!

I went back on the internet and up pops all those stupid adds again!
My computer is still infected - -

What did I do today then? I scanned and I waited.. Just to figure that it STILL hasn't removed them, neither can it find them anymore..
GOSH!!!

I'll fix it soon, I just need to sit down and take a look at it. Ugh!

Meanwhile you'll be able to follow my adventures (not really, I prefer to blog about it) on my Instagram.

4th of July + update

Hey guys!
I just posted a new entry!
Check it out!

And now some random pictures from when I went to the beach today~

Jetlag, jetlag, kittens, JETLAG!

STOP! 
Before you read...

Have you checked out my latest posts? 

I know you guys have been waiting for a long time and I promise, the rest will be out soon!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 
So this pretty much describes me these days.

I've been trying to unpack but I barely have time. Same goes to energy.
Here's some senior photos I had taken at my first school. I found them while unpacking.
Do you like them? I like them c: 

Today's my 6th day here back in Denmark and I. have. JETLAG! 
I sleep from 5am to 3pm -_____- 

Now... our kittens need our attention CONSTANTLY! Seriously! They sleep for like.. 3 hours and then they get hungry. And they don't just get hungry, they get HUNGRY! 
And then they screeeeeeeam all the time and we can only feed 2 at the time (we only have 2 bottles) and the rest just keep fleeing from their little box and before you've turned around, you're sitting in an ocean of screaming kittens! 
So when you're finally done, can you put them back to sleep? NO!
They need motherly love which is completely understandable. But where do we find that? Me.
Or rather I should say my stomach/hoodies. 
They looooove sleeping inside my hoodie .. but only when I'm wearing it. Which is cute.. but they always find comfort when I'm in my most uncomfortable positions.. and you can't say no to a face like this, can you?
(NO!)
So yeah.. all the schoolkids have been on vacation since this Friday and my siblings are enjoying their time off... at their friends' houses! My dad's still working so that leaves my mom and I and those kittens are impossible for her to take care of herself. Lucy must wake up!

But I really need sleep. 
I have a plan though! 

So... how did I deal with it in America? 
Well I went back in time so back then I just had to keep myself awake. Which I can. It's easy. I love staying up late, but now they I've come home and gone ahead of my (at that point) current time, I'm clueless... or I was. 

At night I just lay down... four HOURS! And NOTHING happens. I tried with music. I tried watching some TV. I tried the pitchblack darkness. I just can't sleep.
Nor can I force myself to sleep. But I can force myself to stay up!

Therefore, I commence Operation Stay Up!
I stayed up today. I'll stay up tonight. I'll stay up tomorrow, and THEN, hopefully, I'll be exhausted enough to sleep tomorrow night. 
Wish me luck!

That was just a quick update to let you guys know that I haven't died yet .. and that I'm going to post again soon. I apologize for being so behind :( Please accept my apology let me just distract you with these cat pictures~
