For the lack of a better picture
In case you haven't read some of my Twitter updates, I lost my iPod a couple of days ago when I was going to the orientation for new students at the Høyskolen. I had that iPod for a grand total of about 1 day and some hours.
I was pretty upset about it.
So, it got me thinking, it is quite crazy how some pieces of metal could cause so much emotion, when I am really not generally a person who ever cries or show any sad emotion. So, why suddenly so emotional?
I knew it was not because it costs a lot of money. I could buy another.
I knew it was not because it was brand new, but that mattered too. Just not significant enough.
But I think deep inside knew I want it back so badly, because Magnar gave it to me. And one way or another, he has worked for it. And here I was, being an ass and losing it like it was not at all important.
So when I insisted Magnar yelled at me for being so stupid. The first thing he said was "You silly girl" and he was not at all mad at me. Which made me, even madder at myself. And for a whole entire day, I was insisting he at least yells at me. Get mad at me.
He did none of that, but insisted it was a silly iPod. I don't think people would understand this, but I felt horrible and I thought, it would make me feel better if he was mad at me.
To cut this short, I found it back yesterday, after asking literally every random person I know if they have seen an iPod lying about. But the whole event just made me realize how, really, money can't always buy everything. And to some extent, I am quite a sentimental person
And Magnar, as much as I complain about him, he is really quite amazing. So you team Magnar people, take your credit. Rub it in my face. Hrmph.
I cant wait for the trip Scotland munchkin. :)
I got paid today! First paycheck, and already with 50% to taxes. Since I didn't hand in my tax forms.
Gee, Thank You.
I will get it back next year, so... sigh*
But, now I see how working is addicting. And I want to try this lifestyle for a year!
In addition, I have decided after attending a few days at the Høyskolen/College, I don't want that lifestyle this year. So, I will need to go on serious job hunt this week.
