I forgot to say.......

Happy new year!
It is a little late, I know
But isn´t time relative anyway? ;-)
Besides, I wanted to show these photos I took,
which I think came out pretty cool

Funny test

This test is based on the Briggs Meyers temperamental test, which again is based on Jungian psychology. Of course this is a popular playful and quite unserious version of it, but still fun
Try t out and tell me what you get

ENFP (Extroverted, Intuitive, Feeling, Perceptive)

Your type is known as the Champion type, which is part of the larger group called idealists. Nothing occurs that does not have some deep and ethical significance in your eyes. You see life as an exciting drama. You are very charismatic, yet tend to be too harsh on yourself for not being as genuine as you think you should be. 3% of the population shares your type.
As a romantic partner, you need to talk about what is going on in your life. You are a strong supporter for your partner's efforts to grow and change and be happy. You need to feel that same support from your partner. Expressive, optimistic, and curious, you are eager to enjoy new experiences with your partner, whom you wish to be your confidant and soul mate, as well as play mate. You are uncomfortable sharing negative emotion, though, and tend to withdraw from confrontation and process your feelings privately. You feel most loved when your partner appreciates your creativity, accepts your uniqueness, and sees you as the compassionate person you are. You need to hear your partner tell you how much you mean to them and would love if they did thoughtful spontaneous things to demonstrate it.
Your group summary: idealists (NF)
Your type summary: ENFP

Homecountry illusions

It is so strange.....I seem to loose a piece of who I really am every time I go to Norway.
I never discover it before I am in an other country again.
Then it is like I slowly wake up and all the thoughts I had in Norway were dreams.
It is not even like waking up from a dream, it is like stepping out of a nightmare, only you thought your nightmare was real and what you wanted. Norway makes me scared, small, controlling, unfree and afraid of life.
And getting out of there makes me see again that life is beautiful, that things are only frightening if you choose that perspective, that life is free and full of mysteries and lovely, lovely things.

And then it freaks me out a little that reality can be that twisted, just how you created it.

Weird, weird, weird.
Anybody else every had it like that about their "home"?
~ Åsa

Talking about illusions - I took this photo from the balcony of my mothers house in Norway
Anybody who knows what that weird black thing on the cloud is?

And never stops at all."

..... a little message
from a blog girlie
that has been silent for quite a while

Life is good
Keep passing the open windows
Fly like a colibri

Norway melancholia

I am back in Barcelona
I always feel a little melancholic to leave Norway, my friends, family and all
but it is good to be back in this city, which is so pulsing and full of life.
Every time it feels like waking up from a silent, calm, sweet dream,
which Norway softly wraps me into

Will post some Norway photos as soon as I have them processed
Hugs to you all and sorry for leaving this blog so silent for so long

~ Aasa
