mine;*

season 3 of skam was the most authentic, well-written piece of media i’ve seen probably ever. experiencing it in real time was like reading your favourite book, one you didn’t want to put down the first time you read; one you’ve re-read countless times and dog-eared, highlited, and scribbled in so much it’s almost intelligible. 

season 3 taught me what it was like to see myself in someone else’s eyes through mainstream television. being gay is one of the hardest struggles i’ve ever faced, doubled with the burden of being trans. whilst season 3 doesn’t necessarily touch basis on the aforementioned, it sheds light on the lgbtq+ community as a whole, something we can all take from, straight or queer.

being pansexual and seeing straight cis boys discussing my sexuality like it’s not some made up, tumblr bullshit thing is so rewarding. hearing about bipolar disorder and how ugly it can be, how love doesn’t save you but the promise of a future certainly will is so rewarding. how depression isn’t fun or pretty and often leaves a sour taste in your mouth, something your lover will never rescue you from is so rewarding. seeing that, so raw and tender laid out in front of me, is something i’ll never forget, near into the future. mania is scary. mania is awful and ugly and pulses through your veins and bruises your skin. mania is manageable, though, and i never thought i’d see such split open love for queer, mentally ill people.

season 3 of skam was a ride. one that made my stomach sink and my heart twist and bend. one i didn’t want to get off of. the acting was the most phenomenal display of tangible emotion, and i quickly got addicted and sucked into it. 

isak valtersen is one of the most developed characters i’ve had the pleasure of seeing. he’s flawed and ripped at the edges, but he’s also kind and caring and loyal. watching him go from a snotty, slightly misogynistic 15 year old boy blinded by love for his best friend to an out 17 year old living with his boyfriend and tackling the future for himself, his partner, and his friends was a wonderful experience.

gullruten or not, tarjei sandvik moe and his character isak valtersen are everything in my eyes.

dorm tips!!

since everyone is moving into dorm, i thought i could share from my 3+ years of experience of sharing my living space with someone else:

  • okay you pups always keep some extra batteries and lightbulbs; you don’t want it to be 11pm and have no stores open anymore
  • put things on your walls, it’ll automatically make you feel more at home
  • change the locks on your drawers
  • always, always check with your roomate(s) if it’s okay to bring people over; even if it happens spontainously, sending a text when you’re on your way means the world
  • don’t ever, ever let cooked food out for longer than an hour; it just gets super gross and no one wants to deal with that
  • make sure to discuss with your roommate(s) the details regarding the quality of both of your lives: plan a cleaning/washing dishes schedule and stick to it
  • headphones will save your ass ~
  • ask your roommate(s) out from time to time; they’re probably as lost, homesick and new to this as you and it doesn’t hurt to just be… nice
  • have at least 4 cups and extra pillows (throw pillows are OK)!! you never know when you’ll spend lazy afternoons with your friends and you will want to make their stay as comfortable as possible
  • don’t keep your lamp open after 10-11pm. it’s common sense
  • extension cords are the bomb!! have one with you
  • don’t go anywhere without slippers; dorms are dirtier than you might think
  • sharing food is everything, we’re all hungry and broke students
  • don’t bottle things in, you’ll only turn bitter. if something bothers you, talk it out with the person.
  • dry shampoo is a must; it’ll save so much time when you’re in a hurry and don’t want your hair to look gross
  • keep in touch with the people you left behind; skype sessions with people you didn’t even realize you’ve missed are healing the soul
  • air freshener might seem like an unneded addition, but it’ll help so much in making the room feel more put together; especially if all you’ve done in the past days was study. related to that: open your windows
  • have an extra alarm clock! no matter how reliable your phone may be, at some point it will fail you
  • coupons? COUPONS!
  • folding is tricky and the only way to make it better is to practice. or, if you want to save space, you can just roll your clothes
  • it won’t be only about what you want anymore, but more about what you need; weigh carefully if you need another phonecase!!
  • if dorm is too loud, most buildings come with a study space that you can use almost anytime. really, go there
  • your college cafeteria might as well be your cheapest resource when it comes to a proper, warm meal, try to eat some soup at least once/month
  • bedding costs A LOT. okay, there’s nothing shameful in using some old ones, even if it features the most colorful cartoons
  • don’t borrow anything without asking. ever. 
  • everyone seems nice at the beggining; make sure you don’t plan your whole life around the roommate who might turn out to be an asshole

any more tips added are appreciated! send me in any question that you mgiht have or tell me about your dorm experience!!
