March week 11 >> Always Choose Happy >> Beginning of week
I started off thinking, oh lets try minimal this week, so started off with just the left hand side day heading. Then added washi… then coloured some flowers … then yeah this happened :) tried something new with some weekly goals to keep me on track, as well as a tracker to see how I go.
P.S. Being new to this studyblr community I never realised how beauiful and creative some planner spreads could be! So I totally went and bought some brush pens, cute sticky notes, plus other stationery that I totally *needed*. So watch this space and I’ll be posting how I go with the goodies.
Sana’s phone goes off. The text from the app iBønn (iPrayer) reads: It’s time for Duhr.
Text from mom: Join the theme night at the mosque on Friday, about women’s role in Islam.
Text from Sana: Is Jamilla coming?
Text from mom: Oh, Sana. Don’t think so.
Text from Sana: I’ll be there ❤️
Sana walking towards Even and Isak. Even’s laughing.
Isak: We have to celebrate.
Even: Yeah, I bought sparkling.
Even: Isn’t that what one celebrates with?
Isak: I want beer.
Even (to Sana): So now you’re coming.
Sana: Am I late?
Isak: We’re done.
Sana: Noo, sorry I was …, the tram went in the wrong direction and-
Mahdi: Yeah, I’ve heard that one before..
Mahdi: The tram went in the wrong direction.
Jonas: You?? Huuuh.
Isak: Isn’t that what you do when-
Mahdi: Yeah, it’s what I do when I don’t wanna come to stuff.
Isak: But uh, you can join Even and me, and help us unpack?
Sana: That sounds like super fun, but I’m super busy. Are the girls upstairs?
Magnus: Sana, can you tell Vilde that I miss her? Already?
Mahdi: What’s up?
Magnus: No, you say to a girl that you miss them and they go like ‘Aww!’
Jonas: Nah, that’s not what they do.
Even: Is it just like that with girls?
Isak: But you’re cute.
Magnus: Cuter than you two.
Even and Isak: Ooh! (inaudible)
The girls eating pizza.
Vilde: No, it’s something about that ocean blue colour that’s-
Chris: Ocean blue?
Chris: Ocean blue or royal blue?
Noora: No, royal blue is like your sweater.
Vilde: No, it’s like Marbella Beach.
Noora: Marbella Beach! Have you been there a lot?
The girls: Hey!
Sana: What’s up?
Eva: Noora’s gotten her room back!
Vilde: But what I was saying..
Eva: You want pizza?
Vilde: yesterday we tried out a new position..
Sana shakes her head.
Vilde: that we found online.
Eva: We’ve got beef, too.
Vilde: eh, which was that I sit on top of him, just like cow girl, but I reversed it, so it’s a reversed cow girl, so he sits…it’s a bit uncomfortable in the beginning, because I felt like it was him looking straight up…’cause his head is like..on…and if we did it right, eh, it was so insanely hot. It hit just…it hit, it hit the G-spot.
Chris: No. Isn’t the G-spot on the top side?
Vilde: No, I’ve heard the G-spot is in the ass.
Eva: isn’t that just boys?
Vilde: It’s many who claim that you have several g-spots. But the thing is, I’ve never felt so hot with anyone before, I’ve never come so much as I do now when I’m with Magnus. It’s just like… I’m coming and coming and coming.
Sana: Do you have like NO boundaries? For what is okay to share?
Vilde: mwibth mwhat?
Sana: With you and Magnus’s sex life?
Vilde: I get that it’s hard for you to listen to since you can’t have sex, but-
Sana: I can have sex, Vilde. I just choose not to.
Vilde: Yeah, I’m just saying that uh.. it’s completely fine if you get sexually frustrated.
Sana: I’m not sexually frustrated. It’s not like I walk around thinking about boys and sex and feeling that I’m missing out on something.
Sana: I just mean that..sex should be something beautiful between you and Magnus. And not the whole world.
Noora:….anyone want some tea?
The girls: yeah! that would be..
Eva: Okay, I need to say something, but I don’t know if it’s true, but I heard that William’s gotten a new girl in London.
Vilde: Huh?! Are you kidding?
Eva: Chris said so. Should I tell her?
Sana: Of course you have to tell her!
Eva: But shouldn’t William be the one to tell her?
Sana: Uh, yeah. But he obviously hasn’t.
Eva: But I don’t know for sure if it’s true. And sometimes I don’t get the deal with William and Noora, are they like…together? Or not?
Noora comes back with tea cups.
Noora: What’s up? What are you talking about?
Vilde: Uh, about anal sex. Magnus and I were thinking we’re maybe gonna try it. Have you tried?
Vilde: You and William, you don’t..
Noora: Vilde. No.
Eva: Apropos William. How’s he doing?
Chris (off screen): Yeah. We’ve never really gotten the deal between you..if you’re together or..not…or..not..or?
Noora: It’s always gonna be me and William..
AND THAT’S OUR #SEASONSANA KICK OFF!!! SAY GOODBYE TO YOUR SOCIAL LIVES, BABES!
One plate for me, and one plate for you👌🏼🍴🍃 just kidding, in reality we all know they’re both for me😉
I never get much time to make interesting meals during the week because of my busy Uni schedule, so experimenting with different recipes on the weekends is something I ALWAYS look forward to🙏🏼
Today I tried out these delicious ‘Bunte Bratkartoffeln’ or 'colourful sautéed potatoes’ from the beautiful Fanny @fannythefoodie’s cookbook + I think I’ve found a new favourite👅👅
Paired with my 'meat-less’ balls, plenty of greens, avo + homemade sauerkraut✨
What’s on your plate today??
I’m loving these autumn colours in this bowl. 😍 I tried something new with my oatmeal this morning. I added ¼ teaspoon of ground ginger as it cooked, in addition to the usual cinnamon and half banana, and WOW it was so good!
I love all things ginger because it’s warm and a little spicy. Have you ever tried fresh-squeezed ginger juice? It will clear your sinuses for sure. 😅
Now I just need to get some nutmeg, allspice, and cloves so I can make some pumpkin pie spice oatmeal. 😜
Do you like these autumn/winter spices? What’s your favourite way to use them?
Well, I tried my hand at writing a small story for this anon! I’m not quite sure of the quality, but I hope you like it! If you know of any stories involving aliens and makeup, please reblog this and link them!
There were only two human crewmembers of the Explorer, and both of them were women. The rest of the crew, save for Vi, had never met a human before applying to join the Captain on her maiden voyage to the furthest reaches of space (Or rather, that one really good restaurant a few planets over, as their first stop turned out to be). As such, human traditions were quite the mystery, and one many of the crew wished to unravel.
Captain Amelie, a tall, adventurous human with very little understanding of the phrase ‘patience’, was the resident curiosity, for lack of a better phrase. Rita, the resident engineer, was persistent in her day-to-day routine, down to the minute, and her appearance was just one of the things that could be relied on to stay the same every day. Captain Amelie, however, seemed one big, rainbow-coloured ball of spontaneity.
For those who say that "Humanz" sound nothing like Gorillaz
So, I decided to check Amazon.co.uk to order the newest Gorillaz album “Humanz”, as I wasn’t able to preorder it. What immediately caught my eye was that the album, that came out just today, has only 3 stars. Wondering what was so bad already about the new album, I checked the reviews. What I saw made me angry beyond everything. Yes, there are 5 star reviews, loving the new songs. But there were also 1 star reviews and they all said basically the same thing - “This album sounds nothing like Gorillaz used to sound. Bring the old Gorillaz back!”
So, let me get this straight - you dislike this album because it sounds nothing like Gorillaz? Can you please describe to me how Gorillaz actually sound like? Because what I have heard of, the definition of Gorillaz is that they have no defined genre of music. Ironic, isn’t it? Please, name me three iconic Gorillaz songs. For me, it would be Feel Good Inc., Clint Eastwood and Melancholy Hill. And whoopty doo, they all sound like they were written by three different artists! One is soothing, other has a sick beat. The band, that is known for their freedom in genres are writing songs in an unusual to them, more modern sounding genre? WHAT?!?!?! THAT IS PREPOSTEROUS!!!!
Now listen, I’m gonna drop some truth on you - if you consider yourself a fan of ANYONE, and you do not support the changes that the artist chose, stop calling yourself a fan. It’s like taking an iPhone 7 and hating it because “Oh, it doesn’t feel like the good old iPhone 3, I mean, it changed so much, all these additional apps and functions, bring the good old iPhone back !!!!1!!” Change is good, ESPECIALLY AFTER 6 YEARS OF THE BAND’S HIATUS!!!! I would be surprised if the music sounded like “Demon Days” or even their first album “Gorillaz”.That would show, that they have run out of ideas and that they are AFRAID TO CHANGE. Damon Albarn and Jamie Hewlett even did something that many creators, especially in animation rarely do - they age their characters, Noodle grew up from a tiny girl into a grown up woman, and Murdoc went from a nice brown coloured skin to pickle green. And the change in music style makes so much sense, giving the fact that the band was silent for 6 years. It shows, that the band is not stuck to the things that got tons of attention (like Feel Good Inc. or Melancholy Hill), and tries to replicate it, but rather tries out new stuff to make things interesting. For the love of Pazuzu, “White Light” from “Demon Days"album has like, what, 3 words in it? 4, if you count in “do do dodododo” that goes between the actual words. “El Mañana”, other great song, that sounds nothing like the upbeat “19-2000” from a previous album. Oh, “Hallelujah Money” has a weird tempo that sounds strange? What about “5/4”? See, they DO sound like the old Gorillaz!!!
I love the new songs. “Saturn Barz”, “We Got The Power”, “Apprentice” are so far my favourites (I’ve blasted “Apprentice” on repeat for around 6 good hours, when it came out), and I am positive that I will love the rest of the album too. And the name, “Humanz” actually makes sense, seeing how many artists have joined the Gorillaz and put their effort in this album. Some speculate, that the name, “Humanz” means that they are evolving from the “Gorillaz”, gorillas are turning into humans. Changing. Unlike the hipster “fans”, who sit on the band’s first album or “fans” who know the couple of the most famous songs and can’t remember the names of the members. But we, actual fans, who actually love anything Gorillaz related and who know these characters to the detail, these characters, who, although animated and brought to life by imagination, are more “human” than the famous artists you see everyday on the screen, singing songs that 20 writters have put together for them. None two songs of Gorillaz are alike. Not at all. That is why we love these colorful cartoons and the men behind them so much. And if you got the nerve to say that the new album sounds “nothing like Gorillaz”, then you don’t know, what Gorillaz sound like. You don’t know what Gorillaz are and what they stand for - creativity and love for music of any genre.
