New Beginnings

29 April, 2014

The last couple of weeks have almost been like early summer. It is surreal for being Norway. I'm back in the Valley where Mom already made this year's first bouquet.

This week seems to be of the kind where a bunch of things may be resolved at once. Hopefully my job situation will be worked out by the end of this week. This both excites me and scares me a little, but mostly in a good way. But for now I've decided to lower my shoulders, finalize projects and prepare as much as I can for a fresh start to come.

Spring is just a perfect season for new beginnings!

1) Window shopping in Greenpoint two days before I left.
2) Early blooms from my Mom's garden in the Valley.
3) The April evening-sun in my room.

I'm back in Norway again. And is completely surreal on one hand, and completely exhilarating on the other. Me and Sigurd were walking through Oslo two nights ago and it felt like we were the only people in the streets, making me yet again realize there is no place quite like New York. It's good to get a mental rest from it, although I know now that I will always miss it a little too.

The good things about being home are many. Especially the fact that I (hopefully) soon will settle in Oslo. The thought of living in one place for a longer period of time gives me a good feeling for a change. It's long overdue and I have to pinch myself sometimes to realize that it's happening. I'm trying not to get ahead of myself, thinking that first comes the job and then the apartment. But I have to admit I'm already dreaming of my own little place.

Are you ready for more Oslo adventures?
