Today it’s Sunday and it’s the day when i write my blogposts in English. I will write about the midnightsun which we have up here from May to September. First a review over my blogposts since last Sunday.
Monday’s blogpost was about my dogs that i grew up with, two poodles. They meant a lot to me and gave me lots of joy. It made me also very sad when they died. They where buried in the place that they love the most, in our summerhouse.
Tuesday’s blogpost was about our most common phrase – How are you? When we ask someone that, do we really want to know or is it just a phrase we ask to be polite?
Wednesday’s blogpost was about my diaries and what they meant for me. I started writing diaries when i was ten and it was a way for me to express my thoughts and feelings during my whole childhood.
On Thursday i wrote about acting and how it was like to start in a drama course in the evenings. I was terrified to stand upon people and speak, both in school and after ground school. I confronted my greatest fear and i loved it.
Friday’s blogpost was about men and woman and why it’s ”allowed” to hug among woman when men only shake hands. The need for bodycontact are the same no matter if you are a man or a woman.
And yesterday’s blogpost was about how to find the perfect job and why it’s never too late. It’s difficult to know when you are 16 what you want to do the rest of your life.
The midnightsun occurs every year up here in the north of Norway. The sun never sets and it’s bright light 24/7 from May to September. When i first moved here i found it very difficult to sleep at night. It was sunshine at 2 a.m and 3 a.m and the whole night. After some time i realised that i had to cover the windows to be able to sleep. The only time i felt it was wonderful in the beginning, was when i worked my nightshifts. Then i could sit outdoors in the sun for a couple of hours and it was great.
Now, five years later, the midnightsun doesn’t bother me at night in the summertime. I love it. Maybe it has something to do with the fact that the other months the sun sets very early, and in the wintertime – from November to the end of January – the sun never rise at all. It’s night 24/7 here. So in this time a year, in Mars, i have a wonderful time ahead of me. It’s gonna be great because this winter has been very long and cold.
