Books on the go

After I moved to Stockholm, I have had to travel for quite a long distance to get to work. In Trondheim it only took me about 15-20 minutes to get to work. Here it takes me 55 minutes, and I have to change from bus to underground along the way.

With all this time, and not much to do then to sit and wait to get from A to B, I had to find something that helped time go by faster, so I decided it was time to start reading books again.
I remember when I was working at Ringnes E.C. Dahls Bryggeri A/S, I used to listen to audio books a lot, and I really miss that, so after searching around a bit I found an application for my iPhone that suited my needs called Stanza. Seeing as I have my hands free at the bus and train, I figured I could save storage space and time by reading eBooks instead of audio books, and for this Stanza is perfect.

So far I h ave managed to get through some books already, so here’s a short review of what I think about them:

Weekend and work-rant

So last weekend Alina and Me went to Levanger to go camping outside and visit Alinas parents. We managed to sleep over from Friday to Saturday (after being bitten half to death by insects), and spent the rest of the weekends at Alinas parents, eating and celebrating Alinas birthday.

During our stay outdoors, I managed to capture this beautiful picture. It’s the field outside HINT, close to the water.

And I’ve started to realize how much I enjoy working at Crystone A/S. I mean sure, having the support phone a whole week, having to be available 24hours a day, 7 days a week sucks, but it doesn’t really matter. I get payed well, I have some great colleagues, and an awesome boss! Today we had strawberries with sugar and cream, and when we move to our new offices, we’ll be having Wii and flat-screen :D

Also, the work environment is really relaxed. I mean, we do work quite efficiently, but still take time to kid around . This being an all-male workplace turns it into a kind of mini-LAN every day, which is pretty cool. Also, the guys are really hardcore geeks, so I finally have someone to talk really geeky stuff with and actually get an interested reply.The rest of the week will probably be spent getting our new shelves up for our dvds and relaxing. Alina will be working most of the weekend, but hopefully we’ll be able to get some people for a little party on Saturday.

London 17-25.March 2008

So first of all, it’s been quite a while since I wrote anything here, but instead of making excuses, I’m going to post a fancy cool new slideshow thing for my gallery! Yeah, it’s pictures from me and Alinas trip to London.

If you wish to go trough the pictures more thouroughly, don’t be afraid to go to the picasa gallery here and have a look in order to see pictures in higher resolutions (or even better, create your own as well, and I can link you up as friends and we can all share our photos!). I’ve tried sorting everything correctly, and commenting on everything, but at a current count of over 350 pictures, it takes a while. Still, I’m working on it and hopefully I’ll have everything sorted soon. In the meantime, enjoy the pictures :)

P.S: Yes, the comments are in Norwegian, so sorry for any English readers (yes, I’m talking to you guys), but at least enjoy the pictures, and disable captions if they’re distracting.
