For years, my country has been violated in truly unfair ways. But now, with our old president (who started it all) dead, and a new, worse one in rule, students in Venezuela are rising and creating a revolution for peace against the corrupt government.
The government has shut down any social networks, so there’s no contact whatsoever. This video explains it even better.
WE NEED YOUR HELP. SPREAD THE WORD. SHARE THIS POST. FOR PEACE. FOR FREEDOM. FOR HUMAN RIGHTS.
ENOUGH BLOOD HAS BEEN SPILLED.
ENOUGH TEARS HAVE BEEN SHED.
Let my country be heard. It’s time this ends.
Uhm, hi, erm yes hello! Do you remember me? I wouldn’t either. I’ve been wating for a moment of inspiration to strike, to help me write this post; where to start and what to say. Then I realized that was just me procrastinating and decided that I will have no more of it! So…Hi, my name is Ingvild! Through high shcool I kept posting “this and that” on this blog platform called “Tumblr”. After graduating I startet a new chapter of my life. I packed my bags, travelled some serious miles and became a drama/dance/song/fun/life student at a folk high school called “Solbakken”, and my posts went from rare to nonexistent. And that’s the very short summary…
Ok, so I kind of suck at this! I freely admit it; my tumblring is shamefully rare. On a happier note: you think I’m worth it anyway! :D … ? If I were to update you on all that has happened since my last post we would both be here a while, so I think I’ll just stick with the short version of the story: Our first production was a contemporary dance, and abstract theatre production. It was hard work, very different from well…everything, but also interesting and an experience I wouldn’t wish to be without. The weeks have flown by and I’ve had a lot of fun! The people here at my school just never cease to amaze me! They’re a gang of funny, lovely and open-hearted people.
So as you might gather there is enough happening in my life to keep up a tumblr queue. Reasons for that not being the case is partly that my computer is still a mess, and partly me spending way less time on the computer. On top of that my tumblr is going through an identity crisis. I learn so much these days and laugh so much that I don’t really know how to even begin to tell you all.
What I can do however is to give you a quick update from what has been going on recently, I feel like I owe you that! These days we are working on storytelling with something called band mimé (google it, it’s fun!). Up until now we’ve just been making up stories to practice, but tomorrow we’ll start with bigger stories that we will go on tour with to all the pre-schools around here. I’m excited!
Since I promised that I wouldn’t make my posts too long and boring I’ll stop there while (I hope) you’re still with me and come back later when I’ve got my business together!
stay tuned! (and have a good one!)
oh, and here is a picture of a cute kitten for you!
Catchy title I know, I spent a minute on it. This is a post I’ve been meaning to write for some time now (heh) but in truth; it’s been a busy couple of days. Saturday August 25th I packed whatever my two suitcases and the additional backpack would hold, got on a plane and moved 1356 km from home. That whole day was simply nerve-wracking. I remember shaking like crazy as I got off at the bus-stop near my new school. Then things got crazy as a gang second graders at the school came rushing towards me, smiling, shaking my hand and stealing my luggage, leaving me no choice but to follow. I got a name tag and everything!
which was a good thing, as I kept forgetting it whenever I met new people throughout the day.
Since I haven’t written about this before I reckon you have no idea what I’m talking about. Here goes: this new shcool I just moved to is a “folk high shool” (folkehøgskole). There are about 77 of them I think, and it’s quite common that people who have finished high shcool attends a fhs for a year to figure out what they want in their lives. Many kids just want to do something different before they go on and become hard-core students. Each fhs is different and offers different courses (you could always google it, if you’re interested in knowing more than my vague description :) ) and also focuses on personal growth. You live on campus with a roomie.
The fhs I’ve started specializes in music, theatre and dance (and offers a second year for about 13 students). The minute I chose “regular school” over the music/theatre program in high school I decided I’d go. Singing, dancing and acting is something that has always interested me, and something I’ve always dreamed of doing, but never had the time nor the courage to actually do. And now (after some heavy debating with myself) here I am with 35 other incredibly nice students. It is scary of course, and all that dreaming suddenly got very real but at the same time it feels unbelievably right to be here. We’ve barely been here a week and already we’ve played crazy “get-to-know-each-other-games”, sung a lot (both solo and in choir), had some absurd dance/theatre lessons, explored Oslo, been in Sweden, watched two plays and attended an improv-workshop. The days so far have all been filled with laughter and simply flown by.
Tomorrow we start our first production for real. I imagine I will be scared once things “get real”, but after this week here I’m positive I can handle it. I am truly excited about what this year will bring. This post got quite long but I felt like sharing! My computer is still a mess though, and my schedule is crazy, so I’m afraid I can’t promise frequent posting, but I will do my best and scroll through my dash whenever I get the chance. Also I will try to feel like sharing more often (without killing you softly with long text posts)
Hope you have a good one!
Okay so; I realize I am probably not the most eager poster you’re following (thanks for the follow btw, you’re azm!), but I like to think of myself as a rare, but pleasant contribution to your dashboard. That being said my lack of posting lately has not been for a lack of will to post, but rather due to the fact that my computer is sick, suffering from massive blackouts causing all of my open tabs to freeze. Seeing as tumblr always houses an open tab it has of course been affected. I am hoping to get my computer healed asap but until then I hope you can bear with me! As my life is about to get more adventurous in about a week I figure I’ll be back stronger than ever!
you can hold me to that
other than that: have yourself a super day!
lots of love and tumblr giddiness
