New website and design

Website Updates

I have now created and published an all new website for the domain. I thought this blog was a bit to personal to be the first thing potential employers found on my site, so I've made one with a lot more professional information about myself. This blog will still be updated at, and the entries from my year abroad will still be found at

I will also finish a new design for my blog shortly, so expect it to be published just after easter! I'm going home tomorrow to spend a week at our cabin with my family, where we'll go cross-country-skiing and just relax. No internet, no computers, no cable-tv or fancy stereosystems. Just us and mother nature, and the basic necessities to avoid beeing uncomfortable.
But tonight it is Alexanders birthday, so there'll be lots of fun and party! Hopefully I'll be able get up tomorrow morning so I don't miss my flight. :-)

Snowboarding @ Geilo

The Travel Channel

With my life beeing less than eventful lately I found it a great relief that my planned trip to Geilo was due this week. My mother attends an annual conference at Dr.Holms hotel at Geilo, and usually invites me and my sister to come along and stay with her so we can hit the slopes while she is attending lectures. I travelled on the night-train from Trondheim Monday night, which gave me most of Tuesday plus all of Wednesday and Thursday at Geilo before returning and arriving back in Trondheim at 7a.m Friday morning. Plenty of time for some great days out in the slopes with my Snowboard. The feeling of sliding down a mountainside on the steel edges of a board with the cold crisp air rushing by is just exhilarating! You've just got to try it for yourself!

Studying and more

Party all Night

After Carina left I've spent most of my time working on the intranet for Start NTNU as well as doing mandatory lab-exercises and course-readings as required to pass the classes I am enrolled in. Mostly they contenst are somewhat interesting but it's also really mundane stuff that'll bore your brains out.

I've also been making a new personal homepage for myself that hopefully will be ready for publication within the week, and so in essence my life is a dull as an old butterknife, at least most of the time. There has been a couple of good parties during in the weekends to liven things up a bit, and thank god for that. A week ago Benjamin threw an awesome party at his place for mostly Start NTNU people, with dancing and drinking until the break of dawn, and then this weekend there was a small get-together at Alexanders place in honour of Gry-Hege who was on a weekend trip to Trondheim visiting him. Plenty of fun, and quite neccesary if I were to remain sane.
Well at least I get a lot of work done these days...
