I want to go to there: Quiet villages in Norway

We were talking in my art history class today about suburbia and our teacher had us write down what we want our lives to be like in ten years. I felt like it was one of those things like when you are graduating from high school and maybe one of your old teachers kept something you wrote when you were young like "When I'm grown up I want to be an ice cream flavour inventor and live on the moon". My answer was I want to be traveling around the world and working as a freelance illustrator. I figured out this morning that if I could earn a living drawing buildings, flowers, food, and exciting faraway places for the rest of my life I would be happy.

Today I want to be in a quiet village in Norway under a big, clear sky.

  2. I live in Norway, and has always wanted to move somewhere else in the world, just if it was far away from Norway, but you got me realize how great it is here. Now I think, I'll rather stay here, in my small little village. <3
