Warning: Flash Flood

Yesterday the most awesome friends surprised me with the best (and my first) surprise party. So surprising in fact that I didn’t bring my camera. So I have no pictures of last night as of right now, hopefully later. These on the other hand are from this morning’s hike to Manoa Falls. Joined Kara to get the last photos for my photojournalism assignment – due on Tuesday – and to cure my headache.  The nature up in Manoa Valley is just magnificent, and a short hike like that is probably something I should do every morning. Good for body, mind and soul or something like that. Finished with something that actually was good for body, mind and soul; snow ice. Weird consistency but oh-so nice.

NOW, homework + last episode of Angel season 1.

    Hei Maren!
    Jeg vurderer å studere engelsk ved uio, og lurte på om de fremdeles har bachlor-studiet ved uio siden jeg ikke finner det på nett-siden? Begynte du på årsstudium eller bachlor? :)

    Melissa: jeg gikk på bachelor i engelsk litteratur, men vet at de har skiftet navn til “bachelor i europeiske og amerikanske studier” nå. Så det er det man søker på og så spesialiserer man seg. Info her: http://www.uio.no/studier/program/euram/index.xml . Link til studieretning engelsk ligger på den siden. Du velger jo fag selv, så hvis du følger den planen som er satt opp for engelsk språk eller engelsk lit. så får du den graden du er ute etter.

    Hei! Elsker bildene dine!! Hvordan redigerer du de? Bruker du et spesielt filter? :-)


  9. MAREN BJØRGUM - April 12, 2012, 9:41 PM

    Vilde: bruker photoshop CS5, i dette tilfelle med røde og gule fargefilter + dypere røde skygger. Jeg pleier å eksperimentere med farger og contraster og filtertyper til jeg finner noe jeg liker, og så lager jeg en Action ut av det så jeg slipper å måtte huske det hver eneste gang jeg skal redigere et bilde.

books

In 2004 I started to write down what books I read in order to keep track of them all. Since 2006 I have gathered them here instead of in my notebook and they serve as a reminder of how I should read more and compete to beat my old “record”. You can find the complete list here.
