Hi there! I am a Norwegian writer living in London. I like to write about love, Disney and finding happiness.
It's time for another history appreciation post! The month of October is now over, so here are a few moments from Octobers of the past.
It is all of our duty to do our best to defeat racism. Regardless of your ethnicity or the colour of your skin, the world needs you to be an active anti-racist in order to finally get the situation under control. No one should be treated differently because of where they are from or what they look like. Here are some things you can do to help.
September has ended, and it's time to reflect on the rich history it holds through the years. Here is a quick collection of events that impacted different areas of the world.
It annoys me a lot that members of the LGBT+ community often are assumed straight or cis until they tell people otherwise. That they're expected to come out to inform people of their identity. It's almost like a ritual of validating themselves as regular human beings.
Our history is everything. It contains all the difficult part of our existence, our achievements, our highlights. It's our story. Here are 39 quick moments from history, that had different impacts on the future.
I’m always shocked when I see people cycling without helmets on in such a busy city as London. I don’t understand why they don’t want to protect their head in case something happens, which can't be ruled out with this many people sharing the road. I used to not wear one as well. I was among the group of people who counted on accidents not happening. Please, don’t be as dumb as I was.
You don't need a partner to be happy. One of my pet peeves is hearing people say things such as "Single people know deep down they're not happy because they're not in a relationship". This is wrong on so many levels, and an unhealthy attitude for one. Being single doesn't mean sad Valentine's Days and lonely nights. It's not like being in a relationship is always the end goal, and time spent as single is just time inbetween happiness or time spent waiting for your next partner to enter your life. Your time is too precious to be spent waiting for someone to come and make you happy.
My one go-to thing for making myself feel better when I'm down, is Disney movies. If I'm feeling emotional I try to avoid movies with really sad parts or where something very traumatic happens. Here's a list of eight movies I've deemed as "safe" to watch on a bad day (slight spoiler alert).
