I woke up around 6.00. I woke up 1 hour before the time I set the alarm to wake me up, and I was feeling really stressed. Going to bed while I’m still stressed is something I really should stop doing, this can’t be healthy in the long. I was stressing with packing my little suitcase the night before – I really suck when it comes to packing suitcases. No matter what I do, I always end up with bringing with me too much stuff.
I took the bus to Oslo, and did some shopping. Bought some new accessories and a few issues of elder egg magazine. Yes, you can buy this GAL magazine in-store in Oslo; Neo Tokyo in Arcaden is selling the newest issue and a few older ones. They also have other fashion/lifestyle magazines such as Koakuma Ageha, Scawaii…, they’re not surprisingly expensive (about 150 NOK each issue) compared to the original price, but imported magazines are always so. Buying them online from a store + shipping would in the end be almost the same; I think I from now on should buy my copies in Neo Tokyo. I should support that they have egg! It didn’t really seem like egg magazine was selling so good (du-uh, aren’t many people here in Oslo interested in GAL at all…), and it would be sad if they stopped importing it!
I realized that my phone’s battery was almost empty and the phone was going to turn off in any second, so I wrote a message to Ingvild in a hurry. I wrote when and where I was arriving, and hit the send button – and right after that the phone went off. I wasn’t sure if I managed to send the message to her at all…
I took the train to Fredrikstad, and while I sat in the train, the only thing I could do was thinking that Ingvild probably didn’t receive any messages from me. I started to imagine different ways to ask people to let me borrow their phone for a phone call. That itself isn’t hard, but I wanted to make sure they understood my situation. Would they let me borrow it if I had to call a telephone directory to find Ingvilds phone number? Calling special numbers are so expensive, and I don’t feel good about asking people to let me do it at all.
When the train stopped in Fredrikstad and I got off, I was about to ask a stranger about borrowing the phone. BUT Ingvild was there waiting for me!
It was nice to see her again, last time I saw her was when she was at my place in October.
We took the bus to the mall because I had to buy a few things.
When we got home to Ingvild’s place we chilled and had our obligatory girl-talk, looked trough the magazines I had bought earlier the rest of the day. We also exchanged Christmas presents!
We opened the presents, though. I usually don’t but this time we wanted to open it while we were together!
