YES, I delivered my thesis and it feels GREAT !!
I can’t say that I was 100 % satisfied with it, but I’ve never been that with anything I’ve written so… Let’s just hope that I will pass, haha! I have to say that I’ve put a lot of work in it though… I guess I’m also a little bit proud… It’s my bachelor thesis, after all! I have to admit that it feels strange to write in my blog… Especially checking Twitter and Facebook without feeling guilty. I still close the windows after a really quick check, because I still think that I should write on my thesis instead of doing these stuff. Now when I’m done with my thesis, I don’t feel I have anything to do online, LOL!! Anyways, I will continue to write about my ~*life*~. The last entry I wrote is already five weeks old……
This day I’m gonna write about was a special day for us in CoutureGals; it wasn’t only the obligatory «Year Meeting» (which is the day we discuss and evaluate how things have been and what to do further more) but also a day where we wanted to celebrate CoutureGals’ four years of existence.
Let me start from the beginning…
We woke up early and bought breakfast. Since we knew we were going to get really busy later, we decided to have our meeting while we ate our breakfast. You know how it is… Four chatty girls? It’s better to take the more serious talk when we’re gathered around the table and not when we are around doing our makeup. I usually don’t write so much about what we’re talking about in our internal meetings, they are internal after all. But I guess I can tell you that I’m really proud of every member. We encourage each other to speak our mind and to not be afraid of telling if there is anything that we don’t like. We discussed how we feel things went since last year’s meeting. When thinking back, I’m very happy about last year. We did a lot of stuff together and we got the chance to see each other very often, and one of our open meetings was a huge success. We did a lot of crazy stuff, and everyone did their best to come to the meetings. That’s the funny thing about us four. We usually suck at keeping in touch online, if I wasn’t sure about our friendship I would probably have thought that we didn’t like each other. But with these girls, things are completely different. Internet doesn’t exist for us, it seems. Luckily, every time we see each other it feels like we’ve never been apart.
We also saved a lot money in our account the past year, and we agreed on keeping the monthly fees. We need to be better at paying in time, though. The girls also had their chance to tell me about how they think my work as a leader have been. Surprisingly, I didn’t hear any negative things and they also wanted me as leader for next year too. I was afraid they were thinking that I’ve been too strict or maybe that they were thinking that I’ve been lazy when it comes to the task I have, but apparently that wasn’t anything to be afraid of. I will work even harder and not disappoint my girls, I won’t let them down. We aren’t only a group of ordinary friends, but also a team that works together. In that way, organized interest based meetings aren’t only for the sake of the interests we share, but also for the friendship we have together. I’m extremely lucky. I couldn’t wish for more.
When we finished the breakfast and the talk, we started to do our hair and makeup. We were all thinking that it was a little bit early, but then we always surprise ourselves when it comes to the time we can use on that stuff. We just wanted to be on the safe side!
I spent a lot of time on my hair… And also a lot of time on Marita’s hair! And like always, when we’re together, I somehow planned the time really wrong which made me have only a few minutes for the makeup! If I don’t remember wrong, I had 15 minutes for it… So I ended up spending a lot of time on my hair and almost no time on my makeup, which rather looked ridiculous! Oh well, the most important part was that I had fun, and I sure did. I won’t complain.
The cab was coming any minute, so we waited outside. The funny thing is, that we waited for the cab for 20 minutes. I started to get a little irritated, because on the 20 minutes I could do a much better makeup… And not to think about how much it sucks to stand outside with crazy hairdo when it’s snowing as fuck. Luckily I had fabulous girls around me that kept the bad mood away…
We had booked table on the known fine gourmet restaurant Restaurant Eik Annen Etage. I’ve been in many fancy gourmet restaurants before in my life, but somehow not in any in Oslo! I guess it’s easier to spend money eating out when you’re traveling somewhere… Which is kind of sad, I would love to try out the restaurants in Oslo more… I know there are a lot of local food ingredients I should try.
On this restaurant, they always have five different dishes on their menu. Their menu changes all the time depending on the season and according to themselves they always use the best ingredient available. You can choose between 3, 4 ot 5 courses – and you are free to pick what you want from their menu. We all ordered three courses. While we’re waiting for the food, let me introduce you CoutureGals once more!
All in all, I can’t believe I haven’t eaten here before. I’ve been travelling around the world since I was a kid and have tasted so much… But somehow I haven’t been here in this restaurant before? I will come back again, no doubt. Great service, delicious food, extremely nice place and very nice prices thinking that this is an gourmet restaurant! I highly recommend this place.
