I’m not in love with you

He looked at me, I wasn’t sure if I wanted to look back at him. He breathed heavily, lifted my head up and said “Lindsay, you are my everything.” I looked up at him and smiled, but inside I felt nothing. Nothing. Why can’t I feel the same, why can’t I love him? I swallowed the lump in my throat, smiled and said “I love you.” I regret the words as soon as they left my mouth. Asher smiles,  steps away from me and gets down on one knee. I feel my heart beat faster than normal, not for the reasons it should. “Lindsay, I love you so much. When I think about my future, you are always on my mind. Will you do me the honor of being my wife?” I stared at him, I had no idea what to say. I felt a tear roll down my cheek as I said the word I’m going to regret for the rest of my life. His smile brightened up the room, but mine was gone.

“Asher Abrams, do you take this woman to be your wife?” He smiled at me and said I do. The priest turned to me, and I smiled to myself. “Lindsay Ronar, do you take this man to be your husband?” Asher smiled at me, suddenly I had no words. I looked at the guests and back at Asher, not a word left my mouth. “I can’t” was the only words I managed to say. “Asher, I can’t.” Asher looked at me with tears in his eyes, I couldn’t blame him. I broke his heart in front of family and friends. I took a step towards Asher. “You mean so much to me, but I’m not in love with you.” He just stood there and stared at me. Waiting for me to hurt him more. “Please Asher, say something!” He shed a tear before he turned his back and left. I felt my heart drop. Did I just let the love of my life go?

Ammar!

Dear Ammar.

It’s been a while since we have been in touch, but I now write to you out of anger. My children just won’t listen to me and my Ella is only supporting them. I try to make them happy, I only want to help them. I am really concerned about my children, they will not continue to carry on the Pakistan tradition. I have tried my entire life, for them to think like me. But they bloody won’t.  What do I do, man? I am loosing my temper often and I am loosing my children. They need to learn that I am the man in the house, and I decide who they bloody marry.

Ammar, I would like you to write back to me. From George.

Thoughts on Macbeth.

We watched the movie “Macbeth” written by Shakespeare. I thought it was a quite interesting story, with a lot of things that happened all the time. So it was sort of hard to keep up with the movie. But the movie itself was well planned and made. I thought it was quite boring sometimes, mostly because it was hard to understand the words. I understood a lot of the words, but they spoke weird and at times not understandable.

The activities before class helped a little. Sometimes when they said thy or thou for example I remembered what it was. But it was still quite hard to understand, and they spoke pretty fast as well. In general I did not enjoy this movie. It was too much violence and I was not very entertained. It was also quite hard to understand what they said, which made it hard to enjoy the movie. But even though I am not very fond of this movie, there are still several thingsI liked about this movie. I liked when macbeth killed Duncan, it was a really intense and exciting scene. I also liked when the little kid had to watch his father getting killed. Mostly because that scene was really touching.

Dear Trump

Dear Trump,

You have now won the election, and I congratulate you. As we all know, being a president is a huge responsibility, and it requires a lot of strength and courage. I am not saying that you do not have it, but America needs someone who does not just promise a wall between America and Mexico, or to keep all Muslims out of America. We need someone who respects other people, who respects that not all Muslims are terrorists, who does not look down on women, and realizes that everyone is worth just as much as you.

One advise from me to you, is that you have to think before you speak. You promise things you cannot keep. I would like you to not lower the taxes, do you understand how expensive it will be if we get sick. Everyone is not as rich as you. We are all different, and it seems like it is hard for you to understand. Homosexual, disabled, black, what does it matter? I believe you when you say you will make America great again, but this is not the way of doing it. You should learn to listen to other people’s opinions. You are now the president, and running America. You honestly have to be proven wrong once in a while.

I do not even live in America, and I am not going to lie, I do not like the way you speak to others. I do not like the way you are going to make America great again. You are doing it wrong. I live in Norway, and I am afraid that we will notice big changes. So dear Mr. Trump, I hope you find a better way to run America, and I hope you find it fast. Take a look around and realize that there are bigger issues than the ones you put the highest. Just a thought.

choosing a book

It can be hard to choose a book. You might not know what you want to read, or don’t like to read at all. But there are some ways. I sometimes listen to what books my friends like, but a lot of times I can’t. I don’t like all the same books as them. Usually I look at the cover, because that’s what you see first. If I get interested in the cover, I might start considering the book. But I also have to read the blurb to find out if I really want to read the book. The cover creates interest, but you most certainly can’t judge a book by its cover.

Humans of Oslo

Today I was in Oslo and talked to some people on the street on English. A lot of people did not understand what we said, so it was hard to find people. But I interviewed a woman, who was really sweet. She was really unsure at first, that she would not have so interesting answers. She also thought that the questions were extremely hard, and yes they were.

“I have three kids, who I love very much. I love doing a lot with them, but what I love most is being out in the beautiful nature. My greatest and funniest accomplishment has to be making exhibitions. I have made Mette Marit’s windows, I am very proud of that.” In my life I have no fear, and I have no regrets. I am very happy with what I’ve done, and am very fond of myself.” “The saddest thing I have ever experienced has to be when I lived in the neighboring country to several thousand indians, who rigged their own graves because they knew they were going to die. That is by far the saddest moment of my life, and I dont’t think anything will top that.”

My experience with this is good, but weird. It was hard to get in touch with people, they were either in a rush, or they did not understand us. A lot of people did  not even understand English. But the ones we talked to, had touching stories and they were really nice. So this was a good experience.

 

A nice place

It is one of my favorite places in the entire world, it is very beautiful and is not very big. It is known for being a very popular vacation place. It is known for the good weather, and the beautiful beaches. The hot nights and the even hotter days. A lot of things is great about this place. The view, the weather, the salad´s, their hotels. I would definitely go there today if I could, and I am pretty sure you would to.beautiful-ocean-beautiful-pictures-27115524-1440-900
