The owner of this blog (or sorry excuse for a blog, whichever you prefer) is a 29 year old Norwegian with a severe case of megalomania/inferiority issues. Interesting combination? We think not. And maybe there’s a touch of multiple personality disorder in there as well, judging by that last sentence. But that’s not a bad thing for a writer, is it?
She describes herself as an eternal student, but technically stopped being a student a year ago, when the grand total of degrees reached three. Why three? Why not (she said, defensively)? If you’re wondering what they are, wonder no more! Psychology, English and comparative literature. She is nuts enough to consider more education, but needs a little time to recover from 21 straight years of schooling. Ask again next year!
To pay the bills, she allows herself to be driven crazy on a daily basis. The official job title is “freelance translator”, but “professional do-this-do-that-monkey” is much more accurate. Mostly, she translates TV shows and movies, and then she spends her free time watching more TV shows and movies. It’s a completely different experience, okay?
She also reads a bit occasionally, preferably in coffee shops with a cup of ridiculously overpriced milk mixture (as her father, probably rightly, calls it) in her near vicinity.
That last bit of time left over in the day, she tries to spend writing semi-coherent things that might at some point be published.
