For the first time ever, I’m worried senseless about an election in the US. This election is one of the most important elections in modern history, and stands to shift the political climate not only for the US, but the rest of the world for years – if not decades to come. I’m by […]

I am so fucking angry, I’m way beyond upset, my heart is bleeding, my head is racing, my gut wants to vomit until there’s nothing more left inside, I’m disappointed beyond even my own comprehension. I’m sitting shaking my head in sheer disbelief. My eyes are dry from too many tears. Yet I won’t give […]
So, the people of Great Britain have spoken. They have voted in favour of leaving the European Union. A decision that came as a surprise to many, especially to the Union itself it seems, with messages of huge distress in the headquarters in Brussels. I have to admit that I am not all that surprised, […]
Hello, my name is Jostein and I’m a blue light addict. I crave the blue light that my so called smart phone gives off, I need the blue light, it drives me, it feeds me. From the moment I wake up, all throughout the day my attention is focused around that electric unit in the […]
What is it they say? Once a nerd, always a nerd? I don’t know about you, but for me that definitely rings true. Working in IT, you tend to be surrounded by great people with vast knowledge in both the technical sphere as well as matters of the real world. There’s nothing quite like having […]

This is a rather personal post, but after having seen this picture on Facebook and read the related article over at The Washington Post, my fingers started reacting. What was only meant to be a short comment on Facebook ended up with a small rant, but I guess my fingers wanted to say more on […]
Ah man, what a wonderful day. Not only has the sun been out the last few days, with a crystal clear blue sky, but it’s been rather warm as well. At the most today, we had a whooping 28 degrees Celsius, which is quite respectable for this time of the year. During summer, we usually […]
As most of you know, I went to Thailand about a week ago. Since then, I’ve enjoyed lots of the local beer brews as well as the more common known beer types. I’ve been on the beach, swimming around in water that holds a nice 29 degrees celsius. The temperature during the day is a good and warm 32 degrees celsius. All in all, I’m enjoying myself immensly.
It’s been a busy month, with work and training and adjusting back to the real world. After having been out on extended sick leave all summer with a back injury I sustained in late March. And there’s been lots and lots of football to watch and attend too, with my local team Strømsgodset fighting for survival in the Norwegian equivalent of the Premier League. They only need one more victory to save themselves from being relegated. And then we have Liverpool, with a packed Premier League program as well as playing in group A of the Champions League, there’s plenty of football to keep up with.
