Summer work

I’m absolutely flattered by the nice response I received after the TV interview yesterday. I even got several “good job” and “good luck” messages from people I haven’t seen in years!

Now I’m in the middle of editing the second and third part, and then I’ll head to work in two hours.

As I’ve mentioned before, I work at Meny Karmsundgata this summer – the very same store I worked at for two years saving up money for college. I’m not gonna lie and say that I loved every minute of those two years.

I think it had something to do with the fact that last time I was at a very uncertain stage in my life. My dreams of going to college right after high school had been crushed by a bad leg injury. I had also been told by the doctors that I’d have to give up the love of my life – track. The world as I knew it had just fallen apart. And because I didn’t have anything else to go to, I HAD to work there at the store. I think deep down I was just very frustrated, and “blamed” it on the job, when in reality it had nothing to do with the job itself.

Luckily, things worked out and I got accepted to Augustana college in SD, where I even got to do track! Wow, who would’ve thought that’d be possible?

Therefore, this year I CHOSE to go back and work at Meny, to make the rest of my education abroad a little more affordable. There’s a big difference between being forced to do something, and wanting to do something. And you know what? I really like it this time around !

Now that my sister also works there, my productivity went from good to great – because we’re both so incredibly competitive towards each other. We compete in who can “face” the shelfs or complete the tasks on the list in the shortest amount of time etc. Pretty nice!

Watch my windy TV Interview here

Hey y’all!

I just got back from an interview for the local TV-station, but this time I was actually not behind the camera asking the questions, instead I found myself right in front of it …

Please excuse my hair, the wind made it crawl into my face, wups!

I definitely prefer being behind the camera, but I think it’s highly necessary for a journalist/director to see it from the other side sometimes. Maybe it’ll help me be a little more compassionate towards my future interview objects? However, I’m convinced even Oprah felt slightly awkward watching herself on TV for the first time… at least I hope she did haha!

I’ll post the full documentary with English subtitles as soon as I’m done editing it – hopefully within two weeks.

Bless u,
Maria
