When people hear that all the clocks have stopped, they will automatically associate it with the time stopping. Of course that is not true, but I think it would be very confusing!
Not only will we not be able to follow the rutines we’re used to, and since routines is a big part of our nature, things could, and will, go wrong.
For example if you’re supposed to wait for 10 minutes before you go to work, and you notice that your clock does not move,you might be late. But of course your boss will not notice since his clock has stopped to!
You’ll have no overview at all, and we would have to conciter beginning to use new tools and methods that will give us information on what time it is. If this was to happen, we would have to look back in time and see what people used for clocks when these convenient things we call clocks were not used.

I think the whole world would be caotic, messy and unorganized.
If you’re on a bus or a train, the time will not be shown on the wall-board and people will not know if they’re late.
I also think I would have a hard time getting up in the morning, because I would probably get up waaay to soon becase I would be so worried about being late for school, or I would be late because I overslept.
Except from the whole society breaking down, it could be pretty cool if all the clocks stopped to!:D
“I don’t know what time it is” or “my clock was showing the wrong time” are some of the most common, and stupid, excauses you can make up, but now you can actually use them and they would not sound stupid! hehe:)
And I wouldn’t have to get up so early in the morning either, becasue I do not know what time it is. Personally, I think sleeping is the best thing you can possibly do!
I can sleep for over 12 houres if I want to.
If all the clocks stopped, I could  sleep as long as I want to, and I do not have to show up at certain places when I’m supposed to. I could just ditch everything and not feel guilty about it. That would be just great! But I also think this way of living could be very boring after a while, thing would constantly crash, and it would not take long until we do not know what year or month we’re in.
If this happened, I would try to fix the clocks. And when I succeed, (’cause I know I will!), I will be a big hero and everybody will look up to me. That would be pretty OK. Haha…

Of course, this all depends on how long these stupid clocks decide to remain broken! 😀

Even Homer would be confused ! 😛

The Plane Crash

I could feel the Brazilian sun burnig on my face and the white, pure sand on my hands. This was my only day off from my work-trip to Brazil, and I was looking forward to spend the whole day on this beautiful beach.
That was about to change dramatically. I was quickly interrupted and surprised when I heard people running around the beach screaming and shouting. The sun that was shining on my sunglasses just seconds ago, was now replaced by a huge, dark shadow. I quickly got on my feet and looked up to se what was going on.
The sight that met me, was rather horrifying.

A plane was heading for the beach, getting dangerously low. In about a minute it would hit the surface near the shore, and I believed that there was nothing nobody could do at this moment to prevent it from happening.
I did not care to grab my stuff before I took off and left the beach, I knew that the safest thing to do, even though this was quite exciting, was to go someplace safer. I ran up to an old tree house beside the beach where I could see what was going on. The plane was now about to crash, and I noticed that the second half was almost ripped off! A few seconds later, I heard a big “BOOOOM!” I covered my ears and waited until it was over.
I looked down, and  I could hear policecars and ambulanses outside, and I decided to go back to hotelroom.

The next day I woke up early and went down to the beach to check on the cinditions.
Some early-bird policemen were still investigating the place. I heard on the lokal radio that the plane that crashed yesterday was a passenger-flight with 350 people abord, no survivors.
I was quite shocked and thought I might go down to the wreck and take a look.
For some strange reason, the accident-area had not been secured and everyone could have a look. I went in to the back of the plane, the part that had fell off, and noticed a door which had not been opened during the investiation… I was not sure wheter to open it or not, but my curiosity took over my rationality. I slowly opened the door, and I am never going to believe what I just saw…

I decided to post the lyrics to a song that just hit me right in the heart the first time I heard it.
It’s called Tears in heaven, written and performed by Eric Clapton. He wrote this song to his son, and I think it’s really sad. His son fell out a window from 11th floor in the middle of New York city. When I hear this song, it makes me think about people I have lost, and how things would be if they were still alive.

Would you know my name
If I saw you in heaven?
Would it be the same
If I saw you in heaven?

I must be strong
And carry on,
‘Cause I know I don’t belong
Here in heaven.

Would you hold my hand
If I saw you in heaven?
Would you help me stand
If I saw you in heaven?

I’ll find my way
Through night and day,
‘Cause I know I just can’t stay
Here in heaven.

Time can bring you down,
Time can bend your knees.
Time can break your heart,
Have you begging please, begging please.

Beyond the door,
There’s peace I’m sure,
And I know there’ll be no more
Tears in heaven.

Would you know my name
If I saw you in heaven?
Would it be the same
If I saw you in heaven?

I must be strong
And carry on,
‘Cause I know I don’t belong
Here in heaven.

Greece

I was in Greece in my summer-vacation back in 2002. Me and my family went to a tiny little place called Makrigialos. The hotels and resturants were modern and in a good shape, but the pople who lived there, were really poor.
That was very interesting to see. On the post-card you could only see the great beach and the white hotels, but just behind the hotel, people did not even have a roof over their heads.
One day we went to the oldest city in Greece, I think it was called Kriti or something. The streets were not wider that a couple of meters, and people were using a horse and a wagon to transport the groceries.
Of course there was rich people there as well, and when we took the bus to our hotel, I saw some really huge castles with palms in the driveway. We went in the middle of July, and I have to admit that the temperatures could get way to high sometimes. One day we had 41 degrees celcius, which made me have to drink A LOT of water!
The best thing, however, was the tomatoes! I can not describe how good they were. In fact, I did not like tomatoes before.

Kefalonia

I really hope to go back to Greece sometime, maybe next year. Then I want to go to a place called Kefalonia. It’s a small place with 36000 people, and it’s well-known for its grottos. I hope to visit the famous Blue Grotto, because I love things like that!
Theres a lot of high and mysterious mountains, interesting nature, cosy little restaurants, long beaches and a warm and a pleasant temperature. I have only seen pictures, a few videoes and read about people who have been there, and it looks amazing. I get an impressioon that the people there are
I really hope I will be able to travel to Kefalonia sometime next year:)

My Future Plans

This was a tough one!
I think it’s hard to say what I want to be when I get older, because that can change a thousand times. One thing I’m sure about, is what I’m going to do next year.
After I’ve finished Juniour High, I am going to stay here in Sunndal for the next three years as I move on to High School.
There, I will probably choose the theoretic line, which requires good knowledge in subjects like math, languages (English, Norwegian, maybe French), science  and of course some other regular subjects. 
After that I am not sure what to do, but since I then will have a good foundation, it shouls be easier to continue and do whatever I want to.
Unlike most other girls, I am concitering joinig the navy. I’ve read some articles about it, and it seems like something I might be interested in. There’s lots of different occupations to choose from, you can even be a chef through this line if you want to!
I am willing to make an effort in school, because I think it gives you lots of benefits later when you’re starting a carreer. One of the things that makes us human beings happy and satisfied, is economical stability, and that’s why it’s important to get a good job!
