SPRING '17

Foråret 2017: 1. marts - 31. maj



Foråret i tal: Jeg har læst 15 bøger dette forår, jeg har skrevet og afleveret 1 speciale og drukket cirka uendelig mange kopper kaffe. 


Foråret i ord: De sidste tre måneder har både været de længste og de korteste, jeg har oplevet. Den første var præget af, at jeg ingen undervisning havde og selv måtte administrere min tid. Derfor tog jeg til Paris og Bordeaux med venner fra London, hvor vi sukkede over smukke tagtoppe, fik solrøde kinder og spiste snegle, ost og crêpes. 
Jeg prøvede også kræfter med noget nyt og skrev en reportage fra SPOT festival for Netudgaven. Det overraskede mig, præcis hvor meget jeg nød den opgave. 
Efterhånden som ugerne forsvandt fik specialet en større og større plads i min hverdag, og de sidste uger overtog det næsten helt. Dagene forsvandt i den samme trummerum, og pludselig var tiden gået, specialet afleveret og en ny hverdag startet.





Foråret i bøger: Jeg har næsten udelukkende læst bøger, som var relevante for mit speciale. Fagbøger i stakkevis og enkelte romaner ind i mellem, når overskuddet var til det. Jeg læste blandt andet Trainspotting af Irvine Welsh, da en opfølger på den første film udkom. Selvom det tog lidt tid, før sproget og dialekten sad fast, var det en virkelig fed bog! Til sidst i maj læste jeg Mark Frosts Den hemmelige historie om Twin Peaks, som netop er udkommet på dansk. Det er længe siden, jeg har læst en bog, som er så intelligent sat sammen, og hvor man som læser selv må interagere så meget i det puslespil, bogen udgør. 


Foråret i indlæg: 
- Jeg viste den smukkeste bogbutik i Budapest frem. Ren litteraturlykke! 
- Jeg anmeldte Christina Hesselholdts nyeste roman Vivian
- Og jeg anbefalede tre Instagramprofiler med fokus på bøger
- I et lidt anderledes indlæg anmeldte jeg forestillingen Tree of Codes




Sommeren står på: Afslapning først og fremmest. Jeg fylder mine dage med alt det, jeg ikke har haft tid til og har glædet mig til, mens jeg skrev speciale: læsning, sofahygge, øl, oprydning, rengøring og en hel masse søvn. Snart er det tid til Northside festival, og derefter er det planlægning og pakning. For efter sommeren flytter vi. Nu hvor hverken E eller jeg er bundne af studie eller job har vi besluttet os for at tage på eventyr sammen og vi rykker derfor teltpælene op og flytter til Island (ja, Island, min store kærlighed <3). 

Hvordan har jeres forår været? Hvad har I læst, som var bemærkelsesværdigt godt?

Spring in numbers: I read 15 books, wrote 1 master thesis and had so many cups of coffee it's uncountable

Spring in words: The last three months has gone by both incredibly fast and incredibly slow. I spent the first month taking advantage of not having any classes by going to Paris and Bordeaux with a group of friends from London. We spent our days enjoying beautiful rooftop views, getting sun kissed red cheeks and eating snails, cheese and crêpes. After returning to Denmark, I did something I haven't tried before: I wrote an article about SPOT festival (unfortunately it's in Danish) and ended up enjoying it a lot more than I thought I would've! 
As time went by my attention focused more and more on my master thesis, and by the end of May it was all I could think of. The days went by so fast and they all looked pretty much the same, until the first of June, when I could finally submit my thesis and get my life back together. 

Spring in books: most of the books I've read had to do with my thesis. I did, however, have time to read Trainspotting by Irvine Welsh, when the second movie aired in cinemas. And likewise, I got around to reading The Secret Story of Twin Peaks by Mark Frost before the third season of Twin Peaks aired. Both amazing (and, of course, very different) books. 

Spring in posts:
- I showed you one of the most beautiful book stores in Budapest. Pure bliss!  
- I recommended three different Instagram profiles who every book-lover would enjoy. 
I reviewed the incredible performance in Tree of Codes, where three amazing artists come together in perfection.

Summer will be about: relaxing! I'm spending my days doing all the things I've missed: reading, sleeping, drinking beer, seeing friends and cleaning. Next weekend I'm going to Northside Festival and I can't wait for sun (hopefully), beer and music! After Northside I'll have to start packing and planning. Since E and I are not tied to anything in Denmark anymore, we decided to go on an adventure and move to Iceland! <3 Big things are ahead and we can't wait. 

How was your spring? Did you read anything amazing I should know of?

  1. For dælen, hvor du oplever ting. Tillykke med specialet, og hvor er det vildt med Island!

    Den mest bemærkelsesværdigt gode bog jeg har læst, har helt sikkert været SCUM Manifest af Valerie Solanas. Den var bemærkelsesværdigt god, bemærkelsesværdigt syret og bemærkelsesværdigt interessant.

  2. Hi Ida,
    I’ve already thought you’re needing all your time for finishing your thesis. Now you’re back. That’s good.
    I read your article “SPOT on Nordic Voices”. It doesn’t matter, that it is in Danish. By the help of some web page translators, I got a raw text. I experienced that the translation from Danish into English is much better than into German. Sure, the text still needs a post-processing. Also, the app does not know all Danish words. It is sometimes funny, f.e. “I get a glass of hot tea, placed on a metalfad”, “…but the language enthusiast in me has already kriblende fingers…” and so forth. Nevertheless, the article is easy to understand. And unknown words can also be guessed well.
    In your, you showed us a vital thought: “The language has been an instrument that indecipherable and interpreted, but can only be experienced and felt instinctively.” I’ll keep it in my mind.
    Some days before I finished Jarett Kobek’s novel “I hate the Internet”. I recommend it, but be forewarned in his own words: “This bad novel, which is a morality lesson about the Internet, was written on a computer. You are suffering the moral outrage of a hypocritical writer who has profited from the spoils of slavery.”
    Today a postcard came in with the following text: “Beer is not the answer. Beer is the question. ‘Yes’ is the answer.” Cheers!
    I wish you a beautiful sunny summer.
    Best regards
    Wolfgang
