It’s been way too long since I’ve had the time to sit down somewhere, outside of my own home to do some creative writing. So to finally have a weekend where I don’t have much planned, and also was able to get out of the house at a reasonable time, feels amazing!
And one of my favorite places to write in Oslo (Kulturhuset) isn’t overpacked for once! Some Saturdays I find it impossible to get a table there, but because of the winter sports that are going on today, people seem to be elsewhere to enjoy that.
Me, I’ve never been much into winter sports. Probably one of the most non-Norwegian things to say, but it’s the truth and I’m sticking to it.
I grew up in a household where my mom had winter sports (and other sports for that matter) constantly on the tv, and I think that’s what put me off watching sports. I just don’t find any joy in it. I could maybe join in for the party and the atmosphere, but other than that, I don’t really give a rat’s ass about who crosses that finish line first or last.
But today I’m very grateful for the big love of winter sports that most people here have because it got me a nice table at Kulturhuset, I didn’t have to stand in line forever to get my oat milk latté and for the quiet and relaxed vibe. The sun even showed up for a little while when I was walking over here.
This is a good Saturday, and I’m so happy I made it out to have some change of scenery. I definitely needed it to get my creative juices flowing more easily!
Now it’s time for me to get down to business and plan some interesting stuff, and to keep writing my novel!
I hope you’re all having an AMAZING Saturday!
