Thin people

Posted on

I am not thin, but I’m not fat either. I’m quite regular, size Small. So why can’t I complain about my body? Thin people also have issues about their body.

The reason I’m blogging about this, is because I was with some friends yesterday and we got talking about beauty and bodies and self confidence. I told them that I didn’t really like my body and that I felt like losing a few pounds, and my friend who is a bit bigger than me, gave me this look. Who the hell do you think you are too say something like that?

Thin people also have body issues. Most girls have, and I don’t think that we should judge people by that, no matter how thin or beautiful they are. No matter what, one should be allowed to have issues with one self. I don’t say that we should, but I would rather want my friends to help me get over my issues or look past them. Not saying that they don’t matter because I’m thin.

One of the greatest singers…

I know I am really late, but Whitney Houston is dead!

I wish we could share our Whitney-moments. If you ever come and visit this blog, and read this; Please, comment and tell about your best Whitney-moment. I do not care if it is tomorrow or next year, just tell the story.

I will go first:

I remember the very first time I really heard Whitney Houston. I had heard her before on the radio, but never really taken notice.

My class were on our way into Oslo on a field trip, and I was sitting with one of my best friends at that time. We were listening to music on our Ipods, and suddenly she poked me and smiled widely. “You have to listen to this song”, she said and gave her headset. It was Greatest love, and I completely fell in love with it. It was simply love at first sight, or noise.

(I know that this really ruins the story, but I feel like I should tell you that this girl and I are not friends anymore.)

Hope to see you soon!

 

Frenemies

(I know that the title is really bad, but it was the only suiting thing I could come up with.)

I have a lot of musician friends, and a lot of them are in my year in school. I am good friends with all of them, and one is actually one of my best friends, but we are also the worst enemies!

We help each other, and support each other, until we play on the same concert or competition. (Competitions does not include me. I do not like to compete in music.) Sometimes I find myself wishing that my friends will play wrong.

I actually have a quite recent example. About two weeks ago my year were having a pretty big concert, and I played Meditation from Thaïs by Massanet, and I made a huge miss. Up to that miss I  had played rather well, but it was not really the same after it. When I was finished, one of my best friends, whom I mentioned above, played a piece by Liszt on the piano, and I found myself thinking: “Make a miss, a huge miss. Bigger than the one I did”, and she did! She made a much bigger mistake than I did, and I have felt so bad about it ever since!

That is how musicians are. We love and despise one another. I have heard other people talk about it, and we do it all the time. I have a little feeling that the classical group is the worst. Sometimes, it is all about competition. Not only when we compete, but also on practice and on concerts.

A little flower to enlighten your mood, after I destroyed it with my little story.

I hope I will be seeing you again soon!
