MAKE A LIST OF WHY YOU LOVE SOMEONE

Jeg følger Tony Robbins på Instagram (hvis I ikke allerede kender Tony Robbins, men elsker hvad der har at gøre med coaching og selvudvikling, så tjek ham ud! Der er blandt andet en film om ham på Netflix som hedder ‘I am not your guru’), og forleden lagde han et billede ud hvor der stod:
Give your best friend and/or significant other a list of reasons why you love them“.

Jeg syntes simpelthen at tanken var så fin og smuk, jeg screenshottede straks billedet og i dag fik jeg så sat mig ned og skrevet et lille brev til henholdsvis min mor, far, søster og kæreste, med grunde til at jeg elsker dem. Jeg tænkte at jeg ville dele tanken herinde, ikke brevene – de er for private, og er kun til de enkelte personer. Men syntes at det var så fin en lille ting at gøre, og det kræver ikke det helt vilde, og det kan man give som et julekort – et helt specielt julekort, hvor der er lagt ekstra tanke og følelse i det. Jeg håber at de bliver glade for det, og jeg glæder mig til at se deres ansigtsudtryk når de læser dem.

I’m following Tony Robbins on Instagram (if you do not already know Tony Robbins, but you are interested in coaching and self development, you should definitely check him out! There’s a movie about him on Netflix called ‘I am not your guru’), and the other day he posted a picture saying:
“Give your best friend and/or significant other a list of reasons why you love them”.

And I thought that it was just the sweetest and kindest thing one can do for another, I immediately took a screenshot of the picture, and today I sat down and wrote a little letter for my mom, dad, sister and boyfriend, with reasons for why I love them. I thought I would share the thought in here, not the letters – they are too private, and only meant for the specific persons. But I thought that it was such a nice gesture, and something you can give as a Christmas card – a very special card, where you’ve put some extra thoughts and feelings into it. I hope that they’ll get happy when they receive it, and I cannot wait to see the look on their face as they read it.

DESK DREAMS AND LIFE UPDATE

Jeg er tilbage! Jeg har endelig fået afleveret mine to eksamener (Public Relations og Social Media Management), og er lykkelig, for jeg starter først skole igen i starten af februar, det er altså lidt vildt. Jeg har så mange ting jeg gerne vil nå, folk jeg vil se, osv. osv. Så det er skønt at have hele januar helt fri til alt dette. Jeg skal lige på arbejde hele weekenden, og mandag aften, men så er der juleferie!

Men, tænkte jeg lige ville komme med en mindre update, nu hvor jeg ikke har været aktiv herinde i alt for lang tid. Lige for tiden går jeg og drømmer om at lave et lille ‘mini kontor’ herhjemme. Pt. sidder jeg nemlig ved vores spisebord og laver lektier osv., hvilket egentlig også fungerer fint nok, men jeg vil enormt gerne have et lille sted hvor jeg kan sidde og føle mig ekstra produktiv, og som dermed kan være mit lille arbejdssted. Så jeg skal snart have købt mig et lille skrivebord (har allerede et i tankerne), og så have købt mig en stol dertil, og det er sådan set det. Så skal det måske dekoreres med et lille lys, og min kalender skal fast ligge på bordet. Ja, jeg har visualiseret det hele for mig, og tror at det bliver skide godt.

Nu til mine januar planer, for jeg har allerede mange ting jeg gerne vil, og tænkte at noget af det måske kunne inspirere jer, så dem får I her:

– læse ‘Better than Before’ af Gretchen Rubin
– læse ‘Harry Potter and the Cursed Child’ af J.K. Rowling
– læse ‘Linchpin’ af Seth Godin
(som I nok kan se, så får jeg ikke læst alle de fritidsbøger jeg gerne vil normalt når jeg studerer, så der skal pløjes bøger igennem nu)
– se Normann Copenhagen på Østerbro
– på Glyptoteket
– på Lousiana Museum
– få set en masse veninder
– på Cousins med min mor
– i genbrugsbutikker med min veninde, som lige har fået lejlighed
– få gået en masse ture
– undersøge hvor meget en altan vil koste at få lavet
– så småt begynde at forberede bachelor projekt

I’m back! I’ve finally handed in my two exams (Public Relations and Social Media Management), and I’m so happy, because my school first begin once in February again, it’s crazy. I have so many things I want to do, and people I want to see etc. So it’s absolutely wonderful to have all of January free for this. I just have to work all weekend and on Monday evening, and then it’s Christmas Holiday!

But I thought I would update you guys, since I haven’t been very active in here lately. At the moment I’m dreaming about making a little mini office in our apartment. Currently I’m just sitting at our Dinning table when I make homeworks etc., which is also working fine, but I really want a little place where I can just sit and feel extra productive, and which can function as my little working space. So soon I’m going to buy a little desk (I have one in my mind), and a chair for it, and that’s it. Maybe a little candle, and my calendar by the table. Yep, I’ve been visualizing this for myself, and I think it’s going to be so good.

Now for my January plans, cause I already have a lot in my mind, and I thought I would share it with you guys, if you could find any inspiration in it: 

– read ‘Better than Before’ by Gretchen Rubin
– read ‘Harry Potter and the Cursed Child’ by J.K. Rowling
– read ‘Linchpin’ by Seth Godin
(as you can see, I never get to read all my hobby books when I study, so I want to read a lot of them now)
– see Normann Copenhagen on Østerbro
– go to Glyptoteket
– visit Lousiana Museum
– see a lot of my girlfriends
– on Cousins with my mom
– in recycling stores with my friend, who just got her own apartment
– go for a lot of walks 
– investigate how much a balcony would cost
– slowly begin preparing for the bachelor project

CHRISTMAS VLOG 2ND ADVENT

I går var en super hyggelig 2. advent. Min kæreste og jeg sov lige til vi vågnede, spiste morgenmad, åbnede vores pakkekalendre, lavede juice og en god frokost. Og så tog vi ellers afsted mod familie bageren, for at mødes med det meste af min familie og bage julekager i massevis. Jeg lavede en lille vlog fra dagen, øver mig på at gøre dem bedre og bedre, lad mig endelig vide hvad I synes om den! Jeg håber også at I havde en skøn 2. advent, og at I har jer en dejlig jul indtil videre. I dag kl. 12 får jeg endnu en eksamen, så jeg kommer nok ikke til at være så aktiv herinde før jeg har afsluttet mine 2 eksamener (er færdig d.16. december!). Men derefter har jeg hele januar fri, så glæd jer til masser af ting og sager herinde! Glædelig jul!

Yesterday I had a lovely 2nd Advent. My boyfriend and I slept till we couldn’t anymore, ate breakfast, opened our Christmas calendars, made some juice and a good lunch. Afterwards we went to the family bakery, and met up with most of my family to bake Christmas cookies. I made a little vlog for the day, I’m practicing more and more with the filming, so please let me know what you think about it! I hope you all had a wonderful 2nd Advent, and that you have a great Christmas so far. Today at 12 o’clock I’m getting another exam assignment, so I’m not going to be so active on the blog before I’ve finished my 2 exams (I’m done December 16!). But I have free from school all of January, so look forward to a lot of good stuff in here! Merry Christmas!

How not following Your Dreams, can keep your Passion Alive

Hm, jeg har haft dette indlæg i tankerne længe. Men har ikke helt vidst hvordan jeg skulle formulere mig ordentligt. For overskriften lyder måske lidt demotiverende og lidt af en dream-killler, men tro mig, jeg går all-in for at man skal følge sine drømme og sine passioner. Men, for ca. en måneds tid siden læste jeg bogen Big Magic – creative living beyond fear skrevet af Elizabeth Gilbert. Og den har mildest talt ændret mit syn på drømme.

Jeg må hellere lige starte med at fortælle, at jeg – siden jeg har været helt lille – altid har elsket at skrive. Der var virkelig intet bedre end at få skriftlige stile og essays for i folkeskolen. Jeg knuselskede at finde på historier. Så da jeg var 13 år fik jeg en idé til en større historie, og siden den dag, har mit mål og mine drømme været, at “når jeg blev stor, skulle jeg være forfatter”. Og tro mig, drømmen har hængt ved lige siden. Efter gymnasiet var jeg voldsomt meget i tvivl om hvad jeg skulle vælge at gøre. Jeg overvejede om jeg skulle give det et skud og søge ind på Forfatterskolen og forfølge min drøm. Men, det har altid ligget i baghovedet det med ‘hvad hvis det nu ikke lykkedes, og du så pludselig ikke kan tjene nogle penge og leve’. Så istedet valgte jeg at søge Litteraturvidenskab på Københavns Universitet som første prioritet. Men, mit snit var ikke højt nok, og jeg endte på Engelsk og Organisationskommunikation på Copenhagen Business School. Som jo vitterligt er noget helt andet. Men, jeg tror faktisk det endte med at være det rigtige for mig.

Tilbage til bogen. Elizabeth Gilbert anbefaler at man ikke har sine kreative drømme og passioner som sit primære job. Og det af den enkelte grund, at så bliver du ‘afhængig’ af at skulle frembringe og skabe noget. Du bliver altså finansielt afhængig af at skulle skabe noget godt hele tiden. Og det er bare stort set fysisk umuligt. For kreativiteten kommer ikke til os hele tiden. Og at lægge det pres på ens kreative side, at det skal være så godt hele tiden, at man kan tjene penge på det – kan i sidste ende gå ind og dræbe ens lyst til at være kreativ, og dermed dræbe din passion.

Og det vil jeg ikke ende med. Jeg elsker at skrive, og har altid elsket det. Og jeg vil virkelig aldrig nå til det punkt, hvor jeg vil føle at det er irriterende, eller noget som bare ‘skal gøres’. Nok skriver jeg ikke så meget mere, for jeg har tusinde andre ting at tage mig til. Men når jeg så skriver – så elsker jeg det, virkelig højt.

Dermed ikke sagt at jeg har droppet drømmen om at blive forfatter for good. Den er her stadig. Men det er mere en fritidsaktivitet, end noget jeg anser som skal være min ‘fulde levevej’. Jeg har en færdig historie liggende, og jeg arbejder på at prøve at få den udgivet. Jeg tror på at det nok skal lykkedes engang. Og hvis ikke, så er det også okay. Det vigtigste er at jeg bliver ved med at skrive – fordi jeg kan lide det. At jeg skaber noget for mig selv, og at jeg altid vil elske at være kreativ.

Med alt det sagt, så ville jeg lige anbefale alle at læse Elizabeth Gilbert’s bog. For den er virkelig fantastisk!

So, I’ve had this post in my mind for a long time. But I didn’t quiet know how I should formulate myself clearly. Because the title might sound a bit demotivating and kind of a dream-killer, but trust me, I’m all in for following your dreams and passions. But, for about a month ago I read this book called Big Magic – creative living beyond fear written by Elizabeth Gilbert. And it has changed my view upon dreams.

Let me start by telling you, that ever since I was very small, I’ve always loved to write. There was nothing better than having to write stories and essays in elementary school. I completely loved to create stories. When I was 13 years old I came up with an idea for a bigger story and ever since that day, my goal and my dream has been ‘that when I get big, I’m going to become an Author’. And trust my, the dream is still alive. After high school I was so in doubt about what to do. I considered applying for the Author school here in Copenhagen and following my dream. However, I’ve always had the thought in the back of my mind ‘what if you don’t succeed, and suddenly you cannot earn any money and you cannot live’. So instead I chose to apply for Litteratur science on Copenhagen University as my first priority. However, my grades weren’t high enough, and I ended up on English and Organisation Communication at Copenhagen Business School. Which is something completely different. But, I do believe this ended up being the right thing for me.

Back to the book. Elizabeth Gilbert does not recommend that you have your creative dreams and passions as your primary job. And that is because of the simply reason that you get ‘dependent’ on creating something. You’ll become financially dependent on having to create something good all the time. And that is just physically impossible. Because creativity does not come to us all the time. And putting that kind of pressure on your creative side, that it has to be good all the time, so that you can make money out of it – might eventually kill your desire to create and be creative, and thereby kill your passion for the field.

And that I do certainly not want to end up with. I love to write, and I always have. And I never want to get to that point where it becomes annoying, or something that I just ‘have to do’. I do not write that much anymore, because I have a million other things to do. But when I write – I love it so much. 

But I’m hereby not saying that I’ve given up on my dream to become an Author. It’s still there. But I see it more as an free time activity, than I’m seeing it as a full time job. I have a finished story laying around, and I’m working on getting it published. I believe that I will succeed with it eventually. And if not, that’s okay. The most important part is that I keep writing – because I like to. And that I keep creating for myself, and that I’ll always love being creative.

With all that being said, I just want to recommend everyone to read Elizabeth Gilbert’s book. It’s amazing!

A Sick Week + A Video from Last Week

Denne her uge blev alt andet end hvad jeg lige havde planlagt. I mandags var jeg max produktiv ovenpå en dejlig efterårsferie, og havde skrevet ned hvad jeg skulle alle ugens dage. Jeg skulle blandt andet mødes med en veninde og lave opgave til skolen, få læst en masse, taget min afsluttende test til Sundhedskurset, mødes med en anden veninde og se en kunstudstilling, og til DIGNITY award med mit nye frivillige arbejde på den franske ambassade. Men nej. Mandag aften begyndte forkølelsen at ramme mig, og da jeg vågnede tirsdag morgen, var den helt gal. Og det har den været lige siden. Det er først i dag at jeg er ved at føle mig nogenlunde på toppen igen, og så står hele min weekend endda på arbejde fra 10-17 begge dage. Puha. Nå, men i mandags nåede jeg også at få bixet en lille video fra min herlige efterårsferie sammen til jer, og den får I så nu. Håber at I har haft en bedre uge end mig derude, og at I får en skøn weekend!

This week what everything else but what I planned it should be. This Monday I was super productive after a wonderful fall vacation, and I had written down everything I had to to for the rest of the week. I was going to meet with a friend to make some assignments for school, read a lot, take my finishing test for the health course, meet another friend and see an art exhibition, and to DIGNITY award with my new volunteer job at the french embassy. But no. Monday morning I work up and started feeling the cold hit me, and when I woke up Tuesday morning, I felt really sick. And it has been there ever since. It is first today that I’ve started to feel bit fresh again, and now my weekend consist of work both Saturday and Sunday from 10-17, gosh. Anyways, this Monday I mixed this little video together with some glimpse from my lovely fall vacation, which you finally get to see. I hope that you’ve all had a better week than I’ve, and that you’ll get a lovely weekend!

A Lovely Summer House Trip

skaermbillede-2016-09-25-kl-16-40-51

Jeg er lige kommet hjem fra en skøn og afslappende sommerhus tur med min familie (mor, far, søster, kæreste, tante, 2 onkler, 2 fætre, kusine og mormor og morfar). Vi fik slappet, læst blade, spillet pool, nydt solen, gået tur på stranden og set tv og dovnet. Det var bare dejligt og hyggeligt!

I just got home from a lovely and relaxing summer house trip with my family (mom, dad, sister, boyfriend, Aunt, 2 Uncles, 3 cousins and my grandma and granddad). We relaxed, read magazines, played pool, enjoyed the sun, went for a walk down on the beach, watched tv and just had a good time. It was so lovely and cozy!

Work, read and a comedy show

skaermbillede-2016-09-08-kl-18-27-35Halløj! Lige en lille hurtig opdatering herfra. Den har stået på arbejde hele weekenden, og i dag står den på læsning hele dagen, indtil jeg i aften skal ind og se Anders Matthesens nye show ‘Shhh’ (hvilket jeg glæder mig meget til, den mand er simpelthen så sjov).
Jeg ønsker jer alle en rigtig god dag!

Hi! Just a little quick update from me. I’ve been working all weekend and today I have to read all day, until tonight where I’m going to see a comedy show by one of Denmark’s most famous comedians (Anders Matthesens), so that I’m looking so much forward to.
I just wanted to wish you all a great day!

So that is some of what I have been up to lately. And the reason for why I haven’t blogged or anything in so long is, as mentioned earlier, because I had summer school throughout all of July. But, I finished my two exams last week, and now I finally have summer holiday! Even better, on Monday my boyfriend and I are going to New York! So, remember to follow me on Instagram where I will update a lot @Camillatromborg

Summer school

Skærmbillede 2016-07-07 kl. 10.25.01
Hej allesammen! Bloggen dør lidt hen for tiden, det er jeg simpelthen så ked af. Det er pga. sommerskole. Jeg har simpelthen så meget der skal læses, og timer jeg skal til, at der ikke er tid til meget andet resten af denne måned. Dog er det nogle rigtig spændende timer jeg har på sommerskolen. Jeg har to fag, det ene hedder Introduction to Marketing og det andet hedder Persuasion and Marketing Communication. Jeg lærer så mange nye spændende ting! Men, jeg kan alligevel ikke helt vente med at have sommerferie og lave en MASSE spændende indhold til jer. Jeg har så mange ideer til blog indlæg og youtube videoer. Og jeg vil også rigtig gerne blive endnu bedre til at tage billeder. Hvis I har nogle ideer til hvad I gerne vil se i video form, eller læse om her på bloggen, så lad mig endelig vide det.

Jeg håber at I nyder sommerferien, de bedste hilsner herfra!

Hi guys, the blog is dying slowly – so so sorry about it, it’s all because of Summer School! I just have so many homeworks to read, and classes, that I don’t have time for much else this entire month. Nonetheless, it is some highly interesting classes I am taking. I am taking to courses, one called Introduction to Marketing and the other one called Persuasion and Marketing Communication. I am learning so many excited things! But, I cannot wait to finish the courses and have some summer holiday and make LOTS of interesting stuff for you guys. I have so many ideas for blog posts and youtube videos. And I really want to start getting better at taking pictures as well. If you guys have any ideas for what you want to see in video form, or read about on the blog, please just let me know. 

Hope you are enjoying your summer holiday, all the best wishes from me!
