"Go back to where you came from fucking nigger whore!"

(warning: there's unpleasant wordage below and harsh opinions. I apologise in advance for any misspelled words, and harsh wordage)

The last week or so racism has been a frequently mentioned topic here in Norway after the beautiful video one of Norway's top blogger published, where her co-actor is of african decent, the video received tons of racist comments about her co-actor. Such a beautiful man getting tons of hate based off of one thing, and one thing only. His RACE, being a black man in a white country, co-acting against a white, blond and light eyed girl. To be honest I'm not big on ready what we here call "pink bloggers" content, and I'm neither for or against it. But I really put my respect on her answer to the comments.

We live in a multicultural society, we live in multicultural countries, with multicultural friends. I honestly don't understand what brings some people to say and comment racist things like it's nothing, and when asked it's the person being subjected to racism's fault. He or she was asking for it. You must feels so fucking miserable in your own skin to say things like that, you must really be an insecure piece of shit to think it's alright to say horrible things to others, whether it's racist, discriminating or anything horrible. When saying you I'm not talking to the everyday person who doesn't slam derogatory and racist words to other people, no matter the race they are.

The tilte is just one of the few things I've gotten thrown on me as a mixed race person through out the years. I thought we'd be better at treating one another with respect in this day and age, I thought we were passed the time where yelling derogatory words were a common occurrence. It makes me sad to think that living in 2017 we're yet so far behind. I've heard it all from "go back where you came from" to "you must find yourself lucky to have been bought by a pimp here, you bastard whore dosen't deserve to be here!", I've been called every word in the book to describe a dark-skinned person, light skinned person, a person of mixed decent and race. But don't worry, it's just me that can't take a joke right? I was obviously asking for it when I was standing there minding my own business!

I'm really lucky I've learned to not let stuff like that effect me, that I don't take it to heart, I get told "jokes" like "what's the difference between a Norwegian girl and you? She can say hello to her dad", I've been asked if my father even has custody over me and much more. WHICH WORLD is that okay for anyone to say any of the things mentioned to any race at all?

I rather they say that too me, than to an insecure young girl or boy, I rather take that punch for someone who needs it, so that they can go that day at least and not hear that, to not be effected by idiots like that for just one day at least.

I'm not the person to really get involved in discussions over themes like this, but to be real I've had it with this bullshit! And it pisses me off that someone who feels so miserable and so bad about themselves think it's alright to ruin someones confidence, day and to actually ruin someones life. Yeah that's right, hearing words like that for someone who has their own struggles already does major damage to that persons psyche.

To you that have experienced racial slurs and behaviour, I'm so so sorry, and I honestly know how it is, I just want you to know that there isn't anything wrong with you, you're perfect just as you are, no matter what race, religion or sex you are, you are appreciated and you're STRONG! You're not the problem, you're not asking for it, it's their fault, who ever says anything derogatory or racial or discriminating to you, they are the REAL PROBLEM, not you!

If you ever feel bad for who you are, what skin colour you have, what pronoun you go by or whatever it is you find as flaws, go to a mirror, look at yourself, and know there is NOTHING wrong with you, it's who ever put those thoughts and doubts in your head. I know it's a cliché thing to say, but as a matter of fact, it's true. And a cliché is a cliché for a reason, it works.

Embrace you race, your sex, your looks, and be freaking proud of who you are! I'm so proud of my heritage, and being mixed race. I wouldn't change it for the world, even if I could! ❤️ Spread positive vibes and most importantly, be yourself and embrace who YOU are!

Randomly at like 11.30 pm on Friday, I decided I was going to do something with the canvas I've had laying around for the past year or so. I started playing with the idea of the phrase "Life is GUCCI" and figured I'd shamelessly incorporate some self promo in there with meh own logo!

I'll put the pictures below, as for the seemingly blank space before the V in VIBES, I was thinking of maybe putting an exclamation mark, so it's kind of weird and off.

Video for my process will below!

Throwback

So for todays post I thought I'd show you a little taste of my photographic archive. Side note, some of these photos are from when i first started! I was thinking it might be a little nice to kind of see where I started developing my own style, and to see some progress in what I've done over the years. Improving all from the way I take pictures, to how i edit the raw files to retouching! I'm DREADING to show you my retouch from before if I even did so.

Might as well tell you a little background;

So i started getting into photography my first year og high school, where i was really into staged photography, my photos are often still staged but by staged in this context I mean fantasy type of staged, a lot of gore as well as just experimenting with all types of photography! I loved playing with fake blood and the more morbid side of things, as you can tell under here.

Then after a fase with a lot of exploration, I went on to a fase of thinking all I wanted to do was concert photography, so i started with that, and realised quickly that it wasn't quite my calling, but I'll still show you a few attempts. *some better than others, but i want to show you both the good and the bad, which is all my own personal bias opinion.

After going back and forth for a while I finally found what I felt fit me, which was fashion, especially men's fashion, and tattoos. I've been touching on it lightly during my first years but it was really something I was somewhat scared of trying. I knew I did good with what I'd previously done, seeing my grades in creative subject excelled compared to some other subjects. I needed to find something that I didn't get bored of, but where i could use traits from the way i staged photographs in the past and flip it into a strength in fashion. I'm going to show you some old attempts on street fashion. I do still find several of my old photographs good to look at, such as the far right one, on the first row.

The two first on the second row below is still some of my FAVORITES of all times! Especially the middle one on the second row.

So this happened!

Turns out my head decided I needed to start blogging, guess I'm that important! haha just kidding. But yeah, suddenly without really thinking twice about it I decided I should start blogging. Not really sure how to do this, what language to blog in or how all this is supposed to work out. Maybe I should write both english and Norwegian? (like this post) which should come first in that case?

I was primarily thinking about having a picture separate the two languages, maybe Norwegian on top and english under? I honestly have no idea, seeing I'm really not the best as writing. Might even get a friend to join to spice up the content.

I'm currently thinking of keeping most of the content creative and lifestyle based, incorporate vlogs, challenge videos, tags etc. As well as documenting travels and just new thing I'm up to. Maybe what WE are up to once someone joins?

What do you guys think of the header by the way? (Photo: Ida Susanne Aspaas Olsen)

____________________________________

Så dette skjedde!

Viser seg at mitt hodet bestemte seg impulsivt at blogging var nor jeg bør begynne med, for jeg er jo så vikitg! haha bare tuller. Men ja, plutselig uten å egentlig tenke meg om bestemte jeg meg for å begynne å blogge. Er ikke særlig sikker på hvordan jeg skal gjøre dette, hvilket språk jeg skal skrive på og hvordan dette hele skal funke. Kanskje jeg bør skrive på begge språk, engelsk og norsk? (som dette innegget) hvilket bør komme først da eventuelt?

Jeg tenkte hovedsaklig på å ha et bilde som skille mellom de to språkene, kanskje norsk først og engelsk under? Jeg har virkelig ingen anelse, med tanke på at jeg ikke er den beste til å skrive. Kanskje jeg får med en venn til å være med for å "spice" opp innholdet litt.

Jeg tenker nå å holde innholdet mer på den kreative siden, og mer livsstil basert, blande inn litt video innlegg, utfordrings videoer og lignende. Det oppå det mer "normale" innholdet, dokumentere reiser og nye ting jeg holder på med. Kanskje hva VI holder på med i det noen blir med?

Hva tenker dere om headeren forresten? (foto: Ida Susanne Aspaas Olsen)
