She is a blogger who is incredibly talented and her writing touches me far into the heart and deep into my soul❤️
1. What are your nicknames? What do you prefor to be called?
I have nicknames like «Vimsa» (maybe is vims in English…)because I’m luttery. Ideally, I like to be called by my name.
But as a blogger and artist and author, I use the Orkidedatter. There is a reason for that, comes a post about it later, and I’m so incredibly fond of that name.
Now on wordpress I have been called butterfly 🦋by several and it is okei. In my writings, I often use butterflies to interpret myself. I also have a pseudonym name on my blog, so it may be that way because of it. But to be called butterfly I think is just beautiful. Butterflies is meaning something special to me. In the blogworld it is Orkidedatter.
2. What do you do when you can’t sleep at night?
Read, do meditation or my husband gives me foot massage and healing.
3. Do people consider you as talkative or quiet?
My closest family will tell me that I am talkative. I’m not really that. I am both shy and careful. It depends…If I become confident, create a relationship, faith and trust you, I can talk a lot with you.
4. What makes you cry?
There is a lot that can make me cry. Injustice, anger, frustration, fear, sadness, many feelings … I’m starting to cry more easily after I got sick and it can prevent me a bit of everyday. .. there is a difference between sad tears and joy tears ..
5. What is your quilty pleasure?
I have to read books, newspapers and magazines in paper, and read about sex and cohabitation and erotic short stories. It probably because that I have further education in being a counselor and advisor myself and great interest in sexology. I love to write erotic short storys myself and they are released in Norway.
6. Are you more likely to avoid conflict or engage in it head on?
I don’t like conflicts and try to avoid them, but sometimes I have to. It can be a little bit challenge because I start to cry to easy…
In the job context, there is a lot of conflict resolution both in psychiatry that I have worked in and in connection with children in kindergarten and the school system. I always work with heart and have always worked for the best for the child anyway. Many tough situations, trials about incest and others. Then I can’t avoid conflicts. It should be solved in a proper and professional manner, although not always the counterpart does.
Today I have taken a step back and have leave from work because it has been too much and when I cannot work with heart, then I have to think about what to do.
7. Do you have a whole lot of acquaintances or just a few close friends?
Because of my past I am very skeptical and cautious about who I take into my heart. When you get into my heart I am your friend for life if you want. So I have a few close friends. But I can go out, be a little social and when enough is enough I just go home before my anxetiy take over. I have learned to confront and live with anxiety, but I also know my boundaries.
8. What is your all-time favorite town or city?
In Norway it is the city of Kristiansand, it is located almost furthest south in the country and has beaches and archipelagos as like Spain or Crete. Old wooden houses and pleasant pedestrian streets with lovely outdoor seating in the summer and very nice restaurants for dinner and socializing.
A bustling nightlife with many festivals and good music. An atmosphere that gives me energy and a good mood. If you are fond of photographing or just enjoying fantastic scenery, this is a unique place.
Without Norway, I love Crete, the city of Chania and Agia Marina and Platanias. I have no word for this place, the people who live there, culture and nature. I love the sea and the beach, atmosphere, shopping and the food is a experience of it self.
9. What is your favorite song?
That was a difficult one, because I love a lot of different music, but right now I choose,
Lewis Capaldi – tough
Alan Walker – the spectre
10. You can select one person from history and have them truthfully answer one question. Who would you select and what would your question be?
I can go far back in history, there are many interesting people there, but I choose Elvis – the King of rock.
Question: Please, can I design your clothes for the next tour?
11. List someone you know and describe them in five words?
A heart of beaty, soulmate, caring, love, responsive❤️
My husband: https://skogenssoenn.wordpress.com
12. What is your biggest pet peeve?
Falsehood, liars, cheats…
This was challenging and fun. If more of you bloggers want to answer these questions, I am grateful, it’s very nice to learn more about you all.
