50s - the birth of Rock 'n Roll and a wonderful fashion decade.
The American economy was on the upswing, Rock 'n Roll was hitting the radios. The Korean War and the beginning of the Cold War created a politically conservative climate. Fear of Communism where everywhere and the decolonization in Africa and Asia occurred in the 50s, and in the following decade of the 1960s.

Yesterday the center I work on, Triaden, had a great party for all it's employees and it was a huge success! It was given awards to the best stores in different categories. It was 8 awards and 2 awards of honor. For those of you who doesn't know - I work at a coffee bar. We were nominated for two awards out of the 8, but we didn't win any of them. At last the center leader was to give out the very last award, the award of honor; "Store of the Year 2009" - everyone were so excited. Guess who won? WE DID. Ah, we were all so proud, receiving the award from the center leader. The night ended by buses returning home at 02 A.M, after a LONG and amazing night! Great food, music, drinks, friends and other great people - a lot of dancing, singing/screaming and mingling. Loads of smiling, laughing and fun - and today? Today I'm tired. Definitely worth it. Congrats to my great colleagues - we have definitely deserved this award!

My forhead is boiling and I feel dizzy. Luckily the school day is over very soon. Class is a mess and no one finds the concentration to do anything, no one is even pretending to do something reasonable. Armin - turning 18 today actually - is taking pictures of himself with Ingrid's cell phone and Katinka and Ingrid is laughing at a picture of our teacher. I can't really hear Synnøve and Marit's conversation but I bet it has something to do with Africa. Anissa is borrowing my hand cream, Simen is eating on a pen and Sebastian is probably just messing around on the internet on his lame computer, while Ken and I look cool with our awesome MacBooks. Everyone is just doing there thing. The substitue seems to have given up, on the dawn of the day, sitting there chewing on his Fisherman's Friend. I'm boiling. Luckily the school day is over very soon.xx,
