Hello friends of the world!


Because I despise google translate, I've now decided to write in English as well and create a 50/50 Norwegian/English blog. (Though I'm sure my friends will still translate my Norwegian posts into ridiculous English ones.)


My last blog was quite an ugly-looking one, and so I decided to move it and combine it with my own website, however, I've still kept the name. And the reason is simple - I'm a bit of an 'on and off' type of blogger and because my blog keeps dying (= I don't blog every single day because I have a life), by naming it 'The Phoenix' I can be free as a bird and blog whenever I want. Another reason is of course that I wish I was a phoenix.





Definition of PHOENIX (Stolen from Wikipedia):


In Greek mythology, a phoenix or phenix (Greek: φοῖνιξ phoinix; Latin: phoenix, phœnix, fenix) is a long-lived bird that is cyclically regenerated or reborn. Associated with the sun, a phoenix obtains new life by arising from the ashes of its predecessor. According to some sources, the phoenix dies in a show of flames and combustion, although there are other sources that claim that the legendary bird dies and simply decomposes before being born again. According to some texts, the phoenix could live over 1,400 years before rebirth. In the historical record, the phoenix "could symbolize renewal in general as well as the sun, time, the Empire, metempsychosis, consecration, resurrection, life in the heavenly Paradise, Christ, Mary, virginity, the exceptional man, and certain aspects of Christian life". (Beautiful isn't it?)


PHOENIX may also refer to:

  • The Phoenix Artist Club - 'Entertaining entertainers since 1988'

  • Phoenix - The premiere gay bar of the East Village

  • Phoenix Cleaners - Tulsa, OK, US

  • Phoenix Nail and Spa - Davenport, Iowa



Ans now, seeing as you know everything about phoenixes, here is a list of essential things you need ot know about me:
