I’ve finally found an apartment in Oslo, granted its only until February, but it will do for now. I’ve also started seeing this girl and things are pretty awesome between us. She likes me for who I am, and she has a cool sense of humor and we get along great! So things are moving forward and really starting to take shape.
I’ve also started studying for the exams in December, if I keep that going, I’ll have the grades that I want, no doubt. Things are finally going my way.
3 more days until my birthday, this year I’m turning 26. And the older I get, the wiser I get. At least I think so.
You’d think I would have learned a lot about women, and how to treat them after a 3 year long relationship? But I was a kid during my first relationship.
And I wish with all my heart that I had treated my second girlfriend better. I could’ve surprised her with roses on a random day, I could’ve made breakfast in bed, I could’ve told her how beautiful she is more often. Women appreciate the small things, they actually don’t require the world. I wish I was a better boyfriend. But she could have been a better girlfriend as well.
This is a lesson to all girlfriends and boyfriends out there:
Girls, don’t nag your guy for every single thing. He knows you’re always right, but you don’t have to rub it in his face. Try to sit down and talk to your dude. Talking solves most problems. Don’t just think we can read your minds, tell your dude what’s bothering you. The nagging and angry side of you reminds us of our mothers. And you do not want to be compared to your guys’ mother. Try to take an interest in his “guy things”. Ask if he can teach you how to play Call of duty or offer to watch one of his favorite movies. I know Star Wars might be boring for most girls, but if you show a tiny piece of interest in something he loves, he will love you even more.
Guys, don’t give your girl a reason to be jealous. Most girls actually do see your female friends as potential threats, because women are instinctively always protecting what’s theirs. And you are theirs.
So sit them down, tell them that she is the only woman for you in the world and that your female friends are only friends(!!!).
Introduce them to each other if possible. Girls aren’t that difficult, they appreciate conversation. Talk to them every day, ask them about their day, give her a massage while she complains about the ugly girls at school or work. Rub her feet while you watch a movie, offer to make dinner or just buy her a bar of chocolate. This goes a long way.
Take these few pointers from me, a guy that has some experience and that truly regrets the mistakes he made in past relationships.
I would give anything to turn back time and treat her better.
A little effort goes a long way.
This is what I felt when I first layed eyes on M. I miss that feeling. I miss you.
In a nutshell: My father is the kind of man that if you would compliment his sweater, he would take it off and give it to you.
I was born October 10th 1987 in Chile, but my parents decided to move to Norway. The plane ticket was pretty expensive so my father went ahead before us to save money so he could buy a ticket for my mother and I. For a person to leave his entire family and country just so he could offer a better life for his children is a great thing. 6 months later my mom and I came to Norway. We lived in the city of Kristiansand which is in the southern part of the country. Later on we moved to different small locations until we found our home in a little town called Grua, just an hour north of the capitol.
A couple of years later my brother was born and then my other brother was born. Throughout the years my father gave everything to us. He worked his ass off just so he could give us the same opportunities as the Norwegian kids. A man that came from a Chilean middle class family, in a country where there had just been a military coupe, managed to save up and give his three children and wife the perfect life. I’m not very good at always expressing my feelings, so therefore I’m writing this as a dedication to my dad.
Off course there wasn’t always sunshine and rainbows in our lives, my mother and father got divorced and this affected him greatly, but my brothers and I were there for him, especially my brother Rafael which has shown a lot of patience and given a lot of time to take care of my dad in his time of need.
My father might have not been the perfect husband because he did in fact work a lot, and as needy as women can be (no offence to women), this wasn’t enough for my mother. But it was enough for us, and therefore I want to thank my dad.

Thank you for everything you’ve done for us. Now it’s our time to repay you.
Love your eldest son,
Ricardo Americo Gallegos
En pocas palabras: Mi padre es el tipo de hombre que si tu le das un complemento por su suéter, se lo saca y te lo ofrece como un regalo.
Yo nací el 10 de octubre 1987 en Chile pero mis padres decidieron mudarse a Noruega. El pasaje de avión era muy caro, así que mi padre viajo antes para ahorrar dinero para poder comprar un pasaje para mi madre y yo.
Para que una persona deje toda su familia y su país sólo para poder ofrecer una mejor vida a sus hijos es una gran cosa. 6 meses más tarde, mi madre y yo fuimos a Noruega. Vivíamos en la ciudad de Kristiansand, que está en la parte sur del país. Posteriormente nos trasladamos a diferentes lugares pequeños hasta que encontramos nuestro hogar en un pequeño pueblo llamado Grua, a una hora al norte de la capital.
Un par de años más tarde, mi hermano nació y luego nació mi otro hermano. A lo largo de los años, mi padre nos dio todo para nosotros. Se abrió el culo sólo para poder darnos las mismas oportunidades que los niños noruegos. Un hombre que venía de una familia de clase media chilena, en un país donde recientemente había sobrevivido un golpe militar, logró ahorrar y dar a sus tres hijos y su esposa la vida perfecta. Yo no soy muy bueno para siempre expresar mis sentimientos, por eso lo escribo acá.
No siempre había sol y arco iris en nuestras vidas, mis padres se divorciaron y esto le afectó mucho, pero mis hermanos y yo estuvimos allí para él, especialmente a mi hermano Rafael, que ha demostrado una gran paciencia y a dedicado mucho tiempo para cuidar a mi padre en su momento de necesidad. A lo mejor mi padre no siempre era el marido perfecto, porque él en realidad trabajaba mucho, pero como son las mujeres, muy exigentes, esto no fue suficiente para mi madre.
Pero fue suficiente para nosotros, y por eso quiero dar las gracias a mi padre.
Ricardo Daniel Gallegos Díaz.
Gracias por todo lo que has hecho por nosotros. Ahora es nuestro momento de pagarte de vuelta.
Con gran amor, tu hijo mayor,
Ricardo Américo Gallegos

The giant panda is an endangered species, threatened by continued habitat loss and by a very low birthrate, both in the wild and in captivity. Its range is currently confined to a small portion on the western edge of its historical range, which stretched through southern and eastern China, northern Myanmar, and northern Vietnam.
There comes a time in a man’s life
Where he must take responsibility
For the choices he has made
There are certain things that he must do
Things that he must say
Like I Love you
And I need you
I only want you
And nobody’s goin’ to know if it’s true
I never thought I’d feel this kind of hesitation (tonight)
My hand on another girl
I wish I didn’t have to lie
I wish I could let you know
Cause I love you
And I need you
I only want you
And nobody’s going to know if it’s true
I know you can see through me
(I know you can see through my lies)
You just choose to never know
(No you just don’t know what I do, what I do, oh Melanie)
Why pretend to trust in me?
(I don’t know why you try to trust in me baby, but I think I might know)
(I know, Melanie)
You’d rather this than be alone
(Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh woah)
Cause I love you
And I need you
I only want you
And nobody’s going to know if its true
And I love you
(Cause I love you baby)
And I need you
(When I need, need…)
I only want you
And nobody gonna know…

We’ve all done it before, we’ve all experienced an event in our life that we would prefer to forget. It could be a close person in your life dying, a traumatic event in your family, or like in my case, breaking up with someone.
I recently broke up with my girlfriend (march 1st), but before I talk about the break-up. I want to take you back to the start.
All the way back to the last two weeks of january of 2012. My father had recently experienced a lot of trouble in his work-life, love-life and family, so my brothers and I were there to support him. It was a tough time for my dad, but also a tough time for us.
And by random, I started talking to this girl that I had recently added on Facebook, because I saw a hot picture of her on one of my friends wall.
At that time I thought I didn’t have a chance with her, because I ranked her at a totally different league than me (I often do that).
She was funny, interesting to talk to and really lit up my awful days.
She was a beacon of light in an otherwise dark tunnel.
I nagged and nagged her about meeting me for a cup of coffee, I called her all the time (it took some time before she gave me her number), flirted with her over the phone or social medias until she gave in and agreed to meet me for a date. Twice in a row actually.
The first time I met her in person I was just blown away, she was so breathtakingly beautiful. She opened the door to her apartment and said hi and I froze internally, that feeling of seeing her for the first time was amazing. I can still recreate the same feeling inside me. She introduced me to vegetarian pizza on the first date and vegetarian tacos on the second one. We kissed and laughed and had the best time ever.
Those first months were some of the greatest months of my life. I was in love.
We had the wildest, sweaty and animalistic sex you could imagine.
There was so much passion. I could be myself with her. She was so fun to be around. It can’t be explained. So the months passed and it came to a time were we decided to take it further, we went on a two week vacation together. At that time, that seemed like a good idea, and though everybody warned me about taking such a long vacation that early in the relationship, I didn’t listen, I just wanted to be with this girl ALL THE TIME!
But we argued a lot, about the tiniest things, the sex was still amazing though, but the arguments became larger and more intense. But still, we always kissed and made up. And then, we decided to move in together.
And let me tell you, this is the single moment where it all went wrong. This is the rift in time, where as if we hadn’t moved in together, we would most likely still be together today.
Long story short.
We had even more arguments, we didn’t have sex that frequently and we were miserable. And then, I fucked it all up by doing something bad.
I thought I could fix it, but "hell hath no fury like a woman scorn".
Looking beyond all of the arguments and fighting, she was my true first love and i cherish every single moment I spent with her. Cause there was so much laughter, funny moments, inside jokes, we even made up our own quirky language. And as I’m writing this, tears are falling down on my macbook keyboard, because I have so many feelings for her, that are bound in all the memories I have of her.
So back to the main point and the title of this text, should we all just forget our past loves and move on? Friends and family keep telling me, just move on and forget her, she’s probably forgotten you already. And I respond, how can I? Should I just turn my back and walk away? She changed me as a person, because thats what past loves do, they change and mold you to a different kind of person, either positively or negatively.
One thing I wont forget though, was having sex with you. Only Kanye can explain how it was:
Damn your lips very soft
As I turn my Blackberry off
And I turn your bath water on
And you turn off your iPhone
Careless whispers, eye fucking, biting ass
Neck, ears, hands, legs, eating ass
Your pussy’s too good, I need to crash
Your titties, let ‘em out, free at last
Thank God almighty, they free at last
Tracklist: Kanye West “Yeezus”
We definitely haven’t seen a release like this. No real cover art, no real singles or music videos, and no pre-orders. Yet despite the lack of consistent promotion outside of his (seemingly weekly) projection locations and an appearance on SNL, fans are hyped regardless. This 10-track list has been making its rounds across the net, and it looks like it could be the final list:
01. On Sight
02. Black Skinhead
03. I Am A God (Featuring God)
04. New Slaves (Featuring Frank Ocean)
05. Hold My Liquor (Featuring Chief Keef & Justin Vernon)
06. I’m In It
07. Blood On The Leaves
08. Guilt Trip (Featuring Kid Cudi)
09. Send It Up (Featuring King L)
10. Bound 2 (Featuring Charlie Wilson)
Of course, Ye was in the studio with Rick Rubin just last week. There could be last minute bonus track additions, but that seems unlikely at this point.
