Going to Poland and Germany

I'm not going to blog for a week. I'm going to Poland and Germany a week with my school.
We are going to visit the nazi concentration camps outside Krakow in Poland, and two other in Germany.
It will be quite educational and I think it will set some impressions for the rest of my life.

What do you think of what the Nazis did?

Data Retention Directive

This week, the european union's "data retention directice" was introduced in Norway (where I live).
The directive will store all of traffic data for e-mail, various types of telephony and Internet access, identities and the timing for the communication and location data for mobile communications. This has been debated for a long time. The government has gone against the people, in spite of large demonstrations. The Government believes this will control the privacy, but it does the very opposite. Now suddenly everyone is looked upon as possible criminals and guilty people.
Should the government have control of all you private messages, e-mails and so on? What do you think?

Strength workout!

Three times a week a go to the gym and have a strength workout.
I follow the Strong lifts program with 5x5 reps/sets on all exercises. This includes Squats, Bench press, Deadlift, Barebell row and Overhead press. I had to drop the squats because of a leg injury last week.
To the point, I started with something called "Dynamic warmup" this day. It consists of differnt stretching exercises to acchive better mobility.

Happiness

My thoughts on happiness!


What I'm trying to do is to live happy and living right now, living in the moment and not think too much about the past. If you have too much trouble and regrets, I will not say that you are completely happy. Maybe I'm pulling apart the word happy, but I think the word happy is a very wide term that tell a lot. It is important to lay out your problems and fix them, instead of lying in bed before you sleep and think about them. Most problems can not be solved by thinking on them. If you are regretting something, it does not help going around and think about it. Words like "I should really have done this and that"and "regret", is perhaps occured because of this. People can not put things behind them, they do not put  their problems on the table and think too much about the past.
You can't change the past!As Gandhi said, "you should live every day like it was your last" is good to live happily.One should do what you want, you may not be very happy if you go around and do things you do not like. Would you like to travel somewhere in the world, go there before it's too late. Are you thinking: "oh, there I want to go!", then do it! I try my best to live a bit like this and not thinking so much about the past and the future but I live now and do what I want to.
