How to be a human being

Hi guys!

Describing how I feel in one word, won't completely explain the thoughts in my head but I'll try to be accurate. Relieved is the best pick, I guess, since I just came back from a great outdoor survival in Sweden. I cannot wait to tell you all about it and show some really awesome pictures. I'm still super excited about all the things I've seen and done and I'm extremely glad to be given the opportunity.

This morning, my excitement was even bigger when I opened up my Spotify. I was in the mood to listen to Glass Animals again and when clicking their name, suddenly their new album appeared.
TODAY IS THE RELEASE DATE OF THEIR NEW ALBUM!
Kind of embarrassed that I had forgotten about it, I discovered the songs on How to be a human being. Next to the previously released singles, there are a lot of great pieces of music on it. Check them out!

What I discovered next, is that they are having a concert in Belgium in three months! A friend of mine (who became a big fan of the band after I mentioned them) is already enthousiast, so I guess I'll be seeing them live soon.

So much luck. Life can be really good.

Lots of love
Celien

Iron Sky

Well hello, the big black hole is back.

Last week, I felt so alive again. I went with a group of youngsters and a phenomenal team of leaders on a camp. Being able to express yourself in the most enthusiastic way possible, feels so incredible. Or, what about convincing cool motor dudes to make bracelets, with success?

It's a pity actually that I'm not always able to be like this during the year. Even if I try not to, I care a bit about what others think of me. I know I shouldn't, but each time this little devil voice inside of me appears and tells me that I'm less than others.

My mind works overtime. It keeps trying to be rational about things but I honestly don't know how anymore. I feel like there's lots of love to give but there's not that one person yet to accept it all. I just want to follow my heart, if only I knew whereto.


But hey, I just got to hold on.

Flaws

I kind of wanted to write about my day 'cause it was really inspiring to me, but all my energy is gone.
Enjoy this song, it's perfect to float away a bit.



I'll keep you posted.

Life Itself

- Come back down to my knees
gotta get back, gotta get free




Finally! The new Glass Animals album is on its way. Can't get enough of this first release.

What's your opinion about their music? Are you as excited as I am with this? 

Love

20 years

Yay!
I turned 20 last week.

I used to think of birthdays as just a regular day, but now I kind of let them symbolize all the things that occurred in my life and made me happy.

It has been such a wonderful year. I've had lots of great moments with my friends and have been able to appreciate them being around even more. I learned to relax a bit more during school and still had the grades I hoped for. My sister graduated, my mom's health is good again and my dog (aka big support) is still alive. I made great traveling trips and have many more planned. I felt love and some pain, but I kept myself going and here I am. Trying to be the best me I can be.

On my birthday, I was surrounded by my friends from dance class, which was too cool to be put in words. I did something I never thought I would do: going to a real nightclub. Luckily it was hiphop night, so I didn't have to be all dressed up with high heels and stuff. Sneakers were allowed, yes.


I also got some great presents from everyone: a mouth organ, a scratch map of the world, a really cool game and a compass!

What do you usually do on your birthday?

Love

PS: This song is worth listening to.

Asleep

I like reading books I've never read 'cause it always makes me look at certain things differently. Some authors are great at showing sides of society I hadn't even thought about. From time to time my mind just wants to calm down, so reading books I've already read can be a nice escape. The one book that always pops up then is The perks of being a wallflower by Stephen Chbosky.

If you haven't read this book, you should. I cannot explain directly what makes it so special, it's just every aspect of it. The spontaneous humor, the truth behind all of it, the sad loneliness that people can relate to,...

What I like even more is the fact that a lot of books and music are talked about in the book. Charlie, the main character, makes some mix tapes with music that's special to himself and other persons. I discovered the song Asleep by The Smiths and knowing all the feelings of Charlie that go along with this song, makes it even better. (Oh I'm confusing reality and fiction again, my bad.) He also said something very meaningful to me, that each song has been listened to by so many people in so many situations. These songs have been supporting or encouraging persons in all different places. It's something I've thought about before, but now even more.


Love

PS: I have lots of things to tell you about, stay tuned!
