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!

Hi dears

How was your Monday?
Mine was fulfilling but mostly exhausting. I kind of feel like all my energy has been sucked out. Wish we could just use a charger like our mobile phones do.

Current music mood: Alt-J. Just laying down a bit and trying to get my mind in order. Enjoy.

Free Money

I kind of feel like I'm an old soul trapped in a young body. Discovering new music is something I enjoy but nothing compares to rediscovering old albums. Number one favorite: Patti Smith's Horses.


The song Free Money really makes me wonder about certain things. I believe there's some underlying criticism on this society that is obsessed with money. Even back then, in 1975, she stood for something.

I hope this gives you something to think about during these (still rainy) summer days. Money can come in handy but please don't let it control your lives. It doesn't define you.

Lots of love


PS: If you ever have the chance to watch Patti Smith live, please do. She's the most inspiring artist I've ever seen.
