Welcome Back

Hola everyone.


I am baaaaaaaack. Whoop whoop. God, I can’t even begin tell you how much I missed being on here, writing stuff, telling you guys about life and other things and of course you guys in general. And soooo much happened, seriously. I know I told you that I’d tell you about the concerts I’ve been to the past days, but I have so much stuff to tell you so I thought I’d give you all a basic update before I go in deeper. So, let’s get right to it.

.

First of all, uni is finally over. Yesterday I had my last lessons and my parents and me moved out of my apartment, so here I am, home again. And right now sitting outside in my garden, enjoying the sun and listening to some 20s and 30s music while writing this. Life is good. But actually the last days at uni were pretty cool too. I had lessons we call a “Tutorium” here. You could say it’s a course were you are just in small groups of like 30 people and get to discuss and practice your work. And this one was about feminist views and overall women and it was really really interesting. Our tutor was super cool and she even had her teeny-tiny baby and her husband with her and guys, I can tell you, a baby makes everything so much better. It was so cute to see them together as a family. I think pretty much everyone of us fell completely in love with the small baby boy.

.

And as much as I can tell, I think the exams went pretty well too. I mean I still don’t really have the results, but I had a good feeling after walking out of them. But god, I was so relieved when they were finally over. It’s such a huge pain in the ass to have to study every single day for over a month and having this small creature jumping around in your head 24/7 telling you to go and study because otherwise you will fail and your life will turn a huge breakdown. Not to mention the pressure of having to get good grades, because if you don’t you will never be able to make it into your dream college and everything you have ever dreamed of will vanish before your very own eyes. Sounds pretty dramatic, doesn’t it? And now imagine having such thoughts swirl around in your head every day because you’re just a little bit masochistic and love pressuring yourself. Okay, I just noticed how crazy I must be sounding so I guess I’ll just stop right here.

.

Anyways, I think the exams went good and that everything turned out just the way I wanted it and now that uni is over I can finally look forward to this upcoming summer and to all of the things I have planned. I want to start working on my second book – I will tell you more about that in the next weeks, don’t worry – and I have the permission to transform our right now really boring looking office into a creative room full of color and amazing designs (my personal interior design mission), which I can’t wait to do. And of course I’m so looking forward to our planned vacations. In three weeks I think my parents and I will fly to Manchester and travel to Liverpool and Blackpool – actually my parents are flying there to go and watch a golf tournament, so I basically just told them that I would attach myself to them and then stroll around the city while they will be watching a ball roll into a hole (notice my excitement about golf). And in August mum and me will be traveling to Paris, one trip I’ve been looking forward to since we decided on flying there and seriously, I CAN’T WAIT. I have the slight feeling that I will overly fall in love with Paris and never want to leave it again. Sounds pretty much like me, doesn’t it? So yeah, happy days are coming.

.

What else happened? Oh yeah, as mentioned before, I went to two concerts – Paramore and The 1975 – which I will be telling you about on Friday. Just to give you a little foretaste, Paramore blew me away. Seriously. One of the best concerts I’ve ever attended. But more on Friday. Oh and Fall Out Boy brought out a new single called “Champion” which isn’t just completely amazing, but also basically helped me through all the study sessions and times when I just wanted to burn all of my books and laugh like a crazy evil woman while doing so. So, if you ever loose faith in yourself, I can just recommend that you give this one a listen, it really helps.

.

.

Musicwise, two of my favorite bands released their new albums – the german band Kraftklub and Imagine Dragons. Both albums are absolutely stunning and turned me into a much bigger fan than I was before, so props to them. I can’t wait to see them live. Oh and oh my god, Ed released the new tour dates for his stadium tour next year and guess what? He’s really coming here, to my city, to Vienna. Edward freaking Christopher freaking Sheeran, the musical love of my life, is seriously having a show here. The tickets are going on sale this Saturday and I’m already at the edge of my seat and also nerves. Please guys pray for me that I will get tickets. Because if I don’t I will certainly go and have a crazy sort of breakdown and nobody wants that, right?

.

Hmmmmmm, what else? I think that’s pretty much it. I guess. So, as you can see, quite a lot happened and I’m more than excited to be back. I really really missed you and this blog. It is true, you notice how much you love something/someone the time it’s away. And I really hope you are as happy as I am and that you enjoyed this post. Here’s to more. Oh and I hope you’re all doing well and I wish you an amazing week. And, as always, don’t hesitate to talk to me and thanks for reading. x

Bye for now

Hola everyone.


I hope you had a great start of the week. I just wanted to inform you that I’ll be going on a short hiatus from blogging so I can completely focus on my exams and the end of this semester. As you know, I really want to study in London after my bachelor and in order to able to do that I have to bring home some good grades, so until the 2nd of July, uni will be my priority. I’m really sorry to let you down, but I hope you can understand.

.

But just to give you and also myself a little something to look forward to, I’ll be back in exactly two weeks with stories about not only one, but two concerts – Paramore and The 1975 (maybe I’ll split them into two posts). The concerts will be my end-of-semester celebration, I’m more than excited and so looking forward to them.

.

Anyways, I hope you’re not too disappointed and I already can’t wait to be back in two weeks. Thanks for your understanding, I really appreciate it. You’re awesome. And until then I wish you an amazing time and good luck with your exams, if you like me still have to get past them. We can do it. And, as always, thanks for reading. x

Being a fangirl

Hola everyone.


Today I want to talk about a topic that really means a lot to me. And that possibly some of you can relate to. Which is being a fangirl or like I would say it, being completely obsessed with a band or a musician.

.

So, I recently talked my friend about this because I watched a three hour long live stream of Marin Garrix show at the Amsterdam Dance Event (ADE). And you can probably already tell by now that I completely freaked out. It was 4 am and I was jumping around in front of my TV, smiling from one ear to the other with Peaches and Molly sleeping behind me on the couch. They probably thought I was completely crazy. And I sometimes caught myself thinking that too, but you know, who cares? I had such a blast and it was so freaking amazing.

.

And here comes the important part. Of course I had to tell my friend all about that and I sent her about 150 messages that night because I was so excited and I just had to share my excitement. We talked about it the next day and I had the feeling that I was annoying. And then she told me that she kind of stopped being a fangirl. And I was shocked. Because she was once obsessed with bands and music like me. But somehow that changed.

.

She said things like dreaming and living in a real world and so on. And then I started thinking. Because I am a huge fangirl, but I never thought that I lived in a fake, dreamy world. I mean, dreaming makes the world so much better, but that doesn’t mean that you forget about the real world.

.

Since starting to be a fangirl I’ve always been confronted with this typical idea that people had of fangirls and moreover of me because I was and am one. According to them, fangirls are young, dreamy girls that scream about everything a band or a musician does and want to marry them. They live in a fake world that they have to grow out of. Until then they are just some weird girls being obsessed over people they’ll never meet.

.

This idea might fit for 12 year old girls, maybe not even then. And I want to use this post to spread a new idea of what a fangirl truly is. Because I am a fangirl and I’m nothing of the above. I noticed that when I talked to my friend. And I wrote a list of my favorite bands and musicians:

  • Conor Maynard
  • Fall Out Boy
  • Two Door Cinema Club
  • Panic! At The Disco
  • The 1975
  • Twenty One Pilots
  • Martin Garrix
  • Ed Sheeran

.

Apart from Conor and Martijn, there are no guys out there I can fall in love with. Maybe Ed too, his voice is just too angelic. But the point I want to get to is that when I started being a fangirl I was this little crazy girl who dreamt about marrying some guy (okay, it was Justin, hey hey) but I grew up and I am still this crazy girl, but today I am crazy about the music. I still stalk the bands online. I still fly over to concerts in different countries. I still go to concerts wayyyy to early just to get a good view. I still scream when I see them. I still cry when the bands finally get on stage and I get to see them. I still have them as my lock screen on my phone, depending on which one I love most right now. I still buy the albums. And I still think about them all the time. They are my world. Always were, always will be.

.

So nothing changed. Except that I grew up. You know, whenever people notice how crazy you are about some certain bands or musicians, they look at you like you’ve just completely lost your mind. But that’s not how it is. I’m a fan. And I’m a girl. So I am a FAN-GIRL. I’m not 12, I don’t dream about stupid unreal scenarios and I’m not crazy. I just show how much I love music and the people who bring it into my life. And that’s it. That’s what being a fangirl nowadays means.

.

So, there you go. I know, this is kind of a rant about the general view of fangirls, but I just had to get it out there. Even my mum is a fangirl still and Coldplay, the band we flew over to Copenhagen just to see them, is the reason for this. And I hope I’ll once fly to concerts with my children when I’m older. And I really really really hope that my children will fall as hard in love with music as I did. Because it brought so much happiness into my life that I can’t even describe it. Seriously.

.

As this is a really important part of my life, I’d be really happy to receive some messages from you guys. So feel free to talk to me, I’m here. I really hope that you enjoyed this post, it really means a lot to me. And as always, thank you so much for reading. x

Music of the month

Hola everyone.


I know it’s early for a music of the month list, but hey, there can never be enough lists about music, right? I have to say that my current taste in music and my favorite songs are especially influenced by all the new upcoming albums of some of my favorite bands. And of course they all thought “why not release some singles first and basically bless all the ears on this planet???”. Thanks guys.

.

Anyways, all this songs are freaking amazing and I love them and some have a special meaning to me and some are just a blessing. But all of them are perfect. Enjoy.

.

  • OneRepublic – Kids (such an amazing song, perfect to sing to – link: youtube.com)
  • Kings Of Leon – Waste A Moment (I couldn’t be any more excited for their new album – link: youtube.com)
  • Conor Maynard – Close (another cover, but it’s freaking breathtaking – link: youtube.com)
  • DJ Snake ft. Justin Bieber – Let Me Love You (I love singing this one and it reminds me of Reading, because I hear it in a shop there – link: youtube.com)
  • Twenty One Pilots – Heathens (that doesn’t really surprise anyone, right? – link: youtube.com)
  • Panic! At The Disco – Death Of A Bachelor (this song and Brendon’s voice are a blessing – link: youtube.com)
  • Kings Of Leon – Supersoaker (I know, another KOL song, but I just can’t help it – link: youtube.com)
  • Basically any Fall Out Boy song, for real
  • Foals – My Number (this is my official Reading hymn, so I can’t listen to it, but I still have it in my head and I love it and it just makes you want to DANCE – link: youtube.com)
  • The 1975 – Somebody Else (when I think about their set at Reading, I think about this one immediately – link: youtube.com)
  • Two Door Cinema Club – Sleep Alone (god, I love this song so much, it is such a tune live – and on CD too, ofc – link: youtube.com)
  • Banners – Ghosts (his voice is so smooth and just pure heaven – link: youtube.com)
  • Martin Garrix ft. Bebe Rexha – In The Name Of Love (I actually listened to it again for the first time today after hearing it live two months ago, still getting all emotional and happy, god I wish I could see Martin every week – link: youtube.com)

.

Soooo, here you go. Here are my current favorite songs and yes, I’m in love with every single one of them. If any of you have the same taste in music as me, feel free to chat with me, for real. I’d love to talk. And until then, I hope you enjoyed this post and list and, as always, thanks for reading. x

The 1975

Hola everyone.


Soooooo, it finally happened. I finally saw The 1975 again after 3 years and seriously, I couldn’t be happier. Really. I don’t even know what to say or where to start. I’m just sooo happy, I still have a bright smile on my lips and my voice still hasn’t recovered completely. That shows how amazing it was.

.

Anyway, I think it would be best to start with the history I share with this extremely special band. Three years ago I went to my first real concert, the Two Door Cinema Club concert I already told you about. The funny thing is that I didn’t know much about music at that point, my knowledge began and ended with Justin Bieber. So I had no idea who the support acts of TDCC were. And guess what? It was The 1975. And even better, when I first heard their music, I didn’t like it all. Like for real. I thought that the second support act, Dog Is Dead, was better. And when the concert was over, the two bands got in the main area so that people could talk to them. And being the crazy girl not knowing anything in music, I just walked past Matty and went over to the other band to talk to them. How crazy is that? I mean, I could have taken a picture with the whole band, talked to Matty and whatelse. But nope, not with me.

.

Actually, I laugh about it now. The band I didn’t like three years ago is now one of my most favourite bands and the singer who I thought was REALLY weird because he was half naked and smoked on stage is now one of those guys I tell other people about that they have the most amazing voices ever. It’s just crazy. So crazy and unbelieveable.

.

Soooo, the concert. It was uuuuunbelieveable, really. First of all I need to say that I’ve never seen someone who is like Matty, seriously. He literally LIVES the music and his band. And he smokes and drinks wine out of a glass while singing, how crazy is that? And he acts like a model on the runway, doing one pose after another, with that typical model expression on his face. Besides that his voice is extraordinary amazing. I really love his voice. And they are all so good live, it’s breathtaking.

.

Thank god my friend Hannah and me got there early, especially Hannah who waited outside for over an hour. Now we had amazing places really close to the stage. The crowd went crazy when they finally got on stage and the beat of Love Me started playing. I felt like I was in heaven. But the most amazing moment was when I heard the music of Robbers and got goosebumps everywhere. I nearly started crying while screaming the lyrics of this song. And of course the last moment when they played Sex and everyone was going completely crazy and was screaming out the lyrics. It felt like we were in another world, our small world full of happiness, far too hot weather and amazing music. And oh my god, their stage was sooooooo beautiful. It was pure aesthetics. The colors and the lightening and everything, it was so amazing. Hannah and me were starstruck.

.

Overall I’m soooooo damn happy that I went to their concert and it couldn’t have been any better, really. I loved every single moment of it. And I can’t wait to see them again in summer when my mum and me will hopefully fly to England to go to Reading festival.

.

If any of you visited one of their concerts or love the band as much as me, I’d be happy to talk to you and exchange memories and fangirl moments. And until then, as always, thanks for reading. x
