Recent must-haves this spring.
American Teen, Khalid
There was point in time where this album was ALL I played. I would list my favorite songs but I would just end up listing the whole album. Khalid has absolutely killed me with his voice
Pair Acne Cream
I have my best friend to thank for introducing me to this product. I don’t actually have acne but had a few pretty bad pimple scars in around March that are now practically gone thanks to this. This stuff gets rid of pimples completely in a day or two and fades pimple/acne scars perfectly. It’s also so affordable and lightweight.
Hey! So this Saturday me and Jo went out to Tenjin and basically window shopped, ate kebab and looked for art supplies (IB HL art life), a pretty typical Sar and Jo outing and nothing special but I thought I’d upload some of the pictures we took. I think I’m gonna do this more often too cause I know I’ll thank myself after I leave Japan that I took all of these photo’s and captured all of these memories hehe. This is pretty much an average day in my life with my best friend, take a closer look into my life and see some more of Fukuoka. Leggo
I traveled alone for the first time when I was around 8 or 9, since then I’ve done it over 20 times, and for only around half of them was I an ‘unaccompanied minor’ which means that you have someone take you around the airport to wherever you have to go and to look after you on the plane and so on. The other half I had gained my parents trust and had to get around by my self. This was always super exiting to me because I’ve always been a very independent person and love feeling responsible and grown up (even now) hahaha. Without bragging I do like to think that I’m quite a pro at travelling and airports.
…Now contradicting to what I just said about me being responsible and a pro I’m going to give you the back story about how I missed my flight a few weeks ago and now owe my parents 500 euro. Rip.
Hey Guys! This post is pretty insignificant and doesn’t really have a purpose other than to just let you guys know what’s been up, where I’ve been and so on…
So today I pretty much caught up on all of the school work I didn’t do enough of this summer and chilled a bit. I can’t really say that it was a good day because I’ve actually felt quite shitty since lunch time or something… idk the universe is testing me or something hahaha, I just had absolutely no motivation to do anything and wasn’t very productive (I didn’t leave the house once).
The worst part/another reason why I’m writing this post is because about an hour ago when I opened by blog with the intention to write my long overdue Italy posts I realised that all of my photo’s were deleted from my posts and couldn’t be restored. As you can imagine that’s really not something I needed to add on to my bad day and freaking sucked. I really do put a lot of effort into my posts and pictures and actually contemplated deactivating my entire blog for a while hahah. Either way I sucked it up and did my best to re-upload all of the pictures that were deleted… I didn’t manage for all of them though so I also deleted quite a few of my previous posts *cries*. That also explains why some of the posts may look a bit different and slightly worse done… It’s because I had to redo them, I’m sorry. Because of this I’ll also need you guys to bare with me with the rest of my posts (I have a lot planned) because they may take a while.
I’ve also almost used up the free 3 gb of data you’re given on WordPress for free and since I now know you can’t delete photo’s from there without also deleting them from your posts… and I’m too broke to pay for an upgrade (I’m 500 euro in debt but that’s a story for another time) I have no idea what I’m going to do when I use it all up *cries some more*
On a slightly less negative note, I got back from Europe on the 17th (2 days ago) and since then I’ve pretty much just been chilling and preparing for school which starts on the 23rd (god save me please). I’m not jet lagged at all though so that’s good 🙂
Yesterday I also randomly decided to cut my own hair a lot shorter. So in just one month my hair has gone from my belly button, to just on top of my boobs (which I kept for a week even though I loved it), and now a lot shorter to my shoulders… very daring and slightly stupid because I’m pretty sure I didn’t cut it very evenly hahaha #reckless. I like it though, it’s very different for me because I’ve pretty much always had long hair but it’s something different and change is always good so let’s just see how I like it in a few weeks (not that I can do anything about it then either lol)
I’m also starting IB very soon so that’s also pretty scary and I’m not really sure how ready I am hahah. I’m most nervous for Japanese which fucks me over every time tbh :’). My HL’s (Higher Level Subjects) are Art, History and English in case you were wondering.
I still have A LOT of posts coming and probably even a video from my Sweden trip so stay tuned for that…
On our last full day in the City my dad and I went to the Highline and it was freaking amazing. The morning light on top of the classic houses, street and wall art, joggers, and just the uniqueness and authenticity of the park in general was just perfect. We rewarded ourselves with a classic american breakfast in the most stereotypical diner ever afterward. It was seriously like reenacting pulp fiction or any Woody Allen movie haha.
My second day in New York was spent shopping and walking around Soho, getting burnt at the top of a open-roof bus, skimming through books in a vintage store and seeing the statue of Liberty, this was one of my favourite days without a doubt.
I’m really overdue writing this because I actually got back from New York this morning (yes, the jet lag is pretty intense) but I couldn’t go to the city of my dreams and not blog it. So, here’s how I spent my first day and the morning after in The Big Apple. I also tried something a little new with my pictures. Enjoy!
Exactly 4 days left until the long awaited summer break. We’re at that phase where grades have been submitted, we’re done with finals, and are either watching movies or playing games in class… or talking about IB next year and getting assigned summer homework (but lets focus on the positive…). I can literally feel, taste and smell summer break and am so excited.
My last weekend of Sophomore year was spent naked in bathtubs covered in paint and glitter. Not as crazy at it sounds I swear hahah. Joela is working on one of her projects for next year and used me as one of the subjects of her art. Despite the mess, it was actually so much fun and turned out pretty cool. Pictures below.
I want to travel
But I don’t think anyone understands
I want to wander at four in the morning, through the streets of Moscow
I want to wake up on a roof,
In the middle of New Delhi
Stand on a balcony and sip tea, without clothes, on top of Sweden
Roam through a bazaar in Istanbul
Cry because I am free, beneath Germany
Kiss an elder on her cheeks in Czech
Smoke a cigarette while laying in the tub in the Alps
Read a book in a small cafe around Portugal
Swim through the reefs of New Zealand
Wash my hair in a hostel of England
Dance with the laughing people of Africa
Feed sushi to another in Tokyo
I want to make love to you,
Deep within Spain
I want to travel
Would you consider your self a confident person? To me, that’s a very difficult question, and would have a very mixed yes-no answer. Some days, I am the exact opposite, some days, I am, and most days, I’m somewhere in the middle. I know I’m not alone in this and so I’m writing this post to my self as well as one to every one out there facing the same things. Enjoy, and remember, confidence is key.
