Lazy days

School year's over, i can do, and don't do whatever i like right now. At the moment it consists out of watching Dexter. It's quite addictive I must say. But most of all: lots of parks, concerts, movies, and trips I can look forward to. And De Parade, can't wait! It seems to be a promising summer.

Memory House

This must be the loveliest band ever. I can listen to this for ages. Ofcourse Julien discovered this first, I'm glad that he did. It's such dreamy, pretty music, it makes me feel like lying on the grass with my eyes closed.

Bonfire. My new fall a sleep song.

Teen Dream

On wednesday Julien and I went to see Beach House at paradiso again. They were playing together with a Belgian band called 'Isbells'. It was sweet music, but a bit dull to be honest. A bit weepy, and sensitive in an annoying way. Anyway, Beach House: they made a move forward; they were playing downstairs this time, after playing upstairs three times.
I liked it alot. Didn't like it as much as i did last time though, it was more intense then. The lighting was way better, so I was a happy photographer.

What I was most happy about is that they played every single song I want them to. Even from their first album.
It was a good night, and i hope to see more of them soon. Maybe somewhere else than Paradiso next time.

Lovely Paris

Came back from Paris on sunday. Haven't had much time to be on here, didn't really feel like it either. Since I came back i've been feeling kind of weird. I didn't want to leave there, I guess it feels like a second home now. It was a lovely trip yet again, the weather was lovely and me and Julien got to see all of our friends. We stayed at our friend Dan's place, we didn't get to see him much though because he had to work the entire weekend. But we'll get to see more of him when we're back there in August!
First day we sat by the Seine all evening, with a bottle of wine and some food, and watched the sunset and all the tourist boats coming by. We also met a Finnish guy named Veikko, who is the funniest guy you'll be most likely to meer. I really like meeting people from all over the world, it's so interesting. We spent about every day with him, and ofcourse with Anna and Amanda. Went to a beautiful park on friday, 'Bois Des Vincennes'. It was a massive park, and ofcourse we walked into the wrong direction towards our friends, so we had to walk through the whole park to reach them.
On saturday we visited an exhibition in Palais De Tokyo, which was a ridiculous one. I like art, but this didn't make sense whatsoever. A bit too farfetched in my opinion. Me and Anna made really nice photos in that photobooth they have there, I love that. I kind of collect those photos now, I've got tons. Anyway, we went for a lovely dinner and Tom and his friend George afterwards DJed there. That was our last night, and it was a great one. All of us got way too drunk and had a nice time dancing to Tom and George's tunes.
Conclusion: It was a lovely weekend and I can't wait to go back to that amazing city with it's amazing people.

Now it's back to reality: finish my last assignments at school. Deadline's on tuesday, gonna work my butt of until then, after that, summer can begin and the money can roll in.

Sweet and tender hooligan

He was a sweet and tender hooligan, hooligan
And he said that he'd never, never do it again
And of course he won't (oh, not until the next time

Poor old man
He had an "accident" with a three-by-five
But that's OK
Because he wasn't very happy anyway
Poor woman
Strangled in her very own bed as she read
But that's OK
Because she was old and she would have died anyway

Jury, you've heard every word
So before you decide
Would you look into those "Mother me" eyes
I love you for you, my love, you my love
You my love, you my love
Jury, you've heard every word
But before you decide
Would you look into those "Mother me" eyes
I love you for you my love, you my love
I love you just for you, my love
Don't blame

Summer (in the city)

Wat een ongelooflijk heerlijke dag was het vandaag, niks anders gedaan dan genieten in de zon, met het fijnste gezelschap. Dit soort dagen herinneren me eraan dat alle narigheid totaal niet belangrijk is, al het pretentieuze gelul hang ik lekker in de boom. En er niet meer naar omkijken.

Gister was ook al zo fijn, in het park gezeten met fijne mensen en fijne wijn, daarna met Jule naar De wereld draait door geweest, daarna buiten wat gegeten met z'n tweeen. (Buiten! 'S avonds! Het is zover!) Daar kan ik erg blij van worden kan ik je zeggen, van die voorproefjes op de zomer. De parade komt er ook weer aan, Den haag en Amsterdam dit jaar, ik heb er nu al zin in. En Parijs, twee keer sowieso om naar uit te kijken! Langs de seine zitten, naar pop in, truskel en alle andere leuke barren en cafeetjes, samen met m'n lief en ons clubje. Ik laat m'n haar weer lang groeien en ga nog even hard aan school. Daar doe ik het allemaal voor!

I made some plans. Vague plans, but they're plans. I want to save up for a trip around the world, fly to Australia, to Fiji, Tokyo, Hong Kong, San Francisco and then New York. It's gonna take forever to realize this, but I really want to do it. It seems like such a dream, just flying around the world and seeing everything, total freedom. I also think i'm not mature whatsoever, it would be a great thing for me to do. I'll learn French in the meantime, finish school. I'm really sick of Amsterdam to be honest, I love my city, I do, but it's a village. I want to see more, lots more. I've never travelled outside of Europe.

I also want to save up for a little tattoo on the inside of my wrist. A small, small one. People tend to make such a big deal of tattoos though. Man, it's only a small little drawing on your body. To me it's just a mark of how I feel right now. I feel good, i'm happy. I don't know what I want yet, I'll have a looooooong think about it.
Right now I will continue this easter sunday afternoon, just reading and lazing about. Duty calls tomorrow.
