I'd like

I'd like to be a great writer, and write about the things I love. Like Ewan McEwan. I'd like to be a great musician, and play music about life. Just like Leonard Cohen. I'd like to be a real Parisian, and be an elegant cool cat. Like Audrey Tautou. I'd like to be a great painter, and paint the world in a surreal way. Like Marc Chagall, he's been my favourite painter since I was a little girl. The colours he uses, the way he sees the world is just beautiful to me. It's really inspiring.

First day of spring!

It's the moment i've been waiting for: the first day of spring. This was an amazing day, the sun was shining, you could tell people were happier. I definitely felt very cheerful. First, i went to the gym with my friend Ilja. That was lovely. It may sound weird, but i enjoy going to the gym alot. Especially afterwards, at times it feels like going through hell though. After that we had lunch and sat in de sun. Sitting by the water, just enjoying the sunshine and having fun.
Oh, and i'm going to Paris again with Julien, in May! I couldn't be more excited. I love that city, i love my friends there. Life is good, school is good, everything is good. One thing i miss, is reading. I really need to read more books, but I don't make time for it. I will, I want to read Catcher In The Rye. And I want a diana F+.
But most of all, i want the sun to keep on shining, please.

Spring A Ling

YES. I can feel it in the air. The sun is shining consistantly and that makes me happy. I'm making loads of pictures again, I feel like I can do anything.
I went to see Girls at paradiso on sunday, I expected so much of them but they kind of dissapointed me. I still like them, alot, but it wasn't very spectacular. I could even say they were a bit dull. I'm spending this week at a house in De Jordaan though, Julien's watching over a house and a cat of his mum's friend. The location is perfect.


Beach House playing Paradiso on February 23rd. They were amazing.

Paris, Je T'aime.

Ok, what I was saying before, so very true. Wow, what an inspiration that city is. I keep on discovering that over and over again. The weather was great too, I got to know new people who were really nice and i bought a really cool book. Facehunters' made a book, the styleblogger. It's so inspirational! Wouldn't that be the greatest job ever? Just travel all over the world, look around and talk to beautiful, interesting people and translate that to pictures. But Paris. I feel so much at home there, like I was born to live there. Only thing is that i don't speak french very great. Small downside, haha. It was especially great to see my dear friends again at woodhaven. I really admire all of them, i kind of envy them at times. Standing on their own feet living the life that seems hard, but free. I know i have absolutely nothing to complain about, but still I feel like that is the kind of life i would like to live soon. I've been thinking about this for over a year now, and i seriously consider moving there for a year, in about a year. What's holding me back? Nothing actually. Not what school's concerned. I can take one, or a hundred years off and then go back to second year. I mean, i'm still so young! And there are people who are sixty attending my school. I'm just saying. Only thing is that i would want to take Julien with me. That would be the best. But one thing at a time, i seem to race into time and wanting to manage everything at the same time. First just finish first year of college, have fun and then see. Pictures will be up soon!

This is out of Facehunter's book. Amazing.
