The greatest peace I’ve ever known.

Dear readers.

Last Friday I was at Patrick Wolf’s Concert. It was the best time of the year.

I love Patrick Wolf.

Because he writes perfect lyrics. If I’ll ever get a tattoo, it’d be a part of the song Lycanthropy. But there are so many more great lyrics. Lately I cried to House, because I’ve to move and I loved my home… and it just makes me sad.
Well, but on the otherside his songs make me happy. They show me that I am not alone. The lyrics help me to explain my own feelings and give me courage to be the person I want to be. And I’m thankful for that.

“Let no foot, mark your ground Let no hand, hold you down.”
– Patrick Wolf –

Because of his beautiful voice. This voice reminds me of something better… that there’s still something great to come. His whole music has a very unique – in a positive way – sound. When people ask me what kind of music he makes, I never know what to say. He’s music is just different from all the other artists I’ve ever heard.

Because he has the best wolfpack in the world. When I go to a concert of this gorgeous man I feel like I am going to a huge meeting with a lot of friends. It’s always a great atmosphere and everyone is very kind.
They also make amazing projects like the Happy Birthday video for Patrick’s 30th birthday. Or they send christmas cards to each other.

Because his personality is kind, honest and great. He makes me laugh about jokes. On stage he dances like he’s home alone. He enjoys every second while he’s performing. I love that. And then there’s his style – colourful, glittering. It’s awesome how he wears the things he likes and he always seems self-conscious with his style.

Because at his concerts I can be myself, happy and forget the whole world for a while.
And then there’s his violinist, Victoria Sutherland. She plays at his concerts (and records) since years. The wolfpack loves her almost as much as Patrick himself. She’s lovely.

There are many more reasons to love him. I’d love reasons why you love him. Or who do you love and why?

Love,

Frankie

Everything Comes To An End.

Hello readers.

Happy second Advent ♥

I’ve been sick this week and I still feel a little bit exhausted.
But it get’s better, finally.
Now this weekend feels unbelieveable short and I hear the clocks are ticking.
Everything is coming to an end.
This sickness. This weekend. And finally this year.

I’ve been sick for a couple of days.
I worked as long as possible, but on Wednesday I was too exhausted to go to work.
I went to an doctor, who gave me some pills and he told me I’ve to stay at home for the rest of the week.
So I stayed at home. I slept a lot.
I finished reading Me Before You by Jojo Moyes. Laugh a little about it and cried at the end.
Than I decided that I need more books by this brilliant author and I revise my christmas wish list.
I also watched a few movies, Heartbeats, Laurence Anyways and Love and other Drugs.
And that’s just it. That’s all I’ve done in the days since Wednesday.

Ends- 01

So this weekend seemed very short.
I didn’t do much. I was at home and I went for a few little walks with my dogs.
The weather was rainy and I’m glad I hadn’t to go for huge walks.

Well, and this year was… changing!
I left school. Maybe for forever.
I started working in a job, I don’t enjoy half as much as I wish I’d.
I made plans for the upcoming year.
I was on a two weeks holiday in Sweden. (You can read here about it)
I saw my favourite german band – Die Toten Hosen.
I build up friendships. I let friendships faid away.
I enjoyed life.
I hated life more than ever.
That’s what my 2013 was about.

Well, I want to be a happy person!
Right now I’m unfortunately not that person, because I struggle with a few things.
But I’ll change those things in 2014.
In the end life is short and I don’t want to waste it.
I want to enjoy life as much as possible.
That sounds cheesy or selfish, but when you think about it, I guess, you’ll enjoy your life as much as possible, too.
Life is too short to regret something.
So be brave and do the things you enjoy and take risk to get where you want to be.
I’m working on being brave. And I’ll start to take more risks in the future.
Everything needs time, but I don’t want to waste too much of it, anymore.

What is important to your life? What would you like to do? What risks would you take for your dreams?

I’m Looking Forward To See You.

Hello lovely readers.

Happy first Advent to you. I lighted up the first candle of Advent and opend the first door of my Advent Calendar.
Christmas will be sooon! And 2014 will be soon, too.

I have a lof of great things coming up.

In 12 days I’m going to see Patrick Wolf !
I count the days since months and it’s so great to see that it’s finally less than two weeks.
I really love Mr. Wolf since the first time my ears heard his great music, which always helps me through life.
His lyrics are brilliant.
But don’t ask me about the genre. I can’t describe his music at all. Just listen to a few of his songs, please.
And if you have the chance to see him live, go! He’s a great, great, great live performer.
Sooo, I’m looking forward to see him on stage for the third time 🙂

December - 01

I am also looking forward to visit my favourite city. London.
26 days until my best friend, Theresa, and I will be in England for 5 days.
Theresa has never been in London and wants to see all the classic sightseeing things.
And I want to see Les Misérables at the West End.
We still make plans what we’re going to do, so if you know what we have to do, let me know.
Of course I’ll tell you everything about this journey in January.

December - 03

I’ve already a few plans for 2014.
And I’m pretty sure it will be great!
I’m going to make a new post about the new year on my holidays.

I’d like to know what are you looking forward to?
