We Used To Be Friends.

Hello my friends,

I’m such bad blogger lately. But I still have hope to get better…

Today I’m full of power and joy. I went to the cinema with my best friend. We watched the Veronica Mars Movie, which made me freak out… I don’t know if you know the series, but it was my favourite (before Sherlock existed) and it ended “not so great”. A lot of fans hated it and begged for the movie… after years WB and the makers finally agreed to make a movie, but the fans had to finance the whole thing. So Rob Thomas, the maker, started a kickstarter project and the fans spend over 5 million USD…. which are 3 million more than they had asked for. I still can’t believe all this really happend and I’m so proud to be a part of this fandom! Well, yeah… what was I about to say? I guess, I only wanted to let you know how much I love Veronica Mars and that I’m pretty happy thanks to her and the great, great movie!

Okay, back to the things I wanted to write about two weeks ago.

Fall Out Boy was insane, because they reminded me of my whole teenager time and I’ve lots of memories about every song. It just was like time traveling and being as emotinal as I am right now. We stand in front of Pete Wentz, who had such an huge impacted on who I am now… I am grateful to have seen my those people who just helped me growing up.
They are also grown as a live act since I saw them in 2007. They really got better and I’m very happy about that and I can’t wait to see them again one day.

I also wanted to tell you why I’m going to stay here longer.
Well, there are a couple of reasons.

  1. I earn more money next year… that sounds so bad to write, but it’s easier to move with a little bit money in the back of you pocket.
  2. I’ll get some working experience, which will help me finding a new job later.
  3. I can help my mom, if she’ll really move houses.
  4. I don’t have to leave my pets behind (that’s, to be honest, one of the main reasons… I can’t imagine a life without them).
  5. I still can travel and maybe I’ll finally make it to Barcelona, which would be amazing.

Those were my main reasons… so I’m excited about whatever will happen in the next few months.

See you soon,

x Frankie

PS: Barça just won against Real Madrid, so I’m even more happy than at the beginning of this blog post. (I didn’t write during the match… maybe the text isn’t that great… I just wrote before the match, during the half-time and after the match… )
I hope, you had a great day as well. I wish you a great week.

I made a decision! | Life Update

Hello there.

After a few of months of uncertainty, I finally made a decision! I really felt bad those months and I was thinking too much… but I made a compromise, which should work very well. At least I hope so.

You guys know that I want to go to a foreign counrty to live there at least for one year… and I thought I’d do this next summer. But my boss asked me, if I’d like to stay there for another year, so I’d make some working experience and earn some money before I leave… well and after that question I thought about it a bloody lot! I thought I wouldn’t leave this place, if I’d say yes to stay here for another year….

But on the other hand I’ll still be young next year. And why shouldn’t I go next year? And it’d great to save some money before I leave…

So, after the last months being unhappy with myself, I’m going to be fine now.

I made the decision to stay here. With my family, pets & friends. At my job.
And then I’ll go to away.

Thank you very much for sticking around.

I’ll tell you more about my decision in the next post, but first of all I just wanted to tell you.
I’d also love to share my thoughts about my very first concert and the last one I’ve been to. Yes, those were my tickets…

See you sooner now,

I Want.

Hello my dear readers.

I read many, many New Year Resolutions of other bloggers. It seems like everyone wants to change their lifes, at least a little bit. Well, so now I should tell you about resolutions, but I don’t have any this year. I like the idea of resolutions, but I couldn’t find myself making some. This year I’ll start without any resolutions.

New Year Resolutions are (somehow) goals you have for the new year and I don’t have mine for this year, but I’ve goals for my life. A few months ago I felt down and I wanted things to look forward to. I thought about it and wrote a list about ten things I want to do. I am going to show this list instead of my New Year Resolutions. I guess some of those things going to take a long time, others will be just a short moment, some I’ll make soon, others have to wait for years. But one day I’ll do all of those things.

Here, we go:

  1. Travel to New Zealand
  2. Being at El Classico in Camp Nou
  3. Live in a foreign country
  4. Visit another Fall Out Boy Concert (I’ve already got the ticket ^_^)
  5. Work on a movie or theater
  6. Celebration my birthday in New York City
  7. Buy myself a MacBook
  8. Travel through a country with a bike
  9. Learn Spanish and French
  10. Read “The Lord Of The Rings”

Mh, okay… while I wrote this down, my mind reminded me on something. There is one thing I really wish for this year.
2014 I want to grow as a person (as each year). I want to find myself. At the end of the year I want to know who I am and what I want from life. I want to have, at least, a idea of the next two years and a Plan A for 2015. That sounds huge and it is… but lately I felt lost and planless, so I can’t wait to have an idea of my future.
Right now I’m stucked, but anyhow I’ve to go on. Seven months. In seven months I’ll be a nursery nurse with experience. I can’t wait for that day. But until that day, it’s still time for a lot of work, more work, a bit life and much more work ahead. Yes, I’ll stay very, very busy for another seven months.

I’d like to know what your New Years Resolutions are?

See you soon,

Soon to come. My London posts. 🙂

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

PS: Happy 3rd Advent.

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?
