progress is progress

Hello dear blog readers~
Big news for November! It took ages and a lot of patience (/nerves) but finally I could pick up my diploma! They handed out a 'basic' English version too... what a pity the grades aren't translated though. Nor the actual subject is. Is 'Asienwissenschaften' not the same as 'asian studies'? Really?


I was a bit upset about my 'plain' grade and 'only' getting 1,8 on my thesis because one of my professors obviously didn't like my work that much but ahh... can't be bothered now haha. Especially since doing Chinese class was my personal hell. And I remember that I started University thinking 'I can still quit halfway through!' and 'I have to get just through it quickly & I will be free again!' haha. And now I am! I am done! Finally! I am really happy but I have not found the right way to express this happiness yet... probably because of some - right now still minor - concerns about the future. But let's not ruin the present with that right now.

The day I picked my diploma up at the University I also got my iPod replaced at the Apple Store (two days ago, the home button was broken) and ran a lot of other errands, still feel like I am not really done with everything and getting to excited about my the upcoming months! So that day I also met two of my friends and with one I was having my time off, feeling so comfortable first chilling at a nice café where I had a sugarfree chai latte and then having dinner and beer~

We actually shared a menu that was meant to be for one person

Also I painted my nails with gradation nail polish I got in Tokyo (actually I got it for my mom but she rarely uses it because she has gel nails haha). I really like how soft the colours are! But it's too 'adult' for me actually haha.


Yes, that's all for now. Resting a few days now before I get down to serious business as in writing job applications and that kind of stuff. Ohh, we will see. I promise some prettier posts in the future, once I have something good to tell haha!
Take care and try to not get sick now that it's getting colder, dear readers~

& the 'free' wig

Yay, new blogpost!
Just a short update but since I have nothing much to do anyway haha.
I got a coupon from PayPal for eBay and decided to buy just something really random I always wanted but couldn't really afford. A wig!

I always wanted to have this kind of style with curls so I don't have to curl my own hair (that takes ages and the curls never last in my real hair). Surprisingly it doesn't look so bad, compared to the first wig I ordered when I was 17 or so (it was pink and the hair was heavy & straight!), I am kind of glad I have a positive experience with a wig ordered online for once.

Some of you might have seen these pictures on FB already but I also have one additional picture of me in glasses for you. Also in case you haven't seen them on FB, I am not really wearing much make-up here (no foundation, just concealer, a hint of eye- and eyebrow liner & mascara), so don't be too shocked haha.
I don't know how to style a wig, I just put it on but I think it didn't look too bad! Hope to wear this on Halloween and other future events with more make-up :D



I really like this wig so much that I am even considering buying another one but on the other hand, man, I don't know, everything over 2$ is a whole lot of money. So I guess I won't. Or I will wait for the next coupon that will come in about 2 years, considering when I got my last coupon.

By the way, I took these pictures with the BeautyPlus app... but I still don't like the kind of pictures the iOS system takes. Why don't they work on making a better camera than on producing stuff like that Apple Watch? Or maybe they want to lose customers, for some reason~

Either way, that's all! Hope you enjoyed that little picture spam and that you're having a nice start into the late summer/autumn season.


PS. Before it slips my mind again and I forget to mention it in the next most... I am really happy so many people are following me even though in the beginning I knew almost no one.
Thank you for reading! If you want me to follow you back, please leave a comment saying so and I will definitely have a look at your blog, too

nails & dreams (+ sale promotion)

Hello dear readers!
Sorry for the long absence. It's September now, getting colder, but I am also getting closer to my goal because now I have finished my thesis and handed it in and I feel like a major burden letting go of me. 

this one sugarfree drink helped me through the last pages~
(one shot booster! omg I have to post this because it's yu-gi-oh 5Ds related haha)

Though, I am still a bit nervous about the result and I feel like I can only 'let go' myself once I have passed. But soooo much disciple was necessary for me to pursue this one goal. You can't imagine what kind of fight with myself this was. Sometimes I felt like giving up and running away but I felt like I gave a promise to myself that I couldn't possibly break. Some things always reminded me that I am working for something that is worth it and that will bring me somewhere in life. I am talking like it's such a big business but I am not even sure if I passed yet... but since I already moved out of my apartment, I might as well show you what kept me going because I saw it on my way to university for the past 2 1/2 years. It's weird that it's on my bus route to University... in the first semester I lived somewhere else so I did not see this. But when I saw this every morning, I thought it had to be destiny. God, I am theatrical haha.


I don't care if this makes me look silly. Everyone needs something to keep them going, right? And it took me a while to notice him from the bus window actually but eventually I found myself looking for him every morning. I don't like original Yu-Gi-Oh that much but it made me thing of 5Ds (spin-off) so much. If you know a bit about the anime, you will realize it's about pursuing your dreams. It's about rising from the ashes, from being no one to be someone you want to be.
If you are pursuing a dream, you might like one of my favourite characters, Jack, 'the fallen King' and his wonderful words:

だからこそ自分達の手でやりとけたい!
 That's why I want us to settle it by our own hands!

俺は諦めん俺達の夢を、こんなところで終わらすわけには行かない!
I won't give up! I can't let our dream end at this point!

This is it. This is what I felt like so many times and I felt like I have to get up and get myself through it no matter what. There was no way other than to go forward for me at some point and after all of this is done, I will be sure I can do anything I want. I can achieve anything. 
Even if you don't have money and can't afford to go the path you like, you can always find a way around it to pursue your goal. Maybe it will turn out slightly different from what you imagine on the way but you can reach your goal. Don't let anyone tell you you can't. You wouldn't know how far it pushed me when people said that I can't do something or that something seems unreachable.
Also don't fear time. You will get older but dreams take time. It's the road to happiness that will make you happy if you don't forget what you are fighting for. You will get older, yes, but you will become happy on the way too. Each year you will look behind and realize all the amazing things you have done and achieved. Don't fear change, either. It will all be for the best if you work on it. And even slow success is progress.

Long deep talk. For those of you who have dreams and are unsure about things, I hope maybe this gave you a little hope that you are not alone.
Other than that, I don't have much to tell other than I have already redone my nails twice during the past months, haha. They're simple but I like how long they got!


I love the pastel pink and blue! Wonderful soft, feminine colours. Because I used a substitute for the cleaner, thumb and index finger fell off rather quickly and I had no chance to renew them while in the dorm... such a pity because my real nails were already that long.




I have been out sometimes, too, like yesterday when a friend went to a concert around my area and we had the chance to meet before that. But I forgot to take pictures because I got drunk after one beer haha. Well, I guess that proves I had fun!

Besides I found an older picture (from 2012) that I took when I wanted to sell some things. It was right after I came back from Japan. Look at that body!!


I am 'only' about 6-7 pounds more now but well, not that the exam phase and all the University stress is hopefully over I can get towards a body like that again. I mostly want to get skin like that again D: Which will be rather hard because that was mainly the work of my birth control. Oh but, I will push myself towards healthier eating and the life I want to live~
Also random side note: FB thought from my profile picture that I am Ageha model Airi Misaki (who poked me once without me poking her!! omg! I like her haha). Now if that isn't a start to a healthier/greater self!

That's all for now! Messy post because my dreams are a bit of a mess still~ 

But, if you are interested in Gyaru brand clothes (d.i.a., Gravil/tutuHa, Ghost of Harlem, Taboo, Garula), please have a look at the clothes I am selling! Especially if you live in Germany or Europe! Most are in a very good condition/like new or completely new~

Take care everyone & don't be afraid to dream a little bigger ♡

about badass women & my little hosts

Please dear readers, hit me with something (preferably soft) right now until I go to actually work on my thesis which I planned all along. It's like I have all the info in my head but I haven't properly sorted it and I just don't feel like sorting out all the quotations and finding a structure though I'm practically 60% done when I write down all of what is in my head plus quotes (which I have already written down by hand while reading the books). Having a lot of time for something really makes you work slowly on it, right?


But since I am here already, today I'd like to write about powerful women. The past weeks I have been thinking about what is the best way to overcome the overly attached, unspoilt, cute, quiet, and sometimes annoying view of women that a lot of people/men have and that is generally really popular in anime/manga/games and the Japanese culture.

To be honest, I am extremely tired of this perception.
One of the things annoying me in particular is men ignoring women's real character, particularly Japanese men (probably because Japanese girls are so quiet?). I have even talked to man who dared to interpret a woman's characters in a completely twisted way - and while I didn't know what her true intentions really looked like, I was quite sure he was only interpreting it that way because it fitted him that way and pushed his ego (he basically said that she was sort of fond of him but she never spoke about him to me).

One example: By chance I read online (true story) that a Japanese guy asked for advice on a site where you can ask people questions more or less anonymously - something like yahoo answers. The title of his question was: 'Women who have no need for boyfriends'. So he was telling his story of how he was in love with this girl and knew she broke up with her ex because she didn't need a boyfriend and wanted to have time to pursue her hobbies and find new friends (=totally understandable if you ask me). Then when the guy says when he asked her what relationship they have, she said she doesn't know and when he asked her what he is to her, she replied with 'important'.
So the guy is wondering if the girl would remember him when she wanted a boyfriend and says that probably timing is important - and then asks the others what they think.
And what is the second line (after the greeting) this j*** from the top answer says to him?

'I don't think there is any woman who doesn't need a boyfriend.'

I really lost it when I read that. He didn't say that he doesn't think there isn't any girl who doesn't WANT a boyfriend, he literally said he thinks every girl needs a boyfriend (or else she isn't a real girl or what?)!! From what he wrote, this is one of the guys who thinks if they put kindness coins into a girl she will be what he wants her to be... that women can't manage their life on their own! While even from my thesis I read about researches that make obvious it is JAPANESE MEN who cannot get along in life when they get a divorce.
You know, if it is some other sort of 'light' sexual harassment, I don't mind it as much as this. Attacking women to not be able to get along on their own is so terribly rude, I really start wanting to punch someone!

And this kind of thinking goes up to a level where I am ashamed of men, like when I read this article. I am particularly angry and willing to find way to change and attract awareness to what is happening because this kind of situation of women in the workforce is a part of my thesis.
But that is also when I start realizing that by the years, there is more women working in full-time positions in Japan and having careers in typically male working fields.

One of the things that also made me realize Japan's society and perception of women is changing was when I was yesterday looking for an anime with an elder protagonist (one not in school anymore, I am tired of the characters with a childish mind-set), I was surprised to find one from the Sci-Fi genre called 'Psycho-pass' that grew more and more on me and of whom I did not strongly dislike any female characters.
This is extremely rare because isn't there always some annoying, overly cute girl who speaks in a high voice and who's life has no use? (Basically they are called 'Shojo' and there is research papers about them too!)

But while the female protagonist (Akane) in 'Psycho-pass' does have a higher voice, she is not a shojo with no use, she has a job and is considered calm and ambitious, and always did well in her studies during school/training. But the other girls in this anime are more mature, have a job and also make themselves useful for the society they live in. I was extremely surprised that I was becoming fond of all the female characters, even so the protagonist's friend Yuki who works as a blue-collar worker which is actually very rare because those workers are the ones that do manual labour - they work with their hands, use heavy machines for things like construction etc. Though this could be an 'easier' job too, this is the image you usually get when you hear from blue-collar workers.


And that's not all. Yuki is very considerate of the 'air' she creates and how other people around her feel, though she might look a bit like a selfish person from the first view. She is soft, maybe a little cute but by no means is she the dependent kind of girl; she does not have a boyfriend, and on top of that, she does not mysteriously fall in love with the male protagonist who saves her life and is smart enough to follow the instructions he gives her in a dangerous situation (yet with a bit of resistance... meaning you get she is thinking for herself).

In fact, none of the girls in this anime seem to be magically drawn to a guy just because he is cool or good-looking or anything like that. It's the other way round actually - one good-looking main character guy (Shuusei) finds most girls too intimidating and tries to find a quiet, weak, calm girl for himself which does not really work out for him in the end.


Another bad-ass woman is Shion, who does the analyst work (originally though she is a physician) and is extremely attractive if you ask me. Yet, surprisingly her whole team takes her seriously. She 27 years old, wears those provocative red clothing that shows a lot of skin and is educated and smart (& you usually would rather see this kind of playful but smart female character in US shows, right?)

Shion on the left and Akane on the right

She is also very open with sexual topics (saying things like 'I bet the bra I'm wearing today on this!' in a public discussion) and not at all intimidated by men, taking sexual harassment - in the form of someone grabbing a girls butt at work - not too seriously ( if I'd be an anime character I think I'd be her haha).

 ...talking about one of her female coworkers here.

There is more girls, but since I am still in the middle of watching this, I will stop here because I don't want to take the fun away for now. Let me only mention that the head of the police department is an elder women.

But while you might all  already know that I am impressed with strong (blonde) female characters, don't you think these girls even go one step further with their whole being? None of them cares about men and they all have work and focus on it or the way they want to lead their life. And men take them seriously!

Seeing this anime made me really happy because not only that it is very interesting to see another Sci-Fi future, and follow the philosophical talk that leads you to think about how the world is working and how it should be working but it also shows another future vision of strong women. I really really hope Japan's society is going, at least with a few women, into this direction and if you want a good anime, please check this one out. I'd like it if a lot of girls watched this one.

 

 If you're slightly interested, maybe the cool opening might convince you to give it a shot~

If you are, like me, extremely upset with too young characters and weak female characters that are being nothing but useless (or maybe are only used as eye candy), this is really something for you. I was surprised myself how extremely drawn I was to this from the start (& after the 4th or 5th episode it gets really thrilling).


Okay, changing the topic slightly now - but not really.

Other than gaining respect for a profession that you have to put a lot of effort into by studying, what is another way for a modern women to become independent and respected by others?
You have an answer? - Well, there is more than one answer but the one I have in my head is:  
opening your own business.

How do we do that? Well, I am not actually here to teach you how to open your own business because to be blunt, I have no idea haha. But you can practice this kind of thing by opening your own host club!

You don't believe me? Have a look at it yourself!


Now what is this sparkly good-looking guy business here? It's a browser game you can play on ameba called 'My little hosts' where you open your own host club and manage it (by simple leveling up hosts).
Actually the title differs slightly each time the event changes but it's something like
'Protect me! -kanji that are pretty badass & I'm too lazy to look up but that name the current event- My (little) hosts'
With that you get the idea what it is about... right? - But to be honest, when I first looked at it from the title I really thought that I was just some kind of help at the place.
Usually, in host clubs there is no female staff (in contrast, hostess clubs usually have male waiters) so I was quite surprised that in the game you got to work there as a girl. Since I don't know too many kanji but could navigate myself through the game, I kept guessing that as a girl working there you might have some kind of accounting position in the 'back', which seemed the most logical to me ... until it came out that you can talk to the guys and they actually call you 'owner'!!

So that is how the story starts, you have this club and you walk around the street and recruit guys for it (I am quite sure it's much easier than in real life). They come up to you, most of them being polite but some, especially in the beginning, saying that a female owner is so rare... or something like 'Oh there is something like that, a female owner?' or 'Don't think you can become friends with me'.

Soon you will realize that most of the guys you recruit are quite nice to you. Each time when you are meeting a new face, that person will come up to introduce himself to you and many of them have actually real voices (some from very popular anime seiyuu I guess?).


  Guys who want to try working at your club introduce themselves to you first.
(Hosts that are rare have a voice attached during that, 'plain' guys ones don't)

On top on that, you can unlock their stories by leveling them up and go on dates with them to make their charming power even stronger. When you go on dates with them, you give them a call and you'll get a voice answering if they have time for the date (when they have the voice attached... some don't).


... unlocking & reading their stories and hearing their voice again when they have one attached.

Just giving them a straight call, you can invite the guys who work for you to a date (if you have a date ticket)! 
You're THE female pimp!

Then there is another kind of date, or event that you can go to other than to work. By going to the event (this was an event during rainy season) you can gather experience points for yourself, as well as rewards (roses) when the hosts protect you against some evil guy that is trying to do you harm. The roses can be exchanged for random prizes that are 'money', energy drinks to fill up your empty energy gauge or something like new hosts. The hosts are displayed as cards.

... some normal date (?) event and then a rainy day date event

There's also a way to have call battles (probably from 'champagne call battles' ?) where you can let your hosts fight (or rather drink) against another owner's hosts. Only the 5 most popular/strongest host will be doing this work, they will win experience and some kind of 'puzzle' bonus one can collect. Besides that there is also 'normal' work where you and your host can gain experience points and through which you can meet new hosts.

Actually, rather than me explaining any more of that, you should try it yourself if you want to be the owner of a host club for once! The downside is that it is almost all in Japanese, especially the conversations. You might get the idea if you understand only little of it though. And then there was this one Engrish scene that was almost perfect English but then they didn't make it.


I am being mean... but, instead of talking any more about it, please check it out on ameba yourself (it's a free Japanese blogging site). I think you need an ameba account to play it but you'll see the game right away in the games section.
If you don't feel like playing it, this game actually seems to be modeled after an entertainment (?) TV show that is only on since a few months if I got it right.


It's a little different but then the girl seems a bit more powerful than usual real Japanese girls and the guys (especially one who sells flowers) are extremely surprised to hear that she is the owner of a host club which upsets the owner sometimes. It then gets funny when the hosts seem to be romancing the female owner a little but she also seems to have fights with the staff.
To be honest, the game seems more 'serious' to me with the idea of a female leader. Then again the girl in the TV show doesn't seem to be very educated, so maybe there is a slightly bad view on her because of that and not only because she is in a leading position (hierarchies in business positions in Japan are generally really tough when it comes to someone's education/experience).

You see, there is many options opening up for ambitious women these days and I feel like these struggles to be accepted as a woman who is attractive, smart, educated and independent are slowing becoming recognized as we are little by little less discriminated by our age, too (at least I hope this is the direction it is going towards).
I hope women can be recognized as intelligent and independent even when they decide to care about their looks & to be beautiful, and that women who are intelligent are not seen as men's enemies. And I hope that women set goals for themselves for the future other than watching their 'outer beauty' fade.

After all, I just hope that if hey wish to, women can get the chances to work in the same professions as men (e.g. managers, blue collar workers) and become proud of that, as well as I hope that men will not be discouraged to work in positions that are in typically female field (e.g. nail-artist).

This was a very long post, oh my god, I always have so much to say here but I hope you can take something from this with you and expand your horizon.

If you like, please also share your opinion in the comments, I am really interested to hear it ♡

maybe they'll ride it here on a unicorn.

Oh hey, it has been a month again!
I wanted to write about a lot of things actually but either I was busy with something or I did not have my laptop with me or I was in pain... well, lately, it's allergy season for me and on top of that there's always something annoying me, I have no idea why I am sick that often. It's just a thing that comes when I have a stressful time I guess. And you know, I am one of those people who set high goals for themselves and want to have everything (minus the not so important things) finshed not one day in advance but like 5 weeks in advance? Yes, honestly, that's me.
What's been helping me through this phase has been my favourite doctor haha. I've been watching House M.D. in 2008 already but since it was on tv I didn't watch it regularly and did not see every episode. I can say the first 3 seasons are definitely proving this was at least one of the most promising shows I have ever seen.


Honestly how can you not like this guy? Unless he was your actual doctor... that would be a bit of a pain maybe. But uh, there is some kind of wicked philosophy in him that I cannot resist.

Besides this, when I had a bit of free time I decided to do my nails. Since they grew a bit longer I first just wanted to put a gel coat but when I finally figured out what I was doing wrong all those years (and why my gel nails fell off so quickly when I did them myself) I decided to have them a bit more fancy. The result was that they lasted longer than 2 weeks.


Did I ever mention that I made this blog with the intention to only show my nails? 
But then I stopped doing my nails... and now I am not having them so fancy. Even though I want my nails fancy, filing them off takes so damn much time and during class I don't want people staring at them too much... for some reason. I'd want to do them more fancy again when in Japan though! My current nails just have a different glitter and are a bit longer. My natural nails are this long.


I was lazy with filing. And I wanted to do different nails but I need to order coloured gel because all my colours have gone bad (rather you can't see the colour anymore) ... but oh the money. Currently trying to save up on so many things (TT)

And before I forget it, there was the Japanday event which I usually don't go to but there was a band playing this time and also I got the chance to meet a friend I didn't see for a long time. So here are some pictures! My allergy wasn't that bad back then and the weather was really nice until the sun set. It was a nice day overall though and I could finally relax and just stop thinking for some time.

I am a babe, I know (^_−)−☆



 Also met Jasmin that day for a bit!





 The free gig (band: crow x class) wasn't too bad besides. Well, it was VK after all haha!

And here you have one more selfie I took when I still had exte and then I am off before this post gets even longer. I feel like all my posts are messy? But that's probably because I have to keep my tidyness for all the other tidy things I do for university (read: thesis) haha.


Oh my god in this picture I can see I am aging though! 
Or maybe I just had a long day? I hope that's it!


I hope I can post again soon because I am planning a game review of some Japanese mini games I found lately. Hope you are all looking forward to it!


PS. I have a fernopaa/gravil dress for sale here. Take a look if you're interested?

coffee & orange juice: amsterdam's secrets

I am back from Amsterdam!
And wow, I mean wow, it was really a wonderful trip. It was more of a spontaneous, planned two weeks in advance idea but I always always always wanted to go to Amsterdam just like I want to go to South America haha. Amsterdam was more realistic because of my student budget of course. And I didn't think I would like it that much but I did! In fact I like the city more than I thought I would!

Either way, our trip was from April 30th in the evening until May 2nd. May 1st was a public holiday and my two friends and I had off on Fridays (well I have technically off everyday besides Tuesday and Thursday but anyway 8D).
 I will spam you with all the pictures I took. It is quite some time ago that I felt so much like a tourist and I actually wanted to take even more pictures.




Our way there was with an ICE and I think it was my very first time. I was surprised about the extreme comfort and how fast it was... when we were walking to our seats while the train was running, we lost our balance so quickly but not like in other trains more like on a plane. It really felt like on a plane. Nice to see the DB (German Railways) can do some things right at least.

 





Upon our arrival we got to the Hostel and dropped our stuff there and got ready quickly. I took pictures on the way again.


Sarah was ready quickly and pretty energetic and cool-looking.

What did we do first then? Of course we went to a coffee shop to relax.











After some time Sarah felt not so energetic anymore. First I was the one who was pretty down. I don't know why but I felt cool and calm all the time until suddenly a sudden 'shot' hit me and I had to lean against the wall and I couldn't even say a single word because every word took so much effort to be said. I wanted to say so much but it all felt so heavy haha.

Then after a while I felt okay again and started talking more but then Sarah felt bad and I could see that she had the same problem as me because she did not talk at all and just made 'yes' and 'no' sounds. Everything was funny to me during that time and I kept laughing but then Sarah felt nauseous and I went out with her and she puked. I first though I had to puke to when I saw that but then I kept laughing again. Now that I remember it nothing was really funny and the things we talked about were not really funny either but I was really laughing non-stop. Ah, it was great.

We went to eat after that (even though I wasn't hungry) and then got to bed before 3a.m. which was still way too early for me but oh well.













 
We got some free sample stuff from that store we passed just as we were thirsty! Great timing.





'The Dungeon' in Amsterdam was pretty scaring actually. I recommend it if you like scary things!









We walked around the city/red light district... I wanted to take pictures but we walked past everything really fast. I wish we would have gone there at night again but my friends did not want to and I felt awkward going there at night alone.
 


The two went out for a boat trip which I didn't join because it was 10€ and I really did not want to spend my money on that lol. I went around the city and bought cigarettes and water instead. Also Sarah had mentioned a coffee shop named 'Goa' and just the name made it sound so overhelmingly good to me. And then, by chance, on the way back to the hostel, I found it! It was on the same street as our hostel! Unbelievable.

Also the cigarettes they have are the same as in Japan! We don't have those in Germany.





Then we when reunited we went to buy some stuff at the supermarket, I ate a bit (the two had eaten something before) and we went to Goa and chilled there quite sometime. It was the most epic store ever. Though the music was not so great, the people were great, relaxed and the atmosphere was great.

I wish they would make something like this more like a psychedelic club! Then I would definitely have to live there though haha.

It was already close to 1am when we were going back to our hostel and I really really wanted to go to this club I had found before and even though it took us at least 1 hour to get ready and Sarah took at least 3 things from the snack machine before we even went up to do our hair and change clothes, we did manage to get going.




We went to that club finally. Actually it was supposed to be free for students but that was only for dutch students, which sucked a bit. We had to pay 10€ just for the entrance but I quite like the club! My friends were not really fond of the music (trance-ish, electro) though.









First some weirdos talked to us but then some nice guy actually come up to me (even though I was wearing glasses and felt like I had really greasy hair lol) and we talked a bit. He was french and he was actually good-looking. I didn't know good-looking french guys exist. I wanted to talk to him more but it was already around 3am and my friend Kasia felt like she got a headache from the beers she drank before and so we left. The club was supposed to go only till 4am anyway but... I wanted to stay actually (TT)


Also, here is two videos of the club so you can imagine what it was like - just my kind of club.

video

The next day consisted basically of walking around and buying souvenirs. I was pretty annoyed of that because it was really damn cold too. But I still loved the city and after the club experience I decided that I might want to actually live there in the future!








 At last, cake for me. One special cake and one carrot cake on the way home to get down again haha.

That was it. It was a wonderful trip and I would really love to go back again! So far Amsterdam is definitely my favourite European city.

On a sidenote, is anyone else annoyed of blogspot? The normal posting gets so ruined when you chose different fonts, it's like an old version of livejournal, only worse ugh. No wonder I never post here.
