On a saturday morning, around the end of June, my friend told me he was going to Amsterdam to see Passenger play a free show in The Vondelpark. A huge park in the middle of Amsterdam. I don’t know most of his songs, but I love the ones I do know. After convincing my mom to go with me we went there. Eventhough we missed the first 20 minutes, it was a great show.
His energy made the whole show as great as it was, it was clear he genuinely enjoyed playing this show. I only knew 2 songs that he played. One being Let her go obviously and the I don’t know the other one’s name so I can’t tell you. Continue reading Passenger, Vondelpark
I haven’t posted about this on here yet, but since the month of august I have an cinema card and I’ve used it quite a lot already. It’s just so easy to go to the cinema when you have nothing to do for a little moment. Here are a few films I’ve seen during August.
The spy who dumped me (3,5/5)
Director: Susanna Fogel
Cast: Mila kunis, Kate mcKinnon, justin Theroux
Tagline: They got this.
Age restriction: 16
Audrey (Mila Kunis) and Morgan (Kate McKinnon), two thirty-year-old best friends in Los Angeles, are thrust unexpectedly into an international conspiracy when Audrey’s ex-boyfriend shows up at their apartment with a team of deadly assassins on his trail. Surprising even themselves, the duo jump into action, on the run throughout Europe from assassins and a suspicious-but-charming British agent, as they hatch a plan to save the world. Continue reading Recently in the cinema #1
Yeah I know, I’ve been away for forever again. I know I tend to do this way too often. Everytime I’m in a good mood to write, I write posts for about a month or 2 and after that I just don’t feel like it anymore and I dissapear again.
Besides not really feeling like it, I’ve been very busy. I traveled again, started college, got my driver’s license and most of all just enjoyed life with my best friend. More about all of this later.
I won’t promise I’ll post a lot, but I do plan on posting on here again. Mostly about the stuff I’ve been up to lately and the things that interest me at this moment. So hope you’re excited for that!
Besides visiting London many, many times, I’ve seen a lot more of The Uk already. Eventhough I haven’t checked everything off my bucketlist for this country, I did many things I feel like I have quite a few things I think you should try to do at least once in your life.
Like I said, I haven’t done all on this list, but I hope to be able to one day. I might even make a part 2 if you would like that. I’m quite sure I can make up a lot more. Maybe even other countries?

Yes I realize that 3 months after it’s probably way to late to write this post, especially because I don’t even remember all about it anymore. However I did want to write it, so here we go.
Just like the last 2 years I went to this yearly Young adult event called YALFest. The authors they invited this year were Sarah Crossan, Tomi Adeyemi, Sara Holland, Taran Matharu, Kass Morgan (who I’ve met before) and Laura Steven.
It all started with an interview at the mainstage. It was fun and I enjoyed it, but it did miss someone like Lesley. However the interviewer becomes a little better at it every year, so that was nice to see.
A big hall was filled with many many stands, but besides a signed card from Lesley Livingston I didn’t buy anything. I loved how there were so many different brands, but there were a little too many stands with Candles and bookmarks. Those things are fun to see and buy, but maybe a little different things would be cool as well. Something more surprising.
There were 6, I believe, different masterclasses you could sign up for. The one we actually wanted was already fully booked so we decided to sign up for the one where they give you tips for writing a thriller. Not that I’m thinking about writing a thriller, but they were good tips and I’ve learned a lot.
Before the masterclass and after that I was in line for the authors for a very long time. At least 3 of them asked how I got my hair this bright, which was very fun. It made the meeting less awkward. Sarah’s daughter was also handing out sticky notes with her autograph, so I stuck that in my book. Laura asked if I could please take a picture with her, post it and tag her so she could remember my hair, Taran signed a sticky note for me because I had to buy his next book and stick it in there and Kass just got really excited when she saw we had met before.
They were all such nice people and eventhough we didn’t win anything at the end with the bingo I had the best time and I hope there will be another edition next year.
I wasn’t completely sure about going to this show, because this was the first show I went to where I didn’t know anyone. There was a golden circle anyway, so I didn’t queue till 12.
After buying merch and getting a little fucked over in the queue I found a group of girls who I spent the rest of the day with.
The support act, Drax project, wasn’t really my thing and I didn’t enjoy that at all. The other people around me loved it though, so it probably up to me.
Camila’s part of the show was amazing and it made up for the entire day, which had been kinda shitty. Throughout the entire show there were these little video’s. It was fun to see them, especially because they looked so cool.
She played all of my favourite songs, well most of them, like Havana, She loves control and Something’s gotta give, had incredible dancers and sang beautifully. The audience was very boring, but she also made up for that. I had the best time.
During Something’s gotta give there played these video’s in the background with made it even more memorable. They were from all kinds of important topics like Black lives matter, Gay pride, Woman’s march and March for our lives.
Next time I really want to go again, hopefully not alone and most likely first row. That would make the experience a whole lot better, so definitly worth the extra money.
I haven’t posted about this holiday yet, for no specific reason. Just haven’t had the time for it yet. Anyway I filmed something while traveling to a little island at the top of The netherlands with my family. You can watch it with the link down below.
