I’ve been here before.

And, so, I find myself here again, greeted by the familiar face of heartbreak.

Helplessly, I stand gazing into his blue eyes watching as his long bloodied fingers interlock with the threads that held my heart together and unpick the vital pieces.

I have seen him before.

The gorgeous teeth and beautiful smile hypnotising you, leaving you spellbound.

But as the space between us shrank, his true colours shone. It reveals his broken smile and scared cheeks.

The smell of his breath and his sadistic grin are all to familiar. I don’t want to be here.

UK trip – Part 5

After Brighton I was going to Camebridge, but before I went there I had a stop in London. My friend Sam and I were going to meet there. In the beginning it was hard to find each other because it was very busy at the station. Well I did see him, but I was distracted by the fact that his glasses were blue and not black so I lost him again.
He took me to some rooftop which was pretty cool and after that we spend most of the day talking at Starbucks. I had my luggage with me, so it was hard to walk a lot. I had a lot of fun with him. Continue reading UK trip – Part 5


I already had some fun things planned for after England, concerts mostly. The first one was on friday the 24th of November. Me, my mom and our neighbours were going to see a dutch band, Racoon in a venue in the city that I live in. I had already seen them 2 times before this year, but this was the only time it was actually about them. The first time was at a festival and the other time they were guests at another concert.

We saw the doors opened at 6.30 pm so we wanted to be there around that time. We just didn’t realize the support act would start at 8, so we had to wait a really long time. It was worth it though, our places were amazing. I was on the front row and the others were just behind me.

I didn’t know the band that was opening, but they were fun. I’m not completely sure anymore, but I think they were called The Royal Engineers. My mom said there music had kind of a 70s sound, but they had a lot of different kind of songs. I don’t know a thing about music genres, so I’m sure she was right. Continue reading Racoon

Uk trip – Part 4

After St Austell it was time for me to go to Yeovil. I didn’t know a lot of things I could do there, but I knew some people who I could possibly meet up with. Right after I arrived I went to tesco because me and a friend would meet up there, however I was early and he was late so during the time I was waiting I ran into a friend who I hadn’t spoken to for months. More about him later though. Like I said I met up with another friend before.

We went to for a walk around town and while sitting for a bit and enjoying the view we decided to go to Mc Donalds for dinner. We spent most time just eating, talking and we wrote in my book so it’s not the most interesting thing to talk about, however we had a lot of fun. Continue reading Uk trip – Part 4

Review: Mosquitoland – David Arnold

Title: Mosquitoland
Author: David Arnold
Publisher: Headline Publishing Group
Price: €10,99
Rating: 9/10

When her parents unexpectedly divorce, Mim Malone is dragged from her beloved home in Ohio to the ‘wastelands’ of Mississippi, where she lives in a haze of medication with her dad and new (almost certainly evil) stepmom.
But when Mim learns her real mother is ill back home, she escapes her new life and embarks on a rescue mission aboard a Greyhound bus, meeting an assortment of quirky characters along the way. And when her thousand-mile journey takes a few turns she could never see coming, Mim must confront her own demons, redefining her notions of love, loyalty, and what it means to be sane.

The ones who have been following me for a little bit longer now might now that last April I’ve got to meet David Arnold. Because I was meeting him was pretty much the only reason why I started reading this book, but I’m really glad I did. When I saw that Mosquitoland got translated as well I needed to read that one. Continue reading Review: Mosquitoland – David Arnold

UK trip – Part 3

Yeah I kinda left my blog again. Well not totally because I planned posts for my entire trip, I just didn’t write any new posts anymore. Now I’m finally back from england so new posts can and will be written. I will first start will the rest of the UK trip posts and tags I was tagged in.

I only had one full day in Bath and there were many things I wanted to do, but I could fit it all in one day. First I went to The Royal Crescent and the park next to it. It looked pretty cool, but it was difficult to take pictures because it was so big. After that I went to the Roman baths. It was a cool place to see, but it was a big expensive. However I didn’t want to leave Bath without seeing that.  It was quite busy, but that also had to do with the fact that it was half term break in England. The last thing I did was going to the Thermae spa. I never really went to a spa before, mostly because I don’t like sauna’s. In here there were many pools, so it wasn’t a bad thing to not go into the sauna. Continue reading UK trip – Part 3
