Een playlist

Je wordt werkelijk doodgegooid met stukjes over waarom iedereen en z’n moeder zo van de herfst houdt, dus ik ga het vandaag kort houden. Ik vind het ook best wel leuk enzo hoor, maar eehhh, kom op, DIE REGEN. Kan het even. Daar heb ik dus echt mooi geen zin in. Toch ben ook ik natuurlijk niet helemaal ongevoelig voor deze “herfst is helemaal hip” hype en daarom luister ook ik naar herfstige nummers. Wat dat nou precies inhoudt weet ik eigenlijk ook niet, maar het versterkt gewoon het herfstgevoel ofzo? Does that make sense?

Op youtube heb ik een playlist met 20 fijne (vind ik dan hè) herfstige nummers gemaakt. Fijn voor als ik onder een dekentje op de bank zit met een kop warme chocolademelk in m’n handen en Gilmore Girls op de tv, terwijl de regen zachtjes tegen het raam klettert en de kaarsjes branden (sorry, moest ik toch nog even zo’n cliché omschrijven). Overigens vond ik ‘m ook best geschikt voor in de trein of gewoon voor tijdens het studeren :)

(scroll! ↓)

1. First Aid Kit – A Long Time Ago
2. Family Of the Year – Hero
3. Amy Stroup – Far From Yesterday
4. The Paper Pites – Willow March Tree
5. Little Red Lung – Fangs
6. First Aid Kit – In the hearts of men
7. The National – England
8. Feist – Fire in the Water
9. The Shoe – Dead Rabbit Hopes
10. Radical Face – The Mute
11. The Smiths – Please Please Please
12. Snow Patrol – Chasing Cars
13. Jaymay – Sea Green, See Blue
14. Fleetwood Mac – Landslide
15. Alex Turner – Glass in the Park
16. Coldplay – Yellow
17. The Lumineers – Stubborn Love
18. Fleetfoxes – Lorelai
19. Editors – Phone Book
20. Junip – Line of Fire

Dan tot slot een verzoek van mij aan jou: laat jouw favoriete herfstnummer achter! Of gewoon je favoriete nummer van dit moment, want deze lijst kan nog wel langer! :)

Een playlist voor Kim

Gisteren vroeg Kim mij om een playlist van liedjes die ik leuk vind. Wie weet zat er voor haar ook iets leuks tussen? Jeetje, dat is echt nog best moeilijk! Om toch een soort van selectie te kunnen maken heb ik twee criteria gehanteerd: een vrouwelijke zangeres + liedjes waar ik op dit moment het meest naar luister. Nog steeds lastig om dan maar tien nummers uit te kiezen en het is ook een beetje een gekke mix geworden, maar vooruit… het is gelukt! Kim, ik hoop dat er iets leuks voor je tussen zit! ♥






Als 8tracks niet werkt, dan heb ik hier ook de youtube versie. Ik hoop dat de eventuele reclames niet al te irritant zijn… Have fun! En voel je vrij om je favoriete nummer van dit moment te delen in de comments! Altijd leuk om muziektips te krijgen natuurlijk :)

Zoals je ziet is dit Side 1… Met andere woorden… to be continued! ;)

Such a hard knock life

Whenever I meet up with a friend and they ask me what I’ve been up to lately, I have to think really hard to try and remember how I’ve been spending my days. It must be so annoying, but I really can’t help it. Nowadays I have little to no structure in my life. Sometimes I even forget what day it is! Yes, I do have a job and I’m also taking driving lessons, but other than that the past month has been one long vacation: taking out the canoes when the weather is nice, reading books, watching an episode of some mindnumbing tv-series during a bubble bath, going to the movies, cooking, spending time with friends, taking long walks, enjoying the town and it’s public events, working out… Everyday I have been busy with fun stuff. Obviously I’m not complaining!

Most of all, it is awesome not having a school-deadline annoying me in the back of my head. Around this time last year I just came back home from my semester in Sweden and at the same time I was busy finishing up my thesis. SO MUCH STRESS. To everyone who is going through it now: good luck! You can do it! I myself am treasuring these last few stress-free months. Only three left till september…

My “year off” is not over yet, but I think I can already conclude it has been a success. Like a quote I found on the web: “There are some things you learn best in calm, and some in storm.” And although the past year has not been exactly calm (trust me: moving twice is no fun at all y’all), I did have the time to “stand still”. Sort of. Because I do not feel like I’ve been standing still AT ALL. I’m not going to go all “I NOW KNOW WHAT LIFE IS ABOUT” on your ass, because that is certainly not true, but the past year did give me a chance to catch a break. A welcome one indeed :-)

Anyway, like we would say in dutch: let’s go with the goat. I’ll share some ~objects of my affection~.

This thread on reddit about strangers you still think about is such a good read ♥ Like you can see in one of the snapshots above, I’m reading Kafka on the Shore by Haruki Murakami. I’m a bit of a slow reader at the moment, so I’m not that far in yet, but I’m really loving it already. Just like Norwegian Wood it has an atmosphere of mystery which really manages to pull me in. ♥ THIS PICTURE. I CAN’T EVEN… (I found it on reddit, but I can’t find the original post) ♥ Pretty Little Liars season 4 has started! I feel a bit bad for still following that show, but I really can’t help it. Those outfits they’re wearing though… horrific. ♥ How amazing is this woman? 13 hours, wow! ♥ Kim visited me this week and it was so nice to see her again. So, yes, not an object, but definitly a lot of affection there :) Also: happy birthday today Kim!! Sorry I can’t be there! :( ♥ I’ll have to wait till august before I can see The Bling Ring… pfff… has anyone seen it already? How was it? ♥ My internet connection sucks over here (hence the lack of updates… seriously, I already tried to post this entry like five times): a lot of hearts for good working wifi out of the house ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

And here is a playlist of my fav songs of the moment. It turned out to be a bit of a weird and nonsensical one. Oh well.

Have a nice weekend everybody xx

STUFF

Posing in front of the mirror with bad lighting ▲ Two snapshots of our bedroom ▲ Yup, an old soda bottle in front of our window ▲ Crazy wallpaper over at a friends house ▲ An old picture of my dad.

We finally have a working internet-connection in our home, yay!

We also have a working fireplace and it’s so nice and cozy to just sit near the fire.

I saw a pretty amazing movie for the second time this week: The Perks of being a wallflower.

Right now we are alive and in this moment I swear we are infinite. – Charlie (in The Perks of Being a Wallflower)

It’s a cute one on a whole lot of levels and a lot because of the soundtrack. DAVID BOWIE. THE SMITHS. I know I’m a hipster for saying it, but I ♥ them. Here is a playlist with a few of my favorite songs of the moment ☊.



k
Have a nice week(end) everybody :-) x

just like honeyyyyy (a playlist)

So, ok, I know I’m a day later with this than promised (Bear with me! My internet was failing me yesterday!), but here it is: my playlist, especially made for us dramaqueens who sometimes like to pretend they are playing the role of Charlotte in Lost in Translation. I made a cheesy collage to go with it, just for fun. Now, because my internet was failing me & because I turned out to be a bigger internet geek than I thought, my playlist is a bit short. But, here they are anyway, eight songs that are (in my opinion) dreamy and perfect for staring dramatically out of windows.

1. Girls – Death in Vegas

2. The Cure – Pictures of you

3. Kevin Shields – City Girl

4. Air – Alone in Kyoto

5. New Order – Ceremony

6. Neil Young – Old Man

7. The Radio Dept. – Pulling our weight

8. Jesus & Mary Chain – Just like honey
