Haha I love Flickr Stats, people are actually googling me!


22nd of September


Found some photos from last summer that I hadn't used. Seems like I have a neverending stash on my external harddrive.


16th of September

Daniel has been visiting the past days. We took a lot of long walks and talked about how we should arrange everything, about him moving here... It's really been quite stressful to work everything out and do it right. We have been looking for jobs and appartments here and there, but we're thinking of taking things slow and do everything well thought through, instead of rushing into things and end up with less. Bad jobs, bad apartments, no money... Of course we want to be together right now but we have to think about the long run. First things first, Daniel has to work a lot on the new EF-record and put away some money. It feels good that we talked about this and made real plans that we both feel good about. Clears up my mind a bit.

Besides that, this weekend we went to visit my grandparents, went out to dinner at a Juguslavian place (so great, we got free alcohol), went to school and totally overwhelmed Daniel by introducing him to about 40 people, and we watched a whole season of How I Met Your Mother in bed while eating left-over thai food. We taught each other some songs on my ukulele. Really mindblowing how fast Daniel figures instruments out. I proudly taught him a few chords to a Beirut song and an hour later he's playing freakin Bach.

This morning he went back. His birthday is on friday and it breaks my heart that I can't be there. I want to bake him a cake with 28 candles. I know the past few years his birthdays haven't been fun, I guess it's much nicer when there's someone around who cares.

Here are some photos from last month that I realised I havent posted yet.




Yesterday was my first-year-diploma ceremony. Only 15% of all students had passed everything in the first year at once, so we had a little party thrown for us.



I'm going through all the old pictures on my external harddrive, it's so funny... I didn't even remember all the bad hairdo's I've had in life. Anyone remember me being ginger?! I must have blocked it out.

Things from last year that made me smile when i found them back:

This will forever and ever be the first picture we were in together. The guys came to pick me up from my house and Daniel rang my doorbell. The first meeting after all those long letters we wrote. He looked awful, to be honest; big beard, tired eyes... Yet I knew there was something, he was different, he was special. In the short time we'd known each other we had become great friends. I had developed certain feelings for him but never thought he would like me back in that way. Sharing the front seat, forced to touch legs, I'm pretty sure there was a spark but we were both shy. Later that night we found out that these feelings were mutual, and that's about 10 months ago now. I love this picture and I don't care that my legs looks bigger than his.

Soulwaxmas, when Chiara and I missed like EVERYTHING that was playing cause we were upstairs feasting on free food and Nintendo Wii and not falling for Gaspard From Justice's bad pickuplines.

and that dude Mickey Moonlight going: 'Get Steve get Steve get Steve...' at my camera the whole time. YES, MR SPIELBERG.

Paris with Maddie:

Going to the worst festival in the world to see Rage Against The Machine and being in pictures with strangers.

Going to the best festival in the world to see Flaming Lips (AND Sigur Ros, Fuck Buttons, Hot Chip, Yeasayer, Fuck Buttons, Iron & Wine, Two Gallants and um, yeah, well, Soulwax)

EF at Stubnitz

This is what I looked like when we first met.

This is what you looked like when we first met.

This is where we met.

Elke and Buffy were there too.

London visiting Florence

Loads of parties and festivals and milestones I dont have pictures of, like De Affaire when I saw Why? and Liars, Isi Digitalisms birthdayparty when Michelle and I made a cake for Isi but ate it ourselves, the Soulwax DVDreleaseparty in april, Soulwax new years' parties way at the beginning, finally moving to Amsterdam...

Concluding now that 2008 was the best year ever. Great parties and festivals and I met the man that I love. Calmed down, settled down, don't like parties that much anymore, but up to now 2009 is looking to be just as awesome in its own right.

Going through your old pictures can really make you appreciate where and who you are where and who you and have been.


5th of September

I wish I could remember more than the fact a James Brown song was playing and it was the start of almost everything in my life that matters right now.


Zomerparkfeest Venlo

Zomerparkfeest is a great festival near my parents' house. They always manage to book a lot of nice and not-so-wellknown artists.


The wonderful Sonicbrat from Singapore, he is really talented and we're talking about doing a music/photography collaboration in the future. Pretty exciting! http://www.myspace.com/s0nicbrat
