Justin Nozuka Video

So, as requested by Kate, here are the video's my friend made at the Juston Nozuka concert.
As you can see, we were standing really close and sing along way too loud...




You might hear me, but I'm not the loudest voice, that's my friend who was standing closest to the camera.

I especially like the Save Him song, because it's so sad and beautiful.
One girl even started crying, so sad.
Oh, and they're not the entire songs, it's very hard to keep up a camera the whole time. That's also why the quality is so crappy from time to time.

(these clips, duh)

Justin Nozuka

This thursday I went to a concert by Justin Nozuka in the 'Melkweg' in Amsterdam and it was amazing!
He's really good life, I love his music.

I went with two friends of mine, S. and L. First we went shopping, of course...
S. needed new sneakers so, I got really bored walking in and out of stores.
Especially because I'm broke, so I couldn't buy anything myself.

And I'm not a sneaker person. I have two pairs of chucks and that's it.

Anyway, we had fun though and after a while S. found some she liked, so we started walking to Leidseplein (where the 'Melkweg' is located).
The concert started early, at 19:30, and the doors opened a hours before.
At the Leidseplein we found a a little street with lots and lots of small Italian restaurants where you could pasta or pizza for 5 euro's.
Perfect for us, broke as we all kinda were by then.
After dinner we wanted to have some coffee (it was gonna be a long, long night), but our waiter started to ask all these wierd questions and telling us about the side-effects of coffee.
It was all very strange, and personaly, I fellt a little uncofortable.
He did get us coffee though.
And it was damn good too.

We met up with two other girls we knew later who were also going to the concert and went to the 'Melkweg' together.

Unfortunatly the concert was staged in the small hall, instead of the big one, so it was a little hot and crowded.
Then again, screaming girls really fill up any room.
And he's not that famous here.

The concert itself was great, I like him better with short hair, but it was all about the music.
Obviously the whole band was pretty stonded, but that to be expected when you do a show in Amsterdam.
They were amazing never the less and we were standing direclty in front of the stage.

I even had some major eyecontact.

I think.

Okay, probably not, but let's pretend.

Anyway, it was really cool and I had a great time.
It's all on youtube, you might even hear me singing along.
Not that you would know it though;)

My Favorite TV Shows Characters

So, I'm about to start watching the new episodes of my favorite tv-shows on the internet.
And I just realised that it's a big part of my life: T.v.

I should share it.

I'm pretty much addicted to watching tv shows.
I love it, love it, love it.
And because I actually attach to the people in them I made a list of my favorite tv show characters:

1) Dean Winchester - Supernatural. He is the ultimate bad boy with a good heart. Sexy, tough and damaged, but most of all, kick-ass. The entire show is kick-ass.
2) Barney Stinson - How I Met You Mother. Legen-wait for it-dary. Do I need to say more?
3) Sheldon Cooper - Big Bang Theory. The funniest person ever.
4) Miranda Baily - Grey's Anatomy. The show has sucked ever since season two, but Dr. Baily is the only reason I still watch it. Okay, and my mum and sister who still like it.
5) The entire cast (but especially Fez) - That 70's Show. reruns still crack me up, so sad it ended. Goodday. I said goodday!
6) Chandler Bing - Friends. The mother of all sitcoms, the father of all funny men.

Well, there are a lot more shows I watch, but these characters impressed me most.
And yes, I do watch a lot of sitcoms. What can I say, they just crack me up.

Pink Day

I'm having kind of a pink day today.
You might think, what the hell is a pink day?
Honestly, I don't really know.
I'm just feeling pink today.
Every single shade, from hot pink to lila.
You'll know what I mean when you have it too.

So, to honor the feeling I'm wearing pink clothes.

Allright, my jeans are grey, but that's because I don't have any pink ones.
Thank god, that would be really wierd.

My make-up is also pink today, but not over the top, I don't wanna look like a barbie doll.

And most impotantly: I just baked cupcakes.
Believe me, it's a must when you're having pink day.
I'll put the recipe in a new massage.

So, now you know what you have to do when you're feeling pink someday.
It's a fuzzy, warm and calm kind of feeling.
Very pleasant, really.

Gap Year

Well, I guess it's time to explain all the 'I don't have anything to do' references.
You see, I'm on a gap year.
I graduated highschool in the spring and I've pretty much bene sitting on my ass ever since.
Not that I don't have plans or anything, but they aren't starting for a little while.
In theory I'm working at the moment to earn the money I need to go to Italy in the spring.

But eventhough I'm inlisted at a job agency, I'm sitting at home.
I did a couple of crappy jobs, like handing out flyers and washing dishes.
The flyer-thing did pay a lot though. I made 230 bucks in one week, but I spend it all on visiting friends at their Universities.
Most of my friends, the guys that is, allready went to college.
From the girls on the other hand only two did, J. and K.
The others are taking a gap year just like me.
You know what, I'll tell you their stories to compare:

T., my previously mentioned best friend, is in Afrika.
N. is working as a nanny in New York.
M. is currently at home, but wants to go to New Sealand. There's no way she can afford it, so it's probably going to be Russia instead.
S. is going to Afrika as well, but she's still here at the moment to earn money.

So, now you know.
I'm planning on going to another job agency today, but i'm not sure how that's going to work out.
I don't have a lot of discipline.

Okay, I'm just plain lazy.

But I am going to do something soon. Because my aunt got me an inturnship at a tv show as wardrobe assistend.
She is a producer herself, so she knows a lot of people in that world.
I'm so excited, I can hardly wait.
It's so awesome, eventhough I'll be doing all kinds of crappy jobs on the set.
The inturnship is in Hamburg, Germany, which is an amazing city.
I'll be staying with my aunt and uncle and my little cousins.
Luckily I have a friend, S., in Hamburg so I can go out there.
Oh, I'm so excited.

Pyjama Party

Because my mum and sister weren't home last night I decided to have a good old slumber party.
so I had my friends S. and M. over for dinner and then some.

We coocked , watched a couple of lame-ass shows on tv and ate loads of chocolade.
At first we had the idea to do facials and other teen-movie slumber party stuff, but we ended up talking till 4:30 in de morning.
We did watch a great movie though, My Sassy Girl, with Elisha Cuthbert. Amazing, really, everyone should watch it.
Anyway, after the movie we actually had very deep conversations about relationsships, the world, personality differences, dreams, psychologie, friendship. You name it, we talked about it.

Well, and plain old gossip and boy talk of course.
But hey, we are girls.

Somehow we ended up talking through the night, so I'm a little tired now.
It's too bad two of my girls are abroad, because when we are all together we totally get the party started.
One of my friends who is away, T., is my partybuddy. We share a love of short dresses, flirting, going out, drinking and dancing all night long.
I really miss her on the weekends, we set the clubs on fire.

Well, I did have an amazing time last night, I recommend it to anyone.

My friends are hilarious when they are drunk.

We went out last night, like usual and the only club in my small town is kind of lame, so my friends always drink a lot there.
Omg, it's so funny.
The way they dance and talk and get a little too "touchy feely".
I always laugh my ass off.

We stayed out till 5 o'clock, when one of my friends, F., drove me home.
We were just riding when all of the sudden, bang!

A gardengnome.

On the side of the road.

I just remembered the pictures I took with my cellphone of me, F. and the gnome.
It was about kneehigh and plastic with a wierd tubethingy hanging from the back.

Anyway, I just drove past the place we found it and it was gone.
Kind of understandable, but I do wonder who the hell took it.
I mean, what would you do with a plastic gnome?

By the way, I totally get that this in completely uninteresting.
I really, really do.

A Little Sophie

My second blogmessage seems just a good occasion to tell a little more about myself.

First, let me put on some music.
No wait, no picking songs here. I've got to let my intuition guide me.
Okay, I've got one, here it goes.
(You might have already noticed it, but the song I listend to while I'm writing my message is on the bottom. Yes, exactly, right there, you found it.)

So, My name is Sophie. You probably could have figured that out on your own.
I'm eighteen and live in Holland.
Why not write my blog in Dutch then, you asked?
I did. I wrote the first message in Dutch yesterday, but I deleted it this morning and rewrote it in English.
It's more universal and a good excuse for me to write something other than songs in English.
I really like English, I think it a gorgeous language.
Since I was twelve or something I've been daydreaming and in English.
I've got to say it was a little hard at first.

Anyway, that's all very interesting and all (yeah right), but there's actually some significant information about me in that piece.
A lot of crap, I'll be the first to admit that, but if you payed any attention at all, you will have noticed that:
1) That I have the tendancy to change my mind over night.
2) I like the English language.
3) I write songs
4) I daydream a lot.
5) I sometimes talk to myself and that's kind of nuts.

Hmm... that seems like a nice way to start off. I think this going to a lot of fun.
At least for me. You, I'm not so sure.

Here We Go

So, I guess this is it.
My very first weblog ever.

It's not exactly what I had imagined, it's kind of a bummer.
I'm actually starting to feel a little bit lame. Just a little though.
Well, I guess I'm just going to have to make the best out of it.
Especially considering i don't really have anything better to do.
Nothing any more usefull than sharing my thoughts with the world.

Wow, i'm actually starting to look forward to this again.

I solemny pledge to sit at my computer every day, okay maybe not every day, with music in the background and write interresting and not so interresting pieces on my weblog.

Look at me, I'm allready doing it...
