Destination: Finding a Place To Live #2

“Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?
That depends a good deal on where you want to get to.
I don't much care where –
Then it doesn't matter which way you go.” 
― Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland

London, Wapping, Erin's place, 19.11.2012
I woke up at 8AM. Kill me. Jesus, this was so hard. But Erin needed to go to work. So I went. I went to Covent Garden first. And god, I am so awful and dumb in the morning. It took me like 20 minutes to find a stupid Costa caffee. Uh huh. Then I went to Trafalgar Square. I called B and it was so nice to chat a bit with a friend. Then I went to Victoria to buy the ticket to Edinburgh and holy cow, the price got twice bigger. I was in shock. No, no, no. I sent a message to Erin, asking her if I could stay another night. 
And I booked the ticket for Tuesday. :) Then I finally changed the money – and OMG I was so scared walking around with them. I wanted to arrive at the bank as soon as possible. I wanted to cut the way to it, and ofcourse, I got lost. I came out at the nearly end of Oxford Street. Geez. But ok. It was so beautiful with the lights and all. They also made a freaking fake snow!! Amazing, really. When I came to the bank I was so relieved :) I put the money on the account and the problem was solved! Yeey :) I also saw A. We chatted a bit and they I went. God, I was so tired. And it started to rain. Ugh. So I decided to go to Waterstones. I sat in the Young Adult section and I read. I was there for 3 hours. I felt a hell of a lot better when I left. :) Then I went to Erin's place and we watched TV.

London, kitchen, 20.11.2012
I woke up with Erin. And I went to Tower Bridge. I went to Costa to take a coffee because I seriously couldn't wake up. The weather was weird. So I called Emanuela and asked her if I could come to the house, because seriously I didn't know what to do with  myself. She said yes. And I was again in the best kitchen EVER. Drinking tea. I haven't done anything special – just chilling out. Writing the blog. In the evening I went to Victoria station to wait for the bus. At 11PM we took off to Edinburgh. Yeeey. I fell asleep quite fast and it was actually not that annoying to sleep on the bus :P

Edinburgh, 21.11.2012
Morning came too fast. I thought we were in New Castle and that I had more time to sleep, but mother fuckers, it was 8AM and we were in freaking Edinburgh. Fuck yeah. But I was so tired and sleepy. Ugh. I met with Imran for a coffee at the University. After the coffee I felt like a normal person, so it was ok. I still had no plan though. Imran went for classes and I stayed at the Starbucks. I checked the hostels (Thank you very much Ines for the support and for calming me down when I was freaking out – it was actually very easy then) and I've found the cheapest hostel EVER, called The Hostel – imagination rules the world, huh? Then I stayed there some more and then I went in the search for The Hostel. And I got lost. Go figure. I called them and then I took a bus and with the GPS and everything I managed to find The freaking Hostel. The room was pretty nice. I said I would lay down for just half an hour. Uh huh, I woke up at 7.30PM. I went for a walk to see the city. I drunk a smootie and when I arrived on the top of Princes Mall I sat down. And I started freaking out. Geeez. And then I was freaking out some more. And then my phone biped. I checked it and it was Imran asking me if I wanted to have a drink. YES! Thank you destiny ;) I went to the Uni campus and we had a beer and a cider. Holy cow, 2.30 pounds for a Cider?! I died and woke up in heaven!! Yeeey! I wasn't freaking out anymore :P We talked and it was really nice. I felt better about everything then. Yeah, in that moment I knew everything is going to be ok.

Edinburgh, The Hostel, 22.11.2012
I woke up around 10AM and I prepared my stuff and took off to go to Uni. And it was raining. I went to Costa and I called mom. By the time I arrived at Uni my shoes were soaked and my socks were wet like I had took a shower with them on. Ugh. Then I spent an hour searching for the office. Jesus I was so pissed off. And soaked. Finally I've found it in the totally oposite way of the campus. And I finally met Toni!! YEEY. Was about time. She is actually really nice. She gave me a letter of confirmation that I applied at the Uni of Edinburgh. Then I went to the Uni Coffee and got a messagge of Shuna saying if I wanted to see the apartment that evening. I was sure. He said around 5PM. It was 2PM and I had lots of time to kill. I drunk coffee and read Cinder. And my feets were coming back to life slowly. Around 5.30PM I met Shuna at the Library and we went to have a drink. In a nice Scottish pub :D Very Scottish. There were only men and one was playing the guitar and singing. It was cool! And then we went to see the flat. Wasn't that bad – was actually ok – the room was somehow big like my old room at home and the place looked nice. And it's cheap. And then we decided to go out together to this party – James Bond theme party. I was so on for it!! So we decided to meet later. I went to the Hostel and prepared myself. I wore the dress :P And make up :P And shoes :P And I was beautiful. I went for a drink at the other hostel and woah, I drunk Mixed fruits Cider and it was very good. Then I met Shuna and his friend Tony in a pub and then we went to this club. Which was very cool – the drinks, read: Rum and Coke – were only 1.3o pounds!! Awesome, awesome! I don't even know how many of them I drunk. Lots :P It was awesome. And there was this girl that worked there, Hannah, and she was really nice! And I danced! I danced a LOT. I had such a great time. 
And also there were these stickers with all the flags of the world! And you've picked up yours and put it on yourself somewhere and so everyone practically knew where you were from! And they had the Slovenian one!! :) And then I noticed a guy. He was beside the DJ and I really, really liked him! I actually spoke with him outside for a sec and it was around 2.30AM that I decided to take action! I took a flyer and I wrote my FB name on it. And I went to the guy and I gave it to him. He looked at it and he had this puzzled expression on his face, but when got it, he looked at me and said ok. So I went away. And after less than 5 minutes my phone buzzed and I got a friend request on FB. Holy woah!! I was happy. I danced some more and then it was 3AM and the night was over. And the rain was incredible. Fuck. Diluvio universale would be the word. And I had no umbrella. I was so pissed off. And I started running toward The Hostel. It wasn't even that far – about 10 minutes – but hell, I was soaked when I arrived. I went to sleep.

Edinburgh, The Hostel, 23.11.2012
I woke up and went to Uni. I had a coffee and I read Cinder. Imran called me and asked me for a drink, I said ok. He finished at 3PM and we met at the entrance of the pub. He had some issues regarding something and we decided to discuss it with a pint of Cider in our hands. After the second pint I was hungry and I ordered a pizza <3 <3 Finally, I missed pizza like crazy. And that Uni Pub is really cheap – and I love it! After 5 hours of talking and drinking I was exhausted. I felt bad for leaving him, but I was really tired, so I went home. Full party was going on at The Hostel. Woah, ok. I laid down for half an hour and then I went to the Lounge room and it was pretty fun. I even met a guy from Slovenia!! His name is Aleš. And he is cool. He wanted to go out but I was still tired so I said no. I went to sleep.

Edinburgh, The Hostel, 24.11.2012
It was a rainy day and I didn't really feel like doing anything. So I stayed at The Hostel. And reading Cinder. I finished it. And I started reading Tempting the Player and OMG I became so frustrated and I really needed some happy time. So I took it. And I felt so much better after :P :) In the evening Aleš bought some Wisky and we started drinking. It was quite fun! The people at The Hostel are really nice and there is this boy that works there and I'm calling him Pretty-boy and I think he likes it :P I like him. I chatted with everyone and we were having fun. But then I got sloshed and good God, I passed out around 11PM. Ugh. So much for going out :P

Edinburgh, The Hostel, 25.11.2012
I woke up feeling like shit. No hangover, but still feeling like shit. It was Sunday so we took it as a Sunday day. Aleš and I spent the day in the office with Pretty-boy. It was Pretty-boy's birthday. It was fun. Chilling out. Around 6PM we got really hungry and Aleš and I went to the Supermarket to buy some food. We made pasta with pesto and cheddar and it was awesome!! We ate together – me, Aleš and Pretty-boy. It was nice to finally eat something good and cooked and not alone :P But then we got so freaking full that we needed a nap. So we took a nap. Me and the Pretty-boy. It was nice :P 
And then he needed to go to meet some friends for his birthday. We were all in the lounge room feeling like shit and then I decided I wanted a party. And I started motivating people to have a party. And they were first like »nooooo still hangovered« and I was like »sleep when dead!« lol and then I got up and said »I am going to buy alcohol now, who wants some?« hehe and then 4 people gathered around me and off we went to buy beers. Aleš bought a Russian Vodka and OMG it's the best Vodka I've ever had! 
(Aby you would have loved it too ;P) It didn't taste strong like Vodka usually does and you could drink it like juice lol. And we had music and we played pool and we danced and we chatted and it was really cool! I ha dan awesome time! Then around 11.30PM the guy at the reception thrown us out of the lounge room and we gathered in another room and I saw a guy with the computer and I was like »hello, you're going to be the DJ-boy! Can you put on some music?« And he did! And we had music again :) It was really awesome. Until it was about midnight and I passed out again. Geeez, give a break. But whatever. I had fun! :P

Find the title on Goodreads

Humans and androids crowd the raucous streets of New Beijing. A deadly plague ravages the population. From space, a ruthless lunar people watch, waiting to make their move. No one knows that Earth’s fate hinges on one girl. . . . 

Cinder, a gifted mechanic, is a cyborg. She’s a second-class citizen with a mysterious past, reviled by her stepmother and blamed for her stepsister’s illness. But when her life becomes intertwined with the handsome Prince Kai’s, she suddenly finds herself at the center of an intergalactic struggle, and a forbidden attraction. Caught between duty and freedom, loyalty and betrayal, she must uncover secrets about her past in order to protect her world’s future.



- Goodreads.com description



Woah, Cinder was full of surprises! I didn't know what to expect from this book, but woah, did it blow me away! I actually thought it would be a Cinderella re-telling, but I must admit it hasn't felt that way at all :) I couldn't predict much how the story will develop and that was pretty cool! 

Cinder. God, I loved this girl. She was so funny and she always managed to stand up for herself and I really, really liked that. She was also very cool and the was a mechanic and she could practically solve any problem regarding machines. Like I said, badass. 

Prince Kai. Aww, he was such a sweet heart. I really liked him. And I liked that he was really open with Cinder. He was honest. 

The story Marissa Meyer created in this book was completely overwhelming. I've really enjoyed it. The concept that people could survive without some limbs and not being disabled - but actually cyborg and function properly - was super cool. The only thing I didn't like about this book was the ending - I honestly thought it ended too soon. I wish there was more :) But I guess I'll need to wait for the second book, right?

So, if you're searching for an amazing book filled with awesome characters, sweet innocent romance, greater good over evil queen Levana all wrapped in an incredible built world in the future, Cinder is the perfect book for you!

Something is wrong, her programming screamed at her. You are sick. You are ill. You are dying.
But she did not feel like she was dying. 
Her body felt so hot she was surprised she didn't incinerate the fragile dress. Sweat sizzled on her blow. She felt different. Strong. Powerful.
On fire.

Opal Book Trailer Reveal




No one is like Daemon Black.


When he set out to prove his feelings for me, he wasn’t fooling around. Doubting him isn’t something I’ll do again, and now that we’ve made it through the rough patches, well... There’s a lot of spontaneous combustion going on.

But even he can’t protect his family from the danger of trying to free those they love. 

After everything, I’m no longer the same Katy. I’m different... And I’m not sure what that will mean in the end. When each step we take in discovering the truth puts us in the path of the secret organization responsible for torturing and testing hybrids, the more I realize there is no end to what I’m capable of. The death of someone close still lingers, help comes from the most unlikely source, and friends will become the deadliest of enemies, but we won’t turn back. Even if the outcome will shatter our worlds forever.

Together we’re stronger... and they know it.

Deity by Jennifer L. Armentrout Review

Deity
The Covenant #3
by Jennifer L. Armentrout
Published on November 6th 2012
Spencer Hill Press, 360 pages
Find the title on Goodreads
Book Depository - Amazon

"History is on repeat, and things didn't go so well the last time. "

Alexandria isn't sure she's going to make it to her eighteenth birthday--to her Awakening. A long-forgotten, fanatical order is out to kill her, and if the Council ever discovers what she did in the Catskills, she's a goner... and so is Aiden. 



If that's not freaky enough, whenever Alex and Seth spend time "training"--which really is just Seth's code word for some up-close and personal one-on-one time--she ends up with another mark of the Apollyon, which brings her one step closer to Awakening ahead of schedule. Awesome. 


But as her birthday draws near, her entire world shatters with a startling revelation and she's caught between love and Fate. One will do anything to protect her. One has been lying to her since the beginning. Once the gods have revealed themselves, unleashing their wrath, lives will be irrevocably changed... and destroyed. 

Those left standing will discover if love is truly greater than Fate...

- Goodreads.com description

Uh huh. Honestly? I don't know how I feel about this book. I was so excited to read it, and after reading Pure - which was by the way pure awesomeness - I kind of thought this one will be even better. But it didn't feel that way. Still very good, but not the incredible thing I was hoping for it to be.

Alex. Well, she was a badass in this book too :P She was pretty frightened about all this Awakening stuff - and I really liked that. It made her look more human and it was fairly easy to connect with her. 

Love interest. I won't say a word, because I have a feeling I would be spoiling things. I'll just say "finally, it was about time!" :)

The writing was awesome like always. It's just that.. I have a feeling like (apart from the ending) nothing really happened in this book. I was expecting way more action. And like I said, apart from the ending, there really wasn't any action at all. But, it was still an enjoyable read!

So, if you're a fan of the Covenant serie, you'll definitely want to read Deity! The romance in it is fabulous and the characters are as awesome and great as always! ;)
"You need to face your fears, Alex."
I squinted, but saw nothing. "I thought you said I was fearless."
"You usually are." Suddenly, he was in front of me and his scent was driving me to distraction. "Which is why being scared now is so hard for you. Being afraid isn't a weakness, Alex. It's only a sign of something you must overcome."

"Which part of crazy are you thinking about?" I watched him over the rim of my mug, loving the way he smiled in response to the stupid things that came out of my mouth. That had to be true love, I decided.



Destination: Happily Ever After #1

You have to leave the city of your comfort
and go into the wilderness of your intuition.
What you'll discover will be wonderful.
What you'll discover is yourself. ~ Alan Alda


London, kitchen, 12.11.2012
When I was standing on the airport of Trieste hugging my mother I wanted to be brave. Instead I was crying. I actually asked myself »why do you want this? And do you really want this?« Nonetheless I steped on that plane. I felt I needed to be brave. Like, thinking it and doing it will actually make me feel it. Whatever. I landed in London and I still couldn't believe I was actually there. Holy cow, I was in London. I came back home. I sat there, waiting for the bus and I felt empty. And nervous. I steped on the bus and I started thinking, God, this is awful. What on earth am I doing?! I started thinking about everything that could go wrong and I was on the edge. I was losing it. It took me half the way to the centre to actually calm down myself. Emotional mess. No other word for it. Fitting.

And then I came to the pub where we used to go when I lived here. And I felt like I've never left at all. Which was good and weird at the same time. I felt good about everything in that moment. Home.

When Emanuela came I was so happy to see her. I've missed her so much! And the Cider! Geeez, I missed the Cider. Then we went home. We had dinner and we talked about everything and I've met the new people from the house. It was actually great. And now I am sitting in the kitchen on the same chair, on the same pillow as one year ago and I feel so out of place. Like I don't belong at all. And it's scaring the shit out of me. What am I doing?
I want to feel safe again.

London, kitchen, 13.11.2012
Today I woke up and wow. I woke up in London, how cool is that? :D So, I went to take the tube. I thought I would be going to the Bank directly but then I decided against it. I wanted breakfast. So I went to Piccadilly Circus and stood amazed by it. No matter how much time has passed – Piccadilly Circus you're still my favourite place ever. And right in that moment the screen showed one of my favourite quotes ever, the one that got me to decide everything that I am doing now – Where there is a will, there is a way. Awww, this was fate!! I went to Tesco and picked up my favourite sandwich in the whole world – cheddar and tomato. Aww <3 And Orange juice. But I didn't want to eat on the street so I decided to go to Green Park. By foot. Huh. It's still far. Well, not that far. But to my astonishment people weren't sitting on the grass and taking the sun. Ugh, the grass was empty. What a disappointment. I went to a porch and I ate my breakfast. It was so nice. 

Then I went to the Bank. I was sitting there minding my own business and I started to worry my Bank counselor wasn't working anymore. I was starting to freak out, but ok. After 20 minutes of reading Deity, a person appeared around a corner and looked at me and I said in my typically Nea voice »Hi A. I've been waiting for you«. I could actually pointed the exact moment recognition flashed in his eyes. And he smiled. And everyone stared. Lol. And then he came to me and we made an appointment for 4.30PM. I got 3 hours to spare. I said ok. 


I went to Westminister. When I came out from the tube I looked up and a smile appeared on my lips at the full glory of the Big Ben. And it's still so so beautiful. I wanted a coffee. So I went hunting down a Costa coffee. I actually walked to freaking Waterloo for a damn Caramel Latte. Ugh. And they burned my milk. I was so pissed off. I know I complicate a lot but hell, I said I didn't want it to burn. And believe me the fucking Caramel Latte did burn like hell. And I looked at the girl at the counter and said: »If I haven't told you I didn't wanted it to burn, are you willing to bet this coffee wouldn't be that hot?!« She stared and said »It's not burning.« My palm burned when I touched the freaking travel mug. Idiots. And ofcourse when I tried it I burnt my tongue. Bitch. I was seriously pissed off. And I went back to Westminister. I walked to the long-river opposite Big Ben and sat on the porch. It was so good. My legs hurt actually after all day walking around. The coffee was cooling so that was good as well. I stared at the immensity of the Big Ben and I felt happy. I just love that spot. Then I started to read my book again. After a couple of hours it was getting colder so I decided to go the Bank. I came earlier, but when A saw he motioned me to come over. And so I went. Well, I need lots of stuff to be fixed :P 
He's gonna have a lot of work to do. And after half an hour of talking fun and business he passed me a note. I was stunned for a moment until understanding drawn. It was so sweet and I was so surprised that I said (quite laud) YES, YES!! And he said ok and that he takes off at 5.05PM. I said I would waited outside. And so we went to take a drink together. It was so cool! He to me to place called The Loom (I think) and we too the drinks are we talked. I felt happy. The whole day I was thinking that I don't know noone in this awfully big city and then this? Pure happiness spreaded in my chest. We had 2 drinks. He's really nice. And then after 2 hours and half we took off. 
We came to the Oxford Street and I stopped dead. Oh.My.God. The Christmas lights? In my whole life I haven't seen so many lights and they were just perfect <3 I was actually thinking of going home, but when I saw that, I was just like, no no, I am not going home, I am going to Piccadilly Circus by walk because this is an experience I want to remember and cherish it for the rest of my life. <3 I went to Tesco and picked a Strawberry Cider and went to sit on the statue on Piccadilly Circus and I was so happy about me, about life, about everything. 

London, kitchen, 14.11.2012
You can read the recap of the Breaking Dawn Red Carpet here. After the red carpet I went to Soho and it was hilarious!! The people there are really cool and funny. And noone looked at me funny because I was there :P

London, kitchen, 15.11.2012
God, I was so tired. But still I woke up and went to Woodgreen. I was chilling out. They I went to the Charity shop and I saw the perfect dress!! I needed something nice to wear on Friday night anyway. So I bought it. I love Charity shops!! They are so freaking cheap!! In the afternoon I went to Camden Town!! And it was completely awesome! There was a Christmas Chorus and they sang Christmas songs :) I've always wanted to see it in real! I drank Hot Cider – sounds weird but it was actually really good. Kind of reminds me Hot wine :P 

Then I went to Soho again to pick a Cider. What? It's cheaper :P While I was going there I passed Piccadilly Institute and a flash of longing hit me. I so wanted to go. So I asked the security guy how much was entry. And he said – it's free now. And I was like Oh my freaking god, yes!! I went to pick that Cider and came back. I missed that place like crazy! And it was exactly like I remembered it! I met some guys who bought me drinks and it was nice. And then I saw him. OMG he was so beautiful. And I was staring. Uh huh. Then I went to him. They just came from Germany to watch a concert the next day. M and P. God, this M guy looked like he was made for me. Damn the geography. But it was fun. We drank, we danced and we had fun :) And the chemistry was so perfect you could actually see sparkles flying around hehe :P Around 3AM they closed the Club and they went to the hotel and I went to the bus station. You've got to love N29 – Jesus, I forgot how funny and hilarious people are at this bus. All the strangest people are always on this bus. Lol. It was fun!

London, London Eye Hostel, 16.11.2012
I went to the hostel on Friday. Emanuela's boyfriend was coming so she couldn't host me for the weekend. The hostel was nice and I was so tired. So I decided to just lay in bed and read Deity in the afternoon. Around 6PM I started preparing myself. I was so excited!! And the dress fit me perfectly <3 I was a little, little self-conscious, but then I reminded myself that I was awesome and I took off. I came to the Verve at 7PM. When I saw Chris I was so happy!! I missed him like crazy!! <3 <3 And he was so happy to see me too <3 And then I saw Tom!! And everything felt so right and good and it felt like I've never left at all. I love these guys like crazy. I wanted Daniel to come too. Though Tom said he wasn't coming. I was just a tiny bit sad. But I was overwhelmed with everyone and Britbound rocks! 
After an hour we took off to another club. Don't really remember the name. I meet lots of Britbounders and they were all really nice. Sara was the one who was leading us everywhere. And we were at this club and the music was kind of laud but she came and said »This is the first club experience for this guy. Lets make it unforgettable for him!« And I was like »What do you want us to go and kiss him? Because I can go and kiss him.« (he was really cute btw) lol and she was like (stunned a bit) and said »go ahead«. HAHA, and I went. You should totally have seen the face of the guy after the kiss. He was kind of shocked :P And I said »Now you really won't forget this first club experience ever« hahaha. Yeah, I'm awesome, I know :P :P And everyone was just staring with their jaw on the floor and then they started cheering and the party was getting even better. Then we went at the Zoo – God, I love this place!! They have a pool too! So I danced! :D I got to talk to Chris a while and it felt so good. I really, really missed him <3 He's just so sweet <3 And after out time at the Zoo was up we gathered outside. I was talking to Tom and then I turned and my heart almost stopped. 
I think it actually did. When I saw him I was struck. And pure happiness spreaded in my chest. Daniel <3 OMG Daniel was there <3 <3 I was so happy! The night then was just perfect :) We hugged. God, I didn't want to let go ever. My favourite three boys were there <3 I was the happiest person alive in that moment, really. Then we went to another Club. We danced. And I got to dance with Daniel!! <3 And Tom. And on the pool :D There were some guys at the pool and when I arrived there were like »yeah, yeah go ahead« and I was think – wait and see. Hihi, you should have seen their jaw dropping on the floor when I started dancing :D :D Priceless, really ;) 
And finally we went to Piccadilly Insititute <3 It was crazy fun! And then I went with Daniel and Tom to a gay club. The funny thing? They didn't let me in!! Bastards. I was so pissed off. I felt discriminated. Ugh. But I said »Ok, I won't have a fight with the security«, although I wanted to. I wanted to stay with them … bad luck I guess? I went to Trafalgar Square to wait for the bus to the hostel and to my shock the bus stop wasn't really my bus stop. Uh huh, I called the hostel asking them to help me. God help me, they sent me to Charring Cross and I got so lost. I was walking around for almost half an hour and I was getting seriously pissed off. What the hell?! And then it strucked me. I lived here for 3 months and ofcourse I knew where I needed to go. It was the other side of the Trafalgar Square. So I went and guess what? 
The bus stop was there. I felt a rush of pride and in that moment I decided I wasn't scared anymore. I can totally take care of myself. I was free.

London, Wapping, Erin's place, 17.11.2012
I made arrangements to go to Erin's place on Saturday. Wasn't actually that hard to find :P She picked me up on the station and oh god, I was so incredibly happy to see her. I missed her like crazy!! And the funny thing? We are both brunettes now :D haha the last time we were both blonde :P We chatted a lot. About everything that happened in the past year and it felt so good. In the evening we started drinking, um, Gin-coke? Don't make that face, it's actually really good ;) And around midnight we went out :) 
We went to Leicester Square and from there we went to a Club I've never been to. But it was incredible! The music was awesome and the people were great! I danced a lot :) Around 3AM the club closed and we went home. Erin's bed? God, I would marry it if I could. And her blanket? Like sleeping on a cloud. Amazing! I want one like that too <3

London, Wapping, Erin's place, 18.11.2012
Uh huh. I woke up at 4PM. Geeez. Erin was hangover and I was so tired. So we decided to just chill on the couch the whole day. It felt amazing :) And I finished reading Deity ;)



Recap of the Breaking Dawn part 2 Red Carpet UK World Premiere


HA! I was there!! :D

I woke up a little late, but nonetheless at 2PM I was at the Leicester Square. Wondering around. I met a great security guy who pointed me the way, because seriously I didn't have clue where to go. :P On my way wondering around I met a girl – Josefin – who was actually wondering around just like me. We decided  to wonder around together.

We got stuck in a cue. A.Very.Long.Cue. I've actually started praying »please, please, cut the cue behind us, cut the cue behind us«. And we went in. And at that point Josefin said »Turn around.« I did. Oh.My.Freaking.God. they actually cut the cue behind us!! Thank you!! I was really grateful. I was.

We got a fairly good spot! First row :D And then we waited. And waited some more. We met a group of 3 girls which were really nice :) We spent time together, because seriously, there wasn't anything to do than wait anyway.

Around 5.30PM finally something started happening. Woah. I was so excited! :)

First to come were the guys of UK X-factor. Wish I knew at that time who they were. I didn't. And when Ella came by and was standing right in front of me I didn't know what to say and it was awkward so I said the only thing I could think of »I love your dress« lol. She said thank you :P :P :D Then I saw that Group J – they are really gorgeous – too bad they're only 16 or something. I also saw that rest of the finalists. They seemed pretty cool.

And then there was a hell of a lot people on the red carpet. I was so pissed off. They were just in the way and I couldn't see anything. Ugh. 

And then I saw her. And I started screaming like crazy. I was really out of it. And the dress? Holy woah. She looked incredible <3 Kristen Stewart really looks good in about everything. She's just gorgeous <3

And then someone was coming from the other side of the red carpet and I looked and Oh my freaking god!! It was Jamie Campbell!! OMG I didn't even know he was coming!! And he was coming my way. I felt a bit overwhelmed. Wow. And when he was standing next to me I said »You're going to be a great Jace, Jamie«. And he said thanks and that the trailer was coming out the next day. I didn't even know :P But lets stick to the point. When I read the Mortal Instruments I imagined Jace, well, like a really strong guy. And Jamie? Girls, this guy is so freaking thin! I thought they made him work out or something to gain muscles. Apparently not. Or I don't know.



Then I saw Taylor. Same old, same old.

And Robert was nowhere to be seen. Uh huh. Everytime I thought I saw those hair I started screaming and then everyone was »Where? Where?« And then I just … »Opps. It isn't him :P« It was hilarious. But when I really saw him? I think I screamed even more than I did for Kristen!! I was like »Oh my fucking God, I see Robert freaking Pattinson!!« Yeah, like I said, overwhelming. And incredible!!


Then I saw also that chick that plays the Amazon-vampire – which I forgot her name.

Anyway the red carpet was super incredible and I had an amazing time!! Though I haven't seen the three of them up close (just about 3-4 meters) – I was pretty satisfied. I freaking saw Robert Pattinson!! <3 <3

And another thing? When they left Robert and Kristen were in the same car!! Cheating scandal my ass!! I knew it!! ;)



Ps. I know. The pictures aren't the best pictures ever. My camera sucks. And think of it that is actually new. Well. Hopefully Josefin has some better pictures :P

A good reminder

Found on Facebook.
Something I'm gonna need to remember for the time being. 

You've got to love London. It's great. It's terrifying, but at the same time, so so beautiful. 

It feels amazing to be home

Blogspiration #25

Blogspiration is a Brand Spankin' New weekly meme hosted by both GrowingUp YA and Saz101. The meme was created to help spark inspiration among bloggers, readers and writers alike. An inspirational quote/picture/video is posted weekly, on the day of the author's choosing, so that it may inspire creativity, conversation, and just a little SOMETHING.





Hello, my dear friends and readers :)

There is this quote.. It's been on my mind since I've first read it in September. I can't forget about it.

I think, I say. I have to pause and take a breath because I have not convinced him; I have failed, and this is probably the last thing they will let me say before they arrest me. 
“I think that you are the liar! I say, my voice quaking. You tell me you love me, you trust me, you think I'm more perceptive than the average person. And the first second that belief in my perceptiveness, that trust, that love is put to the test, it all falls apart. I am crying now, but I am not ashamed of the tears shining on my cheeks or the thickness of my voice. So you must have lied when you told me all those things... you must have because I can't believe your love really is that feeble.
I step closer to him so that there are only inches between us, and none of the others can hear me. 
I am still the person who would have died rather than kill you, I say, remembering the attack simulation and the feel of his heartbeat under my hand. I am exactly who you think I am.

If you read Divergent, or well Insurgent for the matter, you know what this quote is about. I just love it with all my heart. I even made a pic for it :P



Isn't the message of it amazing? I wish I was that brave when it comes to interpersonal relationships. You've got to love Tris <3

So, I am leaving tomorrow. And I am pretty nervous. 

United Kingdom here I come! :)


What's your blogspiration this week? :)
