i´m doing extra hours at work! right on time... i´m trying to save some money to find permanent accommodation and this will help a lot. i´ve been moving around for over a year already and it´s getting exhausting and frustrating, as it is no longer a choice.

also, i had to conver the activities leader yesterday to take student to the guinnes storehouse (i know, what a sacrifice ) and today one of them gave me "10" on his feedbak , which is actually to rate the teachers. very nice of him and totally unexpected, i love interacting with students!

Hmm not my fav drawing ever, I'm afraid
But to each his own

Today I discovered that walking around with a silly smile on my face all day is the best way to handle and annoy my employer, who apparently decided to make my life a bit (a lot) more difficult. (okay, it's a passive aggressive smile, but still, it's working )

No problem Caro,
like you wrote "to each his own".

Today I smile because I'm on holiday,
and in a few days I will be in Ireland !

Two things. First, I keep forgetting that the internet isn't exactly a private place, so I'm handing out accidental compliments all the time (well, it's better than accidental insults, I guess )

Secondly, while cleaning out my files I found an old document on my computer, named 'notetoself' and it contained some useful advice.

The gig was amazing! loved every second of it.
I have heaps of photos but I can't share them until they're published, and they're making me wait. (it's making me very impatient)

Not today but last Friday I was so so happy to see Lucy Rose live in Cologne for the first time. She is so talented and her voice is just heaven to my ear .Playing mostly new songs but she and her band were locked in and sounded wonderful.

After the show I came to her and we chatted a bit (a little awkward though, I usually forget what to say while meeting my favourite artists ) ). I like her a lot because she seems to be very nice as a person, no sight of arrogance at all even though I know as a artist she is very talented, writing all the songs & playing most of the instruments herself in the new album. She even has her own tea flavour and chocolate selling as merchandise (how cute is that), but unfortunately I didn't see any that night

Got a warm hug from her afterwards. She's even smaller than I've imagined her to be. And cuter ) She asked me if I want to take a picture, and when we took it, she wasn't satisfied with the pic so she asked for a retake that she tried to stand on her toes to get higher )

Such a nice memory. The price of concert tickets has gone up so fast lately so for me, a student still, I can't go to every gig I like, but when it's this good, I always think it's worth the money

Lovely!
Coincidentally I saw her on Saturday in Brussels.
She's very cute and tiny indeed. Great gig but it was sold out and it got so stuffy and hot in there that I had to leave early.
(I have some photos on my website, but i feel like i've been spamming my pics here a lot already, so i won't post them here )
