Young and Lovely

A bit of music to help get me through a Monday morning. Especially the first day back to work after taking 5 days off.

My streets are pop music and gold

A good amount of my time in the evenings and on the weekends is spent making faces in the mirror.

This weekend, however was rather busy. It involved:
- a birthday party.
- venturing out on Record Store Day, despite not liking crowds (I made sure to go when there were no in-store performances planned, so I wouldn't have to deal with too big of a crowd.) It was still pretty insane and most of the special releases had been picked through, so I just got an import copy of the Coral's Roots and Echos, then made a hasty retreat.
- watching The Strokes at Coachella on the youtube livestream .
- freezing, despite the sunny weather.
- and pulling faces, of course.

I've been spending a lot of time lately looking through old photos and planning imaginary trips. I get in moods every once in a while where I really miss Berlin and the slightest thing can make me homesick (if that's the correct word) and close to tears (dramarama!). A while ago it was a particularly fragrant shrub that took me back immediately. Sometimes it's the smell of certain brands of cigarettes or beer.

If only I didn't have such limited vacation time. I feel like I'm not really cut out for the working world. Or maybe being an adult in general. Definitely not my strong suit.

I've stopped eating dairy and have been enjoying these delicious vegan cupcakes. They're extra good with a strawberry on top!

Despite wearing glasses since January, I still forget to put them on now and again and have left home several times lately without them, which leads to me missing my bus as I return to get them. Not a good way to start the day. This note hasn't really helped.

The weather has been rather horrible lately. Or rather it has been oscillating between nice and sunny and horrible and super rainy. And when it's rainy I just like to stay in, light my candelabra/chandelier thing and listen to music.

And speaking of music, I'm looking forward to listening to Xfm's live broadcast from the Japan Benefit gig tomorrow! I only wish I could be there in person!
