Here a pic of me and F. This saturday we are going for one day to the Rock Werchter festival. It is going to be so much fun! Hopefully the weather is nice. Yesterday the weatherman predicted it will be very hot this saturday, but today the forecast predicts rain and lightning and thunderstorms! That's not what I orderd!! Well, we will see ;-). Can't do anything about it and today it's just tuesday, so a lot can still happen (fingers crossed).

Just read this post about the one year anniversery of MJ's death. Think it is written perfectly. Just wanted to share it with you guys..
Have a nice weekend! The sun if finally shining over here. Unfortunately I have to work on college stuff for one last weekend.. But tonight I'm finally going to see The Fantastic Mister Fox, so no need to feel sorry for me ;-)!!

Last saturday I went with J. to the concert of Muse. So amazing! One of my favourite bands of all time! And lucky me is also going to see them at Sziget festival. Jeeh! Last week they also announced that Mika will perform at Sziget, so dubble Jeeh ;-)!
Btw, I can not believe a year has gone so fast already. I can remember writing this post like it was yesterday. Accactly one year ago I went out to dinner in a fancy restaurany with some of my girls. Tonight we are going to do the same. This time we are going to restaurant Le Relais in Amsterdam. Can't wait! Last year was amazing. Loved it so much! It was so much fun to see all my friends alle dressed up. We felt so awkward. Not comfortable at all with all those up tied people surrounding us. One of the courses was an oyster. I had never eaten one before and hope I won't ever have to eat one for the rest of my life ;-). I HATED it! Almost threw up haha. Now it sounds like a horrible evening, but I think it's a great anecdote and now I know what an oyster tastes like (BAD!) ;-)..
Unfortunately we forgot to bring a camera then, but tonight one of my friends will bring one so we can make fun pictures :-).
It's also accactly one year ago that MJ passed away! We were in the car driving back from the restaurant when we heard the news that there were rumours MJ could be dead. So surreal. When I got home I woke my dad up and told hem the news. It's not like we were fan of the guy and his music (except from the my friend F. ofcourse), but ofcourse he was an icon and the news really hit us. A couple weeks later I went with my friend J. to NY and people were still walking in MJ t-shirts. It was a strange atmosphere. Sigh, time really flies..

Sorry for the lack of updates! Only 4 weeks to go and then it's finally time to enjoy the summer! For now the only things I do is working at my internship (like always), going to the gym (since last monday, and Ohw MY!, do I have a sore body! I think that's a sign it was time to get into action ;-)!) and watching the World Championship. Holland played last monday and altough it wasn't great, we won, so go us ;-)!!

And there he was again. My secret lover. Ok, now I sound like a freak. I'm sorry ;-).. A. and I wanted to have a good spot for Mika so we went a hour earlier to the stage. It was just in time, because after we came there it got very crowded.
At the end of the concert she came back on the stage and got into these ropes and flew over the crouwd! So cool! I knew she did that in her shows, but I didn't expect her doing this at festivals. But well, no mountain is big enough for Pink as you can see ;-)!
Loved the festival! Already looking forward to Rock Werchter in a couple of weeks and ofcourse Sziget in August :-)!

Me acting silly :-)
The show of Green Day. Also a high light! I didn't expected much of it and thought that 2 hours would be a very long time, but from the moment the concert started I loved it! The singer is really energetic and funny. Every song was fun and it wasn't a moment dull. At the end there was a lot of firework and twice we thought it was over, but then they came back on the podium again and played more songs. So great! It was a lovely night..

On this hill al lot of people watched the festival for free. Quite cool if you live in that area and you can just chill and enjoy the music like this. On the other hand, if you live nearby you would buy an actual ticket right?
The Gossip. She was so nice! We couldn't see her well unfortunately, because it was so crowded in the tent, but we did hear her loud and clearly. She was great! And after every song she thanked the audience in Dutch with the sweetest girly peep voice.
It was amazing! Rammstein was already THE band I was thrilled about before the festival and the gig itself was even better than I hoped for. It's not like I'm always listening to their music or so (I'm not a scary chick ;-)..), but I do like to hear it once in a while. I think their songs are high larious.
The performance was also high larious. They made a sketch of themselves. Before the concert started and everyone was waiting for them their was a huge black curtain infront of the podium. Then their was a loud bang and the curtain dropped. Everyone expected to see the band, but instead of the band their was a new curtain. This time it was the German flag. So funny! The relationship between the Dutch and the Germans is still a bit tence (Just a little bit! But you can't deny it's not), so cheering for the German flag was a bit weird but oh so funny, because it feels a bit wrong haha. Then that curtain also dropped and the concert started. The lead singer had a butcher apron on and a little light in his mouth. Wrong, so wrong. I know! That's why I loved it! And like this the show went on and on and on.
He had a big role in the show. Funny guy. At first I thought he was so scary looking (all in leather), but after a while he changed into a glitter suit and made the weirdest movements. FUN!

So, i have to confess. I'm al little bit in love..
I've seen Mika now twice in real life and I think he's adorable!
Now i just stumbled across this clip and altough I can't hear the music (I'm at my internship right now), it cought my eye. And I have to say that those glasses look stunning on him! Makes him even more sexy ;-)!

This makes my happy!
“Let’s Colour is a worldwide initiative to transform grey spaces with colourful paint.
This 2 minute global film was shot by multi-award winning director Adam Berg over four weeks in Brazil, France, London and India. Every location is real and they remain transformed by a palette consisting of 120 different colours. The people in the film are not actors, they are real people who rolled up their sleeves to transform their community with colour.”

After watching this clip I even more wish it was already summer. Not that the sun doesn't shine here. It actually finally does. Only I can't enjoy it because I'm indoor like all the time :-(. Well, only 6 weeks to go and then it's finally time to do absolutely nothing!
