Hey there, Internet!

Monthly Post of Random Pictures / Thoughts & Questions / Links and other things that happened during the past month (or since writing last random post) and would not fit into another post…

Another busy month and here I am, wondering when I have as much time as two years ago again… Life is strange. Anyways, left: the last bits of cutting a lot length off my hair. Now they are all the same length and I can start with growing them as long as possible so only cutting the broken tips. center: Nighttime in my new flat. Shadows in my living room. right: Got my belated halloween parcel from a friend, former blogger from Australia, so happy even though most of the chocolate went to the visitor-sweets-bowl due to gluten. I remember how amazing they tasted from the past so it was really hard to resist and I forced the first person who visited to eat all of them!

Maybe these thoughts / questions would be useful as inspiration or someone knows the answer? (If none of these, hopefully at least they would be entertaining.)

list-bat-png 2017 was 50/50 so far, on the bad side I lost two people I knew who passed away and had to wave one of my closests friends goodbye who moved away 400kms and who I already know I will miss so horribly much and makes me cry even thinking about that. On the job / financial side though 2017 did start quite good, found someone who bought the rental deposit papers from my previous flat from me and talked to my bosses that I want to work an extra mini job with them for a while which brings me a step closer to the saving point in my 3-year plan.
list-bat-png Been browsing Amazon Prime for some app with a fireplace for my TV. Even though I read the ratings I managed to purchase one that broke down after only a few seconds. In the end though there are some movies that I added to my watchlist instead. Those work, often are for free and won’t break down. An 4 hour long clip is long enough as well! Do you have any recommendations for must haves on amazon prime?
list-bat-png First WGT Bands got announced and I really can’t wait for The Mission and Illuminate! From listening through the bands I did not know before Masquerade made it to my list of bands that I am hoping to see this year!
list-bat-png Complete energydrink detox strangely lead to my blood prassure rising and nose bleeding. Or at least it has been like this for the two weeks that I did not drink them.
list-bat-png My mom and I are excited for her appointment for the BRCA test that she has been waiting for nearly a year now. According to my doctors she has to get them done before they will do mine. Wondering what I am talking about? My family has a very high risk of breast cancer and since I am looking closer into my health stuff these days I decided to get a blood test done, they can see if you have a gene that causes one type of breast cancer. If this is the case you can at least do something against that bomb waiting in your body.
list-bat-png Stumbled upon a cruelty free company who specializes in skincare who, like me suffer from acne and who also do have products for scars, lines, rosacea and other skin conditions that make people be desperate. Looking forwards to my order and will do a detailed review. They do have quite high prices but if it works as good as some reviews I’ve seen promise it will be worth the money!

And here are my most favourite / inspiring posts from other blogs / websites this month:

list-bat-png Nearly no time online this month because I took extra shifts and was travelling most of the other days, sorry. Did you find some good articles?

Most played songs this month: Not much music was played except for listening through the Wave Gotik Bands and starting the playlist for that.

list-bat-png Wires and Lights – It’s not too late
list-bat-png Lebanon Hanover – Your Fork Moves
list-bat-png The Mission (feat. Ville Valo) – Met-Amor-Phosis
list-bat-png Illuminate – Apokalypse
list-bat-png VNV Nation – Tomorrow Never Comes (Reaper Remix)

What else?

list-bat-png Movies and things: Did a binge watching weekend of the Vikings series, totally love this but now I am afraid there might not be much more episodes? I also enjoyed ‘Automata’ but that probably was no surprise, post apocalyptic or zombie movies, always!
list-bat-png Books: Still re-reading my job related books but did add like a million of dark / horror / gothy adult drawing books to my amazon wishlist as well as pencils. I somehow want to also use 2017 to get more creative again, easiest way and required for most things (like creating sculptures, clothes,…) would be drawing, so here’s a start I guess!

What has been inspiring for you this January? Any plans for February? Have a nice evening!
