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!

Hey there, Internet!

Last monthly post of the year, last whatever post of the year on justkeepbrains.com, looking forwards to a more active 2017, hopefully without any breaks, with some interesting topics and I will try my best to really add the youtube contents that I’ve planned so many times before, same with my etsy shop… Enjoy your New Years eve, I hope you can spend it with the people you love and see you in a hopefully less negative year 2017!

left: working on my chainmail dress again, put on too much weight since I started working on it a few years ago so starting over. center: my opinion on 2016. right: amazingly bright rainbow, guess December already shows how good 2017 CAN become!

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 Dyeing / bleaching back to platin blonde bit by bit (roots and a few streaks at once) and so far am happy with how my hair reacts to the bleach. Already feel more like myself again and please, someone remind me if I ever want to dye black that I did not like it, that I looked like my mom (as mentioned before, nothing against her but I don’t have to look like a younger version of an already existing person)
list-bat-png I saw a documentation where someone said that when fashion industry introduced standard sizes it was the actual start of people feeling bad in their bodies because they usually would simply not fit 100% so something on their bodies always would be too thin, too wide, too whatever.
list-bat-png Signed up for amazon prime, sometimes I just don’t have enough time to drive to the dvd store and while there probably is nothing that annoys me as much as regular TV sometimes you just need moving pictures instead of music and sometimes my laptop only wants a few programs to be open at the same time-
list-bat-png Did a trip to Berlin with one of those car sharing portals, this way it was cheap and ‘ok’ so probably will do this sometimes again (update: two trips are planned for January)! And yes, it felt good to be in Berlin and I had really nice company, movies and great food!

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

list-bat-png The herdless witch launched her ebook, sons and daughters of perdition
list-bat-png Bane from Goth it yourself did a great post about her thoughts on blogging that got me and a lot of other people thinking…

Most played songs this month:

list-bat-png Sex Gang Children – Sebastian
list-bat-png L’ame Immortelle – Stern
list-bat-png Anne Marie Hurst – Your Eyes
list-bat-png Cynical Existence – I’m broken
list-bat-png Agonoize – Femme Fatale

What has been inspiring for you this December or 2016 in general? Any plans for January / 2017? Have a nice evening, see you next year! Please remember when celebrating with fireworks that it can be pretty scary to animals, maybe there is a way you can reduce it?

left: three decisions in one picture – growing out the tiny bits in front of my ears because after a month of not shaving my sides I already have some cms there, then going blonde again AND the dermal anchor will stay, I have to find my bat again though! center: the cave starts looking like a home. There still is a lot to do but some spots are already decorated! right: And even more candles!

list-bat-png Another month of not-so-active blogging, I really am working on this, main reason will be posted soon in a mid-moving-video and post! I don’t know what is happening this year, usually my house moving things were done within shortest amount of time but this year I seem to not be able to finish that fast. Same with the Halloween parcels I always send to my friends, this year they probably will arrive in time for New Year, 2016 what are you doing?!
list-bat-png There is that communitiy site for german goths (Schwarzes Glück) I seem to have deleted my old account but started a new one, definitely need to get to know some people in my new home area. Of course, clubbing is great for that but I don’t have many weekends off so need another way as well – plus I also like to spend time with people inside their or my cave, cozy, laughing, watching DVDs, playing games, drinking Absinthe and those people often won’t go clubbing a lot!
list-bat-png So the TV-hater inside of me started watching some TV, at least on those days when I did enough to not be able to move to the DVD player to change the DVD or to grab a book or do whatever, those moments at the end of a day when you only stand up because you really need to use the bathroom and then try to decide if you want to head to the couch or bed afterwards.
list-bat-png Restarting my chainmail dress, guess it won’t hurt to add a few cms in case the weightloss will not happen fast enough.
list-bat-png Proving I am not the best person with technical things: before I got internet access in my new flat I only had my phone to make a few calls or for the Facebook messenger to keep in contact with friends and family. Then it wanted me to enter my PIN, I thought it was for unlocking the screen. Instead it was because of an update, in mid update the phone froze, I could not do anything at all, lost all my data, was not able to contact anyone and felt completely lost. This made me feel quite dependent on my phone. Need to write down the contacts to some piece of paper I guess in case this will ever happen again.

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

list-bat-png So there seem to be quite some cute videos on goth lately but the one I saw on nerdyinla (A brief history of goth) was the best Ive seen for a while, made me laugh!
list-bat-png I feel bad that I was one of the reasons why Cookies shopping ban wasn’t as successful in the end 😄

Most played songs this month:

list-bat-png Anne Marie Hurst – Set me free
list-bat-png L’âme Immortelle – The Cleansing (Voidian Cleansing Remix by Beyond the Void)
list-bat-png 18 Summers – Girl of 18 Summers
list-bat-png Engelshunger – Dass Ich Dich Nicht Lieben Darf
list-bat-png Faderhead – Beautiful Freak

What has been inspiring for you this November? Any plans for December? Have a nice evening!

left: I knew this was going to cause me a lot of pain but I could not resist trying this black burger king thing… center: another in-mid-of-moving selfie and somehow I feel the need to go back to platinum blonde, nearly black hair makes me look like my mom, nothing against her though. right: even though I barely had any time there still were some nice moments close to nature, whee autumn!

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 Seems I have VERY bad luck with The Cure. First bought a ticket for Cologne, that crashed with my holiday schedule at my old job so I sold it and got a new one for Stuttgart but since I start my new job November, 1st I will miss that one as well but could make it to the Cologne show so I am thinking about buying another ticket for that show.
list-bat-png Enough Blogging breaks, first one was because I found myself being thrown into friendzone which got me down pretty much and then, on my way to recover there was the moving to Oldenburg related stress from hell. Now, hoping to focus on my blog and on the good things in life again. Party anyone? or going to some concerts? Cozy Absinte, Gaming or DVD nights? Exploring nature, cemeteries or ruins? Count me in!
list-bat-png So my favourite German Goth magazine changed the added CD to a download thing for Spotify. That CD with new bands that I might love and start to follow actually was one of the main reasons to buy that magazine. I refuse to join Spotify and the like, buy all my music on itunes or on CD, converting them to itunes. Pretty sad. I know that there is no money involved for the bands with those CDs BUT I usually did find one or two bands to follow and to support (as in concerts, buying cds, merch or mentioning the names). Probably not going to buy that magazine as often anymore, something simply is missing now. (Update: seems they brought the CD back after one issue already!)
list-bat-png Tried to update my new adress for my mobile contract and received a text message that they received my letter of cancellation. Phone support was not helpful as well and seemed to be the most confused and distracted person to talk to. Then their facebook page sent me a link to the live chat support where they seemed to be able to help me, finally. Maybe this was a sign that I should cancel though?
list-bat-png Managed to get the unanswered comments on my blog down to 50 again – Promise to catch up asap and bring you new content, but I will have no internet connection in my new flat before th 8th of November.

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

list-bat-png Our dear professor asked bloggers and darklings to help a fellow blogger who just recently lost everything in a fire. No matter how you could help (spending clothes, money, sharing the story) it would be great ❤
list-bat-png Fledermausbrille.de has some new colors for shades in stock, lovely duochromes to maybe match your hair?

Most played songs this month:

list-bat-png Cynical Existence – Dead Eyes
list-bat-png Deine Lakaien – Deathraft
list-bat-png Lucyfire – You can have all my love tonight
list-bat-png The Mission – Deliverance
list-bat-png Reaper – She is a Devil and a Whore
