Five weeks of school left until the summer holidays kick off – I’m stoked. Okay, not so stoked about all the exams that’ll I’ll be facing within those five weeks, but snazzy things are happening in between and about. I’ll be seeing one of the sickest bands of all time on the 19th of June in Goffertpark, Nijmegen – Muse! For those of you who have only heard snippets of their music, don’t judge. I suppose it took me a while to get used to Muse’s sound, and once you do – you’ll love it, I guarantee you. On the 24th of July I’ll be going back to Thailand for three weeks to visit my fam down there. Really excited about that (: I’ll be sure to catch a couple of waves down at the beach and take loads of photos. Speaking of other things to ‘look forward to’, my 17th birthday is approaching. Five days to go, five days of being sixteen left. Loads of people think the age ’seventeen’ is shit because it’s not like your sixteenth birthday, which allows you to drink (in Holland, at least) or eighteenth birthday which permits you to drive a car. But hey, there are upsides to being seventeen. For one, you get to enjoy your last year of ‘technically’ being a teenager, get to use the excuse of being a child as much as you like because you can only use it for 365 days. You can feel ‘connected’ to the song “Seventeen Forever” by Metro Station, and well yeah .. this is me trying to be all “glass half full, not half empty” here, okay? Bought the book: “The Council of Dads” (Vaders voor mijn Dochters, in Dutch) written by Bruce Feiler. I’ve only read a small excerpt of the book so far, but I kind of love it. It’s about a young dad, diagnosed with cancer and worried about the future of his daughters. It’s heartbreakingly beautiful, pick it up from your local library if you ever come across it. Anyway, here’s Muse’s newest song: “Neutron Star Colission (Love is Forever)” which was written for the third movie of the Twilight series, Eclipse.I’m not quite sure if I like the song – I mean, well I do like the song because it’s Muse plus Matt Bellamy sounds amazing as always. Even though I like the Twilight books, I’m a little appalled by the fact that Muse specifically wrote this song for the movie. Maybe it’s just me.
