I’m broke but I had fun

Hello eveybody!

It’s been a while again 😦 March was pretty busy. Lots of classes, projects and stuff. But it was also a very fun month… I had a lot to look forward to and that is what I want to share with you guys!

As I mentioned a couple of times before, I am not a person to go to clubs and parties. The thing I do like very much is going to concerts. Which you might have noticed as well. This month I’ve been to 3, yes 3 concerts and they were AMAZING!

first one up is the performance of Nicolas. Nicolas is a magician who became famous on Belgium’s Got Talent. Later on he got his own tv-show. And this year he did live performances in ‘small town’ theatre. (because magic is more fun up close). He was amazing! Mostly it were basics tricks with a twist which gives it actually a pretty big ‘wow’-effect. The only thing I didn’t like as much was the audience participation. I was scared to dead that he was going to pull my up on stage. 1/3 of the show I felt panic. But still really really great!! (sorry no pics of this one)

A week later came the concert I never knew I needed or even come to Belgium. “Harry Potter and the Philosopher Stone IN CONCERT”. I am a massive Harry Potter fan (which I will prove again later this post). I was looking forward to this moment from the minute I bought the tickets. My sister and her friend and my best friend ans me got on the train to Antwerp.

And that was quite a story. A probably drunk man started yelling at us (in Italian we guesses) because we were talking to each other. For a whole hour he did so. When we got of the train he followed us through the station. And because of the terror alarm here, there were army guys. We told them and they immediately when to check on him. Thank you, army guys!!

The concert itself was just unbelievable! our conductor was such a funny guy. He told us to feel free to cheer for our favorite house or favorite character as much as we wanted. The first immense cheer was for Mister Olivander, but the biggest introduction cheer was for non other than Professor Severus Snape. We all cheered when first years were put in our houses, we cheered at the quidditch match. It was so much fun, and because of that it really felt as if you were actually IN the movie! Just MAGICAL!

And then there was the moment I’ve been waiting for almost 3 years! Lindsey Stirling finally returned to belgium with the Brave Enough Tour! I’ve been stalking her social media for so long and this month she came back. And I only cried 3 times. I was accompanied by my ‘equally obsessed with Lindsey Stirling’ – friend. It was so so so perfect, even better than I had imagined. If you don’t know her look her up!

Lindsey Striling is a dancing violist. her music is a mix of dubstep and pop (I think, I don’t know that much about music). But she danced almost all the time along with her back up dancers. Throughout the show she shared stories, personal stories, the meanings of her songs. She is such a strong person and a fighter. it was funny too, the whole band played some song on toy instruments, how cool is that! She is amazing and I don’t think any concert will ever top this one. AND she actually stood 3 meters away from my, I could’ve touched her if I wanted, but she was playing so I couldn’t.
crying moments: when it started – one of the stories she told – the encore song

And then last but definitely not least. Because surprisingly enough within a month I made friends, like actual friend I don’t have to put effort in to like. How come, you ask? They love Harry Potter as much as I do! We all went to FACTS together, cosplaying as HP character (rather poorly, only had a month to prep, because we’ve been friends for only a month). FACTS is the Belgian Comic Con, and it was my first time. I felt like a toddler in a theme park. I was so happy!

If any Belgian people are reading this, and went to Facts on saturday, we were the people handing out compliments to every one :p Such a Hufflepuff thing to do

Well this was a very long post, sorry about that. Anyway hope you liked it. I have a feeling this post isn’t organised at all… oops, I will revise it soon

read y’all later

Concerts and Shopping!!

Hey there!

And now again, too late, I know. more than a week!! AAAH! Why can’t I do this properly. But Life goes on, even if you suck at it. So lets forget it and write some more!

Except for school my last 2 weeks were rather empty and not interesting at all. But luckily for me we have Fall Break (don’t know if that’s an official term in english, probably not, but that’s how it’s called). And vacation means, in that little bit of free time you have between doing homework, you can go do some actual fun stuff. 

And the best thing to start a vacations is a concert! Yep, that always sets off the vacation very well. Last Saturday, I went to a OneRepublic concert! WHOOP WHOOP! My mom, my sister and I all together, making the family bound even stronger :p
Like always I wasn’t really pleasant company in the car, as I was sleeping the moment we drove of the ramp. Moving vehicles make me really tired, I don’t know why, is that normal?
When we arrived… PIZZA… it’s tradition. Never break tradition, especially when it involves food.

When we finally made it inside, we still had more than enough time left. And we realised “Why do we always come so early?”. Thank God for smartphones, though, they make waiting so much easier!
8 o’clock exact the support act started KONGOS! Objectively good band, music was good. It was a little weird that one of the guitarist had no shoes on :/ My mom absolutely loved them, the first thing she did the next morning was youtube them (she even posted a facebook status about them! My mom… on facebook :o). I like them, but it’s just not my genre of music. Not a major fan!

But then ONE REPUBLIC!! Months of asking and pleading to go, my amazing mom go us tickets (mostly because she wanted to go herself, but who cares :p). They were amazing, I’m so in love with their songs. they’re so amazing live. Ryan Tedder is so active on stage. Always jumping and turning around. involving the crowd. Everything was so good. they did do a lot of covers, which I wasn’t really excited about. Don’t get me wrong, they nailed them as well, but it would’ve been even better with more of their own songs. But hey, they could even sing a Hannah Montana song and make it sound incredible!

I didn’t take much pictures, I was enjoying the performance 😀

And then another activity to enjoy the vacation is SHOPPING! Everybody knows how that goes, so not much to explain here. My friend and I went to Antwerp today! yaay.

ME + BFF + SHOPPING = FOOD, CLOTHES and LAUGHS!

And this is what I bought!

Oh yeah, one more thing! If anyone has some ideas for the lay out of my blog, tell me, because I’m not quite happy about this one and I don’t know what to do ;( HELP ME PLEASE 😮

I hope you like it, if there are any question about something, feel free to ask! 🙂
