One Step Closer!

So today I got the result from the English test, and I passed. So now there is nothing standing between me and London. I still have a lot to plan and organize but this is one less thing. I will spend this beautiful sunny weekend with friends, without worries, and start thinking practical again on Monday.

From The Treasure Box

One of the things I also had time to do for Easter, was looking through old pictures of my grandparents and their family and friends. I found many really good ones, that I have added to my collection of old pictures, but I think this was my favorite.
I don't really know who this is, but on the back someone wrote " I have curls, just like my father"

Trip, trap, Træsko!

I have talked about leaning to play the Harmonica for a while. And before I went to Denmark I got this little key chain with only 4 chords. Then as I was looking through my old treasures I found my old Harmonica from when I was a child, and today Vincent gave me this really big one. So now I have 3 different to practice on. So this afternoon I took my first YouTube harmonica lesson, and I am exited. Maybe I will be able to use it for our performance this Thursday.

A Lovely Easter!

Besides cleaning out my old things doing Easter, I had some time to relax and enjoy time with family and some friends.
When I arrived at Copenhagen I spend the night at Ulla's, and the next morning she invited me to have brunch where she works.
I meet up with other friends
 Had nice Easter dinner with my family

Celebrated an early Mothers day

drew on eggs Easter morning

and went for a walk in the beautiful spring weather.

Trip Down Memorylane!

I spend some of the easter time by cleaning out some things from my parents basement. It is always such a thrill to do stuff like that, and always end up taking more hours than planed, because it is so fun to go though all the things you forgot you had.
Especially old photos and diaries, day planners and other stuff that tell you about the way you once were.
 I found old books that I made

and pearls in different colors and shapes

 The Easter bunny plus 1000 other small glass and porcelain animals, enough to make a tiergarten
A cute knitted doll
and my Polypocket collection

Just Cause I Am Not A Child, Doesn't Mean That I Can't Play With Dolls!

As an inspiration to our weaving Claudia brought a book to work, about children dolls in the balkan area. I really liked that almost all of the dolls looked like they were made by the kids who owned them, and that they had a certain simplicity despite of the multicolored pattern on their outfits. The pictures really inspired me, and made me wanted to try and make my own dolls. I don't really know what to use them for, but it is somehow nice just to do something for the pleasure of it rather than thinking to much about the aim. I now made the first one, and I don't know how many there will be, but it will definitely not be my last one.

I Have Sinned!

As I had to wait 3 hours between the written and spoken part of the English test I passed the time at the area around Alexanderplatz. I went to H&M to by stockings and came out with more than it was intentioned. I did decide not to buy anymore things while I am in Berlin, so walking into H&M when seasons are changing might not be the smartest thing to do.
I thinks my Polka dot obsession might be getting a little out of hand, but I could not resist buying this gorgeous t-shirt.

My excuse is that it is not only polka dots but half polka dots as well.

I wanted a pair of shorts like this for a long time, and the color matches perfect with the dots on the t-shirt.
They even have cute ruffles, like an old pair of ladies underwear.

The best part is about this outfit is that it will go so well together with the sandals I got last year.

Why Do I Have To Do This When I Rather Be Outside?

Today I felt like I took a jump back in time. Back to 9th grade midterms and finals. And now I remember why I hate it so much. I had to take an English test to prove to the university in London that I am able to follow the courses in English.
Most of my friends already said to me that I would do well, and I do speak English every day, but I am not at all a literate person. I somehow fell like that some of the things in the test would even be hard for a native English speaker, who is also not very literate.
I am crossing my fingers, arms and legs that the result is at least good enough to get me into school.

Room With a View!

I don't know if the fact that I am getting a bit sick, is caused by the acupunture I started this Monday or it is the fluctuating weather that for the moment causes me to wear too little clothes.
But right now my roommate is out of town and I have the flat to my self, so tonight I don't mind that I need to stay indoors and try to get better. Instead of going out I will enjoy the beautiful view of spring from my kitchen window while listening to some nice music and drinking heiße Zitrone mit honig.

The sun makes me want to loose my shoes and jacket.

All day long I have been outside.
First I lay in the park with my morning coffee. Later I went to Teals to sit in the sun, on the rooftop of her courtyard together with her and Elisabeth. I brought my knitting stuff as I am making a new pullover, that I can almost not wait to finish. When the sun was gone from the yard we went to get ice cream.
After I went to Club de Visionaire to meet up with Stine and her friend Martin. And we sat and had a drink while enjoying the sunny day and the music.

I been listening to this new song from the Fleet Foxes. Every time I listen to their music I feel like I am back at Roskilde Festival 2009. Their music reminds me of summer and I always get in a good mood when I listen to them.
I think I will go and get a ticket for their concert here in Berlin, tomorrow on my way home from work.

The Memories of Others!

Last night I was at an exhibition opening. Etienne Allaix, the artist found a lot of old photos, and cut them through to remove the faces in the pictures to create a universal memory, rather than a personal one. I really liked it. The old photographs for sure, but also the idea, though I don't think that I could do it myself. I love buying old photographs at the fleamarked, but the main reason I do so, is because I find the people on them inspiring, despite of the fact that I don't know them.

The Heart Collection!

I don't know why, but every time I see a heart on the ground I feel like taking a picture.

Spring is officially on, and I have been sitting in a park all day reading a book, without my shoes on.
