Musical month

I wouldn't say I've been ''crazy busy'' this month, like I always say I am, but I've had loads of stuff on my mind lately.
What do I do when I have loads to think about?
I drown my thoughts in awesome music, of course.

What I listen to depends on my mood and what I need to listen to.
I have specific albums for specific moods, which I know sounds a bit strange, but I'll give you a few examples:

When I feel a little depressed and down, I always pull out my I'm Not Dead album from Pink.
It has gotten me through some pretty dark days and it still is a lifesaver when things get rough.
When I'm feeling angry/frustrated, Rage Against The Machine's debut album from 1992 (which is FANTASTIC), are one of my favorites to listen to.
I do sometimes also throw in some random tracks by Godsmack, Marilyn Manson, Rammstein and Atreyu.
It's a nice way to get out some aggression.
Even better if I'm playing Mortal Kombat or Tekken at the same time as the music is playing.

If I were to describe the mood I've been in lately, I wouldnt even know where to begin.
I've been loving a very unlikely album.
I've never been a fan of hers, but this is a brilliant album.
I can't remember why I bought it, but I don't regret it at all.

Are you like me when it comes to music, and what albums do you listen to when you're in certain moods?
Feel free to share in a comment :)

Letters to Juliet

A friend at work let me borrow a bunch of dvd's and one of them was Letter to Juliet with Amanda Seyfried.
She is so adorable and I've been a fan of hers for a few years, so I try to keep up with her movies.
The movie in an eggshell:
Sophie goes on a vacation with her fiance to Verona, Italy.
She then finds a love letter, which was written 50 years ago, and she decides to reply.
Little does she know that she'll end up looking for someone's long lost love, and maybe even find her own.

Such a cute story, told in a very unexpected way.

It makes me want to believe that true love really do excist.
That there is someone for everyone.
I've never been the hopeless romantic, but I've always loved the idea of ''the one''.
So we'll see what happens in 2012.
If I end up finally giving my ''I do'' to my long distance fiance.
Only time will tell :)

(Hope he doesn't get pissed off because of this post)
I love you <3

Hello 2012!

So apparently, it's been almost a month since my last post.
My excuse is mainly me being busy and a tiny bit of me being lazy.

I uploaded a vlog on my youtube channel about a week ago about my goals and stuff for this year.
Here's the link

For me, 2011 was a messy year, so I hope 2012 will have some form of clarity and change.
Even though I had a pretty insane start to this year, I could feel that something would be different.
That something good would finally come along and get me out of this craphole I'm in.

I'm keeping my fingers crossed and hoping that this year will be the year of change.
