A new city,
A new home,
A new blog.
First of all,, let me tell you what I've been up to lately. I had a looong summer break, and still it feels like it just flew by in a second. I went to a bunch of festivals, met a bunch of new people and more importantly maybe, I did my entry exam for College and... Passed!
As of from September 15, I'm an official student Graphic Design at the Royal Academy for Fine Arts in Ghent. I have to say, it really isn't easy, but I'm enjoying myself, and that's what important, right?
Also, I now have my own little place in the heart of Ghent and I've met a bunch of amazing new people. I've had something to do every evening since I got here and I really do quite love it. I even met a guy I really like. In short, things are going great.
And to make things even better, I have a brand new iMac and this baby is truly amazing.
Really... I think things have never been better..
And I think I might post some of my work really soon.
Keep your mind shut but your eyes open.
What's the best concert you've ever been to?
I'm happy to say that I've been to quite a few concerts over the last few years (2 years to be exact), and in those years I've gathered a bunch of amazing memories.
It's hard to form an oppinion on what was trully the best show, because every band I saw had this unique thing going on, that maybe not made them better than other bands, but it made them different.
But if I have to make a choise, I would go for the Daft Punk gig I saw in August 2006. Not only was it an amazing lightshow, the atmosphere was undescribable. To be standing there with some 50,000 people, rocking out, dancing and jumping the night away was trully an expiercince of a lifetime. Add the fact that they rarely play any gigs at all, and the fact that was at my favourite festival, only make things better. It's a night I'll never forget.
The last few days have been so tiring. I hate exams, but really, who doesn't? I hate looking at 500 stupid pages of economics when I know I'm never gonna use it again. Yesterday, I actually studied! Yeah yeah.. I usually don't don't study until it's the very last moment, and even then it's blah... I hate studying.
A part of my can't wait to be done with high school and to go to university (and go study some more.. -_-), and another part of me doesn't want it to be done. I'm growing up to fast. And well, another part of me just wants to quit school all together, I'm so fucking sick of it all. But I won't quit. My mom won't let me anyway. Just 7 more months and I'll be done with high school (hopefully) and I'll be doing something that I want to do. I wanna get a job in the music bizz, but I don't really know yet what.
Anyway, today was long and tiring. I finished studying most of my economics around 8, but I'm gonna to redo everything later tonight and tomorrow morning. I just hope that I pass, even if it's just a 50%, I don't really care that much anyway.
And my headache is killing me.
Today, wasn't another good day.
But I feel like everything's going to be OK.
Woop, first offcial journal entry, aren't we all excited?
Yesterday, a I went to a show with 3 local bans playing. A lot of the people in the bands (more like almost all) go to my school or just graduated last year.
First band's lead singer is one of my friends, he happens to be in artschool with me. This was the... 3rd time I saw them live and they've really improved. And because I'm cool, I got the set list after the show ;)
Band is called Momma's Message.
Second up was another friend of mine. She's a solo artist and she even released a CD, called 'Inspiration' this year. She's really talented, and I can see her going big some day. And yet again, because I'm cool, she gave me a guitarpick after the show. She goes by the name of 'Eva'. (which is her name, duh :p)
Last and certainly not least, was 'Avus'. I've seen them live about 5 times now, and I really like them! They're quite punk/rock ish and they've got some songs that really make you wanna.. eh.. I'd say dance, but it's leaning more towards mosh. The lead singer, Thomas is hott, so even if you don't like their music, they're still fun to look at. Funny fact: the band's bassplayer is a teacher at my school, and was my maths teacher some years ago. He's such an idiot (in a terribly good way :D)
After the show, me and my friend Kim hung out outside for a while. We weren't quite drunk, but leaning towards it :p It was fun anyway. I invented a new kind of dance (hellzyeah!) We went back to my place, and she spent the night here. We just talked all night, and it was fun! We actually made a bet. Seeying how we both go to festivals a lot, we agreed that the first one that ends up in another boys tent, gets some sort of prize (we haven't decided on what yet)
We all know I'm gonna win that bet though :p We talked about festivals a lot, and all that talking about it makes me even more excited for the new festival season (which starts witht the Polsslag indoor festival in Hasselt). I can't wait!!
Tomorrow, I have school but it's only a few more days till my exams, so that should be funny (I'm not exactly a great student).
I'll update soon,
Music, It's my life.
I breath & live music.
The feeling you get when you go to a show is just undescribable.
I love it.
And when I 'grow up', I'm gonna do something in the musicbizz.
