It's been more than two years since I've been active in here. Quite scary.
I probably won't really return, real life takes surprisingly much space right now. I'm mostly happy. I've spend a year in Finland as an exchange student and gained many experiences and learned a new language and got to know a new culture. But it still feels nice to be back home in Germany with my family and friends. I'm at a new school where I feel very comfortable, my grades are good, it's still some time until graduation and until I have to consider what else to do with my life, as so far I don't have any plans at all. I still suck at art and barely ever write anymore, although both are my passions still. Just never have time and inspiration seems to be taken by homework and late nights working. Hmm...
I hope you are all doing good! I might be sneaking around here a bit more sometimes, but no promises. We'll see!

It's funny how much I care.
It makes me happy, somehow. In a weird way. 8D
For a while.

My huge Harry Potter project:
"Re-read all the books, re-watch all the movies and re-play all the games you own of the Harry Potter series. Start with the first book, and after you've finished it, watch the first movie, and afterwards, play the first Harry Potter PC game, and then continue everything of this with the second until you've finished it with all 7 books, all 8 movies and all the games you own."
It's going on rather well. I'm playing the second game currently.
Nah, I'm not insane, absolutely not~
I would've known already whether I'd be taken by the organisation I want to go to Finland/Chile/Argentina with and which country it would be, but Tuesday I got a call from YFU saying, my school certificate wouldn't be there. Wtf? I've given it to my teacher in October, who confirmed to have sent it shortly after. And now it's gone lost just like that?! Awesome. Now I have to be after that again, and I'll have to quiver a whole lot more until I'll FINALLY receive that letter telling me whether to go, and if so, where to go.
Which. would. be. so. f'cking. amazing.
Other than that, life's pretty stressful. Birthday gifts. Christmas gifts. Exams. Homework. Unbearable coldness. Snow. Running for buses. Christmas christmas christmas everywhere. And now I haven't even opened my chocolate Advent calendar the last two days. Uwrgh.
I haven't seen my name on any of your Christmas gift checklists, but don't feel bad for that. I understand, who actually still knows my name on here besides a handful of people? :] I dunno whether I'll be able to do anything for you, too. I'm so stressed with gifts for IRL people already, and I'm not an artist and I can't draw, and since I'm only able to create halfway decent pictures when I put a HELL LOT of work into it, it'll be very unlikely that I'll get to do so many pictures which I would want to draw because you're all so amazing. And people could feel left out and uwrgh. I just don't know.
And now I'm fooled because I'm trying to explain things here to calm some minds when NOBODY EVEN EVER READS THIS ahaha. That's just pathetic.

TEFc drama is awful.
I won't speak my mind but I'm watching and it's not making me happy.
Haven't been in-forest again. I'm terrible aren't I. But exam follows exam over here, it's really not funny. Will try to come on more often after they're all done, more or less.
my birthday's in 6 days and I just loathe it.
I guess it'll be just like any other day, but probably even worse.
I want to receive this letter about my year abroad with a confirmation about going to Finland. That's really all I want right now.
[11/02/10] [04:51 pm]
Oh my gosh. I won.
-feels so lucky-
This competition was important to me, it was perfect, and I love this band so much and it made so happy that I actually, in fact, really, without doubt, won. :')
Family meeting this weekend was great. My family's so huge, you don't believe it! And I love every single one of them, they're all awesome. I even had some fun playing with all the little childs of my cousins. Yeah, kids can be cute.
Mhm, this Saturday, I'll be having some talk with the organisation I want to go to Finland with. Yeah right, Finland. For one year. In a host family. ... AWESOME.
Even though everyone calls me insane for going to Finland and not to the USA or New Zealand or the UK. Thanks for understanding, guys. Luv ya. >8[
Anyhow, I hope I won't mess up the meeting this Saturday, so that they'll take me. (:
[10/28/10] [05:10 pm]
Sooo tired today...
However, school exams are coming. D: Wrote two already and got them back. 1 is best mark in Germany, 6 is worst. I have a 1 in Spanish, and a 2- in Maths. That's pretty cool! c: My friends are all so much better though, urgh.
Will be gone to a family meeting Saturday till Sunday. I have a damn huge family, lemme tell ya.
Also, a letter arrived yesterday with the mail. I've got a date to get to know the people from the organisation with which I want to go one year abroad. PFffjffjkps. 6th of November. Hope I won't mess up...
Oh and. My friends can be so much support when it comes to acknowledging the fact I've chosen a rather... unusual country to go to as my year abroad. Yeah. Oh how much they are. So understanding and - OH GOD DAMN IT F''K THEM.

Hello, it's that nobody again. Just wanted to say I'm back from the Netherlands and our sailing boat! We had so much fun, and one day we even went sailing :] It was pretty windy though, so everything ended in a rather huge disaster! xD But it was fun. The weather was constantly changing but it was okay. Amsterdam was crowded, but great too! Overall very nice holidays once again. I love traveling~ ♥
Argh, school starts again tomorrow, I don't want schooool. D|
Hope you've been doing fine! See you around.
Note to self: !!
[10/17/10] [00:34 am]
Hey guys, not sure if anyone still checks here but I just wanted to say that I'm gone for a week now, having some nice time in the Netherlands with our sailing boat. (: Even though the weather will most probably not let us go sailing! Ah eh, we'll have fun anyway, visiting all the awesome, neat Dutch towns~ Shopping and such~ Yeehaw!
Anyhow so, I just though I'd let ya' know. Take care everyone~ c:
Also: Legend of the Guardians was AWESOME. Go watch it in 3D (HAS to be 3D). The story was sorta' foreseeable, but the movie had stunning visuals and adorable characters and EPIC SLO-MO FLIGHTS THROUGH RAIN AND FIRE YO. You should really check it out ♥
[10/15/10] [02:16 pm]
Gonna go sailing for a week next Monday, yesyes we have a tinytiny sailing boat in the Netherlands. Its name is Vlinder, that means Butterfly in Dutch ~ ♥
Days have been fiiiiine. C:
Went shopping the day before yesterday and it was aaaaweeesome. /girly needs
Okay so, today I'm going to watch Legend of the Guardians in 3D! That owl movie! It looks so kickass and I'm so excited urmpff. Gonna watch it with my two little sisters and my little cousin! He's a cutie~ ♥
Oh yeah and, my plans for the year abroad next year are growing further! Need to get accepted by the organisation though. Wish me luck! D:
Also, guess where I'm (hopefully) going! Mwahaha...
[9/17/10] [04:55 pm]
I'm excited and afraid.
I hope I won't end up being all alone and unsatisfied.
Will work on this page some more today. :3 Once all the pages are done, I might feel comfortable about being more in-forest again! Woo.
[9/8/10] [08:49 pm]
It's my second TEF anniversary today! Thank you everyone for letting me have such a great time here.
I plan to come back to the game of The Endless Forest. But first, I want to finish this blog. Worked on the screenshot for Flyra's tab today, how does it look? Nobody replies to my submitted picture, as usual. Not that anyone'd reply on here instead. I'll just leave it the way it is on here, or not, we'll see. I hope it isn't too bright...
Oh, mum's just called for dinner. See ya later then (:
[9/3/10] [04:27 pm]
I need to work on this and so much more.
I wish I were older and would never have to go through that kind of stuff anymore.
I wish not everyone in the world was like everyone in the world is.
I don't know. I feel silly. Ignore this.
By the way, got a new laptop, Eddie. He's awesomeeeeee ARGH and the Forest is so FAST (20 fps at average! WOO). That's so cool. I had waited for a new laptop for so long, and now I got such an amazing one.
School's started. It's going quite okay so far. No classes anymore, but courses. New people to meet and such.
They all seem to be the same though.
[8/28/10] [01:24 am]
I feel totally out of place here, to be entirely honest, but when did I ever truly belong, I can't seem to recall.
Are three weeks really that long? It feels like it's been decades since I lastly went through all that new stuff in Recent posts.
My holidays were totally awesome. I was in Sweden with my family, if you remember. The weather was great, and we experienced so much and had so much fun. I'm happy for the fact I can still have such an amazing time with my family. It's surely not always just the great countries we're usually in.
I must say I really love Sweden now. C: I even kissed an elk, imagine!
But now, I'm back and totally overwhelmed with everything here, but maybe that's because I had been sitting in a car with four other people and barely any space for half of my bodyparts for 16 hours of driving through half of Europe (it seems).
I'm not exaggerating.
So yeah, that must be it. Truly need sleep now. Maybe Tomorrow Is A Better Day...
[8/4/10] [02:13 pm]
Hello. Nobody remembers me right?
Just returned from my friend over at the other end of Germany. We had such a great time. ;A; Time went by wayyy to quick. I want to go back right now!
I am rich now: 7 new music CDs from the festival of her city, 3 DVDs and one epicepic computer game called "Machinarium" which she lent me and a book "Garou" which is a Sheep-Thriller (the first one of these was a crime novel where the most adorable herd of sheep ever investigate a criminal case, bwahaha so awesome).
Now, I have to get packing again because we're leaving for Sweden tomorrow. By car. For three weeks. (: Bye everyone... Take care... And such.
I wish I had more time...
[7/29/10] [10:02 pm]
Wow, amazing rainfall when I was right in the middle of the lake with the jolly-boat. Fun. :V Even the waterproof stuff I was wearing didn't really help, I was soaked. Yay.
And right after that me and my sister wrote the theoretical examination for our basic sailing licence. It was alright. I think I passed it, I knew almost everything and I could imagine the answers I didn't know by memory correctly. So yah. Happiness (:
Will be going to the probably best friend of my life who I got to know via Internet a long time ago tomorrow. I miss her so much, and it will be amazing. So you won't see me until the 4th of August, and 5th of August, I'll be off to Sweden for three weeks with my family. Busy days~
I wish you all well!
[7/28/10] [07:54 pm]
21 dead persons after the Love Parade now...
Sailing course is taking all of my time and strength. It's fun though. Wish me luck with the examinations :/
Prepare not to see & hear from me for three weeks soonly, that's when I'm in Sweden with my family. Funfunfun <3
I need to finish this blog. Will try to work on it today.
Love you all guys~
[7/26/10] [00:35 am] This is everywhere in the news over here.
Duisburg isn't far from here. It's actually the town Sunfyra lives in. Luckily she's on holidays currently. Ohgod--- it's so shocking. If any of my friends were here and not all over the world, who knows I could have been there with them. Terrifying...
Sailing tomorrow. Yah, you heard it correctly. I'm having a sailing crash course for the next week, 2/3 hours of sailing every day and the ... theoretical examination? Can you say that for sailing? ... will be Thursday, and the 'practical' one will be Saturday, but I'll probably have to do it anytime later because I'm visiting a friend over the weekend.
But now, I'm just tired as hell and seriously need some sleep, even though I haven't been doing anything much today. Wow, I even watched some TV which me and my family usually never do.
Hope all of you are doing fine :]
