Day 05 → talk about books this year

I did read some books this year, but I could hardly ever find the peace and quit, especially the quit of mind for reading. Sometimes I would read something and it was bad and I would not read anything for ages.

I have read quite a few books about health, fitness, mind and veganism. Many of which were quite inspiring.

The best thing that happened though is that spotify has started having audio books. I've listened to some really good books (and bad ones) this way. Die Seiten der Welt by Kai Meyer was really really good and one of the highlights. I also really enjoyed the psychology of Gone Girl. I also listened to all Harry Potter books and the Mortal instrument. I stopped the latter because it got so bad though.

Currently re-reading (actually listening to) American Gods. I am really looking forward to seeing the TV show.

Today is the day! This after noon I will see the new Star Wars movie with some friends. I really look forward to it. There are no movies I have seen more often than the old Stwar Wars movies. It's been such a huge part of my childhood and my life.

Anyways, I added some of you from this meme. So welcome here. I hope I won't bore you aore drift back into inactiveness again. It's so funny, a week ago I was complaining that it was so quiet and just a few days later and two new people on my flist, I could hardly keep up ;)

I'm in my mid 30ties, have been in fandoms for most of my life. I'm a dancing, reading, snuggling graphic designer and I love design and art and basically beautiful stuff. I usually post what i feel like posting or what I feel might interest you although I've fallen out of that habit a bit in the past few years.

I have several fandom related websites, such as ex-posed.com, parisnights.de and an icon journal at http://onlion.livejournal.com/ It's been ages since I updated any of these though.

Anyways welcome everyone, let's get to know one another.

This is the multi-fandom friending meme going on. Check it out.

Day 04 - talk about television this year

So it's already day 17 of december. Christmas is almost here. I have sent out a second batch of christmas cards yesterday. I'm sure I sent over 20 Christmas cards to friends and family. This time there are all store bought though. No time to prepare them myself though I had wished I could have.

Work is kind of stressful, which is mostly why I could not catch up with this meme so far. I've been writing this entry for a few days now, adding a sentence here and there.

At least today I will not be tempted by social media, because I want to avoid Star Wars spoilers. I haven't even seen the trailers besides the teasers and almost read nothing about the movie. I will see it with some friends later tonight and am cautiously optimistic.

I'm a bit behind again. I guess this was bound to happen. I have a load of work and responsibilities, christmas presents to buy and create. Just a lot of stuff to do.

Christmas Blues, all work and no play

Sometimes you haven't posted in so long, you don't even know what to post about anymore. Or where to fucking start. I've been swamped at work and it's been a bit hard and I've been stressed. We are redesigning the company website and have to have it done by the end of the first week of january and I hope that we make it in time. That said, christmas and everything.. will be short for me and I will not be able to take time off between christmas and new years eve like I had hoped.

Also this is the reason there will be no christmas cards this year. it's also the reason I didn't sign up for any. Chrismas hasn't reached me yet at all anyways. It's kind of sad how unchristmassy I feel.

I have caught the crafting bug. Which means there are tons of things I would love to try out and do myself. And I started with DIY snow globes. Now let me preface it by saying the experiment failed spectacularly. The trees I got have turned the water bluegreen and the glitter doesn't really float. But [livejournal.com profile] elsmoka asked for pics, so I made some.

Also [livejournal.com profile] eamesie had a what's in your bad meme. And I took those pics weeks ago.

Posting art every day...do you like it or is it getting on your nerves? In this one I tried out tons of things in Adobe Illustrator. I'm mastering that better and better now that i'm practising again.

I'm having a lot of fun with this mean. Not just because I love the old spice commercial and all incarnations of it, but well..it's fun.


@ [livejournal.com profile] elsmoka. Can you still send me your adress?
