[livejournal.com profile] legoline gave me five things she associates with me  

Netherlands

Well, basically, I'm half dutch and half German, so trips to visit my grandma were a given. My family name is very hard to pronoun ce for German people and one of the oldest running gags of my life. But my dutch is literally non-existent though. My dad was just to lazy to teach us. My parents are currently living in the Hague.

Photoshop

I still remember the first time I opened... Actually I don't, I don't remember a lot from my first steps in Phototoshop. I don't remember learning layers, or how to use the the pen tool. However what I do remember is that I can sit in front of the programm for ours and forget time. I remember creating artwork at while studying graphic design. I remember my tutor showing us how masks worked. That was a revelation. I remember a shameless addiction with brushes, which made me see brush-worthy material everywhere! And I'm stil learning new stuff every day.

Jazz Dance

I've been dancing since my mom dragged my to ballet class when I was six. I'Ve done dance theater, hip-hop, contemporary and mostly Jazz Dance. I actually wanted to make a living out of this, but then I've never had the body for it. But I love dancing still, improvising especially and I would love to do more, especially with [livejournal.com profile] legoline. Our Modern Dance class is a highlight.


This is what we're triying at the modern dance class.

Music

Well, I love music in many forms. I love going to gigs, I love listening to it at home or on the train. I love Pop, Jazz, R&B, Alternative, Classical, Soundtracks. There needs to be a certrain energy about it and it's one of the most inspiring things there is! I grew up in a house that was filled with music, Frank Zappe, Led Zepplin, the Beatles, Nik Kershaw, Peter Gabriel, John McLaughlin, Steely Dan. Today I listened to a lot of Portishead.

Slash

Well, I'm a huge slash fan obviously. My first pairing was Chakotay/Paris, then Clark/Lex and now John/Rodney. I'm also doing a little soap slash on the side (Ollian, Nuke and DeRo). I'm not sure what I like about slash to be honest except that I do but I reccon it was more to do with loving those characters than anything else.
I do remember though, sadly, feeling like I was doing something wrong while reading my first slash story (at an online cafe). It was Sweet Dreams by [livejournal.com profile] maisierita, one of my favorite authors and I was very curious. It's still one of the best series I've ever read.

Our Modern Dance class is a highlight.

I'm already sad that I may not continue class depending on wherever my "career" takes me :-/

By the way, we did all the spins of the Processional last time. After a while, I just gave up and watched the others rehearse. I can't coordinate my feet!

Well, you should worry about that once it's happening, now is way to early ;)

And You just walk forward, I think. I can show you on sunday if you still want to come over.

I'd love to come over, but I think Verena might come to my place. I thought we'd said Saturday, that is, Verena and I. You're home Sunday? And the spins are trickier than that :P

As always, I know all the steps as soon as I'm home and unwatched *shakes head*
