it doesn't take a miracle to raise a heart from the dead

Today I finally picked up the keys for my new apartment. I'm soo happy!
Renting apartments in Japan isn't as easy because you have to pay a lot before finally moving in. So until today I wasn't 100% sure if it was really the best decision to rent that place.
But today as I opened the door and walked in into my new place, I knew that it was worth every single yen.

I finally will move in on Tuesday, but today I just went there to get friendly with my new place, welcome some friends (internet and gas guys) and relax a bit while listening to Charlotte Gainsbourg's IRM.

I can't wait to put some furniture inside! Most of all I want a kitchen table haha

come in!

a story of boy meets girl

...But you should know up front, this is not a love story.

On the 9th of this month the movie 500 days of summer (500日のサマー) was released in Japan. I had totally forgotten about this movie, which Marlene recommended me to watch last year in summer. And just a few weeks ago I was watching it again on my notebook out of boredom.

It's one of those movies, you are happy that they exist. Not a love story, not a comedy, not a drama - but at they same time so romantic, funny and sad. Just so simple and realistic that you believe you could walk out of the door and live to see the same story.

500 days of Summer is really a movie worth seeing.

”Darling... I don't know how to tell you this, but... there's a Chinese family in our bathroom.”


Furthermore since I watched the movie the first time I thought about getting her haircut / colour. I'm still thinking about it - Summer's haircut or no haircut at all?



baby, you'll be famous, chase you down until you love me

Finally it's Saturday again! Unlike every other weekend, this time I decided just to relax at home, watch movies, study for my tests next week, not leave the house if possible. Sounds so good to me right now!

I have some great news: I got the apartment in Koenji! On Monday after school, I'll go to the real estate agency to sign the contract. I can't tell you how happy I am. Not only that I was really craving for having an own place, with an own kitchen and bathroom. Staying in guesthouses is nice for a short time, but I felt very uncomfortable there after a few months.
So let's hope everything's going to go well!

The winter-sale season in Japan is almost over. I didn't really shop a lot because I didn't really feel like fighting myself through these crowds of Japanese girls, who become real monsters in the sale-season.
And other great deals like Helmut Lang 50%, I couldn't afford this time because of moving. We'll there's a new chance in summer, yep?!

I really need a haircut. Haven't been to the hairdresser since last April, because I really want to grow my hair again and I want to see how it will be when it's long with no layers etc..
But this weekend I will at least dye it some nuances darker..or all black? Who knows.

Lady Gaga's coming to Yokohama in April. I sooo hope I can go.
That's all for today. Hope you all have a great weekend!




It's hard to believe that it is actually an improvisation.
