Evening folks. Idag har jag inte gjort någonting förutom att läsa om franska verb konjugationer och kolla film, men å andra sidan har jag jobbat varje dag sedan den 2 december.
På tal om film; jag har hittat en som är skitbra och som jag sett totalt 3 gånger i rad nu lol, den utspelar sig i Belgien (lol 2.0) och har b.la. Marion Cotillard i en av huvudrollerna (vilket är 90% av anledningen till att jag ens ville se den från första början). Den heter Jeux d'Enfants och är typ, - jättehatad av alla kritiker för att karaktärerna har så vidriga personligheter, MEN JAG TYCKER DEN ÄR BRA, OK? Den handlar om två toxic lovers som förstör varandras liv genom att spela ett "daring game" från och med att de är barn och fram tills att de dör, pga spelet. Kul va? Se den.
För övrigt, här är lite bilder från musikalen som jag var på den 29 November med pappa. Bästa kvällen.
OBS! Bilderna är givetvis inte mina.
Mesdames et messieurs; Le Fantôme de l'Opéra.
Brooklyn is happy today because 1) she has finally finished reading Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. It was terrible. And I pray that number 5 will be better because book 4 was just asdfghjkl annoyingly S L O W; 600 pages of pure boredom. And the Triwizard Tournament wasn’t at all dramatic (compared to the film) like ??? Eh ??? Disappointed much ??? And why did Dumbledore remain so irritably calm throughout the entir- LIKE NOOO I want drama and chaos and misery but even RuPaul’s Drag Race has more suspense :-(( Brookie dislikie. Anyway, 2) I have, on the other hand, started reading Harry Potter et la Chambre des Secrets and it’s just such great practice for my French (!!!) It’s most likely the worst thing I’ve ever done to myself but it’s just such great practice for my French (!!!) I absolutely hate it!!! C’est trop difficile!!! Mais j’ai besoin de ça pq my French currently consists of communicating in only present tense lmao. Awful.
Oh and 3) I’ve bought a new nude lipstick and it looks fabufuckinglicious.
End of post.
And no I do not know why I started off this post with “Brooklyn is happy” bc lol I’m certainly not happy about RuPaul being more exciting than ~the boy who lived.~ *Sobs*
LOOK AT MY NEW MAKEUP THO
JUST LOOK AT IT
Hola I just finished a job interview this morning and now I'm back home listening to Christmas jazz. Nice. I also spent a couple hours in the library and got myself two books; one of them being 'Arri Potteur et la Chambre des Secrets. Oui, en français. I need to practice my reading.
The interview went very well by the way, so now let's hope for the best (I really want to wear that Santa hat ok).
Baiii for now peeps Brookie is taking a nap because that's her only talent in life
Well hello world, today has been a very good day indeed. I didn’t work, but I went to the doctor in the morning and right after I visited the bank, so yay. #productive. I also got a call regarding another job (!!!) which is temporary for December (I only applied because I wanna wear a Santa hat) SOooOOOooo petit moi is doing that interview tomorrow morning, yay 2.0.
Other than that I’ve been pondering on some new stories, studied French (as usual) aaand rewatched Coraline the movie which hella creepy tbh...
OH AND BEFORE I END THIS IRRELEVANT BLOG POST ABOUT MY BORING EVERYDAY LIFE; tonight I attended this li’l music-performance-café-thingy that my school arranges every year!!! Usually I’m in it too, but since I graduated I only helped them with the stage... I miss being on it tho.
My main purpose of going there however was to see my lovely Annanas sing (+ hug my old teachers hehe). She did amazing as always. I love her so much. And guess what? IT’S BEEN ONE YEAR SINCE I MET HER NOW!!! Time flies... It’s so weird to think that one year ago I was in the audience listening to her singing Stevie Wonder's “Isn’t She Lovely?” and I remember thinking to myself wow she is wonderful who is she and how do I get her attention and and and would she even talk to me ??? Well one year later here we are❤️❤️❤️
Good evening folks, I just finished a wonderful work shift and now I'm in my bed listening to the Pocahontas score. Hehe life's good these days...
Anyway, I'm going to do a question tag because that jazz's fun. Heeere we go.
1. What's your full name?
Clara Brooklyn Thu Ha Alice Eriksson. AND if you think that's long, you should know that 2 names were removed...
2. What do people call you?
Well, at work the chefs have named me "VÅRLLULLAR" meaning "spring-rolls." I think it's because I'm small, sweet, perfectly tanned and everybody wants me.
jk it's because I'm cheap Asian and easy to forget
3. How old are you?
4. How exactly are you feeling at the moment?
Fantastic thanks for asking
If you happen to wonder why it's because Laura my li'l mini muffin and I are making some veeery exciting plans for 2018 mhmm and it includes some Laura and some Brookie and some London and some hugs😏 Can you believe I'm finally going to meet her after all these years? #gelphieishappening
5. What did you do today?
I worked and did some planning on my book. Nothing interesting... TWO DAYS AGO HOWEVER; JESPER CALLED ME AT 2AM TELLING ME TO GO OUT WHEN I WAS ALREADY SLEEPY AND TUCKED IN MY BED BUT IDK 2 HOURS LATER WE WERE HAVING COCKTAILS IN A BAR AND SINGING TO SWAN LAKE ON TOP OF A BRIDGE AND I REGRET NOTHING
Here is a fabulous picture of that night:
6. What was the last thing you did before going to bed last night?
Solved a Rubik's cube like, 10 times lol
7. What do you do in your free time?
Lately I've studied languages, practiced calligraphy and spent a lot of time with my family... Usually you'll find me playing the piano, singing or drawing
8. What kind of music do you listen to?
It’s not like I listen to orchestral covers of the Super Mario theme music in secret
Recently I've fallen in love with Sinatra, Ray Charles, Halsey, French music and the '50s. Ordinarily I prefer a few decades later; the '70s-'80s SAVED ME I swear don't even get me started about how much I worship Queen and Toto and ABBA and Bowie and *sobs* it's just so good.
I also had this era when I was completely hooked on German musical showtunes, Swedish opera (I was 10 years old and had no friends ok) and drag queen songs from RuPaul's like ??? #brooklynwhy I even learnt the German songs by heart aND I DON'T SPEAK GERMAN. That's how bad it was.
Though, I think others would describe my music taste as:
"Lady Gaga, Elton John and WICKEEEEEDDD *duuunnnnnnn* wiiiCKEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEddd"
9. Name 3 things you hate.
I. Injustice II. Ignorance III. Greed
10. Name 3 things you love.
I. Traveling II. Learning III. Creating (making art, music, writing etc)
11. Someone you hate.
Hate is a big word.
I don't hate people from my past. Besides, I'm on good terms with everyone I care about... Yes, some have put me through quite a lot of pain and difficulties (I probably did as well) but that doesn't mean I don't wish them all the best in life. Life's too short and full of opportunities to hold grudges; thinking badly about someone only makes me miserable so I'd rather try to understand that there are reasons behind every action instead of judging/jumping to conclusions.
Me I have made tons of mistakes, but I believe that realizing your faults and admitting to being wrong is what makes you grow as a person, - and then it's all about how you correct them and improve for the future that defines you.
Though, to be entirely honest, there is one exception...
There's a person whom I ended up losing every bit of respect for and that I never want anything to do with again. (Just imagine how badly you need to mess up for me to do that...)
I swear I've never met someone so self-absorbed, immature and disrespectful in my entire life and cutting ties with them was the best decision I've ever made.
12. Someone you love.
13. Favorite artist?
DON'T MAKE ME CHOOSE BETWEEN THEM. JUST DON'T.
14. Favorite movie?
Harry Potter duh
15. Favorite book?
Fjärde Riket (Maria Nygren)
16. Favorite food?
17. Favorite animal?
Cats & snakes
18. Do you have any pets?
A LI'L FLUFFBALL CAT
19. Best school subjects?
Arts & linguistics
20. Worst school subjects?
Maths & physics
21. Description of the perfect date?
Sitting by a wonderful view with a wonderful person and drawing together, having a glass of wine at night and sharing a kiss😘
22. Where was the last place you kissed someone?
This is the kind of question that you want to answer with "Paris" or- oh wait
23. Do you miss your ex(es)?
24. What do you want to tell your ex?
LEARN HOW TO BEHAVE LIKE A DECENT PERSON
LEARN HOW TO TREAT A GIRL
DON'T PUT THE NEXT ONE THROUGH THE SAME BULLSHIT
25. What do you find attractive?
Maturity, ambitions & intellect
26. Do you want to get married? Why/why not?
Yes, because I want to annoy somebody for the rest of my life. Jk I take relationships seriously and believe it’s a thing that doesn’t just happen on its own but needs to be worked on and built over time. Ironically I think the key to a good relationship is independence; when you support each other as individuals instead of relying on each other and becoming ”one”... But that’s just my theory. However, I like the idea of getting through all ups and downs in life with one person, supporting their goals and dreams and encouraging them to become the best version of themselves without changing who they are. Imagine loving someone through anything despite of how difficult it gets, and despite that it might not always benefit yourself. True love right there.
27. Do you believe in soulmates?
Mine was trash
28. Who is the sexiest person you know?
Hah nah I won't tëll ever
29. What was going on in your life a year ago?
That's completely irrelevant
30. What makes you happy?
Writing, reading & playing the piano
31. Is this the best year of your life?
Best AND worst, I’d say
32. Who was the last person you had a deep intellectual conversation with?
That jazz only exists with my sister
33. What was your childhood career choice?
"Lady Gaga 2.0"
(Yes, I know what you're thinking. But that was before I got the thing about monotheism; there can only be one God)
34. Do you have any internal conflicts with yourself?
YES such as do I wanna spend 3 hours on a bootleg about super dorky Mormon missionaries in Africa or green witches ???
Idk it just really complicates my life
35. Do you miss anyone from your past?
No, because every person that I love and care for, - and who does the same for me in return, are in my present
35. What are you future plans?
WELL, if I don't become the next Billy Porter aka Lola in Kinky Boots (which I doubt bc duh what could possibly go wrong) or get another creative job within the theatre community I am for sure going to work with traveling, tourism and languages
At the moment I'm veeery close to moving to Belgium but something tells me that I'm gonna end up in London instead, possibly Paris. I'm still making up my mind ok, but one of the places will do❤️
Yesterday was a very good day indeed; I went to the bookstore with my friend and had sushi for lunch, and after that I dealt with some emails regarding jobs and studies abroad. I’m 100% serious about moving as soon as possible; all I need is some more savings but that shouldn’t take too long since I already have a job. Either way I’m in no hurry because I love my current workplace and wouldn’t mind staying a bit longer...
Anyway, I guess my biggest problem right now is trying to fit everything into my schedule because I refuse to 1) cancel Gaga in London and Stockholm next February and 2) wait. I wanna go now. Right now. I’ve waited for this since I was born (ok not really) BUT LOOK: what could possibly stop me from spending a few months in my favorite city and studying my favorite language? I told my parents already at age 13 that as soon as I’ve graduated I’m leaving Sweden to go somewhere else in the world and nOW tHaT I’ve GrADuaTED I finally have the freedom to do it. I can even do it within a few months if I want to. And I will.
Any guesses where I’m going?😏
