Day I

So I started off my little adventure by having a lovely morning at the Borough Market - everyone there were super nice and let me try all sorts of things from all over the world. I had goat milk ice cream, Colombian coffee (anything for u @SofiaVergara), duck meat sandwiches from France and so much more!!!! and iT WAS ALL AMAZING

After that I had a walk in Southwark, however it was cold as balls so I went up in The Shard and did some writing in my travelling journal that I bought in Dublin last year. Then I watched the sunset before heading down to my next stop which was LAMDA aka where I was supposed to meet up with Emi babe. I was maaaybe an hour late or so, but it was because the sun wouldn’t ever fucking set k. Blame @sun

Emilia absolutely didn't give me a tour inside London's Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts. She's a good girl and would never break the rules and let me sneak in.
However I did fantasise about what it might look like inside that school, since I’ve heard sooo much about it. I even pictured they might have a classroom that looked like Hogwarts...

Sad I didn't get to see if it was true.😢

At this point I is a very happie Brookie.
No seriously, I'm afraid you can't even imagine how much this meant to me. I hugged Emilia like, a lot. And I hugged Charlie like, a lot too. Yes, me met two of the most important friends I've ever had. And I love them so much.

Thanks to them my trip to London wasn't a total waste after all, despite that tHE PURPOSE OF THE WHOLE DAMN THING SINCE 1,5 YEARS NOW DECIDED TO CANCEL HER SHOWS FOR THE SECOND TIME AND IN MY CASE FOR THE FOURTH I. AM. NOT. OKAY. FFS GAGA I FUCKING C A N ' T - I'VE TRAVELLED TO BELGIUM FRANCE ENGLAND (AND SWEDEN) FOR YOU AND ALL YOU DO IS POSTPONE CANCEL POSTPONE CANCEL SRSLY YOU + YOUR TEAM CAN'T EVEN PLAN A TOUR WELL ENOUGH BASED ON YOUR HEALTH - DO NOT GO ON “WORLD TOUR” IF YOU'RE SICK TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF INSTEAD AND DON'T MAKE PROMISES YOU CAN'T KEEP BC IT'S BEEN 2 YEARS OF WAITING AND PAYING AND STRUGGLING AND TRAVELLING FOR N O T H I N G
and then Charlie and I had fish and chips at a super cute little pub in Covent Garden before picking up our tickets for Wicked.
After that we went to Oxford Street to have pizza at Pizza Hu' (I've discoverated that Bri'ish people don't pronounce their Ts) and I’m not even joking (yes I'm back at Wicked again sorry for constantly messing up the order) but those 3 hours in the Apollo Victoria theatre were probably the best 3 hours of my life.

Me, Charlie and Gelphie were all in the same room together and I sobbed a lot. Charlie's shoulder got very wet. Sorry Charlie, for soaking your pretty pink dress with my happiness.

Oh, and then we met Glinda:

Day III

The next day was a tragedy. I didn't even take any pictures of it. Thanks a lot Gaga.

I intentionally slept all day - and I had this really cool dream where I got inside LAMDA and watched the students rehearse for some Shakespeare play... But yeah, then I woke up - all depressed because none of my dreams came true that day.

Day IV

Yes, I may or may not have booked another ticket to see Wicked, just to fill my emptiness from not getting to see Gaga as planned.
Ironically, I sat right next to a guy with a huge "little monster" tattoo who was there for the exact same reason.
This is what happened during the intermission:

Girl next to me:
Hey, I’m Jennifer. Have you seen Wicked before?

Me:
Hey, I’m Brooklyn.
Yes, two days ago actually. I’m only here now because Lady Gaga cancelled her concerts-

Boy next to me:
NO WAY YOU TOO!?
*pulls up sleeve with Gaga tattoo*

Me:
NO. WAY.

Jennifer:
Wow, the world is small.

Me:
*wipes rainbow tear*
Amen. I love it. Paws up. *cries*

And yeah then act 2 of my emotional roller coaster began.

However, the second performance wasn't near as good as the first one. Maybe it was because my favourite Elphie (Alice Fearn💚) got sick in the middle of act 1 and had to leave (the entire cast ended up consisting of standbys and swings...) or maybe it was because Charlie wasn't next to me.

I had to sob on my own shoulder.

Day V

Tbh I don't remember exactly on what day I did what hah but let's just summarise my trip like this: I walked around all of London by foot and tried to see as much as possible aka not only the big-touristy-stuff but also the teeny tiny hidden-cornery-stuff that wasn't as crowded and indeed creepy af at night. And this went on from like, 10 in the morning until 11 at night (that's basically one work shift at my job tho) and for 3 whole days (would've been less if it wasn't for Gaga...) and I know it sounds lonely af but believe it or not - it was really enjoyable. I like being alone just as much as I like company lmao, so literally the only catch was Gaga the cold. It was freakin' cold. Like, minus degrees. I couldn't feel my fingers :-)

Oh and on the 6th I went to Harrods and had ~afternoon tea~
Just thought I'd put it out there, for y'all to see how Bri'ish I am.
Before I left I also bought some gifts for my family in their luxury chocolate hall. The gifts were delicious.

Neal's Yard

I'm pretty sure I went here on the 5th but whatever nothing in this blog post's in chronological order anyway bECAUSE NOTHING FKN MATCHES MY AESTHETICS

#bloggingisharderthanitseems

Anyway now I'm in another skyscraper:

Älskade motljus

HD mhmm

Normally I wouldn't add a photo like this because 1) low quality and 2) not chronological order but 3) IT'S THE ONLY PHOTO PROOF I HAVE FROM THE BEST DAY EVER AND THAT'S ALICE FEARN MY BABY ELPHIE AND SOPHIE EVANS AS GLINDA SO HOW COULD I NOT PUT IT IN THERE yes I am done thank u very much *bows*

Yay enjoy more low quality pics of nerdy stuff that I've sold my soul to

Oh and excuse me while I abuse the caps lock button once more ok
ON THE 6TH I SAW THE MOST INCREDIBLE SHOW I'VE EVER SEEN (after Wicked) AND I WOULD LITERALLY SACRIFICE MY LIFE, EXISTENCE AND (if really needed) PUFFY '80s HAIR TO SEE IT AGAIN BUT IT FKN CLOSES ON BROADWAY THREE DAYS BEFORE I GET THERE AND I THINK THE LONDON CAST'LL CHANGE SOON WHICH MEANS I WON'T SEE STEVEN WEBB AS THE GAY MORMON AND *catches breath* I aM nOt okAY

Btw, it's okay if you didn't get any of the theatre references quotes and names above; congratulations on being a normal, healthy, functioning person.

But if you did;
give me your number.

Some photos from day 1 at the London Bridge and Borough Market that I decided to put in the very end due to obsessive compulsiveness over clashing aesthetics:

The End.

Jag vet inte hur en normal sökhistorik tillhörande en 19-åring ser ut men detta är i alla fall min.

Yes. 💪

Now you know.

And hopefully you'll memorize this utterly important piece of information for the rest of your life.

Alltså, detta är fruktansvärt. Jag har (ofrivilligt och motvilligt) haft EN HEL vecka ledigt från jobbet. Lord help meh. Det enda positiva jag fått ut av detta är ...nej, det finns faktiskt ingenting. JAG KÄNNER MIG SÅ VÄRDELÖS OCH RASTLÖS OCH ARBETSLÖS OCH FÖRMODLIGEN ALLA ANDRA ADJEKTIV SOM OCKSÅ SLUTAR PÅ -LÖS. Vad har jag gjort med mitt liv denna veckan? ...Jag har gjort en (jättegod) getostpaj, lärt mig lite La La Land melodier på pianot, köpt körkortsteori, gråtit på banken över att 1) livet är så dyrt och komplicerat och för att 2) deras kaffe var för starkt och hann kallna fram tills att jag fick hjälp. Jag har gjort klart min dagboksjournalagenda/kalender som jag började med år 2016 då mitt liv i princip bestod av att boka flyg till Belgien och sen har jag faktiskt pluggat ytterst lite franska. Ytterst lite. Precis som jag pluggat ytterst lite körkortsteori. Ytterst. Lite. Shaaame.

Vad har jag gjort mer... (Alltså, om du vill kan du sluta läsa nu för det här inlägget har noll relevans för allmänheten- liksom jag skriver för min egen skull så att jag kan få en slight overview över vad f** jag håller på med när :) min :) chef :) vägrar :) schemalägga :) mig :))

JO, jag har köpt en NY dagboksjournalagenda/kalender!!! DEN ÄR SÅÅÅ FIN, jag ska ta bild imorgon. Sen råkade min tumme vidröra den där blå appen med ett fancy W på (nej inte Wikipedia den är vit) och vips så hade jag beställt massa mini pryar från Asien för 93kr. Wow imponerande Clara, så for du får ledigt från din enda inkomstkälla spenderar du pengarna på mini prylar från Asien. Lycka till med att flytta utomlands sen mhmmm hoppas ingen hann läsa så här långt jaghatarmigsjälvok

Hejdååå puss puss

Hola hola, I should be booking tickets for London Stockholm and New York rn but since I'm the queen of procrastinating I'm not booking tickets for London Stockholm and New York rn. *Self-loathing increases.* Anyway, I'M GOING TO LONDON STOCKHOLM AND NEW YORK. I REPEAT FOR THE FOURTH TIME IN THIS POST: ME IS GOING TO LONDON STOCKHOLM AND NEW YORK. Excuse me while I sob from gratitude and life appreciation.

.....Oh god I should really book these tickets tho, shouldn’t I? Wait, brb.

Okay let’s try this whole thing over again.

GUESS WHO JUST BOOKED TICKETS FOR LONDON STOCKHOLM AND NEW YORK AND HAD TO MENTION IT FOR THE FIFTH TIME ON HER BLOG??? AAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHSSKSJSHSJK

So. Many. Dreams. Are. Coming. True. This. Year. It’s quite unbelievable actually. I look at my life about a year ago and gosh, - it was just one big miserable disaster... I had lost touch with people I love while my only friend was someone who turned out to be a not-so-very-good-friend. (Idk maybe it’s just me (?) but I don't consider someone who lies, cheats, takes advantage of and fulfills their needs by using others as a friend. A friend isn't one who risks your happiness for their own benefit and a friend just doesn't turn yours and your friends' lives into a living hell. They just don't.)
Anyway, my lesson is learned and I won't sink that low again.

Now...
I can’t believe I’m getting to say this sentence but (for the sixth time hehe) 👉I am actually going to New York City👈 which has been my dream for as long as I can remember. And with my mom!!!❤❤❤

And this February I will be seeing Lady Gaga aka my biggest idol SINCE 8 YEARS NOW, and finally with the one person I’ve always dreamed of seeing her with. Sometimes I think it was meant to be that Gaga postponed her tour... I mean she's much healthier now, and for my part it couldn't have ended any better.

So after 5 years Emilia and I will see the queen together in London.

And as if that wasn’t good enough already; the day before that I will be seeing Wicked with- guess who??? GUESS WHO??? YES, MY ONE AND ONLY DARLING ELPHIE LAURA AKA CHARLIE. My Wicked buddy since 2015💚 How lucky am I?!

So far 2018 seems like a promising year.🌟

I’m so happy and inspired lately and ever since I got my promarkers (about 3 weeks ago) I’ve discovered A NEW POTENTIAL TALENT AKA DESIGNING CLOTHES!!! WHICH IS SO NICE I MEAN LOOK!!! ME CAN DESIGN CLOTHING!!! IN COLOR EVEN!!! I feel like Elphaba in act one during “The Wizard & I” when she’s like UNLIIIMITEEED, MA FUTURE IS UNLIIIIIIMITEEEEEEED” etc. It’s just SO NICE because now, whenever I have an image in my head I can make it REAL!!! VISUAL!!! TO PEOPLE OUTSIDE MY HEAD AND IMAGINATION!!! So now I’m making fashion sketches like, all the time and my goal is to learn more about it and make more serious stuff rather than using my Top Model books I got as a kid (lol) and maybe perhaps even design a little collection. Or plenty of them.
Oh and funny thing is; those li’l pieces of vêtements below are inspired by real people I’ve seen on the street (ignore the one that looks like me hah) but for instance, the girl in an emerald green jacket was somebody that I crossed paths with on the metro in Paris. Does this make me a creep? Totally not. SOOO!!! I guess what I’m trying to say here is that dis is gonna be an exciting project for petit moi

K bye

Gissa vem som äntligen krupit ner i sin varma sköna säng efter ett gött 11-timmars pass på ChopChop...? Mmm it is våhlullah. Alltså åhhh mitt älskade ChopChop how I missed u. Så underbart att få vara tillbaka, jag insåg nämligen under december månad att det här med paketinslagning under svalt och tidspress var nog inte riktigt min grej. Att servera kyckling och ropa THAI BEEEEEFFOOOO under tidspress är dock helt min grej. I love it.

Mina fötter gör väldigt ont, tho. I fredags gick jag och Alexander aka ma wicked sistah igenom i princip hela Nordstan i ett tappert försök att hitta något så basic som en trench coat, men eftersom basic doesn’t apply to us hittade vi ingenting förutom en drop dead gorgeous Elena, som jag sedan spenderade kvällen med. Det var en bra kväll som började med junk food och vin (hah bästa kombon) och slutade med att vi däckade tillsammans framför Modern Family... vilket jag inte alls tyckte var ett dåligt avslut.❤️

Och just det; imorse stötte jag på världens jävligaste busschaufför. HAN ÖPPNADE FAN INTE BUSSDÖRRARNA FÖR MIG NÄR JAG KOM UTAN BLÄNGDE BARA SKITSURT PÅ MIG SAMTIDIGT SOM HAN KÖRDE IVÄG?!?!? SÅ JAG VAR TVUNGEN ATT SPRINGA SOM EN FUCKING IDIOT TILL TÅGET FÖR ATT HINNA, VILKET RESULTERADE I ATT JAG VAR HELT SLUT INNAN MITT JOBBPASS ENS BÖRJAT. Och så 11 timmars arbete på det, med totalt 1h och 15min paus. Nice. Jag är trött :-)

I’m 19 now. *Gasps*

My day was very nice indeed. I mean, well - in some ways it absolutely wasn’t (I got sick, for instance) but in other ways it was more than I could ask for.

E called me at 00:00 and already there my day was made. I woke up to my family singing and received the most wonderful gifts😭❤️ I got a super cozy scarf, a book and last but not least; A FREAKIN’ GUITAR. I’m shooketh.

Anyway, since I was sick I couldn’t go to work - but fortunately I felt a whole lot better in the evening so my family and I had our traditional birthday dinner in Gothenburg at Bon. IT WAS AMAZING, I truly enjoyed every second of it.
And if anyone cares; I had entrecôte with French aka BELGIAN fries, rosé wine and crème brûlée for dessert. Nom.

Later at night I stayed in Gothenburg and met E for the first time. Turns out she was the one who had sent me the anonymous flower bouquet delivery... How sweet. So we went to Burger King aka her old workplace and met up with her colleague and friend who’d prepared an adorable heart at the table. So we had coffee and stayed there until 3 hours after closing time... and then we went home. The next morning it wasn’t my birthday anymore (😞) but she was so cute and woke me up before my alarm went off with some chai tea and her cat. Thanks to her I felt like a birthday princess.

Ok dat’s it, babaiii
