Urgh I am so annoyed that I can't keep this blogging thing going. In a way there are so many things I want to share here, but then when I sit in front of my laptop it just all seems to trivial.
This is not my first time in America and a lot of my observations are not really that "new" to me, so they don't end up here. I love it here, but at the same time I don't want to give the impression that everything here is always happy. Blogging life is hard, people!

A couple things I love so very much right now:

American Authors, who we saw at a concert at SXSW. They are SO good! Especially this song, which is my gym jam.

Another amazing song, by Ingrid Michaelson. We saw her as well and she was kicking ass!

This website. Roadtrippers. Amazing. You can plan your whole trip there, it will tell you how long it will take and other fancy trallala- so useful! So here is the trip we are going to take this weekend. My friend is coming to visit and I am so so so excited to show her Austin and Texas and my life here!

This was Spring Break.

first night in South Padre
So we are back from South Padre Island and back to Austin, where South by Southwest is in full action. I have never properly understood what SXSW is, but here a little summary: The largest music festival in the world of its kind- caaraazyyyy. But not just that, there is also a film part and an interactive part and so much more. So for about a week Austin is crowded with people, bands and famous people. The sort of annoying thing is that you have to buy a badge/pass for the official access to all the events. There are badges just for the single parts such as film or the platinum pass which pretty much includes everything. However, that shiny thing costs you about a whooping 1800$.
Ummm yes. There is enough other crazy stuff for free or the so called RSVP madness, where you sign up for a free waiting list and you maybe get in when there is enough space. So that is what we will be doing for the rest of the week. 

South Padre has been loads of fun, including drama, a lot of rain, a lot of alcohol and full of lovely moments. I find it crazy to think that I know these people for only just about three months and we are so close: So strangely close that outsiders barely have a chance and don't really understand our group dynamic. However, this craziness also means that as much as we love each other, we hate each other just as much sometimes. Exhausting to say the least.
Anyway, we spent every single night at Louie's Backyard, the typical spring break bar with people who cannot distinguish between activities you do on the dance floor and in the bedroom. We had not that much luck, it was raining for pretty much every day except the last one. Oh well, so we just went to the jacuzzi instead. Don't mind if I do!

off to south padre

It's finally spring break,woohoo! 
Right now I'm sitting in the back of a massive SUV (hooray for free upgrades!) and we are on our way to South Padre Island- sadly it is raining right now but fingers crossed that it will stop veeery soon.

Oh life.

I mean, seriously? Watching moments like this is one of my favorites during the Oscars. I find it fascinating how they form this community and also how people such as Ellen or Jimmy Fallon/Kimmel become such friends with them.

 This one is finally turning 21 today. Hooray! Actually just an excuse to have cake, of course

This weekend was a bit slow for me, because I was on antibiotics thanks to my friend bronchitis >< Hopefully it's all gone now. This week is gonna be so stressful, URGGG!!! I have a presentation, a mid term in French Cinema, more stuff to finish that's gonna happen right after Spring Break... I am so glad when we hit Friday! And then on Saturday, we are leaving for South Padre, wooho! Cannot believe how time is flying again.
