AMOM: so grab your stuff and let's all go outside!

I have some catching up to do, lovebugs!

My week was pretty intense. I had an exam on Thursday which I, well, should've been more prepared for but in the end I was unlucky because 2/3 questions were pretty hard and I know I made a mistake on the one I actually knew well. Haha, well that's life. The good thing is I don't need to pass that class because I already took it last semester (it's a two-part class but you only need to take one of them) so it doesn't really matter! :)

First of all, my lovely friend Cara gave me this a while ago. Yes, a pretty long while as I haven't had the time to update last week ;) Thank you dear, I really appreciate it! :)

Second of all, I need to catch up with A Month of Music. Yay! So since I haven't updated the last couple of twelve days there will be a few songs which if you think about it is just as exciting... And here they are:

Day 08 - A song that you know all the words to

Rise Against - Ready To Fall
Rise Against is one of my absolutely favourite bands. I'm really into rock music and they have a very melodic but not too Pop-ish sound. Ready To Fall was probably the first one of their songs I *really* knew (yeah, how mainstream) so I picked this one. Obviously, there are a lot of other songs they published that I know all the words to. Whenever I love a song I will learn all the words to it anyway! 

Day 09 - A song that you can dance to

Ke$ha - Tik Tok
This really isn't my type of music but Tik Tok is just SO addictive. Most of the times when you go to clubs obviously they don't really play my type of music (rock, see above ;)) and frankly, rock music isn't the best music to *dance* to anyway! Whenever this song comes on in the club I'll be the first one to hit the dance floor! 

Day 10 - A song that makes you fall asleep

Sloan - Who Taught You to Live Like That
This is actually an inside joke :) My friend was in LOVE with Sloan. One day, another friend takes a survey and one of the questions is: "A band that makes you fall asleep" and he put "SLOAN OMG." .. The beginning of a war! However, I must admit it does have a little sleepy tune.

Day 11 - A song from your favorite band

illScarlett - Milkshakes & Razorblades
Everyone who knows me knows my favourite bands are illScarlett and Panic! At the Disco.. before the break-up. I didn't know which one to choose but since I already picked a song by P!AtD before I decided to go with an illScarlett one. I picked Milkshakes & Razorblades because it's their newest release. It features Kardinall Offishall (sp?) Check it out! :)

Day 12 - A song from a band you hate

My Chemical Romance - Teenagers
I really do not like My Chemical Romance. Why? I can't really tell. Their too Pop for me and I don't like his voice.But that's just me. This song is actually rather decent which is why I picked it. 

Day 13 - A song that is a guilty pleasure

Aaron Carter & Baha Men - Summertime
Haha, okay so this is really embarrassing but when I was much younger I was absolutely obsessed with Aaron Carter. Totally. I had a sorta famous website on him and all, it was just great times. I don't listen to his music at all anymore (I highly doubt he actually publishes new music now but I don't know..) but recently I stumbled across this song and it has a happy reggae-ish kind of sound haha. Time flies!

Day 14 - A song that no one would expect you to love

Totale Finsternis - Tanz der Vampire
I'm not really a fan of musicals but one that I am absolutely obsessed with is Tanz der Vampire. (Juni I know you're reading this! ;)) This has absolutely nooothing to do with the whole Twilight/Vampire Diaries hype, trust me, I'm not into that at all. TdV is just a class of it's own. I first saw this when I was around 9 years old and I loved it. I still do. It's a musical full of emotion and great music. However, I must say it really is the best in it's original language, German, (the English version wasn't quite as successful actually) so if you understand some German, go listen to it. It's just intense. And if you don't, well, still listen and check out the amazing tunes and how they sing. Pure bliss.

Day 15 - A song that describes you

3OH!3 - Don't Trust Me
This one is an inside joke as well, haha. We noticed that the second verse of this song absolutely relates to me. As in, every single line. E-V-E-R-Y single one. Haha. I better not elaborate on this because it relates to some embarrassing and some private stuff haha but trust me, this verse was written about me.

Day 16 - A song that you used to love but now hate

Mandy Moore - Candy
Okay, really, who didn't love Mandy Moore when they were young? She was awesome. She shouldn't have cut her hair for How To Deal and I still think she's hotter as a blonde, but Mandy was just great. Listening to this song now gives me an epileptic tick, but that's okay. We all grow up. And Mandy, you're still great.

Day 17 - A song that you hear often on the radio

Coldplay - Viva La Vida
I really dislike Coldplay for some reason. It all sounds the same, it's all boring. However, Viva La Vida is just amazing. I love it. And it's on the radio all the time. Maybe not so much anymore but it's still there and there was a time when you couldn't get through the day without hearing it on the radio! 

Day 18 - A song that you wish you heard on the radio

Ubiquitous Synergy Seeker - Laces Out
My favourite radio station is 102.1 The Edge, a local station from Toronto. THEY play this song. They play a lot of great songs actually, so go check them out. However, I wish other stations would also play this song. Or maybe not because then everyone would love USS and I'd probably just get annoyed by them haha. 

Day 19 - A song from your favorite album

Something Corporate - Punk Rock Princess
The first two rock bands that I listened to were Something Corporate and Dashboard Confessional (which I have decided I do not like so much). Leaving Through the Window was my second ever rock album and up until now I think it is one of the best. It simply is.

These are my (almost two) weeks of music! 

Also, I have some outfits posts upcoming. Yay. What has everyone been up to? I got promoted to Erasmus coordinator at the Law Faculty after only about a month of working for the faculty. Isn't that amazing? Now I just wish it weren't voluntary work and I'd earn a little money but that's just not the way life is I guess haha ;) I'm super proud though! I'm also writing my first article for our magazine. During research I emailed 48 European universities and I got replies from... three. So yeah, it's due next week and I really hope to get some more replies or I won't know what to write about at all! Sigh. But it's all good because it's just great having the possibility of writing at all! My picture will be in the magazine haha! 

Hope you all had a lovely weekend. What did you do?
