They've all got roles and plots and gears, they have for years. Train is running around in my brains, rain is flowing around in my veins, tears are running down my face.





Four weeks no post! Is that a new low point?
Whatever. I'm back. Already busy with school but planning a lot of posts. Today was the first day of school, which was a strange feeling. It was wonderful to see my friends again, but on the other side, I don't have holidays anymore. Furthermore, this school year is going to be extremely stressful. I will graduate in June, which I haven't totally realized yet. It is scary to be done with school soon - dealing with life, you know, is quite hard. And as much as I'm looking forward to graduate, I'm already scared of all the exams and tests coming up. In the German school system, every grade you get in grade 11 and 12 will influence your final grade of your high school diploma. I feel quite weird, therefore - it's a mix of fear and joy. 
In addition to school, I am a member of three theater clubs, want to do some blogging and art and have to apply to literally tons of stuff. So I'm going to live on caffeine, but that's fine!

Enough self-pity now. 
This is a photo set my sister and I did today. We went to my primary school, which is closed now making me feel a bit nostalgic, and to the playground next to it. It just occured to me that I'm not even allowed to go to playgrounds anymore, it's only allowed to play there until you're 14... that's not fair. I love swings. 
Concerning my outfit, I am going for some Enid-Coleslaw vibes, as I really relate to the whole movie Ghost World strongly. I get that suburban sadness thing. But somehow, it has a certain aesthetic. Furthermore, Enid is the best. Look at her, she's amazing! The entire movie is, actually.


I am wearing a giant flower crown I made a few weeks ago. It's HUGE, I tell you. HUGE. It's pretty confusing sometimes, though: most people stare at your head instead of looking you in your eyes when you're talking with them. I thought of Enid's white crown, and, to be honest, a flower crown is obligatory! The skirt (I have been longing for a skirt like this for ages, I love to color!) was sent to me by a friend. The vein tights went perfectly with the outfit - unfortunately, they're ripped and I can't wear them anymore besides for taking pictures.
I bought the platform chucks earlier this year, and I love them, although the platform is way too low. The socks were a gift from my grandma. 
The best part, though, is my t-shirt. It was sent to me by the lovely people from Hicustom.com for free. It was super easy, you just upload an image and they print it on whatever shirt you like (in great quality!). So I chose a scene from Ghost World.












Well, I hope you enjoyed the pictures.
I will be back soon!

Lots of love,
Mary

He has missed her in the forest while he showed her all the flowers and the branches sang the chorus as he climbed the scaley towers of a forest tree while she was somewhere being free...







Hey lovely people! It's been a long time again, I'm just too busy at the moment. But I've got to say, the past weeks have been pretty awesome (except of school, it sucks). I'm in the drama group of my school, and last week we spent four days at a professional theater to see other plays from other schools. There were so many awesome people and even better plays! It was a lot of fun. And as we were away, we skipped school for three days which was one of the best parts. The school year is almost over, so all exams are written and we basically all go to school for like, eight hours a day and no one's even a bit motivated or paying attention at all, actually, everyone's sleeping all the time. I can't wait for summer holidays! I'll go to Spain with my family, probably camping with my friends, and I'll visit London for six days with my boyfriend. It's going to be a great summer, and, hell, it has to be! It's gonna be my last summer vacation in my life. I will graduate next year and although I can't wait to be finished with school, I'm hella scared of the final tests and of the real life after school. But there's still one summer left, so I really have to make the best out of it. I've also been quite productive so far, as you can see! We were supposed to keep a sketchbook in art class, and now that it's graded (A!), I thought I should share some of my drawings/collages/paintings/whatever with you. I'm not really talented at drawing, but I had a lot of fun filling this sketchbook. At first, it was like a duty, something I had to do for school, but as time passed, I got to draw something almost every day. It felt awesome to be, you know, ~creative~ in some way. I've been loosing my creativity in the past few years which makes me so sad, and that sketchbook really helped me to bring it back - at least a part of it. I hope you like it.



The word "Fernwehfeinstaubfantasien" is a made-up german word. The parts of it mean: Wanderlust - fine dust - fantasies and I loved it. Theresa Hahl made it up and used it in this poem of hers.






This is Pippi Langstrumpf, or at least, she's supposed to look a bit like her.


(insert elegant way to change topics here). The lovely people from HiCustom offered me to get something from their shop for free and I was so happy about that! At HiCustom , you can, like, design your own tshirts and stuff and they print it and send it to you. It's pretty awesome! (and it's super cheap, too.). Well, that's the t-shirt I designed:

It's just a white t shirt with a painting by Salvador Dalì on it. I'm really into surrealism lately, and Dalì is, like AMAZING! So I decided to honor him by wearing a painting by him (the ship) on a t shirt. Yay!


Random cat photo. It's just, you know, obligatory.

Lots of love,

Mary!

As I walk down the highway all I do is sing this song and a train that's passin' my way helps the rhythm move along. There is no doubt about the words are clear, the voice is strong, is oh so strong!

A tribute to Robert Plant








Warning: this article could be really chaotic because of extreme fangirling.

Stop whatever you are doing right now. Click on this link. And then, praise the overlord of Rock'n Roll. Maybe it's just me, but ISN'T HE BEAUTIFUL?! (probably it is just me, I showed the video to my sister and she was like "man, he's ugly! what the heck is he doing?!". She's 12 and when it comes to music, I sometimes believe she's not really related to me). To me, anyways, Robert Plant is a god. The god of Rock'n Roll. As the lead singer of Led Zeppelin, he made music history with legendary songs like "Stairway to heaven". Stairway to heaven, lemme tell ya, is the best song ever. Its lyrics are hauntingly beautiful, the guitar solo of Jimmy Page is otherworldly, and Robert Plant's voice is an eargasm, seriously. It's written brilliantly and just captivating. I hate choosing a favorite song, but if I have to, this is it. It's too amazing for this world.
I own unfortunately only two singles of them, and I rarely play them on my record player - they are real treasures to me and I am so afraid they will eventually wear down and I have to throw them away. But when I play them, I would turn the volume up and up and up and it's like wooooaaaah. I'm so sorry, I don't have words for Robert Plant's voice. He's just the best.
Well, I felt the urge to listen to the record today, and I decided to dedicate an entire post to the god of Rock'n Roll. I did a photo set inspired by Robert Plant, and here it is. The clothes are all thrifted.
Enjoy!

Love,

Mary

I don't know but we were so fly and so full of cheese, man we got on our cheesey pizza feast. Pizza party tonight!




It was really hard not to freak out while taking these pictures, I'm just too happy with my pizza shirt! I mean, there's a slice of pizza on it? How could I not freak out?! Obviously, pizza is my favorite food, well, actually, one of my favorite things ever. Therefore, I decided to dedicate a blog post completely to the most heavenly taste on earth. Pizza is probably one of the best things mankind has achieved so far. Just imagine sitting on your bed under a huge blanket with a pizza box on your lap and the smell of a hot cheesy pizza... It is paradise! And there are so many kinds of pizza. I could probably never eat anything else but Pizza. Pizza for breakfast is the best way to start the day, guys.
Well, one day, being hungry as always, I thought of pizza (that was hard to guess.). And then, all of the sudden, I had that amazing brainwave. So I went thrifting and bought the ugliest turtleneck ever. I cut off the collar and the sleeves and sewed the pizza patch which I made before on it. I can't put it off since then. The only problem is, it makes me so hungry when I look down!
I am also wearing black lipstick for some ~vibes~, some old DIYed cut-offs, black tights (the most boring yet most worn garment) and the holographic boots my boyfriend gave me for christmas. Wearing these always makes me really happy cause, you know, what's better than tiny rainbows everywhere you go?

Right now, I'm listening to Pizza party tonight for approximately the hundredth time and have been getting so hungry while searching for pizza on tumblr (probably a bad idea). But can we, for a moment, appreciate the fact that finally someone wrote a song about pizza? Applause to the Aquadolls! (does anyone know them? can we fangirl just for a second? They are super cool.) Aaaand you know what else is super cool? Pizza.

no source, sorry.


This AMAZING patch is available here and I LOVE IT SO MUCH I NEED IT.



My lovely cat even joined me while taking pictures. Unfortunately, she hates it when I lift her up, so she wasn't too pleased. So please ignore the fact that she's highfiving my face.
When I looked at this picture, I realized that in this picture, the three best things on earth are combined. David Bowie, or more precisely, Major Tom incorporated by the boots, a slice of Pizza on the shirt and a cat! And then on my endless journey through the depths of tumblr, I found this and completely freaked out.

I MEAN HOLY SHIT THIS IS A PIZZA CAT?!?! THAT'S TOO AWESOME FOR THIS PLANET.

Okay I needed a few minutes to calm down but I'm back again. I'm so ridiculously hungry, writing this post was a mistake.
So, PRAISE THE PIZZA!

Lots of love.

So you can put the clouds up in your own little way, but the sun is gonna come up the very next day, it's gonna be so bright it's gonna blow you away and once it's over your head will never be the same.



 


Hey guys, I hope you're all fine. Spring's finally there - it's pretty risky, though, to wear short skirts or tank tops already, as the weather changes all the time. Last weekend was perfect, not only because of the weather. I spent some beautiful hours in the park (it was so lovely! There were petals flying through the air and daisies and everything was so summer-esque.) with my boyfriend. I'm quite sad it's school again, but we' gonna have spring break in two weeks. And this week doesn't really count as a proper week of school - I'll only have a few lessons, as the theater group in my school keeps me busy. We are going to premiere on Thursday! I'm already so exited and I hope everything will work. I'll tell you about it next post.

Well, although school's quite okay (for I don't spend as much time there as usual), it really bores me. It bores me to death. I should probably listen and pay attention as we'll write quite a lot of tests soon, but I can't. I always carry "The Great Gatsby" with me, and when I can't bear the boredom any longer, I read a few pages. If you haven't read it or at least watched the movie, DO. Just do it. It's by far the best-written book I have ever read, and the characters are so incredibly amazing. One sentence in it sums up my feelings lately pretty nice, by the way: “And so with the sunshine and the great bursts of leaves growing on the trees, just as things grow in fast movies, I had that familiar conviction that life was beginning over again with the summer.” The whole book is so beautiful and I literally can't wait to read it all over again.
Back to the topic: Inspired by how boring school is, I decided to try to go for a bored-schoolgirl-look. I love the jumper! It's my sister's, she wears it as a pyjama which I just don't understand, it's way too cool for this! The shirt (you only see the collar) is mine, I believe it was from H&M about two years ago, maybe more. The skirt, which I totally overwear is from Primark, the knee socks are thrifted and the shoes are from Canada, also they are too small and almost fall apart. I made the flower crown by myself.

Now to something completely different. It was my birthday on the 19th of March! Sweet sixteen! I've been longing for finally being sixteen, as you're allowed to go out (to parties) at this age in Germany. I and a friend of mine, whose birthday was two days before mine, threw a party with a lot of nice people and lots and lots of cake. There were brownies, cupcakes and even a rainbow cake! We had an awesome evening/night.

I hope I didn't bore you as much as school bores me, and I hope you'll have a great day.

Lots of love,

Mary
