You say it's me, I say it's you - who can blame us for thinking the way we do 'cause we don't care what we are.

Hello people.
I'm kinda rediscovering my love for Harry Potter. I can't wait to tell you why.
Here's the poor quality evidence:

The story behind the picture is better than the picture itself, though.
From the start: I was in London with my boyfriend (hello!) this summer! It was amazing. London is such a beautiful city, it's so vivid and artsy and awesome. We stayed there for six days, which was too short to see everything and long enough to get a cold in the rain (English weather, I guess!). After we had seen most of the typical touristic sights, we went to the m&m's world. I love m&m's so it was kinda the perfect place to be. When we went outside again, we noticed a crowd in front of a cinema - the rest is obvious. Daniel Radcliffe's so short, though! I could barely see him - but I did, luckily.
We also went to the Harry Potter store at Platform 9 3/4, which was AMAZING. There were all the magic wands and the Hogwarts student uniforms and tickets for the Hogwarts Express and I can't stop raving about this store, basically!
This is actually where I bought the T-shirt I am wearing. It was hella expensive, but definitely worth it. I'm in love with it, and people get quite shocked being like "why slytherin?! are you the evil one?".
Besides this official Quidditch shirt I am wearing tights from H&M and a thrifted white shirt (the white collar). The shoes are so old, they're from some flea market and have glittery laces (I had to buy them!). The skirt is actually a dress I bought about two years ago at Modcloth, but I somehow never got to show it here. I like to wear it, though. And for the badass witchy Slytherin vibe I had to put on some black lipstick, of course.
I have also been practicing spells to make this post seem authentic:
Harry Potter is awesome and not childish at all (I am still waiting for my acceptance letter to Hogwarts and therefore escaping all responsibilities in my muggle school). 
I'm blocking school out at the moment - which is quite bad for my grades, but hey, at least I have a Slytherin T-shirt!
Well, to all those "Why Slytherin?!" people: The house teacher of Slytherin is Severus Snape. And he is, undoubtedly, the best character in the Harry Potter movies/books. Therefore I am a Slytherin.
Oh, and have you seen Emma Watson's speech about feminism? I loved it, it was so true. She's a queen.
Watch it here, if you haven't already. Anyways, I suppose I'm finished raving now (I could go on forever, but I'm procastinating right now...)!
I hope you enjoyed this post!

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 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,
