Everybody who knows me also knows that I really love me a list. I make lots and lots of them - so have some to sum up 2011!



books read in 2011 )


films watched in 2011 )


musicals & concerts )

I travelled rather a lot this year; I went to Paris twice, I finally got to visit London, I was in Manchester, Liverpool, Chester, and York, and I travelled on a ferry for the first time in my life, which was really exciting (even in spite of the seasickness). All in all, it was a great year, even though I was in a bad spot every now and then, but I tackled some of my problems, and 2012 will be the year of coming to grips with them. It's also going to be a year of adventures! I'm going to finish school and move out (for the second time, but this time on my own), and I seriously cannot wait to start uni. Inbetween, I hope I'll be able to go to London (for funtimes and marmfishery!) and Paris (for work). I don't know whether everything will work out, but I'm certainly determined to try. OPTIMISM FTW.

Thank you all for being fabulous friends and for making my life all the time. <3 Here's to 2012!

This update, I admit, has been long overdue, but in my defense, I was very busy brewing potions! For lo and behold, I got my Pottermore welcome email! \o/ I'd been frantically checking my inbox all the time when it finally arrived on Saturday, and then I whizzed through The Philosopher's Stone in a few hours. I wish I had relished it a bit more because Chamber of Secrets isn't due to come out until some time early next year, and that is a really long wait. D: My username, for those of you also on Pottermore, is PumpkinMagic141, so when you get your email, friend me so we can have adventures together!

Slightly spoilerish Pottermore things, I guess? )


On a completely unrelated note, my aunt and uncle came to Germany for my uncle's birthday, and I got to meet them right before I departed for Manchester. My aunt is the loveliest person; she brought me delicious tea and also invited me to come stay with them again whenever, which means that I'll be going to London again after I passed my Abitur. That should be some time in March or April (but not any later probably, because I'll be doing a work placement or some such thing), whenever flights are the least expensive or whenever is most convenient for people to meet up! What say you? What month should I come to London, lovely people of the UK?


Adventures! Blurry pictures taken with my phone! )
