no. x trip to london

thursday and friday. 15.12.10/11
woke up as soon as I was able to after getting home at 4 in the morning, just because I was working till 3am. realised that today is the day, when I'm travelling to London to see Hudson Mohawke live again. the whole day of the journey was such a mess. I didn't have time to do anything I needed to. but the second I got into my delayed train to Euston, switched my ipod on with Hudson's new album 'Lantern', I knew, everything is going to be just fine.
It was so amazing to stand near The Roundhouse with a friend in the middle of London, drink whiskey and smoke while it's pouring down with rain and thinking 'we're about to see him. second time this year.'
I actually managed to get the tracklist from one of the security guards. And Gabby bought the vinyl. And after we got back home to her place, we played it. And turned on the Christmas lights. And it was magical.
the next day we decided to look up the vintage markets.
accidentally, we stumbled upon a really nice vinyl shop, spent there ages looking through different records. realised that there's so much wonderful music in this life that we haven't heard before, it's unimaginable. checked out winter wonderland, had a few pints. and of course, ended up near the tower bridge, my favorite place in London.

also, found Brick lane and remembered the song of Fingalick - 1000 nights, and its lyrics

" Now you drink wine in Trafalgar square, 
you can smoke on top of the London eye, 
the queen herself will brush your hair, 
and critics will shelter you and I, 
now you can get drunk in Brick Lane, 
now you can make love on the rooftops, 
for some it's just another place, 
but I will stay here, till my heart stops."

can't believe that november flew past so fast (that rhymed).
seems like halloween was ages ago, and I wanted to tell you about that.
when i was preparing for my 20th birthday, I wanted to tell you about it.
after I had the amazing night celebrating it, I wanted to tell you about it.
when I felt really depressed and sorry for myself after a week, I wanted to tell you about it.
but as you can see, november is completely empty. But I did start writing my own kind of a diary, not online this time.
perhaps I should just share pictures and write a bit more when I feel like it.

^ I wrote this probably like a week ago.
Didn't end up publishing it, cause I was too lazy to upload pictures from my phone, but I will promise, I'll do it tonight.
Right now I'm listening "Kaip tu ir sakei" which is a song I always put on repeat for the whole day after some posts it on facebook. And I'm also thinking about my trip to London. I'm going to see Hudson Mohawke AGAIN. literally, I'm sooooo excited. I believe I wrote a post about him, that I'm a fan since '09 and that I saw him play at Field Day festival this year. Cannot believe I'm seeing him again so soon. The next dream to see an artist live would be Flume. But he rarely comes to UK.

I've also downloaded the new Justin Bieber album. I know, I know, I'm an alternative electronic kinda gal, I shouldn't listen to JB, but oh my god his new songs are SO good. My fave is The feeling, you should give it a listen.

Uni is okay, still feel a bit lost, but there's no where to run, so I have to go on with it.

Work is okay as well, weekends don't feel like weekends anymore. You realize that it is Friday tomorrow just when you get a payslip email on Thursday evening.But I'm really happy that I joined my Offtowork family. Like, all the people I call my friends right now I know from work. And I used to have some thoughts about leaving and getting a proper part-time job, just because you can't get a proper schedule with offtowork, but right now it would be really hard, some shifts work doesn't even feel like work when you are surrounded by your friends.

Also, I'm really looking forward to go home for Christmas this year. Accidentally, me and three friends of mine, also fellow lithuanian offtoworkers bought the same tickets and will be going home on the same flight! Haven't been in Lithuania for 8 months. The longest I've been away.

I was helping out a friend with her assignments past two Mondays, and I can say, it was really weird spending hours in a make up chair and then standing in front of a proper photographer, even if it was just for a hew shots.


While I was copying the pictures from my phone to the laptop, rewatched all the snaps I saved this past year, and there are so many good ones! I definitely have to do a post of my favorite snaps one day ! ^^
