One thing you should know about me is that I am not capable of liking anything. I either get obsessed with it and let it completely consume my life or I don’t like it at all.
That being said, you can imagine that movies, books, music etc. have always had a big impact on me. Here’s a little list of some of the most memorable things that had an impact on me.
P!nk- Conversations with my 13 year old self. When I stumble across one of her emotional songs I’m back to my 13 year old self confused and crying in my room. How could you describe me so well? She will always be my strong role model. You can be tough even though you are vulnerable.
Linkin Park- Valentine’s day. In eight grade I heard a song on the radio and fell in love. Damn that day. Thanks to that, a year later I met a boy…back when you would still bond over music because it was the most important think to ask people. Two years after that, I got my heart broken, as you do. That’s the story of why the best way to piss me of is to play a LP song. For a long time if you asked me what I would like to forget about my past it would be that story, but even though it was painful I don’t think so anymore because the painfull stuff helped shape the person I am today.
“People always leave”- Peyton Sawyer, who by the way is the coolest person ever.I wanted to be Peyton Sawyer, black Converse and all. Living in a teenage drama town like One tree hill, was the dream. Thanks to that I became a music geek and my playlist would often be a mix of all genres, r’n’b next to heavy metal next ro reggae. My room had a different color every month (sorry mum) and I will forever love that show because it inspired me to start exploring art.
“One preson’s craziness is another person’s reality.” – Tim Burton. He was a great inspiration for a long time, along with Helena Bonham Carter and their adopted child- Johnny Depp. Because of them, I fell in love with movies and it made me consider the ‘behind the scenes’ aspect of movie making. They also taught me that being a little weird is perfectly fine. My andmirarion can also be seen here:

Or equals three. Or the first youtube show I ever watched. I met my best friend because of bonding over that show. To most people those are just silly videos, but to me it opened a whole new way to see the world over the internet. And not just fun videos and fighting in the comment section but a way to share and hear personal stories. There is a sense of community and an opportunity to learn about each other that wasn’t present before. We have endless information about anything, so if you have internet connection, being ignorant is really a choice.
That was only a few honorable mentions and there are many more things I generally fan girl about, which we could maybe discuss in a later post. I may not like some of those things anymore but at one point they helped shape me as a person and this deep impact it can have is really the importance of art.
