I got tagged!

Thank you so much the lovely Twisted Princess for tagging me! I am flattered!
Check out her awesome blog Darkling Dreams please!! :)

How can I miss this chance to talk about myself? Even describing things about me with actual words. You are too kind....


  • Link back to the person who tagged you [sure did!].
  • Tag 5 blogs with less than 200 followers [sure will!].
  • Get them to tag more bloggers and keep this thing going [sir yes sir!].
5 things you need every day:

  1. Concealer, please! Funny this stupid thing was the first one to come to my mind. Unless I am sick/ spend all day at home I MUST wear a concealer, or else people would ask me if I'm ill/ haven't slept enough/ haven't ate enough/ someone punched me in the eye.
  2. YouTube. I specified this out of "internet" because among all the other websites I daily use, all my hopes and imaginations depend on this website so much.
  3. Tissues. My nose runs 365 days a year.
  4. Tea. Because one isn't really alive without it.
  5. Boris. Do I really need to explain?
5 books you would recommend: [a tough one, I haven't read normal books for quite a while]

  1. The Shadow Of The Wind by Carlos Ruiz Safon. Because it's my favorite book ever, mixing a crime and a gothic novel together, love and the dirty grey streets of Barcelona.
  2. One Flew Over The Cookoo's Nest by Ken Kesey. One of the best books about society and its behavior.
  3. A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess. Again the society's behavior thing that I like about this book, and if you happen to know Russian like me it is hilarious to read the Slavic slang the characters use. Also if you read Russian read this book in English [or any other second language that you might know] because otherwise you won't understand the sophisticated slang ;)
  4. 1984 by Geroge Orwell. If you don't understand politics like me, this book is great for you, because it is so vicious it gets literary nailed into you're head leaving you frightened and shocked. My experience with this book at the time was similar...
  5. Before I Go To Sleep by S.J. Watson. Finally something not dystopian! A story of an amnesiac who wakes up every morning with the task to remember who she is and who are the people around her. Very thrilling!
5 materialistic wishes for Christmas presents: [you are too cruel...]

  1. An apartment in Berlin, please.
  2. A German citizenship, thank you.
  3. Tons of money, I forgot.
  4. Winklepickers, by the way.
  5. A ticket to Wave Gotik Treffen?

5 places you wish to visit: [ let me at least feel a little bit at home in Berlin, will you?]

  1. Sweden. Somehow I really think I would like it there, the weather, the nature, the people, the language ;) 
  2. Canada. Same here with weather and nature. I like wastelands.
  3. Tokyo! Because I was an anime freak once, and I'm still dying to visit Harajuku!
  4.  Poland, for the sake of the hilarious language I one day promised myself to master, and to get closer to my long lose east European roots!
  5. St. Petersburg. One thing for sure, I hate Russia and everything it conveys, but only because of the white nights, the immortal cultural treasures and the opening bridges would I want to go to St. Petersburg. It would be interesting to see the Goth scene there, somehow I think it exists in that city, but maybe I'm mistaken.
5 Adjectives that describe you: [holding myself back not to write only negative...]

  1. Compromising.
  2. Irrational.
  3. Territorial.
  4.  Creative.
  5. Self centered.
5 things you'd say to people about life: [you want to be depressed or what?]

  1. Today is the tomorrow we thought about yesterday. I've been saying this since I was 13.
  2. You are alone. Nobody will help you, you must endure everything yourself.
  3. If some stupid bitch can do it, so can you.
  4. If someone is intentionally hurting you physically or verbally without any reason or being hurt by you first, destroy them without consideration [definitely something I would say to my kid one day].
  5. If you really wish for something to happen, it will happen. The "big cat" will help you get your biggest desires.

  1. The Shadow of the Wind is one of my favorite books as well! You can never have too many winklepickers ;) And I would also love to go to Wave Gotik Treffen. It seems so far away, me being on the other side of the Atlantic XD I highly recommend visiting Sweden though I'm a little biased having been there so often. Stockholm is one of my favorite cities. (Vancouver in Canada being another) And Canada has great skiing :D

    1. Cool, you've been in so many places! I had a chance to go to WGT this year because I am finally in Germany and Leipzig s an hour away from Lerlin, but unfortunately I couldn't allow myself to spend so much. Ah well next year!

  2. D'aww thanks for tagging me. Shadow of the Wind= this was JUST recommended to me and all my friends are reading it. I guess I have to check it out now! A Clockwork Orange--yeah, I love the slang in the book. I know russian too and I REALLY loved the wordplay going on. It was fantastic.

    1. oh yeah! and I did the tagged post: http://themutantstompfriends.blogspot.com/2013/07/tagged-post.html

    2. Yay I'll check it out! had no idea you knew Russian! круто!;)

  3. Thank you so much for tagging me. c:

    And this post was very entertaining to read. :) I sympathize with you on the everyday tissue use. Also, Before I Go to Sleep sounds like a brilliant book. I'll have to add it to my list.

    1. Cool, thanks so much for participating :P
      Glad this was entertaining to you ^^

  4. I really would like to read a Clockwork Orange and One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest! Also, your quotes made me laugh. :)

    1. They are both amazing books!
      Quotes? You mean the sentences about life? They are funny alright, but in every joke there's a painful truth :)

  5. The consealor bit made me laugh hehe. That would be me too. Without it, I'm like Gaara from Naruto :P .

    About the citizenship, are you going for the Blue Card? It seems the only way to get a work visa in the E.U. as of now. I want to do the same whenever I stop procratinating and go to school for I.T.

    1. I thought you are German!
      No, we have a students Visa, it's the only easy way for people who don't have anything in common with the EU to live there. We hope we could study this year, and after studying we should be able to find a job and stay legally in Germany.

    2. I am German, but not a citizen. Unfortunately, I was born in the states. If I could gain contact with my family in München, then I might have a chance of being able to live there, but as of now, I can not.

      I thought that if you have a student visa, you can work part-time while you study? I want to move there is well, hopefully this won't be a pipe dream. :P

    3. Oh I see. I could work only next year, currently not... So I need to bring a lot of savings with me.
      But if you have family in Muenchen then maybe you could have a chance to get a citizenship through them, but am not sure how that works...

  6. So funny, I am at the moment reading Orwell's 1984. :) I totally agree with you about it. Thanks for tagging me!

    1. Cool, it would be interesting to hear your opinion about it.
      Gladly! ^^

  7. Aw, thanks for tagging me, I enjoyed reading your answers a lot! Isn't it funny how everyone seems to give tea as an answer for a thing they need every day?

    1. Cool, thanks for reading!
      I don't know it it's a common goth thing, but for me tea was always a typically russian thng ;)
