Well, it’s been exactly one year since my last entry here.
A lot has happened but as the internet is not the same as it was 10+ years ago, I cannot describe most of it here. I have been toying with the idea of starting an anonymous half fictional, half true events blog somewhere else but I’m still not sure…
It’s been a roller-coaster of a year. I love my job and I have the most awesome colleagues, I’m happy sharing an apartment with a friend (although occasionally I long for a space which is entirely my own) and personal life has been… uh, let’s say “interesting”. I’ve done things I never thought I would do and some things I didn’t even dare hope I would get to do. I have faced challenges and overcome them successfully but there have also been times when I’ve come very very close to the dangerous edge. There’s been happiness and heartbreak, I’ve found people for myself and lost some, too. Manfred is still the best grump that has ever grumped and his wonderful mug has been immortalised on canvas forever now 🙂
I am extremely lucky to have such amazing friends and I sincerely wish that 2019 will be better for us all.
But now, the predictions! This time I decided to switch over to Spotify instead of Winamp, as I pretty much never listen to the mp3-s I have on my laptop these days. Also, my taste in music has changed a lot this year, among other things 🙂
The rules are simple: add all your music folders to your player of choice and set it on shuffle. The titles of tracks will be answers to the questions below. (I usually skip instrumental tracks but that is a personal preference.)
1. Where am I by the beginning of 2019?
Ed Sheeran & Beyoncé – Perfect Duet
Well, I found a man stronger than anyone I know
He shares my dreams, I hope that someday we’ll share a home
I found a love to carry more than just my secrets
To carry love, to carry children of our own
We are still kids, but we’re so in love
Fightin’ against all odds
I know we’ll be alright this time
Darling, just hold my hand
Be your girl, you’ll be my man
And I see my future in your eyes
Eh… I thought I did… but sadly, I was wrong.
2. My main task in 2019.
Marcy Playground – Sex & Candy
Hangin’ round downtown by myself
And I had too much caffeine
And I was thinkin’ ’bout myself
And then there she was
In platform double suede
Yeah there she was
Like disco lemonade
I smell sex and candy here
Who’s that lounging in my chair
Who’s that casting devious stares
In my direction
Mama this surely is a dream
Yeah mama this surely is a dream
LOL 😀 My main task is to have fun? Hell yeah!
3. Self-fulfillment in 2019, my “me” this year.
The Prodigy – Breathe
Breathe the pressure
Come play my game, I’ll test ya
Psychosomatic, addict, insane
Breathe the pressure
Guess I’ll try not to crack then?
4. Financial matters in 2019.
The Goo Goo Dolls – Iris
And I don’t want the world to see me
‘Cause I don’t think that they’d understand
When everything’s meant to be broken
I just want you to know who I am
Perhaps I will win the lottery?
5. Relatives and neighbours in 2019.
White Zombie – More Human Than Human
I am the Astro-Creep a demolition style hell American freak yeah
I am the crawling dead a phantom in a box shadow in your head
Say acid suicide freedom of the blast read the fucker lies
Make me do it again, yeah
6. Home in 2019.
Stevie Ray Vaughan – Pride and Joy
Well I love my baby, like the finest wine
Stick with her until the end of time
She’s my sweet little thang, she’s my pride and joy
She’s my sweet little baby, I’m her little lover boy
Yes, please ❤
7. Love in 2019.
Shaft – Mucho Mambo (Sway)
When marimba rhythms starts to play
Dance with me, make me sway
Like the lazy ocean hugs the shore
Hold me close, sway me more
So, maybe not terrible for once? 😀 😀
8. Health in 2019.
A Tribe Called Quest – We The People
The fog and the smog of news media that logs
False narratives of Gods that came up against the odds
We’re not just nigga rappers with the bars
It’s kismet that we’re cosmic with the stars
You bastards overlooking street art
Better yet, street smarts but you keep us off the charts
So motherfuck your numbers and your statisticians
Fuck y’all know about true competition?
That’s like a AL pitcher on deck talking about he hittin’
The only one who’s hitting are the ones that’s currently spittin’
We got your missy smitten rubbing on her little kitten
Dreaming of a world that’s equal for women with no division
9. Partnership in 2019.
Tiësto & Dzeko – Jackie Chan
She say she’s too young, don’t want no man
So she gon’ call her friends, now that’s a plan
I just ordered sushi from Japan
Now your bitch wanna kick it, Jackie Chan
Lol, no marriage coming up, it seems 😀
10. Loans, mysticism and sex in 2019.
Metallica – Master of Puppets

Robbie Williams – I Will Talk And Hollywood Will Listen
Ooh, I’ve never been to the US of A… One can hope.
12. Career and new work-related commitments in 2019.

13. Friends and social affairs in 2019.
Levski – Luna

14. Secrets and processes in the subconscious in 2019.
A Great Big World ft Futuristic – Hold Each Other
Everything looks different now
All this time my head was down
He came along and showed me how to let go
I can’t remember where I’m from
All I know is who I’ve become
That our love has just begun like oh
15. Where am I by the end of 2019?
