A blog run by Kaja that I have stumbled upon after we went to the same White Lies gig in Wembley last December. Her blog kinda gave me an idea to start blogging about music myself. She has a great open minded views on music and writes great album and gig reviews.

Now. I am supposed to reveal 10 facts about me (well except loving music of course) . Let’s see…
1. My first proper music crush was a band called HIM, when I was about 13/14.
2. I always wanted to be a script writer. I love films but was never really good at creating stories. (Could easily get the idea and start it off but developing it was another thing haha)
3. I love Jeff Buckley. It’s quite personal and hard to explain why his music, lyrics and quotes have had such an impact on me over the years. But the fact is that he’ll always be on the very top of my list.
4. I love animals. My favourites are gorillas and turtles. I am a member of Gorilla Organisation, which I’m really proud of.
5. I hate spiders. Although I try not to kill them, just catch them and take them outside (90 percent of the time 😉 ).
6. I always wanted to play a guitar and piano. Still didn’t get a chance.
7. I love country music and that’s why one of my dreams is to visit Nashville.
8. I am stubborn. I take advice and opinions on board but always do my own thing anyway…
9. Don’t know if it’s a fact but people tell me sometimes, that I’m nice to people that don’t deserve it. But don’t they really?
10. I’m passionate about way too many things. I wish I had more time for all of them.
