Christmas Wishing

Screen Shot 2015-11-29 at 15.57.51

Christmas is quickly approaching and as such you get asked that super annoying question over and over again: ‘What do you want for Christmas?’
In my family we have taken it upon ourselves to send a very long a detailed list of what we’d like to our family chat on whatsapp, but I thought I’d make it a bit more complicated for them and upload what I want here!

So there you go dearest family and friends, this is what I want for Christmas this lovely year.
Love you all! x

Life is GREAT.

Hi guys!

There’s a new theme again, I wasn’t really feeling the other one so I’m going to give this one a try, I think I can work with it but let me know what you guys think as well!

I was just talking to a friend and it just hit me like a ton of bricks, life is quite great at the moment!

I’m studying a course at university that I really really bloody enjoy. You couldn’t imagine all the things I’m learning! I know this might sound super obvious because of it being uni and what not, but they’re quite literally shaping my future. Doing homework and attending lectures doesn’t feel like something I have to do, it feels like something I want to do, something that gets me excited to get up in the mornings and get ready even if I know I’m going to be at uni until 8pm.. I’ve never felt that way about school before so it’s amazing.

The amount of new people I’ve met these past eight weeks at uni also amazes me. So many inspiring people who do so many different things and they all love those things with the same passion as I love putting on events and running around like a crazy person whilst working at one. I’d never met people who feel that same passion for something. I’m not only talking about other students but about teacher as well. One-on-one meetings with my teachers always leave me super inspired to do something bigger and better than myself, which in my opinion is exactly what a teacher should make you feel, inspired and ready to work even harder.

Uni isn’t the only great thing about my life right now. I’m getting back in to my social-self. When I lived back in Spain I used to have so many friends my mother had issues keeping up with who was who (and she’s quite good with keeping up!) and I’m getting back to that, to knowing a lot of people and making friends, so many friends! That just feels amazing after a year and a half of two friends (not that I don’t appreciate them two). So, new and old friends, I love you all so much and your simple company makes me smile every day!

Then there’s work, I absolutely love my job. For you who don’t know I used to work at Subway and that sucked so much, but luckily I got hired at the Hammersmith Eventim Apollo which is a huge venue here in London. Have you put two and two together? I love events and I’m working at a venue, it could not get better! Granted, I’m working bar at least until January but I knew before getting in that I’d have to work my way up and get experience so I’m totally ok with it. I get to work at a very known, old and important venue which makes me so happy every time I think about it!

My colleagues at work are amazing as well, every day I get to work with different people and in a different place in the venue which is great, you’re never bored, there’s always something to do, someone new to talk to and get to know. People I work with are so different, they might just have that job, or have two jobs, or study and work like myself. There’s dancers, musicians, vocalists, actors and actresses, there’s people that study psychology… The other day I went to “the pub” with some of the people from work, got home at 3am and was exhausted the day after but it was so worth it, to get to know some of these people outside work, I had a blast!

And yeah, that’s it. Life is great and I just needed to rant about it a bit 😀

Enjoy your day you beautiful human and I will be back whenever I have time!

New Theme.

I hope everyone is having an amazing Wednesday!

So, as you might see there’s a few changes in the look of the blog. I have yet to decide if I’m 100% convinced with it but I was bored with the other one so I decided it was time to change it around a bit.

I do want to know what you guys think of it, do you like it more or is it completely horrible?

Let me know loves! x

Missing friends.

I’m so emotional today.

Woke up and felt well rested, then after studying a bit I logged in to facebook and found myself looking through old photos from back in Sweden.. I find myself missing Sweden, my friends and memories there more than I miss Spain, I don’t know if that’s because I’m so used to being away from Spain since It’s been four and a half years since I moved and only one and a half since I moved from Sweden.. It’s still a long time though so I don’t know what it is, I just miss Sweden and my amazing friends from back home..

I’m now so emotional that I have decided to share a bunch of old photos of me and my friends having an amazing time back in Sweden because I just miss them so fucking much.

Great Wall Of China Trek.

I have been wanting to do this forever now.

Explanation time! If you don’t watch my youtube videos (which you honestly should!) then you will have no idea what I’m talking about, so here we go: I want to walk the Great Wall of China this coming May and I want to walk it for charity.

As you all know by now, or you should know, I’m a very big supporter of Believe in Magic, a charity that helps ill kids get a little bit of magic in their lives and it’s run only by Meg and her mother Jean, they do everything. When I first heard of Believe in Magic I was amazed of all the hard work these two amazing ladies put in to it and I immediately wanted to help. I have donated and attended two charity fundraiser events and offered to volunteer if they ever needed any help but I still don’t feel like I’ve done enough, therefore I want to walk these 60km in the space of five days and try and raise at least £5000 for them.

I’m not going to lie to you, China is a place that has always fascinated me, specially the Wall and that’s why I wanted to walk it and not do something else whilst trying to raise money for BiM. It’s also very expensive to go therefore I’m not only going to be saving a lot of my own money but I’m looking for sponsors, so if you know of any send them my way please!

The trek itself is 9 days where days 1 and 9 are spent travelling, day 8 visiting the city of Beijing and the rest of the days walking an average of 12km per day. If you click right HERE you will be taken to a page where you can see the exact itinerary for the trip.

Now, how can you get involved? That’s a very good question that I have a very good answer to: you can donate right here -> DONATE HERE! The page I chose to set up my donation site is called justgiving.com and you can read more about them clicking right HERE. The money will go straight to them when I get back from my trip, I’m looking to send it over to them at the end of May.

As I said before I’m an university student and I study Music Business so I’ll be trying to arrange charity concerts and other events during these coming months to raise even more money but I really need your help! During my trip I will take it upon myself not only to walk up and down thousands of stairs but also to film throughout the days and upload it once I get back.

I’m very excited about doing this and I can honestly not wait, but if I’m going to make this happen I need your help, whatever you can give helps and I know together we can reach even more than the goal I’ve set.

Last OTRA Tour Concert – One Direction

I’ll admit it, I cried.

So, Saturday was One Directions last OTRA Tour concert before their break. I was lucky enough to attend the concert with my friend Kauthar who had tickets and asked me to go with her.

We arrived late Friday night and went straight to the hotel to drop our things and head out for dinner. When we did this we realised how ridiculously close we were to the arena where the boys were playing which was amazing haha!

The next day we got up and had breakfast, went for a little walk and then got ready to go to the concert. The adrenaline was starting to kick in and I was feeling the pre-concert nerves and excitement. When we got in we found our seats and waited for the boys to come on stage.

Jamie Lawson was their opening act (he’s the first one to be singed to Gingerbread Man Records which is Ed Sheerans record label) and he was amazing, just an acoustic act with nothing but himself and a guitar on stage but still amazing! He sang a cover of the boys “More Than This” and the whole crowd sang along and I cried. At this point I realised that what I’m going to miss the most, appart from the boys, is that sense of being part of something, of a fandom, a family. Us together, all us directioners if you like, we are like a family, I’ve met so many amazing people through the boys and going to their concerts that it breaks my heart that I won’t be able to do that in a year..

When the boys came on the excitement was almost unbearable, let’s be honest, I lost my shit. I can’t remember every detail now because it was two days ago and I was an emotional wreck but I have a bunch of videos and there might be a concert video coming up on Friday over on youtube.com/annancarms95, just saying, you might want to keep an eye out for that!
What I can remember though is all of the boys repeating that “It’s the last concert of this tour” and Niall clearly saying “We can’t tell you when we’ll be back, but we can promise you that we will”.
Liam cried during WDBHG asking before “Who here has a broken heart? Me too, it’s ok. This is Where Do Broken Hearts Go” and after the song Louis came up to him saying “I know it’s the last concert of this tour Payno but no need to cry” obviously trying to help Liam hide the fact that he was crying over the “Sophiam” breakup.
During Act My Age Liams dad, Juian (one of the boys songwriters) and a bunch of the boys friends made a conga to the front of the b-stage and danced their asses off with the boys. They replayed the end of Act My Age like seven time and the whole arena went crazy, including the boys and their friends and family in the front line, proving again that the boys are “terrible terrible dancers”
When Harry’s WMYB solo came the boys stood in a line holding each other and it was beautiful! This is when I started crying
The last song was DMD and just before that Niall thanked everyone, including the boys saying something like “I want to thank the boys, thank you for having me, I’ve had so much fun. I love you boys so much” then they had a group hug which broke all of our hearts! During DMD there was a moment when Liam was singing and he looked at each of the boys making eye contact with them and nodding as in a “thank you boys” kind of way which just made me cry even more.
When they were done singing they all hugged individually, got the band down on the main stage, the all took a bow, thanked the crowd and just like that One Direction disappeared backstage for the last time in a year.

I cried, I was dying because I wasn’t getting enough air because I was crying so much… I have never cried during a concert but the boys have been such a big part of this year, me attending four concerts and what not, that it feels surreal that I’m not going to see them live in at least a year.. Sad times!
But the boys deserve a break, not a lot of artist release an album every year and do a tour every year. From the moment they left their houses for the xFactor audition more five years ago they haven’t stopped for a second doing promo, tour, books, movies, albums… They deserve a break, they deserve to relax and breathe and come back when they’re ready.

We will miss you like crazy boys, but you deserve this so enjoy your break! ❤
