On cold, rainy days like these I like to sit at home, reading a magazine. Currently the Kinki magazine. In their editorial they asked us, the readers, what keeps us going on dark days like these. What gives us motivation, inspiration, imagination. For me it’s definitely not my school books (which are waiting to be read). Also not a rain dance. Or my bed – it rather temps me to stay in there forever.
What keeps me going on (or even just waking up) are photos, good music, exciting articles… all these cultural stuff.
My list (yes, a list again) of inspiring things on cold, rainy, dark winter days:
- The Grease soundtrack: (for example this:) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zHFbhhi_XVc
- Books like The Bride’s Farewell by Meg Rosoff or So Yesterday by Scott Westerfeld
- The Kinki magazine (http://kinkimag.com/) with creative photography like these: or cool recommendations like this one: http://kinkimag.com/articles/handbuch-fur-spione/ (for English readers: Guide for Spies)
- This blog with its amazing photography: http://laurenlibor.wordpress.com/
But you know what’s best? What gives me motivation, each day and each week (not that there are already many of them): You. It’s really, really nice to have actual people reading my blog and commenting it as well. It supports me, because after almost 2 weeks, I’ve already posted all of my ideas and it’s getting hard to find topics to write. So sorry for my posts recently, they weren’t very interesting or well-written. But I’m trying to improve my posts. Promise.
So, a great, great thanks to all of you! You’re the greatest support these days.
