Reflection – 2nd Semester

I enjoyed every lesson we had this semester. I appreciated it, that we had so much free work time. I used it for my portfolio and it helped me to get forward with my work. Unfortunately, we won’t have any more lessons with you, which makes me sad. But we got introduced to a new teacher and he seems nice. I hope it’s going to be as fun as it was with you.

Anyways, my goal for next year is passing the Cambridge Advanced Exam. I’m sure I’d pass the First Certificate, but I’m motivated to go a step higher right away. So I have high hopes on the next year.

All in all, it was a fun year and I’d do it again without hesitation.

Text – Ghost in the Shell

Ghost in the Shell – Good or bad movie?

The US-American movie «Ghost in the Shell» came out in early 2017. One day I went out with my boyfriend and we decided to visit the cinema. We chose randomly which movie we wanted to see. So we hopped into the theater and were excited to see “Ghost in the Shell”.

I did not expect such a movie. The visuals and the sound are amazingly done, it’s stunning to look at. The story was okay. In my opinion, it’s just as good as every other US-American action movie. But not breath-taking or special at all. But exactly because of that, it got bad reviews. It’s not interesting enough. They completely forgot about how amazing the movie looks, how fascinating the visuals were.

For me, this movie is an artistic masterpiece, for others, it’s a disaster. Because I don’t see the story as the main element of this movie, it’s clearly the video and sound.

For me this move is an artistic masterpiece, for others, it’s a disaster. Because I don’t see the story as the main element of this movie, it’s clearly the video and sound that matters most, since it’s a pleasure to your eyes. 

Text – My Future

My future

There are many things I want to do in my life, I decided to write a text about it. It can be read sort of like a bucket list. First of all, I want to visit all my friends at least once, no matter where they live. So, if you take a look at my current circle of friends, I’ll have to travel through many parts of Europe. England, Scotland, Belgium, Serbia, Turkey, Germany, Sweden and many more.

After travelling, I’d like to own horses. But not just any kind of horse, I’d love to own an Icelandic horse. Or two, doesn’t matter. Also, I’d like to live in a small house with my husband. I can’t imagine having kids at the moment, but maybe one day I can’t think of something else.

My next goal is to get better at drawing. I want to improve my drawing skills until I’m satisfied with my work. To achieve that goal, I bought an iPad Pro with an iPencil. I really hope it will motivate me to continue drawing digitally. I also found some acrylic paint at home and I kind of got into it. Just sketching some rough pieces in about 15 minutes is truly fun.

Poem – Scared

Scared

I want to be alone,
but I am scared of being all by myself.
I want to socialize,
but I am scared of people.

I am scared.

Scared of life,
scared of death
and scared of what comes after it.

Scared of sharing my feelings, scared of suffering alone.
Scared of being myself, scared of changing myself.
Scared of showing my scars, because people would mock me with it.
Scared of hiding my scars, because it only leads to more of them.

I am scared

Are you scared?
Because I am.

I am scared.

Lyrics – Windswept by Crywolf

English

On that night under the staircase
Our arms drifting down
Your kiss made me a believer
Cleansed my sins somehow
I’ll be what you need
I’ll keep you inside my fortress
Hand you the keys
Leave you to roam these walls

But you tore down the keeps
I returned to find ruins
You left all my love in the rubble with these walls

But in my head
I am still there
I can still feel you
Breathing slow
I’ve known this dream for a long time
In the air
Suspended here
With thousands of words we’ve spoken
Can I soar?
Up through the clouds?
Leave all of this behind?

But in my head
I am still there
I can still feel you
Breathing slow
I’ve known this dream for a long time

All alone
I feel your breath
I hear your whisper
Dark like storms
Telling me: „Dear, I’ll never leave your mind“

And you’ve been there all along
Tugging me, pulling me down
Touching him, holding him close
You’ve made your home
Could I still love you?
Though my arms are breaking
Could we still be alone?

Do I still know you?
Are you still my answer?
To the question I’ve asked since I was born

German

In der Nacht unter der Treppe
unsere Arme legen sich
dein Kuss machte mich zu einem Gläubigen
bereinigte meine Sünden
Ich werde sein was du brauchst
Ich werde dich in meiner Festung halten
Gebe dir die Schlüssel
Lasse dich die um die Wände streifen

Doch du hast meine Festung zerstört
Ich kehre zurück, nur um Ruinen zu finden
Du hast meine Liebe in den Trümmern der Mauern zurückgelassen.

Aber in meinem Kopf
Bin ich immer noch da
Kann dich immer noch fühlen
langsam atmen
Ich kenne diesen Traum bereits eine lange Zeit
In der Luft
aufgehängt
Mit tausenden Wörter die wir gesprochen haben
Kann ich mich erheben?
Durch die Wolken?
All das zurücklassen?

Aber in meinem Kopf
Bin ich immer noch da
Kann dich immer noch fühlen
langsam atmen
Ich kenne diesen Traum bereits eine lange Zeit

Ganz allein
Ich fühle deinen Atem
Ich höre dein Geflüster
Dunkel wie Stürme
sagt zu mir: «Liebling, ich werde niemals deinen Verstand verlassen»

Und du warst da, von Anfang an
Zerrst mich, ziehst mich runter
Berührst ihn, halte ihn Nahe
Du hast dir dein Zuhause gemacht

Und ich sehe dein Gesicht durch seine Augen
Mit jeder Bewegung deiner Hüften
brichst du mir meine Knochen
Während du mich als Geisel haltest.
Kann ich dich noch immer lieben?
Auch wenn meine Arme brechen
Könne wir noch immer alleine sein?

Kenne ich dich noch?
Bist du noch immer meine Antwort?
Auf die Frage die ich stelle seit ich geboren bin
