Farvel København! / Goodbye Copenhagen!
My little trip to Copenhagen has come and gone. This colourful city was full of life and love. I spent the Saturday the 16th to till today, Wednesday the 20th visiting different touristy sights throughout the city. I was fortunate to meet a sweet British boy who works as an au pair in Denmark and he showed me some really cool spots around the city. Outside of our time together I did some fun excursions on my own. My highlight of the trip was renting a bike for the day and searching for the giants. Now, although I only found 2 of the 6, I enjoyed getting outside of the city centre and exploring the outskirts of Copenhagen looking for giants in the woods. Stay tuned for more pictures from Denmark soon!
The hostel I stayed in was the Generator, which is a popular chain of hostels throughout Europe. It was a clean, new hostel but I wish my anxiety didn't hold me back as much as it does when it comes to social situations. I feel like my trip would be a different experience if I wasn't so hesitant to approach people or engage in conversation, but I'm much more comfortable doing my own thing and not starting conversation with people. I find that I think too much, therefore I often find it difficult engaging in conversation with strangers when it's a big group. Put me on a one-on-one date with someone and I'll do fine. This is just another aspect of myself that I'm still trying to understand and accept. I think I put a lot more pressure on myself than I realize. Pressure to perform and live up to some expectations.
I'm back in Berlin now, with not much of a plan. Talking purpose and plans, as much as I'm trying to be in the moment, I'm finding it difficult without a clear direction. I don't know if I should be looking for a job, traveling and enjoying myself, I'm not sure where to turn next. The ambiguity of this trip plays games with me, sometimes I love it and it excites me but the next minute it scares the shit out of me and makes me want to come back. I feel like this blog posts are starting to get really whiny and annoying...I just have to keep reminding myself that this blog is for me and my mental well-being. It's a journal which happens to be public because I know what it's like to be in the darkest bouts of depression with nobody to relate to. Whenever I found somebody's story that I could relate to I felt a little bit better.
Neue Bop: Cold Blood by Bruno Major
This artist is a new discovery. I don't know much about him but this song is pretty rad. I'm not sure how I what genre I would classify him. It sounds like he has influences of pop, r&b, maybe a bit of electronic, soul, it's difficult to pinpoint his music just off this one song so I'm going to give the rest of his stuff a listen and update you.
