Nothing is impossible. Even the word itself says: I'm possible

My whole life all I have ever wanted to do is to share my thoughts and feelings through music and acting. I have always known that is what I wanted to do in my life. So why does it have to be so hard to be real for once. 

Every single one that I'm surrounded by, supports me in their own weird way saying: "Nicole, you're so good and you can do whatever you want in life - but lets be real! You also love traveling and exploring, and if you want to be an artist, that aint never going to happen". 

But even though I know it might be true, it brings tears to my eyes just thinking about it. Why cant they just understand that I want to work my ass off to get there, but I need some support to do it? Up until now I've seen and done most of the stuff on my to-do-list. I have wanted to live in the U.S since I was eighth years old and that happened when I turned 15. I've wanted a standing ovation for my performance and that happened as well. I know that I can get there, if I want to. 

Though lately I'm been so confused about who I really am. I basically used to think that I had my entire life planned out. Now, not so much. Maybe I'm changing completely or maybe I'm just having that midlife crisis, though I'm just 17... Not quite sure which one! I've always loved writing and wanted to be a journalist - that dream has never gone away. But now I'm starting to think that maybe teaching wouldn't be so bad. Still I have no idea how my life is gonna turn out. The only thing I know is that it will involve music, acting, dancing and writing. I'm gonna keep on dreaming and I think every one of you should, too.

Families may not be easy.... But they're worth it

Sometimes I sit down wondering why I came up with a blog in the first place.. Sometimes I wonder why I do not keep on writing. But then it hits me - I don't want people to know my every thought. Still I feel like this gives me the freedom and possibility to let out everything. Today I want to talk about families.

Living in a family can be tough, but mostly it is worth every single fight. I myself live in a family where we love each other very much, but each of us have our own problems, and sometimes they will interfere with the family.

Still I think it is very important that we all learn that living in a family is never easy, if we cant be ourselves and let out our inner thoughts. That said I do not just mean anger or sadness, but whatever comes right before that. Let your family know what is on your mind, before you go and blow up. This I think is the problem not only in my family but in many others as well. People don't know when it is okay to tell. But being in a family means being in a safe and comfortable environment. And if your family isn't like that, you all need to sit down and talk to each other. This is the only way that life will be good.

I'm not quite sure where I want this to go.. I guess I'm just trying to say: Appreciate the things you have and work on the ones that are not quite there yet. The important thing is to be positive.

Les Miserables

So I thought I was going to keep up on this blog.. Guess that didn't go so well, but I'm just so damn busy all the time.

Yesterday I went to the movies and watched Les Misérables. I've waited for this film for about a year now, and I could not have been more excited. But I must say that I thought it was absolutely remarkable, and personally I think that it is one of the best film adaptions of a musical. Instructor Tom Hooper knew exactly how to make every single emotion so real and pure, though there barely were any lines in there. It was almost singing only.

Hugh Jackman (Jean Valjean) and Anne Hathaway (Fantine) were truly my favourite actors. Though Jackman's singing wasn't exactly incredible, there was something in his voice that made you believe and feel every word he sang. He is an extraordinary actor of this generation. Anne Hathaway on the other hand, I did not expect any good voice from. But gosh she touched me in every phrase that she sang. Her voice was pure, insecure and pretty but yet mature. And whenever she sang "I Dreamed A Dream", I was bawling - my tears just poured out. Her acting as well was just amazing. She really has a gift, which she must have gotten from her mother, who played the same part on Broadway. Hathaway is an inspiration to any aspiring your actor or actress. At least I know that she is to me.

Of course the other actors were great, too. Isabelle Allen played the part of Young Cosette and her performance was more than memorable. She was so pure, and though her singing was amazing, it was still immature and pretty as supposed to. Amanda Seyfried then came and played Cosette later on. Her voice is as usual perfect. You can't put a finger on any note - it's just perfect. Theres not much to say. She was extremely good.

Russel Crowe (Javert), Eddie Redmayne (Marius) and Samantha Barks (Èponine) were all very surprising. I did not expect Crowe to have that good of a voice. His action was great as well - but he always is. Redmayne and Barks though put so much feeling and touch to their character. Both I have not heard of before (maybe I'm living in a cave), but that I thought was nice, because you didnt know what to expect.

Last is of course the incredible Sacha Cohen (Thénardier) and Helena Bonham Carter (Madame Thénardier). They were just perfect for this part. Could not imagine anyone else filling in for them. Can't say anything but the fact that those two are winning the hearts of the audience no matter what.
