Interview with Crystal Fighters.

 I discovered them in 2010 when me and my friends experienced all that summer festival craziness for the first time. Crystal Fighters' performance was magic, their music was just something our young wild soles were striving for. I remember in the middle of the gig it started raining and that was such a relief in the incredible Lithuanian summer heat. The mix of fresh air, music, wild dances and best friends around was one of the most incredible moments in my life.

 Crystal Fighters were special, however not being a particular music freak I just let it go. I had their tunes on my playlist ever since, but that was it. 
(At least I thought so..)


But you know life, things just happen. I've got to film an interview with Gilbert from Crystal Fighters and just by accident my name appeared on guest list for their performance in Glasgow. 

 And while their music has obviously changed, it's still so incredibly bewitching. 
Being the part of the crowd I realized how much things have changed in just 3 years. All hard work pays off and being in the place where I have all these random opportunities I am so happy to know that I'm on the right track and still able to be happy in such an amusing way.

Balloch.

Every now and then I do my 'let's travel somewhere' talk. But there are essays and exams, day and night shifts, friends' birthdays and just generally lazy days and so it goes on and on and get's pretty annoying after a while. Today, however, it finally worked out and we escaped from Glasgow.



 I used my camera for the first time after the freshers' week and it was a wonderful time to do it. Weather was lovely (in a Scottish way :D) and even though Conor was freezing we end up sharing an ice cream...
 I kept telling funny stories from when I was a child and Conor got to take 'artsy' pictures. Such a happy day.
 I will definitely try to have more 'no studying' days next year as it is such a relief!!

One happy day

I didn't expect second year to be so challenging, so demanding and overwhelming. Catching every possible chance and using all opportunities I got so tired, a bit miserable as well. Being responsible and organized is hard sucks. While so much stuff happened to me these past few months, I got lost in all responsibilities and chores and just couldn't evaluate how important and valuable all that experience was. Sitting in an empty quiet corner of the bookshop today I was reading some books from the section I always ignore. Hearing all the noise from outside I realized that I was separated from all that rush, people and traffic, enjoying quiet moment of doing something that I haven't planned before, ignoring timing and not needing to capture something because I was fully living the moment. I felt so happy. 
Those few minutes influenced all my day and made me do lots of things I wouldn't otherwise. I love these days of happiness after months of hard work. I most definitely love my second year of uni, so hard and challenging, but so rewarding after all. :)
