#iZombie

Guys! You need to watch iZombie! If you haven't, go see it NOW. I obviously started watching it a few weeks ago because Bradley James is in it, and I was like "uuh I don't like zombies (read: HATE, am scared of etc) but I suppose I can put up with it just to see him act in something other than Merlin..." and within the first five minutes of watching only episode 5 with Brad I was surprised, shocked and amazed at that I actually thought it was good. Like as you all know I'm terrified of everything and zombies and blood and brains are on top of that list. 
 
 
HOWEVER, iZombie is not just about zombies. It's about a med student who turns in to a zombie and then has to try to cope with the changes that brings. She was living the perfect life with the perfect fiancée and had everything going for her, and now she's a zombie and she has to give everything up, but still try to keep her spirit up. And the great thing about this show is... it's really funny! Like SO funny! It's the perfect combination of funny and dramatic, and all the zombie stuff is not at all scary. So after I watched that 5th episode that introduced Bradley's character, I just went straight back to the start and watched it from the beginning. And today I just saw the latest episode that ended in such a cliffhanger I nearly fell off the chair. And then I thought "OH MY GOD THIS SHOW IS SO FUNNY AND SO AMAZING I HAVE TO BLOG ABOUT IT!" and here I am... I am also procrastinating since I really have to study today, but I can't focus until I get all this off my chest. 
 
So, to sum up- iZombie is a great show because it's funny, dramatic, starrs some really amazing actors like Rose McIver, Rahul Kohli, Malcolm Goodwin, Robert Buckley, David Anders and of course Bradley James. The show is different and exciting and if you (like I did) accidentally watch all episodes in one day you'll be going nutso waiting for the next one because this last one really stirred up some crazy emotions. I CAN'T BELIEVE I HAVE TO WAIT ANOTHER WEEK TO SEE IT! And also I just want to throw out a huge thank you to the internet for existing, otherwise I wouldn't be able to see it at all since obviously I live in Sweden and it's not airing here so... there's that. 
 
Anyways, enough with the procrastinating! Time to write a business plan, and time for all of you to watch iZombie!
Ciao!

MTV's European Music Awards

This morning I'm hanging out at my dad's house with sissy. We just finished watching the EMA's from last night and let's just say: Oh my gooosshhhhh!!! 
 
Great performances, great personalities, great winners... Found some cool pictures from the show on MTV's website (http://se.mtvema.com/bilder) and I figured I'd show you my favourites. 
 
 
Loads of plus points for Ariana Grande's super cool performance. It was exciting, filled with action and her great voice. Unfortunately said great voice gets some minus points because some of her songs make her sound really whiny, and I can't take that. Also... what the hell is she wearing?!
 
 
Ed Sheeran is as you might know one of my favourite singers at the moment and he definitely didn't disappoint. His performance was amazing. 
 
 
Alicia Keys might be the most beautiful pregnant person I've ever seen. She looked amazing and her performance shone if possible more than her dress itself. 
 
 
To top a great show off Simon Neil, Myles Kennedy and Slash performed together. No words are necessary, this performance was awesome! It kind of made me wish I would have seen it live. 
 
 
Did you guys see the EMA's? What did you think about the show? Comment below!
 
 

The Ride

 
Last night Demi Lovato was on MTV's The Ride. Obviously as you all know by now (if you don't, we must not know each other very well) I am obsessed with Demi. She's an amazing person, a great inspiration and probably the best role model out there. In The Ride she talks about her life and her career and everything that has happened to her. I've always loved her for her music and her incredible voice, but since she went public with all her personal problems I've just admired her strength. Even more now when I'm dealing with issues myself I can't help but wonder how she does it. I know how much strength it takes to stay positive when you're dealing with mental illness because I can't even do it myself. And she's so young! She's younger than me but so much wiser. 
 
Anyways, my point in all this rambling is that when I saw The Ride last night I was reminded again of how amazing Demi is. I was also reminded to stay strong. A lot of the time I simply don't have the energy to even try to make myself feel better. I feel lazy and I don't see the point in it. But Demi is an amazing inspiration and listening to her talk about working on herself makes me want to work harder too. Listening to her reminds me why I want to get out of this stupid depression and how much more I'll enjoy life when I get back to my "normal" self. This is why I want to get her book so bad but I can't afford it right now. It would be the perfect motivation for me to work harder to be able to read Demi's wise words every day :)
 
Now go to youtube and watch the full thing of The Ride and be amazed that people like Demi actually exist!
