Hello everyone, and welcome to my new website :)
It was considered a good idea to have this website in English as most of my family and future friends have that language in common. It would be kind of taxing to keep several websites in all the different languages of the people in my life, being a busy little person with lots of growing and learning to do, so I hope you'll be fine with English. :)
I'm not quite ready to make my grand debut, but the day approaches fast. Faster and faster, my mum would say, but I don't really have a sense of time yet, so I'm not sure what that means. I'm due to arrive on the 23rd of November, though no one knows whether I will decide to come that particular day, or sometime before or after!
My mum is still getting everything ready, and of course everyone is very excited to meet me. And everyone is very excited to see whether their guess of my being a boy or a girl turned out to be correct. And even their guess of which day I decide to make my birthday. In fact, my mum has a list going to keep record of these guesses. (She will post that list soon!)
I don't have a name yet. Well, I do have a name, everyone has a name... But my mum hasn't quite figured out which one belongs to me! I'm sure she'll know once we can communicate face to face :) Not that we haven't been communicating. I do have my preferences already, and I make them quite clear in many ways. One of the very important ones is my music preference!
I love music. If things get too quiet, I get bored. I particularly like classical music that isn't too dramatic. There are some exceptions, some very serious, heavy songs that I do like to listen to. But most of the time, I like something light and beautiful, preferably with harp or violins. Then I gently move to the music and enjoy... and relax. I like nature sounds, though I sometimes find them a bit strange. No wonder, I've no idea what to connect these sounds to ;) I also like African drumming, several kinds of oriental music, Celtic music and so on and so forth...
I also like several bands and my mum says I have good taste. Muse is a particular favourite, whenever it is played for me I get excited and move to the music. Other artists I like include Air, Joanna Newsom (as mentioned above, I love harps... probably influenced by my mum playing for me since I was just a tiny peanut!), the Pixies, and most things by James Horner and Hans Zimmer. Oh, and Hayao Miyazaki film music. Most film music, really. There are many others, my mum just has a hard time remembering the list right now ;)
I like it when my mum sings as well. She doesn't like writing it, but it's true :p
I don't like aggressive music... it makes me scared. Same as very loud noises. Anything with grinding metal sounds and aggressive lyrics does not make me happy at all. I guess I'm a peaceful person.
So now you know most everything about my love for music! I hope you take time and listen to it at least a little while every day. It's important for the soul.
Be sure to check for a new post or two very soon! :)
Much love, from Skaffolding and Tanja
