ANIMALS

Here are my favorite photos that I took of animals throughout 2010. 
This squirrel was climbing the wall of a sea side house in Manhattan Beach.
This kitten was walking down the street as I drove by in a car. I stopped to take its picture, it didn't mind.
This dog was trying to escape in the streets of  Williamsburg.
These sheep were eating grass on a hill in the East of Brandenburg.
This horse was eating grass on a field in Schlaubehammer.

walk through walls and talk to walls

bitter and frustrated over life, your life that is
did you ever come across a better way of doing this
you're my only source for love
you're the only reason why i'm lonely

keep on keep on dressing up as a ghost and walk through walls
talk to walls and stop looking for your happiness in shopping malls
you're my only source for love
you're the only reason why i'm crying

i'm dying while you keep on lying to yourself
this is where our story ends but it never should have
come this far

empty eyes and shallow smiles, try to cheat the truth some more
if you ever come back home it wont be like it was before
you're my only source for love
you're the only reason why i'm living

i'm dying while you keep on lying to yourself
this is where our story ends but it never should have
come this far

Brooklyn To Manhattan


This week I am moving from East Williamsburg, Brooklyn to my new apartment on the Upper East Side in Manhattan. I am very excited, because this is almost like a dream come true. I remember being a young teenager and wanting to live in New York and go to school here and go running in Central Park every morning. Thankfully my new apartment is just two blocks away from that fantasy. Today I looked at a few old photos of New York and fell in love with the city once again.











 I'm gonna be really fit.

Here is some LINDA MANZ appreciation time.

Linda Manz is by far one of the greatest actresses of all time. If you haven't seen "Out of the Blue" or "Days of Heaven", you should do that right away, and then you can also watch "Gummo", even if you are not a Harmony Korine fan, Manz does give a great performance in this movie. That said, "Days of Heaven" is also in my Top 10 of most beautifully shot movies ever. Now, appreciate:

Vada Sultenfuss


Who was your style icon when you were ten years old? 

Mine was Vada Sultenfuss. I give you a collection of screencaps with her outfits throughout the movie "My Girl". 


(One more thing said: I just watched the 30 ROCK episode that Anna Chlumsky was in... I must say, she still is very pretty and looks just the same. It is really funny how some people don't lose their face. Like literally. I had 3 faces in my life already. At age 22 I went back to having the face I had when I was 3. It's hilarious...)
I also would really appreciate if you would Follow my blog with bloglovin ! Yup!

This is about things I like.


My name is Anna Conrad. I am a 23 year old German female with a lot of interests. Right now, I'm a student for broadcast journalism in New York. At some point in my life, I was a bartender, singer, trade fair admission supervisor, dj, photographer, singer, musician, acting agents' assistant, photographer's assistant, coat check girl, theater actress, tambourine player, nanny, and a bunch of other things.

There is a tremendous amount of things that I like to do.

I want to make movies.
I am a collector of many things.
I like discovering treasures.
I make collages.
I write postcards and letters.
I receive postcards and letters.
I do screen printing.
I make drinks.
I do watercolors.
I do acrylic art.
I sew stuffed animals.
I bake cakes.
...and a lot of other things.

What is this blog going to be about? I want to make another collection. A collection of things, that I truly like. It is easier this way, trust me. Write me, if you have questions. And because this is supposed to be somewhat personal as well, here is a photograph of me



 on a trip through Eastern Europe with my parents and our VW Passat, somewhat around 1994:
