Especially soccer

Hey guys,
I am still alive, but I have to keep it short because I don’t want to miss much of the 2 games of Group B in the WWC. The bad thing is that the WWC takes place when it’s – Germany shot his 2nd goal right now 🙂 – really late often in the night. Unfortunately I fall asleep very often! At the weekend I even slept ’til 12 pm so that I do not fall asleep but you guessed it I fell asleep. I really really wanted to watch the games of the US girls – I really like the players but my ultimate favorite player is ALEX MORGAN – but I fell asleep, The first time I saw the second half, the second time I saw the repetition of the game the day after it took place. I hope so(lo) much that I am able to stay awake to see the whole third game. I am mad that I was awake until 3 am yesterday but I bet I will fall asleep so much earlier today so I will miss the games of the Group A. But that was enough about football I cannot believe that I wrote an A- in poltics. Last semester I got a D-. I am so happy. Apropos in history – my favorite subject together with German and English. So nervous because of the English exam on wednesday and the Latin exam on friday. This week I have maths tutoring 3 times ’cause my private tutor thinks I need every help I can get. Ok I am really bad in maths right now I have an E+. I need a B- to pass maths this year. I was worried because I was too bad in 5 subjects but I passed already Biology and History. I try to write this week again! Have a nice (soccer) day!BECCA (It’s 4:0 for Germany now!)

P.S. I started watching Starcrossed now. Such a cool TV series! Unfortunately there is just one season!

Soccer

So yesterday I watched the Champions League Final. Unfortunately there was no German team in the final which took place in the GERMAN capital Berlin. At first I didn’t care who win but then I rooted for Barca because they have the German goalkeeper Andre Marc ter Stegen. I thought that Barca wins after the first half but then Juve shot a goal too and I was like “Oh it gets excited, maybe we see penalty shootout (I really like penalty shootouts! :)) I am so happy that Twitter was invented, without it it would have been so boring. The bad thing is that I do not get much of the game or TV show when I am on Twitter. And if I am on Twitter, then I am badly active and tweet a lot. After the final the coverage about the FIFA Women’s World Cup started with one of my favorite German football player (who is unfortunately injured) Kim Kulig.https://i1.wp.com/www.hsv.de/fileadmin/redaktion/Teams/HSV_frauen/Bildermix_2009_10/KimKulig.jpg

Then the game Canada versus China PR started. I saw the first half and it was a bit boring and I was tired. I mean the game began at midnight and I got up at 7am that day. Unfortunately I fell asleep when the second half started. My parents turned the TV off and got me a pillow. I woke up at 4:50am and turned the TV on right away. So I saw the last ten minutes and missed this goal aswell as I missed the Canadian one by C. Sinclair (by a penalty!!!). After that I went to bed asap because I have to stay up late today too because of the German game against Cote D’Ivoire. But first I watched the match Norway – Thailand (4:0). Sadly Thailand lost effectively. I had not much time so I ate dinner (tuna salad) while watching the game which was NOT broadcasted in TV. What check! But I am really looking forward to the first game of the German team. I hope most of you watch it, too!!! Have a nice day/evening! Becca

A little reminder

To all the soccer fans out there:
Today’s the final of the Champions League in Berlin. There are playing Juventus Turin and FC Barcelona. I am really excited although unfortunately no German team is in the final. But bad news: In Germany are bad thunderstorms. We had our already this night. The thunder was so loud that our houses shook. And the weathermen said there should be one right when the game should start…
But something more important is that today is the first game of the Women’s World Cup in Canada! The first game starts at 23pm GMT. I am so excited. My favorite female football player is Alex Morgan from the USA. I even collect the Panini Stickers and you can guess who my first sticker was… You are right: ALEX MORGAN!https://i0.wp.com/leaveit2divac.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/03/Alex-Morgan-18.jpg

Loic Nottet

If you read the post before, you know who I am talking about. He is not just good looking but very sympathic. He is 19 years old and wrote the melody of rhythym inside by himself. I found a very good video about him on Youtube: Loic Nottet ❤
He took part in the last season of the Voice Belgium. I listen to his song since the ESC. I love it! I cannot believe he just got on the 4th place! He is soooo cute!!! And i am jealous that he can eat without getting fat!

Eurovision Song Contest 2015 in Vienna

There is one thing I want to write so badly although it happened 2 weeks ago: the Eurovision Song Contest 2015, which took place in Vienna this year because Conchita Wurst won with her song “Rise like a phoenix” last year.https://i2.wp.com/i.huffpost.com/gen/1771314/images/o-CONCHITA-WURST-facebook.jpgI really really enjoy watching the ESC. I always look forward to it, don’t watch the semifinals or listen to the songs before because I want to get surprised. Unfortunately I am the only one in my family, who likes the ESC. This year neither my sister nor my mother were at home, only my father but he stayed almost the whole time in the basement. I watched like every year the German Countdown to the ESC which begins an hour before the competition. This time Barbara Schöneberger was the moderator and the presentress of the German points, too.https://i2.wp.com/bilder.t-online.de/b/73/56/73/36/id_73567336/610/tid_da/barbara-schoeneberger-ist-esc-expertin-.jpgThere were not only talked about the chances to win the ESC but also about the two semifinals and there were music acts like the German ESC winner 2010 Lena with her great song “Traffic lights”:
Traffic lights – Lena on Youtube
Another songs I liked from the Countdown Show were “All die schönen Dinge” (All these great things) by Ferris MC. Actually i didn’t liked the song at first but then I had an earwig and it wasn’t at bad as I thought at first and “Flash mich” by Mark Foster (both songs are in German:)):
Flash mich – Mark Foster
Ferris MC even at the Countdown Show
But know enough from the Countdown… Now to the importanat part of the evening!!!
First was Slovenia with “Here for you” by Maraaya. It was catchy but not my favorite.
Second was France with “N’oubliez Pas” by Lisa Angell. It was not my style of music.
Third was Israel with an 16-years-old boy, who looked like a 26 year old, named Nadav Guedj with “Golden boy”. This one was a great party song.
Fourth was Estonia with “Goodbye to yesterday” by Elina Born and Stig Rästa which was just a different but good love song.
Fifth was Great Britain with Electro Velvet and “Still in love with you”. Really bad singing and song.
Sixth was Armenia with the great song “Face the shadows” by Genealogy. It was about the big murder in Armenia approx. 100 years ago.
Seventh was Lithuania with Monika Linkyte and V. Baumila with their song “This time”.She has an interesting dress and their kiss was a bit irratating. I think they thought the whole time about their kiss. The song was okay.
Eighth was Serbia with an okay song and annoying dancers: “Beauty never lies” by Bojana Stamenov.
Ninth were Morland and Deborah Scarlett with “A monster like me” for Norway. The song sounds whiny but Deborah Scarlett is a good singer.
Tenth was Sweden with Mans Zelmerlöw and “Heroes”. Two things I noticed not until the next day: I knew Mans Zelmerlöw before. His song “Cara Mia” is part of my Wii Karaoke game and that his song “Heroes” sounds like David Guetta’s “Lovers on the sun”. Maybe because of this I really liked the song. Also his performnce was great!
Eleventh was Cyprus with “One thing I should have done” by J. Karayiannis. Really bad!
Twelveth was Guy Sebastian with his awesome song “Tonight again” for Australia. I really liked the exception this year that Australia was able to participate too because they are so loyal watchers and their song was great.
Thirtenth was my – in retroperspective – my favorite LOIC NOTTET with “Rhythym inside” for Belgium. And this is a moment where I regret that I haven’t learned French.
Fourtenth was the host country Austria with the Makemakers and “I am yours”. It was a bit boring.
Fiftenth was “One last breath” by Maria E. Kyriakou for Greece. Sounded like every other ballad.
Sixtenth was Montenegro and “Adio” by Knez. I am still wondering why I liked this song.
Seventh was – finally – GERMANY with Ann-Sophie and “Black Smoke”. I really like the song. It sounds a bit like Amy Winehouse. I cannot understand why she didn’t get a single point for it. She even is a good singer! Black Smoke – Ann-Sophie (Germany)
Eightenth was Poland with Monika Kuszynska and the extreme boring song “In the name of love”.
Nintenth was Aminata (the juries’ favorite) with “Love injected” for Latvia. She looked like a 12-years-old!
Twentieth was Voltaj and “De la Capat” for Romania. Not good!
After that it was Spain’s turn with “Amanecer” by Edurne. The dress and the dance were so confusing I didn’t listen to the song!
Twentysecond was “Wars for nothing” by Boggie for Hungary. Message great, song not.
Twentythird was Nina Sublatti with “Warrior” for Georgia. Georgia often has such Rock songs! Was not bad.
Twentyfourth was Azerbaijan with Hour of the wolf by Elnur Huseynov. Was not good but not bad. The best song from Azerbaijan participated 2009: Always – Aysel and Arash ESC 2009 (Azerbaijan)
Twentyfifth was Russia with “A million voices” by Polina Gagarina. The song was such a powerful and excellent ballad by a beautiful singer.
Twentysixth was Albania with Elhaida Dani and “I’m alive”. If she sung better the song would have been better.
The last one was Italy with its classic song “Il volo” by Grande Amore (The audience’s favorite). It was not bad but of course not the best.
So to sum up 1 point for Italy.
2 points for Estonia
3 points for Slovenia
4 points for Georgia
5 points for Armenia
6 points for Israel
7 points for Russia
8 points for Australia
10 points for Belgium from Becca
and 12 points go to Sweden, which won in the end. But when it won I don’t liked the song anymore because it sounds like “Lovers on the sun” and Sweden already won so often!!! But okay. Here are the links to my Top4 ESC 2015 songs:A million voices – Polina Gagarina (Russia)
Tonight again – Guy Sebastian (Australia)
Rhythym inside – Loic Nottet (Belgium) THE ULTIMATE EARWIG!
Heroes – Mans Zelmerlöw (Sweden) WINNER

This was the ESC 2015. The only thing I am mad about is that Austria and Germany does not get one point!
