I’m not dead :)

Hi everyone!

So after a two-year hiatus I’ve thought long and hard and I decided to come back. I’ve checked the blog stats and I’m surprised so many of you actually stuck around, thanks for that!

A little update.
Life has been HECTIC, with capital letters. Changed jobs twice and finally found one that makes me happy. I went from e-learning designer to recruiter to… primary school teacher! Being a teacher is like a dream come true and for the next two years I will be studying to finally earn my teaching qualification.
Also, last time you heard of me I was engaged. All good news: Rick and I got married on May 25, 2018!

Having had a full-time job left little time to update the blog, and I have to admit there came a point at which I wasn’t even trying anymore. I just gave up, thinking it belonged to the time I was 18 years old and had plenty of time on my hands. Even though the next two years will probably be tough, a girl needs a hobby. Other than watching re-runs of Sex and the City I mean. I’d been thinking about it for a while and since I now have a five week vacation, I thought this would be the perfect time to announce my return. And even though I may have lost a great number of visitors over the past two years, I hope my activity brings a lot of you back. If it doesn’t, I’ll still have an amazing hobby that keeps me entertained until people take notice again. I’m a patient woman 😉

I have a LOT of catching up to do when it comes to music, so I know how I’m going to spend my time the next few weeks!

Much love,
Jolanda

Hi everyone!

It’s been quite a while, but I have decided to come back to MA to catch up on some releases of the past few months. I’ve been absent since the end of July because I went on vacation for three weeks and school started right after that, and since I started my Masters education you can imagine I don’t have that much time to myself.

Also, my apologies for not updating for the 5th anniversary, I was in the USA at that time and I completely forgot to prepare something in advance! I was not really planning on anything special, but maybe I can make it up to you guys by making the holiday season a bit more special 😉

As always, I cannot promise to post frequently. Starting today, I do have a week off from my studies, but who knows what I want to do during that week off, there are so many things I haven’t done in quite a while. But the intention is there! Bear with me and enjoy what’s coming up! 🙂

Love,

Jade

Finally: Like me on Facebook!

21st birthday yesterday!

July 3, 2015 at 7:01 PM | Posted in !Random! | 4 Comments

Yay, yesterday was my 21st birthday! I remember posting that first birthday post online at age 17, when MA was almost one year old. How time flies! Oh, and this is also my 500th post!!

So I’m done with school for now, after summer vacation I’ll only have one year of Master specialization and I’ll be done forever! I don’t have that much time to do nothing though. On Sunday I’ll be going to Prague with my boyfriend, after that it’s two weeks of working full time as a summer school teacher and I’ll have a little over a week off from everything in the last week of July. Then in August, it’s off to the USA again!

It’s hard for me to find time to really sit down and write a post, but I’ll keep on trying since there are still some things on my to-do list. So don’t lose hope, my dear music addicts. I will try my best!

Take care everyone and enjoy the summer !! (I’ll be suffering here, heat wave and 95 degrees…)

Closing up 2014!

December 31, 2014 at 12:12 PM | Posted in !Random! | 4 Comments

Dear Music Addicts ❤

It’s December 31, so that means another year has come to an end! What a year has this been; I remember how much 2013 gave me in terms of satisfaction, discovery and happiness and 2014 was ehm.. interesting. For a long time I thought I was happy, but when I look back at everything I realize I wasn’t in a good place at all and I’m actually glad that’s all behind me. I’ve been tested a lot, more than ever before, and I feel very lucky to have learned from everything and I feel very strongly that I know better now. Lately, probably for the last two weeks or so, everything started to fall back together and there are definitely some new experiences coming up that I’m about to enjoy. I’m totally ready for 2015!

As for MA, this is the fifth time already that I can thank you guys for all your love and support. I never thought I would make some friends here and over the years some of you have been a very good source of support and feedback. Please keep it up, I love it! Also, a lot more people started to follow MA this year, thank you for wanting to keep up with everything! Special thanks this year go out to all of you who are new followers, those who keep coming back after all this time, those who were still involved when I was on a short break and my new friends SHINee_Girl and Cybuster_God_of_Wind, you guys are great!

2015: are you ready for MA’s BIG FIFTH BIRTHDAY BASH? 😀

This blog is like my baby and I will continue to cherish it and work on it whenever I can, let’s kick it in the new year!! Happy 2015, enjoy the festivities and fireworks and take care of yourselves and your loved ones!

Much love ❤
Jade

~20th birthday~

July 2, 2014 at 11:57 AM | Posted in !Random! | 4 Comments

It’s July 2, which means it’s my birthday! I turned 20 today, so bye-bye teens and hello twenties! 🙂

I also wanted to take a little moment to assure you guys my absence took a little longer than I expected. I had some health issues the past few weeks but I’m all better now. I’m going to ace my last exam this Friday (which is also my boyfriend’s birthday), and after that I’ll be spending more time catching up with some releases (like Ayu’s new album for example!). I’ll have time for that until July 17, when I’ll be heading to the USA again for a couple weeks. So stick around!

Take care,
Jade

Back soon

Hey guys,

I know I’ve been gone for quite some time now, but I really hope you don’t think I abandoned MA or anything. It’s just that I haven’t had the time for, well, anything these past few months. School was really giving me a hard time lately and all I did was studying. Even taking time to read a book was almost impossible. But now I have one week off, I’ll be spending a week in Italy (leaving tomorrow). As soon as I come back I’ll have some time to catch up on some music again, so please stay tuned and don’t leave. I’ll be back in no time ^^  For those who have kept on visiting, thank you so much and I love you guys!

Ciao and take care!
Love, Jade

Last post of 2013 !! ~

December 31, 2013 at 4:32 PM | Posted in !Random! | Leave a comment

First of all, I hope you all had a very nice Christmas!

Another year has come to an end, and boy what a year. To me, 2013 meant a lot of things, but most of all it meant positivity, discovery and happiness. I think I’ll remember this year as one of the best, despite some minor setbacks a couple of months ago but I have learned so much from them. My family and friends were amazing company and support, so I thank them for standing by me!

As for Music Addiction, I still feel lucky every single day that I can do this. Here, I do something I love, and to have you guys supporting me for another year has been amazing. In 2013, Music Addiction had 18,000 views again! It’s about as much as last year, but hey, you still broke the record of daily views with 213 on April 2nd! Imagine this: the concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. If this blog were a concert, you would need 7 sold-out performances for everyone to see it! How cool is that?!

Like I said multiple times, you can count on me in 2014! I’m not planning on giving this up any time soon, so I hope I’ll see you again in the new year. Please take care and enjoy New Year’s Eve (or Night, for some of you on the far eastern hemisphere). Much love!

~ Jade

3rd birthday!

Thank you guys so much for supporting me for the past three years!!

I still love editing this blog and I’m not planning on quitting any time soon, so let’s move on to the next anniversary. At the moment I’m still in Anaheim (I prepared this in advance), but tomorrow I’ll be heading home and I’ll be back here shortly! For now I’d like to thank you all, and a special thanks to my affiliates and followers. You guys are amazing ♥♥

Take care!

~ Jade
