Editing programs hate me (+ inspirational playlist)


Oh Hi!

So I was supposed to have a vlog up this week from the Bribry and Candice meetup in Helsinki. Since I have a PC I don't have an editing program (windows movie maker yes, but my camera saves the videos in a form that windows movie maker doesn't accept which means I would have to download something to change them to another form and then edit them all together) so I downloaded this free "easy video maker" program which was easy to use and stuff. Until I had edited about half the video and I went to save what I had done so far, aka I wanted to RENDER it so it wouldn't disappear and this program tells me that with the free version you can't make a video that is longer than 5 minutes. I think I'm going to cry.
So now, there's not going to be a vlog up unless I find a good FREE editing program that allows me to make videos longer than 5 minutes. So, I ask you to please let me know if you know any good editing programs that don't ruin your life or cost money since I'm poor.

Instead, I'm going to leave you with a playlist I've been building up, of videos that inspire me one way or another. So watch some videos to have inspiration for the following week since you'll need it (I mean the clocks went forward one hour, you don't get to sleep as much!!)



And maybe I'll have something up next week, we'll see what the world decides to give me.

If you watch one video today...

... Then it should be this.


Hope For Paws does the most amazing work and when I have money I will donate to them every month. While I still can't donate, I can share these videos of Eldad Hagar rescuing these poor dogs, in hope that someone who is able to adopt a dog sees the videos. So I ask you now, please watch this video and share it and if you can make a donation, please do. I mean look at that poor dog, if people didn't donate Jordan wouldn't be able to have had surgery. So please, if you can, please donate: http://www.hopeforpaws.org/donationrecurring

I want so much

Oh hi!

First of all, I'm writing this on my phone so it'll look different.*
Second of all, I wrote this post already once and then I just went to get my "xoxo Maddie" sign I put in every blogpost and the post was gone. I am pissed.
Third, I don't know what I said in that post. So now this post won't be as good. I'm cursing inside.

So, if you've read my blog for a while you know that I've never been gone for this long. I'm stuck in the worst writer's block I've ever had. I can't even write essays for school. 

I want so much. I want to inspire and I want to change the world. And I'm stuck in this small town in Finland not doing ANYTHING. I don't have any ideas, or then I have ideas and I don't feel like writing. I'm stuck.

My question is: is anyone listening? Or am I writing to a black hole? I see the numbers. "20 people have visited this blog today" but I don't see it. I don't get any comments and I feel like I'm writing into a big black hole. My blogposts just disappear into the world of blogposts. Nothing important here. And I want so much, I want to change the world. And I can't. Because I'm stuck.

I write for myself, but I also write for you. I write to maybe change your view or to make you feel like you're not alone. But then I feel so alone. I feel so empty. 
You see, I actually want to make money out of writing. I love writing, I want to one day write a book or many books. I want to do the things I love, and I wish to make money from that. As horrible as that might sound, I don't want to have 7am-4pm workdays. I want to be my own boss. I want to write for the world and change the world. And I'm stuck. Is anyone listening?

I guess I'm having a crisis. What do I do when I want so much? I don't know where to start. I want to write about important things like feminism, depression and war. I want to write about beauty and fashion. And right now, I'm not doing any of that.

So my question to the few people who read my blog is: what do you enjoy reading about? What do you want me to write about? What are your favorite posts of mine?
Please answer those questions, because again; I am stuck.
(I can however enlighten you and tell you that I'll have a vlog coming your way sometime this week as I met two of my favorite youtubers!)

IPhone Life | 23rd February - 1st March

Oh Hi!

If you're new to my blog you might be asking me "what is IPhone life?". Well, I take a lot of pictures every single week and most of them never really go anywhere, so IPhone life is when I share some of those pictures with you!
I've already done two of these, one in april and one in August last year. So it's about time I do another one!


I don't remember what day I took this, but I built a snowman. "DO YOU WANNA BUILD A SNOWMAN?!" I sung to myself. Yes, yes I do.


I scrolled my way through tumblr the other day and this made me laugh, so I took a picture and sent it to Jade. Ah, what a life I lead.


I was really bored one night, I think it was wednesday, so I did the only thing I could think of; makeup. And then I posed, of course.


I went shopping to Vaasa with my bestie Betti on thursday and I did a funny face and Betti insisted she took a picture. Oh God.


Posey poseyyyy. I bought the grey top and the high waisted pants in Vaasa! This was my outfit for going to dinner with my family since my brother turned 20 this week!





Just... You know... Taking some selfies...


FOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD. If you ever go eat at Rosso (which I think is a finnish restaurant chain, whatever it's called) this is the thing to order. But I don't remember the name. Sigh.


Yesterday (saturday) I went to see Heidi and Ida since we hadn't hung out in a while. And we kind of just ended up having a sleepover. (Heidi took this picture since I didn't bring my phone down when we went to grab some food)



This is the essentials for a sleepover. I had a wonderful time and we watched "Now you see me" which is a wonderful movie!





When I got home from Heidi and Ida's today I took a shower and had a facemask, and that's obviously the perfect selfie time (and to make weird faces)...

That's all for this time! What have you been up to this week?♥
