Introduction Hey!My name is Sacha Slootheer. I was born on August 18 in Holland. I am 14 years old.
Introduction In the past I never really participated in any trends because, well, I basically didn’t care. I started caring more for popular music probably some time after I got myiPod, which was about 3 years ago.
Music Music that I have listened to the past has probably influenced the way I acted around others although I can’t really remember that. Some ways music has influenced me is by giving me something to listen to whenever I was bored and maybe a topic to talk about with friends.
Music I liked in the past In the past I had a very different taste in music than I do now. I mainly liked very childish songs and groups that were mainly for kids.
Music I liked in the past One group I was completely obsessed with between the age of 5 and 10 was K3. K3 is a Belgian group that is also popular in Holland that generally has younger childern as fans. I now think their songs are nothing but annoying.I think I liked this group back then because they sang “happy” songs and about things little kids like.
Music I liked in the Past Vengaboys is another group I was a fan of. Vengaboys is a Dutch group whose music is classified as Dance. I used to like their songs because they were very up-beat and were fun to listen to.
Music I liked in the past Another group I enjoyed listening to in the past is Toy Box. Toy Box is a pop group from Denmark. I was introduced to them by my cousin who once gave me a CD from Toy Box. I occasionally listen to Toy Box nowadays. I like this group now because I think the lyrics to their songs are very funny and don’t really makeany sense.
Music I liked in the past Another group, similar to K3 that I used to listen to was M-Kids. They are also a Belgian group that I don’t like to listen to anymore. I don’t really remember when I stopped listening to thisgroup, but their songs were also songs that were about childish things.
Music I Like Now Music is influencing me daily in everything that I do. The things I talk about with friends and songs I think are good enough to put on my iPod are things affected by music that is popular at the time. In return the way I live my life is affected.
Music I like Now One artist I recently became a fan of is Justin Bieber. He is a Canadian pop singer who was recently discovered by Usher. I like his hit songs “One Time” because I like the lyrics and it is nice to listen to.
Music I like Now I also like listening to Enrique Iglesias; some of my favorite songs are “Hero”, ”Escape”, and “Can You Hear Me”.
Music I like Now I am a very big fan of Lady Gaga. She has many hit songs that I enjoy listening to. I also like her because she doesn’t really care about what other people think of her and has very outrageous video clips that go along with her songs.
Music I like Now I lately also started liking some of Britney Spear’s new songs like “3” and “Circus”. Mainly all the songs she made after she got her act back together.
Music I Like Now I don’t really have a favorite artist or band, but there are artist I enjoy listening to. Some are: Lily Allen, Green Day, Taylor Swift, 30H!3, David Guetta, Basshunter, and Black Eyed Peas. One Dutch singer I like is EsmeeDenters.
Fashion There is no doubt that fashion trends affect my life. The amount of time I spend shopping for clothing, the time spent in the morning picking an outfit, and the comfort level of the clothes I wear are things definitely affected.
Fashion Styles When I was younger I never really had the opportunity to participate in any fashion trends. Mainlybecause en I was really young my mother dressed me, so I didn’t really have much to say.
Fashion Styles When I was older, I didn’t get the chance to participate in any styles because all my schools had a uniform. It wasn’t until I came here that I could finally wear normal clothes to school.
Fashion I Wear Now I like to wear comfortable clothes that are stylish at the same time. For example a colorful t-shirt and some jeans with holes, or something like that. I think this is basically what most people at ISB wear too.
Jewelry I am a BIG fan of jewelry!! I love earrings the most! I sometimes wear necklaces but usually earrings. I think I like jewelry so much because there are so many choices, and I LOVE things that sparkle!
TV Shows TV Shows on the other hand, affect my life in a different way. They give me an image of how people live there live and if I wished, I could aspire to that lifestyle. It shows that people are different and teaches me to accept that in everyday life, making me more tolerant towards others. Movies tend to do the same, just in a shortened version.
TV Shows I Watched in the Past When I was younger I watched cartoons on channels like Cartoon Network and Nickelodeon.
Ancient TV Shows I Liked Two shows I remember watching a LOT were Powerpuff Girls and Totally Spies. I think I liked them because they were “exiting”.
TV Shows I Watched in the Past When I was a little older I watched shows that were funny and more realistic, not a lot of cartoons any more. I watched shows on channels like Sony and Warner Bros.
A Little Less Ancient Some shows I watched on those channels were The O.C, Grey’sAnatomy, and CSI.
TV Shows I Watch Now I enjoy watching TV everyday so I have a lot of favorite TV shows. I still enjoy any funny show because they are my favorite genre. These shows all influence me by showing me what life can be like for people.
TV Shows One show I watch every day is called Samantha Who? Which has some really funny parts in it.
TV Shows I Watch Now I also watch some more serious shows like House and Castle which both also make me laugh a lot.
Movies One of my favorite movies is Transformers. I like it so much because it think it is a fantastic movie with terrific acting. I’m not so sure that the movie influenced me, but it was worthwhile seeing.
Movies Another one of my favorite movies is Garfield 2: A Tail of Two Kitties. I LOVE that movie because I think it’s hilarious with the two version of Garfield, especially Prince. Again, I’m not sure how the movie really influences me, but I know I really like it.
