[COLUMN/KOLUMNA] Mind the Gap by Sara Al Hamad: Goodbye!/Zbogom!

ENG

Goodbye!

2018 began with two decisions – I will stop apologising for being me and I will confront each and every problem head on while pursuing my dreams. Today, on New Year’s Eve, I am proud to say I did not fail myself this time. I lived up to my expectations and finally have the life I always wanted. It’s not perfect, there are ups and downs, but nothing ever is. It gets tough and lonely, but if you keep your focus on the dream, you really can persevere anything.

2019 will be all about taking things to the next level and that is why I decided to make this my last column. As much as I enjoyed writing it for the last couple of months, I now need to direct my attention elsewhere and build a community which all of you can be a part of if you are interested in music industry. More information about that will come during January, for the time being, I just wanted to say a big THANK YOU for reading my column and supporting my work.

For the past 4 days, there were so many amazing parties, I don’t even know where to begin, so I will try to leave things short and sweet. I would like to start by introducing you with the wonderful and talented Mario Miše. He does amazing costumes for so many Hollywood movies, and just like me, he decided to leave Croatia to pursue his dream. His life philosophy is be yourself – so I guess we are on the same page there! Mario is most famous for designing the wings for Victoria’s Secret Angels. His other works include costumes for Hunger Games, Pirates of the Caribbean and many theatrical performances. Besides being very talented, he is also very nice and down to earth guy, and it was such a pleasure getting to know him.

The event where we met was Berlin Berlin, held in one of London’s favorite venues – Egg club! The night was all about monster queens, drags and seriously good techno music. I haven’t seen many drag performances in my life, but after this show I will definitely look into it a bit more. It’s very innovative and different, and I enjoyed it very much. I even managed to get one of the queens to take a photo with me while chatting in the backstage – meet the infamous Karma

During Saturday daytime, I was at the Tobacco Docks’ Junction 2 party, discovering my new favorite artist, Amelie Lens. To say she is good would be such an understatement. She is a techno phenomenon. Her music takes you places – I honestly don’t remember when someone made me dance that much. And, to top it all, she is so lovely and nice! If you have a chance, definitely go hear her set!

I have to go get ready for the New Year’s Eve party now, but before I go, I would like to wish you all a New Year full of good vibes and success. Party hard, work harder, love hardest! I leave you with the person whose music influenced my taste significantly, you probably all know him, but if you don’t you are definitely in for a treat – big love from yours truly!

Zbogom!

2018. godinu počinjem s dvije odluke – prestat ću se ispričavati zbog toga što sam svoja i suočit ću se sa svakim problemom dok sam u potrazi za snovima. Danas, na novogodišnju večer, ponosno mogu reći da nisam iznevjerila samu sebe ovoga puta. Ispunila sam svoja očekivanja i konačno imam život kojeg sam oduvijek htjela. Nije savršen, postoje usponi i padovi, ali uvijek je tako. Zna biti teško i usamljeno, ali ako se usredotočite na san zaista možete ustrajati na bilo čemu.

2019. godina će biti sva u znaku toga da se stvari podignu na višu razinu i zato sam odlučila kako će ovo biti moja posljednja kolumna. Koliko sam uživala pisajući zadnjih nekoliko mjeseci, sada moram usmjeriti svoju pozornost negdje drugdje i stvoriti zajednicu kojoj se svi možete pridružiti ako ste zainteresirani u glazbenu industriju. Više informacija o tome bit će poznato tijekom siječnja, a u međuvremenu vam želim reći VELIKO HVALA što ste čitali moju kolumnu i podržavali moj rad.

Posljednja četiri dana bilo je nevjerojatnih zabava i ne znam uopće odakle početi, tako da ću pokušati spomenuti sve i ne duljiti. Htjela bih početi s predstavljanjem sjajnog i talentiranog Marija Miše. Radi zaista nevjerojatne kostime za mnoge hollywoodske filmove i odlučio je kao i ja napustiti Hrvatsku u potrazi za svojim snovima. Njegova životna filozofija je biti svoj – stoga mislim da smo na istoj razini. Mario je najpoznatiji po dizajnu krila za Victoria’s Secret Angels. Njegovi ostali radovi uključuju kostime za „Igre gladi“, „Pirate s Kariba“ i mnoge druge teatralne izvedbe. Pored toga što je vrlo talentiran ujedno je i vrlo draga i ponizna osoba te je bilo pravo zadovoljstvo upoznati ga.

Upoznali smo se na događaju pod nazivom Berlin Berlin koji je održan u jednom od najpoznatiji londonskih klubova – Egg Club. Bila je ovo noć monster i drag kraljica te izuzetno dobre techno glazbe. Nisam u životu vidjela toliko drag performansa, ali nakon nastupa sigurno ću sve dodatno istražiti. Vrlo je inovativno i drugačije i dosta sam uživala u svemu. Čak sam uspjela upoznati jednu od drag kraljica i fotografirala se dok smo razgovarale u backstageu – upoznajte Karmu

Tijekom subote bila sam na Tobacco Docks’ Junction 2 partyju gdje sam otkrila novu najdražu glazbenicu, Amelie Lens. Kad  bih rekla da je dobra to bi bilo podcjenjivanje. Ona je techno fenomen. Njezina glazba odvodi vas na razna mjesta – iskreno se ne sjećam kad me netko natjerao da toliko plešem. I na kraju krajeva vrlo je ljubazna i draga osoba. Ako imate prilike definitivno poslušajte njezine setove.

Sad se moram pripremiti za novogodišnji party, ali prije nego što vas napustim htjela bih vam zaželjeti novu godinu ispunjenu dobrim vibracijama i uspjehom. Partyjajte još više, radite još više, volite najviše! Ostavljam vas uz osobu čija je glazba značajno utjecala na moj ukus, vjerojatno ga svi znate, ali ako kojim slučajem ne znate onda ćete sigurno uživati – šaljem vam puno iskrene ljubavi!
