Late Night Post.-

Hello world.

It’s 1:24 AM.

I am not sleeping and I am not sure what will happen when I do.

But let’s not linger on my personal life.

“The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian”

by Sherman Alexie

First of all, a big thank you to my American teacher for lending it to me.

It was a really funny read. No, it’s not trivial. I’s actually a good book. It won the National Book Award in the United States.

This is not a review, I should say, because my attempt at writing right now is obviously a failure, all the words I say in my head sound like incoherent Gibberish.

I liked Arnold/Junior’s story (yes, I’m talking about the book now), and what I liked the most is that he could see a good part in everything. Even in his best friend Rowdy who hated him, punched him in the face and gave him a concussion. And I loved that he had the courage to go on adventures. He had the courage to climb 50 feet trees and punch a huge dude in the face and study in a school for white kids (he’s an Indian, racism is pretty strong around reservations, from what I’ve read.) And he had the courage to go out with the most popular girl in school! This takes courage, you should see those kids, they are vicious!

And the most impressive of all, he had the courage not to give up when he was down, he swallowed his weakness and stood up and kept fighting until he finally won.

That’s a lesson we should all learn.

By the way, this is my Spring. She says hi. 🙂

That’s it. I should go before I say anything stupid. The level of confusion now exceeds its normal limits, which, in my case, are pretty wide, so, I should go to sleep. See what’s gonna happen tomorrow.

Just for the sake of it, and because I make people confused:

Mood: excited and nervous

Listening to: Ducu Bertzi- Suflet fara chei

Song that is actually playing in my mind: something of  French origins.

Okay, I’m out. Au revoir folks! See you demain!

Be a Sublime Fool

There is this site: advicetowriters.com and it’s full of wonderful and useful comments on writing. I found this one the other day and couldn’t help not post it. It’s too beautiful.

To sum it all up, if you want to write, if you want to create, you must be the most sublime fool that God ever turned out and sent rambling.

You must write every single day of your life.

You must read dreadful dumb books and glorious books, and let them wrestle in beautiful fights inside your head, vulgar one moment, brilliant the next.

You must lurk in libraries and climb the stacks like ladders to sniff books like perfumes and wear books like hats upon your crazy heads.

I wish for you a wrestling match with your Creative Muse that will last a lifetime.

I wish craziness and foolishness and madness upon you.

May you live with hysteria, and out of it make fine stories—science fiction or otherwise.

Which finally means, may you be in love every day for the next 20,000 days. And out of that love, remake a world.

RAY BRADBURY

 

I love literature, what can I say… and I hope I can be the sublime fool my novel needs.

Keep your fingers crossed for my November. I’m participating in NaNoWriMo.

On that, more information here.

And it would also mean a lot to me if you checked this other page of mine. Because I paint t-shirts and bags and all kinds of stuff and if you’d like one, just leave me a comment. –> The Beautiful Ones Productions

3rd of October

  So let’s pretend this is how today looked like.

Because, you know, it totally didn’t, but it’s nice to imagine it did.

Today my second year of college started, right here in my hometown-which sucks. So what a better thing to do today but try to look excited and in the end to really be excited.

How did it start?

I met up with my friends and headed up to school. Only I didn’t have time to think of what would happen when I’d get there, because half the way I had to act as a relationship counselor. I tend to do that in my spare time…

Then I met the crowd that gathered at the entrance. The beginning of the year is the only time you see that many students in the school yard. My eyes shifted and looked for familiar faces, new faces, interesting, cute, handsome.. umm.. familiar faces.

So what happened next? We find out we have two exchange students! It was about time! Hello Turk guy from Turkey and hello blond guy from France! We called dibs on the ones we liked.

Once the solemn opening ceremony ended (cool, didn’t know we had an anthem!) we headed for the mall- because really, what a better thing to do before school starts for real?

We tried on clothes we cannot afford/ would never wear in the real world.

Here’ s the proof:

 

Then we went home like the old ladies we are (our feet and backs hurt from all the walking and the dressing-undressing game).

And that’s my day.

How was yours? Any first days of anything?

On the more-like-me part, I am bipolar. Someone said it to me today and for sure I am!  I’m sure all people are, to an extent. I was bummed out to have to go to school today, because I love vacation. It’s warm and summer and the rains are violent and noisy. And I don’t have homework due three days ago.

But then I see all those freshmen and their shy laughs and my too-happy classmates, and those foreign guys and the teachers who all smile ( why do the teachers smile? wasn’t it better without the lousy students?) and the excitement gets to me.

It is strange how fast all that can disappear, and I hear myself saying :

“I’m scared”.

Because college is harder than I expected. Because I should have prepared for this year and I didn’t. Because there are a lot of new people, and a lot of people I already know and they expect me to rise and shine brighter than the year before.

Why? Why do people have expectations? (Great expectations, yes, I should have read that this summer as well).

Isn’t it easier to just let life flow as it wishes? Sure, you have dreams, you believe that stuff might or might not happen. But people? They have their own rhythm,  they might race into the battle without flinching at first, and then get scared and get defeated. Would you expect them to be your heroes?

Or is it better to place your bets on the person most likely to succeed when another one comes slow and steady from behind and wins the game?

People get scared of many things. For me it’s just the unknown. New people, the ones I have no idea what they hide, or what they might put on for the show, they freak me out.

So I guess my other option is to put on the mask, pretend I am who they want to be, and maybe that’s the way I get to be who I want to be.

And I’m also scared because someone once told me my future. And it’s about to happen.

Now I should get to sleep. Waking up at 6 AM is another downside of school.

Hope I’ll be alive and well tomorrow.

Ah, this begs for a James Blunt song.

***

Almost forgot, check out my other page at The Beautiful Ones Productions, because I pain t-shirts and bags and stuff, and if you want one unique personalized piece of clothing and you like what I do, I’m here to hear your wishes!

Be good. Don’t do anything too crazy or too boring.

At the Start of Whatever, Shouting Love at the World

Oh and this is a good day for science.

Because, you know, I wanted to draw, and then I couldn’t, and then I tricked the whole drawing process, and now it’s halfway through awesome. Well, maybe not halfway, but close. I’ll give you details another time.

And it’s a good day because, guess what, I received that book that I won 😀

In case you don’t remember, Heather Zundel held this Epic Contest of Awesomeness on her blog. And you awesome people followed her and I won a book. And what a book!! I won Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare. Here is a picture with me going crazy:

Thank you guys, you are all awesome! The best!

The other thing I wanted to say is about another book. Yes, I am aware that I am turning into a geek but I don’t care. At all. I mean, look at this pretty thing! And look! I am not alone in fangirling this time! Say hello to Ancuta, also known as Balonas! Welcome!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Yes, those on top of her head are my glasses. ❤

In case you don’t know, that is Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins. Incredibly great book. Hot boy, great name, chocolat chaud and Paris are all included. If you haven’t read it, do so. Now!

Also, yesterday I went to a Piano concert. So, so beautiful! Here’s the poster.

 

Yes, so now I’m going back to drawing, and soon I shall go and write some stuff, because I’m behind.

Have a good day everyone!

I Am Number Four

So this is a movie review.

Fact: I go to movies for the actors. Actually, me and my friend do.

So, yes, I went to I Am Number Four for Alex Pettyfer.

And enjoyed every single second of it.

It’s about nine aliens who escaped a planet and came to live on earth. But then the bad guys want to kill them all (by the way, these bad guys are the definition of scary. believe me) and they kill them in order. After the first three were killed, our guy is next.

It was interesting at the beginning, then his leg was shining. Then thinks were a bit weird. Then they began running, and fighting, and there was a hot chick who made him look like a pussy who can’t fight. That was awesome 😛

Ah and my favorite part is at this fair.

Advice: if you absolutely hate horror movies but nevertheless want to see the movie, sit in the back, because it’s so, so scary.

Also, the actors play pretty good, I have not seen many flaws or mistakes in their acting. And the effects are good in quality, and for those who did not read the book, there are interesting turns and twists in the plot.

I usually see the movie first, then read the book, then see the movie again. So I can have the characters in my mind, and not to be disappointed by the movie the first time. The second time I watch it to get a critical approach.

I won’t give it any stars, because out of enthusiasm I’ll give it too many. There are chances I’ll go and see it again soon, and then I’ll know better.

Now go see the movie! It rocks! Choose 7th row.

Doesn’t want grammar exam

This is me wasting time..

I actually am listening to this beautiful violin music. So, yeah..

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about my novel and about the time I don’t have to write it.

And I’ve made new friends.

And I studied hard.

And that is what I should be doing now as well.

But I don;t want to..

Gah, the grammar exam tomorrow will be so hard. I hope I’ll get a high mark.

I’ll go now. See you 😀
