>> BEST OF 2017 <<

Here comes the time to close a notebook. Its pages are filled with words, but most importantly, with experiences, thoughts and feelings. I had a lot to learn from this year.

The year of 2017 was one of growth, development and change for me. It was, indeed, the year of coming of age for me. I went through both positive and negative situations that helped me become the person that I am today.

However, we should learn from our mistakes and cherish the wonderful moments in our lives.

This is my “best of 2017”:

  • I got a new phone.
  • I published some poems in a local newspaper.
  • I took part in an essay contest and even though I did not win a prize, I won experience.
  • I celebrated with friends.
  • I ate fortune cookies for the first time. (wonderful)
  • I managed to read 27 books.
  • I started watching Stranger Things.
  • I passed my CAE exam.

Now, it is time to open a new notebook and document the rollercoaster of my life throughout the following year.

I am grateful for 2017 and I am excited to see how 2018 will be!

I wish you all, dear readers, a powerful, exciting and wonderful 2018! But don’t forget… in order for it to be like that, you must take action!

Happy New Year!

It’s just a crush!

Ah, you see… I have this problem.

Whenever I have a new crush, I cannot concentrate. On anything. For days.

It’s frustrating.

Infuriating.

I’m not in the right state of mind.

I’m lustful.

But you won’t catch me telling that person how I feel.

I conceal.

And I torture myself because why the fuck not.

I’m sorry. Having a crush makes me do and say things I shouldn’t.

▪ december is such an exciting month!

▪ but, i’m not gonna lie, i hate the cold… and during december, i am always cold

▪ december sunrises are the best

▪ i’m glad i had the chance to see two amazing films

▪ to be completely honest… i watched American Psycho just for Christian Bale – let’s be real for a minute, young CB is a total babe – but his performance was brilliant

▪ Midnight in Paris is the perfect film for a lazy afternoon when all you want to do is chill inside the house; the aesthetic of the film was quite wonderful! i think it’s worth a watch

▪ i haven’t been reading as much as i would have wanted to, but hopefully i’ll make up for it in the following weeks

▪ i’ve been listening to Imagine Dragons a hell lot

Movie Recommendation – 3 Films You Should Definitely Watch

I love films. I love ignoring all the school work I must do, just to watch a movie. To me, it’s a form of escapism. It makes me forget about my boring and stressful life for a while.

Lately, I’ve been watching a lot of movies. I thought it would be a great idea to share with you 3 of the films I enjoyed most.

a. The Nightmare Before Christmas

I never understood why everyone was praising this film… until the day I decided to decide for myself. I was amazed by how wonderful it was. One of the best I have ever seen. It’s a stop-motion movie and the plot is based on Tim Burton’s poem with the same name. I was surprised when I found out that Tim Burton didn’t actually direct this movie, but Henry Selick. Nonetheless, it’s a masterpiece.

b. The Pianist 

I started watching this in my History class (for it deals with the Holocaust), but we weren’t able to finish it. I swear to God, I couldn’t focus the rest of the day at school, because I absolutely needed to know what happens with the main character (portrayed so wonderfully by Adrien Brody). As soon as I got home, I looked for the movie online and finished watching it. I cried my eyes out. I think this film is in my Top 3 Movies I have ever seen in my life.

c. Lion

Yet another movie which made me cry rivers. I honestly wanted to watch this one because of Dev Patel. I did not expect it to be so interesting and exciting. I heard it won a lot of awards, but the plot seemed to be a little bit to simplistic for my liking. I am glad I was wrong and I gave it a chance. Everything about this movie is beautiful.

It’s OK If You Don’t Know What You Want To Do With Your Life!

I’m one of those people. Those people who have no idea what they want to be “when they grow up”. I’ve always been like that. And guess what… so far, everything’s been alright.

I mean, sure, there is stress. Lots of it. You might be feeling worthless from time to time. Or useless, especially when all your friends have their future planned out.

But what I’m telling you is to relax. Take a deep breath and go with the flow. Because that’s what people like us should do. GO WITH THE FLOW.

We’re forever changing. We’re forever growing and developing. What you enjoy doing today, might make you feel disgusted in a few weeks’ time.

Everything is temporary and so is this state of being confused and not knowing what to do in the future. The future is unpredictable.

I am sure each and every one of us will discover something which they thoroughly love to do and we will fructify the opportunities that are to come. Life is full of opportunities.

Work hard, even if  you haven’t decided what you’d like to pursue. Great results can be achieved only through hard work. Do a multitude of things. Even if they are out of your comfort zone. You never know when you’ll come across something which you find joy in.

And never forget… you don’t have to be a doctor or a lawyer or an IT expert to be successful. Do what you love! Love what you do! In this way, you’ll be happy and success will come your way!

Keep  fighting!

i am extremely disappointed

i just found out that Selena Gomez and The Weeknd broke up

not gonna lie, when i first heard they were an item i thought it was an odd pairing, but with time i learned to absolutely love them together

they were my favourite couple… and i am really sad they broke up 😢 i don’t think i ever felt like this with any other celeb couple

but, i mean… look how gorgeous they were together

anyways, the last couple of weeks were very hectic and i barely had some time to breathe

but, me being me, of course i had to squeeze some breaks in my schedule to watch a movie… or two

a classic, absolutely loved it

i’ve actually finished watching the whole Resident Evil series

despite all the hate this films get, i really enjoyed each movie, especially Apocalypse and The Final Chapter

these are my plants, it’s been two years since i’ve got them and i wanted to celebrate this

so, happy birthday to my babies! ❤
