As I’m stuck inside studying for my finals (ahem, procrastinating), while drifting away from the ever exhilarating economy ended up imagining the perfect Sunday. It would be just warm enough to feel cozy in a sweater, laying under blooming trees with Murakami’s The wind up bird chronicle with a basket filled with delicious sushi for when hunger strikes. I find it wonderful how easy being alone without feeling lonely is when you’ve got a good book beside you. What would your perfect Sunday look like?
As I was thinking (procrastinating) today, I was trying to understand hate. I honestly don’t. I’m not going to go all white knight and pretend I love everyone and everything because hell I don’t! There are people that drive me mad only by opening their mouth, but that doesn’t mean I’ve ever wished something bad happened to them or hurt them deliberately, it’s such a childish thing to do. When you dislike someone I find the best thing to do is avoid them. At all costs. It’s so much better than filling your head with negative thoughts that at one point start consuming you. Also trying to understand that person or find something that you like about them helps, but it’s a little harder and to be honest it hasn’t worked too many times for me.
Now that I think about it, I don’t see the point of negativity at all, being it aimed at yourself or others. It would be so much easier for everyone if there would be less fake smiles and hatred and rivalry but the world we live in is, sadly, way beyond ridding itself of those.
I’ve got a lot on my mind right now and sadly can’t write up a proper post. Thoughts are mingling in my head, I’m anxious and happy and stressed out and tired all in the same time, it’s safe to say my mind’s a mess. I promise I’ll wrap up something good soon, after I finish with my finals! Are you stressed out by school too? Continue reading
I had such a lovely day today, even though I’ve been on the run and still am, barely had 15 minutes to edit the photos and write something up. It’s been so sunny and the air was filled with the scent of blooming chestnuts. A gush of wind and it was raining tiny white and pink petals. Too bad most of them are so tall, I’d love to be able to climb in one and read or just laze around in the shadow, surrounded by all the pretty flowers…
People have been so nice today, too (well, most of them, the amount of dumb comments, obscene yelling and whistles when I ride my bike is infinite). At school when I was in the bathroom, doing my lipstick, a little girl came to wash her hands, then she stopped, stared at me in awe and said “Woow, you are so beautiful”. I melted. Then a cashier told me I look like snow white and I burst out giggling like an idiot. Compliments from strangers are real day brightners.
I’ve never been a big fan of religious holidays because we always got invaded by all kind of guests or we had to visit them and yaddla yaddla. I always felt awkward during those social gatherings (still do), but since my parents divorced we usually spend them only with the family so it’s a lot more intimate and there’s no “I have to make a good impression and not embarrass my parents” pressure, which is good. My family already knows what a crazy spazz I am so…
In September I felt like an eternity of never ending torture and boredom begun because of the school start and now I can’t believe there’s only one more month left (June doesn’t count). As the cliche goes, time flies. I’m shaking with excitement as I’m thinking about what this summer has in store. Do you have plans for this summer?
My face is melting off as you’re reading this, scratch that, my whole skin is crawling off my bones from the heat. I actually had to move in the bathtub while editing the photos because of the heat. Here’s a little colder, but still.
The shirt I’m wearing is the second one I’ve received from the lovely Choies. As I said in my previous post (about them) they’ve been super friendly and professional, my package came in almost less than 24 hours from receiving my shipping confirmation. The fabric is sheer and soft, perfect for hot summer days even though it’s long sleeved. I can’t wait to combine it with a really colorful skirt, you can play around so much with contrasts with this one Do check it out here.
Hello my dears! I was feeling creative and housewifey this morning and since Easter’s right around the corner, I thought, why not put it to good use? Therefore I present you my take on the classical carrot cake!
I’ve been incredibly moody all day and I’ve got no clue why. I’m finally on my second pseudo spring break and that should make me happy, instead it made me pissed-offy and restless and nothing I did made me feel better. I cleaned up my laptop, which ended in me deleting permanently pictures I still damn needed and as you can imagine that made me slump even lower than before. I ended up eating some dark chocolate and cursing at the heat when it started melting all over my hands. This sudden heat wave (obviously) made me thing of summer, last summer to be precise. And so I decided to look at the photos I took in Crete and remembered I’ve been a lazyass slacker all last summer and didn’t blog about any of it.
The hotel we stood in was a total beauty, it wasn’t a big chunky building as most are, it was made out of tiny little houses spread all over the resort. We were (obviously) given rooms in the furthest one, but I didn’t really mind, walking around the resort was exhilarating. I’ll leave you enjoy the Cretan beauty now, for little mean comments keep popping up regarding everything in my hear right now due to my difficult mood and I wouldn’t want to spoil any of it.
Saturdays always put me in a lazy mood, the kind that when it strikes, all I want to do is think, listen to music and read. Nothing more adventurous or calorie consuming. Most of the times I end up strolling on memory lane. This morning while I was cleaning my laptop a bit since it was running low on space (again), I stumbled upon a batch of pictures from Rome that I haven’t shared with you.
I fell in love with Rome, it made me feel almost as princessy as Paris did. The thing I miss the most abut it, though, is the company. I miss spending whole days with mom and her alone, not being bothered by work or school or any worry in the world except the soreness of our feet caused by too much walking.
For every kiss you give me, I’ll give you three
I’ve always been a spring kid. The warm winds, the subtle flower scent that lingers in the air, the gentle sun rays what are just warm enough to keep you from being cold. In spring I also get hopelessly romantic, looking for new people, things or places to fall in love with. It’s a fun game. This year’s spring really made us crave for it, but when it came, surprise surprise, it’s summer.
I’ve always had a thing for embarrassing myself, for as long as I can remember. Now that it’s finally warmer and sunnier there are more and more people on the streets, so much so that I’m considering going with my bike on the street instead of the pedestrian walks due to the non-existent bike lanes in my city, but I’m saving that rant for sometime else. My point is that the more people are around to see me fuck up, the more plain humiliating my fuck up gets. Yesterday, when I wore this outfit, was a brilliant, sunny day, the type of day in which everyone goes out for walks. I was out myself, to meet with a friend and have a stroll in the local Botanical Garden and I was in a hurry when I noticed two gorgeous guys approaching. They were both staring at me (everybody was, I guess the bow was a little too much) and as they passed me by, they smiled. I smiled back, cockily even. Then I slipped, I twisted my ankle and threw myself against the building on my left so as not to fall on my hands and knees before the guys. In that moment I just closed my eyes waited for them to pass me so I could lay down on the ground and wait for it to swallow it together with my shame. My cheeks are burning from embarrassment as I’m typing and I wish I could hide under the blanked and avoid coming out for a while.
Ok, I might be exaggerating a little bit, I mean, there are way worse stuff happening in this world, I know, I know, but I feel terrible about it. Hopefully my fuck up will make you feel better about anything embarrassing you’ve been through today
