Give blood and give life

Today I woke up really early and went to the hospital. What for?? To donate blood.
Since I turned eighteen (two years ago) I go every year to the hospital and donate blood voluntarily as a gesture and thanks to mother nature to let me live an other year of life. I mean, we laugh, we walk, we love, we listen to music, we do a lot of stuff and sometimes we don't realize what a hard work is to be alive, or the value of our existance, the value of our breathes, our hearts, our minds. So, every year, after my birthday I go to the hospital with my dad and we donate for someone else we don't know but who could really need us.
Also, every time I go to donate I faint very easily. BUT TODAY, people of the world, I didn't!!!! I did a lot of mental effort for not to look at the blood or even the needle, and at the same time I was thinking "I'm a Gryffindor, I am not weak, I'm a Gryffindor!"; and after that worked out pretty well, I started inventing a song that helped me calm down. The nurses looked at me weird :P but I was making myself together so I didn't care.
Walked out from the hospital really proud of myself for not fainting and thinking that maybe turning twenty gave me new super powers. Is it possible?? :D

What I've learnt today: I'm A+

See you soon, dears!

Autumn leaves

I adore Autumn. I love how everything radically changes in nature during this time of the year, how browns, reds, yellows and oranges come out from trees, grass, flowers and even the sky itself. Oh, the autumn sunsets are just the best in my opinion; so worm and peaceful... the perfect moment to read or draw outdoors, or just sit and listen to some of your favourite music.
Also, during autumn I feel happy and joyful almost every day. I like wearing woolen hats and scarves and gloves and coats. I feel like I also wear the trees that leave their leaves fall to the grass everywhere painting the ground, making an amazing collage, or that this cool new air brings me perfums from far away, from some cold and yellow land where irish lullabies sounds while the sun goes up and down in the horizon.

One of my birthday presents was a box with a painted Gryffindor crest (my friend painted it!!) and it contained a book: The Alchemyst by Scott Michael (which I already started reading!), and I had to decide what would I use the box for. I wanted it to keep something valuable, so at the end I decided I'll use it to put the books I'm reading at the moment so they won't lay on my bedroom carpet, and when I put them inside (I'm reading three at the time) I felt this Harry Potterish feeling that I was actually the owner of a Gryffindor trunk like the one Harry uses!! ^^ So magical... and then I remembered that with my friends wanted to go to the Wizarding World that will be soon be opened its doors!!! I wish we had the money!

Anyways, today was a nothing day... nothing extraordinary happened nor I did anything special; so this autumn-Harry Potter-books theme is everything I'll write for today, until tomorrow.

Today I learnt: I like the convination of green and fucsia.

See ya soon, lads!

Day one

A couple of days ago my English teacher asked us to write about friendship, just an opinion. I felt it easy, like I knew what I was writing about... today I realized I was wrong. Why?? Because I felt it much more close, much more true!!! ^^

In my first day of 20 years-old I cried... wanna know why?? Because I was saying goodbay to my book-sisters, my (I know this now!) Soulmates! I missed them so much even when I could still see them through the window of their bus, I smiled but then I cried of happiness and because I was already missing them. I know I'll see them soon (We already arranged something!) but it was so great to have them here, in my home like we were truly sisters, talking and laughing and everything. A long birthday day but so short at the same time.
We found each other about two or three years ago through a common interest: Narnia. And now we are like this inseparable... it's so weird, so magical and special, just like them.... just like all of us.

New friends, old friends, soulmates, family and a lot of sweet food for the tea party made the perfect birthday for me, the best in my twenty years of life. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!
And you know?? Things like this, days like this make you feel so great, and happy and like there was nothing wrong with anything, like everything is perfect... I guess that's what birthdays are, for reunite with the people you love that makes you feel like this: big and full.

This is everything for now. See you tomorrow falks!

Today I learnt: I hate goodbyes.

Love and kisses, Safi.

20 years-old

Today is my birthday. Today, twenty years ago at around half past five in the afternoon I was born in the hospital of my city, La Plata. Wow, twenty years ago!! I'm two decades old!!! ^^
Sometimes I feel very sad because I feel I haven't done anything for this world I live in, I feel so useless... But today, in some odd way, I feel I'm just a few minutes old, I feel new and ready to help and see, and read, and paint and listen to the world. Idealistic, I know.

In a few minutes I'll take the bus to the bus station to meet my friends and kipnap them and bring them home to my tea party. I already put on the decoration (a mix between the circus, Harry Potter and Alice in Wonderland), the food's ready and my house is clean... Oh, right now I'm alone here and again I'm sorrounded by this odd silence broke only by "Married life" from the movie Up... beautiful! Aunt, cousins, uncles gonna come later here, it's gonna be mad! A mad house, a mad tea party with mad people!! :P

Ok, I think this is enough for today. Tomorrow'll write again and the next day as well and so on. But today, people from the world, I start my new blog with my new thoughts, my new feelings and all the things I'll start learning from now on.

Today I learnt: There are this tiny little white spiders in my garden trees and I SHOULD NOT get close to them... they jump.

See you soon. Kisses, Safi.
