Au Revoir Simone - Fallen Snow

ideos like this one make me wanna be in a forest drinking tea with cupcakes and french patisserie; and then go around running between the trees or serching for rabbits or playing hide and seek. Make me wanna leave a kite fly in the sky, or write or sew something... It makes me wanna...
I wasn't feeling well today, I felt like laying on my bed and sleep, just that... to rest. I wasn't tired nor anythign like that but I was feeling blue. The weather was cloudy and cold and a bit windy, just as I like it but it did not help, I wanted to be home... I think I was feeling insecure or frightened or something like that, with no reason at all!!! Poor of my friends that had to deal with my strange being today... sorry guys!!! :C

But now, after a nice nap, I'm so much better, not great but better. Maybe I'll do something fun... like sew my "Bag of Ideas" (that I was planning to make since last December!), or make the patterns, or draw a bit, oh, or READ!!! It's been so long since I read something with pleasure. I have to enjoy what is left of this Friday as for tomorrow I gotta do University's stuff... booooring!

So, message: Dear Weather Fairy, please make it rain tonight, give me some wind and a bit of a storm so I can ease my spirit and go back to my daily-smiling tomorrow. Thanks!

Today I've learn: Do NOT force myself to do stuff when I have not the energy to do it, it gives me fever.

"... and I too suffer."

My English teacher gave us this to read and, well, I just fall in love with it... Hope you like it!!

What I have lived for
Three passions, simple but overwhelmingly strong, have governed my life: the longing for love, the search for knoledge, and unbearable pity for the suffering of mankind. These passions, like great winds, have blown me hither and thither, in a wayward course, over a great ocean of anguish, reaching to the very verge of despair.
I have sought love, first, because it brings ecstasy- ecstasy so great that I would often have sacrificed all the rest of life for a few hours of this joy. I have sought it, next, because it relieves loneliness- that terrible loneliness in which one shivering consciousness looks over the rim of the world into the cold unfathomable lifeless abyss. I have sought it finally, because in the union of love I have seen, in a mystic miniature, the prefiguring vision of the heaven that saints and poets have imagined. This is what I sought, and though it might seem too good for human life, this is what--at last-- I have found.
With equal passion I have sought knowledge. I have wished to understand the hearts of men. I have wished to know why the stars shine. And I have tried to apprehend the Pythagorean power by which numer holds sway above the flux. A little of this, but not much, I have achieved.
Love and knowledge, so far as they were possible, led upward toward the heavens. But always pity brought me back to earth. Echoes of cries of pain reverberate in my heart. Children in famine, victims tortured by opressors, helpless old people a burden to their sons, and the whole world of loneliness, poverty, and pain make a mockery of what human life should be. I long to alleviate this evil, but I cannot, and I too suffer.
This has been my life. I have found it worth living, and would gladly live it again if the chance were offered to me.

Bertrand Russell (1872-1970) won the Nobel Prize for literature for his History of Western Philosophy and was the co-author of Principia Mathematica.

Well. I know what I think and feel about this, what about you??

Today I've learn: Dreams are a gift!

Gimme gimme gimme

Well, ABBA surely gives rythm to my day!!! They sound so great, so energetic and cool... makes me wanna dance! Yeah, dance... this is one of the few kinds of music that would make me dance!!! Weird.
ABBA has great songs, many many great songs, but for this reason or another "Gimme gimme gimme" is the song for today, funny (don't know how!)!! Yeah, I do know how and why... Rose knows. Give ya a hint: "bus-bishi"!!! :P
I'm planning my whole weekend for a special project I have to finish due Wednesday about a weird helmet with paintings of different scenarios, etc.

Big news: My mum finished editing my novel so I have to re-read it again (like for the sixth time!) and then I'll try to make it be published! I like the story very much and though it has some similarities with some books I love, it got my blood on it so it's very special and unique... I think. I just hope I'll have some spare time soon so I can re-read it, though that seems unlikely 'cause Uni got me by the neck. Furthermore, we're already at the end of May!!! Can't believe how time flew so fast... didn't see it... and as May is almost living us big exams are aproaching silently but scary. I'd like to have a whole week for doing nothing... or maybe read, yeah, read please! Start reading the books I bought at the Book Fair and which I haven't touched yet; I feel so horrible for this, so horrible!!

What else?? Oh, yeah,... found an interesting guy in the bus, saw him twice (he saw me as well!) though the second time I thought he was someone else so I pretend not to see him. Big mistake!!! I'm suddenly visible for some people that four months ago I would have being invisible for sure... Hum, don't want to think about that now. No.

Today I've learn: I'm so naif sometimes...


P.S.: I want ice-cream!!!!

My secret place

Don't you ever wished you had a secret place where only you can go?? A place where there'd be all you favouriste stuff, all the things that make you feel confortable and happy and safe... a house or a cottage or a bedroom in a hollow tree, anything you imagine.
My secret place would be in a clear field between some little hills with apple trees on the top and a great forest, dark and mysterious. It would be a cottage, a small, cozy cottage with a lot of little windows and a round door like the one of a hobbit's house; and there'd be this bedrooms:
-One for sleeping (with a huge closet)
-One for painting
-One for photography
-One for writing
-One for designing clothes, and a library (of course!) a nice living-room with a fireplace, and a nice kitchen with pans and cups and dry flowers hanging from the roof. Oh, and I'd have my cat with me and also a brown rabbit and a ferret as pets. And outside, I'd have a tiny garden with raspberries, strawberries and carrots, tomatoes and potatoes (my fav fruits and veggies).
The porch from the back of the house would have three rocking chairs looking to the forest, where in the first big and old tree before the forest began would hang a swing which would only swing with the wind blowing from inside the forest... a mysterious swing.
Of course, as this place would be "my secret place" the only way to go in and out of there would be possible only by bike or by feet or flying... Anyways, it would not be easy to be found!

Oh, well, one day I'll live in a place like this. For now, I gotta go back to my homework ¬¬

Today I've learn: Some people should NOT be teachers, ever!


P.S.: And roses, loads of roses would circle the my secret place, roses in the windows, by the door and the road.

Nobody saw us coming, nobody could ever guess that Dandelion Book Club would be this freaky, this bookaholic and this cool! Yes, we're so awesome!! ^^

This are my friends, this are the freaky friends of mine with whom I share my book love and my freakyness (does this word exist??). We are Dandelion Book Club and last Sunday we bought our first book to read: Wicked by Gregory Maguire (which we have two months to read and comment). My, the look from the women that sold us all the books was pretty horrible, she probably thought it was a joke... we took photos in the middle of the stand sorrounded by passers by that looked us just like the seller-lady. Oh, but we were so happy!!!!!!!!

We arrived at Buenos Aires around 12 and since then we didn't stopped to anything else but to look, search and buy books. The Book Fair (didn't mention that it was there where we were) was pretty crowed and we got lost from each other like a thousand times going here and there all the time but... we managed to buy a lot of good books, cheap ones, and laugh from each other's freaky shouts in the middle of everything. I was a great great great day, even though after we left our feet felt like exploding, the days was one the best ever.

And the books I bought were, well, THE BEST!!! I bought almost everything that was on The List I did... I found such treasures!!! ^^ My, I think in a moment I really freaked out and shout of happiness and excitement... XD

Oh, but the best part was when we sat in the resting hall and made a huuuuuge pile of all the books we bought!!! Everyone was looking at us like we were crazy but it was so much fun, SO MUCH FUN!! And after that, a little girl took a photo of us, of Dandelion Book Club, of us freaks!!

So, thanks girls for the awesome day, for the laughs and for being as freak and lovely as you are!

Books I bought:
-Wicked by Gregory Maguire
-Cirque du Freak by Darren Shan
-Ivanhoe by Sir Walter Scott
-Wuthering Hights by Emily Brönte
-The lovely bones by Alice Sebold
-The City of Ember by Jeanne DuPrau
-James and the Giant Peach by Roald Dahl
-The October country by Ray Bradury
-A series of Unfortunate events: A bad beginning by Lemony Snicket

Bookaholics at the Book Fair:
(three girls at the top from right to left)
(six girls in the floor from right to left)

Alright, gotta go now and finish a loooot of homework from Uni.

What I've lear today: It's no fun to semi-fall sleep standing in the bus, no fun!


PS: I love you Dandelion's Book Club girls!
