I’ll be a princess when I grow up

Standard

I think I have finally succeeded to convince my mother that I am a bit out of my mind.
We were having the everlasting discussion: what job would you like to have?
What’s the point in thinking about it yet? I’m not sure. Of course, if I say I want to be a writer, my dad and mom start laughing.
One option is English teacher… But… Meh.
Then I’d like to be an architect. But again, I think it’s hard to find a job you love afterwards.
Absolutely no to journalism, from both of my parents. And i am left with the family travel agency. The third option.
But I’m not sure, because I shouldn’t have to chose now. There’s still plenty of time, right?
So, yesterday, faced with the classic question I told my mom my secret plan. I will become a princess. It’s very simple. I will marry Harry ( I mean, he is adorable ) and become princess or some kind of Dutchess. And Kate will be my best friend. Doesn’t it sound perfect? I blabbed about this for about 20 minutes, and finally my parents dropped the question. Instead they smiled at me, comforting. I am not crazy. I swear. My plan is very logical and easy to do.

Boooooooored.

Standard

So, my winter holiday is coming to an end and I had a dream where teachers were trying to kill the students. Literally.

What is my point? I don’t want to go back to school. I really don’t. I don’t even want to leave the house to meet my best friend. I am that kind of a lazy person. And then I come here and write about it, and I’m even too lazy to think about a normal subject.
what is wrong with me??

I need a caramel Machiatto.

Geez, I’m not making any sense.

This is wrong. I’m going to post some photos now. Excuse me.

The end of a bad day

Standard

I am having a very bad day, so bare with me for a while.
Do you ever have days when you just want to kill everyone around you, when you put all your effort to answer others’s questions, when every remark makes you want to kill yourself, when you hope that by hitting your head repeatedly against the desk will kill you, when nothing can make you smile?
Because I’ve been having those for about a week. And today my nerves have been stretched to maximum. I hate those imbeciles that don’t grade us based on our qualities, that popular girl everyone seems to be in love with, that person that is lucky and gets all good grades. I mean, the only one who has a more depressing life is the character in my book. And he was chosen to be a character, which is as good as things can get.
I want to be a fictional character. It would be much, much better. Why can’t Peter Pan come flying in my room? Why doesn’t the Doctor appear in his Tardis and take me away? Why can’t I solve cases with a high dysfunctional sociopath? Why can’t I kiss Jack Sparrow and then save him from the death? Why can’t I live in Barcelona and be one of Zafon’s characters?

I mean, not even Christmas songs can cheer me up, which is something.
Ugh, 3 more days until the End of the World. Hopefully.

Learning time: The picture of Dorian Gray

Standard

My throat hurts horribly, so I was stuck at home for the day. I can’t complain, though: being sick has its advantages. Whenever I get a day off school is a day of celebration, despite the finals approaching quickly ( Fridaaay, fridaaaay ).
To make time fly quicker I decided to watch Dorian Gray. I have read the book before, and I am a huuge fan of it. Huge. Immense. So I had quite high expectations from the movie. In vain, it appears, because the movie had absolutely nothing to do with the book. I can’t even review them together for instance.

The Book

Everybody knows and has heard of Oscar Wilde. Every page that I was reading I tried to store in my memory and never forget. That is how he writes. He is sarcastic, has a lot of monologues, all as memorable.

Expectations

I was waiting to see a blond, angelic, blue-eyed Dorian with a superior and always sarcastic Harry. I was waiting for a movie that actually followed the plotline. Last but not least, I was expecting more quotes from the book!! The scenery was… Just wrong. All those quotes I had underlined didn’t even appear in the movie.

Oh, oh and the end. Why…why would you change the most perfect ending a book has ever given to you? Why??

Reality

Dorian was played by a very talented actor, it was all good and nice. Except that the actor was brunette, with dark eyes. And had absolutely nothing to do with the description in the book.
Colin played… Well, flawless, as always a character that did not suit him at all.

Bits were changed, the ending was changed and it was a bit too..much.

I mean… We all got that Basil was obsessed with Dorian. That's the beauty of it. The not knowing if something ever happened between them.

You don’t just make them kiss and..!!

Buuuuut, this is just how I see it. Maybe it’s a little harsh. But that’s just because I’m a big fan of the book and the movie changed it too much.

Anyone read it/ seen the movie? What was your opinion? 🙂

The marvels of the Internet

Standard

Oh, boy, the Internet is great. Really. I mean, of course, there’s mean stuff out there and all that. But I just found the best websites. Ever. And I need to share this with you.
Here are some places you should go when:
you are disgruntled
you need to go in a quiet place
you want to make things okay
you need a hug
just click this.
you need to calm down

Hope this helps a bit if you are having a tougher day. It made me smile for a while! See you soon!! 😊
