life is what you make it

This life is what you make it. No matter what, you're going to mess up sometimes, it's a universal truth. But the good part is you get to decide how you're going to mess it up. Girls wil be your friends - they'll act like it anyway. But just remember: some come, some go. The ones that stay with you through everything - they're your true best friends. Don't let go of them. Also remember, sisters make the best friend in the world. As for lovers, well they come and go too. And babe, I hate to say it, most of them, actually pretty much all os them, are going to break your heart. But you can't give up because if you give up, you'll never find your soul mate. You'll never find that half who makesyou whola and that goes for everything. Just keep trying, hold on, and always always always believe in yourself, because if you don't, then who will sewwtie? So keep you head high, keep your chin up, and most importantly, keep smiling, beause life's a beautiful thing and there's so much to smile about.

It's the morning and just we two



Credits to my dad for showing me this awesome band. Not many people of my age know Cream, provably because they lasted only two years together, 1966 to 19968 (I know, good times for being a rocker, weren't them). However, in such a short time they released four albums, one of them being Disraeli Gears, which this song belongs to. They made cool psycodelic rock and their guitar player was quite good, his name was... nah, maybe you don't know him. It's Eric Clapton. See, I knew you didn't.

 Ladies and gentlemen, the great Charlotte Free for WildFox S/12.
I don't know if it's the clothes or the model and her pink hair or the landscape or the fact that I'm so looking forward for Summer holidays, but the truth is I can't stop looking at theese pics. Awesome artwork, dude.


New York

A few years ago, I had a dream. It began in the summer and was over by the following spring. In between, there were as many unhappy nights as there were happy days. Most of them took place in this café. And then one night, a door slammed and the dream was over.

My Blueberry Nights (2007)

My Blueberry Nights is easily between my 20 favourite films ever. It has been widely criticized (fairly many times) for things such as Jude Law's poor acting, implausability of some situations, clumsy and awkward dialogues, randomness of the character's actions... and the list goes on. I recognize that this film can be considered mediocre if you measure it with the same pattern that you use with the ordinary ones, but for me that's not the point. I guess its charm lies more on its grainy images, random slow motion footage while the audio goes on normally, remarkable abundance of sunsets, old school Jazz soundtrack, warm colour palette and deathly cute settings. For a bit more than an hour, you feel as you were sitting on the diner of a small in-the-middle-of-nowhere town, just staring at the rest of the customers and trying to figure out what their lives are like, with plenty of time to waste and a coffee and a slice of blueberry pie in front of you.

Some stories don't have a clear beginning, middle and end.
Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it, 
without knowing what's going to happen next. 
Delicious ambiguity...

moving on

Today I'm talking about ABC's Greek character Katherine. If, like me, you're a total freak of the show and you've seen the four seasons at least twice by now, you should have provably noticed this minor personage that, in my oppinion, has a lot to teach to everyone of us. And if you've never heard of the show or you did but don't like it, you're extremely likely not to understand what is going on in the next few lines. If so, I'm really really sorry for you, as you're missing one of the best teen series that has been broadcasted in the last two thousand years.

"Hi! my name is Katherine Parker, I'm former Panhellenic president of Gamma Psi Alpha. This house is specially important to me because this is where I lost my virginity. I know! it was like... two months ago! (awkward silence) So... how many of you guys lost your virginity at this house?"

As president of her sorority, chair of the panhellenic committee and always the best marks in the class, she likes to have absolutely everything under control. She's spent the last 19 years of her life caring about the future and being a responsible good girl, but now it's last year in college and she starts thinking that there's a great part of University life that she's been missing. So, with the determination and strict organization that characerizes her, she plans to do all the things the rest of the people have been doing during their three-year degree, but all in a rush. I'll never ever forget how she scheduled a time to lose her virginity to Rusty, and even came with a folder full of condoms for him to choose from. OR when she tried to seduce him only in a man's white shirt, saying she did "research" about what men found erothic. Wow.

I find this kind of attitude rather heart-touching, provably because there's a big part of Katherine into me. In fact, I'm sure every single one of us have a smaller or bigger piece of her in ourselves. It's her courage and determination to face the problems, and the fact that she isn't scared of accepting her limitations and doesn't let them make her feel less than others what I think has striked me the most. A huge applause to her.

The bruises go away, and so does how you hate, 
and so does the feeling that everything you receive in life 
is something you have earned.

Jonathan Safran Foer, Everything is illuminated


you got us this far, now problems are:


I find it hard, hard to let go, and you are entitled to know
you have brought nothing else but bliss, a great deal of frustration, 
a voluntary occupation, driving me insane and off the wall


10 things I hate about you

I hate the way you talk to me and the way you cut your hair. 
I hate the way you drive my car. I hate it when you stare. 
I hate your big dumb combat boots and the way you read my mind. 
I hate you much it makes me sick; it even makes me rhyme. 
I hate it, I hate the way you're always right. I hate it when you lie. 
I hate when you make me laugh, even worse when you make me cry. 
I hate it that you're not around, and the fact that you didn't call. 
But mostly, I hate the way I don't hate you. 
Not even close, not even a little bit, not even at all.

(I like how effortlessly beautiful Julia Stiles looks in here, not to mention Heath Ledger's cute casual tees and messy hair. And I like the way the whole film takes place within an atmosphere of normality, unlike the American series and movies for teens that are in fashion now, and where everyone wears exclusive-designer clothes and looks like they've just spent several hours at the hairdresser's. If you asked me to put it in a deep way, I would say that, in a plain look, what stands out is your personality, and not your level of superficiality or emptyness.)
