B.L.A.C.K Earrings

by evilnymphstuff

Today it’s a public holiday!! Yeah! Because the muslims are celebrating Eid-Ul-Fitr :) therefore I had to go to my weekly maths tuition in the morning. It’s a trip of 1h and I didn’t want to miss the bus thus I hurried myself a little bit. On my way I realised: omg! I forgot to put on my earrings!! :O I know that guys just can’t really understand this because I know it was not the end of the world but I hate to feel my ears ‘naked’… and fortunately I saw a stall of girly things and I quickly bought a pair of black earrings:

black round big earrings

Very simple but gorgeous on me :)

Usually I don’t like this type of earring because the tips tend to squeeze my flesh too tight and I get hurt and that’s why I don’t put these anymore, but today I had not much choice and let me tell you that THIS pair doesn’t hurt my ears at all!! I loved them instantly :)

(Remark: see the background of the photo? It’s my graphbook for maths :))

A Random Quote of The Day…

by evilnymphstuff

quote of aristote in greek

Alright I know you don’t read/speak Greek (do you?) therefore I’ll translate for you – thanks to google:

“He who can create, can destroy.”

Aristotle.

Well something like that :) and it’s so beautiful and strong! One of my favourite quotes :D

In fact the photo comes from a book my friend was reading and as I was learning Greek – yes I know some words lol – she asked me what that mean… but I had to search through google because it’s written in old Greek, not the modern one I was learning.

One day I even wanted to put my facebook page in greek and it was fun! Until I created my MakeupIsArt page (http://www.facebook.com/pages/Makeup-Is-Art/251998058144343) then I was worried whether it would appear in greek too so I changed back to English :D though English is still a language I never speak except for oral exams xD

Anyway, I’d like to know about your one favourite quote! :D please comment below!

10 Things I Want To Relive: I’ve been tagged!

by evilnymphstuff

I got tagged to make this list by my friend Andy (check out his awesome WordPress blog here: http://dragoneystory.wordpress.com)

The tag is from Twitter but I think it’s better to write it here… and therefore make a WordPress tag! So I tag ALL of you who are reading this and when you’re done put the link to your post in the comment box below :) whatever blog you have.

So I’ve been living for 16 years and it’s very short… thus it’s hard for me to remember the moments I want to relive… 10 things out of 16 years! lol that’s really hard for me! Especially that I don’t remember anything from the first five years of my life…

There isn’t any particular order to the list…

I begin:

10 Things I want to Relive:

1. My first 3 years of secondary school life – when the word ‘stress’ didn’t belong to my vocabulary.

2. My moments with my best cousin, Arthur, when we were little, still innocent children.

3. The 2008 Drama Festival.

4. This Friday 13 when we were enjoy ourselves with a superstitious Keshree (a friend) before she went to live in Canada for ever…

5. When my best friend and I were enjoying a movie “A walk to remember” (so beautiful!) just before the exams in tthe lecture theater at school.

6. When most of the school was in the lecture theater watching Tangle (lol so funny!!) a day before Stress would come over…

7. Music classes of Ms Clarisse.

8. When I was hanging with my best friend in primary school who unfortunately left to emigrate to Australia.

9. The series of nights I was having premonitory dreams.

10. When close friends that are no more friends were still friends…

Well that’s all I could get from my short life :P I know that later in the future I’ll be enjoying so much… then maybe I will re-tag myself… :)

Passion of Hate, Passion of Love

by evilnymphstuff

So I was randomly browsing Yahoo! Answers and I found two curious interesting answers that I wanted to share with you:

One was “Hate is not real.”

Well if hate isn’t real, then love isn’t either because both are passions and promotes to our balanced world… I hate denying one of them… it’s either both or none. What I mean is that I believe that if you have been experiencing passionate love, you’re likely or you have surely felt pure hatred in your life… Or else, you’re altruist or a misanthrope!

The other was a beautiful quote from Martin Luther King, a great man: “I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear.”

Well I’d better stick with hate! LOL no I’m kidding don’t worry :D

Just that I can’t live without both. I need to hate as much as I need to love and I must be despised as much as I’m being loved. That’s my philosophy about passion. :)

7 Symptoms of Infatuation… or Love?

by evilnymphstuff

As I’m still 16, I don’t have much experience in it, but when I think that I’m in love, when Cupid pierces my heart with one of his arrows, I feel:

1. Nervous when I’m close to the person.

2. I feel like I’m blushing a lot.

3. I quick glance at him and when our eyes meet I get so excited.

4. I become very shy.

5. I just don’t know what to do.

6. I fear deceit and rejection.

7. I just really want to communicate but I feel paralysed.

Is this love you think? Because in fact after some time, even if I begin to make friends a little bit, I become tired of loving and therefore in the end it’s just a good friend. That’s why I don’t want to embrace in a relationship because I fear that I might reject the person… or worse, that he might ignore me (and that because it already happened to me!)

But as I’m still in puberty – I guess – I think that what I feel is infatuation. :) Therefore I’m not very into that subject although I’m 16… I prefer to wait til the boys become more mature… like when they hit 18… and me too!

Though I’d just like to know what are your opinions on love? I’d love to know what are your thoughts on it, if you’ve ever met true love… how was it? Or if you think that an adolescent shouldn’t worry too much about that…?

Please feel free to comment below! :) You don’t need to be a WordPress user to do this! ^^

Tip: “how I can get my blog more popular?”

by evilnymphstuff

This was asked by one of my blogger friends – yeps contacting me for advice although I’m still a beginner lol! Her name is Autumn and click here to check out her great blog! :)

I did a short reply – because we were ‘chatting’ – sort of – by mail :)

Here’s what I answered:

Hi what did work for me is responding to comments – in any other way because google won’t allow replying :) – and commenting a lot on other blogs! Give other people courage to continue writing :) follow everyone of them because that doesn’t cost you a thing and because most of them deserve it and will encourage them :)

Hope this helps! ^^

A short tip for all of you too guys because that’s how I’m doing right now and it works great! (I have to do that on WordPress too lol but I just don’t have much time for 2 blogs :) and anyway business blog comes first in the goal of getting famous!)

When I’ll get new techniques I’ll tell you ASAP!

Do You Follow Yourself?

by evilnymphstuff

Well, I DO. Yes it’s true, for both of my blogs. I follow/subscribe myself.

Is this a way to get another bonus follower? No not really.

What it does is that this way you can be at the same time the writer and the reader.

Got it?

No.

Alright, here’s the trick:

When you follow youself, you can see how people get your notifications about your posts, and this can make you improve. For e.g. when I first started writing a blog I wrote too many posts at the same time, and I wrote LONG posts. That’s not right at all because then I get lots of mail and when you have lots of mail I guess you just end up marking everything  as ‘read’ or simply don’t bother check your mail anymore. This will make you learn how to control yourself if ever you have this problem.

Maybe you’re not aware of your presentation mistakes, because just like a book, if the cover is nice, it is read. First impression = last impression, right?

Always try to be at your readers’ place and you’ll do the right thing.

Do People Change? Or Do My Eyes Open At Last??

by evilnymphstuff

Do you believe in reincarnation? In legends? Myths? Other insignificant things? Well as a -personal- writer, I sometimes do, especially when I have to write on these themes… And sometimes, I really feel myself INTO it…

I’m not superstitious but sometimes I like to be as if I was :)

My name is Morgan, and I can be evil, if I want, only to people I really loathe.

My name is Daphne and I am a nymph…

I write a blog, an Evil Nymph’s blog…

I can be pitiless, but I can laugh.

I can believe in dreams – literally i.e. dreams you have when you sleep – that become real.

I can believe that I was a sorceress’s reincarnation.

I can imagine that my favourite cousin was previously Arthur Pendragon, therefore, my brother.

I can think that one day my “brother” and I would quarrel and never be friends again… like the legend says… although it seems impossible because Arthur and I are ONE. Best Cousins Ever.

But what I could not believe was that everything I believed could indeed be true.

This year was a different one, like any others. But this year, Arthur and I are really going to end in bad terms. I’m so frustrated by him! He ends up swearing and says idiot things! I can’t stand him anymore!

Therefore, my imagination starts to wander…

Did the Arthurian legend really comes from true facts? Did Morgan and Arthur really existed? As a writer I believe so.

But then are events of the past really repeting themselves after so many centuries!?

Very interesting thought to muse on…

My Weirdo Story

by evilnymphstuff

This is only a warning to an upcoming post I am currently writing and that when I’m re-reading it I feel I am tthe only one to understand it. So just a little background on my imagination…

The post is about my frustration: I’m currently in bad terms with my cousin who is abroad, a cousin with which I’ve always lived, like a brother.

It also conveys my obsession – “love” is not strong enough I guess… – for Arthurian legends; my interest in the mystery of life i.e reincarnation, past lives etc… and the strong belief that legends and myths did exist in a way…

I’m a sort of dreamy not-in-this-world writer girl.

Don’t judge me.

Accept it :)

PS: I just love writing that’s why I can post almost anything, from sense to nonsense! xD

Abracadabra! It’s gone by itself!

by evilnymphstuff

Indeed I guess this should be in my list of WordPress complications!

One day I was posting something… as usual… and when after some googling – my favourite activity lol! – I decided to check my post in its final state… WordPress said that it got ERROR 404!!! And as internet nerds you all know what this means!! (it means: my post cannot be found!)

For an instant I thought it was like the other day when my post got suddenly blank after having written it for 45 mins! But it was not this kind of complication. It was fortunately less serious.

What really happened: When WordPress told me “Congrats! This is your # post! ****! This post has # words.”, in fact he was LYING! It had been too lazy to publish my post. Therefore my post just stayed where it has always been: in the drafts! So I just reclick the PUBLISH button and this time I checked immediately whether it’s been GENUINELY posted. Ouf! It was! yay!

Now I click on “View Post” each time I publish a post. In case my readers got a mail about a post that has never been.

I guess most of you did experience this… just that sometimes you don’t bother check your posts and you think they’re being read when they’re NOT! That’s how people end up complaining about “Oh I’ve got so few readers!” lol no the last part was just kidding ;D

Yours WordPressing,

An Evil Nymph.

What I hate about Me!

by evilnymphstuff

Everyone has at least one feature which one doesn’t like, right? Well for me, it’s my height. Yep, simple as that.

too short too tall

I’m only 145 cm tall and 16 years old already!! Come on that’s not good at all! I’m so small :( That’s what people use as a critic when they hate me: “Oh you’re so short, you’re like a ten-year-old child!”

But what I know is that the height of a person cannot be changed by magic wands or whatever miracle. It’s our nature. I can’t change my height therefore I don’t feel guilty about it, though it’s also a reason why I feel helpless when one mentions my height.

If you are fat, you are luckier than me: you can change by doing some exercise and following a diet. So smile those who complain they’re fat! :)

How about you? What do you hate about you?

A carrot, an egg, and a cup of coffee

by evilnymphstuff

This is a beautiful story I received in my mail lately… It’s a forward message that I think should be shared to everyone! Feel free to reblog this… and enjoy reading! :)

GOOD ANALOGY. What are we?? :)

A carrot, an egg, and a cup of coffee. You will never look at a cup of coffee
the same way again.
A young woman went to her mother and told her about her life and how things
were so hard for her. She did not know how she was going to make it and wanted
to give up. She was tired of fighting and struggling. It seemed as one problem
was solved, a new one arose.
Her mother took her to the kitchen. She filled three pots with water and placed
each on a high fire. Soon the pots came to boil. In the first she placed
carrots, in the second she placed eggs, and in the last she placed ground
coffee beans. She let them sit and boil; without saying a word.

In about twenty minutes she turned off the burners. She fished the carrots out
and placed them in a bowl. She pulled the eggs out and placed them in a bowl.

Then she ladled the coffee out and placed it in a bowl. Turning to her
daughter, she asked, “Tell me what you see.”

Nora Roberts Review

by evilnymphstuff

It’s been a while since I’ve been reading Nora Roberts and recently I’ve borrowed one of her books: Blood Brothers; and I’ve thought about making a sort of praise and critic Nora Roberts post. Therefore…

What I like about her:

She knows how to capture her readers – whether they be horror books fan or romance book fans. Her writing is defined and beautiful. She has the ability to write about anything really… fortunately for me because I don’t like 100% romantic books… but at the same time she is faithful to what she has already decided: to write romance books. She knows her subject very well and does some research before writing. Very easy to read and description doesn’t make one sleep… :)

What I don’t like about her:

Her romantic stories are too… well too dreamy, “soulmates”-like, unrealistic… and when I read her books it hurts because I know it just can’t be like that in real life. She always follow the same pattern: if she writes a trilogy there are 6 main characters: 3 men and 3 women – and in each book Nora tells the story of each couple. After some time you get bored with her novels because you already know this pattern – therefore no unexpected turnover of the romantic story, no cheating ;) then you better prefer and concentrate on the background story i.e. the horror included one or mystery included one… :)

Thus her single books are better as the romantic story in them are more profounded and better told… but not for me because I don’t like romance ^^ compared to the trilogies which are full of different themes!
