To a human being, a mountain is imposing, majestic, grand.
This is the Lion Mountain which is not far from my house and indeed watches over us.
I Think WAY Too Much!
Today I dreamt I had to sit for an exams… although I felt in holidays… so I had to learn poems. Not exactly related to the subject of this post but… it was scary!
Well maybe it is slightly related as the ‘right decision’ for me at the moment is all about education! After all, I just finished my A-levels and now I have to decide which course I want to study and which university I’d like to apply to.
For an 18 year old like me, these decisions are scary… since they feel to be life changing! Especially that I know I’m so whimsical concerning my future! I’ve always had many dreams, including the one of becoming a bestselling author which never fades away…
Yeah I’m getting back to the dailypost’s weekly photo challenge! And this week’s theme is ‘unexpected‘.
What I found unexpected lately was that instead of the sunny shiny weather we should have in summer, we are being drained in rain almost everyday since the holidays began. Though, let’s be frank, I like that rainy weather and that’s mainly because it’s not intolerably hot then. So I’m not suffocating in an overheated air!
The photo I chose for the challenge was one taken by my sister when we were at the hotel during the weekend and it kind of rained a lot the last day of our stay.
So no, don’t worry there’s no flood around my area, this is just a pool! A swimming pool.
Anyway, please feel free to leave your interpretation of ‘unexpected’ below!
If you want to watch the latest vlog I filmed (I did it at the hotel itself! Great way to start the holidays, right?) just go to the ‘Vlogging Channel’ tab at the top of this blog or just click HERE! By the way, I edit the ‘Vlogging Channel’ tab every time I upload a new video, thus showing you my latest vlog
Have a great day!

I don’t know why many people think ‘nerd’ to be pejorative.
So my exams are finally over! And my long long holidays, until I go to university next year in September probably, have just begun!
And what I’ve learnt during those seven years in college… is to be myself.
Which reminds me how sometimes people would call me ‘nerd’ to taunt me… but I would only be pleased, as for me being a nerd is awesome! How can reading books and getting obsessed over Game of Thrones NOT be awesome??
Thus, here’s how I’m going to spend my ‘nerdy’ holidays… at least for the time being!
1. Catch up on reading the Game of Thrones series! (I’m currently at ‘A Storm of Swords 2′!)
Of course, An Evil Nymph never misses Halloween, and you’ve been a follower since I started this blog, you are well aware that although I don’t get to properly celebrate Halloween because it is not a tradition or even an event in my country, Mauritius, I always find something Halloween-y to do.
In 2011, on the first Halloween I ever celebrated on this blog, I dressed up as a witch/druid/Wiccan girl and in 2012, I simply wore black and orange, the orange part being a DIY ‘An Evil Nymph’ tank top, and now in 2013 I’m going to dress up as a modern medieval lady/princess! As such:
In fact I have to go out today because I’m being issued my national ID card – so I’m officially an adult as from today And it’s luckily fallen on Halloween’s day!
Saturday 14th September 2013.
I was really nervous. Especially that they would not only be exhibiting my painting, but also my portfolio and the idea of so many people going through my drawings just freaked me out. I’m very sensible about my art and although I should think about that, I can’t help but wonder whether people like what they see or not.
At the CCEF, there are two categories of art courses: one is the adult one, from 14 years old and up, like the one I got myself into, and the second is for the smaller ones, the children one.
On the day of the exhibition, the works of the younger ones were hung on the wall outside in the common corridor while ours were waiting for us in the exhibition room.
The cocktail party wouldn’t begin before 16.30 but together with my parents I arrived at 16.20. I had more than enough time to admire the children’s drawings, all so filled with talent The children’s group was already present and waiting as well, By 16.30 my friends came and soon the director of the Centre let us in the exhibition room. My friends and I waited a little, allowing the children to go first and finally went in…
(I tried the panorama option, so as to get the whole room all together)
And there they were, all of our works, paintings, on the walls, shining in artificial light.
Without wasting a single moment, parents and friends all urged us, the masters of our masterpieces to pose next to our work so that they would capture this moment with their cameras That moment was actually so funny because we were just… lost in all this jungle of people staring at our work, taking photos… taking space as well. And the room wasn’t that big. But we finally made it to get to the front:
It’s tomorrow! And then my works will remain exhibited during a week, I believe. All the details are in this week’s video
Afterwards, I’ll make sure to tell you what happened and how it went, so stay tuned
