Merry Samhain’s Eve!

Yeah it’s finally Halloween!

I hadn’t had the opportunity to celebrate it and I feel tired because of two exams papers I had to take today. Anyway, that doesn’t mean I didn’t really do anything for Halloween! And first of all I prepared my blog post for it:)

When I came home the first thing I did was to do my Parshell cross! It’s an old Irish tradition for All Hallow’s Eve. Simple and fun to do ^^ check out how HERE. My Parshell of the year:

Back to Teens!

I’d never thought that I’d come back to teens’ books.

I usually read young adults or adults books, you know those which are 400+ pages😛 As an avid reader since I was born (yeps my mom did the reading for me until I was grown enough to read by my own – I was so excited at that time and frustrated that I didn’t know many words), my reading levels went up very quickly. I read teens books when I went to secondary school therefore at 11 years of age. I read R.L. Stine, Christopher Pike, well there were so many. But NO Sweet Valley or things like that! Yeps at that age I was also very picky about books… and authors! There was a time when I would only read Pike’s books and no one else. Of course that changed. Then at 13 I think, I started with literary books like Jane Austen and Charles Dickens and Alexandre Dumas and Victor Hugo and…

Weekly Photo Challenge: Opportunity

“Opportunity”. This is the theme given for this week and we have to interpret this idea into a photo.

First we must define this term:

So what is opportunity to me? It’s a path, a road to success, to a better life. It’s when you have the ability to choose what is best for you. It’s hope.

I’m on the roof of my house. It’s early in the evening but the sun is setting already. I love to go there because where I live, this is the only ‘room’ when sunlight hits the most. That’s where we hung our clothes for them to dry LOL

Sites of the Month: October 2011

Before I get to the point of this post…

This month has been very fully active for me. First and foremost: October is the climax of my student life i.e. it involves exams! And worse! Now that Samhain’s Eve and NaNoWriMo are approaching, my international exams have come to their hottest points too! I feel that this week will be a very busy – productive is a nice word too I guess – with all of this. In addition I have to keep up with my two blogs and Twitter and read the blogs I’ve faithfully been subscribed too and therefore I have to check my mail constantly… Moreover now that my sister’s exams are over – she’s just 11 – and as she’s going to secondary school next year I allow her to have a glimpse of internet – i.e. I’m sharing my laptop with her… so I have less time for my virtual activities… which is so frustrating right now! Then there are the passive activities like reading and watching my favourite series, plus my urge of the night: to write in bed in my random copybook (you saw it here) – which is starting to lack pages… aww too bad I so loved it! I’ll ask my friend to buy another for me😛 (it was a gift from this very friend you see)

But you know what? I love my life that way.

Yes. You read it.

Haha I always find some interesting image on Google to add some… uh coffee? to a blog post!😀

A NaNo Update!

Firstly before I go on with the point of this post, which as you can read in my previous post I promised to write, I’d like to share a wonderful, touching post on the ups and downs of friendship – written by Aurora here: FRIENDSHIP: WHAT IS A FRIEND?.

Alright now… we are approaching Nanowrimo… and as I’m a planner, I’ve begun to plan my story and I’ve come halfway to it:)

I wrote everything down in a copybook… but as it was a mess, I decided to divide my notes into chapters (I used to do that for fanfictions) by index cards. Each card is one chapter and on one side I write the chapter number, while on the other side I plot main points. This is an awesome way to organise NaNo. Get inspired in an Alexandra Sokoloff’s post: The Index Card Method and Structure Grid

The Impersonifications of A Teenage Girl

On one of my inspiring nights, my pen started to write…

copybook with handwriting

Alright so I wrote about 2 pages recto verso + half next page…

I was writing about my life in all… how it changed/evolved since I entered secondary school when I was 11.

And you know what. My teenage life has been full of impersonifications! I guess I’m still trying to find my true self…

Anyway, I think I’ll copy what I wrote so that you can get to know a little bit more about me personally… I feel the need to type it down…
