An Evil Nymph is Proud to Present… 2011 in review!

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2011 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 4,000 times in 2011. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 3 trips to carry that many people.

Wow WordPress really impressed me with that!!! This report thing with the breath-taking colourful design is so awesome 😀 Thank you to all my visitors and commenters! ♥ Wish you all again a happy new year ;D

Sorry for the irregularity of my posting habit of today lol! Two posts in a row! Whew! Don’t worry, just go and enjoy yourself, I won’t bother your inbox anymore for this very first day of 2012 xD Let’s party in the outside world as well haha!

Sites of the Month: December 2011

A wonderful and festive month is already coming to an end. It’s been a busy but also a fun and enjoyable month. I don’t have that much sites to share with you though because I was mainly trying to keep up with reading your blogs and with going out with my friends in the holidays.

It’s funny though that I did find time to learn cartomancy…

Merry Christmas + Awards Giveaway

Christmas is finally here 🙂

And because this is an appropriate time for giving, I would like to share two blog awards with you! In fact I have been receiving the Versatile blogger award many times and most were given by Andy from dragoneystory.wordpress.com and the One Lovely Blog award from Ermilia (ermiliablog.wordpress.com) which I didn’t find time to pass on.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Self-Portrait

This is me and my Sony camera in front of our Christmas tree 🙂

Alright I know that you can’t clearly see me through the red ball… but well I like the effect. I wanted my face to be clearer in the ball but there wasn’t better than that.

Anyway I’m busy with the end of year season and having fun nevertheless and I hope that you do too!

Christmas’s Ancestor: Yule

Today many Wiccans in the world are celebrating the winter solstice, also know as Yule. I’m not much of a practitioner myself because my family is strongly Catholic (not that they are narrow-minded but well… they somewhat know that I’m interested in Wicca anyway) but I love Wicca traditions and I always wear my purple pentacle during those seasonal festivals. Sometimes I find the time and opportunity to light a candle or incense for the goddess or use runes and symbols especially for healing and protection…

Wicca is simply everywhere.

Today it’s been raining cats and dogs though we had 100% sunshine during the whole week… and I’d like to thank the Goddess for that because my country has been lacking fresh water and we were in a period of drought.

Gifts That Come From the Heart [My Christmas/Yule Wishlist!]

My dear friend Aurora made a Christmas Wishlist not a long time ago and I love this post so much that I wanted to share it to you and also my wishlist. The things we should wish for should be more abstract (like peace, love, etc) than material (iPhone, toys, etc), because in the end we find out that the toys begin to wear out and break whereas love of your parents or any other relative and friend remains forever.

wish you would love me

As I’m a fan of Wiccan traditions I also know that Yule is coming soon (around the 21st) and this is in a way Christmas’s ancestor. It is to celebrate the winter solstice. Don’t forget to light your red and green candles 🙂

So here’s my Christmas/Yule wishlist for the year ending 2011 🙂

Weekly Photo Challenge: Celebration

Hey so the spirits of Yule and Christmas are 100% present by now and this week’s challenge suits the mood very well! So celebrating Christmas is first and foremost… The set up of the Christmas tree! 🙂

Christmas Presents – in Advance –

Hey I hope that everyone is enjoying the Christmas and New Year holidays 🙂 For Christmas, as I don’t believe in Santa Claus anymore LOL, I usually ask a special present and I get it in advance. Yes indeed IN ADVANCE. Why?

i) I’m so excited that I can’t wait,
ii) I prefer to give gifts instead of receiving one for Christmas.

I love the fact that I can surprise my little sister or help my parents wrap the presents. I like to be Sister Christmas you see 🙂 This holiday season is a time for giving, sharing… 🙂

And for those good deeds (that everyone should do), sometimes in the end I get an additional gift that appears in the middle of the early morning (after midnight lol) under the Christmas tree… like the time when my parents totally surprised me by offering me Dan Brown’s latest “The Lost Symbol” in the original cover + a book guide to it!!!

Snow Time… or Not

Hey so December is on the other side of the door… and so is Christmas 🙂 A month of joy and festivities!

But here we miss some of the magic because, well we don’t have snow. I’ve always dreamt of touching snow… but well, here it’s tropical weather and it’s summer of Christmas! Fortunately I don’t really mind…

Anyway this week, I want to share with you another contribution I made to Picture it & Write by Ermilia’s blog. The picture is:

it's snowing in the city

Just Like in the Movies…

After a whole week of celebrations – wedding anniversary, birthday, christening (yes and I’m the lucky godmother!! :D), etc… it’s finally time for me to rest…

Um wait, what?

Rest? haha still dreaming.

Yesterday I went to my first Alliance Française course for the year – it’s a course I take every year on French and especially in Literature. At the year end which is in July in this system, I have to take part in exams of course.

But this year is different because I’m shifting. I’m going a class higher, and because in my village they don’t have teachers available at that higher stage, I have to move out to town. So from now on, every Monday and possibly Tuesday, I have to travel to town to attend the classes. It’ll be tiring especially when school will start again, but well I have no other choice.

Anyway, what I wanted to tell you today is that yesterday, my first course was… um interesting.

And just like in the movies…

I felt so lonely.
