This has been and, I feel, will always be a never-ending debate in our world. Books being adapted into movies. Bookworms against the cinematic world. In in this post, I just want to share my opinion about this issue.
Actually my point of view about this subject has evolved as the years have passed, through the three stages as follows:
I know most of you have been in this mindset: THE BOOK IS WAY BETTER THAN THE MOVIE!!!
Yes don’t worry I sided 100% with books too a few years earlier. I would always read first, or even if I couldn’t do so, still I would fiercely be excited about how the movie is so different and how the book was like… GOD, compared to a mere mortal…
I think it’s childish though that kind of behaviour… It’s stubborn as well and today it only reminds me of narrow-mindedness (like homophobia, though that’s too much of a serious thing) and… well, fangirling, which I always tend to frown at, although I admit I totally fangirl about Game of Thrones haha!
I remembered I made a similar post back in 2011 when I received my first and only Android phone, the Samsung Galaxy SII, in addition to a wonderful book of course.
Well this year, I also decided to get myself something tech-y as well as books and since I got my gifts way before Christmas (i.e. for more than a week)… today’s post is born!
But first, for the sake of the Christmas and holiday spirit, I’d like to share with you an event a group of YouTubers, including me, are doing to help other YouTubers, as during the holiday season we want to Do Good 🙂
Here it is:
Hope you have some spare time to watch it! If not, without further ado, here are my 2013 Christmas presents!
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’!)
I’m officially getting back to the Weekly Photo Challenge! And this week’s theme is The Golden Hour.
I took this photo from my room and it’s sunrise on a Saturday morning when I usually do my weekly morning jogging. It’s not a much recent photo but I think I never shared it with you right? Although I did on instagram.
When I first saw this week’s theme, pattern, it reminded me of my art classes at school a few years back. We had to draw a specific pattern all over an A3 size paper like the wrapping paper style… I didn’t really like it at that time.
Anyway, here’s my take for the challenge, a pattern that appeals much to me:
