Anyway, enjoy my contribution!

It was over.

She fell back onto the soft black velvet couch and let her phone slide down from her palm and fall onto the red carpet. It was over, even before it ever started. She did not cry though. She was out of tears. She was not surprised either. She had known this would happen.

But she felt terribly empty… and lonely.

Tempted

I’m a bit late I know, I’m sorry. Anyway, here’s finally this week’s Picture it & Write and the continued ‘Unpredicted’ series!

The loud music beat the walls of the hall and echoed through my ears unintelligibly while the multicoloured lights wobbled around. The scent of food and alcohol swarmed over the place, mingled with sweat. The bodies swayed and jumped all over the dancefloor. There were shouts and sing-along’s.

But I took no notice. None of them caught my attention. I was frozen in the middle of all this strange chaotic party, which had been organised by the drama club in honour of the new semester. I forgot all about my little black sleeveless dress which stuck uncomfortably to my skin and the glass of champagne my hand was holding for hours. Nothing mattered.

Why Avoid The Unavoidable?

Why avoid the unavoidable? Life itself is so simple, but we make it complicated.

We limit ourselves… and sometimes it just makes everything worse.

“I’ve been making a list of the things they don’t teach you at school. They don’t teach you how to love somebody. They don’t teach you how to be famous. They don’t teach you how to be rich or how to be poor. They don’t teach you how to walk away from someone you don’t love any longer. They don’t teach you how to know what’s going on in someone else’s mind. They don’t teach you what to say to someone who’s dying. They don’t teach you anything worth knowing.” 
― Neil GaimanThe Sandman, Vol. 9: The Kindly Ones

Yes, for teenagers, school is a perfect example of what I’m going to write about today. Of course, I won’t say that this type of education isn’t important; it does have advantages like, it is now critical to have passed high school and at least followed tertiary courses to have a stable and respectable job.

A Faded Flower

When I was about 13 years old I was fascinated about songwriting. I loved to write… and what is better for a young teenage than to express her messy feelings by a song. Well in fact I only wrote. I did not know – and I still do not – how to compose a song, with the melodies and staffs…

I was flipping through the pages of my small ‘songs’ copybook and I found a short and lovely one called ‘A Faded Flower’ which I want to share with you today.

7 Symptoms of Infatuation… or Love?

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! ^^

Nora Roberts Review

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!
