Wednesday, August 20, 2014
Anyhow, as every good student I spent the entire summer saying I will start studying the next day and had instead chosen to do something more pleasurable (at least in my book): watching TV series and creating (I made tons of bobbin lace jewellery some other DIY projects and I also draw quite a lot.). Oh and I have also done tons of writing. I must say there's nothing that spikes my creativity as the need to study. But back to my favourite way to spend time - TV series. This past summer I grew particularly partial to (almost) any police-related series that ever existed (and I was able to put my hands on). And seeing I had already seen the popular ones (namely NCIS, NCIS Los Angeles, Bones, Castle... Not that this stopped me from re-watching the last two all over again) I had to do something drastic - I went to IMDB and watched the pilot episode of almost every TV show they have listed under action/drama/mystery/thriller (I think it was only one of those words, but I can't seem to find the page to verify which one...). Oh, what a great time this was. I must say I found most of them boring, some were OK, and there were also some I didn't want to end. But there was also one I was surprised to see...
Do you remember a while back when I was fussing all over this new TV show that's coming to ABC? It's called Forever and it follows a medical examiner working in New York. Nothing special you say? Not exactly, this ME we're talking about can't die (that poor bastard... But I guess they had to find a reason to name the series Forever?) Anyhow, as it turns out (and I didn't expect this at all!) there's another series that follows a immortal man living in New York. So the concept isn't completely new, but who cares?I've seen like three adaptation of Pride and Prejudice, but it still gets me every time! And fact remains, these two shows are only similar in the basic concept - they're both about a man who can't die. Gosh, I almost forgot to tell you what's the title of the other show (I just checked, it was on FOX and it was cancelled after one season. Damn, now I'll never know who was John's true love!). Well it's called New Amsterdam (that's right, I hadn't heard of it before this summer as well. Also here's a fun fact: The series is (my guess!) called New Amsterdam, because this is what the island of Manhattan was first called when the Dutch inhibited it. I'm so smart right?!?).
I bet there's many more similarities and I promise to keep you posted. Though there's one more thing you should know not to expect in New Amsterdam... In forever dr. Morgan dies, he's reborn in water (I think it's the East or Hudson river. Not sure, but I'm not even an American, so you should be proud I even know which rivers are there. I knew watching TV series will pay me off one day!!!). This is probably the writers attempt to make his re-birth symbolic, but since he's re-born naked, it really comes out as a one big joke. And why on Earth doesn't he hides clothes near the place he comes out of the water. Public indecency is a b***h. No naked dude being re-born in a river in New Amsterdam. The one time it shows him die, the man dies and than wakes up again. You know, like when somebody is falsely pronounced dead and they stick a needle in him in the morgue and he jerks up as he wakes up?
So, if you're bored (like I am. Right now I'm watching CSI. But this is more for research for one of my stories. Wouldn't want to get the forensics wrong when I'm solving a crime on paper!), and can't wait for Forever to start on TV, you can try to get your hands on New Amsterdam. It's not the same, but it gives you a taste of what I think will be a great TV show (it better be. There's no way I'll have to watch Katherine Heigl save the White House or Josh Duhamel make fun of something with his partner on the streets of Battle Creek).

For me it's this time of the year again. The finals month. Yep, that's right, the college I go to has a finals MONTH! Talk about going overboard =)
Anyhow, I'm not really happy with the way the college I go to teach and the way it forces us to study. Way too much theory and the fact I can only study psychology 24/7 makes me wanna puke. Which I probably will after all the coffee I consumed to make up for the sleep deprivation studying is causing. And for the next month don't you dare to say that studying isn't killing you. Because in my world it goes like this: studying is for exams, exams cause stress and stress can kill you or at least cause some pretty disturbing things (like insomnia, it can lower the ability of your immune system which than makes you more vulnerable to all the germs flowing around, and I on and on...)
For closure, I think I did horribly on the exam, my mind went blank and I was barley able to figure out one right answer (that I'm 100% sure it's correct). So yey, for now my score is only -39 points ;)
And to not get all depressed for the next month, because I'm probably gonna be such a failure and flunked all ten exams I need to pass to finish my glorious (NOT) year in college!

What I'm talking about are Hershey's kisses. Yep the chocolate ones. And I know how hard it is to believe I never had one, but it's true. I've always ate either Milka or Gorenjka (a local chocolate factory) and in the past few years Lint and some other Swiss based chocolate factories. But never in my life have I ate Hershey's chocolate. I know, I know, I've been to USA and I had a chance to buy and eat Hershey's chocolate... But the thing is, when I'm travelling I'll rarely spend money on something as unnecessary as food. As a matter of fact I lost 5kg while I was in NYC this past fall. Impressive, ha?
|I tried the ones with white chocolate and cookies|
I don't now if you tried them before, but I absolutely loved them! They are DELICIOUS! Maybe a bit too sweet, but this is the way I like it =)
kiss, kiss, kiss

I became obsessed with this TV series called Awkward. I don't know how it happened, or why, I just know I just spend the last four hours binge watching it. I already went through the last and the first two seasons. So, high five for me, I still know how to spend the day doing absolutely nothing productive! God, my life sucks.
But so does Jenna's, the main character in the Awkward series. Except I'm a tad older than she is and my problems doesn't involve guys. At all. Because I don't have a boyfriend or a crush I can do something about. I'm single and it looks like it's going to stay this way for a while. I kind of don't mind, having a boyfriend is hard work and right now, I'm kind of happy I'm single. And this is the end of my pity-party&pep-talk-for-my-better-self-esteem-in-one. For now.
Anyhow, she has tons of problems, and so do I. Even though I am older than her, I can still relate and this is why I got sucked in (and created another problem!) and can stop thinking about the series. I mean seriously it's addicting. And if it will continue this way, I might actually need to go to rehab. Because right now, all my favorite series had a season finale and I'm suffering from a serious withdraw problems. (Fine, I'm having one more minute of this pity party, bu then I'm over!)
Hurahay, I got over myself and party over my obsession with Awkward. Maybe I'll just watch one more episode, or two... Maybe one more season?

I'm crying over the cancellation of Suburgatory, but the worst news was the cancellation of The Crazy Ones! And to top that off, they ended with a cliff-hanger. A freaking CLIFF-HANGER!!!! Now I'm not crying, I'm mad. I'm really mad.
Don't those people on TV know what it does to a person to not know the end and the horrible feeling you get from knowing you never will. Would it kill them to decide a month before on weather or not there will be another season? Maybe then the writers could wrap things up in a decent way. And definitely without a freaking cliff-hanger.
Anyhow, right now I want to tell you about this one series that is coming on TV (I believe in fall 2014, but if I could change that I would want to watch it right now). It's called FOREVER.
The story centers around a 200 year old guy (played by that dude from Ringer - Ioan Gruffudd) that work in the morgue and helps solving crime. Oh and he's immortal, but doesn't know why and does his best to figure out why he can't die. And there's a love story. There's always a love story.
Anyhow I'll be writing more about the TV shows that I love and adore and am obsessed with in the near future. For now, this is it.

But back to basics. If I'm not mistaken I already mentioned I joined Wattpad. It's this awesome Internet community in which you can publish your works and read works of other people for free. But be careful, you might get addicted. I definitely did. But join anyways!
Soooo, I kind of started on a new book. I decided to test my theory that I'm a decent writer and prove to myself I can write in English just as good as in my native language. So far, so good.
The book is called One Night Love Affair (just click on the title and you'll be reading it in no time at all). I don't know if you know singer Paloma Faith, but few nights ago I was chilling and surfing the web, when I came across her song Only Love Can Hurt Like This. I absolutely loved it! So I checked out her songs and fell in love with 30 Minutes Love Affair. Yes, this is the song that inspired the story.
The story currently only has one chapter, but I kind of know exactly what will happen in the next four. I just have to take the time and put my thoughts on a paper. Hopefully I'll be more consistent with publishing this story then I'm with writing the blog ;)

But a week ago, after going trough all the bookmarks on my Suzy (I finally decided on the name for my laptop. And when I get a car I'll name her Betty. Then I'll have Petunia - my tablet, Suzy and Betty. This is what you get for being afraid of dogs, allergic to cats and a growing dislike for pets of any kind.) and I found an Avon Impulse page. Out on a whim I decided to write a series of epic romance novels. So far I've already have the in-detail plot for the first and second book, and a rough plot for the fifth one. Also I just finished first and started on the second chapter of the second book today. Basically, the books will be about five friends, that met in college, bonded over their love of wine and books. Soon they create a book club appropriately called Wine Club. Each girl will get their own book. This is all I'm gonna say for now, but I'm having a lot of fun writing and creating the girls stories. Hopefully, I will finish the fourth chapter by the end of the week and will be sending the manuscript to the Avon Impulse people. Fingers crossed they'll like it. I will keep you posted on the matter.
So this kind of get me the needed motivation to start blogging again, hopefully this time, I won't give up so quickly.
Another thing happened in the past two months, that's worth talking about. The ice skating season is over and I even accidentally saw a real hockey game! The thing is, I was ice skating as a part of a class I choose to take this year (It was called something like: Medicine and preventive in sport) and I had an exam last week. At seven thirty p.m. on Saturday. If I was a regular twitter user, this is how I would capture this event:
#ThatAwkwardMoment when you're having a ice skating exam in front of 40 soon-to-be professional hockey players. At least I didn't fall. This time.
|Not exactly what I had to do, but I just love this gif =)|

To get you to the speed in case if you haven't heard of the movie yet, it's about three guys who plan on being single together, but end up in a relationship with what trailer shows as a potential "the one". And in this relationship they each get to that awkward moment.
According to the movie each relationship get to that point once, personally I have no idea, because I've never been in a relationship (more accurately I haven't been in a relationship since I was eleven, which is the same as never).
Maybe you remember, maybe you don't but one of my celebrity crushes is Zac Efron who stars in this movie. I'm not a crazy obsessed fan or something, but I do read all kinds of gossip sites so I must confess I know (probably) more than I should about him (and other celebrities). But with this movie the interviews took turn for the strange&crazy.
According to the internet Zac Efron doesn't have any particular turn offs when falling for the girl. But he does say he hates this movie Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants. And that he wouldn't watch the movie even in exchange for 10min of the best sex ever. So ladies if you want to subtly tell Zac Efron you want to break up, just try and make him watch The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants.
Maybe it's just me, or it's just that I'm a female, but I liked that movie. Not to mention that Blake Lively plays in it. I watched far worse movies just so I could see a hot dude that plays in it (like Magic Mike. The story isn't something I'd call good, but the fact Channing Tatum and Matt Bomer strip in it was good enough for me. Adding Alex Pettyfer to the mix was like putting a cherry on the top). And what about Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants 2? Would he watch that movie? (I just came up with another not so good movie. High School Musical. One, two and three. No questions there of why it was so popular. I mean it had hot guy, cute girl, a relate-able story and catchy songs. What more is there to a good movie?)
I also came across with how Zac Efron looks like when he is in a awkward situation. And yes, he's still super hot ;) The thing I'm talking about are two interviews he did together with his co-stars Michael B. Jordan and Miles Teller First was this hilarious game they played in a Cosmo interview, where they had to guess whether the word names a cocktail or a sex position. The second and even more hilarious was the interview they made with Conan this funny talk show host. I re-watch it every time I feel down and/or depressed.
So this is the point I'm trying to make. At one point in the past week I went from a "special" type of person to the crazy with a click of a mouse. I got obsessed with watching celebrities trying to prove they're a normal human beings, which often result in them humiliating themselves. Especially if Conan gets involved.
Have fun people and be yourself (or in my case-crazy).

And here we are again. Me telling you it's been another week. Which you probably already know, unless you're not capable of counting to seven and knowing that we have seven days in one week.
Anyhow, this week's quote is a bit dark, but in my defence it was Valentine's Day on Friday and I was (once again) all alone. Just kidding, I spent most of it with my friend. We had more fun than she did with her boyfriend. Once again, just kidding. But she did got a better present from me than him. There just one tini tiny thing. My present was for our Christmas tradition of buying each other stuff we don't really need, but feel like we should buy it anyway.

So at the end of January I watched this wonderful movie and I decided I just have to write about it. It's called Heart of the Country and iMDb categorized it as drama/romance. The story has some really heart wrenching moments, and I cried at the end, so it definitely is a drama. But I also cried while I watched Iron Man 3, and there's nothing sad about that story (except the end. I have some issues with endings where happens three thounsand stuff in 30 second frame, but before we ha to watch a minute frame of Tony Stark driving a car. Sometimes I just can't understand Hollywood), so me crying probably isn't a legit way to categorize movies.
STORYThe story centres on Faith (played by Jana Kramer) a woman whose husband is accused of fraud in a Wall Street Ponzi scheme. When he's arrested, he tells Faith to leave New York and luxurious lifestyle she can no longer afford (FBI froze their accounts), and go back home to rural North Carolina, to her father and sister. Because of the movie's portrait of the love between father and daughter, the plot of the story is also said to parallel the famous parable "Prodigal Son". I don't want to write any spoilers, so this is all about the story I will write, but I think it's a nice tale, telling love can concurs all (I'm not talking just about the romantic love, but also fatherly love, which is a nice diversion from all the romance movies I saw in the past years).
A LITTLE BIT ABOUT THE ACTORS
Gerald McRaney who plays Calvin, Faith's father, is known for his work as Rick Simon from series Simon&Simon and Maj. John D. "Mac" McGillis from TV series Major Dad (I have to admit, I'm too young to watch these series, the only thing I know about them is what I read about them from the description box in iMDb). In the past few years he mostly played guest roles in different shows, like House of Cards, Fairly Legal, Mike and Molly...
Randy Wayne, who plays Faith's husband Luke, is known for his role as Brandon in Honey 2 (he played next to Kat Graham) and also for playing Justin Miller in now cancelled series The Lying Game (that role is the reason I felt like I know him from somewhere the whole movie. I was a big Lying Game fan). Currently he's working on four movies (don't know if he has big roles in them, that are just the information I found on the internet) and has a movie that came to theatres in America yesterday: Android Cop.

For this week I chose a quote from the author of seven of my favorite children books. They talk about kids who visit this enchanting world called Narnia where animals and trees can talk. Where you can meet dwarfs, giants and all kinds of different creatures. They are lead by a fierce leader, a lion named Aslan.
If you still don't know who I'm talking about (but probably you do, because three of the books were made into three quite successful movies), I'm talking about C.S.Lewis.
Enjoy the rest of the weekend,
