Forever Facts

It's almost end of summer, which you know what means? For you probably the beginning of new school year (or perhaps not..) but for me it means I have tons of work to do. Namely pass five more exams if I want to finish my year at college. Otherwise it was all for nothing.
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...
This is horrible quality, but the only thing I could find!

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?!?).
The basic difference is in Forever the star (from now on dr. Morgan) is a medical examiner, and the star of New Amsterdam (we'll call him Amsterdam. After all this is what he called himself) is a NYPD detective. At least this is what they are in this present life. However both of them have a confidant, a man they trusted their secret immortality. In both series you'll see flashbacks (at least I think so, I hadn't seen Forever yet, but from what I have read it looks like it), about the colourful life they both lived. So if you need a crash course of history of New York, please feel free and watch New Amsterdam. I don't guaranty you it's all accurate and realistic (after all, the man can't die!), but at least you get to see how the Flat Iron district and Times Square changed through time. It's a beautiful minute of every episode =)

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).

My Summer Project - LACE

I've learned how to make lace when I was about twelve years old. I took a class in school, and I liked it. When I went to high school and I stopped visiting the classes, I stopped making lace. But this summer I decided I want to make some lace jewelry, and because I forgot how to make some of lace making techniques, I googled if they were on the internet. They weren't, so I just had to make do with my old notes. Luckily for me, I have great motoric memory. I remembered how to make them, and now I want to share this knowledge with you. So I made videos of how to make lace. This is the first one. I know I have to make another one real quick with the basics of how to tie the knots between the bobbins in the pair. And how to prevent the thread from just falling off the bobbin. I promise I'll try my best and do that in the next 24h.
And now to lace making. I put the video on YouTube for everyone to see.


-Colored thread (I used the one that's usually use for gobelin-making instead of the thread for lace-making, because it's easier to see what I'm doing in the video this way), like pink and violet
-Two pairs of bobbins (that's four bobbins)


-First your bobbins must have thread on and be tied together in a pair (I did that before I start filming...)
-Put the pin into the middle of the pillow and put the bobbins, so you'll have each pair on one side (two bobbins with pink thread on the left and two bobbins with violet thread on the right)
-In each hand take the bobbin of the right and put it over the bobbin on the left. Than take the right bobbin (=the bobbin on the right side) in the left hand and put it over the left bobbin (the bobbin on the left) in the right hand.
-Repeat the movement. If you're doing it right you'll get the original setting of the bobbins on every fourth repetition. (if you started with pink on the left and violet on the right, after the first repetition you'll get (from left to right) pink, violet, pink, violet; the second time you'll get violet, violet, pink, pink; the third time: violet, pink, violet, pink; and the fourth time you'll get the original setting: pink, pink, violet, violet.)
-When the braid starts moving too much (it's too long to continue without moving too much) just put a pin in the middle (after you're finished with crossing the right bobbin in the left hand over the left bobbin in the right hand) between the bobbins, so you'll get two bobbins on each side of the pin.
-I went around the pillow three times, so I really learned how to make it. But you can just continue until you're sure you know how to do it with your eyes blindfolded.
-When you're finished you need to tie it. Take a pair of bobbins into your hands and put the right bobbin over the left one, so you have the right bobbin's thread under the left bobbin, and the left bobbin's thread over the right bobbin.
-You need to make two knots for each pair. Cut the rest of thread away right under the knots (be careful so you don't cut the knot.)
-Leave the lacy braid on the pillow for a few hours, than remove the pins and you have your first official lace.

I know that it doesn't look like much, but it's the basic. I already filmed the next technique, I just need to edit it. It's more practical than the four braid lace... BTW I used this lacy braid for a bracelet, but you can also use it as a decoration for your homemade bookmark...
Hope you like my summer project =)

Quote of the Week

This really should be my life motto. Sadly, I'm known on giving up on things if they don't go the way I want them to go... So this quote by William E. Hickson is really something I should do more often. I'll keep on trying to make this blog thingy really working - maybe this time it will be a success (I'm not planning on becoming famous, what I want is to establish a blog that will make people's life more interesting, make them happier...)

73 Questions... Just Like Blake Lively

Gossip girl is over (and we, I mean I am still mourning the loss!), so this means Blake Lively (if you've been living under the rock since 2007, that's the chick that played the legendary Serena van der Woodsen) has a lot more free time on her hands... I guess she's not fond of making a musical carrier, like so many young Hollywood actresses do these days. If you're not a triple threat you're nothing in Hollywood (wait, isn't this a Broadway 'thing'?). Anyhow, she just launched her new lifestyle page called and supposedly (according to bunch of internet sites I accidentally saw) it's a Goop-like site (apparently a lifestyle page brought to you by Gwyneth Palthrow), just darker. Translation: it has a black background and Goop has white. Big difference, right?
So, in order to promote her newly launched page, she did a video, where a person behind camera asks her 73 quick questions. I liked the questions, so I thought, why not do them as well.
Good idea, but I'm camera-shy, so I'm gonna do them here... Just so you can get to know me better.

Now, I'm going to bed, because I'm slowly dying from sleep deprivation that I subject myself to. Better start looking out for myself better. Maybe will help me with that...

Book of the Month (TBT - June): JANE EYRE

Of all the books I have ever read (and I have read a lot of them) there is one I like more than others. It's a book that got me trough some though times. The book I'm talking about is labeled as a "classic". I'm a female, so you're probably thinking: "It's Jane Austen. It's always Jane Austen." Well, you'd be wrong. It's still a female author and with familiar topics of writing. And the title also has a Jane in it.
Yey, if you're thinking that the book I'm talking about is Jane Eyre, congratulations are in the order - you were thinking right.SONY DSC
Jane Eyre made my day when I was going through a tough time when I was about eleven or twelve. All of the sudden I felt like I was missing out on life. Everyone knew everything that was going on. I felt lost, and this might sound cliche, but I got a feeling everyone around me knew what they were doing except for me. I had no idea what to do. I've read a lot of books before, but when you're twelve, all of the sudden you realize that books on children and young adults section aren't as interesting as they once were.
I discovered Jane Eyre by accident. I was looking at the books in the library and there was this lovely blue book in soft print. I thought, "Hey, this book looks good and I heard it's supposed to be great." What was the turning point was the fact it was in soft print. All those years ago, it was rare for a book to be in a soft print. And I always choose the longest books. I believe I already had ten other books, so one in soft print wouldn't do much of the difference in the weight I had to carry home (it's a twenty minute walk from the library to my home).
I took my time before reading it. But when I did, I feel right into it. I left the 21st century and traveled back in time on this amazing journey with an orphan from Longwood. Jane Eyre was brave, though and intelligent. She was all I wanted to be and at the time, this book gave me courage to be who I am. To be brave enough to fight for what I want (and it wasn't to party) and stand behind what I believe in. Because no matter what, I had it better that Jane, I had (and still have) a family that loves me, stand by me and supports me. And for a teenager, full of hormones and all about pushing its rights, it was a revelation of the century.
There are a lot of books out there that are labeled as "classics". To me, most of them are boring. Maybe it's because I'm a child of modern age, were everything needs to be filled with suspense and action. Things should always move, stories should always have something going on. Or maybe I just don't understand what all the fuss is about. I don't care if the book is labeled classic or a fan fiction or a biography. As long as it has an interesting story plot to follow and it's well written I'm all for it.

Quote of the Week

It's been a while, but here it is. Another quote from my collection.

I wish I could be this great of a person that Faulkner was (I conclude this way because of this great quote. Honestly, I don't know much about him...). But no, I'm just plain old me, that refuses to play board games, because she hates to lose so much!
Anyhow, I missed this, I'll do my best to post more frequently this summer.

Scatter Kindness - Wall Art

Scatter Kindness Vinyl Wall Decal Dandelion Flower with blowing Seeds sign lettering household words

Scatter Kindness Vinyl Wall Decal Dandelion Flower with blowing Seeds sign lettering household words (see more vinyl wall stickers)

Isn't it beautiful? After quite some time I've visited my page on Polyvore and this is one of the things I saw while I was making my last set. I absolutely love it!!! I don't even know what's so special abut it, but I absolutely love it! It was sold on Etsy, but it's sold out right now. There's a link under the pic, you can check, there are more (just different dimensions) and all of them are absolutely lovely!

And Summer Has Officially Began!!!

Can you believe it? The final's month is FINALLY over and right now I'm having my hard earned holidays! Well, you can hardly call it holidays, since I'm constantly bombarded with demands from my relatives like: Do this... Make sure this is done... Take care of this...
And it never stops! They want me to pick up kids from daycare, to entertain them while they are having a break - which seems like all the time! Sure I like kids, but right now, I can't even look at a picture of one without remembering about how loud and dirty and demanding they are. If someone asked me if I want to have kids, right now, I'd say no. It's not that I'm not capable of taking care of them, I just don't fell like all the extra work that comes with them. Sure if they come I'll be grateful and will love them with all my heart, but I'm not planning on having one for the next ten years... Besides, I'm still young, there's absolutely no need to hurry.
About my finals, so far I know I passed 7 out of 13 exams, I'm still waiting the results on one, and have a total of five to do in the fall. So yeah, these holidays I'll definitely need to study if I want to pass this year. And I do, I have no intention of going through this year all over again! So, wish me luck, and pray that I'll have enough strength and motivation to study, so I'll pass those stupid exams!

Now to more happy news. I decided to do something, besides watch TV shows and work this summer. Not that I already got a job, but I'll probably do some waitressing in one of the nearby caffes. Or something like that. But that's not relevant. What matters is I'll probably open an Etsy shop and start selling handmade traditional Idrian lace. I've learned how to make a lace in seventh grade in the past few years I've seriously considered the option of making lace jewellery and accessories. Maybe one day I'll be good enough to make lace shoes, like the one's Ben Affleck wore on one of the premiers (I think in Venice... Holy guacamoly, that rhymes!)
Let me know, what do you think of my idea (the one of opening an Etsy shop). I really don't want to go through all the hard work the process of making a lace requires for nothing. Because here's an example: To make that small patch of lace you see on these shoes I'd need about five to eight hours to make. Depends on how good my mood is at the moment.
Anyhow (how much I loooove, this word!), I have to get back to my vacation a.k.a. work camp my relatives created. 
God, I missed this. I promise I'll do my best and start writing again (and do all my usual posts about TV, movies and books. Three of my favourite things - if you forget about shopping and food)

Wish Me Luck...

...Because I'm gonna need it!
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...)
And today my one month nightmare starts with an exam on Sociological Psychology. Which I learnt from flashcards. And yes, it was possible, because the professor has this weird thing going on in this exams. It's a Yes or No type of thing. He gives a statement and it's either wrong or it's right. All nice all well but the trick is that if your answer is wrong you get minus one point (if it's correct you get 1 point and if you don't answer at all you don't get a point). So, if you're one unlucky SOB, then you can get a final result of minus 40 points. Fun, ha?
Lucy Jane

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 ;)

Quote of the Week

And I see a fun way to mess my friends hair =)
But seriously, what I really wish for is that all that my wishes would come true.
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!

I Got My First Kiss!!!!

Before you jump to conclusion and imagine me like a modern day Drew Barrymore in Never Been Kissed, I'm really sorry to disappoint you. I've been kissed before, even though it would certainly be fun to go out in a search for the first and perfect kiss.
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
But truth be told, I could buy them I just didn't feel like eating chocolate (but I did feel like eating Capitan Crunch and Willie Wonka sweets) and when I came back home and saw them in the store, I thought they were quite expensive for the amount you get. So when I saw them in the store with 50% off, I was the happiest girl in the store!
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

The Awkward Obsession

Before you get all worried and run away from reading this blog, I don't have an awkward obsession, I have an Awkward obsession. Still don't get it?
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?

Can't Wait For What The Fall 2014 Brings On TV

So this week the TV networks were kind enough to enlighten the humble TV viewers with their decisions about which TV shows will be renewed and which cancelled and which are coming to the TV.
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.
I checked all the trailers and storylines and I liked this one the best.
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.

Even if I am a little bit crazy and most of the time don't fit in, the good old Aristotle knew about people like me. That's right, I have a great mind. Crazy, yes, but also GREAT!!!
Forever great,

Hope you enjoyed the pictures ;) I'm not guaranteeing you that the guys on the pictures are hockey players, but they are HOT!!!

One Night Love Affair

So, here I am again. Suzy (a.k.a. my laptop) is currently hibernating, because of excessive use of SPSS (that's a statistics program). Because, if you haven't figured out yet, I'm a psychology student and this year most of my studies centers on statistics. So thank you whoever created SPSS, I'd die if I'd have to manually calculate all the things we have to do. If you ever had to do something statistical, than you know, it's (mildly put) a pain in the as*.
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 ;)

Quote of the Week

After scrolling past my previous posts, I came across this picture and quote. It's from a book called The Perks Of Being  A Wallflower, which I really liked. This quote however captures how I feel when everything falls into place as perfectly as one can imagine - infinite.

"Man, that girl is CRAZY!!!" - Confessions of Gossip Girl Addict, part 3

Besides the fact, that I (almost) never keep a promise I make on the internet (so yes, this doesn't really counts as a confession, since, let's face it, it's really clear to everyone who has ever read anything on my blog!) there's a few things I thought should make the cut for the part three of Confessions of Gossip Girl Addict thingy I have going on here.
First of all, I didn't really plan on this to go on so long, but this has became my safety net for not going completely bananas for not telling everyone about the latest crazy thing that I did.
Second, I think it's safe to say, I'm a pretty crazy person. I do prefer the term special though, so please, if you're planning on judging me and saying: "Man, that girl is crazy!" please consider replacing the c-word with s-word, and yes I mean SPECIAL!
About my confessions, so you know these people that have way to much on their hands? And they don't know what to do with it, so they go and do something? Anything really? I'm not one of those people. When I'm bored and don't know what to do, I just find somebody, anybody really and start complaining. About anything and everything. Somehow, when everything else fails, complaining never, ever get's old. I absolutely LOVE IT!!!
One down, two more to go. The second one is no real surprise, but I kind of figured out my life is so pathetic, that I spend so much time in front of TV I kind of already seen all the good TV shows international television has to offer. So when I saw some news about Ariana Grande I realized, she was/is on a TV show. So I said to myself: "What the heck Lucy, why not go and check out that Victorious show she was on." And I did. And absolutely fell for it. I know, my life must be so pathetic, but you must admit it, didn't you ever want to go to a high school like that? I'd love to go to a high school like that. This way of thinking resulted in me seeing the entire four seasons in two days... Well, what can I say? I'm nothing if not?!?! SPECIAL!

And the last, but not the least, Wattpad. You might know what it is, but for those who don't, it's a online community of writers and readers. You can publish a book and people can read it for free, they can comment, vote and stuff like that. It also has an app, that got me into trouble. The thing is, I just joined Wattpad like a week ago, and since then I hadn't had a decent night sleep yet. Because I always end up reading these amazing books in the evening and they have me sucked in so much that I can't stop reading until the end of the book. And after that I have to play Candy Crush, because two and a half hours has passed and my lifes are full again. Speaking of which, I'm gonna go now, and get to this next level even if it's the last thing I do before I (finally) go to sleep. Because where I am right now, it's 1.30 in the morning. Oh, the price of becoming obsessed with Wattpad....

Forever yours, special and even a slightly, tiny, little bit (OK a lot) crazy,

Quote of the Week and I Give you a Hint: It's gonna be LEGEN...wait for it...

I missed the How I Met Your Mother season finally a.k.a. How To Piss Off Every HIMYM Fan a.k.a How To Throw Away Ten Years Of Good Television. Technically, I did see the show on time, I'm just kind of late to blog about it. Instead I'm gonna post one of my favorite quotes in HIMYM history. And yes, of course it was Barney Stinson who said it! Because he's LEGEN.....wait for it and I hope you're not lactose intolerant, because the other half of the word is.....DAIRY.

This is my current favorite quote. Mostly because I'm still kind of bitter after realizing my Facebook page consists out of engagement photos, happy couple: I love you baby posts and Cosmopolitan's advises on how to get a boyfriend and get married. No wonder I love this two sentences!

Ladies and Gentleman, She is BACK!!!

It's been almost two months to the day since I posed something. I could lie and say, I've been busy but this wasn't the case. In fact I'm kind of in middle of a crisis. I have no idea what I want (other than not live in this amazing house I found in the Hamptons. It only costs 5 million dollars - which is like three and a half million euros. It has eight rooms, nine bathrooms, a view to the beach, a private beach with a shed and private pier. To top that off it also has a heated pool and a legally built guest house with two more bedrooms and bathrooms, a pole room and what looks like a home fitness. Too bad it doesn't has a tennis court. No wonder it only costs 5, not 45 millions dollars ;) ) or what I'm doing with my life. So I kind of put my life on hold and (probably out of laziness and mild case of depression) stopped writing all together.
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 =)
Well, maybe I'm exaggerating a bit, but I have confirmed that they were watching me and I felt worse than when I had to preform in front of two hundred people. Seriously, this is this one humiliating moment of my life I wish would happen. That and this one time I was so drunk I kind of screamed to a very hot guy, I know and his friends that I also know, he's really hot. No problem there though, since he doesn't know me and was kind of hammered and probably doesn't even remember. At least I had a good music as a background. My friend got Justin Bieber's If I was Your Boyfriend. Not that I have anything against him, I don't even know the guy, it's just his music is so catchy. It was stuck in my head for the entire evening: If I was your boyfriend I'd never let you go... The good thing is, I did get a 10 (that's like an A+) for my ice skating knowledge. Hooray for me!!!

A Turn To The Crazy

There's a lot of talk about this "new" movie called That Awkward Moment. And I know that because last week I was playing with Google Chrome settings and it offered me to set up an alert for something. The precious and really needed automatic Google suggestions (because let's face it, we're part of the lazy generation, too lazy to type our information into required fields. And why would we, when we have Google auto-fill option?) suggested I set my name as an trigger for the alert, but let's face it, except for what I write about myself, no one will use my full name. It's not like I'm the president or a hot shot movie star or an athlete. And trust me when I say it's a gift you can't hear me sing while reading this. You'd probably run screaming from the computer and never ever turn it back on (BTW, I'm exaggerating to make a point. I'm not that bad, I was in a quire for about five years. But I never really got any important solos if I even got any (obviously my memory isn't what it used to be). So instead of my name I decided to make an alert for a phrase "that awkward moment". I can't wait to see the movie (I've been busy) and it was the first thing that popped into my mind and I knew it would get quite some hits. And I was right.
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).
The alert thing works perfectly. You get an email notice every time someone writes about the required frase on the internet (or once a day/week or something like that). What meant to be an experiment to see how this alert thing works turned out to be quite amusing, but in a strange way.
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).

Quote of the Week

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.

Movie of the Month: Magic Mike

I've gave this month's choice a lot of thought. At first I was thinking of going for the obvious choice - Valentine's Day, since this is what February is all about. I mean you spend the first fourteen days expecting/dreading the day, and the next fourteen telling everyone about how amazing/awful it was. But since I'm single and kind of not in the mood for any cheesy romance movie (that's not true, I love cheesy movies, as long as they have a happy ending) I decided to go with the less obvious choice. I proclaim this month's "Movie of the Month" to be Magic Mike!
I mean  single or not single, there's not a woman in their right mind that didn't want to see this movie. And I'm not gonna play stupid and pretend it was for the exceptional story line or acting (I have no qualification in judging if someone is a good actor or not, but I've see more than enough movies to know if a movie has a weak storyline, but trust me when I say, it doesn't really matter). But I will say that 2012 was the first year in history of film, that all the man were running to the cinema to watch a movie about a teddy bear (=Ted) and all the women went to see a movie about strippers. This was a huge year for the human kind. So many things has changed!
As far as the story goes, this clip shows you all you need to know. And I can sum it up in one sentence: There's a bunch of real hot male strippers. And that's all it really matters.
The movie includes some of the finest Hollywood hotties, including Channing Tatum, Matt Damon, Matthew McConaughey and Alex Pettyfer. They are all sporting some serious abs and great dancing (read: stripping) skills.


If you're a female looking for a fun movie, Magic Mike is the one. If you're a male, looking for a movie your lady will definitely love, Magic Mike is the one. If you're a lonely soul looking for something to cheer you up on Valentine's Day, Magic Mike is the one!
Basically, the story line might be weak, but the video below gives you all the reasons you need to decide to watch this movie.

Also Channing Tatum, the moving force behind this movie, confirmed, he's writing the script for the second part. And in the name of all red blooded females, we're thanking you, for listening to our united verdict, that this movie should last at least another hour, so.

Quote of the Week

Another week has passed and it's time for my weekly update in my Quote of the Week rubric. This week, I had another one of my existential crises which lead me to spending unimaginable amount of time looking at old pictures I have on my computes. This is when I stumbled at this quote by Pablo Picasso. It somehow spoke to me, and I decided to share it with you guys!

Movie of the Month: Heart of the Country

Hey! I know I'm five days late, but I kind of ran out of time. The thing is I saw and decided on a movie, but didn't have the time to write about it. I got caught up in studying and today is the first day since the last post (Quotes of the Week don't count, I only need about five minutes to snap a photo and write three sentences next to it.) I was able to find the time for writing this. The point I'm trying to make is, better late, than never right?

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.


The 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).


Jana Kramer, who portrayed the main female role, Faith, is known for her role of Alex Dupre, a character from a TV series One Tree Hill. She's also a country music singer with an album titled Jana Kramer. Her singing received many positive reviews from the critics and praises for her vocal performances. Her songs are also part of the movie.

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. 


The movie is sweet and I liked it, but the ending is kind of sad (as I said before I cried) and not at the same time. It was the type of ending for which the phrase "sweet and sour" was invented. Anyhow, the thing I like the most about the movie was the music, especially this one song called Weeds and Wild Flowers, performed by Jane Kramer. I've been looking all over for it (my latest info tells me it'll probably be on Jane Kramer next CD which will be released this year) and I can't find a decent recording of it. So instead I'm keep replaying the end of the movie. My final decision is, this is a movie worth your 89 minutes and 13 seconds.

Quote of the Week

Another week has past, which means it's quote of the week time!
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,

It's All About: Which Movie Character Are You

I don't know if you remember, but a few years ago (I think it was around 2009) there was this really popular thing you could do on Facebook. You could make and solve all sorts of quizzes. And when I saw a post made by one of my friends, I got this weird déjà-vu feeling, like it was 2009 all over again. Partly out of curiosity, partly because I love quizzes of any type, I clicked on the link and got to a site where you solved a quiz and they would tell you which character from certain movie or TV series you are. There was a Hunger Games, Harry Potter, Mean Girls and few more.
I study psychology and on one of the first classes I was told those quizzes are bulls**t. I mean the quiz you take in Cosmo which is telling you're into guy with brown hair or something equally weird to predict is about as accurate as me telling you your faith from palm reading (I have absolutely no psychic powers, so I would probably just say you'll meet a men. Or maybe a woman, it's harder this days then it was hundred years ago, when you couldn't miss what a woman wanted to hear by telling her she'll meet a men. I'd be so bad at being a psychic I probably wouldn't be able to get the same person into my psychic office for a séance more than once. Or get them to recommend me to their friends.). But I still love to take them and then make fun of them. I mean I took the Mean Girls quiz and was informed I'm Regina, the main bitch in the movie. Which is kind of cool, since she is hilarious and I did like her character in a movie. But I'm a nice person, I was never a real queen bee in High School and I most definitely wouldn't cheat on that Aaron guy. He was way hotter than the other one.

Anyhow, this wasn't the only surprise that quizzes had in store for me today. When I took the Which Hunger Games Character Are You? I got Peeta. I mean seriously? Peeta? Not my favorite character and I can't find one thing we have in common. I mean the only good thing about him is he's physically strong. Which I'm not. I have problems with carrying anything that weights more than 3kg for more than 30 seconds. But I did get a feeling I'm a lot smarter than him. I mean how blind do you have to be to not realize Katniss is pulling an act just so she could get some food? Writing all that down sounds even more weird that it did in my head. Hope you won't misunderstood me, I liked the movie, but when a movie with a title Hunger Games doesn't have a character that looks at least a little bit hungry. However I do understand why was Jenifer Lawrence against losing weight and looking real hungry. She understands that Katniss will become a role model for a lot of young girls who are unable to understand, that she looks so skinny because she has nothing to eat. Oh, and  all the respect to Josh Hutchersen, because he somehow managed to make his character likeable. I read the books and Peeta looks like a real pussy. He never really does anything. I mean he gives Katniss a burned old bread. But not in a nice way, he throws it to her, like it's trash. In a book/movie, where hunger is the main issue they seem to be real careless about food.

But the biggest surprise of the day was which character I am in Harry Potter. You'll never guess, probably because you'll never get the idea that this character is even an option. Before I tell you the shocking news, let me just say I'm a huge fan of Harry Potter and when I was reading the books and watched the movies I always imagined myself as Ginny. Remember, this was before Ginny and Harry were an item. Way before. I fell in love with that character in the first book, even though she was barely mentioned. And when I read the second one, the one where her role is much more significant I was determent I want to be her. If I'd have a chance to audition for a part in a movie I'd want to be her. The only problem is I'm not really a ginger, but hair color can fix that. Well, if the hair were the only important thing to get a role, I'd probably get Hermione, since they were so curly my mother had to brush them for more than an hour just to get me look like a normal person, not someone who just woke up. They are straight now, thanks to this wonderful thing called straightening iron and huge amounts of conditioner.
 Oh, and what character do you think I got. Well if you figured it out without peeking at the photo, than congratulations are in order. According to this quiz I'm The One Who Must Not Be Named (a.k.a. Tom Riddle a.k.a. Lord Voldemort). Told you, you wouldn't think of that one! Well it's probably my fault I got this, since I clicked on Evil when there was a choice between Good and Evil. 

But evil is what makes the story so compelling, isn't it?
