Another start of a school year.

tumblr_l81vwdt6S01qbcaemo1_500
Hello dear reader,
How are you this fine Monday?
For me, first day of school was great, this being the last year of high school we only stayed for five minutes until our class headmaster told us what classes we have tomorrow and then we left because he didn’t have to introduce us to anything, we pretty much know the drill. After that I went with some mates and had a tea and told stories of what happened this summer and it was all good.
Tomorrow I start a new language, which is German. I am pretty scared because it is a really hard to learn language and I only know to say I love you and know to count up to three. Hehe.
What else? Oh, I have a new class mate, she is from another part of the country and she is rather weird. I mean, when you are new and don’t know anyone you don’t just sit in a corner and don’t speak. Usually, you introduce yourself and try to make friends. Right? Well she didn’t…. so our headmaster saw that and told us to make her feel welcome, no problem, but when we went to her and I extended my hand and said “Nice to meet you” and introduced myself and she got scared of me…it was rather odd…and she still didn’t say what her name was…
Anyway, besides that, the day was good…I am so tired right now that I think I will have a nap… I am slowly transitioning from going to bed really really late to going to bed relatively early…and as you might know, it is awful!
Let me know how you started your school year, or what is your favorite memory from high school.
Keep safe until next time,
Lexi xoxo

Growing up is scary !!!

Hey there, how have you guys been?

This past month and the beginning of this one I have been very preoccupied with looking for Universities, sending emails requesting information, getting involved in volunteering projects.

Lately, my anxiety issues have been playing off, I am telling you this because I was feeling very anxious after sending like ten emails. Obviously, I am aware that if you send an email at 8 PM on a Friday no one will respond to you, however I was feeling anxious because I was thinking that I won’t be getting any responses at all…

I can’t even explain to you how afraid I am that I won’t be accepted in the University I want. To get there, I have to do a lot of things. I am starting early, so I can be sure! England puts a lot of accent on voluntary work, so I am starting mine on Monday. I will be going to paint walls at a kindergarten. I hope I will get photos so I can show you all my handy work.

This is all for now. My little, short ramble… I just had to tell someone this so I could get it off my chest and maybe feel a little better about myself.

Do you ever feel anxious? If so, what makes it trigger?

Until next time, take care,

Lexi xoxoxoxo!

Amazing friends!!!

IMG_5394

Dear reader,

The goodness of people never ceases to amaze me. Yes, once again I have been gifted with something pretty amazing that I cannot thank enough for! And I can once again say that I have the best friends in the world.

When I finished high school a really good friend of mine, that I pretty much consider family, felt an inexplicable urge to send me a humongous gift card. What she sent me was overwhelming and unthinkable, and I cannot say I wasn’t surprised by it because I would be lying.

With that gift card I got the next 3 Harry Potter books I needed, now I need only two more and I have them all, yaaaayyyy. I am sooooo happy with the decision I made!!! It honestly is the best edition of Harry Potter that exists. I got books 3 to 5 and they are absolutely gorgeous.

IMG_5384   IMG_5386   IMG_5390

See what I’m talking about? They are absolutely marvelous, and I cannot wait to start reading them. (I am already half way through Harry Potter and the Prizoner of Azkaban and I can already say that it is better than the first two.)

I cannot thank Carol enough for her kindness. She is truly a one of a kind friend and I don’t know what I would do without her amazing advice or her great knowledge of the world. If I had to stick to three friends for the rest of my life, she would definitely be one of them!

Until next time, take care,
Lexi xoxoxo!!

 

 

Songs that ruined me!

Hey there dear reader,

Today I have another very unplanned blog post, that I have never even thought of writing until now.The idea of writing this post, came to me just today when I was listening to the first song on the list and couldn’t stop hitting repeat.

And for all of our benefits today’s discussion is on a much brighter note than the previous one. Hope you enjoy :)!

1. Jenny Lewis – Just One Of The Guys

I am going to be honest and admit that I first listened to this song because I saw that Kristen Stewart and Anne Hathaway are in the music video. But after watching it a couple of times, I realized that I couldn’t stop listening to it. I do not relate to the lyrics in no kind of way but the rhythm and beat are what stayed with me. It is a very, very catchy song.

2. LORDE – Everybody Wants To Rule The World

This song is another one that when I listen to I keep hitting repeat a lot of times. These lyrics are a bit more relatable than the previous one. I really love the rhythm and  also feeling this one gives me when I play it.

3. Despicable Me Theme Song – Pharrell Williams

This is the funnest song in this top three list. I just stumbled upon it one day and since then I cannot stop listening to it. It is really fun, and I just loooove the way Pharrell sings.

What are your favorite songs that you can’t stop playing over and over again? I would love to hear what you have on your replay lists.

Until next time, stay safe,

Lexi xoxo!

 

Open Air Cinema ! Yay but nay…

Caravana-TIFF_Timisoara

 

Hello there,

This is another one of those very random posts, that I did not plan to write but this topic just needs to be discussed. Also I am sorry for any immature rambles, whines and childish ideas, but this situation just happened and I decided that there is no better way to get rid of my anger than write about it.

On the 24th of July, an Open Air Cinema is going to come to the city next to me. The movie that I want to go to is called Inside Llewyn Davis. The film stars Oscar Isaac, Carey Mulligan, Justin Timberlake, and John Goodman.

Okay, so far so good. The idea of an Open Air Cinema being 20 minutes away from me blew my mind out. The premise of the movie and the cast is also amazing, and it seems that the movie has a lot of potential. [The picture presents the event from a previous edition].

Though I have never been to such an event, I am very excited about the idea of going, however there is always something that tends to destroy your plans.

My mother decided that if I go with a group of people won’t be safe enough. God!! I hate it when she treats me as if I were 10! It’s not like we won’t manage! I even told her that a friend’s mother will be with us, but she said that no, only if they bring me in front of our house when we arrive. Jesus!!! I understand that parents have to be all cuddly and not let you do stupid stuff, but this is not stupid nor dangerous *sigh*.

I cannot express my anger enough! I am willing to gather a rather large group of people, so we can all enjoy this once a year opportunity and feel more safe than one would by themselves.

Of course, my mom is right on a certain level, but I cannot understand why she won’t even listen to my options.

As a picture-goer this is an opportunity that I don’t get everyday. This festival is at it’s fourth event and it is sadly taking place only once a year. It looks like so much fun and a great way to relax and expand your cultural views.

Sadly, it is very likely that I will not be able to attend this event. If I could convince one of my parents to go with me it would be a piece of cake, but apparently they are busy. It seems that this time, the odds are not in my favor…

Stay safe, until next time,

Lexi xoxox!

 

Summer On My Mind

tumblr_m32ppuFvZv1rua9q5o1_5001

Hey there,

I had in mind to write a post about summer but I don’t quite know what, so  I decided to share my summer plans with you. This summer I decided to do a lot of things for myself. I decided to read a lot, to watch a lot of TV shows and to draw a bunch!

Obviously, I will never get to do everything that I want, but on a small part I will manage to accomplish all of my selfish little needs.

My godmother insisted to visit her this summer, but I decided that this being my last summer at home totally free, it won’t work because I want to do what I want, not what others want. And I want FUN! I want to spend my time with my family, to catch up on reading and TV shows that I missed during the school year, all kinds of cool stuff. At least, that is what I think it is cool…

So far, my plans have been going good, the cause of this happening is that the weather is really sh***y so I cannot do anything else other than staying inside. So, since the summer holidays have started, I’ve read 5 and a half books, LOL; have caught up on the shows: Castle and The 100, and I am currently working on The Big Bang Theory; also I have been drawing some bits and pieces.

Drawing seems to be my weak spot. I definitely have to focus a bit more on that seeing that I have to finish a project very soon…can’t show or tell you what yet, but you will see, all in good time 🙂 .

Since summer started I have been iPad-less, which means that I don’t really have time or feel like writing many blog posts, which has also been one of my summer goals. However, tomorrow or on Monday, I will get it back and I will catch up on writing all of my book reviews and other fun blog posts.

So far, this blog post has been all about me. If you have gotten this far, please tell me down below in the comments, what do you want to do this summer? Do you have any goals? Will you have a fun summer filled with adventures, or will you stay at home and read, just like I have been doing? I would sure love to see your little stories 🙂 .

Love you all, stay safe until the next ramble.

Hugs and kisses,

Lexi xoxo!

What’s been going on?

Hello everyone,

How have you all been? It feels like years since I’ve done a blog post. Last month was hectic for me. I just finished another year of high school and I had to get ready for the big final tests and what not, so that didn’t really give me the free time to take care of my blog as well. But hey, I am here now, aren’t I?

Now that the summer vacation is here, I plan on reading more, drawing more and writing more. I will definitely be more active, now that summer is here. You can expect some very cool book and movie reviews, along with some stories about life in general and other little random rambles.

I hope that some people are still around and have stuck with me. Also, I hope I didn’t bore anyone to death with this post. I am sorry if you really do not care about where I have been, but I just wanted to update everyone.

If you are still here and hopefully have gotten this far into this post, PLEASE leave down a comment about what are you excited this summer. Is it a fun trip to somewhere? A reunion with your family and friends? Or probably just lazying around and catching up on your favorite TV shows…I know I am excited for that.

Stay tuned for a ton of fun posts this summer. 😀

Many hugs,

Lexi. xoxo

#100HappyDays- First 20 days!

100HappyDays

So I thought that after 20 days I should do a post about how things are going with the 100 Happy Days challenge.
After these 20 days I found out that my life is pretty lame, and also I have found out that I have a weird passion for birds. LOL!

Besides just posting the pictures I decided to add a little caption to them in order to explain why I took them and posted them for those particular days. The quality of some pictures is better than of others because some photos I took with my iPad, some with my camera.

Day#1 – In the first day I posted a picture of a really pretty sunset. It was one of the first and most beautiful that I have seen this spring.

10314762_10203567885659225_6342670694941687009_n

Day#2 – For the second day I decided to post a gift I got that day that made me super happy! I got a wireless keyboard that I can use with my iPad.10262234_10203567885619224_7642503587102899505_n

Day#3 – In this third day I took a picture of the sweets I got for Easter. I was already at an impasse so these were the only things I could think of that made me happy that day.

1511011_10203567885539222_7187595340501853873_n

Day#4 – Day 4, came with a struggle again, but once I gave it a little thought and looked around a bit I noticed my lovely pets. Yes, I have two turtles that I love to bits!!

10169311_10203567885699226_8602538164759232129_n

Day#5 – During day 5 I took a walk and saw this pretty cherry tree and I did a little collage of its cute little white flowers.

1911634_10203567886219239_3238360063468473762_n

Day#6 – On day six I found myself tinkering in my “Wreck It Journal” and I thought that I am truly relaxed and happy when I work in it.

10314711_10203567886179238_562171195846481003_n

Day#7 – On the seventh day I saw the chick that came out of the eggshell in the cherry tree in front of our apartment building and it was soooo cute that I just had to take a picture of it.

1902908_10203567888619299_9139109044457245667_n

Day#8 – The eight-day was a real struggle seeing that nothing made me happy that day besides the book I was reading. [ugh, the picture is sooooo orange, but I can’t change anything now]

10177992_10203567888539297_6343224181691253329_n

Day#9 – On the ninth day I posted a picture of me last year in May. But I do not like the idea of sharing my face on an open blog. (Just so you know that I’m not a hypocrite, I am telling you now that my Instagram is private,therefore more secure)

Day#10 – On the tenth day I was shuffling through old baby photos and I found a really cute one where I looked very happy. Again, not feeling that it is okay to share this.

Day#11 – I was coming home from my uncles’ place and I saw this little tree that had the prettiest lighting ever. (I guess I tried to be more artsy than anything)

10151164_10203567892259390_6252194101343409322_n

Day#12 – The picture for day twelfth came as a surprise to me. I went outside and fed the pigeons that were chilling on the ground. Fortunately I managed to catch one flying. The picture is rather blurry, but what do you expect from a flying pigeon? 10264850_10203567891659375_4186963415738817760_n

Day#13 – Day 13 really sucked and I used a photo of a pretty sunset from the previous day.

10264655_10203567891699376_3393844174531233732_n

Day#14 – After the day before I was still pretty bummed and I took out a drawing that I’m working on for some time and added some stuff to it. 1797449_10203567891779378_3255229232577477780_n

Day#15 – On the fifteenth day I bought “The Da Vinci Code” DVD and I picked up the book to finish it so I could watch the movie :D. 10171286_10203567891819379_3691875805223697630_n

Day#16 – Day 16 was rather boring but these neat snacks made me pretty freaking happy .1912509_10203567892299391_7888510706313519244_n

Day#17 – Someone picked on me for reading so much and I posted a book related quote that always makes me happy when I read it.10157193_10203567893699426_9035128100500242178_n

Day#18 – The mother of the chick in the nest comes daily on our window sill and we give it breadcrumbs. Anyway I wanted to capture the moment. And also, I love how unfazed and relaxed it is around people. 1452122_10203567893739427_5313954240803855135_n

Day#19 – On the nineteenth day I posted a picture of me and my best friend that always makes me happy even when she annoys me. Anyway, there is even more reason to not post this–because she is in it as well.

Day#20 – On the last day of this post- day 20 I was watching a new tv show called “Penny Dreadful” and even if it was gross and scary as hell, it made me happy that people are still creating good quality tv shows. 1549359_10203567939500571_7289248925904212232_nThat was it folks. The first twenty days of happiness. I knew it would be hard to keep up with but damn, it was excruciating some days, I really had to wreck my mind in order to find something that made me happy. I hate when I have to cheat, but I really don’t want to fail this challenge.

I am sorry if some of these disappoint you, and you wish I had more exciting and fun pictures, but even though I cheat, I still try to keep it real. LOL.

Thanks for reading and keep safe,
Lexi xxxxxx! 😀

#100HappyDays

100HappyDays

Today I found the most amazing thing ever! I found the 100 day challenge.

This project challenges you to take a picture everyday, for a hundred days in a row, with what makes you happy. I found this thought very challenging so I decided to give it a try.

Here you can access the site and start the challenge as well!

I will be posting my happy pictures starting from Friday,11th of April on my instagram that you are invited to follow. 😀 Although my thought was to post this only on instagram…once in maybe…2 weeks, or even earlier, I will gather the pictures from that time frame and will post them here on my blog as well.

Sorry for the short ramble but I really felt like sharing.

Have an extraordinary day! 🙂

Hugs,

Lexi xxxxx!

Amazing friends over the seas!!! -part 3- & a great day.

1926740_10203267982441832_661684275_n

Today. Today was a good day. And frankly, lately I didn’t have any reasons to say this, but today really was good!

After a long day of school I went with my best friend and took a walk down our dyke and went to the mall. And obviously I just had to stop at the bookshop there and decided to treat myself with a book that I wanted for so long that I can’t even remember when, The Fault in Our Stars.

After buying it I stayed with my friend and had a chat over a drink. Once we decided that it was time to leave, I went home and there was a package waiting for me.

Yes. Once again, I’ve been the honor to get a package from a dear friend. The amazing surprise consisted of two amazing books that I’ve also wanted for a long time, those being The Hunger Games: Catching Fire and The Selection.

I just want to thank Carol again for sending me these two books. I’m not sure that she actually knows how much this means to me! I appreciate this gesture so much that I cannot find words to express myself. So, thank you, for again making me feel so thankful and happy!

I wish I didn’t bore you with this post, but honestly, this was a very exciting day for me and I am so happy that this day turned out so well! How was your day? Did you enjoy it?

Until next time, probably with a book review,

Lexi xxxxxxxxxx! 🙂

P.S. Thank you again, Carol <3!

1549387_10203269850888542_860914460_n

Here are the summaries of these titles if any of you are interested [got them directly from Amazon].

The Fault in Our Stars by John Green

Despite the tumor-shrinking medical miracle that has bought her a few years, Hazel has never been anything but terminal, her final chapter inscribed upon diagnosis. But when a gorgeous plot twist named Augustus Waters suddenly appears at Cancer Kid Support Group, Hazel’s story is about to be completely rewritten.

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins 1380719_10203269851288552_917938342_n

Against all odds, Katniss Everdeen has won the annual Hunger Games with fellow district tribute Peeta Mellark. But it was a victory won by defiance of the Capitol and their harsh rules. Katniss and Peeta should be happy. After all, they have just won for themselves and their families a life of safety and plenty. But there are rumors of rebellion among the subjects, and Katniss and Peeta, to their horror, are the faces of that rebellion. The Capitol is angry. The Capitol wants revenge.

The Selection by Kiera Cass

1476390_10203269851488557_1820651320_n

For thirty-five girls, the Selection is the chance of a lifetime. The opportunity to escape the life laid out for them since birth. To be swept up in a world of glittering gowns and priceless jewels. To live in a palace and compete for the heart of gorgeous Prince Maxon.

But for America Singer, being Selected is a nightmare. It means turning her back on her secret love with Aspen, who is a caste below her. Leaving her home to enter a fierce competition for a crown she doesn’t want. Living in a palace that is constantly threatened by violent rebel attacks.

Then America meets Prince Maxon. Gradually, she starts to question all the plans she’s made for herself—and realizes that the life she’s always dreamed of may not compare to a future she never imagined.
