And the Oscar goes to...


What better way for the soul to escape into a world of infinite possibilities? A world where none of the rational world's rules applies, where no right and wrong orchestrated movement and thought but merely the feelings of the actor themselves.

I've always loved watching movies. Growing up with a father who was absolutely fascinated by them and by the whole industry, I didn't really have a choice. I never really felt like my love for the field was anything out of the ordinary, inside our family frame it never really was.

When I was about 13 or 14 years old, I started noticing my love for a lot of things that I had previously considered as unimportant or not really worth considering for a career. I found out that I was absolutely in love with acting.

I had never really payed attention before to that fact that the one thing I always focused on while watching a movie was the actors' performances. I had never noted that that detail sometimes interested me more than the plot itself.

I decided that I was going to pay my best effort to make it possible for me to become an actress someday. Of course, when you think actress, you think Hollywood, and when you think Hollywood you think English. I was already pretty good at the language, but when it came to "performing" the language, I always thought there was something more I could do.

Thus, from reading Roald Dahl novels while paying attention to altering my voice to suit the various characters, and trying as well as I could to picture how the situation would be, and from standing in front of the mirror, practicing facial expressions for hours at a time, my dream travels on to places far more appealing and fascinating then my bedroom and bathroom.

And as time passed, I have also discovered a love and a skill in writing, hence, my dream of someday standing on a high budget movie set develops into being there not just as an actress but as a writer and director.

Until next time, and may all your dreams come true.

It's been so long...

It's been so long since I last posted a blog! I looked at the date of my last entry and it dates back to October 16! I have to admit that nothing much has happened with me in the past month but it feels good to be back!

School is as good as it ever was and ever can be. Many things I'm not too proud of have happened in that department...I'm not talking bad grades nor conflicts with unnerving teachers, but rather foolish behavior with younger guys. All has been taken care of now, there's no need to worry :P

I started wondering, as a result to every uncomfortable experience I had recently, whether wonderful, extremely lucky days, were a bad omen to worse ones to come.

Here's what I mean.

Last Thursday was the best day of my life. My history teacher gave me six grades bonus on my exam for a research I did, the exam I had that day went great, my best friend greeted me with amazing news about her and the guy we both believe is "The One", I had the BEST period of P.E. which rarely ever happens and above all the "group date" I had been planning to invite the guy I liked to, seemed a sure matter. I was feeling on top of the world!

Here comes the horror...

Friday is here...It's the first rainy school day, my geography test went horrible, the guy I invited said he couldn't come, it didn't rain all day but the second my friends and I stepped out of the school building and into the street it poured rain! To top that...I had a conversation with that guy after returning home and it made me seem like I was chasing after him!!

What to do? What to do?

My only solution seemed to change my status on facebook to "in a relationship" so that he thinks I actually was...I got 53 comments and everyone at my school thinking that I was in this wonderful romance...

That one went rather well, right?

I was still extremely depressed on Saturday and couldn't sing during my class...

It all got better on Tuesday though! My friend gave me more wonderful news and I was smiling uncontrollably for a whole day, I decided that I was going to buy myself a blackberry for Christmas and that I wouldn't care about childish people ever again!

I've returned to correcting my book too after stopping for a while and I'm almost done now! YAY! I can't wait to start on the second one!

It's really good to be back!

Until next time...
