I love Japanese!

  I’ve been studying Japanese for a while now, with shorter or longer breaks in between, and I love it.  I’m in love with the language since I was 11, when I heard my karate teacher counting for us for the first time.  Then I took the major in university along with English.  Well, to…

In love…

Look at these colors…I’m in love with the colors, their shades and how they mix and fade into each other… I could stare at them forever… The more I concentrate and lose myself into the Autumn vegetation, the more I’m prone to think this is my favorite season ever.  It might simply be that my…

NaNo…nope…

I’ve been in doubt for a while this year.  I really wanted to do it again, and challenge myself with something that might help my writing on several levels.  I joined the Dublin chapter for a couple of years a while ago and I really enjoyed it, although I could attend only a couple of…

Thanks, my dear readers!

I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw it! 500 followers! Thanks a lot to each and every one of you for reading me and following my blog! It means a lot to me! Thank you!

Let’s try again!

  I love writing, but because of my lack of time, I’m often forced to long or longer breaks. On the other hand, I’ve published posts on this blog for over 30 days in row now. This makes me hope for a brighter future! Lately, I’ve found myself to go through my drafts and notes…

I love post-apocalyptic settings because…

  Lately I’ve found myself particularly attracted to post-apocalyptic settings-books, anime, manga, films, it doesn’t matter! The aim of this blog is to understand better myself and the reason behind this obsession. It’s even hard for me to understand when it all started… it might be this passion began not so “lately” but before that!…

How I’m doing – mid-September  

On the previous version of this blog, I used to give monthly updates on my writing, reading and researching. Since I’ve always struggled a lot with my spare times, the posts turned out to be a filler in lack of something juicier. This is why I’ve decided that for this brand-new version I won’t put…

Finished again!

A few weeks ago I told you I started The Hunger Games trilogy again. Today I’ve finished it and, as usual, it left me in that sad book hangover full of emptiness. Since I don’t feel good for a different reason anyway, the feeling has been amplified a bit. And that’s it. This is what…

Ideas and spare time.

Although I’ve made a long list of what to do during my week of sick leave, I decided to give the priority to my relax and recovery.  Since I had all the three full series in my ‘on demand’, I’ve started to watch Broadchurch. I want to write a review that’d give this masterpiece justice,…

Homework.

  Last night I was about to read the bedtime story with Maya, when I thought to check her homework (she usually does them with the crèche teacher, no worries, I wouldn’t leave her alone!).  She’s in a new class this year, with a new teacher and I was curious to see her style.  Upon…
