World of imagination

Have you ever wished that ones you close your eyes and open them again you find yourself somewhere else? Some other place that is better reality but as real as it?

Here’s The Solution!

It’s not some kind of spell, but it works let’s say 99% of the time.

Way #1 (the most efficient and easiest way, at least for me :D):

MUSIC. One word, 5 letters of magic. Ones I get into a situation that was so exhausting and it’s not over yet. I play music, I have the play list that includes all my favorite songs, but I have other playlists for reading, relaxing, working out or even meditation! They act like my painkillers actually ๐Ÿ˜€ Like after a long day or before I sleep or at the car, plane,train,bus. Sometimes it’s when I want to escape but in my place. That’s getting weird, isn’t it? Okay let me explain. Like now while writing this blog. I am sitting with my parents, they are watching the TV and I want to focus on my writing so I am playing jazz, with 88% volume in my headphones. Or play music and imagine what I would love to be doing right now instead of being here. Although I actually still keep an eye to the surroundings so I don’t look like a fool when I get called ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ˜€

Way #2

BOOKS, MOVIES, TV SHOWS. Those ones preferable to be at the night while everyone thinks you are either asleep or simply no one is there, so you can enjoy your world of imagination, also so you have nothing else to do and wake up to the real world of troubles :D. It’s usually better if you had some background soft music while reading or watch your movie or tv show with headphones or with volume that blocks the world for at least a moment and also try to keep checking the medium like ( god forbidden) maybe a thief is breaking into your house while you just there enjoying ๐Ÿ˜€

(Those ways I guess most of us do, but just take care always of the surroundings around you while playing the music or so on. God forbidden, if something happened you can notice and take action ๐Ÿ™‚)

Way #3

LEAVE HOME SWEET HOME. Well, if you can :D. Like most of the time I can’t leave the house because of transportation troubles or so on. But I try always to go out if I can and I know that this hangout will please me and make me happy. Like if I know that this going out might just not help or make me more upset I just skip it. Well, I get judged that I am depressing and so on by my family because I don’t usually leave the house, but honestly I tried to explain myself zillions of times until I just got tired and gave up anyway. My point is, people’s judgment can’t always be accurate so it’s only you and people who knows the real truths who can somehow judge. Just don’t listen to the negative vibes so much :D. Go to the amusement park, the museum the cinema. Those places which have a story to tell or make you live their story ๐Ÿ˜‰ :D.

Those are my main 3 ways anyway ๐Ÿ˜€ I have more but believe me that might take blogs and pages :D.

If you want more ways though, just let me know in the comment ๐Ÿ˜‰ :D.

If you also have ways comment them below for others to know ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ˜€

Different stories

One of the things that I sometimes think of is what kind of people or stories is out there in the world. Believe me, I can stay for an hour or maybe more just going from conclusions to reasons and from one person’s story or life to another. It’s really weird but that’s how sometimes waiting for time to pass can look like ๐Ÿ˜€

Anyway, I won’t lie to you. The reason I am writing this blog is somehow might be silly :D. As this summer, especially lately, I started watching LOADS of TV shows, movie and stuff like that. You might even notice from previous blogs this summer. Look, I am not that type of person who would enjoy sitting around doing nothing and as sometimes I have no other choice other than that, being engaged in other stories doesn’t sound bad to me D. So I started to watch SO many TV shows. Well, I am not addicted yet, maybe a little obsessed with the stories I see.

I love thinking of how might a story go if a different route was taken. It might be freaky but somehow it helps me to think of the possibilities and choice I might have if I got into a similar situation or even to help me understand how might people act according to their different stories. Let me make this clearer. When I hear a story of a person or watch a TV show I learn what kind of situation he or she might be at and how they will act. That way it helps me that when for example I ask something from my colleague and they show some type of a tense reaction for no reason, then something not good must’ve happened. I start to put scenarios and I don’t push my request that I might even search for a way to help if I can. It’s weird and believe me, doing this sometimes, puts me in weird situations with people, because off course no one now do anything for free. Unfortunately, the world changed so much to let free favors take place.

Just my point is that, We all have different stories, different cast too. You might be supported by your families, friends while others don’t. Always think of the people around you as of different versions and expect anything. a year or two before I would have advised you to think of the good intentions first with everyone. well, today I won’t, Today, I would tell you watch your back. The good intentions might only exits with your family or people you think might care just not to lose them or fight over non trust and stuff like that, but always be careful. Watch. your. back!

Remember that your story is different from their’s.

What was the wierdst story you heard or saw and thought about for so long?

We are messy like a 100 pieces of puzzle

Who am I? I ask myself this question every night. Every night I find a different answer for it. Some days I am the happiest under the moon, some other times I am the bluest. Sometimes I so ambitious and hopeful about the morning and some other days ย I am so hopeless that I feel it’s the end of the world and I might never wake up tomorrow.

Everyday makes me discover new things about people, the world. We are so weird, do you know that? But astonishingly, beautifully weird and that’s what makes us unique and our world somehow the right place to live at. I learn new stuff about people’s type every second. I find out that whatever I’ve knows and learned so far is never enough. There’s a quote that say:

” Without the change in tastes, the goods would’ve been ruined”

Therefore, it’s our good luck that we are different! Although, I know what you might be thinking about now, which is that life might have been so easier if we were all have the same personalities or minds. Okay, you might be right but think of living in a world where all the people are you. It can be so easier, that’s true but not forever. Even ourselves change. Like are you the same person you were a year ago, not even 10 years? We change every day, although we stay the same person at the end. Like a good person might get worse but will always return to it’s good origin. If there’s a small amount of kindness and goodness in someone, it will always show up. Changing also have measures. Like you can change a little bit over night. A person can never naturally change from batman to the joker over night :D. My point is that a person can’t be so bad over night. They might be angrier than usual so they would make an unacceptable thing but at the end they are not that bad after all.

Also remember that people are different, but there that good person who might be good just like you. So never give up on finding you match of friends or your other half. Don’t also keep that thought of that what you are doing is silly or people might not like it. If you thing it’s worth it then there is someone else somewhere also thinks the same ;). As for myself, I think of that every time i send a message or do something or even writing a blog :D. But every time I feel that thing inside me that I am happy that I am writing this so I am sure someone else might be happy to read it to :D.

After all. we are all like pieces of puzzle that always take time to be solved. Just needs time ๐Ÿ™‚ and that comes when you get to know that person better every day. Also don’t get so shocked and except anything, might happens of changes. We are all humans, and if you changed from yesterday to today then others can.

Life is full of surprises ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ™‚

What was the hugest change that happened to you :D?

Dear mind, this one is for you..

In this blog I am going to write a letter to my mind.ย 

P.S. It’s not as stupid as you think (hopefully) ๐Ÿ˜€

Dear mind,

As all letters I should start by asking how are you. Although I actually know how are you. You are always busy and tired even if with the teeny tiniest stuff that goes around you. Therefore, I am begging you to have some rest because you don’t only make yourself tired but me, my body and soul.

Thanks for the caring though. You’ve always been there to keep me awake and ready all the time. You kept me safe most of the time by making me realize the danger I might be in or making me able to analyze the type of people that I am dealing with. But, don’t you think that it’s too much? You are right that life is hard and might be getting harder and more dangerous every second. That way I might be having no one left to trust, do you realize that? It’s hard to make all of it with only us. Right! Safety is important and thinking but there is a pale here who is called heart who also needs some freedom, you know that, right ?

Also, why do you work so much? Huh? I am so tired of worrying about everything, aren’t you? Like in this very moment I am thinking of a lot of things. For others, these things might be so silly, but not for me. You always tell me that I can keep up, that I can take more. It’s nothing compared to other’s concerns. You might be right, but it’s only your sound, do you realize that? Have you heard the rest of my body’s sounds? My soul? My heart?

Why do you keep lying to me? Why do you keep telling me that everything is going to be fine, give me the hope and then in a second steal it from me? Why do you keep me dreaming and flying when you know that in a moment I will fall hardly to the ground?

The questions are a lot. I know I will never get the answers. I just hope that one day, I might be able to see the dreams, reality. That’s not your sound this time. It’s my heart’s. It’s the faith and hope in it. It’s the sound the you face every time you remind me of the dark reality, of the world’s cruelty. The world is good, really. If you could picture the colored picture of it, then it should exist somewhere. Will you keep that piece of information please and keep reminding me of it?

I stopped for a moment now before this to think of what I write next and I found out that whatever can be wrote might take all the words in the world, but won’t be enough. Just remember one thing. Whatever happens, the worse is yet to come.

Yours,

Me

What would your letter to your mind would be?

( sorry if that seemed a little bit psycho, sometimes we have to admit some things to ourself to keep space for the coming next. Go on! Empty what’s in you too ๐Ÿ™‚ )

The dead stars are shining

May I ask you a question? Why did our world became full of lies? I mean why did we became easily deceived by the shining diamonds that covers the black heart and dead souls?

As I said in the title that most of the bright stars that we see at the night are really dead, but we still get amused by how shiny they are. In the past, they used to say believe what you see, not what you hear. Now, don’t even believe yourself sometimes, because even us lie on ourselves. Life became a BIG play with the same script of the past but different cast. The truth somehow became not trusted, because we started to believe the lies we say that we actually forgot the truth.

We have always been classified to classes. By money, status or power. The young and weak people are seen as useless, while they actually are the only ones who might be seeing the uncovered truth. My point is that not everything seem shiny or cracked looks like what is shows. So don’t believe what you see in your hands, take a step back and have a look on the bigger picture. Sometimes we get blinded of how we might be actually taken to a very dark place, but they fill our mind all the way about how bright and beautiful that place is, just to get us out of the way. Unfortunately, we no longer live in a peaceful, humanitarian place, with all the laws and rules to protect us from each other. Things for someone in my age seem so dark and hopeless. I am a high school student in her senior year who is supposed to be hopeful about her successful future, and I am! Really! But, sometimes I take a step back and look at the full picture and try my best to see the truth with no illusion and all I can see is darkness and destruction, maybe a little bit of light if I am lucky enough. Although all of that, somehow I find the hope in me. I feel that my fight is not here yet, although I keep fighting for my family, friends or even anyone I can. I feel like I might be tired now before even I start fighting for my own.

I feel like my faith in humanity is gone but I still try to lock what’s left inside from evaporating and fading in the air. It’s not right for someone in my age to face things like what’s in the news and the world around here everyday. When will us the youth and the people who though for years that what keeps them from their dream is their luck to have a chance? When will our faith in humanity be full again? I dream and keep the faith in hope for a better world that I might find when it’s the time for my fight. Day dreaming and overthinking, if not all the time, then most of it. I wish that one day life would become easier, cleaner and more true with no lies, no hiding.

After all, maybe the starts that I see at night are dead, but they still shine even after they are no longer there :).

Love?

Well, that might be the first time to right about love, maybe even the first time to think of it as a real thing that exist in life. Just to be clear, it’s not because I am falling in love :D, let’s say just that it’s something that because of the fantasies that I read and watched about I nearly believed that it doesn’t actually exists. I jut want to post it because I feel that it might guide someone, who knows :D. After all it’s all my point of view that yours might be completely different, which is completely awesome ๐Ÿ˜‰ :D.

I’ve always thought of Love as weakness or a big lie and I still think the same actually but in a different way as I grew up. Love is weakness towards the person you love, it’s that you might have to give up everything for the person that stole your love out of you. That person stole your heart yes, but somehow, it seems so right that it’s hardly a theft. Love can be the biggest lie we might live if it’s only for entertainment, if we judged it before it even starts or made it ourselves. It can be a lie if it was more than love, if it was fantasy. Love has no questions or thoughts. Although I jus said that love is weakness but that weakness make you weak for your beloved ones but stronger than a hurricane and destructive, worse than a storm if it had anything wrong to do with your other half. That strength is weird enough, for me, I’ve never knew how powerful it is, but I am sure it’s stronger than the strongest thing on earth. The reason of it for me too is still unknown, maybe because you feel full that you have your other half.ย 

Real love is something different and weirdly nice, you will feel that one timeย  or twice if you are that lucky! Love is supposed to be the relaxation and simplicity, it’s supposed to show the best of you, the glory that is buried deeply in you. True that it sometimes deserves the fight, but it’s supposed to be flowing like water. It’s when you don’t have to hold a gun to keep it there or make plans to keep the person you love beside you.

From my point of view, the worst thing ever is the conspiracy that someone should be with us just because we love them, although they don’t feel the same, or be with someone who loves us but we don’t. The idea of love is that both sides, trust, respect and be passionate for each other. If it’s anything other than that, then good luck next time because that’s not love and you are just making things worse for you and the others.ย 

True love stories for me is nothing like what’s in novels or movies, although it’s a nice dream though that I would be happy to happen :D, but the ones that when two old grandparents sit there and tell. That’s true love , because love is trust and loyalty that might not happen at the start most of the times but if they passed everything together to that age and still smile when they look or touch to each other then who needs more than that! Someone to trust and be happy with and keep each other safe.

Love is not just a word and it doesn’t happen in just a night and after all, it’s all destinies that we never can change. You might actually fall in love with the last person you can expect to even look at their face, meet at the last place you can expect or even that person can be so close that you might be that shocked when you guys actually fall in love ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ˜€

The most important thing I want to say here is that never even mix up liking someone with loving. Because liking might happen everyday, but love is the rarest and doesn’t even happen to everyone.

It’s weird that I am even posting this because believe me, I’ve never thought about that topic or maybe thought yes, but for other people or just to think of it nothing more. Just take care of yourself, where is your heart taking you, because it might take you to dark places that you might regret visiting later and maybe never getting out of it. That’s my main goal of this after all. ๐Ÿ™‚

So! How did you fall in love ๐Ÿ˜‰ :D?

Productivity knows no strategy

In the past year, Iโ€™ve been told that I study a lot or that I spend a lot of time studying and that I am a nerdy- which wasnโ€™t so true by the way :D. Well, Studying too much was true especially that in my country most students have private lessons out of school to help them in studying and scoring high marks. So even if it wasnโ€™t myself studying alone I would be having a lesson anyway. Therefore, people started asking me how do I do it? Like what type of strategy I follow to keep me studying without being sick of the book, although I actually hardly sit focusing for so much time on learning some kind of information.

SO! First of all! I didnโ€™t have any strategies or time tables expect those ones to remind me of my exam timings, or my lessons.ย  The only thing I had was faith and goals. Goals of having my own successful, famous, global business or being one day one of the youngest entrepreneurs or ย have an early PhD. Big hopes right ๐Ÿ˜‰ :D? Anyway, I had the aim of high score and achievements. So simply, I followed my heart and used my mind. I did what I see best to me. I didnโ€™t study complete full hours, I used to watch TV shows or listen to music when I just get sick of it all. I made my favorite food or asked my mum, actually :D. I knew my duties well and knew my date and deadlines very well. I tried my best to enjoy it like hanging out mainly every weekend with my friends or got to the gym to get rid of the negative energy and on the exam days I practiced my own sport at home. I did it all hoping to get the best marks but I didnโ€™t put that as a must. I just did my best and went for it.

Most importantly, is that I LOVED what I did. I picked the subjects that I love and loved to major at, so whatever I did was pleasing me more than just studying for it. It meant more. Therefore, an advice from me to you, do what you love. Donโ€™t get obligated to something, because if you donโ€™t love it, you wonโ€™t give it what it needs from you. When you do the something you love, you will find yourself doing it and spending time in it just as easy and gentle as the water flows.

That was about my studies but that applies to everything, to your job, your relationships, everything. So if you are reading this and there is that thing you that someone forced you to do, well refuse it! Do what you think you are best for and that you enjoy. Remember that if the thing you are doing is joyful to you then you will never need strategies to keep it always to the top ๐Ÿ˜‰

SO! What changes are you going to change now? What doesnโ€™t need strategies to produce for you ๐Ÿ˜‰ :D?

Mirror mirror on the wall..

Who didn’t ever wish to have a mirror on the wall that shows us everything happening and most important of all is that it shows the truth, just like the one at Snow White. Don’t get me wrong we actually kinda have one of those mirrors that are called TVs and Internet, although it might be full of rumors. Well whatever, that’s not what I want to talk about here now actually, maybe some other blog. ๐Ÿ˜€

We all agree that mirrors, the ones we have, shows truth, Like for example, if you look cute it will show you cute unlike the phones and filters. However, our eyes are the ones that look at mirror and judge what it sees, and that’s EXACTLY what that blog is about. Most of the time when we dress something like for example, worse yesterday, the first thing comes in my mind ” oh, but I wore that yesterday what will people think..” and then some of us might say ” nah.. who cares I just Love that t-shirt, i am going with it today too!”. Some others say ” I better change it and wear something else or people might think that I don’t do my laundry” or ” That I don’t have other than this T-shirt”. Well Both ways, still the first thing pops in our minds is the people’s opinion. Off course people’s opinion is important and maintaining our image but mostly we might be harming ourselves for caring about other people than us.

The pressure of always looking to what people think or say might keep our minds busier than it’s supposed to be and obviously pay more than we can afford ๐Ÿ˜€ The idea here is that You can keep that pressure but for your own judge, your own benefit and happiness. Like if you are going to buy a new dress or wear make up or go to the gym or buy a new car that is really luxurious. Then do! But first are you doing it for your own pleasant and satisfaction or is it for people’s eyes? Because believe me, people’s eyes always see that it doesn’t matter how much effort you put into it, they still believe that they are the best. It’s human nature! The whole idea here is that if you want to bear the pressure of staying fit is for your own health and pleasure so that when YOU look in the mirror, YOU judge yourself not the people. You can accept people’s polite judgment, you know those ones that might help you keep things better but believe me, NO ONE EVER has the right to make a joke of you. We are all human beings and we all good and better than each others in different ways the are many to count.

So! The next time you look at the mirror all you are going to think of is ” Does that look good to me? Does the change or the maintain worth it to keep me happy and satisfied in my own way of life ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ˜€ ”

If you are looking at the mirror now what will you say? ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ˜€

Can it be real ..?

When we hear about someone who is so happy and satisfied in their life or so successful or got lucky, people say that itโ€™s his or her luck and that if it happened it mostly happen on TV shows , movies and in the dreams.

Itโ€™s true that most of what we see on the screens is not true and much more prefect than reality, but have you ever thought about that idea that if someone thought about it then it actually exists in the real life? We are all human beings at the end and it doesnโ€™t matter how genius and smart someone is our celling of thought always has a limit that we all have and can reach and no one can reach more than it. Therefore, Whatever we see and open our mouths in surprise and astonishment, I think we also can reach that much of greatness. ย I know that what I am thinking about is a little bit weird and a lot of overthinking but I actually have been watching a lot of TV shows this holiday and I couldnโ€™t help but notice the details and watch normal people around me, compare the reality and whatโ€™s-so-called dream world and compare them and I found out that both world are the same, just a little more purified.

Iโ€™ve tried to actually try this dreamy world in real life to prove that to myself that everything is possible. I tried even the simple things like my lifestyle such as trying to have healthy food and simple one too like I didnโ€™t get the expensive type of food to keep myself healthy I tried with the simple stuff I had and it actually kind of worked. I have been sporting and take care of myself. I tried to change my life plans like instead of just sitting around caring about nothing to actually get engaged in the conversations around me and training in the career I am planning to have. I started leaning new languages and planned for my senior year that I would be doing more than just studying for my diploma, like having driving lessons, or writing more something that doesnโ€™t only depends on my grades, after all school is go to be done but my life wonโ€™t and I still have a lot to learn other than my lessons and ALs.

After all, it seemed to me that what we see on the screens can actually happen in real life if we want, it depends on how we want it. We donโ€™t have to be statues to be perfect, remember that whatever we see on the screen or dream of is all created by a human being, just like you. They create the story and scenario to make an imaginary story for us to enjoy or learn from. You too! Create your own story and your own heroes. Itโ€™s your own life babe! Live it as much as you can and make from your own life a story that is the nearest to perfection, because the truth is nothing is called perfection.

How do you see what is on the screen now? Still impossible to happen in real life yet? ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ˜€

PS:Life is too short

Live everyday like you it’s the last day of your life, and live your life as if you live forever

We all have our own fights, some of them are the ones that help us build our lives and give us a goal to live for. Others that only waste our life time, such as our fights with our families and friends. Some fights yes worth it, but they are few ones that rarely happens. Life isn’t that long to spend it in ignoring phone calls of your beloved ones or staying home sitting on the couch and cancel hanging out.

Listen! From now on, you are not cancelling any going outs to stay at home, or cancelling phone calls because you just don’t want to answer it. Fell free to go out do what you’ve always wished for as long as you can! Be who you’ve always wanted to be.

Remember: When you are backed against the wall, break the goddamn thing down

– Suits TV Show

Most importantly is to not depend on someone for your happiness or to do you something for you. Since my holiday started, I’ve been asking people and my father to ask for me about a center to learn Italian at it, but off course everyone is busy, therefore, I started to learning on my own and Io studio l’italiano di per una settimana adesso (I study Italian for a week now) :D. Do what is best for you no matter what ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ˜€

Life is short to be sad or angry for more than usual it deserves. Look around and see how life can be so nice and shady and the same time. Also remember that life is mainly gray, black or white are the colors of the extreme that at special occasions can show up.

Honestly, That blog should be short because it’s not me who is going to tell you how to make yourself happy and lively. It’s you who should think how can you make your life easier and better ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ˜€

Any ideas? ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ˜€
