And Now The End Is Near...

I first started watching One Tree Hill less than a year ago. I’ve watched reruns of season 6, and after just 3 episodes I was addicted to OTH. So I decided to buy all the OTH DVDs, from season 1 to season 7, so I could start from the beginning.
Once I got all the DVDs, I started with season 1 on March 27th, 2011. Less than a month later, I was done with season 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7! And not only that, I’ve seen each season a minimum of 3 times.
In a few days, I will be getting my season 8 DVD (which I have ordered online J) although I have already seen it (but as you can already tell, I’m going to watch it again, and again and again :p).
It’s a really funny thing that I got addicted to One Tree Hill…here’s why:
Back in 2005, while I was still a sophomore at university, one of my best friends got OTH season 1 on DVD, and I remember her coming up to my dorm room, trying to get me to watch the show. She was explaining the story, and the characters, but my exact words were “it sounds li…

"And I miss you, like the deserts miss the rain..."

"And I miss you, like the deserts miss the rain..."

I had this song stuck in my head for a while, and it got me thinking...
A desert is called a desert because it doesn't rain there. Take for example the driest desert in the world, "Atacama Desert'" in South America. It hasn't had any significant rain fall in over 300 years.
Now I'm not here to give you a geography lesson...

The line "And I miss you like the deserts miss the rain", from the song Missing by the British band Everything But The Girl, doesn't make sense. How can you miss something you never had?! If it doesn't rain in the deserts, then the deserts don't know what rain is (assuming you're talking about deserts as a thing that can experience feelings and emotions, as implied in the song line above), therefore the desert will not miss the rain!

Maybe the song line should go like this "And I miss you like the forests miss the rain"....

Now that doesn'…

How Do I Live Without You...

Less than two months ago, I lost my dad to cancer. Everything just happened so fast; from the time he started chemo to when he passed away was 2 months… Things haven’t been easy, and I don’t know when it will get easier.

Some days I feel okay, but other days I just feel like crying. Some days I  just feel that he’s not gone, that he’s still here, and he’ll be back home any minute.  I just can’t accept the fact that I’m never going to see him again, it’s too hard.
I’m trying to cope with everything, but sometimes it seems impossible.
I keep telling myself and everyone else that I’m okay…but I don’t know if I am. At times, I really feel okay, I go to work, I smile, I go shopping; but at others, I just feel like crying, or angry, or I snap at people for no reason at all, or just in a ‘whatever’ mode.
I just feel depressed most of the time; at work I stopped going out to lunch with my colleagues because I just didn’t feel like it. I barely eat, I just have one meal a day…and I know it’s not…

Time For A Change

If you walk into my bedroom, you'd think you're walking into a 5 year old's bedroom. The walls are painted pink, I have a pink bedspread with colored flowers on it, and over 30 teddy bears on top of my 6.5 meters wide closet...everywhere you look, it's guaranteed that you'll find more evidence that it's a room for a 5 year old!
Last week, out of the blue, I decided to change the theme of my bedroom! I decided to paint the walls light purple and transform it into a grown-ups bedroom!
My room has been through so many transformations, from white to baby blue to pink and now, to soon-to-be purple. 
Although I love my room the way it is, it's time for a change...
