The Host


Today when I listened to the radio I heard the song ‘We found love' from Rihanna.
When I heard the lyrics 'We found love in a hopeless place', it reminded me immediately of the book ‘Host’ from Stephenie Meyer.
It’s such a wonderful book: it has science-fiction, future elements, love and so much more. You can’t really describe the feeling you get from this book.
And what’s so weird about this book is how it’s written. You see Stephenie Meyer was the one to have written the Twilight series and this book is so different from those books.
I reread the book already several times and just can’t stop, it’s always like a new experience.
What’s more, I read there will be a movie planned based on this book. I just can’t wait to see it! I just hope they can make it as good as the book. Not like they made the Twilight movies.
It’s a pity the movie isn’t planned until 2013, but I will wait patiently and make sure I will be at its premiere.

Me and my sister

I've always been the obedient one in my family.
I never did something to upset my parents,
not because I was a goody two-shoes,
but because it was just me.
I was always the quiet one, the peacekeeper.

Now that I'm older, I want to break out of this image,
to live a little, to explore myself.
But my mum just can't accept that.
She thinks I 'm becoming rebellious and
compares me to my older sister who went to live on her own.
She thinks I'm going to be like her and thinks she arouses me to do the same thing.

Well I'm not like her!
I'm me and she's herself, we're totally different!!
I'm not going to do things because she did it,
but because it's by my own choice.
It's my life dammit! I can do what I want with it.
It's my choice, not someone else's!

I wish she'd just understand.

Heels

So, past thursday, I saw on my schedule I only had two seminars
and decided that since I only had so much of class, I'd go on heels.
I'm not a heels person.
I'm more of a 'clothes for comfort' not 'clothes for looks' kinda person.
Not that I dislike heels, no I do like them,
but it's just that I'm not accostumed to them.
Even if I don't wear them often, when we went shopping last time,
Mum buyed me a great pair of Oxfords and since the moment I got them,
my little sister (16 years old, mind you) kept on complaining to me how I didn't wear them and convinced me to wear it at least once at school.
So I put them on and went to school, deciding it wasn't bad at all.

Oh how wrong was I!!
I hadn't kept in mind how high they were, seven centimeters.
At the end of my school day, my feet hurt like hell.
The next day I put on my flats again

Call credit

I don't have any call credit anymore.
All gone.
All because I've spended it on messaging.
'That isn't so unusual', you think.
'It happens to me all the time'
But with me it doesn't.
This is actually the first time it happened.
Since I've entered college, I've gotten so many friends
and I'm having so much fun messaging them.

I'm so happy ^^

Spanish karaoke


So I once told you guys in an earlier post about my Russian heritage from my mother.
The thing is my dad's a whole other story.
He's from Chile in South America.
Pretty cool huh?
There's actually a pretty story behind their meeting, but I think I'll maybe tell you another time. ;)
What does this have to do with this post?
Well the Chilean commmunity back here, organizes all sorts of activities
and one of them is a karaoke every friday evening.
My nieces, from dad's side, invited me and my sister to join them last friday and so we did.
But there, we heard the catch: There are only Spanish songs you could choose.
We are not fluent in Spanish, not at all.
Our elder sister, can fair well in Spanish, but us? Nu-uh.
I know how to pronunciate and stuff, but really talk? I'll have to practice on that.
Either way I somehow managed to pull off 'La Tortura' from Shakira, just barely.
I stumbled on the words, which flashed across the screen and my notes weren't steady.
Still my sister told me she was surprised I could pull it off, barely.
I know it's the truth, so I'm not offended. :)
In the end we four sang 'La camisa negra' from Juanes together.

It was really fun.
I call for an encore! :D

New start

New year, new start
(Boy, do I have a slow reaction or what, it's almost the end of October!)
I'm going to college now, so I decided to change the name of my blog.
No more Sakura Dream, it's now My Boring Life.
Why My Boring Life, you ask?
Well it's because I've realized how boring my life really is
and I wanna change that.
On this blog I will now still publish the miscellaneous stuff I've always posted,
but I'll also post the extraordinary things that have happened to me.
I'll keep on working to keep my life from turning out boring and
perhaps I'll succeed and maybe not, but who cares?
It's my life and I'm gonna live it my way!! :D

Vacation plans

This vacation I'll be spending once again in my mother's motherland (get the pun? Yeah I'm lame)
Nothing special there as we go there every, I mean EVERY, year.
Other news is I'm putting myself on a ban.
Yep, a ban.
I'm banning myself from reading any manga or anime for the whole while I'm abroad.
That'll be 7 weeks without my beloved pastime,
but I'll manage.
I'll have other things to do.
My sister already knows about it and will help me hold out 'till the end.
She doesn't really like all that stuff and is happy to keep me away from it.
Now all that's left to do is pack up my things and sleep a bit.
We're leaving at four in the morning, or earlier, gotta ask my mum about it, but she's a bit stressy so i think I'll pass on that.
I'll see you again. ^^

Tears


Fruits basket chapter 122
They love each other but he can't
because of who he is
he can't, because she'll be hurt
even though he loves her and she loves him
Telling her that her love was but an illusion was hard to him
but he had no choice
he felt he had no choice
and then she fell from that cliff
he knows he should've known better
Should've known he could have his chance be taken away from him
I always, no matter how many times I reread this,
find myself crying
I'm weird like that ^^'

Parents

I love my parents,
I really do.
But sometimes they can be so ... stressful.
Why this message, you say?

Today I was alone at home, minding my own business,
when my mom calls.
'Did you put your little brother in bed?' she asks.
'Huh? Isn't he with you?' I remember them taking him with them.
'Oh really? Ok. We'll soon be home.' Click. Hanged up.

What the heck!? What did they mean by that?! He isn't with them?!! Am I wrong?
I started searching him around the house and when I found he was of course not with me, I calmed down and went back to computering.
Well I was still a little tense because if he wasn't with my parents, where could he be?

Ten minutes later they were back with my brother. I broke down in tears, glad that he was alright and my mom went to comfort me.
She didn't think it would affect me this much.
Apparently at the time of the phonecall he was way back in the car and my mom forgot he was there and because he usually stays with me, she went into auto-modus and called me asking me if I put him to sleep.

Seriously, parents are a drag most of the time.

Love


When I was reading chapter 91 from Fruits Basket (a manga by Takaya Natsuki)
I just got a fuzzy feeling inside of me.
The chapter is about the background of the protagonist's parents, how they met and how he proposed to the mother.
While I was reading it, I just hoped that someone
soon would love me like that too.

Watashi no kokoro

I always feel like nobody really knows me.
Nobody really cares.
If I dissappeared,
the world would go on,
but that's just reality.

I'm afraid I'm not needed,
nobody notices me.
I want to yell to everybody to look at me,
to see 'me',
but I'm afraid I'll just be ignored,
like always.

When will the person I was born for, come to me?

You can do it!

video

This is the thirteenth ending song of Naruto Shippuden, an anime I really like to see. It's basically about a boy growing up to be a ninja while containing a demon inside of him.

This song is a pretty good one too, but I like this clip particularly because of the dance they do.

Everyone of them has their special dance and the main character (Naruto, the blond one) adjusts really easily. The real cool part is that they're dancing but also fighting and everybody fight-dances according to their moves and specialty in the series.

I just thought that I would like somebody demonstrate it to me in real life. That would be just awesome!

White day

Yesterday, March 14, it was White day in Japan.
It's the second holiday of Valentines.
Well, you see, in Japan they split the Valentine holiday.
February 14 is the day the girls give chocolates to boy(s) they like or to friends and people they are indebted to. This is just called Valentines day.
March 14 it's the boy's turn to give candy or a present (both usually white) to the girl(s) they like or to friends and people they are indebted to. This is White day.
It would be kinda fun to do, I think. Maybe it will fly over to us.
Wonder if they're celebrating it now.

Bring me back to life

video
This song represents my feelings

how can you see into my eyes
like open doors
leading you down into my core
where I’ve become so numb without a soul my spirit sleeping somewhere
cold until you find it there and lead it back home

(Wake me up)
Wake me up inside
(I can’t wake up)
Wake me up inside
(Save me)
call my name and save me from the dark
(Wake me up)
bid my blood to run
(I can’t wake up)
before I come undone
(Save me)
save me from the nothing I’ve become

now that I know what I’m without
you can't just leave me
breathe into me and make me real
bring me to life

(Wake me up)
Wake me up inside
(I can’t wake up)
Wake me up inside
(Save me)
call my name and save me from the dark
(Wake me up)
bid my blood to run
(I can’t wake up)
before I come undone
(Save me)
save me from the nothing I’ve become

Bring me to life
(I've been living a lie, there's nothing inside)
Bring me to life

frozen inside without your touch without your love darling only you are the life among the dead
all this time I can't believe I couldn't see
kept in the dark but you were there in front of me
I’ve been sleeping a thousand years it seems
got to open my eyes to everything
without a thought without a voice without a soul
don't let me die here
there must be something more
bring me to life

(Wake me up)
Wake me up inside
(I can’t wake up)
Wake me up inside
(Save me)
call my name and save me from the dark
(Wake me up)
bid my blood to run
(I can’t wake up)
before I come undone
(Save me)
save me from the nothing I’ve become
(Bring me to life)
I’ve been living a lie, there’s nothing inside
(Bring me to life)
