Looking into an empty screen and not knowing what to type. What's wrong with me? Before, writing would come so easily, I could almost blog everyday. Now, here I am, typing without knowing what I'm going to write about. Have you ever wondered what would have happened if you had done one small thing differently? It's not that I'm not happy with the life I currently have. But wondering is inevitable.
The picture above was taken by me on April 12, 2008. It seems like if it were just yesterday that I was still in Miami, at ease and unaware of what was coming up months ahead. First of all, I know people move all the time and it's perfectly normal. Some people move to a different city within the same state, or maybe to a state that's close, or maybe to a nearby country in the same hemisphere. Yeah, totally normal. How would you feel, knowing that you are going to move thousands of miles away, to a country with a whole different culture than the one you are used to? That's how I felt in late August 2008. My parents had made a decision about moving back to Perú. I know I was born there, but I had lived there for only 5 years, I could barely remember anything. Our flight was on February 22, 2009 at night. As the plane took off, I couldn't help myself from looking out the window, the city lights from a hectic city that gave me so much to remember. Looking down as the plane was getting further, knowing that I wasn't going to come back. Up to today, I still haven't. Perhaps after finishing college here, I might move back or at least go for a visit.
Anyway, I took these two pictures about two years ago, I think. Yes, that's Lima, the city in which I live in. I'm always complaining and looking forward to leave, but now that I recall, I used to do the same while I lived in Miami. I guess it's time to simply appreciate, because it might be gone before you know it.
I haven't done this in a while and it feels kind of weird. For once, I am clueless about what to write about. Where do I begin? Tumblr is fun, but not enough. At least not for me. Not to mention, there is an epidemic of teenagers that swear they are hipsters. Seriously? Hipsters are people who like to be different and not mainstream, yet there are so many of them that are alike, it's hard to say they're doing a good job at being uncommon. Well, at least that movement hasn't become as popular in my country, yet.
Another thing I'm not so fond of is how everyone's desperate to get new followers, regardless of anything else. I mean, I guess it has become somewhat addicting, since all social networks incorporate something similar. Everyone wants to be followed because they want to be known, and I understand that. I'm human too! Lol. But what I dislike is how certain popular users on Tumblr lie about promotions just because they want more followers.And not just Tumblr, but you also see that in Twitter and other sites. Also, I took the picture above using Instagram, talk about hipters. I guess we're all part of the same sick little games.
Ok, the sunset picture has no filters. I took it about four months ago. Anyway, what does Lunaris Vita mean? I'm not sure exactly. Lunaris is a greek word meaning lunar, which is something related to the moon. Vita is life. I was born in June and my birthstone is the moonstone. My zodiac sign is cancer, also pertaining to the moon. That basically sums it up. I'll try to update this blog frequently. Peace :)
