After studying so much, I can now calmly breathe again. Although I'm not looking forward to seeing the results. Not that I didn't make an effort, but ignorance is sometimes bliss.

Meet my dog, his name is Kuky (pronounced cookie). He's eight years old, but a puppy at heart. I never get tired of taking pictures of him. Since I'm an only child, he's like the little brother I never had and the best companion I could have asked for. I don't know what I'd do without him.

Anyway, it's sad to see so many teenagers taking their own life because of bullying. I was on Tumblr this morning when I came across a post about Amanda Todd, a Canadian girl who committed suicide shortly after posting a video of Youtube. You can also read about it here. We're all human, and we all make mistakes. There is no reason why anyone should "deserve" getting bullied. Some cases are only about name calling, but in this girl's case, she was also physically assaulted. What's worse is that it's not just certain countries that are going through this social problem, but it's rather a global issue. Before, I used to think bullying was more common in elementary schools, since children are sometimes unaware of their actions. But seeing teenagers, young adults and adults act as bullies, from my point of view it's irrational and barbarous. Makes me lose hope in humanity.

Midterms are over

Certain things are not going to change. Me, for example. It took me like two days to decide which template I should choose for this blog. The indecisiveness is one of my unique qualities. There are other times, however, in which my confidence on a decision is surprisingly high.

Another thing that surprises me, is the fact that people actually view this blog. When I first begun I thought it was going to be me writing for an imaginary audience, apparently not. Although I haven't received any feedback, just seeing the amount of visits increase makes me happy.

I can't wait for summer to arrive, or at least a decent spring, because practically it's still winter. I'm craving an icy cold caramel frappuccino. But I can't have one because when I have cold drinks during cold weather, I tend to get sick easily. Anyway, I still haven't come up with a specific category for this blog yet, that's in case you're wondering. It's still just random thoughts of a wannabe photographer and writer. 

Is it possible to miss a place just because of it's clear blue skies and glowing sunsets?

It's as simple

I tend to get inspired at all the wrong times. Just after making my "To-Do List" and getting started with all the school assignments, my brain suddenly has an explosion of imagination. Random ideas come to mind, mainly pertaining to photography, oil painting, blogging and new music I must download. Seriously brain? Why?
And then when I have free time, thoughts go blank and I just feel like sitting on the couch, watching movies.

Anyway, I've been trying to come up with a theme for this blog, as in a category. But I can't think of anything. I sometimes doubt in the first place whether I'm going to have enough time for this. I was thinking and well, turns out that I don't photograph that often, I don't know how to cook, I haven't picked up any of my stencils in months, and I don't even have enough free time to read the books of my interest, since I get sometimes get behind with what I have to read for school.  Maybe, just maybe, I'm the one that doesn't know how to organize time adequately. It wouldn't be such a bad idea to blog about how I change and actually start using my agenda.

Ok, so the book I was reading before starting the semester is the one above. Its' title is "Forgotten Garden" by Kate Morton. I'm still not done, but the plot is pretty interesting. I've been reading in Spanish since I couldn't find the English version here in Lima.

Finally, I totally recommend the song below. I have fallen in love with it. <3
