Us, Teenagers

We waste way too much time worrying about the tiniest things, don’t you think? We are able to make a big deal out of nothing. Teenagers, including myself, go on shitty moods because of the dumbest things you could ever think of. “I don’t have time to finish a project”, “my average dropped”, “Oh god! That test went so badly”, “Why can’t that guy like me?”, “Why did my friend do that?”, “I really don’t want to go with those people but I feel like I have to”, “I hate all of those cool people, always judging, always talking behind your back”, and whatnot. Holy shit. Ain’t it true, though? We worry, we cry, we suffer, we stress out, because of problems that don’t even exist.

It’s taken me way too long to figure this out. Sure, I knew before but now life and its circumstances makes me want to do something about it. Now, I do want to live my life to the fullest, and I’m seriously going to do whatever it takes.

If I don’t want to go, I will not go.
If it’s not worth it, I will quit.
If I don’t like them, I will stop putting on an act.
I will laugh my heart out. I will wake up on mondays and be happy because who says a monday cannot be the best day of my life? I will love unconditionally because love makes people happy. I will enjoy the feeling of a hot shower in the morning. I will not die working. I will try to make a difference. Because going with the flow does not work.

I am positive for the negative is dark, and why would you not see the beauty out there when there is tons of it?



After all the cleaning up I had to do at home before our cargo comes, I found so many things that I was like, “Damn, I need to blog this”.

First of all, I had a little reunion with my favorite teddy of all times. It’s probably one of the biggest I’ve ever owned and sleeping with it, it’s almost like sleeping with another human being. And it’s so soft. As you can see, it’s pink so when I was small, I thought that directly made it a female. I never named it, which is weird. Maybe, it’s not too late to name it now?


Then, I found this picture of me that looks like a painting, but it’s just an edited picture to make it look like a sketch and then, we framed it.  I got that done when I was 6 or 7 at my school. Does it look like me at all?


And I found the most valuable things I could’ve asked for.
First, I found a diary that my grandma gave me a couple of years ago, which I never started. It’s the green one in the gallery below. I’m thinking I should really start it. Fill those pages in. I love writing and it’s great to look back at what I’ve done. Plus, it’s a diary that has meaning and value to it not just a notebook I bought so I could write in it, you know? My grandma gave it to me as a birthday present if I remember correctly.

What else did I find? If I told you, you wouldn’t believe it. I found three diaries of mine. I used to keep a diary when I was little. I started when I was 6 about to turn 7 and kept it till I was 9. Then, I stopped keeping one. And I started out again when I was 12, and I wrote my last diary entry last summer. I should really get back on track, shouldn’t I?

And my favorite thing ever. I actually knew they were here and I couldn’t wait to get here just to find them. When I was small, I wrote stories. Of course, they weren’t very well-written. But the ideas behind them surprise me now that I look back at them. When I was 6, I wrote a story about two girls who found out what geometrical figures were for when they saw a cat. And then, on the side I drew a cat. The face was a circle. The ears triangles. The body was an oval. And the legs, rectangles. I think it’s kind of smart of me to write that. But I have my favorites out of the collection. There are 17 stories in total. One of the stories I like the most is one of a butterfly who was stuck to its cocoon but then she got other animals to help her out and with their help, she flew. I wrote this one when I was 6. Another story I really enjoy was one of a bear who was white with black spots, but all of the bears he knew were black with white spots. This bear was invited to a party and he was scared because he was different. He didn’t have any presents to give so he took a dried flower hoping for the best. On his way, it started to rain and so, his spots and fur reversed color and the flower became really beautiful. He went in the party looking like the rest and with a beautiful flower. It’s all about taking risks. I wrote this one when I was 7. There’s so much to think about these stories. They’re unintentionally or intentionally (I don’t know, I was so small I can’t remember) meaningful and beautiful.

It makes me proud to know that this little thing I have for writing started when I was really young. I started keeping a diary and now I’m here, with the desire to share my thoughts out to the world.


How is my life now? It’s great! I have to admit I’m quite happy with how things are going now. Strength, initiative, confidence and positivity being the main principles I have been showing this month, which makes me extremely proud 🙂

Anyhow, my summer started on June 1st. So my first week of summer is almost gone just like that. Crazy stuff. I’ve been hanging out with some friends, going to the beach, going to the park, etc. So you know, making memories and stuff. Hahaha! It’s been amazing so far, enjoying them little things. And there are more things to come; cinema, and I don’t know soo much. I might be posting some pictures!

And guess what? I think I have a little summer writing project. A collection of writing pieces on… MOVING BACK. To Spain. A friend of mine said, moving away is mainstream but moving back isn’t. Everyone assumes it’s easy. So, there we go. It’ll be a collection of creative writing, articles, everything. Anything I feel like writing.

More things I want to talk about. I’ve found my little passion here, on WordPress, blogging. Meeting great and inspirational people and sharing my experiences with the WordPress community. It’s boosted my passion for words and my desire to write. I feel as if this is a wonderful opportunity that started as me being bored on a weekend. It’s an opportunity which has opened a lot of opportunities for me. Recently, I found an offer to write book reviews. I’ll tell you how that works. I’m so excited, you guys have no idea. I’m supposed to get the ebook tomorrow so I can read within two weeks and review it. I’ll make sure to post it on my blog or at least post a link to it. I can’t wait to get the book. This is the one I’m getting.
It looks cool, doesn’t it?

As of now, that’s all I’ve got to say. See you guys lataah.

YOUR Initiative.

If I like writing, I can write;
If I write, I will have something to be proud of;
If I have something to be proud of, I can feel satisfied;
If I’m satisfied, I will have inspiration;
If I have inspiration, I will be motivated to write;
If I’m more motivated to write, I will write.  

Take initiative and follow your passions.

My writing might not be your writing for you. It might be your photography, your art, your music, your reading, your sport, your hobby. Whatever it is, do it. I’ve learnt that it’s never too late to make The Journey Of Your Thoughts into the The Journey Of Your Actions.

Inspiration- Solution to negative thoughts and attitude towards a tough situation

Here I’ll post some stuff that I found particularly inspirational to change the way I see and feel during something that’s a challenge to me. I hope this inspires you too 🙂

1) A little poem I came across today during drama class! Not because we were meant to read it or anything. It was on a table and I decided to pick it up and read it. I’m glad I did. These small things can make your day. Anyway, it is a great read if you’re having a tough time. It’s very inspiring and will definitely change your attitude towards whatever it is that’s bringing your mood down.

“Be thankful that you don’t already have everything you desire,
If you did, what would there be to look forward to?

Be thankful when you don’t know something
For it gives you the opportunity to learn.

Be thankful for the difficult times.
During those times you grow.

Be thankful for your limitations
Because they give you opportunities for improvement.

Be thankful for each new challenge
Because it will build your strength and character.

Be thankful for your mistakes
They will teach you valuable lessons.

Be thankful when you’re tired and weary
Because it means you’ve made a difference.

It is easy to be thankful for the good things.
A life of rich fulfillment comes to those who are
also thankful for the setbacks.

GRATITUDE can turn a negative into a positive.
Find a way to be thankful for your troubles
and they can become your blessings.”

2) Advice. This comes from experience, not that I had that much considering that I’ve only lived for 14 years.
-Act positive until you become positive
-Take pride in your strength
-Get your mind thinking about other things!
– Don’t kill yourself with depressing music or things that you know will make you feel worse. Reward youself. Do things you like. Love yourself, take care of yourself and make yourself feel better!
-Start seeing the other good things to your life and appreciating them. Your family, friends, everything! You’re alive! Make the best out of it.

3) Music. As I said before, don’t kill yourself with depressing music. There’s no use. How about you listen to a happy song or a funny one? Uhh songs by The Lonely Island, maybe?

4) Others. Life should revolve around other people. Otherwise, it becomes pointless. Do things for others! It’ll make you feel good about yourself.

That’s it. I hope you guys found this sort of helpful and got some inspiration. Give me some feedback. Comment if you like things like this! Make me feel happy. 😀 See you soon!

4.5.13- An update

Hello there! 20 days of school left. Yes, I’m already keeping a countdown. I have to say that there’s a lot of work coming up for me but I’m okay with it. My positive thinking is starting to happen! Woohoo! Hahaha! I finally started the course I enrolled at Coursera and I’m loving it. I really recommend all of you to sign up and try some courses if you like learning new things. I have an MUN conference on tuesday and wednesday and I’m not even halfway through my resolution! I’m going to have my butt off tomorrow because I also have other things to do. Ahh. I can’t wait for summer just so I’m not so busy with things. It’s not that I’m stressed, I’m just busy and don’t get lots of free time. And I mean, who doesn’t like free time? But umm, yeah. Things are going well overall and I’m happy enjoying my present, replaying memories and thinking of my future. Just living life.

No More Only If’s

To all those who think;

Only if I was a bit skinnier…
Only if I was better at sports…
Only if I was richer…
Only if I had his attitude…
Only if my life was different…
Only if I was as smart as he is…

I have a couple of words for you, actually two words; SHUT UP. Not because it bothers me but because it’s pointless. What if you weren’t yourself? Then, what? I’m sure you wouldn’t enjoy that.

(Okay. I’m even sounding mad. Hahaha! What I’m trying to say is that there isn’t a point in wishing things would be different or envying others. At the end of the day, it’s your life and it’s you. You’re different and have great qualities as well. Instead of thinking about what you don’t have/aren’t or what you have/are and don’t like, think about the good things about yourself. The combination of things that make you unique and who you are. Think of the good experiences and people in your life. Think of your happiness and be happy. Life is too short for these things.)


Remember when…?

Memories. They bring people, laughter, feelings, places, and events altogether to construct a part of your past and even present. I could close my eyes and go back to the good times or make the bad times good. Wait, I have an idea! Let’s do this together. Memories; think of your family, friends, or even strangers and the experiences you shared with them. You just got a small essence of your life, am I right? AND it felt good. Now, I want you to think of a specific memory. It could be anything, as small as a sentence that somebody said that stuck to your mind or as big as a period of time which was special to you.

For example, right now I can’t help but think of the countless hours I spent on the bus with my friends in France. (Cultural trip!) I play the songs we used to play on the bus and a lot of things just come back to me. I’m also thinking about my little cousin. She’s 6 and she’s turning 7 next month. I remember when she was telling me about her “boyfriend” and how he kissed her.

I don’t know. Sometimes I get lost in the past and can’t live in the present. But I love it. I love looking back at things. It gives me strength and happiness.

Okay. Do you have your memory yet? If you’re having a tough time finding one (although I don’t think you shouldn’t), listen to music or look at old photos. They’ll draw a smile on your face!

So, now that you have your memory… replay it in your head. Feel it all over again. Let yourself enjoy this feeling. I’m sure you forgot about your life at the moment. Don’t forget that this memory is yours. That nobody has the exact same memory, even if they’re part of it and can remember it, they’ll see it differently. So, hold onto your memories 🙂
