An Announcement

This announcement needs a prologue. I’m sorry I haven’t posted in a couple of months, but I have a reason.

This summer, I moved from my home in Sofia, Bulgaria to Budapest, Hungary. I’ve been in transition for about a month now and in denial before that. It’s still a little hard for me to handle, but I’m getting there.

A good friend of mine that I look up to, said this about transition: “Transition” sounds so easy.  It’s not, though.  It’s like a roller coaster; sometimes there are fun parts and other times your head gets knocked around and you just want off the ride.  In the end, though – you get to have bragging rights – ‘I DID IT!!!'”

So, to celebrate my life on the rollercoaster now, I’m making a list of GOOD and BAD. Except, I’ve decided to shake it up and make it the SPLENDID and the BLAH

Splendid: Our apartment is so pretty and in the middle of the city.

Blah: We have to get up early for school, since it’s forty minutes by car.

S: There is a lovely tea shoppe by us, that I can go to and do my homework.

B: I don’t like my school.

S: I take choir and volleyball.

B: My classes are dull.

S: I’m learning a new language!

B: The school is in an ignorance bubble.

S: Budapest is pretty

B: I miss the mountains.

S: The girls are welcoming and nice.

B:  I miss my friends.

S: I can watch TV via Skype with Voldemort.

B: It’s not really the same.

So there’s my list. And my excuse. I’ll try to remember to post at least three times a week, maybe more. 🙂 You’ll get tired of me yet!

An Apology.

I’m very ashamed right now. *Hides face* Very ashamed. I have not posted in *checks calendar* approximately two weeks. Ah! I have excuses though. The primary ones being

a) my parents were gone the first week and I was at Voldemort’s house.

b) There was a basketball tournament for the high schoolers plus one for the middle schoolers. (Fireling is on the middle school team.)

c) I got sick. Again.

aaaannnd d) Voldemort’s parents were gone and she came over here. Yeah. It’s a crazy life. So here is my post to make up for all that time.

*Whistles*

*Hums*

*Glances at the ceiling*

I’m blocked. Yuck. Don’t you just hate that? I do. Obviously. Grr. I should stop with the small sentences. They’re annoying. AH! I can’t stop! Okay, I think I’m good now. *little ranting over*

Back to writer’s block. I have heard that music and insomnia are the only cures for writer’s block. They are not working for me. Help!

Can you tell I’m desperate? Do you have any ideas for cures? What do you do if you have writer’s block?

P.S. Wow. This was not the epic apology post I hoped it would be. I’m sorry.

~The StoryWeaver, again.

Here are some reviews on some latest movies/songs/books I’ve been watching/listening to/reading. I’m going to try and do this every week so eeennnnjooooy!!

MOVIE: The Prestige starring Hugh Jackman and Christian Bale. Four out of five stars. **** It’s one of those movies that you can’t really explain without giving away the ending. But basically, two magicians are competing against each other in the early 1900’s England. A vendetta between them drives one to obsession (Hugh Jackman) on how the other (Christian Bale) accomplishes a trick that just might be real. The overall creepiness and kinda spooky air was very mysterious and added to the glamour. The main reasons it wasn’t five stars was because there were too many unanswered questions at the end.

ANOTHER MOVIE: Newsies starring Christian Bale. (Voldemort and I really like Christian Bale.) Five stars ***** Yay for musicals! Some people will wonder why I gave it five stars *coughmusicalhaterscough* but to me, it’s a wonderful tale about the newspaper boys’ strike in the late 1800’s. The romance was a little off, but the music, spot on! I want to organize a strike now…

BOOKS: The False Princess by Eilis O’Neal. Five stars. ***** I love a good princess mystery full of intrigue. When Nalia is told that she is not really a princess, but simply a stand-in for another one, she must learn how to become a commoner when living with her grumpy aunt and a scatterbrained wizard. The heroine, Nalia and then Sinda, is very likable and real. She isn’t perfect and she struggles with her locked-up magic and unhappy twist of fate. The secondary characters were amazing, I especially loved the scatterbrained wizard. 🙂

Also, Unwind by Neal Shusterman. Three out of five stars. *** A very creepy post-apocalyptic book set after the second civil war. It was fought over abortion and the decision was made that abortion was murder, but during the ages of thirteen and eighteen, kids could be “unwound”. “Unwinding” consists of the person being taken apart, piece by piece so they are not technically dead. Three “Unwinders” escape from their fate and try to make it on their own. Three stars because of creepiness and a little swearing. I wasn’t aware of it when I read it. Ooops!

SONG: Headphones by Britt Nicole. Five stars *****. Because it’s awesome. It’s a song about fitting in, with such a catchy beat and message my rock-loving friend Voldemort loved it. Go look it up. Now. Hahaha. You don’t have to. But you’re missing out! *Innocently whistles*

Any feedback?

I’m going to introduce you to people who will often be in my blog.

1.) My sisters. Fireling, Spiritess and Dramatika.  They are all younger than me. Their nicknames kinda describe them. Yeah, just imagine. (Names may be subject to change.)

2.) My friends. Voldemort, the quiet(ish), rock-loving friend who enjoys coffee and Kestrel, the also quiet, usually fiery friend who doesn’t like coffee. They’re both girls, by the way.     (No, those are not their names. Yes, there is a story behind that. No, I won’t tell you right now.)

3.) And last but not least…. my cat. ‘Cuz she’s cute. Here she is:

 

Isn't she cute?

Don’t let her cuteness fool you. She’s very crazy. Hence the nickname, PsychoKitty.

It was Fireling and Spiritess’ birthday party today. (They’re not twins, they just have birthdays close together.) It was quite overwhelming because, though you would not know it online, I am very introverted. So 27 kids between the ages of 8-13 is very headache-making. But Voldemort was there, so we had fun together. We manned the presents table. 🙂

Do you have any siblings/pets/siblings that act like pets?

Until later…
