Bad news, Bad memories.

I read a blog post right now. One that made me pretty sad. It was about a cherished one's loss. It made me relive all the pain and suffering I had some time ago. All the sorrow I still have in my life. It made me go through all the steps again. It made me cry. Again.

Le, I'm so sorry for your loss. When I say I know what something like this means, I'm serious.

I miss him. With all my heart.

Dream home.

I just found these photographs on Apartment Therapy. They pretty much show exactly the place where I'd like to live someday: clean, organized, beautiful and well designed. Oh, the dreams we have...

Oh, the inspiration...

I love how ideas can become so connected and we don't even realize it.
Last week, I found this blog:, and it made me much more want to dye my hair red. I really like red hair, and I've been wanting to change my hair for a while.
Then, during the week, I realized it might be good to have a sort of a transition, and realized there are some things I've always wanted to do (or at least a part of me has always wanted). And one of them is to have some kind of different color on my hair. Like pink on the tips of my hair. I swear I almost got out of the car yesterday (which was not a very good family day) and came back home to find a salon where I could have my hair dyed pink. Not all of it, obviously, but the tips would look very nice if I put some color...
The point is, I've been trying to gather some courage to put up with all the comments that will come when I do it, and then today, when I downloaded the 20th prompt of the 2009 Learn Something New class, there it was!! First she describes how pink is her "happy color" and she eventually made it her signature color, and how she even dyed part of her hair pink, then she says:

"If this prompt has made you completely stuck for something that is your signature, then time to think about that! If a friend described you to someone else, what would they say? It's never too late to develop or change your personal style, so if you feel the need to wear pink or green or yellow with purple polka dots all week and try it out, then go for it! You have a class full of crafty types to cheer you on!"

Oh, Lord, what's a girl to do??

Discipline. Week 4. + Movie of the day 21/08: Breakfast at Tiffany's. + Online classes.

I like it. Very much. After watching both Roman Holiday and Sabrina (twice) I realized I might be postponing Breakfast at Tiffany's, 'cause I was not sure I would like it, and I very much wanted to.

So yesterday I just took it out of the box and watched. And I loved it. I loved Paul V-A-R-J-A-K, and the Doc. Ooh, the Doc is so cute. And it made me want to have a pet even more. A cat named Cat.

Oh, my...

So, that goal of going to all my classes. It almost worked. I skipped only one, on wednesday morning. And I'm quite sorry for it. I'm going this week. And I'm also gonna buy one of those books to study for that exam I applied to. I'll buy it tomorrow so I can have the rest of the week to study. Every day.

And after taking that first online class with Shimelle, I decided to try another one, with a different focus.I'm taking this year's Learn Something New Every Day. And since the class doesn't start until the first of Septenber, I've been trying my luck with last year's prompts, which are posted on the forum. I don't intend to follow the class strictly, making a page every single day only in September, but I've already started using a sketchbook I bought on Barnes & Noble last January. That way, I can use the book's kraft pages and don't have to worry about picking matching papers every time I make a page. (And by the way I don't make my pages every day. I just try to have a lesson every day, or as many days as possible, and then when I feel like it I assemble a page.)

Oh, and I sooo very much want my boyfriend to get better. I hate it when he gets ill.

Discipline. Week 3. + Movie of the day 16/08: Star Wars - The Empire Strikes Back.

First of all, I have to say I intended to go to class today. But for the first time my boyfriend actually asked me not to go. Weird huh???
Then, going back to business, my goal this week (after a few weeks doing almost nothing) is to go to every single class I have. At college, at my course and back to the italian course too. Rain or shine, tired or not, I'm going.
I even bought a cutecutecute notebook for this semester. Let's hope it gives me some motivation.

So, why did he ask me to come home?? Because today is the 16th! 2years, 5months.
And what did we do? Continue the saga, duh!! Star Wars!!
Yeah, I may not like my college and this might make it quite challenging for me to keep with my love of studying, but I'm still quite a NERD!! And proud of it!

PS: I can't get the idea of getting bangs out of my head. Again. And red hair too. I want it soooooooo much. *sigh* Check out this blog:

Movie of the day 15/08: Star Wars - A New Hope.

As I didn't know what to ask for as a birthday gift, I told my boyfriend he could give me any of the DVDs of the movies I like. Preferably one he liked too.

So, yesterday, due to a very late delivery, I got the old Star Wars trilogy. And, as we were already at his fathe's house for lunch, we got a little movie session.

I'm not a huge fan of the new trilogy, but I looove the old one. And for me, the "fourth" episode will always be the first. As weird as it is...

Movie of the day 13/08: Sabrina.

I really prefer the 1995 version. Not that I don't love Audrey's Sabrina, but when I look at Humphrey Bogart as Linus Larabee, all I can think about is my grandpa...

Linus Larabee can never be anyone but Harrison Ford. Sorry Mister Bogart.

Movie of the day 13/08: Inception.

Oh, well. I guess all I can really say is that the movie is quite like I had imagined it. And that's not much of a compliment...

Gonna watch Sabrina again.


P: Eu tenho que testar três heurísticas.
L: Três quem??
P: Três heurísticas.
L: Três quem??

Ha! Eu sempre soube que não era a única...
That makes me happy for the day.

Movie of the day: Roman Holiday.

Last January, in Orlando I pretty much freaked out at the Best Buy store. All of my favorite and adored movies and series in one place, and for much less money then they usually cost in Brazil!! I managed to hold up really well until on the last time we went there I had to get a box of Audrey Hepburn movies...

Today I finally watched Roman Holiday. I love it! So cute and so very much makes me want to buy my ticket today!!

(I actually wanted to watch the 1995 version of Sabrina, but I haven't bought that one yet... too bad.)

By the way, yesterday was great. I don't think I ever had such a nice and pleasant birthday...
