Love Makes A Difference

I have recently found a diary of mine from 2013. I was 15. This is a page from it:

love me so much
that I could compare your love to the immensity of pi.
do not be as heartless as a stone:
spell my name on a sleepy tone,
as if there no end had to be.

There were also some quotes from the songs that I used to listen back then and I guess I just tried to make a connection between them:

and If you love me, I’ll make you a star in my universe and you’ll spend everyday shining your light my way;
and if the world was on fire, no one could save me but you.
and then it would only be you who I would like to run with, to laugh with, to be silent with, to cry with,
it would only be you who I would like to hope with, it would only be you who I would like to forgive with.

I was really trying to rememeber whom I loved so much and who could awake such strong feelings in my heart. But now I understand that this does not matter at all if that person is not in my life now. Do you know what matters? The way he made me feel. The things that I learnt from the experience. The drama. The happiness. Everything.

Teenagers. Teenage love. Is it really so different from the so-called „adult love”? Aren’t adults behaving like children or teenagers when they fall in love? Have you ever seen a man being nervous at the first date? Or a woman? I have surely seen. Love does not have an age. You do love at 3, you do love at 15, you do love at 35 and you do love at 80. The only difference is the approach of it.

To My Dearest Friend

My dearest one,

You always had the courage to step on unknown, wild and illusory realms. They were beyond all appearances. You unconsciously crossed the boundary and you did not even know where you were. But you were quite and you were patient even if what you saw was a world dying. You were shocked and hurt but you kept being tranquil as you knew that there had to be a sunshine to calm the storm. There were forests and buildings burning, there were not oblivions or distances between that realm and other ones, as there were people who had destroyed the borders between my territory and their’s. And my world was on fire. You found me in the middle of it, fighting with those who kept hitting me, as hard as they could. You looked at me struggling and you realized I did not even know what I was doing. Self-defense? Vital?

You looked at those who were sitting in front of me, laughing like wild animals, thinking that they had their justice. They killed everything that was alive in my soul, leaving it homeless. And they were laughing. You could not believe your eyes when you saw that I started to undress and threw my clothes, the white dress and the violet flowers coronet, into the fire. You realized that I had the hope of feeling relieved. You kept analysing, thinking and trying to find a way to get me out of there.

How Love Feels Like

The Internet is overwhelmed by articles about love, its manifestations, how to find love and other topics. Today, we talk about adolescent love in a comparative variant: how do girls love vs. how do boys love.

At a simple search in the dictionary, the first definition we find is that love involves a feeling of affection for someone or something. Nothing easier. Now, if we give this feeling a sexual aura, we get fixed to the love that interests us, the love of a couple (no matter what sexes this couple implies).

In adolescence, everything that happens to us is a controversy, a reason for revolt or ecstasy. Especially when it comes to girls.

Aww, she smiled, I’m sure I’m gonna marry this year!
Oh, no, I have a pimple in my chin, my boyfriend will not kiss me anymore, and I’ll stay alone all my life!

Typical things about vagina carries at the age at which our hormones make an agonizing boom.

Reffering to boys, I think it’s obvious that adolescence for them is as if somebody gives them superhuman powers, they become dominant and very masculine, they fall in love or secretly conquer a girl.

Dress How You Want to Be Addressed… Or Do not?

Dress how you want to be addressed… or do not do so?

We meet hundreds of people everyday in our lives. We see the old woman with her old bag, we notice the girl wearing her expensive shoes and we also observe the poor homeless at the corner of the street, who wears a lifetime jacket. What do we think about them? „Oh, this woman needs someone to buy her a bag” or „Oh, such nice shoes! I should talk to her, she might be a nice person” or maybe „Oh, this beggar is so dirty, I should totally stay away from him”? Are these our thoughts? I might say, yes, they are. In most of the cases. But we are totally wrong. This planet is totally falling down because of its people and because of their judgements and beliefs.

Talk to Me About Peterhof, Please

I was walking on that large street, called Pravlenskaya Street, in Peterhof, a town in Russia, wondering if I would ever get tired of that city. I had been living there for almost 5 years at that moment and I, literally, loved every single inch of it. With my headphones on my head, listening to my favourite Tsoi’s song „Gruppa Krovi” („Blood Type”), I stopped on that street looking around and realizing how much I wanted the time to stop. I was just ignoring the fact that in some weeks I would be far away from my beloved city. I had no idea how I would fill the emptiness in my heart, so I decided to continue walking, trying to keep intacly in my memory images of every corner of every street, of every building and of every bench on which I had ever sat on.

Consider Love

“Sex is the consolation you have when you can’t have love.” – Gabriel Garcia Márquez

When was the last time you stopped to actually consider if you know what love is?

We’ve been taught to wish for it, to long for it and wait for it all our lives. We’ve been told that love is the biggest power and the undoing of many great people – it is the sweet fragrant wind that cradles the birds in its warm hands as they reach out towards the clear blue sky, it is the righteous anger of the river bursting its banks with the strength of a furious bull. A world of its own, right and wrong in equal parts, “Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.” (1 Corinthians 13:4-8)

Is it only me, or does that sound really hard to uphold?

2017 Is about Diversity

I’m pretty sure you have been looking for something new to wear this year. I have recently went shopping and I was just surprised that the clothes this year are so much different from 2016’s. Then, I came home and started browsing and reading everything about 2017’s fashion.

Well, I know everyone wants to be in trend, to look fine and to feel comfortable in their own clothes and skin. Sometimes it is really hard to combine clothes and accessories if you do not really know what people wear nowadays. But don’t worry, this year’s trends are not so „new” as they seem to be, as they have already been trends years ago. Thereby, if you do not know what to wear and how to match the clothes with the shoes and with the accessories, you can easily ask your parents or your grandparents. Let’s find out why.

We’ll always Have Casablanca

Casablanca in the 40’s was the city of hope and despair, a meeting place for those seeking adventure, for fugitives and for people who risk its life in this deceitful oasis, hoping that a new life awaits them on American land. This is the fascinating background on which an unperishable love story unfolds its last pages and with it one of the greatest stories of the silver screen.
