long time ago

One of my favorite short-stories in the world was published for the first time 30 years ago. I can't believe how time goes. It is called "Girl" and was written by Jamaica Kincaid. I love it because the very first time I read it, I wasn't sure of what I read. It is not complicated, it's unusual.. and lovely.
As it is really short, here it is. Please read it and tell me what you think.

Promise I'll post sooner. Things at school are not so over yet. Miss you guys!

quote of the day

Le charme, source de vie, comme le style, source d'écrire.

I know I've been's all because of school. I'm sorry.
But I'm glad to tell you that everything will be over next Thrusday. Well, I still have to go to school but no more papers or final exams. In this picture, Mona perfectly expresses how I feel.

Last Sunday, my mom and me went to the movies and as we were in the mall we decided to take a look. I found these beautiful things. Sales are barely starting, so I'll wait before I really hit the stores. I made my wish list, hoping to buy wisely, if such a thing is possible.

I started to read The Wedding by Elizabeth Rees but I didn't like it. I was excited with it because it was inspired in the Arnolfini Portrait by Jan van Eyck, which is a picture that I love. However, the book is really predictable and ends up being boring. I couldn't stand more than 5 chapters. There are lovely predictable books but the story is so cool that it doesn't matter. But this book it not that cool. I hate when I get disappointed. Well, I have more reading options.
To finish, I'm kniting again and I'm really happy for that.
ps. I cut my hair.

I'll check your blogs really soon. I miss you guys.

quote of the day

"I am not a cat person, Luce. I think people overwhelm pets with emotions they can't express to their friends. I'm sure most animals would prefer to be left alone."

tired of being beautiful

After her beauty session, Mona was really tired.

Chaucer and his tales cause sensation

A poem on the Canterbury Tales just because tomorrow I have an exam


'Whan that Aprille with his shoures soote
The droghte of March, hath perced to the roote..'
At the top of your voice, where you swayed on the top
of a stile,
Your arms raised- somewhat for balance, somewhat
To hold the reins of the straining attention
Of your imagined audience- you declaimed Chaucer
To a field of cows. And the Spring sky had done it
With its flying laundry, and the new emerald
Of the thorns, the hawthorn, the blackthorn,
And those bumpers of champagne
You snatched unpredictably from pure spirit.
Your voice went over the field towards Grantchester.
It must have sounded lost. But the cows
Watched, then approached: they appreciated Chaucer.
You went on and on. Here were reason
To recite Chaucer. Then came the Wfy of Bath
Your favorite character in all literature.
You were rapt. And the cows were enthralled.
They shoved and jostled shoulders, making a ring,
To gaze into your face, with occasional snorts
Of exclamation, renewed their astounded attention,
Ears angling to catch every inflection,
Keeping their awed six feet of reverence
Away from you. You just could not believe it.
And you could not stop. What would happen
If you were to stop? Would they attack you,
Scared by the shock of silence, or wanting more-?
So you had to go on. You went on-
And twenty cows stayed with you hypnotized.
How did you stop? I can't remember
You stopping. I imagine they reeled away-
Rolling eyes, as if driven from their fodder.
I imagine I shooed them away. But
Your sostenuto rendering of Chaucer
Was already perpetual. What followed
Found my attention too full
And had to go back into oblivion.

- Ted Hughes
