So… The Weekend’s Here!

Well, as I suspected, I haven’t had much time to blog lately, but that doesn’t mean life hasn’t been good! My schedule this semester is kind of nice for relaxing for some hours.

(I do miss you all, though!)

This weekend is meant for study time (nervous system, mechanisms and all…!), but I am willing to update you all with the wonders of my not so boring life.(Sense the sarcasm here?)

Anyhow, I finally got a new phone! It’s a Windows Phone and I have to get used to it. I only use Wi-Fi and apparently they don’t like that, so they punish me by taking my notifications away from me. I will not yield, guys! (I still have my iPad for posting and tweeting. So HA!) I still love it, though. It’s so nice and shiny! I have to buy a phone case.  😀

Also, remember how I said I wanted a job?

Well, while I was buying my phone I had to help the clerk to work some things out with another client. (He was also buying a Windows Phone) After I was done setting up my Microsoft account, I helped them, and the guy from the store asked me if I had experience with sales. I said no, but he said I could bring my resume anyway.

He asked me where I studied and what was my major. He also told me I could work with my schedule so I could study and stuff. When I went out, he asked me. Again…!!  I think there might be a chance, guys! I will probably give them my resume tomorrow. I am THAT excited. And it could be a good first job experience.

Wish me luck! I will probably blog again this weekend and tell you how everything goes. 🙂

This one doesn’t need much explaining. I must admit I hadn’t read of this before I watched The Princess Diaries, but it has become one of my favorites. I mean, it’s true! If you don’t want to feel bad, then don’t give them that luxury! Just keep on being the amazing person that you are. Don’t give a… well, you know. Enjoy life, and don’t let other people ruin it. Lord knows you deserve it! 😉

Classic Alice: An Amazing Transmedia Project

Hello, everyone.

Let’s talk business. Let’s talk about Classic Alice.

Classic Alice is a scripted vlog, written, starred, and created by Kate Hackett**, about a college student that decides to live her life according the plots of classic books. Alice Rackham received a B- in one of her college projects, and thought that was a bad grade, a disaster. Her professor said she didn’t connect to the book enough, that she didn’t emotionally get it. So she makes this decision.

**She’s a genius.

 Her friend, Andrew Prichard *insert swooning here*

… needed a documentary for his senior college project and convinces Alice to “live her life.. one book at a time.” She starts with Crime and Punishment, and… well… saying anything else would be spoiling the show for you.

I got obsessed with this show a while ago, when some actors from the Emma Approved series appeared on one of their episodes. I was curious… and it was so much more than I imagined. I’m pretty sure I watched all the show’s episodes in one night. It was that good. I approve the binge watching Classic Alice project. 🙂

Alice is such a relatable character. I could somehow see myself doing something like that, and taking those decisions. The ways the books are adapted to life are amazing, and I have wanted to read along with them for a while. The actors (Kate Hackett, Tony Noto and Elise Cantu) make it look real, and weekly confessionals help you to know more about what’s happening. The storylines are written to perfection. 🙂

Guys… there is more. Classic Alice is a transmedia show. (kind of like Emma Approved and The Lizzie Bennet Diaries…) This basically means the characters interact with you along the way. (Tweeting, on Tumblr, commenting on the videos, you name it. They even have a podcast named Pens and Lens) Isn’t this amazing?? I must admit I got really happy when Alice added me as a friend on Goodreads! 😀 It is nice to be part of this. (Even if it’s such a small part.)

This show also has a purpose and a message. It’s encouraging people to read more, to interpret what they read, and to just aspire to be a better person and connect with people. 🙂

You must be wondering: How can I start watching this masterpiece? It’s easy. You can subscribe HEREYou can watch their Classic Alice- The Entirety playlist HERE.

Okay, guys, here’s the fun part: They’re crowd-funding for Books 8 and Beyond. This means that you could help Classic Alice to keep going, and to be better. This is important. You get perks for funding, and you also get perks by referring people! http://igg.me/at/SaveAlice 

Don’t worry if you can’t help financially. (I haven’t been able to, either…) But I am asking you, amazing people from the internet, to give this amazing show a chance. It is so worth it. And I can assure you… you will love this show… if you give it a chance. Help us #SaveAlice.

Silent End: My First (And probably last) attempt at Poetry.

Hello! I wrote this for an English assignment last semester, and I thought I could share it with you. It’s not good, I’m aware. Poetry is not my forte…! 😀 But still… I wrote it, and it’s related to my biggest fear: being alone. My classmates had some other interpretations…


Your heart is racing

Your muscles are tingling

But you just can’t run away

You’re paralyzed.

Your breaths are shallow

Your mouth is dry

No words can fall out of your mouth

You are just standing there

Your life is about to end

Yet your mind cannot work its way out

No last words

No one to hear them, anyway.

You’re alone

In the end of the world

Your biggest fear

Right in front of you.

Your time is almost done

There is no one left to hear you

So you just stay silent

Waiting for the nightmare to begin.

Short update!

Hola!

This is a really short update… So I guess this is new enough for my assignment of Blogging 101… xD


Well, I’m here. Back from my first week (or two days) back at Uni. News? Well, I’m taking classes with all but one of the professors I took classes with last semester. That’s nice. They already know me, I already know them, and I know what to expect. (except for my Chem lab professor. I really need to imporve my performance there.)

I also haven’t completely realized that I’m actually back. A month and a half of freedom can do that to you. I have basically been chilling, watching TV shows and procrastinating. I need to “break the cycle”, as my English professor said today. I need to go back on track.

And I will. Soon. I promise.

I have been recently nominated (3 times :D) for the Versatile Blogger Award. Seriously, I can’t even start to thank you for appreciating this piece of my soul I’ve been sharing with you all. It’s nice and kind of incredible to know people remember my posts and possibly like them. 🙂
