It's been years now, since I have posted on this blog.
Due to some talks that I randomly had with friends today, I started thinking on how life was before uni. It was troubled of course, but other kinds of trouble, which today may even seam meaningless. In fact, it is as I almost have no other memory than of those of the trips that I took during that periode. Now that I am walking down memory lane, I wish I had photos of my high school days, but I have very few. Here are 10 souvenirs from some of my trips, before I entered mayhem aka uni.
"Hate is a bottomless cup; I will pour and pour"
We did a mock trial on "Medea" at class and I was in the minority of those whom were defending her.
"You can't find someone, who doesn't want to be found"
House of the Spirits, Isabel Allende
read it in my first year of highschool, I liked it cause I hadn't read anything like that before; but after this one I didn't read anything else from magic realism, cause well those books are like 500+ pages with family dilemas, sounds more like a well written telenovela.
The Old Man and the Sea - Ernest Hemingway
So I was in Venice this September and found out that, I really can't afford to have a caffe' at Caffe' Florian, where Hemingway use to pour down his throat rum or whatever.
"When reason fails, the devil helps!"
Crime and Punishment- Fyodor Dostoyevsky
Unofficial springbreak in Italy to read for one week the book in the countryside.
"As phantom frighten beasts when shadows fall"
Inferno- Dante Aligeri
Oh all those nice tricks with the numbers.
The perks of being a Wallflower- Stephen Chobosky
And so I was fifteen.....
The Alchemist- Paolo Coelho
Hope and Dreams and loosing faith in humanity.
"I cannot make you understand. I can not make anyone understand what is happening inside me. I can not even explain it to myself."
Metamorphosis- Franz Kafka
And than I found true love.
(in US territory, oh the border problems and oh those visa issues)
"Since we are all going to die, it's obvious that when and how don't matter"
The Stranger- Albert Camus
So everytime the sun is shining so brightly....
"The government can catch a hare with a oxcart!"
The Palace of Dreams- Ismail Kadare
I should have read it meanwhile trying to sketch out Gjirokastra
And when I switched from trolley to backpacks
I make an effort on writing postcards for friends and family (that's what I am doing there), but now that I think about it, I have written a lot of those but mailed fewer.
"Inside of us there is something that has no name, that something is what we are"
Blindness- Jose' Saramango
How did I do on my architecture entry test, will I get enrolled
*I really should do something about the layout of this blog
