Blog break

All right! So because of all this musical thing and the new job and all I’ve decided that I need to take a break from blogging. It won’t be long, probably just a couple of days.

I like to keep the schedule with one post per day, but right now I can’t keep up with it, so I think it’ll be better to wait a couple of days and then see if I can get back to schedule!

Okay so I’m the kind of person who complains a lot

Best title of a post ever. I know.

We’re finally getting to a season where you can actually feel the sun when it’s shining. That’s good.

I’ve said it many times already, and I’ll say it again: I love summer.

The only problem about summer is that I’m allergic to pretty much every plant coming to life now. It’s not that bad yet, but I’m starting to feel the irritation in my eyes and my voice is also starting to fail me.

Every year I hope that my allergies have gone away over the winter, but they come back strong every year.

Okay. It’s not that bad. I know people who suffer way worse from allergies than me. If I just wash my hands and my face every time I go inside, I’m usually fine (when I take antihistamines that is). But I hate it anyway.

Not enough to make summer any less my favorite season. Okay, it’s not summer yet, but we’re slowly getting there.

Also.. It’s April 1st. What a shitty day.

Note to self: Trust no one.

Book vs Film

I’m beginning to re-read Life of Pi and I don’t even understand how I could forget how much I love that book. I think, when I’m done, that I’ll watch the movie again. I saw it in the theater when it came out and I loved it as much as the book.

Actually I just want to talk about the whole “the book is way better than the movie debate. Not necessarily about Life of Pi, but in general. I really hate the phrase even though I sometimes use it myself.

Should books and movies even be compared? I saw the Harry Potter movies before I read the books. Loved the movies. Then I talked to a friend of mine who just saw the movies recently (and who has read the books twice, as a child and recently). She said they were shit compared to the books and I just stood there and wondered if I felt the same.

Yes. The books have way more narrative volume. Obviously, I mean.. It’s a book. There’s always tons and tons of amazing details and sideplots in a book, which you can’t fit into a movie (Unless you want to make a complete 12 hour movie per book and no one has time and money for that).

Sometimes it really annoys me. Why can’t a movie be good just because it doesn’t “stick to the book.” I’ve rarely heard people complain when they’ve seen a play based on a novel. For some reason a director is allowed to interpret and creative their own story when it’s on a scene, but on a film set it’s almost illegal. Why?

Of course movies can sometimes turn out shitty, but usually they would have been bad whether they were based on a book or not.

I guess this was just a rant. Sorry.

FYI

Sometimes the world around me is crumbling. Of course it’s not actually crumbling, but it feels that way.

I start crying without really knowing why, because the pressure of something I don’t know what is gets too high. My heart beats with guilt, and my body feels weak of fatigue. Even when I don’t have anything to feel guilty about, and on days where I have no reason to feel fatigued.

I know part of the problem is, that I don’t exercise enough. Actually it might be the absolute biggest part of it. I’m lazy and even though I like taking a walk I rarely do so because I find it difficult to get out. It’s really just a matter of putting on a jacket and going outside, but it feels like I have to climb a mountain to do so. I know it will be better when it gets warmer. I hate being cold, so that’s also a factor right now.

It was easier back when I had a dog. Then I would go out and play with her (living in the countryside we rarely needed to walk her as she got plenty of exercise running around in our garden and in the fields).

I have to visit my sister more. She has a dog I can walk.

Scheduling posts

Hi!

So I’m just writing this because I thought it would make sense to do so.

And just to make clear what I’m doing with my posts on this blog, yeah!

I schedule most of my entries. Usually I’ll write them the day they’re posted and then schedule them to be posted at 16:30 in my local time. For me it’s a good way to have some structure and I like structure. And then sometimes I can schedule for another day and I’ll be sure something is posted every day.

Hopefully I can keep managing that!

Things.. Just things.

Things I hate:

  • Birds
  • Cows
  • Spiders
  • The fucking patriarchy
  • Did I say birds?
    • I mean, seriously. They’re so gross and obnoxious
  • When people set the volume to 24 or 26. Come on, guys. 25.
  • The word Glockenspiel. I’m sorry, but I really hate that word. I don’t hate the instrument though.
  • June 1st. No specific reason other than it’s always the most disappointing day of the year, because seasonal change doesn’t work like that.

 

Things I love:

  • All the puppies

 

I guess it’s one of those days.
