hi guys sorry i havent written for a while, ive just kind of had writers block, if you will. so in the past week, ive felt surrounded by tragedy. that time when it feels like death is everywhere you turn. i would say i hope you never go through it, but i cant because everyone has to and in time, everyone will. the boston bombings, the shooter, the earthquake in china, the earthquake in iran, the building crash in mumbai, i just want it to stop. the boston shooter was the most awful because honestly that guy was still a teenager and thinking about someone so young wanting to kill others is really, really scary. also i think he was probably more scared than anything else. who knows why he did such awful things? and then he tried to kill himself. just goes to show; he was scared. anyway enough about that i dont want to take anyone back to a dark place. so that week was a pretty unpleasant time but im totally over it.
so i said id tell you what happens, aannnnnnnddddd...................................................................................... i got chosen! yup. i will be walking the ramp on 23rd june ;) *fist pump* so i thought it'd be hard but they just played some music, i walked a few steps turned, walked back, stop, pose, done! oh but wait, you guys havent heard the BIG NEWS. im anemic. i guess its not really rare or shocking but still. i dont even know anyone else who's anemic. :( so in case you dont know what anaemia is, it means i have very very little hemoglobin in my blood. hemoglobin carries oxygen around, and also makes the blood look red, since it has iron and iron is red so a lack of hemoglobin makes me tired and pale. how does this affect my life? it doesnt, really. i just have to take a lot of supplements and medicines :( but even that isnt so bad, i got one tablet during lunch (yes, during, its hard to digest so) two after dinner and this weird powder thing i have to drink with milk twice a week. also im not really supposed to exert much but thats just silly. so its been exactly two weeks since i last posted. nothing really happened in school except we got a ton of homework, sweated like pigs for the last few days before summer, the prefect elections, (i didnt get chosen and im bummed out but whatever) and now its summer!!






and after all that comes 'Of Black Boots And Awful Coffee' :)
im currently sitting snuggled up under the covers in a little bed somewhere in italy. i should be asleep or at least really tired, because today morning we went to this amazingly epic cave, thats around ten million years old and is completely filled with stalactites and stalagmites. it was 11 degrees inside, and that temperature stays constant for the entire year. the cave was formed ages ago by a huge river that used to flow underground. the cave is dry now (except for all the rainwater dripping through the ceiling) because the river dried up and other stuff. some of the stalagmites are still growing, like there was loads of rainwater dripping down on them. we saw only a little part of the cave cause not all of the caves are open to public. apparently they found prehistoric human remains in one of the caves :O so. cool. :D thats all ive seen so far apart from this gorgeous little castle by the sea :) awesome place for photography that. we checked out this mall too, which was EPIC. i mean it was like too much awesome stuff for one place! i fell in love with like two million dresses, boots, jackets, scarves, eye shadows, necklaces, earrings, etc... all i bought was one seriously cute neon green top and a ring. i bought the same one for my best friend but shhhhh dont tell her, its a surprise :D *sneaky grin* :p
so far im loving italy. the food is SO DARN GOOD. :p and its really gorgeous outside when its sunny. we've had about four sunny days so far. the rainy ones are AWFUL! it gets really depressing. i spent the entire (rainy) day yesterday eating yogurt and watching youtube (read danisnotonfire) videos in my pajamas. but that depression was caused by something much, much worse than the rain.
i had a chance to see green day live in concert. *jaws hit the floor* i kid you not, one of the venues of their world tour is minutes away from my hotel. why on earth am i not going, you ask?? yup, you guessed its late at night and my parents gave me a nice big fat round resounding NO. i cried for ages but im feeling better now. the worst part is, i will be able to hear the concert. (btw, if you dont know what green day is, GO TO YOUTUBE NOW!!!) the people here are oh so different from indians. more self respecting, more satisfied, just generally nicer :) i think that comes from them being generally less needy. so ive kind of vowed to be nicer when i get back :) i saw the perks of being a wallflower. it was so brilliant!!! i loved it so much :) it was so honest, and moving and beautifully made :) i cried a bit.... i think that story is going to stay with me for a very very long time. i started reading the book today. and when i got to the point where charlie lists some of his favorite songs i sat and listened to all of them, and it was like- a revelation! im serious. i just realized what trash ive been listening to all my life :p i love the song scarborough fair by simon and garfunkel. it makes you think, it makes you feel farm, it makes you love, it makes you want to dream. and smells like teen spirit by nirvana makes you want to rebel and challenge anyone who ever tried to hold you back and swallow up every roller-coaster minute of your teenage days :D so yeah, my new favourite songs, my new favourite movie and i dont know what my new favourite book is :p there are a lot of books i have to read like mark of athena, the perks of being a wallflower, the fault in our stars, divergent, the lying game. pretty little liars, and a lot of classics like how to kill a mockingbird and more..... sorry if im boring you but i need to make a list somewhere or ill just be too confused :p i just like doing that. calms me down :) anyway i dont really know what to say now so byeeee
no wait, CIAO :D <3
