Life is sometimes surprising and sometimes it lingers a tad in the surreal territory, but very few of us stop and enjoy that particular ride. For those of you brave enough to go deep into the rabbit's hole, A Clockwork Orange is a must.

The proverbial crossroads is becoming a multidimensional ramification of highways that mostly lead to despair, hate, broken hopes and endless days of anguish and irritation triggered by everyone and everything that stands in your way...oh the horror...for those around you...
There are persons that treat these situations with calm and tact...I'm not one of them...when I try my best to bring the people around me as close to happiness as one can possibly get and as a result I receive only reproaches and black mornings, I get really upset and then I get mad, then I get furious, then I get angry at persons that have no link to my currently considered state of mind (which by the way, has repercussions on my entire body, when I get upset, my whole organism gets upset with me, it's a collective effort...lucky me). When I have these days of mental thunder I need something to calm my nerves down, something to neutralize the pain of the haunting thoughts, something that brings the awaited serenity back (supposing that there was one before the storm), therefore I turn to the one part of our world that I always like, no matter what...I turn to the seventh art, I turn to Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter...and Spring.

Hei, yeah you...where do you live? In a dorm room? Do you like it? Does a pleasant smell and friendly faces welcome you when you come from tiring and amazingly extremely useless and boring classes or from a job you hate but you need, or from the worst date of your life?...No?! Does it smell like a no-cleaning-lady-in-the-weekends-bathroom down the narrow and working-light-ball-less hall way, or like French fries and mould and after a scribbled door used by many, many others before you, you get into a dark and freaking-hot-in-the-spring/summer or Greenland-cold-in-the-winter room, with not much space for a computer and a table to eat on?!...well...you'll eventually have a home all on your own, where it won't be so dirty and so not yours, where you can open a window to get a breath of fresh air without upsetting anyone, where your bathroom is yours and only yours, where nobody will urge you three times a day to buy toilet paper, where you won't get your door almost beaten down at 4 o'clock in the morning by a bunch of merry dudes singing carols in the middle of October, where you'll remember the dorm years as your youth's funniest moments.
Jeremiah (the Red-eared Slider Turtle from Florida) got a very interesting addition to his cozy aquarium today...a house with many holes in which he can play all day long. I don't know where he gets the energy, but he "slides" in the water non-stop, eats as much as a small cat would (although he's less than 5 centimeters long and doesn't weigh more than 200 grams :) ). If you get a baby turtle, if you really want one, you have to really love it and take great care of it and buy it special turtle menus to find out what kind of food it likes and give it the necessary vitamins and keep it's swimming water clean etc. etc. etc....it's a lot of work and you have to do it, unless you want your newly bought pet to die an undeserved death.
It's great to have a home fit for your needs, it's great to have friendly faces that greet you when you want to be greeted, it's no that great if you live in an horrible and hateful place and you have no choice but to express your frustrations by creating irony at any cost, with Quills and wits.

It's funny how life can transcend in an instance from promissing to a worm hole straight to the proverbial hell...but that's good (afterwards, because it teaches you many things and it thickens your skin just enough to help you pass the terribly suffocating anguish of unfair defeat).
Do!: take advantage of any conversation from which you feel you'll sponge some interesting information, involve yourself in impossible projects (as long as they are mind challenging and pocket-emptying-free), hope and dream, read as much as you can, enjoy nature while you still can, be nice to animals, have friends, watch movies, what you like as long as you don't hurt anyone (that includes yourself).
Don't!: willingly physically or mentally hurt yourself (it's not worth it...you do not know how long your life is, so it doesn't make any sense do deliberately shorten it, you cannot know what you might miss), be a jerk (not even with jerks), try to change stubborn persons' opinions (even if you are 100% right, you won't succeed and you'll get a stomach ache in the process), get upset when you don't win (when I won I was happy then unhappy, when I lost I was furious then serene, it's not all black and white, it's a very special shade of ochre).
Winning isn't really everything, losing isn't really the end, nothing is that easily defined and categorized when it comes to us simple/complicated/odd beings.
Win/lose...it does not matter…just have fun...Little Miss Sunshine!

So, we live to physically exist, we paint, write books and make movies to artistically exist, we blog to on-line exist, we constantly adapt and cover the new communication "pipes", to prove that we exist and hopefully "be" through them even when we stop existing.
It's all a dream, a powerful dream a Requiem for a dream and we are all in The Dreamers state of mind.

Ideas like in the new Vodafone 3G spots, plus the dynamic and clean execution, are those that give us hope, hope that a revolutionary or at least a "wow" idea will come our way too.
But, enough beating it a round the bush, the issue here is the repositioning of a "since 1991" Romanian cosmetics brand, that has a certain amount of prestige in the country, also its sales are going quite nicely. This reminds me of the time when George from Seinfeld didn't know what career change to make after he had insulted his boss and quit his job; he kept naming things he thought he liked or thought he was good at and didn't come up with one valid solution.
Right now I'm in the same predicament, I peered into a good (with the potential of becoming a great) idea, but I cannot get it to grow into a wow.
Hope the muses will come though...if I only were a genius...see Amadeus, it really shows you the pain of idea conceiving and implementing.

Ah, almost forgot, if your turtle swims kind of skewed and cannot hold its balance in the water, it might have pneumonia. In this case keep the water temperature between 26 and 28 degrees Celsius and place the aquarium in a draft less place. For great advice about turtles you should go here.

From our mother's womb to our death bed (or street corner) most of us suffer and strive. In Zimbabwe they don't even have money to die, families abandon their loved and sick ones in hospitals because they haven't got a cent. Orphans drug themselves in the sewers and die before 30. People are so lonely that they bye human shaped wallpaper just to keep themselves company, many persons leave their entire fortune to their dogs or roosters because they have nobody else.
We watch comedies, we go out with friends, we kiss our children goodnight, we cry at funerals, we read the books that people that we consider smarter read, we look at the sky when there's a meteor shower. Life is beautiful, life is sad, life is easy, life is hard, life is ours, life is short, life is individually uniquely defined and universally equally perceived.
What we do can be judged, criticised, disapproved, counteracted; who we are can be denied, hated, liked or loved, what we become depends only on us.
Lonely hearts have to say Paris je t'aime before all your base are belong to us and they become Idiots singing anybody seen my baby.
Define and live your life as you wish, but don't hurt anyone in the process ;).
Hope you'll have less annoying situations in your life! Best wishes from a tired forehead!

Reader, yes you, may you have a lot of merry, non boring events in your small and probably useless-for-others life ;)!

I a have a Florida Red-eared Slider (Trachemys Scripta Elegans) , its name is Jeremiah and I absolutely adore him. He was my 21st birthday present and it was love at first sight. I was obsessed with frogs before, now I'm infatuated with turtles. My friends say I'm mad and I agree, but when I'm passionate about something I really go the extra mile. I even joined a turtle forum so that I can provide Jeremiah with the best care and support he can get in a home.
You should think really carefully before getting a reptile as a pet, they are very sensitive. I got Jeremiah as a present but before I could figure out exactly what to do and how to do it, he got a little sick; I had to change his living environment and take him to the doctor. So get extremely well informed about the pet you wish to purchase, because when you get one, you became responsible for another life than your own, and that's a serious job.
