Am I invisible?

Yeaaah.

No, wait.

There has always been this problem around me. Depression and stuff grew so much onto me that I usually felt I’m invisible. They didn’t notice me on the streets, usually bumped into me, and always I was the one who didn’t have place on photos. People couldn’t even memorize my name, even though it is not that complicated, and also it is kind of old, easy, and I’m really happy that I didn’t get my name after the antagonist of a popular soap opera. People usually were/are so bad at remembering my name that they usually gave me new ones, the only thing that managed to stuck into their heads was the initial ‘A’, that has always been the only thing they remembered and I got my new names based on that. Even my psychologist (can you see the irony?) had a hard time remembering my name.

I sat right in front of him and he started, “Well, dear Andrea!” I couldn’t bear it anymore so I interrupted
“It’s Adrienn!”
“Excuse me, what is it?”
“I said, it’s Adrienn!”
“Oh, alright sorry Adrienn!” Then we kept talking for a maximum of five munites without any problem. Bang!
“So, dear Anette!”
“It’s Adrienn!!”
“Oh, sorry again…”

Now I mean can you really see the irony? After that had happened I almost expected to someone eventually call me Arshole. Really, I mean they always got the ‘A’ right, and nothing else. But I had to realise that this never will happen. And as for an extra gift today I got a letter from a site I signed up with the purpose of finding a job, I checked it I still have a valid account with my full name. I have to say I hardly read their messages as they are mostly spams but something caught my attention this time:

“Dear, First Name!”

C’mon! That doesn’t even start with an ‘A’! Oh, and by the way, thanks for the another brick to build my new self on! 😉

Monday Monkey and the Year of the Goat

I am a Goat, no wait, that didn’t sound that ridiculous in my head. I was born in the Year of the Goat according to the Chinese horoscope.

On the very first day in this new year, exactly 20 February, my prayers were heard by someone and I goat got! a job! Yay! *-*

Yep, I got it on Friday, and I’m telling you only now! I know I’ve been bad, but to tell the truth, it is not only that I was afraid of shouting my luck away but also because recently I got a little out of inspiration.

Probably, or I think so, this is because I started living my life out of my head. I don’t only dream and create my world only inside my head but I’ve actually started living it. I am blogging, instead of locking everything up inside me, and I found job, because I (had and) wanted to. These are pretty great for me, I know, but I have to say, I feel a little lost now. I didn’t lose interest in writing my stories I just find it a little bit diffcult now. But I think as soon as I get used to the job, I will be quite the same again.

No, no. I’m not depressed, I am just exhausted. I was lucky enough to have the chance to study my job before I actually start it and it turned out – okay I’ve always known it – that I’m really bad at multi-tasking. I’m not a smart phone after all, and besides my phone is one the dumbest ones. But the point is that I’m certain I’m going to do the job well, while somehow manage to go on with my blog. It’s not that I won’t have time to write, but I possibly won’t have time to think. At least for a while.

I wasn’t about to post anything today but I just bumped into this quotation, and okay, let it speak for itself:

“Successful people are those, who not only do their job great, but also they are doing it when they don’t fell like it and even when others can’t see them.”

Emil Tonk (Translation by me)

Basically, this is what reminded me that I love blogging, and it works as a therapy for me better than anything else, and even if I feel a little bit stuck it doesn’t mean that I should end it. That option didn’t even popped into my mind! It only means that I have to try out something different that would fresh it, and also myself, up.

*jumping around the room out of happiness* Is it really Monday?

A Poem by my Boyfriend

From June 2013 during an exhausting exam period. I think most us know the pressure well. 😀

And since it’s Valentine’s Day, I thought I’d share this little pieve of cuteness 🙂 Hugs! ❤

To my love

I’m not quite sure why I wrote this,
Maybe in the hope of a kiss.
There are a few exams still left
And it’s indeed a pain in the ass.
But after everything is done
We will be together having some fun! 
Here is a kind poem for you
(This is new for me too.)
It prevents you from being blue.

In this poem, it might be my goal
To take care of your fragile soul.
If I accomplish this aim,
On Facebook, I shall have a little fame.

Please forgive me if this poem is lame,
For the mistakes and bad rhymes, I have no shame.
This poem ends now, I know you’re relieved,
And I hope the message of it is well received.

Where Did The Purple Pig Come From?

If you haven’t read the story itself, you can do it by clicking here.

I have been taught at university that every (art)work we create, let it be writing, music, painting, or sculpting or anything else, reflects our souls, deepest fears and desires even those, which we may not be aware of. Concerning this, I don’t intend to analyse the story this deeply as I think it is quite understandable. In this post, I would like to write about the inspiration and discoveries I made after I wrote Purple.

Today, in the age of technology where everyone has smartphones I’m sure most of you would recognise this game:

4_1391340982219

 

(Yes, this game is Pou and again, yes it’s a pig with it.) Though, I’m not really keen on these modern gadgets, I have a smartphone but one of the dumbest ones (and I’m sure it hates me, really). So, whenever I had to wait for a longer time, e.g at the doctor or for the bus, I played this game and I thought it would be more interesting if they would finally reach a place on the other side of one of the hills. This is where the idea of villages came from. The other directions of the Crossroads appeared in my mind unintentionally, one after the other.

The pig itself, though it cannot be seen on the photo above, is purple, and that is the thing that makes the story fantasy or fairy tale. To be honest, I don’t know why I coloured it purple because actually, I don’t really like that colour. Or at least I didn’t, now I’m not sure. But for some reason, I stuck to the purple pig being the catalyst in the story and I had no idea why. Just imagine, if it was a horse for example, that would be no fantasy but a mere horror.

So, after I wrote the story, I made a little research and found that the colour purple actually represents enlightenment, power, ambition, also mystery, magic, independence and wisdom, and several similar stuff. While pigs, usually represent virility and fertility. So, I realised that is why it comes from Own Town where people are independent and magical and possess a great amount of knowledge and also that is why it always escapes, going on its own way. Thus, thinking about it more, I figured that the purple pig actually represents fate, that cannot be controlled (at least not easily) and sometimes hits us without any advance warning.

So basically, inspiration is a very mysterious thing, it usually comes from nowhere or strange situations (like in my case with this very uhm…lol game) and you can decide if you ignore it, or grab it and create something unique that comes from your very soul.
