Happpppppy birthday Shanna!!!!!! I love you



Exam this morning and I slept like shit last night, had all kinds of absolutely terrifying nightmares. I just remember a sense of being alone forever and a really large sense of despair.

I wrote my final english-exam today and was sooo nervous.
I slept like crap and I felt really sick but then we were finally handed out the topics:

Topic 1: An Extract from Shakespeare - A Midsummer Night's Dream

Topic 2: An article from the magazine TIME about facebook&Mark Zuckerberg... guess what I chose Wink

Anyone who's a native non-english speaker and manages to get the hang of Shakespeare deserves a medal.

That makes me kinda proud Wink

Movies tend to help.

Let me be ta'en. Let me be put to death.
I am content, so thou wilt have it so.
I’ll say yon grey is not the morning’s eye.
'Tis but the pale reflex of Cynthia’s brow.
Nor that is not the lark, whose notes do beat
The vaulty heaven so high above our heads.
I have more care to stay than will to go.
Come, death, and welcome! Juliet wills it so.

That's cool, Dina, even though I don't what are you talking about. Explain? Laughing

At this point, I think I'm beyond hating people, I just absolutely despise everyone around me in an absolutely horrible way. This day has just been depressing and that fact is just making me angry now. hash

That's this blog Dianna started and now you can even get a Newsletter everyday which is amazing.
It's just a bunch of people sharing inspiring things really.
And I send a submission yesterday (I think.. or the day before that - anyway!) and this morning I had a mail-response where it said:

Quote :
Hi Dina!
Thank you so much for this lovely contribution, we liked it so much that we decided to make it our newsletter for tomorrow. People will receive it first thing when they wake up smile Thanks for a lovely reminder!
Cheers and sunshine,
Chelsea

And today they really made my submission the topic of the Newsletter - and it's a bit embarassing how much that excites me but - who cares Wink

They have this header, added this picture and then comes the text so it looks pretty much like this:

Quote :

When we read this recent submission from Dina, one thing in particular stuck out to us...."We may not find revolutionary new truths, but we can tell our own ones in a way that only we can." This is wonderful, enjoy:

Dear Charlies –

I think all songwriters (or writer in general) know the feeling of just running in circles with their work. Of getting nowhere at all and just repeating yourself - repeating the rhymes or the melody. When somehow everything feels like your copying an older version of the same message, you already told.
A very dear band has a song that begins with the following lines (loosely translated):

“When everything is said and you’re running out of words and the rhymes and the punctuations and most of it is a repetition or means nothing, then every sentence must be a decision;
and no sentence, no word, not even a comma written, just to be written.
There are no lines anymore, that haven’t been written before, so write them in a way, that they at least are necessary for you.

Saying everything, that can be said with the words and the few chords that you have and then starting all over again and searching for something that is true and that seemingly nobody else knows.”
(Locas In Love – vs Kong)

We may not find revolutionary new truths, but we can tell our own ones in a way that only we can. And maybe only we understand.

So, Charlies, when you write, write in a way that means something for YOU. Maybe thousands of artists already wrote a love-song describing the situation you’re in, but write yours in a way, that is for you. That helps you and moves you and is you.

Make the decision to really mean what you write and never stop.

x Dina

Visit You, Me & Charlie to get your day off on the right foot
