Words

Seeing as I am new to Tumblr, and relatively new to blogging as a whole, I was very surprised at something that happened this evening. Let me explain:
On Tumblr, I am currently following http://tylerknott.com/. He is a poet, a very good one may I add; today I contacted him telling him he was hot. 😛
I wasn’t expecting a reply of course. I thought, he was too good to bother replying to someone like me, but he did 😀
And so he inspired me to write today’s blog.

I am so surprised that words have such a big impact in my life. I am a softie at heart, so the clichéd ‘i love you’ from my boyfriend will make my skin tingle. But poetic phrases and sentences which have been thought out and deeply considered can be one of the most beautiful things in the world.

Been An Ear

For each
and every one
else
I’ve always been
an ear.
Somehow
with you
since the start
and for the first time
in my
life
I remembered
that sometimes
it’s perfectly
acceptable
to be
the mouth
and to hear the sound
of your own voice,
shaky as it
may be,
once
again.

Goodnight dear bloggers

Dreams

Fact: we only dream of what we know. Our dreams are frequently full of strangers who play out certain parts – did you know that your mind is not inventing those faces – they are real faces of real people that you have seen during your life but may not know or remember? The evil killer in your latest dream may be the guy who pumped petrol into your dad’s car when you were just a little kid. We have all seen hundreds of thousands of faces throughout our lives, so we have an endless supply of characters for our brain to utilize during our dreams.

I was chatting to my dear boyfriend yesterday about my blog and he said I should think of subjects, from time to time, to write about, and since I recently reblogged the above on Tumblr, I decided what better topic to write about than dreams.

There are two main types of dreams and although I began to write about those which occur while one sleeps, I shall continue expressing my views about the other kind. Dreams, goals, ambitions.  We all have them, they just differ hugely. My goals would be: ace these GCSEs, get good Alevels and merk life at uni… but these aren’t dreams. I don’t know what my dreams are, I just hope I’ll aspire to do bigger things later in life.

P.s. I’ve decided love doesn’t exist for everyone, but that calls for another blog.

Peace out bloggerss

Some have completely the wrong idea of blogging

On Tumblr, http://www.theatlantic.tumblr.com, I read a post which went a bit like this…

“I loathe blogs when I look at them. Blogs look to me illiterate, they look hasty, like someone babbling. To me writing is a considered act. It’s something which is a great labor of thought and consideration. A blog doesn’t seem to have any literary merit at all. It’s a chatty account of things that have happened to that particular person.”

I was disgusted! Blogs may not be nationally published or sold in bookstores but not everything written has to be thought out or deeply considered. Some great ideas and opinions come from chain of thought and that is what blogs are. The ability to write about one’s life which can be referred to by others is an art in its own right. I was not saying the writer of this post was wrong; I guess it is just matter of opinion.

On a merrier note, my destination for the summer of 2011 has been confirmed: Albufeira, Algarve, South Portugal. I’m so excited and wish it could come around sooner!
