An intersection

Hi all <3 
This used to be a school lead blog, but now I no longer have to do posts for that teacher so I don't have to have a blog for school, but I liked this blog so much that I have decided to prolong it so if you have any need for advice from me just contact me

So this week, I am going to do something very personal because we all go through them at some point or another in our lives. I might make this post shorter because it's difficult, but it needs to be talked about.
Breakups happen for reasons sometimes unknown and they are so very emotionally painful, sometimes it can leave someone feeling broken and dead inside and most people think that when it happens all the people want to talk about is the breakup, but let me tell you, THAT IS NOT THE CASE!
Talking about it is painful and it makes the person cry so whatever you do, DON'T bring it up.
When it first happens, people often want to talk about it because they want to make sense of what just happened, but after a day of people constantly asking or offering condolences, it just gets tiring and brings up unnecessary emotions and isn't really good.
Being alone for a day or two is also really helpful, but the transition into normal social environment becomes difficult because you have those people who don't understand what you're going through.
It's really mourning the death of a relationship and like regular deaths no one truly understands what you're going through even though they have gone through it before no one can understand what your feelings are.
Hanging out with friends or family helps more than people think, but also it hurts so you have to find a balance between friends and family and being alone.
But past is the past and once that is accepted one can truly move towards the future.

Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare

It's been rant posts for the past three posts and I apologize for that. I haven't been having the greatest time with finding things to give advice on, but I promise I will get out of this very strange funk soon.
Romeo and Juliet is my favorite plays of all time and it was written by the ultimate word genius (to me), William Shakespeare. It's just an amazing formation of lovely words about a timeless love that only lasted about three days and left a body count of six people... With that being said, I love the story for the love affair and the gorgeous words (yes I am fangirling over words).
For my school's talent show (which is tomorrow 5/1), I have decided to perform the famous Juliet monologue from the second act (O Romeo, Romeo!) and it's so fun, but believe it or not, that's not my favorite quote or part of the play.
I really love the part in Act 2 when they are at Friar Laurence's cell and they are getting married and he says, "These violent delights have violent ends. And in their triumphs die, like fire and powder. Which, as they kiss, consume..." (Romeo and Juliet Act 2 Scene 6). I first read this quote when I read Twilight (this was over six years ago), but since then I have read Romeo and Juliet thousands of times and I've watched William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet so many times, more than I can count.
Most people don't like Shakespeare because they can't understand the way the plays are written, but personally, they are the most gorgeously written plays ever written. Yes, I can't really understand what is being said, but I can't really understand Spanish or French or Italian either, but that doesn't mean they can't be gorgeous languages for me. William Shakespeare wrote this play in 1597, so his language is different than what we speak today, it's old English.
For my freshman year in high school (2 years ago), I had to read it, which I gladly did because it's AMAZING!!!!!! And my teacher was confused when I knew what was going on in the conversations I had with him after class.

Dancing with the Stars

Okay so this is another rant post again because I can't think of anything else that I would write about. Today I am writing about Dancing with the Stars because I think it's an amazing show and I love the dances.
The Current Season that it's on is season 18.
The line up from the beginning was (the dancers are italicized):
Diana Nyad and Henry Byalikov
Sean Avery and Karina Smirnoff
Billy Dee Williams and Emma Slater
Cody Simpson and Whitney Carson
Drew Carey and Cheryl Burke
Candace Cameron Burke and Mark Ballas
Meryl Davis and Maksim Chmerkovskiy
NeNe Leakes and Tony Dovolani
James Maslow and Peta Murgatroyd
Danica McKellar and Valentin Chmerkovskiy
Amy Purdy and Derek Hough
Charlie White and Sharna Burgess
The first five have either been eliminated or they have withdrawn from the competition.
My favorite couples honestly are Meryl and Maks, Amy and Derek, James and Peta, and Charlie and Sharna.
Last week (4/14) was Disney night and that was amazing because everyone got to hear the songs from the movies that they grew up listening to and that was amazing. The perfect score for that week was James and Peta's contemporary dance to Let It Go from the new movie Frozen.

This week (4/21) was Party Anthem night and there was a lot of old songs from like the '90's and '80's and '70's even, but few from this time and the 2000s too. This week the perfect score was Meryl and Maks's tango to Feel So Close by Calvin Harris.

Now this next dance didn't get a perfect score, but just watch it, Tony can loose his shirt like Antonio Banderas can tie his hair up (said by my dad).

Next week is Latin night and the guest judge is Ricky Martin and I can't wait to watch it with my parents. :) <3 :3

The Great Gatsby Movie

Okay so, this isn't really an advice post, but more of a rant post and if you pay attention I will rant sometimes about something that I feel like ranting about.

So two weeks ago, in English class we finished reading The Great Gatsby which is honestly the best book I've ever been forced to read (a class mandated book) and I do not like any books that I've been forced to read, but I loved it to death because I'm really an old soul in a new body and often times I wish that I was born like 90 years before because I love the style and the music, but then again I don't like how women were treated and how they had not as much freedoms as we do now.
In the movie that came out last year (2013), which I really enjoyed and thought it was a very good movie and the soundtrack was done well for what it was. Most of the people in my class, however, didn't like the soundtrack although they said that the movie was done well. I mean I am a traditionalist and most times I would be cussing out a movie for messing with classic time period music that I enjoyed and I would swear never to listen to that music because it was butchered, but not this time. What I mean by that is that I think the remixes of songs and the up-tempo songs that they put in the movie was fantastic (maybe it's because I listened to the soundtrack over and over before ever even seeing the movie). I even read up on the soundtrack and how the songs came about and I found that to be so fascinating because I found out that most of the artists (like Will i am) were asked to put songs like The Charleston into their songs so that they sounded more like the music of the time, but I agree that the music isn't traditional to the era, but that's okay because the directer probably thought if he put the traditional songs it wouldn't appeal to the larger crowd and that's okay because that was his choice to make and he just happened to do an amazing job at that choice.
Furthermore the casting could have been better at times, but it was overall fantastic. I love Leo DiCaprio and Toby Maguire in other movies that they've starred in. I have watched Spider-man and that's the only other TM movie that I've watched which is sad, but with Leo, I've watched so many of his movies, The Titanic, Romeo & Juliet (which I know every line to and can talk along with them), Shutter Island, The Departed, The Aviator, Inception (There's more, but the list can go on forever plus I don't remember, but I know there's more. My mother loves Leonardo DiCaprio movies so she started me off watching them at a young age as she often does with so many of her favorite actors).
The point about the casting that I was trying to make, however, was that I found it to be amazing although some might disagree with me and that's okay because that's their own opinion and they are certainly entitled to it as I am with mine. I just thought the girls were perfect for their characters because the characters reminded me of what I pictured them as when I reading the book, I mean Myrtle was Marilyn Monroe/Jessica Rabbit worthy (that's the presence she brought to the movie and book). Also the guy who played Tom was a good fit because I wanted nothing more than to punch Tom in the face the whole time I was watching the movie and reading the book because I hated the character in the book and movie.
Also I have this way of falling in love with fictional characters and if there is an enemy, in any way, to that character I will end up hating that enemy with a fiery fiery passion and I often will fantasizing about ways that enemy can die (I can go to a very very dark place sometimes and I've come to terms with that fact of myself). That can be because the author of the novel has this way of brilliantly writing the book where you are just absorbed into the book like Fitzgerald does, or it could be because the actors are that good with conveying their characters to the camera.
I feel like a Gatsby fan girl with this rant, but Gatsby is sooooo amazing like no one understands. This past weekend I found it on Xfinity On Demand and I started playing it and my family would sit and watch it with me then they'd get up and leave and then come back and the whole time I just had figurative stars in my eyes and they were so very confused that when I would look at them, I would just respond to their puzzled faces with "It makes more sense if you have read the book". Then my brother asked me what a mistress was so I had to explain it to him and he's 13 almost 14, it was kind of awkward.

Babies and Their Intuition

Babies are super intuitive and they actually seem to know more about things that normal adults wouldn't be so inclined to know or they could know if they just applied themselves more, but babies seem to have this natural instinct that adults seem to loose when they age.
I research a lot, more than most kids my age I would think, and one of the things I research most is, babies. The reason is they fascinate me and it amazes me how much they know that we take advantage of because we think of ourselves and the age gap that we have the superiority and the knowledge that they don't when really they have knowledge that we don't, that we grow out of and pass off as childish.
I like researching this because I consider myself to be spiritual, not religious, but that is because of my grandmother, and I find myself to be intuitive, but not as much as any other semi-adult. I have a 3 year old brother and he seems to know a lot, to see a lot that we don't.
For instance, I believe that they can see ghosts and beings that aren't of our dimension (maybe you're reading this right now and you think I am a complete psycho for believing in these things, but honestly I find it completely normal to my own character so I don't really care what you think of me).
The reason why I think this, is because my mom has this piece of artwork from a friend that had passed years ago and then when we moved my brother would always be talking to someone, it seemed like, whenever he was by that piece of artwork and we all didn't know why he was talking to himself, until my parents kind of pieced it together and just assumed he was talking to the friend.
With saying that I believe in spirits doesn't mean that I think that they can do harm, well that most of them don't do harm, but there are some spirits that can do harm to people, but not in the sense of the horror movie spirits and ghosts. No, I believe that we all have protector angelic type of spirits, ones that watch over us and bless us by helping us with all of the good in our lives and I believe you can feel this presence like you can also feel the black tentacles of the evil spirits. I just wanted to take a little excerpt to explain what I believe so it makes more sense than before.

So maybe you don't believe the way I do and honestly I don't care if you do or if you don't, I'm not asking you to believe and certainly if you do, great, or you don't, it doesn't matter.

The Great Gatsby

So this week we finished The Great Gatsby and I have something to say about something relating to that.
Fitzgerald had Gatsby put Daisy on a super angelic pedestal and that frustrates me because I realize a lot of guys do this.
Guys will often put girls on pedestals to where the girls can't possibly meet those standards and the guys that put them there, they're fantasizing about about that girl, but an overly perfect version of themselves that makes them think they are competing with themselves for attention.
When guys do this it's difficult and frustrating because we feel like there's always something that will disappoint them because there will be those moments where they realize that the fantasy isn't like the reality and those moments are moments that'll hurt the most for the girls.
The girls will always wonder if what they do is right and what the guys want, but they will never actually know if what they do is what the guys think when they think of the angelic perfection that is "them".

I'm so sorry about the very short post tonight and I promise that next week's post will be much much longer than this. I just feel like I am the one who needs to be receiving advice versus giving advice.
This is one of those rare moments in time where this'll happen, but I'm just not really in the advice-giving mood.
