Hair-zilla

A creature that lurks in the corners of scalps. It does not have a specific target nor time when it strikes. It just becomes one of those days, a bad hair day. Oh, the horror!

I try not to have bad hair days, but my hair has a mind of its own. I don’t use hairspray or weird chemicals, because it makes it ten times worse. To be honest, my hair can sometimes look better upon waking, than after I brush it. I keep my hair shoulder-length, so I won’t have to use hair bands. I use hair clips to keep in balanced, but most of the time I wear it loose and straight. My natural hair is curly, but after straightening for a long time, it has become wavy. I love it that way, but sadly it gets on the way of daily activities. For example, when I eat, my hair apparently gets hungry, too and finds its way on my food. Totally gross, but hey, at least it’s MY hair and not others’.

My friends think I like to try different hairstyles throughout the day, but the truth is, my hair just morphs into different shapes, and it doesn’t matter whether I stay still or move -and you thought Medusa looked creepy- but I hope one day my hair will behave. The good news is, hats suit me, and hat hair seems to keep my hair on a time-out for a moment.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Letters

Hello!!!! It’s Friday, which means another Photo challenge :). I have two photos to share with you. The first one is of letters written by me great aunt. The letters talk about the time she was neighbours with my late grandparents. It’s a perspective on her and their lives years ago. She’s still alive and I talk to her as often as I can, but whenever I get nostalgic, I read them. The second photo is of clouds, because the sky writes us letters everyday. Enjoy!

Thanks Jenni for the awards!

My awesome blogger friend, Jenni has nominated me for more awards :). As always, I am very grateful for all the support! I’ll accept these ones 🙂

Here’s a random fact: When I was a kid, I had an avocado tree in my backyard. Sunday breakfasts were mostly avocado sandwiches! My favourite :D. To this day, I love avocados; avocado rolls, avocado sandwiches, avocados on their own, avocado and rice…you get the idea :p

Here’s another random fact: I always smell good. I cannot stand not smelling good. My room has to smell good. I just love good smells.

Undo – A to Z challenge

A to Z challenge, letter: U

Undo

Sometimes I wish I had an ‘undo’ button, but wouldn’t life make no sense with it? If you could undo every bad moment, and every mistake, we would never move on from what we are meant to learn by making those mistakes. Of course, sometimes you may need that button, but it’s best not to have the temptation to use it all the time. How could you grow as a person if you keep rewinding what you don’t want to face? Our souls and bodies were created to have the ability to evolve and become better, but not perfect. It’s always good to go back and remember those painful memories, in order to use it to help someone or yourself, and withstand the chaos that surrounds us. If we ‘undo’ there is no moving forward. We’d be stuck in an infinite loop, and wouldn’t be able to realize our potential. Our reality would become a comfort zone, without the will to explore the greatness out there that we could be missing out. I wish I could undo my loved ones’ death, but I know I can’t, and it’s best to know that I can’t. Power can become your destruction, perfection can feel like your best friend, but be your worst enemy. There would not be a tomorrow, and we would miss out on new opportunities, and we would live in a past, and lose our present.

Poem – Visit

58703_436877468479_3900498_n

Why have you not visited me again

she has many times

I need to hear you one more time

Tell me to live in peace

she has many times.

~~~

My emotions fall like dominoes

your presence can stop them

why can’t you visit me

she has many times

tell me, I want to understand

~~~

Is it that you’re here, but I can’t feel you?

The essence of her perfume has appeared

but yours, just once, if anything

why can’t you visit me

and relive the seen horizons

and the pebbles thrown in the water

~~~

Just once, I know you are fine

I need to know

you told me once you’d be here

is it because I really am okay?

why can’t you visit me,

she has many times

I live in peace

but say it to me one more time.

~~~

❤ ❤ ❤ Love, Ellie ❤ ❤ ❤

Daily prompt: The Wanderer

The Daily Post asks: Tell us about the top five places you’ve always wanted to visit. GO!

1) Middle-Earth (specifically Rivendell): I guess New Zealand will do for now, but one day I’ll find a way to go to Middle-Earth :p

2) Europe: it’s hard to pick just one country! I guess I’d like to start with Ireland (castles and Guinness!), Italy (art, architecture, pasta and pizza), France (visit my heritage), Switzerland (great chocolate).

3) Antarctica and Argentina: Penguins!!!

4) Australia: I have friends from there and I’d love to bring home a koala for my sister. A real koala would be most preferable, but a stuffed one from there will do. Oh and Caramello Koala!!!

5) Forget visiting the Moon or Mars. I want to visit another galaxy.

Tired T-Rex – A to Z challenge

A to Z challenge letter: T

Tired T-Rex

Life is hectic and tired is a common word used on a daily basis. It is not a bad feeling, but it is a warning that your body needs rest. Sometimes, I don’t know how seniors can withstand a daily walk after retirement. Some days I feel like I’m 120 years old, but that happens during hectic weeks. Do you have those days when you can barely make it pass the front door? Your eyes can barely stay open and all you want to do is sleep for 10 days straight. How about when you want to take a shower? I know when I’m tired and I want to take a bath, I go in as soon as I go pass the front door, because if I sit for just a second, I end up sitting for hours. I love my tea after work or a glass of red wine, and just sit, relax, and enjoy my shows on Netflix. Listen to your body, when you feel very tired, just go to sleep (if you can). Your body needs to recharge to continue. Hopefully, when/if I’m an oldie, I won’t feel as tired.

Bathroom call at random times

Hi everyone! Hope you’re doing great :D! Today, I want to post a list regarding bathroom calls (because we’ve all been there). This is basically how it goes: you feel like going to the bathroom, when you can’t get to the bathroom right away. Well, I hope this doesn’t only happen to me o.O

1. You’re standing in line at your favourite store about to pay, when the feeling hits. Usually, the cashier won’t notice until you start shaking your Debit/Credit card as you insert it in the machine.

2. When you’re about to eat. The bathroom urge does not discriminate against any type of foods.  Sometimes it even encourages you to drink water.

3. When you’re at the movie theatre in the middle of the climax. You know, because your body likes to ruin your life.  Oh and to add insult to injury, you suddenly get thirsty!

4. When you come home from a long walk. It doesn’t matter how long it was, or how many times you stopped on the way. But, as soon as you reach the front door and start looking for your keys, you feel like going to the bathroom. It will feel as if you had not gone for the whole day. Of course, this rush will not help you find your keys faster, and you’ll drop everything you have on the ground and run to the bathroom..and it won’t come out.

5. As soon as you get in the shower. You had all the time in the world before you went in, but nope, your body likes to play tricks on you.

6. At a family reunion. You know you’re going to have to go the bathroom in a few minutes, but instead of going you just wait for 5 minutes…big mistake! The bathrooms are taken at the same time. The despair and regret hits you, and you feel like unleashing a waterfall in your backyard – you actually consider doing the number one business in a bag and throw it away – that’s how desperate you are!

So, when does the ‘feeling’ hit you?
