WELLIES ☁

WELLIES ☁



While I was working the other day, it started to rain and I noticed something. Girls wear rain boots. I know that not many people can stand them, but I think they are adorable and I will definitely buy them some day. As you know me, I am always up with the stores and fashion, so I already researched the whole boots affair on one of my favourite sites ASOS.

Then I went on polyvore and this is the link of it and I highly recommend you to check it out, if you want to buy wellies - Polyvore Wellies.

There are so many beautiful designs and the most amazing thing is that you can almost always buy matching rain coat with it. I said that if I will ever make it as an archaeologist, I will buy them. I have no idea, but something about the color blue or yellow looks so great. I mean, I normally don't wear yellow, but they look great in yellow. I reminds me of the original yellow boots. Yet, I think that blue ones look the most feminine. When I will have money, I will definitely buy the blue ones.










This are my pick, if I were to choose. There is something I don't like about the short ones. I mean some people can really pull them off, but I think that the standard size is way prettier. At least for me.

PEOPLE NOTICE ⋆ YOU ⋆

The last couple of weeks I have been working and couldn't really focus on anything else but work. Still, I had very particular ideas about subjects I want to write down here, while being on a blog break. The one I want to share today with you is very inspiring and it is based on my experiences, working with people.

My job was to sell things like food and cream and shampoos and stuff like that. The down side of the job was waking up very early and being on cold and just standing for multiple hours, without sitting down or going for a tea to warm myself. As much as I hated my job, I had some very pleasant experiences with people around me.

For example, people noticed that I have been standing in the cold and offered to buy me tea and get me a chair and as strictly as I had to decline, I felt very worm just by seeing how caring people really are. I know that I barely notice stuff like that, I always say hi back if someone says hi and smile or maybe chat for a few minutes, but to be honest wouldn't notice if something like that would happen to people and they wouldn't mention it. I like to think that I would, but I don't. And I developed a theory why. People have so many worries and so much technology to care about others or give a nod back to a simple hello. And I decided to reduce my use of phone and start looking around. You don't see it, but it really changes someone's day and maybe you think that this is not important, but it is! It changed my day and I wanted to take the time to tell you to do better. Notice more. Be the change. Make someone's day. Because who knows, maybe someday you will be in need.

DON'T MAKE ME STAY HERE. PLEASE.

sreda, 09. september 2015

DON'T MAKE ME STAY HERE. PLEASE.

Today is a very special day, because we all reached 300 posts. This is kind of a big deal for me and I always celebrate it when I get 100 new posts. I remember when I reached 100 and 200, those were the days. But for these past few days, I was having a struggle. I wanted this 300th post to be special and I wanted to thank you for your support, because let's face the fact that I wouldn't be this determined without you. I had this idea of writing a big thank you post or maybe post pictures of this year or something to thank you, but I changed my mind.



I watched Revolutionary Road this morning and it was one of those movies that spoke to me and made me think a lot. And whenever I am this into a movie, I usually write about it here, so my boyfriend told me that he already knows this is going to be my 300th post, but I didn't want to write about this movie. And that is exactly why I will write about it, because letting my thoughts out, when I am most vulnerable and when I feel the darkest things, is he reason why I started this blog, so today I have to tell you a lot and we should really start.
"In the end we are all separate: our stories, no matter how similar, come to a fork and diverge. We are drawn to each other because of our similarities, but it is our differences we must learn to respect."

I SAW A WHOLE OTHER FUTURE. I CAN'T STOP SEEING IT. (spoilers)
Revolutionary Road starts with this couple April and Frank. April desires to be an actress and Frank really doesn't know what he wants to be, he just goes with the flow. They get married and have two kids. They have small marriage problems and they fight relatively a lot. Frank cheated on April, but that is not shown as a big deal. And then one day April gets the idea of moving to Paris, to start new, so Frank would be happy and find what he likes and she would work and provide for the family. They would be happier, April was determined. One night, when Frank came home, she told him about the idea and he was a little skeptical about it, but then he was really excited and he promised that they will go in September. They started preparing, but Frank somehow on the way got another job offer (it wasn't his dream offer, but it was better than this job) and April got pregnant. So Frank chickened out and said no. April was ready to get an abortion if that was a problem, she wanted to go so badly, but he always found a new reason and it was all a downfall from there. By making this decision for the whole family, Frank broke April. He couldn't understand what she felt, so they got in a massive fight and April just lost it. The next morning she prepared him scrambled eggs and had the most sweetest morning with him, he went to his new job so happy that they were finally okay, but then when he was leaving, she made an abortion and killed herself with it. It would be safe if she would have been pregnant less than 10 weeks, and she knew she would die, so she did it. She couldn't stand life anymore. She hated his husband and she went completely mad.


THE REASON.
The reason it spoke to me and made me really depressed, is because I kinda feel the same way as April. I feel like Jan is sometimes holding me away from my destiny. To really understand what I am talking about, you have to know the story. And I can only tell it from my prospective. I wanted to move away for as long as I wanted to be an actress. And I wanted to move away as soon as possible. This place made me so sad and I found a new meaning to life, when I imagined me being far from here. It was always my goal and I could see it so clearly. I saw a whole other future and I can't stop seeing it. But then I met Jan, he promised me to move away when we finish high school and he realized he can't keep his promise. He found so many obstacles, so he kept having this excuses and it kept breaking me down. So this year, when I had to sign up for University, I had a very bad break down, because I know I am not happy here and he wants me to stay this sad and keep me here, despite his promises. I wanted to study acting and go to auditions, maybe get a job as a waitress to pay for living there or something similar. I was ready to give everything away for my happiness. But he was not able to see it as I did. He keeps making me see it so dreamy, but I know that it is all just a lie. He wants to get time and I am not ready to spend another few years here for him to change his mind again. I see an amazing future with him, we are great together and there is no one like him for me, but I think that this problem could destroy what we have, because it makes me so unhappy. And if one person in a relationship is so unhappy, it can't make the other one happy.

WHAT IS IT ALL ABOUT?
What do I see in foreign country, that I don't see here, you ask? I see my future. It is as simple as that. I can't see myself being here, I am unhappy because I cant show what I can show to the world, because there is no opportunities here and I was designed to be an actress, I can't be anything else. I want to follow my path and I want to be in a country that are english speaking people. I want to make my life dream come true. I want to be happy. Imagine yourself being in the country that you are and all that you want is to go away, but you can't. It would slowly suffocate you and make you depressed, especially if you are as artsy-fartsy as myself. I am a deep soul, I feel everything so deeply and I have all figure out in my head. And being here and doing nothing feels like I can't breathe and someone keeps giving me air right before I would pass out. I can't stop. I am in this circle and I can't get out. I want to be with Jan, but I want to be happy as well. Jan makes me happy, but that is not enough, you have to be happy and make yourself happy to truly define you as happy. And I am not happy about life, I can't see the point. I don't blame Jan for not going away with me for my dreams, I only blame him to lead me on and then break his promise. When I met him it was so clear that he was the only one for me and kept telling me we will go away, he begged me to stay for him and wait until he makes high school and then he would take me wherever I want, but that day never came. I have my whole life ahead of me, you say? You are so young, you say? I don't feel so young. I am missing out. Acting is not just waiting for me to get old. My happiness does not just appear, when there is nothing to be happy about. If being crazy means living life as if it matters, then I don't mind being completely insane.


300
That was kinda depressing. I swore to not get down there and speak about my sad life, but I could not get pass this. I want to say it out loud, I want to write it down. I want the change, even if I can't get it. I can't just stand here and keep doing nothing, because I know that this is not where I am supposed to be. I don't want to be here.

WHAT IS UP WITH LEONARDO DiCAPRIO

ponedeljek, 07. september 2015

WHAT IS UP WITH LEONARDO DiCAPRIO

GOD, I HATED THAT GUY
I believe that, if you are around my age, you all grew up watching Leonardo Dicaprio. I hated that guy. And there was only one reason that made me hate him and that reason was Titanic. God, that was a whining film, I hated it when I was younger. It had that catchy song in it by Celine Dion and I hated the fact that all the girls were madly obsessed about it and the movie was not even that good, in my opinion, but you should know that I have a very specific taste in movies. I had a very special group of actors that I thought were washed (disclaimer: I was wrong and stupid at that time). He was that groups leader beside Brad Pitt, George Clooney, Tom Hanks and Tom Cruise.


INCEPTION
I remember when Inception was the main attraction in 2010. I was and still am a movie freak and I knew everything about everything and Inception was a major movie that year, I dare to say the best. And I decided to watch it, because you know, I had to. So, I saw it on Partis and downloaded it. I have never fallen for anyone as much as I have fallen for Leo in that movie. He was so good, I worshiped him more than anyone. I loved the movie for its amazing, not just amazing, but brilliant story and the whole cast and of course the director Nolan (who is one of my favorite people on the planet), but to put cherry on top of a film, there was Hans Zimmer with the most amazing movie soundtrack Time and amazing album for the movie. It had Marion Cotillard, it had Ellen Page, it had Joseph Gordon-Levitt, it had Tom Hardy and Cillian Murphy and Ken Watanabe and of course I mustn't forget Michael Cane. But none of those actors made me so impressed as that guy from the worst movie of my childhood did. From that day on Leonardo DiCaprio in my hero.

I RARELY CHANGE MY MIND
I can not remember when I changed my mind about an actor or actress, I put them in three sections usually. There is a section 'worshiped', and section 'not-watchable' and section 'okay, if there is nothing better to watch'. He is so amazing that he came from 'not-watchable' to 'worshiped' in a matter of seconds. I don't usually like pouting movies, but The Great Gatsby is classic (yeah, I know Titanic is classic as well) and I read the book and I loved it so much that I couldn't wait for the movie and Leo was so good in it. I am really happy with a movie when I can't find anyone who could play someone instead of the main characters, and I have not seen a movie in my life that I would have someone else casted instead of Leonardo. He impressed me with The Wolf of Wall Street and Django Unchained and literally every movie I have seen so far. I would even consider myself enjoying Titanic. I have just downloaded Revolutionary Road and Gangs of New York.

I WANT TO WATCH EVERYTHING
My biggest wish is to watch every good movie, a movie worth watching for, that exists on this planet. I know that my wish is impossible, but I would just hate the idea of missing out on a great movie, but recently I have tried to watch as many as possible (Dallas Buyers Club, Django Unchained...). I have tried to watch all the movies I didn't have the time to watch when they came out and all the nominations of Golden Globe and The Oscars. By the way, I am so disappointed in Academy for not giving Leonardo DiCaprio the damn Oscar he deserves. Personally I am more of a Golden Globe person, but he already got a Globe and he definitely deserves an Oscar as well. I mean are you crazy?! Just today I have watched his nomination for Wolf of Wall Street and Matthew McConaughey won it for Dallas Buyers Club. I mean I totally get that, because he was brilliant it it, all respect for McConaughey' work on that film, but Leo deserved one for all the rest nominations. Cmoooon people, we should be rebels and demand his Oscar. No, but serious, it would make me really happy for him to get it.

He inspires me and gives me that sparkle of passion for films. If you are not that much of a movie freak, as myself, you don't appreciate brilliant movies as much as I do, but they are the point of my life. And I have to say this: He is the leading actor of our time.

GETTING A JOB

GETTING A JOB

I have recently posted this blog → Hello, hi! ← and today I came one step closer to reaching my goal of success. My goal was to make my own money to be able to move away to United Kingdom and buy myself a new laptop, because I really need it for what I do (blogging, photography, videos). As it is clear to all of you by now, I want to devote my life to acting and everything TV, movies related and I was on a job hunt that would include at least a glimpse of it. I found that my favorite place on earth, which is our local cinema in looking to employ students and I applied.


I was really nervous, because I have only worked in front of the camera and in our family restaurant, I had no experiences with interviews. I put on my best smile and kinda rock the whole thing, or at least I think I did, because it all went according to plan. My first day is this Friday and I am actually not getting paid on my first day, but then I am working to get real money from that day on. My first 'official' working day is going to happen on Saturday, but there is a catch. That is the exact day when Ritem mladosti is happening. I know, you are confused, because you don't know what that even is. That, my friends, is just the biggest event in Slovenia. Thousands of people gather to this one day music festival, so I am expecting a big crowd. As much as this sound scary, I am really excited about it. 

To be honest, I am one of those super hype people, that will always look happy and make jokes just to make everyone around me smile. I talk super fast and I can change anyone's opinion. I am that kind of a person, you can see why I consist on acting. It is what I am good at and it is what I am passionate about, so I am looking at this job as some kind of a fake acting job. This may sound odd, but I have a feeling that I could really make this work.

THATS THE SPIRIT:

MEETING ANA

MEETING ANA


There are so many things that inspire me and one of them is definitely reading second opinions and just what people have to say about life and things in general. And one of the most inspiring things I read recently was Ana's blog. I immediately wanted to know more about this girl, so I decided to ask her for a coffee and just meet with her, to see if she would maybe like to write something with me, because she runs the most adorable blog and I would love for all of you to check it out.


At first we were both a bit shy, but then when we started talking about schools and families she easily opened up to me and we had this amazing few hours of talking together. We discovered that we have the same taste in men and TV shows in general, when she mentioned Misfits to me and of course the love of my TV life Robert Sheehan. I haven't really met a person who would really know Robert Sheehan here in Slovenia, so that was a pleasant surprise. We share the same interests and opinions for a lot of things, which is really nice, because she gave me the feeling like I can talk to her for hours and still have millions things to share with her.

As we are both bloggers, of course we couldn't get pass the discussion about our experiences and just about the definition of what blogging really mean to us. Blogging means that you have ability and desire to express and just put yourself in the spot for the world to judge your opinion. And it is not about selling your ideas, it is about having this gold thread of knowledge you want to inspire and share with others and even yourself. That is what I see in Ana. Being this great girl, full of ideas and a great imagination, who is not afraid to put herself out there and just be who she really is. I had an opportunity to be stuck in a coffee shop with her, because it was pouring outside for almost 4 hours, the definition of serendipity, truly. She was very down to earth, and I can tell you that she has very great ideas, and I would love all of you to check her blog out, because she deserves a lot more recognition. She just started her second blog, I believe and it is called 'Little Ana'. Click the link → here ←.


Today was a great day! I just feel so lucky to have this blog and you guys, who inspire me to put myself out there and meet amazing people, like Ana. 

I am gonna see you guys tomorrow with some more exciting news hopefully.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY GRANDMA

Yesterday was my grandma's 74th birthday and we surprised her with cake. I took a few photos of my family and celebration and here they are:


After the celebration, Jan took me to Ljubljana for a cookie and a drink, which was probably one of the best days of this vacations so far. We laughed at a notebook me and Anja wrote for Jan 3 years ago. It was so lovely, I loved it!


What a great day!
