COINCID E NCE
I remember the very first day I met him. He was the one that taught me how to develop my films. We used to stay late at the university and work together, discuss about life, art, people. Then we started passing each other little notes, then letters. One day he bought a typewriter and started typing outside the cafe in front of everyone. The whole street was filled with that lovely sound. I didn’t know that his very first letter is going to be for me. It was the best thing to watch his fingers moving slowly and that cold breath coming from his mouth. At that moment I knew that it was HIM. Then one man came out of nowhere and left a card on our table. It was the card of hearts.

I’m now officially a Graphic Design student ——- AND I know It’s been ages since my last post. Many things have happened since then,————-like, I started my studies in UK, new place, new people, new home, new everything. Even — though it was a big step to take I’m really glad I took it. It’s always good to challenge ———— yourself and deal with every difficulty in life, see yourself growing as a better and much ———– stronger person. I’ve always dreamt about spending my hours at the library reading —————- books about dada or fauvism, staying late at the uni and working on my projects, I never——— thought I would say this but I started to love Mondays, it feels so good to do the things —– you’ve always wanted. Life is unpredictable, exciting and full of surprises. Work hard, ———— play hard. Now, let’s have a wonderful life.

He asked me out for a dance, it sounded crazy in the pouring rain but I nodded with a smile. I kept laughing because of my wet dress, I also had to take my shoes off because of the water, then he told me how happy he was and yes, it was the beginning of our Love.

BRICK WALLS ARE THERE FOR A REASON THEY LET US PROVE HOW BADLY WE WANT THINGS.
The brick walls are there to stop the people who don’t want it badly enough. ‘Work hard & be nice to people’ – Anthony Burrill. You cannot hire people to do push-ups and grow muscles for you. Work hard. But what is success? ‘Success is going from failure to failure with no loss of enthusiasm’ – Winston Churchill. Then, what is experience? Experience is what you get when you didn’t get what you wanted. This just proves that often the best things in life come when you leave your comfort zone and explore undiscovered places and roads. Don’t be afraid of failures. Remember, that to become a champion you need to fight one more round. Everyone wants to live on top of the mountain, but all the happiness, lessons and growth occurs while you are climbing it. But when one finally reaches the top there is often a feeling of emptiness – having already fulfilled their purpose of reaching the top their life now becomes purposeless. True happiness comes from the process of pursuing a meaningfull purpose. It is the journey that brings happiness – not the destination. There’s only one thing that keeps you from reaching your goals – You. What’s your excuse? While some people are preparing to live (I’ll start next week, tomorrow, next year, maybe next time) some people are already living it – they start now. The truth is that THAT tomorrow or the right time never comes, you simply have to start now, from the very first moment. You can achieve anything you want. ‘If you can dream it you can do it’ – Walt Disney. Trust your dreams and more important believe in yourself. Say ‘I want to make a difference there.’ And then ask yourself ‘How badly do I want this?’. Find the stories, people that inspire and encourage you and start believing in them, grow your power. Believe in miracles. It’s sounds obvious but still many people don’t take it too seriously. Make your mark on the world. Your vision of where or who you want to be is the greatest asset you have, because without a goal it’s difficul to score.
