"Lived and learned from fools and from sages"

This is how it feels like



I am suffering from author's block, if you will. An annoying, troublesome creative slump. The part of my brain that loved the click of the camera and the tac-tac-tac of a keyboard has fled the coop and is probably drunk in a rundown bar while I'm using my keyboard as dust gatherer. I sometimes feel as if I can hear my brain sloshing around and slowly dripping out through the boredom cracks in my skull.

Does anyone have a cure for the creative equivalent of being down in the dumps? If yes, please write down on post-it and send by carrier pigeon. They'll know where to find me.


On this background, I've been trying to distract myself/entice my neurons with different activities:

♥ my birthday in May (feeling too old in my own skin but still too young at the same time, how is that possible?) . Brought good times and great gifts, so I can't complain too much about getting old.
♥ experiments in the kitchen which did not end in fires, surprisingly, and the realization I can make delicious stuffed peppers and chocolate muffins.
♥ painted Easter eggs with mother and ate abnormal amounts of chocolate that holiday and every other holiday from New Year's until now.
Bike-walked. Not as much as I want, but still. It was fun!
♥ Saw Cluj for the first time and Sinaia for the one billionth time. Remembered why I love road trips and late nights spent in the company of lovely people.
♥ been losing sleep. Dreaming about Zombie Apocalypses and making plans of action for when that time comes (rules include: cardio and shotguns. Thanks Zombieland!)
♥ Watched all of Supernatural. All of 30 Rock (I thought I hated it. It was a shock to realize I actually don't. I call this the power of Tina Fey). And started M.A.S.H. and Doctor Who. Hmmm, I am slowly understanding why I've been losing sleep ...
♥ Tried the wind-swept style. And the Cousin It of Adams Family fame style. Changed hair color with every coloring and ended up slightly amber. I am now sporting what I call "Fake Red Head Who Has No Time to Dye Her Hair and Whose Hairdresser Is On Holiday" style. It works for me!
♥ Girls' night out, of course.
♥ Started taking the whole vegetarian thing very seriously. And the coffee addict thing too.
♥ Also started taking football (yes, football, not soccer, thank you very much!) very seriously
♥ Saw Aerosmith live just 2 days ago. Spent time afterward dreaming of sequined blazers and dancing to Dude Looks Like a Lady as these two things seem to work together. Steven Tyler is one ball of rock-and-roll, crazy energy.

♥ ... O yeah, started exams. Thinking I won't finish them alive, if my pathology book has anything to say about it.


All in all, it has not been a boring time! Fingers crossed for my inspiration and if you need me I'll be off re-enacting the Glee dance scenes and dreaming of future times when school books will be locked in dark places and days will be nothing more than vodka-orange glasses and lazy reading on picnic blankets.

I'm glad you're back blogging again. And don't worry, I was in a slump recently. I had big A-level exams which had me tied to my revision books. Just take some time away from the computer and it'll come back to you :) xxx
