Long overdue the post that I have been planning since December 2013. However that didn't work out. So here we are, December '14 with a series of blogmas mostly because I'm extremely excited about Christmas this year and also because I'm off to a 10 day vacation to the hills because what's better than white Christmas? (Answer: nothing). Most of my friends are already on their way to winter vacation wonderlands and that makes me a little sad, at least there's nothing hot chocolate can't fix. These days it has been a series of baking and redecorating bedroom and eating the said baked goodies all by myself while playing Michael Buble on repeat. Can I get more cliche than this? Probably not. I finally found a perfectly oversized leather jacket that I may or may not have stolen from my brother. I finished decorating the tree and already opened a lot of gifts. Guilty.
On a closing note, here are a few quotes from one of my favorite books(The Unbearable Lightness Of Being):
-“When the heart speaks, the mind finds it indecent to object.”
-“Anyone whose goal is 'something higher' must expect someday to suffer vertigo. What is vertigo? Fear of falling? No, Vertigo is something other than fear of falling. It is the voice of the emptiness below us which tempts and lures us, it is the desire to fall, against which, terrified, we defend ourselves.”
-“But when the strong were too weak to hurt the weak, the weak had to be strong enough to leave.”
-“I want you to be weak. As weak as I am.”
-“The only relationship that can make both partners happy is one in which sentimentality has no place and neither partner makes any claim on the life and freedom of the other.”
-“And what can life be worth if the first rehearsal for life is life itself?”
-“It is completely selfless love: Tereza did not want anything of Karenin; She did not ever ask him to love her back. Nor has she ever asked herself the questions that plague human couples[.....]Perhaps all the questions we ask of love, to measure, test, probe, and save it, have the additional effect of cutting it short."
