Christmas Cards

Today I was writing some Christmas cards for my family and friends to spread the Christmas joy. It's only a week away from Christmas Eve, and I am going to do some preparations. First thing was writing Christmas cards, the second would be decorating my new room into Christmas mood. I want to do some research on poems, but I think I would not have the time to learn them by heart, but it's still and improvement if I would at least find some great ones !

This one goes to Postcrossing

This one also goes to Postcrossing :)

These are going to my dear friends with muffins :D

This one goes to my dearest friend with also a muffin

I really haven't decided yet :)

This one goes to my First (Town) Grandma

This one goes to my Second (Country) Grandma

This one goes to my great-aunt

This last card goes also to Postcrossing-to UK !!! :)

If you wonder why I don't do cards to my mum and dad, then the answer would be that I see them everyday and they just don't care about cards so much like others.

Have a Merry Christmas,

Movie Review

My parents were gone and I was sitting all alone in the living room with 4 DVD-s. I had only one day to watch all of them. So I immediately sit on the big pillow and started my movie marathon.

The first movie was the well-known, famous, "you-have-to-see-it" "Inception."

Storyline: Dom Cobb(Leonardo DiCaprio) were a man who could steal any secret from you when you sleep. But after he failed on his mission he was declared wanted by the corporation who hired him. To get rid of them and his charges, and see his children in USA, he had to complete a impossible mission to plant an Inception (an idea) to another person's head. So he
"grabs" together a team and then the action begins.

My opinion: At first the movie was a bit confusing. I couldn't catch up with the storyline, because it was all so complicated. But when the movie went on I conce
ntrated more and finally started to understand what the characters were talking about. The movie was 2 hours long, so it started to get a bit boring in the middle, but at the end the solution
came fast. Overall the movie was great but I think they would have managed to make it with
only one hour.

The second movie was with Ashton Kutcher and Katherine Heigl "Killers"

Storyline: Spencer (Ashton Kutcher) was an assassin hired by the government to kill dangerous people. Jen (Katherine Heigl) was a normal girl , who had gone on a vacation to France with his mom and dad. The two of them met, fell in love, and Spencer quit his job, although Jen didn't know anything about his job. After 3 years of marriage suddenly everyone who Spence knew started to kill him, because someone had put a reward worth of 20 million pounds, for Spence's dead body. So he and his wife had to fight to stay alive.

My opinion: It was a great action movie with a bit of humor. It was a really nice surprise to see Ashton in a assassin role, fighting with villains. Katherine did a good job and she was really funny. The movie reminded a bit "Knight and Day" where the main character had to fight with the bad guys, because they wanted to kill him, and had to run away from them with a gorgeous girl who he finally fell in love.
This movie was actually better than "Inception" because it wasn't so long and complicated.

The third movie was "Pride & Prejudice" starring with Keira Knightley

Storyline: The main character Elizabeth did not want to get married. She had 4 sisters and her parents were constantly trying to get them into marriage with a rich man. Lizzy met a bit arrogant man in one ball. She said that she hated him, but afterwards she began to see how generous and deep the man really were. So the movie talks mostly about how they found each other and finally married.

My opinion: That movie was touching and beautiful. I really loved the nature and landscapes. Also the soundtrack was enchanting. I really liked how the main character talked about love, poems, and how she spoke with the people around her. The man who she fell in love was very deep and mysterious. The actor was perfect for that role. The tension between these two characters were really tense, like you could almost touch it. The movie was also 2 hours but it didn't got boring, confusing or too long for that. The movie makers could not make the movie shorter because, then the point would get lost.

The final movie was "Letters to Juliet"

Storyline: Young writer named Sophia went on an early honeymoon vacation with his fiance. Sophia found an old love letter from the wall in Juliet's home garden. She reads it through and helps the woman who write it to find her true love. The old woman has a grandson who falls in love with Sophie, and Sophie falls in love with him. At the end they finally get together and the old woman finds her true love.

My opinion: The movie "crawled" right at the top of my favorite movies of all time, next to "Titanic". It was wonderful, the landscapes, soundtrack, characters atmosphere-It was all there. It really amazed me and I cried as much in "Titanic". I don't have anything more to say because it was really a good movie and I will recommend it to everyone.

These were the 4 movies what I watched today. Leave your own opinion in the comments right below.

Merapi Volcano erupts lava again !

Indonesia volcano Merapi erupts lava again. Scientists say that the volcano can be active for weeks. Since 1548. Merapi has been active 68 times. In 1992 Merapi erupted again what lasted for 10 years.
This year the volcano was first active at 26 October.Visibility in the city was limited to about 10 to 15 meters and people in the city wore masks or handkerchiefs over their faces. The medical officials say that the volcano killed at least 36 people and injured 25 when it exploded. The European Commission offered 1.5 million euros ($2.1 million) to help the victims of nature disasters.

And I will add a video address (I can't upload it) from CNN where you can hear and see more of the volcano:

Also Indonesia has gone through some rough times lately , like 7.5 magnitude earthquake what caused Tsunami.

We should all light a candle for those people who were killed and be thankful of that we live in a safe country !

The circle of Daily Life

I saw a funny sketch the other day what I instantly wanted to share that with you !

Take Care,

Still I Rise..

Today I stumbled on a great poet Maya Angelou, who was born is St. Louis, Missouri.
I liked her poems right away. They meant something and touched my heart.

Still I rise

You may write me down in history
With your bitter, twisted lies,
You may trod me in the very dirt
But still, like dust, I'll rise.

Does my sassiness upset you?
Why are you beset with gloom?
'Cause I walk like I've got oil wells
Pumping in my living room.

Just like moons and like suns,
With the certainty of tides,
Just like hopes springing high,
Still I'll rise.

Did you want to see me broken?
Bowed head and lowered eyes?
Shoulders falling down like teardrops.
Weakened by my soulful cries.

Does my haughtiness offend you?
Don't you take it awful hard
'Cause I laugh like I've got gold mines
Diggin' in my own back yard.

You may shoot me with you
r words,
You may cut me with your eyes,
You may kill me with your hatefulness,
But still, like air, I'll rise.

Does my sexiness upset you?
Does it come as a surprise
That I dance like I've got diamonds
At the meeting of my thighs?

Out of the huts of hi
story's shame
I rise
Up from a past that's rooted in pain
I rise
I'm a black ocean, leaping and wide,
Welling and swelling I bear in the tide.
Leaving behind nights of terror and fear
I rise
Into a daybreak that's wondrously clear
I rise
Bringing the gifts that my ancestors gave,
I am the dream and th
e hope of the slave.
I rise
I rise
I rise.
