Perdida en el camino.

He estado pensando que realmente no importa quienes somos, que tan feliz somos o todas las cosas buenas que planeamos hacer, no importa si estudiaste, si tus calificaciones son excelente o si pasas el resto de tu vida preparándote para el mundo de ahí fuera, porque eso es lo que queremos: estar preparados para el mundo, los problemas , por las futuras relaciones eso es todo lo que importa, eso es todo por lo que nos preocupamos pero al final no importa que tan inteligente eres o cuantas veces no fuiste a la cama tratando de encontrar una manera de hacer las cosas mejor.

La verdad es que hay un punto en nuestras vidas que nos sentimos perdidos…. Como completamente perdidos, vacios, aquí es donde todo los estudios y preparaciones del mundo o cuantos libros hayas leído no importan porque cuando este tiempo llega y llegara, incluso si no lo vemos (que está ahí) … sientes que todos lo que has hecho no vale la pena porque la verdad es que en el camino … En ese preciso momento te encuentras a ti mismo, y es una sorpresa, es impactante.


La camara.

Hoy he decidido que quiero una cámara. Si una cámara, porque de esta manera puedo ver el mundo de la forma que quiero que sea, la cámara me permite tomar fotos de las cosas hermosas que mis ojos humanos no aprecian cada día, con esto será capaz de tomar fotografías de todas mis dudas, ver el océano y ser capaz de ver su magnitud, veré todas las cosas pequeñas que me pierdo cada vez que salgo de casa. La meta es ver las cosas que la mayoría de días y personas no ven.

Me permitirá tomar fotos de(las cosas feas) lo que las personas dicen que no es normal y sentirme maravillada. Sip esa es toda la idea, sentirme maravillada por algo simple y encontrar belleza en las cosas simples.

Lost along the way.

Ive been thinking that it really doesn't  matter who we are, how happy we are, all the good things we´ve done or the good things we are planning to do, it doesn't  mater if you studied , if your grades are great or you spent the rest of your life getting ready and preparing yourself for the world out there, because that´s all we want : be ready for the world , for the problems, for futures relationships that´s all it matter,all we care about but at the end it really doesn't  matter how smart you are or how many times you didn't go to bed trying to find a away to do better. 


The truth is that there is a point in our life that we feel  lost..like complete lost, empty, here is where all the study and preparation of the world or how many books you´ve read don't matter at all because when this time come and it will, even if you don´t see it, (it is there).... you feel that everything you been doing is not worth it because the truth is that along the way... in that precisely moment is where you find yourself, like your true self and is surprising, is shocking. 



The Camera.

Today I decide that I want a camera.Yes a camera, because maybe this way I can picture the world the way I would like it to be, the camera would let me take pictures of the beautiful things that my human eyes don´t appreciated everyday, with this I´ll be able to take pictures of all my doubts, see the sea and be able to understand it´s magnitude, I will see all the little things that I miss every time I go out of my house. The goal is to learn to see things that most of the days and most of the people don´t see.


It would let me, take pictures of the (ugly things) what people say is no normal and marvel of it. Yes that is the point, feel marvel at something simple and find beauty in common things.

#OTH One Tree hill.

I recently start watching a tv show call One Tree Hill by a friend that recommend it to me. I must say that since I start watching the show I become an addicted to it and I am only in the fist season of 8 seasons what it means that I have way too much for see but really enjoy it. The show is really great and it has become the best thing to do in this Christmas, and the show wouldn't be great if i didn't  have the amazing characters that I´ve being falling in love this week. Every characters is special in their own way, they are very different and in some how it makes the show better to watch and enjoy.


My favorite character so far is Nathan Scott. He is very special in his own way and even at the beginning he is a little of jerk but while I am watching I can see why he acts this way, and I also love him because I´ve watched some episodes of season 7th (Yeah i couldn't resist :) and is great to see him after all the time and see how he changed .


So I will let you a little resume about the show .


The show is set in fictional town Tree Hill in North Carolina and originally follows the lives of two half-brothers, Lucas Scott (Chad Michael Murray) and Nathan Scott (James Lafferty). Their relationship evolves from heartless enemies to caring brothers, and the basketball drama, as well as the brothers' on-again/off-again romances with female characters, are significant elements within the series
The first four seasons of the show focus on the characters' high school years.
The fifth season jumps forward in time four-plus years. The gap is sometimes shown in flashback as the characters struggle with adulthood and return to the town of Tree Hill for various reasons.

People Change.

I want to tell you I was right, I want to be myself with you again, I want to tell you all my secrets and most of all I want to let you know that I am not okay.

But I´ve learn that people change, you are an example of that , you´ve change in so many ways that is almost hard to recognize you, I use to talk to you all night and never feel tired but now I am here alone without you and I am just thinking that I might never know the real you. People change even when you expected that everything stays the same, I am still the same or maybe I´ve change too and I am not able to see it , if I call you , you might answer but then i would have to say my name because you forgot about me and that is a risk I cannot take is better to imagine that you are still the same person I knew .

I just want to travel back in time and say all the things I didn't say.But now is too late, the days where you listen and support me already passed :/ I can´t change who I am and I am not asking you to change but I wont deny that I wish you, where still you, and I was still mean something to you.

People change.
Things go away.
You walk away.

Movie or TV show for Vampire Academy?

On a page on Facebook I saw and read a lot Discussion about if Vampire Academy should be a movie or a tv show?

I personally would love neither a tv show or a movie, the important thing to me is if they are going to do like the book because we all are interesting that what ever we see be the tv show or the movie is that the people who do it keep loyal to the books and fans around the world as like me are expecting the best of what they do. That they keep loyal to Richelle Mead who is the creator of the Vampire Academy books and the character as Rose, Dimitri, Adrian, Christian and Lissa that are the main characters, but what I mean is not that they only stay loyal to this characters but to the all books. 

And not only if it is a tv show or a movie what it matters for is also the people who they will pick to play them that is an essential part of this.Is really important pick the right people who are capable to show the skills, qualities and look like the character because is extremely important for all the fans to feel connected with the character. 

Well all I have to say is that hopefully they do a great job and don't disappointed all fans around the world no matter if it is a tv show or a movie :D

Christmas time.

Christmas or Christmas Day is a holiday observed generally on December 25 to commemorate the birth of Jesus, the central figure of Christianity. The date is not known to be the actualbirthday of Jesus, and may have initially been chosen to correspond with either the day exactly nine months after some early Christians believed Jesus had been conceived,the date of the Romanwinter solstice, or one of various ancient winter festivals. Christmas is central to the Christmas and holiday season, and in Christianity marks the beginning of the larger season of Christmastide, which lasts twelve days.

Although nominally a Christian holiday, Christmas is also celebrated by an increasing number of non-Christians worldwide, and many of its popular celebratory customs have pre-Christian orsecular themes and origins. Popular modern customs of the holiday include gift-giving, music, an exchange of greeting cards, church celebrations, a special meal, and the display of various decorations; including Christmas trees, lights, garlands, mistletoe, nativity scenes, and holly. In addition, several figures, known as Saint Nicholas and certain mythological figures such as Father Christmas and Santa Claus among other names, are associated with bringing gifts to children during the Christmas season.

Stop thinking about Future.

Stop asking me about the future. Stop trying to make things your way, stop telling me what to do but most of all stop trying making me another person who I am not. Take me for what I am, is not that hard just stop trying, stop pretend we all are perfect, happy and flawless because we are not. First accept that is what you got and you must survive this way and let it be … let’s just enjoy the day, the sun, the stars, that hot guy you see every day, enjoy laugh like it was your last day, forget about future and live this present that you won’t be able to live it again but if you are wise you realize that living one life is enough to do all the things you wanted and dreamed.

Character of the week: Santa Claus


One of the problems we have in this world is that too many adults believe in Santa Claus, and too many children don’t
Lee Lauer
A critic is a man who found out when he was about ten that there wasn’t any Santa Claus, and he’s still upset.
James Gould Cozzens
Santa Claus has the right idea: visit people once a year
Victor Borge
I stopped believing in Santa Claus when I was six. Mother took me to see him in a department store and he asked for my autograph.
Shirley Temple
Christmas is a time when kids tell Santa what they want and adults pay for it. Deficits are when adults tell the government what they want and their kids pay for it.
Richard Lamm
Alas! How dreary would be the world if there was no Santa Claus! There would be no childlike faith then, no poetry, no romance to make tolerable this existence.
Francis P. Church
Santa Claus is anyone who loves another and seeks to make them happy; who gives himself by thought or word or deed in every gift that he bestows.
Edwin Osgood Grover
Let me see if I’ve got this Santa business straight. You say he wears a beard, has no discernible source of income and flies to cities all over the world under cover of darkness? You sure this guy isn’t laundering illegal drug money?
Tom Armstrong
There are three stages of a man’s life:
He believes in Santa Claus.
He doesn’t believe in Santa Claus
He is Santa Claus.

In the Tokyo subway

Terry Dobson was traveling on the Tokyo subway when a drunk got on and began to insult all the passengers.
Dobson, who had studied martial arts for some years, challenged the man.
"What do you want?" asked the drunk.
Dobson got ready to attack him. Just then, an old man sitting on one of the seats shouted: "Hey!"
"I’ll beat the foreigner, then I’ll beat you!" said the drunk.
"I like to drink, too," said the old man. "I sit every afternoon with my wife, and we drink sake. Are you married?"
The drunk was confused, and replied: "I have no wife, I have no one. I’m just so terribly ashamed."
The old man asked the drunk to sit beside him. By the time Dobson got off, the man was in tears.

Ask me anything http://formspring.me/Brigettelaurys

Los Barberos no existen.

Un hombre fue a cortar el pelo y la barba. Como siempre sucede, él y el barbero se pusieron a  conversar acerca de esto y aquello, hasta que - comentando un artículo de periódico sobre niños de la calle - el barbero dijo:


- Como usted puede ver, esta tragedia demuestra que Dios no existe. ¿No lees los periódicos? Así que muchas personas sufren, los niños abandonados, no hay tanto crimen. Si Dios existiera, no habría tanto sufrimiento.

- ¿Sabes una cosa?  Los Barberos no existen.

- ¿Qué quieres decir, no existen? Estoy aquí, y yo soy un barbero.

- No existen! - Insistió el hombre. - Porque si lo hicieran, no habría personas con barba y largos cabellos enmarañados como tales.

- Puedo garantizar que los barberos no existen. Pero estas personas no vienen aquí.
- ¡Exactamente! Así, en respuesta a su pregunta, la existencia de Dios, también. Lo que pasa es que la gente no va a él. Si lo hicieran, el diera mas , y no habría tanta miseria en el mundo.


Barbers don’t exist

A man went to trim his hair and beard. As always happens, he and the barber chatted about this and that, until – commenting on a newspaper article about street kids – the barber stated:
- As you can see, this tragedy shows that God doesn’t exist. Don’t you read the papers? So many people suffer, abandoned children, there’s so much crime. If God existed, there wouldn’t be so much suffering.
- You know something? Barbers don’t exist.
- What do you mean, don’t exist? I’m here, and I’m a barber.
- They don’t exist! – insisted the man. – Because if they did, there wouldn’t be people with such longs beards and such tangled hair.
- I can guarantee that barbers do exist. But these people never come in here.
- Exactly! So, in answer to your question, God exists, too. It just so happens that people don’t go to Him. If they did, they would be more giving, and there wouldn’t be so much misery in the world.

Finally read Last Sacrifice.

After all the time I spent just  exited to read Last Sacrifice by Richelle Mead I finally could read it.


OMG OMG OMG the first thing I have to say is that I can't not believe that Vampire Academy is over... I must say that the book surprise me very much, even that I´ve read accidentally some spoilers but still Richelle Mead did what no any writer can do : Keep me interesting, dying and freaking out each step of the book, I was in suspense . 

The journey with Rose, Dimitri and much more people I won't bring up, make the book different from all the books before but without taking the especial part we all love about Vampire Academy. In this book Dimitri fight his daemons, Rose try to fight for her Innocent and for the sake of Lisa, Adrian is always helping, Abe is much more interesting than we ever see and finally I must say that is just about Love... ♥

Richlle Mead interview. Enjoy.

Richelle Mead is hardly a woman that needs an introduction.




As the author of the HUGELY successful Vampire Academy series, one that has taken a firm place in many readers ‘all time favorites’ lists, she is considered a YA celebrity.
When she’s not working on her two other highly popular adult series, Richelle is busy with a Vampire Academy spin-off that is already well under way. With only 48 hours to go till the eagerly anticipated release of Last Sacrifice, Richelle sat with us for a quick chat.

The release date for Last Sacrifice is fast approaching – are you nervous about the fan reaction to the series’ conclusion?

I’m nervous about every book!  I’m kind of a perfectionist because I always think, “Oh, if I could have just gone back one more time, that book could have been even better!”  And yeah, there’s definitely a lot of pressure with the last book in a series.  There’s no way every person will be happy with any series ending, especially when there’s a love triangle involved.  Someone’s going to lose!  That being said, there’s a lot of great things going on in the book, and I’m hoping that even if some people’s guy doesn’t get the girl, they’ll still be happy with the way story wraps up.
Since the success of Vampire Academy, how has your life changed? Do you get recognized on the street?
No, I’m never recognized.  I don’t think authors have as much star power as authors and actors.  Sometimes my name doesn’t even get recognized, though fans of the genre almost always know the series title when they hear it.  But it’s still been a life changer.  It’s heady knowing that what you write reaches and affects so many people, and every day, I get a lot of email from readers talking about the series.  Knowing that so many people are waiting for the next book certainly puts a lot of pressure on me, but I’m really grateful do what I do for a living.  I love my job.

You tweet quite regularly – what is it about twitter that you like?

I like the way Twitter can quickly and easily reach so many readers.  It’s nice to be able to give last-minute updates about a book or signing and know they’re getting to people in time.  I also like that it gives me a chance to be casual and communicate to readers about the daily goings-on in my life.  It’s unfortunate that I’m unable to answer all my email, but with Twitter, I hope I’m still able to share myself with readers and help them know me better.

If you could spend a day with one of your characters from Vampire Academy, which would it be?

Oh, man.  I don’t know if I’d want to hang out with them.  Bad things are always happening!  We’d get attacked by Strigoi or stumble into some wacky mishap.

Do you have a favourite scene or moment  from the series?

I think the ending of Shadow Kiss is my favorite.  It’s terrible and heart-breaking, but it’s probably one of the most powerful pieces I’ve written in any of my books.  People were so devastated by the ending, but I had always envisioned that happening, from the very first day I started the series.  So, it’s really amazing as an author to be able to have written something like that and have it deliver exactly the impact I wanted.

How does it feel to be saying goodbye to characters you’ve spent so long creating?

It’s bittersweet.  In some ways, it’s nice to have the opportunity to move onto something new.  As much as I love these characters, I’m not sure I could write about them for the next fifty years.  But, as an author, it’s also really nice being able to write characters you know so well.  It makes it easy to jump right into a book, so I’ll lose a little of that now.  The great thing about keeping the world alive with a spin-off series, however, is that I can always pull any of these characters back if I miss them too much.

Is there something or someone in particular we should watch out for in Last Sacrifice?

I think by the end of this book, readers should have a pretty good idea of which characters are going to be in the spin-off series.
