Ok I'm guilty in not updating soon and I admit it, but, gods, this summer is insane!!!

The construction work is almost over- I will soon have the whole second floor of our house for myself- Wow! I love my mom!

But that same mom made a great mess.... let's just say there was a baby, a jealous wife, a midnight call, police and two men involved... *shakes head* sometimes my mother's life is better than a soap opera.... too bad that I had to go through the whole thing without anyone asking me if I actually want to. Drama and a comedy. I'm glad it is over.

My SAT course was great fun- It was in another town, I slept in the dorms of the uni I want to study in next year and my roommate was one of the coolest people I have ever met! The other girls and boys from our floor were also great and I made some interesting friendships which was quite surprising because I'm still on the "there are no friends"phase and I still think friendship is overrated. But I guess Mims (my roommate's nickname) managed to help me heal a little... Anyway, the uni was great and the town was even greater- the disco clubs were A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!! I'll show some pics later.

When I came back home after the course I signed in the uni I got in ( the uni I am taking the SAT for is another story- I am applying for it for Spring 2010 ) and I am now officially a college student!!! I went to sign in with a friend of mine and we had a great time searching for the books we needed for the first semester. I found out that most of my classmates from highschool are in the same uni ( well, it was not so difficult to realise that considering the fact that this is the oldest and most honorable uni in my country :P ) What was funnier- the people from the group of English in which I was preparing for this uni the whole school year signed in the same uni and subject I did- English Philology! So it seems that my social life in this uni will be great because I practically know everyone in there!

Now I am supervising the final construction work ( my mom went back to Italy to work ) and am preparing for TOEFL on 29th of August....

Considering the fact that I am not going to have a vacation this summer, I bought myself a little reward- a ticket to the best Bulgarian singer for all times!!! The tickets for her concert are only comparable to Madonna's tickets who also has a concert in my country this year. I am not Madonna's fan but I ADORE that Bulgarian singer and I think I have translated some of her songs for you. Her concert will be my reward for all the hard work this summer and for the next summer I plan a vacation in the USA- it will be double vacation, to compensate for this summer :P

So this is all from me for now, I am going back to studying. I hope everyone is good and enjoying the summer?

Oh, and, Kelly, I can't wait to talk to you about your cruise!!

Bye guys!!

*hugs*
*air kisses*

Writer's Block: Birthday Shout-out

Happy birthday, J.K. Rowling! Which of her seven Harry Potter novels do you think is the most satisfying read?
Awww, is it today???? Wow! Well, the 6th book was the most heart breaking for me... and the more heart breaking, the better it is in my opinion ^_^

Harry Potter and the Half-blood Prince.....


I watched Harry Potter 6 from 10:15 PM to 1:00 AM.... :P:P:P You ask why? Well, I was too impatient to watch it with my friends in a more human hour... ^_^

The movie was worse than I expected but I have seen worser.... Still, this is the worst part from the HP series. But I enjoyed it and felt strong emotions because the movie,no matter how far it was from the book in scenes and dialogue, reminded me of the book which was, in my personal opinion, brilliant.

Dumbledore has always been my favourite character along with Snape and the fact that I knew what happens in the 7th book helped me in watching the movie ( or maybe just made me more teary? :P ).

In the end, when Snape pointed his wound towards Dumbledore, I didn't know why I was crying- was I crying because of Dumbledoe's death or was I crying because of Snape's position- to kill the only person who trusted him, the only person he could call, more or less, his friend? I think I cried for both of them... and it was devastating. At least when I read the 6th book, I cried only for one of them and then when I cried for Snape in book 7 I had already forgotten about Dumbledore. Now the pain was double because I could see the chaos in both characters, the merciless situation they were both forced to play their roles in... and what was the worst- they were palying willingly because there was no other option. The conversation between Snape and Dumbleodore when Snape said he didn't want to "do it anymore" was just a proof how painful was his decision to kill Dumbledore in the end...
 
I bow before Alan Rickman's talent, he played this scene on the tower brilliantly, his face was full of pain and emotional struggle but everything remained subtle, under control... Snape had no choice, just like in the book, he had to do it, but it didn't make it any easier.  I realised that Snape was not the bad guy a long time ago, back in season 3 when he protected Hermoine and Harry from Lupin when the last became a warewolf. It was so obvious- Snape was more concerned in keeping Harry behind him than fighting the warewolf. Good memories...

The movie did not represent Dumbledore's death well, the movie did not emphasize on this character enough at all and this was something which infuriated me greatly! For god's sake, he is the most important figure in the 6th book, not the romance between the teenagers!!! That last evidence of his power- the fire scene, was the only thing I liked, it was done in a fantastic way, it made me cry for I knew this was the last time I was seeing Dumbledore saving Harry, being strong and brilliant... Of course, his moral strenght on the tower was immense, but the fire scene was something different, something so good... But while I was watching the ridiculous scene with the lighted wounds, I remembered Joanne Rowling's words about the phoenix which was leaving the castle, "which was leaving Harry".... I cried on my way back in 1 AM... it was not a good movie, but it was a good book and in the memory of it, I will tolerate the movie.

Harry Potter was the book of my late childhood and early teenagehood and as such I love it dearly... Some may think this is a movie for kids and a book not worth reading, but for me it is a precious memory filled with nostalgy, a little sadness and so, so much love... :)

Writer's Block: Parental Involvement

Are you friends with your parents?
More like *I-am-the-parent-and-she-is-the-child*.....  *sighs*

from 3 to 6, where 3 is the weakest possible grade, I have

5. 96

in my English exam.

Yes- the one which native speakers take it with a low score!!!!! I expected 4.80- 4.90 and in my wildest dreams I thought of 5.10-5.20........  I never, ever thought about a grade over 5.50!!!!! And 5.96 is one unhuman grade!!!!!!!!!!!!! I can't believe it!!!!!!!!!!

Almost_Heavenly is my new twitter account :P

Hi guys!

My summer SATcourse started with maths and my head hurts badly.... I'm afraid I'm not going to pass SAT from the 1st time because of that stupid subject.... :((((( *sobs*  I hate SAT!!!! I hate it!!!!!!!!!!

But the bright side is that the gilrs (and the boys!) here are  really cool and my roommate is quite the interesting case :P The university which organises my course and in which I want to go has the biggest library on the Balkan peninsula and I can die happy after reading all my favourite journals, magazines, newspapers and books in it yesterday.... ok, maybe I am a book maniac but that library is HEAVEN!!

My mom lost my cat. *sobs again*

I'm waiting for the results from my English exam from last week and considering how desperate I am due to the maths, I am on the verge of a nerve crisis... I want to have good results and be accepted at least in the first university because to pass the SAT is mission impossible for the moment....

Anyway, I hope you guys are doing ok, I miss you! But summer RL is the coolest thing ever! So don't expect me to write or comment much :P sorry ^_^ I will make up to all of you when I pass SAT, I promise! Until then, see you in facebook :P

*hugs*


PS. Maggie, mi amor, I am amazed at how fast you found me in fb! *hugs*

I am going to the funniest town in my country where 60% of the population are college students and where my 3-week SAT preparation course will begin. I will sleep in the campus of the university I want to get into and I am really excited to meet my roommates :)

Hope you are all ok and enjoying your summer!

*hugs flist*



PS. I joined facebook- I am Milva Matseva there if anyone is interested :)
