Long time no see...

Well, I'm back. Sort of.

I decided to check in my blog after some distasteful comments. I ended up changing the design. But things are different. Obviously I'm righting in English, which is something I decided I ought to do, because whenever I start wandering about things I do it in English.

It's late, I have a driver's test tomorrow, so I shan't be long.

All I've got to say (and what motivated me to write here today) is that I was wrong on my last post. 2009 was definitely a good year, but 2010 found a way to suck more than I could have imagined. I really hope I'm not mistaken about this year.

I'll try to write more, to content those who still spend their time reading this, but I shall make no promises that I can't fulfill.

For now I'll leave you with some random notes that passed my head or that caught my eyes:
"And the wild regrets and the bloody sweats, none knew so well as I: for he who lives more lives than one, more deaths than one must die". (Oscar Wilde, 1898)
"Le mystère de l'amour est plus grand que le mystère de la mort". (Oscar Wilde, 1893)
"Happy families are all alike; every unhappy family is unhappy in its own way". (Leo Tolstoy, 1875-77)
"Romance only dies with life. No pair of pincers will ever pull it out of us". (E. M. Forster, 1908)

Hehe, posting in english, although few people can read it....

I just wonder where did you get those phrases, since you don't have the habbit to read the modernism classics, but though...

Haven't much to say

You're probably the only person who still reads this, so English is not a problem, I guess...

As for the quotes: the first I read when I was researching Oscar Wilde for my paper on The Portrait of Dorian Gray, and the second I saw at wikiquote when I was searching the first one to put here. Tolstoy's quote is actually the first sentence of the book I'm reading (Anna Karenina). As for the last quote, I don't really remember how I got there, but one link lead to the other and I ended up on Mr. Forster's quotes.

And, by the way, you probably already know this, but I passed my driver's test! =D
