Hi! So, I haven't even noticed that I've not written here in a whole month. I've been working hard these past two weeks, only having one day off throughout those days. It was not awesome. I have a day off today, finally. And then there will be 4 more days of work and finally a whole weekend off from me. Yay! I've slept uptil 1 p.m. today and it was glorious, finally a good long night of sleep.

It's really humid and hot right now and not just outside, but it's hot in the flat too. I can't stand this kind of weather. It rained in the night, but it didn't make anything better, still so humid!

I finished reading The Maze Runner, which was a very entertaining book. The first half of it wasn't that much interesting, but then when it picked up in the middle I couldn't stay away from this book. Now, I'm definitely looking for the movie to come out. And I've bought the next part of the series, but I haven't started reading it yet.

I'm slowly reading the Sandman comics. It is soooo good. Neil Gaiman knows how to write good stories. His new book The Ocean at the end of the Lane is out and I want to read it, but I have so many books to read, so I don't know when I'm going to buy it and read it. But I want to read it so bad!!!

And I can't find a place to buy True Lives Of The Fabulous Killjoys comic book, because shipping from USA will cost me like 25 dollars and that's too much for such a book and the doesn't deliver it to Lithuania. So, the only thing that I'm hoping for is when all of the issues will come out, maybe they'll make one big book that will be available in Europe. *fingers crossed*

Somehow I'm not that excited about bandombigbang this year. I'll probably read some of the fic, but not everything like I did some years ago. And really, I haven't read a lot of BBB fic last year too, but this year and at this moment right now I'm more into reading Teen Wolf fiction. Just the same as I was into Inception fanfiction last year. But I haven't forgot you Bandom! Not ever!

Apparently, there's a cherry blossom park in Vilnius, which I kind of knew existed, but I've never been there. I finally went there last week when the trees were blooming. I took my new camera with me, to try it out. And so here are some photos from that park.
photos )
And the camera kind of sucks at taking nature photos. At 14 megapixels, it doesn't take better photos than my Canon with 5MPs. But Canon>Olympus, at least, this is what happened in my practice. Or it's a possibility that I still haven't mastered that camera. And I'm thinking that I'll be filming videos with that camera, so my other camera's batteries wouldn't drain so fast.

I ordered the Sandman slipcase set from amazon today because it was 96£ ant not 150£. I wanted to read this comic for a long time now and I'm just really anxious about not liking it. But I really hope that I do.

The book that I ordered last week called Maze Runner has arrived yesterday. I've started reading it a bit, just the first few pages. The writing is good, but we'll see how the story goes.

There's been a lot more work back at the drug store, since one of my colleagues has been transferred to another drug store. It's more fun for me now. Slightly less time sitting at the computer doing manager stuff and more time talking and advising patients. That's what I like about my work.

Just watched the new Supernatural episode. And OMG, it was awesome! This season has been so good and I don't want it to end. There's only 2 episode left and I think I'm going to be left crying in the end, just as always, as I cried when Bobby died and then when Charlie was reading The Hobbit to her mother. This show gives so many sad feels it's not funny.

Teen Wolf is coming back on June 3rd. I CANNOT WAIT. I want season 3 so bad, it's going to be badass, I can feel it! And I've been reading so many sterek fanfics, that's really not healthy. WHATEVER.

I literally just focus on one ship at a time and when I get bored I just move on. My all time OTP is and always be Gerard/Frank, I'm just obsessed. And then there was Ryan/Brendon and Brendon/Spencer and then there was Eames/Arthur and now it's Sterek. I'm just not alright. What's going to be next?

I've been procrastinating with reading books. I bought Pete Wentz's book, and I'm just on chapter 19. It's a slow read with this book. And Game Of Thrones is just lying on my table waiting for me to pick it up.

And yesterday I ordered a new book called The Maze Runner by James Dashner. And I don't know if it's a good book, but they're making it into movies and the only reason I know about this is because Dylan O'Brien has been cast as the main character. If it were another actor that I didn't care about, I think I wouldn't even consider buying the book and thinking about seeing the movie. But here we are, because Dylan O'Brien is fucking awesome!

And now I'm considering buying a collection of stories called Unnatural Creatures, collected by Neil Gaiman, it should be an interesting book.

And speaking about movies, I'm going to see Iron Man 3 this weekend and then Star Trek is coming out in 2 weeks, which is so fucking exciting!

And I fucking got an inspiration to write something in this journal. Yay!

So, really, I've got nothing worthy to write. But here we go! =D

I've not written about the last Conventional Weapons single, which is freaking amazing! Burn Bright is my absolute favourite, but Surrender the Night grew on me. This single is just amazing! Now MCR should release their new album, so we could gush about that!

Work has been killing me. Most of the times I work from 7 a.m. which means that I need to get up at 5 a.m. so I can't really go to sleep at like 12 or 2 a.m. I need sleep, so this leaves me with so little internet time, it sucks! But work is work and I love it. But one of my colleagues is on sick leave until next Monday, which fucking sucks, but we'll pull through somehow - overtime all the way. I just need to ask my manager to pay us the overtime.

I've had little progress with reading A Game of Thrones, but it's because I'm kind of busy. But this book is SO GOOD. I CAN'T EVEN! I got hooked at the beginning of the book. I was reading the prologue and I was like OMG WHAT HAPPENS NEXT I NEED TO READ THIS FASTER. Yeah, it was emotional for me. It's been a long time since I've got invested in a book this much.

And I ordered H.P.Lovecraft: The complete fiction, which I can't wait to read! I've never read Lovecraft before, IDK why.

I got another wisdom tooth removed last week and then this week I'm going to my dentist to mend hopefully the last tooth for the moment and then I'll be free from the dentist hell for at least 4 months. I hate my teeth so much!

OK, so... I finally went to the movies to see Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters. IT WAS SO GOOD. It was everything I needed in that movie. I loved the soundtrack so much!

And I'm sorry I haven't been commenting on your posts, but I'm reading everything, I promise!

Happy 2013!

First thing I'd like to say, dear [personal profile] turps, I just got your card. It really brightened my day after a very hard day of work today. Thank you!!!!

My New Year's celebration was awesome! Met some new people, friends of friends, who were super awesome and after knowing them for just a day, I couldn't resist inviting them to my birthday party! The party endedaround 6 a.m. so I think it was pretty awesome! My new year's resolution along with one of my friends was to meet the new year without feeling sick or puking. And we both managed that! Now to make this whole year's parties pukeless... That would be great.

And I promised to show you my costume )

My "The Perks of Being A Wallflower" book arrived yesterday. I've been wanting to read this book for a long time and now I'll finally do that. And maybe by the time that I've read it, my movie theater is going to finally screen it.

I hope your New Year's celebration was good! =D

I'm at my parents' home right now, while they are in Vilnius in my flat because they are going away to visit my brother tomorrow and their train is leaving early in the morning from Vilnius. And I'm back at their place to watch over theirs and mine, I guess, paranoid cat.

I have 5 days off, including today. It's like a mini vacation, but then I'll have to work 8 days straight after. But after that it's going to be Marilyn Manson concert. Yay! I've listened to his new album and I quite liked it.

And I'm listening to The Avengers OST and it's awesome!!! =DDD

And OMG! Can I talk about Kim Rhodes (she plays Sheriff Jodie Mills on Supernatural), OK?? She is a fangirl just like us, this is super amazing. Just watch this. How she FLAILS and fangirls over Jensen... Just epic! =D

Oh, and BTW I bought Black Widow: Deadly Origin comic and I'm just waiting for it to arrive. OMG! And I read the Joker comic book and it's super amazing. I really love the portrayal of him.

And I finally finished reading American Gods book by Neil Gaiman (as if you don't know that it was written by him) and I'm just at loss of words from it - it's fantastic, magnificent, amazingly MIND BLOWING!!! I'm surely going to read it over and over again!

1. I've been going through my first posts in this journal, tagging them and making some of them public and correcting some grammar. The interesting thing that I found was in the first month of blogging (January 2009) I called myself stupid like 10 times... I was so insecure back them, it's really awful. I think that right now at this point of my life I feel more confident and I feel more love for myself than I did back in 2009.

2. I feel that my spoken English is worsening. Yesterday in the drug store we had an English speaking patient, my god, I thought I'd kill myself over my inability to communicate. I understood everything perfectly what he was saying, but my mind couldn't even string a perfectly understandable sentence. I think it was because my mind was still focused on Lithuanian and Russian, that English didn't want to go out and play.... FUCK YOU BRAIN!

3. OMG, and those Frank's interviews with Zack Vengeance are EPIC! That's actually false, my mother is fucking saint!

4. I've already read a third of Tinker, Tailor book and it is fucking amazing! At first, I thought that the book was going to be hard for me to read, but thankfully when I started reading it became apparent that the book wasn't that hard. Just sometimes I need to look up some words that I don't understand or just don't know the meaning of.

But the book is so beautifully written, I love it!
nadya: (UA: I'm a GAZELLE)
Yeah, what it says in the title, I'm forcing myself to update. I promised myself to post at least a weekly update.

Vacation has been over for the past 2 weeks, right now I have 2 more days out of 8 till I have one day off. I feel that 2 weeks off were enough for the body to forget how it is to work 8 days straight. I'll get over it.

I started reading John le Carré novel Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy. After watching the movie I decided the book will be even more amazing than the movie. I'm just on my 15th page, but it's already awesome. I just can't even word it quite right to express my joy over reading this book.

I ordered the book from Amazon along with Looking For Alaska by John Green, Good Omens by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett and American Gods by Neil Gaiman.

Now I feel I have enough reading to do and there are still so many books to read.

And OH MY GOD?!?!?! What is Frank counting down to?????? He is a fucking tease!!!

And I just want to rec this fic called Ass-Kickin' Chick Music by ladyfoxxx. It's girl!Frank/girl!Gerard. And I'm a sucker for femmeslash and Frank/Gerard is just my ultimate OTP. And ladyfoxxx is an amazing writer. Go read it, if you haven't done that already.

And oh, god, so many AND, but did you listen to the new The Used album, it's just magnificent, IDK, it's amazing and I love how on Tumblr lots of people think that Getting Over You is about Gerard. It's a stupid little thought, but I don't know why, I thought about it too...

OK, I'm going to back to reading Tinker, Tailor.

1. I'm feeling miserable because I'm sick, I'm coughing a lot and have a bit of a head cold... And I've having bouts of coughing fit every 10-15 minutes, which has been driving me crazy since Wednesday.

And I've been making lots of people annoyed at me because in the last week I had two 2,5 hour trips on train and two 1,5 hour trips on a bus with the same horrible coughing fit that I have right now. At the end of the journey I just wanted to stand up and say "I'm sorry, but I'm so sick I cannot stop coughing". I think everyone wanted to kill me, I wanted to kill me.

Yesterday I had a coughing fit for about 5 minutes without stopping and my medicine wasn't helping, the coughing fit brought me to tears and I thought I would throw up. FUCK YOU BODY! Get well already!

2. So, I've been miserable all morning since I woke up and then I decided, if I'm feeling miserable I'll just sit at home till I get a little bit better and just be lazy. And by being lazy I mean just sit and the computer and watch stuff like brotherhood 2.0 on YouTube and reading Keltie Colleen's book Rocketters, Rockstars and Rockbottom. It's a great book to make you feel sad and happy at the same time...

3. I've been thinking of making a goal of reading more books this year. When I was in uni, I didn't really have that much free time to read recreationally, all the reading I did was something to do with studies. And now I think that now when I have free time I don't need to study I could definitely read more books.

And I already started reading more books, my friend A has been helpful. Firstly she got me acquainted to vlogbrothers and brotherhood 2.0 (which is where 2 brother were communicating via videos for a whole year, without any textual communication). One of the brothers, John Green, is a writer of young adult fiction.

And my friend gave me 2 of his books to read. One was his last book, which I read first, named The Fault in Our Stars and then his first novel Looking for Alaska. And let me tell you, those are one hell of AMAZING AWESOME EPIC books I've ever had fortune to read! You think you know what's going to happen and BAM, totally different thing happens in an epic way, that makes you sometimes laugh really hard or fucking cry your eyes out! You should definitely check those books out and he has published more than 2 books, that I haven't read yet, but I think they are going to be awesome too.

4. I visited my friends in Kaunas this Friday and it was amazing! Went to a bar on Friday night, had a great time. The great thing is that the bartenders recognize our group now, my
friends from Kaunas come to that bar almost every week, and every time I go to Kaunas, we visit that bar. It's a very EPIC bar. =D

So, when we were at the bar that Friday, we started talking that Marilyn Manson is going to have a concert in Lithuania on June 12th and that maybe we should go. And we decided to buy tickets. My friend A still can't believe that when we came back to her place after the bar, she bought the tickets right away...

And now I'm going to attend a Marilyn Manson concert on June 12th. I never thought that I would do that, ever!

5. And on Saturday one of our friends had a housewarming party. It's a really crazy idea to me, that any 24-25 year old person would have his/her own flat at this age. I don't know when I'm going to even start thinking of buying my own flat, I still need to think through a lot of things in my life to make that decision.

Life's been good so far. Got my allowance recently and have been spending it on clothes, because I seriously need a change of wardrobe. I even bought myself a skirt, and I look a like a school girl in it. I bought a Lady Gaga Born This Way T-shirt in black, I just couldn't not buy it. It's awesome!

And I've been to the gym 8 times already and I love it so, so much! I started liking running, I guess it's easier for me to run on the treadmill than running in the open air. And I found out that there's scales in the gym and apparently I weight only 50,6 kg (111 pounds) and that's kind of awful because 3 months ago I weighted 54-56 kg. I seriously need to get my physical form back.

And I met a cute trainer in the gym today. OMG! OK, I've never really gushed about cute guys, but he was cute and we talked a bit and as usual I was awkward at the end of the conversation. And if I see him again I don't what I'm going to do, although, I'll furiously blush and try not to get awkward, again...

And the most amazing thing that I bought recently is the full collection of all stories about Sherlock Holmes. It's amazing! And I even found it in my native language (Russian). I didn't really want to read it in Lithuanian (it's the official language in the country).

I still have some kind of prejudice of reading in Lithuanian, I do it when it's the original language of the story/novel/article, but when it comes to everything else, I'd rather read it in English or Russian. I think this will pass, but it'll take some time.

So, I finally moved into my new home, a one room flat. Some time should pass till I get used to so much space for just myself.

My pharmacist practise licence is already made. All the students (including me) thought that it would take like a month for the Drug Controlling Department to make those licences for us. But yay, the licence is made and I'm going to start working full-time now.

Now that the studies are over and there's apparently more free time I've started reading books again. I started reading The Hunchback of Notre-Dame last summer and didn't finish it, hopefully I will read it this summer. =)

I finally got the pictures from the graduation party. There's like 900 photos and they are really fucking awesome! I'll just show you a group photo of people who were there.

I've just noticed that on the DW updated page, there's a choose random icon button. It's pretty awesome! But I think it's more useful when someone has a lot of icons, I just have 15. And I think I need to change every one of them.

And the update date button is super useful because it usually takes me about 30-50 minutes to write an update. Thank you, DreamWidth, for these 2 features! =D

On the final day of the trip I finished rereading Lord of the rings. The first time I read it in Russian (mother tongue) and this time I read it in English. And I loved the original more than the translation. When I finished the book, I had one thing on my mind I want to read this again. And my brother said that if you want to, you can. But then I corrected myself and said that I will reread this book every year. Let's see how this happens! =D

And I have this urge to rewatch the LOTR movies again, for the Nth time.

My parents are going to visit my godmother, my mother's one of the best friends, this Friday, without me, of course. Because someone should stay and watch the cat. At first I was so annoyed with the news, but now I kind of calmed down. But still, I haven't seen my Godmother for 2 years or even more. But I did show my displease to my parents, but what can I do? Nothing, really. Because someone should still stay and watch the cat. =D He could die from loneliness without us.

But since they are leaving I'm planning on rewatching the LOTR movies for sure, maybe even making it a marathon.

And people, did you see the A very Potter Musical sequel. It's amazing! Umbridge was hilarious. And I think that the actor that played her was the same who played Voldy in the first part.

P.S. Who's the real Ian?

And it took me almost 2 hours to post this.

I think the new Avenged Sevenfold album is pretty awesome! The song Fiction is amazing! And I listened to it just one time. It's beautiful!

I'm back home to my parents' flat. Finally, some peace and quite from my room-mates. Four day break from university 'cause it's national holiday in the country on the 16th of February. That's why we get some time off.

I had one lab work in the university today and you could feel that all the student body was going to go home today. And everyone was like have a good break and have a great holiday. And by that they totally didn't mean the national holiday, they meant the Valentine's day. =D

And I'm almost finished with the book. I've read the story about Coraline and I think it's amazing. And I began reading the other short stories - I loved the 'October in the chair'. Neil writes amazing stuff.

I can't believe I found this book in a book store. The selection of English books in Lithuanian bookstores is kind of tragic. Only sometimes, I'm able to find something good to read. Usually, I read books in Russian, especially when it's an English author and I can't find the original book. I just love reading books in the original language. Too bad I only speak 3 languages.

But I couldn't believe my eyes when I went to the book store today and in the English language section I found this book. I just grabbed it, turned it over to see the price and without a second thought went to the cash register. I was that sure, that I would love this book. I've read so much about Neil Gaiman, I know he's an amazing writer. And I finally get to experience this on my own.

I don't think I'll be able to find more books by Neil in the book stores. We're that deprived, we don't even have comic books, just one or two years ago one of the publishing company began selling translated manga. And the only decent stuff I found was Hellsing. That's it. I'm waiting for the day when I'll be able to buy comic books in Lithuania.

Saw Avatar in 3D today with my brother and father. It was the first time of me seeing a film in 3D and it was kind of cool, but my eyes hurt in the end a little bit. Plus I had to wear my normal glasses and the 3d glasses, it wasn't that comfortable. I don't really mind.

The film was amazing, the special effects and the music. It was a really great spectacle. The beginning of the film kind reminded me of this book by Harry Harrison "Deathworld". The movie has a bit of elements from it, like how the natives live with the planet in peace and the other, the so called aliens, are fighting with it. And then one of "the aliens" becomes one of the native ones... And the he becomes the chosen one, Toruk Makto, and it was kind of a cliché that I think most of the people watching predicted.

Really, the movie is worth watching, especially for 3D effects.

I realised how I can put music in my mobile phone using miscro SD card yesterday. What can I say? Some things tend to get clear to me after a long time. I am stupid and, as usual, I know it. So, now my ringtone is MCR - I'm not okay. I couldn't find a more suitable ringtone for my phone. But no one is phoning me, so I can't hear how awesome it is.

It's an mazing day, unlike yesterday. Today I went to the bookstore, hoping to find some good CDs and books there. And guess what? I finally found Liza Minnelli's CDs. And I bought 'The Essential' - compilation of her songs. Listening to it right now, I love her voice so much. She's so amazing. Aaaand, I bought 'The Tales of Beedle the Bard' by J.K.Rowling. I don't know why I bought it, but I definitily will enjoy reading those stories. I feel like a little kid now. =]

I hope now one will spoil my happy day. The only thing that can spoil this beautiful day - it's studying, but let's not talk about it. Plus, after the first week of studies, I can surely say that this semester will be very hard. I don't know how I will survive it.
