Nature

You can say nature is the place where we all belong,  our only home.
Human civilization, it all emerged from nature. The amount of things we learned from it is indefinite. From the way we talk, move, socialize, love, and live; we could not thank nature enough.
When you think about it, nature is simply our inherent instincts getting implemented in everyday life. Surely we could never grow apart from it.
Some of the major example of what nature had taught us is how to build a civilization. Humans are lucky enough to become the most intelligent creatures on the planet. We build houses, connections, tools, and costumize it according to our personalities so that they can fit in our conventional, everyday life.
Mankind have come a long way from being primitive creatures into modern civilization. And that does not come in a blink of an eye.

We build houses, connections, tools, and costumize it according to our personalities so that they can fit in our conventional, everyday lifes.
But then comes the real question, 'What have we done for nature itself?'
Some unpopular opinion says that Mankind is earth's most major parasites. This is a major issue.
Nature is the most beautiful and attractive surrounding around us which make us happy and provide us natural environment to live healthy. Our nature provides us variety of beautiful flowers, attractive birds, animals, green plants, blue sky, land, running rivers, sea, forests, air, mountains, valleys, hills and many more things. Our God has created a beautiful nature for the healthy living of us. All the things we use for our living are the assets of nature which we should not spoil and damage.
We should not destroy the originality of the nature and should not imbalance the ecosystem cycle. Our nature provides us beautiful environment to live and enjoy so it is our responsibility to keep it clean and away from all the damages. In the modern era, many selfish and bad activities of the human being have disturbed the nature to a great extent. But we all should try to maintain our nature’s beauty.
Nature is an integral part of our lives. But even while we appreciate the blessings she bestows on us, we forget that we are plundering her treasures and thereby denying our children the pleasure of enjoying nature in all her abundance and variety in the future. The beauty of nature has been extolled in the works of poets and artists. When Wordsworth describes the daffodils dancing in the breeze or when our eyes alight on a painting by William Turner, our hearts are filled with an indescribable emotion.
If a mere representation can move us so much, imagine the power of the real thing. If you have seen Massachusetts during fall season when the leaves turn yellow, ochre, and red, you can never forget it in your lifetime.

Nature has myriad facets. It keeps changing from season to season, from minute to minute. If the sea was a bright blue in the morning, by noon it has become an emerald green hue. The colors of the sky keep changing throughout the day, from pale pink at dawn to a dazzling blue at mid morning and a bright orange by sunset and purple by twilight. Nature reflects our moods. When the sun shines, we feel happy and hopeful.

Holidays!

bonne journée; bienvenue mes amies!
Holiday season has just passed and finally we're back to school.
Here i am back at it again with a blog nobody's been waiting for!

Okay so I am going to present to the world whatever the hey I've been working my bum off all along holidays.

I can't exactly say they were lit per se, but they were definitely not full of humdrum either. I managed to do things like improving my hobbies (drawing, singing, dancing) while also trying to exercise regularly so my muscles won't dissapear.

For the first few days i couldn't really figure out anything to do to spend my time on so i just stay at home surfing the internet. I felt like I need to go out of the boundaries sometimes so for some time i had been rocking a very unhealthy lifestyle by eating whatever i've always been longing to binge in. 

Filled my days with a pile of peppermint candies, coke zero's, caffeine, cakes, chocolates, and just everything. I slept for only 5-6 hours and did things according to my convenience. Thoughts? It felt awesome.

I tried to find more activities to drown in whilst waiting for New Year's to come. I called a good friend of mine and we went to explore places and took some photos!

 

We went to various places such as the City Hall, Braga, and Paris van Java. We also made some melodies along the venture (she brought an ukulele with her LOL).

I didn't go outdoor much after that, i spent it on working on drawing projects and improving my skills in literature. Here are some of the work I made.





I had so much fun in the process. Art has always been my ultimate passion.

I suppose that sums up everything i did in my vacation. I genuinely hope that it amused you and may i wish you a good day.

Influential People: William Shakespeare

William Shakespeare was an English poet, playwright, and actor, widely regarded as the greatest writer in the English language and the world's pre-eminent dramatist. He is often called England's national poet, and the "Bard of Avon". His extant works, including collaborations, consist of approximately 38 plays, 154 sonnets, two long narrative poems, and a few other verses, some of uncertain authorship. His plays have been translated into every major living language and are performed more often than those of any other playwright.

At the age of 18, he married Anne Hathaway, with whom he had three children: Susanna, and twins Hamnet and Judith. Few records of Shakespeare's private life survive, which has stimulated considerable speculation about such matters as his physical appearance, sexuality, and religious beliefs, and whether the works attributed to him were written by others.

His early plays were primarily comedies and histories, and these are regarded as some of the best work ever produced in these genres. He then wrote mainly tragedies until about 1608. In his last phase, he wrote tragicomedies, also known as romances, and collaborated with other playwrights.

Many of his plays were published in editions of varying quality and accuracy during his lifetime.

In the 20th and 21st centuries, his works have been repeatedly adapted and rediscovered by new movements in scholarship and performance. His plays remain highly popular, and are constantly studied, performed, and reinterpreted in diverse cultural and political contexts throughout the world.

Entry 4: My Most Unforgettable Moment

A Farewell

My most unforgettable moment is probably at the time when I underwent my most recent graduation ceremony in my junior high.
The said event actually started with a series of plights. I was totally unprepared physically. I felt ill, my heels hurt a lot, I messed my make-ups and hair-dos, I left my invitation card at home, and the road was utterly hectic with traffic jams.
What about my mental condition? Evidently, I was so excited I can't help to get nauseated. Well, it's my graduation ceremony, after all.
Fortunately, as the day went along, I made it to fix all the unwanted problems.
Actually, the thing that I was really looking forward to was my performance. To be clear, I got to perform a song in front of the graduates. The song's lyrics were fully composed of a formerly made poem. It encompassed a message directed to our utmost best friends. We performed as a group. The song had relatively high notes; the prior fact made me quite nervous.

The time had finally come. We've spent a lot of time to practice for this very moment. It was time to give my all.
And, we made it safely! Horray! I said 'safely' because it was.. not a perfect performance per se, but was good enough to not get our pride sacrificed. We told each other to not sweat it.
Subsequently, I enjoyed the rest of the day with a smile widely plastered across my face because it went really smooth.
After the event had ended, because it was a farewell ceremony, I took a lot of pictures with my friends. And, I got a picture with my crush! It was like a combo bonus so I couldn't help to squeal upon it.
At the end of the day, I took a studio picture with some of my best friends. I came home pretty late but it was worth it!

I hope I can share more moments in this page, as I have treated it as a, more or less, diary. See you around in another time.
