The Notebook ♥

So it’s not gonna be easy. It’s gonna be really hard. We’re gonna have to work at this every day, but I want to do that because I want you. I want all of you, for ever, you and me, every day. Will you do something for me, please? Just picture your life for me? 30 years from now, 40 years from now? What’s it look like? If it’s with him, go. Go! I lost you once, I think I can do it again. If I thought that’s what you really wanted. But don’t you take the easy way out.

– Noah (The Notebook)

Breaking Dawn

La noche pasada fue protagonizada por los MTV Movie Awards 2011. Muchos quedaron enojados, ya que la Twilight Saga ganó la mayoría de premios, como era de esperarse. Mientras ellos esten haciendo películas, serán los ganadores. Por qué? Simple y sencillamente por el buen libro que es.

Como una “Twi-Hard”, debo confesar que las películas NO  se comparan a los libros. Si, estoy decepcionada pero what the hell! No hay nada más emocionante que ver la historia de tu saga favorita en un audiviosual. Poco a poco las películas han ido mejorando, este es el principio del último libro y NO AGUANTO LAS GANAS POR VERLA!

Gracias a los MTV Movie Awards, ahora ya tenemos acceso al trailer de esta película. Como es tradición, fue presentado en estos premios y ya es un HIT.

Este trailer tiene TODO lo que los fanáticos de esta Saga estaban esperando! La boda de la pareja perfecta, la luna de miel (que en el libro es extremadamente sexy, así que espero que sea igual en la película) y el principio del embarazo de Bella.

Para todos aquellos que no son fanáticos, que odian a Twilight y lo ven como basura dejen que les diga que tienen que leer los libros antes de criticar las películas 🙂

Aquí les dejo el official trailer de Breaking Dawn Part I

Advice ♥

When you think of your past love, you may view it as a failure. But when you find a new love, you view the past as a teacher. In the game of love, it doesn’t really matter who won or who lost. What is important is you know when to hold on and when to let go! You know you really love someone when you want him or her to be happy, even if his or her happiness means that you’re not part of it. Everything happens for the best. If the person you love doesn’t love you back, don’t be afraid to love someone else again, for you’ll never know unless you give it a try. You’ll never love a person you love unless you risk for love.

Love strives in hurting. If you don’t get hurt, you don’t learn how to love. Love doesn’t hurt all the time, though the hurting is still there to test you and to help you grow. Don’t find love, let love find you. That’s why it’s called falling in love because you don’t force yourself to fall. You just fall. You cannot finish a book without closing its chapters. If you want to go on, then you have to leave the past as you turn the pages. Love is not destroyed by a single failure or won by a single caress. It is a lifetime venture in which we are always learning, discovering and growing.

The greatest irony of love is letting go when you need to hold on and holding on when you need to let go. We lose someone we love only when we are destined to find someone else who can love us even more than we can love ourselves. On falling out of love, take some time to heal and then get back on the horse. But don’t ever make the same mistake of riding the same one that threw you the first time. To love is to risk rejections; to live is to risk dying, to hope is to risk failure. But risk must be taken because the greatest hazard in life is risking nothing! To reach for another is to risk involvement, to expose your feelings is to expose true self; to love is to risk not to be loved in return.

How to define love: fall but do not stumble, be constant but not too persistent, share and never be unfair, understand and try not to demand, hurt but never keep the pain. Love is like a knife. It can stab the heart or it can carve wonderful images into the soul that always last for a lifetime. Love is supposed to be the most wonderful feeling. It should inspire you and give you joy and strength. But sometimes the things that give you joy can also hurt you in the end. Loving people means giving them the freedom that they choose to be and where they choose to be.

For all the heartaches and the tears, for gloomy days and fruitless years, you should give thanks, for you know, that these were the things which helped you grow. Loving someone means giving him the freedom to find his way, whether it leads towards you or away from you. Love is a painful risk to take but the risk must be taken no matter how scary or painful, for only then you’ll experience the fullness of humanity and that is love. Only love can hurt your heart, fill you with desire and tear you apart. Only love can make you cry and only love knows why. If you’re not ready to cry, if you’re not ready to take the risk, if you’re not ready to feel the pain, then you’re not ready to fall in love.

There was a time in our lives when we became afraid to fall in love because every time we do, we get hurt, then I figured that’s why it’s called falling in love. When you decide to love, allow it to grow. When you promise to love, refuse to let it die! Wait for the guy who pursues you, the one who will make an ordinary moment seem magical the kind of guy who will bring out the best in you, and make you want to be a better person. Wait for the guy who will be your best friend, the only person who will drop everything to be with you at any time, no matter what the circumstances are. Wait for the guy who makes you smile like no one else and when he smiles you’ll know he needs you.

Wait for the guy who wants to show you off to the world when your in sweats and have no makeup on, but appreciates it when you get dolled up for him. But most of all, wait for the guy who will put you at the center of his universe, because that is where you belong.. “He may not be the most attractive, he may not say all the right words, but when you see him, you know he’s the one that can make you smile, laugh, and cry all at the same time.. “Beginnings are usually scary, endings are usually sad, but the middle is what really counts! God gave you two eyes, two ears, two arms, two legs, two feet, two hands but one heart..cuz he gave the other one to someone else. It’s your job to find it!

Pintura vrs. Photoshop

Proyecto: 
Elegir una pintura del Arte Barroco y  rehacerla, sin embargo ahora a base de fotografía.

Pintura seleccionada:
Jupiter y Callisto – Peter Paul Rubens

Fotografía realizada:
Karen González y Gloria Hernández

Pero aquí viene lo más interesante.. La tecnología ha cambiado de tal manera en que ahora podemos hacer que una fotografía parezca de cierto modo una pintura. Esto se realiza gracias a Adobe Photoshop… ya sea con filtros o con brochas.  Será que todos aquellos pintores, grandes artistas, dejarán de existir debido a esta tecnología? Será que olvidaremos a los grandes del arte y comenzaremos a poner cuadros realizados en Adobe Photoshop en nuestras casas? Estaremos listos para este cambio? Yo pienso que lastimosamente sí. Ahora gracias a la tecnología se pueden hacer millones de cosas… si ya perdimos la credibilidad en las fotos de las modelos (pues ya sabemos que antes de ser publicadas pasan por Photoshop), podemos fácilmente perder la credibilidad en los cuadros.. So sad.

Friends becoming strangers…

Primero lo primero..
Qué es un amigo? Según entiendo, un amigo es aquella persona que parece ser de tu familia aunque no lo es. Es aquel hermano que quizas nunca tuviste, aquella persona que está contigo en cualquier momento. Un amigo celebra tus triunfos, llora contigo, te dice la verdad aunque te ponga triste porque no quiere decirte una mentira que te pueda hacer feliz.

Ser amigos no quiere decir que hay que verse todos los días, siempre necesitamos un poco de espacio. El problema aquí es cuando toman demasiado enserio el “no verse” que lleva a “no hablarse”, “no dar señales de vida”, “olvidarse”, “no darle importancia a lo que mis amigos hacen”. Hay un cierto punto donde dejan todo de lado y se olvidan de sus amigos… ese error sólo lleva a que los amigos se conviertan en completos extraños.

O qué pasa cuando ese “amigo” no está de acuerdo en la persona que sos? Hmmm.. no es tu amigo. Nadie tiene derecho a juzgarte, y un amigo te va a querer con tus defectos y tus virtudes, con tus compañeros raros o tus novios insoportables, te va a querer sin importar quien sos, en quien crees y con quien estás.

En la vida, vamos a conocer a muchísimas personas, algunas buenas y otras malas. Con el tiempo te das cuenta que son pocas las personas que se merecieron el título de “amigo”, ya que las otras sólo son personas que entraron a tu vida, dejaron recuerdos y te abandonaron.

It’s great when stangers become friends
But even sadder when those friends become strangers
We became friends and didn’t even realize it
I trusted you and you trusted me
Now were like stangers to each other
But no matter what you’ll always be my friend
Even if im not yours
It’s great when strangers become friends
But even sadder when those friends become strangers

 

LOVE

“Love is a temporary madness; it erupts like volcanoes and then subsides. And when it subsides you have to make a decision. You have to work out whether your roots have so entwined together that it is inconceivable that you should ever part. Because this is what love is. Love is not breathlessness, it is not excitement, it is not the promulgation of eternal passion. That is just being in love, which any fool can do. Love itself is what is left over when being in love has burned away, and this is both an art and a fortunate accident. Those that truly love have roots that grow towards each other underground, and when all the pretty blossoms have fallen from their branches, they find that they are one tree and not two.”

~Louis de Bernieres

FC Barcelona, Campeones! Ole, ole, ole!

No hay nada más bonito que ver a tu equipo ganar. Así lo ha sido durante esta temporada, el FC Barcelona me dio muchos momentos de alegría con su buen fútbol. Este post no es para pelear, sólo para decir lo que pienso. Digan lo que digan, le duela a quien le duela, el FC Barcelona es el mejor equipo actualmente. No dejo de lado el gran fútbol del Real Madrid, pero sinceramente fuimos superiores en varias ocasiones.

Después de ese abril de clásicos, de esos momentos de taquicardia, calentura, nervios, puedo decir que nos llevamos a casa La Liga (por tercera vez consecutiva) y me alegra mucho. Si, puede ser que perdimos la Copa del Rey, pero eliminar al Madrid de la Champions League y todavía tener la oportunidad de ganarla, para mí no tiene precio.

No espero escribir mucho acerca de mi equipo, pues todos lo conocemos y más de alguna vez lo hemos visto jugar. Solamente quería compartir esta victoria (ya que hay ciertas personas que se hacen los que son ciegos y no ven lo que está pasando).

P.S: Si se preguntan por qué una foto de Puyol… Apesar de ser el capitán de este equipo, y ser el #5 (es mi número favorito), Puyol es uno de los pocos jugadores que he visto que deja la VIDA por su equipo en la cancha, eso lo convierte en un GRANDÍSIMO defensa y jugador. Como fiel amante del fútbol “cuando sea grande quiero ser como él”

Visca Barça!

My mom ♥

Mom, you’re a wonderful mother,
So gentle, yet so strong.
The many ways you show you care
Always make me feel I belong.

You’re patient when I’m foolish;
You give guidance when I ask;
It seems you can do most anything;
You’re the master of every task.

You’re a dependable source of comfort;
You’re my cushion when I fall.
You help in times of trouble;
You support me whenever I call.

I love you more than you know;
You have my total respect.
If I had my choice of mothers,
You’d be the one I’d select!
