This is a picture of me that one of my friends Natalie did. Crazy right? Like it?

Somebody once told me to smile no matter what is happening. That is easy to say but hard to do. So when I am not feeling like smiling I just go to my own happy place and try to forget about the bad things happening in the real world. That works for me. I haven't been getting to much sleep lately so I have no other choice really. Just try to stay positive! This is my new tattoo (for 2 weeks) and I'm sticking to its purpose.

We just have the IT class and we are learning how to create a website. I am so grateful to do this whole thing at because the normal way is so boring and complicated. I want to go home.

This night was really scary. I woke up at 3am in the morning with a huge need to get something to drink plus my stomach hurt so I wanted to take a pill. So I went to our living room when out of the blue everything was blurry and I collapsed on the floor. It was like a nightmare. Few minutes later I managed to went back to bed, get the pill from my bag and I fell asleep immediately. A woke up one hour later totally freaked out and I had to quickly pack my things and go to school. So crazy!

I am writing a biology test next period so wish me luck.
Anyone also looking forward to watching yestarday's Gossip Girl episode? Love it!

BTW I just finished watching the movie Blue Valentine and it is absolutely perfect - romantic, dramatic, surprising and when you get to the end you want it to never end. I think that is the beauty of the television series - they have so many parts.
So if you will have time, check it out.

With the morning sun, I am still in bed, trying to get up, but I am to tired. On Saturday I ran 10 km and then went for a walk with my friend. She needed to buy new flowers, which was really exciting plus they had an amazing frappe in the restaurant inside. Probably the best one I ever had. Trying to carry those two big flowers wasn't that easy, but it was worth it.
And yesterday the school was okay. Afterwards Laura and me, we finally bought the talented Mac Miller tickets and gone shopping for new shorts (in which we succeeded). Then at 6 o'clock I was back at school again playing the Midsummer Night's Dream theatre as a bad little fairy called Puck, that was a great fun.
So that is it, the reasons why I desperately need summer and vacation, especially on the beach.
Hope you had a great weekend too,
xoxo, Elena

Be Optimistic - Chapter 1

I often question myself, who am I? Who is Elena? Most of the times the answer is, crazy little dork, but who the hell knows? That is how I see it. And right know it probably seems like I have many questions unanswered, but I am fine. It is not unusual to be confused and a little bit to shy at 15, isn't it? At least I hope it is not. I don't care what everybody thinks of me anyway. OK, so that is a lie, let's face it. It would be great to not care, to be free and spontaneous, but I do not know how to do that. How many opportunities have I missed and bad choices have I made just because of being shy, stubborn and shallow. It still happens, my friends text me to go out or do something interesting, but am always to sick or to tired. I mean it is true, I really am tired from my part-time job or from school all the time, but not every time it can be an excuse.
