Hope

Dear Readers,
I wanted to share some thoughts with you.This morning I was waiting for the train to meet a friend. And as I was waiting, something crossed my mind. I felt hopeful. And when I thought about it, it made sense. I always feel so hopeful when I’m waiting for the train. Because it feels like that train is going to take me somewhere else. Which it obviously does. But I don’t mean it that way. I mean, like it’s taking me to where I want to be, to who I want to be. Of course it will not take me to who I want to be. But the hope it will, helps to go on. It helps to wake up every morning and go to school or work and live. It helps to stand up after you fall. It helps to keep going, even when you feel that you can’t take it anymore. The hope that it will be better one day. That you’ll be able to take yourself as you are. It helps you to be patient. There’s a saying: Hope dies last. I think it’s true. Because if you lose hope you’re lost. There’s nothing to hold on to anymore. That’s what I’m thinking anyways. I hope this post didn’t bore you half to death.
Have a nice day, night or whatever time it is at yours.
Keep on going, yours truly
Gioia

Happy First Blog-anniversary !

Hey Guys,

This was how I started my first blog post. And I really didn’t know anything about blogging back then. I’ve got to admit I still don’t know everything about blogging but I’d say I’ve improved. This was how it first started. I had read one of my favorite books once again in which the main character is a blogger. She’s got a blog about, big question, books! So, one morning I thought ( actually a year ago), why don’t make a blog? Why not just try it? As you all know, I did. I had now idea how to write good reviews, and I don’t want to be arrogant here, but I think I’m much better than in the start. A lot of things changed. Life changed, High School started, interests changed and I have changed myself. But that’s good. Because this is why life’s interesting. Because there are changes. I didn’t think that many people would like my blog. There are so many other book bloggers that are so much better than me. But that’s not what it’s about, right? It’s about that each blog, person or being is unique and great in it’s own way. I wouldn’t have dreamed about having 100 followers. People that were actually reading what I thought and liking it. And I am so thankful to all of you. You helped me through very shitty times, and you were happy with me in the good times. I’ve learned so much with you. And about life. I’ve found friends  on here that will possibly last a lifetime. Especially one friend that I gladly count as one of my best friends, even though I’ve never seen her, never talked to her for real, she knows some things about me that not even my closest friends know. Or they do know about it but not that deeply. I’m really looking up to her. She’s so strong. And I feel like she really gets me. In a way I don’t even get myself. Go check out her blog if you haven’t already she’s great. It’s Aspen and if you read this, Aspen, know that I am glad to know you. I can’t believe how fast a year can go by. How many things can change in 12 months. It seems like a long time for the waiting, for those who look back it’s gone too fast. That’s how it works. It’s been a year that I have started this blog and I am so happy about it. Thank you all. THANK YOU!!!

Today I celebrated with my friends. And as you can see, there was even cake. It was a small celebration but it meant much to me. As I can’t celebrate with you in person I will do it in a Q&A post. Don’t worry, it will be there soon. But to do a Q&A there have to be questions, you can ask whatever you want to know except too personal stuff like address, Name, family. Well you can ask them, I just won’t answer them. As a present for you, you can write me any suggestions you’d like to hear as well as book reviews you’d like to hear. I hope you are all great and that life’s going well for you. I hope you all love yourselves. I want you to know that you deserve to be happy, because everybody of you does. I’ve always believed in the good of people, when I was little I used to think that nobody was born bad so they had to have something good in themselves. I still believe it, most of the time. But there’s bad people too, people that hurt you, people that are happy when they see you crying. Everybody has to learn that. In one way or another. But please don’t give up on believing in the good,even if it’s hard sometimes. Don’t give up on people and don’t give up on yourselves. I want you to be happy about the small things and cry if something makes you sad. Never be ashamed of crying. Crying shows that you are strong. Because crying shows you don’t lie to others or yourself when you feel shitty. You simply are yourself. And last but not least Be yourselves. If people don’t like the real you they don’t matter and the ones that like the real you won’t mind flaws.Because after all, we’re all humans.

I am glad to have you all and to have kept this blog. Have a nice day, night or whatever time it is.

Bye
