Every Easter since I had a daughter that now is 3 years old and believes in the Easter bunny and Santa i do make an effort. So I made the little bag with felt, ribbons and fabric glue. Some buttons too.

Sometimes I wish I had a time travel machine you know? So I could fly and meet all this extraordinary people… Maybe they were only able to inspire us until today because their lives had a purpose or they were really ambitious to achieve a something. Do you have a purpose? Do you want to achieve something ? Why? What are your motivations? Questions
Being an only child you get used to moments of complete introspection and sometimes complete loneliness plus that combined with my total lack of abilities to any sort of sports led me to make an extreme effort on the social behaviour bordering my instincts to become tainted for I remember feeling so different in my tastes, I remember trying really hard to pretend to be normal and slightly dumb because I needed to fit in and maybe I tried so hard I lost my weirdness that made me so UNIQUE , that was the source of all my light. I loved reading good and intelligent books for days, watching cult movies and the reality is that … -OH GOD ALMIGHTY- it dawned on me again another epiphany and I was shocked with realizing that all those Science fiction books and movies based on a different reality usually set on the future were reality. We are ZOMBIES completely brainwashed to follow the fashion, work to spend our money in Shit We do not need and not question anything. It must be difficult to maintain order of wild free thinking beasts like us mortal defective Human beings. So the plan for the order is We all look the same, weight the same, better if We do it on a sub nutrition kind of way for We are destroying trees and you know? Ecosystem and all that so the resources once abundant were now not enough. We don’t read good books anymore, they are available for purchase but only very few still read them, people like to take those distasteful tablets that lack the beauty and comforting company a book gives because of course the tablets a smaller and easy to carry around but I thought the good thing was to spend time inside that amazing world that is a book. There is magic in the pages of a well worn book and without it the word book doesn’t exist anymore. So We don’t read books not because they are not available anymore but because our life style became as fast as the speed of our broadband connection- Who needs to study these days or call an specialist when you can do it all by yourself and learn it at two in the morning if desired so? With one advantage, saving money. We are addicted, junkies of technology and virtual realities, I don’t need to be nice to any person, I have my friends from facebook that I don’t see for how long? 15 or 25 years and then I finally wake up and scold myself again for I AM LATE AGAIN- need to go to my “semi- alive” reality.
I’ve been busy, my new addiction in the last month is Freebie websites because I got converted by all the savvy moms that I encountered on my last compulsion for pinterest. So my thought was that if I got loads of followers on pinterest and wrote a blog about my amazing organization skills I will be famous and build a website and sell all the things I bought when I decided that selling on e bay was a great idea ( subject for another post I suppose). I will then be a millionaire like Martha Stewart but without the tax evasion slip mind you. I’ve got to say that I followed all the great ideas of the blogs I encountered surfing on pinterest and to my surprise I ended up spending at least 50 hours of my life answering surveys and for that I got an immense quantity of spams and phone calls about PPI and so on plus loads of free samples and junk mail (Free samples good) but at some point you are doing something important that requires attention and your phone rings and rings and it’s all about swags and unwanted services. I even got to the point of creating a whole new persona on facebook just to get free gifts and samples. I’ve got to be brutally honest here and tell you that I have a dressing room packet with clothes, shoes and beauty products, diy, crafting, etc… So I don’t really need more but trying to get free stuff can be like a game and I am very competitive so I played the game. My husband was freaked out when I told him about the new persona on facebook because let’s face it: IT IS CREEPY!!!!
I know it’s insane when I’m doing it but what is the fun in life if you don’t try it when you feel like trying it? What is the fun in pretending to be so grown up all the time? Where is the rabbit hole ? Why do I do such things? I believe that I need to see things through different perspectives and dive in the cold water to wake my senses. We all want to experience things our selves and even if someone tells you about how such a bad idea it is We do it anyway because it might be a good idea for me and bad for others. If I do not do it, I might be missing out, right?
Have a happy easter!
