Last Saturday I was home alone. Therefore, I thought this post would be named ‘Home Alone’, and contain funny sketches of me preparing dinner while watching tv, realising I forgot to add butter to prevent my little pizza’s from burning – which they of course did – and eventually doing the dishes and not being able to clean my mom’s pan from the scorched pizza remnants… I could not do any more harm to my parents` property, as I went out with a friend.
But imagine being home alone, both your parents and your brother out: what would you do? Except for having dinner (uhm, preparing pizza…) I sang my lungs out. And I did not care whether I sang off-pitch: no one could hear me (well, I hope the neighbours are a little dull of hearing)
This I did in order to hold on to the vibe, as I’m gonna call my urge to do artistic, creative things like composing music, drawing, designing, writing stories and poems and, now I finally got myself a microphone, singing and recording myself. The result(s), produced, mixed and directed by no one else but me, will soon appear on my MySpace… Please be gentle, I’m not a professional singer, hehe, nor a pro in anything.
I would like to address myself as ‘the queen of metaphores’, though my Dutch metaphores are still more sophisticated than my English ones. Weren’t it I have only written in English regurly for about less than 1 year, since I started this blog (see my first post).
So much has changed. I now finally begin to get a firm grip on my life, though there are many exceptions, slipping through my fingers or simply escaping my grip. My beloved little darlings` story is not making much progress to become a widely spread and frequently read novel. So I decided to translate Chapter 2 into English. Just remember I’m not a pro-skilled translater.
Hold on to the vibe, I’d say to everyone. What makes you happy should be there everyday of your beautiful life, even though your homework piles tower you by far and your banc account begs you for a little more money. Perhaps you could make money with one of your vibrant talents…
