I apologize....

When I started this blog I thought it will be easy and I was going to update once a week at least. How wrong was I.

Its never easy putting in paper your feelings and fears. Even though I know that I only write for myself and that not many read this blog it is still intimidating.

When an inspiration hits me and I want to share it I never know how to start and then I just drift into dreamland and imagine that I have a blog like Carrie Bradshaw, where I write all my adventures and then it becomes a movie or a TV series- I don't really mind which.

But you see my life isn't that fabulous, I wouldn't say interesting because for me it is. My problem is no one else will care and maybe I am being paranoid, why should you care, but it will be nice to think that someone, anyone reads what I write and relates and cares.

Having said all that or better having written all that, how cliche, I would like to state that from now on I'll try to update once a month at least. I'll give you an inside of my life and I am doing. Like for example I am getting ready to go to the U.S. of A and I am very excited. I've been there before having family and all but I love travelling and I'll probably be visiting Canada as well so I can't wait.

I'll be writing to you.....

Silence is gold......

You know what.....I hate people that give unnecessary advise...If I wanted your advise I would have asked....Sometimes silence is a gift....You don't need to fill it every single time of the day.....Use silence to think about your own faults and mistakes, don't criticise others....As MJ once said "Start with the man in the mirror" and if you can't find anything wrong then look again. You probably didn't take a close look.
When I feel the urge to give advise, I bite my tong. People don't always welcome it....If asked I try not to hurt any feelings but I only use the truth...I learnt that white lies don't necessarily make someone happier. Yes, if you tell the truth they will hurt but they will also learn. But don't manipulate that truth in your advantage...you give advise in order to make someone better, not to satisfy your own egotistical needs. Dip your tong in your brain before you use it...words hurt more than actions....If you hit someone the results are clear and they will heal, but if your words hurt you will probably never be aware of the pain you've caused...and believe me that pain takes time to heal.
What I also find somewhat wierd is the confidence of some that state that are great at giving advise. Really people? Really?
Giving advise is like driving a car....You will never be great at it...even if you are a Formula 1 driver. They do get things wrong!
So before you speak, think!
 
Shhhhh......

01/01/2012

First I would like to wish to every single one of you a Happy New Year!!May 2012 bring you happiness and health!But most of all may it brings you HOPE for life and the future!

I hope you have the strength and will to achieve what you've wished for. Don't worry if you haven't written any New Years resolutions.....too many promises on paper that most of the time we cannot keep. 

Just make it simple. 

Promise to love, to dream, to achieve and to be happy.
And promise to yourself that no matter how hard thinks will get and if they get hard, you will shed one tear and then you will hold your head high and march. Maybe you'll have to march to the unknown but that's the beauty of life. 


Stop lingering in the Past. Embrace your Present. And welcome the Future.

Whether it will be good or not, is yours to live. So live it to the fullest.

Let your dreams take over you and make sure you believe in them. At some point, whether "now"or "later" they will come true.

Love, live, laugh....Laugh with everything but most of all laugh with yourself.

Make sure to believe in you.

Peace.....

Rage......

I feel rage, I feel rage towards those who have been tearing this country, my country, apart. I feel rage towards those who so many years where sitting and enjoying their life, enjoying anything that the government offered them and they didn't feel the need to object or shout. Now they do, now they're shouting and cursing those who put them in an already overwhelmed public sector, just because now they need to step down. They shout because they cannot enjoy the otherwise illegal unemployment benefits.......Of course you shout and protest, of course the country is in deficit. Yes the governments that have been in charge the past years stole from you and from me. But you also steal, you stole from those that really needed the money, you were satisfied by the fact that you were employed in an organization that did not have a use for you. And when it did you weren't there to help and actually do what you were getting paid, from my money-from our money, to do.
So, now you protest and you curse and you wish you weren't such a jackass and had actually reacted earlier. 
I blame YOU. For letting it go to far, for not protesting earlier; like you're protesting now, for taking advantage of what THEY were doing for your own gain.
But mostly I blame ME. For putting my trust to YOU, for not letting you have a piece of my mind, for not shouting louder, for letting you do the same mistakes over and over and over again.

So, all the blame goes to me and to those that never voted for those that are and were in the government.

Forgive me for raging.....but it was overdue!

Breaking Down.....

This past two days have been critical for Greece and for the people here. The five-year austerity plan was voted by the parliament and difficult times are coming....So if you are a tourist please visit us, we need your dollars or your Yen or Yuan or even some of your Euros....
I will not claim I know everything there is to know about this plan. I have never been politically active-don't get me wrong I vote, I try that is..always choose the Environmentally friendly party- but I have never found a political party that can express my beliefs without trying to sell me bull* just so they can get a vote, so I will not try to be active in that part know. I find it wrong from my part and a joke. BUT, I have always been with the people, with those who have been struggling, not only know but the past 10 years. I have never liked the term politician because in my mind is synonim to liar, exploiter, cheat. And I am not just talking about Greek politicians, I am talking about every politician who has tried to take advantage of situations and get richer or avoid laws etc.
And yes I know, I shouldn't judge everyone and put them under the same spot but you see they've been doing exactly that to the people that have been protesting peacefully in downtown Athens. Just because some are stupid enough and they only want to destroy anothers property that doesn't mean that they should all be treated as animals and get beaten by the police force. Although, I know what I am about to say most of you will not like, but these police men that are facing all this protests are just scared and fed up. That's what I see at least. I DO NOT SUPPORT what they are doing. But some not all are just babies, others are just crazy and enjoy their power and most are just trying to get through like everyone else.
If we could just unite as people, as a country and face those who are trully to blame.....

I would like to apologize to those that I have offended...but like a friend told once we still have the right of free speech...so as long someones deprives of this freedom I will continue writing what I feel and think...

P.S: Sorry for any mistakes in my writing. :-)

Two Weeks of Craziness.....

The past two weeks have been crazy...I started working as an assistant at an office in my school and the first thing that I had to do is escort a group of Greek-Americans in different excursions. Not to bad I may add.....I enjoyed every single minute of their stay and I  now miss them to much....I am actually planning on visiting some of them, if not all, at some point this winter. That is if I have any money left and if I can get out of work (I don't even know if I'll still be employed by then :-/ ). So, I spent two great weeks exploring Greece and re-visiting forgotten ancient ruins....I can never get enough of Sounio and the Temple of Poseidon or the amazing feeling that Olympia gives me everytime I visit....These students were curious and thrilled to get to know Greece and the history surrounding this country....although I think they would have also enjoyed a little bit more of Modern Greece (that is nightlife,not history..).
At the end of these two weeks I received an award on Leadership (I was so not expecting that) and I graduated....wooooohoooooooohohohoohho......
What is left for me to do....not much just get accepted in the school that I want for an MFA in Production...Good luck to me....No, seriously GOOD LUCK :-[...

Before I leave you to go for lunch...(chicken with mashed potatoes..a favorite...) I want to dedicate this post to all Heritage Greece 2011 American participants....
Alex O., Alex F., Alexandra, Bryant, Liz, Andrea, Theo, James, Demitri, Austin, Christina, Renee, Kathryn, Chris M., Chris A., Dean, Rachel, Paul, Nicole, Robyn....I miss you all...See you soon..
