The Quote

“I do not know, but happiness is within my grasp and I cannot help myself”

One of the greatest sentences that Jane Austen said on Becoming Jane. Gosh, I feel exactly like her.

[and it feels sooo great that I can’t almost find the words to explain]

I mean, I could actually write about it, but it would absolutely be novel-like, and it would take me a lot of time to write it.

By the way, one great event I’ve experienced last week made me want to start another period novel – just to include it in a masterpiece and write even more about it.

[yes, because I’ve already wrote pages about a few seconds, and I can’t get it out of my mind. Oh, and of course, that moment was exactly what led me to remember the quote, and want to pursue and achieve my happiness, instead of simply remaining quiet, waiting for its arrival]


Decisions, Decisions

I shouldn’t be here, writing. Instead, I should be drawing.
Still, I don’t feel like doing none of them, and I know that if I allow myself to write more than just a few lines, I’ll just spend another day without drawing.

Let’s just face the facts while we can: I can’t be here. I have to draw and I’m 100% sure that if I don’t do it, I’ll feel a tremendous amount of guilt tomorrow. I know it.

Still, why is it so hard to choose?!

I guess I’ll just have to do as if I were still a kid: sweetheart, if you draw, you’ll be allowed to write, ok?! I’m only afraid it won’t work, since I’m feeling sleepy.

Amy, get ready. You’re in the guilt course, and it will hit you as soon as you wake up, tomorrow. The countdown starts now.
