Book Review: “The Fault In Our Stars” by John Green

Forget about 50 shade of grey ,dark,black,pink or purple!!!

it’s the BEST BOOK I have ever read!! Very highly recommended!! Motion sickness be damned 😦 John Green broke my heart into tiny little pieces. If I were Superman, this little book would be my Kryptonite.

The Fault In Our Stars introduces Green’s first female protagonist, Hazel Grace Lancaster, who was diagnosed with a Stage IV thyroid cancer at the age of 12. By a medical miracle, she is now 16, but remains terminal knowing that one day, the cancer will come back to claim her. During a cancer support group meeting, she meets the enigmatic Augustus Waters, a cancer survivor who is instantly drawn to her. Cautious but also curious, she starts spending time with Augustus, inadvertently changing her life as she knows it. Conventional stories of cancer victims focus on their inspiring hope, faith, and strength. Forget that. At the end of the day, most of us would not be radiating sunshine if we were afflicted by the big “C.” Anyone who has seen a loved one go through the pains of cancer or any other terminal illness can attest to the horrible impact that it has on patients. John Green recognizes this and allows his characters to express the truth about mortality. His honesty in how patients feel on the day-to-day basis and the roller coaster of emotions they go through is authentic and leaves the reader with the very essence of what it is like to deal with the horrors of cancer. This was the first time I have had the pleasure of
reading John Green’s work and I am in love with his writing. He creates the most amazing, multi- dimensional characters that shatter the boundaries of a simple paper page. He is this incredibly intelligent man who writes incredibly intelligent things that makes you really think and wonder. And he has the ability to break hearts and mend them back together, in the most crooked way possible. As an aspiring writer, there were countless times I read a line and just thought, “Damn. I wish I had written that.” There were lines that made me laugh out loud. There were lines that I had to highlight and reread. There were lines that captured the feelings that I have but that I could never put into words. “My thoughts are like stars that I cannot fathom into constellations.” Dear God, how did this man get in my head? You should know that this book will make you cry. A lot!!!  This book made my heart ache and my eyes burn with tears. There was just so much emotion in the pages of this book that it was so hard not to feel them. But it is so very worth it.
It’s a beautifully honest story about death, but more importantly about life. It will stay with you long after you read it.
Have you read this book? What did you think of it?

Dress for Success: Looking Great in College

0

Whenever I enter a classroom on my college’s campus, the one thing I always notice is how people are dressed. Whether they’re wearing a cute scarf or have on a nice pair of boots, people with impeccable fashion sense always seem to stand out. The other people, who also seem to stand out (but not in a good way) are those who roll out of bed and find their way to the classroom. You know the type — wearing sweatpants, Ugg Boots, a sweatshirt, and a messy sloppy bun. While it’s understandable that it’s college and that dressing like you’re going to a business lunch isn’t exactly a priority, dressing like a complete and utter slob is another story. You can always find comfort in fashion with these easy steps on how to dress up your look. Looking nice for class does not mean waking up 30 minutes before your class begins, and leaving your dorm looking like you’re about to walk the catwalk for a fashion show. All it takes is putting
together a simple look with a few key pieces that you can probably find in your wardrobe. Some of these key pieces that can help you can look pulled together include cute graphics tees, flat boots, scarves, and leather jackets.

A cute graphic tee from Forever 21

Graphic tees, which can be found on websites or in stores like Forever 21, can jazz up a pair of jeans or even leggings. Wearing a graphic tee that
has a cute saying on it or an image of an iconic celebrity gives your outfit personality and is the focal point of the look. An example of a cute look including a graphic tee could be leggings, a pair of Converse sneakers and an open plaid shirt.

Another affordable option from Forever 21

Another option that can spice up your wardrobe for college is a leather jacket. They come in various colors, such as burgundy if you want to be adventurous or black if you want a classic style. They are just as comfortable as sweatshirts, but give your outfit a more polished look. A great place to find leather jackets for affordable prices is Charlotte Russe.

a leather jacket is a basic staple in every wardrobe and can be worn with pretty much anything. Boots and scarf worn together? One trendy look!
The last two items that can dress up any basic outfit are flat boots and scarves. Flat boots look good with leggings or jeans, and can even look nice with a dress and tights if you want to spice up your style. Scarves can also look great with various different outfits .  Printed scarves can
easily give a plain outfit edge and they come in fun prints such as leopard or tribal patterns.
While most people may feel tempted to attend class in the clothes they wore to bed the night before, dressing up not only gives you a boost of
confidence, but slowly prepares you for the real world. While wearing a graphic tee won’t be suitable for a job, it’s slowly getting you out of the routine that consists of sweats and Uggs. Also, looking nice will get you noticed by other students who may be inspired by what you wear.
Dressing for success may seem like a pain now, but once you start looking goo, you’ll never want to go back.

today was a very bad day for me. I lost my ‘night’ my cat .. why I call him night? because he’s black hairy and very misterious.

yesterday morning my mom told me that the night did not come home all night. but I think he will come home. but until today he did not come home .

image

it makes me very sad. I think someone has stolen the night. not possible night run away  right? I suspect if my neighbor stole it, because he really liked the night. but after I check and I’m looking for where to where? noting! he really lost ..
