This year's Wimbledon was awesome for so many reasons.

Roger Federer won his 15th Grand Slam, Novak didn't have an early exit as almost everybody thought, Ivo Karlovic did a weird dance, Andy Roddick reached another Grand Slam final and played like old times, Jamie Murray reached the mixed doubles semifinals, Andy Murray didn't win, Stan won me over, Nando broke up with the gel, Soderling lost to Roger for the eleventh time, and list goes on. That's why I wanted to do a picspam with a little bit of all, and I ended up with more than 100 pics and a sore wrist but it was definitely worth it.

Leave me a comment with "SRS BZNS - WHERE'S MY MARGARITA" in the subject line.

 I'll respond by asking you five questions so I can get to know you better.
 Update your journal with the answers to the questions. 
Include this explanation in the post and offer to ask other people questions.

roonzil gave me these ones :D



1. Would you like to live in a different time? And why?

I've always loved the Victorian Era. Classy times, polite people, great architecture and impressive art manifestations. Jane Austen's literature was pre-victorian, even so her books gave me a great idea of that lifestyle and I fell more and more in love with it.

But I wouldn't change this time for nothing. I'm grateful for what I have and for the amazing people I've met. Life may not be perfect but that doesn't make it less beautiful 'cause those ups and downs are the reason why we are able to give it a meaning. So even though this time may not be as beautiful as the past, it's mine to live :D



2. Who do you admire most?

I'd say whoever who is coherent with their life and ideas. It's so hard to live as you preach 'cause will is the weakest link.

But talking about specific people, I guess I wouldn't be able to pick just one. I can give a lot of names and whys:

-Wilkie Collins, for his over the top ability to write.
-Gabriel García Márquez, for making a way to latinamerican writers.
-Andrea Bocelli, for having such a beautiful voice and sharing it with the world.
-Tim Burton, for being so creative and talented.
-Novak Djokovic, for being able to deal with a difficult background and his parent's pressure.
-Olivia Wilde, for having a cause and wanting to be more than a pretty face.
-Former president Roosvelt, for successfully dealing with people's expectations in the 'New Deal'

List goes on but gets boring.



3. What's your favorite hobby?

Reading, although is so hard to find the time to do it.
Other things I enjoy doing are: graphic design (but I'm so bad at it), playing tennis, watching tv, singing, drawing (but no coloring, I hate that), writing, veggin' out and talking on the phone for hours :D



4. If you could speak any language, just like that, which one would it be?

Serbian, to stalk Novak :D
French, I love it. I love languages in general, so I just want to learn as many as I can. It will help my career too, I guess that every good economist should now how to speak/write in more than two languages right?



5. Do you like to read and if yes, which genre do you like most?

I love reading, it takes you to a different world. A great way to cope with stress and to take your mind out of some problems if you have any.

As sad as it sounds, I've never been in love 'cause I have really high standards for men. So if I find out that someone is 'interested' (this sounds so bad...) I run away, in two seconds. This is the main reason why I love romantic books.

When you read about something you don't know you can have your own idea of it, I like this. Seriously, being in love is like a 24/7 job 'cause men can be so sensitive... and I don't have time to babysit anyone.

That being said, my favorite books are:

-Love in the Time of Cholera (Gabriel García Márquez)
-Woman in White (Wilkie Collins)
-The Moonstone (Wilkie Collins)
-Pride and Prejudice (Jane Austen)
-Wuthering Heights (Emily Bronte)


next time I'll use a cut, I promise D:

Hiatus is over.

I finished with all my finals and I did fine, although not as I expected of course 'cause I'm a perfectionist but I'll try to improve next month.

Do you know what else is over? Wimbledon. Roger won and I'm glad but I was rooting for Andy Roddick, why? because he deserved it. Everyone said that without Rafa this was going to be so damn easy for Roger and it wasn't, he had to suffer for over 4 hours and Roddick could have won the title by winning the second set, where he lost 4 set points. I know tomorrow morning local newspapers will say "this was meant to happen", but I already decided I'm not wasting my time reading those 'cause they only use tennis to fill the void in sport's page.

I'm still not in the best mood 'cause I'm sick, I have a sore throat 'cause I went out on Thursday night to celebrate the end of university's cycle. Obviously, I'm not the only one 'cause some of my friends are sick too but you have no idea how hard it is to study economics at my university; they keep on making things harder, and as one teacher used to say: "study hard and party as hard as you studied" so we're just doing what we've been told.

Anyway, maybe you are wondering what's up with this ugly thing down here. I am bad when it comes to photoshop (like BAD in capital letters) but it's something I enjoy doing so I'm sorry for hurting some eyes and of course, for ruining Novak's picture . I'll do the picspam as soon as I'm done selecting images . I WANT A MUZZA FREE WIMBLEDON PICSPAM, or at least one where he's all sad and emo over his loss so that's not an easy job with all the nightmare material pictures over the net.

I'll edit later, as soon as I'm done.

Hi there ~lovely loves~

I am pleased to announce I'm going into semi-hiatus for a week or two!
And why am I happy? Because I'll try my best to keep this journal alive so I'm changing stuff and making icons/graphics/banners/whatever. Once I'm done, I'll be here again.

Feel free to say, suggest or ask anything while I'm out :)
