“All you ever really had was yourself,and that sort of sucked if you were less than reliable.”-Amelia

Charlotte O’Keefe has got a 5 years old daughter called Amelia when she met Sean O’Keefe.After a meeting that Charlotte’s bestfriend Piper Reece arranged,they started dating and got married soon.They have been trying to conceive for nearly a year and began seeing Piper Reece who is also an obstrician for months before they finally naturally conceived.Charlotte gave birth to a baby girl called Willow who suffered OI aka Osteogenesis Imperfecta.Her bones are so fragile and break easily.Before her birth she had already had 7 breaks and during her short life time she had had 64 breaks.Although life is pretty abnormal with the breaks,this small family continue to live happily.Until Willow was 6 years old and a vacation to Disneyland turned out to be a disaster,Charlotte suddenly filed a lawsuit suing her own best friend Piper for malpractice.This suit is known as a ‘wrongful birth’lawsuit.This means that Charlotte was saying she wished she could abort Willow if she was informed earlier about her disease.This lawsuit,in fact has ruined the family.Sean also filed a lawsuit against his wife and later he also legally asked for a divorce.Amelia turned into a bulimic teenager,a shoplifter,and everything she wasn’t before.While Willow herself feels so bad for herself because she knows her mother doesn’t want her and she feels she is not being loved.Charlotte filed that lawsuit for the money the might have if she wins,the money she can use to provide a better life for Willow,for buying her a new sport wheelchair,an adapted car,pamindrote shots,and everything that can make her daughter experience life to its fullest potential,but is this a wise choice?

I love Willow O’Keefe since the begining.She is smart,lovely,and just wonderful.That’s why I hate Charlotte sorely.Not just because she committed to say that she wants to abort her daughter in the court,even though it’s just a lie but also she betrayed her bestfriend .My favourite character here,however,is Piper Reece.What I like the most about this novel is how Jodi describe Amelia’s feelings because it’s exactly what I often feel.The words is powerful and swing my emotion ups and downs from the very beginning.The ending is what I found so disturbing.SPOILER ALERT!CONTINUE READING AT YOUR OWN RISKS:Willow died at the end,not because she broke,but she was drown.Somehow I didn’t feel the emotion while reading this scene I don’t know why,although I don’t cry easily over stories and movies,but still I didn’t feel even a slightest bit of sadness like when I read My Sister Keeper and Anna died.I feel Jodi is going to repeat her plot twist success in My Sister Keeper but this one didn’t turn out to be as good as the former one.The ending ruins the whole amazing story but afterall the process of reading all of the chapters are wonderful and I still found myself willing to write a review for this one.I recommend this one esp for Jodi’s fans.
I wonder why this cake is named after lemon although it contains just a very very very little lemon.I guess that’s how people are being labelled too.Just only because of a small act a person do they are being called after that.If you make that small act a good one,you are known as a good person,and vice versa.This post afterall has been too long but I think that’s okay because this will be my last post in 2016.Happy New Year folks!!!

Be Something Beautiful

I have been on a movie marathon tonight and for this one:lesson learned-sometimes we have to be a bitch to build our career and neglecting everything else in our life and that’s good as long as it is your own choice and not because you have no choice.Miranda is not the bad guy here just remember it,some people are destined to be like that and we need that kind of people in our life too.Just make sure you know your role in this mad world and just do your job.4 from 5 stars.

Aboout this one,I know it’s an old movie but I haven’t watched it until today seriously I have missed one of the best cartoons ever.I loveee this a lot.Highly recommended!

Prisoners Of Time

Speaking about time,it’s has been a while since my last post.I actually have been thinking to post about Belila Belle since months ago but it seems like I never actually have the time!She is Mexican a photographer,art director,and realism poet and her works are totally awesome,especially this one.The pictures and the captions are always deeply related and outstanding,they make you think, urge you to sit down and reflect about it for a while.Everytime I did it,I ended up wondering and being amazed about how genius she is.That photo up there and the caption is related to each other.If I came across to that photo of a Daniel Wellington Watch with concrete pillars bounding its owner’s hands without reading the caption,I could have passed it and continued to scroll down and missed a masterpiece.Also if I only read the caption without any photos with it,I won’t get the feel as when there is an illustration completing it.Belila expresses her provoking thoughts in one or two sentences with a picture and as we all can see,she is really good at it.

All of us can never ever escape time.It’s funny for me to think that I often don’t have time for blogging or reading or for work out while time is actually always there.You never actually live your life without time being passed,it always goes on with you,with your life.The concept of time itself has been confusing me until now.I never really understand it.I am always interested in this subject although to be completely honest,trying to understand a wormhole diagram or relativity theories makes me feel like a total loser.I read it while I am alone and nobody is watching me because I just don’t feel like people know this.I know it’s weird for a 17 years old student slaving over wormhole theory diagram in her free time but yeah I have said this for a 1000 times to you that I’m weird all you can do is just to deal with it.

Days by days passed,months by months,then years by years.Suddenly I’m already in my senior year and I’m going to turn 18 next year and I’m terrified as heck.What is time and where it goes?This is one of my biggest questions in life.Reaching 8th grade I finally concluded that time is maybe just an illusion.It doesn’t actually exist but it is there.Yeah,so damn clear and understandable right??Pardon me.I thought that the concept of ‘years,months,weeks,days,minutes,and seconds’ is created by mankind,isn’t it?So,basically it is just an illusion,an abstract concept we created to organize our life,to mark some important events ever happened in mankind history,to report and highlight life.If I create my own time concept like 22 ticks of the clock means a seconds and 66 ticks means a minute,I don’t change the time itself.Time still goes on.I don’t change anything,I only change the way how to measure time just like there are many ways to measure lengths an inch means 2,5 cm etc.That’s why when people ask me ‘What time is it?’my brain always processing so many possibilities.That question can be answered by ‘ we are 3 hours earlier before the breakfast’ instead of ‘It’s 4 Am!’Uh okay I don’t want to think further about this because my head hurt.I will continue to talk about this later,let’s just move the topic to something lighter.About this week,my hormone fluctuation has been a bipolar pendulum once again and what is sad about it is that even when now I have been so MINDFUL and TOTALLY AWARE about it I still can’t change anything.I can’t control it,my emotion,my sadness,my sudden anger.I mean,in my mind,in my head,I am self-conscious about some responses my body gives and I try to control it,I try to get rid off feelings because I don’t like it,it makes life harder,but I failed.I think I can give it a try again next time because nothing is worse that knowing than you can’t control your own being,that your freedom is actually being violated by your own stupid hormone fluctuation darn it.I want to be in control of my own happiness,is this too much to ask?

Just watch a good movie,this is fun and worth to watch!4/5 stars from me!

Have a good night!See ya next ‘time’ ahahha!
