Ant #136. Black and white.

BLACK: My stalker has come back.

WHITE: In 10 days I'm going to South America.

BLACK: I think I've failed my exam today.

WHITE: My laptop is fixed after "epic flooding".

BLACK: I'm on a diet and haven't eaten any sweet more than a week.

WHITE: My New Year trip is confirmed, managed and booked! I'm going to Georgia. (to be announced soon!).

BLACK: I spent all my money and cannot pay for my institute. I'm a bankrupt.

WHITE:  It's snowing! ^_^


We all have black and white stripes in our lives.
And that's annoying!
I wish we all have only bright colorful stripes!

Ant #135. Multitasking.

Sometimes I wish I had 10 hands and 5 heads.
I try to be multitasking, but it's too hard for me.
I'm not talking about eating and watching TV at the same time, no. I mean situations when you have to resolve many problems quickly and effectively. And my brain simply refuse to function.
Now is exactly this f*cking time. I have to fix my laptop, to find money for upcoming trip, to think about New Year Eve, to do something with my sh*tty job and finally I have to sort out with my personal life. Heaven, help me!!!

I always wonder how people can do so many things all at once. 
I only can do one by one, or I'll f*ck up all of them. I need to be very concentrated on details, this is how I live. But now I don't have enough time. 
I'm not giving up, but the more my deadline is coming closer, the more I wanna say "F*ck it all" and run away.

Ant #134. Epic fail.

Every time I think my life it getting better something happens to me.

Last night I spilled a tea (just a few drops) on my laptop, my pure MacBook Pro. I immediately grabbed a napkin and took all the liquid off. My device seemed working and I relaxed. But in 30 minutes the key "S" broke, then "shift". I ran away to bathroom and came back with a hair dryer. I wanted to dry the keyboard, but in a few second I saw that keys were melting! O_o
I almost started to cry! (((

I switched my mac off and fell asleep. At the morning I switched it on, but half of keys weren't working. I called to authorized service center, explain them a problem. They told me to come tomorrow with my laptop, they are going to diagnose it (for $100) and fix it ($300-1000 depending on what really broke). Fuuuuuuuuuuu....

What can I do now? Just pay. Damn it! (((((

Here it is.

Ant #133. MADONNA: the one and the only.

Yes, yes, it's another one post about my fav singer ever.
But this time I'm not gonna tell you about her current tour or her next singles.

Last months I've been reading many exciting articles about her (that's good) and also hateful comments below (that's bad).
They say:
- she's too old,
- she has to retire,
- she's talentless,
- she's nothing,
- she's desperate,
- she's irrelevant,
- she is in the past.

I just smile )))

I understand when people dislike something or somebody. It's their choice, their taste. For example, I don't like Rihanna and Lady Gaga. But even if the first doesn't have #1 album in US and the second sells her album for $0,99, it's silly to say they are "nothing". I admit that they both have a big success, but it doesn't change my opinion about them.
So I would like to hear something real from people, but not their stupid emotions based on a jealousy.

Let me show you some numbers. Not from her previous career, but from 2012.
Just a few facts!

MDNA (Deluxe Version)
1) MDNA album.

With only pre-order MDNA album became #1 in more than 50 countries and the biggest pre-order in iTunes history.
After its release in march it became #1 again in more than 40 countries.
With 12th #1 album in UK Madonna became the most successful solo-artist in the history of this country.

Super Bowl 46 Halftime Show
2) Super Bowl Halftime show.

It was her the only one promo-performance, but it was enough to remind everyone who is the Queen.
Madonna had the largest viewership for a Halftime Show in Super Bowl history and history of american television - 117,8 million viewers, 3 million more than the game itself.

MDNA Tour (Milan, Italy)
3) MDNA Tour.

It's absolutely obvious that MDNA Tour is set to be the most grossing tour of the year and one of the most grossing tours in history. Some numbers:
"Following the tickets sale opening, the tour created immense success at the box office and many venues were sold out. In Tel Aviv, 33,000 tickets for the first show at Ramat Gan Stadium were selling fast in the months previous to the premiere. Madonna's first ever show in Abu Dhabi had fans lined up in front of the Virgin Megastore for tickets of 24 hours before they went on general sale. All initial 22,000 tickets sold out in record-breaking one hour, prompting the promoter to add the second date there, which in turn sold out within a week. In Turkey, 47,000 tickets for the show in Istanbul sold out in four days. In the United States, 60,000 tickets for a show in Yankee Stadium, New York City sold out in 20 minutes, prompting Live Nation to add a second date. Tickets for the show in Kansas City sold out in 12 minutes, while the show in Houston sold out in less than an hour. In Canada, the concert at the Bell Centre sold 16,000 tickets in 20 minutes, along with the show at the Plains of Abraham, selling 65,000 tickets in one hour. In Ottawa, 15,000 tickets for the show in Scotiabank Place sold out in 21 minutes, becoming the fastest-selling concert in the arena's 16-year history, beating out previous record holder AC/DC in 2009. All available tickets for Madonna's first date in Amsterdam sold out in 30 minutes, prompting Live Nation once again to add a second date. In Colombia, 38,000 tickets for her first concert in Medellín sold exclusively during the pre-sale and remaining 2,000 tickets for the public sale sold out in three hours. Madonna's first show in Medellín sold out in a record breaking 15 hours prompting the promoter to add the second date there. 15,000 pre-sale tickets for the second Medellín date sold out. Madonna also sold more than 100,000 tickets in two days for three shows in Brazil."

You still think she's irrelevant?
I think she's more relevant than she's ever been!

But it absolutely doesn't mean you have to love her. I just ask you to stop being ignorant and show (at least) a lil bit respect to the woman who makes a history.

Thanx and have a nice day.

Ant #130. Le Petit Prince

"And at night you will look up at the stars. Where I live everything is so small that I cannot show you where my star is to be found. It is better, like that. My star will just be one of the stars, for you. And so you will love to watch all the stars in the heavens... they will all be your friends. And, besides, I am going to make you a present..." 
He laughed again. 
"Ah, little prince, dear little prince! I love to hear that laughter!"  
"That is my present. Just that. It will be as it was when we drank the water..."  
"What are you trying to say?"  
"All men have the stars," he answered, "but they are not the same things for different people. For some, who are travelers, the stars are guides. For others they are no more than little lights in the sky. For others, who are scholars, they are problems. For my businessman they were wealth. But all these stars are silent. You - you alone - will have the stars as no one else has them."  
"What are you trying to say?"  
"In one of the stars I shall be living. In one of them I shall be laughing. And so it will be as if all the stars were laughing, when you look at the sky at night... you - only you - will have stars that can laugh!"  
And he laughed again.  
"And when your sorrow is comforted (time soothes all sorrows) you will be content that you have known me. You will always be my friend. You will want to laugh with me. And you will sometimes open your window, so, for that pleasure... and your friends will be properly astonished to see you laughing as you look up at the sky! Then you will say to them, 'Yes, the stars always make me laugh!' And they will think you are crazy. It will be a very shabby trick that I shall have played on you..."

The Little Prince

I'm not sure if you know or not, but "The Little Prince" by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry is my favorite book ever.
The first time I read it when I was a teenager. I was so charmed. I found it very... entertaining. Yes, entertaining. Being a 14 yo boy I couldn't see all its hidden sense, depth and enormous beauty. Then I grew up and read it again, opening its new sides. In a few months I read it again...
Now I even cannot count how many times I've read it. Countlessly.
And every time I read it I find something new, something that was hidden from my eyes before.
The text above is my fav part of the book.
