Twilight

Author: Stephenie Meyer

Characters: Edward Cullen, Isabella Swan, Jacob Black, Esme Cullen, Carlisle Cullen, Emmett Cullen, Alice Cullen and Jasper Cullen.


Stephenie Meyer has made a labyrinth of words in which everyone lost themselves. Twilight is a supernatural romance story centering Isabella Swan (Bella) and Edward. Since Bella is the one narrating this story the readers get an insight to Bella's intense feelings.


Bella is an ordinary seventeen year old girl who had came to live in Forks with his father, a place which is always overshadowed with clouds obscuring deadly secrets.


On the first day of her school Bella finds herself intrigued by a Godlike boy but the problem is the more she tries to get closer to him the farther away he goes. Now what will Bella do?


On the other hand Edward is tortured by his thirst that can only be satisfied from Bella's blood but in a weird twist of fate, he falls in love with her. So either he would kill Bella and satisfy his thirst or change her into a vampire - and take away her humanity - so that he could keep her forever. No matter what he choose he will end up killing the first woman he has fallen in love with in over hundred years. He believes that he could find a way to keep Bella alive and still be with him. Can he? 



Meanwhile, Bella befriends Jacob who is a native American but even his tribe has a secret which makes them natural enemies of vampires.


In the midst of all the secrets and supernatural creatures, will Bella be able to live happily with Edward and more importantly, will Bella be able to live at all?



It's an exciting story and you can't stop once you start reading. It has dramatically changed people's opinion about vampires. If Bram Sroker's Count Dracula gave people a new reason to fear the dark then Stephenie Meyer's Edward Cullen has given millions of teenage girls the reason to sigh and wist their boyfriends were remotely close to him.


Needless to say, it's a beautifully written novel with an amazing vocabulary and have received a great response all over the world.

Rough Patch

People act like an idiot and say that they are just going through a rough patch. They smoke, they drink, they do drugs, all in the name of a rough patch. "I am sad and feeling down that's why cheated on my girlfriend because I didn't knew how to be around her without feeling like a loser". People with such stupid excuses needs to understand that Life is a rough path. It's cruel, it's pathetic, it's unfair and it's sad. All in all it sucks but that doesn't mean you can hide in a dark room cocooned in a bed. You have to keep it together, put a brave face and at least try to be humane no matter what because there is always going to be rough patches and we will just have to  learn to live with it.

Hate that I Love you


That’s how much I love youThat’s how much I need youAnd I can’t stand yaMost everything you do make me wanna smileCan I not like it for a while?
No, but you won’t let meYou upset me, girl, and then you kiss my lipsAll of a sudden I forget that I was upsetCan’t remember what you did
But I hate itYou know exactly what to doSo that I can’t stay mad at youFor too long, that’s wrong
But, I hate itYou know exactly how to touchSo that I don’t wanna fuss and fight no moreSaid, I despise that I adore you
And I hate how much I love you, boyI can’t stand how much I need youAnd I hate how much I love you, boyBut I just can’t let you goAnd I hate that I love you so
And you completely know the power that you haveThe only one that makes me laughSad and it’s not fair how you take advantage of the factThat I love you beyond the reason whyAnd it just ain’t right
And I hate how much I love you, girlI can’t stand how much I need youAnd I hate how much I love you, girlBut I just can’t let you goBut I hate that I love you so
One of these days, maybe your magic won’t affect meAnd your kiss won’t make me weakBut no one in this world knows me the way you know meSo you’ll probably always have a spell on me, yay
That’s how much I love youThat's how much I need youThat’s how much I love youThat’s how much I need youAnd I hate that I love you so
And I hate how much I love you, boyI can’t stand how much I need youAnd I hate how much I love you, girlBut I just can’t let you goBut I hate that I love you soAnd I hate that I love you so, so

If anyone has ever loved someone then that person knows how confusing and passionate your feelings could be. Loving someone so much that you can't stay without them is frightening and crazy. Hate that I love you is something you can't help but feel about your lover.

Need you Now by Lady Antebellum


Picture perfect memoriesScattered all around the floorReaching for the phone 'causeI can't fight it anymore
And I wonder if IEver cross your mindFor me it happens all the time
It's a quarter after oneI'm all aloneAnd I need you nowSaid I wouldn't callBut I've lost all controlAnd I need you now
And I don't know howI can do withoutI just need you now
Another shot of whiskeyCan't stop looking at the doorWishing you'd come sweepingIn the way you did before
And I wonder if IEver cross your mindFor me it happens all the time
It's a quarter after oneI'm a little drunkAnd I need you nowSaid I wouldn't callBut I've lost all controlAnd I need you now
And I don't know howI can do withoutI just need you now
Whoa, whoaGuess I'd rather hurtThan feel nothing at all
It's a quarter after oneI'm all aloneAnd I need you nowAnd I said I wouldn't callBut I'm a little drunkAnd I need you now
And I don't know howI can do withoutI just need you nowI just need you now
Oh baby, I need you now

This is a perfect post-break up song. No matter how messy or cold or wretched your breakup was, a time comes when every cell in your body wishes that you were with your ex. In my opinion its okay to wish to be with your ex until and unless you actually go back to him. Always remember there was a good reason because of which you broke up and no amount of time could dissolve the issues between two lovers. Just an advice.

Bullies

Personally I hate bullies and I think they are the most coward people of all. Please guys it might be fun to bully some poor kid and you might not think a lot about it but for a person who is bullied everyday repeatedly its like constant hell. Live and let Live. I am not asking you to love everyone but just tolerate and respect and try to understand the people around you. After all we all belong to the same species.

The Twilight Saga Movies

The reason why fans all over the world hold their breath for Twilight movies is not because the movies are great or even good but because the novels are AMAZING! But somehow as the time passed the movies became better and actors started acting, which brings us to the last movie, Breaking Dawn Part 2. 

Even though there was no flow in the beginning, just scene after scene of "Oh! we are so happy" but near the end there was a beautiful flow in the story and a breath-taking twist. The only issue I ever had with the ending in the novel was that the whole second part is devoted to everyone getting ready to fight but that never happens. Don't get me wrong - I love happy endings - but I wouldn't have minded few dead bodies, just few.

 Spoiler Alert! In movie we can see Alice's vision where The Volturi is being massacred by the Cullens and their friends and Aro sees with a HD  picture quality how he was burned by newborn Bella Cullen. That explained why in the novel he was looking so peculiarly at Bella. Long story short he gets super scared and he runs for the hills

My favorite part in the whole movie was how in some scenes the words from novels were shown. Like when Edward and Bella were sitting in their meadow and Bella lets Edward read her thoughts, then just at the end, the last line of the novel is shown and the word forever is highlighted. It was beautiful. 

Christina Perri's Thousand Years was just a perfect ending of a magical saga and Green Day's forgotten was a bittersweet goodbye.

Maybe because it was the last movie of the saga or maybe because I saw it with my boyfriend on our anniversary, whatever the reason I Loved it....

Not Afraid by Eminem

[Chorus]
I’m not afraid to take a stand
Everybody come take my hand
We’ll walk this road together, through the storm
Whatever weather, cold or warm
Just let you know that, you’re not alone
Hola if you feel that you’ve been down the same road

[Intro]
Yeah, It’s been a ride…
I guess i had to go to that place to get to this one
Now some of you might still be in that place
If you’re trying to get out, just follow me
I’ll get you there

[Verse 1]
You can try and read my lyrics off of this paper before I lay ‘em
But you won’t take the sting out these words before I say ‘em
Cause ain’t no way I’m let you stop me from causing mayhem
When I say ‘em or do something I do it, I don’t give a damn
What you think, I’m doing this for me, so f-ck the world
Feed it beans, it’s gassed up, if a thinks its stopping me
I’mma be what I set out to be, without a doubt undoubtedly
And all those who look down on me I’m tearing down your balcony
No if ands or buts don’t try to ask him why or how can he
From Infinite down to the last Relapse album he’s still sh*ttin,
Whether he’s on salary, paid hourly
Until he battles out or he sh*t just battles out of him
Whichever comes first, for better or worse
He’s married to the game, like a f*ck you for Christmas
His gift is a curse, forget the earth he’s got the urge
To pull his d*ck from the dirt and f*ck the whole Universe

[Chorus]

[Verse 2]
Ok quit playin’ with the scissors and sh*t, and cut the crap
I shouldn’t have to rhyme these words in the rhythm for you to know it’s a rap
You said you was king, you lied through your teeth
For that f*ck your feelings, instead of getting crowned you’re getting capped
And to the fans, I’ll never let you down again, I’m back
I promise to never go back on that promise, in fact
Let’s be honest, that last Relapse CD was “ehhhh”
Perhaps I ran them accents into the ground
Relax, I ain’t going back to that now
All I’m tryna say is get back, click-clack BLAOW
Cause I ain’t playin’ around
There’s a game called circle and I don’t know how
I’m way too up to back down
But I think I’m still tryna figure this crap out
Thought I had it mapped out but I guess I didn’t
This f*cking black cloud still follow’s me around
But it’s time to exercise these demons
These motherf*kers are doing jumping jacks now!

[Chorus]

[Bridge]
And I just can’t keep living this way
So starting today, I’m breaking out of this cage
I’m standing up, Imma face my demons
I’m manning up, Imma hold my ground
I’ve had enough, now I’m so fed up
Time to put my life back together right now

[Verse 3]
It was my decision to get clean, I did it for me
Admittedly I probably did it subliminally for you
So I could come back a brand new me, you helped see me through
And don’t even realise what you did, believe me you
I been through the ringer, but they can do little to the middle finger
I think I got a tear in my eye, I feel like the king of
My World, haters can make like bees with no stingers, and drop dead
No more beef flingers, no more drama from now on, I promise

To focus solely on handling my responsibility’s as a father
So I solemnly swear to always treat this roof like my daughters and raise it
You couldn’t lift a single shingle on it
Cause the way I feel, I’m strong enough to go to the club
Or the corner pub and lift the whole liquor counter up
Cause I’m raising the bar, I shoot for the moon
But I’m too busy gazing at stars, I feel amazing and

[Chorus]
I’m not afraid to take a stand
Everybody come take my hand
We’ll walk this road together, through the storm
Whatever weather, cold or warm
Just let you know that, you’re not alone
Holla if you feel that you’ve been down the same road


Official Video:

The reason I love this song so much is that it makes me feels like no matter how much you screw up or how much pain you face you can always recover and make a comeback. Just face your demons and move on.

What goes around....comes back around

"What goes around...comes back around", What does it mean? 


You backstab your friend and your favorite heels brake in the middle of the road in a rainy day and you have to hop all the way home....
You cheat in exam and you cant find Autoriksha for two hours while returning home....
Some Casanova guy plays with millions of women but could never be with the one girl  he loves the most....

I guess it means we make our own heaven or hell and we have to live in it in this world only. Maybe there is a after-life, maybe not but We cannot escape this world without facing the consequences of our actions. After all every action has a equal and opposite reaction..

XOXO

Seven Deadly Sins - Vampire Diaries Style

Lust - Damon Salvatore
I think we all can agree that Damon is Sex-on-Legs. His devilish smirk, perfectly sculptured body and awesome leather pants makes every girl wanna pop their veins for him.







Some girls just can't resist my good looks, my style and my charm and my unflinching ability to listen to Taylor Swift.
- Damon Salvatore


Gluttony - Stefan Salvatore
Mr. Ripper sucks, sucks and sucks. He wants girls and he wants their BLOOD.





Greed - Klaus Mikaelson
He wants a family, Stefan as a best friend, a hot blonde Caroline, an ancient hunter from the brotherhood of five and the secret cure to vampirysm, Elena's blood and an army of Vampire werewolf hybrids. greedy, greedy....



Sloth - Rebekah Mikaelson
That woman had spent her entire dead-undead life in a coffin and when she comes back after few days she is again dagger-ed and after re-coming back she is again in a coffin. Dude!




Wrath - Alaric Saltzman
Wrath turned our favorite history teacher into a vampire hunter and more wrath turned him into some psycho vampire hunter who kills not only vampires but even those who sympathies with them.



Envy - Caroline Forbes
She is jealous of Elena, She is jealous of anyone who comes near her ex-boyfriend Matt AND She is jealous of anyone who comes near her current boyfriend Tyler. Sad...





Pride - Katherine Pierce
If a woman can destroy as many lives she had and still betray, kill and manipulate many more while taking sips of margarita then it has to be pride...







Even though Guilt is not a sin, I think we can all agree that Elena Gilbert breathes, eats and weeps Guilt.




XOXO
