I am proud to announce that I have finally started on my novel ‘Black Rose’. It will be a fictional young adult story. I am wary of giving out too many details of it at the moment because I am not sure if I am going to be making some major changes to the storyline while in the beginning stages.
What inspired me to write a book? Well, I guess its something I’ve always wanted to do but I just never found the time-or I just didn’t have one idea for a storyline that I wanted to work on. I mean, yeah, over the last couple of years I have come up with myriads of different things I wanted to jot down on paper. But wanting to do something is easier said than done.
Luckily, I finally have the time now to devote a reasonable amount towards my novel. I hope to have it ready by summer, and if not by summer, then surely by fall at the latest
I have come to the decision to deactivate my facebook account for approximately 2-3 weeks for now. I might even prolong my break for a month or so.
Right now, I just don’t feel like using social networking sites, aside from tumblr and twitter. I just don’t. I have gotten so tired of using it. And I feel like I have neglected other aspects of my social life. I mean, I have other hobbies like playing my guitar, reading, writing and working on my book that I’ve promised myself I would finish before the year end. Let’s face it, facebook, facebook is hella addicting. I like it because it keeps me intouch with my family and friends that are spread throughout all four corners of the world, and I will return to it eventually. But for now, now I just want to focus on other things in my life.
And I have a lot of issues that I am still struggling, but surely dealing with. Right now this should be my main focus. Getting back on track. I have exams, tests and other things that I just really need to get back to. So that’s basically what I am trying to do. I guess you could say I am just putting things back in to perspective.
I am not going to be surprise either if I end up logging in at the end of the month and find that no one even really notices me missing. I don’t expect that either.
A week ago, my friend Deeksha and I went to Cafe Cermaique in the mall here in Doha. It’s a really awesome place, you can pick out whatever ceramic template you want and paint it, all while grabbing something to eat and drink. I love that place, I recommend anyone who lives in D-town to visit sometime. You won’t be disappointed, that’s for sure!
Anyhow, so I picked out a plate, because I previously had done a coffee mug in tribute to Japan. I will post a picture of that sometime later, but for now I want to talk about this here plate. I love Korea, I am somewhat intrigued by it’s people, culture and society. Yes, I have even taken the initiative to start learning Korean, albeit my progress with it is ..well, crappy to say the least.
On the sides written in Korean is my name, Nada, followed by a heart and the name of one of my favorite Korean actors Kim Jae Wook, Yes, i have it bad.
