Veronica Decides to Die by Paulo Coelho

Veronica Decides to Die by Paulo Coelho
Media Log # 1 

( --> Check this out :)

          Veronica works in a library and appears to have a perfect life in Ljubljana but she decides to commit suicide by taking 4 pack of pills. While waiting for her death, she read an article entitled "Where is Slovenia?" she decided to write a letter explaining that Slovenia was one of the five republics into which the former Yugoslavia had been divided. Veronica wants to die because everything in her life was the same and people don't even know where Slovenia is.
           Her plan fails, one of the nuns save her and bring her to Villete - a mental hospital in Slovenia. During her internment in Villete she realises that she has nothing to lose and can therefore do what she wants, say what she wants and be who she wants without having to worry about what others think of her; as a mental patient, she is unlikely to be criticized and there he met Eduard - who has a schizophrenia. Veronica realized some part of her like a world where everyone struggles to survive whatever the cost, and how could one judge those people who decide to die?
  Reflective and Critical Responses..
           - Paulo Coelho wanted to know all the details about what happened to Veronica because he was also admitted into an asylum (mental hospital). (it was show in the pdf file of Veronica wants to die - the reasons of Paulo Coelho.)
           - It is a suspense story that gives me (or anyone maybe) an idea, why Veronica wants to die in the first place.. and what are the reasons of Paulo Coelho wrote this story.. 

           - At first I didn't thought that, aside from having a mental problem, there are people who wants to die just because they having the same routine everyday.. I feel bad cause Veronica did that... I mean, if your bored in your life.. do something that makes your life extreme and exciting not just ended your life with nothing. :)
Naa. I hate the ending! I thought she's going to die :)
           - The story is about a life with a meaning behind, meaning there are necessary things that will happen to you in the future and it depends on you if your going to mess it now or wait it at the right time :) It is a realistic story because it shows people with mental disorder and how your going to deal with it. 

          - This story was sent for the readers to realize that every second of existence is a choice we all make between living and dying. Against all odds Veronica finds herself falling in love and even wanting to live again.

My Personal Reaction 

          I like it very much.. Honestly! Every parts or scenes makes the readers to think critically about their life in the future.. I ask myself personally - what will happen to me in the future .. I just want to die Happy and Contented :)

Naa. Sorry for bad English!

Missing Friends!

How I miss my FRIEND! 

          They say that true friend is always hard to find.. well I guess it’s true, finding someone whom you can trust, whom you can ask for, and whom you can keep your secrets, even though it’s a dirty secret! :D
          I’m going to share about my friend.. I have a very best friend named “Karen”, she was my best friend since I was in High School… she is so quiet, smart, kind and cheerful (even though it is kept inside of her).. When were together it feels like we own anything that we see, we always laugh and sometimes saying things about those we don’t like! I met her when we were in first year; we have this project in MAPEH that we need to sing with our partners! But both of us don’t have any partner so we team up! :)
       “Enchanter words of fairy tale, a wonder land of love.. These are things that I promise… I promise to you… “- For all of my life. Were not those great when it comes in singing but I feel that I met her in purpose – to be my friend forever… Every day we always talks about on what channel is the best, even if it’s a small thing, you can feel that it’s something you can treasure!
          If you think that letters are for lovers only, well I guess its wrong… I first wrote her a letter (even though she’s my classmate!), saying that I’m thankful that I have her and some funny jokes, and return to that, she gave me also letters.. Until now I have those letters with me! :
          Second Year and Third Year – Being a sophomore and a junior was hard I guess, I and my best friend are not much into other people, maybe because we have this “own world”. The world that “only” both of us, can understand on what we’re talking about! Sharing things like her project in T.L.E – I remember that, she had this project in this subject and then she thought that it is not that good enough to be passed so what she did is.. She throws it away! She’s very perfectionist! That is the other thing that I like her the most! J
          Fourth Year – Graduating student and there’s a lot of pressure especially for her! I always support her! Even in her academic rank – 4th place at that time… so there is a possibility that she can make it to be in 3rd place!
Deliberation Moment! I was with her at that time… and I was praying that she can make it to be in 3rd place… I’m so OA at that time because, I was the one who’s been crying because she didn’t make it (she was place in 4th)… I know how hard she done to be on top, even she don’t like to dance, she dance just to get an extracurricular! But still, I’m so proud of her! J She was the best of all the best! J
“And now that end is near…” Graduation day! I wrote a letter for her, but until now I have this letter! Hahaha! One day I should give it to her! J When my penmanship is so really bad!
This poem is for her… I miss her so badly, the bonding that we have…

When we first talked to each other
 I knew we would always be friends.
Our friendship has kept on growing
And I'll be here for you to the end.
You listen when I have a problem
And help dry the tears from my face.You take away my sorrow
And put happiness in its place.
We can't forget the fun we've had
Laughing 'til our faces turn blue
.Talking of things only we find funny
People think we're insane-
If they only knew!I guess this is my way of saying thanks
For catching me when I fall.
Thanks once again for being such a good friend
And being here with me through it all.
- Rachel Ellis
She is the best thing that’s ever been mine :)

4 Years after.. even though were far to each other, I know that I'm still her best friend and she will always be my one and only true best forever FRIEND! :)

Fix this Feeling!

Dull Day..
                   I have this feeling that I can't explain. I have a lot of things that I want to do, but I can't.. There are many reasons why, but none of them makes me contented and decided..
                        I watch a lot of movies last night like paradise kiss, love in disguise and this means war, I know a lot of girls can relate on this feeling - the feeling that your the one on the scene, and sometimes you act like them that you forgot your own identity! I want also a fairy tale love story.. (everybody wants that!) but I'm pretty sure that it will not come true because "LOVE STORY = 1 PAIR only" meaning we all have a unique love story that cannot be compared to anyone! If Cinderella found his prince charming through a glass shoe maybe you (or me) can have prince charming in other way. Am I that hopeless romantic? Haha! I just don't know what to think! 
                         "Guys are like stars... There are a million of them... but only ONE can make your dreams come true!" I do believe on that! :) I just want to share it! :)
