Wow, aren't you quite the flatterer... You are making me feel pretty humble. To say you feel like I am an inspiring person is probably the best compliment you could give me. Thank you.

And you were right about the writing... I am actually a student, I have studied for a year and have to more to go in university. My course is titled Film Studies (which means basically film analysis and history and general knowledge and our studies comprise mainly of writing essays) and Creative Writing (last year we covered Fiction, Drama, Non-Fiction and Poetry and for next year I have chosen Fiction and Poetry). So, I have to say you were very close... :)

However, I am not sure what I want to do, as you asked me, and even now that I study writing, I don't ever really think of myself as a "writer" or that I would one day become a "writer". I am becoming more and more certain of that writing is something I want to do, but to be honest I am not one for making plans for teh future. As writing (and film) feels good right now, that is what I will do.

I think, though, that to choose to write is not really a choice of career for me in the basic sense of the word. I am getting to know writing at the moment, yes, but all the same I feel it is more of a life style than a job. And I am happy with it that way. Writing has been therapy, inspiration, communication... And I guess all of those things are basic things to me. So, I always try not to think about what sells in terms of writing, or what would bring me money, but just write what feels like it should be written. I think my ideal would be to write only things that spring from inside, things that are true and honest... Well, it is something I can never cease to go towards - always more to learn. :)

It was a long process to settle down to study for three years. I am 23 now, and since finishing high school 4 years ago I spent some time simply looking for myself, I think... Getting lost and finding my way back... Or to some place else. Those years were painful, but, as you recently said, I too have started to think things like that must be the things that create you and finally show who you are and make you the person you will be from here now.

So, although I am now studying and happy doing what I do, I am quite doubtful about whether it is something I will be doing "for teh rest of my life" for... I have begun to wonder if I am a person like that at all - a person who does the same thing for years. I seem to have so many interests I feel a little scattered at times, like I cannot settle down, to commit to anything or like I don't have an identity that stays firmly similar from day to day, week to week. But I think I might just have to accept that... Maybe the life everyone always seems to be teaching me to live is not something that everyone should live. Hmm, difficult, hard, things... And even if I do find my answer for these questions, it may for just now, not forever...

So, how are you today? I noticed your blog's lay-out has changed a little: There is a picture of a baby on the left - I assume this is the baby you are an aunt to? :) And the quote by Marcel Proust is absolutely lovely (and important!). For me anyway, it has been such a long way to learn that only the people who light us are the ones who are worthwhile. We really don't have to deal with anyone. They waste our time. They don't really love us. And we would probably never be able to love them either... Well, maybe so, but at least there would never be love between us and them. So, something to learn about self worth at least: to remember we don't have to spend our time around someone who only makes us feel bad of ourselves or around whom we feel like we must be something more or less than who we are. :)

PS. I am quite curious about you, too... I would love to know what you are doing, and also, I was wondering what it is/was that was making you so sad and making you say you are going through times that are truly shaping you but I wonder if that is a too personal question to ask...
