A Nameless Love

Inspired by the animated movie: Your name.

If only I was brave enough to whisper it to the air.
To let the vibrations of the atoms send joyful signals to his ears.
But that would only awaken my fears.

I’m a coward.
I’m scared of exposing my feelings for him.
I’m afraid of looking him in the eye
And telling a lie,
A lie that I know that he wants to hear,
<<I don’t love you>>
Those words, not my own
Those words that I know that he secretly holds in his heart
And believes to be what’s in mine. Continue reading “A Nameless Love”

Why music captivates:‏

There is something magical about the way music can influence one’s mood,emotions and thoughts.

Whilst listening to one’s favourite tune your heart beat can drop instantly. Music can be a drug to calm us but also a fiery substance that could negatively influence us.

I’m a massive introvert and with that comes my reliance on music to help me get through very awkward social interactions. You could say that music is my escape from reality. An escape into someone else’s imagination.

I feel as if someone is prompting me to understand their words when I put my earphones in. A world where upon I create the scenery.

Where the tree leaves are purple and the streets are gold. Where laughter is heard regularly. My world.

Music captivates me in ways that never seizes to make me smile. In ways that I am grateful for.

Let’s all take inspiration from this unlikely source!

Orange (movie) review

Orange ,which is based off a manga series by  Ichigo Takano, is an eye- catching and poignant story of high school students who are given a chance to radically change their future. I have been itching to watch the film ever since it was announced that Kento Yamazaki would play the lead. Yamazaki definitely did not disappoint – he depicted young Kakeru Naruse beautifully along side the other cast.


The plot almost follows the same underline meaning as Ao Haru ride which also depicts a teenage boy who is battered with scars from his past and needs support and care from his friends. However, this is where the similarities of the two mangas stop as they both carry different weights and emotional ties that should be experienced. Continue reading “Orange (movie) review”

Mr Nietzsche in the convenience store (Review)

Salut mes amis !

Weeks have gone past since I have been able to sit done and indulge without feeling the guilt that comes with procrastination. However, I did manage to complete a whole drama during my procrastination sessions which ,if I may add, is very impressive.

Mr Nietzsche in the convenience store is a Japanese drama that seems to be at the top of the Must see list this Spring. To be honest, I never knew that such brilliance existed until it buzzed into all my social media platforms and ,as you do, I decided to follow the crowd. I am pleased to say that Mr Nietzsche in the convenience store was far better than I expected.

The universe versus Alex Woods by Gavin Extence (Book review)


Salut mes amis !
It has been a long time since I have done a media review and what is better than to do a book review on the latest book that I have finished : The universe versus Alex Woods. Published in 2013 The Universe versus Alex Woods (TUVAW) was the debut novel by new author Gavin Extence and what a debut it was .


“Alex Woods knows that he hasn’t had the most conventional start of life . He knows that growing up with a clairvoyant single mother won’t endear him to the local bullies.

He also knows that even the most improbable events can happen -he’s got the scars to prove it.

What he doesnt know yet is that when he meets ill-tempered, reclusive widower Mr Peterson , he’ll make an unlikely friend. Someone who tells him that you only get one shot at life . That you have to make the best possible choices .

So when aged seventeen , Alex is stopped at Dover customs with 113 grams of marijuana an urn full of ashes on the passenger seat, and an entire nation in uproar, he’s fairly sure he’s done the right thing . ”

The book in my opinion was very slow paced and I found it difficult to stick to the ever changing topics especially in the beginning when I was left confused with the change of time frame (present to past ) . However I eventually got into it as I was awaiting the answer to the mystery of why he was stopped st customs and what did Alex Woods actually do because most of the time I was made to believe that there was actually no plotline .
Despite everything written above , I did actually enjoy this book . I loved the underlying theme of Death and life which may I add was projected in a way that would touch the hardest of hearts . The character of Alex Woods was well created , his personality both intrigued me and annoyed the hell out of me .

Stars : 4/5 🌟🌟🌟🌟
I would definitely recommend TUVAW, the amount of research that the author did to get the character of Alex Woods was impeccable. The mind of Alex woods is something that I wouldn’t mind revisiting .

I hope that you enjoyed this quick review . 🙂
