Julynell’s home

For the regulars (as if there would be some ;)) a small note; I’m as of now hosting my own blog at www.julynell.com It’s not quite what I want it to be, I need to tweak the theme a little bit more, and this is a temporary theme. I am busy creating my own, but that’s taking a lot of time ;)
As soon as I am putting up my own theme on julynell.com, I will delete this blog. So step over to the other one. Sooner or later, this one is going to be gone ;)

So, last thursday, early night, World of Warcraft’s second expansion pack got released: Wrath of the Lichking. As a hard-core player, Croga has to go get it, in the middle of the night in a store that had special midnight opening for this release. I thought it would be nice to start playing again too and do something fun with my hubby. So I went with him and along came some friends too, all hard-core WoW players.

I started playing again a couple of weeks ago, after not playing for over 2 years. I had fun! :) So I decided to play some more again.

So, here we are, 1st of november already. Outside is grey and cold. In my head, it’s dark and scary..

Although this year I didn’t fear for my memories of my dad coming to haunt me, and yet they still do. I feel awful the last couple of days. The image of my dad a couple of hours before he died, are haunting me again. Read the rest of this entry »

Everybody’s looking for that something
One thing that makes it all complete
You find it in the strangest places
Places you never knew it could be

Some find it in the face of their children
Some find it in their lover’s eyes
Who can deny the joy it brings
When you found that special thing
You’re flying without wings

Some find it sharing every morning
Some in their solitary lives
You find it in the words of others
A simple line can make you laugh or cry

You find it in the deepest friendship
The kind you cherish all your life
And when you know how much that means
You’ve found that special thing
You’re flying without wings

So impossible as they may seem
You’ve got to fight for every dream
‘Cause who’s to know
Which one you let go
Would have made you complete

Well, for me it’s waking up beside you
To watch the sunrise on your face
To know that I can say I love you
In any given time or place
It’s little things that only I know
Those are the things that make you mine

And it’s like flying without wings
‘Cause you’re my special thing
I’m flying without wings

And you’re the place my life begins
And you’ll be where it ends
I’m flying without wings
And that’s the joy you bring
I’m flying without wings

I love this song. Enough said ;)

“So it’s been 3 months. Holy shit, 3 months?!? Are you sure? Yes, look at the date on the last post…it says 10th of June…”

Okay, so I neglected this a bit. A quick recap on things; we have been awfully busy. One birthday after the next and I redecorated the living room.
The plan was to do it together but Croga got a new assignment for which he had to travel to Amsterdam every day, so he couldn’t help me. I did it on my own in two weeks. I painted the walls and the ceiling. Everything white, except for one wall, which is a dark red. Next to that we bought a new couch and a new dinner table, which are still to be delivered. Hopefully they will arrive a week before my birthday (which is the 8th of november). And we got new curtains. Our living room looks pretty nice right now :D It’s ‘our’ place, right now, after six years of living here :) About time, I think :)

So all is well :)

All is good, to start of with :) It’s been pretty dead here due to the weather and my busyness with all sorts of things. Mainly going to the gym (I started that again a few weeks ago, have to loose some weight), hanging around outside (its summer), and still working on the Scotland page now and then. Trying to find some inspiration for a wordpress theme and so on and so forth. I am enjoying myself, don’t worry ;)
Ow, and the Scotland page? Still in progress, little steps at a time :) But at least there is progress ;)

Warrior of Light

When a warrior is the victim of injustice, he usually tries to be alone, in order not to show his pain to others.

This is both good and bad.

It is one thing to allow one's heart to heal it's wounds slowly, but it is quite another to sit all day in deep contemplation for fear of seeming weak.

Inside each of us there lives an angel and a devil, and their voices are very alike. Confronted by a problem, the devil encourages that solitary conversation, trying to show us how vulnerable we are. The angel makes us reflect upon our attitudes and occasionally needs someone else's mouth to reveal itself.

A warrior balances solitude and dependence.
