BLOG: You can be anything!

Yes, that’s right, life is full of paths and options for you to chose the one you like the best and the one that best suits you, so never doubt of yourself because you can be anything if you set your mind and actions towards that goal.

Everything is achievable, because every goal and profession has a route to succeed, just remember that yes, YOU CAN BE ANYTHING, just don’t expect to become something overnight, therefore if you wanna be a doctor, go to college and study hard for 6 years; if you wanna be a YouTuber, grab a camera and start recording yourself, you will begin with 0 (zero) subscribers but if you keep posting your community will grow; if you wanna be poet, start writing some verses and with time you’ll have enough to publish a book; and even you wanna become a porn star you can start by opening and onlyfans account and well.. you can guess the rest.

Also remember, that you can chose and change your path at any moment of your life, so it doesn’t matter if you are a 30 years old bearded latin man, if you want to you can become the logo of a famous doll brand if you let your hair grow long enough to make a ponytail. And here’s the proof.

Life in plastic, it’s fantastic! 
Because even if it’s self made and fake. If you believe it’s real then it is! (at least in your mind). And remember that dreams sometimes sounds funny, impossible or even stupid until they are achieved. So don’t be too surprised when I become the image of a doll in the future. Because I want to be a big, huge, famous artist, philosopher and writer with a doll named and inspired on me... And I won’t be giving up until I die or make it. So, as long as I keep trying I will always have the chance to make it.

And you? Are you trying?...

REVIEW: Black Beauty, by Anna Sewell.

According to Wikipedia, Black Beauty was published on 1877 and it was the only novel written by her author, Anna Sewell, whom sadly passed away a few months after its publication but, at the same time, she was fortunate to see her novel being a success, because Black Beauty instantly became a best seller and it is now considered a classic of literature.

Now, leaving the Wikipedia article aside. From my point of view, Black Beauty is a beautiful novel that tells the story of the life of a black horse from his point of view, this book it’s usually described as an autobiography of a horse. Because it is narrated in first person, so it really feels like a peak inside the thoughts of a horse, (in case they are capable to think).

I imagine that the reasons why this books was so popular back in the late 1800s it's because it attacks and criticizes the abuse of the Horses as the only way of transportation. Remember that back then, the cars didn’t exist yet. So horses were the only way we humans had to move around besides our legs. And I am sure this book changed the perspective of a lot of people. And I hope, it brought an easier life to the poor horses back then.

One of the things I loved about the book is how subtle Anna teach good lessons of empathy, acceptance, love and religion to the readers. They are all over the book, but they are so subtle and so well distributed that it's pleasant to read so you might found yourself smiling to her beautiful lessons and agreeing with her. Although, if you just read for reading you might miss this beautiful hidden messages, because despite being simple pieces of knowledge, you have to be engaged with the book to fully get them.

Another thing I loved was the language and the length. Black Beauty was so easy to read that it made it very enjoyable, and it is not a long book, but it isn’t short neither, it's in between which is perfect, I like this 300ish pages type of books. Because if it had been too short, it might have had to left something out, but at the same time, I certainly wouldn’t like to find myself reading a 1.000 pages book of a horse life, and I love horses, but that would have been too long.

The only negative aspect, and I am not sure to called it negative, because it's something that cannot be helped as the book was perfect for its time, it’s that unfortunately, Black Beauty nowadays might seem to be out of style, because we don’t use horses anymore as a way of transportation, but if we take the Disney's movie Cars and mix it with Black Beauty, it would adapt perfectly to the present. Although cars are machines, lifeless objects without feelings, that can be used and abused by human kind without consideration, unlike horses. But that’s just a thought I had while reading the book: “so this is what a Uber driver’s car would feel if it writes a book, lol”.

So to wrap this up, I totally recommend Black Beauty to everyone, for me is a must read novel, because you might end up being a nicer and better person after reading if you catch the messages within the lines. And also is a book for all ages, so even kids can and should read it. So they grow to be more empathic an caring humans beings.

Dreams Come True: The Crazy story of how I got a ticket to Magic Kingdom.

Oh boy! I went to Magic Kingdom!!
I just came back from my 4 month long vacation in Orlando, Florida. And my thoughts and dreams before even getting there was “I wanna go to Disney” despite being aware that I didn’t have enough money to visit because we all know that the Land of the Mouse is expensive.

So, with that dream in mind I went to visit my sister from October to March, to spend the nephew and niece birthday with them (the nephew in October and the niece in February) along with the holidays and my birthday (January).

Now, during my long vacation I stayed at my sister’s place, in a complex called Windermere Cay, which made my dreams really painful, because it is located right behind Magic Kingdom, so every night I could hear and see the fireworks from the gym or the pool or anywhere in the complex. Because of its proximity with the park.

While I was there, twice or thrice a week I would came out of the apartment to see the fireworks and wish I was there, in Magic Kingdom, watching them from the castle. It was really poetic, actually, because I had only been to Magic Kingdom once before, so I would remember my first time there, wishing for a second time as the fireworks lit the dark night.

Crazy Hair day at Magic Kingdom 

So the months started to pass, and I kept dreaming, but I kept myself busy, because I got a pass to Seaworld and I explored other parts of Orlando and it’s surrounding areas. But always keeping my dream of going to Magic Kingdom in the back of my mind.

Nevertheless, ironic as life can sometimes be, by December a friend of mine was to preform in the holidays show of Epcot, so he invited me to the park to see him perform, which he did amazingly, so I had the chance to visit Epcot for the first time, and despite I enjoy it a lot and I got a Daruma Doll in Japan (which I hope to talk more in the future), I still felt like.... “Epcot is okay but it is not Magic Kingdom, I wanna go to Magic Kingdom”.

Christmas time arrived, then mi birthday and around late January another friend brought to the table an opportunity to visit Animal Kingdom, so he took me to there, and that’s how I visited that park for the first time. But at the end of the day, I had the same bittersweet flavor in my mouth and thoughts... “Animal Kingdom is fun but it is not Magic Kingdom, I wanna go to Magic Kingdom!”.

February arrived, and my day to departure started to come closer, so I started to wish harder to go Magic Kingdom every time I saw the fireworks from my sister’s place.

Cinderella Castle 

And then in a blink of a eye, March was there, my departure from Orlando due to March the 4th,  it was March the 2nd and I still hadn’t gone to Magic Kingdom, but I am strong believer, so I kept on dreaming, because I’m a Disney fan, so I do believe in the secret, Cinderella, and all that crap that dreams come true if we really wish for them and focus our actions towards their realization.

And on that train of thought I pinpointed my flaw! I was just dreaming about going to Magic Kingdom, but I really wasn’t doing anything to make that dream come true, so on March the 2nd, late at night, I started to update all my social media, asking for someone that could help me get a ticket or pass me to Magic Kingdom in exchange of a Tarot Reading.

March the 3rd arrived. I was devastated, because I was leaving the next day and I hadn’t fulfilled my dream of going to Magic Kingdom, so I made plans for going to Bush Gardens instead with a friend. But then, around 11 am, when I was about to leave for going to the park, out of nowhere, I got a notification on my phone...

“I can give you a ticket to Magic Kingdom for a Tarot Reading”

And I am sure you can imagine the rest of the story.... I graduated with honors as the worst friend in the world, because I immediately cancelled the plans to go Bush Gardens with my friend for obvious reasons, and I went on my own to Magic Kingdom, the day before my departure, after wishing going there for 4 months straight, with the Corona Virus around and all my family calling me crazy for going to such a populated place.

And guess what? I didn’t care if I caught the Corona Virus while in the park, because my dream came true and I enjoyed all the lines, all the people and specially the firework show at the castle in the end. The one I saw so many times from afar and I was able to see on my last day in Orlando from the exact spot where I wanted to see it since my arrival.

I literally cried during the whole show. Moved by all the events and how dreams really do come true. And all because I never stop dreaming, I never stop believing that my dream could come true and most importantly, because I put a little, simple action towards it.

Or probably I was just Lucky.
