The Secret Garden!

When I was in 11th grade, I had to read a book for my literature class. And after reading the book, the teacher asked the class to do a book report project. We could either choose to make an art about the theme of the book we read, or wrtite a short story or an essay, or whatever creative thing that it occured to us. I went to picked up a book in my school’s library, and I came across “The Secret Garden” book by Frances Hodgson Brunette, the librarian told me it was a beautiful book and that I should definetely read it. The book was a children’s book, yet, I must have being 17 or 18, and I still loved it very much. It was easy to read, and at the same time, abundantly magical. I remember I was reading the book during lunch time, and a senior student came to me and commentted that the book was really good, but it was for babies. Anyway, after I finished the book, I wonder what kind of project would be good to do, and I thought why not a poem. So, here’s the poem, that I wrote by the inspiration of a beautiful book I read in eleven grade.

I have being going back and ford to the bookstore, mainly because the new book of John Green came out last week, but unfortunately, it is not coming to Korea, so until I get the goddamn book, I will keep going to the bookstore, even though is taking a lot of my time and money, why me?

One casual morning, while drinking my tea, and getting ready for school, I left the tv on to watch the first episode of the new season of Bob’s Burger, and it was epic in how they decided to developed the episode, and I don’t feel like spoiling anything, so I recommended to watch it. Anywho, it was only the first episode, and had to wait for the upcoming week to watch the next episode of Bob’s Burger. But, I wanted to keep watching more animations, because sometimes I feel like a kid, and animations keep that inner childness in me. Anyway, while randomly searching on the web, I stumbled across an interesting animation titled, Window Horses. The first thing that caught my attention for me to watch the film, was by the words chosen for the title. The title sound like very poetic and aesthetic combination of words, even though, later while watching the film, it explain that it is about poetry.

When I began to read the manga My Lesbian Experience with Loneliness, I thought it would be about a woman on a journey to discovered that she was a lesbian, yet, (SPOILER ALERT!) the lesbian just came at the end, and perhaps I should say I didn’t saw this manga as a lesbian story, it was more about this raw and realistic side of what a depressed person has to go through. Coincidentally, I finished reading the manga the day it was World Mental Health Day, shall we talk about this issue, plus, with the help of this manga?

One of my favorite food, in this entire world, is the chimichanga. I tried chimichangas once, and that was enough for me to fell in love with it. I would do anything to go back to Guatemala, and go to the restaurant 5 Elementos, and have that vegetarian chimichanga for one more time, like for real! If you don’t know what chimichangas are, just get out! Chimichangas are like the greatest thing that has ever existed, plus, Deadpool’s favorite foods are the chimichangas; this is the only reason that I love Marvels.

Well, one day I had came up with a great idea, “why not make my own chimichanga?” So I did it! And here is the process of how I achieved a legit, but not as legit as 5 Elementos’ chimichanga.
