Orpheus - the greatest musician that ever lived. Do you know his story?
So, Orpheus loved one thing more than music and that was Eurydice, the most beautiful girl that ever lived. But she died. She was poisoned. And Orpheus could not live without her. So he went down to Hades to bring her back. The ruler of Hades agreed, but there was a catch. If he turned back to look at her face she'd be gone forever. Just before he got to the surface he heard this rock crash behind him, so he turned back to see if she was all right. And that was it. The gates to the underworld slammed shut. She was gone forever. And he spent the rest of his life wandering the Earth alone.
.... an interesting story...

lately, I have a perfectly normal existence: working, university, art (:S) and concerts. However, I'm really getting sick of how much time I'm spending at the uni and I wonder whether I shouldn't just ignore everything :)
So the movie I watched today was " Don't Laugh At My Romance"but I got mad cuz it's always difficult for me to download the right subtitles and to make them appear on the screen. Ugh...
aand.. I started reading the book "The death of Ivan Ilyich"by Lev Nikolayevich Tolstoy - it's really great. I'm still at the beginning so can't tell you a lot... BUT I guess next week I'll be able to finish it ;] In fact I've started this book cuz I'm just trying not to think of this person..., you know... distracting myself with other distractions. But it's difficult and I'm supposed to pretend I'm not feeling what I'm feeling :/
