São João night

It was cold and windy, though summer was should have already come. Nonetheless, the sky was clear. It made my night.
Lights of lanterns and stars. Also, small fireworks from time to time. I was surprised. It looked like magic, a night taken out of fairytales.
According to tradition, laterns are lit to fill up the sun. As after solstice, the days begin to shorten, laterns and sent out flying to the sun.
It really wasn't that much of a big deal, but I love gazing at the sky. And this year, at São João, the night sky was the best of my life.

daily babble

I'm so seriously screwed for my next exam, which is tomorrow. Just yesterday, I found out that I had a lot more to know, more than half. I get so frustrated when I actually work hard and the result is the same as if I did nothing. I can't even express how angry I was. I'm so pissed at myself. I really should work as hard as my friends. Actually I never really fought for anything like that's what I really want, and nothing else would do. I always just accepted things like they are. Guess I'm not much of a revolution girl.
Moving on, by chance, I heard the song that made me watch anime again after half dozen years. Still think it's one of the most amazing songs I've ever heard. Never felt so touched by a song it totally creeps me out.
I'm starting to feel a bit better as things are starting to sink in. So, maybe until tomorrow, I'll get to know everything that's important. As I heard someone say, Prepare for the worst, Hope for the best.
