- In nineteen minutes, you can mow the front lawn, color your hair, watch a third of a hockey game. In nineteen minutes, you can bake scones or get a tooth filled by a dentist; you can fold laundry for a family of five....In nineteen minutes, you can stop the world, or you can just jump off it. In nineteen minutes, you can get revenge.
Sterling is a small, ordinary New Hampshire town where nothing ever happens -- until the day its complacency is shattered by a shocking act of violence. In the aftermath, the town’s residents must not only seek justice in order to begin healing but also come to terms with the role they played in the tragedy. For them, the lines between truth and fiction, right and wrong, insider and outsider have been obscured forever. Josie Cormier, the teenage daughter of the judge sitting on the case, could be the state’s best witness, but she can’t remember what happened in front of her own eyes. And as the trial progresses, fault lines between the high school and the adult community begin to show, destroying the closest of friendships and families.
Nineteen Minutes is New York Times bestselling author Jodi Picoult’s most raw, honest, and important novel yet. Told with the straightforward style for which she has become known, it asks simple questions that have no easy answers: Can your own child become a mystery to you? What does it mean to be different in our society? Is it ever okay for a victim to strike back? And who -- if anyone -- has the right to judge someone else?
‧If you spent your life concentrating on what everyone else thought of you, would you forget who you really were? What if the face you showed the world turned out to be a mask…..with nothing beneath it?

the idea of "He's Just Not That Into You" is that if a guy wants to call you, he will. If he likes you, he will make the effort. And if he doesn't, that means he's not interested. "If you don't know what's going on, nothing's going on." And nothing was.
Girls always try to figure out every sign from boys. Whats that means? Will he call me? What if he just FORGET give me a call? Then we become freak, hold mobile all day long, waiting for his text and call.
We just can’t accept that he’s just not that into you.
my girlfriends is crush on a boy last summer, they worked for few months and was a little bit hanky-panky for a while. He is charming and gentle. I met him and went out once, after we leave United States, they still keep in touch about a year.
Most of time she contacts actively, he seldom reply in no time, maybe two or three days later even longer. At first a couple of months we still try to figure out what’s going on, we try to analyze every signs even vamp up some excuse for him because we still believe that he is a good man, he supposed has some reason that cause the situation. Maybe he is not ready to have a long distance relationship, maybe he is too busy for school life and internship. Maybe he just seldom use internet so reply the e-mail very slow. As time goes on, I lose patience and confidence on him. I start to doubt maybe he’s just not that into her. But I cannot bear to tell her ,that’s what we can do just wait and see. Till this summer I moved to London, she back to United States for internship for a year, we thought it is on rare occasions! And finally they can meet again! It should be very romantic and excited. She planned to back to the city where he live, and planned to take a trip for a week. Every thing sounds like perfect and romantic (basically, he mention about “ I wannna marry you” on the phone , so it seems like there must going to happened something amazing)
Monday morning, she checked the mobile while waiting the boarding, she received a text form his number, it was his little brother and told her he was on a traffic accident and in the ER now. Its unbelievable and too dramatic. When she call me and cried out loud on the phone I just cant believe what I heard. Few hours later, she arrived the city and paged the taxi to hostel where she booked in case any accident.
Till midnight she still cant find him, (well, he just text her he still alive , then no more, and never mention about catch up or anything else) then he just disappeared.
I totally can realize her disappointed and anxious. I worried about him all day too. I was very scared , scared he will die and how do I give her comfort? Moreover I planned to buy the ticket just fly to U.S. till now we still cant find him. He never answer the call even I try to contact with his brother still in vain.
She was so sad and just wanders in the streets , and if he still not show up , she is afraid has to change the ticket.

"My Sister's Keeper", based on the bestselling novel by Jodi Picoult , is a heart wrenching tear jerker that will both stab and touch your heart.I read this novel few years ago, then I totally became a huge fan of Jodi Picoult, otherwise, my favorite book is “Nineteen Minutes”, now im reading “Change of heart”. when I knew this novel is filmed and in theaters this summer i was so excited .
If all we are parent's loves crystallization or the products made from alcoloh or impulsive or expected. Anna is not . If her sisiter didn't get sick then she supposed not give birth on this world.She was born by assisted productive technology to safe her sister's life. By age thirteen, she has undergone countless surgeries, transfusions, and shots so that her older sister, Kate, can somehow fight the leukemia that has plagued her since childhood. The product of preimplantation genetic diagnosis, Anna was conceived as a bone marrow match for Kate - a life and a role that she has never questioned… until now. Like most teenagers, Anna is beginning to question who she truly is. But unlike most teenagers, she has always been defined in terms of her sister - and so Anna makes a decision that for most would be unthinkable… a decision that will tear her family apart and have perhaps fatal consequences for the sister she loves. My Sister's Keeper examines what it means to be a good parent, a good sister, a good person. Is it morally correct to do whatever it takes to save a child's life… even if that means infringing upon the rights of another? Is it worth trying to discover who you really are, if that quest makes you like yourself less?
One of a plot let me very impressive is when Anna yell at her mother; " I’m important too, Mom. I’m important too! ". I can't stop crying and I could hardly imagine the situation if i were Anna. Mom stands up for the whole family, stands up for Kate.But the only question is who stands up for Anna?
In this story, author tried to in every one's shoes, like when dad Brain watches Anna had dinner with his colleagues,he stared at his little girl and wondered how it got from there to here,When did she start wanting to make her own decisions? Brian says to Sara, "What if she doesn't want to do it?" For Sara that is not an answer. she is painfully human as a mother outraged by the unfairness of life. She will not let go, even if costs her the love of one daughter.
Suffering Kate confesses to Anna, "I'm sorry I let them hurt you… I was supposed to protect you." Vassilleva as Kate is amazing in scene with Diaz, as she tells her Mom, "It's okay." Life goes on. Death is death. And you gotta let go. Nick Cassavetes's "My Sister's Keeper" is beautiful and moving in its simplicity as the story celebrates life, family, and power of love.

I have learned German since high school but I have to admit, up till now I have never been a big fan of German movies in general. As I remembered, only I have seen are Jenseits der Stille (Beyond Silence,Directed by Caroline Link ) ,Run Lola Run(written and directed by Tom Tykwer), Walk on water (Basically its supposed a Israel film directed by Eytan Fox , one of chief actor is a German boy Knut Berger ) But I changed my mind after watching Keinohrhasen. I simply loved it
The chemistry between Til and Nora is - surprisingly - just great, the story is classic, simple, even a little bit comical but so beautiful and I can't remember the last time I laughed so hard in any movie.
To my amazement, the writer-director-star Til Schweiger brought his REAL four children into this film. Especially the little girl Emma Schweiger ( acted Cheyenne-Blue) was so stunning. she is my favorite actor in this film,
When yellow-press reporter Ludo gets into trouble, he gets sentenced to 300 hours of social work in a nursery run by Anna, a long-forgotten schoolmate. She has never forgotten how he used to make fun of her. Now it’s time for her to turn the tables on Ludo - though it would be easier if she didn’t fall in love with him...

its snowing everywhere! and its snowing in New York now.
i saw Noah's status on FB he shoveled snow hardly and it looks bloody freezing there.Listen to the weather forecasts on the radio or TV , there are so many snow storms in U.S.
Ever year , people die when blizzards hit certain parts of the country . till now, about 17 or more American die by snow storm .
anyway, i think most of friends are safe. and its going to Christmas holidays, Dave is flying to New Jersey with his family. Vivien is going to Finlad for her internship around six months, im so envy hee cuz she can visit Santa's hometown. Cheryl just finish the exchange semester and going to San Francisco with her aunti. my boo Claire is going to Orlando to see him next week. Im a little nervous and worry about her but i wish that every things gonna be ok . Deng is in UK with her fiance. Chi jut married and i guess maybe she will move to Germany or still live in Lonod for rest of her life.
Its hard to describe why i feel so empty and upset. or i just cant stop thinking about him. Few months ago we were planned to stay at Liverpool or visit Scoltland for my winter vacation. but its totally in vain cuz we broke up. I think people suck at relationships is because they analyze everything too much, or I just feel ashame to admit I want to enjoy my youth first then later on look for my so called "soul mate" or I do not play around but I just know he is not the one. I was so sorry to hurt him but at least i dont need to pretent I love him anymore. I guess I always out of control during living abroad or travel , I remember that I met two French boys when I was in Barcelona, we drank Whisky mixed coke, cheesse with bread , play french trick and he use pool English to invite me go to his bed. he said that " Life is short, just relax and enjoy that." well bascilly i refused him , however I just wonder what kind of lifestyle or crazy green day is waht I want or what i need.
Winter is a lonely season and its snowing in my deep herat. I have no mood to celebrate the Christmas' Eve . But i just thinking where I can go , where I can escape.
I just feel that another day has gone ,I'm still all alone,and I still cant find somewhere I belong...

Some people they are just very lucky, they could exactly knows that what they want or what they need. Some people they work hard but in vain , some got lucky.Some people can find the one easily or love some one madly but I have no idea why I just cant. Or for love, I still too silly and unpractical. I am a loser.Today I just saw Mel’s blog, she is a lovely American girl, visited Taiwan alone to learning Chinese. What a brave girl! When she first came here she could barely speak any Chinese, but she wasn't that scared though she was determined to speak Chinese.
I've been to Spain this summer,i tried to practice my Spanish just same as her purpose. well , in fact I was totally freaked out, it was too diffenent from United Kindom and I'm not ready to learn new culture, new language. Mel sure did inspire me a lot in many ways.
Now she plans on living in Taiwan for the rest of her life.its so determined and clearly. I feel so happy to her and a little bit envy her, I guess wandering is congenial to my nature. i wandering everywhere even in my hometown. I always hope that i can find somewhere I belong.The first time I get lost in the nothingness inside of me was i just back form New York, I spent around 1 years to cure the wound. Life is struggle, but don't live it for anyone else but you. I know i'm not the only person with these things in mind,and i guess im going to keep wandering, the next journey im planing to visit Italy.
I start a new space to write something, just like Chester's lyric said: "i wanna heal. i wanna feel like i'm close to something real, i wanna find something i've wanted all along.' For me, writing is kind of treatment to cure,
Before i forget, i will try my best to record everything i want and enjoy every single day.

這是個漂亮的措辭。Bel far niente是「無所事事之美」的意思。聽我道來──傳統來說，義大利人自古以來一直存在著勤奮工作的人，尤其是那些長期受苦的勞動者，即所謂braccianti。但即使在艱苦勞動的背景下，「無所事事」始終是大家抱持的一個義大利夢想。無所事事的美好是你全部工作的目標，使你倍受祝賀的最後成果。你越是閒暇舒適地無所事事，你的生活成就越高。你也不見得要有錢才能體驗。
