Do you know what minisaga is? Minisaga is basically very short story which consists exactly of 50 words. That is not many words, is it? Imagine that you need to write a story and that you have to use exactly 50 words, not 49 neither 51, but exactly 50. That kind of makes it harder. I do admire people who are able to sit down and just write a story like that. When I’m writing some stuff I do a lot of thinking first and I also rewrite most of the stuff several times until I’m satisfied with the content.
Well why I’m bringing up something like minisagas right now? Some time ago when I was attending English lessons we got an assignment to write a minisaga about some movie that we’ve seen. And I happened to find what I wrote and I just thought why not to share it. So here is my minisaga:
On its way home spaceship Nostromo intercepted a distress signal. They found a ship full of eggs. Facehugger attacked and alien was born. Crew members were killed one after another. Just Ripley survived. She opened an airlock and alien was sucked out to Space. Finally she was safe. Was she?
There are times when you just want to do something out of ordinary, not because you need to or should do it, but just because you want. These little things are what is important. Because if you don’t do stuff that you want to do, your life will get quite boring.
Well in my case I wanted to buy something. For a quite some time now, I was thinking about buying a katana sword. So I did it, I bought katana. At first I was thinking should I really do it? Should I spent all that money on sword? I’ve never practiced Kendo or learned how to handle sword, so should I buy a sword only to put it on display? But then it hit me, why the hell I shouldn’t. What is important is that I made one of my dreams come true. And that is what counts.
I’d attach some photos, but I’ve got only mobile phone camera so the quality would be rather questionable.
And the moral of this story. Don’t think too much, there are times when you just need to do. Making our dreams come true is important part of our live, everyone has some dreams. Some may be more difficult to achive than other, but what makes us go forward are those little things that make us happy.
Hello everyone, as you have probably noticed the page is completely different from before. And when I say completely I mean it. After several (well two) years of using my own system I’ve moved to WordPress. Well I haven’t change the hosting only engine which is running this site.
With a change to the WordPress also came a massive swipe of all past articles that I wrote. The reason why I didn’t even try to keep them was because their information value was rather questionable. I’ve also decided to write this blog in English so keeping old stuff which was written in Czech would not be exactly beneficiary.
I’d like to add at least one new article per week and to be honest I’m still not sure whether they will be better that the ones that I got rid of. But let’s hope for the best.
