A Universe Trapped in a Labyrinth

This is my boring and interesting and teenager life spanning from age 15 to 18 (May 2015-August 2018)
Within you'll find many re-inventions of myself, boy trouble, school trouble and life trouble. (Plus interesting bits I thought I would include as well).
Do you dare to enter the maze?

31. Bucket List pt I: Letters I would like to receive

 

Date: Saturday 13th June 2015 18:15

Entry: 33/?

Subject: Bucket List pt I: Letters I would like to receive.

 

When I was little I used to write letters to the dead.

I will let you reflect on that for a while.

But it’s true I used to write stories and letters for the long gone loved ones whom I had never met or missed terribly at that young age. My small brain would leave the letter with an offering if you will – a flower or biscuit ect – and it was a wonder when in the morning the offering would be gone a pile of petals or crumbs the only sign of it being there. I think I thank my parents for moving them on some occasion to keep my hopes up. Sometimes I uptake that skill again, writing letters I will never send to those who will never read their words but its calming I guess.

Anyway let’s get away from that sombre subject; letters are important to me (more important than a text, email or phone call) and here is a list of all the people I want to receive a letter from and why.

J.K Rowling

As you would have guessed the author of Harry Potter is very important for me to receive words from because of her inspirational aspect of story and life. However, there is also another reason, one which is that she is a person which can motivate me not to give up.

Did you know that J.K. Rowling had just gotten a divorce, was on government aid, and could barely afford to feed her baby in 1994, just three years before Harry Potter and The Philosopher’s Stone, was published? When she was shopping it out, she was so poor she couldn’t afford a computer or even the cost of photocopying the 90,000-word novel, so she manually typed out each version to send to publishers. It was rejected dozens of times until finally Bloomsbury gave it a second chance after the CEO’s eight year-old daughter fell in love with it.

 

Philip Pullman

Philip Pullman in the author of His Dark Materials trilogy which was the first ever series of books that got me firmly hooked into my love of reading. When I was primary the school Library only ever offered the first book and I became outraged after reading and loving it, that my friend let me bower his copy of the second book and I eventually bought the last book. The trilogy is the only series besides the beloved Harry Potter and Narnia chronicles that I have reread ever before. In the words of the author himself As a passionate believer in the democracy of reading, I don't think it's the task of the author of a book to tell the reader what it means.

The meaning of a story emerges in the meeting between the words on the page and the thoughts in the reader's mind. So when people ask me what I meant by this story, or what was the message I was trying to convey in that one, I have to explain that I'm not going to explain.

Anyway, I'm not in the message business; I'm in the “Once upon a time” business.”

 

3.      Helen Bonham Carter

Because who wouldn’t want that dose of crazy and inspirational weirdness in their lives.

4.      Imagine dragons as a collective

Imagine dragons is my favourite band even with their video for radioactive sparking a story idea that hopefully I will develop eventually.

5.      Freddie Mercury (although he is unfortunately no longer with us)

I grew up to the tune of Queen and my Christmas traditional song was Bohemian Rhapsody instead of the normal seasonal renditions. It would be an absolute honor to receive a letter from him.

6.      Steve Jobs (although he is also dead)

 “If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle”

Inventor of the iPhone, Macbook, iPad and iPod. Steve Jobs have revolutionized the way we communicate today through a burning passion for technology, design and business. Steve Jobs dropped out of college after attending for 6 months and returned Coke bottles in order to afford his own food. Before he died he was the founder of Pixar Animation, Next Computer and Apple Computers – 3 of the major companies in the world. He loved what he did and he was proud of the products he produced. I admire him for the innovations he continuously came up with and also I’m inspired because he remained true to himself. When he presented the new products for Apple he would wear his knickers and a comfortable sweater. No pretentious bull**** but rather honesty and integrity in all he did.

7.      Emma Watson

Because who wouldn’t want a letter from the amazing childhood inspiration Emma Watson? Who will also be portraying Belle in my favourite Disney film and story Beauty and the Beast – I just adore here.

8.      Dylan O’Brien

I need that level of sarcasm, jokes, laughter and awesome in my life.
