[EDIT]In my absolute lack of brain and consideration, I've simply left out last night the very important fact that it was lilith_lilium who convinced me that no, this fic wasn't crap and yes, it could be fixed. After whining at poor her and making her read it through, it is more than fair that I dedicate it to her, in the very least[/EDIT]
I'm back... relatively. I have computer access more regularly now, but given that by strange twists of fate I did make it into college after all I'll be spending less time online, I think.
Classes won't start until March, though, so I'm on vacations at last!!!!
Here's what happened and what I've learned: firstly, I studied hard but not as hard as I could have, and applied for 3 colleges. I entered one but missed the subscribing day, but it was the one I wanted less. I did not enter any of the other two and got very, very sad and frustrated etc. Then, when I paid a visit to know if I could try to apply again in June for the one I'd passed, a lady told me that there were vacant places in some courses and that I could try to use my performance in the exams to try and enter, which I did. I can't say the name of the course in English, but it's related to comunication and multimedia so I think I'll be enjoying it immensely.
What did I learn? At times, it seems something WILL happen, but it doesn't. And, other times, it seems all will go wrong, but it ends up ok. Not the most ellegant way to put it, but I do hope I made my point. Life is not what you expect it to be, but the important thing is to try hard, and keep your head up and continue trying in spite of the results. Things come both as a result of hard labour and the fine talent of keeping an eye open for opportunities that one might miss if one's head is lowered in self-pity for too long. As the wonderful menel
has pointed out, self-pitying is healthy as long as it's not forever - banishing your feelings and your compassion towards yourself won't do, either. So, feel sad when things don't work out, but do try to keep your chin high so as not to miss something life might throw your way.
... I'm not too fond of giving out advice like this, on my LJ. I feel arrogant, because I firmly believe that someone hardly knows what's better for another person. But I think that what I went through can help other people, should they ever find themselves in similar situations, that's why I expanded on it a bit.
I've watched Dogville
today. As soon as I digest it, I'll write a review. For now, just know that it's shocking, revolting, intriguing, ironic, sadistic, lovely, amusing, unnerving, absurd and incredibly real all in one. Lars Von Trier, I know not whether to worship you for making me think or hate you for the bad dreams your latest film is sure to give me.
At last, the ficlet! It's not dramatic, nor is it thoughtful, or incredibly romantic. I fail to classify it. It's just some thoughts and feelings of Boromir, and a lot of longing. Here's hope you'll like it.
Title: Boromir Wished
Summary: At Rivendell, Boromir misses his brother so.
