  1. Hi Anna,

    My name is Marie, I'm 19 years old and... I happen to be French (surprised, huh ? ). So please, forgive me if my english is... You know... Sounding french.

    Ok so....You might be wondering why I'm posting this comment. Or how I actually found your blog in the first place. All I can say is, prepare yourself. This is weird.

    So you know how people always say that life is made of coincidences, that life "is like a box of chocolate" or whatever... I found your blog perchance. Like... I really wasn't expecting it. It happened like that : I was on livejournal, minding my own business, when I found the icon "I'm a pathetic unicorn". It caught my attention because I thought it was funny and I wanted to know if it was some kind of quote from a movie, a TV show, a book or something. So I actually googled it. And google led me to your blog. The pathetic unicorn.

    And... Yeah, I kind of (totally) read it. (I didn't read it all, there're still some articles I haven't read yet since I dicovered your blog around midnight and.... Kind of had an exam the next day. But reading your blog was kind of... Like prozac to me I guess. Helped me get rid of my stress.)

    I don't know why I read it ( I mean, your blog didn't answer my question about the unicorn quote). Maybe I was bored. Or maybe I was just curious...... No, who am I fooling ? I totally read it because...You know, it's like finding someone's diary. You can choose to let it go, or to open it. Well... Now you know that I'm the kind of person that would actually read it, cause I'm a pathetic (unicorn) girl , I guess (?).


    So what I actually wanted to say - cause yeah, this comment is actually leading somewhere, unbelievable right ? - is that I really enjoyed reading your blog ! I hope I do not offend you when I say that, because there are no many comments on your blog so I didn't know if I was allowed to post anything or if you would be like "who the hell does she think she is to invade mypersonal space". But I doubt that. I mean, reading your blog, I feel like I know you a little bit. I mean, you don't seem to be an evil person. Or you're hiding it very well. You rather seem like a funny nice open-minded girl.

    Your stories about the guys you met (I mean, most of all : the english soldier !!!! So sweet ! ), your work at disneyland, they made my day. It was so nice to read you and your adventures.I mean, when I read it, I was sooo nervous about my stupid exam that I hadn't been sleeping or eating for several days. And then it just gave me faith I guess. Well not faith like I believe in God now or anything, but maybe some confidence. Confidence that the world is not just about exams and college and succeeding. That there is more to life.That there is a lit of people dealing with lots of things. That I am not alone. & that one little stupid exam is not going to change my life forever...

    So thank you Anna ! Thanks for keeping your blog updated ! I'm really looking forward to reading one of your messages again !



  2. Hi Marie,

    Thank you so much! I'm glad you found this in a roundabout way. You made my day! I hope your exam went well. Also, the reason I have this is for people to read, even if I don't publicize it at all. I'm glad you like reading some of it, I like writing it.

    The 'Pathetic Unicorn' thing is from Meg Cabot's 10th Princess Diaries book. The main character keeps a diary and at one point writes "I know. I'm pathetic. A pathetic unicorn" when faced with boy problems.

    Hope all's well, thanks again for the lovely comment! Your English is much better than my French.

  3. Hi Anna !

    I wasn't expecting an answer that quickly! Thanks for taking the time to read my loooonnnnng comment. And thank you for finally answering my question about the unicorn thing. Not that it was killing me not to know but still.

    My exam went well I guess, thanks to you, in a way. I study law in Paris, so I have so many things to learn every time I have to take an exam. And the more I study , the more I think that.... This is not really what I want to do. (I have a quite annoying tendancy to tell my life hm).

    Well, thank you so much for your answer. I hope you're ok too and that you will be able to study Pop Culture & American Musical/Honors.



    PS : I bet your french is not that bad.
