Who Wants to Live Forever?
Harry Potter the other day, and Twilight today – I’m a geek, I know (though, in my defence - Carlisle/Esme and Jasper/Alice are far more interesting in my opinion than I’m-eternally-damned-even-though-I’m-trying-to-be-good-Edward/I’m-not-worth-the-love-of-my-life-Bella). It might have something to do with my age - I just had my 27th birthday.
I got asked by a few of my friends what I thought about this, and all I could think of was that I’m rather 27 than 17 again, or 17 forever, like in the Twilight Saga…. imagine being an adolescent forever… so depressing! I like my present age… so, speaking of Twilight, this is what I might have looked like as a “vegetarian” vampire, frozen as an eternal 26-year old. The picture was taken about a month ago - I photoshoped the colour of my eyes (my first time photoshopping, ever), but I am really that pale, and was so long before the Cullens made it interesting (as I’ve said before, the sun gives me headaches, so I usually stay in the shadows if I can). The eyes look less yellow on the blog though... wonder why that is?Even though I’m enjoying it, I wouldn’t like to stay this age forever. Aging is a natural part of life, and an educating experience I don’t want to miss, if I can avoid it. So I think I’d prefer my blue eyes with coming old age and death to vampire-gold eyes with eternal youth in this all but perfect world. My eternal life is there, but it lies beyond the grave in a better world. After all, I believe in resurrection :) Oh, and New Moon is released on DVD here in at the end of the week - yay! Sweden
