Hi, I'm SimplyMerri or Adva Dror (my official pen name) and I'm 20 years old from Israel.
I've been writing my story Waking Up and it's sequal New Directions since August 2012, but as you can probably tell, I'm on a HIATUS.
I've been thinking over the last few months that writing sure have made me grow a lot and gave me the confidence I was lacking in my own personal life.
As time flew by, I've realized that while I enjoyed day dreaming about how things should have happened and making up characters and buliding up a brand new ficational world, I stayed pretty much the same.
As you can probably guess by now, I was never really satisfied with the way my life were, which led me to write my own version of my life, my rules, my way.
But somehow, my life just didn't make the same progress that I had planned and I was forced to deal with things that I never would've thought would happen.
And that was it. That was the moment that I decided not to think how wonderful it would be if things were different and I could have been that person I always thought I should be. It was the moment that I made the most important decision of my life- to actually live it. To become that person. To become me.
So, I moved back to my parents' house (not the easiest thing to do after living for two whole years on your own), lost almost 20 pounds (still have more to lose, but that's pretty damn AWESOME), got a haircut, bought new clothes and started doing things that were meant to make MY life better- I work out, I dance a lot, I meet up with my friends (whom I don't have a lot of chances to see), I cook (yeah, that's a shock), I study in order to make my English better and I think 24/7 on how to make me happier.
That's why I haven't really been writing my story- I wanted to finally live it.
Don't get me wrong, it still sucks to know that I still haven't finised my story, but I will finish it someday, when I feel that my life is stable enough and I'll be ready to think about 'what if...' all over again.
So this is it. I hope I didn't dissappoint you that much. While I can't promise you that I'll be back so soon but I will tell you once I'm back (well, if you want to. Just leave me a message or a review and I'll be sure to remember you and let you know what's up).
So, forever yours, Adva.
