Amanda never considered herself as a beautiful woman, but the men who saw her would not agree on that. She has the kind of beauty that makes a person wonder how imperfect features can make such a pleasing combination. The raw green color of her eyes makes an alluring contrast with her slightly tanned skin and dark wavy hair. Amanda’s appearance showed a mixture of her blending ancestors, her black hair gave her the Mediterranean identity, with her mother’s background being from the Middle East, and her delicate aristocratic facial features gave her a big resemblance to her French grandmother from her father’s side.
Amanda has recently graduated from college with an archeology degree, but to this day still wonders why she decided to go into such an uninteresting major ignoring her artistic side that she is actually passionate about. Working as a waitress in the close by brasserie, she felt like she is wasting her life but couldn’t do anything about it because not many other opportunities on knocking on her door. At least she had her close childhood friend Brian to help her get through her tough days.
Brain is the average guy next door, well build, good looking, and a very approachable look that suits his outgoing personality. Growing up as an only child and being raised at his grandparent’s house, he managed to become a very independent young man, that some might even consider him stubborn. Brian and Amanda grew up in the same neighborhood, went to the same high school for 8 years, and every step along the line seemed to make them even closer, which explains their strong bond. Brian is a school dropout, but with the help of his social skills managed to become a successful host in the same brasserie where Amanda works. This way, they manage to spend more time together not only during their free time but also at work.
Sitting with Brian on a summer afternoon in the park, Amanda looked effortlessly perfect. The flashy yellow shirt, the John Lennon round sunglasses and the beautiful Parisian summer sunshine resting on her soft skin made her look like a chef-d’oeuvre of a famous painter or photographer. That’s when Brian decided to take the cover of his lens off and start snapping as many pictures of this masterpiece as possible.
This is the introduction that I thought I would be able to use for the novel that I always dreamed of writing, but let’s be honest; such a story would not attract any readers. It didn’t even attract the writer!
This is why I decided instead to start writing little stories about myself in a blog , some of them will be based on real facts, and others will be based on a completely fictional imagination, who knows, I might even steal other people’s stories and use them as my own. Oh, and I hope by the end of those endless stories that I plan to write, that I would be able to reach a conclusion or like some sort of a life goal, because at this point of life, I am a 24 year old unemployed male with a lot of free time on my hand and a wild imagination.
