2012 in review

Hello everyone!

We can’t believe our blog has reached its first anniversary a few months ago and now we’re finally celebrating the new year. We hope 2013 will bring at least as many beautiful activities and memories as 2012. Although all of us are in our senior year in high-school, this year has brought so many new projects and rewarding activities. We’re more than happy to share all our achievements with you, our readers and our friends. We hope 2013 will help us become even more close to you and more dedicated to the blog and all its incredible implications. We can’t even begin to express how happy we are for all the support you have shown us and we set as our goal never to disappoint you, our faithful readers! May your year be incredible and full of rewards!

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

4,329 films were submitted to the 2012 Cannes Film Festival. This blog had 57,000 views in 2012. If each view were a film, this blog would power 13 Film Festivals

Back in Business

We told you we’d be back and I’m really excited to tell you that we are back big time! We have some very exciting news to share with you in the next days so stay tuned!

Ok, to begin with, since June our partnership with Special Olympics extended to our high school too, and we’ve been the liaison between the two. With the occasion of Kira Kegel’s visit, the Special Olympics Europe/Eurasia representive, and another secret project that is yet to be revealed, our school hosted a very interesting event.

The six of us made a presentation in order to show the progress of our blog and project in connection to Special Olympics. Before I post the many photos that we took, I would like to thank, once again, the Special Olympics team for supporting us and helping us fulfill our dreams. We would have never gone so far without their help, if they hadn’t believed in us all this time.

Here’s a gallery with all the photos we took, our teammate Alex presenting three of the Special Olympics athletes, Emilia, the Special Olympics coordinator and Kira Kegel, our guest. We hope you enjoy them! Please feel free to leave your feedback in the comment form below.

Cheers!

 

Be Right Back!

Hello everyone! As we’ve been telling you for a while, this blog started out as a project; to be more precise: an international competition. The time has come, after four months, to register our link on the competition’s website. In fact today was the last day we could register it. Unfortunately, we won’t be able to post anything on the actual website from today until late June because it will be under examination, and it’s against the rules to add anything.

However, what we wanted to tell you was that we’re not leaving anywhere, and we’re definitely not ending this! Please be patient until June and don’t forget to check the site every once in a while to see when we’ll start posting again. We’ll surely have everything we did in the meantime prepared, just waiting to be turned into juicy posts! 

In the meantime please consider our FACEBOOK PAGE to be a temporary blog, where we’ll post pictures, news and ideas about present and future collaborations. 

                                       SEE YOU IN JUNE!      We’ll be right back!

 

The Intouchables

Continuing with the film reviews, today I want to recommend to you a movie that I particularly loved. It is long since a movie was able to touch me so, Eric Toledano and Olivier Nakache have indeed done an amazing job.

Access http://www.imdb.com and you’ll see that this movie has a very good rating in comparison to many others. Well “Stop preaching and start talking about it” you might say, so I’ll get right to it. It’s a story about an aristocrat that becomes paraplegic after a paragliding accident and is obliged to hire an assistant. Chance makes him hire a young man that had just got out of prison. After a certain period of time, a fond relationship between the two sprung up and from here on I’ll let you become really curious and watch the movie yourself.

And something more to keep you interested, the movie is inspired from a real life event! Enjoy!

Happy Easter!

ImageWe would like to wish Happy Easter to all of those celebrating the Orthodox Easter! May this beautiful celebration bring joy to your life, just as it brings to ours! Thank you for supporting us down this winding road, with ups and downs, positive and negative feedback, and let us continue our journey in this project for a long time from now on!
