Can you believe this? I can't! A full year of blogging has passed by! I just find it truly weird that I have been revolving my life for the past year around the times I should be home to check on my beloved twilight stars and speak my heart on how I feel about each post. I'm not trivial, on the contrary that state comes with a person that takes every aspect of life seriously; a mum, an artist and a working woman:)
But what has triggered it all? to what extent has it influenced my life? where is it heading? I can answer as much as I possibly could to tell you more about me my dear invisible friends from all over the world:) Each green dot popping on my stats globe everyday, meant the world to me. It meant I'm committed to not disappoint you as much as I could. I have done this blog for me and for you and the outstanding young talents that are Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart whom I have grown to watch over and love like my own:)
Apotamkin was born when I saw that The Cold One creature in Twilight had Egyptian roots and being the only Twilight Egyptian fan at the time, hopefully the number has grown by now:), made me think I have something unique and I could claim it and hopefully people will also google me and get here:)
It actually did work and as I started by ranking 350, now Apotamkin:The Cold one of Egypt ranks 32nd among top Twilight blogs worldwide because of each dedicated fan that visited my den daily throughout the year.
I have no affiliates, had no support or collaborative promotions from other blogs, never used my blog for advertising, harassing Rob and Kristen or use inappropriate language because respect and true love is of huge value to me. I have gained very few devoted commentators whom I "Cherish" as friends and they flatter me by calling themselves stalkers to make me feel happy about myself, but in fact it was all because you, them and me stood together for each other despite the silence and the oceans of times and places which separate us. so thank you deeply:)
The Twilight Saga books have captivated my attention and fundamentally released me, I am in awe of the morality and values that Stephenie Meyer have represented in her work to a world in which love, unity and hope is very much lacking. I have changed the way I ate, I have changed my profession into something I love more than teaching and pursued my long neglected gift of drawing, which has further developed into photo editing of the pretties:). The happiness those changes have brought to me doesn't equal any accomplishment I have done before and to be able to share it with over 2500 facebook followers is just soo fulfilling:)
Like Bella I almost lost my life at child birth, lost every drop of blood and was miraculously saved and given the gift of motherhood to one single adorable child. I relate to Bella and totally identified with her tough moments and that solidified my connection to her.
I often dream more and do my best to seek my dreams to the most because I hate regret and I believe whatever is meant to be will be with an effort, and I don't wait for anything to bare fruit so I don't feel disappointed and to my astonishment; Bella, a fictional girl, half my age, taught me the value of sacrifice and that all after will be ok:)
So I blog everyday with no prospect of more, dream of being part of Breaking Dawn because it will simply be awesome to be part of it and wish one day my long distance nursing of Robsten will bring them happiness ever after:) and await nothing to enjoy the surprises if they ever come:)
I'm Lamia aka Apotamkin: The Cold One of Egypt, wish myself tonight, before the beginning of a new year of clueless blogging, A happy Birth Day to this escape of a blog:)
Should I wish to hear from you or should I carry on with my obsession no matter what, is not for me to decide. I'll just let the surging twilight energy guide my finger tips and will never hold it back:)
Lamia: An Egyptian devoted twifan:)
Gorgeous Renesemee Candidate: Mackenzie Foy! Does this little cutie embody The Renesemee we have imagined? What do you think?
I have picked images I think reflect some resemblance to the character and her lovely parents:)

The fact that I never get bored of watching Twilight footage makes me think of one thing; viva Catherine Hardwicke :)

This song is growing on me :) glad an official video of this haunting Eclipse track is out! the official music video of Florence and the Machine's Heavy in Your Arms, I must say is really creepy :)
An interview with Kstew from the Telegraph. UK, I selected a part about her rumored romance with Rpattz and the hide and seek with the paparazzi :)
Read the full interview@source
(Interviewer Will Lawrence wrote): Stewart is less forthcoming about her relationship with her co-star Robert Pattinson.
The very first time I met Pattinson, before the original Twilight film, he enthused about her and laughed about the rebuffs he got when trying to ask her out (Stewart was dating Michael Angarano, her co-star from Speak, at the time).
Since then the pair have become a couple, although neither one has gone on record to confirm it.
The last time I saw Stewart and Pattinson was at this year's Bafta dinner, where they sat together and left together. They definitely acted as a couple.
'It doesn't matter how many times I've spoken to someone or how well they know me, I'm just not going to talk about that,' she says when I ask.
'But it is weird with the paparazzi,' she continues. 'We are not on the top of the paparazzi list, but it is definitely tougher for Rob.'
The pair looked to have been rumbled when a photographer caught them cosying up on the Isle of Wight
over New Year.
'That was some kid, not paparazzi, who took that shot,' she says, smiling. 'That's the kind of thing that just baffles you. I can't believe that came out.'
She says that she finds London an easier place to roam than New York or Los Angeles, and concedes that she can no longer live a normal existence in her home-town.
'I have friends who say, "Hey. We are in a restaurant today. Want to come? A bunch of us are hanging out?" And yet I am like, "Do you want to go to someone's house? It would be so much more fun.
Bring everyone round to my house!" It is weird never to be just some girl. Everybody knows me so I can never be just a new person with somebody. New people always have an impression of me and I am so aware of it, and it probably changes me.'
Her hobbies, she says, are simple. Along with her interest in the guitar, she's an avid reader and likes to write ('not stories per se, just thoughts and bits of prose').
She also adores her cat, Max, who is 'insane. He's like the antichrist when I try to travel with him. I like to take him with me when I'm away filming.'
Stewart is currently shooting an adaptation of On the Road, directed by the Brazilian film-maker Walter Salles. 'I play Marylou and I am f–ing freaking out about it. Nobody has ever tried to make it and yet, reading the book, it is insanely iconic.
It is my favourite book. It is so f–ing cool that I am doing it. A friend introduced me to it when I was 14 and I have read it a couple of times.'
When that finishes she'll begin work on the final chapters in the Twilight saga (the novel Breaking Dawn has been divided into two films).
'With Twilight we all really got lucky. It is a rare thing on a movie, when it hits and it gives you freedom. Because of Twilight I could make a film like Welcome to the Rileys.'
Yet to be released in Britain, this indie film, produced by Ridley Scott, sees Stewart play a prostitute. 'I'm happy that people might think, "Let's go and see that Twilight girl in a stripper movie!" I'm cool with that.' Perhaps being Kristen Stewart isn't so tough, after all.

Suffering the backlash of the Twilight drought and the need to feed on anything remotely related to it! I went on a hunt for a Twilight fan video, this one was the best I stumbled upon within my suffocated blogging time:) I like how it captures moments where Rob and Kristen are at their best as genuine actors, I know I'm biased but watch and see:)

Great Rob stills from Remember me color edited and cropped for my slide show. You could view tons of those stills @source as you know I'm more into selecting my favorites:)

Had one of those nostalgic moments where I needed to hear Rob talk about what Twilight is about. It's always nice to find those interviews that I either haven't seen at all or just remember fragments of them. Hope you enjoy these as much as I did while filtering and selecting for my post:)
