new things

This Sunday my mother was in good mood and decided to buy me a pair of shoes. What do you think? I really liked them and they were really cheap, what else can I ask for?

Today, after my English class, I went to the bookstore and found these beautiful things. The bad thing is that the book that I needed wasn't available.

The Empire of Fashion: Dressing Modern Democracy by Gilles Lipovetsky
Breakfast at Tiffany's by Truman Capote
Mrs. Dalloway by Virginia Woolf
Feminism: A Short Introduction by Margaret Walters
The one by Lipovetsky seems interesting. In the back cover it says:
"In a book full of playful irony and stricking insights, the controversial social philosopher Gilles Lipovetsky draws on the history of fashion to demostrate that the modern cult of appearance and superficiality actually serves the common good. Focusing on clothing, bodily deportment, sex role, sexual practices, and political rhetoric as forms of "fashion", Lipovetsky bounds across two thousand years of history, showing how the evolution of fashion from upper- class priviledge into vehicle of popular expression closely follows the rise of democratic values. Whereas Tocqueville feared that mass culture would create passive citizens incapable of political reasoning, Lipovetsky argues that today's mass- produced fashion offers many choices, which in turn enable consumers to become complex individuals within a consolidated, democratically educated society."
Let's read and see...

quote of the day

In my younger and more vulnerable years my father gave me some advice that I've been turning over in my mind ever since.
"Whenever you feel like criticizing any one," he told me, "just remember that all the people in this world haven't had the advantages that you've had."

my object of desire

Rompope muffins.

I don't know how to explain this but I love them. I want to say that I don't eat them all at once and I share them. They are delicious. (and I don't know how to translate rompope)

all that jazz

To accomplish one of my new year's resolutions I'm taking dancing classes. Jazz classes. They've been two weeks that have helped me to confirm how weak I am. My body hurts. A lot. But, althought I'm weak I'm brave and I won't give up. Actually I think I've improved and that makes me happy, it makes me feel that the pain is worhty. And by the way, I feel really sleepy, fortunately, the weekend is coming :)

one color

I'm not in the mood. So today I decided I wanted to stay unseen. Monochromy helps with that.

Can somebody explain me why does the washing machine eat my socks?
I simple can't find the other pair.

quote of the day

Out of the corner of one eye, I could see my mother. Out of the corner of the other eye, I could see her shadow on the wall, cast there by the lamplight. It was a big and solid shadow, and it looked so much like my mother that I became frightened. For I could not be sure whether for the rest of my life I would be able to tell when it was really my mother and when it was really her shadow standing between me and the rest of the world.

back home

The trip out of the city did not end up as I wanted. It was supposed to be a family reunion that only included the eldest members. I was going because my grandma didn't want to left me alone. So I thought it was a good opportunity to take out Mona and get tanned.

But no

The house was full of kids afraid of Mona. So she had to be chained. I spend half of the trip telling her not to bark. However, she had moments of joy, I loved how she was chasing butterflies and running to get the ball. I must say that she runs really fast. Now, we're back home and we are really tired and sleepy. The bad things is that I have a lot of homework for Monday morning and I'm not tanned.

outfit 10/ 03

Yesterday I wore a skirt after so long. I felt strange. I guess I should were them more often to get use but I don't have too many. Today Icut my hair. It looks quiet similar to my previous hair cut, it's just that my hair grow a lot in two months.

This is what I wore last Monday.

Today I wake up and remembered this poem

A Childish Prank
Man's and woman's bodies lay without souls,
Dully gaping, foolishly staring, inert
On the flowers of Eden.
God pondered.
The problem was so great, it dragged him asleep.
Crow laughed.
He bit the Worm, God's only son,
Into two writhing halves.
He stuffed into man the tail half
With the wounded end hanging out.
He stuffed the head half headfirst into woman
And it crept in deeper and up
To peer out through her eyes
Calling its tail-half to join up quickly, quickly
Because O it was painful.
Man awoke being dragged across the grass.
Woman awoke to see him coming.
Neither knew what had happened.
God went on sleeping.
Crow went on laughing.
Ted Hughes.

I heart

I looooove Marie Antoinette

viernes, 7 de marzo de 2008

I really wanted to read What Casanova Told me but as I have other things to read I left it aside. However, as the topic was still in my mind I decided to rent Casanova. And as Marie Antoinette was around I rented it too. I guess my weekend in going to be very vintage, haha. But as there must be a balance I'll be reading Life of Pi the story of a boy, a tiger and a boat, so postmodern.

I have to fix my car because today I crashed. Nothing serious but voluminous.

Congratulations Élika!

a week

This is my first week with 22 years and two interesting things have happened to me since then:

1. During my birthday celebration I fell down. What is this suppose to mean? I don't know how to take it, is it good? is it bad? was it a coincidence, or what? Does it happen to everybody at the age of 22? However it was really funny but painful.

2. El maestro guapo gave me a kiss in the cheek...oh!

quote of the day

I've never forgotten him. Dare I say I miss him? I do. I miss him. I still see him in my dreams. They are nightmares mostly, but nightmares tinged with love. Such is the strangeness of the human heart. I still cannot understand how he could abandon me so unceremoniously, without any sort of goodbye, without looking back even at once. That pain is like an axe that chops at my heart.

from Life of Pi

celebraciones cumpleañeras

Thank you very much for your nice wishes.

I had a good time during my birthday. The 28th I celebrated in my way, which means doing what I love to do. I had nice conversations, nice meals and a nice time watching movies that I want to see since forever.
The guys from the social service and I ate a wonderful cake of coconut and chocolate. Yesterday, Aida organized a reunion to celebreate my birthday. I just can't believe that I forgot to tell more of my friends, so althought the quorum was not high we had a good time, you know, it is always good to be surrounded by your favorite people.

I received nice birthday presents: delicious muffins, some books, shoes and some money. Also, I received "Happy birthday words" from el maestro guapo, which is amazing, oh god, he's so handsome!!!.

I've make some choises concerning my life,they make me feel excited. I'm still happy because recentely I've been surrounded my interesting people. However, haha, I'm sad because I wasn't able to finish What Casanova Told me but if you're able to read it, please do. I promise I'll read it during these holidays. I'll show you some pictures in other ocasion :)
