Well, one way or another, this 2009 I had a good time

tour of the universe

At the beginning of December, I was invited to go to Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico, in order to attend a thing from work. The event only lasted a day but as I was already there, I decided to stay two more days and hang around the city. As a consequence I had the chance to visit downtown, mainly, and two nearby cities: Zapopan and Tlaquepaque. However, I wanted to visit Tequila and learn about the production of the drink called the same way, and taste a bit, ha ha. What I loved the most were the limited levels of smog and noise, the fact that there are a lot of parks and fountains and the accent of the people. MY SPANISH ACCENT IS SOOOOO BORING.
You know, this year I have visited cities from my own country that were unknown to me, yeeeaaah!

an order

I want to learn Korean and I want it NOW

Yo, Olimpia, confieso que este año he pecado de flojera y exceso de confianza. Dichos actos se ven plenamente reflejados en mis ojeras y la inexistencia de mi tesis.

sunday bathtime could take a while

What did you learn from your time in the solitary cell of your mind?
There was noise, distraction from anything good
And the prison food
Colour my life with the chaos of trouble
Cause anything's better than a posh isolation
I missed the bus
You were laid on your back
With the boy of the arab strap

--belle and sebastian

today, I woke up in a belle and sebastian mood

old times

I do remember.
When I was in elementary school, I was always running, trying to get home on time to watch Ernest, le vampire. It was one of my favorite cartoons. I was captivated by his intense oniric life, I guess. My favorite part was his scared face at the end. It is so sad he never got the lady.

Also, I'm recalling that once, after a Paté de Fuá concert, Aida and I started to watch all episodes on youtube, deciding which one was our favorite. After choosing, but before falling asleep, I guess we talked and talked and laughed and laughed (and she may have complained about my cold feet, ho ho)

Today, I stayed home not knowing what to do. I have a lot of things in my to-do list (top of the list, reading for my dissertion, knitting, other readings, Xmas presents...). At first I wanted to go to my favorite coffee shop and read but in the end, I choose to stay here and enjoy doing nothing in particular..a bit of this, a bit of that. However, it has called my attention that started to rain. I thought rains were over in November.

new nails

I have the terrible habit of biting my nails. I do it when I'm nervous, bored or anxious. To control it, one of my latest ideas was to use fake nails. But it feels sooo weird. I'm not used to wear my nails long, so now, I have to change the way I grab things or the force I use because I may break them. For example, typing at this precise moment it's difficult because the new nails are on my way. It's a matter of getting used to them..something I wish happens soon.

walking around the city

Yesterday, I was supposed to meet a friend but communication failed and we couldn't find each other. So, I decided to visit some stores and find inspiration for wish list for Xmas. What I found and actually I bought was this notebook with the cover design inspired in one of my Fav tv programs : Boys Before Flowers. The store where I found it sells 100% Korean stuff and there were a lot of things to see. I felt so happy. Also, at my favorite bookstore I found the Pride and Prejudice book I told you about.

My dear friend Melisa suffers because she tends to forget what she has to do, it doesn't matter if she writes it down on her to-do-list. I suffer from a similar problem. What did I do? I bought a blackboard where I place everything: pictures, to-do-list, a calendar, books I want to read/buy... everything. It's in front of my bed, there is no way to miss my activities (well, it's a bit messy, too much information, but believe me it works)

One of my favorite parts is when Tom asks her about her past boyfriends and she tells him about them and he askes, again, what happened with them, why they didn't work out and she answers, what always happens..life. A thing we all know but sometimes I forget

(you can listen that part if you pay attention on 1:51)


My favorite perfume

When I saw these tights for the very first time, I wasn't sure, but in the end, it was so cool that my companions insisted on my purchase

¿qué es lo que le ocurre a un clavo para que decida que ya no puede más?

"A mi siempre me ha sorprendido el asunto ese de los cuadros. Están colgados durante años, después, sin que pase nada, pero nada de nada, zas, al suelo, se caen. Están ahí, colgados del clavo, nadie les dice nada, pero ellos, en cierto momento, zas, se caen al suelo como piedras. En el silencio más absoluto, con todo inmóvil a su alrededor; ni tan siquiera una mosca que se mueva, y ellos, zas. No hay causa. ¿Por qué precisamente en ese instante? No se sabe. Zas. ¿Qué es lo que le ocurre a un clavo para que decida que ya no puede más? ¿Tiene él también un alma, el pobrecillo? ¿Toma decisiones? Habló largamente sobre el tema con el cuadro, estaban indecisos sobre cómo actuar, hablaban de ello todas las noches, desde hacía años, después decidieron una fecha, una hora, un minuto, un instante, ya está, zas. O los dos lo sabían ya desde un buen principio, ya estaba todo preparado, mira, yo me largo dentro de siete años, por mí está bien, de acuerdo, pues entonces quedamos para el trece de mayo, vale, hacia las seis, pongamos las seis menos cuarto, de acuerdo, pues buenas noches, hasta entonces. Siete años después, un trece de mayo, a las seis menos cuarto: zas. No hay quien lo entienda. Es una de esas cosas que mejor no pensarlas, porque si no puedes acabar volviéndote loco. Cuando se cae un cuadro. Cuando despiertas y ya no la amas. Cuando abres el periódico y lees que ha estallado la guerra. Cuando ves un tren y piensas tengo que largarme de aquí. Cuando te miras en el espejo y te das cuenta de que eres viejo. Cuando, en mitad del océano, Novecento levantó la mirada de su plato y me dijo: "En Nueva York, dentro de tres días, bajaré de este barco"
Me quede de piedra.

--Novecento by Alessandro Baricco

time out

I'm going off the city. I've decided that the computer is staying home. This can be a chance to get desconected from the world-- I mean, I'll just be out for three days but I want to leave routine behind.

See you next week.
Have a nice time :)

my heart's desire

I have already ordered a copy

and I got this one on pdf (though I would love to have the book)

"It is a truth universally acknowledged that a zombie in possession of brains must be in want of more brains. Never was this truth more plain than during the recent attacks at Netherfield Park in which the household of eighteen was slaughtered and consumed by a horde of the living dead"

just looking

So, while I'm cleaning my room, preparing my outfit and getting ready to go, Mona just....

It seems that my excessive happines was due to a sugar overdose. Originally, I was happy but sugar did the rest, ho ho.
Apart from decorating my house and reading I've been going to the movies.

First a friend and I went to watch
Inglorious Basterds. Lots of friends were talking about it so I felt curious. Pitt's accent is magnificent. The picture was better than what I expected but certain things reminded me other movies, not from Tarantino. Besides,I kept looking from resemblances between the German actors and American actors. I love the music. My favorite character: Hans Landa.

Yesterday, I went to watch
Disgrace with another friend. This movie is based upon a book with the same name by J. M. Coetzee. I've read the book a couple of years ago and I really liked it. There were certains scenes, my favorites, that I still remember perfectly. Tough, Malkovich plays his part great, the story on the screen didn't seduce me as the story on paper. Obviously, the charcters were completely different inside my mind and all. On screen the story is fragmented and I don't know if it is easy to follow. The landscape is really beautiful and very well portrayed. In the end, I didn't like it.

Yesterday/Today I woke up feeling tremendously happy. No reason, apparentaly.

It didn't matter that I had to present two exams and work on my dissertation. I was happy. Plain happiness.

It Smells like Xmas

As the song says, I feel it in my fingers, I feel it in my toes. Xmas is all around me....

Xmas decorations started. Tomorrow we'll go and buy the lights and other supplements that we need to finish this decorative task. Happiness. I love my house full of lights and the Xmas tree and all :)

This song comes from one of my favorite Xmas movies: Love Actually (apart from this hillarious song a person can find, also, Hugh Grant dancing--this movie has a lot to offer, haha)

Barbie's Car

Finding a new car starts to be a pain in the ass. Honestly I don't want one but it is kind of necessary in a big city like mine. I'd like to drive on my bicycle all day, but probably I'd be killed hit by a car in less than a minute.. drivers don't respect other drivers, iuk!

What I really want? To be a Barbie Girl once more!

Monalisa's getting ready for the cold

She is getting ready for this harsh weather

oh, love, oh, love!

So I finally went and watch 500 Days of Summer. It is this classic chick flick that I love, where the male character is the cutest and silliest young man in the world. The thing is that in real life, these guys are my type: I always go for the cute guys never for the rude, dangerous type. Never.
I was wondering if tv programs have influenced my likes, or they just reflect it. For example, the following are my favorite t.v characters (well, the ones I can think of at this moment)

1. Cory Matthews from a tv program Boy Meets World. He was the cute, naïve, honest boy, I would chose him over Shun

2. Seth Cohen from The OC. Please, this is a very clear example. The geek, cute, goofey guy. Intelligent and ironic who dresses cute. I would never chose Luke or Ryan

3. Henry Something from Dawson’s Creek. He was so obsessed with Jen. Again, geek and cute. Percy, I’ll never go for him, even if he looks like Joshua Jackson

4. Aidan from Sex and the City. I’ll never forgive Carry from cheating on him. He was so caring, nice, noble and cute

5. Joo Goon Pyo from Boys Before Flowers. Although he is rich and treats people awfully—he is the cutest person and is always caring for his beloved one. He will do everything for love. He finds it hard to show his feelings but that doesn’t keep him from being sweet. He is silly, intelligent.. PERFECT haha

I feel famous

It turns out that I was interviewed due to my participation at the Russian event I told you about. I had to dresses properly and all because my pic was to be taken. I felt so important. Anyways, I think it’s cool that the congress gets diffusion so next year more people gets involved. Autographs after the publication, haha

outfits outfits EXTRA

Saturday: a lecture and drinks with friends.
I was wearing a pink cardigan too, but I couldn't find it for the pic

outfits outfits II

I feel that my previous post sounded like I was going to show hundreds of outfits and I just posted two, so here are three more. Have a nice weekend

This is my The Killers concert outfit

movies with a friend

today, something casual for an indoors day

outfits outfits

I'm not sure why I am awake at this time BUT, as I am here, let me show you some outfits :)

I'm really into wearing tights. I don't know, somehow I've got tired of wearing jeans, yeah, yeah, they are so practical and comfortable but, naaa, I want something different. I still don't have too many skirts and dresses, but I'm working on it.

this was taken at night, my dress has a lot of wrinkles, hey, it is made of linen, such a delicate fabric. But the color is so cool.

It looks as if I were mad but I am not, lately I've been doing funny faces in front of the camara, no matter how hard I try to avoid it.

weekend at San Luis Potosi

I just came back from my trip to San Luis Potosí. It was a complete success, I had a lot of fun and I won first place, claps, claps, please.
I've never gone to San Luis before. It is a beautiful place, with a downtown very similar to the one in my city. But the people its completely different: at San Luis they're so kind and gentle. The streets are quiet and clean. Also, there are these corridors where you can walk and walk.
The wheather was good, a bit chilli but fine. The food was great. And I got the chance to get to know other students and teachers. Also I visited an old house, so beautiful: just one floor and all the rooms connected surrounding the central yard. Beautiful
