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

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.

What I've been reading lately: Master and Margarita by Mijail Bulgakov

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 :)
