Go Do

I'm so happy

Yesterday I had the best Russian class ever.
Full of exercises, vocabulary and things I didn't know. Oh, why can't every class be like this one n_n

let me tell you a story

Clothing dreams

Oh no. Not this again. It's the clothing dream. I've been having it for fifty years. Aisle after aisle, closetful, metal rack after metal rack of clothing, stretching into the distance under the glare of the flourescent tubing- as goudy and ornate and confusing, and finally as gloom and oppressive as the dreams of a long time opium smoker. Why am I compelled to riffle through these outfits, tangling up the hangers, tripping on the ribbons, snagging myself on a hook or buttom while the feathers and sequins and fake pearls drop to the floor like ants from a burning tree? What is the occasion? Who do I need to impress?

There's a smell of stale underarms. Everything's been worn before. Nothing fits. Too small, too big, too magenta. These flounces, hoops, ruffles, wired collars, cut-velvet-capes, none of these disguises is mine. How old am I in this dream? Do I have tits? Whose life am I living? Whose life am I failing to live?

wrapped up in books

Last Tuesday, I paid a visit to my favourite book store. Luckily, I found the books I had in mind and even better, I found another ones.. so I returned to my place loaded with books. I don't know why, I love this book store, they usually have the type of books I like, also, here there are cultural activities like poetry reading and music concerts. There is, as well, a little restaurant where you can eat or have a coffee as you read your new adquisitions. AND as I am a frequent client I have 10% discount in my purchases. Lovely place indeed!

I can't wait to start reading them :)

There must be something wrong with me. I can't keep myself from showing you my beautiful dog. Mona is so cute!!

i'm not living in the real world

I am so happy because I'm knitting again.
I decided to take a look to the pieces of thread lost in my house and they gave me ideas. Also, I found some web sites so full of amazing things that I couldn't control myself and gave them a try.
This is part of what I've been doing

I think these are inspiring things

This secret makes me work on my final paper. That's why, after Brady's match (big sigh because they've lost) I came to my favorite Starbucks to write and write and read

coast to coast

OMG!!! I'm freezing! I know, I know, it is colder in other parts of the world but I am a girl from the tropics who enjoys the sun, the sand and the sea.
This cold has been the perfect excuse to stay home with the boyfriend, watch some thrillers, read and write for the final paper, fight against Russian verbs and drink hot chocolate!

I feellike eating Korean food NOOOOW!

if you're feeling sinister

Hey, I came back. I had so much fun at Zacatecas. Mostly at the end, when we were on our way back.
Well, you know the Day of the Dead, Halloween or however you want to call it is around. So, I want to show you what the boyfriend and me prepared
