Today I’m…

ANGRY: I’m planifying my “traditional” Winter Journey and my parents prefer me to go to Norway -where I only know a guy (you know who) who might not even be able to meet me there- than let me go visit any of the numerous interesting people I’ve known in the Internet for months and years in some cases. I’ve already met some people I knew through the Internet, and it always went well, because I am not such an idiot as to go meeting evident perverts. But it’s true that in those occasions when I told my parents I always included a little “lie” such as that I had met them anywhere else… This time I wanted to say the truth, because I am a good lier, but I don’t like being a lier and… They won’t let me go :mad2:. Of course, it’s only their oppinion, and I’m sure that if I eventually buy the tickets, they won’t get mad at me at all and even give me some extra money, but just the fact of them being fussy about the issue makes me feel rather upset. GOSH, IT’S MY MONEY, AND I AM 25!! 😡

Whatever: having the chance of meeting Q. in Norway is quite a nice plan 😎 Besides, I have just learnt that he is coming “again” (he had just left after Christmas holidays) with some of his mates from there. He is staying here from the 10th to the 19 of February 😉

SAD: I’m getting fed up with the guy who is often with me in Santiago. He is always making plans to go to out, but he never turns up!! I try to phone him and I can’t get through… It’s a waste of time for me, but I want to be polite and I wait for hours, then I come back home and he appears at 23:30 or so or sends an sms to me to beg for forgiveness. I don’t mind a bit of irresponsability and I even like improvisasion, but all this has turned out to be rahter annoying and rude of his. I’ve asked him to try to avoid being such a blah!, but he kept doing that and has already done it about 10 times!! I know he might get sad if he reads that I’m getting fed up with him: but it’s sadder for me 😐

RELIEVED: My pre-doctoral thesis tutor -ahem: my uncle :mrgreen:- had suggested me to finish the task by March, but I know for sure that I cannot have anything decent before June. I know he knows it’s my problem, but I also thought he would get dissapointed or something. But it was only that I could get quite a good scolarship if I ended it by March… Now I feel sooo relieved… o:) I don’t care for money; well, I do, but I care for my psychiatric health better :geeked: I like the topic I am working on quite a lot, but I am involved in such a lot of things… Well, I like all that too, but I don’t like all that “I have to hand this, make that, do those, phone that one, meet the other one BY TOMORROW” :dead:
Yeah, now I am relieved…

Well, it’s not always easy, but I always end up by getting glad :smh:… I guess today’s been easier because I haven’t heard the news nor read the paper :think:


  1. Errr…¿Los comentarios son nuevos? Los acabo de ver.Si estaban desde hace tiempo entonces tengo un grave problema con mi ordenador 😕

    A ver,más cosas.Soy una inepta con el dichoso inglés,pero me ha parecido entender que no te dejan ir a algún sitio…No será a Murcia! Porque in this case yo hablo con tus parents.Les haré ver que no soy una pervertida.A decir verdad soy un trozo de pan! En serio,ayudo a cruzar la calle a las viejecitas o:)
    Bueno,ya sabes que me encantaría que vinieses a Murcia 😀
    Nos leemos! 😉

  2. Woo-hoo! So glad that you enabled the comments :wall:

    About the thing you’re angry with…at least you are allowed to travel. I don’t know if my mom and dad would let me go anywhere without them. So, don’t complain;)

  3. Yeah Iva, the worst of it is that I don’t have the right to complain 😛
    Anyway, I see that you said “I don’t know if my mom and dad would…” Have you tried asking them? You are 20 and travelling own your own (well, it’s better with a friend or if you meet anyone abroad ) would be good for your education 🙂 If you ever would like to visit Spain I would host you, I’ve already done international exchanges and everybody ended alive 😀

    Y sí Patán, lo de los comentarios son nuevos: es que tenía que arreglar cosas en el código para habilitarlos y hasta ayer estuve vaga en ese aspecto :p Y también has entendido bien que me apetecía ir a Murcia, pero cuando mis padres (léase: “mi madre”) me preguntaron que qué se me había perdido por ahí, respondí que “cultura general”, pero la lareta de mi hermana soltó “sus amiguetes de Internet” y ahí se fastidió. Terminaré convenciéndolos y me encantará poder visitarte si a ti no te importa :), pero quizás no sea antes de primavera 🙁
    Bueno, gracias por haberte pasado por mis paranoias vitales en inglés 😎

  4. OK..*blushes*…I am 20o, but I’ll be 21 in a month. Thanks for the nice offer. But getting anywhere from here is a pain, since we need visas for almost each country on the world. :mad2:

  5. Me alegra saber que:
    1º – mi ordenador no está loco.
    2º – todavía puedo entender algo en inglés.Las dos semanas (hace cinco años) que pasé en el sur de UK han resultado ser muy fructíferas,sin duda :p

    En primavera sería perfecto,ya me habré recuperado de las lesiones del accidente y además serán las fiestas de primavera,y hará calorcito…En fin,una buena fecha!
    Y si,después de comentarle a tu madre lo buena y poco pervertida que soy,sigue pareciéndole mal,entonces say the truth:que quieres ver con tus propios ojos la belleza de la maravillosa huerta murciana 😛

    ´Ta lué! —“hasta luego” en murciano :p—

  6. Frauke: “Tendencies on the use of the pasive forms in coloquial written Spanish. A corpus based study (blogs)” :geeked: Well, the title is in Spanish, but I guess this gives an idea 😎

    Patán: “La huerta murciana” fue lo primero que solté :smh: Y luego, que quería conocer la tierra de parte de mis ancestros, pero bueno, seguiré intentándolo o:)

  7. Iva: yeah, I know that all that about visas is a pain, but I guess it won’t last too long… Well, I’m just guessing :eh: Anyway, you’d better be preparing to travel abroad, you never know when you will finally have the chance, it might be soon! 😯
