Words of mine

Wordle is the coolest application I ever discovered! You can make one of your own using texts from books, poems or your own blogs.

It reminds me of a semiotical way of analyzing poems or different texts my English teacher taught us. Often the main ideas were expressed with the help of the most used words in the text. The bigger words are the ones I used more often. Pretty interesting I'd say!

Nocturnal thoughts

The crazy race towards graduation is now finished. With all the excitement gone, I am experiencing for the first time in a very long time the art of spending time.

I spend time every day doing things I like. I've taken a short trip to my grandparents, cooked, picked fruits, swung, listened to my fav songs, read, sang, played with a variety of animals, danced, watched tv, watched movies, the X files, hot rod, animal rescue and ..other stuff.

The bottom line is..I am taking a break and it feels good. Not a complete break though. Started having some Job interviews. The real deal after my AIESEC XP. Met some young applicants like me, saw the differences, found out more about this city's market, and turned down the first company interested in me.

I feel grateful for all of these things.. For everything AIESEC has given to me and for all the decisions I have taken to be here. I have friends I can rely on, a vision, values, Knowledge and skills to take me there, I can speak my mind when I have to and I trust myself and know I have to persevere.

I feel at home here more and more each day. I think about the future. My roots are growing strong..I love summer and the summer smell. Sweet and intense, fresh after the rain, warm and ripped, the sea and the flowers of the hills..the forest, the birds ,the light blue sky and the sunsets.

I'm making plans for the next days. Books to read, movies to see, places to go. I am now marking another point on the map. The sweet ambivalence - end and beginning. And for all this, I am more certain every day: my life will not be measured in days!
