Love in the Time of Cholera

Love in the Time of Cholera is a Gabriel Garcia Marques novel adapted to the screen. I went to see the movies and I thought is was a great one. The characters performed their role in such a passionate way that seems that we public are living the romance.
A love story that lasts through times and tells us that we are never too old to love.
Florentino Ariza falls deply in love for Fermina Daza that is also very in love with him. Her father is against the romance and separates them. When she returns she realizes that it was only an illusion, not true love. He remains broken hearted and follow every step she gives in order to try to win her back. Even when she gets married he does not give up dreaming of a one day perfect ending with the love of his life.
Everyone should see this movie and think about the love lesson it give us.
Furthermore the soundtrack was really amazing… original songs by Shakira, playing together with those great landscapes… something one needs to see in order to feel…
Simply loved it!

My teenager dream job as a police officer

One of my teenager dream professions was to be a police woman. When I was young it was what I intended to follow as a profession but I had little knowledge on how I could apply to the graduated police school and when I found out that I needed to take an examination of a subject I knew nothing it was too late. So I’ve decided to study languages. Well I guess I still have that dream because every now and then I see myself searching for all that might be relative to a police job, including clothes like 5.11 Tactical Shirts, equipments and all that might bring me some memories of that old dream. In one of my searches I found out a site with amazing products that are very interesting not only for real police officers but also for common people and I found myself once more dreaming on how could I have done a great job as a police women if I had the chance. After having my graduation I also tried police air force but when I applied I was told I was too short, another big disappointment… Well Life is made of achieved goals and disappointments and we have to deal with all of them.

Weight loss

I’ve been trying to lose some weight this week. Well, I have a friend’s wedding ceremony and I want to be in shape. The reason is that as I don’t have money to buy new clothe I have to stick with a dress that I used last year in on another friend’s wedding ceremony. My problem is that I was 5 kgs lighter than I am, or then I was. I started to go on a diet this Monday and I’ve decided that I wanted to lose at least 4 kilos. It’s not that I feel that I’m fat, last year I was really skinny, but it’s cheaper to go on a diet then buying a new dress. So my diet is based on a huge reduction on average of inhered calories a day. Instead of the 2500 calories we should eat a day I’m trying to eat only from 100 to 1200 calories. I think I’m managing to do so. I weight myself every day. The first day, from Monday to Tuesday, I loss 1 kg, I was really happy. But the second and the third day I can only lose half kilo each day. In three days I lost 2 kilos. Yesterday I was a bit disappointed but today I must admit that its not bad at all considering I didn’t stop eating, like some people do, but, instead, I’m trying to eat on a healthier way.
I think I’ll keep on doing a healthier diet and I’ll keep you up to dated how I’m I going. I must warn you that Saturday does not count. I’ll try not to abuse and not to eat bad food but I think I’ll eat a sweat or two.
Next week I’ll put you my daily diet.

Teaching English for kids

I’ve been teaching English for kids from 8 to 10 years old. It’s not an easy job. They are always talking and have no respect whatsoever for me. I used to be a very nice teacher but with these kids I had to change my technique been not so nice and sometimes I even have to be rude. I thinks it’s worse because they know that English is only to keep them busy and have no effect on the final grade at the end of the year. I certainly tried to have them busy with activities and songs and games but it seems that there is always some of them that are not satisfied and disturb all the class. I have two classes, one really noisy and disturbing and the other not so noise. On the other day on the first class there were 4 children missing, luckily were the ones that have worse behavior and the class went wonderful, I realized from then that we only need one or two disturbing children to incentive all the others to disturb the class. Sometimes I find myself thinking if maybe the problem it at home, maybe they don’t have enough attention at home and need to draw attention in class for the others to notice.

Beautiful Images

I’ve searching for images that I like to do a print with some of them to put it in one of my office’s wall. Instead of wall paper, which everyone is using at the moment, I want to use a big print and add it beautiful sentences in several languages to make something different. I found out lots of great images so I’ll leave you with this one:

Internet Problem

In what concerns technologies my new life is not starting very well. I ordered cable Internet thinking it was the best, and indeed it is very fast opening pages but it’s my second week using it and it’s been three days since I have no internet connection. Luckily I have a Internet mobile board that I can use but not for long once I have to reduce on expenses and I can’t have both. But to make it difficult I have to say that living very close the city centre I can’t have the 3G connection leaving me with the 2G (GPRS) that works worse than in my parents (a local village that has nothing).Moving to the city I thought all that problems of living in the middle of nowhere would be gone, well I guess I was wrong and I thing I have keep on dealing with Technology problems not to loose practice.

I signed up for PPP!

I like to read a lot but as I spend most of my day in from of the computer I’ve decided to take five minutes of my day to find out and read some interesting blogs. That was when I found out Pay Per Post so I’ve signed up. It was a long time ago and I did it because I found it a very interesting way of earning Money while writing about what we love. First I was not able to start writing to them cause I had my blog for less than three months. I’ve decided to wait while writing articles that could be of interest not only for me but also for others, not forgetting my personal issues. Well, things got complicated in my life I got sick for a long time not being able to do my normal life and not having the wills to write about anything. After that I started to feel better and visited Pay Per Post but as I did not write anything for a long time I had not enough posts to be eligible. But still I did not give up. I searched a lot of information about people writing for Pay Per Post and realized that all of them had two things in common… first, they all loved to write and second, they all were very happy with Pay Per Post. So I’ve decided to start writing when I could about issues that I’m fond of and here I am with my first post as a member of Pay Per Post. I hope that I can meet a lot of interesting pay per posties and I really hope that my b log can be an interesting one forsome of them too.

My new life as a non just married girl

I’m moving from my parents home to a new apartment with Angel and no, we are not going to marry for now. It has not been easier these new weeks because the apartment is a mess and I can’t find the time to put it right. I still haven’t brought all my stuff neither did Angel. Another reason for this mess is that we don’t have all the furniture and electro domestics yet so we can’t have a normal life. The apartment is always dirty, with people coming in and out all the time to deliver this or that, I have lots of laundry to iron (house laundry that I was given when child to keep and use only for when I’m married) lot’s of things to fix like chandeliers, and we still haven’t started the decoration yet. Judging by this I think I’ll have my house messy for a long time until I manage to have it all or almost all in place. I used to take care of my home while at my parents but still it’s a bit different. I’ll see how I’ll get along these next times.
