Did I tell you that I'm paranoid? I love making plans, I love when I can accomplish them and tick them of my TO DO list, but I get so anxious to start working in a new plan that it is also a torture when I have one. It's that love-hate relationship and sometimes I enjoy it, sometimes it makes me sick. As it was making me sick, I postponed some plans: 1) Roller skates: no money, no time until May. The weather is horrible too, but I'm sure spring will be a lovely time for roller skating in the park (p.s.: I don't skate, I'll have to learn first) ; 2) Gym: same as above. I might give up gym for good if I can make roller skating a habit (huahuahuahuahuahuahuahua); 3) Traveling: guess what?! Same problems! In fact this is a bit worse, as I want to focus on this masters and being away doesn't help at all. My "plan" now is to finish it and after September I can relax and have some fun. I miss making plans already.
One other thing I want to focus this year: my Portuguese citizenship. As my grandfather was Portuguese, I can request the citizenship right after my mother gets hers. I regret not taking care of this before, as it seems to be last complicated than I was told it would be, but there's no time to cry over spilt milk; so we (my mom mostly) are trying to rush with this. The lady at the consulate said that, once you have all the correct documents, the whole process takes around three months; if she didn't lie to us, my mom will be a Portuguese citizen by July. Today I am the proverb girl, so I must say that I don't like to count with the egg inside the chicken's ass (hahahaha, I don't think there's a similar in English, but I love this one in Portuguese; it's poorly translated, but anyways...), but this kind of thing really makes me happy. :-)
Oh my God. I have just realized that I have nothing to say and I'm just making up stories to keep this blog working! Boring... Just to finish and keep some friends posted:
- I'm attending a MAX/MSP course on Saturdays (from 10 am to 5 pm). It's ok, I hope it get's better and it will be useful to my practical projects;
- I'll have classes until March 24th, then one month holidays, then tutorials for my practical projects and dissertation;
- I have to write two 6,000-word essays for April 27th;
- It's raining.
