About Me


Surviving positively


About many of us, as a matter of fact. Responsible enough to live alone, keep the house clean and let my room mate do what she wants. Quite organized but creative at the same time (at home: new hand-made accessories are all around), calm and active: books with wine, cleaning with The Doors. Balanced, I like to say (or try to be so). Very in love with almost everything -from books to tupper dishes, from art pieces to doing-nothing afternoons, football games, Ikea's new carpet design... Also a little bit scared of the future -specially in our economic situation, but trying to keep positive and optimistic. Maybe insecure at first, but opened-minded and talkative, and ready to know new things, people, places, experiences. Loving what I have, with no regrets about what I haven't get in the past. Sometimes (always, actually) feeling the pain (you know, general pain, not any specific one) make you happier.


Subjective acknowledge and ecological thought. Let's start learning from what we like, and then, as we get more into it, let's know the particular context where it comes from.
Let's forbide the intellectual memorization of the (totally respectable, after all) ancient books at the age of 15. Let's the children (let's US) create its (our) own, particular and satisfying word.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I haven't done anything spectacular, actually. I have never been traveling for a year, nor let my soul fly to the Unknown Powers. Maybe this is because little things are what matter to me. I've lived these 21 (?) years of consciousness in a way that now, when I look back, I conceive life as an accumulation of facts that had to be there. So, living the present -I'm not exactly "carpe-diem" one- with my whole past experiences in my back, I just need the breath of life -Florence and the machine dixit- to be happy.

Teach, Learn, Share

Who never ate his bread in sorrow / Who never spent the midnight hours / weeping and waiting for the morrow / he knows you not, ye Heavenly Powers.
