Hey, give me a break!

It's so funny when she says that, oh, I should have added: by Janet DeCesaris. But that is what I really need right now. I'm super busy, nervous, stressed out. Totally overwhelmed.

The term is going to an end in both the university and the school, and that means that I have plenty things to do: tones of homework, preparing the kids' play, organising all the P3 worksheet of two terms...

On top of that, I'm still preparing my wedding. Yep, I haven't got married yet, but I wish I had. All these final decisions are driving me crazy, it is now when I need him the most because he could be in charge of all the wedding stuff and I could concentrate on my studies and work, only (notice my irony in that only).

Anyway, what I wanted to say with all this bla bla is that I'll be out for a while, maybe until I'm done with finals. So, until then, enjoy life and be happy!

(of course, you don't wanna see my bedroom right now, it's a complete mess :S)


Xmas Journal

Yesterday I was reading the blogs (listed in my Daily Read page) and I decided to start puttig together the Xmas Journal.

It was Elise who encouraged me to do it, I watch her video and I think she is very inspiring and you can tell that she loves what she does.

Well, I don't have a mini book like hers but I have a journal I made almost a year ago and I'm going to use it. The pages are white pages of different sizes and some of them with lines or squares, just regular paper from old notebooks.

These are the pictures of the pages I have completed:

I will work on the front page when I finish the journal. I think I will embroider it. Any other suggestions?


Birthday #28

Last friday I said goodbye to my 27th year. Welcome #28! I started the day in Starbucks
and finished at home with my family

It was a very happy day. Usually on my birthdays I don't feel excited, happy, positive... totally the opposite. But this time it was different and I can't say why. I can't find the reason why I was in such a good mood. I have to confess that all that happiness made me cry at night (but don't tell Bi Zan, he says I cry for everything:). Have you ever cried of happiness? It's good and after crying I slept like a baby.

Today, it was time for me to check my "27 things to do before my 28th birthday" and it has been a complete disaster. I have only accomplished 11 out of 27. Buuuh, bad, very bad! Last year was a tough one... Anyway I'm going to try it again. I'm going to write my "28 things to do before my 29th birthday". There it goes:

1. Take a selfie each month
2. Go to cooking classes
3. Visit 3 new cities
4. Find translation internships
5. Study chinese online
6. Make mini-albums regularly
7. Eat "bravas" every month, take a picture and grade them
8. Take the "Bus Turístic"
9. Visit "Casa Batlló"
10. Participate in any craft workshop
11. Knit a scarf
12. Learn how to use my new Mini Diana
13. Make something following the patchwork technique
14. Pass this year in July
15. Go to the gym at least once a week
16. Cook 12 different pasta dishes
17. Participate in a contest
18. Visit the "Torre de Colón"
19. Have our perfect wedding
20. Make three new friends
21. Pass the B1 French exam
22. Read 5 books
23. Watch 6 movies in the theatre
24. Change my bedroom/studio
25. Learn to swim
26. Post a tutorial of my own in this blog
27. Decorate our apartment
28. Accomplish every single number of this list :)

I think I should wish myself good luck, it's a very long list...

Have a nice week everyone!


Cambios II

El cambio más importante está hecho y, la verdad es que se ve bastante más despejada :)

Todavía quiero hacer algunos pequeños cambios que le darán otro aire a la habitación. Quiero pintar el marco de las fotos de otro color y el del espejo también, quiero poner un colgador detrás de la puerta para los pañuelos y las bufandas, cambiar los cuadros de la pared de la cama, poner cortinas y una alfombra, cambiar las lámparas, la silla y los tiradores de los cajones.

Cuando todo vaya cogiendo otro color, ya subiré más fotos.

(¿Debería decorar también el maniquí? Esta un poco soso, don't you think?;)
