Today in Spain is the day were the kids get their Chirstmas presents, because instead of Santa we believe in the Three Wise Men. It’s Sunday plus a national holiday.
This was the introduction before I said what I have been thinking for some time.
I’m extremely grateful for my parents. I know we don’t always understand each other, we fight and all of that stuff, but it’s life, it’s normal and we still love each other no matter what. I couldn’t be happier about some of the values that they taught me or passed into me or however this works. I understand and appreciate that now, specially since some people lack them.
The reason for all this rambling is that my dad co-created (or whichever is the correct verb for it) and now works for a NGO. There is one man who lives in the center of this NGO that had a work-related accident and now he is in really bad shape (half of his skull was crushed) but he still gets everything. I think that is the hardest thing, to know that you are really incapable of doing some stuff and realising that is never going to change. He has family (brothers and/or sisters) that never ever visit him, he is just there. Today is not only a national holiday when all the family gets together but it’s also his Birthday. And you guess who is going to visit him? My family, not his. And that makes me sad and angry at the same time because no matter what he did to you in the past he needs your love and affection now because he is basically going through hell and you are just waiting for him to die and get the insurance money.
I’m very loyal towards my family. I can’t even begin to phantom what would stop you from visiting him.
So I’m really glad my parents taught me that.
I was tagged by this amazing lady. I will answer the questions but I won’t tag anyone, mainly because I don’t think I can come up with 11 original questions.
I have no idea what those are. According to my experience with similar-looking sweets in Spain I’m going to go with Wine Gums.
I can’t pick just one and they change from time to time because I get more obsessed with one or another depending on my humour, but I think the top 3 will be LOTR, ASoIaF and The house of the spirits.
Teen Wolf, Game of Thrones, Harry Potter, Bones and Castle.
Why are you making me choose? I don’t have a favourite. I love all of them. It will depend on what I am wearing or my mood. I have a huge range to choose and I love all of them.
It depends on the role. Definitely not the Hunger Games because I’d never survive the bloodbath.
This is a funny one.
I love questions. I love to talk, as you can see from the above answers.
OMG. Let me look for it. There was an awesome one the other day.
I can’t think of anything right now.
I guess this is a reference I’m not getting T_T
I’d always heard rumors of people making their own almond milk but I assumed it was a super difficult process. I was pleasantly surprised when I finally built up the courage to make it. It’s really easy, and oddly fun.
To make Raw Almond Milk:
What you’ll need:
1 cup raw almonds
2-3 cups of water
vanilla extract (optional)
What you’ll need to do:
Combine almonds and water. Let sit overnight. Blend together and pour into a jar lined with cheesecloth/muslin/pantyhose. Let this separate the milk from the leftover almond chunks. Make sure to give the cloth a good squeeze when you’re done to get as much out as you can. Refrigerate and enjoy!
Gonna try this! Exciteeeed c:
My asics Nimbus.
After today’s run (recap later), the first one of the year!
5.4 Kms in 40 minutes.
Trying to write a tweet and every letter I put after the @ sends me in a shortcut to mention Dylan O’Brien. Is twitter trying to tell me something?
I am definitely going to ask for “To kill a mockingbird” because I want to have it with me so I don’t have to go to the library to get it every time I feel like re-reading it again.
I have to choose another one and I’m doubting between:
- The handmaid’s tale.
- The catcher in the rye.
- The grapes of wrath.
- Thre great gastby.
- The war of the worlds.
- Heart of Darkness.
- Moby Dick.
- The portrait of a lady.
I have read some of these books but only in Spanish. The others I plan to read this year. I want to know which one do you think would be an easy read for a non-native?
Does the concept rehabilitating surgery equalssurgical rehabilitation?
Why did I decide to do this presentation in English?
It’s seems like I’m back to my low point. But I don’t care. I had a chat with one of my best friends and I’m trying to recover from today. That means hard work tomorrow and the days after.
I’ll answer your ask tomorrow because I’m done for today. I’m going to work on that assignment and then go to sleep.
If any of you wouldn’t mind helping me please drop by my askbox.
Or if you have any questions or need to talk. You know you are always welcome here, right?
