The things you discover

“Sometimes you just need a break up from routine.” This is the kind of statement we are used to hear all time, but never really practiced it. Until one day, one time, you’re sitting on an airplane about to go on a two-hour trip to your weekend destination and you think about all your first world problems and how in the end, nothing of that matters because you’re loved, you’re healthy and most of all, you’re so incredibly lucky to be exactly where you are. Alive. Life is not perfect and we should, all together, appreciate it a little more every time we step outside our doors. Without further ado, Merry Christmas everyone and have an excellent New Years Eve. Bring it on 2017.

Life lessons (or some of them)

Humans are complex creatures. There are many things you’ll keep improving all your life. Because the act of living is a constant act of learning. My family told me this last sentence all over again until it got into my head. As I grew up I understood more the depth of that truth. So I wrote an example list of work in progress statements (and some of them are lessons that were earned meanwhile): – Emotion is not a weakness. – Being polite is never enough to express a feeling. – Anxiety comes and goes like the weather. – People will always have opinions (either you like it or not). – Some people you’ve met in private will ignore you afterwards. – Food is love. – You can meet amazing people in unexpected places at unexpected times. – Some relationships will not matter. – Things will always get complicated unless you find the resources to stay within your truth. – Some people will care for you, but never love you for who you are. – …

Jobs and getting “there”

Jobs come in different forms and schedules. But every single one of them has a time frame in your life. The reward for your service is apparently converted into monetary appealing. After this process, you, the hard worker is the responsible for managing the money that you’ve earned. Being a creative human outside of the Hollywood industry, gives you a better sense of how to organize something with so little. You see, the trick is not to get sucked into buying things you don’t need. You also shouldn’t consume every entertainment product. It’s a waste of time. Be picky. Choose the information, entertainment and the art you want to get inspired by. Finally, be persistent. Organize yourself so wonderful things can happen (because you’ve worked hard for them) and then, you’ll grow out of it.

What nobody told me in school

The info on this post depends on your community background and also on where you studied. Back in the day in the early 2000’s I was just a kid starting to transition into a teenager. My conceptions about the world were very simplistic and in school, I was the average weirdo girl. My confidence was less than 0 but before you judge: yes, I was one of the bullied kids. No, I did not know what “bullying” meant at that time. No, I didn’t live my life depending on haters. Never. And that experience is still the perfect antidote to stay away from people with bad behavior. At this time, in school we got twice or (maybe) once a year a lecture about sexuality. It was a reminder for teenagers to use protection, have safe sex, that condoms prevent STD’s and other types of unpleasant things. The problem with these lectures was, in that time, the adults didn’t address other types of sex and how genders can be fluid. They didn’t explain gay sex or …

How to let it go

I wish I knew how to organize some ideas. Sometimes your brain is just full of excessive adrenaline. I try to make this website about my work, but also I cannot ignore my opinions or other types of creative material I produce. By the title of this post you expect me to describe an incredible personal moment, but instead of that I prefer to stick with the experience of being through that. I guess I never understood the concept of love as a disease. Until I couldn’t get over a situation, a metaphor, a presence. It took some time to admit it and to deconstruct what was wrong in my platonic world of possibilities. Since then, I feel that pieces of advice from the right people are the best medicine. It’s never who you want, it’s who you need. Don’t ever deny yourself from that support. Look for it. Do what you must do to move on. I believe that’s all I have to say on this 101 matter.
