One night a man had a dream.
He dreamed he was walking along the beach with the LORD.
Across the sky flashed scenes from his life.
For each scene he noticed two sets of footprints in the sand: one belonging
to him, and the other to the LORD.
When the last scene of his life flashed before him,
he looked back at the footprints in the sand.
He noticed that many times along the path of
his life there was only one set of footprints.
He also noticed that it happened at the very
lowest and saddest times in his life.
This really bothered him and he
questioned the LORD about it:
"LORD, you said that once I decided to follow
you, you'd walk with me all the way.
But I have noticed that during the most
troublesome times in my life,
there is only one set of footprints.
I don't understand why when
I needed you most you would leave me."
The LORD replied:
"My son, my precious child,
I love you and I would never leave you.
During your times of trial and suffering,
when you see only one set of footprints,
it was then that I carried you."

I'm not a religious person.
But I do believe that sometimes is not that bad to let yourself believe.

I've never wanted to be a psychologist.

I started that master's when i was 17 years old and only because Psychology doesn't have maths and because one of my friends was gonna go to the same school with me.

But actually, I never wanted to be that. In fact, I HATE PSYCHOLOGY.

But I was always "almost done"... "you did good maria", "it's just one more year"... all things like that people used to say to keep me studying and finish my career.


Yesterday I decided it had been enough of all this so I dropped school. Yes I DID IT.

And now I'm free.

Young, and i'm gonna be whatever I want but a psychologist.

I still studying tho, I'm gonna finish my master's on december but in another thing ( Dont know the name in english) that allows me to work as kind of a psychologist but only at schools... with kids. And THAT'S WHAT I WANT!.....

yup, I love love love love love doing whatever i want. I'm only wondering why this dessition took me so long.

For those who doesnt know me, I am not a person easy to excite..
Usually emotions don't show through my face, my body or my expressions... It could seem really hard to get me to smile but it's actually really easy.

There is one person that can get me to smile even when she think she's doing everything wrong. Even when i'm in a very bad mood...
I don't show it, of course, because i have this internal smile system that allows me to be smiling inside but crying outside :)
But today I feel my face could look like this forever

Not only because, as I've mentioned before, I LOVE GETTING MAIL, but also because this was a very special mail. I was excited about getting this for a lot of reasons, first because Louise was gonna get her AWESOME tinny hamster ball (we don't have small ones here, just the big ones and Louise is just a baby - cute little baby)... Anyway, I was excited about that, and Nick Jonas cd because is not coming to Argentina till July (yes, I DO LIKE the Jonas Brothers)... Also the cute scrapbook paper.... but mostly I was curious about what the letter in that mail was gonna say... And that was fine...

but inside Louise's ball there were tooonnnnsssss of little papers saying a lot of reasons why she loves me.

so I read them. How amazing is to realize that someone loves you even more than you love yourself?... To actually find that he/she loves you even for everything you hate about you?... no words.

I know we're having rough times with this long disstance relationship, I know we're both such an assholes sometimes... But I do love you more than anything in this entire world and I'm SO GLAD and happy you're in my life.

You are just a witness of change

This was my favourite story as a kid... and i guess it still being my favourite one. My mom told it to me when I was 4 years old, and I was crying thinking my world was gonna end that day.

I still remember every moment of my life I've needed to go back in time and try to remember my mother telling me the story

This week had been hard. new. different.

And I needed it. So here it is, I don't know if the translation is the best one, but it's the best I can do.

It is said an Eastern monarch once charged his wise men to invent him a sentence to be ever in view, and which should be true and appropriate in all times and situations.
" Is there a mantra or suggestion which works in every situation, in every circumstances, in every place and in every time. Something which can help me when none of you is available to advise me. Tell me is there any mantra?"

All wise men got puzzled by King's question. One answer for all question? Something that works everywhere, in every situation? In every joy, every sorrow, every defeat and every victory? They thought and thought. After a lengthy discussion, an old man suggested something which appeal to all of them. They went to king and gave him something written on paper. But the condition was that king was not to see it out of curiosity. Only in extreme danger, when the King finds himself alone and there seems to be no way, only then he'll have to see it. The King put the papers under his Diamond ring.

After a few days, the neighbors attack the Kingdom. It was a collective surprise attack of King's enemies. King and his army fought bravely but lost the battle. King had to fled on his horse. The enemies were following him. His horse took him far away in Jungle. He could hear many troops of horses were following him and the noise was coming closer and closer. Suddenly the King found himself standing in the end of the road - that road was not going anywhere. Underneath there was a rocky valley thousand feet deep. If he jumped into it, he would be finished…and he could not return because it was a small road…From back the sound of enemy's horses was approaching fast. King became restless. There seemed to be no way.

Then suddenly he saw the Diamond in his ring shining in the sun, and he remembered the message hidden in the ring. He opened the diamond and read the message. The message was very small but very great.

The message was - " This too will pass."

The King read it . Again read it. Suddenly something strike in his mind- Yes ! it too will pass. Only a few days ago, I was enjoying my kingdom. I was the mightiest of all the Kings. Yet today, the Kingdom and all his pleasure have gone. I am here trying to escape from enemies. However when those days of luxuries have gone, this day of danger too will pass. A calm come on his face. He kept standing there. The place where he was standing was full of natural beauty. He had never known that such a beautiful place was also a part of his Kingdom. The revelation of message had a great effect on him. He relaxed and forget about those following him. After a few minute he realized that the noise of the horses and the enemy coming was receding. They moved into some other part of the mountains and were not on that path.

The King was very brave. He reorganized his army and fought again. He defeated the enemy and regain his lost empire. When he returned to his empire after victory, he was received with much fan fare at the door. The whole capital was rejoicing in the victory. Everyone was in a festive mood. Flowers were being thrown on King from every house, from every corner. People were dancing and singing. For a moment King said to himself," I am one of the bravest and greatest King. It is not easy to defeat me.: With all the reception and celebration he saw an ego emerging in him.

Suddenly the Diamond of his ring flashed in the sunlight and reminded him of the message. He open it and read it again: "This too will pass"

He became silent. His face went through a total change -from the egoist he moved to a state of utter humbleness.

If this too is going to pass, it is not yours.

The defeat was not yours, the victory is not yours.

You are just a watcher. Everything passes by

We are witness of all this. We are the perceiver. Life come and go. Happiness come and go. Sorrow come and go.

Now as you have read this story, just sit silently and evaluate your own life. This too will pass. Think of the moments of joy and victory in your life. Think of the moment of Sorrow and defeat. Are they permanent ? They all come and pass away. Life just passes away.
There were friends in past. They all have gone.
There are friends today. They too will go.
There will be new friends tomorrow. They too will go.
There were enemies in past. They have gone.
There may be enemy in present. They too will go.
There will be new enemies tomorrow and......they too will go.

There is nothing permanent in this world. Every thing changes except the law of change. Think over it from your own perspective. You have seen all the changes. You have survived all setbacks , all defeats and all sorrows. All have passed away. If there are problems in the present, they too will pass away. Because nothing remains forever. Joy and sorrow are the two faces of the same coin. They both will pass away. Who are you in reality? Know your real face. Your face is not your true face. It will change with the time. However, there is something in you, which will not change. It will remain unchanged. What is that unchangeable ? It is nothing but your true self.

You are just a witness of change. Experience it, understand it.

My Best American Friend, her mail and her GIVEAWAY

So, the best thing we can do to make somebody happy is send mail. Yes, that's what I think. Probably because here in Argentina mail is not at all a common thing; we dont use it. Never. So nobody sends me anything here, no my friends or even my family that lives very far away from me. Well, I dont do it either, not to people in Argentina, we stick to calls and emails probably but usually calls. Is like in this country once you have phone there's nothing else you should use.
But yesterday, I GOT MAIL! and when that happens (always from my international friends) I'M THE HAPPIEST PERSON IN THE WORLD.

And this is what my friend JUSTINE sent me:

And of course i sent her something back:

about the giveaway, you really wanna go check that out here because is awesome!!!!!!!!
And also RASHA is having a surprise GIVEAWAY check it out here !!!

And the last thing I wanna share are the invitations for my bithday party (next month); this is how they're looking now:

Not done yet but tomorow I will post the complete process and how they look finished.

"I knew that there were no guarantees. no way of knowing what came next for me, or anybody. Some things don't last forever, but some things do... Dexter was a whole country away from me now. But I had a good feeling he would get to me, one way or another. And if not, I'd already proved I could meet him halfway"

Hate disappointment.-

I was trying to make something cute to put all my papers because they're always all over the place and I definetly don't anjoy mess, so I did this:

First you have to do is a base of cardboard (or paper only) and then yu have to cover it with newspaper and glue.

Then you can paint it any color you like and decorate it in the most creative ways. I painted it white and then add clippings from magazines.

I'm so excited because an Argentinian movie won an Oscar las night "Best international movie"... How great is that?..

Omg today was a very fuzzy day; can you imagine having a fuzzy day?... that's what happens when you go out to a club and get very drunk and then next day you wakes up early and you have to go for a walk, and have lunch and grocery shopping...
The good thing about all this day was that grocery shopping was PERFECT!... I sepend a lot of money on shit and I loved it.
So this are some of the library stuff that i got:  (I loooove post-it)

And then I started planning my 22nd birthday, which is gonna take place in Rio Grande, I'm gonna have a huuuuge party. For now I started making the guestlist:

Universidad de Buenos Aires (public school)

This morning was definetly an adventure. I went to the public University of Buenos Aires, so sign up my cousin to her calses for next semester. Let me say that schools in Argentina are nothing compared with the most horrible schools in USA. I go to a private school here in Buenos Aires, wich means you have to pay to go and get your title on whatever you wanna study; but we also have this school wich was suposed to be the most prestigious school in all latin america so many years ago; But now, as the years go by, as the society changes more and more and as the governments of our country don't give a shit about this school, this is what it has turned into:


The Entrance:

The Inside and a classroom (such a sad place to go to study):

The outside:

This is how clean they keep the place:

Students even sell stuff outside as if they where in some kind of public market or something like that:

Well, that's what I did today, now i'm just gonna scrapbook and watch tv. I just made a reservation for a ticket to go to my house on my birthday yyyayyyyy hopefully my dad would pay for that, otherwise I'll have to get my mom in a very good mood to get her to pay for it haha.
Seriously, the situation with that school made me feel so sad, sad for my country and sad for the posibilities we could have if our governments knew how to use them. Every day I feel more sure I want to leave this country.
