Yeah, you know it. You started a new job and were excited about the new opportunity and the novelty of it all, but as time passes and the novelty wears off, you realize your salary is crap, your boss is toxic, there’s no possibility to grow in the company and it’s not worth it to spend 3 hours on public transportation to go to work and go back home. It’s just not worth it. Continue reading
It’s been 161 days since my last post and I haven’t told you so many things that have happened, even before that!
So, I moved out of Venezuela. I came to Colombia on August 14th, 2016. But let me start from the beginning: Continue reading
Hey-lo! Long time no see! Blah blah blah, it’s been five months since my last post. Yeah, I’m lazy.
Well, yeah, I AM lazy, but that’s not why I had not updated (at least not the only reason). In all truth, I’d been really busy until February 11th, which is the day that I quit a job that made me really miserable (there’s a post about it, but since I was raving mad in it, I made it private) but long story short, that job made me miserable, and no salary is worth feeling miserable.

Yesterday we had to put down my dog.
His name was Oliver, he was 7 years old, and he was the noblest dog I’ve ever met. He never, ever, harmed any other creature, man or animal. He even left me take food out of his mouth. He’s a four legged angel now, I guess. All dogs go to Heaven. I’ll believe in Heaven for him. Continue reading
My dear friend Astolfo gave me a prompt, “There are five things everybody should know about…” The first thing that came to my dust filled mind was shoes, but when I sat down to actually write, well, things took a different turn. So, here it is.
There are five things everybody should know about being a teacher. A lot of people think it’s an easy job, clearly they don’t remember themselves as kids, and I’m sure they’ve never stepped into a classroom full of the screaming, dangerous creatures that they call their precious children. Teaching, though rewarding, is a very difficult, tiring and demanding profession, and the next time you plan to jump on your kids’ teacher and yell at her for whatever you think is a perfect reason, think about: Continue reading
Todos los años, TODOS, me propongo una serie de cosas a las que me apego cuando mucho un par de meses y cuando muy poco un par de días. Perder peso, hacer ejercicios, ser más productiva, aprender algo nuevo, son todas cosas que prometo que haré, pero inevitablemente la rutina, el cansancio y, para ser completamente honesta, la flojera, me alejan de mis propósitos. Quisiera decir que este año será diferente, que no caeré en el auto-sabotaje y que esta vez sí lograré mis metas, pero no soy tan optimista. Así que decidí hacer las cosas un poco diferente este año, y en vez de establecer metas para todo el año, lo dividí por trimestres: Continue reading
Hace años un amigo me prestó su Manual del Jugador de Advanced Dungeons and Dragons 2° Edición, y por despistada lo dejé en el salón de clase. Cuando volví a buscarlo me encontré con que una de mis profesoras quería tener una Conversación Muy Seria acerca de D&D. Continue reading
