eelend's 2007

eelend PRO 8:11am, 2 January 2007
So here it is. 2007 has arrived and I feel it's going to be a good year for me. Better than 2006, at least.
I think I needed some kind of change, some kind of rebirth. I don't know if this new year will give me the change I need, but I think it's beautiful starting a year (365 days, wow!) and I'm excited.

I'm glad I spent Christmas with my family, and here they are. Only dad is missing, but well. Next year, we'll see him in this picture:

Last day in Barcelona.
Surprisingly, I didn't sleep much. So I had breakfast, had a shower, packed and read comics until Pere woke up.

Marie (Pere's exgirlfriend, German, musician, a smart, nice and beautiful girl) cooked and had lunch with us (baked vegetables –is it correct? I don't know– with alioli sauce, and avocado, endive and apple salad yum, yum). Marie gave a comic book written in German and it touched me so much :)

After lunch, I caught the train and came back to Madrid. It was a long but nice journey, I was reading and listening to music all the time.
So great.

Well, well, well, Monday again.
Cleaned the house, had breakfast and had two hours of German class. I thought it'd never end :(

And came to work. And it's been horrible because there wasn't anything to do and I've been aaaall afternoon doing nothing.
Not very interesting, huh?
I feel very tired and I just want to go home and fall asleep.

Good night to you all.

I had a great day at the lab, though, and I came back home in time to cook and get some things fixed. And, when I came to work, I found that Jaime's and Adriana's wedding invitations were (at last!!!) printed!!! They're sooooo beautiful...

Such a great day.
Woke up late, picked up the photographs I took in Easter (I know, I know, I wasn't in a hurry), did some shopping (some books, two CDs and a beautiful orange dress –which is such an strange thing, because most of my clothes are black, but hey, I liked it)...

I had dinner at an Italian restaurant (gourmet salad and taglianini with pesto and tomato; delicious!!!!) with Iván, Jaime and Rodrigo, my friend Adriana's brother, who's in Madrid visiting her.
We were together until 4 am, more or less, and then I came home, because I was almost dead by then. But it was worth it :)

Woke up early on a Sunday!!!! :O But I had to. Max, Gonzalo, Iván and me went to the "rastro", a place from Madrid full of stands with all kind of things: books, clothes, cameras, cds, antiques... most second-hand.
It's a typical place here, but I must admit I don't like it very much. Too many people, too many shouts, too many things you can not always see... That's why I've only been there twice since I came to Madrid (and people can't believe me, hahaha).

But it was a nice morning. We went to a proffesional photo shop and Max bought a new lens for his camera. I just had a look to the flashes. I must buy one for my F100, but I won't get my salary until Monday or Tuesday, so I can't afford to it now.

After meeting Teresa, Max's girlfriend, and having some beers with her, we came back home. I was tired and I had a lot of things to do. But I did them. And I had time to read, watch some TV and cook.
Jeez. I was dead when I got into bed, but hey, I felt like Supergirl ;)

Monday again. But a good Monday, because Tuesday and Wednesday are holiday :D:D:D soooooo I won't have to work and I'll be able to rest and do some things I have to do.

I went to the Retiro park with Jaime, Adriana, her brother Rodrigo and this one's friend Raul (he's coming to Madrid in October, because he wants to study and work as a Film Director). It was a shot walk, because it started to rain and we had to go to a café until it stopped.

And I had dinner with my friend Ruth and some of her friends. I played a bit with Ruth's son, who's five and looks like a little man, and, when he went to bed, we had an interesting chat about a little bit of everything (but, basically, about Cuba's situation, because one of Ruth's friend is cuban and we were curious about what's life like in that country).

At 1 am, I went to Jaime's and Adriana's home, because I wanted to say goodbye to Rodrigo and Raul (they're leaving on Tuesday morning). Iván was already there and we were playing poker and talking until 4 am.


Strange night, isn't it? I was with so different people in two different places doing so different things... I felt like I was zapping :D:D:D But it was really great!

I slept like a baby. I woke up at 12 pm, so I had a shower, took the figures I had bought in Barcelona and went to Gran Vía. I found there my kendo mates and we went to a Japanese Restaurant (I liked it, but I prefer Chinese food).
We spent the afternoon at David's and Montse's home, laughing and chating, and drinking coffee :P

And I had a relaxed evening at home with my little monster :) I watched "Paris, Je t'aime" (which is ok; I think some of the stories are a bit silly, but I liked most of them) and I went to bed. Sooooo relaxed.

I spent my day reading "Esta historia", by Alessandro Baricco, that's all. Oh, and I watched TV after dinner.
Nice day.

Holiday!!!!!!
I went to the zoo with my photo classmates and we took a lot of pics of the animals. I must say I found it very depressing. They looked sad and it was obvius that they didn't like being there. It was the first I was at a zoo and I think I'm not going to come back again (unless I have an enormous plane to take them all back to their place).

I came back home and I had a German class. And, surprisingly, my teacher told me she had a friend that was "perfect for me" (???) and she wanted to arrange a blind date for us.
I admit I was shocked. People want me to meet the boys they find for me, and I can't understand it. I don't use to take the liberty of looking for "possible" boyfriends for my friends, and I don't like people to do that for me.
Specially because I'm fine the way I am. Why the rest of the world can't understand I can be happy and alone (I mean, without a boyfriend)?

Anyway. I'm laughing. It's not so horrible.
It's just that I don't understand it. And I'm not going to have that blind date.

And it was a good day :)
