At this rate, I'd look flawless too!

What a Great Car!

What I love about my car is that I never know if it'll start. I don't even have an old car, it's a Ford Focus 2000, but it comes with the option that if it doesn't feel like just won't do it...and today it didn't feel like it anymore. I went to the gas station after taking a final exam from 1 to 2pm without having lunch (you can imagine that I already was in a GREAT mood) and when I tried to start the car....nothing! The guys at the station were really nice, and they were able to start it, but damn it I'm tired of it...

One time Husby thought I was stupid when I called him and told him that I couldn't insert the key into the no no, the ignition had broken...It has another fun option, when I open the front passenger window, instead of going straight down it goes down and sideways (kinda hard to picture...that's how cool my car is) and when I close it it goes back up by rotating back to the straight original position.

I won't extrapolate about the fact that one of the back doors doesn't open anymore...I guess I need a new car!

Lost Friendship

I have been having a hard time making friends since I have arrived in the States 5 years ago. I don't seem to be able to meet people, and if I do, we don't get along enough to actually become "friends".

The only person who I considered my friend was F. She is French like me, and when we met it was like meeting somebody really special. You know that person with whom you can talk for hours and hours and never have that awkward moment where you look for something to talk about. We didn't see each other often, but when we did we had fun.

F has had a hard life, and I slowly realized that i was mostly listening to her talking about her problems rather than having 2-way discussions. Everything went down when I got married. She couldn't make it to my bachelorette party because it ended up being too late (it was a Thursday night), but worst of all I didn't hear from her until one month after the wedding when she invited me for her birthday (We had a really small wedding with only Husby's family.) Needless to say that I was disappointed and upset.

When she sent me an e-mail for Thanksgiving last year, I replied, and we started talking again. I was ready to forgive her and move on. Last February was the last time we talked, I spent 45 minutes listening to her problems without being able to say anything...that's when I drew the line. I decided not to call her again.

I thought about her quite often. She had told me that she thought that she was going to get engaged soon, so I wondered how she was doing....I missed her. She never called...until last night. She is leaving to Australia. She wants to see me before she leaves...she sounded upset.

We are seeing each other tomorrow. I am upset that our friendship failed. I wonder what has happened in her life, I am looking forward to see her tomorrow probably for the last time....

All that just to say that it sucks not having anybody that you can call a friend. Somebody that you can call when you are upset, when you want to complain or just talk about the funniest thing that happened to you today. Somebody to have a girl talk with.

Boring Template?

Did I really hear you say that? First of all it's not nice for all the other bloggers who have adopted this template and are totally happy with it, and second I don't think that it's that bad...and I don't have time to edit it so it'll have to do for now.

New Job Title?

Remember my brainless job ? Yeah, well I went from not doing much, to handling anything that has to do with money in the company, because we parted ways with our controller and I am taking over his position (with the help of other co-workers to get me started).

I don't know if I should cry or dance! I am happy because it evidently means that I will be doing more interesting things and learning a lot, but I wonder how I am supposed to keep doing what I was doing before, add another person's full time job to that, and don't forget to juggle 4 classes with all that!

I think that I am stressing myself too much, and that I will learn quickly and be able to handle it, but I don't think that I will be taking the 4 classes that I initially wanted to take next semester.

It is a big step for me, although not necessarily in the direction that I expected..., but I believe that learning new things is good, and it can only be valuable.

Sometimes when you wonder what decisions to make the answer comes to you instead of you having to actively search for it....I'll let you know how everything goes.

Blog Template

I am really frustrated because:

1. I REALLY liked the way my blog looked and now the link to the original template is broken, so I have to look for another one
2. I can't find a look that I like
3. I could pick a simple one and edit it, but I don't have the time....

hopefully I'll find the time to make my blog look crispy again soon...
