Today in Italian class the teacher made us watch this.

And I couldn't stop laughing. I'm a bad person. (And a bad student because I laughed for an entire hour)

You see, in my campus we have the "CineClub de las Américas" which is a movie club that projects movies from around the world every Tuesday. Last semester I couldn't be there because I had class at the same time for the projection, but this semester? I'm free!

So I'm planning on seeing every single one of the movies. Yayy!

This semester they started with: Goodbye Lenin! and God, that's one hell of a movie. If you can, don't miss the chance to see it. It's an amazing, hilarious, heartwarming film.
Here, have a trailer.


This girl has a point. You can't look down at others in order to accept yourself. You shouldn't judge others to feel better.
I've talked about this already in a past post. I realized I was being hypocrite for thinking of myself gorgeous while judging people that I, in some way, envied.

You can't.

You can't learn to love yourself by hating others. That's just another way of hurting, you are just reflecting what you don't like about yourself in others.

If you are fat and you don't feel okay with that, you can't mock think people and judge them by how they look under the false pretense of being concerned because "they don't eat".
If you are skinny and you want more curves, you can't make fun of fat people and criticize the way they look, again, under a false pretense of being concerned because "they eat too much".

The same goes for all kind of things. If you don't feel pretty you can't judge gorgeous people and say they are stupid. You can't feel better about yourself by laughing at someone who doesn't look like you.

Once you've learn that accepting others is a HUGE step of accepting yourself (And the other way around).
Once you've learn that people are people and what is important is what's inside and not outside.
Once you've learn to take your time to know new people, even if they make you feel insecure. To talk to them, to treat them as a person and not a menace or a reflection of your "faults":

That's when you learn to love yourself and others. To value people not as bodies but as human beings.

Today in self defense class I met the most gorgeous woman I've ever seen. She is tall, thin, blond, with great proportions and a beautiful face. She captured the eyes of men and women easily an everyone wanted to be around her.
I felt bad, wrong. I didn't liked to by in the same room as her.
Then she was teamed up with me. For a couple of seconds she was this gorgeous woman I didn't liked to see, nevertheless touch. After ten minutes of working as a team and helping each other up, I realized she is a fantastic girl. She's kind, humble and really damn smart. She knew way more than me and she was kind and patient.
After that, she was not just the gorgeous woman. She was a team member, someone I could trust. At the end of the class she was still gorgeous, but I was feeling okay because I knew that wasn't important. That she was way more than her looks, and I realized she feels the same way about me.

I get to talk to the school therapist.

Seriously I think it's time and she will help. I don't know if I'm overreacting but it's better to be safe that to be sorry, and I really believe that talking to someone like her about the things that bother me will probably help me to overcome them, or at least to realize that maybe those things aren't as bad as I think (Or maybe they actually are, and she can offer some help)

That said, let's go for the damned meme.

So, I have my class schedule for college.
It's a complete mess.

See that class at 7pm? Do you see it? It seems interesting. That's the reason I'm taking it, because it was completely voluntary.


And for the meme.

Day 06 – A song that reminds you of somewhere

No Estamos Solos - Eros Ramazzoti & Ricky Martin.

I'll have three months of vacations, so I'm ready to kill myself.

The sad part is that I'm not against spending three months of vacations on my city, I'm against of spending those with my family arguing the whole time.

Luckily for me I'll be able to study there on summer, so I'll have an extra month of classes and exercise (Tennis and Yoga, my Self Defense teacher won't be giving classes during summer, so I'll have to find something else)

Other than that, finished my second semester. I still don't know my grades but I guess they're good.

So, this is old and it's not the first time I see it.

It is, however, the first time I actually managed to read what the hell is happening, and it just made my day.

This is the funniest most random fight scene I've seen in my entire life.

Naked Fight!

You know what's hilarious?
Their expressions on the fourth page; They are clearly miserable, in pain and they are not enjoying their naked time.

It's awesome.

...You know what else is awesome?

Today a group of parents arrived to my dorms building to "check it out" and see if they'll leave their kids here.
They are now playing musical chairs and stuff outside my room. It's amusing.

I've been thinking (Not very hard, mind you) and I've decided that managing my money is a great idea.

Now that I'm actually doing it I get extra money and most of the time I don't know what to do with it, now I know.

Monday, Wednesday and Friday my first class is at 11:00am and I always get up somewhere around 8:00 or a bit earlier, I have almost three hours to spend.

This days I do things with calm, I wake up slowly (Banana Pancakes!) I do a couple of yoga exercises and take a bath (slowly) and then get dressed and eat breakfast while surfing the web.

Now I plan to use that extra money into taking a healthy breakfast, I want it and I'll take it.

So, for a little less than $5 (dollars) I'll be eating something between the lines of:

Two fried eggs (Sunny side up) tortillas an ham, with a side order of beams.
Fresh Papaya (Or any other fruit, really)

You have no idea how happy this makes me, I love a good breakfast!

Okay...My roomie is a very particular girl. She isn't exactly wise at the moment of saying stuff to people.
I mean she tries to say nice things and always be nice, but occasionally she'll say something plain offensive without realizing it.

Like a couple of minutes ago.

"Hey Ale, can you try this shirt? You have the same body as my brother so I want to see how it would look"


The fuck?

I know for a fact that even while thick I have a feminine body, so what the hell was that about?

Today I had to answer a couple of questions for the school. Questions revolving around interpersonal relationships.

There was a question that asked us to explain our relationship with other students, principally the ones that are in our groups.

This was my answer )

I'm curious about what the people reading this may think, so please, let me know your opinion.

Today, it was a great day.

My self defense classes are amazing...well, somehow amazing. See I'm convinced that a lot of the things our teacher is teaching us aren't exactly useful, or at least practical, but it's fun.
Now I can do things that I thought impossible (like running) and I actually enjoy it.
Today our teacher (Cap, end of the story) wanted us to make a "tiger jump" and I actually did...something like that. I mean, it wasn't exactly perfect, and I still need a mat to land, but I did what I could.

The Tiger Jump )

And in Yoga...

I managed to touch the floor without bending my legs.

I'm much more elastic now.

Awesome I tell you.

My legs hurt
My arms hurt
My abs hurt
My shoulders hurt
My thighs hurt


Dear God! I may enjoy my self defense classes (and yoga, and tennis) and I may be having fun thinking that my teacher is Cap, but I feel like I've been run over by a damned train.

To top it all, I'm covered in bruises and I can barely move.

It's so bad I think I'm enjoying it.

Yes; I'm studying self defense, tennis and yoga.

No, I'm not doing it to have a nice body and to be thin.

I'm doing it because:

a) I want to be able to take care of myself, and I've always enjoyed this kind of things.
b) I like Tennis; I like to beat the shit out of things, tennis balls included.
c) Yoga means balance, I want to balance myself, to improve my health and mind.

That's it. A nice body isn't part of my motivation.

My Italian teacher wrote something like this in my homework "Nice story, but you missed the point."

I think I'd never failed so hard in my life.

It's still better than the poor girl that did her homework so damn well that the teacher thinks she stole it.

I've just had my first self defense lesson.

It's...Hapkido of some sort, apparently.

My legs feel like jelly.

And now I have Yoga in less than an hour.

Hopefully I won't die.

And any other kind of serious sentimental relationship, seriously.

I don't want it.
I don't need it.

What is so special and tragic about that?

I mean, yes, it's been three years since I had a boyfriend (And that relationship was somehow abusive) and I don't really feel like having another, mainly because I don't really understand the fuzz about boyfriends (or the lack of one)

Yeah sure, hugs and kisses and love and sex and stuff. I get it, and actually it would be kinda nice in certain situations, but my life can't be revolving around someone, let alone a guy who will must likely fuck up after a while.

True, I might be scared to initiate a new relationship, and there's reasons for that. As I said, my last relationship could be considered abusive, and it's been so long since I actually dated or flirted or did stuff that I really don't know how to do it (I think I never knew to start with) but really? I just don't see the point.

Usually it doesn't bothers me. Hell, usually I don't think about it. But sometimes the theme will appear and then the shocked and somehow saddened expressions of other students will just turn the conversation into a discussion where I try to defend my point that "Relationships, specially at our age, aren't something as serious as you people believe, and certainly not as attention worthy"
I hate those discussions because I always end up being treated with something not unlike pity, which just pisses me off.
Or SDCA for short.

Anyway, I met three teachers today, two actually related to my major (The other is not, but we have to take that class anyway)


Introduction to Journalism )

Profession Writing )

Photography )

Italian )

Also, I'll be taking self defense lessons, tennis and yoga. Sounds good.

Anyway, Flist. What journals of your respective country would you recommend?
Anyway, my first day at college...Second semester though, the novelty is starting to wear off.
Read Moar! )
Yes, after a month worth of vacations I'm heading back to college for my second semester (Seeing as my first one was actually a success) This time I'll try to work even harder and get not only my scholarship, but a secure place in the double program...thing, in which I get to study two years in New Mexico.

Right now I just have to stand the sad looks of family and friends, who ask me to stay.  I wont, of course, but I still want to stay for a while longer. I mean, I'm quite excited at the prospect of returning and learning new stuff, but still, it's my family.
However the feeling is just stupid because I'll be seeing them every weekend, after all my university is quite close, less than two hours worth of driving, really.

My University has managed (Once again) to be accredited by SACS, which I think it's good.
Also, I'm happy for them because the whole administration had been quite paranoid and nervous about it, so there's that.

Also, I need to come up with better titles for my entries.
