You must be ready for surprises. No matter how boring your life may be there’s always a surprise to shake things up a little bit, even if it’s for a day or an evening.

On Sunday my phone rang. It was my brother, and guess what? He was in Rio! Actually he had been here for a few days but was busy doing stuff of his and couldn’t have called earlier. Anyway, we arranged to meet yesterday. Despite all my efforts (apparently in vain) to save money, I couldn’t have said no. My family is a mess, we’re spread through 3 different cities and even the ones in the same city are somehow still distant from each other, not exactly in distance, if you know what I mean… So, whenever you have a chance to enjoy some time, you can’t say no! And that’s what I did. We had a nice dinner last night in a nice bistro, then we went to the cinema where we saw a nice french film with the lovely Audrey Tautou. Money well spent, I must say.

Today I’m back to my boring routine, and you?

6 days at home

Last Thursday was a national holiday, so since everybody is lazy (including me) in this bloody country nobody worked on Friday. Today (Tuesday) is a regional holiday so, nobody worked on Monday either. The result? Six boring days at home!

Ok, not all days were boring (see my previous post), but I guess the final result was not good at all. I ended up arguing with her again, and I ended up going to the cinema, which I love and I hadn’t done that in a long while. The two films I saw were sad, depressive but somehow I like it. I keep thinking that by watching those kinds of things I will learn and be ready to face certain situations in the future. But then, I never learn or I’m always afraid of facing them, you know what I mean?

Having said that, it’s sad to say and admit that I’m indeed a lonely person. No matter how many great new friends I have, I turn out to find myself alone, doing things alone. What’s wrong with me? What’s wrong with the others? Am I selfish? I guess I could do years of therapy and I would never know.
