Spent my entire day sending my CV all over the net. I'm beat. I think I'm gonna watch a movie now, just for some comic relief.

The results are out and I'm in! Yay me!

Uh... Okay, the results for USP's special students selection were out today, and I was among the few that got selected to attend classes. Well, I don't really know how to explain it, but I'm happy I'm in. Even if I don't know if I actually *want* to get a masters, at least now I bought myself six months in São Paulo to try and find a job, which is what I wanted in the first place, so, yeah, good.

Just booked my last hostel. *deep breath* As tired as I am, I'm gonna miss this. So, yeah, going to Valencia for two days. If I can find a boat trip to Ibiza, great. Otherwise I'm dropping by Alicante. It doesn't seem like Valencia has all that much stuff for me to do.

Tomorrow is my last day of classes. Having a written test and then a little oral exame I didn't really prepare. I decided to talk about "remakes" or something like that, and I got a few examples lined up, but I'm not 100% sure what exactly I'm gonna say or where I wanna go with that. But somehow I don't think it matters much anyway.

Tonight all the Brazilians that live in my residency (me included, of course!) went to a Brazilian restaurant for dinner. Oh, God. It had been soooooooooo long since I had had rice and beans! Gotta admit it was nice. The twist? Yeah, they are all living the day after tomorrow. As usual. :/ Well, I'm living a week after that, so I just don't care anymore. Ha.

The Heath Ledger thing? I'm still in shock. I read it almost 24 hours ago and I am still shocked. Even my teacher said *he* was shocked. And then tonight I read a stupid article quoting one of Heath's friends saying they saw it coming? WTF? I mean, if someone sees something like this coming, and it's their friend, how can they just stand still and not do anything about it? *is furious* I don't remember the source, but I prefer to think that the article is bullshit, though. Otherwise it would be just too sad. Anyway, I do believe the world lost a great actor. So sad.

...and I'm off to Italy. This year has been bittersweet. I'm kinda glad it's almost over, but I also feel like I'm gonna want to go back to parts of it from time to time.

So, I guess that's it for this year. I have no idea whether or not I'm gonna have internet in Italy, but it's not like I'm gonna spend my italian time online either so...

I wish you all a very merry Christmas and the best New Year someone could have. :)

See ya next year!

Minus freaking two celsius. And it's still November. What the hell? It's so cooooooooold!

My nose hurts and I don't feel like doing anything other than staying under my covers.

In other news, I still love Salamanca and we have a fun relationship, but I don't think I'm gonna fall as hard as I did for Paris. That was love at first (Tour Eiffel) sight. *sigh*

Oh, and I just have to say it: Vienna waits for me! In three weeks! Can't believe it!
unfloopy: Reese Witherspoon | fly (misc | can you see a butterfly?)
So... I'm in Paris! First thing I did here? Tour Eiffel, baby! And it's preeeeeeeetyyyyyy!!! I swear, I almost cried when I saw it. It was like "OMG I actually AM in Paris!" you know? *love*

I've been to the Tour Eiffel again (this time during the night) and Brazilians? It was lighted yellow and green. Really. Freaking unbelievable.

School is good, and I loved my class in the first week. This second week, though, not so much. But then again we're gonna have new people next week all over again and maybe I'll like them better?

Other than that... I freaking love this town and everything. The place I'm staying in is nice, very close to pretty much everything and the family is nice enough. :)

Is it too bad that, when I entered a church and saw all the glass window's shadows in the floor, I immediatly thought of Mars Investigations?

trips!

Planing trips is the most fun I have been having around here. I have three weekends left for Switzerland trips, and then I'm off to France trips! Wohoo! Actually, I might be going to France on my last weekend here as well, we'll see.

The one that's giving me the most headache, though, is the Christmas one. I'm this close to dropping the whole Contiki idea and just flying around, just because this way I might actually hit everything I want to.
unfloopy: Reese Witherspoon | fly (Friends | smile - nothing else is real)
I got to Switzerland today (yesterday, technically). It's so prettyyyyyyy! But it's also so very expensive.

I pratically falling asleep over the keyboard, so I'm just gonna go sleep now. Just wanted to post that little update before I left.
unfloopy: Reese Witherspoon | fly (10tIhay | laugh)
one I got a 100 in my french exam. Oui! I have no idea how I managed that --- I hated that exam ---, but it did get me all excited about studing french, so that's great.

two I bought a digital camera yesterday. :) It's a Sony W55. Seems pretty good so far. Still gotta buy a memory card, though. So I'll start picture-spams soon enough. lol.

three I'm so sleepy. I have no idea how I'm gonna manage to stay awake through the night.

four Don't ask me how, but mom and I managed to find good warm pijamas in this sunny city of mine, so that's another item out of my list. Yay!

five I'm trying to use my laptop and see if I still need something from my home computer while there's the possibily to tranfer things over. Something I'm missing, though, is a FTP program. Looked around for WS_FTP LE, which is what I used to have, but it seems like people don't use it anymore? What do you guys use nowadays?

Today's objective: tranfering all my music to my laptop. Currently I have around 20 GB of music and the biggest tranference dispositive I got is a 1GB pendrive, so, yeah, it's not that much fun. But you gotta do what you gotta do, right?

Just for the record, though... I have googled around the process and I gotta say people are making a much bigger fuss about it then they have to. I mean, all I have to do is move the files and then copy the library files overhidding the previous ones and bam! it's done.

yay!

I bought my plane tickets today! Yay! Well, at least the big ones (meaning the getting to Europe and getting back ones).

So I leave July 18th and I come back on February 4th. And right now it feels good. :)

Plus, my internet is working in full-mode and I've already downloaded both episodes I was missing of Studio 60 in about 2 hours, so all is right with the world today. Heee!
unfloopy: Reese Witherspoon | fly (Joan of Arcadia | closer to free)
Gah, my internet connection sucks. I can't download anything at all. Bad. Bad, I tell ya.

Went camera shopping with my mom and backpack shopping with my aunt and grandma today. Haven't made decisions on any subject yet. It's hard to ask for advice on backpacks, since I don't even have pictures of them, but how about the camera? Do I have any digital camera experts around? I starting to settle on a Sony W35, but maybe that's mostly out of the lack of options anywhere around this little city. Not that it's a bad camera, but... I don't know. Opinions? Anyone?

Got a Spanish test tomorrow and I haven't even opened the book yet. That's grand, huh?

ETA: Oh, yeah, I also bought a pair of boots! Hee!

#1. I'm having oh-so-many second thoughts on my whole Europe trip thing. I mean, I think it's gonna be amazing, but maybe, just maybe, I should be using that money to do something else, you know? Like the Columbia Publishing course I'm totally in love with. I don't know. Plus, I'm just so sick of all the burocracy. :/

#2. I have a huge to-do list looking right at me at this very moment. *sigh* So much stuff to do.

#3. I'm all caught up with work and that's so great. Can't wait to finish it so I can finally get paid!

#4. So, cellphone providers in Switzerland, France and Spain. Any comments? I need something that doesn't need a big commitment, since I'll only be using each service for a couple of months. And I'd rather have a pre-paid phone (this does exist outside of Brazil, right?) and good deals on international sms. lol. Yeah, because international calls are extremelly expansive, but sms are not so bad --- at least that's what my search seems to point at so far.

Progress has been made on the bike thing. Now I can actually do it all on my own, even starting it, which was the biggest accomplishment of the day. But it sort of gave me a third knee. I swear today's big fall was so huge, my knee has doubled it size. Enormous bruise. Dad says it's sign I'm actually learning. That's good, then?

I almost feel like a need a bike-related icon. Will consider it. Can't think of any movie or tv scene featuring a bike, though, with the exception of City of Angels, which is a movie I like just fine, but don't love enough to deserve an icon, you know?
unfloopy: Reese Witherspoon | fly (Heroes | yay!)
My dad got into the teaching me how to ride a bike thing as well. Which is great, because he's actually strong enough to help me (unlike my mom) but it's also bad, because he's way more pushy than my mom, so he is actually making me work hard until whatever objective he decides I have to accomplish for the day. So today that meant an hour and a half of practice time. Bright side is: I actually made some progress today. Yay, right? I managed to ride a little on my own and not fall flat on the floor, so I think that's good.

So meanwhile, my mom stayed home and worked through our clothes for cold weather so my brother and I can pick what we want to take in our trips. Except that we have almost nothing, and the little stuff that we do have are from when I was, like, 12, so there's not much (read: almost nothing) that feats me or my brother. And that means shopping! LOL. However, shopping in Natal for this kind of clothes is unexistent, so I'll probably have to buy stuff when I get there.

I never learnt how to ride a bike. Big deal. Apparently, it is to my mom, because she thinks it's her fault. She got this idea on her head that I just have to learn it before my europe trip. So she bought a bike and has taken me to parking lots to try and teach me twice now and you know what? I never learnt this because I always sucked at stuff like this. Gaah. I have a bruised knee and I'm not even close to getting how to do it.
unfloopy: Reese Witherspoon | fly (Joan of Arcadia | you can lean on me)
Things have been fine. I've been trying to figure out logistics of my little trip and stuff. I don't know. My dad might "visit me" in europe at some point, not sure when yet.

So, the TV season is over. Most of the finales where underwhelming, though. Oh well. I'm not in much of a TV discussing mood anyway, so I guess I'll just let it be.

Oh, I watched Pirates of the Caribbean 3 and, honestly... I didn't like it. For me, the first one was completly awesome, the second was kinda good, but this third was just okay. Bummer. I was so looking foward to it.

Vanessa da Mata's concert tonight! Woohoo! That's gonna be fun.
unfloopy: Reese Witherspoon | fly (Friends | sky blue and black)
Dad asked me to wait for him tonight to make final decisions on my europe trip, but it's almost 10 and he hasn't got home yet. I guess it's a good thing that my friends cancelled on me already, or I'd be having to cancel right about now.

ETA: Never mind. It's 10:10. Dad just got here.
