Life…

Every time I start writing, my biggest hidden feelings jump in (without being called) and my fingers start typing by themselves, and sometimes I can’t find good things to talk about. Unfortunately today is one of those days, but I made a promise to myself a long time ago that I wouldn’t type or write bad feelings or what is going wrong with my life. Instead I will only record good moments and happy days. This is what I’ll try to do today.

The best part of being in Brazil is meeting my friends. On Friday, me and 3 other girl friends went to a japanese restaurant (they had vegetarian menu) and it was the best meal I had since I got back, not because of the food (the place was VERY full and the service wasn’t great at all) but the company was worth it. Spending time with people you know since 5th grade is so relaxing, especially because you know that almost no one knows you that good, and nothing you say will be taken in the wrong way; sometimes you don’t even have to say anything. I can’t wait for next weekend!

Also, as always, I have been cooking a lot, and these past days I had the opportunity to try some whole-wheat baked eggplant and zucchini pastry, homemade soy strawberry/banana/orange juice ice-cream and stuffed sweet potato (eggplant&zucchini filling). Everything was very very VERY good! Being vegan is so great ๐Ÿ˜€ BTW today has been two months since I’ve became a veg. So nice! Especially because on Saturday I went with my dad to a brazilian “farmer’s market” and indulge myself with a lot of veggies and fruits. I’m packed for the week. My list included: Eggplants, zucchinis, carrots, sweet potatoes, 3 kinds of lettuce, tomatoes, regular potatoes, strawberries, bananas, pineapple and maracujรก. It was very fun, and we spend less than $15 (R$26)!!! Soooo cheap!

Well, I think what I’m trying to say is no matter how bad things are, you can always find the good side of life and have fun. Coming back to Brazil is being hard and I wanna go back to California as soon as possible but we can’t have everything at once and life is about suffering, so lets just try to make our best of it and forget about the bad moments. “Everything is gonna be alright”. I will accomplish my dreams, my parents will stop judging me and I will find a guy that I love and loves me back. Someday…

Best Wishes,

Agatha.

Bad day, good cooking…

You know those days when nothing goes right? Where even a walk is a dangerous thing for your mental health? Well I had a day like this today. But don’t get me wrong, I’m not those kind of people who like to talk trash about their own lives and to fell miserable, but today I can’t help it. Thankfully after a pretty crappy english class, I came home to take a nap (the best thing when you’re not feeling good), obviously I didn’t because my head was full of s***, but I decided to watch a good video that would help me to get through the day. It did, A LOT! And if you want to hear some good thoughts about life, please click here, I promise it will at least change your day.

After that, since I needed something to fill my mind with, I started cooking. It is the ultimate therapy! And since I had everything to bake a cake, that was choice. Blueberries cupcakes. It was fun, and helped me putting my mind off bad things and problems. I love when that happens. I even can talk to crazy ex-boyfriend now ๐Ÿ™‚

These are not mine, but it kinda looks like.

Best wishes! ๐Ÿ˜€

My dear Margarita…

I must say: I didn’t wake up happy today. After yesterday’s bash, I woke up feeling tired and not wanting to go to class at all. As a result, I missed my first class and did horribly in my Shakespeare monologue. My feelings didn’t get better during the afternoon either, and I spend 3 hours moaning to my friend (thanks for listening, Aline). THANKFULLY we decided to go out, and God knows there is no way to feel sad walking around beautiful Santa Barbara. Although drinking age in US is not something to be celebrated, today this wasn’t a problem. She ordered a frozen Margarita (my favorite drink in the whole world) and I whenever the waitress weren’t around, I had a sip of that delightful drink. Oh Margarita! By the end of the night everything was ok. Don’t you just love when that happens?

And of top of all we got invited to join three guys in another bar ๐Ÿ™‚ Not bad for a crappy day, huh?
