So I got this job teaching English at a summercamp in the Costa Brava (Palafrugell, if you know where that is, I just spent a week there and I’m none the wiser). I wasn’t going to do it and I didn’t call them to check when they didn’t call when they said they would but they called Friday and said: someone can’t make it, wanna come? And I was pissed at everybody here (I am today as well, pretty much) and there was no internet so being here seemed pretty pointless and at least at the camp they would pay me for making me unhappy, you know? It took foreeeever to get there and cost about 20 bucks, so between going and coming back I lose a whole day’s payment out of 8). It’s a 24 hour post, like, it says so in the contract and all and pretty much the most exhausting job I have ever had. Not to mention all the other monitors are raging extraverts, as are most of the kids, and at the end of the day I just kinda wanted to lock myself in the toilet with my phone for at least an hour. Only, the day ended at around 1am and started at 8.30am and so I only had energy to shower off the sitting-in-the-floor and general sweaty state the weather and clothing regulations left me in and fall into bed. My family won’t believe that everybody kept asking me to raise my voice more, after a lifetime of being told I’m loud this was unsettling (but true, the other did that projecting thing from Imagine You and Me). Oh, it was also Catalan immersion, I totally didn’t remember how in Girona regular people speak Catalan all the time, although I think these being upperclass people had something to do with that. Lots of them believed me when I said I understood them perfectly and just talked to me in Catalan but a few switched when I went: “What?” at their sudden questions, (wasn’t listening # didn’t understand). I taught the kids basic Argentinean so I didn’t have to remember to call remoras and ojotas something else. Not very sure how much English they learned, it was profoundly chaotic, I had this one group with a fifteen year old who had taken the First the previous week and a 12 year old who didn’t remember the use of “do” in the present simple and the policy was “do whatever you want with them, here, have this totally random dossier full of crossword puzzles and pictures and some sentences to translate and not even a teacher’s book with the answers.” The other two teachers planned lots of games (I tried to help but frankly, I barely remember going camping as a child and I didn’t know any of the games, I did translate everything they asked for really fast?). There were lots of good bits, like the kayak was fun, we went to the beach with the kids and the ones supervising the activity said I could do it if I wanted to, I also tried windsurf and promptly fell into the water, after which I kinda got a headache. I wasn’t very happy about all the walking we had to do or the stairs, omg, there were so many staircases! And I was hungry all the time so I don’t even think I lost weight because of all that painful exercise or anything (summercamp food = not very healthy or yummy, you end up eating lots of bread).There were also stripteases aplenty. I know, no the thing one expects of summercamp but the boys kept finding reasons and ocassions to perform them and you know how boys are, they got competitive and upped the ante. There were this pair who kept dancing close together and undoing each other's belts and then ended the number with a finger on each other's lips in a sort of "no need to say anything" gesture that was EXTREMELY GAY.

The reason there was no internet, though, I was forgetting, is that my family (sans Mijal, who's in a room in Barcelona) has moved to Sant Quirze del Valles (next to Terrassa). I might take pictures and post them later.

I'm book 3 of the Song of Ice and Fire now but I keep accidentally reading spoilers, there's so many subplots that it doesn't really spoil the books much, tbh.

Which Song of Ice and Fire series by George R. R. Martin character are you?

Tyrion Lannister

19% Just, 17% Adventurous, 75% Intelligent, 71% Crafty and 61% WellMannered!

Tyrion is a misshapen dwarf nicknamed "The Imp" and "The Halfman". He is a personal favorite character of George R. R. Martin. Though Tyrion has talent for political maneuvering, he receives little respect from his father, Tywin, because of his deformity, sharp tongue, penchant for whoring, and the death of his mother during his birth. He is capable of cruelty to his enemies, but also has great sympathy for fellow outcasts and the mistreated.



Tyrion. Ok, yes, he is the one I’m more like. Maybe not the one I admire the most but the one I understand better, for certain. A good person in a world where being a good person is a Bad Idea and will Get You Killed, forever an outcast and longing to belong. The beast with more beauty between than either of his gorgeous siblings. With the wits to get things done and the moral compass more or less pointed North to the right thing if circumstances permit.

 The Song of Ice and Fire Personality Test

Your result for The Song of Ice and Fire Personality Test ...

Robert Baratheon

You scored 160 Adaptability, 280 Humor, 220 Integrity and 130 Activity!

I sit on the damn iron seat when I must. Does that mean I don't have the hungers as other men?


Your are Robert Baratheon.


While you are not afraid to take on serious responsibilites, the fact remains that you'd rather not. Who wants to worry his or her life away when there's food to be eaten, alcohol to drink, and people to have fun with (and in so many ways, too)? You like to have as much fun as possible, regardless of the consequences. Though you're generally high-spirited, you are prone to react to bad situations with anger. You are lazy, confident, and jovial.


You are also similar to Theon Greyjoy and Edd Tollett. Your polar opposite is Daenerys Targaryen.

IDEK. Robert? A SP through and through? I just…

1. I guess it's my fault for expecting better from popular music, but how can there still be blatantly sexist songs like "Daughters" (John Mayer) being written today and loved by both sexes? (This one fucks up everybody, boys are tough and can take it, girls are delicate flowers necessary for the boys to be human) and Demi Lovato is covering it and millions of kids are going to listen to it and WHY ISN'T anybody saying anything? Ok. You can go read the non-ranty part of this post.

2. Erin and me both love this song, especially the line "we both maniacally laugh and like all the same stuff", the woman's voice is actually pretty good.

3. Found an awesome website that converts youtube vids into mp3 for you.

4. Another personality test, according to which I'm very disaggreable and very open to new experiences (what can i say? people keep messing up) :

I'm a O88-C30-E48-A4-N14 Big Five!!

5. Booked the train tickets to go the town of books, Hay on Wye (/hei on wai/) in Wales next weekend (28-30). Verena's coming with me (after much procrastination) and we're staying in a farm. For some reason this does not mean I get to go horse riding (it's probably for the best since I'm spending enough money as it is, and that's not even counting the fact that is a town made of bookshops with really cheap books AND I'll be coming back by train so there's no weight limit.

6. Podfic and a random add I caught on TV are making reconsider watching House again. Mostly it's tv show withdrawal, Supernatural is over, Castle too, Glee has only 3 episodes to go (and the last couple haven't made me happy at all).Art + Poems )

That means 363 characters per minute in English versus 320 in Spanish. Maybe I will get better this year, taking two classes in Spanish and one in Catalan in which I write in Spanish because I'm also taking two classes in English (don't type much in either, really) and an introductory class to Italian and I really don't want to have a nervous breakdown over multilingualism.

University life is still hectic but I'm getting used to it once again (when I'm completely settled it will be time for Christmas holls, clearly) and today I found the time to put Pride & Prejudice in my mp3 and now I can listen to Elizabeth and Darcy bicker all day long. *glows* Besides that, I felt like memeing, so here it is, pass by if you shall :)

The film(s) for His Dark Materials by Phillip Pullman are getting done! *jumps around* I loved those books, especially the first and second one as I *spoilers ahead* have some ideological and personal issues with the ending*, and although the girl playing Lyra doesn't seem so great and it's her first time acting but Nicole Kidman as Ms. Coulter is a truly inspired choice, so I think they should be alright. They have a test to tell you which your Daemonion is, I really don't think it makes any sense to say I'm modest as the test claims but the animal seems to change later and I wanna see ^^.

Also, for those who had the number, I lost my cellphone. I'm supposed to get a new card and a new oen soonish but meanwhile...

So I was re-reading "Eclipse" by Mijan, teh HarryDraco genficslash classic and I re-re-re-discovered this song's lyric and it's so pretty I had to share, it's not complete, just to give you a taste:

I've built walls,

A fortress deep and mighty,

That none may penetrate.

I have no need of friendship; friendship causes pain.

It's laughter and it's loving I disdain.

I am a rock,

I am an island.

And a rock feels no pain;

And an island never cries.

(~Simon and Garfunkel)

I wear glasses or contact lenses. × I love to play video games. × I've tried marijuana(only hashis, tasted like smoke)
I've watched porn movies. × I have been the psycho-ex in a past relationship.  (er...no. Do psycho-exes believe they are psycho-exes?) I believe honesty is usually the best policy.  (only in relationships. Lying to strangers is dandy.)
I curse sometimes. × I have changed a lot mentally over the last year. × I carry my knife/razor everywhere with me.  (>.> Si haces esta SABES que sos el psycho...)

Lupin - Defense Against the Dark Arts

Harry Potter: Which Hogwarts professor would you be?
brought to you by Quizilla

I havent posted here in ages, or so it feels...I'm not really that busy with university, i have just six classes, two times a week each(hour and a half each) and now that i don't take half a day to get there it's actually quite amenable. Maybe i'm not studying enough, scratch that, I'm not studying enough, but after a life of lazyng around it's improbable I will suddenly turn into a (text-)bookworm so nothing new.

Yesterday one of my new brothers(I've gotten two just by moving in here, I'll be afraid to rent rooms forever more) took me around Barcelona, it was wonderful. We were just walking around a bit after I helped him move into a room he rented around there but it reminded me why I love this city. *sighs* I need to get out more, it's just no fun to do it by myself, i mean, for a while yes but... I think sight-seeing is something i'd rather share, seeing as otherwise i start talking to myself... There were lotssssssss of turist, course, but we also were in the old zones of the city, the Cathedral and whatever, really bohemian-like or something. While i was waiting for him I watched how a girl painted the door in a shop that uses garbage to decorate and there were all these food-places from everywhere... I imagine New York like that, "a mixed pot of all cultures"

There was this shop of antiquities god knows where that requested a clerg who spoke English so i'll be calling(if i ever find the card i took)

So, anyway, anybody alive? [livejournal.com profile] anaranta I havent heard of you for ages, university keeping you busy?

Oh, and my PC hasnt survived unscated it's encounter with Sharon, i cannot install anything and are planning to delete everything and stard anew(after saving everything in the other disk, who did you took me for?), i already changed it's name, i've always named them female and i thought maybe i was interfering with it's real gender identity and that's why it was such a bitch, but also, i wasn't so sure so I just made it to the middle and re-named it Ganymides XDD.
That's why i don't have messenger and have to go home tomorrow. Maybe in the train i'll get some work done too...

The Window Shopper
Random Gentle Love Dreamer (RGLDf)

Loving, hopeful, open. Likely to carry on an romance from afar. You are The Window Shopper.

You take love as opportunities come, which can lead to a high-anxiety, but high-flying romantic life. You're a genuinely sweet person, not saccharine at all, so it's likely that the relationships you have had and will have will be happy ones. You've had a fair amount of love experience for your age, and there'll be much more to come.

Your exact opposite:
The Stiletto

Deliberate Brutal Sex Master
Part of why we know this is that, of all female types, you are the most prone to sudden, ferocious crushes. Your results indicate that you're especially capable of obsessing over a girl you just met. Obviously, passion like this makes for an intense existence. It can also make for soul-destroying letdowns.

Your ideal match is someone who'll love you back with equal fire, and someone you've grown to love slowly. A self-involved or pessimistic woman is especially bad. Though you're drawn to them, avoid artists at all costs.

BEWARE: Genghis Khunt

CONSIDER: The Maid of Honor, The Peach, The Window Shopper

Isn't this lovely? It sounds like I'm a total Gryffindor. My choosen words were: Intellectual, original and rational and the thing tells me I'm rash, gentle and random...WTF?

Tonight I salivated freely over "The quick and the death", which is a great movie(I think) and has delicious actors, my personal favs were DiCaprio(He acted so much like Draco it was scary!!!) and Sharon Stone, who was the protagonist and is totally great, I want to see more movies with her in it.

A song in Spanish I like. This host is cooler because though you can only update till 50MBs it is permanent.

In RL news, I signed up for the university at distance, I also finally dragged my arse to Girona and got my selectivity grades…and I’ve to say I’d ask for a revision if I didn’t think it was too late because see here:
Català: 5,5(Actually more than I managed to get in all my years studying the language)
Castellano: 6(I messed up with the vocabulary, no, really, it was a weird surrealist text about a this weathercock that killed lizards and a boy who made ink with their dried skin…But all in all is believable, the grade, not the story, 'course)
And here it comes: Philosophy: 5,5(WTF????????? The thing is, I had an 8 as Philosophy’s media and I really love the subject to bits, it’s FrUsTaTiNg)
And to add to that…History of art: 7. And you wonder why I’m cross? I failed the first two trimesters and didn’t study at all except for re-reading my own text commentaries of about 8 art works of the 100 that where tested.
English: 9. I wonder what I did wrong because I finished so early I revised like four times and the listening(if annoying) was really easy(is my weakness so..o.O) I’m thinking it must have been my atrocious calligraphy.
Latin: 5. Will wonders never cease?
Greek: 4,5. Now, this is more reasonable, it must have been all because of the mythology and culture part.

Termine “Mi vida entre los muertos” de Serge Brussolo(pobre tipo, ese apellido…) es una novelita de ciencia-ficción de la que no esperaba mucho pero dio mucho más que “La velocidad de la luz” de Javier Cercas de la que tras enamorarme de la peli y las primeras páginas de “Soldados de Salamina” había esperado bastante y no he logrado acabar, demasiado autobiográfica, me aburre y aunque acabará interesantemente no tiene sentido perder el tiempo con algo que no disfruto.

What Yaoi Stereotype Are You?

brought to you by Quizilla

This is a great problem of mine, see, I consider myself pretty(yeah, egocentric, whatever, I look at mirrors, normal mirrors and have a selective taste but do think what you please) and I do judge people(usually males, but now females too) by their aspect first just because it`s the first thing I see, I don’t look at all like I am(which is kinda nerdy in Abel`s opinion) so I worry people are going to judge me ONLY by the way I look when while it`s nice to have a nice cover I prefer the actual book`s to be interesting. Maybe that`s why I act really weird sometimes. Of course I know I`m acting weird(mostly, not when I`m sitting on a broad window`s hill on summer because it`s hot in the classroom and get reprieved) but I`m being myself, sincere, being practical but original(like the time I avoided that great great idiot who I named “La cosa” by walking from desk to desk) and well…admittedly, I like people`s stunned expressions.

You're a Slytherclaw!: By nature you are rational
and a realist. Some people may call you cynical
and elitist but this doesn't matter to you. You
don't depend on other people's opinions to
determine how you live your life. You are
generally cautious and prefer to weigh the
consequences before you act. In conflicts you
prefer to remain neutral and aloof. You value
intelligence and you are a natural diplomat,
you can convince people to do what you want
them to do. Your weakness is that you sometimes
think more with your head than with your heart
and it leads to isolation. With the
intelligence of a Ravenclaw and the subtlety of
a Slytherin you will be sure to achieve all
your goals!

You are a RAVENCLAW!

As a Ravenclaw and as an NTP, you are intellectual,
independent, and value excellence in yourself
and in those around you. You have a strong
sense of curiosity, and in general can see many
aspects of a single issue or debate. You have
a strong drive to acquire knowledge and set
very high standards for yourself and those
around you. You enjoy being challenged, and
can accept constructive criticism without
taking it personally. You are probably at
least somewhat unconventional, and will not
usually follow authority for its own sake;
instead, you will consider the issue at hand
and make a decision for yourself.

Now, I was reading Pandarus journal and found this meme, I know I haven’t instilled the notion in you all that Lj comments should be not only read(assuming) but answered, but that`s the idea with this, whatever questions you wish to answer. Anyway, I`m posting a sketch of Pansy, I still need time and software to colour it^^ ¿is it worth the effort?

Who are you?
Are we friends?
If we've met, when and how did we meet?
What social event or place would you like to go to with me?
Would you kiss me?
Describe me in one word.
What was your first impression?
Do you still think that way about me now?
What reminds you of me?
If you could give me anything what would it be?
How well do you know me?
When's the last time you saw me?
Ever wanted to tell me something but couldn't?
Are you going to put this on your blog and see what I say about you?

So here I present you with: Pansy Parkinson, a character with not actual canon personality whatsoever(except some random nasty comments and a clingy nature respect to Draco) and described nothing like this but popular due to the cute actress that represented her in the Harry Potter movie. My Pansy is not very cute at all but that’s okay because the canon Pansy is not supposed to be pretty at all, she is a bit masculine and rebel and that’s what I see for now…. I will try to paint it, if you do think is worth the effort…

Your Birthdate: May 11

Your birth on the 11th day of the month makes you something of a dreamer and an idealist.

You work well with people because you know how to use persuasion rather than force.

There is a strong spiritual side to your nature, and you may have intuitive qualities inherent in your make up, too.

You are very aware and sensitive, though often temperamental.

Although you have a good mind and you are very analytical, you may not be comfortable in the business world.

You are definitely creative and this influence tends to make you more of a dreamer than a doer.

I don’t believe in horoscopes but seemed fun.
