"hey you! so i'm afraid you'll disappear for good.. are you still overwhelmed with work?"
HEY, loveliest! I AM STILL WORKING LIKE A (pretty well dressed and intelligent) SLAVE!! I don’t have time to do ANYTHING.
I still love everyone though, and I’ll probably post my 7 pages of porn soon to make up for my prolonged absence. You alright?
"can I ride you then"
If my fun you mean meetings and too much work and multitasking YOU ARE RIGHT, FRIEND
"I HOPE YOU HAVE A FUCKING GOOD DAY OKAY?!"
OKAY!!! I’M WORKING LIKE A FARM HORSE THO
Sun, beaches, coconut water and… Meetings?
"You could always introduce me new authors, reading is my safe haven. :) And no, it's not too serious, i'm feeling better now, just still weak. I hope you will solve that housing situation soon, it sounds a bit scary, not knowing where to stay in just a few weeks."
Hi! I’d recommend James Salter. the way he builds his sentences and describes people and places is just exquisite. I’m reading Light Years right now. And if you’re up for a big read, I’d recommend Murakami’s 1Q84. If you like his style, this book is the best he has ever done, in my opinion. :)
About my housing situation… I’m not scared. Not knowing the future on such a short term like this doesn’t make me anxious or insecure. It’s just how things are, and I don’t mind. I have other anxieties, of a different sort.
"are you gonna be participating in brittana week?"
IS THERE A BRITTANA WEEK IS THERE A BRITTANA WEEK
"No, it's ok. i figured already you must got busy and all. i just miss you. and i stuck at home all day long because i'm sick as hell and have too much time on my own i guess. so are you moving back to Brasil for good? i know you don't really like to share too much personal stuff but would you tell what kind of event are you organising?"
That’s not good. How about picking up some reading? I can suggest an author or two of my (recent) liking. I hope you’re not coming down with anything too serious, doll!
I actually don’t know. I’m going back to organize this event, that’s a two-week course on human rights, and after that…. Mystery. I have applied to a few things, but none have panned out for sure so far. I have no idea where I’ll be living in three weeks. I just know I’m not coming back to Uruguay.
"hey there, you are not around anymore. :("
Hey, darling!!!!!! I’m terribly sorry.
There are a LOT of things going on in my life right now — I was going to make a post about it today. I’m DROWNING with work, because the event I’m organizing is just a few days away. I’m going back to Brazil because the event is there, so I’m MOVING ABROAD this weekend. AND SO MUCH MORE. Ugh.
I have no time to breathe, let alone post here!!!! SORRY I SUCK
"Friendships worthy of the name are different. Their rhythm lies not in what they bring to us, but rather in what we immerse ourselves in. To be a friend is to step into the stream of another’s life. It is, while not neglecting my own life, to take pleasure in another’s pleasure, and to share their pain as partly my own. The borders of my life, while not entirely erased, become less clear than they might be.
Rather than the rhythm of pleasure followed by emptiness, or that of investment and then profit, friendships follow a rhythm that is at once subtler and more persistent. This rhythm is subtler because it often (although not always) lacks the mark of a consumed pleasure or a successful investment. But even so, it remains there, part of the ground of our lives that lies both within us and without.
(…)If we are to have friends, then we must be willing to approach some among our relationships as offering an invitation to build something outside the scope of our own desires. We must be willing to forgo pleasure or usefulness for something that emerges not within but between one of us and another."
