The last one.....:(

I have a lot of things that are precious to me, because they make my life worthwhile. But sometimes I do not give these things the importance they have, until I lose something, or until I know that it is not going to happen again. I think that this is the moment when I am really conscious of what I had or what I felt. In despite of this, I think I know how to live in the moment, enjoy it, and value the precious things in my life. Some of them are my memories of people I have met in many places, and good experiences that I have lived. I also have material things I consider precious, but the biggest ones are in my thoughts, when I stop to remember them!!

Time by myself

I think everybody needs time for themselves. I completely agree with you Ana.
I love to stay with people, having fun, doing different activities, but also I need time for me, for my thoughts, for my feelings.
I do not think that people who spend their time alone have to be strange; it is another way to live your life, to spend your free time.
I need to be alone above when I feel sad or when I want to relax my mind. What I usually do is-for example here, if the weather is good- listening to my music, take a cigarette and sit down outside, looking at the lake, the trees and breathing. And in summer, if I am in the beach, I love
to stay lying in the sand, looking the stars and thinking in many things that I cannot think when I am with people around me.

Dreams and fears.

It is true that everybody has dreams and fears during their life. My big dreams are about my future job as a lawyer.
I finished my Law studies in June, and I have never worked in my life. I chose this career because my dream is to be in trials, defending people but, at the same time, I am afraid of doing that kind of job.
I would like to be an excellent lawyer, but I do not know If I am going to be good at it.
What I want to do requires a lot of work and knowledge ,and I do not have any experience.
I am afraid of the interviews that I am going to have in a near future . I am a person who wants to do the things perfectly , and I hope to be like this in my future job.
So these are my fears and my dreams at the same time. When I go back to Spain, I will start looking for a job in a law office. Despite my fears, I really want to start realizing my dreams.

Halloween in Spain!!

We also celebrate Halloween in Spain. About ten years ago, Spanish people started copying how Americans celebrate this party. Despite this, our celebration is not like here in the United States.
In USA, Halloween consists of a big party, going to houses doing the typical trick or treat, and going to parties with good costumes, but in Spain it is very different. I think there it is “trivial”, because the Spanish people have not got the real spirit of this celebration, at least not in my group of friends.
We usually go to pubs, with a simple costume , but it is just an excuse to have fun, to do a different thing from the rest of the year. In fact, the only year that I wore a costume was last year, and I only wore a red wig.
So I am happy to be here, and celebrate Halloween like I have been watching for a long time in American films!! :)

Journal question 2

At this moment ,I am not in a relationship,and I am happy too, Ana. :)
I remember one relationship that I had with a boy when I was 18.I was in a pub with my friends and there were a group of guys.I started to speak with one of them,called Alex,and one of my friends did the same with another one.The interesting thing is that the two boys looked alike , like Zipi and Zape(Spanish cartoon characters, one blond and one dark haired.)
The dark haired guy gave me his telephone number, but I never used it because I did not like him very much then...However, my friend started going out with the other guy,in fact, they started a relationship.
Two years later,I went with my friend to another pub,because she was going to meet her boyfriend,and....there was Alex.The situation was very different this time,because he was very handsome and friendly.
A few days later I started a relationship with him...It finished a few months later ,but currently we are very good friends.
