I suddenly like Barack Obama. why?? It is a simple reson. Thanks to him we got a day off from school yesterday!!

The school system said it was because of the weather (there was a possibility that it would snow), however Mom and UBie believe it is because of the inaugural address. I believe that too. I felt so lucky!! I really wanted to watch the inaugural address (I'm here only for one year, it's the year of the election and it's a historic election... I HAD TO see it!!), so that's what I did from 10.30 until 1. (well, I was drawing at the same time, but that doesn't count, I'm a woman and can do 2 things at the same time).

I still don't know what is goin gto happen, and it's too early to judge the new President, but there's one thing that I don't quite like. I know the United States is currently the richest and most influential country in the world. However, do we have the right to think that everything in Spain will be sorted out just because Obama became the president? I think that Spanish affairs should be managed by the Spanish government. Probably the crisis was unavoidable, all markets are connected to wall street, but maybe if we hadn't denied it, we could've done something so that it hadn't become that horrible.

But enough about politics (If I had knowledge enough I could talk about it for days :P). So today was a day of confusion. Nobody knew if it was a B day as scheduled or an A day to make up for yesterday. Rose and I were lucky and got it right, it was a B day :P

As soon as I came home, Mom was leaving to renew her drivers license. It wa sfunny because right when she left I remembered that i had to call Grandpa and after she had closed the garage door and started up the car I ran outside to let her know. hahaha it was actually funny!! (I had no shoes on, my slippers in my hand, running towards the car... "MOOOOOM" :P)

I had a great time talking to them all!! And even Victor was there, so it was a coincidence hahaha!! But anyway, I preferred to call today even though the birthday is tomorrow (yes, I saw the message, mom) because I really felt like talking to them, and I was so excited it was today that I couldn't wait!!! :D

Soooo that's all!! Right now I was practicing some calligraphy (they bought me a kit for my birthday). Some day I'll write letters to all of you!! :P

Cool project :D

Hi everyone!!

I just wanted to write about what I'm going to do with my Art Honor Society. We are going to paint a mural in the library!! I feel very excited about it, and there's only 5 of us who want to do it, which means it will be a small and comfortable group. We have more or less sketched what we are going to do and there is going to be references of many books (and I even told them to draw Don Quijote ;D)

I think it is a very interesting project, and along with my ceiling tile, will help me to be "immortalized" and have some proof that I was there.

Also, for my Public Speaking class, we have to do a little research on something. My group decided to talk about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, and I am going to talk about the Jewish point of view (Actually I wanted to tell the story, but fate decided that I wasn't destinied to do that :P). Aaaanyway, it is a good excuse to start doing a little investigation about something that they talk many times about in the news and that I didn't fully understand.

That's all I have to tell. I'm still waiting for my beautiful markers!!! (I hope they arrive in 1 week's time, maybe 2)



P.S. By the way, I just realized I posted my las post three times... When I was checking why THIS post wasn't there. I think there must be something wrong with my computer, so I don't know. Just let me know if you see this, I think I've figured a way to see if it's posted or not.

All good things come to an end

And holidays seem to end even faster than other things.

Last night I couldn't sleep until 1.30/2 I think it's because that's the time I was used to go to bed during the holidays (if not at 3 and at times even at 4 :P), however this morning I wasn't especially tired, I was feeling ok. (Tonight I'll sleep tight, though :P)

My first block was history, and I kind of spent it reading the golden compass. No that I'm not interested in the Underground Railroad and the causes of the Civil War, but the teacher keeps saying the same things over and over, so when I had a free minute, I read.

Then I had Math. I thought I had forgotten everything, but as soon as I started doing my problems, I remembered it all. The same thing with Chemistry. In Art everything was fine, that's a cool class ;D

I just wanted to say that I'm still alive after my first day of school after the holidays. Tomorrow I have a meeting with my mock trial group. Not that I feel like staying, but I signed up for it and I can't say no now!!

By the way, happy 6th of January. I hope los reyes will bring you a lot of gifts!! ;D



Happy New Year

I just want to wish you all a happy 2009.

I have to admit that 2008 was a good year. I traveled a lot, we did a lo tof things at school (including the play with MArisa :D), suring the summer we went back to Melilla... And then my american adventure started!!

I can only say that I hope this new year will beat 2008, I certainly am on my way!!

I didn't eat grapes, I had M&M's (or lacasitos) with Rose. It was funny, because we decided to eat 3 M&M's at a time because they are very small, and grapes are rather big. Hehehe I don't have anything else to say, you can imagine the rest :P

After that Rose and Joey got to open one gift (the rest we'll give to them when all the family comes). Joey opened Mom's, which was a little game, and Rose opened mine, which was the third book of the Twilight series... Eclipse!!! I hid it in a pillow behind the Christmas tree with a lot of newspapers, and gave another box to her that was empty... It was funny to look at her face!! Mom recorded it all, so I guess when I'm there you'll see it ;D

And yesterday we went to the Mongolian BBQ again. I looove that place!! We only go on birthdays, so I'm glad we will be back for my birthday ;D Then we came back home and watched the Golden Compass. I am going to buy those books!!! They are fantasy books, just the kind I like :D And then I went with Chris and Joey to play the wii, and Chris taught me some karate moves. Now I know at least 4 different ways to make my opponent faint and I also know some pressure points. Coooool! :P

Sooo that's all!! I love you very much!!
