just a couple of things to say...

let me see...
- In 13 days I'll be on vacation ... well... not really, but almost -- don't feel like getting into details about it though.
- I have been pre-registered for my classes at University of London, in London, UK. I know I said I would be going to Westminster, but University of London just looked better ;)
- The last four days I've been in NYC for the thanksgiving break. I met my dear friend Andres there, we walked around, talked a lot, laughed quiet a bit, drank tons of bear, smoke half a dozen cigarrettes, etc. etc. and then we said goodbye, once more. :S
- I'm sick. I have an awful and painful cough that does not let me sleep. Hope a good dosis of Robitussin several times a day helps me go through this issue without losing much time in bed due to the symptoms.

That's about it.
'til next time!

Hopes and Fears

have you guys heard Keane's "somewhere only we know" and "everybody's changing"? really good songs! ... love them! ... uhmm ... I guess they put me in a england-kind-of-mood ...

... can you notice how excited I am? I can't stop thinking about it! in just six weeks I'll be living in London! Finally! ... best christmas gift ever ... definitely.

London ... London ... London ...

Well... it seems that I am really going to London, and actually, I'm leaving earlier than I thought. I barely have six weeks left at Buffalo which means that I'll have about a week to pack eeeeeverything in my apartment and leave it in storage until I'm back, probably in a year, but hopefully in longer time.
ehm.. yes, I'm excited. very excited. super excited!!!! but I have been thinking about what it means to move to Europe. I wonder how am I going to take this change. Obviously the American system is soooo different from the European one, people, culture, society, etc. etc. differ so much, and well... I have been living in America for my whole life, except a few months while in High School when I went to Germany, so I don't know how is it going to be like... I mean... to begin with, even electricity is different! my hair drier won't work there! bye bye Tivo! hasta la vista Home Theater! ciao electronic tootbrush! ... *sigh*... anyway, this is exactly why I want to leave. I am too attached to everything now. I'll have to sell my car, that even though it is an old and cheap one, has been my partner since I first came to America, in 2000. Then, I'll have to leave everything non-essential behind, that is, furtniture, appliances, two of my three computers, tons of books (snif snif sniffffff), some of my dolls and toys, my small collection of Kandinsky's reproductions, and probably a few pairs of shoes (!!!!) ... so, you get the idea. This will make me stronger. This will help me to grow. This is going to be sad though.

anyway ... besides the material stuff I'm leaving behind, there are so many memories that are going to be attached to this place. I know I don't like Buffalo, and I know I don't like to live in America that much, but gee! I have learned so much here! This place has been home for the last four years. School is here. Friends are here. Toronto is so near by! ... *deep sigh*

London promises to be really cool though. I'm going to school there. It's going to be my last semester, and I won't have as many classes. I'm going to get a job, and I'll travel around ... a lot!. Some of my closest friends are there. People I've met for a long time will be close by as well. and besides that... I mean ... come on! it's London! it's England! the home land of Colplay! The Beatles! Elton John! Virginia Woolf! Geoffrey Chaucer! Shakespeare! Annie Lennox !!!! ... I'm definitelly looking forward for this new experience. It's time now. I'm ready.
