*Watches fire*

Wow, I haven't updated this in over a month! Time just flies so fast. College has kept me incredibly busy, thankfully this semester is over.

I've been on a break since friday and it'll last three weeks until I have to start my next semester, so right now I'm bored out of my mind. Since I'm on vacation the logical thing for me to do would be going to the beach or the mountains or something, apparently fate has decided that it's not going to happen.

Things where I live have been getting pretty bad, the violence has escalated to incredibly dangerous amounts. There have been news going around about how things are getting ugly in Venezuela, sadly it's all true and a lot worse, it's depressing seeing pictures and reading things like these: http://story.news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=story&cid=589&ncid=734&e=5&u=/ap/20040303/ap_on_re_la_am_ca/venezuela_protests

So many people are getting hurt and killed because one moron who just won't give up because he's power hungry. I've been stuck in my house all these days because people outside are burning trash, tires, matresses, parts of old cars, etc. as a protest against everything that has been going on these past few days. I took a few pictures but they're blurry because things started happening at night and I didn't have my tripod with me:

Those pictures are from yesterday night and some from today. It's terrifying to know that you can't get out of your own appartment because it's surrounded by fire everywhere.

I'm sick of having to run away from tear gas, pepper spray and rubber bullets. I'm getting scared seeing people walk around with stones and Molotov cocktails in their hands, I just want this whole thing to be over once and for all.

Of course, while I'm writing this there's a big bonfire going on out there. My house is black right now because of all the smoke..... again......

Being healthy is good :)

Thankfully, I'm feeling much better now than I did a few days ago. Mid-terms are over too so that's one less reason to worry. Hopefully things will stay peaceful for a while.

Being sick is no fun

So, I'm really sick today. I think this is the strongest flu I've ever gotten. I was supposed to go to college today to talk to a teacher but I had a killer headache, fever and I was incredibly dizzy... not a good combo. I guess the stress of these past few weeks finally caught up to me.

Thank God for Atamel and Coricidin though, those are miracle medicines. I don't know what I would do without them. I just looked in the mirror and I look almost dead >_< I hope to feel better by tomorrow, I have a pretty big math test and i just can't miss it.

Some free time... finally!

I haven't updated in a while, things have been kinda busy for me this past week, college is once again taking up most of my time.

On Monday and Tuesday I had to get together with a few of my classmates to do a project, both days we started at 3:00 in the afternoon and ended up leaving the library at 11:00 PM. I got so sleep those days.

On Wednesday I had to get up extra early to study for my Ethics final since I didn't have a chance to do so the past two days. Once again: no sleep whatsoever.

Yesterday we had to hand another project to a teacher that never bothered to show up which bothered me even more. Thankfully today was a lot more relaxed but still... it's at moments like this when I miss high school.

On a happier note my dad got my old computer chair fixed, it's all cushiony and soft now not like before, I used to feel like I was sitting on a piece of wood :)

Procrastinating.....

Procrastinating, procrastinating, procrastinating... I think it's quite obvious that I'm procrastinating right now. Tomorrow I have a Calculus midterm, what would a normal person do? Study. What do I do? Wonder if I should start making a new layout instead.

Thankfully one of our teachers didn't come today so I have two extra hours for "studying". I know I really should start soon because the exam is pretty long but still....*sigh* Can anyone give me some motivation?

What can I say? Mondays suck *is grumpy*

Things are looking up....

Yesterday wasn't so bad after all! After a bad week at least I had a good friday :)

Classes started being nice to me, in one of them we had to build a tower out of paper strips the size of a ruler we had brought that day. It had to be 6 floors tall and between each floor there had to be a hole. The tower had to support the weight of the ruler used to built it without wavering: my team brought a metal ruler >_< It was so fun see people running around trying to keep it from falling apart since you could only use the kind of glue that comes in a stick ^_^ I'm sad that I forgot to bring my camera, otherwise I would have taken a picture of it. It was bright pink!

I wanted to go out today but I'm stuck studying, I have a midterm of calculus on tuesday, God please help me....

*sigh* Kinda long rant

College just... blows. What goes of this week has been so pathetic. On Monday I had to get up at 5:45 AM for my first class, I got there early and the teacher got there 30 minutes late >_< Of course we didn't do anything since there wasn't enough time for a class, she just showed us some of our grades and we were ready at 7:55 AM. I had a gaping hole until 1 PM for my last class of the day, which thank God went well.

Yesterday, I got there at 9:00 AM for my first class. Just like on Monday the teacher showed us our grades and let us leave early at 9:47 AM, I had to wait until 11:00 AM for my next class. My and friends staid there until 11:30 AM but the teacher never showed up. I shouldn't have bothered going yesterday at all.

Today I had to be there at 7:00 AM for English and surprise, surprise! The teacher didn't show up ¬.¬ I waited until 9:00 AM for my next class, they were giving a speech for mechanicals engineers, since I'm studying systems engineering it had nothing to do with me. More time wasted. I came back home and got ready to return at college at 12:30 for my last class today, on my way out the elevator got stuck and I was trapped for 15 minutes... thankfully I managed to get there on time.

The only class I've actually seen is Ethics, which is easily my most confusing and boring class :(

*bangs head on the keyboard* I just hope next week is better.....

College here we go... again

Aagh, tomorrow I start classes again! It seems like the two weeks I had of vacation just flew by :( I had been so happy and stress-free the past few days.

I'm just starting and I already have 3 quizzes for next week, hopefully they'll go a bit soft on us since it's a brand new year, I don't wanna burn what little neurones I have left just yet.

I was supposed to be eating lunch with my cousins today but they couldn't go, a pipe exploded in their apartment and pretty much flooded it, what a great timing for it to burst too. I guess I'm annoyed that most of my friends had double the vacation time I had. I'm just trying to convince myself that it's for a good cause.

Finally 2004 is here...

So we're on 2004 now, it doesn't feel any different for me :) I have a feeling this is gonna be a good year for me.

Today I went to hang out with a few of my cousins, I hadn't seen some of them in over 2 years and boy they've changed! I missed us being together like that, hopefully it won't be as long until the next time I see them. I'm going to lunch with one of them on Sunday.

I took some photos of last night's firework where I live, if you wanna see them they're here:

They're not the best since Tabulas resized them, but I think they're pretty decent :)

New Year is coming!

So this year is pretty much over, it went by so fast... I can't believe it. I'm starting classes on monday already! There goes my vacation. This year I decided to not make any New Year's resolutions. Why? Because I never fullfill them, so what's the point :P

I have no idea what I'm doing tonight. I have two choices: I either stay home tonight with my dad and we'll watch the countdown on TV or we can go to a big party/concert that our part of the city is organizing. I'll make my mind up later and I'll probably take pictures if I do go to the concert, knowing myself I'll probably forget the camera or something...
