Ten days to go until my birthday. Another year flew by… It has been a really good one, I cannot complain. Lots of trips, time with friends and family, good health, love and laughter.
I am very happy with the things accomplished and done, like paying off my braces treatment, working as a free-lance graphic designer on the side, buying this amazing laptop that I love, and seeing some awesome shows during the year. I have some items on my list that I would like to highlight: Continue reading
Just a quick post to acknowledge that almost another year has passed. In exactly one month I’ll be turning 30. I’m still trying to decide if it should be a “big deal” or not. Continue reading

The story behind a door… I came across this topic today while I was checking the WordPress Discover Challenge on my reader. Suddenly I felt flooded with memories of many years ago. Other music, other books… I was able to see in my mind my old bedroom, with the two orange walls, the paintings, and the posters, the bookshelf… I remember I had a poster of a painting from José Tola, a well-known Peruvian artist, signed by himself.

I was studying art back then and listening to The Doors non-stop. Continue reading

This afternoon I will have my first driving lesson (Yay!). I have taken forever to learn, I know. The excuse was always that the traffic in Lima is terrible and that one can actually go everywhere in public transportation, so I never felt in a hurry to drive. Nevertheless, it was always in my mind and today finally I’ll be behind the wheel. One more check on my 30 before 30.
And speaking of that, I also have some sad new about one of my goals. This last Saturday Jason and I were mugged. Continue reading
I am so silly! I’ve been meaning to share this post for the last two weeks and track my progress here. Anyway, one of the goals in my 30 before 30 was to complete a 30-day challenge; another, to be able to stretch more. So, combining them both (it was actually Jason’s idea), I decided to try “The Stretch Project – 30-day flexibility challenge” from Blogilates. If you are not familiar with this blog, Cassey Ho is the person behind it. She is an award-winning fitness instructor based in Los Angeles, CA famous for her Pop Pilates workouts among other things, and she is probably the most energetic and happy person you will ever see… like EVER. Feeling motivated by Cassey’s energy, I’ve been trying Continue reading
