Paseo de Curso (parte 2)

Bueno, eso fue lo que ocurrio el Viernes. Pero el mejor día del paseo fue el Sábado. Aunque me tuve que levantar temprano y sin haber dormido lo suficiente, ese día fue genial. Después del desayuno (no me acuerdo que mismo comí, y creo que está bien dejarlo así nomás jaja), nos alistamos y salimos en bus hacia el "Pailón del Diablo". Viajamos como una media hora en bus y caminamos como unos 15 minutos antes de llegar a esta simplemente impresionante cascada. Estando cerca, se sentía la fría brisa y el rocío que se formaba cuando el agua caía sobre el río y salpicaba mojando todo (incluyendo mi camara!).

Después fuimos a la tarabita de San Pedro, que no era sino un "cable car" sobre un río que estaba a algunas decenas de metros más abajo. Cuando me tocó subirme con algunos amigos, justo comenzó a llover, haciendo nuestro viaje mucho más interesante. Luego regresamos al Hotel a almorzar, para salir más tarde al centro de Baños a pasear. Junto con algunos amigos, alquilamos bicicletas por una hora (pagamos 1 dólar) y recorrimos el lugar. No vimos mucho del pueblo, pero dimos vueltas y vueltas y compramos algunas cosas. Yo sólo compre algunas melcochas, porque no vi alguna cosa que me llamara la atención, pero en un puesto donde estaba acompañando a algunas amigas a comprar, nos regalaron las típicas pulseritas de piola ^_^ Algunos también aprovecharon para aprovisionarse de trago y otros alquilaron cuadrones y pasearon.

Los padres habían planificado una dizque "discoteca" en una sala del hotel para esa noche, pero casi nadie fue porque el cuarto tenía un terrible olor a humedad y porque otros estaban ocupados con sus bebidas alcohólicas. Yo pasé esa noche aquí y allá conversando con mis amigos y medio cuidando a un pana (Pablo) quien estaba enfermo, aunque solo fui un par de veces a ver que nadie estuviera haciendo bulla por allá. Nuevamente me duché a las 3 de la madrugada y me fui a dormir.

El domingo era el día de regresar. Salimos con unas dos horas de atraso, con varios compañeros medio enfermos (mareados y con dolor de cabeza) y otros con chuchaqui (jaja). Nos tuvimos que detener algunas veces para que pudieran vomitar, y a una amiga la llevaron a que le pongan una inyección para que cese el vómito. Quizá se estén imaginando un bus así todo de gente vomitando con vomito en todas partes (jajaja), pero no fue exactamente así. Los que realmente estuvieron mal mal fueron solo unos cuantos. El resto solo sufría de dolores de cabeza o mareos que se aliviaban con algo de aire fresco. Yo estuve sanito hasta que fuimos al Chimborazo. Aunque solo llegamos hasta el primer refugio, cuando regresamos la cabeza me estallaba. Ese fue el único malestar que tuve en todo el viaje.

El viaje de regreso no fue la gran cosa, y más bien fue aburrido. Como tuvimos que cambiarnos a otro bus que no tenía DVD, tuvimos que entretenernos escuchando música o durmiendo o conversando, aunque algunos ni siquiera pudieron hacerlo (por los malestares, claro). Ese día en lugar del almuerzo recibimos unos sánduches, aunque yo preferiría llamarlos sólo "pan con queso", porque un sánduche es como que distinto y con más cosas y....
en fin, terminamos cansados y con hambre. Llegamos al colegio por eso de las 8 de la noche y de ahí como dijo Mickey Mouse, cada cual para su House jaja.

Bueno, ese fue nuestro famosísimo paseo de grado a Baños. Nos divertimos mucho y la pasamos chévere, aunque le faltó un poco de planificación (un ejemplo claro de eso fue la comida guak!). Ahora ya se estan haciendo planes mentales para nuestro siguiente paseo a quién sabe donde!

Paseo de Curso

A petición de "yo": aquí un post en español para variar un poco...

Bueno... el jueves fue un día algo más interesante. Me levante sin haber dormido lo suficiente y casi me duermo en las primeras horas de clase. Lo interesante de este día no fueron las clases, porque fueron aburridas y monotonas, como de costumbre; lo que hizo este día diferente de los otros fue que me decidí a enfrentar mis temores y hablarle a Tania sobre lo que pensaba de ella. Pase la noche anterior hasta tarde pensando en qué le iba a decir, y sabía que si no lo decía, me quedaría para siempre con la duda de qué habría pasado... entonces me dije "Ya es hora de liberar mi mente" , fui y creo que fue todo un éxito. Parecía más una pequeña charla de apoyo que más una conversación, pero en fin, todo salió parecido a lo que tenía en mente. El resto del día lo pasé en atletismo, en mi casa descansando y empacando para mi paseo de curso a Baños.

El viernes era el gran día. Me levante como de costumbre y me aliste con mi bolso y mi mochila (con mi camara de video también!) y fui al colegio, esperando no llegar tarde. La salida de los buses estaba prevista para las 7:00, pero no nos fuimos sino hasta las 8 y algo. Durante el viaje de ida vimos algunas películas, entre ellas Along Came Polly y Mean Girls, y habíamos comenzado a ver Euro Trip hasta que las madres que iban con nosotros no nos dejaron por su alto contenido explícito jaja.

Pasamos por varios pueblos deteniéndonos cada tanto tiempo para que pudieramos ir al baño y comprar cosas hasta que llegamos a Ambato, donde almorzamos en un lugar donde la comida era tan mala, que ni el nombre me acuerdo! Primero nos sirvieron una sopa, que no sabía tan mal, pero el hecho de que a un compañero le tocó la cabeza del pollo/gallina en su plato, fue realmente desagradable. De ahí vino el segundo o plato fuerte o como le quieran decir, el cual consistía de una carne asada, con una triste ensalada, una salchicha y algo de arroz medio frío. Lo único que era realmente "comible" fue la carne. (Comible= algo que se deja comer sin causar mucho disgusto. No confundir con Comestible jaja)

Después de esa ración de comida, que se podría comparar con la de un avión, continuamos con nuestro viaje a Baños. Nos detuvimos también en Pelileo, donde mucha gente compró jeanes y cosas por el estilo. Yo no compré nada porque como que no estaba de humor para compar... y creo que me arrepiento de eso.

Llegamos al Hotel Bascún en Baños ya casi anocheciendo, repartimos las habitaciones (o cabañas o como sea) y cenamos. Esa comida fue como el cielo comparada con el almuerzo que comimos; aunque no era la gran cosa (carne apanada con puré y arroz), sí estaba bien preparada, y eso le dio una ventaja infinita frente a la dizque comida que nos sirvieron antes jaja. Esa misma noche, nos llevaron, casi a la fuerza, a una discoteca ("Santo Pecado"), donde una mitad de la gente bailó algo y el resto paso sentado o paseando por ahí. El lugar se veía bien, pero el ambiente no era tan bueno: la música estuvo mas o menos al principio, pero luego ya se volvió fea. Y para variar que nos cobraron (hem, hem, robaron) 3 dólares por ir a esa cosa, a la que algunos (como yo) ni siquiera querían ir.

El resto de esa noche la pasé conversando con amigos aquí y allá y visitando algunas cabañas con gente en proceso de emborracharse. Para los que se pregunten si yo tomo o no, la respuesta es no. Talvez me vean por ahí en alguna fiesta con un vasito de algún coctel o algo por el estilo, pero más allá no voy jeje. Después de regresar a mi cuarto y encontrar a mis compañeros Manolo, y Sucio (los nombres han sido cambiados para proteger la vida personal de los personajes del relato) viendo cosas sucias en la TV, me di una ducha (a las 3 de la madrugada) y me fui a dormir.

How powerful can a Blog be?

Tuesday have always been boring days, and yesterday wasn't an exception. I got up after having slept a few hours and having had some strange dreams, and could already feel the strange energy this new day had. Almost being late for school was one of the first uncommon things that happened that day. School was also duller than often, and classes were so boring, I can even say that I would have enjoyed skipping hours and reading a book instead,

One of the things I hate the most about Tuesdays is the afternoon school, which is not other than classes in the afternoon. These classes have turned out so boring, that I believe I should have some coffee before them so that I do not fall asleep and get into trouble. Yesterday was more or less like that, except for the fact that I had to tell off my sister for spying on me when I was talking to a friend of mine (María Gracia).

Those weren't all the surprises that day had for me. After getting home and logging on my messenger, I began chatting with Tania. She had already read my blog right after school, and she told me what she thought about it. She was like sitting on both ends of the weight: some posts would make her feel like a princess, but in others she would feel down and about to cry. She also said that I should also have written about how much she cared for me and how she couldn't loose me as a friend. I must say that I still care a lot for her as a friend, and I will always be there if she needs me.

Wednesday was another boring day. Even with the class trip approaching (yes, it is on Friday) it has been like a bit dull. My day was pretty much the same, except for the fact that I spent most of my time thinking about the conversation I had the night before. Now I just want to go to sleep and get ready for tomorrow, because tomorrow, I'll tell Tania a lot of things I've got in my head wanting to come out. Good Night!

Weekend Post

Today it's Sunday, which means that unless I write something today, my post rate will decrease a lot, which is not good. Sunday also means that another week has turned history, and that this world is one week older.

This week has been a boring one. Sitting the whole day at home isn't exactly fun, specially when you have an oral examination to do. I spent the whole Wednesday afternoon working on the piece of cardboard I would use in my exposition. It wasn't big deal, but I think it was ok. I spent part of the night looking for some radiography I would use the next day, and I finally went to bed at around 11 pm. By the way, I talked about Röntgen Radiation and Wilhem Conrad Röntgen.

Thursday was Judgment Day (hahaha). I went to school as I every do, and spent most of the morning sitting in the school lunch place, because my examination started at 9:25. Talking to my friend didn't reduce my anxiety very much, as they were as nervous as I was, but a friendly hug and some hope-words did a lot for me.

The examination was a total mess; after the preparation time we were given, I went to the classroom were the teachers were waiting for me. First, I had to read a text in German and answer some questions. Up to that moment, everything seemed to be fine, but when I started with my exposition, Pandora's box was opened and a whole bunch of little demons zoomed through my head. I forgot to mention some information, and part of what I was trying to said was not understood by the teachers (too much technical information :S), but in the end, I think everything was fine, and remember that at the end of that Greek myth, there is still hope.

Friday was the best day of the whole week. In the morning I had to help my father ordering some stuff and overseeing some workers. The work itself wasn't that tireding, but the warehouse was burning hot, and the process was tedious. But all this paid back! At night, I went to Isabella's house because there was a little gathering because of her birthday, which by the way was on Monday (Happy Belated Birthday!). It was great because most of my friends were also there and there was music (although I don't really dance) and we had fun and all that! That was the best that happened that week.

Today it wasn't really an interesting day. The only thing that is worth mentioning is that today I've been eating like the whole afternoon, and that right now Tania is reading this blog. I can't wait to know what she thinks about this blog and the "verbal vomit" it contains (haha)

Bored

Today it's Tuesday, if I had to go to school, today it would have been a horrible day because of afternoon school. However, it's horrible and damn boring to sit at home the whole day and studying for that Sprachdiplom exam.

As I wrote in the other post, I have a crush on this beautiful actress Lindsay Lohan. Who hasn't ever had a crush on some movie star or artist? Well, now it's my turn; after seeing the movie, I just couldn't get her out of my mind. Anyways, as the typical artist crushes so common in our age, I don't expect this one to last more than a few weeks.


I've been thinking about the kind of girl I like and I believe that the girl for me must be brave, smart and funny. I sometimes imagine her as a teddy bear in an armored medieval suit: she might be hard, thought and resistant in the outside, but in the inside she should be just like a teddy bear, hug-able and lovable.

...damn... I think the boredom is beginning to damage my brain cells, because I'm writing things before thinking it twice.

Another week has gone away

It's Sunday again, which means that another week is part of the history. This week was a weird week: we didn't have classes on Monday, had exams Monday and Tuesday, and had normal classes the rest of the week. Everything seems as if we were ending this already ending this school year, as we are not having regular classes and we aren't doing much stuff at school.

The exams weren't as hard as I thought they would be... or were they? Well, I filled all the fields required and everything is fine, according to me. The problem is, no matter how sure I am of my answers, there's like always something wrong :S. Anyways, I'll know if there really was in a few more weeks.

Thursday and Friday were going to be ordinary boring normal days, so I decided to do something to make life more interesting: I adopted a rock! I just picked up one of the stones lying on the floor, draw a face on it, and named it. That made Thursday a bit more interesting, but I couldn't do anything to save Friday.

Yesterday I was going to play Lan games with some of my friends, but the place was crowded. So, instead, we went to a labyrinth named "Area 51", and then went to the cinema. We watched this really funny movie called "Mean Girls". Lindsay Lohan is really beautiful, and that's one of the reasons to explain why I really liked this movie ^_^. Now I have the typical crush you have after watching a movie with someone really hot in it.

Today I had to take my sister to the San Marino because she was meeting with some friends there. I spent most of my morning shooting monsters and racing a Indy cars, not bad huh?

I feel like I'm getting over that stuff that has been causing me so much trouble lately, and so is my friend Pablo. Some days ago, he told me that he would start being just friends with Catalina (her ex-girlfriend), and let things flow. I'm on the same path, because there's nothing I can do. Yesterday Tania told me that Alfredo had met her parents (the in-laws?). I don't have much to comment about that, but I must say that I think things are like awkward.

So, that's how another week goes away, leaving place for a new one to start. I'll be probably posting again next Sunday, or maybe before.

Sprachdiplom approaches!

Today I'm posting about this week I had. If we considered that my wounds are still healing, it could be said that it was a very good one. I'm getting over this crappy stuff and letting my life go on, but there is still something that hasn't died, not because I want to go on with this, but because it's inevitable.

This week I regained in contact with a friend of mine who I haven't talked to in a long time again. She is the cousin of a friend of my sister and I know her since Christmas, but haven't talked much to her since my trip to Germany. So I decided to write her an SMS to see if she was still there and yes she was. Among other stuff, we talked about how she broke up with her boyfriend, and believe me, she made it an unforgettable moment for him haha.

This week, a good friend of mine, Pablo also broke up with her girlfriend. I knew they had some trouble, but I never imagined that they would end up breaking up. I mean, he and Catalina looked so good together, I would say they were like the perfect match, so I still don't understand why this happened. As far as I know, Catalina simply said she was like feeling something for someone else and that she wanted some time to think. Pablo was also shocked; the breakup really hurt him, as it seems he put a lot of hopes and feelings and stuff like that in his girlfriend, so this thing left him devastated. Somehow, I feel sorry for him.

It seems that these are bad times for some of the people in love: this girl broke up, my friend Pablo got dumped and I... well, you know what happened.

Also, I don't know how it is possible, but every time I talk to Tania, either by SMS or on messenger, she manages to mention Alfredo at least once, and if it's on the messenger, twice or more. The question is: Knowing all what happened, what does she pretend?

Anyways, I have something better to think about: Sprachdiplom coming next Tuesday and Wednesday and then oral examinations the week after this one!

I better begin studying, so, that's all for now.
