New semester...

I've been putting away talking about my new semester, the thing is that PR is a really shitty place. Granted, we have beaches, hotness, awesome food but apart from that the country sucks. Our government has been creating a turmoil in every state oriented institution and by far the one that has been affected the most has been the University of Puerto Rico... Yes, we boricuas do bitch a lot about the government, but what are we suppossed to do? Everytime we attempt to change something we get bombed out of our lives, so, we keep on bitching.


Even if I am eager to begin the semester (or Ovester in true Legally Blonde fashion) it just bums me to see the same people making the same mistakes over and over again. So, that just screws up my semester. To that mishapp I have to add that after 4 years I am currently single, something that just sucks in so many ways I cannot even begin to contemplate.


Sometimes you think you are rocking your relationship until you find out that the other person just isn't there, not because of your lack of trying but because they suck and dont have the guts to say it how it is.




Thesis pt.2

I talked with my thesis advisor and she is totally in for my project. I'm supposed to be working with Derrida's elaboration of justice in Force of Law along with theories of vigilantism and punishment. This is going to be sooo much fun, I just can't wait for my A.D.D. to stop bitching around... Most of the time I have fun, but I do want to finish my thesis as soon as possible and this isn't helping. 

Thesis

 This few weeks have been a little intense. I started working on my thesis proposal which involves violence and graphic novels. It's really neat I only wish I could find 2 other professors that would like to work with me on this matter. I'll be examining V for Vendetta and Watchmen, at first I really wanted to work with Neil Gaiman's Sandman but I guess timing wasn't right and being a work of such magnitude I wouldn't know where to begin. Still It would be something I would like to do... Today I have a meeting with my thesis advisor I hope it goes well...

 

Update

 So...
I know its been a while since i've been here, but i thought to drop by and write about whats going on at our island.

Let's see...

The government is practically destroying what's left of the puertorrican public sphere. They've made huge job cuts in the government. They've practically  held hostage all the University's finances and cut a significant amount of it's fundind leaving us with a 40million dollar deficit for this year and up to 200million fow the next 2 years. Right now we're battling against a huge tuition fee increase and bad governance issues. The President of the UPR and the board of trustees are uber negligent in the way they manage university's claims and because of this the University is facing a warning from the Middle States Comission on Higher Education so lets see what happens.

Ahhh...
BTW
At one of the many protests we were violently attacked by the police...

Meh, I got tired of my own rant...

Maybe Iĺl post some pictures of the 64day strike at UPR

Invitation...

Interesting thing...

I was invited to publish some of my stuff at an online publication about the best 100 young puertorican writers.

Im psyched!

The deadline is this Saturday, so... maybe I can get to finish or begin some new stuff to submit.

...

I just realized that there isn't any mood thingie anymore...
hmmm


Oh no!
there it is...

Back...

So... It's weird isn't it?
I'm back at LJ after almost 3 years...
My life has changed a little bit I guess. Right now I'm doing an MA in Comp. Lit and next semester I'll be taking some biology classes just to make it to med school...

Sometimes I feel I'm being a little bit aimless, but I guess sometimes one has to find something that suits them. I hope to find it in Med School, Psychiatry always seemed to be interesting, I just hope that I can make it and still go on with my life.

Summer was awesome... later I'll write something about my impressions. Universität Wien rocked my socks off...

I have a really awesome girlfriend, her name is Paola and she rocks even if shes 5 years younger. My ex jokes around that I'm entering the Cougar age, I just laugh it up. I'm happy and that's all that matters. She's really awesome, majors in biology, brilliant, Tango dancer and she also plays the piano.  In March we will have our 2 year anniversary.

Anyway, later I'll upload some pictures.


Ciao
Hoy le dije a Jaime que lo queria y parece que no esperaba algo asi. Por alguna razon, hoy me siento mas sensible y puedo decirle a la gente que le quiero. Son pocas las personas que significan algo en mi vida, Mi Madre, Jaime, Angela, Salvi, Keila, Abuela... no por ser insensible sino por miedo...
Mi padre... llevamos años una relacion amor/odio
Tal vez... todavía es la hora en que no nos entendemos y mi rencor y yo nos negamos a dejarle un espacio, pero bueno, el se lo buscó. Tantos años detras de un maltrato emocional, no físico sino puramente psicológico.Cuan malo es aferrarse a algo que lamentablemente se ira... mi abuelo se fue, mi padre en algun momento se fue emocionalmente y eventualmente me abandonará fisicamente.
Yo, me iré y cada día presiento que esa fecha es más cercana. EL sentir que alguien te susurra diariamente tu día y tu hora de partida te llena de ansiedad, una ansiedad que lamentablemente no se representa de forma positiva, sino que tal vez sería un buen ejemplo de patología. Porque las voces que siento amenazan con arrebatarme cada cosa preciada de mi vida y aun así, yo, me siento impotente ante la idea de perder lo único a lo que me he aferrado. Esa idealización de un amor, que tan solo un puñado de personas pueden comprender y otras, que intentan decodficarlo, daña y lacera cada instante en el que vivo... Lamentablemente, les quiero y en algún momento terminaré partiendo como alguna vez lo hizo Abuelo y Cesar...

Let

Ella no tiene idea de cuanto la quiero...

¿Quien podría negarle algo a una carita así?

Kubla Khan:
or, A vision in a dream.
A fragment.

:

"That with music loud and long,
I would build that dome in air,
That sunny dome ! those caves of ice !
And all who heard should see them there,
And all should cry, Beware ! Beware !
His flashing eyes, his floating hair !
Weave a circle round him thrice,
And close your eyes with holy dread,
For he on honey-dew hath fed,
And drunk the milk of Paradise."
