It’s March, What’s There to Say?

There isn't much to say these days, but I'll say nothing anyway.

(This blog is the English translation of this week’s primary blog, which was originally written in Spanish.)

These weeks have been a bit difficult to be honest. Right now I’m trying to obtain financial licenses for my job, so my schedule is different. I usually work from eleven to eight, but I have to work from seven to four, Tuesday through Friday. Mondays are normal, but the rest of the week is out of the ordinary. I’m having a challenging time these weeks. But hey, at least I haven’t had much trouble with this project or my other hobbies. I’m just tired. Very, very tired. Okay, it’s not that bad. The work is hard and confusing—the licenses deal with investments—but I feel good about the curriculum. I’m not going to panic, just focus on material.

Meanwhile, life goes on. My parents have gotten the first vaccine shot, and they’ll get the second in a few weeks. I have to wait for now, because I don’t have any dangerous conditions except a history of smoking, even though I quit two or three years ago. And, unfortunately, it is not a cause for getting the vaccine early, you know? What a shame (joking, to be clear). The president said that he wants the vaccine to be available to everyone by May first. I have my fingers crossed.

I wish I had more to talk about, but what is there to say? The world is weird, and I feel like I’m trapped in an endless wait. I’m waiting for the vaccine, I’m waiting for the summer, and I’m waiting for … something different. Anything. The days fly by and there aren’t any changes. I’m so tired you know?

Really, I’m not depressed or anything, I feel pretty good right now, it’s just the world.  I think that’s enough complaining on my part, let’s see the numbers for the week.

A normal week in a normal month in a normal year, which never changes. No, none of that, ignore me, I’ve already finished a lot of The Proud Family, which is a harmless series I suppose. It’s not bad at all, but the stories don’t matter much, and the setting is… confusing? I’m not sure what the rules of the world are. Sometimes everything is very down-to-earth and realistic, and sometimes there are superpowers, ghosts, and talking babies. Like what? And also it’s dated. There are jokes about The Matrix and Napster. What year is it, 2002? Well, the series came out in 2002, so yes in a way.

The end of El Ascenso de la Sombra is coming soon. The book took an unexpected turn that’s irritating me a little, but I’m still enjoying it. I’ll be happy to take a break and read another book after this one. I should finish it in a few weeks, I think, and then I’m going to read the first book of Memorias de idhún. I’d like to finish Lar Rueda del Tiempo this year if I can, but I need something different.

Okay, not much more to say this week. I’ve had to alter the way I work in Spanish because my schedule is different, but there weren’t any problems. I’ll keep working while I have this training. Well that’s enough for the blog, TTFN.
