CORONAVIRUS COEXISTENCE DAY 96

Coronavirus Coexistence DAY 96 tuesday, June 16, 2020

I anticipate that there are less of these chronicles left… I’m very sad because I really liked telling all my little shits… But don’t worry, I’m going to start other chronicles that I still don’t know what I’ll call… something like “Chronicles post Covid” or “Chronicles of life after the coronavirus”, I don’t know, I accept suggestions… and today (Tuesday) there was no interview, no, nothing, it just couldn´t happen, well, I don’t know how to explain it all…

I have to say that I have been in Spain for 16 years now after having lived more than 25 years in the US. I always say there are good and bad things in every place and when they ask me where I am from, it is difficult to say, since I don’t identify with either Spain or the US, I think I’m from the world. In Spain, they tell me that I have an American accent when I speak in Spanish and in the US; they tell me I have a Spanish accent when I speak English. Although I’m bilingual, it seems that part of my mind keeps bits of each one and drags them to the other, and like with everything, it makes me imperfect…

Well, I’m telling you all this stuff because one of the things I miss a lot of the US is people´s the efficiency. Here if you ask for something you pretty much have to just sit there and wait for someone to respond or take action, and when they finally do, everything they give you is done half ass…

On the other hand, in the US when you ask for what you need you have it in 5 minutes (I’m not exaggerating, I know we talked about my exaggerations yesterday, but this time I’m not exaggerating, I promise you). I´m saying this because today´s guest on my “Friends with Talent” is from the US.  When I asked him what I needed he not only sent it to me right away he sent me even more than what I asked for…

On the other hand, I’ve been waiting for weeks for some people to answer whether or not they can do an interview, or to send me the material I need… I’ll leave it there, do what you want with the information… hahahahaha, I’m just letting off some steam with you.

Bitmoji ImageLet me tell you that today I went to take my eye pressure (prevention, since they canceled my annual check-up with the eye doctor) and at the same time get some new prescription sunglasses, since the ones I have are from a prescription of I don’t know how many years ago.  And the truth is, I can´t see anything at all with them.

The girls already know me and are always very sweet with me… I go in and it’s the same girls I know (but now with a mask). They give me an eye test (thank goodness everything is fine and correct), and I tell them, “I need more daily contact lenses for when I go back to ballet, but I also want “occupational” contact lenses just to see up close”, and they say to me, “But what for?” and I say (a little embarrassed)… Let’s see… “I hold interviews online and I dress up, and well I always wear glasses, but there are some costumes that go better without glasses”, and they say to me, “What????” hahahahaha, thank goodness they have known me for years. I begin to explain a little bit about the interviews and my blog and they just couldn’t stop laughing (I hope they see the interviews).

And I don’t have much more to tell you, between remote work, my other project that has to do with this, cooking, cleaning the house, taking the Gremlins here and there, going to get my glasses, writing the post, reading the book, talking to the boyfriend, gossiping with friends in my favorite WhatsApp group “The Darkness”, well that’s for another day… I won’t bore you any more… Tomorrow more and better…

Daily reflection: I think that when we look in the mirror it is the same as when we listen to our voice on a recording, we ourselves see and hear something completely different from what others see and hear… A very low percentage (but there are) see and hear themselves better than others, but most of us see and hear ourselves worse, we criticize ourselves and we don’t like ourselves… I think it is important to like ourselves (without being narcissistic), to see and listen to ourselves with love. .. Look in the mirror and talk to ourselves, record ourselves and listen to ourselves…

 

“True love is within each of us.”
