Because there's no limit to the worst...

It is impressive how things can go wrong...but it is even more impressive to open your eyes and look around yourself...there's so much pain in other people's life you don't even deserve to be sad you?

Oper your Eyes - Snow Patrol
All this feels strange and untrue
And I won't waste a minute without you
My bones ache, my skin feels cold
And I'm getting so tired and so old

The anger swells in my guts
And I won't feel these slices and cuts
I want so much to open your eyes
'Cause I need you to look into mine

Tell me that you'll open your eyes [x4]

Get up, get out, get away from these liars
'Cause they don't get your soul or your fire
Take my hand, knot your fingers through mine
And we'll walk from this dark room for the last time

Every minute from this minute now
We can do what we like anywhere
I want so much to open your eyes
'Cause I need you to look into mine

Tell me that you'll open your eyes [x8]

All this feels strange and untrue
And I won't waste a minute without you

Where do we go?

Do you ever have the feeling that things are quite messed up? It's not that life is horrible...but the feeling that you are going forward and backward at the same time? That's a dizzy feeling!

And I've known
We're just like old friends
We just can't pretend
That lovers make amends
We are reasons so unreal
We can't help but feel
That something has been lost
But please
You know you're just like me
Next time I promise we'll be perfect
Strangers down the line
Lovers out of time
Memories unwind
So far, I still know who you are
But now I wonder who I was
Angel, you know it's not the end
We'll always be good friends
The letters have been sent on
So please
You always were so free
You'll see, I promise we'll be perfect
Strangers when we meet
Strangers on the street
Lovers walk asleep
You know this has to be
We always were so free
We promised that we'd be

One more step

Hi guys!!
I told ya I would write back soon...see?
This time I'll tell you about my trip to the USA. No, no...I haven't travelled there...yet! I'm just planning to spend a year there as an au-pair. Will it be worthwhile? Will it be easy? Will it be expensive? Will it be useful? Believe me...I keep asking the same questions to myself over and over again. Truth is I really don't know any answers! =/
This scares me a bit...but, in spite of all this insecurity, I'm still managing to take some steps towards my trip...First, I'm starting to get some experience with kids in the Kindergarten I'm working at (remember my last post?). This is one of the requirements for working as an au pair in the US.
Today I took another big step: I got my new least, I required my new passport. It will actually be ready only on the 26th...what takes them so long to get it done? I really have no ideas...I only know that the line to get it is just terribly awful!! I arrived there at 8:45 am and I managed to get out of the "PolĂ­cia Federal" at around 11:00 am!
Well..that's it!! I just wanted to share this step with you...Ah! About my wisdom teeth I really don't know anything yet...I just know I will have to take them off!! Sigh!! Will this mean my wisdom will be taken off from me too? Shoo...!

See these passports? It seems the light blue one will be the new Brazilian passport...and it will be much more expensive than the current one! This is so unfair...just because you're travelling, this doesn't mean you have all this money to give the government!!

I know it's been ages, but things got a little complicated in my relationship with technology. Ok, now I think I managed to go through the crisis and I'm back here...
Well, first of all I have great news: I finally graduated!! Can you believe that? This means "university no more"? No...actually I will be back there in a couple of weeks! What is wrong with this place? You never manage to get over it, do you? However, studying will be good...I'll keep me young! LOL!
What else can I write? Well, my holidays are coming to an end, but I still get to enjoy a few more days. Now I'm working as a volunteer in a kindergarten close to my house. The experience is great: these little kids are so cute, funny and loving!! It's very gratifying.
I had a little trip in my holidays...I went to Espirito Santo and visited my dad who's living here now.
Here you can find some pics of my trip.
Something else? Well...I don't think so...I can share some dreadful problems...just kidding!! No dreadul problems...just a dentistic one (isn't it pretty much the same?). My wisdom teeth are starting to show up and I'll have to remove them...will it be as painful as I'm thinking? I'm starting to shake of fear...
Well, I hope I'll get to write back soon!
