I’m desperate and unemployed

Hello, welcome back! Well, I know it’s been a while. Life has been… crazy, to say the least, and I’ve come here to share with you guys what’s been happening to me lately.

First, I’m unemployed and I’ve been trying to find a job that’ll allow me to keep going to college, but that proved to be a pain in the ass. So there’s that.  Then there is my country, that’s heading in the wrong direction and it’s very hard to find a job and keep it. Also, it’s very hard to survive with my savings because the prices are going through the roof!

Also, there’s this blog that I always keep in my mind and I always find myself trying to write something, but I have to be honest with you. Even writing this is proving to be the hardest thing on earth, I think I have a subtle case of writer’s block.

I’m trying to write, but I have to be honest, I find myself trying to write something and then leaving it as a draft because I think it needs a lot more to be published. I know I said I wasn’t going to be so hard on myself, but whatever those things on my drafts are, they are ANYTHING but publishable.

I’m trying to find a job, like ANY job, even as a writer or as a translator, but I guess I’m out of luck. I’ll keep looking, maybe I’ll get lucky soon enough. I really hope things look up anytime now. I’m trying to be optimistic about things but I have been feeling a little blue a depressed lately. It’s just that my actual situation is bringing me down. Luckily I have my boyfriend with me that offered to help me, but I don’t want that. I want to be able to pay for my own things, to earn my own money and I don’t want to owe anything to anyone.

Anyway, this is me, trying to let you guys know what I’ve been up to and that I’m still alive. I’ll try to keep you post it, maybe try to write something non-job-search related. But I can’t promise you anything.

Thank you so much for taking your time to read this. I really really appreciate it. Thank you so much for letting me be part of your life, at least from time to time. I would love to know, in the comment section down below if you’ve ever faced a situation like this in your past and what did you do to feel better when you thought that there was no way out of it? I love reading comments and I always try to answer them!

I hope I see you next time… bye!


Oh well, oh well. Look who rose back from the dead.

Hello everyone! I know it’s been ages since my last post, but I guess… I’m back? I love being a blogger and I love writing posts for you to read and to comment on but lately, I’ve been having a lot of issues and I couldn’t set myself to write something that will be “trendy” or “clickbaity” enough. And every time I wanted to write something I thought that as my “comeback post” it had to be something really good and as time went by whatever thing I was able to write wasn’t good enough.

Honestly, this year is building up to be a literal hell of non-stop to-do lists and tasks to do and I’m already considering to let go of some hobbies of mine, or at least put them on hiatus. And as I was thinking about all the things I will have to leave behind this year I came across the question about this blog.

Like I said before, I can’t keep this blog up as a professional blogger. Even though it hurts like hell (because I’ve put so much effort into it) I have to come to terms with not being able to go on. But I simply can’t with the idea of having to let go of it. So… I came to the conclusion that I’m going to keep writing but this blog it’s going to be a little bit more personal. It’s going to be my outlet and sadly I’m not going to put that much effort promoting it. I’ll try to write as much as I can, I’ll write about my day, my issues, college, science, work, house-keeping shit and such. I’ll try to be open with you, I’ll try to be honest and I’m going to be ME. I don’t know what this year has in store for me, but I can assure it’s going to be a pain in the ass. At least I guess it’s going to be entertaining.

So, if you think you want to keep following this blog because you consider this might be fun… be my guest! Welcome to my life, I hope you enjoy the ride. I’m pretty sure I’m going to cry a lot.

I hope you join me on this adventure! I consider feedback is love and it’s always welcomed.

See you next time… bye!

An open love letter to my boyfriend

Since my boyfriend and I have been together for five years and today it’s our 5-year anniversary,  I’m going to write an open letter to him. So, here it goes. Woah, I’m so nervous, I have never done this before…

Hi honey! I love you,


Me (a.k.a. your girlfriend)

Nah, just kidding, I tend to joke when I’m nervous, please don’t leave my blog! Keep reading!

Hi honey, I know this must be weird but I promise you that I won’t reveal anything or do anything to embarrass you. I love you so much and I’m pretty sure you already knew that, but I think that after five years a simple “I love you” just won’t cut it anymore. So that’s why I thought that writing you an open letter and letting everyone know how much I love you could be a pretty cool gift. It’s been 5 years since we started this awesome, beautiful relationship and a lot had happened to us. We changed a lot and we grew up together, we became stronger. We had to face a lot of bullshit and we had to learn a lot of awful things by ourselves. I’m not gonna lie to you, there were times where I thought that maybe you’ll get tired of me because everything that was happening to us was so intense and I was being a little extra and a little intense… but those awful things happening to us instead of coming between us, they came at us and we faced them as a team. It actually made us stronger.

Like I said, I know sometimes I can be a little extra, I can cry a little too much and I can feel a lot of stuff and react to it, but you figured me out. You learned to understand me like no one does. And I love you so much for that because I can finally be myself, I can be myself around you and I know that I won’t be judged and most of the time you’ll understand me. And feeling that way it’s something so amazing that I can’t even try to put into words; so thank you.

Being with you these past five years has been an amazing journey. The amount of love and understanding you give me pretty much every day is overwhelming. These past few years had been the happiest time of my life and I want you to know that.

Also, I’m so happy that YOU are my significant other because I couldn’t be any happier that it’s someone like you. Why? Because you are the best human being on the planet: you are kind, you are smart, and you are so funny and thoughtful. Also, you are so handsome, OMG don’t get me started on that one.

I love my relationship with you, I love the fact that we can be together and we can be ourselves. I love the fact that we share some interest but we don’t share all of them. I love that when I’m with you sometimes I feel like I’m by myself and I feel free. I love that you love me the way I am; with all my faults and imperfections. I love that you love how random I am, how I get passionate about things and how my eyes brighten up when I want to do something silly.

I love how much you love me and I love loving you. Because loving you is one of the best things I have ever experienced. I love how thoughtful you are, I love how we can talk about anything and still understand each other, even if we don’t agree. I love that you are not afraid of trying new things, I love how passionate you get about things you like and I love you. That’s it. I love you. I love all of you.

I only hope that our relationship keeps growing stronger as time passes. I want to keep experiencing new things in life with you by my side. Thank you for these past five years and for many, many more…

I love you so much.


Ok, that was intense guys. I wasn’t joking when I said I was a little extra and intense, see?

Anyway, I hope you guys liked how open and honest I was and I hope my boyfriend doesn’t leave me after I wrote a two-page public love letter to him. What was I thinking?

So guys, what do you think? Are you in a relationship? Would you ever write a public letter to your significant other?  What was your favorite anniversary gift to give? And to receive?

Why did I start learning Japanese?

Ok, so today I wanted to share with you why I started learning Japanese a little over two years ago.

Here’s the thing, I love learning a new language and I love when I’m capable of understanding things in the same language they are written, like reading books in English that were originally written in English, reading books in Spanish that were originally written in Spanish an watching TV shows in English because they were made in the U.S. or England. Why? Because I think that there is a lot lost in translation when you are reading something that’s been translated. You are not listening or reading the original words that were meant to be there, you are listening to the words a translator used and most of the times, it’s not the same.  The jokes, they are not the same. There’s something special about a comedy, especially comedy, that it’s really funny in its own language but once it’s been translated… it’s not so funny anymore.

Well, this exact thing here is one of the reasons I wanted to learn Japanese, in order to be able to watch anime and read manga in Japanese, understanding the meaning of every word that’s supposed to be there.

Also, I like learning a lot about different cultures and I think that learning the language it’s a huge way to understand any culture. There is so much said (or not) with words, it’s such a key component of our life that if you are able to understand how people from a culture talk, you learn to know how they think.

For example, in languages like English or Spanish, words aren’t everything. There are a thousand ways to express things, let’s take sarcasm for example. Or here in Argentina, we tend to add so much meaning to the way we say things, you could say the same word twice but if you say it differently, it’s not the same. On the other hand, in languages like Japanese, words are EVERYTHING. It doesn’t matter how you sound while saying anything, the only thing that matters are the words you say.

But you might be asking, what does this have to do with the fact that I study Japanese? Well, I’ve always felt intrigued by the Japanese culture and I have always wanted to know more about it and what better way to understanding it than learning its language? Also, I would love to be able to watch anime or read manga in the same language it was created, without the help of translators. And last but not least? It’s actually really cool, I can read it and I can write it. I like learning languages, I speak English and Spanish fluently and I know a little bit of French and now I’m learning Japanese, which I think it’s pretty cool.

So, these are the reasons as to why I think learning a new language it’s really cool and interesting and why I choose Japanese.

So I would love for you to tell me: What languages do you speak? Do you want to learn another language? Do you think that learning a language it’s a key part of understanding that country’s culture? I would love to know what you think about this topic, so please let me know in the comment section below!  Also, if this is the first time you are reading ITBC please feel free to check the rest of the blog out and subscribe or follow me on any of my social media so you can be notified whenever there is an update on the blog.

Having a cat as a pet

Having a cat is the best thing that ever happened to me. Having a cat is coming home and having two beautiful fur balls waiting for me on the other side of the door with their tails straighten up and meowing for my attention. Having a cat is knowing that I’m never going to be able to sleep comfortably because I’m the one that’s invading their huge bed. Also, it’s knowing that I’m a good pillow because I’ve been chosen to be a place where they could just take a nap. Having a cat is having hair on my clothes 24/7 because my cats love to nap on my closet, on top of my freshly washed clothes and on top of my bed all the time.

Having a cat means I have to deal with some crazy shit from time to time. Means I would have to wake up in the middle of the night because one of my cats wants me to watch her eat. It means that I will have to stop doing whatever it’s I’m doing and play with my cat because she is not going to stop until I pay some attention to her.  It means having to occasionally clean vomit when I wake up or having to wash my sheets because my cat decided to pee on my bed for something that I did that “hurt her feelings”. It means having a guardian 24/7 when I get sick, it means having a living being right next to me for the next 24 hours until I feel better. It means having a pet that just gets it. Whenever I’m feeling blue or something my cats can feel it and they won’t leave my side. It’s not being able to eat chicken or tuna because they will drive me crazy until I give them some.

I know a lot of people think cats are “independent” and they just don’t care about their owners but that’s just stupid. That’s something said by someone that NEVER EVER had a cat before. Why? Because cats love their owners so much. Yes, they won’t act like you mean the world to them, but if they love you they will show it. They will let you know. They will purr their way into your heart and you will feel just how much they love you.

They are not obvious because they are elegant and classy. But the signs are there, they are subtle but those signals exist. You have to be smart enough to learn how to read those signs and you’ll be the happiest pet owner in the world.

Cats are crazy and I love them. I love having cats, they are my favorite pets in the world. They are amazing misunderstood creatures.

I hope you liked this little post where I ramble about the perks of having a cat. If you feel the same way please leave me a comment! Let me know if you have a cat, its name and how much crazy stuff it does!  I would love to read crazy cat experiences that you’ve faced with your cat.

Do you believe in bad luck?

It’s Friday the 13th and we are in the middle of October so I feel the need to talk about bad luck and about if I believe in it or no.

I sometimes feel that as a scientist I shouldn’t believe in in bad luck but I often find myself doing things to prevent bad luck (anti-jinx). I feel really silly about it but I can’t help it. Deep in my brain, I know that doing something, touching a part of my body or saying something won’t prevent things from happening, but deep in my heart I still feel the need to do something to reaffirm that I don’t want anything bad happening. I tend to dismiss correlated situations like “when you break a mirror you get 7 years of bad luck” because those things tend to be antiquated and tend to come from the same men that thought women weren’t supposed to vote because they were inferior to men.  But I also tend to find myself doing something thinking ‘I know this won’t do anything but it if it could actually help… I’m not risking anything by trying’.

I don’t believe that someone can be cursed with “bad luck” but I feel that everybody from time to time feel like they have. Because sometimes bad things happen one after the other and we can’t do anything to stop it. And I feel that we tend to try those anti-jinxes in order to feel like we are in control of these things from happening. Like I said, deep in my brain I KNOW that the anti-jinx won’t stop my ‘bad luck’ but deep in my heart I feel the need to do something that would make me feel better about my situation, that would make me feel like I did something to help and improve my ‘luck’.

Actually, it’s funny that we call ‘luck’ to a chain of events; if those events are good and make us happy, then what we have is good luck. If those events are bad, then it’s bad luck. So, I do believe that a person can have a chain of bad things happening to her/him but I don’t believe there is something like a ‘curse’ going on. I believe in life and I like to believe that energies tend to balance themselves out so when a lot of bad and shitty things happen, then good things will happen because life is a matter of opposites annulling each other.

It’s one of my goals to be able to stop doing certain anti-jinxes I couldn’t get rid of so far. I guess I would have to keep on trying!

Anyway, I would love to know what you think about this topic! Let me know in the comment section below: do you believe in bad luck? What’s your most used anti-jinx? What’s that thing that even you know it’s not true you can’t stop yourself from doing it?

Thank you so much for reading and if this is the first time on ITBC please feel free to check the rest of the blog out and subscribe or follow me on my social media where I would let you know whenever there is a new post on this blog! I hope I see you next time… bye!

Book review: Yes Please By Amy Poehler

Hello everyone, today I’m going to share with you what I thought about Yes Please by Amy Poehler.

I don’t know why but I’ve wanted to read her book for a while. Maybe it was because I consider her a successful talented woman so I wanted to read whatever she had to say (I feel the need to tell you that I have Bossy Pants by Tina Fey on my wishlist). I have never seen her before on Saturday Night Live, but I knew she was a legend; she was funny as hell and everyone on the media loved her. So I guess that without having to see her perform, I wanted to read what she had to say.

I started the book and I completely loved it; when you are going through the pages it seems as if you are having a conversation with her. Even though it’s been edited, it feels raw, real, and honest. On this book, Amy is all over the place. She opens up about a lot of stuff, she tells you what she thinks about certain things in life (like drugs, cellphones, and marriage) and she shares with you things from her past (like her young adult life, her time on SNL and her memories while recording Parks and Rec –careful, if you haven’t watched Parks and Recreation and you are planning to, wait until you finish, because it contains major spoilers).

Like I said before, on Yes Please, Amy Poehler is all over the place, she’s not telling you her life year by year going in chronological order; she goes back and forth between past and present, making it interesting to the reader. One paragraph she’s 10 years old, the next one, she’s 25 and living in New York.

I really loved the book; I read it as if my life depended on it. I couldn’t stop reading because every time I put it down I felt as if I was stopping this amazing chat I was having with her. Her life is so interesting and she has a lot to say!

So, I would have to say that if you loved her on SNL or you loved her on Parks and Recreation, you HAVE TO buy her book. Also, if you want to read the life of a strong, funny, independent and smart woman, go for it because she’s amazing and you won’t regret it. This book will make you laugh and think about a lot of stuff, but I guess the most important thing is that it will inspire you.

So, if you are interested in buying her book, you can do it here where it also is 17% off, so don’t miss this amazing chance of buying this great book with free worldwide delivery! I really enjoyed reading it and it made me laugh out loud a few times.

So, let me tell you, have you read this book? What are your thoughts? Are you a big Amy Poehler fan or a huge Parks and Recreation fan? Now that you’ve read this review, are you interested in reading “Yes Please”? I would love to read your thoughts or whatever you have to say in the comment section, so please leave me a comment below!
