Hey again, I'm sosososo sorry for such a huge gap between responses. :[ I've just got way too much going on here and haven't had much of a break. :[
Dublin sounds amazing! How is it there? Are you having a good time? :]
I've been busy mainly with heaps of doctor appointments for relatives and also myself. I've just been feeling under the weather lately but I think it's probably just a lot of stress and not eating as well as I should be. sweatdrop But on a happier note, I've been somehow feeling clearer in my mind lately about my life. I think because I've been stressed, I've been putting more thought into my attitude and approach to life in general. I guess I'm looking at the "bigger picture" a bit more now. Things that used to bother me (little things) just don't worry me anymore. It's actually really nice. :]
Hey, I'm so so sorry it's been so long. sweatdrop I've just been so busy and by the end of the day, I'm just too tired to even think about Gaia. sweatdrop Thank you for the kind comment. I'm just trying to take one step at a time. There has been so much going on with my relative being ill plus other dramas with other family members. It's been really physically and emotionally draining for me, especially when you have a family member who's threatening to commit suicide all the time when you don't comply to their demands. sweatdrop I think my iron levels have also dropped again so I will probably have to go back onto iron supplements. I'm also now looking into becoming a veterinary nurse, so that's exciting but also stressful because I have a lot of people relying on me. sweatdrop
How have you been? I hope the last few months have been okay for you. ^_^
Maybe you could make some kind of Mexican potato bake with chili? I think that would taste really good!
Thank you for teaching me that! So it is "golden lights" rather than "gold lights", translated. ^_^ That is interesting about how the Christmas tree is more recent in Mexico. Do you use real trees or fake/plastic ones? We do have real ones here but most people I know use fake trees. 3nodding Yes, I remember you told me you used to be Catholic. I know lots of people who grew up with a religion but are no longer religious. 3nodding
That's a great idea! rofl I have found websites where you replicate what your Rubik's cube looks like and it will tell you which moves to make to solve it but I would really love to understand how to actually solve it by myself. whee
It's okay to know geeky stuff. whee Sometimes it's really handy to know odd facts because it can help you understand other things. Knowing a bit of science, for example, can help you predict outcomes and find solutions for problems much faster. Science is in everything we do - turning on electricity, cooking, exercising, nature, gardening, technology, medicine, etc. so knowing geeky things (which often relate to science) is really just understanding how everything works. ^_^ (Sorry to go on about it but I'm really passionate about science. xp)
I've never been to a restaurant where they serve snails but if I ever do, I will definitely try them! I've been called "gross" and "disgusting" so many times for wanting to try different animals but people are so ignorant. Different parts of the world eat different things. If I'd been raised in another country, it may be normal for me to eat cat or dog. What makes cats and dogs any different to cows or pigs? To me, they are all animals. I would only be worried about eating a venomous animal but that's because of the venom. whee One of my Mum's friends recently went to Thailand with her husband and they ordered what they thought was duck but it didn't taste like duck. When they asked, they found out they were eating monkey!! They were very upset about it. To be honest, I can understand being upset about not getting what you wanted but is it really so awful to try something new? I think people can be very close-minded sometimes. sweatdrop
Do you like the humidity?
Thank you! I hope my asthma will be okay, too. The best thing I can do is strengthen my lungs and I do that by exercising. I still take my puffer with me, just in case, but I'm usually okay. ^_^
I've been pretty okay, thank you! My relative who has cancer went for his first radiation session yesterday so that was hard but we're all trying to be supportive and make jokes and be happy. ^_^
