the thesis....

The thesis...
the big moment has arrive..the moment where i left the lab and all the exciting lab work and spend my days sat at home, looking to papers, books and all the available much life changes when the moment of writing the thesis finally arrives...Now i live in constant state of guilt...if i go to the movies, or to a party (at hours that i couldn't possibly be working) i feel what we define as the "catholic guilt"...I feel that i should be here at home,working every second of every minute of every hour!! :(
It's an inglorious task, but it has to be done...and i am doing my best to do it, to finish it, oh hell to demolish it...lolololololol
But i wish i could implement one rule, one single and easy rule, i wish it would be forbidden to work on weekends!!!

and that's it....
i will post more as soon as i get more and more desperate! lolololol
till my next post!

It's's really really hot!!

and then there are ppl that still don't care about global warming....and i have to say....we should all care....just listen to this....In portugal it's Leicester it's 30 C!! is it just me or someone else also see that this is not normal....we are talking about England (where it rains more or les every other day) and Portugal (where you are supposed to wear sunglasses even in the winter) i really think we should all care very much!!
But having said this....this is the best summer i had in the UK in 3 i am liking it!!!
we have done bbqs, sun tanning in the it feels good, we know it's bad...means that the planet it's all screwd up, but at least it's hot and sunny!! lololololol

i guess there are days where one can't stop feeling annoyed! and today it's one of those! how annoying, i woke up feeling lazy and tired from the super late night of work yesterday, and then it's this feeling of being here.. stuck....without going anywhere, without knowing what's happening next... i feel stressed, and annoyed! anyway, i think i am feeling the influence of not going home for Easter this year... and i am missing it ...5 days of L without going anywhere? not sure i will manage but ok!
will try to do some constructive over the break...maybe my dear boyfriend will have some super hiper mega nice idea and will do something really nice and cool!!

anyways, have a very nice Easter everybody!
Boa Pascoa para todos!! :)

Combat and core

description of the class in one word :OH MY GOD...
and that's it, i thought i was going to die...but i will start from the begining... yesterday after work i decided to go and try one of the new classes for the spring term Combat and core, ( well at least new for me), and what happens is that this class is literally 1hour of deep suffering...and sojust like that 15 min after the class started i was about to die...couldn't lift my hands anymore couldn't lift my legs anymore...just couldn't do anything....and for 1 second there thought that was it....the class is very good don't get me wrong..i guess that if your goal is burn calories that's the one to go...most definetely! but be careful!! lolololol
till next post!


everybody knows why i keep this blog...well at least i like to think that i know why i keep the blog..
1)to let my friends know what i've been up to
2) to complain about life and every little dodgy aspect of it...

But, i've come to realize that i haven't been a very faithful writer...i come here i write a few things and that's it...i don;t say a lot....i actually came to realize that i say nothing...or at least nothing that my faithful readers i'm sorry...i promise i will try to keep my focus....and just because of that my next post will be a truthful insite of how my body combat class was!!! but that's next....not just yet! :)

and because i know she's going to ask....PHOTOS!!!

Anti- climax....

i guess eveybody knows how it is...after some amazing holidays, coming back to work it's a bit like an anti-climax thing...u don't feel energetic, u feel like u want to change job, life, house, but slowly u come to realize that u just to adjust some effort and get back to life...but it's hard...i woke up with that feeling of..."what am i doing here""why do i have to go to work?" honestly..lolololol
but at least i have decided that i will get the strenght and do my final experiments...and like Obama sas, can i finish this PhD on time??? YES I CAN!

till my next post!!
