#100happydays days 24-31

This past week was really hectic as I didn’t have much time because of many interesting things 🙂 Day 24: Ok,  I admit. I like Gepe’s songs. They aren’t that bad, you know 😉 Day 25: Sushi day with colleagues!!! With some colleagues from work, we often have a sushi day near payday 🙂 Day 26: Meetings, meetings, and more meetings. I have serious yet exciting projects at work that I am hoping to making them come true, and truly…

#100happydays days 20 – 23

Day 20: Half-day off 😀 . Just that. Day 21: I went on a special barbecue with my coworkers. Despite that it was too warm, I had fun simply talking with other colleagues about nonsense. Day 22: My cousin has just started working and he invited for lunch to celebrate his first month at his job. We went to Uncle Fletch’s, and it’s probably among the best burgers in Santiago because: they offer Belgian beers, burgers are great, and you…

I think it’s always fair to recognize and acknowledge good things. So, today I was listening to the radio station I often listen when I am at work, and there was a catchy and good song playing. As I didn’t know the band, I looked it up using Shazam and… I was shocked to know they were Chileans. Ok, what’s so special about it? They sang in English, which is something really uncommon for Chilean musicians, who tend to perform…

After Polish class, I stopped for a while near the Metro station on my way home, and took this photo of a Church nearby. Autumn is coming and I like it (especially because it is better to wear work-friendly clothes with milder temperatures).

See, I finally managed to update in a weekday 🙂 I met my longtime friend Nury after work at Bombón Oriental, a small café in downtown Santiago, where we had some Turkish coffee and baklava. No Turkish delight for us, but we did have a nice chat about our hopes and dreams 🙂

Am I neglecting this challenge? Not so. Yet, this week was really tough in every way, but it’s a good thing that the following weeks will be much calmer and relaxed. Day 10: I had an awful stomach ache which affected me most of the week, yet the good thing about it was staying in my bed guilt-free for most of the day (despite not taking any sick day and still having to go to work). Day 11: This inspiring…

#100happydays: days 4-8

So, most of this week I got home either late or tired enough to write blog entries, but I never forgot that the 100 happy days challenge was still on, and, despite bad days, there are still good things happening in my life. Day 4: No actual picture, but I got to share a really beautiful moment with two good friends from High School (practically, the only people from there with whom I keep a regular contact). After a tough…

#100happydays: day 3

Keeping up with this challenge, here is why I am happy today: Today at work, we were announced that from tomorrow, we’ll start working 30 minutes earlier which means, as well, we will call it a day 30 minutes earlier (even though I already start and finish work earlier than most Chilean workplaces). Yes, people were complaining, but for me, it works great. I am more productive during daytime, and that means I can slack off the afternoon with no…
