A Saving Up-project

Well, since I’m back in Denmark I can start saving up to go on a new trip. I’m thinking of going to Peru for two months in December, just around Christmas. But it is kind of a project to go back home, looking for a job and start saving up for a new adventure. The thing is that just like Spain, though it isn’t so bad as in Spain, it’s difficult to get a job even in Denmark. So right now I’m having some help from the municipal, but it really sucks. So in the moment I’m looking for something, well anything. Right now I’m working for free, yup I have to just to get money from the municipal. It’s so complicated. Really. And I don’t like the place where I’m working. Luckily it’s “only” for 4 weeks. But then, the municipal was supposed to give me money, since they can’t even help me with an appartment. I’m just curious why they haven’t even given me the half of what I “thought” I was supposed to be given. I’m lot even able to pay for getting back my suitcases and pay my rent for the room I’m having at my sister.

But as I wrote in a post for a long time ago, I’m going to give Peru a second chance. Since my last trip was a huge failure in so many ways. And furthermore still have so many problems with my family-in-law. (I don’t think it actually can get any worse!!) I’ve just forgiven my mother-in-law for what she did to me in Peru (yes, I know I’m pretty slow on that point), and when she was claiming that I was going to cheat on her son… And then she freaking tells me that I’m destroying her son’s life. It does not make any sense. And I know something else like that will be coming up next time.

But anyway, I’m looking forward to go to Peru, and YES I might be very optimistic but I believe that I’m able to save up for Peru. It’s actually not that expensive.. So who knows? Maybe this time I’ll be able to go and see the more intresting stuff. And I’m looking forward to spend my New Years Eve once again, ABROAD!

It was expected

That Rajoy wouldn’t keep his promises he made to win the election in Spain the 11th of December last year. Honestly I don’t think that Spain will be able to survive that much longer with a politic such as the PP’s. I think it’s way more complicated than what people think. Something is going to change. Unfortunately I don’t think it’s going to be the government. I think we should go further and say that Germany needs to be changed. No more Merkel, no more Rajoy. As I’ve indicated in a previous entry I don’t like the PP. I mean… I hate everything about that party. To it’s politicians. And as they predict in the papers around Europe, 2013 will not be any easier. Though we are in crisis, people don’t need to suicide. People need education because it’s the future, and we need to invest. The other day I read, don’t forget that I’m being quite critical; the economy in the States isn’t too good either. Which definitely affects Europe.

The crisis is being a success!

The crisis is being a success!

 

Now, I wonder why Germany did give so many money to Greece. It’s like saying: You can always “borrow” money, we know you’ll never be able to pay back, but we’ll always stand by you”. In my opinion we should throw Greece out of the EU. Besides, we know that the Greek Government never will change. I think that the EU doesn’t throw Greece out because of the politicians who are trying to save the rest of a political victory.

So what about Spain? In my opinion the EU will not be able to survive without Spain. But the people here are desperate. And we can all write signs saying that we need to see actions and so on. The thing is that Rajoy and his people don’t give a damn. The king… don’t get me started! He is allowed to play a political role, but my question for him would be: Do you like to see your own country like this?

And what comes to the EU.. I have no words left for it. But I guess it’s what we can expect…

 

And I found this Facebook page (in Spanish), which I like because of its propaganda. Sometimes its content can be a bit over the top:

Por un País Libre de CoruPPtos y sin Rajoy. (For a country free of coruPPtion and without Rajoy).

 

A aprendre Catalá!

27 Nov

Time to get started with Catalan! Just about time. I always like to give myself a new challenge by learning a new language. The reason… well, I live in Barcelona, which is reason enough. The fact that I speak Spanish helps, but I think that pronunciation is going to give me a bit trouble though.

I think that it is important to learn the “local” language. In this case it’s Spanish AND Catalan. It’s an important part to get integrated. It can also be a bit frustrating because sometimes Spanish is not enough in Catalunya. In the other hand, I recognise the problem of integration also from Denmark. And I don’t want to be that part. So I have to get rid of all negative thoughts and just learn. Also the fact that for me it has always been easy to learn a new language. So Catalan will be no exception! (I’m kind of looking forward to be able to change the number from 3 to 4!!)

I really wanted to go to have classes and meet other people. (I know that I can have classes for free). But in the end I decided to borrow some books at the library and get started. I think that teaching yourself something can be better than a class. I mean, you can just take your time learning! But the negative thing about it is that if you have questions or doubts, there will be no teacher. I guess it depends of the way you like to learn.

 

 

The more that I open this book, the more crazy I think I am!

 

Incredible! I actually managed to find a Danish – Catalan dictionary!

 

 

So… A aprendre Catalá!
