Beautiful Stranger

“Before we became friends, we were strangers.” ― Anthony T. Hincks

As you may remember from previous posts… I’m kind of a Sith, I’m not a people person, so my friend list is not long, but don’t get confused my friends are kind, intelligent, crazy, unique, amazing and funny, among others.

Today, I was thinking about when all of my friends were strangers for me, and when I have been a stranger in other people’s life.

So, I invite you to think about your closest friends, and go back on your memory when you were strangers, how you stoped to being strangers, and even better when you became friends, real friends.

I remember when I became friends with all of them, even when closest friends stop being friends and went different ways and we became strangers again… irony of life… so embrace those close to you, be grateful and enjoy life.

I have also met people that have just crossed my path, thought me something and then just as they came, they went away…

I remember one of them who I will keep his anonymity, this person gave me a piece of advise that still today keep in mind:

“Everyone is afraid of something, but that’s not an excuse to hurt the people that care about us. Those that love you won’t walk away of your life, they will face their fears, and trust you always…”

This person said those words to me in a critical point in my life, well now that I think about it, it was not that critical, but it was exactly what I needed to hear back then, and those words come from a beautiful stranger.

Back to School…

“It is better to know how to learn than to know.” ― Dr. Seuss

Monday…the worst day according to Garfield. Why is this day so far from Friday, and Friday so close to it?…

Today on October 16th, 2017 Edy has gone back to school, yeahhhh finally he is starting the German course!, we thought this day was not happening, for us *Edy and me* learning the language is priority. However, we have met people that they have been in Germany longer than 10 years and they are still not speaking better German than us!!!

So now I kind of understand why locals hate that we speak English or another language with them, I mean, you are coming to their country to live, to have a better life, and you are allow to do it, but still not bothering to learn their language, that’s rude!, people don’t be rude, if you are going to another country to live, learn their customs, their culture, their language, you might not like, you might struggle but trust us it will be appreciated! 🙂
I know it will take time, but it is understood, that’s something we have learned in less than 3 months, and don’t underestimate your ability… your only enemy is yourself!

Edy on Saturday, with a hat my mom sent us by courier and his badass T-shirt 😛

Viernes 13…. 🙂 … las noticias de esta semana:

Oficialmente soy residente en Alemania, ya no soy una turista más… mis tres meses como turista terminaban el día 31 de octubre, después de varios intentos en migración sin éxito alguno ya tenía dos opciones:

Opción 1: Salir de Alemania e ir por tres meses *así lo estipula la ley de Alemania, debes salir 90 días para poder regresar como turista* a Suiza, Noruega, Suecia, Finlandia…. Bora Bora, jajaja

Opción 2: Regresar a la Gran Tenochtitlán… lo cual hubiera sido padre ya que así podría ver a mi Lula quien cumplió 8 años ayer… le pedí a la vida que le mandaran de regalo una ardilla o un gato para perseguir un rato… mi mamá me dijo que vieron un gato durante su caminata matutina, pero no la dejó perseguirlo, pero sólo porque no sabía que era la vida cumpliendo mi solicitud.

Bueno, ayer 12 de octubre, estoy como residente, así que esas dos opciones no serán posibles por el momento, aunque espero Edino me lleve a Bora Bora pronto 🙂

P.D. El título es referencia a la película de zombies, no tiene nada que ver con mi comportamiento en Alemania 🙂
