Finally, this weekend was slightly different. On Friday I had an interview to work for the same academy I work now, but in Barcelona. The night before, as nervous as I felt, somehow, I managed to fall asleep. I woke up at 3am in the morning because my eye hurt and itched. It turned out that I couldn't open it properly as it got really swollen. Luckily, when I woke up next time at 8, it was swollen to a reasonable size. When you have an interview, you really wanna look and feel good. I knew I couldn't wear my contacts or make up. But I thought, fuck it! I'm gonna own this! No spider is gonna steal my thunder ( yes, the spider bit my delicious eyelid ). Ok, I admit, I've know I had that spider in my room since September. I didn't wanna kill it just in case, it could turn me into Spider Girl. That would be so useful now! I could do an excellent Spider Girl with the coolest costume, of course!
So, the interview went great. It was tiring and stressful but I got the job!!!!!!!!!!!! I had to take a nap right after but I am so over the moon. Thank God, I didn't mention the spider story as my boss suggested: Tami, please just don't mention the spider. Just don't!
I still can't believe it but it looks like in September, I will officially become a citizen of Barcelona. Beach, sun, that spicily sweet atmosphere, vegan restaurants (not just one), possibilities, variety, Avenida Tibidabo, The Shadow of the Wind and much more to explore.
Right now, my only responsibility is to save up as much money as I can!
On Saturday I woke up at 9, took a birth control pill, realized it was Saturday and went back to sleep. When I woke up the second time for real at 11, I took another birth control pill. Of course after that I've noticed I accidently took two. I was like OMG, am I gonna die? Well, I didn't but I was so dizzy the whole day. Try to walk on the sun, without the contacts and feeling dizzy. I'm such a ditz!
I had a sushi and frozen yoghurt with Sarah that day. I love spending time with her. While we were eating the frozen yoghurt, someone was shouting my name. Sarah was like Tami look! A boy was running towards me and when he got to me he hugged me for a long time. I felt my heart was melting and for the first brief seconds, I wasn't sure who he was until he looked at me with his huge profound almond eyes, and I knew it was my little Nico. A 5 year old I taught in my previous job. Man, how much I loved him. I remember the first couple months in the academy, Nico wouldn't say a word and when he finally did, he said Tami:-) He was hugging me and I chatted to his parents for some time. I told them I was going to Barcelona and Nico asked me: Why did you leave me? I almost melted into an ugly and guilty dust ball. How can you explain to a child why you left? Without even saying goodbye...
After that I felt pretty shitty. Luckily me and Sarah wet to a park and just lied on my flowery sheet. I'm not a nature person. I don't like most of the plants, hate smell of grass, always feel itchy when I am close to something green, but Sarah is definitely worse! She was freaking out over a ladybug which are not that bad! We had to leave soon, because she felt like all the insects of the world were crawling over her:-) Apparently, in Saudi Arabia, people stay mostly indoors.
I'm gonna stay with her for couple weeks in July in her adorable studio right in the centre before I go home and to Barcelona. So glad she is letting me stay!
Couple days ago, I had an interesting chat with my flatmate, Ana. She is a buddhist and hates Seville, she thinks it lacks the spiritual energy and vibration. Apparently, centuries ago, shamans hid certain crystals in different places in the world and they somehow didn't hide one here. Ana said couple weeks ago, there was a big reunion of shamans from all over the world who came to Seville to fix it. I don't know if it's because of the lacking crystal, but my energy level is super low here. I could just spend my days in bed, rolling over, dreaming, reading and watching TV. So, someone better bring that crystal!
