Job interview = fail.

Well, the name of this post tells everything, but I need to write about this fail experience. This week, my last week on vacation, I received a call to a job interview. I decided to go, because that was my opportunity to being an English teacher.

At the time scheduled, I was there. It was a cold Monday afternoon, but I try to seem happy (although the flu was killing me). I just met Taís (school coordinator). She was the person who would talk to me. Well, we entered in a small room and I’ve seen a book that made me happy: Summit! Well, I told her “I know this book, I worked with the top notch… they are from the same collection”. Them we started talking. Taís is a nice girl, with a beautiful smile and a lot of enthusiasm! I liked her – and she liked me. We talked about my life and about the school – a nice place! So, she told me she liked me and ask me if I would like to work there. That was my opportunity, the salary was low, but that was my opportunity and I said yes. So, she said I would to do an English test… and that’s was the fail part of my job interview.

I wanted them to print it, and started to fill out. Gee, it was “only” 4 pages… I haven’t had studied and I was feeling pain all over my body because of my flu… So I started reading… Exercise 1: phrasal verbs. The only thing I remembered was “broke down” (because Brian said it in a Backstreet Boys video). Exercise 2: filling the blanks – that was so so. Exercise 3: write a composition. Exercise 4: the same. I was so tired, that I wrote the first thing that crossed my mind.

As a result: my speaking was great (as Taís told me), but my test was terrible!
I thing I don’t need tell you what happened before, right?!... it’s better I keep myself on the old job and start studying English again…

Post for nobody

I'm here, back again. One year later, I'm trying one more time.  Maybe because - sometimes (or should I say almost never?) - I feel that desire to come back and write a few words in English. Practice makes perfect, isn't it?
I'm breaking my back working these days: I'm teaching amost 40 hours a week, writing a book, running my website, helping a teacher/friend of mine with a project, taking my gratuation course... Life is not easy but it is so amazing I enjoy this journey.
What about you? What are you doing with your life? Let me know!

This is me!

I could say tons of things about this song and this video, but I can resume it in three words: this is me!  AWESOME! :O


While the band in my head plays a striptease...
Finally I've bought U2 360º at the Rose Bowl! FINALLY! And watching this again, I still can’t believe I was in a concert of this tour. So fucking amazing!!! 
Today, I cried again. This time it was One fault (we are carrying each other and I feel so stupid about it…) As they used to sing "Every beauty needs to go out with an idiot"… I wish I met all I have to meet in this life… 
Well, about the concert, U2 has the power over me and I’m speechless again. There are no words to express my feelings about the happiness and the peace I feel listening to these guys...
I've found grace inside a sound  I found grace, it's all that I found  And I can breathe  Breathe now
