Some things about me

I read this in Monica's Gimmi Smoothies so I'm doing it. She said this:
"one of the rules said that i should tag 10 other blog. but it's okie to break the rules sometimes, no? i would love to tag many many blogs. so, anyone wanna do this tag? you're tagged by me. yes, you :]".

And so I do! :-)
this award requires the blogger to list 7 interesting things about theirself and then pass the award on to 7 other "kreativ bloggers". it's kinda funny that the last tagged i got required me to tag another 6 bloggers. what next? 8 maybe lol. i love tagging and being tagged tho. it's so fun.

I think that as I am a newbie here and only wrote a little until now, I'd better write this even if no one tagged me.

So, these are 7 boring interesting things about myself :

1. Being redhead and Spanish at the same time is not very common, but I never really thought about it years ago. Well yes, only when some stupid boy teased me, so I love & hate my hair at the same time. Some years ago I hated it and wanted to dry it because I didn't want to be different, I just wanted to be a typical Spanish girl. Then I realised I really didn't have many things in common (even in personality) with some of that Spanish girls I wanted to look like before so I started to appreciate my hair for being different & unique. And it's difference that makes us special.

2. I have 2 nieces (beautiful little girls) that are 3 and 4 & a half years old (from 2 different sis). When they were born, I can say I knew what was happiness. I've always be the "little girl" of the family and I'm always playing with them. They mean EVERYTHING to me.

3. My boyfriend is Italian. He's from Turin (in Italian "Torino"), a city about an hour and a half from Milan. We met last August in Dublin (both of us were working there thanks to a "scholarship"). Yes, I live a lot more than 1000 km far from my boy. But we are so in love♥.

4. I started to study @ University Translation and Interpreting with 3 languages: English, French and Japanese as an optative (yeah studied Japanese for a year and a half, and I remember very few things (yeah... chotto!), but watashi wa nihongo ga suki desu! What I really loved in those years was that we also studied the culture (&history) of that countries (in English, French, etc), and I loved to read English literature and study some of the history & culture of the US and Great Britain (&little bit of Ireland too) with "short" texts (from James Joyce to Hemingway, Faulkner, Virginia Woolf, Fitzgerald, George Orwell, etc). I loved Japanese Culture too, I think Asian cultures are so different to us that you can learn, not only about them & their wonderful surprises, but a lot about yourself studying them too. :-)

5. I didn't finish Translation but then studied International Trade, which I finished this year.
From March to June I had my internship and now I am working in the same company (of f*a*s*h*i*o*n, I don't work in design or something like that (sorry but my work is not that funny & interesting =]), but I lovelovelove to be surrounded by inspiring people (and love my work but I hate the peaks of work, and that means: summer & December for the new Seasons... believe me... REALLY STRESSING!).

6. I have true friends in such different countries as Mexico, Italy, US, Venezuela, Belgium, Germany, Canada, even if I've only visited Italy & Ireland. Yes I think I'm quite international. I would love to travel to all of them, and I would if it I had the money (but as you can imagine, I haven't, lol).

7. I think everybody has something good in their soul, and can teach you something. (Ok and then, some people just do not have soul, and "they teach" you how you do not want to be). I agree with the thought: "treat others the way you want to be treated".

Now, I'm not going to tag anyone on this. 1) It's 0:19 and I have to go to work at 6:30-7. 2) I have seen so many amazing blogs I can't choose yet. 3) A beautiful girl has given me a funny award an I will tag some people on it soon! :-) PS. Feel free to do it if you want!
