I want to be a pirate
A pirates life for me
All my friends are pirates
And sail the b. b. sea
I’ve got a jolly roger
Its black and white and vast
Get out of your skull and crossbones
And I’ll run it up your mast
The Pirate Song by George Harrison
After this months of terrible grey and wet sky here in Portugal, today the sun is shining and the weather is really warm… and it feels like it make us awake from the depressive and lethargic state that came’s with long periods of uncolored days. I’ve always been a very much influenced by nature and weather person, and sometimes the Autumn/Winter seasons are really hard to go through, but I think we all have to learn to live with our own ghosts, isn’t it?
I thought a lot about share it or not on my blog, but then I thought that I am the way I am and my blog reflects me as a person, so… A few years ago I was diagnosed with an anxiety disorder. I never speak about it with anybody but my doctor, my mom and my boyfriend. And anyone else knows. I don’t know if it’s ok not talk about that, I don’t know if I should… but the truth is that most of the times I don’t have the enough confidence in myself to talk. And I always think I’m boring people with my problems… so, I prefer repress my speech and shut my mouth up. Today, maybe because the sun is shining again, I felt like I had to tell someone.
This photos were taken by my brother last summer in a party with friends and this is a big friend of mine, one of the since-ever-friends of my life, Celso. Hope you enjoy, ’cause I really loved discover this images in my archives and see how much I was doing great last year and how much this party was funny. But… the sun is shining again outside…
Hi my dear readers ^_^
I’ve been trying to make this post from a while ago, but It has been quite hard to me, once I had to finish my dissertation. And I finished. And it was quite hard. But , hey, that’s the way it is.
So, despite everyone around me already know this, I couldn’t pass without post this on my blog: I TAKE MY BRACES OFF, LOVELY PEOPLE!!! ^_^
No need to say that after two and an half years it was an huge relief… And I’m pretty happy with the result, though the treatment isn’t complete yet and I’ve to use removable braces to sleep.
I know I never avoided smiling because of the braces, I’m truly an easy smile person, but now I feel a bit more confident and I feel my smile prettier… at least I’m not a mouth full of metal anymore ^_^

From childhood’s hour I have not been
As others were; I have not seen
As others saw; I could not bring
My passions from a common spring.
From the same source I have not taken
My sorrow; I could not awaken
My heart to joy at the same tone;
And all I loved, I loved alone.
Then- in my childhood, in the dawn
Of a most stormy life- was drawn
From every depth of good and ill
The mystery which binds me still:
From the torrent, or the fountain,
From the red cliff of the mountain,
From the sun that round me rolled
In its autumn tint of gold,
From the lightning in the sky
As it passed me flying by,
From the thunder and the storm,
And the cloud that took the form
(When the rest of Heaven was blue)
Of a demon in my view.
by Edgar Allan Poe.
