This hobby started when covid first hit and lockdown was mandatory everywhere.I´m happy it continued, it makes me feel happy. I never considered myself a creative type of person. Maybe if lockdown hasn´t occurred, I would have never had the time to explore this type of activity. I was always too worried about wasting time. There is a process of asking myself a question, and … Continue reading Contes de la vera veritat
I haven´t been posting, or writing at all. There was a part of me that didn´t feel like sharing. I´m still feeling the same way, but I think the fact of turning 40 soon has something to do with it. It feels ok to be an introvert. There was one thing that I didn´t stop doing and that is making collages. I like to set … Continue reading My 40 turning-point?
This post took literally a year to be written. The first part was written during 2021 when my job location and my daily routine was different. The second part was written during 2022, where many thing are different, but my addition has not changed. From November 2021 to September 2022 I stopped writing, no WordPress, not even logging in. I kept the basic free WordPress, … Continue reading Trying not to smoke today
So, I’m trying to be a bit creative with all the weed I got. I went through many online recipes about making cannabis oil and I ended trying on that seemed easy to start with. Mixing olive oil with Somango seemed like a good way to start. First, I weighed 5 gr of Cannabis and got a nice Eco olive oil. So I learned that … Continue reading Making cannabis-infused olive oil
When I made this collage many things were happening in my life. On one side, my company was moving outside of the city and that meant a huge change for me when it comes to my daily transportation. On the other side, my brother moved to Spain, to my apartment in Barcelona. At work we needed a extra hand, so I got him a job … Continue reading I´m building a fucking building
The last time I posted something was April 11th. I just didn’t feel like sharing anymore. I lost interest completely, and this is something that has been happening to me for the last couple of years. I start something, I work hard for 1 to 3 months, then I turn the page and forget about it. However, I have to remind myself that when I … Continue reading WTF
I need stimulants all the time. If I´m very honest to myself, I take psychiatric medication in the morning, smoke cannabis every day, both CBD and THC, and drink lots of beverages with natural caffeine. For the last 10 years, I take 20 milligrams of Prozac in the morning. That was prescribed at the moment and it helps with other physical anxieties I have, but … Continue reading I am an addict?
The name of this post has 2 meanings: On one hand, it’s the collage I made as a birthday present for my good friend Gala, and on the other hand, she chose one of Dali art work named “The wines of Gala and of Gods”. So it felt appropriate to name it like this. As usual, it started in my living room table, where I … Continue reading Gala
I absolutely love my plants. Is a process that challenges me each day, but gives me so much satisfaction. My girls started to grow slowly. I placed them on top of the pots where I was going to transplant them later. I thought maybe the Led was too far away. Some of them started to die. Now I know all the things I was doing … Continue reading The evolution of my Cannabis Indoors
I really enjoy making a collage for friends. They choose their own images and I connect those images creating something new. One year ago, this pandemic started and I found myself with a lot of time in my hands. I have over 20 collages at home. I’ve been able to collect so many images coming from magazines, paper wraps, postcards, old photos, which is a … Continue reading I keep making personalized collages as birthday presents for good friends
My last post was on Feb 10th and I have to admit the last couple of weeks were very difficult. I was very depressed, my feelings were all over the place. I would cry in the shower, I would cry in the morning, or even on the bus. It’s funny how as an adult, I can continue to work and live my life, without showing … Continue reading Hiding for a couple of weeks
I´m finally doing this! I bought the Cannabis kit on December 2020, and it took a while to set it up. My kit has a name by the way, Kitlandia.

Until very recently I would only … Continue reading First time growing indoors cannabis
There are different definitions of self-sabotage, but the one that impacted me the most was this one: “The act of destroying or damaging something deliberately so that it does not work correctly” That is how I feel about myself when it comes to relationships or getting involved emotionally with someone, I always fuck it up. There is something about my behavior that changes, and it … Continue reading Do you self-sabotage?
It was the first time I tried the products from Beyond Meat. It’s sold only in one supermarket in Barcelona, which I never used because it sells mostly meat. It was pricey, but I was very high when I got them and didn’t bother too much. As I cook only for one, it was enough for three meals. 1st Meal: First time I salted the … Continue reading Different ideas to make plant-based mince
So it was my roommate’s birthday, and I wanted to try this for a while. To give a collage as a present, where the person chooses the images, and I represent something afterward. This is how it started. I have images already cut, kept in different boxes, so it is very easy to choose. A joint and Apolo are always part of the picture. . Continue reading Making a collage as a present for someone with images I recycle and they choose
I wanted to do something vegan, easy, cheap and fast. The first time I tried to make hummus and tahini was unsuccessful. The tahini was too strong and the hummus too dry. So I continued to buy the processed hummus. I´m really trying to cook more, save money, use less plastic, all of it. So I tried again. The second time was delicious👏 I was … Continue reading Making Hummus and tahini for the second time – Quick vegan snack
I think about Chip often, and I ask myself if maybe I overreacted. The thing is that he made me feel upset. I needed something from someone who couldn´t give me more or didn´t want to. I´m always telling my friends to surround themselves with people who have a positive effect on their lives. Sometimes we need to listen to ourselves when we advise others. … Continue reading What if…?
First, I had Netflix for a couple of years until I was bored of it. Then I subscribed for the free trial for HBO, and after the first month, I decided to keep it. During 2020 and the Covid surprise, I ended up having both at the same time. Last December, I was trying to save money as well as using my time in a … Continue reading Netflix, HBO or Amazon Video Prime?

I have to admit that the outcome was not 100% right, but they were still delicious! I followed this recipe: https://www.foodiewithfamily.com/cauliflower-wings/ There´s two reasons why my outcome was not well: First, I had to mix flour, water, salt, and granulated garlic, and add the cauliflower florets into the bowl to gently toss to coat thoroughly, but I didn´t do that, nor spread the florets out … Continue reading First attempt at making vegan cauliflower teriyaki wings
I´m not usually hungry when I wake up, and most of the times I´m in a hurry. Before, I used to have a coffee and a croissant while going to work, now I found a much healthier routine.

I´m always asking myself this type of question. I was depressed for many years and it was difficult to enjoy life in general. Now that I´m older, I found many tools that help me appreciate life and I don´t feel depressed anymore. However, I´m always analyzing my behavior, is like constantly checking for red flags, in case that feeling becomes overwhelming again. So whenever something … Continue reading Why do we do the things we do?
I liked this guy, but he is too complicated and he is giving me a headache. I don´t quite understand his behavior, but is definitely passive aggressive. He doesn´t say no to see me, but he is always too busy to arrange a day and makes sure to emphasize how little important I ‘am. If you want to see someone, you make the time for … Continue reading Man can easily give me a fucking headache
Back in 2010, after working at Ski Resorts for 6 years doing winters back-to-back, I decided it was time for some sunshine. I had a degree in Hospitality management, so I thought it could be fun to work at a hotel. I applied as an intern and I got the internship in a beautiful island in the Florida Keys. The place was huge, with hotel … Continue reading The Female Barry
I don’t usually make vegan burgers, I buy them at the supermarket, but I really want to start cutting on processed food.

This time I decided to go with these ingredients: 1cup red lentils 2 1⁄2cups water 1⁄2teaspoon salt 1tablespoon olive oil 1⁄2medium onion … Continue reading Making Vegan burgers
I was raised with meat, especially red one. Never thought about not eating meat until my twenties. Living in different countries allowed me to try different ways of feeding myself. It took me many years to stop eating meat. It began gradually, simply because I couldn´t afford the good stuff. Barbecues are key in my culture. For many years, it was a special treat for … Continue reading From eating steaks like a mother fucker to being 95% vegan
A couple of years ago, I either didn’t have any breakfast or I had a coffee with a croissant. I didn’t really pay attention to it. Since I started to cut the meat, I realized I needed to eat better throughout the day to feel more energy. During 2020 lockdown, after spending so many months at home, my breakfast routine started to change. These are … Continue reading My vegan breakfast
So December 2020 was a bit of an emotional rollercoaster, but not in a negative way. I created the Worldpress account on a Saturday and by Sunday I had the website live.

All sort of things were coming out, like stories from 10 … Continue reading Get out of your comfort zone
