It's my party and I cry if I want to...

By the title you probably knew this but on Sunday was my Birthday!!!!! and it was one of the best!
Usually I don't get excited for my birthday, another reminder of failures and dreams that are not yet come true, but this year I guess it was different. I was in a total different mood, which started back on February when I decided to take a pause on my projects, and re-evaluate what I'm doing (more of this on my previous post)
I didn't have spectations for my birthday, but oh my, what a fantastic time I had. Lots of laugh was involved, a journey to the past in the nostalgic train, and the most wonderful pressies a girl can dream! Do you want to see them? Ok, ok, I know you do, but today I'm only going to show you what mommy dearest gave me:

A pretty card handmade, a notebook and box of Hello Kitty, two tops that she made for me, a pair of sock, and my two favorite books of the year (till now, but I simply loved them, and the covers are breath takers!)

I must work on my review of these books, so wait for them later this week, probably tomorrow and the rest of the pressies after that!

Simple Moments 16-22

It started like this, a post that you wrote, decided to give it the final touches later, saved as draft to be then forgot. I think I have like 5 or 6 posts like that, I've been wanting with all my heart to catch up here on my sweet blog, but for some reason, I've been so distracted. Back on February I decided to take a pause from my projects, I just simply couldn't focus on them. There was something bottering me, a little voice on my head that keep telling me that I needed to find something more. You see, on February was the anniversary of the School where I work, It turned 57, and the usually give a diploma and a fan as a present to the people who turn 10 years for working there, they gave something too to those who turn 15 and 20. 
I turned 10 years, and I wasn't sure to recieve something since my anniversary was on january 17th, and the school anniverasy was on February the second, anyway, I was the first person the mentioned, the first person to go to the center of the auditorium, the first person to recieve her diploma and be photographed. I was embarased -in a good way- because I was distracted when they call my name, but happy at the same time. But then it hit me, 10 years in the same job, my first job of all things, 10-freaking-and-awesome-years!!!! And then a co-worker was cherry on the top, she turned 50 years!!!! can you believe that? 50 years! which left me mouth dried, brain hurting, heart screaming, what if this is my life? what if this is what I'm going to be doing for the next 40 years?
At that precise moment I wanted to cry, but I kept my big smile. Still when I get home, I didn't cry, but I keep thinking by most of the night, what if? what if? WHAT IF?!!!!!
That was on February 7th, and by this time, I'm still working on it, but I did something more, I found something that probably is going to make me happy, I discussed it with best friends and mom of course, and the four of them support me, the four of them believe in me, and mom even told me that she was so happy that finally i found something that is going to make me so happy and that I'm going to love. James went even more far by telling me that she was so proud of me. It's really nice when a person that you consider your little sister tells you that.
I'm not going to tell you my new plan, or at least not yet, because of course I don't want to jinx it, but of course it has to do with one of my favorite things in life.
Apart from that, I've been reading non-stop, i'm on my 22 book of the year, and I'm going to share with you some reviews in the coming days, I'm on a pause on my new project, but the previous days I've been searching and comparing options and doing most of the information-market search- kind of work, just to know what I'm going to get myself in. I have a clear idea now, and I couldn't be more excited!
If you read till this point, thank you, these are a few photos of my "Simple Moments" project.

Freedoms Song Wolf Rescue...Can YOU Help?

There are so many sad things in this world, people starving, people suffering, people, people, people! But while there are lots of organizations which their main focus is to help people, the number of organizations to help Animals is small in comparition.
I'm writing this not to preach, because certainly I'm not a role model, or an example of ethical way concerning to animals. I love my dog and cats dearly, I treat them as part of my family, and yes, they are totaly brats, they behaive like little kids, and demand the attention they want all the time. But my love for them is not enough. I'm not a vegetarian or vegan. I eat meat, not much, but I do, I eat chicken and other products. I tried to be more concious about it, but I've been failing over and over.
But my diet is not on trial here. What I want to share with you is another situation, a situation that is absolutely sad, and is the way some People think its their right to treat others, specially Animals.
Examples are so many that every single time I saw an image on instagram or by other social medias, I want to throw up, I want to scream, because I can't believe that us-humans. are capable of such horrible things.
But just like there are awful people, there are others who have the biggest hearts, and an inconditional love. People like Terry and Karen Lilly, which project to help, rescue and create a Sanctuary for Wolfs and wolfdogs who have been suffering abusse.

If is in your heart, please take a look to this campaing, if is in your possibilities contribute to it, or spread the word!

The Cahill Witch Chronicles Trilogy / book review

Their mother was a witch too, but for Cate Cahill, being a witch felt more like a curse. Her younger sisters  Maura and Tess were witches too, and Cate must do everything in her hands to protect them, witches are wicked, they should be punished and send to asylums, prison or be death.  In a world where The Brothers were in charge, and women were no more than simple objects, with no right to think for themselves, or read books because an intelligent woman was as wicked as witches. Cate would discover that she and her sisters are part of an old prophesy, and she must embrace who she is, even when that means to give up her true love.

With the Brotherhood persecuting witches like never before, a divided Sisterhood desperately needs Cate to come into her Prophesied powers. And after Cate's friend Sachi is arrested for using magic, a war - thirsty Sister offers to help her find answers - if Cate is willing to endanger everyone she loves. Cate doesn't want to be a weapon, and she doesn't want to involve her friends and Finn in the Sisterhood's schemes. But when Maura and Tess join the Sisterhood, Maura makes it clear that she'll do whatever it takes to lead the witches to victory. Even if it means sacrifices. Even if it means overthrowing Cate. Even if it means all-out war.

A fever is spreading. As she reveals her powers to help the people, Cate is about to become the most wanted witch in all of New England. Meanwhile her beloved Finn doesn't remember who she is - she's torn between protecting him and encouraging him to fall for her again. And as Tess' visions become more deadly, the prophecy that one Cahill sister will murder another looms ever closer...

My thoughts on The Cahill Witch Chronicles by Jessica Spotswood
Rating «««««
I’m not sure if it was last year or two years ago that I started reading Born wicked, and quit after the first chapter, not because I didn’t like it, but I got distracted by other book, major mistake I must say, because the moment I re-took this book, OMG, I couldn’t put it down, and the same happened with Star Cursed and Sisters’ Fate, I wanted to know what was going to happen with the sisters, if Cate and Finn would be together at the end, I was just so overwhelmed, and totally in love with the story. I felt offended by the way men treated women, and of course I was absolutely angry with some events during the book that made me hate some characters and love others.
I loved the fact that Cate, our protagonist and the one who is telling the story, even when she was 16, was selfless, always thinking in her sisters, always taking care of them, and not only that, she used her power for good.
Maura was the kind of character that you love and hate at the same time, that you want to hug in a moment and slap her on the next. And Tess, I just simply adored her.

If you love romance, young adult book with paranormal, and of course witches, this trilogy is totally for you, and I couldn’t recommended it more, it was great!.

The Road This Far...

Una foto publicada por Dulce (@dulceisreading) el

Hello my dears, as a former fan of Supernatural, I always loved the beginning of the last episode of the season, when they put “The Road this far” I thought it was brilliant, and of course I wanted an excuse to use it somehow. Back to Supernatural, I lost track of it since season 6 when they changed the time and never found what day was on TV. Anyway a couple of weeks Warner made a marathon of the last season and I saw the last 4 episodes, I ended more confused but it was good to see my favorite brothers again, maybe I should made a huge marathon with the previous seasons and the ones that I’ve been missing? Probably I would.
Anyway, back to business, the classes started once more and of course I spend the previous days working on my classes and trying to solve a major problem that came my way, ok maybe I’m been dramatic, but imagine this: one day you arrive home, and see this mysterious envelope, inside a letter from your cable company telling you that for the new dispositions of who-knows-what (government problems) they are not going to be able to continue working in the state you live, they are going to keep the company open in other states except the one in which you live!!!!
My first reaction was fear! What if I couldn’t watch my shows while having my lunch? So I kept reading, they offered us to switch to other company, free of charge of course. The company was one that I knew very well, since I used to have their service and stopped because I moved to the place I live and they had problems with the constructing company, so it wasn’t because it was a bad company or because I had problems with them, they started working in the zone where I live a year ago so…my point is that I was happy with this offer and decided to take it, so I had to go to the Cable company made the new contract and then I have to cancel my phone and internet service because the new company offers me internet and phone service for a better price.
I must say that I’m very pleased with the attention of the three companies and the best part? I didn’t spend a single day without cable, internet of phone service J but since I was kind of worry, I couldn’t concentrate properly on write a post, or even check bloglovin, I’ve been kind of distracted, but right now I’m catching up.
I skipped some days in my projects and have to come to terms because I was feeling so stressed for them, specially The Letters to 2015, I decided to take it easy, and keep doing it no matter what, even if I miss a week or two.
I read 14 books this far, and maybe I’m not going to make a video for every single one of them, maybe I’m just going to post the reviews and that’s it, or maybe not, I’m still deciding on that. But like I said, I’m not going to stress for that either.

So have a nice weekend guys and Happy Valentine’s Day!!!!

An Act of Kindness / 01

One of my resolutions for 2015 is what I call An Act of Kindness each month. When I wrote my resolutions, I wasn't sure how I was going to manage this goal, but I knew that I wanted to do simple things that could make someone happy, bring a smile in their face, something that maybe wouldn't be a big thing, or take lots of effort but at the same time that could mean something.

Two weeks ago, I was able to make my first Act of Kindness, even when it was a very sad one.
I was walking home from work, and I saw this skinny dog, stray dog jumping, trying to read the top of the garbage container at the entrance of the section of houses where I live, of course animals for me are a sensitive subject because I love them, my two cats are rescue, one from an abandoned building the other from the garbage.
When I saw the effort of this little guy, I was almost in tears, so I decided that I had to bring food to him. Usually the little store between this entrance and my house is closed by the time I get home, but that day, lucky me, it was open. I thought, well, maybe I can buy him some bread or something, fortunately when I came inside the store, the had dried dog food, and the bag wasn't that expensive either, just exactly what I had in pocked money, so I bought the bag.
I went back to the entrance and didn't see the dog, but I heard a little boy telling his mom that a dog was inside the garbage container, the dog when heard people coming jumped afraid, he even drop the plastic bag that he was licking and almost run until I call him.
He didn't came to me because he was afraid, and that broke my heart, but I keep calling, telling him nice things and he get closer, not enough to be touched, but at least enough to see what I was doing. I put all the bag open for him to see and smell, and then walked away to give him space to get closer and eat. When I turned to see, he was eating and turned to see me as if he was thanking me for the food.

I'm not going to lie, when I arrived home, I cried like a lot, because this little boy was so unlucky, but at the same time, I was happy that my sweet Kenji is healthy and even when he's totally spoiled, he has a home and is loved, same as my cats Manta and Berlioz.

Maybe one day I'm going to be able to help all those poor dogs and cats who don't have a home, but at least just for that day, I made that sweet guy happy.

This is a picture of my sweet Kenji sleeping in the sofa next to my bed, wearing one of his favorite t-shirts, this is how all the doggies in the world should be, warm and sleeping without concerns because they are loved!
