hey everybody! I know this was supposed to be written everyday but I couldn't do it over christmas or new year eve. You know how things work during those days, food, presents, more food, wine, lots of wine and food again. Portuguese Christmas is chaotic. I guess I'm kinda lucky, because I have a small family only the close ones come to my house (my sisters, brothers in law, nephew and grandma). I'm not even going to talk about new year eve or the day before that. Things got a bit crazy and messy.
So I'm gonna do all the days I left behind in one go.
Please don't be mad.

Day 6: Five ways to win your heart:

  • Food (I'll insert some typical portuguese delicacies for christmas)

Day 8: Write something you struggle with

I don't know is this is a thing or not, but I struggle a lot with social situations. I hate talking to strangers when I go shopping or with anyone I'm not comfortable with. I call it social anxiety, but again I don't know if this os a thing or not. Sometines I even avoid leaving the house, I say that I'm sleepy or that I just can't go because I need to do something.
When I know I need to go out and intereac with the lady at the coffee shop I kinda panic inside (that's why I always go to the same bars or coffee shops, because I already know the employes and most of them know me).I remember in school I hate it when I had to do presentations and I still do hate it. I feel sick, like I'm going to vomit or something. Sweaty hands, legs shaking and the sudden feeling that I'm being constantly judged.

Day 9: Post some words of wisdom that speak to you:

“Be yourself; everyone else is already taken.”
― Oscar Wilde
“Count your age by friends, not years. Count your life by smiles, not tears.”
― John Lennon
“Don't be pushed around by the fears in your mind. Be led by the dreams in your heart.”
― Roy T. Bennett, The Light in the Heart
"Do more of what make you happy."
― Sphere
“The only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing.”
― Socrates

Day 10: Write about something for wich you feel strongly.

Photography means a lot to me even though I don't show it very often I'm always taking pictures and immortalising moments. My favorite thing to photograph are strangers. I can't talk to them without panic inside, but I can see how their feel. Photography shows what you're really feeling. You can try and hide it, but it will always show the truth somehow.

Day 11: Something you always think 'what if' about.

I always go back to him. That one boy that got away so easily. I go back to that "what if" constantly.
What if I had stayed? Would we still be together?
I always go back to our "what if".
What if I hadn't break yout heart? Would we be happy now?
What if you had fighted for us? I wish you had opened my eyes.
Sometimes I wonder if you ever think of me, if you remember our little things like listen to that song or watch that movie. I wonder if you ever miss me. I do. I still think about you and all of the "what ifs". I still miss you. I miss our long talks about stupid stuff that always ended in some deep dark shit. I miss your friendship. I miss you being beinh always there.
We're still friends, but we're not really friends anymore we both know that. We just share the same group of friends. We see each other almost every week, but we don't really talk. I guess that's ok, it's the easy way to move on. We still share the same table, we still call each other friend, but we're just strangers with a past.
You're happy now and I am happy for you. That's all that matters.

Day 12: Write about 5 blessings in your life.

I think my family is the great blessing of all.

Day 13: What are you most exited about?

Honestly I thought it would be the new year eve but it's not. I guess I'm not excited with anything in special...

Day 16: Something that you miss:

This might seem stupid, but I miss the rain and the really cold nights. I've always liked rainy days, they make me comfortable and warm inside. I also miss the sound of a crackling fire while watching a movie.

Day 17: Post about your zodiac sign, and whether or not it fits you.



  • Strengths:

Responsible, good managers, disciplined, self-control, dark sense of humor.

  • Weaknesses:

Know-it-all, unforgiving, condescending, expecting the worst.

  • Likes:

Family, tradition, quality craftsmanship, understated status, music.

  • Dislikes:

Almost everything at some point.

  • Best environment:

Positive work situation, urban environments with culture and style, anyplace to be in charge.

In terms of personality everything is on point.


The Capricorn is most often a serious lover preferring to take things slow and steady. You won't see this sign jumping into anything headfirst. Taking relationships one step at a time is the way of the Capricorn.

Words can be few with this personality, yet action speaks volumes. The Capricorn values deeds and will go to great lengths to express their affections through them. They're great gift givers and don't bat an eye at the costs of spending a fantastic night out. Genuine and sincere, you can take what few words a Capricorn does say to the bank.

Everything checks!

Friends & Family

Combining a strong wit and a love of humor, the Capricorn makes for terrific company for those they choose as friends. They will surround themselves with people who are honest, loyal, and like-minded when it comes to working values.

They cherish loved ones and will go any distance to help a friend or family member out. Traditional by nature, the Capricorn loves nothing more than holidays, such as Christmas, that bring people together with a variety of activities.

Although a Capricorn isn't apt to have a large social circle, those included in this sign's life will find someone who is steadfast and true. Emotional displays are not common for a Capricorn. They would rather show how they feel through deed than express by word.

I don't like christmas, but I do like to be with my family.


Capricorns are resourceful and manage their time and money well. Every now and then, the urge to spend some hard-earned cash can see this sign packing some large shopping bags with fun and frivolous items out of the store. But as a rule, caution goes hand in hand with the Capricorn making practical purchases more likely than anything else. Multifunctional items are definitely favored.

Couldn't agree more with that.
