I'm here! I'm here!

Sweeties, I miss you all so much! How are things? I'm not reading my flist very frequently (let's face it, last time I did it was *Dec. 2nd*) but I hope you're fine. Down here things are pretty the same, I'm still studying a lot for job tests. It's finally getting on my nerves, with strong headaches almost everyday and the beggining of a breakdown just the other day. No, no tears this time, just feeling tired all the time. I wonder when I'll have a decent night of sleep again. Anyway maybe next Monday it'll be partially over, I'll know if the 1st test had good results.
A new job is really needed, specially because there's a new bitch on the block, er, there's somebody already trying to occupy ex-boss place, can you believe that? So far president's secretary is behaving but people had already noticed she'd love to be our new boss. Dudes, no one deserves that, she's a very controlling woman and it'd be a new nightmare!
At home: mother decided our Christmas would be yesterday, so last night we exchanged our gifts - yeah, we're insane like that. It only happened because my grandmother (who lives with us most part of time) is going back to her apartment to stay with my uncle for few weeks and my mother thought she'd end up giving to him my father gifts, which were at our home - probably she'd carry them with her to give them to him only at Christmas. Whatever, everybody now has very nice gifts such as clothes, jewelry, books... I gave myself Potter 1st book, an English version of it, and my parents gave me the last one. BTW I still hadn't enough time to see Goblet of Fire but recently the first 3 movies were on TV so I enjoy myself re-watching them.
My oz_magi fic is almost done, and although there are parts of it that I'm not liking too much I think it'll be fine soon. Had anyone already finished writing them?

Hi sweetie! We've been missing you, too. Me especially - - you're my Lucius buddy.

I'm sending good thoughts your way that the tests don't get you down.

Thanks Maddie - I've been missing my late nights looking for anything Lucius, er, anything Jason instead of sleeping, lol - I'm internet deprived! ;o)

And you are being properly missed in return! *hugs*

I retrieved your Oscar Niemeyer 'Contemporary Art Museum' card just before I headed for the faculty to 'defend my title' (so to speak). It made my day, it really did. I won't be going into 'gory' presentation details here right now - besides, I think the 'storytelling' will be more truthful in a few days when this new 'state' (?!) settles. And cocky self-assurance wears off, haha.. Anyway - I did it.
Of course, you can't have a good thing without a bad - got some uneasy news from the home-front (indirectly, 'cause you know me on the subject of 'home-front' *shudders*) and that got me thinking...so much that I'm STILL awake, at 4.15 am, even though I've only had 6 hours of sleep in the past 2 days. More on that as well in an email that is to follow in the next couple of days, when I'm done doing 'rounds', visiting all the people I've been neglecting ever since this whole 'crusade' started. All work, no play - that's me. *sigh*
What else..? Oh, right! Study, don't falter (Don't I sound annoying? Ah, well..I can't help myself) - nervous breakdowns are part of the thrill. :P I'm still keeping ALL my fingers crossed for you.
Next - did I mention I love your mother? 'Cause I do. With 'premature Christmas' (oh, that doesn't sound right, haha :P) and all.
Finally - I can't wait to read your fic. I have to say that it's been quite some time since I read any Oz fiction - damn you, QAF. Damn you for overflowing my Friends page with unhealthy quantities of hotness. *sighs*

Sweetie, I really need to write you a true message, but as always I have that time controlling (lack of it) problem, lol
Anyway I'm glad you'd got a card, I sent about 20 of them, one every day from Monday to Friday, did it slowly drive you insange, getting a new card every day? ;o)

And I'm so proud of you right now, girl!! You'll never forget that day, I'm sure of that - and I hope it'll erase the bad feelings concerned to family issues... :o)

But now I'd finally finished my Oz Magi story - well, I hope so, I'd sent it to somebody to be edited, maybe she'll like it and won't find too many English mistakes, lol - That's a good thing, though, now I'll have more time to read my flist.

And I think I'll have very good news concerned to job tests this week, probably next Wednesday... let's see...

Drive me insane? Are you serious?? You know I can take A LOT more than that, haha ;) I LOVED each and every one of them, Adriana, thank you SO much for the 'tour' through the city you're providing me that way. :) [Oh, how I love my colleague Oscar.. LOL] BTW, I got 6 of them so far and am ecstatic that there are a lot more arriving my way. *does the happy dance - samba? - LOL)*

Break a leg on Wednesday!! (or whatever the saying is when you're expecting [good] job news ;o) )

I sent *14*, sweetie - at November (24, 25, 28, 29 and 30) and this month (01, 02, 05, 06, 07, 08, 09, 12 and 13), probably they're still arriving.
About job tests... unless a hurricane or volcano decides to happen this night and change my life forever I'm totally sure I'd passed in the first of them!!!

Oh, they're definitely arriving! I got the one with the bridge (and YOU on it ;o) ) yesterday. And - that is some bridge. Wow. The first thing that came to my mind was: how would it feel if fog settled all around -- it would be like riding on a cloud! A bit scary, too, I guess.
*patiently awaits GOOD job news with you* :D

AND I finally got them all!! It's been SO wonderful, Adriana, coming home and finding something (other than bills and shopping catalogs) in the mailbox every other day.. *happy sigh* Thank you once again!! I'll have to 'return the favor' ;-)

I'm glad all of them had finally arrived - you know, I understand your feelings perfectly, lol (bills are not funny, really!) But take your time, girl, do something like that when you're in the mood! ;o)
