La Muse est apparue

Dreammy/ Marzo 23, 2017/ French, Personal

Hélas. J’ai eu une semaine à oublier. J’ai mal dormi trois jours sur cinq, j’ai reçu de mauvaises nouvelles professionnelles et je n’ai pas perdu de poids malgré ma diète stricte. Je me suis senti vieillir chaque jour. Je me suis sentie tellement seule, inquiète, défectueuse. Tellement découragée. Cependant, La Muse est apparue. Je le nomme « La Muse », car c’est

En lo que tomamos y dejamos.

Dreammy/ Marzo 13, 2017/ Español, Personal

He tirado varias toallas. Ahí está la toalla del novio universitario con el que formaría una familia con nenes, casa y perro en la puerta, el de la chica con infulas panqueques y parietales rapados, la cantante de banda rockera que soñaba con ser la nueva Pat Benattar de Los Olivos. He tirado la toalla con convertirme la nueva Cindy Crawford

Le défi d’écrire dans une autre langue

Dreammy/ Marzo 9, 2017/ French, Personal

Voilà! On va commencer le 2017 un peu tard, mais avec un texte écrit entièrement en français. Qu’est-ce que ça veut dire? Voici un texte qui n’est pas traduit, qui a été spécialement créé et pensé en français. Ce n’est pas facile pour moi, car le français est une langue que j’apprends depuis 2009 et c’est plus un défi quotidien

Montréal Chronicles 3. – What a nice neighborhood!

Dreammy/ Noviembre 29, 2016/ English, Personal

My neighborhood is alive. It’s a bursting with life from dusk until dawn. I was silly, believing that it would be the same as the silent group of buildings I was living in, in the National-Capital. People were mostly minding their own business, aside from neighbors from Hell (I believe I talked about them before. Those crappy students were partying

Montréal chronicles 2.- The Metro

Dreammy/ Noviembre 29, 2016/ English, Personal

  The metro scares me. I arrive in there and keep myself as far as possible of the boarding line. I have the feeling that someone will appear to kick me off the platform, in a Francis Underwood fashion, and bye bye Dreammy! No, I have not found news about this kind of accidents but it still scares me. I

Montreal chronicles 1.- Heat wave

Dreammy/ Noviembre 29, 2016/ English, Personal

I am definitely going from an extreme to the other. I just remembered last winter in Québec. I’ve wanted to take my Sunday breakfast at the nearby coffee shop. It was incredibly cold outside (-28C but it really felt like -38). I’ve decided I would not be staying at home in spite of the polar weather; because the loneliness of

The happiness’s corner

Dreammy/ Noviembre 28, 2016/ English, Personal

Some place in my new apartment holds all the things that I love, which I’d always carry in my bag if I were a nomad: books, paintings, toys, some souvenirs from my home in Peru. Only a couple of bookstands keep the things that I really care about. This special place is also space where I let my eyes linger

The Plan

Dreammy/ Noviembre 28, 2016/ English, Personal

Oh my gosh, I left this place abandoned! I’ve been doing video blogs, studying at the university and planning to move to another city. Not exactly in that order. Not with equal priority. (You can check my videoblog’s first season here. In Spanish only) As you can see, I did not have the time to write nor to paint and,

Crónicas de Montréal 12.- En lo que esperamos

Dreammy/ Octubre 30, 2016/ Español, Personal

Uno se aferra a las rutinas. A veces sin darse cuenta. Aunque deteste repetir actividades, como yo. Porque las rutinas dan una sensación de tranquilidad, de orden, de estabilidad. Sobre todo en momentos donde la incertidumbre es parte de lo cotidiano, como en mi caso. Mi vida, como siempre, está cambiando. Nunca puedo tener certeza del rumbo que tomará, sólo
