Cronicas de Montreal 13: Varias cosas

Dreammy/ Abril 22, 2017/ Español, Personal

Semanas extrañas, extraordinarias en ésta ciudad que nunca me deja de sorprender. La primavera ha llegado antes de lo que usualmente estaba acostumbrada y éso me ha levantado los ánimos en muchos sentidos. He dejado el aislamiento y me he entregado al cotorreo, a los paseos, a las compañías multiculturales que ésta nueva aventura me propone. Pero como me han

Montréal chronicles 8.- The networking fever

Dreammy/ Abril 11, 2017/ English, Personal

Torrential rain. I check my online agenda. Today I have a meetup after work in an unknown place downtown. I hold my breath to cross the city with this horrendous rain. This type of meetup is called 5 to 7 (5à7) because it lasts literally from 5 pm to 7 pm or even later. It’s basically an outside work activity.

Montreal Chronicles 7.- Mont Royal

Dreammy/ Abril 11, 2017/ English, Personal

He looked at me from his cup of coffee and asked:  so, you really don’t know Mount Royal, do you? Well, no, I answered, a bit ashamed. I have been living here for more than three months and I hadn’t had the time to visit all the landmarks of the city, not even at the time when was only a

Montréal Chronicles 6.- Those stories and their owners

Dreammy/ Abril 11, 2017/ English, Personal

Never in such a short time, since I am living in this city, have I had the opportunity to meet these many people who wanted to share their stories with me. Some of them were told in a noisy bar, others at the bus stop, or even in the middle of an English class. It made me suddenly realize that

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
