Chuvas no ES

Vou confessar que eu fiquei bem feliz quando começou a chuva. Eu adoro chuva, principalmente nesse verão insuportavelmente quente de Vitória – que não é a cidade mais quente do Espírito Santo, perde tranquilamente para Cachoeiro do Itapemirim e Colatina.

Depois de alguns dias, até eu comecei a me incomodar com a chuva: ter que dirigir de óculos, ter que carregar sombrinha, não poder sair de casa de sandália/chinelo…

No decorrer da semana, tivemos notícias de deslizamentos, crateras que se abriram em estradas, rios que transbordaram e etc. No entanto, eu pensei que o caos estivesse apenas no interior e que eu sobreviveria na capital com apenas alguns alagamentos. Eu errei. Hoje, eu achei que fosse morrer, ou que meu carro fosse parar ou que, pelo menos, a Gata morreria de fome.

Depois de uns cinco minutos em prantos olhando para a via de acesso a minha casa completamente submersa e de um telefonema com a minha mãe, eu tomei coragem e vim para casa. Foi terrível. E digo: nunca mais saio de casa com uma chuva dessas: a menos que seja realmente uma emergência.

Ferien

There was a time in which I would be desperate for the beginning of my vacation. Well, it happened a lot when I was a kid and all I had to do was going to school – it was awesome to have time to just have fun and not having to wake up early was an amazing plus.

Nowadays, the only thing I want when vacation comes is to travel (a different way of having fun), but it demands a lot: saving money, planning a lot and finding good company. Well, it is obvious that having good friends would cover the finding good company part, but most of my friends are in love with the beach and, well, I’m not. When I was younger I was all about party hard all the time and at the age of 27 all I think about is relaxing and finding time to sleep well – which means spending money on a good bed. I haven’t learned how to sabe money, so I haven’t traveled recently.

So, now I am on vacation and all I wanna do is read a lot of books and study for the tests to come next year. Isn’t that crazy? Well… I also have to… actually, I might have to plan my moving out at the beginning of January, but it depends on other things so… I never thought I would become someone who would intend to study during vacation time.

I can see things have changed over the years…
