As you may have already noticed, I'm no longer posting stuff here on LJ. I've decided that I'll keep this account just to keep up with the people in my friends list and some communities.

If you wish to contact me or anything, you can find me here on Twitter (where I speak mostly in spanish), here on Tumbler (where I speak mostly english) and here on Ravelry (where I barely talk at all).

If you have an account in any of these places, please let me know. Thank you.

Guess who played runway model yesterday? Yep, me. A friend called in a favour and I ended parading up and down the catwalk in a fashion show worthy of Lady Gaga.

This episode felt kind of meh to me. There were many many many things that felt off, and for a reunion, it was kind of sad. Its only reedeming quality (IMO at least) was that it had some intrigue.

My friend Tuti and I went to buy some yarn and while she was looking for what she needed I was interviewed by some journalists, so I'll guess I'm going to be on chilean tv soon. Its nothing interesting though; they asked me about which yarn we were buying and what we planned to do with it. I don't really care about being on tv but the idea is a thoroughly amusing one for me.

Today I also finished my first adult sized sweater. Its a little bit tight on me but it fits my sister-in-law perfectly, and, as it was intended for her, I can be very proud of it. Which I am. I can't wait to give it to her. She was very excited about it when it was still unfinished.

Apart form crocheting, I've also been teaching private english classes - kind of boring let me tell you, but hey, money is money - and I've been thinking of offering myself as a beta for the Werewolf Big Bang. I'm good at picking up mistakes, but english is not my first language and I have pretty weird tastes for what I read so what may be interesting and "good" for me may not be for others, so I'm not sure if it'd be a good idea yet.

joxem needed fingerless gloves 'cause her hands get cold when she draws and I, being the awesome friend I am, crocheted her some following this pattern. They're rainbow colored because she's a bouncy and cheerful person who loves colours.

My friend Javiera has a bone malformation that it's very painful when the weather is cold. When she saw the convertible mittens I crocheted for my cousin, she begged me to crochet her a pair too. She needed them to be longer than the ones I crocheted for Eduardo and I gave them heart shaped buttons instead of smiley faces.

Four months, 53 pages, and 14.895 words later, I've finished my seminar thesis. I handed it yesterday and the only thing left to do now is wait. Let's hope I did good.

It's been a while since I've posted crafty stuff and I've been meaning to upload the last two things I've finished. They're not that exciting but they're still something. The first one is a hat I made for myself and the second one is a yellow submarine key chain I made for my friend Frana who loves The Beatles.

On another note, today I went to buy some materials for a WIP I'm working on and when I got to the crafts store, it was swarmed by old ladies. I know old ladies like their yarn, but I never thought I would see so many yarn-loving old ladies together. One of them even asked me to take of my shawl so she could analyze it. I was both amused and scared.

Do you know what is more awesome than watching this video? Getting to play on the piano stairs. They put some in the Plaza de Armas station here in Santiago. I skipped down them yesterday and it was awesome. It made my day.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I have to go shower now so I can go hand in an essay so I can sleep. I need sleep. I stayed awake all night writing said essay and my eyes hurt.
