sunrise

It's saturday morning, and I never thought I'd find so many people on the streets.
For the first time in a long while, I got up and out of the house before sunrise. If I'm lucky today, I'll get to see the sunrise. Always shiny, full of hope. When I looked at the sky, I saw an odd picture. The sky looked like a stripped blue T-shirt.The clouds were dark blue and the sky was light. It reminded me a lot of those polos that were once fashionable.

On the streets, small groups of people walking around reminded me, yes, yesterday was friday. Meaning, most people were out enjoying their night life. Honestly, I don't have one. I'm not an owl nor a cat. I enjoy going out at night once in a while, yes, but I like sunrise better. Even though I haven't really been waking up early lately, I still prefer dawn to night.
The sun is rising, The diference is huge. The sky is still stripped, but now, in a different way. Let's think of it as a change of clothes. Yes, I'm a girl, I do think a lot about clothing. So now it wears a blue and orange stripped T-shirt. I don't like that combination too much, but given the orange tone is so light is almost looks white, it somewhat looks good. Porto has an airport, so it's not very uncommon to see planes flying by, but this one looks extremely funny. The small aircraft (it looked small, doesn't mean it was small) flew exactly along the line that separeted the dark blue clouds form the orange sky. It looked like one of those kids contouring the drawing.
The hills in the distance looks like spirit mountain or something like that. I'm not sure if there was fog in town today, but there, the fog made the hills look like it was placed in the clouds, a holy place. What I would give to have a camera here.When the sky gets all too bright, it means the sun is up and the fog is bound to disappear soon. The meaning of watching sunrise is now gone, but the goal of sunrise itself has accomplished.
It's a new day, a day like everyday, but also, a day like no other.

11-11-11

11-11-11 is my new unlucky day. No not friday 13. Friday 13 has not given me much bad luck. But 11-11-11 turned out to be one of the unluckiest days of this year. I'm not going to say it was the unluckiest of my life, because I still have some time to live on, but it really could be.
I hate it when I try to do something and nothing gets done. That's today. I had Medicinal lab evaluation. The procedure went well, all right. But I didn't have time to finish writing my report. I was trying to apply for an animal experimentation course for which I did not want to pay at all. So I tried pass the matter onto my teacher and supervisor, but then, today, I got their answer. Their project can't pay for my course, so I have to pay it myself. I wasn't interested in it from the beginning, but I know it may be important for the experiments the next semester, so I guess I just have to take the course and pay for it myself. I tried to return home, well, to my parents' house, but CP went on strike again and there is no train. I didn't want to go home by bus because it was very expensive, but either way, the last bus was already gone by the time I arrived at the train station.

NaNo Month

November is here. It's NaNoWriMo (National novel writing month). I have so many things piled up that I've forgotten all about this writing event. There I go, late, but nevertheless, enthusiastic. I'm pretty sure I won't be able to make it to the end this time, but who knows, maybe a miracle happens and I actually get to win the event this year.
Other than that, both new seasons of NCIS Los Angeles and Nikita are going on strong. Those shows make studying while watching TV totally worthwhile. I so want to watch this week's nikita episode. The last one left things in a bit of a cliffhanger, now I want to know what happens next.
