I think the main problem is that I no longer consider this blog a normal activity. It is outside my routine. As if I needed a very good reason to write it. So it happens that I come here only when my heart is pounding me to be heard. When I say my heart, I don't mean in a cheesy way, but in a broader. When I feel something important. So, to keep it short, all this time I have had plenty of things worth mentioning, but most don't make me want to scream to the four winds.

I like giving my posts as dishes. Three parts. Something warm to open it. Something nurturing that keeps you healthy. Something delicious to keep your joy.

I love my new life. That's the short answer to "What's going on?" Last time you heard from me I was leaving a boat. I wish I didn't thought it as a sinking one, I really do. Anywho, now it is another life! A Better Life. At first I could say I was working less for more in fun proyects. Well, that's no longer the case. I keep charging more for my time, but now I'm working as much as in the last job. Hopefully becoming solvent in the process. And now it is not only fun stuff, but amazing, challenging things. Things I can't share (because of a NDA). Things I dream of doing and thought I would be doing in 5 or so years, but no, life said it is Now or never. So I bought a ticket to work-almost-beyond-my-reach. A funny thing is that people are either welcoming me to this realm or thinking I'm on vacation, even though I'm actually working my brains out. Right now, my head has tons of ideas, fighting for brain's time. Having 4 proyects isn't easy. Another good thing of this new life, is that I'm surrounded by friends! Vive le Resistance!

I ought to know better, but I keep making the same mistakes. That should be the mantra of PSP. This thing sounds like a cult. It seems to embrace you. First the "bomb love" how much you will be better. Then "tough love" showing you exactly where you make your mistakes. Then it teaches you its own vocabulary. Finally it asks you to renounce to your vices. Ok ok, maybe the last part isn't true, but that's how it went with me. Now, I'm a preacher of PSP. Take into consideration that I was never into CMM. What can I say? It just works. I can see where it won't work but for everyday work it is the way. I'm still trying to tropicalize it to be a bit more SCRUM friendly, but hey, I'm still an amateur in this things.

I... I care deeply for karina. I have come to need her at my side. I have let her know my soft spots, my weakness. And I think she needs to know, really know, how much I feel for her. That's why in our anniversary I stepped into a region, that a year or so wouldn't have imagined crossing; She received a Serenade! She wept and wept. I'm still trying to understand why that simple event is so powerful. Anyway, I like to gift in groups of 3. At her birthday and the 14th I did just that, so that's like my signature :p This time I also gave her a "teddy hipo". Fluffy things are cute. I'm sure she hugs her every night. At her neck was a small collar with a little moon. I know this will sound corny but I call karina, "lunita" (moony).

Life's good.
