Ghost friends

When I was a single woman if after a couple of dates with a guy he stared to not call me, nor to appear on the weekends, we were over. No more dating, and not even care about that boy anymore. I'll take him out of the key chain! and eventually move on. I'll still talk with him time to time, but I'll no care. Now, What to do with a ghost friend? the type of friend that is never around, and when is around is because is "connivence" for him. That friend you feel you can not ask for anything, because you never know what to expect. That friend that just call you when is single again. Can you say then that those types of friends don't show interest on you?; therefore should you brake up with then and move on?

In general we have this idea of friends are unconditional, and we don't have to be around each other in order to be a good friend. It is also common to think that you have different types of friends; for example, some friends are your confidants, others are great for introduce you to people, some are great for partying or travel, and just a few are good for everything. Not all boys were husband material, nor all your friends are best friend material.

Now let's compare friendships with romantic relationships. In my perspective the most relative difference between friendships and romantic relationships is the intimacy. In general what I expect from a friend, any type of friend, it is similar to the things that I expect for my couple: availability, commitment, and that the effort for spend time together come from both sides. Is important to me notice that people want to know about me, want to be around me. I don't like to be the only one that is doing something for see you, talk to you, or know if you are still alive.

When a guy don't take you seriously, nor really care about you, you never now what to expect; as a result, you end it up in an on- and- off relationship without a tittle, rights or even an end. You can not count with that person support, or loyalty, also you can't depend on that person. With a ghost friend I feel the same. I can't count with that friend because is never there for me when I want, is just there when he wants. A on-and-off relationship type boy shows up when he feels like, a ghost friend too.

In oder to move on with your life is better leave some things and persons behind. Like whit boys, is important to take a ghost friend for what they are. Learn how to read them, and even become their ghost friend too. For a friendships, as well for love relationships, you need two people in the same page, if not it is better just keep looking. NEXT!

What we started a drunken night out

I met Justin in Medellin in May 2007, while he was traveling around Colombia before moving to D.C to attend school. He visited Bogotá and the coffee country before arriving in Medellin, where he stayed at a hostel where one of my best friends, and occasional I, used to work. While I waited for my friend to finish her shift before going out, I saw him first and everything about him grabbed my attention. I remember asking my friend who he was but she was in a bad mood and wanted only to go out and dance the day off. I was glad when I saw him again at the bar I was dancing with friends. Yes, he was good looking and a good dancer but there was something else that made my eyes glued onto him. It was kind of embarrassing— it’s not the Latina seductive style to stare— but I couldn’t stop. Anyway, I’m not really a shy person so, in the end, it didn’t matter that much. Eventually, we found ourselves dancing with each other, pretended to talk and kissed.

We run into each other again the next nig…

In the Land of Freedom

Since the arrival of the first European immigrants to North American the country known today as: The United States of America started to be built on immigrant blood.From mass immigration though Ellis Island, New York, in the early 1900’s to crossing the border walking the deserts of Texas or Arizona today, the idea of America as the land of freedom, where the sky is the limit, has attracted and continues attracting immigrants around the globe. For many years, in order to control the unstoppable immigration; which has apparently transformed into a problem, thought the years different immigration polices and strategies has been used being Secure Communities being one of the most recent.Although Secure Communities has effectively deported dangerous criminals, the program should not be enforced nationwide as a federal law because it breaks apart American families while reducing the cooperation between illegal immigrant communities and local police.After the attacks on September 11th the D…

The first of many

When I was 14 years old I was ready to start to work. According to the Colombian law I was not allow to work with out my parents permission. My dad was against that idea, so I have to wait while felling jealous of my brother Agustin, whom just 2 years older than me, was working at my dad's uncle electric store during the holidays, making money.
As soon I turned 18 I stared the job search. After sending a couple of resumes with the blank spaces where my experience should go, I got finally hired at a restaurant. I was thrill, the time of make my own money and grow independent have finally come!. The restaurant, "La Parrilla de Martin", was an Argentinean style stake house just a couple of blocks away from my house and in the same bus route from my college. I set out my schedule: I will work 3 lunches and 2 nights, for a total of 5 shifts a week. 5 shifts a week and full time school didn't sounded that hard for the 18 year old me, but in reality it was impossible.
