End of hitch


There's been 2 long and solitude weeks. Good bye for now Harding!

I am ready for action now! I will go to spinning, go biking & roller skating, go to the theatre and cinema, hang out with friends, go downtown Madrid, eat some delicious food and spend some quality together with my boy!

Bring it on!

Me puede explicar alguien...

...como hago este trabajo asi de bien con lo mucho que lo odio?

Yo no entiendo!

Explodez!

...de nervi si de stres!
Dupa atatea noptii de pierdut timpul si ture lejere, mi s-a intamplat lucrul care cel mai mult il temeam: sa cada curentul, sa pierdem conexiunile si sa trebuiasca sa pornesc totul pe aici..procedura de pornire a unitatii , a tuturor sistemelor si aparatelor - cromatograful si generatorul de hidrogen- parea complicata, insa problema a fost cand nu puteam conecta UPX-Boxul (Power supply for PCs),... primele 6 ore au fost teribile, stres si mult stres!

Cu ajutorul electricianului Colin a inceput sa mearga totul, numai ca "marele incompetent" de coordinator s-a gandit ca upx boxul asta e stricat (ceea ce nu pare a fi adevarat), s-a panicat si a dat ordin sa instalam altul de rezerva...nah, acesta nu era nici el nou, este uzat si a stat multe ore asta noapte la incarcat.
Acum il testez sa vad daca tine presiunea si voltajul, apoi in caz fericit conectez toate calculatoarele si programele, what a horrible Thuesday-Wednesday!

Citesc

Citesc "La alargada sombra del amor" de M. Malzieu, un autor francez a carui traiectorie literara in acest moment este in plin apogeu. Am citit si binecunoscuta "La mecanica del corazon", o poveste pentru oameni mari.
In primele 2 pagini am descoperit frumoase insa triste cuvinte, o fraza care mi-a atras atentia este:

" ... Es espantoso el ruido de un corazón cuando se rompe. Como el de un huevo a punto de abrirse aplastado por un bulldozer de porcelana...."

Pe scurt

| Am văzut| Come Dine with me (Aberdeen),
|Am ascultat|Rhianna,
|Am citit| 20.minutos.es & material pentru Approaches to Language & cateva pagini din Mil Soles Espendidos de K.Husseini,
|Am făcut| Inventariu in container,
|Am mâncat| cod afumat,
|Am băut| apa, ceai verde si limonada( destul de diluata),
|Am gândit| ca siguranta este o chestie relativa,
|M-am bucurat| ca am vorbit cu tine,
|M-am enervat| ca n-am inteles pe indelete ceea ce trebuie sa fac la proiectul pentru master,
|Mi-am dorit| sa fiu acasa,
|Click| bloguri & facebook & articole pentru master,
|M-am mirat| ca iar n-am facut nimic si timpul trece si sunt platita sa stau degeaba aici, in loc sa fiu acasa, alaturi de cei dragi, insa a job is a job...pana imi gasesc ceva mai convenabil!

12 hrs


Here, in front of these PC, I spend almost my entire 12 hrs shift. Meanwhile monitoring Trip Tank volume on another PC, I learn how to cook delicious receipes that I will apply them when I get to go home and try them together with my dearest one.
Sunt inca aici, inca bine, un pic nerabdatoare sa termin si sa ajung acasa, la Madrid.

...This is not a drill

04:00 : The fire alarm sounded loudly in my unit and everywhere on the rig.
I though this might be a false alarm...but when the radio-operator send his message to everyone to go to their Master Point (Accomodation's Level2) , I thought : This is for real!!
Noticing that my hands are shaking, I saw myself grabing my glasses and my backpack and one last thought was to phone call my bf, but he was not answering....I said that I will call him later, quite an optimistics, then I locked my unit's door and started running to my Master Point.

In this short period of time I was just thinking about going to the boats and abandoning the rig...I got in the Cinema Room, almost everybody was there, I felt my heart was pulsating fast and "furious" as I didn;t know what all the fire was about...When you don't have information, then you don't know of what to believe.

Then we learn that the fire started in the plant room, on the 4th level of accomodations, started from the fan system, and after an hour of waiting in the "safe place" , the OIM tells us that we are safe there, that teh fire and smoke were cleared and that they are doing an investigation...
In that crucial hour I said a few prayers and thought about leaving this job for good! I just need time to relax now, I am very stressed yet, my knees are hurting me and I am thinking about how am I going to get asleep today?

I am safe and glad that the fire did not spread fast and that I survived all this nasty episode.

This job sucks, actually what sucks is that these things happen and when they happen to you , then you start feeling deeply nervous and unpatienced to get home...but still one week left for that...so Help me God!

I should start writing a book about all my offshore adventures, as my darling Sam was mentioning early today to me. I remeber once I found a book on Scott Platform, the best-seller was called "This is not a drill"< I can't remember the writer, but after reading the first pages I left it as I did not want to even hypotetically think about something like that...but then...I had my own experience, not as horrible though as the one that it was written in that book.

TEFL Project

As some people know(or don't), I am taking an online Post-graduate course in Teaching English as a Foreign Language (University of Jaen, Spain), and I just found my Thesis's subject: Music in the English Language Classroom.
Interesting subject, especially taking into account that through Music I learned English!

Leaving on a jet plane...don't know when I'll be back again

so this song really explains a lot what I do every month, when I leave far away from my darling, flying to the north...
Listen the lyrics, so appropriate with all my situation(International Rotator)

Decia que estoy aburrida, pero encontre cosas para mantenerme ocupada.

Aburrida

Estoy cansada de proyectar mis ojos en la pantalla casi durante 10 horas, pero sobre todo estoy aburrida, tengo todo el tiempo del mundo y yo estoy aqui sola, encerrada entre 4 paredes, vigilando estupidos y constantes parametros . Yo queria estar en totalmente otra parte, haciendo algo util con mi tiempo...

Holding hands

Sper sa continuam sa ne tinem de mana pana la batranete si dupa! deja au trecut 3 ani jumatate si numai cand ma gandesc la tine surad, cred ca ti-ai dat seama ce efect ai asupra-mi.

Eminescu

15 Ianuarie 1850 : se naste marele nostru geniu literar Mihai Eminescu.
Am crescut cu minunatele sale poezii si povesti, marele poet, ultimul romantic european care din pacate nu a trait prea mult pentru a ne mai lasa si mai multe capodopere in urma.

Fara indoiala, "Luceafarul" este poemul meu preferat, stiu ca are 99 de strofe, in liceu le stiam pe toate, acum din pacate mai retin doar cateva (pe de rost).

As fi vrut sa il vad in toate librariile europene la un asemenea talent ce poseda este pacat faptul ca datorita limbei romane sa fie izolat, evitat, ignorat.
Nu iti face griji "Eminescule", chiar daca exista Shakespeare si Cervantes, TU ramai cel mai drag poet mie.

Libros que leo y me gustan (ultimamanete)

Me ha gustado leer el comic sobre la sociedad comunista de Corea del Norte, comic escrito por el canadiense Guy Delisle ( www.guydelisle.com/blog/ ).



Luego me lei "La mecanica del corazon" , que me ha entretenido bastante. Me ha gustado el libro contado por el autor frances Mathias Malzieu , y trata sobre una historia para adultos que todavia no han perdido el interes para las cosas magicas!
Tengo que confesar que tanto este libro como la continuacion (La alargada sobra del amor) los recibi como regalo de Navidad por parte de mi querido chico.


El libro que actualmente me ocupa todo mi tiempo libre se llama: "Cometas en el cielo", por Khaled Hosseini, es una novela conmovedora sobre la amistad entre dos chavales, uno rico y otro pobre, el ultimo siendo el criado que haria qualquier cosa por su amo.

Bad Day!(for work, really bad bad day)

...pero por lo menos al final del dia he sonreido gracias a mi querido, me dijo que" me voy de supervisora a la plataforma, vacaciones en el mar". Y que hare todo bien.

Espero que asi sea, espero no hacer muchas tonterias y mantener mis ojos bien abiertos.

...

Azi ma simt obosita, trista, oarecum infometata, evitata si neiubita.

(this is not the best moment to go offshore...)

in love with my E-Book (= Ereader)

I have received this beautiful gift (that I share wuth my dear one) from his aunt for Reyes Magos and I am already impressed.

I have 13 E books ready to be read. And you can also listen music, videos, photos, there are lots of advantages of having one in your life, that the question that raises here is: Why did they invent the E-book so late? we now can stop cutting trees for a chance!

And it comes with a fabulous accessory, that I can use during night time, as it has a small attractive lamp.

Why would you want a Reader?

The Reader is slim and lightweight and especially designed with real book-lovers in mind. The no glare paper-like screen reads just like a book, indoors or out. Flip through the pages with an easy to use touch screen, look up any word in one of the built-in dictionaries and carry thousands of your favourite stories with you anywhere you go.

What makes the Reader different?

* 2 weeks of reading on a single battery charge

* The Reader’s clear paper-like display reads just like a real book - even in direct sunlight- with adjustable font sizes, contrast and brightness.
*
12 built-in dictionaries: Double-tap a word to find its meaning or translation in one of the 2 English or 10 translation dictionaries.

why don't you read "me" more?

I wish you could read and comment my entries more often than you actually do!

I wish you could have an extra minute every other day so you can take a look at what I post...I know you keep an eye on my blog, but I wish you could keep "two".
