And that was it. The Party in charge is still PS (socialist) but the mayor is now, I believe for the first time in Lagos, a woman - Maria Joaquina Matos. I can't say I voted for her, she was part of the previous government for a while and truth being said they did some good things but the measures they wanted to apply and applied to the people and to the city weren't the best ones. I believe that a gorgeous city like Lagos should more than just know as a touristic place, they should work to turn it into an appealing city during all over the year and to have jobs for the youth who ends university and has to search somewhere else for it.
But now this was the result and we can only hope that things will change in a positive way and the Mayor can show that she can be as great in her duty as she was as a teacher back in my school days. One thing gets my vote, her interest for the cultural life in the city.

"When we are not alone and we care for people, all we want is to them to be their best, to be happy. It's not always in our hands. Almost never. We can try to help them, we can try to show them the best way, we can try to give them all the attention and strength. But in the end it will be their choice to go into that way. Sometimes, we really want to be there for them but for some reason we have our own problems and we can't be the shoulders to cry on. And it's truly tough to want to and to not be able to, because our own problems are eating all our energy and we don't have a spare one to give to anybody. Then we get angry with ourselves, trying to get that lost energy from some place, and when we can't, we feel like shit... 'cause it's more painful to see someone we care suffer and not being able to do anything or even to not knowing how to help them than to be suffering. And for that, for my weakness and lack of energy to help you in this moment, I say I'm sorry A., I'm really sorry, but I'll try my best to see your big smile again."

... there's exactly 3 months to be 30! And the time has gone so fast that I almost see tomorrow as the big day. And why? Because it feels that 3 months aren't enough to something change in my Life. A few months ago I would say the other way around, but now a lot has been left over the way. One could say that, if so much could happen in only a few months, the same can happen now, but for some reason I don't believe that will be the case.
Keep going. I didn't use to see the big 30 as something to celebrate, but I've changed my mind and now I'm thinking I should do something memorable. Ok, there's things I'm not happy for but to balance there's a lot to be grateful for in this moment. Small or big, I'm not sure yet, but it will be, for sure, with the people I love the most.
As for gifts... I could say a lot of material things... as everyone knows I really love books, clothes, shoes and all, but if I find a good job by then that would make my day and year!
And now back to series - Glee and 2 Broke girls are already back!

So, this was my summary this weekend. I had some meetings with friends. I had some disencounters also. Then I thought I had found a group to do jogging with but, again, I did find it, but way too far from my city. So back to the search. Yes I do have a friend to go with, but I'm starting to feel that more people means more motivation and better results. Let's go!
P.S. From now on it is possible that my posts are mostly in English 'cause... well, it's good to practice for the future.

It has never been so true telling that the third is the one. It's the end my "friend"! And this time it's for sure the end of the row. Let's turn our backs to the past and go to the future through different paths. That's our reality now and there's no turning back!
