I am, I want… Some weeks ago, with the presentation of Lunatikka, I told you than in a brief amount of time I would upload a post about me, presenting myself. So as this is my post number 100, here it goes!!
The 31st of December, one year ago today, I wrote anote explaining my progresses, my goals and plans, my achievements, happyness, sadness… And I left clearly that I wanted to find out who I wanted to be. I wasn’t sure about it, and I’m still not sure, but I have some rough idea. Today I have read that note (I confess I have read it a couple more times this year and have laughed much)and for my surprise I have achieved everything I wanted. I’m not going to get into details but one of the things I wanted was to understand who I really was, who I aimed to be and how to achieve this. The time as written, and it was 2014. Who, what, how and when are curious adverbs, and are constantly in my minuends many others’ nearly 100% of my time. And to explain all these applied to myself, I have to start from the beginning.
I was born the 10th of January of 1999 in Tenerife. I’m capricorn just like my dad, my granny and many other family members up in my family tree. Us capricorn are of a tough character and living with each other can be sometimes complicated… That’s why appreciate my mother is libra, it’s a pleasure. I have 10 aunts and uncles, 21 cousins… A big family. And a single brother, just enough. My brother came after me (I was 5) and he’s calm so he doesn’t bother much. He silents when it’s needed and when speech is needed he also stays silent… He is my personal photographer in most outfits of the blog, and I have never mentioned him, but without him my blog wouldn’t work hahaha Oh, and I also have a dog which you already know, Mateo, and my Luisa.
I continue with me. I studied 8 years in a British school, and when i was 10 I changed to a Spanish school. It was approximately change 153 hahaha 😉 My first hobby was basketball (which wasn’t my sport, not like my brother which it is), but I’ve had many other (carefully look at this list, it’s long): tennis, art, piano, drama, dance, paddle, basketball, painting, swimming, volleyball… And many others which I can’t remember with now. I never found one that completed me, until I found rhythmic gymnastics (sadly, late) which I still train. I have travelled to many countries and have been in places which if the files on my computer wouldn’t be named, I couldn’t remember the names of each place. Discovering the world has opened my mind, and my imagination in many cases is due to it.
Heraclites said that “change is the only constant”. So I have a constant and entertained life, I have never been bored (anyone can confirm this) and I have changed every single thing at least once. The only thing I haven’t changed is my name, but when I was little I also wanted to change it, and presented myself more than once with another name hahahaha So when there are no more hobbies, outfits, food or places to change, you must look for something else. And that’s what I did.
The 2nd of May in the garage of mi house I told my mum I would love to have a blog, that I had always wanted it but I never had something to talk about so I would bore the users. She answered: do it. So I did. We started by thinking the name, which was very difficult to find and the appearance. Of what to talk about, what would it have differently, the colours, the surroundings… We kept it as a secret for a month and a half, but I then couldnt take it any more and made public LucesLusia. 6 months later I have more than 300 daily visits (in some time I will read these and I hope it will seem a small amount of visits), more than 5000 followers in total for the sites, a weekly post in Lunatikka, a publication in one of the most important magazines of NY, and looking forward for this to continue. But specially I have myself, in the complete sense of the word, in knowing what I want, how and when. And I have it.
This is what I want, LucesLusia, with all of you following me and feeling happier with every single post and photo and every message, mention and comment from you. I know lately I say it much but these wouldn’t be anything without you, so thank you! I hope to start this year with all of you following me, that everyday are more and not less! Hahahaha the family grows 🙂 I wish you a very very very happy new year, and a merry christmas if I hadn’t yet wished these to you. For 2015 not to bring more than happy moments! Lots of kisses, see you next year!!!! xx
