That was my reaction when my friend send me an article that was in Argentinean’s most important newspaper yesterday! My name appeared here!!! 😯 How that happened????? Well… that article was written by my co-author and he mentioned our latest work. But the surprise didn’t stop there. I entered my name in google, searched for news and I found more news with my name in it! Korea Times, Brazilian website , chinese blog and US website!!! 😯 It was just OVERWHELMING!!!
I couldn’t hide my excitement and began to call my friends and family! I was shocked, shocked by happiness!!! 😆 And what made me the happiest is the way I knew about it. It was sent by the parents of my best friend (who’s in the program too) from ARgentina, they even sent me an email to congrats me!!! That was soooo sweet and kind! I can’t express how much that act made me happy, even more than the news thing itself. You know, jealousy is in human nature, I’m skeptical and pessimist about people sometimes, so I wouldn’t expect them to be truly happy for me, but they did and I can feel their sincerity. 😀 I’m so thankful to achieve this little success, and even more when I have friends who are truly happy for my success. That’s so valuable!
But at night, after the hype I entered in doubt. Maybe I shouldn’t spread the words to everyone I know, because not everyone will be happy for me, they might think I’m showing off myself, they might be jealous or simply they might not feel so happy about it. Let’s face the truth, not everyone is generous, kind and be really happy for others’ success. I probably should only share my happiness/success with my closest family and friends.
Q: What do you think? Should I tell to everyone? or should I reserve it to closest friends and families?
Back to normal posting! food and groceries! 😉
After days of eating out, I craved simple meals like this oatmeal cooked with soy milk, flaxmeal, topped with apricot preserve and more flaxmeal.
Stir-fry green tea noodle with greens, black fungus, tofu and shitake

Maybe I overdid a little bit, that is a lot of food! But I need more energy these days, I’m defending my thesis proposal in 10 days! 😀
Used homemade pizza crust that I had in the freezer, topped with broccoli, roasted peppers and cheese
