My college years (part I)

Did you know my college years were the worst of my life? Didn’t you? Ooh, yes they were. It was literally a nightmare. I had nightmares or couldn’t sleep because of the stress and anxiety… caused by our professors AND “friends”. But I’ll tell you all that another day…

Anyway, I was looking some pictures, and found this one:

They used to be my best friends. We were celebrating the birthday of the girl in the center of the photo, the one who is holding those colourful balls. Now you know what I looked like when I was in 2nd year of my degree. 19-20 years old.

And then I found this one. I think he was one of our loyal friends:

Mr. Cat was always wandering and attending to class. A good student.

But Mr. Cat didn’t attend to our parties. He wasn’t 21 yet, you know. So he couldn’t drink alcoholic drinks. But I was 20 years old (which is ALMOST 21…) so I went to this birthday party, with some American guys…

I'm the one in the center of the picture, next to Jimmy.

I must admit I didn’t go to many parties. It may sound weird, but I don’t feel comfortable when people drink and drink, there are too many people, and too much noise. I don’t like it. I prefer going to the park or to the cinema, going out with Jimmy… In fact, I’m gonna admit something else: I don’t drink alcoholic drinks. I don’t like them. I’ve never been drunk! That is. I said it! That’s one reason I didn’t use to go to many parties… So I enjoyed other events.

Such as “group therapy”. Yes, “group therapy”. That’s one thing we used to do while we were studying Translation. You know,  to relax and forget everything about college…

Group Therapy.- Can you find me? Where am I?

How were your college years? Was university a good experience for you? Tell me!! I’ll tell you more about my years at college… The real nightmare… But that will be another day!

Introduction

Hi!

I’ve decided to create a blog to share my daily experiences and ups and downs with anyone who wants to read it. I’m going to use a nick here to refer to my boyfriend and me, so as to keep our privacy… So I’m going to be Chloe and my sweetheart, Jimmy. Besides, I’ve been reading all around and I’ve seen couples sticking their names together, creating supercutes combos! And, to be Chloehonest, my boyfriend’s name and mine as one isn’t cute at all!! But changing my name to Chloe and my boyfriend’s to Jimmy, the result is Chimmy! and I love it! 😀 However, apart from that, all the information told here will be real and true.

Sooo… I think I better tell you something about me. I’m Chloe and I live in a beautiful town, in Spain. I’m 22 and I’ve just finished my degree in Translation. My experience at the university wasn’t exciting at all. In fact, it was a nightmare… But I’ll tell you more about this chapter of my life another day… I’ve always been a good student and I loved learning new things… But what I always really loved was foreign languages. English, in particular. And French too. And German… And Japanese! I went to a strict and good school and high school. I started learning French at the age of 4, and English when I was 12. I finished high school and went to college. I didn’t have to move to another town, because I could study what I wanted here, and I thought it was a good university (I said “I thought”…).

I met my boyfriend when I had just started my first year at college. And now we’re thinking of marriage!! After 4 year together… Time flies!! My boyfriend is from Argentina, but moved to Spain with his parents when he finished high school. They wanted to start a new life, away from the poverty and criminality, and the endless economic crisis existing in Argentina. He finished his degree here in 2007. He is now an industrial engineer, and works at a multinational firm. He is already in his second year there!! I’m so proud of him…! He has always been a hard-working, honest and sweet person. He deserves the best of life (yeah, what else can I say? I’m so deeply in love with him…) And now here we are. Ready to open a new chapter of our life.

Hope you enjoy our adventure.
