Happiness is the willingness to settle


Yesterday I watched this TED Talk by Dan Gilbert on "The Surprising Science Of Happiness" where basically he explains that happiness is synthesized and not natural as many may think (watch it, it's really great). Meaning, we will always achieve happiness with any situation we settle for.

Lecciones aprendidas por una venezolana en Ciudad de México


Nota: este post fue publicado originalmente en Junio de 2011 en mi posterous y fue movido en Octubre de 2012 a este blog.
  1. El verbo chingar puede significar cualquier cosa, dependiendo de su contexto.
  2. Pendejo es el equivalente a mentar la madre. Ciudado con su uso.
  3. Los mexicanos nunca dicen que no -excepto cuando necesitas un taxi en la lluvia.

Thoughts on moving away to another country


It's been a while since I last posted, let alone actually write, but this subject has been on my mind for some time now. A little more than a year ago I decided to leave Venezuela in the pursuit of a better life: independence, professional growth, security and overall happiness(?)

Now, the next step was finding a job that I really enjoyed doing, because if I was going to leave everything behind, I might as well hang on to something I loved, otherwise it's just plain misery. Turns out I guessed right, but more on that later.
