Maria’s Musical Fridays!

viernes musicales copia

I can’t even remember when was the last MMF! (I know I could look for it at the blog’s archive, but I don’t really feel like) So let’s stop all the chit chat and let’s get to it!

This past week I’ve been on McFLY mode. I like this group almost from the beginning (actually after Busted splitted) and they have been one of my favourite bands since then. I’ve been listening all their albums, watching documentaries after luch (I normally the ones I see are the Mayday series or Nazis) (I love World War II stories) (I love story in general), so in resume, I’ve been fangirl mode and that’s why this week we are going to dedicate this MMF to the british band!
(PS: Have you seen how well fits adulthood some people?)

That girl

OK! So this was the song that got me into Mcfly, I still love it after all this years. I remember how I totally LOVED Danny Jones (the brunette singer) (I love his hair, his guitar solo, his looks, I thought he was really sexy), I also remember how I thought that Tom (the blond singer) looked like The Albino from Princess Bride (Sorry Tom, now I think you look like the most adorable dad in the world and that adulthood has made really good too).
I also remember I learned to play this song with the guitar and that I performed it in front of my family one New Years Eve… o what times… ENJOY THE SONG BECAUSE IT’S STILL AWESOME.

All about you

One of my top 3 favourite song of the world. I think it needs no more presentation.

And last! It’s been too difficult, because I like almost all their songs Smile (the song I used for my first short film), Party Girl, Walk in the Sun, Love is easy…. too many!
I finally chose this lovely acoustic version where you can see the absolutly stunning guitar domain of Danny and Tom, plus the song has a je ne sais quoi, and their suits??? no comment, just enjoy.

Well and that’s all for the week!
Until next post! (Or not)

If Marilyn knew!

So, you know that sensation when you have been studying for very very long, you make the exam, write down all you know and after fell super relieved and like you don’t want to do anything else? well that’s a bit what happened to me last Monday (remeber I was waiting for a Freepik call?) and that’s why I kicked in the butt my promise of writing on Monday and went out to buy a new pair of red shoes.

Let’s go step by step:
-What was the call about?:
You are not going to believe (because it took me awhile to believe it myself) BUT! chan chan chan I FINALLY GOT A REAL JOB! you know? In a super cool office (In the first picture, the “where things happen” that’s going to be my office) (yes the one with the hammocks) (the are putting in a whole new computer, desk and recording equipment at this moment) , whith a salary, a timetable, WORK MATES… man! when I got off the phone with the lady I totally burst in to tears, I could not believe it, so much effort, this whole year suffering and fighting and I made! By myself! I had assumed that I wouldn’t get a job without someones help, but I DID, and that makes me super proud and also makes me happy thinking that this can give you hope if you don`t have contacts (don’t get me wrong, most people I know who got in with the help of a contact deserved it, and I’ll help who needs it if I can, but come on! achieving those things by yourself?! That’s too awesome)

-Why shoes?
Why not? First of all I love shoes, second I needed a new pair for my new JOB (wow this is never going to get old) and third once in a while a gal needs a treat (and come on people! I totally earne it)

And what now? Well I start in a week (Monday 20th) I’m going to give the best that I can and a bit more, of course I’ll keep trying to get into cinema business (that’s what I studied for) and I’ll keep working as a hostess once in a while (you know “me va la marcha”) but only on the ones that are compatible with my real job and the ones I like (like last week) (goodbye black suits and ponytails).
I would like to make a vkspdl drksrwr and maybe a vjdpl drksrwr (I prefer to keep it secret in case I don’t feel like doing it) about my working experience.

And meanwhile I keep flirting with the video world, playing around and I’m starting to be very in to it so I recorded the process of my latest background for you to see and maybe get inspired! Enjoy!

Byt he way! what I’m going to do in Freepik is work hand by hand with the Art Director on all the tutorial stuff, recruting, editing, dubbing all the videos (as my dad says I’m going to be known as “The Freepik voice”), working on the blog… in the future I’ll probably do graphic resources, but by the moment just tutorial (which if I have to be sincere I prefer by know). And so that is all for today, I’ll keep updating about the “Freepik world” and you know waht comes next!
Until next post! (or not)

I’m alive

                                             mano copia

So hello people! With this horrible interpretation of a Saul Bass poster I shout to you that I’M ALIVE!

So I know it’s been A LOT since the last time I wrote around here, don’t even remember! wait a sec, and let me check the date… HOLY GUACAMOLE April 17th! almost two months! Man what a bad host I am! But people! I’ve been so occupied lately! I’ll try to keep up this thing more often so I don’t have to write gigantic post!

(A little aside comment before going into the real subject. I’ve been over reading the blog and man! This thing is quite interesting! No wonder so of you desperately call for more!)

So let’s pick up where we left it, which is at the EAACI congress. Ok so after that I want to spend a week to the Canary Islands with my good old friend Naomi. We went for an Animation Festival “Animayo” which was a really revealing and embracing experience, man! all the speakers where soooo passionate, interesting and so generous with their experiences and livings, I came bakt to Malaga with the batteries fully charged and so motivated with hundreds of ideas. It’s been a really mind changing/opening. I hope that whatever you are into (animation, medicine…) you get the chance to come across with this type of people. That week I also took care (or so I hope) of some other things I have going around which I’m not going to talk here, who has to know it, knows it (y lo sabes) (Hulia and co.).

Ok, after that I got a call from one of the hostess agencies I’m in for a 6 day promotion (3 days/2 weeks) which was terribly boring, long and pointless, but well good money came in with it (and a very cool mug) (bacause I was promoting cups from a bank) (as you know I always get the most weird jobs), actually there isn’t much to tell about this (and a bit also because it goes in conflict to my purpose “don’t speak bad of people” and well, no comments) (If you ask me in person I’ll totally tell you).

And so we get in this week! The week I finally get a hostess job that is actually interesting and non-boring!!! I was called (just for an afternoon) to be a “Beer tasting assistant”, and no, I wasn´t called to taste beers, I just served the different beers, open bottles, and throw away glasses… basically like being a waitress, yaehhhhhh all this crying about bartendering and stuff payed of! I learned a couple of things about beer, I had a nice looking partner (a bit dumb, but good looking). When we finished and cleaned everything we got to take some beer home and everything really entertaining.

So as you see things are coming in to place finally! BUT! There is more! yes people THE NEWS *drum roll* I FINALLY REALLY GOT A JOB RELATED WITH ART. I actually don’t believe it yet, and it’s been a month already.

Of course it’s not a normal job (it’s in a graphic design studio) and what I do is video tutorials for their blog. This week came out the first one and it seems it works quite well.
I suppose you expect something very long about it but they told me the other day that the head of Mrketing is going to call me with good news (they told me this on Friday, and have no clue what it could be about…son imagine my nerves…) well I’m going tho save all the artistic job thing for a new post tomorrow (In the hope of having something new and exciting to tell). So you will have to wait until tomorrow, sorry! and my grandparents have just arived and I have to tell them all about the job and stuff son I sadly have to abandon you for today! But I’ll be good and leave you the link yo my first video 😉 (you know, give it a thumbs up)

Until next post! (or not)
