Starting Again.

So finally I can get online after almost half a month. It's tough not to be able to get online as frequent as I would like to.
Any way, I am back to my third contract period for Carnival Cruise Lines, and this time I was assigned, after a lot of confusion and worthless and unneccesary flights across USA to Celebration ship, which is among the oldest ships of the fleet. Rumors says that it is about to be sold to a sister company and will be sailing in europe, which is a very good news, since that means, we all will get transferred to other ships of Carnival. I mean, this ship is really old, is so much old that we dont have restroom facilities inside our cabins, but outside, so we share toilets and showers. It's horrible. I am getting used to it though, but it is horrible. On the other hand, I am thankful, because the port of calls of this ship are really bad, they are super expensive, prices for food, internet services, phone services and tourims in general are really expensives even for americans. So i rather stay in the ship and I get to save more money than usual. And finally but no less I found out that I got a nice raise of salary and am very happy for it.
I've began my gym sessions again, hopefully this time I wont give up so fast like last time I tried and see if I can get rid of this stubborn fat belly I've gotten. During the first week I concluded that if there is one thing that I suffer and I need to fight fiercely is inconsistency. I frequently find myself starting something and not ending it or keeping it alive. That is something I think is part of my personality, but I am praying a lot to God for his help to overcome this flaw. Of course, that takes a lot of discipline of my side and I keep on reminding me not to give up in whatever I am currently working on, either spiritual aspect, physical, emotional or anyone. With God help I will overcome this and I will be a better man soon. Consistency is my fight. Thank you all of you who are supporting me in your prayers.

Back To Work

Yay!!! Back to work, it was about time. I am so blessed, I have to say. I had a wonderful vacation time here. I got to go out with my family and my friends so much that I actually almost broke, but it was very much nice. I am so happy and blessed indeed. My 8 weeks vacation are over and I feel strong and full of energy to go back to where I feel God is using me. I still dont know what ship or when, but I will get to know that in a couple of hours if God wills. I am about to take my flight to L.A. and there I will find out.

Children Talk About Love

lovely scene.

A group of professionals interviewed a group of 4 to 8 years old children about what love meant for them. These were some of the answers that these children gave. And we will be able to see that they think more deeper than we thought they could be.

  • When my grandmother suffered of arthritis, she couldnt bent down to do the nails of her feet, so that my grandfather painted them all, even though his hands had also arthritis. Rebeca 8- year old.
  • When somedody loves you, the way they say your name is different. You can be sure that your name is secure in their mouth. Billy 4-years old.
  • Love is when a girl puts on perfume and a boy uses colony to shave and then they smell each other. Karl 5-years old.
  • Love is when you go somewhere to eat and you end up giving away your fries to your friend. Chrissy 6-years old.
  • Love is when mom makes coffee for dad and she tries a little bit of it before handling it to dad to make sure it is good. Danny 7-years old.
  • Love is when they are on a kissing mood for a while, and then after getting tired of it, they still remain together to talk. Mom and Dad loves to do that. Emily 8-years old.
  • If you´d like to learn to love, you should start over with a friend you hate. Nikka 6-years old.
Isn´t it awesome...?
