2 weeks in 5 paragraphs and 4 words

I know, I know… I know the frequency of my posting doesn't help much to keep this blog of mine a lively, nice place that needs to be checked often… well, actually maybe I should rather use 'turn into' instead of 'keep'... :-P

Anyway, so the reason why I haven't written much (at all in English!) since my first post is, as you can imagine, these days I've been pretty busy — this time with piano and German. Yesterday my Faculty organised what they call the Spring Concert, this yearly musical meeting where anyone somehow related to Maths is invited to take part in. And, because I'm stupid, I did; which means that I spent the last couple of weeks studying like a madman these two bloody pieces that now seem to be stuck in my brain… :'( Well, the concert was quite nice though: Loads of players, a wide variety of instruments, a range of styles. Cool! :-)

As for the German bit, the other day my teacher gave us a gift in the shape of a never-ending essay on some book we had to read ("how could I be mean to my beloved students? Hang on, I have an idea!..."), so recently this lovely thing has also been keeping me quite amused… :-S

Of course, all this extra business came on top of my PhD and regular duties, which I didn't forget about. (I wrote this sentence just in case my supervisor bumps into my blog at some point, please be understanding… ;-) ) Aaaaanyway, so back to the routine now I'm trying to catch up with all the stuff I've been putting off for about two weeks… such as this blog! :-) Indeed I realised that I like writing. (Congratulations, this might be a good starting point when one has just set up a personal blog!... :-D ) Well, what I mean is the more I write, the more I like it! It all started with my occasional random emails to the people of what once upon a time had been a choir… someone suggested me to somehow publish that big pile of nonsense (yeah, that's what my style is all about!), so this virtual place Warwick is so kind to provide seemed to be just the right thing, apart from allowing me to keep in touch with people over there! Of course I feel more comfortable and words come more naturally to me when I write in Catalan, but anyhow I enjoy writing in English as well. Yes, writing is something I definitely like, but in fact just as much as reading, since I devour books when I have time for it. And languages! I love learning new languages, and… and sometimes I wonder why the hell I'm actually studying Maths, „aber das ist eine andere Geschichte“! ;-)

Hmm… it's getting a bit late so I should better make a move to bed. The feeling of having again some free time to do random stuff is wonderful — writing this post and potentially telling six and a half billion people about what my existence consisted of during the last few days has been so refreshing! :-) Tomorrow I'll even try and go to the gym… there I haven't definitely been for ages! Though the difference between me and the photo in my card is now so big that I might have trouble to get in… :-S

And now good night…

Jo m'ho pensava

Doncs sí: Jo em pensava que la primavera era, per dir-ho d'alguna manera, l'estació de l'any per excel·lència. L'estació del retorn de la letàrgia a la vida, la de l'esclat, la de la sang que bull i que empeny a fer-ho tot i de pressa. Però també l'estació del bon temps, la del sol que enamora però que no crema, la dels dies de tranquil·litat passats en un jardí de roses que floreixen — fent més que res però menys que gaire. Sí, sí, jo estava convençut que la primavera era aquest període anual dedicat a la contemplació de l'existència de la natura (i de fet a la contemplació de l'existència mateixa), i dedicat també a deixar perdre la mirada en el cel per retrobar els ocells que tornen de càlides terres llunyanes, i a embriagar-se amb la flaire excessiva que pertot escampen els jacints, i a escoltar els lilàs com "diuen llur joia envejosa a les roses"...

De veritat, amics, que tot això jo havia cregut i creia. Fins avui.

Avui el cel no ha plogut rajos de sol, sinó aigua. I m'he mullat. :'(

Benvinguts!!!

Estimada família choiril: Benvinguts a la meva pàgina blog!!! :-)

Algú em va preguntar, una bona tarda de primavera que els pardals refilaven i les magnòlies flairaven més del que és habitual en elles, que per què no publicava d'alguna forma o altra totes aquestes imbecil·litats que rebeu de tant en tant de la meva persona — producte sens dubte d'algun (altre) cargol que novament se m'ha afluixat… (Algú = el Xu.) Bé, doncs aquí teniu una resposta parcial a tal suggeriment: una pàgina blog!

What the hell does 'una pàgina blog' mean?! Explico què és un blog pels qui no hi enteneu en astro-dinàmica: 'Blog' és un acrònim (o gairebé) d'alguna cosa que ara no recordo, però la qüestió és que és un espai de la xarxa on pots escriure els teus pensaments, prosa, o, en general, el que et doni la gana; fins i tot penjar-hi fotos! Els qui visiten el lloc, poden respondre i fer comentaris als posts originals, en aquest cas meus.

La University of Warwick és tan amable (i té tanta pasta) que proporciona un tal espai cibernètic a tot déu que d'alguna manera s'hi relacioni, des dels profes als alumnes… i suposo que, en algun lloc d'aquesta escala jeràrquica, em trobo jo com a visitant! :-) (En aquest punt del discurs, no és que vulgui posar cap dit a cap ull, però la UB no et dóna ni els segells, per enviar els teus pensaments als amics…) Total, que a mi no sé quant em durarà aquesta conya, però de moment la faig servir, que per això està.

Avui no tinc temps per extendre'm gaire més, o sigui que si de cas ho deixo aquí. Però us prometo que aviat escriuré un text kom kal, okey dokey? :-)

Petonets i cuideu-vos!

Welcome!!!

Hiya and welcome to my blog! Yeah, I know, it's taken me a while to write my first post since I created my blog page… But anyway, now here it is!

I also just created a Choir category where I'll try and post my usual nonsense — they know what I mean... ;-) General will probably contain random stuff, we'll see.

Ok, I should make a move if I want to attend the seminar… (do I?!) Have a nice time wherever you're having your holidays and good luck with the next term!!!
