“A football player”. That was my answer as a child when people asked me what I wanted to be when an adult. I’m not a football player. I failed to achieve the biggest dream of my life.
Uno de los partidos que más recuerdo en mi vida lo jugué a las 5 de la mañana frente al mar, con arcos improvisados con tarros y una cancha semicircular. Y el mejor gol del partido fue desde atrás del arco.
Mirás para atrás y hay tristeza y desilusión. Mirás para adelante y está Rusia. El Mundial nos espera, pero no tanto como lo esperamos a él. Relato de una noche hermosa desde su doloroso posible final. Y, claro está, desde su final real.
Al tipo lo trajeron de no sé dónde. Bah, “el tipo”, el coso ese raro, extraterrestre podría ser, marciano no sé, porque no sé si es de Marte, pero de algún otro lado es, el loco no sabe nada. De los humanos no tiene conocimiento, menos de lo que hacen. No sabe qué son los […]
There’s no such thing as a thermometer for happiness. There’s not an objective way to measure it. And even further, we won’t always agree on what happiness is.

They used to have fun. A lot. I remember witnessing those two men dressed like women and dancing in front of more than a hundred people in some random party. I remember them smiling, laughing, making jokes. I remember them enjoying life. That’s only a memory. That doesn’t happen anymore. And that’s really sad. I […]

You’ve made already read this story: a journalist who wants no bosses but themselves, can’t find a 9-to-5 job and gives it a go to the freelancing world.
