CALM AFTER THE STORM

Today it’s my first Saturday with absolutely no plans at all in months, I swear. It’s strange, but at the same time I really had the need for relaxing and chilling out a bit, or at least, my body is giving me clear signs of exhaustion. My mind is perfect, though and my pocket is broke, as usual.

Saturday has started bittersweet. Agnès and Kiko have departed to Madrid this morning, to start their new life together. Crossed feelings were mixed. It’s true you can stay perfectly in touch with anyone anywhere thanks to technologies and all the stuff, but lately, my sista and I were spending most weekends together and have had so much fun…I’m really gonna miss her in this way, going out, getting drunk, laughing and joking, our gossip times…everything. On the other hand I feel very proud of being the one who introduced them to each other, and in some way, feel very attached to this new couple. They’re both very good friends of mine, have been very supportive with me in rough times and I just wish them the best.

Right before my fav couple left, I started playing Elvis 70’s box, Walk a Mile In My Shoes. I’m not good at farewells and had promised myself not to cry so Agnès could make the trip as much relaxed as possible. It’s been tough to endure, but guess I just dropped a couple of subtle tears so don’t think she’s even noticed them. Despite the drama avoided, I think I’m very good at soundtracks and I’ll always remember this moment, with Elvis singing I’m leaving (I swear!!), giving each other a never ending hug that eventually had to come to an end. Aaaah, man! I’m missing these great times already, no matter I know for sure we’re staying constantly in touch and will all make great effort to see each other as often as we can afford.

It’s been after all this, I’ve decided to stay home, not doing anything in particular but listening the 5 CD’s of the box (I’ll talk about it later), and recalling the set list of songs I played yesterday at the session shared with DJ Nando at Outsiders Rock Bar.

And yes, once again last night was a blast, not only because at the end of the day, thinking about it, DJ’n for pleasure means drinks for free while listening to the music I really love. Ain’t that great? I love it!

Good friends by my side encourage me to play the best tunes I can, trying to please everyone, and I think I did, according to the reaction of my “crew”, which seemed to be delighted.

Once this said, here it is the list of what I played last night, divided into 3 parts, because Nando had his time focusing on more hard rock stuff. For the first time in my life, I didn’t play any Guns N’ Roses song, and don’t know if anyone realized about it. No regrets though.

I’ve created a playlist on Spotify, in case you want to listen to the songs. Hope you like it!

I really want to thank the guys at the Outsiders, Carlos, Caco and Sandra, for allowing me making noise from time to time, and making me feel so welcome and cared for. You guys rock!

Thus, this was the starting of my Widow Anniversay Weekend, not bad, huh? Today I’m wasted, tomorrow I have plans already with some friends. Really, I can’t complain of the life I’m living, even less of the friends I have. Once again, despite much shit we have to swallow sometimes, I do reckon Life is great!

One response to “CALM AFTER THE STORM

  1. It’s been an awesome year by your side. Lately we’ve been a “need” to each other. Right now we’ve become a luxury. But still we’re talking every day. I miss you every day but I know we’ll both make our best to see each other as soon as possible, Madrid, Zaragoza, Barcelona, wherever. You’re in my top 5 of people in this life, you mean so much to me. And you know that all this happiness I’ve got right now is partly thanks to you 🙂 I love you sis! Miss you so much, keep me updated 🙂
