esterday I was in front of the computer working... it was late, and suddenly I felt like a pain in my belly, more like anguish, and I worried "what's going on?". Suddenly I felt the vertigo, my vision was blurred, and the next thing I remember is that I was laying on my side over the chair and my feet were kicking involuntarily. I lost consciousness, I don't know how long, but I fainted bad, and felt terribly cold after I woke up. My friend hurried my to the hospital, I went to emergency, my blood pressure was fine, and they took some blood samples to make some tests. I was still trembling, my face was icy and i was worried, very worried. a few minutes later the blood tests were ready. Nothing wrong there. Diagnostic: stress. The doctor said that it is very probable that its stress, but that I should check with a neurologist anyway. But I know... it is stress, fear, worries, tension.

Today I was surfing and i found this prayer, and i feel a bit better each time i read it or remember it.
The "Serenity Prayer" of theologian Rheinhold Niebuhr, adopted by Alcoholics Anonymous:

God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;

and the wisdom to know the difference-

living one day at a time;

enjoying one moment at a time;

accepting hardships as the pathway to peace.

Dreaming of the future

Dreaming of the future, the near future, my near future... I've been dreaming lately about waking up in Australia and feeling disoriented; to go to an unknown country, to breath new air, to know new people, to adapt to a new environment. Its a big deal, and my mind is racing all the time about my future travel to the land of kangaroos, koalas and (R.I.P.).

My decision is made; I will hopefully begin my postgraduate program in the University of Queensland early next year. It is still some months away, but my mindis already there.

Changes are coming fast to my life. The come with fear and excitement, with hope and anxiety.

I'm already missing my family and my friends here in Perú, I was supposed to go to Australia with some of them, but in the end I will go alone; And with that fear and anxiety grow bigger.
