our shoes...  me and my friends


All shoes shown here belong to me and my friends.  We were riding a jeep on our way to a hospital.  As you can see, everyone has comfy shoes (yes, those flip flops make you feel right at home… they also get you banned from entering most buildings, as my friend Gelo learned the hard way), since heels won’t work at all in our profession.  Today we were jobhunting, which is a task that should never be done alone, at least, if you’re a nursing graduate living in a country overflowing with jobless nurses and almost all the hospitals have a freeze on hiring even if they’re way understaffed.

By the way, I’m wearing a different pair of jelly shoes.  Soft and comfy and perfect for my feet.  I wear them everywhere.

We had plans and plans and plans and plans- all the talk nowadays is always about un-bumming ourselves.  This scene is familiar.  Nothing happened at the end of the day.

Endless worries.  I hate thinking about life and futures.

Well, here is my inevitable “first post” post.  Just a little intro to this blog- it’s a little project of mine.  This is where i document the moments when (and if) I catch myself gazing at my shoes, and I mean that literally- the time, place, which shoes I was wearing, other shoes that may have been present, and my thoughts during those moments.  It’s not much, but it’s also a tribute in my own small way to the bands Mew and My Bloody Valentine.  (You can find all this written in the “About” page but I felt like putting it here too, because I can.)

I came up with this idea while I was at mass staring at my shoes instead of listening to the sermon.  I never listen to the priest, but really, I’m a good person.  Just not very attentive (sorry Father).  Here is a photo of the shoes I was wearing that time, taken yesterday.  They are gold and they are jelly shoes, and they squeak when they get wet in the rain.

Sorry about the really bad quality.  Next time will be better.  Going to sleep now
