22/08 h21:15 Porquerolles

These last few days have been very very intense. Let’s start from the end.
I arrived in France, finally. Finally? don’t know if it’s the correct word.. I wasn’t eager to get back here. Don’t get me wrong. Life on this boat is getting harder and harder and I’m a little sick of certain attititudes, and I realize that I’m also less and less tollerant, so that means that at some point I will most probably react the very wrong way.. but I’ll try to behave. I wasn’t willing to leave the Balearic islands. I must say, I really love France, and the French culture, tradition, people, I even have some history here. But nothing to do with Spain. Spain is in my heart. And event though the little islands are far from being the country I know, still, they are somewhat Spanish, and I enjoy that.
The way here was not as tough as expected, and not as long. It was much easier than I expected. Much easier than the way down. We left yesterday at 1pm to cross from Mallorca to Les Porquerolles. The day passed without any particular event. I was quite annoyed by our boss. Always so needy, even during the transfert. He should know that he cannot expect the exact same treatment as when we are in our routine, but no, he doesn’t know better. Last instead was thrilling. Until half past midnight I was quite ok, then I got sleepy and went to bed till 3am. When I got up, only Riccardo was awake. And I was able to fully appreciate the darkness of the night and the shimmering of the thousands of stars in the piece of sky above our heads. There was no moon, untill 5am, when a little orange slice of it appeared on the horizon. But before that, it was peech black. Amazingly beautiful. At some point, Riccardo turned off the back lights of the boat to check out a reflection, and we could see the plancton in the wake of the boat glowing in the dark, just like in the documentaries. Wow. I was stunned by the beauty of all of it. I stayed out till 4:45 then went back to bed hoping in a quick nap till dawn, but when Riccardo came to call me out, I had probably just fallen asleep. I was back on deck at 6am and even though the black sky was turning full of shades of pink and orange, the sun started coming out only 8 min before 7. It was again spectacular. Took many pics. I was with Carlo and Nicola, and we shared some good moments. Soon after that, even Francesco came out, and for once, I didn’t feel so out of place. Following, we had different encounters with dolphins! The first couple were brief but the third was intense! They played with us for a while and I was able to film them. Then again, in a fewer number, in the afternoon. Towards the end of our trip, something else, new, we opened the Spinnaker. It was fun! But hard. We had problems taking it down. Fortunately we were in big numbers and managed working all together. Porquerolles. The weather is terrible. Awfully cold, cloudy-rainy. Give me back the sun, heat, gracious sea of Mallorca.
Before ending thi spost, I would like to talk about my birthday, because as I have already said, my expectations were so low, that there was nothing that could really make me feel bad, or so I thought, and in any case, it wasn’t such a bad birthday after all. The night before I had an “episode” with Riccardo, that left me deeply unsatisfied and brought to the same discussion on the same topic. “Don’t start what you cannot finish” that was my saying, while his sounded something like “chi si accontenta gode”.. very different from my way of thinking. And apart from that, I really dont’ get his behaviour, but anyway.. In the morning (birthday) I was pissed and was ignornign him as much as possible, while behaving normally with the others. He didn’t flinch. He was carefull enough not to make it worse, trying to be as gentle as he can be.. and making me laugh, and so he made it all pass. I cannot keep a grudge on him anymore. The guests left us free in a beautiful bay for a couple of hours, and Francesco gave us deliberate permission to take advantage of the situation to relax and bathe. We were deeply surprised, but I didn’t waste a minute. I went to change in my bathing suit and 5 min later I was swimming in the intense blue water. It was wonderful. It was refreshening. It was beaufitul. I received messages the entire day, from all the people I care of plus some people I didn’t expect, and I wasn’t prepared for a message from Dani. It didn’t even cross my mind he could write to me. I was shocked and then started an emotionally desperate cry. I took control and then replied with a brief and detached message. Couldn’t believe it. But the rest of the day went smoothly. We moved from from one edge to the other of Mallorca and enjoyed the trip. In the evening we stopped in another bay and had dinner. When it was dessert time, Riccardo made me bring up the whole cake and Francesco said:”you thought that you had passed unoticed, but we knew”, and they knew it was my birthday. We had a toast with champagne, I blew off the candle (with a little help from Carlo), they took pics, and I even received 2 presents! I was going to cry!! Totally totally unexpected, and I was feeling ever grateful, especially towards Riccardo who made it happen. We all exchanged kisses. At the end of the dinner, when he came out of the shower i gave him a hug, thanked him and kissed him on the cheek. He deserved it. I had thought he didn’t even remeber it was my birthday if not for reading it in FB. We went to bed and after an initial refusal from me, I thought he deserved a little love for making me feel good. So he joined me. And it was amazing. We had a great time. We caressed each other, I made him come, we chatted, we laughed, a lot, and he told me that he didn0t know of the rpesents either, so he was surprised too. And also, that he hadn0t told directly Francesco, but only Carlo some time ago. Now I didn’t ask if they had talked about it again and such cause what really mattered is that everyone had been really nice and sweet. I fell asleep with an arm across him and that’s how my birthday ended: well.

Almost 28 and counting

Hello diary,

it feels weird writing a diary-post. it’s been so long since I last did. So many things have changed. So much I have changed. My posts are random. Started writing years ago and then left it and picked it up again in various moments. And today I feel again the need to express myself in the written language and make it “public”. I do realize that the person who is writing this post is not really me. Or well, to be more precise, it is just me at this very precise moment in my life, ever changing, ever floating, ever evolving. I am not who I used to be, and I’m not the person who often wrote the past posts. I write when I feel the urge to write, and spill out what is raveled in my mind, to unravel it, observe it, analyze it, and then just feel my head a little lighter. I’m cruising along the island of Ibiza, with my mate. Work has been hard, but I had my good moments, especially because of him and the landscape. But my thoughts are now centered on a special date, the 19th. The day after tomorrow I’ll be 28 years old. Ever closer to the great number 30. My birthday has always come with mixed feelings. I do feel like it is a special day, my so very special day, and have celebrated it in all kinds of ways. Very often far from home, working during the summer, and throwing myself my very own birthday party with a little something to make it peculiar, remarkable, in September with my friends. This year though feels different. Maybe I feel the anxiousness of getting older, but not in the mere sense of aging, but turning into a so-called adult thus realizing I am so far from achieving that status. Most of my friends have gotten “somewhere”. They chose a career and pursued it. I managed to get back to uni but still a bit far from the very end. While everyone else is establishing what they’re gonna be for their next 30 years, I am still very undecided on what I want to do. All I know is I want to  travel while working for a year at least, if my health conditions will allow it, and then? Who knows. But let me get back to my greatest concern at the moment, that is. In two days I will be 28, 28, 28, 28!!! And I will be on this boat. No idea how will I celebrate it. Maybe I’ll be all festive only in my head, or maybe I will have my special moment even this year. I have to decide what cake I want to bake myself. Thinking about the white chocolate with some red berries cheesecake again.. I could make it a birthday classic. I could start a new birthday tradition: where ever I am, I’ll treat myself with a berry cheesecake, and if I’m the one baking it, it’s going to be perfect to the eyes and tongue. What would I like as a birthday present? There are so many things one could wish for, and I think of my cousin, who I know would give me everything I would wish for if I were with him on that day. He would grant me all that we could possibly do just to make me feel special, make me feel happy. He’s that kind of person. He’s in a bad moment though, and we’re just barely reaching out to each other to not fall far off, but just the thought makes me feel a little lighter, and teary, because all I would like this year would be to be waken up with a kiss from someone special saying “happy birthday Kim”. And that would make my day. I would be glad, and continue with my daily chores as always, but feeling happy. But there is no special person. I barely have a person that mildly catches my interest. Definitely no one special around. So what will I get on my birthday instead? I always make the same wish since 2012, and not only on my birthday, but whenever I have a chance to wish for something, the answer is always the same, and the day after tomorrow when I’ll blow the candle I will wish for the same thing, again.
