Hoping Spanish = English!
Heeellooo! This is my first post in English. I don’t even believe it myself! Julie and Julia brought a lot to my life. This movie just made me realize that since I live in Toronto, if I want to reach more people, make a bigger impact and feel fulfilled I have to start writing in English. I can’t say it will be easy. I write what I feel and even when I’ve been living in Canada for more than 6 years, I still feel in Spanish ;) I’ve been writing as a profession for so long thus I already developed a certain style that I will have to find in this language.
The good news is that I won’t stop doing it in Spanish. I think that I can achieve a good mix with both languages plus after all the great comments I got with my last post in Spanish (Julie, Julia & Me) I don’t think I could. You gave me tons of feedback that took my energy levels to the top!
I’m glad that I will now be able to share my point of view with my Canadian friends and that they will have the chance to know me better.
Too many thoughts for a romantic comedy, huh? Well, I hope I can find my wordplay in this language. English is definitely more direct and concise while Spanish is more romantic, rich and elaborated. I think one of the few phrases that works the other way around is “I love you” which in Spanish is just as simple as “Te amo”.
Thanks for reading and giving me the opportunity to do what I love the most. ¡Los amo!
