It’s been a good weekend.
A great action in fighting climate change, a family celebration, movie night and good news about my football club. *highfive*
Tumblr is such a handy journal. :)
We had a successful event yesterday, raising awareness for sustainable transport. Many longboarders, skaters and bikers showed up. Lots of people were asking important questions and were genuinely interested. A local celebrity came out to join the ride around the city and we had some media coverage. I hope the message gets out and more people take to using greener means of transportation.
What touched me the most was the pedicab drivers joining in. They took time out from work (Saturdays are busy for them) just to support our cause. They didn’t have earnings for the time they were with us, and I know they rely on daily work for a living, so it was amazing of them to take part of this celebration.
My boyfriend, Tobi, came along, and it was a nice gesture, even though he may have felt a little left out since everyone he knew there (that’s a total of two - me and my friend Jude) was so busy. He’s such a good sport.
Afterwards, we went out to dinner to celebrate my mom’s birthday with my family at Delicioso’s, restaurant that specializes in wine, spirits and imported cheese. Not many vegetarian options there though. lol But it was a good time for all of us. :) Then we ended up at home. Tobi and I had alone time, then we got caught up in a movie. Again, he was a good sport when I fell asleep at the last bit. An exhausting but fulfilling Saturday.
This morning was pretty good. We both slept in and I had some great news - my football club won! Yay, Madrid! It was a crucial match against our rivals, making the win even sweeter.
Thank God for good weekends before all the crazy studying starts.
