the Maralto is a student housing for those who got a scholarship
the Professors are there too, in another area. It gets awkward at times, but no one has the time to truly give a shit about it.
Marcela (Professor Alvarez) teaches International Law. Ezequiel teaches Political Science, and everyone secretly calls him by his first name bc his last name is so forgettable. Same for Julia, who teaches Women's Studies or something like that. Naìr is the Dean.
Michele, Rafael, and Marco (and Maurìcio) are roomates. They couldn't stand each other at first, now they're BFFs. Rafael and Michele babysit Maurìcio for free, he's the quietest and nicest toddler you'll ever meet.
André is in prison. Michele doesn't talk much about him.
Marco is not talking to his family. They cut him off when he dropped off University bc it wasn't what he wanted. They're outraged because he'll be the first in the family not to get a degree, he thinks they're dramatic because Jesus Christ I already found a nice job and I'm happy like this, can't you be too?
he pays the rent, so he's still allowed to live there.
he lets them see Maurìcio though, because this feud has nothing to do with him.
Rafael is one argument away from suing his mother for the custody of Artur, who would totally have his back on this and already spends most of the time at his apartment, but Rafael knows he wouldn't have the means for it.
Ariel, Natàlia, and Glòria are roomates.
Glòria and Natàlia babysit Augusto, Julia and Ezequiel's son. Glòria lectures him on the value of hard work and pulling all-nighters to study. Natàlia teaches him how to cheat off of exams that are obviously only a scam to have you buy the Professor's books. Augusto is 12 and just wants to watch TV.
Ariel is "not good with kids", meaning that she'd let Augusto stay up until 2 AM to watch Paranormal Activity. She's already had to bail both Glòria and Natàlia off jail on two different occasions, no questions asked.
Fernando and Joana are roommates, and a perfect depiction of the two ends of the pansexual spectrum.
Fernando is friends with literally everyone. He has lunch at the same time as Michele and they always eat together; he goes to the same physio clinic as Marco and they chat about helicopter parents; he saves anyone who is late to class by pretending they were helping him getting across campus.
Joana met Natàlia when she went to take a coffee at the place Joana works at, and she got an instant crush but has no social skills. She almost has a heart attack when Fernando casually mentions being in Natàlia's same studying group after she'd been rehearsing for two months a simple 'hi'.
Elisa works at the non-profit physio clinic Fernando and Marco go to. Fernando introduced her to Rafael, who was there to give a lift to Marco later.
Xavier and Pedro are roommates. They don't get along that much, but it's mostly pretty chill, and don't argue a lot.
Xavier is the first in his family to go to University. Michele tutored him when he was in high school, and she always has a soft spot for him. Marco and Rafael tried to tease her for it, but they quickly gave up because she has excellent aim and her jogging shoes are heavy.
yes, she jogs as a hobby, what about that.
# covid hugs
here's my take
Michele: hey, I'm back.
Xavier: great, the Concha burned down and Marcela escaped with the help of Glòria.
Michele: I was away for one night???

Nieves Álvarez for Yves Saint Laurent HC SS 1996
Sometimes I think about the conceptualisation of the Process and have to sit down for a moment. I mean, it starts as a really unfair system (why only 3% of the population?!) so of course you want it to be taken down, only to see how deeply rotten it all is. It’s all based on meritocracy, right? WRONG! Rafael cheats in the second task, but Ezequiel lets him go, because it’s the result that matters, not how you got there (this reminds me of The Great Gatsby and how he grew rich).
In Season 2, we see how the Process truly affects people’s lives, from children’s games to how much they see it as a redemption (much like Joana in season 1, for more pressing reasons tho). But we also see that people still try to bend its rules (Marcela when she considered to give Marco a second chance, Rafael’s brother who stole his sibling’s ID chip too). No matter what the rules are, people will try to bypass them, often succeeding.
And don’t get me started on the Cause and how ambiguous their motives are. I mean, they want to overthrow the system because it’s unfair, but they have no qualms in killing innocent people, and that is shown way back in episode 1.
I really hope this will continue in season 3.
Houellebecq y los finales de año, la elegancia de Jo Malone, una fotografía de Sara Tasker, el homenaje de Nacho Cano en la puerta del sol y el podcast de Omar se muere.
Absolutamente atemporal de Houellebecq en su maravilloso libro Plataforma, sobre los finales de año, y todas esas cosas que los acompañan.
Excepcional con el que Nacho Cano cerró el 2020 acordándose de todos aquellos que ya no están. Madrid siempre vuelve.
Sacó Jo Malone para estas navidades un calendario de adviento compuesto de colonias y accesorios; me encanta Jo Malone, hay pocas marcas que transmitan tan bien ciertos valores.
Como decía Garci: sensibilidad y buen gusto, ¡siempre!
De Sara Tasker que representa a la perfección lo que es la navidad.
Con el que tengo sentimientos encontrados, pero que en general no me ha gustado nada.
Se ha hecho muy viral en las últimas semanas el podcast “Omar se muere”, donde Omar Álvarez - diagnosticado de un cáncer terminal - habla sobre la vida y la muerte con el cómico Antonio Castelo a través del humor. Aunque creo que la idea y el mensaje que intenta transmitir es buenísimo, no me convence nada el tono y las formas.
PD: Probablemente la principal idea que saco de 2020 es ser consciente de que la vida es finita, y que la manera en que entiendes y aplicas esto, define todo lo demás.
¡Escuchen el podcast!
