Last week, we didn’t have a class because of our beautiful and not well followed constitution so we didn’t discuss any topic in class BUT I did went to work, school, meetings, parties, towns so I will talk about that, how the city I’m living is not that smart as a “Mexican silicon valley” should be.
The first thing is the lack of bridges or bridges in places that don’t have sense. I am talking about the bridges for pedestrians. I work in an office located in a very crowded avenue so it’s almost impossible to cross from one side to another unless you walk 500mts and try to cross in the crosswalk which activates the green line each 5minutes for 5 seconds so you may end up in the middle of the avenue. Why don’t you get off of your bus closer to your job you may ask, let me answer: I am lazy, obviously I’m taking the bus that leaves me the closest to my job which is in the other way of the avenue, well there’s another that may leave me at least in the same side as my job BUT if I want to take this bus I have to take another one to reach the place for that bus and I am not that smart taking buses.
Another thing that makes me believe my city ain’t smart is how they try to be smart but are too lazy to do it. The other day I went to Walmart and the made a big area for picking what you may buy online with a special zone, different colors, etc. But it wasn’t working, they had the place closed by yellow tapes like a crime scene. And the reason a get mad about this is because when I saw the ad saying you could buy things online and just pick them in a specific place with your own cash register and stuff I was like “omg! this is a first world thing!” but later I saw they removed like 6 parking spots for this new thing and I have been to Walmart twice this month and it stills closed, #shame.
Other things are the lanes for bicycle riders which makes no sense by the way they’re built and how people use them like the motorcyclists which use these lanes for them, that’s something that makes me get maddd. Also the dumb time scheduling that the semaphores has. They need to prioritize some stuff over other and not just spend money in things that may sound cool but are just 🐮💩.
Also this can’t be a smart country by choosing a president who wants to take us to the 40’s. I was just telling my brother sooner today how I dislike my president, like a see some news or picture with him on it and I’m just like “ugh”. And I like politics, I’m not talking without knowing. BUT just in case you don’t believe me, they (government) gave the job of director of CONACyT (institute for Mexican scientists, research, schools, universities, technology, etc.) to a fashion designer. I’m sorry but it doesn’t sound like she has too much experience neither as a scientist nor a professor.
Okay, bye, hate talking about politics and I love it at the same time.
UPDATE: they removed the fashion designer of the charge, I think it was because of the well deserved critic from scientists and researchers.
