Wednesday Is The New Thursday

Wednesday, May 12th, 2010

It’s been awhile since I wrote about anything interesting…I haven’t done anything remarkable lately. Besides sleep for 13 hours. (Okay, this was partially allergy medicine induced,  leave me alone.)

All this sleep is unfortunate considering what a wonderful city I am in! I should be doing tons of things! I feel guilty about that. I suppose I am in sort of  a rut. I haven’t been sleeping normally or feeling well the past week and I hope to change that soon. Class has been boringggg.

I am also stressing out over nothing. I think recent graduation pictures might be to blame? Am I really next? Wait a second, I should have changed my major(s) 4 semesters ago! Yes, I have been thinking about education again. Which would add 2 more years. Whoops. Maybe I stayed with Business and International Affairs (which I would have had to have one of anyway) because I feel like I can do anything with them. Not anything, but they are both so broad and unbinding. If I ended up with a Masters from UMW…I’d actually be a teacher, the end. And that’s scary. (I realize I am never stuck in any profession…but still.)

Scratch that. I wrote that last night. I think I definitely maybe want my MLS now.

Why am I not talking about Buenos Aires?

I went to El Ateneo Grand Splendid today:

I’ve been there quite a few times now and like going. Even though it’s kinda far and I came home in a very very crowded Subte which is never fun. Anyway, I feel sick so maybe I will watch a movie and go to sleep.

My Computer Is Back!

Sunday, April 18th, 2010

Hola a todos! It’s been awhile, huh? I wrote an entry on my iPod the other day but was unfortunately not properly saved. Ah well it would have been outdated by now anyway.

So I’m finally back on my computer after almost 5 weeks! Sure is nice. The tecnico, Ernesto, and I are now best friends. He ended up coming to my apartment to fix my computer 3 times. Maria and I had a whole discussion about how we thought he would definitely speak English, but he didn’t. Anyway, I love (and greatly miss) excellent customer service so much I extended my warranty with Dell for two more years.

Back to Buenos Aires- I spent the weekend spending my food money shopping in the city (whoops). Friday I stayed closed to home, Saturday spent the afternoon in Palermo, Sunday in San Telmo (of course). It just starting hailing and it’s VERY loud. Speaking of the weather, it’s starting to get a little cold here, which means all of the porteños wear warm jackets, boots and scarves while I’m fine in jeans and a t-shirt.

Since I have been so delayed in updating my trips, I think I will write one separate entry for each Iguazu Falls, Punta del Este and Mendoza within the next couple of days. Maybe even tonight!! But don’t get your hopes up, I have to “study” for my two midterms Wednesday…
