so my neighbor has wireless now, and i can sometimes use it from my roof. which is what i’m doing right now. it’s a pretty sweet set up. & i loveee my roof, i could sit up here forever probably. there’s amazingly beautiful views of mountains on all sides. i can also see into my abuelita’s garden… she has tons of deliciousness there- lemons, avocados, roses (which me and my host sis picked today.. i now have a vase of them in my room..yesss. they’re gorgeous.) the longer i’m here, the more i feel like this town and this family are such a great fit for me.
& here’s some bullet points from my life. today i…
– had two classes: lengua y cultura and spanish grammar. i’ve been really liking my classes so far. tomorrow, i have yoga, my film class, and a spanish conversation class. none of my classes have more than 15 people and all my profs are great! i’ve especially been liking lengua y cultura (we’re talking a lot about the history of colonization and how it affects things, racism, etc, today & just a lot about social problems in general) and yoga (my teacher is super pleasant and i feel like i’m learning a lot).
– skyped with my fam! it was so much fun to talk to them, i’ve missed them. (hey guys! love ya! i don’t know if you read this or not… haha)
– went to visit fevi, the organization where i’ll be volunteering. i start tomorrow at the after school program, i’m excitedddd. i especially can’t wait to meet all the kids. there was so much energy at the after school program today.. it will be great!
– chilled with my host sibs for awhile. we made supper and watched some of nine. and me and my toddler brother had a massive tickle fight.
& nowww, my and my host sis are going to paint our toenails. and listen to beyonce. she loves the single ladies song. haha.
peace, all! te quiero.
