-Had an amazing workout at the beach with Maeghan (my thighs are sore and it’s awesome) -Had an awesome conversation with my mom for the first time in almost a week (and although it dwindled away half of the minutes that were left on my calling card, I’m totes satisfied) -Got in contact with my boyfriend and managed to see my skype struggle for about a minute and half with trying to connect to the Northern hemisphere -My hair has never been softer than it currently is -My roommates decided I should be a professional story-teller -I finally started tackling my laundry (I have to wash it all by hand) -It’s raining -I go to Rocinha tomorrow to set up for the party we’re having with the adult students from i2i, and living it up at said party -The only pictures that have made their way on to facebook just show me drinking and being on the beach, but I swearsies, I’m being productive -I’m significantly less homesick and upset -Internet signal has been surprisingly good in my apartment -I think we broke the TV -Coke is still really delicious here. As is the mango. As is the pineapple.
I get this increasingly lonely feeling just because I can’t seem to get a hold of my mom every time I try to call (which is not fun to do because I have to dial about eighty numbers for my calling card and then I end up with all that work and I can only leave a message for her) and my boyfriend looks like he’s having the time of his life without me around…
Whatever. It’s only the first week. I need to calm down. This is all just circumstantial. (I just needsta breatheeee)
Guess I’ll go run around Ipanema with Maeghan? (This food will be the death of us, I swear.)
My eye is falling out of my head. I need to make more space in my suitcase. I need to shower and buy my last-minute things for brazil. I need to clean up as much as I can in my room and in my car. (My mom will be invading both daily while I’m gone in Brazil.)
