nada mucho!

Well, I guess it's about time for another blog.

Nothing all that interesting has occurred in the last week.

A usual school day:

7:30- Host dad comes in "ARRIBA! AHORA!"
7:35- Pretend to wake up, then go back to sleep as soon as he leaves for work.
7:50- Wake up, eat cereal and leave for school
8:15- School starts
2:35- School ends
2:40- Come home
3:00- Lunch
4:00- Go to the beach, walk around town, or stay at home online
8:00- Take either bus or train to San Fernando for Soccer
11:30- Take bus home
12:00- Eat Dinner/Shower
12:30/1- Sleep

The weekends are much less consistent, but they usually consist of going to the beach until 9. Then, we all go home for dinner and meet up around 10 and try to decide what we want to do.

I'm slowly starting to adjust living here, and embracing/appreciate it.
Hopefully, its all downhill from here. The first month was definitely the worse.
I'm starting to understand more and more spanish, which is making things a little bit easier.

Alright, off to go eat cocoa puffs, then go to the beach!

P.S. happy halloween.

i look down where we are
i walk down the rivers
i walk upon the mountains
i swam in the seas
i flew in the sky
at the end i was with two feet on the ground
still i have my DREAMS

oh, life.. with its wonderful twists of fate.

kinda random, but I had this crazy dream a few nights ago about how I was in a plane and the engines died or something and I jumped out of the plane. I had a parachute and it was a lot of fun. But somewhat scary seeing a plane go down right next to me.

Basically, I want to try skydiving now.


Been failing at blogging lately.
yesterday: Didn't feel so hot. I think I had heat stroke, because i felt pretty much exactly the same as I did when I got heat stroke once before over in San Jose at a Soccer Training thing. Wasn't so fun. Some guys who were camping on the beach invited me over to their tents and I sat eating bread and drinking Kas (kinda like sprite) watching an amazing sunset. I started feeling a little better and decided to head home.
I ate dinner, then laid in bed for a couple hours listening to music. I went to bed, and woke up in the middle of the night with my back hurting so incredibly much. I told my host mom and she gave me some powder that you put in water. It tasted disgusting, but I think it is working a little bit.
