Today classes started. Well just our art class but the rest start on Monday. We had class at 1130 today and that was all we had planned. Chelsey and I stayed up pretty late last night. It's my fault, I just can't sleep. Sadly, she is the one person here to entertain me. We are pretty much hilarious, no biggie. I seriously could not have been roomed with a more perfect person for me. Thank freaking goodness we ran into each other outside of Spain prep class.
Anyways, I think our art class is going to be awesome. It's fun learning about a piece of art that you are actually going to see. Our first assignment? Go the the Prado Museum in Madrid, find the 10 pieces of art on our list and do a write up...pretty legit if you ask me.
After class, a couple of us met to plan our travel week trip. We are going to Lisbon! and let me tell you, it's going to be the best trip ever! I seriously cannot wait! We sat in McDonalds and planned it out...why is it that in every other country McDonalds is a nice place? Anyways, as soon as we got done planning that, 14 of the other girls came in and planned their travel week trip...yeah we invaded the Alcala McDonalds. It happens. Funny story: I got a Coke in McDonalds (way better here than in America) and was sharing it with Chels and she got mad at me for biting my straw! it's my straw girl, deal with it! We got a good laugh out of that...though we laugh at pretty anything the other person does...so maybe we aren't that funny. ha
We then went to a candy store and got a couple little things just to try them out. We may or may not have eaten the whole bag within twenty minutes.
After all that we took a bus to find out where church is and then headed home. We are kinda lame not to go out and do something on a Friday night. But we just don't know what's going on around here! and we are heading into Madrid tomorrow so we just decided to come home. Ana Maria made us dinner. I feel like i'm starting to understand her better. I learn the most while talking to her at dinner. She is way understanding and helpful! Tonight we talked about learning Spanish and she spent an hour just talking to us slowly teaching us things! Chels and I love it. I'm not being unrealistic and saying that i'll be fluent by the time I leave, but I do think that i'll be able to actually understand and communicate. I'm just so ready for my Spanish class to start on Monday so I can start learning more!
I know I already talked about this. But Ana Maria makes us soooo much food! I'm starting to get worried about it. And i'm way to scared to go outside and go running. I made this promise to myself that I would workout while here but I seriously live in the ghetto. There is literally a "group" of men outside my window this very second yelling. HECK NO am I going running out there....Oh there they go again. I can't look out the window cause then they'll see me and break into our house and kill me. No that is not "racist". They aren't mexicans. OOOOHHHHH I kid I kid! :) It's a Kanenwisher thing. Deal.
Well I finally uploaded pictures. I'll post a couple on here, just for you Mom.
This is our bedroom. I like it a lot.
Chelsey and I our first day out together :)
In Alcala. My favorite picture so far!
As a side note. Oscar informed me tonight that he has a girlfriend at school. I'm actually quite sad about it. But he did give me a kiss goodnight so I win. Take that 5 year old nina. You got nothing on me.
till next time
