The Waiting Game

8 months down, about 3 more to go!

rain 62 °F

Things around here have been pretty slow lately. Although I have a long weekend due to Monday being a Colombian national holiday, I don't have much planned. I made it to a movie with a friend last night, and tried sushi for the first time (which I was pleasantly surprised about, because even though I love fish, I wasn't sure how I felt about raw fish wrapped in seaweed. But I'm sure I will eat it again). Other than small things like that and teaching, I'm basically just waiting (im)patiently for my parents to arrive in less than two weeks. I'm very excited about their trip, as this will only be their second time out of the country, and I am the one who will show them around. It will also be nice just to have a part of home with me in my new, temporary home.

On another note, school has been going well. Time here is flying by. I cannot believe that we are in the last semester already. In August, when I was crying because of loneliness, I thought the 4th semester would never come. And I'm sure in July, when I'm on my way home, I'll be wondering where the year went. I'm already starting to wonder that actually. However, I know I will be happy to go home at the same time. Besides family time, I need some Matt time. We will both be so happy when we can have a relationship while we're both in the same country. Needless to say, it's difficult to have dates through skype, but we make it happen the best we can.

Well, like I said, I don't have much of an update, other than a little critter is somewhere in my house. I came home to a bit of a surprise after the movie last night, as a two inch spider greeted me on the door of my kitchen cabinet when I came home. Unfortunately for me, as I was going to kill it with a phone book, it scurried into the cabinet where all my pots, pans, dishes, and cups are. Yay for me! Who knows where that dang thing is now...probably forming a large spider family in my pots and pans. Hopefully, when my dad gets here in less than two weeks he can find it and kill it for me. That's what dads are for, right? : )
