So, a wee bit of a sad blog this morning [11:22 am here] (ooh already picking up Scottish slang..wee.) Mom left at 6:30 this morning. We were awoken by our rude neighbors at the hotel next door at 4 am. It was irritating as all hell, and I wanted nothing more but to go next door and give them all hell...but I didn't...i was too tired.
Her taxi showed up, we cried and hugged, and reminded me that it was perfectly alright if I didn't like it here, and wanted to come home. Not going to lie, but if I do hate it (doubtful) it is nice to know I can go home, and I wont get crap from Mom and Dad..they'd be too happy to have me back.
However, I do like it here, and I am having fun.
Today Heloise and I are venturing back to City Centre (Shopping Mecca) and we're going to the "Everything's A Pound" ($2 Dolla store!) and buying stuff we need for our flats! It should be great fun. Tonight is Salsa dancing with the international student association (how many more snide American comments will come my way...we shall see) and then there is a stoplight party at the GUU (Melinda knows what I'm talking about!) It is where you wear Green for Single, Yellow for "It's Complicated" (in facebook land) and Red for "taken" of course, I'll probably be the only person over 20, but whatever.
So that's it for now...I'll write more tonight..when the USA is alive and functioning, and not passed out. :)
