I feel as though I haven't written as much or as often this school year, and I apologize for that. I think the reason why is that this year, being in Puerto Rico feels more like home. I have a life here now. I have more friends from the area than I did last year, and I know my way around a bit better. This means that the weekends are less about heading off to find the next adventure, and more about decompressing from the week and spending time with friends--like a normal person.
Last weekend, on Friday, Kelsey and I had a joint birthday party for each other at her apartment. The night was a complete success, with lots of food and drink and great company. We ended up with enough leftovers to throw two or three more parties. :)
Saturday, we headed to Playa Caribe (a local beach) for a full day of relaxing in the sunshine. I came home with a slight sunburn--proof I was at the beach which I haven't had much of so far this year.
And Sunday, I spent at home, cleaning and grading and relaxing. Kezia came over in the evening, and we watched a movie together.
So you see? It's just life. No big adventures, no exciting stories. And yet, that's the way I like it. I am enjoying this year as much, if not even more, than last year.
In other updates: I currently have a non-functional computer. It's my own, fault, of course. The computer may have, err...fallen off a table. In the process, the charger was damaged at the point where it plugs into the computer. After several hours (days?) of panic as to what I would do when eventually the computer would no longer recognize the charger, and my battery would die, I did come to my senses and save all documents necessary for day-to-day life onto a flashdrive. My computer is now dead, but I can use the school computer during the day, and in the evening, my phone's internet connection has been a blessing, allowing me to stay connected to the all-important facebook world. I ordered the new charger, and it should be here soon(ish). Fingers crossed that that's the only problem with the computer.
I got the brakes fixed on my car last week as well. Now I only have 2...maybe 3 or 4...issues left to fix on it (ranging in importance, of course, from big to small).
And of course, the other big news from last week was my birthday. I completed my "peseta"--my quarter. I'm 1/4 of the way to 100 years old! Thankfully, there's no quarter-life-crisis for me. I'm quite pleased with the way I'm living my life.
