Don't cry for me, Argentina.

So, I know that I promised that I would update my blog yesterday, but I completely 100% forgot. I'm not exactly sure how that happened, and I know I have been a very mediocre blogger lately but I'm trying.

If you're wondering, I have 53 days left here in Argentina (and for the record, no I didn't know that, I just counted). I've been trying to be very optimistic about the time I have left and be very optimistic about life because things really aren't that bad. When I get depressed, I just remember that my life is much better than anyone on Gossip Girl's life.

For Tuesday, I had to read a book called "El Juguete Rabioso" which I think is a less severe somewhat similar version of a clock work orange but it's in spanish and it's by an argentine author. I liked the book a lot, but imagine if you were reading a book where you didn't know what half the words meant and when you bothered to look them up, some of them don't even exist. It was a challenge to say in the least, but I finished on Monday and actually had time to write my review and sleep, some.

There is nothing else really exciting going on in my classes. I seem to have found myself in a very lucky position, I have only one in-class final. And I only have one mid-term, which is an out-of-class paper. Go me!

None of this is interesting, sorry, I just don't really have a lot going on right now. Tonight, for the first time, I am actually going to go to a meeting for my internship and meet the people who work on the magazine. I only have a little over 6 weeks left to my internship and finally, it's starting! Woot. Oh and moving on, I have been researching internships for NY. I feel like I am super behind because my overachieving friend Erik has already applied for several, but that's just how he is. Also, he no longer has to go to class. Blah. I am applying for an even spread of internships I think, between magazines, publishing houses and with fashion companies. That makes me sound so much cooler than I actually am. Oh and if anyone knows anything about how to make a portfolio, let me know, I think I need one.

Today, I am going to the study abroad office to ask about some hypo-allergenic detergent. And then I have my meeting, in the interim, I plan to read OperaciĆ³n Massacre by Rodolfo Walsh for my Spanish class tomorrow.

I know, it's all so very thrilling. Well at least this weekend is Argentina's bicentennial celebration for independence, it's a big deal. Hopefully, I will do something remotely interesting, most likely not though.

more love
