Life as I Know It

So recently I’ve gotten a surge of “how is life there?” questions, but it’s sort of hard to answer that since life here is not that new and exciting. Don’t get me wrong, it’s summer here, so I’m not battling my usual seasonal depression. But, I’ve settled into somewhat of a routine that sort of lacks a wild and craziness that one might expect from living in Argentina.

The major difference is my day is completely shifted time-wise. I do not get up at 7am, shuffle off to work, eat lunch at 1pm, dinner by 6pm, etc. Here, I don’t see 7am (unless it was a particularly fun boliche night). Everything is shifted, which will be interesting to experience when my parents arrive.

I have a couple of jobs in addition to my fellowship, one which I recently quit since I’m pretty sure they were laundering money or something very sketchy. But, I don’t have an offer per se, so I’m left to my own accord, which means cafés to get out of my apartment. Weekends are spent out with friends, or staying in watching a movie, so really, I could be anywhere.

OMG this blog post, and seemingly my life, is so boring I’m contemplating deleting the entire thing. But, since I have nothing else lined up to post, you must suffer through. As a consolation prize for sticking with me, enjoy this picture of the beautiful Argentine sunset. I will spice up my blog (and my life) soon!
