I’m missing kitties a lot right now.
Also, it’s weird and nice that I talked about extreme homesickness yesterday and now people are reaching out to me with and without knowing that I mentioned it. I think now at the two month mark, homesickness is kicking in for me and for my loved ones too. For those loved ones reading this, I miss you and I love you lots.
I’m so happy that I’m getting a chance to tap into myself as a person and an artist through this project. It’s like I’m a kid again, but I get to think and create from a more real and self-aware place. I’m growing a true love for writing this blog, even when I don’t know what I’m doing or don’t feel like I’m contributing very much. I’m still creating something, and that matters, right?
If you can’t tell by this weird post, I’m in a weird mood today. Maybe it’s from not really resting after a crazy week and a half of travel, or maybe it’s just a combination of lots of other things. I’ve been in a shopping kind of mood all day, which usually isn’t a good thing for me or for my bank account, but today I haven’t had the motivation to care that much. I bought hand lotion, a new nail polish color, a yoga mat I can actually use and like a lot, and a pair of workout/travel leggings I’ve been searching for for a while. I looked for other things like healthy breakfast options and peanut butter and a very specific warm scarf, but I need to do some more research before I decide on those.
I actually spent a lot of the day out with two friends from my Spanish culture class because our first midterm is tomorrow. We studied at a cafe I introduced them to and then went shopping together in the evening. I need to do some more studying before I sleep, but as I’m writing this I’m realizing how exhausted I actually am. I think once I get sleep I’ll feel and function better. I’ll leave off with one last thing before I get ready for bed: the teacher I work with at the English school messaged me today and said the kids missed me last week while I was away. Apparently they really like me, and that’s probably the highlight of my day. I can’t wait to go back to the school on Wednesday. And now, sleep.
