I hope you can imagine me laughing my ass off. Because that’s exactly what I’m doing right now.. I can’t believe it’s already Summer and I have not written anything since Spring Break.
So since I have a lot of free time, I figured I might as well try to keep you guys updated with my more than okay life. I’m back in my beautiful country, Panama, and I’m beyond happy. It’s hot and humid and I love it. For some reason, it seems that anything and everything will give me allergies. I still can’t figure it out but at random times I will start sneezing and my eyes will water. At first I thought it might be dust or the fact that I hadn’t been in my room for a very long time but I’ve been here for a little bit more that 2 weeks and I’m still sneezing. And not just in my house but whenever I leave or in restaurants and whatnot. I’m starting to believe I’m now allergic to Panama. Which of course sounds about right because I’ve missed this place so much and now that I’m here, it’s only right that I should be in such misery.
I honestly thought it was going to be more exciting to be back home and see my friends. But the truth is, it feels like nobody did anything. And I just came back and started where we left off. I’m not good at keeping up with friends, so that explains why I feel like an outsider. But to be truthful, I’ve always felt like an intruder, even with my so-called friends. Also, most of my friends are studying in the US too, so either they’re ridiculously good at keeping up or we’re all just pretending that we just graduated from high school and we’re still as close as we used to be. Either way, I haven’t been out much and I’m just keeping to myself really.
I’ve been to the movie theatre a LOT. We literally pay $6 for a movie ticket and on Wednesdays, it’s half the price. It’s ridiculously cheap compared to the US! I went to see Godzilla, it was okay. X-Men Days of Future Past, I hated. Maleficent, I loved. And The Fault in Our Stars, I cried.
As you can see very well, my social life and love life aren’t really in their highest points.
This last weekend, my family and I went to Bocas, which is a very nice tourist place with beaches. I really wanted to go because I think the last time I was there it was on 2010, if I’m correct. We took a little plane, which honestly took 45mins, and once you’re there, if you want to move around and not stay in town, you have to move around in little boats. We were actually staying on another island and those little boats are my favorite thing ever. It was cloudy and raining some days (it’s actually winter over here) but the last 2 days were sunny and bright and I still don’t understand how I got this tanned. We took a sailboat and we spent the whole day on it. We did some snorkeling, sight-seeing and of course, tanning. I’m like cinnamon-colored, so whenever I catch the sun, it looks like a bronze glow but this time I was red and I never ever tan red. Everything hurts and itches and my face is already peeling but oh well, it was worth it.
I died my hair and I honestly don’t know why I’m writing about this but somehow it ended up being kinda red when I told the nice lady I wanted it a caramel-brown color. I don’t really hate it but I don’t love it either. I don’t really mind it. I cut my ends as well because they were chaos. I’m trying to grow my hair out again and it’s not taking long now.
I started working today, which was amazing. At least I get to do stuff during the days. I’m working at the same place I did last Summer, so I know everyone and they really like me. They made me do inventory which sucks but I did it anyway and I feel accomplished. I’m excited to go back tomorrow.
I guess I just told you a bunch of random information but I intend on keeping up with my ‘midnight rants’ and hopefully you guys come back and read them.
Keep in touch,
