So I stopped by my director's office today to pick up my Spanish student ID card and man do I look fabulous in my picture! Haha. They had to hand cut the background off the sides of my head and (Ava will love this) my mane looks like that of a ferocious lion. But I have it! As well as my student insurance card/information and a group picture! I don't have access to a scanner, so I took a picture of the photo and will present its poor quality to you here. (And if any of you don't know, you can double click the photos to expand them so you can see details):
The woman standing all the way to left is our director, Maria and her assistant below her, Maria Jose. My friends Natasha and Alex are to my left. I'm center back if you can't spot me. SURPRISE! Tall people in back. Chelsea and Arisa are in front with their legs to their chests. Brandon is being creepy in the back to the left with the sky blue shirt. Kira, from SF State is sitting in the bottom right. And Christina and Jason (also from SF State) in the back to the right in the floral tank top and bright blue shirt.
Also! I went grocery shopping today. I bought four full plastic bags (I need to get green bags!) and yet the most expensive thing I bought was honey at 3,25 euro. Yeah. We definitely found THE place to shop. I paid a total of 29,40 euro for the whole sh-bang and it was beyond worth it:
So I had to get the Frosties for breakfast. My friends and I doing the communal thing for milk which Spaniards DO NOT refrigerate and that is just weird. Hah. I've got some mint tea and honey. Canned red sauce for the pasta and canned garbonzo bean soup for my desperate-non-cooking evenings. Peaches, apples, and baby spinach. Yogurt, eggs, butter and Havarti cheese with sliced turkey. Some frozen pasta dishes (also for times of desperation). Peach juice (amazing). Onion and garlic powder (necessary to my life) and two fresh baguettes which were criminally cheap. They were warm when I bought them. (My mom is dying right now.)
Natasha and I carried our bags a good half a mile and up a hill so it is definitely siesta time. But I had to post this factual/informative little entry first.
I love you all!
