My day by day, play by play

Hmmm…I was thinking that I should fill the world in on what I’m doing in my life—not just the exciting stuff. I enjoy school for the most part from 9-1 Monday-Friday. After school I usually come back to my house for lunch and converse for about an hour with mi Abuela. Then I get together with Wendy, Callie, and most days Andrew too. Sometimes we wander around the city, other times we study (ok, we have good intentions to study—but then we start talking in English and Spanish is forgotten), and other days we go to Cusco Coffee (our Starbucks equivalent)
and get drinks and some sort of dessert and use their free Wi-Fi (only place that we’ve found that has free fast Wi-Fi). Around 6 we head back to our houses and I eat dinner with Mi Abuela from 7-8. Then I come back to my room and piddle around till 9:30 or 10 and get ready for bed. Now that I have melatonin (Thanks Mom!!), I sleep really well and don’t wake up till close to 6:30 or 7.

To let you in on my little secret world, in the evenings, I get homesick. I think it’s because I’m bored and alone. I mean honestly—at 8 o’clock I can’t go to sleep, and although I enjoy reading, I really would prefer to be with people. And because I can’t talk to people I want to more. So, I read my Bible, and pray and sing songs to myself….but that doesn’t take away the desire to be with people. Or just go home for the night:) I'm not super homesick though. It comes in waves. Like in Hawaii, every 7th one is a big one...but other than that, they're pretty lame.

So, Last night I was in my room and I just happened to look up and see a HUGE spider on my ceiling. It’s not directly above my bed, so I can’t reach it, but now I’m thinking, ‘How am I going to sleep tonight with that thing in my room and no way to kill it!? You know it’s going to come lay eggs in my ears while I’m sleeping and bite me so that I die and it can use my body as a home.’ I’m just going to pray that it decides to crawl back outside because I’m boring.

This evening, I’m at the office because we’re having our quarterly meeting with all of the people involved in Extreme. It’s amazing how this works. People in Idaho, Indiana, California, and Peru will all be involved in the same meeting over the internet. Crazy! I don’t know how this thing works, but I think it’s really cool.

  1. It's almost like you are on fear factor...over coming your fear of spiders! I can't even comment on your loneliness or i will cry even harder. Just know we are thinking and praying for you all the time. Love you so much! Mom
