Day 1 in Buenos Aires, Argentina

I made it to Buenos Aires, Argentina!  . . .  My first 24 hours here were a whirlwind of emotions. I couldn’t believe that I was actually here (it seems too surreal). I was so happy that I finally made it! But, after the initial feeling of amazement and happiness, the culture shock hit me. I…

“People walk in, and out of your life!”

That’s just how it is. Sometimes there’s no good reason. It just…well…happens… People will leave. You won’t get any warning, Or explanation. They won’t tell you why. They just leave without talking.

Harsh life lesson…

So, recently I learned, more like experienced, a not so fun situation. It was an experience that taught me a pretty harsh life lesson (or at least, that’s what I thought at first). I always knew deep down that these days existed, but for some reason, when it finally happened, it hit me hard. ….

Coco!

So, I just had a “weird” experience. . . . I just went to the movie theatre here in Chile and watched a Spanish movie (w/o subtitles). . . . It might not seem like such a weird thing, but that’s the best word I could think of to describe it. It made me feel…
