Happy Thoughts for Thursday

I almost forgot that today was Thursday!  Time is flying here, and the days are blending together.  This week has definitely had some ups and downs.  Let's think of positive things!

I had a successful spanish interaction.  Our class took a fieldtrip to an open market, and I bought some yarn.  I didn't have to ask for words during the whole conversation, for the first time since I've been in spain!  (I also only said "this" and "how much", but that's not important..)

Exercise.  As if walking aorund this city isn't enough exercise, I'm trying to run three times a week too.  From the aquaduct to my house is a quarter mile, so this morning instead of trying to run a full cirlcle in the dark I just ran back and forth between home and the aquaduct twice.  Even with the hill that lies between my home and the aquaduct I felt pretty good about that run.  It was an easy route that I can't wait to repeat and improve on.  

Nail polish.  For the last semester I've been unable to paint my nails, since I worked in the dining hall.  Since I don't have that this semester, I can paint my nails every day if I want to! That's a little extreme, but I do enjoy having colorful nails.

Planning.  I bought my plane ticket for spring break, and today we're planning out a trip for this weekend, and another for a month from now.  Planning has been pretty stressful, honestly, but I'm hoping that tonight's planning session will go smoothly!

Knowing where I'm going.  There are still moments where I think I know where I am, and then I turn a corner and I'm on the other side of town.  I'm hopeful that this is changing. 

Yarn!  I bought yarn in the market, and I'm really excited to get to work.  I found a couple cool crochet stitches online, and I think they'll knit up pretty nicely.
