Happy Thoughts for Thursday

Real Madrid v Barca.  As anyone who knows me is aware of, I am really not a big sports person, unless that sport is Ball State basketball.  Who would have thought that I'd ever be sitting in a crowded bar on a school night, watching a soccer game?  I actually had a lot of fun, too.  People get really in to soccer, especially these particular teams.  I was in a room full of Madrid fans.  I'm curious what it would have been like if we had been in mixed company.

Cats.  In my free time I take pictures of the cats out my window.  It's amusing  really.  

Independent travel.  Last weekend I went to Toledo with a friend, and it was a blast!  As nice as it is to go on trips with family or with a class, it's even better to go independently.  We got to take our time wandering, seeing what we wanted to see, eating when we wanted to eat.  I had a good time, and I can't wait for our next trip, which is very soon!

Time management.  Some days I am better at this than others .  Yesterday I was on top of everything, and finished all my work by 5.  

"Appointments".  Tomorrow I have an "appointment" with a native spaniard who's learning english.  We're meeting at a restaurant for tapas to speak for half an hour in spanish, and half an hour in english.  She seemed really nice on the phone, and I'm pretty excited about this.

Textbooks.  I received almost all of my textbooks in the mail that I ordered for my online class, and I've been eating them up.  You know you're in the right department when you enjoy reading the required readings.  

Purposefully not being productive.  Normally after class I go home to blog and do homework until lunch time, and then I sleep and do more homework until I have to work.  Today after class I bought a snack and sat on a bench with my friends for an hour, enjoying the sunshine and the unseasonably warm weather.  It's still January, and we were out in tshirts.  I got a little sun burnt, of course, but I had fun.  I'm off to work soon, and I haven't done any homework, but I don't mind.  I enjoyed my afternoon off.
