I know I didn't update that long ago, but through some less than fortunate circumstances I'm trapped alone in my house tonight. I was theoretically supposed to work with my group on our essay tonight, or at least I assumed we would get together to work today because to me it seems dumb to try to do it ALL the day before it's due. But the plans fell through because my group never got back to me and I had no way of contacting them since I'm out of minutes and the internet at my house was down. What really sucked about this scenario was that I missed a chance to go out with my family because we all assumed I would be working on this essay. But I figure I might as well put the time to use and also it's probably good for anyone thinking of going abroad to know that sometimes stuff like this happens. Plus I'm sure you'd love to hear how I entertained myself during a night in here in Quito.
Basically I got a whole new sampling of Ecuadorian tv haha
-New favorite telenovela is specifically for women and dealt with the issue of drumroll please psychological pregnancy haha!!! What women couldn't identify with that??
-Catwomen is hands down the worst possible "superhero" movie I've ever suffered through15 minutes of and I think the Spanish made it more bareable
-Enjoyed almost all of The Goonies., which just as good in espanol. Loved the hairstyles!
- Still don't know if 'Riverworld' is a really weird movie or a crazy LOST like tv show...
Other things I during this very short week
-Changed the location of my internship (I'm going to be in an indigenous Morris sized 'metropolis' now!)
-Had a round table style interview with the staff of my future internship
- Learned they are absolutely loco about the last intern they had so I have big shoes to fill
-All my future coworkers seem really open and friendly
-Got a private history lesson from my professor who drove me to my interview
-Helped my family rearrange the living room
