My semester is almost over.
In fact, I have just 13 pages left to write, for 2 papers, over the course of the next 4 days.
If you remember, last year I celebrated the end of fall semester finals with a trip to Puerto Rico. Admittedly, that would be hard to top. We left the morning after my last final, and spent just over a week relaxing on the beach.
This year, we’re leaving approximately seven hours after I turn my papers in and going to Argentina for two weeks!
Not only will it be warm – think low 80s – but I’ll also be able to check a few more things off my list: reading for pleasure, traveling abroad, and hablando español. Plus, I’ll get to meet more of BNF’s family!
When I went to Buenos Aires with Cla, we had a blast. We played tourist, shopped, ate, saw tango shows – and we did it all using my high school Spanish and a college friend we had down there.
It was a learning experience.
This time, not only have I been practicing, but I also have BNF and his family to translate – or to at least repeat phrases a little bit slower.
If nothing else, I know that I can shop and order food on my own.
That has to count for something.
Now, just a few more days…
