It’s been awhile. I know.

It’s been awhile. I know.

Written: 03/29

I’ve had lots to say. A lot to blog about. Made notes and everything.  But between being sick and work I’ve pretty much just been vegetating at home and never getting around to typing out what I’ve written.

My uncles have gone overseas for two weeks and I miss them already! I’ve been looking after the kids (the five doggies). This means early morning wake up bark wars and going back to sleep until I literally HAVE to get out of bed and get ready for work.

I’ll be woken up between 5am and 7am by one of them breathing heavily right by my face.  But they’re adorable, but I guess getting so much love from five dogs and walking up and down two flights of stairs three times a morning is better than sleeping until 10am.

So it’s been over three months since I’ve been here now. Some random things I can say since the last update blog:

I ate key-lime pie for the first time and my life changed. How have I never eaten it before?

I’m now a taxi regular. It’s cold and I’m sick and lazy okay.

My uncles and I went to the city last Tuesday and it was amazing.  My cousin from Australia who I hadn’t seen since I was like six was there so we went to visit.

We were on the David Letterman show.  Walking around Times Square and hear a lady shouting ‘Who wants free David Letterman tickets?!’. I don’t even watch his show but I will definitely take free tickets to any show in New York nevermind getting to be in a live audience. So that was fantastic.

I definitely have to restart my Kayla Itsines BBG programme. I did it properly for three weeks and then got sick and lazy. So from Monday I will start over.

It’s meant to be Spring here but it’s still pretty flippen cold. I like it though. I am kinda terrified of summer now. After wearing so many layers for winter I don’t think I’ve ever been this pale.  After my trips to Israel in high school I was like a tanned surfer.  Now I look like I’ve been living in a cave for fifteen years.

I miss home. A lot. I miss Rhodes and all the memories. I really miss a lot of special people.  I won’t lie it’s really rough. But I’m taking each day as it comes:)

No one said it would be easy. I still don’t know what I want to do with my life. Besides the fact that I want to do my post-grad, I don’t know what I want.

I want to travel. I want an adventure. I know that for sure.

Life is a journey not a destination. ♢♢♢

The rest of the ten things I can say about life right now.

The rest of the ten things I can say about life right now.

6) Most Americans don’t use the word ‘keen’. Now I say keen quite a lot.  Eg: I’m keen to chill. Or, Do you want to go out? Yeah I’m keen.  No one seems to understand wtf that means here.  Keen = down for/ eager. But not all creepy omg I’m EAGER to see you kinda thing. That sounds appalling.

7) I missed one of my best friend’s twenty-first birthday party and it absolutely sucked. I wish I could have been there. It was so hard working all day knowing you’re missing shmeath’s 21st:( But it looked like it was amazing so I’m so glad my babe♡

8) I’m sick and it’s horrible. Nothing serious just a cold: runny nose, sore throat. Just basic flu. Over here, saying you have the flu makes people back away slowly. I don’t have a hectic flu where my entire body aches and I feel really awful.  Literally just sound like an old man and I have a cold.

In SA if I was sick with a runny nose and sore throat that was flu/ a cold. So I have no idea what to say to explain to people how I don’t need to be in quarantine.

9) I really miss everyone back home. A lot. But I’m doing my best and that’s all that I can do really.

10) I’m meeting more people and starting to get adjusted to working all the time and not studying anymore.

**lucky you here’s an extra thing I can say about life right now**

Bonus: I have the day off tomorrow, hells yes. ♥
