Let the countdown begin...
Today is November 10th. Which means I have 10 days left in Cape Town.
I honestly don't know how to feel about this. Of course I am beyond excited to get back to the states. However, I feel like I'm just getting settled in here, and it is kind of a waste to up and leave now. What about all the progress I've made? I'm hoping it doesn't all go down the drain the second I land back in America.
These past days have been extremely laid back, as I spend my days just studying for finals. In fact it feels a lot like my days at AU when I study study study for all my tests.
I had my first and most difficult exam yesterday, but I started studying last Wednesday. Basically its safe to say I lived and breathed 3rd World Politics until the test was finished yesterday. I'll take my Ethics exam on Thursday, and my last test, Photography, on Monday.
I have also been renting a car for the past few day, and will have it until I leave next Friday. It is SO nice to be able to just hop in and get where I need to go in seconds. Rather than waiting for the shuttle, or walking blocks and blocks. In general the car has just saved me time, and if you know me, you know I value my time above almost anything else. (except for chocolate cake, actually...Yeah it definitely goes 1. Choc. Cake, 2. Time, 3. Everything else.)
Speaking of chocolate cake, I have eaten way to much junk food while in Cape Town, and let's just say it hasn't been good for me. People used to always say I couldn't gain wait, which was partially true....until I hit 20. It was like: 20th birthday? BAM! here comes the fat. ugh.
oh well...part of life. But I'm oddly looking forward to being able to go out for a run when I'm back, especially through the MN cold and snow. Maybe because I haven't been able to run here? Most likely. I'll also be taking Pilates and Yoga for credit next semester, to make sure that I'm exercising at least 5 days a week.
Tonight I'm going out to a traditional African restaurant with my friend Naomi, called Mama Africa. We decided to go in order to celebrate (her) finals being over, and our last few days in Cape Town. It should be a good time.
I'll try to keep more updates coming in these last few adventurous days :)
