Apologies for the lack of posts this week but I was pretty busy (yay!). Tuesday was a fairly ordinary day at work and then a weird aerobics classed called Body Attack that was not that revolutionary. I still need to try the tumbling one. It was, like most latin american 1 hour commitments, roughly 42 minutes. That night, we had a house dinner which was … Continue reading Week Two: When things start to get busy
Last thursday, I headed home after work and I was tired. I bailed out of going to the gym (boo for blog accountability but I went yesterday) and was sitting in my room feeling very exhausted.

There were student suicides, weeks of … Continue reading I’m back (and blogging from Mexico)
Hi twitfam, Many apologies for the long delay in between posts but it’s for a few reasons. First of all, I spent five days traveling to the Salta and Jujuy provinces in the Northwest of Argentina, all by myself!! It was something I really wanted to do but I was really nervous and spent the few days before barely sleeping and just wondering what … Continue reading Salta, Jujuy, Solo YOLO etc.
Hey twitfam, The last few days have been crazy with a capital C but so much fun. I also have been planning to write this post for days but am suddenly ridiculously busy so here it is. Last thursday, my afternoon class at UBA was canceled because the facultad (department/campus) was taken (tomado) by the students because they were unhappy with the selection of the … Continue reading Clubs and Cordoba and Cuestablanca (etc.)
