Awkward and Awesome Thursday: Confessions of a Bookworm

Swedish-Spanish Dictionary. Borrowed from our friends from downstairs.

Awkward:
  • Mild concussion and twisted ankle. In the same day. From two different accidents. Avila wants me dead.
  • Josh in a traditional Spanish Holy Week costume that makes him look exactly like a Ku Klux Klanner.
  • Every girl's worst enemy and greatest ally--eyebrow plucking.
  • Attempting to read the remaining two books of the Hunger Games series in a 72-hour period. 
  • Apparently the Spanish word for "preservatives" found in prepackaged food is not "preservativos." My professor couldn't figure out why I kept saying that Americans ate food with condoms in it.
  • I really need to get back to posting England and Ireland pics. Maybe one post a week for the rest of my life.
  • We're not going to be able to make it all the way through our Spanish lit book, although I doubt anyone else is upset by this . . .
  • Only one more trip from Avila before we go home :-( But it's to France!
  • Going home soon.

Awesome:
  • Writing again. I've been lazy the past several weeks.
  • Being done with my Jorge Luis Borges presentation. I love you, Jorge, but we've been together long enough.
  • Library promotion. This is living the lit nerd's dream.
  • Helping plan a friend's October wedding <3 Yay, for fall weddings!
  • The adorable Swedish boys living downstairs for the week. Josh has made new friends again :-) 
  • Party at a panederia (bakery) tonight! It will involve homemade donuts.
  • Waking up at 8 without an alarm every single day.
  • Looking forward to the first relaxing vacation of this semester in Avila. Having no plans has never felt so good.
  • I have discovered The Civil Wars. Taylor Swift meets Mumford & Sons and it doesn't suck? Win.
  • Monty Python's Flying Circus. Always.
  • Going to see the Hunger Games movie soon! (Well, in about a month)
  • Going home soon . . .
