As 2013 is quickly coming to a close, here is what we’ve been up to as of late… The second week of December was more or less another normal workweek in terms of fulfilling personal assistant duties, English lessons, intercambio, and babysitting. It is nice to find a routine even with a super polyvalent jobContinue reading “Wrapping up 2013…”

Picking up where I last left off, the pancake dinner at Marta’s was a big hit. We even had some blueberry jam to top them off! Pancakes are not even close to being a breakfast staple here, but rather more of an American novelty dessert item. Hence, we had them as the much-anticipated dessert postContinue reading “Sweater Weather.”
Shaking Things Up.
So Halloween ended up being a blast here! Halloween is a thing here, but not as big of a holiday as it is in the states I would say. On the actual day of Halloween, Cass and I went to Damian’s family’s apartment for a festive dinner (there were even Halloween cake-pops involved)! What IContinue reading “Shaking Things Up.”
All you need is less.
All you need is less. I have been thinking about that quote a lot lately… given my reality at the current period of time, less is the name of the game. Doing more with less, having MUCH less of an autumn wardrobe from which to choose, and making less of a deal about Halloween costumes. Continue reading “All you need is less.”
At the end of the day, you can roll with it or opt out.
So Emily, Cass, Brittany, and myself met up with Ignasi and Billy on Saturday night to go out in the Marina area of the city, which we had heard nothing but good things about. I hadn’t been out in Marina since back in 2011 (going to the Oveja Negra over there and to Razzmatazz forContinue reading “At the end of the day, you can roll with it or opt out.”
Hot Child in the City
Hi friends! Forgive me for getting a little bit more lax in keeping you updated… September has been such a great month here so far… There is always someone visiting Barcelona and September is a holiday / festival-filled month. Not only does each neighborhood (barrio) in Barcelona have its own annual festival, but also theContinue reading “Hot Child in the City”
September updates… Since we last spoke here are some updates on my life in Barcelona:
Like a Moth to a Flame.
I cannot believe it’s already September! Things are going well here – I am now employed with a part time English teaching position at a private children’s language academy just outside of Barcelona. Yay for having an income again soon! We had a good weekend filled with celebrations… On Saturday, Cass, Clare, and I wentContinue reading “Like a Moth to a Flame.”
Well we are in our fourth week of living in our apartment in the Gracía area of Barcelona. Things we like about the apartment: beautiful hardwood floors, great air flow, scenic views from the terrace and back windows, solid Wi-Fi connection, general atmosphere of the neighborhood, and the fact that we’re the second highest floorContinue reading “August Update…”
The Base of Everything Else.
It’s funny how physical distance, time differences, scheduling conflicts, and life in general can slyly attempt to refashion old relationships into altogether unrecognizable entities. I say it’s funny because sometimes said independent variables can gradually shape what were once previously conceived to be cherished relationships into insignificant and circumstantial ties. Everyone has those relationships thatContinue reading “The Base of Everything Else.”
