getting over my summer cold

Again, not too much sleep last night. I went to bed at 10pm only to wake up at 1am. I just listen to the iPod until I fell back asleep. Thank god for NPR podcasts. I love NPR.

I was up and out the door by 9:30am. The subte was wicked packed today. It was the worst I've ever seen it. People kept pushing on and pushing on. I can't even describe just how packed it was. I'm just happy everyone smelled nice.

I taught 4 students today (no cute ones). By my last student I was exhausted. My job isn't difficult or exhausting, but I'm still getting over my cold. My body was so tired and worn down. As soon as I returned to my apartment I crashed; I slept for 2 hours.

I'm feeling better. Tonight I went to an outdoor ballet with my roommate. The ballet was held in a nearby park. We were able to walk there. The ballet was free, it's part of the B.A. summer cultural program.

Afterward we went for ice cream!

Money spent today
2.20 pesos for round trip subte
13 pesos for hot tea and 2 empanadas
5 pesos for a head of lettuce, a tomato and an avocado
6 pesos for 10 oreo cookies
9 pesos for ice cream
35.20 pesos / $10.12

Oh no! You got sick!
If you ever want me to mail you the Nyquil and Dayquil capsules so you have a stash, just let me know. I can send them in a padded envelope as media mail, and nobody will know nothin'.
Congratulations on 3 months!
