The rest of the day I really didnt do much, other than eat and sleep because I was so tired from getting up early to go to the airport.
The past couple days honestly have been a little boring in comparision to what I have been doing. On the first night we (two guys and four girls) decided to explore the neighborhood. They ended up having to take me back home because of a BAD stomachache. Which is weird because you would think that since I have been here for 2 weeks I wouldnt have any problems, but no. So on our first real day we had a city tour, where we walked around for forever in the awful Costa Rican heat. Which before the tour we were told not to take anything so we wouldnt be subject to pickpocketing. The tour ended up being good because I got to see the better parts of the city. Then we had a forever long orientation. Yesterday we had to get up early to be at the university by 8 so we could have our oral part of our placement test, which I the first one to go, because I didnt' want to set around and wait all day because I wasn't going to get any better at spanish by just setting there. My interview lasted all of 2 minutes, and I thought I had crashed and burned. So I was pretty freaked out that I wasn't going to place into the class that I needed. Next we had another (way to long) orientation for the university. The only thing good about it was we good a free shirt, which by the way XL here is more like a medium, so needless to say my shirt doesnt fit. So that sucked. So after that a group of us ventured back into the city to the market downtown. Where we tried to make friends with the locals to get better deals on stuff. I got a set of coasters for 10$ that were originally priced 16. So at 6 we had to go back to the university and check to see what class we were placed into, which litterally are pieced of papers stapled to a board, you would think in an enviornmentally concious country they would find a better way. Luckily I placed into 210, which was what I wanted. And last night all of us went to our first Tico party. Where some of us had a little to much fun before our first day of classes.
today was our first day of classes. Which I thought would never end to be honest. so now i'm working on my homework and I might go out
