This week has been pretty low key which has been a nice change of pace. I discovered yesterday that the blinds/shutters (idk what they are....) in my window work really well. I closed them all the way for the first time....it is so dark, and I slept until like 11 which is really unheard of for me. It was nice.
Friday I decided I wanted go to the park to read and catch some sun....except for the fact that there was no sun to catch and it started to rain. ohh well. haha. It has actually been raining and thundering for the last few days. We went out around town on Friday night. There are a few English speaking pubs....where we speak English....with Irish/Scottish/English people. haha.
Yesterday my friend Kelsey and I took Haley (from Wake Forest) on a tour of the city, as she missed the tour that all of us MSU students got. There is this one park in Geneva that has huge chess boards on the ground, so we played a game. Well, Kelsey and Haley played a game. I tried to learn, it is difficult! We were complete nerds and tried to reenact the life size chess game from Harry Potter, it was hilarious.
So as you might know, Geneva is known for its cheese fondue....us girls were craving it last night. We got all dolled up to go the the restaurant, and then they told us that fondue was a seasonal thing and they do not have it in the summer. Who knew?? haha. so we just got pizza and it was equally as good!
I have a funny story. So, on Tuesday morning I went down to the kitchen to make lunch for work.....and my pantry was wide open. We all have keys to get in and out of our pantry and fridge. But mine was wide open....and my peanut butter was gone!!!!! and some crackers and an open bag of noodles?
They left the nutella. who would steal and leave the nutella? I was so confused, and really mad because I had just bought some jelly the day before to make PB and J's. Also, peanut butter is like really hard to find here, so my mom had sent it to me in the mail. oh man. it was war.
The reception guy told me he would look at the camera as see if he could see anyone....he later told me that there were too many people going in and out that he could not tell who it was. But that was before my friend Jon informed me that he saw my pantry open when he was in the kitchen at like 2am.
Moral of the story, I am an idiot and left it open, inviting people to steal my delicious peanut butter. haha. Anti-climatic, I know. However, Jon showed up at my door yesterday with a new jar of Jif peanut butter. The creamy kind. What a nice guy.
Work is going well. But beware, this job is making me really, really good at Cyperstalking people. There has been many a time when my boss will give me someones name and say, "find whatever you can on this person." It is amazing how much you can find on the Internet these days....
Overall, I am learning alot about AIDS in the world and becoming really familiar with terminology, organizations, and people that are involved in the world of AIDS prevention. I am thinking of writing my research paper on AIDS stigma and discrimination, and the laws that inhibit those affected with HIV/AIDS. I have been doing a bunch of research and I am really excited to write about it.
Alrighty then....that has been this week in a nutshell. I am planning on going to Venice next weekend. I just bought a eurail pass....I hope it gets here in time, as I bought it really late. whoops.
This morning I took a shower......and then but my pajamas back on. MLIA.
It might just be one of those days...it also does not help that it is raining and freezing outside.
However we might be going to a castle today or something.?.?.?.not really sure yet.
