Maybe I was just in a good mood, or maybe I was in a bad mood. I dunno. But this made me very happy today.
Things are going well and I’m starting to actually feel like I live here. It’s quite different from Boston in so many good ways. People are ridiculously friendly, things are wicked cheap, and you can get fresh fruit and vegetables whenever and wherever you want.
It’s also quite different from Boston in many not-so-good ways. Nobody stops for you when you walk across the street. I’ve nearly been hit a few times. There are lots and lots of skateboards on campus. I’ve nearly been hit a few times. People drive more recklessly here. I *was* hit.
It’s been a good few weeks, aside from the car-being-hit incident, the monsoons, and the aforementioned computer theft. It’s nice to be in a super sunny spot, and I’m getting used to the heat. I confess I do enjoy the palm trees and swimming pools as well.
All in all, heroic professor iz heroic.
