Well... What can I say? I love this town! I've found a place to call home, that's for sure. Yes it's small, yes it's boring at times - mainly when the sun refuses to shine, but I love it just the same. So after arriving here in the beginning of the year, I find myself still living here with very little intention of moving on anytime soon. I really just can't bare the thought of leaving here.
I'm back to my pattern of cleaning the hostel each morning in exchange for accommodation, and working in a restaurant waitressing in the evenings. I'm working at Jimmy Jack's Rib Shack. Apparently I still work at the Thai Garden also, however I haven't done a shift there in almost 2 weeks bc I've been at JJ's. And I won't be there anytime soon seeing as I work at JJs every night this week.
I'm unsure if my method for saving money will really work out in the end, but I've decided that money doesn't matter that much and I'm quite happy here, so why leave and go pick fruit or whatever just to make more money..?
It's such a small place I've really gotten to know a lot of people in the town and have made some really great friends. I'm loving this because although I have some great friends at the hostel, eventually everyone leaves, so it's good to have local friends bc you know they'll always be around.
So I'm having a blast, working, partying, and just hanging out, loving life. Maybe partying too much haha When a friend asked about how my St Pattys day went, my summary of the night was:
5:49pm good from what i remember haha.. just got my camera back like 10 mins ago... and found out i went to the beach apparently... also marie bit me outside the salty.. she left a bruise.. and according to steve i punched a guy in the throat bc his name was brian... and i stole the majority of some dude's hotdog... i got home at 10am.. just in time to clean.. haha i practically ran across town i was at a friends house and apparently slept for awhile so they made me coffee, woke me up, made me drink it, then we just drank all night i was still drunk cleaning I should probably note that I live right behind a bar. It's basically our front yard. I end up there a lot. Then on the other side of the hostel is 2 bars. In the same building. Next to that there's a bar/cafe and next to that is another bar. It's so convienent. No taxis, no leaving ur car then having to get back to it the next day. lol. These are my new priorities in life.
