Carolina trátame bien

Did you miss me people? Ugh...silly question, of course you did! This week has been hard after the news I received last week, but I am extremely lucky to be surrounded by the most amazing friends I could ever wish for! Even though I was away from home and my family, I had my friends here who supported me at difficult times like this. Not to mention all the messages I got from my friends abroad, I really thank you all for your support!

As people might wonder what my plan is, I'm going to write it on here so I won't need to explain the situation to each one of you. Next week I will be heading to London where I will be staying for a week, then I will be going to Finland for four days to be at the funeral and after that I will be coming back to Sevilla through Barcelona where I will stay for a day. So that is the plan mas o menos! Lot's of travelling, but it is really important for me to attend the funeral. My grandmom meant a lot to me and I could not possibly stay here without saying a last goodbye.

I was thinking if it would be appropriate to write about my trip here after such a short time of what happened, but on the other hand I know that my grandmom wouldn't like it if I stopped my life and cried in my room the whole day. She wouldn't want me to be sad all day and do nothing. She is in  good hands now and even though it is sad that she isn't here anymore she will always be in our memories.

Soooo to continue with my life here. After all the things that happened it was also a very sad week because two of my favourite chicas left Sevilla and decided to go to rainy England because they had some visa issues...oopsy! Stupid visas, I hate u -_-
Glamorous! I know they are going to hate me for posting this picture on here, but I love it! Please don't hate me Pia and Tess :) Looking forward to see you in London!
I don't know if it is just me, but when a crisis hits or I have too many things going on in my head I become obsessed with cleaning. It is some kind of therapy to just focus on doing one specific thing and not thinking too much about other sad stuff. Raise your hand if that happens to you as well...okay, it's probably just me raising my hand right now, awkwaaaard!
As you can imagine living with six people in one room can bee really messy sometimes and the floor was just so gross that it needed to be rescued. There was so much trash that we ended up throwing away three big bags of rubbish. Thankfully the mission is accomplished now and we can see the floor now, score! So happy to live in a clean environment again...estoy muy contenta!
Good job to me and my roommates for cleaning all that dust!
 This week has been extremely sleepy. As you can tell I am not a morning person...trying to look as fresh as possible but it's pretty hopeless! One day I woke up thinking that it was one o'clock and when I asked Lulu what was the time she told me it was five o'clock in the evening...that was not a happy moment for me -_- I must say though that I had a really rough night shift the night before, so that might have affected my beauty sleep. It is a fact that I love to sleep, but that was too much even for me!
I am sure you are wondering why I am showing this. Well, I have been passing by this street every day and it has these shops one next to another that sell wedding dresses. You can't just walk without admiring the dresses they have. Definitely would never pay 3000 euros for a dress though, way too much! Not getting married any day soon...that's for sure!
This was taken a couple of days ago while I was working at the reception (I really do work hard...I promise). The whole street was just packed with people and I didn't really understand why all that was happening. I asked my friend from Sevilla and he told me that they were celebrating the 25th anniversary of the coronation of something, something. Mmmmm interesting! (having a bad memory is really annoying -_-)
Lulu and Riley :) These girls make me so happy! <3
 Two days ago we went for shopping (ended up buying a dress for 10 happy) and we found this cool/weird shop where they had all this crazy stuff for halloween. I am not a fan of halloween but those glasses were definitely funny!
 Yes, this is a very blurry picture but for some strange reason I really like it
Going back to the hostel after a night out with the girls. Had the best falafel ever and then went to bed feeling really satisfied that I had that falafel. The little joys of life! Probably not the best decision to eat it that fast as I felt a bit sick afterwards, but I enjoyed every bite of it. Once again food rescued my little hero <3
I also had a really good laugh whith Riley yesterday when she tried to say in Spanish "I am afraid"( ="tengo miedo"). She really did try hard but what came out didn't really mean the same thing as she said "Tengo mierda!"= "I have shit!". I am sorry Riley, but I am going to remember this for many years to come :)
Halloween decorations at the hostel...buhuhuuuuuu! I really like that ghost Alicia made out of her old sheet hehe
Today I worked on the morning shift and as I had only five beds to make they put me clean the fridge for the rest of the time. Oh boy...that was hard work! I was really pleased with the result though and made everybody to check out the fridge when they went to the kitchen. I am one of those annoying people who brag about how well they do their job and I expect to get positive feedback...still a child deep down!
Also another thing that I really have to share with the world is that there is one really evil person in the hostel who has been eating (or actually stealing) my food! How many times do I have to say that Karolina doesn't share food!?!? That person ate my bread, pasta, bananas, ham and cheese. They had my name on them! When I saw that the cheese was missing I almost had a heart attack! I was already quite annoyed when I saw that things were missing but why....why the cheese?!! Gladly it was gouda and not my expensive 99 cent brie...phew! That person won't get away that easy...I will track you down sneaky little food thief. I will find you! -_-
Other than that life has been pretty calm around here. Cold weather has finally arrived in Sevilla and I must say that I don't miss it that much after all...bring the sun back!
Awkward smile...
Trying to stay awake as I am having a night shift again and I am in desperate need of a kebab....ahhhhhh!
Before ending this post I have to share this song as Lulu has been singing this to me all day! Terrible lyrics, but the melody isn't that bad.
¡Buenas noches!
