At this point in my life there is nothing that I want more than to travel. It has been my greatest desire to backpack through Mexico. I think this was inspired by Y Tu Mama Tambien but inspired even more by Ofus' sister who climbs mountains and walks through the jungles of Chiapas. I want to find beautiful beaches, volcano's, waterfalls, jump into simple lives, learn their ways, take in their culture.
I have been in this city for exactly one month and I think I am done here. It's a great city, wonderful people, things to do, free free free; food, museums.. But I just feel like I am a slave to this this lame so called "studio" with poor natural lighting and paper thin walls. Maybe things would be different if I had a bigger place or if I had a real job.
I couldn't go to school yesterday because I had to choose between paying for parking or taking the bus to work..3 dollars, that is all that I have. My bank account is completely empty as is Hecky's.
The city is so attractive, but I don't think it is for me. All I can think about is how lovely and simple life is in Mexico(well with family.) I miss learning, making music with my classmates, seeing my classmates faces every morning, working a solid job and most of all Hecky's family.
On a lighter note, I began tutoring yesterday and it was pretty cool. I don't think I have ever felt so useful. The kids were stinky with puppy breath and the residue of a full day sticking to their clothes, hands and faces. There were a few obnoxious ones but I'll get them under control. A few weeks ago one of them swore to the heavens that one of the tutors was a "white bitch" I can't wait to see what name I'll get.
My Favorite is Tommy Wuang, I'm helping him one on one which is awesome. It was really hard when the second group came in and I had to tend to 4 kids at once all working on different assignments.
I should actually be looking for a second job right now.
