I’m in India and I pretty much really hate it and hate that I’m here, but I’m hoping that feeling will fade asap. Like, okay, I won’t say this anywhere except here but there are two things I really am not digging right now. First, I’m not supposed to go anywhere alone, but that means asking people to walk with you and go everywhere with you and I hate that. Second, I’m so sick of Indian food, but it’s all we eat all the time ever. Like, in America we eat Thai food and Italian food and Mediterranean food and Chinese food (well, kind of) and American food and even Indian food. But all they eat here is American food. Lord help me. I also feel very awkward at my host family’s house, as anyone would living in some random family’s house. Plus, I might be rude as hell here. I don’t know if I’m being rude because I don’t really know what rude is. I also really want to buy India style clothing, but I haven’t yet, so I’m stuck wearing my shitty American clothes. Also, I really miss home. I miss my friends, I miss my mom and dad and grandma, I miss my cats, I miss my neighborhood and my apartment, I miss drinking and smoking, I miss America, damn. I would rather be in Seattle or DC or New York or fucking Utah, but not in India. I am sick of India.
Good news, though, my host family is really nice. I might get to go to and India wedding on Friday. My host family has 4 dogs (Sherry, Pepper, Sugar, and Brutus). I like the people I’m in the program with. Tomorrow we get to break into classes, so that should be cool. Then the day after tomorrow we will actually start doing classes and I will start having homework, which will give me things to do to take my mind off of how much I miss everything. Also, soon we will get paired up with out language partner, which will be nice. And we will start doing our cultural classes (I might do yoga or cooking or clay art, I don’t know yet). I have internet at the school I’m at, so that’s cool. Yeah.
I IM’d my mom last night and I really hope that she buys a phone card and calls me tonight because even though I will probably bawl my eyes out getting to talk to her, it will be soooooo nice to hear her voice.
Okay, bye for now.
