Catching up on my most recent one-liners:
Feb 3rd: I can hear the Super Bowl playing through my neighbor’s paper thin walls #SomeoneExplainToMeHowThisIsFair
Feb 3rd: I wonder if they know I’m basically related to Russell Wilson since I’m a Badger #InviteMeOver
Feb 3rd: I wonder if they are drinking every time they don’t understand what the announcers are talking about #IThinkWeAllCanSympathize
Feb 3rd: No…#Badgers
Feb 3rd: All I can think about is how I should be eating buffalo chicken dip and drinking IPAS with my family #SB48
It was so weird being away from home for the first time during the Super Bowl, and not being able to watch it! I was thinking about all these things while lying in bed listening to my Spanish neighbors enjoy the festivities.
Feb 25th: Bangin’ is one of the most versatile adjective #JustSoYouKnow
It’s a good one. “That shirt is bangin!” – that shirt is cool. “This food is bangin!” This food rocks… you get the point.
Feb 25th: Blame it on the que-que-que-que-que-queso
Caved and bought queso processed cheese dip at the supermarket… made me so incredibly sick. wow never again.
March 2nd: If I cared about my hair at all right now I might be using an umbrella, but I don’t, and it’s Madrid on a Sunday so absolutely no one cares.
Rainy Sundays in Madrid are carefree.
March 3rd: I remember when everyone was like ‘hey listen to the lorde album’ and I was like ‘yeah will do’ – Well I finally did. #itsawesome
March 4th: The thought of reheated coffee is enough to make me buy another #caffeineaddict
March 4th: If you’re not listening to Eustace Scrubb by the Oh Hellos, you’re doing it wrong.
March 4th: One good thing about my broken phone speakers…I can never make the embarrassing faux pa of playing music out loud #GlassHalfFull
March 4th: Feliz Fat Tuesday you guys – I just followed my workout with a beer… so that’s productive right? #IfYouCantBeatThem…#JoinThem
March 5th: I can’t find my iPod #panicEnsue
March 15th: The more I see the world the more I realize I know nothing at all.
March 24th: ‘Are all USA dollars green?’ ‘Yes’ ‘But they’re at least different sizes right?’ ‘No’ ‘How do you not mistake them when drunk?’ #LOL
A conversation I had with a German friend of mine.
March 24th: Lesson learned: Euros are like monopoly money to aid Europeans in their night time endeavors.
March 24th: I will not, I repeat, I will not call it soccer #football #dailymantra #IWillLoseAllMyFriends
This is a constant struggle as the 15 year soccer player that I am.
March 24th: You guys, Germans call soccer: ‘Foozeball’… thus comes the name of the bar game #mindblown
March 24th: Europeans don’t use checks. Why are we still stuck in the 50s you guys? #CashLife
March 24th: Lately I’ve been adding ‘ito’ to the end of my friends names, it’s worked out pretty well so far.
Greatest thing ever: “Ito” for boys and “Ita” for girls. For example, a girl in one of my classes goes by Sar’ita’ because she’s the littler Sara.
March 24th: Friday I was introduced as ‘a nice Midwestern girl you bring home to mom and dad… the kind you marry’ #sayWhat?
I mean what an introduction!
March 24th: Just caught a student trying to pull the whole ‘phone up the sleeve’ thing #profeOlivia #dontPullMyOwnTricksOnMe #IWasInHighSchoolOnceToo
Sassy 15 year olds always trying to sneakily hid their phone and use it… not on my watch.
March 24th: Although I’d like nothing more than to collaborate with John Mayer on a song, It’s pretty clear that’s a relationship ender #TaySwift #KatyPerry
Thoughts while riding the metro home.
March 30th: ‘I can give you my heart but not my shot’ Overheard at the Porter House in Dublin
March 30th: Fly Ryan Air! The airline with the lowest fares and the longest taxis…ever.
Ryan Air flights land at least a 20 min taxi or more away from the airport gates… man.
April 2nd: I’m not versed in metro etiquette but standing up so fast that you seat slams into mine has got to be up there on the worst metroisms.
April 3rd: Not only have I broken the back of my phone today, I’ve gotten it fixed, that’s literally the fastest turn around I’ve ever had in Spain.
April 3rd: They should have a frequent rider miles program for the Madrid Metro cause I would have definitely earned a car by now….
April 11th: but seriously, at least be vulgar in Spanish if you must be vulgar at all, like joder tío.
April 12th: ‘Dos Cervezas por favor’ – Paco in the Mc Donald’s line cerca 5am at Madrid’s Airport… OKay Paquito, that’s one way to start spring break.
I then proceeded to order two hashbrowns, an OJ and a water, and the lady looked at ME like I was funny!!
April 12th: The security guy at the airport was like ‘hey fit your bag in there’ & I’m sitting on it…jumping on it and it’s not fitting in the bag measurer and he’s just like ‘Jesus just stop, it’s fine’.
My bag was just sliiiiightly too big to be considered hand luggage but the guy was sick of watching me jump up and down on it trying to make it smaller so he just let me go!
April 17th: Falling asleep to boats gliding past on a waterway canal in Venice #appreciatingLife
April 21st: Only 2 months and 5 days until I’m home. Just weird. Life moves so fast and so slow at the same time. How does everyone do it?
April 21st: Brandy Melville pants: “One Size does not fit Livvy”
Brandy Melville is a store here with “ONE SIZE FITS ALL” pants… WHAT?
April 22nd: How many clementines a day keep the doctor away?
April 26th: Why are clams always happy?
“Happy as a clam”…
April 28th: I’m late to work again, I will be greeted with hugs and chocolate by my principal… #Spain
I’m not really late (no worries mom), more like just on time. But still everyone here is so “No pasa Nada” about life, it’s great.
April 28th: I have one euro in 5 and 2 cent coins right now because all I want in life is a cafe con leche during my break at school.
May 6th: I was just one of those people who the metro driver RE-opened the metro doors for. Today HAS to be a good day, that never happens. #MetroMadrid
May 7th: 50 days left in Spain. Woooowwww
Until next time 🙂
