Those sound like great wounds to me (at least much better than the callous I have on my hand from making espresso drinks all day and gripping the safety rails in busses). I'm glad you finally updated about Mexico City! It sounds great. Learn Spanish. I'm completely jealous.
Well, the black eye came from my own fists. I was holding this maxipad looking pads that wrap around the forearm with velcro. I was exhausted from the class - like seriously exhausted; where it's a difficult chore to breathe. And anyway, I was too tired to properly hold the maxipads so for five quick punches, the bag, and my fist, was forced into my face.
So you're a barista now? Cool. You like it? Where are you at?
Ok, maybe that wound is not as great as the others, but still sounds kinda cool (except for maxipad stuff).
I've been a barista for about 2 years now at some independent coffee shop, it's okay except for getting below minimum wage, but it makes up for it by allowing me occasional B-F list celebrity sightings, cute guys to ogle, I get to eat/drink whatever I want all the time, and it's flexible enough so I can go to school/work my other job/go on trips.
Man, those silly Mexican women. Don't they realize who you are?
Mira, chica, yo soy es Troy Swain. Aprendir mi pronto.
Or something like that.
I still gotta talk to you about Guatemala, but I won't be going for a bit.
troy! that sounds awesome!
the thai boxing and jujitsu and eating esp.
there's a great body jewelry shop in DF if you want to go there just because; anapaula's really lovely.
Sure. Tell me about any place you think I should go to in DF!
That sounds relaxing.
I was in China for 2 weeks: Beijing, Xi'an, and Shanghai. It was pretty alright.
Unbelievable! I'm going to go play catch up on your posts right now!
I haven't made a post in years.
So tell me about it! Shit! Why did you go? Work or pleasure? What's some of the shit you saw?
I was a hypochondriac for a few weeks, but now my nerves have settled down.
In less than a month I start my summer shift, where I clean a high school eight hours a day, seven days a week.
Why were you a hypochondriac?
I had what I'm pretty certain was a pinched nerve from sleeping wrong on my back, and it made my arm feel weird, among other things. My most recent posts on my LJ are about that.
What I haven't posted about is my recent bout with a stomach bug and not being able to eat right for over a week until I got over it and my nerves settled down. This was just in the past couple weeks.
I've been spending too much time being inside and doing nothing, pretty much, and that was getting to me.
