As of late, my life has conspired against me having much time to blog, much less any of that thing I barely remember called free time. And look, I realize Clooney and Co. would laugh at the idea of my busy few weeks being anything like their storm, but just because I live in Latin America doesn’t mean I don’t have first world problems, ok?
I do have first world problems. One of them being that too many fun things have come all at once. Soccer has started up again, and I am actually currently dead thanks to running so much in our game tonight. This is a zombie blog post. I hear zombies are all the rage these days now that vampires are kind of over. Right? Or have I got it backward?
I’ll be able to find out for myself soon enough because I’m headed to the US tomorrow! A friend is getting married, so I’m taking my annual trip home. Where I will shop till I drop, eat till I pop and find out about the current pop culture stance on zombies. I’m sorry, I couldn’t make zombies rhyme. I’ll also see friends and family and all that good stuff, plus I will soon see my husband again. He’s still gallivanting around Europe*, but he promises to meet me in San Francisco in a week.
PLUS – yes, there’s more – my friend Laura spontaneously came to Chile, which. was. awesome. We had the absolute best time, including my best ever trip to Valparaíso (posts to come, of course), but making silly faces and eating and drinking far too much doesn’t leave much time for things like sleeping. God, I miss sleep like you wouldn’t believe. I’m excited to get on the plane, pop one of my pills and just pass the eff out tomorrow night.
Oh right, pills. For the past month and a half, I’ve had a headache. That, as you can imagine, is kind of annoying. Just as I was fearing I might be the next Jennette Fulda, a neurologist prescribed pills that so far seem to be helping. These pills make me sleepy, however, which isn’t a great side-effect when I’m already staying up too late between all my fun and the MOUNTAIN (yes, all in caps) of work under which my team has been buried for the past few weeks.
The good news is that as a result of this headache, I had a brain MRI, and I now have confirmation that I not only have a brain, I have a brain in perfect working condition. So HA, internet haters.
And umm, that’s it. I have no snappy ending. Please refer to aforementioned deadness and headache and lack of sleep. The asterisk up there is supposed to go to me telling you about how I’m also gallivanting around Europe in photo form on the Emily in Chile Facebook page, which you should check out and like. Please.
Have a wonderful Friday, and if all goes to plan, I will be back this weekend coming at you from the northern hemisphere.
