On Friday Claire mentioned to me wanting to go to Pichilemu(beach about 3hrs south of Santiago) but not wanting to organize the trip. I was keen on going, so I rounded up the troops and got a hostel reservation. Since it was our last day of spanish class, some of the girls had a party and we went out afterwards. Throughout the evening, one by one people came up to me to explain how they weren't going to go to the beach, since we were staying out so late. I was out so late that I caught the metro home at 6:30 and was in bed at 7am! I just slept in and figured I'd run in the afternoon, assuming that everyone had bailed on the beach trip.
So the enrollment for foreign students here is really weird, so I am currently attending the classes that I want to take, but I am not yet actually enrolled yet. I have til the 24th to enroll, and I will do so once my professor from Georgia Tech approves the course that I have chosen. So far these are the courses I am planning on taking. 1. Spanish Grammar 2. Español de America- linguistics course which compares the different types of spanish around latin america and the carribbean 3. Antropologia de America- discusses why society has become the way it is now, cause and effect, etc. I am still seeing a good bit of the people from my classes around campus. In both of my regular classes (not the grammar ones) I have friends to help me out, so that should be nice. I take a test on Tuesday to see which grammar level I am in and then that class will begin. I also might take a mountaineering class if there is still room left.
O yes... how could I forget to tell you that I went to a karaoke bar for the first time ever on Monday??? It was pretty fun, and since it was a Monday night, we were the only ones there. I sang quite a few times (noone goes up alone, so we all just went as a group multiple times). We also sang a few times in Spanish, which is terribly difficult.
I think that just about covers everything that happened in the past week!
