Yo soy...

So I decided that since it has been over a week since I last updated, and I am really not ready to study for my final exam tomorrow or write an essay or really do any homework right now, I will give you a small little update.

So I am not sure if you all know, but the television show ‘Ugly Betty’ was based off of a Colombian comedic “novella” called Yo soy Betty, la fea. Right now they are playing reruns of it on television and it is watched religiously by my papa tico, mama tica, and sister. At seven o’clock every night they run around yelling “Once, once” (11, because that is what channel it is on) and “Betty, Betty, Betty!” And I have to admit I am totally hooked on it. I cannot really understand most of what is being said, but I definitely know what is going on. And when the weekend comes I am literally out of my mind because episodes only play during the week.

Well, my family just found all of the episodes on YouTube and we have been watching it to get ahead. But it’s almost over, like only a few more episodes until it is done forever, and I seriously don’t even know what I am going to do when we finish (well I actually do, I am watching it from the beginning on YouTube). 

So that is the exciting news of my life in Costa Rica. Next week I will be going on a field trip to Nicaragua set up by USAC. I will definitely have some great stories to share. It is going to be a lot of fun and I am so excited!
