    Hey, sorry for the delayed response. Crazy things always going on!

    Sounds like a pretty interesting experience! Although I imagine that would feel a bit rough having to work with only what you know in Spanish because the family doesn't know English. I would have the roughest time trying to work around something like that.

    And man, your parents never cease to amaze me with how over-the-top control freaks they are. You're half a world away and she still can't lay off. >.< As I said before, when you graduate, RUN. And if you cut them out of your life completely, I would absolutely understand. My own mom had to do that with her parents.

    And hey, those are great photos! You have a great smile and it definitely looks like you've seen plenty of fascinating sites! And yep, I saw the Mona Lisa at the Louvre, also. It's kind of underwhelming, isn't it? XD

    Hope you continue to enjoy your time there and thanks for sharing these great pictures!

    Thank you for the shoutout at the beginning of the entry!
    Where does Britney come from? Did you know her before going to Spain?
    Good luck with your classes, your volunteer work, your writing and your art! And enjoy your trips! :)
    Sorry to hear about the emotionally abusive situation with your mom. I can't imagine how difficult it must be for you. Poor Sloane. :/ It's a good thing that you went to therapy last semester and that your study abroad allows you to get some distance from your mom, though.
    However, I don't understand why you don't want to buy a hair dryer. Even if you don't want to use one, you could still buy one and not use it, so that your mom could no longer yell at you over that. So, why don't you want to buy/use a hair dryer? If you don't want to answer this question, I will understand.
    Last but not least, thank you for sharing some pictures of you! You are a very cute young woman. :)
    Britney is from my college! We didn't know each other before coming to Spain but she's a medical student so there's not really any way we could've known each other since medical classes are hosted in another part of out college's campus than mine. Even now we only have one class together so we only really see each other at home.
    Yes it's not a huge deal at the moment. The abuse weights on me but I've gotten better about not really paying much heed to it.
    Oh I did end up buying the hairdryer because she yelled at me. The problem is I'm probably never going to use it, and since I had to pay for it with my own money, that's roughly 30 euros I can't spend on something else that'd I would much rather have.

    @Suicune's Fire Thank you very much for your comment! All the teachers I have met so far gave me a good first impression, so I hope I will be able to confirm that they are nice teachers in the coming weeks. :) And I look forward to my birthday, haha.

    I'm sooo glad things are going well for you so far, Cleo! It's so great that you've spent time with two new people who are friendly, and that your teachers are not mean (which hopefully means they're nice xD).

    Woohooooo!!! Having a day off on your birthday is fantastic! I hope you have a wonderful day. :3 It's not far off now!

    Funny how it was arctic disaster all last week and this week it's been as high as 50F!

    Yeah, I don't do too well with rapid-fire temperature changes. :P

    Oh wow. I’m not sure if it’s in Michigan, but I actually found a picture many years ago about Hell freezing over, it just didn’t involve the tragedy of that story.
