In all honesty, I've probably spent too much time dwelling on the negatives, on the setbacks and difficulties, and not enough expending efforts to make my time here worthwhile. I guess it seems easier to sit back and complain than to really take things into your hands.
That being said, I won't be dissuaded from enjoying my time that remains. I have a number of papers to do but rather than despairing over them and drawing them out as I would at Cornell, I plan on getting them done as soon as possible. And then when that's finished, I'll have five weeks of travel before I go home! And all of it funded on my sister's dollar (that is, until I pay her back...)!
I still have a number of museums on my list to visit. I still have MACBA and Picasso and the Chocolate and the Maritime museums, and MNAC and the History of Cataluña and of the City to explore. I guess I have a pretty full plate until the end of the semester, and only 25 days or so to get it all done. Here's to pulling through!
