Howdy dears!

I hope you’d had a great week since my last post, I  had one myself. Since last Wednesday I went to work 5 days, had 2 days off, had 1 night out with the girls and made apple cinnamon cake. I think it was a pretty good week, right?

And to top it all off, today my best friend told me she was totally into going on vacations together!

In early December, I took a job at a hotel here in Buenos Aires -mainly- as a waitress. I like it there, i mean i’ve never worked as a waitress before, so it was a good opportunity to learn more about the whole F&B depertment in a hotel.

So the same day i had my last final in school, i started working. Nine hours a day, 5 days a week  for 3 months. Easy, right?

Well thing is, i now realized that as soon as my contract ends, my school year begins … not such a great idea now, is it? This means i have basically no vacations until NEXT year. And that of course being no vacation at all, since i’ll go to the States to work next winter!

I couldn’t get my head arround it, i would have gone nuts if i’d done this! Therefor, i told the people at the hotel that i was terminating my contract, ergo, turning in my resignation by the end of this month, so that i could have at least 2 weeks of doing whatever it was i wanted to do right before starting college again.

I did this like a week ago, and i’ve been wanting to ask my friend if she wanted to go on a little road trip with me for a couple of days, as a symbolism of “my year has finally ended, let’s get the new one rolling, please!”

Today we finally got to talk about it and we decided that we are taking perhaps 3 days to go to a very close small town called Chascomus. It has a lagoon and a lot of “estancias” that work as rural hotels… such a lovely place to go to and relax, go horse back riding or canoeing!

My mind is already by the pool, reading a book… it does not want to go back to work tomorrow, but it has to, i still have 20 more days to go before i can stop and make my braing go blank!

Meanwhile, as to relax a bit before starting my week, i made Apple Cinnamon Cake yet again. The girls at work have been demanding this cake for 2 weeks now, so it was about time i made it!
