I really find I have ZERO purpose in Georgia when I am not in school. This past week we had a 3 day snow day that was effective throughout the whole country—so it would be exciting to have a 5 day weekend except for the fact that its cold and there is nothing really to do if I leave my host family other then sit around at someone else’s place trying to stay warm.
Wednesday night I headed into Tbilisi to visit Duncan at his apartment. The whole night was ok at best—we ended up going to a bar filled with a bunch of question marks. From the white Estonian in one corner to the wannabe Georgian Rastas in the other it really wasn’t my scene. We decided to leave his roommates there and made our way back to the apartment to realize that they had “couch surfers” over and we would have to share a bed the size of a matchbox (no seriously, it wasn't even a big enough for him without me in it) together instead of me sleeping on the couch as per usual. That was legit one of the worst sleeps I’ve had in a very long time. The room had ZERO insulation and more than enough loud snoring to last me a lifetime. Long story short—never again. I’d much rather sit and die in Rustavi until the weather warms up then gallivant around in this “everywhere cold” country.
(This is what I actually look like right now)
I got to talk to Albart for 3 hours on Skype—that definitely made my Saturday night in awesome! I have never been home on a Saturday night in Georgia before. I was debating a bath before the impromptu Skype date but I figure I take one tomorrow at some point and maybe straighten my hair for the coming week, I don’t know. With all this free time I could maybe count how many hairs on my head there actually are. I’ve been home pretty much ever since Friday morning sitting on my bed just wasting time. I cleaned my closet, my room, did pretty much all my laundry except for what I have ON me, watched a movie and uploaded some old pictures I found on an old hard drive during the break on Facebook. I also (out of sheer boredom) found that if I scrape my house slippers along the carpet really hard over and over, I can clean it and get all the matted hair off of it much better than the vacuum cleaner. So my area rug has NEVER been/looked cleaner than it does right now! I had finished all my little self-imposed school projects before this whole lame “snow storm” thing hit so now I’m just playing the waiting game for Monday to roll around so I can be happy again.
