St. Patrick’s Day was interesting. 21 of us tried to go out and go to an Irish pub. I think it was one of only Irish pub’s in Athens, and it was definitely was one of the best. It took us a while to find it. When we finally got there, it was packed. I used the bathroom and we ended up leaving. Everyone dispersed, and Sebastian and I went to a bar close to his apartment. It was very nice, and very quiet. They gave us free shots and we sat and talked for a couple of hours.
I’m really upset to say that for the next month the only way I will be able to communicate with anyone will be through snail mail. As of right now, we’re the only apartment out of 4 that doesn’t have the Internet, although the other ones only have it because they can steal a wireless signal.
I’m also scared to think that my living habits may have to change. No internet, no TV, no phone. We don’t even have constant hot water. You have to turn the water heater on half an hour in advance to take a shower. The apartment is huge though, four bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a kitchen, living room, and multiple balconies. I just wish it was a little more technologically advanced.
I thought I may actually have to go to bed early and sleep in the dark for a whole night, but it’s 5am and my roommate and I can’t sleep. I fell asleep at like 10:45, but woke up at 3. We’re currently watching one of the two English stations, CNN and NBC.
