Estrella Explores

I’ve lost my university degree

I’ve just gotten off of a long Skype session with my sister. I needed to find my degree to get it validated for South Korea. Well, it isn’t where I thought it was (stored in a bin in the storage area of our basement). I’m fairly certain that’s where I left it, but she swears it wasn’t there.

I decided to look up getting a replacement degree just in case. It’ll cost me at least $100 and I may not even be able to get it because I need to get the request form signed by a notary public, but I live in Spain right now, so I emailed my convocation office and asked if it was okay….and now I’m freaking out a little and think that I might not be going to South Korea this fall if I can’t work all this out.

It’s been a bit of strange day today. Everyone (literally, everyone) that I usually hang out with has gone off on a trip for part of the week for spring break. My regular partner in crime Sergio left Madrid and went to see his grandparents yesterday. I’m having a staycation due to lack of €€€.

I have barely spoken today, having only 4 brief conversations: one with two of my roommates, ordering an iced caramel grande from the barista at Toma café and saying “si” to the French girl in the café who asked if the chair next to me was free. 

It’s a nice break for a change, to be alone with my thoughts for a long period of time, but I don’t think I can go on for more than another day or two.

I just re-designed my blog over at www.estrellaexplores.com. It literally took hours. Hours of resizing images, uploading them and then adding excerpts for the new layout. However, I am very pleased with the outcome and I think it looks a lot better.
