Happiness is this.



I couldn’t bring myself to get up this morning because moving made me feel sick I was so hungover. I didn’t even drink that much but the heat makes you far more drunk.
I eventually had lunch with the guys and went for a walk to the sea. It is like bathing in a hot bath, it’s so strange. I just sat down in it as it was really shallow and there was no one around for miles. I’ve never felt so at peace in my life. It just felt like I was sitting in paradise with all these palm trees and gorgeous mountains around me. Again, I can’t explain it, but happiness is this. I don’t know how I’m going to cope with coming back home. At first, I thought I’d be really homesick, and I hated it when I got here, I wasn’t sure if I would last 9 weeks, but everyone told us it wears off, and I’m beginning to feel it already. Sure I miss my family and friends back home, but I mainly wish they could be with me here so I’d never have to leave!
In the afternoon, we read for a bit, it was too hot to do anything. We were going to walk to town but it was stupidly humid and the heat burnt everyone. Luckily I only went out in small sections and kept covered so I got tanned, but didn’t burn :).
This evening instead of going out for the 4th night in a row, we’re going to chill with a few drinks at the bar here. There’s about 15 of us so it makes for a nice atmosphere. The other CRGS students have gone home today. We kept bumping into Caitlin Leydon last night… that was also weird.
**Later**
We didn’t end up drinking, we were both too tired so went back to our room and chilled, read books and then attempted to sleep. I couldn’t get to sleep at all and ended up crying I was so frustrated. I was not a happy bunny this evening.
