Ok, so I just spent 20 minutes crying because it is hot. And Annikah is sick and crabby. And it is dusty and dirty. But mostly because it is hot. Like I want to run around with ice cubes in my bra hot. Like I already took 4 cold showers today hot (I did not work out at all, I just sweat sitting). I had great intentions of working on language today, cleaning the house after our week away, and planning school stuff for this week but it is just too hot to function. I never thought heat would affect me like this but I am cranky, exhausted, fed up. I sat down to check email and saw that it was 44 degrees today in Chicago. It was 96 degrees here inside our house. I really miss home. Today is full of culture shock and doubt. Full of fear that I can never really adjust to living here. I know this will pass but I also want to acknowledge where I am this moment and in this space. I am just too hot to function.
I will update soon about our fabulous trip to the mainland!
