nnr I am so anxious!! for my upcoming big hiatus. apparently I am loads more dependent on RP than I thought? it is weird to think about and also I am worried I will not be enjoying South Africa as much as I should be which in turn is makin' me worry about my priorities and so I am a LOT
for not a lot of reason at all! also I do not want to leave France yet, it is so nice, even if I can't communicate very well. ALSO ALSO I am worried I won't be able to keep up like on hikes and stuff, because while I am decently fit I am not very fast, especially when hills are involved. also I do not enjoy walking at other people's paces!
I keep meaning to talk about the foam party for the benefit of Hammie but idk I find recaps of my life and stuff to be sort of exhausting. I don't know how this got started, I used to enjoy them so much! anyway it was sort of like being in a bubble bath with all your clothes on and your friends, only with dumb music and lots of creepy people. at one point it was higher than my head and that was when I was done for the night. I got REALLY ANGRY though at the end of the night when I found out some guy had grabbed my friend and held her arms down so as to dance with her. that is assault and it is NOT OKAY, jesus christ club dudes. I think she's pretty over it by now, but I can't be totally sure. she seems good? I really really wish I had opportunity to punch that dude, but at that point in the evening I was shivering over a plate of fries. to conclude: the foam part was fun, but it was at a club, and clubs are horrible places with horrible people, except for the good ones with shows in, which are hardly even clubs anyway.
TODAY we went canyoning which is exhausting as fuck but also pretty enjoyable. it mostly involves climbing up things and then jumping off, also hideous wetsuits. I liked the swimmy bits, also it was beautiful, but the wetsuits are really hard to climb in and I had these giant canvas boat shoes instead of proper shoes for that sort of thing. we saw nude hippies though! exciting.
gosh I will try to update before we leave but YOU KNOW ME so if I don't get a chance to say so, have a great month! I will try and keep a journal in Africa, it will be analog but perhaps I could transcribe the nice bits like with animals and people and so on. We'll see!
