Espeeeeeaking the espaniiiiiiish: A

Starting a life in a foreign country: B
In this aspect I think I have had both successes and failures. Right now I feel like my life is much more in Spain than it is in the US. Its kind of a strange feeling but I am really happy with my life here. However, I still feel like I have no close Spanish friends. I have my friends on the frisbee team who have become like a family for me but I still feel like there is no one I relate to like I do my American best friends. I can't decide if this is something cultural or if I am not as extroverted in Spanish.

I have to say with all the challenges that come with a bilingual and bicultural relationship, I have found a really great boyfriend here(and guide to Spain). I probably should write about him more but sometimes its hard to put it all out there on the internet. He has been a big part of my time here and Spain and I have done tons of Spanish-y things that I would have never done without him. Gracias cari!

I tried not too be too hard on myself haha. But, I think I have done pretty well in the last 2 years and hope to continue this year as well. I love Spain and I think it loves me back!
