Random: I’m pretty excited the Buffalo Bills fired Dick Jauron. I think It’s time for a new game plan.

Important News: It has been high season for protests. From multiple days where the Buenos Aires Subte has closed to teacher wage protests. Plaza de Mayo has been very busy. Maradona was suspended for 2 months for telling a reporter to “suck it” (not that nicely). He won’t miss the World Cup though, which starts this June! Uruguay just got into the World Cup.
It’s crazy that I’ve already been in Buenos Aires for almost 2 months. I feel like I don’t really know the city and that Spanish is still very far away. Time has been flying by and I’ve been rushing to get as much done as possible because I know time will only go by faster once I start ‘working’.
This week I checked a major mark off my To Do List by landing a job at Buller Pub in Recoleta. As of right now I’ll be working every night except Wednesday and Thursday, so we’ll see how that schedule fits into my master plan.
Last week I had the pleasure of meeting with some great people working and living in Buenos Aires.
