I have been in Buenos Aires for a week and two days. I am waiting for the honeymoon phase to escape me. I keep finding myself clicking the little arrow on my ipad to show my current location. I am still having a hard time believing that I am towards the bottom of South America. 
This week has been incredible and exhausting. I grew up in a small northern Michigan town with a graduating class of 119. I am now calling home a city of more than 2.98 million people. This city has so much to offer. This week I took my first tango lesson and was told by the teacher that I should come take classes because I apparently have the feel for it. 
The highlight of my week has been going out. I don’t go out a ton in the U.S and I probably won’t be going out much once class starts. The other night we went to a bar called Jobs, which is a block from my apartment. Jobs is unique because they have board games, pool and best of archery. I have decided to change my name to Katniss Everdeen because on my first night I got a bullseye. 
My host family is very nice but different than my family in Spain. My señora was extremely motherly and attentive. My family here is a little reserved. I come and go and they don’t ask which is nice but different than what I am used to. All in all I am content with them and my situation. 
Last night I met with my language partner. A language partner is someone who is learning English so when we meet we switch between Spanish and English. I took the subway for the first time to San Telmo, a little more bohemian than my part of town. I met my partner at a hole in the wall restaurant and found her to be incredible. She is a 36 year old English teacher studying English literature at the University of Buenos Aires. She describes herself as a radical liberal and over wine and Peruvian ceviche we had one of them most intellectual debates/discussions I have had in a long time. We discussed everything from religion to government, education, socialism, Gaza, capitalism, marxism, and US-Argentine foreign policy etc. We were supposed to meet for an hour but ended up talking for three hours until we got kicked out because the restaurant was booked. It was truly incredible. 
 
My classes at my study abroad center start tomorrow. I am currently taking 19 credits but will be dropping 3 of them sometime this week. I am taking all in Spanish: a grammar class, creative writing, poetry, Urban History, and Argentine Foreign relations. I also start on the local university, Universidad de Ciencias Empresariales y Sociales, where I will be taking along side Argentine students a class on Touristic Geography in America. I am a little nervous for this mostly because the final is most likely going to be an oral exam in front of three profs. 
Estará bien, espero. I am about leave to drink some mate in the park, caio.

"White men make up approximately 36% of the population, but commit 75% of mass shootings. What would be called terrorism by any other skin tone is suddenly some mysterious unnamed disease. We as a society are perfectly happy to further stigmatize mentally ill people, who are far more likely to be victims of violence than commit violence, in the service of protecting white supremacy and male entitlement."
