Please check out my new blog, Quelle Belle: The Beauty Blog. I would really appreciate it! [Note: Considering the fact that I don't know any male makeup afficionados, I would say it's safe to say that this site is mainly for women.]

5 Days and a New Laptop (Maybe)

In 5 days, I head back to the US. Truth be told, I couldn't be happier in some ways, and I couldn't be more apprehensive in others. Happy to get out of the rain, to get back to the place I consider home, to see my friends, to go back to "normal" (whatever that is). Apprehensive to dive headfirst into my senior year, to apply to colleges, to decide what to do with the rest of my life.

I have some time to figure that out though. Right now what is troubling me is the fact that my laptop has practically fallen apart. It has served me well for more than four years, but I think it's time to let go. It's sort of a token to the past, this old laptop of mine. Stickers on the cover, stories I wrote when we first moved to Panama. It holds a lot of memories (not to mention a lot of things I need for school and work -- yikes!)

So, now not only do I have to repay my parents for that atrocious phone bill, but I also have to pay for a new laptop. Thankfully it's not actually new, but refurbished and from eBay, so that's not too bad. But losing my old laptop, though it was giving me a hard time (to the point of pulling out my hair as it froze in 5-minute intervals) will be difficult.

So I guess it's back to work for me. I guess that I am going to have to seriously work on managing my time better once I get back in school, because it's going to be a hectic time already, without the added pressure of needing to work to repay my parents about $700. Guess I really am growing up and learning to fend for my own. Exhilirating and frightening, but on the whole, I'd have to say pleasing. It's nice to know that even at 17 years old I have some talents that can be used to rake in a little dough.

P.S. What do you think of the new look?
