A lot of things have happened the past couple of days. First of all I changed host families AGAIN. I liked staying with Pori, I truly did, but my friend Stella and I started talking about maybe moving in together because we knew that we would have a lot of fun together and Stella has talked about how great her current host family is. After talking with our mentor and with both host families we were able to become roomies. I now live in Los Pacos with an older couple named Paco and Maria José. They're really sweet and take good care of us!
Other exciting news is that my mom has rented an apartment here in Fuengirola from December till June, so around the end of December I'll be moving in with her instead. It's very exciting and I'm looking so much forward to getting my own room and my own things. Living in a host family isn't bad but no matter how kind they are you never really get that "family feeling" and you never feel completely comfortable. You're always wondering if you're allowed to do this and that, and since they don't know English and my Spanish isn't perfect it's hard to be fully relaxed when you're having a conversation with them. But I'm very happy I got to spend a couple of months in different host families, because it's taught me a lot and it's a big part of the journey as an exchange student.
