Wow! I haven’t written on here in a while, sorry about that. But I have some updates haha I finished my first year of college last week with all As and Bs except two Cs :/ which I guess isn’t too bad considering it was all on me except english cus my teacher was just really bad, oh well! I also went to get my permit a couple days ago and failed because of one stupid sign lol it’s ok tho cus I plan on studying a bit more and then going back of course. I’m still working at the restaurant and I’m working about 20 hours a week which is pretty good in my opinion because I’im only part time and I get paid pretty good for the amount of work I do. Well yea I think those are the only major updates I have I hope that I will be able to write I bit more now that I am on summer vacation :)
After literally a year I finally got my Colombian cedula. I could have probably gotten it a couple months ago but we were just to lazy to get it, plus it’s not like I can do anything with it here so I wasn’t in much of a rush to get it. Only reason i wanted it was because I wanted to see how it would look haha but I’m pretty glad I was finally able to get it even thought I look super serious in the picture. Now the last type of paperwork that I have to get since turning 18 and getting DACA is my permit/license. I plan on going on friday the 29th, the day after my 19th birthday so that I would only have to hold my permit for about 2 month and then test out to get my license. I’m pretty excited about that , and now that i got my job back at the restaurant I was working at a while back I’m going to be using my paychecks to save for a car. Even though i’m not working as much as I would like to right now because of school I know that once summer starts most of the time I plan to work and definitely save!

OMG you guys are not going to believe what happened to me today. OK so I have a little Vera Bradley id wallet thingy and in it i had my bus fare card, my college id, my WORK PERMIT CARD, and a couple dollars and today without noticing I accidentally left it on the bus as I got off. I went most of the day without noticing until I went to put my phone in the pocket that I normally but the wallet in and I saw that it wasn’t there so I panicked a little since I was in class. So I texted my dad who was busy and couldn’t pick me up so my aunt ended picking me up. I came home and called the bus lost and found number and the first two times that I called it didn’t work so I called again and had to click a different number and was transferred to the right place. A lady answered and asked me what bus I had lost it on and my name and right when I told her my name she was like “yea we have it” which at that point I almost cried from relief and excitement. She told me where to go pick it up so my aunt took me and I was able to pick it up and everything was in there, even the couple quarters I had in there. That was literally the scariest moment of my life but I’m so glad some one turned it in to the lost and found or else i’d be SCREWED! My parents were pissed at me too when I told them I had lost it so good thing I found it. Long story short DON’T CARRY YOUR WORK PERMIT CARD, unless you’re going in for a job.
