Hair cut

So, not much to report this week. I am getting organized for all my final projects. I had to take some time to get my haircut today (moments after I cut off that mustache- it was getting in my mouth); I just couldn't handle it anymore. Probably the longest haircut I have ever had. The guy cut the entire thing with scissors and a straight razor- no trimmers, no clippers, just scissors, comb and a razor. Anyway, Im not too picky. It was a $3 haircut, after all.

As far as all the stuff that is less important than my haircut goes: Im cranking out a 19th century literature paper about Incanism in the works of 6 authors; god it's exciting! (not really).

This evening I am going to see one of the most popular soccer teams in Lima- Universitaria, play against Huancayo. It is supposed to be a pretty good game with a lot of people in attendance. Ill take some pictures and post them up here later.

I got notice from the social center that I am trying to do my language project with. The dates they have are the 27th of June- 30th. This is just 6 days before I leave the country, and is also the week of my final exams, but I am going for it. I will have to arrange two of my exams at times other than they were scheduled, as well as finish a couple of important papers about a week before they would have been due, but I think the trip to Cuzco will be worth the extra work.

Somewhere in there I also have to rewrite my project proposal in Spanish so the folks at the center can have a good idea of what I am trying to work on. Lots of challenges to come, but things are coming together. It feels like there is so little time to do everything, but I am finding that you can accomplish a lot more in a short amount of time than you initially think you can.

Hopefully next time around I will have more to show than a haircut. Thanks for reading.
