I fall back asleep and awake from the school across the street having what looks to be soccer try-outs. I want to play is all I can think. I open up all the sliding windows from the fourth floor apartment to allow the bustling sounds ooze through the window. I feel rested but exhausted. I keep having these moments of clarity that I am in Ecuador to stay but not really sure if it has clicked. I am trying to allow my self to absorb this transitional time so that the shininess of this experience doesn’t where off too soon.
I will go eat lunch today with family. Could not have planned it any better that today is my uncle Caesar(Tio Loco) birthday. He is the craziest of all the uncles with no boundaries outside of his career. Its scary to think he is a doctor but have seen him in action and brings all the discipline he needs when necessary. Ceasar will disappear for days yet when there is a family gathering he always shows up, even if he is three hours late. Ceasar lives life to the fullest, not a care in the world or about what others think. I want to be more like this. I have moved to Ecuador to live a simpler life without the opinions of others. I will have to shed some of my fears, experiences, and past memories to be able to grow into the person I want to become. This is exciting time and I can’t wait to share. Please note that I by no means am an professional writer so please excuse any grammatical errors or misspellings. The more I speak spanish I do believe the worse my english will become, and I am okay with that. Its all apart of the journey!
