Time in Narva

We are about to start our sixth week in Narva and it’s really hard to wrap my mind around. Each day seems to go by faster and I feel like I’m running out of time. The days seem to blur together as I go about my daily routine, and as “boring” as Narva is compared to life on an American College Campus, I am constantly learning new things and questioning just as many. I believe having my mind so engaged all the time is the primary reason why the hours seem to pass so quickly. For example, today I woke up around 11, made breakfast, and then headed to the college to study for a few hours since the heat made it almost impossible to focus in the dorms. After studying for a couple of hours (that felt like 30 minutes), I had lunch at the college then headed back to the dorms around 4pm. I took a nap and overslept, waking up at 6pm. I woke up and went on a 30 minute run followed by a short work out. By the time I showered and changed, it was already 8pm! And after cooking burgers in the kitchen for dinner with a few of my classmates, I sit down to write this blog post and it’s 10pm! I don’t know where the time went, but I guess it’s because I am constantly doing something (or sleeping). And during the school week, time goes by even faster. On a good note, I was able to run into my little friends Katya and Roma that I mentioned in my previous blog post. We ran into them on our way home from the store and they were playing with a hanging carpet, and having the time of their lives. They were so excited to show us all of the money they had (probably less than 1 euro), so when Austin gave them some spare change, they were overjoyed. I’m definitely going to miss these adorable kids.
