Hodge Podge

It's always the laziest of days that I forget to post. I am deeply for not posting about my boredom yesterday. I literally spent the day in my room, playing on the computer. I didn't have much cash, and I didn't want to go all the way to Kadikoy to get cash.

Today was no different. Work was EXTREMELY boring. I want work to keep me busy, but there is none. Everyone is busy with their own stuff, especially because a few people from the office are on vacation (they have to pick up the extra work).  Thus I spent today looking up computer games that I used to play growing up. It turned out to be a lot of fun...for about 5 min. At least another intern started today. He wasn't very talkative, but at least there was someone else to join in the misery.

My boss said my last day could be Wednesday. SCORE! He said then I could have time to do a little more traveling if I wanted. I don't really have the resources to do more traveling, but I really want to go to a beach. I would love to see the Black Sea, but the Black Sea beaches close to Istanbul are somewhat dangerous. The waves and undertoes are pretty strong (as told to me by my boss). Apparently there are lifeguards; caution should still be taken though. Well, luckily enough to get tan you don't need to get in the water. There are buses that runs to those beaches every day, so we'll see. My friend invited me to go to Alanya, but it is far and rather expensive to go there. It's also obnoxiously hot, as in you don't go outside between the hours of 11am-4pm. You'll melt like the Wicked Witch of the West. I haven't made any decisions yet, but I'm working on it and will let you know when I do!
