Today was a very fun day at school. Chile was playing
Holland at 12, so the whole school stopped learning around 11:20, and everyone
went to their classrooms (where students had brought TVs from home) and watched
My generation went to a big auditorium to watch the game all
together. Everyone had their faces painted (I brought the tattoos Manuel had
given me and passed them out to all my friends) and was wearing Chilean
jerseys, and we all watched the game intently.
Chile ended up losing 2-0 to
Holland, but it was a great game and it was even more fun because I was with
all my classmates and they kept singing rally songs and screaming at the ref’s
calls. After the game, Chichi, Thomas, Joaquin, and I ditched English class to
listen to Joaquin play guitar and talk. After school we had barras until 4:30.
Then I went home for a while before Pablo came over. He had come over with the
intention of studying math (I was to be the tutor), but we ended up just
talking and laughing and sharing good music that we knew the whole time. He had
once with my family, and it was a lot of fun all of us talking together. Pablo
is the kind of person who can have fun and be himself in any situation, which
is something I love about him. He is hilarious, and even though he spends a lot
of time making fun of me, we always have a great time together. He left around
9:30, which was late, and so after he left I just got in bed, watched a bit of
The Bucket List, and fell asleep.
