Happy Leap Year – Feliz “Año Bisiesto”

It’s an año bisiesto this year (my new piece of vocabulary for the day). I made some goals for myself at the beginning of February, so let’s see how I did.


Here’s what I wanted to do this month, and whether or not I actually did it:

 1. Get my medical card. Done! Read about my experiences with Spanish health care here.

 2. Be more social.Yep! I went to fun stuff like Carnaval  and a language exchange.

 3. Blog more. Definitely. 

4. Learn a recipe. Yes, Spanish espinacas con garbanzos – check out my post (with a recipe!). 

 5. Schedule Catalan classes. No. Sigh.

 6. Don’t be so hard on myself. Working on it

So I’ll give myself 5/6, which isn’t too bad! For March, I want to:
  1. Travel more – which can include doing touristy things around here. 
  2. Try the super cute new panadería by my house I’ve been eying for weeks. 
  3. Catalannnnn. 
  4. Exercise more – actually use the yoga Groupon I bought, and bike instead of taking the Metro.
  5. Learn one more recipe, and go to one more language exchange night.
  6. Go to the beach more!
