You won’t believe me, but I do realize the point of this blog is to talk about my move to Spain; the thing is, there’s not much to talk about right now. Apparently I have to wait until the end of this semester, finish the classes I planned to do here so I could certify them and ask for a place on the university. Summer will be a busy busy busy time for me… Right now, I’ll just continue to write creepy entries about my dog.
But I want to make clear that I’m doing an effort. I was checking again for residencies, only on Alcalá de Henares (Madrid) since I’m deciding that’s the place I want to go… I’m putting all my eggs in one basket, I know, I’m that irresponsible.
Ok, there are two places I’d like to live in… I’m actually voting for just one, but option number 2 doesn’t sound that bad after some research I made of other places, I’ll just say this: There’s a (just-girls) residency called “Slaves of Jesus Christ”.
Crossing out places that seemed a little bit strict or just plain creepy I end up with my two options that have a gym, library, pool, internet, study rooms, cleaning service, gas, electricity, water, blah blah blah.
So let’s start with option number 2, shall we?
There’re a couple of pros for this place (starting with not being a slave of anybody) like that they clean your room once a week; but there’s a feature which I’m not really sure how I feel about: food service. This residency is about 100 Euros more expensive than the other (€585, exactly), but this is because it includes breakfast and lunch. I’m kind of a baby when it comes to food, so if the place serves food that I like this is a big YAY!, if it doesn’t… Well, you know.
Also, I’d have to share a bathroom. I know, I’d survive I have shared a bathroom my whole life… But I’m not looking forward to share a bathroom with a stranger.
Oh! And there are pictures of the place… Like this one:
I’m sure these girls are really happy to be here, but honestly, I don’t give a damn. I really wanted a good picture of the room.

Now, if I could, I’d marry this place. I don’t care if it’s just an illusion of really well-made marketing, just for the fact that they made the place look so freaking cool, I’d have sex with the building.
This place doesn’t serve food, but the room includes a kitchen, which makes my whole effort of learning how to cook worth it; AND I’d have my own bathroom… Everything for the small price of €465!
Here are some pretty pictures, of course! (Without happy girls all over them)
Seriously now (or something close to it) do you guys have any advice of how to choose a place?
