I keep forgetting to blog. Once again, too many things have happened since I’ve last written.
Yesterday was a long day of work. It included a long walk in the pouring rain from one hostel to the other hostel and I had to carry a boys’ luggage while it was storming. So, I walked from Campiello San Stefano [a square near the hostel I live/work at] to the other hostel, called Castello, which is about a ten minute walk from Piazza San Marco and back again. When I was working at Castello I organized a potluck with the guests there. The plan was to meet back at the hostel around 7. Nino, my boss, was very happy. He told me to invite people from The Academy, which is the hostel I work at. So, come 6 o’clock the people I met earlier that day came back to the hostel with fine wine and tiramisu cake! I was looking forward to dinner and relaxing with the people I met all day. Long story short, when the potluck started I had to walk a boy to The Academy. Once I was getting to walk back to the potluck with other people from my hostel I got a call from the boss and was basically was “uninvited” to the dinner that I organized because there wasn’t enough room for the people Nino told me to invite. So, I didn’t get to hangout with the people I met earlier that day.
So, I met new people from The Academy and took them out to Campo Santa Margherita. We had a good time and stopped back into The Academy around midnight to use the bathroom and head towards the Rialto Bridge. My boss was there and called me “lazy” in front of the 4 guests. The guests were all shocked and couldn’t believe he said that. I was offended, but then quickly blew it off and realized that he doesn’t know what in the heck he is talking about because he is never around. I wake up at 8 every morning, clean for 3-4 hours, check people in and out of the hostels, walk all over Venice showing people around, and at night time I take the guests out. I wake up at 8 or 9 and don’t go to bed until around 2 in the morning. My boss also wants me to lie to people and give them a fake name in case they leave good reviews. Today I want to go home and see my mommy and daddy.
Today I’m very tired. I woke up at 8 and had to walk to Castello. I’ve not been eating well and ending up puking 3 times at work while cleaning. I finished cleaning and headed back to The Academy and slept. Anna, the girl I work with, took care of me. She is super awesome and has been helping me learn Italian.
I’m tired. Yeah, this is a crummy post. Aside from being tired and whatnot, I’ve been having a blast. The guys I took out last night were awesome. Nicolas from Chile, Jie from Taiwan, Justin from Australia, and Kevin from Canada. Oh, last week was awesome. Gene, from Australia, stayed at The Academy for 3 nights and I was able to go to the beach, Lido, with him and another girl from California. And no it wasn’t a nude beach. How unfortunate! ;)
