At the moment I’m sitting in the living room with my mother cleaning her nails beside me and the air-conditioning on.

Yesterday she woke me up asking if I wanted to go shopping out of town. Of course I jumped right out of bed and started getting ready. I bought two pairs of pants – ones are ripped, high-waisted boyfriend jeans, and ones are plain black skinny jeans. I also bought a L’Oréal concealer, a Wet n Wild eyeshadow palette, an eyeshadow brush, sunglasses and a t-shirt.

In the evening I went to town for a drink with Vilma. I had a milkshake, some soft-serve ice-cream, and three cigarettes.

This morning I woke up at 10. All of us went to this river, then to the lake I’ve already spoken about (or at least I think I did). We went to this restaurant where we had lunch. All of a sudden I spotted one of the girls from my school working there as a waitress. I told Mum that I could get a summer job too if the girl had, since she was my age. She went to see the owner whom she knows, he came to speak with us, and he gave me the job. I liked his appearance as soon as I saw him, and I couldn’t think of who he reminded me of, but then I figured it out: there’s something on that face that just screams, “Tim Robbins!”

I’ll be working on weekends, starting at 1 pm. Tomorrow’s my first day, and, since the lake is some 20 kilometres away from my town, and I’ll most likely finish up pretty late at night, I’ll spend the night at my mother’s aunt’s second house.

When we got home I did my makeup and showered. Then I went to the pharmacy, and now I’m waiting for Mum to shower and get ready so I can do her makeup for the show that we’ll be attending tonight. The show will be performed by guest actors from a theatre whose style of comedy I really like. I’m excited to see it.
